Here are some products that have not been given their proper due.  After having tried these for a couple of months I wanted to share and let you know why these were a good purchase.
Hempz Yuzu & Starfruit Daily Herbal Body Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30
"Hempz Daily Herbal Body Moisturizer with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is a lightly scented, weightless daily moisturizer that helps hydrate, protect and improve skin's overall health and appearance. Enriched with 100% pure natural hemp seed oil and Hempz Signature Citrus Fruit Complex, this perfectly balanced formula delivers moisture to skin while helping to protect skin against the effects of free radial damage and harmful UV rays. "

                                    Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Glow Multi Palette
I love everything about the Bronze Goddess Collection and pick up the newest things each year because many sell out.  I have bought 2 of these - just in case!!  The suble glow is so lovely! (Currently sold out at Macy's)

These purse inserts are a great gift idea.  There are plenty of pockets to keep things organized without adding weight to your bag.

I found this ombre blush & bronzer at a dept store and love the colors!
These are perfect for various skin tones and it is easy to get the right amount of color without over doing it!  They each came with a small brush and are great for travel.

This needs to be seen by all consumers:
I did not know dumpster diving for cosmetics was a thing!  Just writing this gives me the creepy-crawlies and even more so when I saw the news report!  There is nothing I want that badly.  The sad part is some are selling items and not disclosing where the products came from.  This would explain how high end products are on auction sites selling below wholesale- which the average person cannot get.
(I had published this previously but here are some updates)
I will leave you with these articles!!!

A Pasadena YouTube star says his dumpster diving has turned up a treasure trove of goods, especially cosmetics.
With more than 31,000 subscribers, Rich Lux is hoping to be a YouTube star.

His passion is makeup and fashion, especially high-end and luxury products. He likes to test those products and review them for his followers.
"My favorite brands are Givenchy and Chanel," Lux said.
But since Lux doesn't have a big budget, he goes dumpster diving for some cosmetics.

We went along with him on a trip to the Ulta dumpster.
"Here you go. Let's see what we can find," Lux said. "We're looking for luxury makeup, Miss Thing."

We scored big after diving into the second dumpster.
While Lux says that some people rolling by his dumpster diving hauls give him the side-eye...

"Look. I am not bothered, Miss Thing. People are looking at me like I am crazy but I am getting the deals - expired make up companies throw away and you can get it in the dumpster for free," Lux said.
From the Dollar Store dumpster to diving behind the Ulta, Lux said he has not been bothered by authorities.
"The worse thing that could happen is if a security guard or a police officer tells you to get off the property. That's pretty much it. You just have to respect it and leave," Lux said.
We don't recommend that you try this, because there are trespassing signs on some properties.

Waste Management responds:
Since our story aired, Waste Management responded with a warning to think twice before you go dumpster diving for these high-end cosmetics.
Greta Calvery of Waste Management public affairs says "it is a massive understatement to say that there are risks."
"In fact, people are gravely injured and people die. It's more than a risk, it is a very sad reality," Calvery writes to Eyewitness News. "Families are torn apart and our hearts break when that happens. And in our industry, it happens."
This person openly states she sells things gathered from dumpsters!

Please do not risk the health of your skin to save a few dollars!

New things will be listed everyday as the brick & mortar shop is closed.

 Pink isn't just a color ~ it's an attitude!

  1. Amazing post, dear, so nice and interesting! Great products!

    New post is on my blog! Visit me, Maleficent

  2. палетка хайлайтеров просто шикарна

  3. Interesting warning about dumpster cosmetics. I have never heard of that. Thanks for sharing at Home Sweet Home

  4. I have known people who dumpster dive for food because they cannot stand that unopened products go into the dumpster (not because they don't have money for food). Which I agree is quite wasteful, but you will never catch me digging in a dumpster for anything. Very interesting post! Thank you for sharing your cosmetic finds and for linking up with me!


  5. Hey, these are some great suggestions! Thank you!

  6. I love the purse inserts! My husband would too, as it makes him crazy when I ask him to pull something from my purse for me (while I'm driving).
    Thanks for sharing in the GRAND Social link party!
