Blogtober Day 8: An Abundance of Empties Part 1

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

It’s been forever and a day since I’ve posted an empties here. However, I have been collecting them for some time. I’m sure there are a few that escaped but I figured I’d share what I’ve accumulated. These are empties from the Spring. I took pictures to share back in June and never did post it. I figured better late then never. Right?

With that being said, let’s get on to my trash!!

Emptiesoct151

The Product:
Olay Sensitive Unscented Body Wash
Product Size: 50 ml (1.7 fl oz)

About the Product:
This product claims to be “As gentle to skin as water” and gives simple instructions such as “Squeeze a small amount of product onto wet puff. Lather and rinse.” It claims to be unscented but it had a smell to it that I didn’t like. Thankfully I got this as a sample to buy so I didn’t have to dish out any money for it.

Will I Repurchase?:
Definitely not! I prefer my body washes to have a great scent!

*~*~*~*~*

The Product:
Olay 2-in-1 Daily Facial Cloth
Product Size: Sample Size – 1 cloth

About the Product:
This product is for combination/oily skin. An essential cleansing formula with pro-vitamin B5, beta-hydroxy and witch hazel, it claims to tone skin and break up dirt and make-up (even mascara)

Directions:
1. Wet with water
2. Rub to lather
3. Cleanse using smooth side for gentle cleansing (including the eye area) and the beaded side for exfoliation
4. Rinse
5. Throw away (do not flush)

I didn’t mind this product and would probably purchase it for travel purposes only. I don’t normally use cleansing clothes at home.

Will I Repurchase?
Not anytime in the near future.

*~*~*~*~*

The Product:
Neat & Easy
Deep Cleansing Nose Strips
Product Size: 3 Packages of 1 Strip Each

About the Product:
This product claims to remove blackheads, oil and dirt. It also helps to diminish the appearance of large pores

Directions:
1.Wash your face thoroughly making sure to remove any cream, lotion or make-up. Moisten your nose with warm water, as strip won’t stick if nose is dry.
2. Dry your hands, open the packet and peel the strip off the plastic liner.
3. Apply the shiny side to moistened nose and press down to ensure good contact with skin.
4. Let the strip dry for 10-15 minutes until it feels stiff.
5. Once the strip is dry, slowly peel off the strip starting at the edges and pulling towards the center. Rinse off any residue with water.

These strips actually worked. I was a little skeptical at first because I bought them at Dollarama.

Will I Repurchase?
Not at the moment but it is a possibility for the future!

The Product:

Emptiesoct155

The Product:
Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly, Tousling Mousse
Product Size: 
192 g

About the Product:
Violet Splash Fragrance
Shake it loose with mousse
I’ll whip up loose waves and help kiss frizz goodbye with my lightweight control
I feel like foam but I control like a gel, so you can create a messy, tousled look that’s so soft, one touch isn’t enough
Use Me: Shake me up, flip me over, foam me out, tousle me through wet hair, then scrunch, twirl, mess it up, dry on low heat, touch it and love it immediately.

This is my go-to hair styling product. I have tried various other products and nothing works as well in my hair as this product! It helps to cut down on the frizz and gives the natural curl in my hair a more definite shape!

Will I Repurchase?
Definitely! Already have two back ups!!!

*~*~*~*~*

The Product:
Aussie Hair Insurance
Product Size: 
236 ml (8 FL OZ)

About the Product:
I started using this product at the early part of the Summer. I was looking for something to act as a leave-in conditioner and kept hearing about Aussie’s Three Minute Miracle and how everyone loved it. Unfortunately I am unable to find this product in Canada but did come across the Hair Insurance while looking for it. This works great in my hair to not only help with repair but as a detangler as well. It’s just a great added bonus that this product smells amazing (with a coconut inspired scent)

Will I Repurchase?
Definitely! Already have a backup!

*~*~*~*~*

The Product:
Herbal Essences Totally Twisted Curl Boosting Mousse.
Product Size: 192 g

About the Product:
Tropical Mystique Fragrances
Be a bouncing babe. I’ll keep humidity out of your hair and give curls and waves a lust boost.
The twist? I make your hair shiny and springy with my weightless formula.

Use Me: shake me up, flip me over, foam me out, work me through wet hair, use a “finger-style” diffuser and low dryer heat look, but don’t touch, touching your hair creates frizz.

This mousse is alright but I find that it leaves my hair feeling crunchy at times. I much prefer the Tousle Me Softly mousse!

Will I Repurchase?
Possibly, especially if I cannot get my favorite type!

*~*~*~*~*

Fixer-Upper
Bye-Bye Breakage strengthening system works wonders to help protect the ends that  made you broken hearted.

Herbal Essences is one of my go-to brands. It just works so well with my hair!

Products I am not finished but throwing away:
Emptiesoct156

The Product:
Get Creamed Body
Naked Decadence naturally-based Premium Salon Hair Wash
Product Size: 60 ml (2 oz)

This product claims to:

Stop washing your hair with detergent! This premium salon-quality botanical shampoo is specially designed to cleanse the hair gently with natural ingredients and without harsh chemicals.

Formulated from an organic infusion of lavender water with natural botanticals, organic ginseng and hair-strengthening vitamins, Naked Decadence Hair Wash cleans without stripping natural moisture to leave hair shiny, strong, and healthy. Good for all hair types, safe for use on colored hair.

For gorgeous hair: Apply a small amount to wet hair and massage in. Rinse well and repeat if necessary.

I really did not like this product. It had a chemically smell to it and I just couldn’t use it on my hair after the first try. I use most of it to clean my bath tub (I kid you not) before finally throwing it out. I didn’t like the smell lingering in my bathroom after its use either.

Will I Repurchase?
This product came to be through a sample subscription. I definitely will not be purchasing this product, ever!


Well that’s my empties for today! Stay tuned for part two tomorrow when we’ll be looking at the empties I accumulated during the Summer months!
