***Formally the Gummy Vision blog***

I'm a lady in her 40's who loves her beauty products! No makeup makeup is my game & pretty packaging gets me every time, though I'm willing to forgive that with skincare (but only if the product is effective!). 

I'm a Stewardess who prefers quiet spaces and places, but I could talk all beauty all the time! Please enjoy your visit!

Empties: March 2015

Thought I would start showing you my Empties in a slightly different order...the first picture is of products not mentioned on the blog before.

***All items purchased by me, received as a gwp or received as a sample with purchase. Links are to previous blog posts. 

Empties: March 2015 -

Products not mentioned on the blog before: 

Pantene Pro-V Miracle Repairing Shampoo and Conditioner (sample) - I'm pretty darn sure this didn't erase 6 months of damage in this single use. I mean...c'mon...seems like a pretty ridiculous claim. That said, it actually left my hair soft and moisturized. If I didn't have other shampoos and stuff already on hand, I might be willing to buy the full size. Nice, but not amazing. 

R+Co Bel Air Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner (sample) - Same with this one...nice but not amazing. And at this price point ($24/bottle) it needs to be REALLY REALLY good, so I probably will not be purchasing the full size. 

Garden of Wisdom Sesame Oil (deluxe sample) - I added it to my CeraVe and it added a nice little oomph to my CeraVe Moisturizing Cream, but I didn't try it on my face. Probably won't be purchasing the full size anytime soon. 

Diptyque Eau Rose Emulsion Hand Lotion (sample) - Smelled good, but I prefer something heartier for my hands. Will not be purchasing the full size. 

Empties: March 2015 -

Glycolix Elite Fortified Cream - Review HERE. I've already started another tub, and have another on backup!

Glycolix Elite Treatment Pads 15% - Review HERE. These landed in my 2014 Skincare Favorites, and I've since moved onto the stronger 20% pads. I'm seeing an even greater difference!

LUSH So White Shower Gel - Absolutely LOVE how this smells!!! Will be purchasing again when it comes back later in the year. 

Living Proof Flex Shaping Hairspray - By now this is a staple product! Smells great, and doesn't leave flakes when I brush through it. 

Klorane Dry Shampoo - Staple product. So far it's the best dry shampoo I've tried! 

Aquaphor - Another staple product seen often in Empties posts!

NUDE Skincare Perfect Cleanse Omega Cleansing Jelly (sample) - Review HERE. Still love this, but I've decided to hold off a bit on repurchasing another full size...I seem to be going through it pretty quickly and I'm going to go back to my DIY cleansing oil to save a little $ for awhile. 

L'Occitane Shower Oil - Love this stuff (hydrating with a nice, light scent) and I finally purchased a full size! It's especially great to shave with! 

Empties: March 2015 -

Purged items:

Aveda Brilliant Damage Control, Aveda Damage Remedy Hair Repair and Aveda Smooth Infusion Style Prep Smoother - These are all very nice products (and smell goooooooood!!!), but I've since found hair products that are more effective. 

Fekkai Blowout Hair Refresher Dry Shampoo - Terrible. Made my hair look even worse than before applying it. 

Replenix Ultra Sheer Sunscreen SPF50 - Review HERE. Didn't suit me, and it expired before I got a chance to use it up on my body. 

Shu Uemura High Performance Balancing Cleansing Oil - The only thing I liked about this is that it removed everything. What I couldn't stand is how it felt...too smooth, as though it's been overly refined. I guess I'm just used to the texture of regular face oils, my DIY oil cleanser and some other oil cleanser such as Tatcha, which are a little more dense and feel more comfortable to me. Pure personal preference!
