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.

Yeah, I had so many hopes for this product. Only thing that makes me feel better - it was GWP. If I would pay full amount myself...

Re: Empties

YD didn't work for me, either - it always makes me break out. 😞 

Re: Empties

1st Quarter Empties.jpg

My first ever empties post. I decided to do mine in quarterly posts, since I don't go through that much stuff. 

Belief Bergamot Herbal Extract Toner.- Did a really good job of keeping oil at bay.
Village Naturals Therapy aches and pains muscle relief. Very nice bath soak, helped
and smell wasn't very strong.
Sephora Green Tea Sleep Mask- Amazing. purifies for a matte, clean complexion.
Sephora Almond Foot Mask


Especially Escada
Erborian Yuza Sorbet Light Emulsion. Not good enough on its own. Ok with my
regualr moisturizer.
Spalife Hydrating Facial Mask Volcanic ash + CoQ 10 . Did an ok job. Nothing
Art of Shaving Shaveing Cream. This lathered up nice, and helped with a good shave.
Dr. Brandt 3-D Lip Plumpfix PM-Did an ok job.

Art of Shaving Preshave Oil- I didn't like how it felt, seemed to do more harm than
Dr. Brandt 3-D Lip Plumpfix AM-no no no no.


Didn't Notice Anything-
StriVectin Advanced Retinol Night Moisturizer - Didn't notice anything.
Sephora Orchid Eye Mask.

March 2017 empties.JPG


BT is posting this sideways, sorry.



* PTR cucumber mask. It's so soothing.

* Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom & Honey body wash. A sample, and I wish I had the full size.



* Burberry Cat Lashes mascara in Midnight Blonde. never buy FS mascaras because I always have a bunch from GWPs and point perks. But I caved three months ago and got this after a SA applied it on me. But soon after I opened my own tube, I realized what my biggest problem with this was: I hate the brush. The SA used a disposable spoolie, but this is one of those plastic bristle monstrosities that looks more like abstract art than a makeup tool. I used some disposable spoolies myself a few times, but I still didn't like how it applied. I also wasn't too impressed with the color. I got Midnight Blonde because I didn't want another black color, and this sounded even more unusual and lighter than brown mascara. Unfortunately, I couldn't really see a difference. If you'd told me this was jet black, I'd have believed you. Just about the only positive thing about this product is the square packaging. I didn't have to worry about it rolling off my vanity. I used it for three months, and counted the days until I could open a tube of something new.


OK: Everything else. A lot of these are staples that I'll repurchase, but don't have intense feelings for.

Re: Empties

yay for having so many Loves! Smiley Very Happy i'm super curious about SR Blue Moon and think I'll bite if a good promo comes around.. have been enjoying cleansing balms over my messy cleansing oils lately


i'm so surprised you reacted to the Karuna mask (onlyb ecause it's so popular). I have one in my stash and will be a little more cautiousl when i give it a shot @CC3616

Re: Empties

@whitepolkydots I'm finishing up a FS at home too. I do really like it but at the price point I don't think I'll re-buy. Would maybe buy again on sale. Clinique take the day off balm is great  cheaper alternative. 


I was shocked that I reacted to it too because my skin is not sensitive at all. Karuna masks have never done much for me but that was the first reaction to them I've had..

Re: Empties

My quarterly empties!

Full sizes:



Bath & Body Works shower gels - I haven't met a scent I don't love
Estee Lauder Sumptous Infinite mascara - Gives me tons of volume and enchances my length without getting spidery or clumpy
Maybelline Lots of Lashes mascara - I love the smaller brush. Easier to get to my bottom lashes.


B&B Mending Shampoo & Conditioner - Wasn't amazing for me. 
Dry Bar Happy Hour Shampoo & Conditioner - Light weight didn't weigh my hair down but didn't give me enough moisture when my hair was a little more dry. 
Up & Up cotton buds - Meh, cleaned my ears and cleaned up my mascara messes. 


HEB brand cotton rounds - Fell apart, cotton strings tangled in my lashes. Nope nope nope.

i'm probably the only one who thinks this, but the drybar shampoo bottle is so cute. i was hoping you would like it so i could tell myself to get it too, but this is probably better for my low buy Smiley Tongue @StephaniLynn


i haven't tried the KVD wipes before, but i remember reading that the full size packs dry out quickly. FYI in case you were planning to buy the full pack!

Re: Empties

@whitepolkydots I love the bottles. they are cute! I liked the shampoo and conditioner, some days it just wasn't enough moisture for my lightened hair. I think the Sake Bomb and Blonde Ale lines may be better suited for meSmiley Happy


I actually ordered a full size of the KVD wipes. Terrible! Dried out a couple days after I opened them. I've been adding my Garnier Micellar water in to moisten them just to use them up. I'll stick to these 2 towelette packages when I can get a hold of them.

Re: Empties

I really enjoy empties, especially to see if peoples' reviews and if he/she would repurchase them. This is sadly not all of my March empties, but here are some of the items I finished. 


Lush Cupcake - I would repurchase but only to get it for free when you turn in 5 empty black pots to the store. I think it's a good product if you have oily/combo skin like myself. Generally speaking, I would not recommend Lush skincare because of the unnecessary fragrance, parabens, sulfates and fillers... WTF. 

Lush Christingle - I would repurchase and I enjoyed using it after my baths & showers instead of lotion. 

Lush Love Lettuce - I'm neutral on this product because of the questionable ingredients (crushed almond shells and lavender oil). I have sensitive skin. It surprisingly didn't break me out but I also wasn't impressed. If you purchase this, use a gentle touch! 

Lush Ro's Argan - I'm neutral on this product. I am not crazy about the scent but it is moisturizing. 

Lush Santa's Belly - I would repurchase. This is a fun product that reminds me of jello. The only suggestion I would make to Lush is to tone down the fragrance. 

Skinfix Ultra Rich Body Butter - I'm neutral but I probably wouldn't repurchase. They were not kidding that this is ultra rich. It's so thick to the point where you had to really work to have the product melt into your skin. When it worked, it worked well but I have better, less fussy body butters. 

IGK 30000 Feet Volume Shampoo & Conditioner - I was going through my samples and I felt like using it today. It made my hair so soft and I see more volume in my stick straight Asian hair. I would consider purchasing if I saw a good deal. 

MAC Cleanse Off Oil - I would consider purchasing this product. I didn't have adverse effects and it did a good job taking off my makeup when I did wear it. 

Bioderma Sébium H2O - I love Bioderma's micellar water and I will continue to repurchase. This is the 100 ml / travel size bottle but I also finished the giant 500 ml Sébium bottle earlier this month! I'm about to open up another 500 ml bottle of Sébium!

I'm obsessed with LUSH so I love seeing all your empties.  I always trade in my empty black pots for the free mask, but can never seem to get through it before the expiration date.

Re: Empties

[ Edited ]

I always forget to post my empties despite taking photos, whoops 🙈



All repurchases except the Target remover wipes, those are some of the worst wipes I've ever used. 

*My first drugstore foundation; not crazy about it. 


February .jpg

February II.jpg

*Didn't like the Fresh clay cleanser and thought the Origins Maskimizer was pointless



*Conditioner had far too much fragrance and did not like the Victoria Secret body wash. 

Re: Empties

Great empties!  I see a lot of minis in there that are in my stash as well.  It's been a long time since I've used drugstore foundation.  I've never find it easy to find my shade match without physically trying products on my skin.

Re: Empties

here are my empties from our cabin in Whistler.  I like everything except the choosy lip masks.  I'm fairly confident at this point that they do nothing but shut me up for ten to fifteen minutes.  

I will be buying the skinn Iceland eye cream as I think I saw improvement in my undereyes while testing it out and I need to confirm this.

oh and I really really love the Sephora brush cleansing wipes.  I bought them from the sale section a while back and am sad that I will run out on my next trip. IMG_8261.JPG

@heartsmyface the sephora brush wipes are back in the sale section, in case you want to restock Smiley Happy

Which hourglass powder is that @heartsmyface?

Re: Empties

[ Edited ]

January and February empties, I decided to go back  to every two months since I noticed I was rushing through products not actually enjoying them or not being to form a proper opinion. 


Loved. Will repurchase:




Neutral on, would give another go:




Not for me and very underwhelming: 


Re: Empties

Great empties.  It'll be something like 3 months for me by the time I finally post (eep) but in my case because I've been lazy about putting together a write up and photographing things.  I LOVE Buxom glosses.  And was neutral on Brigeo Don't Despair Repair myself.  So many better hair masks out there for dry/damaged hair.
