EMPTIES: January 2024

EMPTIES: January 2024


As you can see, I didn’t use up that many products in January that I did in the previous. So, keep reading for a quick run down and final thoughts on my empties from January 2024.

The first product is Ouidad Climate Control Spray to revive curls. I’m dedicated to repairing and strengthening my hair, which has me wearing my natural curls. I picked up this travel size of this product, because I needed a refresher spray for my curls. However, I’ve used OUIDAD products and even the shampoo and conditioner from this collection. So, I has high hopes in this spray and it did not disappoint. This spray revived and hydrated my curls without weighing them down. I buying the full size next time.

Last month, I mentioned how this SPF 30 version of Biore UV sunscreen was going to be in this month’s EMPTIES post. As I’ve previously mentioned, this a hydrating sunscreen that almost feels like applying a light moisturizer. I highly recommend this sunscreen for almost all skin types.

Finally, OUAI North Bondi perfume finally tapped out. Since I’ve been tapping more into floral scents, this turned out to be nice floral scent to test the waters. The thing about this scent is that I forget how much I love the way it smells until I smell it again. It’s a perfect blend of floral, musk and little bergamot and lemon. Honestly, those are some of my favorite notes for summer. Currently hoping I remember this the next time I looking to buy a scent in the summer.

Recent Empties…October 2014


As I’ve recently said, I’m starting to get out of my “lazy” phase and starting to doll up more. So, I’ve been using up products that have been lurking in the shadows of the cabinet in my bathroom. So, here are some of the items I recently emptied and ran out.

  • Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Double Face Perfector – I’m a huge fan of Maybelline’s Instage Age Rewind line, especially the under eye concealer and powders. However, this one was just “alright”. This product has been discontinued, but there are still some online retailers with a few left in stock, if you are interested. It was just too creamy for my needs and the highlighter was cool.
  • Lash Potion by Grow Luscious Volume + Length Mascara – I really loved this mascara. It lengthened and made my lashes a little more voluminous. I will buy this one again.
  • L’Oreal Ever Sleek Humidity Defying Leave-In Creme – I can’t tell how long I’ve had this, but I was sent this a couple of years ago and it’s pretty decent. I used it while air-drying my hair before flat-ironing it and it helped combat frizz, even in the humid, southern heat of the summer. I would buy this again.
  • B&BW Forever Midnight Body Cream – I found this half-full bottle in a purse I was using last winter and fell in love with this rich vanilla and floral scent. A nice scent for fall and winter.
  • Cantu Shea Butter Coconut Curling Cream – I’ve been wearing my hair straight for the past few months, but my hair has been a extremely dry and kind of thin after the heat from tools and the sun, not to mention the constant efforts to lighten my hair.  So, I’m donning my natural curly hair and going heat-free for at least a month.  I’ve been dusting off pieces from my arsenal of curly hair products and this cream was the first victim to run out. I already bought another jar, because my curls love it and the smell of coconuts is lovely in breezy fall day.

Stay Stylish!
