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.

[ Edited ]

Oh, all my samples are in little purple jars that look like the big jars.  That one is super cute! 

Ma'am?  Lol!  I've never been called that before! 

Re: Empties

I try to be more polite when I have to deliver contradictory news. Lol. I received the brown bottle in trade, I am under the understanding it came with one of the mega kits from QVC. I think it's charming too, I wish they would use this as an "alternate" design to jive with the apothecary look.

Re: Empties

Lol, ma'am it is!  I love products that come with droppers!  The droppers themselves are a bit annoying but I get this irrational sense they work better.  

Re: Empties

You finished a lippie.  Color me impressed.  I still have not tried that lippie you sent me, but I look forward to trying it soon.

Re: Empties

I'm also impressed!

Re: Empties

I can't wait, ping me when it it the LotD! And this is the first Strawberry gloss from September, I'm close to finishing Currant.

Re: Empties

These are my empties from Oct-Dec. I've been trying to use as much as possible since I'll be moving soon!

Korres Face Primer - I used this 3x before it went off

It's too bad GlamGlow doesn't have a mini of the Supermud, as it sells minis at the checkout line of the blue, black, and green masks.

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

I've trid samples of them all but I don't love any of them to even purchase the mini. 

Also, I have over 30+ masks in my stash O.O 

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

I love the black biore strips!  Lol!  The gross shows up better! 

And those choosy lip masks are so funny!  Did you ever read the back?  You can lighten your nipples with them! 

 

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

Yes I totally saw that! I was like hmm interesting but I'll stick to the lips :smileytongue: lol

Re: Empties

I am just finishing off Nutrix (not the body formula).  I loved it at first but grew not to like it as I used more.  It is so sticky that whenever I tried to use it in other places, I just got annoyed.  I can handle sticky on my face before bed, by not my hands and feet.  Anyway, I may give the body one a try down the road.

 

I am super impressed with everything you used in such a short period of time.  Lots of awesome products, too.  There are so many I already love or am dying to try.  

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

I had a lot of half empty products and like I said the move really motivated me not to let so many good products go to waste!

I absolutely love nutrix (body) and hate the other one. I had the exact same feeling as you. I hate feeling sticky or "greasy" it was a no no for me.

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

Nice job!

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

Thanks! You also did good with your empties!

Re: Empties

I just emptied my trash under my vanity yesterday. Next time I'll take a pic of my empties. Although I don't think they're as exciting as these are but I like to see/read the reviews of the products other people used up.

Re: Empties

[ Edited ]

I can't beleive you finished your dior cream!  Mine is almost half gone after almost a year. 

I'm trying to work on my stash as well.  So much clutter has already cleared since October!  I just got excited cause I got to move onto a new body wash!  

Re: Empties

I try to do that as well.  Some months work out better than others.

Re: Empties

Nice job! I am trying to do the same... I can't save all this stuff to photograph though. If something is empty, I have to toss it immediately. Always reduce the clutter!!
