Re: Empties[ Edited ]
okay Sighs I am kind of a hoarder when it comes to makeup I don't ever want my stuff to end so I prolong it as long as possible. this is what I've got so far...it's not much but it's something & i will continually add more by re-editing my post the more I go through in the month of January.
As of right now I've used up:
- Origins - plantscription anti-aging oil-free cream
- Benefit Stay Flawless -Sample
- Burt's Bee's Coconut foot cream - Travel size bottle
- Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment sugar - mini
Re: Empties[ Edited ]
I will be repurchasing both the burt's bee's coconut foot cream & the fresh sugar lip treatment in full sizes the benefit primer however was good as a sample just not something I want to spend 32.00 on as a full size item still pondering the origins plantscription i love the way it treated my face just don't love the price. don't know if I will buckle & buy or hold off a while I have a few more samples of it to help sway my opinion which is always a good thing.

Re: Empties[ Edited ]
Just a small pile for me this month. My kitten wants to be a paw model when he grows up, do you think he has a future in the business?
Love: Korres Wild Rose Sleeping Facial, which I have a backup of already; AmorePacific Future Response Age Defense Cream, very sad to be out of minis of this one! Lancome Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector, I’ve got more minis of this one; Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer, which I love intensely, but it has been less effective as winter has begun, so I might give it a break; and Dr Brandt Retinol Hydracreme, something I hadn’t tried before but I liked how refreshed my skin felt after using this!
Hate: Origins High Potency Night a Mins cream, being thrown away half empty. It made me break out and didn’t absorb into my skin nicely. Also smelled like burned orange peels or something icky. Marc Jacobs mascara, which I tried to use for several weeks but it doesn’t lengthen or volumize my lashes well and its gel formula dries slowly and loves to smudge and smear everywhere somehow while it’s wet. Bleh.
Feeling Neutral: Bliss body wash, smells like bubble gum and I’m not fond of that, but it is a nice enough shower gel otherwise; O’Keefe’s hand cream, I actually use this on my feet mostly but it keeps them nice and soft. Nothing amazingly special though. La Mer Moisturizing cream, this stuff is super rich and I think it hydrates my skin well, but it reminds me too much of Nivea to make me want to pay the amount this stuff costs! Murad Oil-Free Sunscreen, nice enough non-greasy feeling SPF 30 cream, nothing special; Caudalie Vinexpert Broad Spectrum SPF15 Radiance Day Cream and Night Infusion Cream, I’m less impressed with their Vinexpert products than most of the others I’ve tried so far, but to be fair these sample tubes were pretty small. I’d want to give them a longer try before forming a stronger opinion.
Mr. Kitty definitely has a future in hand modeling- I am just impressed you kept him from plopping down directly on top of your pile as my cat would do if I was paying attention to anything but him!! LOL
I also hated Origins Night-a-mins. Gross! Peeled of my face like I was molting and broke me out!
Thanks for sharing! I LOVE THIS THREAD!
My empties this month!
I challenged myself to finish all opened products before I move on to others. And well, shower gels were used by my BF and me
What I will repurchase:
Shower gels (I liked them all)
Guerlain foundation - I used a sample and I loved it!
Rhonda Allison raspberry toner
KDG Spa water
OH Vitamin C truth serum
Wella hair mask
Maybe (after I run out of everything)
Boscia cleanser and moisturizer
Carol's daughter body souffle
Origins GinZing moisturizer
The rest - I didn't care enough to consider repurchasing.
I don't have any photos of my empties as I didn't find this thread until mid December. And to list what all I used up or had to toss due to expiration dates or time opened last year would take hours.
However the following I would repurchase or have repurchased & am currently using:
Algenist Retinol Serum & also their Lifting & Friming vream.
Elizabeth Arden Ceramide face & eye capsules as well as the toner.
Lipgloss from Smashbox, Ulta & LORAC

Primer Hourglass Veil or Smashbox Photo finish Light, Tarte Brightening
Blush- NARS Sin & the ONS palette
Cleanser CeraVe or Aveeno
Makeup remover KGD Spa water
Hair- Big Sexy
Shower Gel- Red Door
On the fence:
Dr. Perricone's Photo Plasma- jar packaging & price
HG Arch- It's a bit pricey & I'm still trying to get it right. Color may be a bit dark
Bumble & bumble Thickening set- Love what it does but has sulfates
TFSI & NARS eye primer-Like the Nars better than the TFSI but LORAC just works better for me
Would not repurchase:
ABH Catwalk palette- I foun d the colors weren't the best & quality wise it wasn't what I expected.
Benefit, They're Real- left my lashes hard.
Benefit That Gal & Porefressional- lots of hype- no bang for me.
