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.

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 allSmiley Happy 

Re: Empties

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

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!!! Smiley Happy

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

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. Smiley Happy 

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 ;-)

Re: Empties

Clutter drives me insane, so I keep my empties bag hidden. Even though I hate seeing a pile of beauty junk collecting, there's something so oddly satisfying knowing that I used up all that stuff. I kind of justify a big splurge knowing I've used up so many products.

Re: Empties

Oh good point.   Something to rationalize!! 

Re: Empties

Mines gonna think I'm nuts saving my trash.  

Re: Empties

My husband laughed at me the first time he found my bag under the sink too, but he barely goes under there.  I think it is like an outta sight out of mind thing for him, because he has not mentioned it since. 

Re: Empties

Haha, yeah I think I might try hiding my stash of empties As well,  I've already had to explain a lot of weird habits.  Taking pictures of my makeup, wandering around looking for the right lighting ( hey! He promised me a camera a white back!!!)  this is gonna top the cake! 

Re: Empties

Yup.  They just do not understand.  

 

That's okay, because I do not understand everything he does either.
