December Beauty Empties & Review

Hi Beauties!

Here's everything I used up in December and mini reviews of each item!

Hair Products

Nexxus Youth Renewal Conditioner
I like this conditioner.  It makes my hair really soft and it smells amazing.  I'd repurchase if there was a nice sale and I had coupons.

Proganix Anti-Fade Conditioner
This is a good conditioner that smells like cherry blossom which is amazing!  It definitely didn't do much to prevent my hair color from fading though so if I were to purchase this, it would only be for the scent.

John Frieda 7 Day Volume In-Shower Treatment
This didn't do much for my hair but make it feel really heavy.  I wouldn't purchase this.

Eva-NYC Hair Mask
This hair mask was just ok.  It wasn't super thick so I needed a TON to cover all of my hair.  I wouldn't repurchase this.

Kenra Platinum Blow-Dry Spray
This is one of my favorite hair discoveries of 2015!  It truly does cut down on my blow dry time and it makes my hair really soft and smooth.  I have several backups of this product from when Ulta had a sale earlier this year.


Murad Skin Smoothing Polish
This is one of my favorite exfoliators!  It is gentle enough to use everyday yet does a great job at sloughing away my dead skin.  You can read my full review by clicking the link above.

Cotton Clouds Facial Cotton
These are a 100% dupe of the Shiseido Facial Cottons!  You can read my comparison post of the two HERE.

Simple Moisturizing Facial Wash
I didn't enjoy this face cleanser.  It barely removed my makeup and it had a weird stretchy consistency.

Pond's Wet Cleansing Towelettes
These were really great cleansing cloths!  They had a good amount of moisture and did a great job of removing my non-waterproof makeup.

Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment
This is a very moisturizing eye cream and right now my under eyes and lids are super dry and flaky so it's just what I need.

Kiehl's Rosa Arctica Eye
This was a decent eye cream but not as moisturizing as I need at this time.

Tatcha Indigo Soothing Renewal Treatment
This is a thick face moisturizer that I used after my weekly mud mask treatment.  What's weird about this is that the product is actually a blue-ish/gray color so it was weird to apply and work into my skin (and not wash it off).  It didn't stain my skin or pillowcase but I still found it a bit odd.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair
I've gone through a million samples of this product and I never saw anything great about it.  I wouldn't repurchase a full size.

Body Products

Secret Clinical Strength Waterproof Deodorant
This is the best deodorant I've ever used.  I probably have 7 back-ups of it.


Rainbow Honey Nail Polish
I loved this sparkly blue nail polish but to my dismay, it totally dried out after having it for about a year.

Dolce & Gabbana Passion Eyes Mascara
This mascara has a plastic brush and is very dry.  It gives a VERY natural look, even with 3 coats. The full size costs about $30 which is WAY overpriced in my opinion.

I hope everyone has a happy and safe New Year!
