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[ Edited ]
Lots of great items. I still need to take my November and December pictures. Will get on that today.
I type first. Then, I add the spoilers (to keep it clean). When people do spoilers first, there are a lot of awkward spoilers (alerting me to who adds them before typing). After typing everything you want in one spoiler, highlight the section and hit the 5th icon from the left at the top of the text box. It looks like a sun with a cloud in its face.
Hahaha, "it looks like a sun with a cloud in its face." Made me laugh out loud. I think it looks like a yellow smiley with a white-gloved hand over its eyes, but I totally see the sun/cloud thing now.
Re: Empties[ Edited ]
Oh my goodness. I just enlarged my screen. It does kind of look like a hand giving the writer The Finger. I am going back to the innocent days when I thought it was a cloud covering the sun. The sun being the info (the light or enlightenment) and the cloud covering it (hiding it in the spoiler).
XD You are too funny. It does look like The Finger. Here I am being innocent as well thinking its a thumb, but it's totally saying "Eff you, I'm making you click this extra button to get to this content."
I seem to have been near empty of a lot of stuff last month!
Items to repurchase:
neostrata exfoliating crystals and activator set
neostata smoothing cream - Neostrata is the skincare brand I trust the most to give me results. I'll rarely sway from this brand cause it works and why mess with what works?
living proof shampoo and conditioner - I have maybe one use left of the shampoo. I always use more conditioner than shampoo. I love how this shampoo makes my hair. It almost feels thicker- like there's a layer of something on the shaft, but it never feels heavy or weighed down. My hair is definitely better after using this.
Dr Brandt pores no more this stuff is better than benefit porefessional. I bought the full size!
tarte maracuja c+brightener. I loved the creamy consistency of this and it kept my eyes moisturized all night. I have tons of eye samples right now as well as a full sized shiseido eye cream so it will be a while before I need to repurchase.
Not so fond of/ dislike
well, I will never buy tanning lotions again. I am just using up residual lotions from my stupidity days as nighttime lotions.
I hated the Supergoop! I couldn't even force myself to use it. It felt like plastic on my skin. Shudder!
I can't say I liked the Lancôme deoderant either. Too chalky.
Everything else I'm indifferent to.
Lancome has a deodorant? I had no clue.
I've been meaning to try my Living Proof stuff, but it will have to wait until I've used up more of my open stuff.
I am so impressed with all of your empty perfume vials. I have never emptied a single perfume (not even those simple mini vial samples), so I am going to make it a point to do that soon.
Yeah, they do! Lol! I got it at a drugstore on a whim of curiosity. It's supposedly moisturizing but I couldn't get over the chalkiness of it.
I'm stopping myself from buying hair products til I use up what I have as well. They're one of those things that if I get a new one as a back up, I'll end up opening it and forgetting about my half empty stuff.
The perfume vials I've been working at. I keep deciding on one and won't touch another til it's empty. Only fifty something of them to go! 😅 I can't seem to ever get through all the vials. One day I will find a sample too amazing to resist buying.
I really liked the replica one. If I were to choose a perfume now, it would win. I think I will hold off on perfume til the perfume bonus points sale. I'll deserve one by then I imagine.
Tracking my empties again! I'm just listing loves/hates and the items I don't list are my "neutral/undecided" items.

And on top of all these I got through a bunch of candles - 27 tea lights, a large Yankee Candle, and 2 Glade holiday candles. I think I'll take a picture of those too next time.
I'm hooked on the mask, although honestly I prefer it for summertime! And thanks; I'm making an effort to get through at least one foil a day for a while because my stash is insane.
I am holding out hope that I will eventually get some of that Beauty Protector. January will be my 12th box and I still have not sampled that line.
Oh no to not liking the Green Apple peel (have too many open ones to try this anytime soon). What went wrong?
I got it in my first box and this is the third bottle I've finished since. I hope you get to try it too!
The peel was a runny mess. It ran out of the bottle like water when I opened it and was tough to apply. Then I didn't like the smell, and it didn't appear to actually do anything (though it stung in the more sensitive areas of my skin). So it was a total bust for me.
