March 2013 Empties

March was an uneventful month for empties.  I just finished up a few items and didn’t touch many samples and minis.  It was just two full size items and two deluxe minis.

March 2014 Empties

  • The Body Shop’s Vitamin E Moisture Cream – This product says cream, but its consistency is more of a lotion.  In fact it reminds me A LOT of baby lotion, from the smell to the color to the scent.  I didn’t really care for this too much and I don’t think it did much for my skin either.
  • Josie Maran Argan Oil – This was my first facial oil.  I was very surprised that it didn’t make me feel like a total grease ball.  I guess its the word oil.  I use cleansing oils for removing makeup so I shouldn’t have underestimated the power of oils!
  • Dr Brandt Pores No More Cleanser – Be careful using this item!!  My eyes sting and burns like crazy whenever I accidentally get some into my eyes.  I’m not sure if I noticed any improvements in my pores however..  I might give this another try in the future and try to use this cleanser exclusively to see if there is any visible improvement.
  • Novex Brazilian Keratin Conditioner – I received this item in one of my Glossyboxes.  The conditioner is intended to be applied into dry hair which was not what I am usually used to for conditioners.  Also the mouth is not quite big enough to insert my fingers into the conditioner and I have to pour the product out into my hand.  I did not care for the packaging of this product at all.

Julep Ultimate Mystery ZigZag Box

I purchased Juleps Ultimate Zigzag box almost 2 weeks ago and received it today.  I had purchased the Ultimate set, which was $39.99 and the mystery add on for $9.99.  The mystery add on items that I received were polishes in Zora and Karen, and lip scrub.  The contents of my ultimate box contained chevron nail stickers and polishes in Amy, Sienna, and Lois.  I also received their Beach Tonic body oil, Sea salt texture spray, double step foot treatment, cuticle oil.  Also I was pretty excited to receive the Freedom Polymer top coat.  This top coat is suppose to perform like a gel so this item had piqued my interest for a while now.  I was pretty pleased with the contents of my box as I have been interested in the top coat for a while and liked all the polish colors I received.  And oh yea, SEA SALT SPRAY! One of my favorite hair products ever.

Haircut…

Last night after work me and my make up newbie best friend, who I will here after refer to as Mun, went to cut our hair.  My hair was up to the middle off my back and I’ve been funding split ends lately and am constantly playing with my hair do wanted it to be a bit shorter so I wouldn’t play with it as much. 

I wanted a shoulder length tousled cut with a bit of a bang.  I brought in a pic to show the stylist as usual.  I should have know something was off when I asked him what kind of hair products I should use to achieve that messy tousled look.  He told me nothing.  Don’t use any products, just let your hair dry naturally.  I just listened although I was doubtful as I am a complete hair newbie.  Other than dying my hair every single color of the rainbow back in high school I really don’t know how to do anything else with it.

Half way through the cut I felt it was not going the way I wanted and I expressed it to Mun who was in the chair next to me getting her hair cut as well.  He knew I was upset and diff try to fix it and make it more like what I wanted.  Anyways props for effort but I don’t think I will be going back.  My hair looks like my mothers.
