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 do indeed. I like tubes because it's more sanitary/minimal air exposure, but you'd be surprised by how much you can get after you squeezed everything out from the tube. I always manage to get at least a sample jar's worth (2-3 more use) after I cut them up.

Bold indicates everything I would purchase in the future. A star (*) indicates that I have already repurchased or gotten the full size.
Now the best part: I CAN FINALLY THROW THEM AWAY! YAY!
I liked it too! It was the first dry shampoo I've ever tried and I thought it really helped control the oil! I finally started letting my hair go 2-3 days before washing it. It worked best when I sprayed it in the oilier sections right before bed, and I woke up without oily roots! But it did leave pretty obvious white powder in my hair so I had to rub my scalp/roots a fair amount before going out anywhere. So I think I may try the Batiste dry shampoo for Blonde/Light hair... hoping that won't leave the same white powder look!
Plus I have a 20% coupon to use at Ulta so I'll be getting it on sale.
Yeah, it wasn't perfect but it did work. I also like oscar blandi dry shampoo, but a lot of people don't like the lemony smell, so I don't want to reccomend it and have you yell at me later
Forgot to mention I didn't finish using the Age Defy Juice Beauty set (cleanser, serum, and moisturizer). I had such a bad allergic reaction. Swollen eyes and everything! So those had to be tossed without using completely.
Re: Empties[ Edited ]
Made some more empties this morning!
nailpolish remover... of course I rebuy all the time just usually different brands from wherever I am when I need it. The blush I had been packracking since middle school... no idea why but it needs to say helllo to my trash can already so I can replace it with more benefit blushes! and the body wash... addicted to most of that whole scent line and have way to many bottles already waiting for me under the bathroom sink.
quickly scrambled around to find some almost gone things and forced myself to use them one last time. Bye bye Dove deodorant,bottle of proactiv toner that has got to be older than I want to remember, Gwen stefani lamb perfume, Huggies baby wipes(i love these things... i get ocd about cleaning my makeup off once a week and these are great for wipe downs of my palettes and work area as well as swatches on my hands!), 2 packets of malibu hard water build up remover, 1 packet of ion hair mineral and styling product build up remover and one bottle of boscia's black mask(3rd bottle this year! i love love love this stuff and have already reordered!)
- L'occitane hand lotion
- Fresh Rose mask
- Tarte aquaEye gel liner
- L'occitane Jasmine&Bergamot perfume
- Burt's Bee conditioner
- OH truth oil packet
- Philosophy peel pad
Ruined/spoiled stuff to throw away. =(
- OPI 3-in-1 top/bottom coat.
- Murad lightening gel
- Yes to Tomato moisturizer
Same thing happened to mine fairly quickly. Makes me wonder what happens when you buy a full sized bottle, how long does it last before going bad?? Good thing this didn't work for me in the slightest.
