Lena Talks Beauty Empties - August and September

Empties: August & September

Time has got away on me – my formerly monthly empties posts have now seemed to become every second month! This post is a bit of a long one, so I better get cracking. I finished 15 products, 12 of them full size (including 2 single-use masks), and 3 mini/sample sized. The products range across haircare, skincare, body products, makeup, and nails. Hair Batiste Dry Shampoo – Eden (honeysuckle & sugarmelon) I don’t remember the last time I wrote an empties post and it didn’t include a can of Batiste dry shampoo. This fragrance was amazing, my favourite of them all. Repurchase? Already have Olaplex Hair Perfector I’ve been using Olaplex for about the last year, and it was great at rehabbing my damaged hair.

Doesn’t seem really neccessary at the moment, especially not at $50 for a bottle I get maybe 5 uses from. Repurchase?

January and February 2017 empties

It’s time for another empties post! I didn’t use many products up during January so decided to make it a combined affair with February. Then everything seemed to run out all at once! I’ve been really trying to finish one product before opening another but we all know how hard that is. I have finished skin, hair, body, makeup, and nail items, so at least one from each of the main categories that I blog about. Some are even full size! Now, without further ado, let’s get stuck in. I’ll be linking in the titles to where I have reviewed the products previously.

Is Olaplex worth the hype - Lena Talks Beauty

Is Olaplex worth the hype? My review of Olaplex

Olaplex has been the talk of the hair world for the last couple of years, it’s been proclaimed as hair magic. It’s what let Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner go from brunette to blonde in one day with minimal damage. I had Olaplex used in my last hair colouring session, and now I’m here to discuss the big question. Is Olaplex worth the hype? I’ve also done some research about what Olaplex is, and how it works, since it is a bit confusing.
