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.
You can do it! I make sure to pick one that I want to use that is pretty neutral and keep it in my desk/purse/wherever I am most likely to see it and reapply. I should say that no lipstick ever stays on me for longer than a few hours, so I probably wear some lippies like chapstick - lots of application!
Congrats on your first month of empties. Looks like you did some good damage. What was your favorite product out of the lot?
I'm coming to really enjoy foils for travel as well. I swear mine were piling up forever (hoarding tendencies) but lately I've been loving them for travel as well. I brought a few of them on a trip right now and it was nice to have an excuse to try something different. Not to mention I have a bad habit of forgetting things in hotel rooms so if I leave a sample or two behind it's not the end of the world vs. a full sized product.
I really liked the Tata Harper cleanser, and I would consider it again but would probably get the resurfacing mask before the FS cleanser. I also like the Living Proof hair mask, not sure I would get that one specefically again but would try another hair mask
I'm always so tempted to keep the packaging for some of these samples because some of them are absolutely adorable. Of course then they just sit around and clutter up my cabinets and drawers. I'm trying to be better about reusing them to hold smaller portions of product to travel with or bring to the gym.
Nice job everyone so far. My empties will be late this month since I'm traveling and not getting back till Wednesday night. Is it weird that I'm excited to share?!? I've got 2 months worth!
Yes! I also think because so long I never seemed to finish things it's really satisfying to know I'm not wasting my money and also making my way through my sample stash.

My favorite soap of all time (and the only one I keep in my bathroom for washing hands) is this Turkish rose soap directly imported from Turkey
MUFE Hydrating Primer
Jack Black lip balm
NYX Control Freak Brow Gel
Just ok or completely no
Glamglow Thirsty Mud (this is the mask) - I had forgotten how much I hate the smell
Sephora sleeping masks pearl and rose - neither did anything for me
Guzelkiz, I am from Turkey and when I saw your username I was so sure you must be too You are quite a surprise! Your love of things Turkish amazing and makes me so happy.
That Haci Sakir soap is what my parents used to use as a bath soap when I was little. They would buy either rose or lavender. It smelled so intense that I remember feeling suffocated when my mom was washing me with the lavender. (I dislike the scent of lavender )
Your soap invoked childhood memories in me. Next time I am at the Turkish market I will get a pack of Haci Sakir
Ohh yay!! Actually no, I am not, but my husband and his family are. Actually I became obsessed with all thins Turkish back in high school when I started listening to Turkish music. I've actually been there a bunch of times as well since then.
I think a lot of Turkish people used it growing up. I wish I had! One of my husband's cousins sends me "care packages" full of Turkish goodies every few months. I absolutely love it. I'm not into the lavender one either.
That's awesome! I'm glad to do that for you! They do sell it at the market I go to (halal market to get meat) but it's so special to me because my cousin in law sends it to me straight from the source
Incidentally, Zafer Bayramimiz Kutlu Olsun
I really hope they treat your skin ok. I haven't ever had a bad reaction from a skincare/makeup product luckily. I've been loving these and I still have 1 promo bottle left (and then of course I did already purchase the full size )
Great empties. I brought those PHD shampoo and conditioner samples with me to wash my hair while traveling. Also glad you explained what was in that package. I have never heard of turkish rose soap. Sounds interesting! I too have also fallen in love with the Cover FX drops.
Also interesting to see how so many of our choices are personal. I LOVE the smell of Thirsty Mud.
Yes I love the PHD line. I didn't have to actually purchase it for a long time because I had so many samples and those samples are quite generous! Haha yeah I'm sure I'm the only one here who uses this soap. Turkey is well known for rose production and I just cannot get enough of it. The Cover FX drops are amazing! I still have 1 or 2 promo bottles left but I just bought the full size today.
I just cannot stand all things coconut. It's the only food I totally dislike. I like how everyone has their own personal preferences.
