OCTOBER EMPTIESOctober 27, 2015
Empties. A prettier word for trash. Yes friends, this is this month's trash. In a prettier, more formal way to put it. As I expressed in last month's rendition, I'm really trying my best at this whole use up and reduce trend that seems to be sweeping the nation. It seems like everyone is on a mission to simplify, and that is totally one "trend" I can go along with.
Aussie 3 Minute Miracle - These are deep conditioning masks, with a budget friendly price point ($3-$7). They come in three different formulas, Moist , Color , Strong and can be found most any retailer that sells similar products. (Pst, Walmart is the cheapest).
Would I buy it again? At the moment no. I have found coconut oil does the same if not better. These are certainly an excellent product though. Joshua loves them!
Curel Itch Defense Instant Soothing Moisturizing Spray - This was sent by Influenster and let's just say I'm happy I didn't waste my own money on it.
Would I buy it again? Fortunately I didn't buy it to begin with. Instead, I had to wipe down my cabinets, door and floor of the bathroom every time I used this, because it literally got everywhere. They also made the "neck" of the bottle very hard to hold and the can itself is extremely slippery. I used this to use it, and it lasted less than two weeks not using it every day. The moisturizing properties were about all it had going for it.
YS Eco Bee Farms Raw Honey - Believe it or not, this replaced all face wash and cleansers in my life. I've been working on a post, compiling my new skin care routine, but wanted to make sure I really knew all the ins and outs of the products.
Would I buy it again? Yes and I already have. Wash your face with raw honey friends, you will thank me!
Would I buy it again? Sadly. no. It smelled wonderful and felt extremely relaxing. However, my feet haven't stopped peeling from this stuff and it's been over 4 weeks. Keep in mind I sit at a desk 85% of my day. My feet aren't bad per say. With all foot soaks come peel-age, but I feel like I have a flesh eating bacteria. Ok, not really.... that was a little dramatic. I say skip this, unless your feet are already terrible.
Olay ProX Exfoliating Cleanser - This is the little travel size that came with my ProX cleansing brush I purchased back in June.
Would I buy it again? No. As much as I love my cleansing brush, this stuff that came with it was extremely underwhelming. I think Olay has a lot of great products, I just don't feel this is one of them.
Batiste Original Clean Dry Shampoo - I only wash my hair every other day. Sometimes, I can make it to three, but that's pushing it. Dry shampoo is a must in my cabinets.
Would I buy it again? Yes, and in a way, I already have. I purchased the Blush Floral & Flirty scent this time to try it out and so far I'm loving it as well.
Would I buy it again? Yes, totally one of the better drugstore mascaras. It's super wet and easily buildable. This is my top three from the drugstore!
