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[ Edited ]
I used to be like that but then the cabinet I keep my makeup and skincare stash was overflowing. That made me decide to keep only one of each type of product out at a time so to use something else I either have to finish that one or switch it out with my stash. It helped me figure out what I actually like because those things never got switched out but used up and the repurchased
Hide things from yourself lol, in my shower I only have two body washes, both which are almost gone and only one conditioner and shampoo so that I'll finish them before I start using other stuff.
I'll join in on the fun!
Murad acne body wash - worked at first then stopped and I started getting big acne welts, not repurchasing
John Frieda Frizz-Ease dream curls spray - love, love love, already have back up
Satin Care shave gel - okay, found something better that makes my legs feel silky smooth for days after; surprisingly it is Johnson's baby oil body wash w/ shea and cocoa butter
Blink eye drops - a must for my dry eyes, already have back up
Whish shaving lotion - okay, smelled like blueberries, not purchasing
Sephora intensive instant moisture - my face is very particular, it was very fragrant so I decided not to risk it on my face and just used it for my hands, very moisturizing but not worth the price for my hands.
Fragrance samples (Giorgio Armani Acqua di Giola and Michael Kors Gold) - I liked them both, thinking about them in the future
Estee Lauder Advanced night repair serum - another love, I will repurchase after I go through other serum samples I have.

Ulta Shower Smoothie in Tangerine Dream
Bath & Body Works Peony and Berry Vanilla Shower Gels
Bath & Body Works Body Lotion in Candy Apple
(won't be repurchasing anything body wash or lotion related- I have enough for a year (or two), and need to use up my stash!)
Simple Exfoliating Wipes- love these, having been using for a long time and have backups!
Wei To Go Ideal Skin Perfect Finish (CC Cream)- love, already have repurchased
Tresemme Split Remedy Serum- won't repurchase, didn't do much
Clinique Liquid Facial Soap- ok, but I want something with salicylic acid
Body Shop Peppermint Smoothing Pumice Foot Scrub- wasn't any grittier than the other scrubs I own, and frankly I don't like peppermint
Beauty Protector Leave In Conditioner- didn't do much
Bumble & Bumble Thickening Shampoo/Conditioner- ok, won't be repurchasing
Organix Argan Oil and Shea Butter Mask- smells absolutely divine but didn't do anything special for my hair sadly
Wasn't really a month for trying out a lot of samples, but I was happy to get rid of a lot of full-size items!
I'm with you, I've told myself I absolutely can not buy any more lotions shower gels or exfoliators until I use mine ALL up. And really glad to know about the Organix Argan Oil Mask I was thinkign about trying it out.
Solidarity sister! I'm going on 7 months of no purchases of body products, and I'm finally starting to make a little room in the storage bins for these items! I have a serious candle hoarding problem too.
My hair is extremely particular. Until very recently, I had not found any products (and I've experimented quite a bit) that really were amazing for my hair. I wouldn't take my advise to heart- just because it didn't work for me doesn't mean it won't work for you!
I'm going on an absolute no buy until I use up everything! I'm gonna be strong lol I should probably do that for candles too... I honestly have way too many I've used up two though that counts for something
I've only used up:
- Glamglow Mud Mask (black). Might try the white jar this time, but am also thinking the Boscia Black Mask. What are your thoughts?
- Almost done with deluxe sample of Caudalie Cleansing Water and DEFINITELY repurchasing, but waiting for the 12th
- Inglot YSM foundation. Really liked it, but think their foundation shades are just a tad too pink for me, so probably won't repurchase.
