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.
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.

Crew Pomade - Was more of a gel then a pomade.

Clarisonic Luxe Brush - Used this 4x and I got the worst break outs of my life! I have good skin but this gave me under the skin little lumps. NEVER AGAIN!
Ren Glycolic Mask - I know everyone loves this but I just find it ok. I prefer other resurfacing masks I have.
Caudalie Premier Cru - Was good but the price just doesn’t justify the results.
FAB Deep Cleanser - This was so drying! I ended up using this to clean brushes
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.
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.
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!
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!!
