I decided to start a new series called “Empty’s” a couple months ago. My thoughts were that it’s helpful to revisit an item after it’s been used long term and you decide whether to repurchase it. Or not.
You can find my last post here: Empty’s – May 2022
Here are the items in my Empty’s bin today:
Virtue Recovery Shampoo and Conditioner
I love Jennifer Garner and was very much influenced when she started posting about Virtue products. After using Olaplex for years, I decided to give Virtue a try and I ordered the sample sizes of the Virtue Recovery Shampoo (2.0 oz) and the Virtue Recovery Conditioner (2.0 oz). While there’s nothing really wrong with either product and they both smell quite nice, they were both just… fine. Considering the 8 0z version of the shampoo costs $40, I’m going to need more than ‘fine’ to repurchase this! I won’t be repurchasing either the shampoo or conditioner and sticking with Olaplex.
Marrakesh Oil – Argan & Hemp Oil Therapy Hair Styling Elixir
I had to look back in my blog archives to figure out when I received this oil in a previous FabFitFun box and was shocked that it was back in 2016 and I started using it in early 2017. This one bottle lasted me 5+ years?! After showering, I use one pump of this oil, rub it between my hands and then smooth it through my hair from the mid-sections to the ends. It makes my hair silky soft without looking greasy at all. On beach days, I add a couple pumps to my ponytail to keep it protected from the salty air. I actually received a back-up bottle a couple years ago and pulled it out as soon as this one was finished. I will certainly be re-buying this again in the future… which should be around 2027!
