May Empties Post! Products I’ve used up!

29 May

I didn’t have enough products for April to do a full post, so I waited an extra month to do this update.  Here are the products I’ve used up and quick thoughts about them.

Shaving cream – a major staple.  It really does make for a better shave.  W both like Skintimate because it is inexpensive.  We blogged about it here.

Another staple – eye brow pencil! Maybelline Define  A Brow pencil.  Easy to use and decent staying power.  To boost length of wear, top with Ben Nye Final Seal.  You’re welcome!

I’ve already repurchased this.  L’oreal Shocking Extensions Mascara. Good stuff.

I liked this, buy it is pricier from Elizabeth Mott.

My current favorite cleanser right now, Clearasil Refreshing Superfruit Wash.

On to…dry shampoo!!!!

Like Suave, will purchase again.

This was okay, I’m not sure I will repurchase again.

Some samples I’ve used up.

I kind of liked this lotion, I actually really liked the scent. Sort of smelled like pancakes. HAHA But I guess if you’re not down with smelling like food, this isn’t your thing.

Joan Voss – a pretty spring scent.   I am undecided about this.

Not my favorite Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab oil.

I think I forgot to include this in my March Empties which had my huge Korean Stash.

This smelled great, buy faded in 5 minutes on me.  Sorry Harvey Prince Cherrie Blossom! 😦

Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion – another staple in my collection.  I received a sample of a few formulas with my Naked 3.

Review – Suave Keratin Infusion Dry Shampoo

3 Apr

I think I’ve becomes sort of a dry shampoo fanatic.  Less frequent shampooing has made my hair a lot less dry.  🙂

Right now, I’m using Suave Keratin Infusion Dry Shampoo.

wpid-20140311_074218.jpg

I don’t mean to bounce around the brands so much with the dry shampoos, but for some stupid reason the stores in my area are allergic to keeping their supplies stocked and consistent.  CVS, I’m looking at you!

I actually wanted to try the Moroccan Infusion version of this, but oh well.

I still like Garnier Fructis because of the scent.  SO yum!!!

I do think this is a bit more conditioning?  Moisturizing?  A dry shampoo moisturizing…is that an oxy moron???

However, I do think it lacks a bit in the oil absorbing abilities at the scalp level.  I find that I need to use more of the product.

The smell is nice, not overpowering and it fades quickly.

I still want to try the Moroccan Infusion version because I am addicted to that body lotion line…and if the dry shampoo smells anything like the lotion, I will be way happy.

What’s your favorite dry shampoo?

What I’m into – Suave Moroccan Infusion Lotion

21 Jan

I saw tweets about  Suave Moroccan Infusion Lotion and was intrigued.  The blogger who tried it, fell in love.  As a result, I needed it.

My Review – This smells AMAZING.  I can’t put my finger on the scent, but it smells what I imagine an Arabian Princess from a fairy tale smells like.

It moisturizes very well and makes you skin very soft.

The consistency is a bit more runny/watery than the Vaseline lotion I recently gushed over.  However, this doesn’t impact it’s skin loving effects.

Repurchase?  HECK YES.

My skin loves this.

October 2013 Empties Post

16 Oct

Last time I did one of these was back in August, and I accumulated a ton of empties since then.  I probably waited too long to do this, but oh well…maybe I can try to do an Empties Post once a month.

Since there are so many, I’m not going to make a lot of comments about these products unless I wouldn’t repurchase for some reason or I really loved them.

See?  There is a  ton of stuff!!

These are both very similar to the Smashbox Face Primer.  I actually prefer the Sephora brand to the Hourglass.  Hourglass is white and blends, Sephora is clear.

The E.L.F. setting spray is a staple in my collection.

2013-10-15 00.23.53

I would not repurchase this liquid eyeliner.  It didn’t stay on me AT ALL.  I looked like I cried…a lot.

2013-10-15 00.24.33

I would not repurchase this Boots Expert Instant Matte.  I thought it may have been a good dupe for Clinique’s T-Zone which was discontinued (TRAGIC).  It fell VERY SHORT of my expectations.

One of my fave mascaras.  OF COURSE I will repurchase this 🙂

I’m so in love with these glosses.

2013-10-15 00.32.41

Our V-Primer 🙂

The best blotting paper you can get for a $1.00 USD.

If you have any questions about any of these, let me know and I will be happy to share my humble opinion 🙂

New Fave and Dupe: Suave Naturals Body Wash! Bath and Body Works Dupe!

17 Sep

I’m so crazy about this scent right now!!  It’s from the Suave Naturals line.  This retails for under $4.00 USD.

The scent reminds me of the Sweet Pea from Bath and Body Works.  I only used the BBW lotion, not the wash so I can’t compare its staying power.  However, the scents are very similar out of the bottle.  Bath and Body Works Sweet Pea Shower Gel is $11.00 USD.

It smells so fresh and summery!  It will probably be my last summer scent I use for the Season. Sort of sad because I love summer so much, but it’s also fun to try new products.

Why I like it:

1) fragrance is so nice

2) it lathers really well

3) it’s very inexpensive

4) it can be used for shaving

Have you used any Suave bath products?  What did you think?
