Empties: #2 (Haircare)

1. Head & Shoulders Eucalyptus 

I received this sample from PinchMe (overview coming soon), and loved it. I don't know what it is about the smell but it smelt like candy to me. Surprisingly I got about 5 uses from this tiny sample so I was really able to test it out. If you have a sensitive scalp I don't think this'll be good for you. While it doesn't tingle I would still suggest you stay away. If you have a problem with your hair falling out in the shower I recommend this and the Head & Shoulders anti breakage shampoo. While I still have hair fallout it is about 3/4 less than it used to. 

Repurchase: Already have 

2. Organic Care Nourish Shampoo 

This is a nice shampoo. It smells like coconut and macadamia and it did a good job of cleaning my hair. I used to repurchase this all the time for about a year but I decided to try other products which worked out a lot better for me so unfortunately I won't repurchase it but I loved it while I used it.  

Repurchase: No

3. Organic Care Nourish Conditioner

Once again good a conditioner but I've moved onto something else for now, we'll see. This was in my last empties, click here. Honestly it's not super hydrating but it was nice. 

Repurchase: Not sure 

4. Head & Shoulders anti-breakage shampoo
I also enjoyed this, it had a similar effect on my hair as the eucalyptus in terms of minimising hair breakage (which is why I bought it). But I preferred the smell of the other.

Repurchase: Maybe

5. Girlz Only Dry Shampoo
I really enjoy these. They don't make my hair white but they will if you spray too much. There are so many scents that I think there would be one to suit most people's taste. It does a good job at absorbing the oil. The only thing negative I have to say is that 2 of these stop working after ONE use. Something happened with the nozzle/spray top (not sure what it's called). I used it once and the product wouldn't stop spraying so I put the lid on and next time I opened it liquid came out (so be WARNED). But they're only $2 so it's okay but if it happens too often I will stop purchasing it. 

Hazy days (Light pink/purple) - light, fruity scent
Dawn 'til Dusk (Teal) -  strong kind of manly smell
Brighter pink  - stronger floral scent 

Sorry about the bad descriptions

Repurchase: Yes

Review: ColorBurst Lipstick in Petal and Peach

Claim: "Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick has a formula that feels weightless on the lips. It includes innovative pigments that delivers high impact colour in one swipe. The elasticolour formulation is designed to distribute rich colour pigments evenly over the lips and allows for a comfortable feel. The formula is also enriched with moisturisers and antioxidants such as sweet almond oil to improve lip texture and prevent drying." (from

Packaging: Love, Love, Love. It's gorgeous. The quilted pattern, the tops (showing quite an accurate representation of the colour) and the way REVLON is embossed on the lpstick itself, reminds me of high-end packaging. 

Formula: They are smooth and easy to apply. The colour payoff is actually quite sheer, so to get good coverage you need to really build it up and if you have more pigmented lips then your lip colour will definitely show through. Even with my medium pigmented lips, my natural lip colour shows through.

Empties: #3 (Skincare)

As a reference I have combination skin. Non sensitive and not acne prone. 

1. Biore Revitalise 4-in-1 Self Foaming Cleanser This is my second bottle of this cleanser. I love it. For the first few uses it tingles slightly on the skin which I love however the tingling does stop after using the product for a while. It makes my face feel clean without being tight.
Would I repurchase? Definitely 
2. Warming Anti-Blackhead Cream Cleanser  This did NOTHING for me. I have blackheads all around my nose and this did nothing to diminish them. The product itself doesn't warm up for long, the heat last for around 10 seconds and really doesn't do anything. It has very, very small exfoliating beads (ingredients) but personally I prefer something a bit more rough because this one just did nothing for me.  
Would I repurchase? Definitely no
3. Garnier Clean Sensitive 2 in 1 Gentle Make-up Remover Love, Love, Love. This is really good value for an awesome makeup remover. I only use this for my eye make…
