Monthly Empties: January 2015

Hey everyone!

We’re already in February?!? Crazy!!! And for once in the past 4 (or 5?) months I’m relatively on time with my monthly empties, yay! 🙂

Let’s see what products I finished in January…

EVulcano – Hair Wash & Hair Cream Orange light - it's okay
I received these items in my Winter 2014 Loose Button Luxe Box. They smell good, like lemon, but it’s not a scent I want to have in my hair all day long. The products worked ok. I’ve definitely tried worse, but they’re not as good as my regular products.

Live Clean – Argan Oil Leave-in Conditioner Spray Green light - loved it
I bought this product last summer and I really like it because it adds sun protection to your hair. I had not used it since and went to use it last week just to freshen up my 2nd day hair and I think it went bad because it smelled funky. I will buy a new one this summer and make sure I use it all within a few months.

The Body Shop – Chocomania Body Butter Green light - loved it
This body butter smells delicious! It doesn’t quite smell like real chocolate, but it’s sweet and yummy! It hydrates really well too.

The Body Shop – Born Lippy Strawberry Lip Balm Green light - loved it
I kept this lip balm on my night table and used it every night before going to bed. It smelled delicious and I always woke up with smooth lips.

TRESemm̩ Р7 days keratin smooth shampoo & conditioner Green light - loved it
I don’t remember where I got these foilies from, but I was saving them for a day when I was planning on straightening my hair. However, I procrastinated too much in buying more shampoo and conditioner so I had to use them on a regular day (no straightening) – boo to that. They made my hair feel very soft and light, and thinner for some reason. My hair also seemed a bit straighter than usual (I find products that make my hair feel thinner tend to do that). The scent was just okay for me, but I really liked how they made my hair feel. Too bad I didn’t get to straighten my hair. There was a serum foilie too so that one I’m saving for a straight hair day.

Nail Products Clean-up

It’s time to do some clean-up and throw out the products I don’t use anymore. I’m starting with my nail products.

Butter London – Hardwear P.D. Quick Top Coat Green light - loved it
Love this one, but it just got really thick and it pulls when I retrieve the wand, making fine hairs of topcoat everywhere. Will buy more though.

China Glaze – Fast Freeze Quick Dry Drops Red light - dislike
These leave a blue tint on my polish which I do not like, so I never use it anymore. I obviously used it a lot though (at first when it was the only one I had).

OPI – Nail Envy Nail Strengthener Orange light - it's okay
This one worked well, but I keep my nails too short to really say if it makes a difference or not.

OPI – Top Coat Red light - dislike
This topcoat bubbles like crazy so I do not like it.

S̬che Vite РTop Coat Orange light - it's okay
Dries really fast and gives a great shine, but gets gloopy and shrinks on the nails. This one barely even moves when I turn it on its side.



That’s it for this month! Have you tried any of these products? What did you finish in January?
