Re: Empties - 2019

Olaplex did nothing for my hair, I gave it to my sister who loves it... tho I see absolutely no difference in her hair at all


I’m a hair fanatic, watch many you tube videos about styling etc, but for me L’oreal Shampoos and conditioners (currently loving the Ever Pure) and once a week with L’Oreal Ever Pure Repair Remedy Balm, does the trick. I also use It’s a 10 leave in conditioner on the days I’m not using the Balm, none from Sephora, but no worries, I feel I’m contributing nonetheless to Sephora’s success 😂 I do love love love the Ouai hair oil, the Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s invisible oil and have been a big user of Living Proof products, currently the Dry Volume Blast


i recently got the the most amazing tool, I’m obsessed with the Dyson Air Wrap! Thank u Sephora for 20% off Rouge event bc I finally got it and LOVE 💕 

Re: Empties - 2019

@ginnykc @Cyncynn @Weetart I thought the same about The Olaplex (did nothing for me) but I was using it as a deep conditioner and their site says it is NOT a conditioner. And that it should be used on unwashed hair.29F58FA6-EC5C-4778-BEF1-14A7AB7C951B.jpeg

I need to try it and see how it works when I follow the instructions 😄

RE: Empties - 2019

LOVE the Korres Greek Yoghurt Cleanser and will absolutely repurchase! Have they done anything about the gross lid that gets all gunky? This one lasted me 4 months so I remain hopeful. Lid notwithstanding, this is so gentle and non drying. I use this at night and YTTP Superfoods Cleanser in the morning. Love them both. LOVE the Volition Snow Mushroom Water Serum. Soooo hydrating. I probably don’t even need moisturizer with it. It does pill up a little under makeup so I only use at night or on no makeup days under sunscreen. Will repurchase. DISLIKED the Daylogic eye makeup remover pads due to unpleasant scent and also when I opened them they were not very juicy. Kind of dry. I Like that they are oil free. I will keep trying things until I find a cruelty free, oil free HG.

Re: RE: Empties - 2019

Oh wow, great uses out of the Korres cleanser @christyrc !

oh heck yes @christyrc the volition mushroom serum is exc...

Re: Empties - 2019

@MSena  I really want to try Su:m37 products! I only heard great things about the brand.

Re: Empties - 2019

@Cyncynn I adore Sum37. I prefer the Water-Full set to the Secret Set, but you can't go wrong with Sum37. It kept my skin alive during the long Michigan winter. 

Expensive though! 

Re: Empties - 2019

Whoa! Nice amount of empties @MSena . You know I also just used up a bottle of the Culturelle orange probiotic, didn’t even think of putting it on here. I liked it alright, but I prefer the orange banana smoothie align ones. Problem is they are way more expensive.

Re: Empties - 2019

@Weetart That sounds delicious and now I'm intrigued! 

But yes, I love including bottles of vitamins in my empties because I kid myself it's inner beauty. Before I did this, I was nursing a sad bottle of Omega-3 for over a year until I threw it away. Felt bad. 

Re: Empties - 2019

@MSena Seriously, I get the gummies or flavored ones because I know I wont take them unless they taste good. I've tried, and nope nope nope. I have malabsorption and so I "get" to have periodic blood tests to check all my levels for everything. So on doctors orders I take a probiotic (Align works the best for me), multi, D3 (2000 IU), and B12 (3000 mcg) daily. I also have a chronic sodium deficiency so doc told me to add extra salt to my food (yuck). Everything is always on the slow decline even without the vitamins so I get to have prescription crazy strength once every 6 months or so. I don't bother with other supplements because this is enough work for me alone.

Re: Empties - 2019

@Weetart  I should get the gummies, too. I keep forgetting there are delicious versions of pills out there. 

I'm sorry about the malabsorption! Sorry to be asking so many questions, but how did you find what pills work best for you? I've been riding the Centrum & Biotin & Omega 3 & Lutein train for years but always got the same brand. My friends tell me there are better brands out there but I've no clue how to land the "right" brand. 

Re: Empties - 2019

lol no problem. @MSena I don’t get hung up on brands, I go by my test results and physical symptoms. I’ve been taking the cheapo generic Amazon brand gummies, Solimo, since they came out and they seem to work just as well or better than other brands I’ve tried. (Woman’s multi, D3, and B12) And they are absolutely delicious. As for probiotics... there are obvious physical symptoms that occur if one doesn’t work well enough for me. So that’s easy for me to decide on. I do my own cooking so I already get high levels of spices like turmeric and garlic etc in my diet, don’t need those in my multi or as additional supplements. I have good skin and no problems with my hair or nails, so I must be doing something right. My personal philosophy is less is more. It’s really such an individual thing, but that is my routine. 😀

Re: Empties - 2019

@Weetart I, too, advocate the "less is more." And thank you for sharing your routine & the lovely suggestions! I'll definitely look into those Solimo gummies once I finish up my Culturelle. They look delicious.

I don't get obvious results with my pills so there's no way of knowing if they're truly doing me some good, but to echo you, my hair and skin are doing okay so may they are! 

Re: Empties - 2019

@Weetart they also contain less active cultures than the Culturelle.

Re: Empties - 2019

That's interesting @CookieGirl1 Huh, I guess the cultures in align just agree with my personal gut more.

Re: Empties - 2019

Right there with you on the Mamonde oil cleanser unfortunately, @MSena. I've adored some of their products so I was really hoping to like that better, but I didn't think it was too great and may even have broken me out slightly.

Re: Empties - 2019

@quspork Sadly, me too; it broke me out. That's exactly what I wrote in my blog 😞 

I could have withstood the overwhelming rose scent but not the odd pimples coming to roost in places they shouldn't (nose. I usually never get pimples on my nose). 

great lineup of empties! @MSena
