Body & Hair Empties Jan-June

Lots of empties!


1. L'Oreal Color Radiance Shampoo:
I received this from Influenster, you can read about that here. I quite enjoyed this shampoo, it lathered well, smelled great and seemed to last quite a while. It did a fine job of protecting my colour, but there are other shampoos that work just as well or better. I'm still working through the conditioner & the color treatment.

2. Herbal Essences Naked Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner:
I received these from BzzzAgent, you can read more about that here. These claim to be more natural. I liked the shampoo okay, the scent doesn't thrill me, but the shampoo worked okay. The conditioner didn't do much for my long, tangled hair.

3. Batiste Dry Shampoo:
I use up about one of these a month and enjoy them so much! Before these, I washed my hair every day, now I can wash it every second or third day without feeling dirty or greasy. They are lifesavers!

4. Body Shop Banana Shampoo:
I LOVE this shampoo! It smells so good and does a wonderful job of cleaning my hair, without leaving any build-up. I can't wait to use this again!

5. Chi Helmet Head Extra Firm Hair Spray:
This is my new favourite hair spray. I don't mind the scent of it, and it leaves my hair in place, but not crunchy. It adds volume and holds all day. I have already purchased a larger size!

6. RUSK Heatshift Re-styling Cream:
I enjoyed using this. I smelled so good and help keep the frizz away and hold my hairstyle in place.

7. OBLIPHICA Professionals Seaberry Hair Serum:
This is so nice! It smells heavenly (vanilla) and reduced the frizz in my hair. I would buy a larger size, if I ever see it.

8. Briogeo Blossom & Bloom Ginseng & Biotin Volumizer:
This smells like citrus and definitely added volume to my hair. For me, it's not a necessary step in my hair routine, but it was nice to have.

9. AVEDA Volumizing Tonic:
Again, this added volume to my hair. A nice step, but not necessary for me. It smelled more herbal, which I didn't mind.

10. NEXXUS Rejuvenating Elixir:
This was okay, I honestly didn't notice a difference in my hair while using this. I didn't like the dropper style packaging. Nothing special for me.

Body Products

1. Dove Pistachio Cream with Magnolia Nourishing Body Wash:
This is an all time favourite of mine. It moisturizes my skin and smells so so so good! Will be buying more when I run out of other body products!

2. Dial Coconut Water Hydrating Body Wash: 
This has a nice, fresh, tropical scent. It is supposed to be moisturizing, but I actually found it quite drying. Not a fan.

3. Body Shop Mini Shower Gels in Mango, Satsuma & Glazed Apple (x2):
I like these minis for travel. I really like the glazed apple & mango scents. the satsuma is okay, but a bit strong for my liking. They are not really anything special, but convenient for travel.

4. Prevailing Organic Essentials Apple Bath & Shower Gel:
I didn't like this. The scent was nice, but it was really thick and hard to get out of the packaging. I wouldn't invest in a larger size.

5. Body Shop Body Butters in Glazed Apple & Vineyard Peach:
These are my favourite creams. They are so rich and moisturizing. I like to apply them at night, as it does take some time for my skin to absorb them. The peach scent wasn't my favourite.

6. St. Ives Fresh Hydration Continuous Spray Lotion in Coconut Milk & Orchid Extract:
This was a mess. It had a nice sweet coconut scent, but the nozzle on it sprayed everywhere. It is a light moisturizer and didn't do a whole lot for my skin.

7.Soap & Glory Hand Food Hydrating Hand Cream:
I really like this product! It is so moisturizing and helped heal my poor dry hands. I would purchase this again, but it is s expensive in Canada compares to USA. :(

8. Juara Candlenut Body Creme:
The scent of this was a bit too perfume-like for me. It was also a very small size sample of a body cream, so it was hard to really get a feel for if I liked it or not.

9.Gilette Venus with Olay Vanilla Cashmere Shave Gel:
To me, shaving gel is shaving gel. I buy whatever is on sale, usually. This worked well, smelled nice and left my skin feeling soft.

10. Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Bubbling Bath : 
I have just recently begun enjoying baths. This foamed up really well and smelled nice. Very relaxing! I already have another!

11.Gilette Satin Care with Olay Sensitive Shave Gel:
Again, nice!

12. Secret Clinical Clear Gel Antiperspirant/Deodorant:
This left me feeling a bit wet under my arms, it didn't absorb quickly and had a bit of a strong scent for my liking. I won't be buying the full size.

13. St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub:
This was very abrasive and didn't smell as fruity as I had anticipated. It was so-so for me.

14: B. Kamins Bio Maple, Maple Sugar Body Scrub:
This was a very course, harsh scrub. It was a very small sample size for a body scrub, so again hard to judge if I truly liked it or not.
