Running On Empty: August & September Empties!


Paul Mitchell Original The Conditioner: My favorite leave-in conditioner. I've been using it for as long as I can remember, and I'll always repurchase.

Joico K-Pax Clarifying Shampoo: I enjoyed Joico's K-Pax Moisture Intense Hydrator. So, when I was shopping for a clarifying shampoo, I was eager to try the one from Joico. I am so glad that I didn't purchase the 33.8 fl.oz size, because I absolutely dislike this shampoo! It did nothing to clarify, and actually, my hair looked and felt as if it had more buildup. I really need my mom to mail me my beloved Kenra clarify shampoo ASAP!


Mac Mineralize Volcanic Ash Exfoliator: a decent exfoliator. I have one more tube left, but after it's gone, I'm not sure if I'll repurchase.

St. Ives Invigorating Apricot Scrub: I love St.Ives apricot scrub exfoliators, and I'll always repurchase.

 Skintimate Moisturizing Shave Gel in Flirty Mango & Tropical Splash: love these shave gels! It was my first time trying Tropical Splash, and I loved the scent. Will repurchase.


MAC Plush Lash: Plush Lash in one of the few MAC mascaras that I like. I love the fanned-out results I get with the mascara, so I'll repurchase.

Helena Rubinstein Lash Queen Fatal Blacks Wp in Captivating Bronze: I adore this mascara, and I'll NEVER be without it!

Smashbox Lash DNA Mascara: I've fallen out of love with this mascara, and I won't be repurchasing.


Bioderma: I'm not a fan of using bioderma as a makeup remover, but I do like it for correcting any detail eye looks. Will solely repurchase for correcting purposes.


Colgate Maxfresh toothpaste: Only toothpaste I use on my choppers. I have a year supply :)


Bath & Body Works Wallflower Fragrance Bulb in Winter: I LOVE Winter! This scent is used year round, and I always stock up whenever it becomes available.

Honorable Mentions:


Stila Skincare Coming Clean Revitalizing Gel Cleanser: I got this as a sample from one of my online purchases. It wasn't a bad cleanser, but I'm not sure if I would purchase a full size.

Shu Uemura Skin Purifier High Performance Balancing Cleansing Oil Advanced Formula: love the entire Skin Purifier line, and wouldn't remove my makeup with anything else!


H20 Sea Results Eye Mender: the eye mender did nothing to mend or moisturize my eyes. Will not purchase a full size.


Living Proof Restore Recovery Regime: I didn't find this treatment did much for my hair. I may purchase the full size to give it another go.


Skin Food Aloe Vera Foaming Cleanser: the first time I used this cleanser, my skin had an adverse reaction. I got little red bumps around my forehead and cheeks. I continued to use the face wash, and the red bumps went away. In fear of another reaction, I wouldn't repurchase.


Make Up For Ever Sens'Eyes Waterproof Sensitive Eye Cleanser: didn't remove makeup very well, and wouldn't repurchase.


Kate Somerville Exfolikate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment: In the past, I've purchased the full size of this exfoliating treatment, and I do love how smooth it leaves my complexion. I'll repurchase in the future.


Somme Institute Eye: this eye cream did a big fat ZERO in the moisturizing/hydrating department. Would NOT purchase a full size.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye: this product was okay, not sure if I'll purchase the full size.

Specifics Ultimate Eye Cream: I most admit, I scoffed when I read the name of this product. "Ultimate"...really?! Talk about living up it's name. I LOVE this eye cream!!! I will be purchasing a full size, even if cost me an arm and a leg.


Blum Naturals Daily Cleansing Towelette: although I have normal/dry skin, I used it one night to remove my makeup. It worked well, but not enough to look into the brand.

Shu Uemura Skin Purifier High Performance Balancing Cleansing Oil Advanced Formula: liquid gold!

THREE Herbal Bath Soap AC: I don't use bar soaps, as I find them very drying on my skin. All I remember about this herbal soap is that it melted quickly. Wouldn't repurchase.

Have you tried any of these products? If so, let me know your thoughts.

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.
