Empties #3

Soap & Glory Hand Food - Wonderful scent, nice and moisturizing, non-sticky and all for only five dollars.  Third empty tube and counting.  Repurchase: Yes

Dermophil - Can't say I really used this product up.  However, I most definitely would have except for the fact that I left it in my luggage, in a car, in Sacramento for about five hours in 100 degree heat.  Of course it would melt! Why didn't I think of that before I left it in the car??  I love this lip balm and need to research where I can get it in the US since I picked this up in Paris in the Spring. Repurchase: Yes

L'Oreal OleoTherapy Shampoo & Conditioner - These did absolutely nothing for my hair.  Points for being sulfate free but if doesn't do anything then it's not even worth it.  They don't have a particularly great smell, they don't moisturize, the shampoo is gloopy.... I could go on but I will refrain.  I ended up using the conditioner as shaving cream because I couldn't take washing my hair with it anymore.  Repurchase: No and No

Nip & Fab Detox Blend - Mentioned on here before.  It's love.  Repurchase: Yes!!

Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist - Mini size finished, regular size almost finished.  I love the concept of a spray toner; it feels great on the skin and I don't feel wasteful using another cotton round.  This smells amazing, the packaging is luxurious and it dries into the sink nicely.  However, I am sure another product can produce the same results at a much less painful price.  Repurchase: No

Elta MD UV Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 46 - Recommended by my dermatologist (who I love) and does not cause breakouts.  I'm religious in applying this since I've already had skin cancer removed from my face and it is most definitely something I never want to go through again.  Repurchase: Yes

Maybelline Great Lash Clear Mascara - Price- great.  Product - eh.   It is extremely liquidy.  When you remove the wand from the tube you literally have to scrape so much excess product off beforehand or when you run it through your eyebrows they will have a bad wet, gel look going on (which isn't flattering at all).  Repurchase: No

Whish Shave Cream - Birchbox sample that affirms my love/hate relationship with monthly boxes.  I like trying new products, and getting products delivered in the mail, but well over 50% of the time I don't like the samples.  This smells really bad to me, but I could get over the scent if the product was good.... which it isn't.  When I applied it to my legs, instead of the razor gliding over the product (and thereby moisturizing and protecting your leg from the blade), all of the product is collected by the razor blade sort of like when you use a scraper on your car windows to get snow off.  Because of that there is literally no point in using it, it doesn't do anything.  It also left a sticky, tight, film over my legs that I did not appreciate.  Repurchase: Most definitely not

Beauty Protector Protect & Oil - After I just ranted about samples and Birchbox, here is a sample that I actually really liked.  I found myself reaching for this oil over my Moroccan Oil every time I washed my hair.  Gorgeous scent, cute glass packaging and the oil really sinks into your hair.  You can feel softer hair before you even blow your hair dry.  If an oil can be considered 'creamy' this one definitely would, it literally melts into your hair upon use. Repurchase: Yes

Garnier Fructis Volume Extend Dry Shampoo - Nothing fancy here, just dry shampoo.  Worked well enough and didn't make my hair too crispy or sticky when applied.  Repurchase: Probably
