Collective Beauty Empties
Hellloooo there! Look who's back to her regular posts?! You may have seen my slightly depressing post (All work and no play) but rest assured I'm to my regular self! I took a day off this week to do what I want and have some ME time. Super happy I am!
I love beauty empties' blog posts and videos, its so fun to see what other people love and loathe. I've been meaning to do this post for a VERY VERY long time! Is it just me or is it completely satisfying to finish a product up?!? This is a collective beauty empties post, I did not finish these products all yesterday so don't be alarmed! For each product I have give a small description and my thoughts on repurchasing. I hope this is helpful, enjoy!
Frederic Fekkai Glossing Shampoo & Conditioner | I mentioned this amazing shampoo in this post here and was actually completely bummed out when all the product was finished because this duo did wonders for my hair! No frizz, just shine, shine, shine! The only problem is the price! Approximately $25 per bottle! Not on my repurchase list for now!
Softsoap Black Orchid & Velvet Hibiscus Moisturizing Body Wash | The scent is amazing and so is the formula! It moisturises well and just a little goes a long way! The packaging is nothing special but the amount of product you get for the price ($5-6) is quite good. Would I repurchase this? Definitely!
Batiste Boho Dry Shampoo | LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! this product! It works wonders! I am currently using Tressemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo (which I reviewed here) but it doesn't do anything for my hair. Batiste on the other hand is just amazing! My second day hair looked as if it had been freshly washed, which is what a good dry shampoo should do! I will definitely repurchase this product as soon as I've emptied out my current one!
Dabur Gulabari Moisturising Lotion | I generally like Dabur products and I decided to give this one a try... bad idea! The product is way too thin in consistency for my liking and I got tired of the rose scent very quickly. Nothing special about this product and I will not be repurchasing!
Himalaya Herbals Oil Balancing Face Wash | I originally bought this while in India, (since we don't/hardly get Himalaya products here in Canada) and I looooove it! It leaves your skin feeling oh-so fresh and very clean! I'd def repurchase this if I could find here close to home, otherwise I'll stock up while in India next time!
St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Scrub | You may remember that I purchased this back in this post here, after my bestie raved about it - and for good reason! I LOVE this product! The scent is just so delicious and fresh! It exfoliates remarkably and I wish they had this product for body as well! This is on my repurchase list for sure.
Olay Total Effects Face Wash | Nothing special about this product. It's great for those who are looking for a plain and simple everyday face wash. I did quite like the richness of the cream and it was quite moisturizing. I wasn't a fan of the scent (although it is unscented), it has this weird soap smell to it. I wouldn't run out and repurchase this in a jiffy, rather I am looking to try something else instead.
Simple Refreshing Facial Wash Gel | I reviewed this product here and wasn't a huge fan... The scent bothered me a little and there was nothing remotely "refreshing" about it, so that's a little disappointing. Maybe its a little too simple for my taste! Definitely NOT repurchasing.
Body Shop Shea Body Butter | I'm a huge Body Shop fan! I love all of the products they have; which always smell delicious and do wonders for your skin. This Body Butter did just that! It nourished my dry and sensitive skin back to health and made me a happy bear! Definite repurchase!
St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub | No words for this scrub except for AMAZING! I uses this all over my body (in the shower) as an exfoliant and it's brilliant! I've repurchased this multiple times already and have been using this for years!
Victoria Secret Sweet Dream Body Butter | Like all Victoria Secret products the scent is too fruity, floral and fake for my liking. It sometimes gave me a headache! Although it was called a "butter" the consistency was too thick to be a butter and that didn't sit well with me. I would not repurchase this.
Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel Cream | I didn't like this cream when I first purchased it and thus I threw it in the bottom of my drawer for months before I picked up and fell in love again! It's great to put on a freshly washed face! Would I repurchase? This would be my fall-back product, but I'd love to try something new!
FRAGRANCE & MAKEUP:
Victoria Beckham Signature Fragrance | I'm a HUGE Victoria Beckham fragrance FANATIC and I LOVE this fragrance! I featured it on this post here. I would repurchase this in a heartbeat!
Avon Super Shock Mascara | This is hands down one of my favourite mascaras ever! The formula, and the brush really lengthened my lashes. Surprisingly, I prefer this to even my Benefit BadGal Mascara! I am looking to repurchase this soon!
CK One Fragrance | This is one popular fragrance! The scent is super strong and bold and the best part about it has to be that it's unisex! The only problem is that I've worn it so much that I now can't stand it anymore! You may have remembered that I featured it here. I will not be repurchasing!
E.L.F Waterproof Eyeliner Pen | The consistency of this eyeliner is superb! Not too thick and not to thin. The downside has to be that it is NOT waterproof as it claims - false advertising!! That hardly bothers me because I don't care for waterproof products. I have repurchased this multiple times already as I love it for everyday wear.
Adidas Moves Her Fragrance | You may have seen this featured here. I've gotten lot of compliments regarding this fragrance, but I feel as though it is more of a body spray then an actual perfume because of the lightness. I did enjoy this fragrance but I don't think I'll be repurchasing anytime soon!
*Happy sigh* I've emptied over 15 products the last couple of months and I'm sad to see some of my favourites go... atleast my recycling bin will be happy! Hahah! Hope you enjoyed this post!
