Love It Or Leave It? Empties #3 – Body, Hair, and Makeup

As promised, here is part two of my empties featuring body, hair, and makeup. You can find part one here, featuring a ton of skin care products.


Bath & Body

Avon Skin So Soft Fusions Dual Softening Body Moisturizer (discontinued)

Full Size: 8.4 fl oz, $5.99
Scent: Soft & Sensual
Verdict: Like it

This is a really nice moisturizer that, unfortunately, has been discontinued. I really liked the texture and it moisturized extremely well.

Cutex Strengthening Nail Polish Remover

Full Size: 6 fl oz, $2.69
Verdict: Like it

There isn’t really much to say about this. It’s nail polish remover. It removes nail polish. I have tried different price ranges in nail polish removers but I haven’t really found a difference between any of them so this one is just as good as any other.

Hair Care

TIGI Bed Head Oh Bee Hive! Matte Dry Shampoo

Full Size: 5 oz, $18.98
Verdict: Leave it

I really couldn’t get over the smell of this dry shampoo. It’s so strong and sweet. I had to use it very sparingly, otherwise the smell would linger all day and give me a headache. It worked pretty well as a dry shampoo, though, without leaving a white residue. If you can get over the smell then this is actually quite a decent product.

Pureology Purify Shampoo

Full Size: 8.5 fl oz, $29
Verdict: Leave it

Another product where I didn’t enjoy the scent. It’s quite herbal-y and masculine. It’s a good clarifying shampoo. I might purchase it again if I can’t find a clarifying shampoo that smells better but for now I’m going to try other products.

Bumble & bumble Thickening Hairspray

Full Size: 8 fl oz, $28
Verdict: Leave it

This did an ok job at thickening but didn’t really help to lift my roots. I prefer the Living Proof Full Thickening Creme for thickening.

Living Proof Full Thickening Cream

Full Size: 1.8 fl oz, $15
Verdict: Love it

I love this product. It gives my hair texture, thickening it, and giving it more volume. I already purchased the full size.

Living Proof – Full Shampoo

Full Size: 8 fl oz, $24
Verdict: Like it

This shampoo does a good job at given my hair some volume. I only wish it was more nourishing but I guess that’s the trade-off for actually seeing volumizing results. I purchased a full size of this a while back.

Living Proof – Prime Style Extender

Full Size: 5 oz, $20
Verdict: Like it

See my full review here. I still like it and already purchased the full size.


Benefit Cosmetics – ‘Hello Flawless!’ Oxygen Wow Liquid Foundation

Shade: I’m pure 4 sure – Ivory
Full Size: 1 fl oz, $36
Verdict: Like it

This foundation provides great coverage without being heavy or greasy. It gives my skin a nice glow. The ivory shade is a bit darker than I would’ve expected but it works well for me during the summer. If your skin is on the pale side you may want to test this foundation in stores first. I purchased the full size after finishing this tiny sample.
