What Was the Last Face or Body Beauty Product You Finished?

Published in: Just For Fun

I’m talking “down to the last drops, squeezing the life out of the tube, banging the bottle against the side of the sink” finished. Mine was this now unfortunate tube of Pacifica Malibu Lemon Blossom Body Butter. Yes, I cut it in half to extract every last drop (my precious!).


How about you? What was the last face or body beauty product you finished?

  5. KAREN says:

    A Bath and Body Works Tutti Dolce(remember that line??) Amaretto shower gel…. oh, and loreal studio effects primer souffle …


  6. Tania says:

    St. Ives Restoring 24 Hour lotion. Love that stuff and yes it lasts and the smell is delish. Yay no more itchy dry thighs! The beauty is that I always get a new one when I’m low so when the old one is out the new one is in.

  7. Heidi says:

    Lumene’s Vitamin C Radiance Day Cream. Fabulous stuff!

  8. Georgia says:

    I’m v. close to finishing my VS Grapefruit Lime & Mint lotion. I love finishing lotions! They take so long though

  9. Fieran says:

    Clarins Hydra Quench Cooling Creme Gel and Biotherm Lait Corporel. I love finishing up products as I feel that I really got my money’s worth. Definitely no buyer’s remorse there.

  10. Kate Williamson says:

    MAC Cleanse Off Oil. One of the few cleansing oils that doesn’t break me out and it gets everything off.

  11. Liz! says:

    Clean&Clear pore perfecting spf 15 moisturizer…doesn’t make me oily or break out. When I replaced it, I noticed they had a new product, a mattifying spf 15 moisturizer in the same line…and I like it even better! Didn’t think that was possible.

  12. steph b says:

    CeraVe pm moisturizing lotion and Bath and Body Works Rainkissed Leaves Shower Cream. Wish they hadn’t discontinued this great, grassy, fresh scent.

  13. Nina says:

    several actually!

    st ives vit e lotion – the huge pump bottle
    a japanese brand shampoo
    a japanese brand conditioner
    a small tube of bath and body works foot cream

    and … i think i have a week to go in my current bottle of studio fix fluid! 🙂

  14. Karen says:

    MAC Strobe Cream – It lasts forever and when it (finally) got what I thought was the end, I had to pound the container on the table to get the last drops. Turns out there was still about a month’s worth left!

  15. Maggie says:

    LUSH shower gel in snow fairy. This smells so good. It only comes out during the holidays so I bought two knowing I would go through it. That’s how good it is.

  16. korres 24-hour wild rose moisturizer. i don’t normally finish skincare products as i find i get bored when there’s less than 1/3 left, but i really LOVE this moisturizer so i wiped it clean 🙂

    L’Occitane verbena shea butter cream. Live that stuff!

  18. Oh my gosh, I hardly ever finish anything. If I buy something I really like I end trying to hoard it and use it as little as possible because I’m afraid it will run out… even if it is readily available at stores to purchase again. I think I have a little OCD, haha.

    • Sarah says:

      Glad to know I’m not the only hoarder. Mine is half from buying something and then being scared to try it. And half from hoarding the ones I try and like. And then there are the ones I tried but didn’t like but keep anyway just in case. I just went through my face stuff and it was amazing how many containers I had laying around. 😉

  19. Krisin says:

    I’ve finished quite a few recently. Origins Brigher by Nature Moisturizer, Neutrogena something something stress acne body wash (so disappointed this is discontinued), and Philosophy Purity.

  20. Cassie says:

    I scraped the last of my Clinique anti blemish moisturiser into a sample pot after decimating it with my scissors. Astonishing how much product was left around the neck area! Actually did a post about it too ^^ Great cream for when I overindulge with the sweets and am on active breakout-prevention.

  21. Kate & Zena says:

    Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion. I don’t stop when the pump stops pumping…oh no. There’s ton of lotion left. I bang, scrape and smash every last morsel of both versions of that lotion.

  23. Dirty Works Hot Salt Body Scrub – Doesn’t have loads of salt but has a lovely body mud consistency and that feels really good on a cold day. There was some at the bottom of the tub that I couldn’t get out because it hardened a bit like cement and I had to get one of my scrub spatulas to dig it out.

  24. Raquel says:

    BBW cashmere hand lotion 🙁 I also cut the tubes in half 😛

  25. mkdallas says:

    Philosophy 3-In-1 “Cherry Christmas” body wash (one of the holiday offerings)…it smelled just divine; a sour cherry fragrance, not a cherry candy odor.

  26. Philosophy Amazing Grace shower gel and firming emulsion lotion. Yummmmm!!!!

  29. Emma says:

    Bobbi Brown Rich Cream Cleanser. I always did this – you should see how mutilated my tube was! But it was even more important this time as they discontinued it, sob.

    Clinique’s Super Rescue Antioxidant Moisturizer in dry-combination. I absolutely love this basic moisturizer that works so well.

  38. joods says:

    For me: Jane Iredale “Dream Tint SPF 15” tinted moisturizer. Love it…uses titanium dioxide for sun protection. On my second tube.
    And Burt’s Bees “Milk & Honey Body Lotion”. Lushly moisturizing w/out greasiness, and the smell…de.vine! Sadly it was “reformulated”, which translates to messed w/ perfection. Not at all the same product. 🙁

  39. Kelli says:

    Revlon Colorstay Foundation- I just killed my 3rd bottle of this. I wear it on days when I know I will be taking pictures.

  40. Charisse says:

    I love PACIFICA products! But anyway, I’ve finished and squeezed every single last drop of my Yes to Carrots intense repair hand cream. I have really dry hands and they feel so soft and moisturized afterwards! 😀

  41. Alexandra says:

    Embryolisse-Lait crème, this is my go-to hydrating cream for the day, perfect for foundation il gives a little glow to offer a good surface to stick too

    Love this cream, makes my skin gorgeous, I went yesterday to Sephora to get a new foundation and the skin specialist tought I was 25, based on my skin, I’m over 30 !!! Yeah !!

  42. Elspeth Shell-Moyer says:

    La Roche Posay Effaklar gel cleanser. I’ve finished three of them. They keep my breakouts at bay without triggering flaking and redness. Love.

  43. Jessica says:

    Aveeno Body Wash in Moisturizing and Calming (two separate products).

  44. Kay says:

    I’m constantly going through tube of Avene Trixera Selectiose Emollient Cream for my Eczema!

  45. Soos says:

    I cut a deluxe sample tube of Natura Bisse Diamond Extreme Eye cream just like that, to get every last bit! Now I’m starting a tube of Replenix Eye Repair – so far so good!

    • ashley says:

      Ooooh I’m down to the last dregs of my Soap&Glory Sugar Crush too…. But the good news is that they’re supposed to be bringing their products back to the U.S. in September! I don’t know if I can wait 5 more months though.

  47. ann says:

    Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream! LOVE IT!

  48. michelle says:

    I thought i would never finish any product bec i always see new ones i want to try. bad habit i know. but i recently finished a bottle of shu uemura cleansing oil and a big bottle of cetaphil face wash.

  49. Kim says:

    I tend to finish everything but I think the last product was probably St. Ives Collagen and Elastin body wash. We go through lots of that. On a side note, do you know what I’ll definitely be finishing? The Givenchy Candide Garden quad that I love, love, love!!!! 🙂

  50. Amy Evans says:

    The latest skincare item I finished was Greenscape Organic Homemade Multigrain Skincare-the Lemon, Barley, & Tomato foaming facial wash. This product is made in England but you can purchase online. Highly recommend!

    I rarely finish beauty products save body lotions. The last product I remember finishing was my RareMinerals eye cream. I’m on my second tube but I’m thinking of trying something else when I’m done.

  54. i’ve finished palmolive thermal spa firming gel;a cheap way to get firmer:)

  55. Trude says:

    Hmm for body it was Trader Joe’s lavender body scrub, love that stuff! For the face, it was Boots’ microdermabrasion scrub. I guess I just love to scrub! 🙂

  56. Trisha says:

    I just finished the Z Mei Replenishing Daily Moisturizer. It was good timing, since that stuff is a little too thick for summer months anyway.

    Now, only if it could actually get warm…

  57. Megan says:

    Oh my goodness I cut all my tubes of lotion too, I have been doing that forever! Haha. I got the idea from my grandma. and the last lotion I finished was one from bath and body works, can’t remember which scent.

  58. JenJ says:

    Bobbi Brown eye cream

  59. Maria says:

    Lancome Collaser Eye Serum. I open the pump and scrape the inside out. I wish it came in a tube so I could cut it open! Good idea!!!

  60. Coral says:

    There was a Johnson’s Hydrating Moisture lotion I finished. I was so proud of myself. I get antsy when I know products are finishing and can’t wait to try new ones. And now I’m finishing off a Garnier facial moisturizer. But that one I cheated a bit, I tried a new product before finishing. But I’m determined not to just throw it out.

  61. Sarah says:

    The Body Shop Body Butter in Mango. I should have gotten the big one because it’s a limited edition. OBSESSED!

  62. Ariel says:

    The last thing I finished was a Neutrogena face wash. That Pacific body butter looks divine. Love lemons, and the packaging too!

    The H2O Hand & Nail Cream in my purse gets squeezed and prodded daily. I’ll only give up if I can no longer see product in there! I also just gave up on a B&BW Summer Vanillas Berry Vanilla body lotion.

    Victoria’s Secret Body Butter in Love Spell. Love the fomula, hate the scent. I’m getting Pure Seduction next. Yum!

  65. kris says:

    Illamasqua liquid foundation! I’m in love with this line and the quality of their foundation! Perfect for someone who wants a fuller coverage and beautiful finish 🙂 love it!

  66. meibaola says:

    The Body Shop Moringa Milk Body Lotion, and I debated for a while whether I should cut the bottle open or not… (eventually I decided not to, because I want to wash it and reuse it for homemade cosmetic experiments, and anyway the lotion is liquid and there is hardly any left inside). Goodbye Moringa Milk! You smelled so good! :'( I won’t repurchase though: as soon as I finished it I darted off to get myself the L’Erbolario Méharées Body Cream ^_^ Yes, I am a product w***e…

  67. Lizzy says:

    Origins’ Brighter by Nature Serum. It comes in a little bottle with pump and soon as I couldn’t pump anything out, I’d open the pump part and just use my finger to scoop out the lotion. As much as I love this product, I couldn’t wait to try other Origins products.. so soon as I ran out of it I grabbed the Modern Fusion Serum and it’s going great so far!

  68. Antsiekat says:

    Diorshow Extase Mascara, I tried other mascaras after but none were as good so I had to reinvest in a new one 🙂

  69. clean start face wash.

    The Body Shop chamomile eye makeup remover. As for makeup, I’m on my third compact of Neutrogena Mineral Sheers powder foundation SPF 20. It’s the only foundation I’ve ever finished.

  71. Kathleen says:

    I am about to grab the scissors and cut into the tube of my Dermalogica’s Skin Smoothing Cream to get the last bit of moisturizer out of it.
