Product Empties #2: Delaney Eye Cream, Argan Oil Body Butter, Happy Hippy, HealthySexyHair Leave-in Coditioner, and More

Round two of products I used up. I apologize for the stock photos, I accidentally toss products and forget to a take a picture of them for you guys. Unfortunately, I don't have room in my tiny apartment to stockpile all my empties.

Delaney Grape Seed Rejuvenating Eye Cream
What I Think: I got this as a sample from Beauty Bar and absolutely loved it. It is the only eye product that worked on my dark circles and it worked MIRACLES! It was so good, I passed it on to my mother to try as well since we both suffer from genetic dark circles.  The eye cream is pretty pricey. A tiny bottle costs around $100, but I think it is worth it for how well it works on my eyes.
Repurchase: Yes

The Body Shop Argan Oil Body Butter $20
What I Think: After struggling with horrible dry skin this winter, I went on a hunt to find some relief. This body butter worked wonders to turn my dry skin around and make it soft and supple. The smell is indescribable. I would open this tub during the day sometimes just to get a whiff of the scent which lasts at least a few hours on the body.
Repurchase: Definitely!

The Happy Hippy Shower Gel from Lush
What I Think: I loved every time I took a shower with this shower gel. It smells of grapefruit and I specifically bought it at the time because I wanted a shower gel that smelled of grapefruit. This was also the first product that introduced me to Lush Cosmetics.
Repurchase: Yes, but I actually won't be buying more since there are so many other shower gels I want to try.

HealthySexyHair's Leave in Conditioner
What I Think: This was a huge favorite of mine when I tried it. I don't really try fancy hair products on my hair. My hair is in great shape (those Desi genes) and usually fancy hair care products don't really do anything to my hair that a drugstore product can do. With that being said, this increased the shine and overall health of my hair during a period when I was subjecting my hair to a lot of heat styling.
Repurchase: Yes. The new bottle is already a staple in my bathroom.

Victoria Secret's Mango Temptation Body Scrub
What I Think: I loved this scent and bought every product in this line when the scent first came out. I was bored with all of my other VS staple scents at the time. Like all VS scrubs, it gets the all-over-body-scrub/exfoliation job done. However, these days I actually like a deeper scrub so this product doesn't cut it. Also I hate the way VS packages their scrub products. I like tubs of product so i can scoop out the product. The squeeze nozzle on these bottles sometimes gets clogged with dry crusty scrub particles making it harder to get product as time goes on.
Repurchase: No.

Mini Travel Version of Mary Kay Velocity Facial Cleanser
What I Think: I used this as a teen when I first got into makeup and having a daily cleansing routine. The screwable cap on the mini version leaks during air travel so you lose a lot of product there. Also it tends to get soapy cleanser all over your other makeup products that are packed in the same bag when it leaks. The last think I want to do while traveling is clean spills.
Repurchase: No due to design and there are so many better cleansers on the market.


  1. These are very inspiring – reminds me again that i must sort out something a bit more special for my own blog! I particularly like Brian jeremys design. Good post, thanks. numbing spray tattoo


  2. Nice review. A very good and effective product and safe to use. I've been looking for a product like this. I bought a product called Neogen Wine Pads which is similar to this product that you reviewed. Thanks for the review.
