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[ Edited ]
This month's destruction:
Proactiv + Mark Fading Padsx4- Wish I could figure out where to purchase JUST these wipes and not the whole regimen- anyone know?
Mario Badescu Healing & Soothing Mask
Flora by Gucci Glamorous Magnolia- have purchased a full size and also have a mini!
Shiseido Pureness Refreshing Cleansing Water- found this at TJ Maxx and oh my Lord it is a gem.
Hanae Mori EDT- own the full size EDP!
Nia24 Gentle Cleansing Cream
Bumble & Bumble Surf Foam Wash & Creme Rinse- LOVE. Will definitely repurchase when my shampoo/conditioner stash is gone.
Simple Cleansing Wipes- large stash.
Botanic Bath Infusion- Moments in Mint
Tea Tree Blemish Fade Night Lotion
Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara
Pearl Souffle Luxurious Shaving Cream
B&BW Orange Sapphire Anti-Bac Soap
Aubrey Clarifying Cleanser
REN Mayblossom Balancing Gel
80 Cotton Rounds
Aubrey Calming Skin Therapy Cleanser
B&BW Pomegranate Citrus Shower Gel
Koh Gen Do Oriental Plants Cleansing Cream
Koh Gen Do Spa Cleansing Water- nice, but I still think I prefer my Shiseido or Caudalie cleansing waters
Candles in Vanilla Verbena, Green Apple and Starlight
Origins Clear Improvement Charcoal Mask- sorry guys, but I don't actually see any change in my skin when using this
B&BW Lemon Summer Vanilla Lotion
Suave Mango Mandarin Body Wash
Weleda Pomegranate Firming Day Cream x2- a little too greasy for me
Murad Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture
Living Proof Restore Shampoo/Conditioner/Mask Treatment/Targeted Repair Cream- all smell amazing but don't really do much for my hair
Weleda Smoothing Night Cream
Koh Gen Doh Pure Cotton Pads
Nuxe Reve de Miel Face & Body Cleansing Gel- smells amazing (honey!) but stung
Nick Chavez Yucca Root Shampooing Cream
C.O. Bigelow Lemon & Raspberry and Lemon & Blueberry Lip Balms- felt like these "sat" on top of my lips
Murad Pore & Line Minimizing Hydrator
Becca Foundation in Porcelain- looks good, breaks me out. But every liquid foundation does.
Dr. Hauschka Facial Toner
Dermatologica Skin Hydrating Booster
Phyto Paris Express Conditioner- smelled gross
Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner- bad alcohol! Have used this for a long time, will not repurchase anymore. Makes my skin more oily.
Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream- too greasy, smells amazing though.
L'Occitane Shea Hand Cream- greasy!
D.J.V Beautenizer Fiberwig LX Mascara- UGH! Clumpy mess, IMPOSSIBLE to get off even with waterproof makeup remover.
Derma E Very Clear Cleanser- stung
Derma E Very Clear Moisturizer- stung, my skin would be shiny later
Aubrey Clarifying Therapy Clay Mask- EWWW!! Don't know if the company sent me an old sample, but this was so incredibly gross. Came out gloopy and separated. Once on my face, felt my face getting hot, then tingly, then started itching like MAD! Needless to say, I didn't finish the sample.
I didn't realize I had so many empties this month!!
I LOVED the Agave oil for hair I have some other hair oils to go through first but this is definitely my favorite so far!
I also really like the Shiseido Perfect Mascara Defining Volume, I'm not sure if I'm going to repurchase but it is fabulous for not smudging and holding a curl, really great mascara I have so many to run through first though.
The Makeup Forever Smokey Extravagant is eww, really clumpy and dry on my lashes.
Everything else was just nice, so I've either tried better, or I definitely will keep looking for something better. That or I already have too much of that type of item to justify buying it again i.e top coat.
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!
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!
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…..
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!
