July Empties

Hey y'all!  Wow, I can't believe it's almost August already.  Summer is almost over, the kiddo will be back to school soon, and College Football starts later this month.

I actually finished a few more products than what I have here, but this is what I was able to save.

Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Hair Color in 6RR - This color is called Runway Red.  I had to get a lot of brassiness out of my hair which I think was the result of using my Loreal HiLights red colors.  While I was doing that, I grabbed this because it was different than what I'd been doing, which is darker more purple/reds.  I put this on and my hair looked Hayley Williams orange, it kinda freaked me out.  However, as I let it sit then washed it out, it did turn more orangey/red.  It's bright and I haven't had my hair this color in a while, but I like it.  My only problem was that it took FOREVER to mix.  The tube with the color in it split in several different places and it took about 20 minutes just to get the color out of the tube.  I might give it another try, but not sure on that yet.

Excedrin Tension Headache - I've had migraines for years, different types and different triggers.  I try to stay away from many of my triggers as much as I can.  Whenever I get a tension migraine, I take one of these along with a soda & put my heat wrap on my shoulders.  This is the only OTC medicine that seems to help.  I need to repurchase this big time.

BBW PocketBac - This one is in Rockin' Cotton and has the cutest "Mommy" tattoo design on it.  I really love these.  I have them all over my house, in my purse, everywhere.  They're easy to stock up on when they have 5 for $5 sales.  I have a bucket full of them because I tend to grab a few about once or twice a year.  The scent on this one wasn't too bad either.

Victoria's Secret Pink perfume - I absolutely LOVE this scent.  They had one ages ago, I think it was Island Passion, that I absolutely fell in love with.  Unfortunately, they discontinued it and I couldn't find a VS scent that I liked.....until this.  It's fresh and floral and yummy.  As long as they make this, I will continue to purchase it.  Thankfully, I still have another smaller bottle like this one that I'm working on as well as the body spray.

Secret Scent Expressions Deodorant - This is in Diva La Daisy.  I haven't used any Secret deodorant's other than the clinical ones in a few years.  I decided to give this a go.  It's lightly floral, but not lingering, and actually works pretty well.  I did notice a few times that it left marks on black clothing but not too often.  I'm trying out another Secret product right now, but I would purchase this again. 

Pantene Natural Co-Wash Cleansing Conditioner - A while back I wanted to try a few different products specified for naturally curly hair.  I normally wouldn't try Pantene products, because they kill my hair, but heard good things about this.  It works pretty well, but I did find that I had to clarify more often while using it.  There's no way that I could use just this and nothing else.  I probably wouldn't repurchase.

WEN Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner - I tried WEN ages ago and loved it.  However, I don't like the price.  I received 2 bottles of this for Christmas & earlier this month finally finished up one bottle.  I think I actually started using it in late January though, but that is a good amount of time to last.  It makes my hair super soft, tingles a little leaving my scalp feeling amazing, and doesn't weigh my hair down at all.  I can even use a little bit just on the ends as a leave in with nothing else in my hair and zero frizz.  Right now I'm trying another alternative, but I still have the other bottle to use up.  I will always recommend this if you can afford it.

CocoaPink Ends w/Argan Benefits - You can see my review of this HERE.  I am absolutely 100% in love with this product and would recommend it to everyone I know.  It's a multi-tasker and OMG it smells amazing.  

Nivea Touch Of Waterlily Shower Gel - Thankfully I think this was the last of the Nivea shower gels from my stockpile.  I like the smell, but absolutely HATE the packaging on this.  It's a pain to open so most times I wouldn't completely press the lid down on it.  I didn't find it super moisturizing to warrant a repurchase.  If the packaging were better, I'd buy it for the smell alone. 

That wraps up the products I used up last month.  While I thought I'd finished more, it was still a pretty decent amount. 


  1. Nice empties for the month! Thinking of doing these too but I'm not sure if anyone would be interested.

    1. I find that it actually holds me accountable to finish products up rather than just wasting money and tossing them out, if I don't like them. I've also stopped buying and buying when I have plenty of something that I need to use first. It's like a bunch of mini-reviews all in one.
