Empties & Mini Reviews May 2014: Skincare, Makeup, & Hair

My last "empties" post was back in March...So these are not empties from May alone. I have a mix of skincare and makeup and one hair item. 
Heres an overview, mostly face products.
1.) H2O plus 'Marine Toner". I went through two of these and almost finished up another. I only find this at Tj Maxx for $5.99. It feels like water- so gentle.

2.) Clean and Clear morning Burst face wash. I have gone through so many of these, the orange and blue bottle ones are my favorite. It does "wake me up" a bit and refresh my skin.

3.) The Body Shop Tea Tree Blemish Night Fade Lotion. Its pricey at $18 but I went through two of these. I really loved it but now I am trying something cheaper and mixing tea tree oil in.

4.) Tea Tree Oil. I buy this at my local grocery store for $9. Usually I mix it in lotion (like said above).

5.) The Body Shop Tea Tree Toner. It was nice, but kind of odd. It has an astringent like sand in it and u shook it up. Not repurchasing, I like the H2O + one better.

6.) Biore Ultra Pore Strips. Even if they are ultra- they are worse then the original, they only have an ultra (minty?) smell.

7.) Maybelline Eye makeup remover. Works well, no blurry vision and gets the eye makeup off.

8.) Garnier Anti-Humidity "Smoothing Milk". I really liked this, it made my hair silky. It did not tame flyaways or any staticy frizz.

9.) At the top is a mini Makeup Forever Fix and Fix. I used it as a setting spray for my face, and it left a satin finish. Not matte and not dewy.
10.) Elf Tone Correcting Powder. It was a white powder in different tones but it came off as translucent. It was a standard powder, nothing special.

11.) Revlon Colorstay "Oily/ Combo" formula. It stays all day, Ive been through 2 since March. I switched to the "dry/ normal" one now. It blends better and doesn't oxidise, this lasts longer though.

12.) Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer in "light". I did enjoy this, but not ultimate coverage, lasts pretty well. Didn't crease, but it did fade.

13.) L'oreal True Match Concealer. Very light, yellow toned. "Dry" formula so best for covering up blemishes, but it can highlight them.

14.) Neutrogena Skin Clearing Concealer. For covering a blemish I want coverage, this blended away to nothing. It was far too liquidy.
15.) Nivea Kiss of shine. It actually hydrated my lips, and left a juicy glossy shine.

16.) e.l.f Lip Exfoliator. Great for the price, not the best. Now I am using the Lush Lip Scrub and it is Divine.
