Empties

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.

Spoiler

Diorshow mascara primer- makes even bad mascaras look okay!

Benefit roller girl x2- one was from work and drying up. My HG

florapy sunflower lemon sheet mask- smells great, fits great, small improvements.

ABH brow gel- like superhold for your brows

SR good genes- so much skin tone improvement

Ole Henriksen salt scrub- loved the lemongrass in this. Smells heavenly. Would repurchase on sale.

Davines Oi conditioner
Orbie supershine moisture cream
- this is great on my hair and the scent stays just enough subtly. 

Too cool for school egg mellow body butter- great on my sad winter skin.

Farmacy deep moisture sheet mask x3- Love these. Hydration for a couple days which is hard to find during cold, dry winters.

Sephora almond foot mask x2- 

PTR 24K gold mask- I didn't like this at first but glad I gave it another try. Hydrating and works well with my skin.

PTR unwrinkle night- One of the few things I've found that I wake up with still hydrated skin.

Orbie dry texture spray- Works well with my hair

Milk makeup sunshine oil- Surprise love. Iffy on anything milk, but it mixed into my tinted moisturizer, BB/CC's really well for winter use.

Shisedo power infusing concentrate-

bobbi brown cleansing oil-

nude cleansing oil x2-

Hand cream-

DDG AB peel regular-

DDG AB peel gentle x2-

 

 

Meh:

Florapy hydration mask- not hydrating and felt really sticky when I took off.

Fresh black tea mask

Borghese body scrub

Body shop scrub

It cream- is okay on my face but I have things that are better. I use the jars as hand cream and it works great as such.

Farmacy sleep tight- I want to love this. It smells so relaxing and refreshing. Sometimes it works great and others it's meh and I can't pinpoint the trend.

Shisedo instant eye patches- They really work, for about 10 minutes (which is the intention) and then I look worse as the wrinkles creep back in. Probably an effect of them being minimized briefly but not my jam. 

Dr. Brandt NNM- Doesn't do much for me. 

Derm institute hydrating mask- not as hydrating as I'd hoped. 

Tony moly green tea moisturizer- ok. 

colbert MD cleanser

 

 

No:

Ven effect lip treatment- reacted to this

Ren evercalm mask- also reacted to

 

 

Another successful month of using up. 41 empties this month. Would have liked to use more foils. I have a couple small getaways in March and looking forward to taking some foils and using more up.

 

Re: Empties

No way (did not finish. In my personal top Oribe is most overrated product)no.jpg

 

Re: Empties

Sometimes I wonder if different products work differently for different body/hair chemistry.  Because I know Oribe works really well for me but also know that it's not for everyone.  I personally like that spray when I want to curl clean hair because it seems to add more grit to my hair for the iron to hold onto and the curls hold better.

Re: Empties

Yes, we all are different Smiley Happy

When I use this Oribe, I look like I put whole bottle of hairspray on my head. The most annoying part that this Oribe is in all GWP bags.

Re: Empties

I feel that way about bumble and bumble sea salt spray.  It came in everything for a while and made my hair look dirty, 

Re: Empties

@heartsmyface, how interesting about b&b sea salt spray. That is a HG product for me. It's the only one I've found that gives nice volume & shine to my fine & sparse hair without making it crunchy & nasty.

 

I agree some products work differently on different people. x10 true for mascara.

@heartsmyfacethanks for posting the pic of all the empty foils! It motivated me to finally put some real effort into using mine. I'm going to choose at least 7 every Saturday and use a minimum of 1 per day. Smiley Happy

Re: Empties

Which Tom Ford lipstick did you finish?I am so curious,I can never finish a lipstick.

Re: Empties

Bare.  It was super emollient so went on more like a balm than a lipstick.  

I've finished three lipsticks in the last couple years and it's a HUGE accomplishment!!!  All of them nudes.  

Re: Empties

You used an entire tube of Le Petite Robe Noir lipstick? Isn't that a relatively new item? So much respect (it takes me years to make it through a tube of anything) Smiley Very Happy

Re: Empties

No no, lol!  It was a single use of their new mascara.  It's really thick and black.  Thicker and darker than I like my lashes.  We're talking immédiate spider lashes. I know a lot of women who are going to love it!  

I appreciate lengthening mascaras over thickening ones.

Ah, ok. The packaging looks so similar to a lipstick I recently purchased and love. Interesting about the spider lashes. I love their maxilash formula, so I'll probably stick with that one. 

 

Thanks for the clarification! 

Re: Empties

Wow!  So many masks and foils.  Good job!

Re: Empties

Thanks!  I worked hard at them!  

Re: Empties

that's an impressive pile of foils!!

Re: Empties

I just let out a big sigh of accomplishment!  I challenged myself to use up at least one or two a day and it went quite well!  

Re: Empties

Adorable grabby hand! ^_^

hahaha, that first picture is priceless!   

 

We had a lot of fun trying to take pics last night for this thread!  I gave him his own garbage to entertain him but he was more interested in stealing the stuff I was playing with, or pulling the blanket out from under it!   😂  We got it done!  

 

 

Re: Empties

So many fragrance vials. I need to get better about wearing mine. And love the grabby hand photo!
