Products I Finished in 2014 – New Year, New Products!

When most people think about the new year, they probably think “new year, new me” but I think “new year, new, products!” I finished a couple of favorites in 2014, and I can’t wait to either make repurchases, or move on to other products. Here’s what I finished in 2014.

  • Lindi Face Serum
  • Dr. Brandt Pores No More
  • Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel
  • Dr. Brandt Face Cream
  • Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate
  • Biodara Face Serum and Créme De Clay Purifying Mask

Lindi Face Serum: I love this product! It was the first product I wrote about on I Sort of Beauty. The serum is super soothing and silky soft. I would definitely repurchase this.

Dr. Brandt Pores No More: Hands down, one of the best blackhead extractor masks I have ever used. I love that the mask dries into a darker blue color when it’s done and ready to be removed. I need to get this again for 2015!

Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel: 2014 was all about natural products for me. I love that this peel is made of organic, fruit-derived hydroxy acids, raw sugar cane, and antioxidant-rich vitamins—A, C, and E. Will definitely purchase the full size product.

Dr. Brandt Face Cream: Eh. I liked it, but didn’t love using it. I preferred using other moisturizers, so will not be seeing this product in 2015.

Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate: I recently got another one. Why? Because it worked so damn well I felt like I didn’t need any makeup. Love, love, love this stuff! Saying hello to soft, bouncy skin in 2015.

Biodara Face Serum and Créme De Clay Purifying Mask: I wrote about Biodara recently last year. I took the products with me on my trip to Jamaica in October. It was the perfect set to pamper myself with while vacationing. Will I repurchase? I already have!

  • Amika: Perk Up Dry Shampoo
  • Hello Body Cream
  • MAKE Dual Phase Eye Makeup Remover
  • Supergoop! Forever Young Hand Cream
  • Imperial Repair Hand Therapy
  • Supergoop! CC Cream

Amika: Perk Up Dry Shampoo: This was my first love (for dry shampoo, that is). I have never used dry shampoo before. I always thought that if I washed my hair every other day or every 2-3 days, I didn’t need dry shampoo. But after using Amika, I realized that there are so many benefits to using dry shampoo. I use it the day after I shower to keep my hair nice and voluminous.

Hello Body Cream: I didn’t love this product, but I didn’t hate it either. It smelled delicious and went on smoothly, but I don’t think it’s hydrating enough. Will not see this product in 2015.

MAKE Dual Phase Eye Makeup Remover: I only found one makeup remover that I loved in 2014, and this product is not it. The remover is not tough enough for eye makeup removal. I won’t be seeing this product in 2015 either.

Supergoop! Forever Young Hand Cream: I don’t use enough hand creams, but after discovering Supergoop! I’m addicted.

Imperial Repair Hand Therapy: I loved the smell of this hand cream. There wasn’t enough in this sample, I will need to repurchase for 2015!

Supergoop! CC Cream: I have been seeing and hearing the rave about CC creams, but I don’t think this was the best CC cream for me. Will keep hunting for a CC cream to add to my beauty arsenal in 2015.

    I finished MAC’s Lightful Essence & Moisture Infusion.

    I picked up Pores No More in December, used it a few times – but haven’t made up my mind yet. Also tried the Juice Beauty mask years ago.. I remember enjoying it, and so may have to give it another whirl this year.

    I really want to try the Dr. Brandt Pores No More mask! I’ve tried the pore refiner primer version and love it. I’ve been on the hunt for new masks later and I think I’ll add that one to the list. 🙂

    Great roundup! I’m not terribly in love with the Pores No More, but maybe that’s because I have stronger stuff that seems to work a little faster. I will say I love that it doesn’t itch/burn like some of it’s more acidic counterparts.

      Thanks! Would love to know what else you’re using… I feel like Pores No More is just the right amount of intensity for my skin but would love to try others as well! Any good recommendations? Thanks for reading. xo

    I wasn’t crazy about the Harvey Prince Hello lotion either. What didn’t you like about the Supergoop CC Cream? I’ve been hearing good things about it.

    • isortofbeauty says:

      I think the CC cream wasn’t moisturizing enough for me. I thought it dried out my skin a bit and looked a bit too cakey. I think it’ s all about skin type… I heard it’s great for some people as well, just didn’t work for me :-/
