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.
so I finally started USING some of my samples rather than just staring at them. I recently got a new shower head filter and some mineral/chlorine remover treatments for my hair... I've had a bunch of products that worked great but then would stop so tons of half used bottles... now that I have the new stuff I am revisiting old favorites and realizing what I've been missing. I realllly love the organix moroccan argan oil line. I've tried some pretty pricey ones but none give me the results these ones did. i just finished up a hair oil and a hair mask. totally going to be a rebuy once i finish all of my other stuff... those hair build up removers were a miracle! i finished up the pantene overnight miracle treatment... will not buy... i always get sucked into commercials... everyone was raving about it... now the loreal total repair line actually lived up to the hype... the new repair stuff from pantene has been blah. and lastly i dunno if these really count as an empty... lol... from my millions of orders i had 5 of the urban decay lipstick samples and i cannot stand open little foil packets and figured it'd go bad or dry out or get wasted... so i melted them down into 4 26mm pans and popped them in my lip palette... lol 5 of each color is the perfect fill amount in case anyone was wondering!
I'm currently working on an Organix Moroccan Argan Oil Hair Mask too and I was surprised to find that I LOVE it. Gives comparable results to my (much more expensive) Fekkai Shea Conditioner.
More empties, yay....
- Lavanilla body butter (cut up the tube before I realized I haven't taken a pic)
- Dr. Brandt retinol serum
- Dr. Brandt retinol day cream
- Murad clarifying mask
- Philosophy lip balm
@dannyc. Well, I haven't finished the pink day cream yet. I didn't like either of the glow duos. I think they speed up the acne/surfacing on the chin, unless that was just hormone. However, they didn't have any effect on the Big Boss, the bumps on my cheeks. I'm using Skinfood peach sake serum + Koh Gen Do moisturizer at night, and the retinol/shiseido for day. When I'm done with the day cream I'll move on to the other exfoliator/peel options.
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.

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.
