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.

Rebuy - BM Combination moisturizer

Very interested in buying - Jurlique Fruit Enzyme Exfoliator

Unsucessful - Gross pads, BM Complexion Rescue in Natural (too dark)

Finally finished my last Purely Bright Sample! I enjoyed the TH Rejuvinating serum and Purifying cleanser, but one go isn't good enough to determine if they are as good or better than what I am already using. I like using the regen cleanser on my forehead, I get some really stubborn under the skin bumps there and this breaks them up.

Re: Empties

I think that is the hard part about skincare samples.  Unless you amass a few of them it's hard to really know if they are going to do anything.

Re: Empties

Acute observation! I think it took three of the Jurlique purely brightening to see it do anything.

Re: Empties

I am laughing like crazy that you wrote Unsuccessful - Gross Pads.  While I love them, I appreciate the humor.

Re: Empties

The darn things do no miracles for me when I need them to. I think my expectations are too high, especially since they sting like Stridex pads. So happy to give you some laughs! Smiley Very Happy

Lancome Energie Daily Cream

Benefit PoreFessional (no lasting impression, need to try again)

 

Dislike (no plans to purchase):

Lancome Energie Daily Lotion (doesn't do anything for me, is really a toner and not a 'lotion' as named)

 

Re: Empties

Always love seeing people's experiences with products.  I have that Benefit sample so I'm curious to try it out and see if it does anything for me.  The only thing I've tried on that lis is the B&B thickening conditioner.  It seems to make my hair feel so odd when wet and requires a lot of additional products to get it feeling soft, but admittedly my hair is already thick so the last thing I need is a thickening conditioner.

Re: Empties

I keep seeing this Lancome line pop up and go searching for it but can never find it.  Where did you get these samples?  

 

It is annoying when companies label toner as lotion.  I am unsure why, but I have seen La Mer, Erno Laszlo and others do that as well.

Re: Empties

notcreative....the Lancome samples are Sephora promo code ENERGIE.  It's actually a really great promo.  You get a box of 14 samples, broken down as 7 lotion packets and 7 cream packets.  I'm glad I got it because I've been wanting to try the lotion, but this was a great way to find out I don't like it!

Re: Empties

So, I finally went to place my order for this, and I see they are gone.  Boo.  Lancome direct does not even carry this line.  At least you did not like the toner.  That provides some solace.

Re: Empties

Oh, boo.  Sorry the ENERGIE promo is OOS!  I see they have a different formulation of the toner now, I wonder if it's any better?  Maybe we'll see a new promo with it soon!

Re: Empties

I missed this one completely and this promo is right up my alley.  I may need to place another order.  Thanks so much.

Re: Empties

thanks so much beauty2sample, this will be the next code i use Smiley Very Happy

Loves:

UD Deslick - Will repurchase this forever. Love love love.

Joico K-Pak Hair Mask - I have another travel size and a full size. It really helped my hair when I was dyeing it.

FAB Face Cleanser - I have several of these as well as a ton of other cleansers I need to use up before repurchasing.

FAB Ultra Repair Cream - Love this stuff when I sometimes get dry patches

Neutrogena Makeup Removing Wipes - Love these but I found some Equate brand I love better and you get twice the amount for half the price. 

 

Meh:

VS Bodywash - Smelled good. Nothing Special.

Storebrand nail polish remover - Took a little while to take all the polish off.

Sweet Pea bodywash - Got this in a gift set. Mehh.

Lady Speedstick Deodorant - Got this in a pinch from the hotel I stayed at when my grandpa was in the hospital. I love my Dove a whole lot more.

Re: Empties

Wasabi Pear Lotion? That sounds heavenly! Ditto on the ExfoliKat

Re: Empties

Wasabi Pear body cream was my favorite body product. It smelled like the ripest, most delicious pear, only a hint of wasabi. Unfortunately Sephora doesn't carry it anymore Smiley Sad 

Re: Empties

I think I saw the perfume at TJ maxx recently.

Re: Empties

I was just going to say that I bought the cream, body wash and body spray at Marshalls recently. $13 for the spray and $8 for the others. Insanely good deal for these high quality products.

Re: Empties

I totally feel the same way about the ExfoliKate.  I just don't get what is supposed to be so great about it.  It never did anything special for me and I even had the small size at one time (which later got passed to a friend).

Re: Empties

I feel the same way about Eve Lom's cleanser. I had to make sure I didn't hallucinate when I saw the price. Why is it so outrageously expensive? the only thing good about this sample was the little muslin cloth that came with it. It's pretty good size and I still use it with other cleansers Smiley Happy
