Empties / August-September: Hair Products & Skin Care

I’ve been regularly hitting the pan, in other words, finishing up the products. In the last few months, I have finally completed quite a few. It feels rewarding to be able to finish. Finally! I’m glad I rarely throw out beauty items into the garbage, unless of course, it’s something that absolutely has to be thrown out. Take a look at the full list:

  • Dove Gentle Exfoliating Body Wash: 4/5 - skin feels smoother
  • Sexy Hair Curly Sexy Hair Shampoo: 4/5 - perfect for wavy hair
  • Philosophy Holiday Lights Aglow Shampoo and Body Wash: 3/5 - smells great, but somewhat drying and pricey, although, perfect for a bubble bath
  • Befine Skin Care line - provided by GlossyBox: 5/5 - excellent quality, natural, leaves skin glowing. I may purchase full size products, but it's hard to find, and their online assortment seems limited. 
  • Clarks Botanicals - from Glymm bag: 4/5 - a very good resurfacing moisturizer, but very expensive at full price
  • Herbaflor Organic RoseHip Oil: 4/5 - the oil is quickly absorbant, nourishing, prevents skin damage, and smoothes out wrinkles
  • Lancome Bienfait Multi-Vital Moisturizing Cream: 4/5 - affordable, high quality, non-greasy cream that  is perfect for daily use - with spf 30
  • Joico K-PAK Revitaluxe: 3/5 - it's OK, I didn't find it all that great.
  • Cyberderm Moisturizer Samples from Glymm: 4/5 These are very potent and creamy, and seem like a good investment in the future.
  • Got2B Got 2 Be 2 Sexy Voluptuous Volume Mousse: 3/5 Works well, but feels somewhat sticky
  • John Frieda SheerBlonde Lightening Conditioner: 5/5 This is my favourite conditioner. It leaves my hair feeling smooth and silky, and makes the blonde highlights much brighter. 
  • Naked Princess - Naked Shine Luscious Lip Gloss in Barely Nude - this was such a small sample from Glymm that I could barely notice a difference 
  • Rimmel Hide the Blemish Concealer in Ivory 001: 4/5, full Review coming soon
  • Principessa - Bacio Me Lip Balm: Click Here for Review
  • Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Conditioner: 4/5 Great product for the price
  • Macadamia Natural Oil Healing Oil Treatment: 5/5 Amazing!
  • Macadamia Healing Oil Spray: 4/5 Amazing! full reviews to come
  • Vitamine & Sea Clay Mask: 3/5 - felt like any other clay mask 
  • The Body Shop Natrulift Firming Day Cream with organic pomegranate: 3.5/5 Nothing special
  • Tom Ford Lavender Palm: 2/5 Smells like soap!
  • Atelier Cologne Trefle Pur: 4/5 Love it!
  • Olay Regenerist Moisturizer: 3/5 OK, but not great. Will not buy again.
  • Social Butterfly Hair Perfume: 3/5 Convenient to have in case of emergency hair day
  • CK One Eau De Toilette
  • Dove Damage Therapy Burst Conditioner
  • John Frieda Frizz Ease Sheet Solution Lightweight Frizz Control
  • Olive Oil Replenishing Conditioner
  • Sebastian Volupt Shampoo: 4.5/5 Love, love love it! This is perfect for my hair, and I don't have to wash it as often. 
  • Mai Couture Foundation Papier: 3/5 I like the idea, but it needs something more
  • Got2B Kinky Curling Mousse: 4/5 I love most products by Got2B. They are incredibly affordable and work very well. This one was no exception. 
  • Victoria's Secret Island Waters Coconut Water & Pineapple Moisturizing Cream: 3.5/5 The scent is too strong, and I may have developed allergies. 
  • Amir Argan Oil Moisturizing Conditioner: 2/5 Did absolutely nothing and it's quite pricey!
