July-Running on Empty

Hey dolls.  Here is what I ran out of in July:
Only eight products this month.  Mostly shower stuff.  

Tresemme Thermal Recovery Hair Conditioner 
 I pulled this out because I noticed that my ends were getting pretty frizzy.  Maybe time for a trim?  I can't say that I have noticed a drastic improvement but I would like to think that it's been helping. I have this in the shampoo too. 

Repurchase/Replace?  Replaced in my shower with a Pantene conditioner at the moment.

Suave Naturals Body Wash in Wild Cherry Blossom
 I use body washes more in the summer than in the colder months.  This one lathers really nicely and smells great, though the smell doesn't really linger after the shower.  It is cheap too. 

Repurchase/Replace?  I have more of these Suave body washes in my stash, but I replaced this one in my shower with my Ulta body wash that I got for free last year.

St. Ive's Apricot Scrub
 Yum.  I love this stuff.  I also keep this in my shower and use it every night.  I love how it exfoliates.  Those with sensitive skin might find this too harsh for them.  For me, it's perfect.  I use a dime-sized amount and after I scrub my face, I also make sure to exfoliate my neck and chest area with it too. 

Repurchase/Replace?  Yes!  I already purchased a back up and I have replaced it in my shower already.

 Proactive Solutions Revitalizing Toner
 I use this toner every night after I get out of the shower.  I add a little bit to a cotton pad and just wipe all over my face.  I like how gentle it is, even though the witch hazel in the toner puts me off a little.   

Repurchase/Replace?  I have a couple more bottles of this to go through yet, but I wanted to try my theBalm cucumber toner for a bit so I replaced it with that. 

ELF Makeup Mist &Set
 I bought this last summer and I only recently pulled it out again after purchasing my MAC Fix +.  I know that some beauty bloggers swear on their MAC Fix+, but I really didn't notice a difference.  Therefore I pulled out this ELF one to see how it compares.  At this point, I really don't know.  My skin is just too oily to really reap any benefits from either of these. 

Repurchase/Replace?  I'm not sure.  I don't really see how this benefits my makeup.   

L'Oreal Color Riche Balm in Caramel Comfort
  I have reviewed this lip color already here, so I'm not saying much more about it.  I had left it in my car so that I would have to use it as a lip balm over the winter and spring.   

Repurchase/Replace?  No. I am not a fan of the formula. 

CoverGirl Shadow Single in Mink
 You guys already know that I am a fan of this shadow.  I love it.  

Repurchase/Replace?  Yes, I had bought two backups of this last time Walgreens had a sale so I replaced it in my daily makeup bag already.

Urban Decay Primer Potion (depotted)
This is my UDPP which I depotted here.  It has unfortunately dried out on me, so I am tossing it out.

Repurchase/Replace?  Yes.  I have a good amount of these in my stash and they seriously last forever.  I did replace it with my $1 Elf Primer instead though in an effort to use that up first.

What did you run out of this month?  Do tell! 


  1. I have a toner from the Balm... it's their white tea one for dry skin. I love it! I use it very sparingly because I don't want to run out haha! The only things I have used up this month are contact solutions and shampoo/conditioner... still working on a lot of my skin care and shower products. They just seem to accumulate too quickly haha!
