September Empties

1 Comment

What better way to spend a Sunday than with an empties post, eh? If you are unfamiliar with posts such as this, basically it is a review of the products that you have used up recently. So, grab your cups of coffee people and pap-a-squat!


Organix Morrocan Oil Shampoo: I talked about how much I loved the coconut milk one of these, but that was a long time ago…okay, it was just a month, but my opinion has changed. First, the whole Organix brand of shampoos don’t actually get your hair clean. With loads of hairspray jammed into my hair everyday, my head of hair is pretty much the idea test for these shampoos. Unfortunately, while using these shampoos, I got out of the shower to find a head full of flakes from broken down hairspray that resemble…well, dandruff. They also made my scalp soooo itchy. I hope that clears some ground up. I promise the rest of the products are more positive.

C.O. Bigelow Mentha Body Lotion: I really like the idea of this cream (and so will any lover of icy hot like me), but this does nothing to moisturize my skin.

Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray: I really loved this. It really did keep my makeup all. day. long. My makeup was less shiny when 3 o’clock came around and everything was a bit less…smeary. I will definitely be repurchasing this again in the future, but for now, I’m going to try out some other makeup sprays.


Kate Somerville ExfoliKate: I actually liked this, but I know that there are definitely some scrubs with the same quality that are just as good.

Bobbi Brown Everything Mascara: I really (repeat: really) liked this mascara, but I feel like paying a lot for mascara is kind of a waste. There are so many good drugstore mascaras, I just don’t really see the point. Also, this one isn’t waterproof and, judging from the back of my leotard during ballet class today, I need waterproof.

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment: I have this product in the Honey tint, but I received this as part of my birthday gift from Sephora and oh boy, do I like it! It is the perfect night time treatment (and morning too) that leaves my lips so soft and smooth. I’m so sad to see this go, but I really want to buy the full size, but I have another product like this that I want to try first.

  1. Wait a minute. C.O. Bigelow makes a Mentha Body lotion?! I use the soap, but have never seen a lotion. They’ve been holding out on me!!
