Textureful

For Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray

hair

I loved the scent, but it is just the same out of all the texturizers I have bought and tried. They have all been good to me. I would not repurchase this spray. It didn’t do something amazing that the others didn’t. It performed fine for a texturizer. It made my hair look tousled, but not sticky or crunchy. I really enjoyed it. The price tag is too much for a texturizing product. The drugstore ones are just as good, specifically the Tresemme texturizing or finishing spray. I forget how they word it on their product. The scent does not justify the price either. I would buy another travel sized one if it was under $10. The travel size lasts me about 3 months of use, because I don’t use it everyday after a shower.

April Empties 2017

I know I’m about two days early for my monthly empties, but I am ready to empty my wicker basket and start collecting for May, my birthday month. I am hoping to go through more beauty products next month, since it is my birthday month. I will probably be wearing more makeup anyway. I also have EXCITING news on my Pan That Pallet progress, at least exciting for me. LOL. This was a lighter month with less empties, but I am happy that I finished off two makeup products. I also have three more on their last legs, so I am hoping to have 5 or more makeup empties in May. I have so many update posts to write, but I love being busy on my blog. I might have a May Reads post this month, because I made a promise to myself to read an hour on Saturday and Sunday. I hope that I can keep that promise. I’ll be back to reading more once I finish my last class for my Associates Degree in Information Technology.

It was a slow month with a few product multiples, but I really enjoyed using what I have up. I currently have a lotion on its last legs and I think I might use another mini lotion after I use this one up. I never realized how much I really had before I did my collection videos. I knew that I had a lot, but it really puts it in perspective. I know how much I can use up and I strive to enjoy using up my stuff everyday. I don’t want to be the girl with 20 lotion backups anymore. I think I can have a few in back-stock once I use up what I have. Naturally, when I go B&BW shopping, I will be shopping the annual sale and the buy 3, get 3 free sale. Naturally, I will have multiples of products, but it won’t bother me. I’m not going to buy more on top of that. It keeps the back-stock reasonable when you just buy once. Once I run out of something, I’ll do another haul when I can, but I’m really loving my mindset right now. Very zen and minimalistic. I really love minimalism. I got my closet down so much that now, I can go out and do a clothing haul to buy pieces I will love and that will last. I don’t want to support consumerism anymore.

June Birchbox

I love the watercolor pastel box this month! It is very pretty and another one that I will be saving. I’ll be going through my make up collection to purge a few things. Is anyone interested in seeing that? I think I’m going to take pictures and do a post on it. I’ll probably bring it to work for a few friends to pick over. Danielle, when I do the post and you definitely want some of it, let me know and I’ll set it aside for you. 🙂

Anyways, here’s my June box, which I’ll let you know now I LOVE it.

Texturizing spray

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray, 1 oz for around $5 USD

I love texturizing sprays, which I find are different from dry shampoos. I think they work better than dry shampoos. Even though, they technically are dry shampoo, I think they are a hybrid of some sort. I’m currently using Rusk texturizing spray, but I cannot wait to use this one as well. I see it all over Youtube, so I am happy to have my hands on this product. It will go into my beauty bin for now to use when I use up the Rusk.

Marcelle BB Cream in Golden Glow, 7 ml for $4.20 USD

This is an okay size to sample. I wish it was bigger though. This only has enough for two or three face applications. I like the glow that it gives the skin, but I would definitely powder afterwards. I powder after apply sunscreen. I like being glowy, not shiny/greasy looking. This stuff is expensive, so I don’t think I’ll be buying it anytime soon.

Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask, 1 oz for $4.50 USD

As you can see by the picture on the right, this product is a welcome repeat offender. I love that it is now in a squeeze tube, which makes the product easier to use. This tube is enough for two to three masks for my hair. I do a mask about once a month, but now that I bleached it, I think I’ll do it once every week or so. This could be in July empties. I like this product and the scent. I won’t be buying it though.

Cleanser

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, 1 oz & 1 cloth for $11.32 USD

I’m so excited to be receiving these two products in my Birchbox. The potential of getting this product in my box is what made me sign up for it in the first place and now, I am finally sampling it. It is a brilliant moment for me. If I really liked this product, I could see this replacing my GlamGlow cleanser. Now, I just have to sample Emma Hardy’s Cleansing Balm. Anyone else love sampling highend products?! It’s an addiction of mine.

Benefit Gimme Brow Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel in 1, 1 g for $8 USD

This was my chosen sample this month. It is also my first brow product EVER. Yeah, I never got on that train. I’m excited to try this product. I need to get my eyebrows threaded first. I’m hoping to get it done next weekend. This seems like a great product and I love trying out new makeup.

That’s my box this month!

With Love,

Selena
