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 ]


Loved/Will Repurchase:
REN Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask- own a full size
Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask- will definitely consider purchasing! Really added a glow to my face, reduced pigmentation.
Bliss That's Incredi-peel x3
Paula's Choice Hydralight Moisturizerx3
Neutrogena Makeup Remover Towelettes- LOVED. Will definitely add to my face wipe rotation.


Derma E Soothing Moisturizing Creme/Cleanser/Serum
Guerlain Maxi Lash
Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Face Polish
The Body Shop's Mango Body Scrub
Bath & Body Works Foaming Hand Soap in Sea Island Cotton- have stockpile!
Weleda Pomegranate Firming Eye Cream


Ko Gen Doh Oriental Plants Clean Foam
Josie Maran GOGO Argan Mascara
Caudalie Beauty Elixir
Becca Satin Finish Foundation- looks great on, but slightly oily and breaks me out terribly
Clearasil Oil Control Acne Wash- for body wash! Worked ok.
Too Faced Lash Injection- good, but RIDICULOUSLY difficult to get off

Mango Candle from AC Moore


Lancome Hypnose Doll Lashes- clumpy mess
Maybelleine Baby Lips- thought I liked this, but realized that it only sat on top of my lips and when it wore off, my lips would feel chapped and burned
Healthy Sexy Hair Moisturizing Shampoo- GOOD RIDDANCE. This shampoo/conditioner duo made my hair oily- looking, heavy, lacked shine, and overall looked like I didn't wash it at all.


Other: Lots of random perfume foils!

Re: Empties

I feel the same way about baby lips. Makes em feel yucky!

This month's destruction:


Will repurchase:
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

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!

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

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


Didn't Like:
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.

Re: Empties
