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.

Foil packets:

Loved: Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Medium Brown (will repurchase)
FAB ultra repair cream x2 (already repurchased)
Josie Maran Argan Oil Illuminizer (using up some other stuff, but if I don't find an HG in those I'll go back to this one)
YSL Touche eclat in B50 Beige (Loved the feeling and coverage, but this was a WAY wrong shade. Need to try out in the correct shade)

Neutral: Honey Marc Jacobs
Biore pore strip
Philosophy Loveswept perfume
Algenist Advanced Anti-Aging Repairing Oil
Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin

Dislike: Korres Vitamin E Face Primer (felt too much like a moisturizer to me and didn't notice a difference with my makeup)
OH restorative anti-aging oil (I hated the smell and the orange tint it gave my face AND the sink)

 

Mini/Deluxe:

Loved: Soap and Glory Clean on Me (HG, love love love it! Have multiple back ups, but trying to use up my minis and other half used bottles)

Neutral: Bare Minerals Stroke of light (Color was good, but it was very thin and didn't provide a lot of coverage)
Flora by Gucci (this was nice)

Dislike: SkinVie Age defying lotion (got from a birch box, weird smell, didn't do anything for me)
L'Occitan Amande Shower oil (This was too weird, I need suds in the shower!)

 

FULL SIZE:

Loved: Aussie Moist 3 minute miracle (LOVE LOVE LOVE already have a backup this makes my ends stay so soft)

Neutral: Garnier Fructis Pure clean fortifying shampoo (it did the job it was meant to do and smelled nice)
Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil in Be loyal (Loved the smell, thinner than I thought it would be)
Boots Extracts Coconut body butter (LOVED the smell, but was just another random body butter to me)
Venus Razer (No idea why this was in my empty bag, but it was so it's in the pic :smileywink:)
LUSH Ice Blue soap (Love the smell. Love the icy feeling, but I love suds in the shower and this didn't give any :smileysad:)

Dislike: Bonne Bell Lip D'Votion (Thank goodness this is gone! Had it forever. Did nothing for me. Very sticky)

I really want to try that First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair cream, because I have really dry skin. Everyone raves. I think I have a foil that I need to locate.

Re: Empties

I think this is my biggest empties month yet!!

 

Loved/Might repurchase:
Fekkai Shea Butter Conditioner- smells DIVINE

B&BW Pink Grapefruit Anti-Bac Soap

Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara

B&BW Fresh Cotton Wallflowers

Caudalie Vinosource Sorbet- slightly too oily for my skin, won't repurchase but excellent product

Bare Minerals Stroke of Light- LOVED, would repurchase for summer/tanner skin usage, but in my pale months this color isn't quite light enough

Origins Mega Mushroom Mask- loved! You can put this on and actually walk around the house and forget about it! Really comfortable mask, very hydrating.

The Balm Put a Lid on It Eyelid Primer- great primer, still prefer NARS or Benefit over this so far.

Liked:

Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam

Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer

REN Micro Polish Cleanser- love how creamy yet exfoliating this is, the smell not so much.

Fekkai Shea Butter Hair Mask

PTR Mega-Rich Body Lotino & Shower Gel

Soap & Glory Vit C Facial Wash- this was apparently discontinued?

Lea Journeau Hydra-Riche Conditioner

Arangara Olive & Rose Body Lotion

MOX Botanicals Lip Butter

Neutral:

Body Shop Cocoa Butter Creamy Body Wash

Body Shop Vitamin E Hydrating Toner and Moisture Serum- not fond of the smell

Korres Mascara- I think this dried out

Origins Vita-Zing- too dark for me

Body Shop Vit C Eye Reviver Duo

Clinique Take the Day Off- fabulous at removing face makeup, not so great at eye makeup- plus, this would get onto the surface of my eyes and cause blurry vision for about an hour afterward.

L'Occitane Divine Cream- good moisturizer, slightly too greasy for me, definitely not worth the price tag.

Disliked:

Body Shop Vit C Skin Boost- caused breakouts

Smashbox Photo Finish Blemish Control Primer- whiteheads literally within a few hours of putting this on. EEEEK

REN T-Zone Balancing Day Fluid- breakouts!

REN Hydra-Calm Global Protection Cream- too greasy for my skin

 

 

Just mentioning the ones that stood out:

NARS Eyeshadow Primer- very nice! Still can't figure out my #1 eyeshadow primer, but this is definitely a contender :smileyhappy:

Caudalie Hydrating Serum- great, great product. If it had more dark-spot reducing potential, would purchase.

Caudalie Radiance Serum- again, great product but lacked the dark-spot reducing I was looking for. Thankfully the Caudalie Anti-Aging serum does, will probably buy that when my stash runs out.

Clarins Double Serum- ick ick ick greasy mess! This has SO MUCH mineral oil in it, gross!

Sephora Super Supreme Body Butter- this was very luxurious and thick and non-greasy. Wasn't a very appealing scent to me though, would buy if there were some different scent options.

Tata Harper Rejuvingating Serum- could not get past the terrible smell of this stuff. Sadly the scent lasts a long time too.

Kat Von D Makeup Remover Wipes- nice and thick, lots of moisture but stung my eyes like a MOTHER.

Re: Empties

I think you hit the nail on the head with the Caudalie Vinosource Sorbet. It is taking me a while to get through the sample I am currently using, because it just does not sooth my skin type.  I do find it moisturizing (even though it is light) on my dry skin (which is usually very dry).  I have combination skin though, so I do not like the way it feels on my oily skin.

crayzeeRN

Re: Empties

I truly wish Caudalie would come out with a very lightweight, hydrating but not oily moisturizer, because I adore their products!

Re: Empties

I don't know why it took me so long to say congrats on all your empties - you did some serious work this past month! I'm impressed with how many full size/deluxe size products you went through!

Re: Empties

What kind of hair do you have? I've been dying to try the Fekkai shea butter mask :smileyhappy:

I'm inspired by all your empties! :smileyhappy:

I hated that Fekkai shea butter mask so much that it took me over a year to finish it.  Really, I should have chucked it after 2-3 uses.

Re: Empties

I've got unruly curly hair/ringlets! The line smells absolutely amazing!

 

And thank you! It's very satisfying to get rid of a shoebox + full of items every month, reassures me that I'm actually working through my stash :smileyhappy:

Nice!!

 

I've heard of SO many people talking about the Sunday Riley burning their face! I'm surprised the item hasn't been pulled off the market!

mpolansky

Re: Empties

Yeah I agree - honestly never had anything like that happen before! It was off my face in 10 seconds flat and still burned for the whole night. So bad.
