Hair oil product with LED accelerator Colour sustain shampoo Elixir Ultime hair

I can't believe its April already! As a new month begins, I have suddenly run out of some essentials so I thought I would post my empties and whether I will be repurchasing or not! I have included some skincare, haircare and general grooming products. Luckily I haven't run out of any makeup pieces as I have been stocking up on mascaras and powders just in case of emergency ;)
Hair oil product with LED
Here are my empties! L-R Dermalogica soothing eye makeup remover, Blanx white shock toothpaste with LED accelerator, Mitchum advanced control deodorant stick, Xen Tan dark lotion, Ojon Colour sustain shampoo, Kerastase Elixir Ultime hair oil.

I have had some of these over a year whilst others have been recent finds so here is a run down of what I won't be repurchasing and why!

Mitchum advanced control - Again this is not a bad product by any means but running around at work I was not kept completely dry with this product so I am still on the hunt for the perfect deodorant! The mitchum brand has impressed me more than most others though so I may try another product from the same range and see how I get on with it. I do like the fact that the cream is hydrating and dries instantly but will be trying other deodorants before repurchasing this.

Dermalogica soothing eyemakeup remover - I am a Dermalogica fanatic and most of my current skincare routine contains these fabulous products. So I thought I would give this remover a try. However it is the only product of theirs I would not repurchase. It is not a bad makeup remover, it simply doesn't removed the amount of makeup I wear! For work I am often sporting a dark smokey eye and this remover just doesn't have the power to budge dark colours and gel eyeliners but for someone who wears more natural eye makeup this is a lovely gentle remover. However I will be sticking to removers which are more specifically geared towards long wearing makeup products.

Ojon colour sustain shampoo - The conditioner of this range is still going strong however as always the shampoo has run out quicker. The size of this product is fantastic as I can simply keep it in the shower and not worry about when its going to run out! However that day has finally come and even though I have enjoyed this product I am unsure as to whether I will buy it again. I love trying new products so for me to repurchase a hair product I have to truly fall in love with it and this didn't happen with this shampoo. Its a lovely rich texture with an appealing smell however for my hair (fine and slightly oily at roots) it didn't give me enough body. I would highly recommend it for thicker drier hair types which have been coloured though.

Blanx White shock with LED accelerator - I was sent this toothpaste by Blanx to try and despite my scepticism of the LED, I was pleasantly impressed by this product! I love having a bright smile and after recently getting my teeth whitened at the Pro Beauty show, I wanted to keep up that white look to my teeth and this has certainly done that! It doesn't come with a colour chart but I can see that my teeth are a great shade and when I wear my favourite orange red lipstick they look gleaming! The LED light attachment activates the whitening agent in the toothpaste and even though it looks like a gimmick it seems to really work. I would repurchase this.

Kerastase Elixir Ultime hair oil - I love this hair oil! I have since tried L'oreal mythic oil and whilst that is a beautiful product there is something special about this one that makes me want to repurchase despite the higher price tag! The smell alone is enough to tempt me into buying again! The texture is rich but not greasy and it makes brushing and drying the hair so much easier. My hair always feel softer after blow drying when I use this and it now comes in coloured hair versions so I may try one of those too. A must have for anyone who likes to treat their hair!

Xen Tan dark lotion - One of my all time favourites tans, I already have a back up ready to use. This tan gives a natural golden looking colour so even though I tend to use slightly darker tans for nights out this is the perfect everyday colour and lasts well on the skin. It is hydrating too so I get less flaking and patchiness. The colour guide is quite dark but when you wash it off in the morning you are left with a golden holiday colour. This tan will always have a place in my collection.

What have you run out of this month and are you rushing out to buy more?

Handbag Answer from the Style Coach

Question came in: I have a Juicy bag with torn piping. I have had a really hard time trying to get it fixed. Nordstrom said that they can't do it and all the leather repair places here in Salt Lake say they can't do it. Artbag.com wants $150 to repair it, but it's only a $200 bag. The article says it's easy to do. Where can I get it fixed without breaking the bank?Answer: I've done some investigating on this one. Find a reputable shoe repair place and ask them, they often do handbag work and are really good at leather and detail work. Additionally, you can ask where Nordstrom or Saks (depends on where you live) send their bags for repair, and go there yourself. Nordstrom is probably quoting you so much because they don't want to do it and accept the liability of it not turning out perfectly. Be open to a creative solution from your repair place of choice.Another option is to take a picture of the bag and send it to someone pretty senior at Juicy and see if they…
