Empties

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.

Very late here but here we go for November. upload_972744190273170808.jpg

Mouthwash x 2- Pictured because I'm super excited about finally finishing that gigantic monster bottle. Not picky about mouthwashes but I liked the ACT better.

VO5 shampoo/conditioner- Used both bottles in one sitting to wash the henna out of my hair when I dyed it. Would only purchase again if I need to redye my hair.

Vanilla buttercream sugar scrub- Would absolutely buy again if the store I bought it from didn't shut down. Smells heavenly.

Cover Girl Intense Shadow Blast- Would consider buying again. Pretty color but dried out very quickly.

Kiss My Face Pore Shrink Deep Cleansing Mask- No no no no no no no. I'm tossing this 95% full. I've given it multiple chances and something about this mask gives me a 3 day headache and makes me heave.

Biore deep cleansing pore strips- Loved the nose strips. The face ones were only okay.

Desert Essence eye serum- Still undecided on. I have another sample for December so we'll see.

Jergens oatmeal crema- Once I go through my stash of lotion, I may purchase.

Reviva Labs eye gelee- Nope. Still 99% full. Never absorbed but acted like glue and got tacky/balled up when I rubbed my eyes.

Ballet slipper soap- No idea where my mom bought it but it's cute. Smells good. Would consider.

Neutrogena visibly bright cleanser- Not a fan. Smells like grapefruit and has golden shimmer added in.

Nude oil- Nope. Too thick and hard to remove. I had to wash my face afterward to get this all off.

 

Looking back at that, it's all super negative. Hope I like more of my empties in December lol.

Re: Empties

My empties for November (late, I know...have been working on final projects) The pink in the top right is the bliss fatgirlcrub.empties november.jpg

 

Buying again:

Eyeko eyeliner

Ole Henriksen wipes (always)

Kate S. acne treatment

and the Amore Pacific moisturizer....eventually...when I can afford it.

 

Also here are the foil samples from November. I was inspired by the sample packet challenge and decided to keep count of how many I use a month.(http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Confessions/Sample-Packet-Challenge/m-p/678355#M12711)

foils november.jpgSeptember + October was 144 for me, and November adds 53 :smileyhappy:

This kind of makes me sad... so many great products, finished! (I hate finishing products that I love lol.)

Re: Empties

I think my eyes slightly bulged out of my head when I saw this post :smileyvery-happy: (I know, incredibly attractive look for me, right?)

 

That is some serious accomplishment, keep it up! Any favorites/planned repurchases from the foils?

bvnny

Re: Empties

I actually try to select foils of products I already use or have used already, and use them up before letting myself get back to the full-size stuff. That way I know I won't waste them. The few that I tried for the first time this month were the Naked foundation one, which was too dark for me. The guerlain foundation which was amazing and made my skin feel awesome...probably will buy when I run out of my current foundation. And the bagillion samples l'occitane sent me...most of which are nice, but not enough for me to switch what I am already using :smileyvery-happy:

Dermadoctor KP Duty Body Scrub: HG body exfoliant. I just repurchased another. If you have keratosis pilaris  (odd red bumps typically found on arms) you should definitely give this ago.

Vaseline Spray & Go's x3: I wanted to try these for the looongest time. I bought them in the summer and they are a decent summer moisturizer. For the winter months I need something much more moisturizing. I used these last month at the gym after a shower. Works well if you don't have ages to wait for moisturizer to sink in. The cocoa one smells soooo good, like spraying desert all over yourself. I would consider repurchasing, just not now.

Joico Moisture Recovery Shampoo & Conditioner: Not too impressed with this. I think it would work great for natural hair or hair that hasn't had too much done to it. For my chemically achieved blonde hair it didn't do much and after a while of using it my hair was left dull and lackluster. You also have to really make sure you wash it out. Double rinse, if not you're left with lovely crunchy hair.

Samples: Urban Decay Primer Potion (already own) & two perfume samples.

Do you have to rub in the moisturizer? I was thinking of getting it for my back when my boyfriend isn't around & I don't feel like twisting in all directions trying to moisturize my back.

Re: Empties

It says on the bottle you have to rub it in. However, on my back I just sprayed it on and let it sink in. It usually took about 2-3 minutes to fully dry. :smileyhappy:

Awesome! Thanks so much, I'm going to pick some up for winter.

Vaseline Spray & Go you do have to rub in.  But that stuff dries so fast!

Re: Empties

Yay skincare empties.....

2013-11-19 21.25.22.jpg

Ok I lied, the True Blue Spa stuff aren't empty, but they are almost done, I had them for a yr, and it's getting grody. Toss.

20131208_113604.jpgFINALLY I finished that gigantic bottle of not very moisturizing Nivea body lotion, honestly I just brought it cuz it says Lotus and I was curious. Boots Botanic mask feels great, but my face needs something more heavy duty. I'm not gonna miss Origins Perfect World spf25...and I have another unopened full size. =/

I started cleaning the Super by Perricone body serum bottle before remembering to take a picture, so I stuck the sticker back on to take the pic. =P

I want to try the True Blue Spa masks!  I saw this and looked on the BBW online store but I can't find them. ):

Re: Empties

Nice!! Thoughts on Take A Deep Breath, Scrub Cream and Truth Serum? (the tiny orange one I think?)

ChicDabbler

Re: Empties

I like all of them. Philosophy take a deep breath is a nice gel moisturizer, light blue with a mild pleasant not very detectable scent. I have combo skin and it's great for summer, comparable to Clinique Moisture Surge.

 

The Clinique scrub cream was my stable for 5+ yrs. It's a thick creamy scrub with round beads so there's plenty of exfoliation but it's not abrasive. I do recommend using a cleanser afterward tho or else it leaves a residue. I still have an unopened tube left, but after this I think I'm going to move onto Laura Mercier face polish, which is similar but with smaller beads and doesn't leave as much of a residue.

 

Ole Henriksen truth serum is my stable. Whatever effect it's suppose to have is not drastic, it does hydrate a bit and brightens a bit overtime, but most of all it have a very runny gel texture that sinks in easily in my combo skin and leaves no residue behind (unlike some of the lotion-y serum that I can only use in the winter). In the summer I would use this, then moisturizer only on the dry area like the cheeks and forehead. =)

I am so bad at this.  I threw away a few sample packets the other day and recycled an empty jar without even thinking about what I was doing until it was too late.  :smileysad:

Re: Empties

So...I just kept tossing the empties into a rush basket and opening up a new one...now I'm almost done with all my drugstore bath products and need to find a new gentle bubble bath and decide if I want to mix my own salts...And get a big  crock and scoop for powdered milk. Baths, srs bsns. :smileyvery-happy:

Do the Aches and Pains salts really work? Cuz I could sure use these for after visits to the gym :smileyvery-happy:

mimibel

Re: Empties

That's exactly when I use them most. They do work for me. So do Epsom salts but these have other things in. I like 'em.
