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.

  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:)
