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.

Re: Empties

That's a clean finish on that powder! That's really impressive Smiley Happy How long did it take you?

It took me a few months, but I didn't actually get it that clean--I was trying to use a puff to swipe out one or two final applications and cracked the edges, so there was a little lift before that. But I apply it two or three times a day, so the formula has good longevity!

Re: Empties

I got the Bliss cleaner during the BF sale too. Isn't it gigantic! It's going to take forever to show up in my empties photo.

I absolutely can't get over how much I love the smell of the bliss cleanser. I'm happy to have scored it for $10 during BF!

Re: Empties

I know-- a much bigger size that I had thought it would be. I've used it a couple times and enjoyed it, but I still had to open a new bottle of Purity to use with my Clarsonic because I feel like the Bliss is too "rough" on the skin (since it says it's an exfoliating cleanser) to use with it. How are you liking it?

I only used it enough to know I didn't want to return it. I have too many other things open at the moment.

I am quickly becoming addicted to this thread!  Jan empties:

Dislikes: 

Sephora Foot File - not sure which one exactly this is, but it never worked very well and it's just too frustrating to use.  giving up after about a year

Lush Whoosh Shower Jelly - I must not be using this right, this stuff is a mess and a half!

Re: Empties

Aww you only "so-so"-ed my favorite B&BW cream! I am OBSESSED with the vanilla bean noel scent. I only go to B&BW once a year (at Christmas time) to pick it up. I do think I am probably more enamored with the scent than the moisturizing abilities though! 

Re: Empties

Jeyrosella, I love the scent, too.  I don't think it moisturizes very well which is why it is only so-so for me.  I have better luck with the Lush lotions/creams that come in the pots.  They are so thick and creamy!  I do stock up on Vanilla Bean Noel soap to last for the whole winter, though!

 

Re: Empties

Yeah, I think this is my biggest issue with B&BW products.  I don't find they moisturize well enough for my skin type.  I tend to go for yummy fragrances more for candles and perfumes and am more boring with my day to day beauty.

Re: Empties

I love it cause it's much easier to trust the reviews of products that have been given some thorough testing.  And they're by people we talk to day by day so there's a higher level of trust.  

I just started some samples of the Dr Dennis gross glow pads.  I love the scent.  I thInk I'm ready to trial the brand.

January Empties.  I did a feature article on June Jacobs Spa Peppermint Hand and Foot Therapy, Wen Lavender conditioner, Kate Sommerville's Exfolikate, and Carol's Daughter Ecstasy Body Butter, because I am in love with all of them.  I love some of the other products, too.  Anyone who saw my DDG thread knows I love the Alpha Beta Peels.  If you want to know about anything else, just ask.

Re: Empties

Looking up your DDG thread because this brand gas caught my recent attention.

Re: Empties

Oh yeah.  That is a great product.  I highly recommend it.

Re: Empties

I didn't know Carol's Daughter made non-hair products!

Re: Empties

Haha. I wrote that exact thing in my article. I get that ALL the time. Her body products are better than her hair products to me.

Oooh, what does this red clay mask do?

Re: Empties

It's a detox deep cleaning "peel off" mask. I used it one night and my pores cleared out and tightened up you almost could see them. Im working through a couple more masks before I will let myself but a full size of this.
