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.

WOW!! Look at all those empties!!

 

The L'Occitane Shower Oil- I was talking about this line with a friend recently- does the body oil line from them smell like almonds or does it have any peppermint in it? I know peppermint oil is in the ingredients, which is not a scent I am fond of!

You know I'm surprised that peppermint is in it. I definitely didn't notice it in the scent. It's a very sweet almond type of scent. I used it at night and it was so relaxing. Now thinking back, when I used it I did have that slight cooling affect on my skin that most mint/peppermint products have.

Re: Empties

Nice work getting through so many products.  I also love the Soap and Glory The Righteous Body Butter.  I saw that there is a travel kit with a mini size available for $20.  Soooo tempted just so I can have a small to-go size in my purse.

Ohh I didn't see that set! On to the love list it goes... :smileywink:

Re: Empties

I thought I had an amazing May/June.  You destroyed me.  Well done!  

 

I love the Korres Greek Yoghurt Advanced Nourishing Sleeping Facial too.  It is a 100 point perk, and I almost ordered it.  I refrained though, because I am trying to work on more of the samples I already have.

 

I am unsure how I feel about the Tarte Maracuja oil or oils in general too.  My guess is I am not really feeling them, because I find that I barely reach for it.

 

I love the L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream too.  The smell is not my favorite, but I love how it feels.  There are only a few things I've tried from this brand that I actually like.  I have a $10 gift certificate somewhere but cannot motivate myself to find it.  I will when my lip balm runs out, I bet.

I just saw the Korres point perk. I'm actually going to place an order now for skincare stuff I'm out of and need to add it.  I kind of go through phases with facial oils. I don't reach for them too often either, I think that Tarte deluxe sample lasted me about 6 months.

I'm not a huge fan of oils either - they just don't work with me…or I'm not using them correctly - either way I'll stick with my current routine!

Does anyone else cut their tubes open to get the last of the product out?  I have a strivectin tube I just cut open and there was still an ounce of cream left!!! 

Re: Empties

Yes ma'am, I always do.

Re: Empties

I started doing that a couple of months ago and I was amazed at how much product was left! I could have sworn it felt empty and then I cut the tube and I see that I have at least 4-5 more uses.

Re: Empties

Right?  I can't beleive I haven't always done this!!!  It's so wasteful not to! 

Re: Empties

I never have, but I plan to start with the next item that needs it.

Re: Empties

I used to just assume there was nothing left if I couldn't squeeze it out and toss the tube!  at the price per ounce of so e of our products it's silly not to get it all:smileyhappy: 

Re: Empties

Hmmm, I might try and collect my empties this month so I have something to post :smileyhappy:

Re: Empties

I decided to stash mine in one of my black fabric sephora bags.  Discreet.  I don't think I'll end up having to answer to anyone.  Haha, I'm hiding garbage!!! :smileyhappy:

You know you are an addict whennnn - you hide the empties!!! At least you're in good company :smileywink:

Re: Empties

Oh my you guys!!! I have no clue what I've gone through this month!  i normally throw my empties out as I empty them.  This looks like such a fun thread though.  Perhaps I'll get a separate bin so I can keep track of what I use. :smileyhappy: 

Re: Empties

I started collecting empties about two months ago, because seeing what people actually think of the products is more helpful than just seeing the haul.  Now, that I think about it, this is my second favorite thread bumping hauls to third.  The mini reviews are the best part.

 

It is hard to remember to place them in a bag under the sink at first when your OCD is telling you to toss it.  I threw a couple of things away before I remembered I needed to save them.  Of course, once they're in the garbage, they stay in the garbage!  No reviewing that item.

Re: Empties

This is one of my favorite threads for sure. I had a hard time not tossing stuff out but now that I've been doing it for six months it feels like a habit. I actually use that old Sephora gift bag, the striped one with the lips for my empties.

Re: Empties

I use that one as well. works perfectly!

Re: Empties

Maybe I will join too...I've yet to run out of anything.  I'll have to hide the empties from my husband...he is a simplest and doesn't like clutter.  I used to collect clothing tags (and bags) in a box and he thought I was crazy so I threw them out.  He would think I was completely insane if he saw a bag of saved bottles haha ;-)
