Product Empties #23


Oh, don’t mind me, just using up a ton more products over here! I still seem to be breezing through products and it feels great! Surprisingly, I have used up a ton of haircare this round, which is a change from the 1 or 2 hair products I usually finish at a time.

Anyways, here is what I have recently used up:


Dove Refresh + Care Invigorating Dry Shampoo

Pros: Smells amazing, inexpensive, no white residue, absorbs excess oil

Cons: Don’t find it as effective as other dry shampoos

Repurchase? Yes.

Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo

Pros: Love the fresh, invigorating crimson orange and mint scent of this, the citrus and mint feels stimulating, super inexpensive, no white residue, absorbs excess oil, free of parabens and colourants

Cons: Doesn’t give my hair much volume like it suggests

Repurchase? Already have.

Live Clean Biotin Extra Body Shampoo*

Pros: Really felt like this helped to thicken my hair and give it more volume, strengthened my hair, smells great, lathers up well, affordable, eco-friendly, free of any harsh ingredients, vegan, cruelty-free

Cons: Nothing!

Repurchase? 100%! This is my new favourite shampoo in the Live Clean range

IMG_9086Live Clean Biotin Extra Body Conditioner*

Pros: Like the shampoo, my hair felt thicker, stronger and more voluminous using this, hair felt soft, smells great, affordable, eco-friendly, free of any harsh ingredients, vegan, cruelty-free

Cons: Wish the Live Clean conditioners had a thicker consistency

Repurchase? 100% yes!

Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Repair & Protect Deep Conditioner

Pros: Really works to deep condition the hair leaving it softer and smoother, really good for dry, damaged hair, smells delicious, super affordable

Cons: I really can’t think of anything

Repurchase? Yes, this is such a good deep conditioner—even my boyfriend loves it!

TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Hair Spray

Pros: Smells good, affordable, combats frizz, adds shine, sprays well

Cons: Can sometimes feel sticky and crispy, doesn’t hold as well as other hairsprays

Repurchase? No. However, I do have another bottle of this for some reason (I think my sister had bought it), so I will use that one up.


Celkin Vitamin Make-up Remover Cleansing Wipes

Pros: Super affordable, easily removes makeup, gentle, non-irritating, hydrating, wipes are really moist, cruelty-free

Cons: Contains parabens

Repurchase? Yes.

The Body Shop Vanilla Chai Hand Cream

Pros: Love the sweet, spicy scent, absorbs quickly into the skin, non-greasy, non-irritating, hydrating, good for during the day

Cons: Seasonal scent (that is now back for the holidays!)

Repurchase? Yes.

IMG_9091Bath & Body

Live Clean Coconut Milk Moisturizing Body Wash*

Pros: Leaves skin feeling soft, moisturized and clean, gentle on the skin, lathers up really well, a little goes a long way, smells great, affordable, get a ton of product for the price (500 mL), eco-friendly, free of any harsh ingredients, vegan, cruelty-free

Cons: There really aren’t any!

Repurchase? Yes, but not right away, as I have a ton of body washes to get through.

Skintimate Skin Therapy Moisturizing Sensitive Skin Shave Gel

Pros: Aloe vera and vitamin E really work to help reduce skin irritation caused by shaving, leaves the skin feeling super soft, moisturized and smooth, allows you to get a close shave and for the razor to easily glide over the skin, lathers up really well, inexpensive

Cons: This product is actually still half full, but the product won’t come out and the pressure is causing it to leak from the bottom (I stored this in a drawer on its side, which may have been why it stopped working), also, it didn’t really protect against nicks and cuts

Repurchase? Yes, but next time I won’t store it on its side.


Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer

Pros: Offers full coverage, but is feels incredibly lightweight on the skin, easily conceals dark circles and imperfections, love the size of the applicator—picks up the perfect amount of product, does not crease or fade, blends perfectly, paraben-free, cruelty-free

Cons: Expensive

Repurchase? Yes, this is an amazing concealer, but because it is pricey, I won’t repurchase it right away.


The Body Shop Vanilla Eau de Toilette

Pros: Love that this is straight up vanilla and has no other scents mixed with it, affordable (and often on special), easy to travel with, sprays evenly

Cons: Wish the scent lasted longer, also wish this came in a larger size

Repurchase? Yes.
