Hello, my Pretties!
Just like I skipped December's favorites post, I also missed my December empties post. So, here is my collective post for my December/January empties.
|December 2011 and January 2012 empties.|
|Suave Naturals Tropical Coconut Conditioner|
Infused with coconut extract and vitamin E, this is used to the last drop because of it's scent. It's lovely. I adore coconut scented bath products, candles, anything! It did do a good job in detangling my hair. Other than that, it was just meh. No wow factors. It claims 2x more moisture on the bottle but I didn't notice. Probably not a repurchase.
|L.A. Looks Mega X-Treme Hold Gel|
Since I do wear my hair up a lot, in buns or braids, I need something to slick back my frizzy atmosphere of hair I have going on on my head. This is a 'sport' edition gel because my sweet-tart picked it out since he uses it too. It is a bit sticky for my liking but it gets the job done. This is the sweet-tart's go to gel so I'm sure it will be a repurchase.
|Johnson's Baby Lotion|
I love the smell of babies! Who doesn't? With two young children in the house, I always try to have this on hand. I use it on my kids and I use it on myself. I love the smell of it and it leaves my skin nice and soft. It's clinically proven to be mild so I even use this on my face too before I apply my foundation and face full of makeup. It doesn't clog my pores and doesn't leave me greasy at all. Repurchase!
|Garnier Fructis Leave-In Conditioning Cream|
Sleek & Shine
This is geared towards frizzy, dry or unmanageable hair. Frizzy? Check! Dry? Check! Unmanageable? Ckeck! I have hair that is all of the above. I love this leave-in treatment. It's rich and thick and it smells good too. It works. It leaves my hair much more softer and less frizzy. My hair needs a lot of help and this helps so this is a repurchase too.
|Dove Ultimate Anti-Perspirant Deodorant|
in Nectarine & White Ginger Scent
I am usually a Secret or Suave anti-perspirant deodorant girl but this one was on sale at the time of purchase and it came with a mini body spray in the matching scent. I finished the deodorant but still have some of the body spray left. I loved the scent of this one. It's smells fruity and clean and like summer. The feeling of freshness lasts all day. I do want to try the other scents available in this deodorant. It worked very well for me. Repurchase.
|Avon Moisture Effective Eye Makeup|
I always have this on hand. I am actually down to my last bottle right now. I have been using this eye makeup remover for years now and it gets the job done. But now I want something different. I've tried Mary Kay, Clinique,and Rimmel eye makeup removers and now this one is no longer my favorite. I don't think I will repurchase this anytime soon. I'm still exploring the world of makeup removers and I am having fun trying out new ones!
|Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion|
Urban Decay Skyscraper Multi-Benefit Mascara
Dior Diorshow Mascara
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion: This is my first tube of UDPP and I really did like it. It goes on well. A little goes a long way. The lasting power is great. It took me a long time to finish this. I usually use my E.L.F. Eyelid Primer which I love to but for the price difference, I will probably stick to my E.L.F. But if I have the money to spend, UDPP is a must have.
Urban Decay Skyscraper Multi-Benefit Mascara: I love Urban Decay and I love mascara but this one was not a pure love. I did like the way this mascara separated my lashes but it seemed too dry for me. I wanted it to coat my lashes more and make them truly black and stand out. It didn't. I would apply another mascara and top off with this one to separate my lashes and that's about it. Not going to be a repurchase. ♥This was a gift given to me by a fellow blogger friend.
Dior Diorshow Mascara: Love it! This is a love! It was a rich black, thickened up my lashes greatly, and added length too. Everything I want in a mascara. I have two complaints. 1-the scent. I didn't care for the overly floral scent it had but after applying it, it was undetectable. 2-price. This is high end mascara. No wonder it works so well! And just for the price alone, $24.50 at Sephora, this will not be a repurchase. Aw. ♥This was a gift given to my by a fellow blogger friend.
And that's all for now, folks! Lots of empties these past two months. Some I plan on repurchasing, others not. I hope my mini reviews on each item helps you in deciding whether or not you'd like to try any of these products.
Luv & Luk,
