My Recent Empties

Have you ever had one of “those” weeks?  I know you have. We all have them from time to time.  One of those weeks where everything just feels a little sideways and nothing gets done like you want it to.  I sure had one of those last week.  This week has to be the opposite just based on odds, right?

In the spirit of starting fresh, I have some recent empties to share with you.  I’ve used up a bunch of different things recently and thought I would share them.


Product: It’s a 10 miracle leave-in plus Keratin
Pros: Supposed to offer everything + the kitchen sink to your hair, great price
Cons: Weighed my hair down and didn’t add shine
Would I use it again?: No
Do I need to restock?: No

Product: Matrix Heat Resist Blowout Tamer
Pros: Made my curls look defined and bouncy, heat protection
Cons: Hmmm…. I can’t think of one
Would I use it again?: Absolutely
Do I need to restock?: I will

Product: Pureology Colour Stylist Volumizing Mousse
Pros: Volume, softness
Cons: No hold, no shine
Would I use it again?: Probably not because I prefer more hold
Do I need to restock?: No


Product: StriVectinLABS 5-Minute Glycolic Peel
Pros: Exfoliated, smooth, refreshed skin in only 5 minutes
Cons: Slightly odd smell
Would I use it again?: Definitely
Do I need to restock?: I will


This last one didn’t make it into my group photo, but I thought it was worth mentioning…

Product: NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder
Pros: Easy to work with, very natural, great price
Cons: I can’t figure out the wax, but that’s probably a Mandy issue
Would I use it again?: Yes, but my brows are disappearing fast. This one is better for touchups.
Do I need to restock?: Not critical


Have you tried any of these?  Are they on your restock list?  I’d love to know!
