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 keep my samples organized in labeled ziplocs in two little Rubbermaid drawers, and the drawers were having a hard time closing, so I had to use some up and give others away. And all the mascaras here were ones I opened in January but hated so much they went immediately in the trash pile.
It was a slog, that's for sure. I haven't worn products in my hair for years, so it sat abandoned in my shower for a long time. Toward the very, very end of it, I cheated and just used it every day until it was gone, probably stripping my hair of some essential oils in the process. (But I also have a hair mask to get through, so maybe this will inspire me to break it out more.)
january was a BIG empties month for me!!!

Great empties as usual! I have a few samples of the algenist oil,serum and eye balm. I'm too scared to try them though lol. Your empties might of convinced me to give them a try.
Woah! I'm impressed you finished that entire giant thing of the Deva Curl gel. Howl ing did it take you? I have the same size (though I'm pretty sure mine is the light defining gel, which I prefer...different strokes for different folks :-) ) that I bought whenever there was that vib and rouge point multiplier. I have a lot of longish (few inches past my shoulders), thick hair so I thought I would go through it more quickly than I have but it is only 1/4 of the way gone. The no poo and one condition I have been cruising through.
i'm going to say that the one condition and the gel lasted me about 9.5 months!!!! i have the no poo now going on 10 months and it's still got 1/4 of the bottle!!! i guess it makes sense since i technically only wash my hair (and my son his) once a week!!
i tried the light defining gel but found with the ultra i could go 3 days before i needed to do any touch ups to my hair!! i'm all about laziness!
I've given up on makeup removing wipes. A little oil and a dry cloth is all I need so I just carry a sample size of shu uemura cleansing oil around with me and some cotton pads in case I crash somewhere.
Every month is a big empties month for you. You're the most groomed person on BT (I know it).
I am not sure which I find more comical. Just say no or no just no. As usual, thanks for the laugh.
hahaha!!! thank the lord you can't see me right now!!! i would kill that myth!!!! its a combo of using things, being generous with what i use, and in the case of some things sharing with my son - devacurl was a 2 person journey!
alterna shampoo and conditioner
sephora perfection mist airbrush foundation
vichy capital soleil sunscreen (this is my favourite full body sunscreen)
shiseido ultimate sun protection cream. - nice for the face but leaves a white cast
lemon strip flash peel- I loved this! I still have multiple peels to go through but it's being considered for purchase
sugar lip balm- I have tons of these.
Mac cremesheenboy bait- super awesome buttery and a staple colour
l'oreal telescopic lash mascara- I really enjoyed this tube. I probably won't repurchase but it was a decent mascara for the money.
I think I have high pain tolerance because my girlfriend freaked out when we did a spa night together and ran and took it off. It burns for a minute and then I numb right up. I'm not sure if it's supposed to do that but I love the results! Super soft skin!
