Products I've Used Up | Empties #1

Hey lovelies,

Being the dedicated blogger that I am (or at least am trying to be), I have been saving all of the empty products pictured below for several months now so that I could finally write up my first ever "empties" post.  I have always enjoyed reading these types of posts myself, so hopefully you guys will enjoy reading this post too. :)

KMS California Hair Play Makeover Spray - RRP $28.95
The KMS California Hair Play Makeover Spray is basically a fancy product name for a dry shampoo, and this was the first dry shampoo that I ever tried back when my hair was super oily.  I had high expectations for this dry shampoo as it was given to me by my best friend who is a professional hairdresser, and even though she warned me beforehand that most dry shampoo's don't tend to work, I still believed that this was going to be the miracle product that I had been searching for.  Sadly this product did very little for my hair and left me feeling incredibly underwhelmed
Would I repurchase? No.

Juuce Shock Treatment - RRP $21.95
The Juuce Shock Treatment is marketed as being a 3-5 minute deep conditioning treatment for dry, coloured hair that is meant to replace the normal step of conditioning once or twice a week.  I used this treatment on my hair every 2nd wash for 3-4 months, and although it made my hair feel soft while it was still damp, my hair quickly became dry, brittle and unmanageable within minutes of beginning to air dry.
Would I repurchase? No.

Nak Heatbeat Protective Shampoo & Conditioner - RRP $23.95 each
I first started using the Nak Heatbeat Protective Shampoo and Conditioner together 6 months ago after going through a terrible stage of having oily roots just hours after washing.  Going by the name and description of these products I had zero expectations of them fixing up this problem, but they did!  I don't know what it is about the formulation of these two products but for the 5 months that they lasted me my hair not only felt healthy and manageable without being too oily/too dry, but I was also able to air dry my hair in under an hour.
Would I repurchase? Yes.

Nak Mask Treatment - RRP $21.95
After finishing up the Juuce Shock Treatment I started using the Nak Mask Treatment every 2nd wash alongside the Nak Heat Beat Shampoo, in the exact same way that I was originally using the Juuce Shock Treatment. Unlike the Juuce Shock Treatment however, this one lasted me for 4-5 months and actually left my hair feeling softer for a few hours after rinsing.
Would I repurchase? Yes, but not for that price.

Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Foaming Scrub - RRP $14.95
I recently finished up my 6th or 7th tube of this delightfulness, and as I have mentioned before in previous blog posts, it's a firm beauty favourite of mine.  Not only does this foaming scrub smell amazing, but it leaves my skin feeling fresh, clean and smooth!
Would I repurchase? Definitely!  :)

Have you guys ever tried any of these products before? What were your thoughts?
