Can you believe it’s already December?!Where has the time gone?
It’s time for my November empties!

First up is…….
20131130_072912
Hypnotic Poison by Dior.
My FAVORITE perfume!  I can not go without this perfume.  Once I ran out, I went and bought me a new bottle.  This is my signature/holy grail perfume.  It retails for $98 for a 3.4 oz’s.  It’s so worth it!
If you haven’t already tested this out yet, next time you see it at the counter, you must give it a go and let me know what you think.

It’s described as:
Mysterious and mesmerizing, extravagant and bewitching, Hypnotic Poison is a magic potion for modern times. Audacious and profoundly feminine, the fragrance is an unsettling harmony, a fusion of contrasting olfactory facets.

Notes:
Bitter Almond, Caraway Spice, Sambac Jasmine, Cinnamon, Tuberose, Vanilla, Musk, Mosses, Jucarunda Wood.
Style:
Hypnotizing. Extravagant. Bewitching.

Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment 4.2 fl oz

I received a sample in one of my Ipsy monthly beauty bags a few months back and fell in love with it ever since.
It came at a perfect time too.  I just had my naturally dark filipina hair dyed and highlighted to honey blond/light brown.  So, naturally I needed to make sure I take care of my hair and this is perfect for my long strands.

It’s described as:

Healing Oil Treatment is a therapeutic hair oil perfect for all hair types and is especially beneficial to dry, damaged hair.

  • Intense nourishment for tangle & frizz free hair
  • Hair that is ultra-smooth, manageable & shiny
  • Natural UV protection extends the life of color treatments
  • Reduced drying time by an amazing 40-50%The last place I purchased this was at CVS and at that time they were having a Buy One Get One for half off.  You can also get them at the Macadamia website and at Target.
    FYI, at Target they are having the Buy One Get One for 50% off NOW!

Olay Silk Whimsy Cleansing Body Wash with Rose Extract & Almond Oil 700 ml’s
I love this stuff!  The fragrance and silkiness is heavenly in a nice warm bath or shower.

It’s described as:
Awaken your senses with the deep cleansing and fresh scents of Olay Cleansing Body Wash. Unlike regular soap, Olay Cleansing Body Wash won’t dry your skin, leaving it fresh, beautiful, and more hydrated. Bring home specialty-brand indulgence at half the price* with Olay Cleansing Body Wash.
You can snatch yours up from pretty much any drug store.

For my ever so changing hair needs…
Clear Scalp & Hair Therapy Complete Care Anti-Dandruff Shampoo
For some reason, every now and again my hair goes through a strange stage when I literally feel like my scalp is like a snake shedding it’s skin.  It’s not the normal dandruff stuff, its big chunks of my scalp and it’s soooo embarrassing!
One of my life-long bestest friends Veronica from MyCoupoiningLife suggested I go out and get this, and of course she had a coupon for me to save some money.
I went out and purchased it and have used it ever since.
It retails around $5 and you can normally always find a coupon to save some money.

It’s described as:
Specially formulated to deeply nourish and help eliminate dandruff symptoms, while leaving hair strong & beautiful. Made with Nutrium 10™, an advanced moisture complex of vitamins and nutrients.

Organix Hydrating Macadamia Oil Hair Conditioner

I’ve had this for a while because I like to switch up my hair care needs.  Macadamia Oil is the big trend when it comes to hair care and this was an inexpensive conditioner.  I really didn’t notice a difference in my hair from using this but I didn’t want to just throw it away and waste my money.
It’s described as:
Drench your strands in an ultra-moisturizing luxurious conditioner infused with nutrient rich macadamia oil to instantly hydrate and smooth parched, fry hair while exotic sugar cane extract and bamboo extract soften and mend split ends for a luscious, vibrant mane with brilliant shine.

Skintimate Moisturizing Shaving cream Extra Gentle

I absolutely LOVE this for shaving my legs.
Of course with my life-long Bestie Veronica at MyCouponingLife, she turned me onto this too.  She always has coupons for this.
It makes my legs feel so soft and smooth after I shave.  I seriously can’t help but feel on my legs after I get out of the shower or bath.
It’s infused with Vitamin E & Soy, but really all I care about is how my legs feel afterwards.
It’s a MUST BUY.

Loreal Elnett Satin Extra Strong Hold Hairspray

This extra strong hairspray has a micro-diffusion technology humidity protection formula which is a must for me being that I live in the capital state of humidity.  It holds strong yet it doesn’t flake out with those white little flakes everywhere.

It’s described as:

Elnett Satin is the legendary hairspray of choice for red carpet events and cover photo shoots. Its micro-diffuser spray offers a clean, soft shiny finish. So fine, it disappears at the stroke of a brush. So strong, its hold lasts all day.

Garnier Mosture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream
(Normal/Combo Skin)

This is a refreshing moisturizer face gel-cream that has a light cooling cucumber scent.  I used this throughout the summer and now.  I use it after I wash my face in the morning and before bed.
It just soaks into your skin leaving a lovely scent.  It locks in moisture and is Oil Free.  Which is what I need for my combo skin type.

bigsexyhair Weather Proof hair spray

I received this in one of my previous Ipsy monthly beauty bags.
Just like my Loreal Elnett Satin hairspray, this did not disappoint.  So, this is another hairspray that is on my MUST HAVE list.

It’s described as:

A high-performance humidity resistant spray that contains polymers that, when sprayed on hair, create a shield of protection against humidity. It is perfect for keeping blowouts, updo’s and curls from collapsing due to climate conditions. This spray is the last step before walking out the door.

Neutrogena Shampoo anti-residue formula

I use this weekly to get all of the leftover hair product residue out of my hair.
My hair feels so light after I use this.
I also had my 13-year-old daughter use this.  She is constantly using tons of products in her hair.
Prior to me making her use this, when she flat ironed her hair in her room, I could literally smell all the products in her hair burn throughout the house.  I don’t even know how much left over products was in her hair.
I was so fed up with the nasty burning smell, I made her jump in the shower one day and had her use this.
When she finished in the shower, she was a new child!  When she dried her hair and straightened it, she couldn’t stop flipping her hair everywhere!  I didn’t even notice that she was flat ironing her hair because I couldn’t smell that nasty scent.
I am so grateful for this product!  She now uses it weekly.

Last but not least…..

U by kotex sleek tampons

Didn’t see this one coming, did ya.
Now all child-bearing aged females goes through the monthly.
I love how these are very protective and saves us from those ever so embarrassing moments.  They are super cute and small enough to tote around in your purse, pocket, or even in your evening clutch if you’re out on the town.

Well Dolls, this wraps up my November Empties.

As Always, Thank You for stopping by and reading my posts.  I hope you continue too and Share the Love with your friends and family.

Ulta Haul
Ulta Haul

Does anyone else feel like a kid in a candy store when they enter the Ulta store??

I know I do!!

This was my 1st time at Ulta and I literally was in there for 2 hours. I have always shopped at Sephora or MAC stores to get my beauty goodies but on this trip I finally stepped into Makeup heaven.

I kept receiving their advertisements and saw some things that I had my eyes on so I got dressed, got in my truck, and went SHOPPING!

The things I scored in this trip were: Urban Decay’s Naked 2 palette, EOS lemon drop lip balm, Urban Decay’s trio 24/7 eyeliners, Pssst dry shampoo, TRESemme thermal creations spray, a ULTA nail polish that was on SALE for $0.99 in the color: Purple Haze, Benefits They’re Real mascara, NYX butter gloss in Creme Brulee, and a baby lips.

All in all, I’m very satisfied with my purchases. Not bad for my first trip there.

Do you remember your 1st trip to Ulta?

Share your experience and what your 1st purchase was.

Cant wait to hear all of your comments!
