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



August Empties: Short and Sweet Edition


Loves -

VS Pro Moisture FX Softening Lip Balm

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

Amazing Concealer - Medium Beige... perfect shade.  That never happens with samples!


Just ok, meh - 

Shea Sugar Body Scrub - Hawaiian Kukui

Origins Clear Improvement Charcoal Mask

Too Faced Bronzing Wardrobe - Chocolate Soleil was great, Endless Summer didn't even show up on my skintone.


Dislike - 

Naobay Body Radiance Lotion - Just another hotel-grade body lotion

Dr. Brandt dual fusion water - left me with black streaky eyes, wouldn't recommend

The Body Shop Coconut shower cream - great smell, but I need suds


Re: Empties

I need suds too.

Re: Empties

Haha, me too!  Not so much on my acid but for body wash I like bubbles or I don't feel clean! 

Re: Empties

My Summer empties.

I'm not gonna write about every single product, well... because it's too much :smileyhappy: 

Let me know if you're interested in particular one, I'll let you know my thoughts on it ))






What I have repurchased or will repurchase:

Yves Rocher gel washes - they don't dry out my skin and smell amazing.

Moroccanoil hair oil treatment - does amazing things to my hair.

L'occitane hand creams - my hands never been softer.

Sephora brush cleanser - does a good job and very convenient.

Glamglow both masks!

Ole henriksen truth serum - my must have, I can't live without this thing. 

Dermatologica pre-cleanse oil - removes all my makeup very well!

Ole Henriksen face cream

Guerlain mascara and lipstick ( I have several already :smileyhappy: )

Benefit brow gel

This is such an impressive variety of empties. It is inspiring.

Re: Empties

You had a great summer of emptying.

Re: Empties

Good lord. It's beautiful...

Re: Empties

I tried very hard :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Empties

I love it!  I have so many sample size items, as well, which was my motivation for posting in this thread.  I really needed to start burning through my current stash, instead of constantly acquiring more!

Re: Empties

This is what I'm trying to do :smileyhappy: They all take so much space too, and it actually saves you money to go through samples first :smileyhappy:

I feel eel like in forgetting something.. But here are my empties for the month. 


Love: the Ouidad! 

Maybe: shiseido  eye cream, Ren mask, TBS Brazil nut oil (smells ANAZING!) I liked the Korres Wild Rose but it seemed too heavy for my skin. I'm using the yogurt sleeping facial now, so it depends on how I like that. 

Nope: purity made simple, BBW Fresh Picked Lemon body cream


there were some foils too, but I forgot about them and they weren't amazing anyways

I have the world's frizziest hair.  I've been meaning to try that shampoo.  Glad to read a nice review.

Re: Empties

It was good! I really like the hair gel that came in the set. It wasn't really HG status for me, but one of the better products I've found. Especially with how my hair reacts to summer humidity. 

Re: Empties



Loved (will repurchase and have repurchased):

Josie Maran Body Butter (this was Vanilla Apricot, which is my favorite)


Liked (may repurchase or wouldn't mind receiving again as a sample):

Sephora Ginseng mask

Versace Yellow Diamond perfume

BareMinerals BareSkin Foundation


Disliked (won't repurchase or wouldn't choose as a sample again)

Living Proof PHD 5-in-1 Styling Treatment

Bliss 24-Heaven Body Balm

DevaCurl No Poo Cleanser

First Aid Beauty Deep Cleanser with Red Clay


Re: Empties

I was going to buy those Sephora masks and put them away when the SA had no clue that ordering promos were available in the store.  I had been wanting to try that Bliss body balm.  Thanks to your review, I will hold off.

Re: Empties

The balm is dense and I did not find it moisturizing at all.  It also required alot of product to cover the skin adequately.  I am so spoiled by Josie's body butter, that I was glad when the Bliss one was empty.  As for the masks, I have them all, but I can't tell a difference between any of them.  I would still throw them in an order if I was trying to hit a minimum, but I wouldn't repurchase them separately on their own.

Glad you gave the GlamGlow for eyes another go.  Sorry it did not work better for you this time.

Sounds good. Thanks for sharing!  Didn't find this on their website.  Wonder if it applies at their dept. store counters?

Re: Empties

No, only their retail stores. Go to their website for locations if you need them. What's nice is the empties don't even have to be from Origins.
