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.
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.
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.
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.
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 ;-)
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.
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.
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!
You should definitely join us! I stick a bag or box in my bathroom in a cabinet and toss things in there as I finish them It's very satisfying to see what you use up each month, especially when you have a mountain of things waiting to be used!
Re: Empties[ Edited ]
FAB - Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay - loved! My face felt so clean afterwards and never dried out.
Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray - this is a HG item for me
Dior One Essential Skin Boosting Super Serum
Dior Hydra Life BB Creme
Benefit Porefessional (full size - yay!)
Living Proof Restore Targeted Repair Cream
CVS Nail Polish Remover
Go Smile PM Luxury Toothpaste (only included this because it was given as a free sample from Ulta)
BareMinerals Full Flawless Face Brush - I have never had much luck with these brushes. No matter how carefully I take care of them, they always fray and get scratchy. This one is going to the trash.
I am really loving my First Aid Beauty Cleanser with red clay too. I alternate it with quite a few other products, so it will probably take me a while to finish it.
I like the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray too. I always forget to use it though.
