January Beauty Empties & Mini Reviews

Hi everyone!

Here are all the beauty products I used up in January.  As you can see I went through quite a few full size products and for some odd reason, this makes me extremely proud!  Anyone else feel that way when they finish a full size beauty product?



Body Products

Victoria's Secret Love Rocks Body Lotion
This was a great smelling body lotion.  It's so old that I don't even know if Victoria's Secret even sells it anymore.

Bath & Body Works Sugared Vanilla Wish Foaming Hand Soap
It's rare for me to not like a scent from Bath & Body Works but guys, this stuff smelled like feet!  It was torture for me to finish it, but finish it I did!

Face Products

Kate Somerville - ExfoliKate
This is a great face scrub.  It's really expensive though so I wouldn't purchase a full size.  There's a few exoliators that I like more that are much more affordable.

Fresh - Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask
Although I only used this once, I could tell that I liked this face mask.  It made my skin look brighter and feel cleaner.  It's not my favorite mask, but it's definitely a good one.

Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask
This is a great hydrating moisturizer.  I used this a couple times after I used my GlamGlow mud masks.  I'd consider buying this when I run out of my millions of other deep moisturizers.

Josie Maran - Argan Cleansing Oil
This was a good cleansing oil but nothing special.  It did a good job at breaking up my makeup to be washed off.  As with any cleansing oil, I always followed up with a real face cleanser.  I wouldn't repurchase. 

Revlon ColorsStay Eyeliner in Blackberry
I didn't like this eyeliner.  It felt dry even when it was new, and actually I'm throwing it away because it recently dried up completely.

EOS Lip Balm
This lip balm is fine.  There's absolutely nothing special about it and there are much cheaper ones that are more moisturizing.  This just feels like a wax on my lips.  I wouldn't repurchase.

Jack Black Lip Balm
I really like this lip balm.  It does feel like it helps heal my dry lips.  I'd purchase this.

Hair Products

One 'n Only Argan Oil - Oil Treatment
This was a decent hair serum and it tamed my frizz a little.  Too much made my hair look really greasy though.  There wasn't anything special about it and I wouldn't repurchase. 

Living Proof - Restore Hair Mask
This hair mask was just ok.  I liked that it was very thick but my hair didn't feel THAT great after using it.  Also, I think I'm the only one but I really don't like the fragrance of Living Proof products.  To me they smell like Raid...yes, the bug spray. 

Aussie 3 Minute Moist Miracle Deep Conditioner
I like this deep conditioner.  It's only a few bucks and it did a great job at making my hair feel more hydrated.

Pantene Color Preserve Volume Weightless Conditioner
I should never have even bought this because anything "weightless" won't work for my super dry hair.  I need really thick conditioners.  I had to use a ton of product just to be able to work this into my hair.  It didn't make my hair feel softer or healthier at all.  I wouldn't repurchase.

Frizz Ease Hair Spray
This is a great hairspray and it's my holy grail.  It doesn't not leave your hair "touchable".  It holds styles wonderfully though and isn't that all we want our hairspray to do anyways?

Well those are the beauty products I finished in January.  As you can see I somehow went through a lot of hair products which is a strange coincidence.  I can tell you right now that I'll be finishing up quite a few face cleansers for my February empties.  Funny how that works.

Have you tried any of these products?  What are you thoughts on them??

Extras:

Happy Birthday to Me (yesterday)! :)

As you've probably heard on the news, we've gotten pummeled with tons of snow.  I'm so over it!

I've had a very stressful beginning of the year but it seems like things are calming down...fingers crossed!

I'm going to IMATS NYC!  Who else is going??
