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.
Love (have repurchased or will repurchase):
Josie Maran Apple Crisp Body Butter (smells like apple pie, loved it)
Like (may or may not repurchase):
Sephora Lotus Face Mask
Sephora Lotus Eye Mask
Sephora Ultra Soothing Fiber Mask
Josie Maran Argan Oil
Briogeo Don't Despair Hair Mask
Lancome Dual Finish Powder
Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster
Phyto Phytokeratine Mask (almost a love, great scent, would like to try again)
Nest Wasabi Pear Body Cream (love the scent, but would prefer a thinner formulation)
Disney H20 Blushing Orange Shampoo (wouldn't purchase, but I wouldn't pass up another sample either!)
Disney H20 Grapefruit Bergamot Shampoo (wouldn't purchase, but I wouldn't pass up another sample either!)
Bumble and Bumble Tonic (I was interested in trying again, but now I see they call it a primer. Not sure how it might have changed.)
Dislike (no plans to purchase):
Lush Bohemian Soap (love the lemon lollipop smell, but it doesn't lather)
Bumble and Bumble Gentle Shampoo (nothing special)
Bumble and Bumble Thickening Shampoo (nothing special)
Alterna Caviar Replenishing Moisture Shampoo (nothing special)
Here are my December empties!
Lush- Finished a bathbomb (I forget which one), bubble bar (Dorothy? Over the rainbow?) and bath melt (mango). Will definitely repurchase the mango bath melt.
Excedrin intensive repair hand cream- I'm on my second tube now. It saves my hands during the winter!
Boscia detoxifying black cleanser- I really enjoyed this! I have several travel size backups in my stash. The warm sensation when putting it on my face is really nice.
Caudalie gentle cleansing milk- enjoyed it but I have other face cleansers to get through before I purchase anything. This was very gentle and I enjoyed it.
Klorane dry shampoo with oat milk- This was my first time trying dry shampoo. Once I started using dry shampoo I found my curly hair became healthy. I enjoyed this but am going to try others.
Tony Moly aloe face mask sheet- I have a love / hate relationship with sheet masks. I thought this one was very wet and soothed my skin. But my face must be small because this mask was huge on me.
Will not repurchase:
PTR Blemish Buffing Beads- used it primary during summer months after my spin classes. Seemed to work, but I went through it quickly.
OH Aloe Vera Deep Cleanser- I thought this smelled like nail polish remover. I only used it once and dumped it because I couldn't stand the smell.
Buxom lip cream in Dolly- It made my lips go numb all day and I did not like that sensation!
Josie Maran mascara- I like bold lashes and this did not give me the volume and length I desired. Would be good for someone who likes very natural looking lashes.
Sephora Rose sleeping mask- enjoyed the rose scent, but did not give me a lot of moisture. It says it is 1x use, but I was able to get a few uses out of it!
OH grease relief cleansing cloths- I thought these cloths were really dry and didn't do much for me after workouts.
I don't post in this thread because I hate saving up empty bottles & packets, but I always read it because I love the little reviews that you all do. Anyway, because of that, now any time I finish *anything* I get all excited. This morning while making lunches it was a bag of baby carrots and a bag of pretzels. I felt so triumphant .
Everything I've used up over the past couple of months or so:
Angels on Bare Skin cleanser
Eau Roma Water toner
Beauty Blender Cleanser -- this sample really impressed me!
The Sacred Truth mask
Brazened Honey mask
Did not like/Will not repurchase:
Belief True Aqua Bonb
Philosophy When Hope is Not Enough serum
Celestial face moisturizer
I also used a lot of Lush bath bombs/bubble bars but as they melt away and I couldn't take an "empty" picture of them, I made a collage showcasing them all
No spoiler b/c I liked them all XD
I haven't tried Ro's Argan but I have tried Celebrate and it's a nice moisturizer with a great scent. I make be reading your message wrong but Angels on Bare Skin is a cleanser and not a moisturizer. Hope this helps!
Yes!! And that's great to hear because that's exactly what I need for my skin. And the self preserving formula is also awesome! Have you tried any other Lush masks that you liked? I also had Cosmetic Warrior on my list.
I'm glad you found my post helpful
The best face mask I've tried from Lush is the Sacred Truth. It's so creamy and leaves your face very smooth and revitalized---as if it restored moisture. It's also not harsh or stripping.

Soy Face Cleanser
Boscia Make-up Break-up Oil
Tarte Lights Camera Splashes Mascara

Tarte Maracuja Oil was the first face oil I've ever used, and I love it. I also tried a sample of the Fresh Soy face cleanser for the first time last week and really liked it! Definitely something I would consider purchasing full size.
