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

 

Loved/Will Consider Repurchasing
Sunday Riley Good Genes - Stung a bit the first time I put it on, but then made my skin glow overnight and didn't hurt after that.
Origins Plantscription. Repurchased after receiving this sample. Very moisturizing!
Fresh Sugar. This one was in Rose. I prefer Petal.
Ole Truth Serum. I hand picked this for my skin's needs (anti-aging, brightening, oil-free), and it hasn't let me down.
Smashbox CC Cream - one of my faves
Aveda Pure Abundance Conditioner - gives great volume
Lush I love Juicy - I have very oily hair, but this was too drying for wintertime. Plan to use for summer
Bare Minerals Prime Time primer - will be comparing this to my Too Faced primer soon.

 

Not Sure/Neutral
Bath&Body Works Stress Relief Scrub. I love the scent, but there wasn't much special for this scrub.
Perricone Photo Plasma - need to try it more
Porefessional - could only try it once
Hourglass primer - need to try more.
Ole Express the truth. Very rich, so might not be good for my oily skin on a daily basis, but would be good for an occasional intense treatment.

 

Didn't Like
Burt's Bees body oil - smelled like lemon pledge and later I realized I can get a 16oz Booth body oil for less.
Origins Energizing Moisturizer (orange packet)
That gal - brightened, but didn't seem to keep my foundation on.
Sephora smoothing primer. Foundation didn't last even a few hours.
Mario Badescu whitening mask. Yuck. Didn't seem effective and was difficult to remove.
Stila CC cream- greasy, wore off, felt wet.

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.

 

Liked:
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

 

Neutral:
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

 

Hated:
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!
