February Empties


evo Mane Tamer Smoothing Shampoo & Conditioner – Every now and then I come across a product that smells so good I want to eat it. This is one of those products. The scent of the conditioner reminded me of caramel mudcake, which lingered on my hair and made for a very pleasant hair-washing experience. Besides that and more importantly, as a shampoo & conditioner these both worked really well. My hair can get a bit dry and frizzy during summer, and these helped to tame my fly-aways during that time. I would definitely consider purchasing the full sized versions of these in the future.

Paula’s Choice Moisture Boost Essential Hydrating Toner – I rotate between three different Paula’s Choice toners, and this is my favourite. It makes a noticeable difference in the hydration levels of my skin, and is a lifesaver during the times of the year when my skin is drier than usual. I tend to pick up one of each toner when I place my Paula’s Choice orders, so no doubt I’ll be cycling back around to this again soon.

Tony & Guy Flexible Hold Hairspray – I told myself I needed to use up all of my hairspray stash before repurchasing another of my holy grail (O&M Queenie, for those playing at home), and this was the last product I needed to finish. To be honest, Sebastian used up most of this tube because he has discovered that the best way to tame his hair is not gel, it’s hairspray. This did a good job of both holding a curl in my fine hair, and maintaining control of his extremely thick and wavy hair.

Glasshouse Candle in The Hamptons (teak & petitgrain) – I picked this up to burn in our living room because it’s such a fresh and light scent. I love using Glasshouse candles in our living areas because the throw of the scent is far enough to fill a large space. I had a couple of friends comment on how nice this scent was while they were visiting, which is the sign of a good home fragrance for me.

Pantene Pro-V 3 Minute Miracle – This has been my little hair lifesaver for many years now. I try to pace myself with these because I don’t want to run out too soon, but one of these tubes is enough to give me three deep conditions of my hair. This never fails to leave my hair soft, silky, and shiny.

[sample] By Terry Baum De Rose – I was really disappointed by this. It had been hyped up for me for so long as being one of the best lip balms, but I found it to be way too heavily scented and felt like it was so thick that it just sat on my lips rather than moisturising them. It’s probably a good thing that I didn’t fall madly in love with this, because it’s certainly not an inexpensive product.
