Running on Empty: August Empties!

Sorry for being a few days late :)

Redken Smooth Down Conditioner: is one of my all-time favorite conditioners. I was on the Redken website and saw it has been discontinued and replaced with Smooth Lock. Based on the reviews I read from the website, many people are NOT happy with the change. I've yet to try Smooth Lock, but I'm starting to feel a little panicked...if it doesn't workout, I'm going to have a major hair crisis!

Tsubaki Head Spa Conditioner: I rotate between this and the Damage Care line conditioner; it leaves my curls looking smooth and defined.

 N4 High Performance Hair Care: This was a gift from the amazing Ari from a passionate obsession. I really liked this reconstructive masque and I'll definitely repurchase.

Tsubaki Daage Care Treatment: This is a great conditioning treatment! I use it once a week, and my hair loves me for it! Always repurchase.

L'Occitane Sorbet Verbena Exfoliating Shower Gel: I really enjoyed how smooth and refreshed my skin felt after using this shower gel. But, unfortunately, it's limited edition and I'm almost done with my second tube :(

L'Occitane Honey & Lemon Delightful Cream: I enjoyed this body cream, but it too has been discontinued.

L'occitane Olive Tree Organic Radiance Cleansing Foam: Another discontinued product, and I understand why. I love using foaming cleansers during Summer, but this cleanser was torture to use. It did a good job at cleansing, but I noticed no "radiance", and the scent was awful, god awful!! This is the first product from L'Occitane that I've disliked.

MAC Fix+: Yup, gone through another bottle...what can I say? It's been hot :P

Dry Idea: Be kind to those around you, deodorize :)

Sebastian Laminates Drops: It was a tragic day for hair when this line was discontinued. I LOVED the Laminates line. I stocked up on these babies, but I'm down to my last three bottle.

Sebastian Laminates Gel: This is my FAVORITE product for curly hair! Just like the Laminate Drops, I stocked up on cases of this hair gel. I purchased any size tube I could get my hands on.

Chanel Precision Sublimage Eye: This is a good eye cream, but I'm not sure I'd repurchase.

MAC Select Moisturecover: This is a great under-eye concealer, and I will always repurchase.

Chanel Precision Sublimage: A good face cream, but just like the Sublimage eye cream, I'm not sure I'd repurchase.

Colgate Maxfresh: Don't offend anyone with bad breath! My favorite toothpaste :D

Delon Premium Cotton Rounds: Got these in a pack of four from Costco...yes, we have Costco here :)

Honorable mentions: I have a bag full of samples, so my goal is to use everything up.

Dior Hydra Life Pro-Youth Sorbet Eye Creme: I was able to get five days used from this packet. After five days, it didn't do much to moisturize, and I found it to be too heavily perfumed. I can never understand the purpose of adding fragrance to an eye creme? I probably won't buy it in the full size.

Shu Uemura Whitefficient Clear Brightening Gentle Cleansing Oil: I recently purchased some items from Shu and the SA gave me a bunch of these sample cleansing oils. I got two uses out of this packet. I'd purchase a full size of this oil cleanser.

Billy Jealousy Liquidsand: Billy Jealousy is a men's skin care line, but I'm an equal opportunist, so I gave this exfoliator a try. I got two uses, and I really liked it. I would purchase a full size, and this time, I'd share it with Aki...Maybe :P

Bliss Triple Oxygen +C Energizing Cream: This cream left my skin feeling soft and moisturized, but I can't remember much else. I may purchase a full size

Korres Wild Rose 24-Hour Moisturizing & Brightening Cream SPF6/ For normal to dry skin: I like the way this moisturizer felt on the skin, but I don't think I'd purchase a full size in the near future.

What did you use up in the month of August?

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.


  1. 1st: I am so happy you liked the hair mask!!!

    2nd: I can't believe you have a Costco there!!!

    1. I loved the hair mask!! Thank you!!!!

      And we do have Costco here, but they're all pretty far.

  2. I love L'occitane's Verbene range especially the leaf-shaped soap with the little rough bits in it for exfoliation. It smells so deliciously fresh:)

  5. Ce sac cartable Michael Kors est si universel qu'il pourrait plaire à tout le monde. Dans cet article, je vais essayer de passer en revue les caractéristiques principales et les éléments qui distinguent ce sac à main des autres.

    L’extérieur de ce fourre-tout Michael Kors est un cuir métallisé de laiton froncé et froncé. Si vous connaissez les sacs à main Michael Kors, vous savez que ce cuir sera doux et souple. Les deux grandes poignées supérieures sont attachées au sac avec quelques centimètres de chaînes dorées, puis les moitiés supérieures des bretelles présentent le même cuir couleur laiton.

    La diversité des couleurs et la taille utilisable de ce sac le rendent parfait pour un usage quotidien. Les poches intérieures ne manquent pas pour aider à garder les choses en ordre. Il y a des endroits parfaits pour votre téléphone ou votre Blackberry. Le zip top empêche les malfaiteurs de saisir votre sac dans un bar et aide également à contenir tout ce qui se trouve à l'intérieur lorsque vous courez pour créer ce train.
