Empties

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.

Re: Empties

How did you like the Microdelivery Peel!!!! ??????

I think it was a bit too harsh for my skin :/

And it didn't really look like it did much of anything.

Re: Empties

What did you think of the benefit cream??

Re: Empties

I basically had the same opinion as sparklekai, it wasn't bad it was just okay though.

I wouldn't go out of my way to repurchase but I will definitely be reusing the little container for my other eye cream samples, that's probably my favorite part of it LOL!

Re: Empties

is that the it's potent?  if so..i'm currently using it...2 samples and a deluxe mini almost finished and i like it...i guess.  I'm not in love with it but it's not horrible.  i don't find it does anything really but it also doesn't irritate my skin which so many things do!

Re: Empties

I don't think I could commit to doing monthly empties. Maybe a quarterly or bimonthly empties post! Good on you guys for using up all this stuff!!! I feel like the only thing I go through a lot is body care stuff, everything else takes forever...

Not the best month for me…..

 

Would repurchase

 

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. :smileyvery-happy: 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 :smileyvery-happy:

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 :/

Re: Empties

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!

Re: Empties

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! :smileyvery-happy:

it's amazing what you can accomplish when you don't allow yourself to buy anything until you use somethings up!!!

Re: Empties

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! image.jpg

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 :smileyvery-happy: I think this is the most I've used up in a month!

IMG_0562.jpg

 

LOVED:

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!
