Nice empties @Samtian!! When I tried the Kiehl's Mist, it was a "No Go" for me too. I didn't like that it was supposed to be a hydrating mist, but it still contained denatured alcohol.

-Christophe Robin Purifying Shampoo
-Neutrogena Deep Clean Purifying Sheet Mask
-Haruharu Wonder Maqui Berry Mask
These are nice and wouldn't mind using them again if I found a great deal but wouldn't run to the store to restock.
I had high hopes for the Creme Shop wipes, because they are alcohol-free and vegan, but I wasn't really impressed. I needed several wipes to take all of my makeup off and even then I always had to go back with another makeup remover. The packaging was also a major let down. The hard plastic opening part was poorly glued onto the packaging and fell off which eventually dried all my wipes.
Wasn't a fan of the B&B soap scent. There was too much clove in it for me. I usually am a sucker for these holiday spices type of scent, but this was too much.
Same happened for the Being by Sanctuary Spa bath bomb, I thought it would smell delicious, but the macadamia overpowered the caramel scent.
The Shiseido Full Lash Mascara was a fail. It is totally waterproof, but it has not volumizing or lenghtening effect. It made my lash point straight forward. Plus waterproof is just so hard to remove.
I work in a hospital and wash my hand an incredible amount of times per day, especially in these crazy times. The Sephora Aloe Vera Hand Mask was my rescue. The mask held tightly on my hands, the serum was thick enough to deeply moisturize, but too much so it dried quickly. I wish Sephora would carry this one all year long, because I need backups 😩.
The Sephora Pumpkin face mask smells incredible and does a great job at moisturizing. It doesn't smell like pumpkin though in my opinion. It has a sweet smell, not too intense.
Some of my new favorites are the Grow Gorgeous Back Into The Roots Scalp Mask (quick detox mask with a strong peppermint scent) and the Living Proof Night Cap Overnight Perfector (made my hair shine and my curls look beautiful the next morning).
The other items were lovely and would love to purchase again in full sizes.
The Being by Sanctuary Spa bath bombs in Chili Mango and Tonka Beans, Cloudberry and Lychee were nice. Smell isn't too overpowering or irritating and forms a light foam in the water. I bought these at Marshall's btw.
Origins Mega Mushroom Relief and Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion was nice, I feel like it really soothed my sensitive skin. I had less redness and it gave an extra hydration boost to my skin.
The Aveeno Hand Mask let me down big time. The little stickers to made the mask stay in place weren't sticky enough. The serum was THICK, like I was putting my hands in jell-o or pudding. It took a long time to absorb. In the end my hands were hydrated but didn't perform as well as the Sephora Aloe Vera Mask.
The Sand & Fog candle in 'Passion Tea' had a very light scent. I love this brand and there other candles but I was expecting something better.
The Cirem HCR 3-in-1 Sheet Mask was awful I forgot to put it aside in the photo. I got this from a subscription box and I'm glad it was my last one. This is the type of mask that has pieces you can attach behind your ears and around your jaw. The eye holes were so tiny I had serum on my lids and in my eyelashes. The serum wouldn't absorb into my skin like it was sitting on top of it. I felt the residue all night and was happy to wash off my face the next morning.
