I love seeing other peoples empties! So I decided to make a board where people could post pictures of their empties, or just tell us about them! I'd also be interested in knowing whether you're repurchasing anything or not.
Not the best month for me…..
Aussie Hair insurance- I've gone through at least 5 bottles of this stuff, however I'm interested in trying other products. It's a 10 is next. if I don't find something better, then I'll definitely go back to this.
Clean & Clear Morning Burst Facial Cleanser-- While this does nothing special for my face, I've been using it for years. I love the smell of it. It does sort of wake me up in the morning. However, I am getting into more "adult' skin care. I bought both of the Sephora Favorites Skin care sets so I can experiment with some new products.
Victoria's Secret Pink Softening foot cream-- This was a very good foot cream. It smelled very minty which I liked and had a cooling effect. The shea butter helped to keep my feet soft. I loved putting this on after a long 12 hour shift.
Would NOT repurchase
Nivea A kiss of Shimmer--I hated this stuff. It smelled bad and tasted bad. It felt good on the lips and did hold some moisture, but I felt like a disco ball. I was expecting a little bit of shimmer, not a ton of glitter. I like all of Nivea products, but this one just didn't cut it for me. I only used it 5 times and just couldn't force myself to use it anymore. So this is actual trash.
Bare Minerals Naturally Luminous Firming Eye Treatment-- Got this in a gift with purchase. Nothing fantastic. It was moisturizing, but I don't feel like it did anything fantastic as far as brightening or firming. Just a basic eye cream. I'm on to Tarte C-Brightener next
Orofluido Hair serum-- another product that wasn't mind blowing. It was a hair serum and did it's job. It didn't blow my mind. I think I got this from a birch box or another beauty box. It was very thick which I didn't like either. On to the next!
Hopefully next month I'll have some higher end products and MORE products. Just not a very productive month for me this month. I think I bounced around to much and didn't focus on finishing stuff up :/
My friend bought the Nivea A Kiss of Shimmer the other day. She put it on to try it and asked me how it looked (without seeing herself). Oh boy. It's pretty bad! Disco ball sums it up nicely. Good thing it wasn't too pricy. I told her to throw it away instantly lol
Good luck on your empties for February, NurseCupcake!
Oh Thank you! I always feel guilty throwing away products instead of using them up, even if I hate them, but this one. I just couldn't do it! I feel much better tossing it now that I have someone who agrees with me!

I love this thread! Also trying to do empties with a twist to figure out my chic week budget! I'me going to have to do LOTS better in February , March and April!
Soap &glory butter yourself- I love this and will buy it again! This was my 3rd jar.
Bonacure moisture kick- it was ok for light moisture but not really right for my hair. Would be great for someone with fine hair!
L'occitane Amande supple skin oil- I wanted to love this but I wasn't impressed at all. Shame because I love the shower oil!
Listerine whitening rinse- this stuff was a joke.
maybelline full & soft mascara- my HG for 17 years. Keep back ups on hand!
Caudalie divine oil sample- meh. Not inspired to go out and buy it.
Korres wild rose setting powder- this is my second pot of this and I bought all I could get my mitts on when I heard Korres color is going away.
Go Smile Speed whitening kit- AWESOME! Would definitely purchase again!
Re: Empties[ Edited ]
Hooray for Empties Challenges I think this is the most I've used up in a month!
Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer
GlamGlow Tinglexfoliate Mask (black)
Maybelline Fresh Express Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Shower Gel
Benefit Total Moisture - this one surprised me. I really was expecting to hate it but it was so thick and moisturizing and smelled amaaazing. My sensitive skin loved it.
B&BW 3-wick Candle: Sparkling Icicles - can not get enough of this scent. so sad it's gone.
HATED: (stay away from these!)
Bumble & Bumble Invisible Oil - this oil just weighed my hair down no matter how little I used. moroccan oil is so much better.
Simple Exfoliating Wipes - oh these were awful. I hatedddd them. The regular ones are great and I will only be buying those from now on.
B&BW Mason Jar Candles - these didn't have any fragrance. You could barely smell them when they were lit! Waste of money. Skip these and go for the 3-wick candles.
Everything else was in between. Just meh. So happy to finally throw these away!
I have an overflowing bag as well this month, but that's due to a bunch of things that were half empty that I tossed when I realized that I absolutely hated forcing my self to use them so I figured they just needed to leave my life
My boyfriend thinks i'm nuts. I actually made a spreadsheet of my empties with whether or not I would repurchase! haha. I'm up to 96 items on the spreadsheet, but MOST of those are samples…..
A few recent empties to add.
Soap and Glory Off Your Face Wipes--I got them a while back from Sephora clearance. They were good. I don't use wipes often though.
First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads--This was my third or so package. I liked them a lot but am currently using a very mild toner instead. Not sure when/if I'll go back to these.
DevaCurl Mister-right--I already repurchased this.
First Aid Beauty Facial Cleanser--This is a great cleanser and lasted me a long time. I'm currently working through some other products now.
Lorac Pro Mascara--liked the formula, hated the wand.
Benefit They're Real Mascara--Sephora Birthday gift. I have another small one to use now.
Lancome Definicils--LOVE this mascara and wand. Probably won't buy it though...I am cheap with mascara.
Aveeno Baby Soothing Relief Moisture Cream--I use this on my kids and sometimes on my legs. I find it soothes dry, itchy skin. It's fragrance free which is sometimes what I'm looking for. I'm going to use up some other stuff and maybe re-buy.
