May Beauty Empties - Products I Used Up & Mini Reviews

Here's another month that I finished a TON of products!

Hair Products

Nexxus Comb Thru Touchable Hold Hairspray
This hairspray came free when I purchased a conditioner.  There was absolutely nothing special about this hairspray, it barely held my hair in place.  I wouldn't repurchase.

Herbal Essences Hydra-Licious & De-Damage Boost Conditioner
For just a few bucks this is a good conditioner but nothing special.  I'll continue to purchase because it's so cheap and smells awesome.

L'Oreal Preference Mousse Absolue
This hair color is super convenient because you don't have to do any mixing and you don't have to use it all at once.  It's great for my roots because I don't have to use the whole thing at once.  However, it didn't do the best job at covering all of my grays.  I'd still repurchase though, for the convenience.

Eva-NYC Hairpsray
I really liked this hairspray.  It did a good job at holding my hairstyles.  I'd repurchase.

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Shampoo, Conditioner, 5 in 1 Styling Treatment
These products are supposed to improve hair over time.  I don't know about that since these were just sample sizes.  They were decent products but as I've stated before, I'm not a huge fan of the scent of Living Proof products so I wouldn't repurchase.

Tresemme Keratin Smooth 7 Day Smooth Control Starter Set
This was supposed to produce "salon smooth hair for the week or up to 3 washes".  I didn't notice anything special about these 3 products when used together.  My hair wasn't any smoother at all.  I wouldn't repurchase this system.  Individually the products were fine.

Alterna Caviar CC Cream 10-in-1 Complete Correction Leave-In Hair Perfector
This hair cream kind of weighted my hair down and I hated the scent.  It smelled like Living Proof products on crack!

Body Products

Bath & Body Work Provence Garden Hand Soap
This smelled like a perfumey garden, I loved it!

Soap & Glory Hand Food
This was a wonderful thick hand cream.  I'd repurchase.

The Body Shop Body Butter
I don't know the official scent of this but it smelled AMAZING!  It smelled like a mix of flowers and candy and was SO thick.  I'd 100% repurchase.

Secret Outlast Clear Gel Deodorant
I actually really liked this deodorant.  I usually only use clinical strength deodorants but this one worked just as well.  I'd repurchase.

Face Products

Alpha Hydrox Foaming Face Wash
I liked using this face wash after my regular makeup removing face wash.  It rinsed clean and felt light and fresh.

L'Oreal Revitalist Cream Cleanser
I didn't like this cleanser.  The creaminess had an almost stretchy consistency.  It also didn't do the best job at removing my face makeup.  I wouldn't repurchase. 

Estee Lauder Resilience Lift Face Cream
This is a very thick face cream but it's also extremely perfumey.  I didn't like that aspect of it so I actually used this on my hands and it was a great thick hand cream.

GlamGlow SuperMud Face Mask
If you are a regular reader of The Beauty Isle you know that I LOVE GlamGlow face masks.  You can read my review of all of them here.  I already have backups of this.

m-61 Jet Glow Serum
I reviewed this and the cream version here.  I actually prefer the cream version as I feel it gives more noticeable results.

Makeup/Face Products

Estee Lauder Sumptuous Mascara
I've gone through several sample tubes of this and I've never found it to be anything special.  I wouldn't purchase a full size.

Laura Mercier Universal Setting Powder
I really liked using this as an under eye setting powder.  I will say that it has major white cast from flash photos.  For that reason I wouldn't purchase a full size.  Has anyone tried the Secret Setting powder?  I'd like to try that one.

Lush None of You Beeswax Lip Balm
This was a great lip balm.  Though I prefer lip balms in a tube that I don't have to dip my finger into so I wouldn't repurchase.

ELF Lip Exfoliator
This is a great exfoliator for the price.  However, I prefer sugar lip scrubs in a tub like my faveorite one from Lush.  Because I've discovered that and even though it's a lot more expensive, I'd still purchase that over this ELF one.


I have a few weeks off from work in the month of June and I already have a huge To Do List!  One of the major things is clearing out my closet of old clothes.  I know this will be difficult for me but I really don't like most of my wardrobe.  Plus it will give me a good reason to shop for new clothes! 

TV shows...what should I binge watch?  I'm trying HBO's True Detective but I'm not too sure on it yet.  I heard House of Cards is great?
