Here are the products I've used up in July:

☑ Alberto VO5 Hot Oil Hair Treatment

I had higher hopes about this product... I guess plain old olive oil could do the job even better.

Repurchase? no

What I'm currently using to replace it: Alberto VO5 Deep Nourishing Moisture Intensive Mask 3 Minute Mask

 ☑ L'Oréal EverPure Moisture Conditioner (15 mL)

It did NOT prevent my hair color from fading.

Repurchase? no

What I'm currently using to replace it: Pantene Color Preserve Volume Hair Solutions Conditioner

 ☑ L'Oréal EverPure Moisture Shampoo (15 mL)

It did NOT prevent my hair color from fading.

Repurchase? no

What I'm currently using to replace it: Pantene Color Preserve Volume Hair Solutions Shampoo

☑ Baby Wipes Thick and Fluffy (75 wipes)

These come from the dollar store, so I didn't really expected them to be "thick and fluffy"... and they weren't. But I guess they do the job anyway, and I like the baby powder scent.

Repurchase? yes

What I'm currently using to replace it: -

☑ Bioré Steam Activated Cleanser (7 mL)

I'm a little disappointed as I haven't experienced anything special with this cleanser.

Repurchase? no

What I'm currently using to replace it: mark. That's Deep Purifying Cleanser with sugar maple/black willow bark

 ☑ Dove Ultimate Go Fresh Energizing Grapefruit & Lemongrass scent

It smells great and it does the job quite well.

Repurchase? yes

What I'm currently using to replace it: Secret Clinical Strength Light and Fresh scent (sample size 14g)

 ☑ Glamour Gal Shower Gel with the essence of roses, violets, lavender & musk

I have no idea where this shower gel comes from (it was a gift from my mother) but I would definitely not repurchase it. It is quite a normal shower gel, not to mention that I'm in love with my Caress Whipped Soufflé Body Wash =D

Repurchase? no

What I'm currently using to replace it: Caress Whipped Soufflé Body Wash

  2. @Chelsea: Well, I'd say it's a very avergade cleanser. It tends to dry my face, but I have to say that I have dry skin. I got it with tthe mark. starter kit, but I would not repurchase it.

  5. @ndoodles: I was really disappointed with it, so much that I used it as a bubble bath to get rid of it faster LOL.

    @Ms Bubu: Oui c'est une bonne crème solaire, mais la bouteille est tellement petite!

  6. Gaby,

    Nervous gal with an interview later this week...

    Do I go with the Dove you used or get the Secret Clinical - which would you trust.

    Thanks!

  7. @J in Jersey: I have two friends who sweat a lot and they swear by Secret Clinical. However, I personally do not need that much protection, so Dove is OK for me. Hope it helps!

  9. Hi Gaby :) I like how you tell us what you're using to replace your empties.
    I've bought a Dove deoderant and thought that it wasn't very clear - it would rub off if I was putting on a fitted black dress or top :\ Maybe I put too much on!? But I think you'll like the Secret Clinical strength sample. I really liked the sample so much I have bought the full sized.
    Ooo and I LOVE the Burt's Bees Peppermint foot lotion. It smells so good - and I also had the coconut foot lotion which I really really liked! I always try to get Burt's Bees proucts when they are on sale :)

  10. Oh yeah, the Caramel Apple one looks amazing, I bet it smells great!

    I like this blog post! It sad when most products have so much hype and they end up not working too well. I want to try some of that Summer Sunset body lotion!

  13. The L'Oreal Ever Pure stuff works great for my mom :) Crazy how different things work for different people.

  14. @~Lisa: Yes, it's a good sunscreen, but the bottle is so small!

    @Maria Elizabeth: That's great that it works for your mom. I only used some samples, maybe not enough to see long time results.

  16. @Lorin Kelly: It did absolutely nothing for my hair, so I consider it an absolute waste of money. I discovered their new 3 minute mask, and THIS is awesome!
