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've wanted to try that Pacifica, but have not gotten my hands on one yet. Thanks for the heads up, because I hate harsh exfoliants on may face. I am already a picker, so there is enough damage on my skin.
My empties have been building up! I'm moving soon so I'm trying to really use up my over flowing stash before I pack it all up! Too many things to list so ask away if you have any questions
These are from May, June, and July so far:
Congrats on the move! Would love to read more about the reasons for disliking the Oscar Blandi dry shampoos. I've read so many great things, so I purchased a couple during the Beauty Steal at Ulta (even though I've never sampled any). It will take me a while to get to them though, because I use things in arrival order.
@notcreative Sorry I'm just seeing this! So I noticed I actually love the Oscar Blandi dry shampoo that comes in a yellow bottle which distributes nicely and absorbs all my oil.
This brown bottle felt really thick going on and didn't absorb. It left my hair feeling sticky and tacky at the roots.
Other people rave about this version though, so I think I'm in the minority!
@tuinamaster SO sorry I'm just seeing your comment! I LOVE it for the beauty blender. I think it works just as well, if not better, than the Beauty Blender solid version.
My favorite part about this cleanser is it comes with a little silicone pad to really deeply clean my brushes.
It's also nice that it's a little cheaper than the BB version.
@MUAStephM Last year I kept forgetting to photograph my empties each month, but I kept collecting them and finally snapped a photo of a giant pile of trash on my dining room table—the entire year's worth.

Pretty happy with how much makeup I was able to use up!
Is that the Paula's Choice BHA Gel? What do you think of that and have you ever tried the liquid? I love the liquid and just ordered another one the day before yesterday. I was going to order a sample of the gel, but it just missed the sample cut. I love that she offers the chance to buy extra samples, but I have too many samples to justify ever buying them. On my next order, I may get a sample of the gel though.
I love threads like this... I'm a bit compulsive... and I can't stand keeping all my empty bottles/foils for a month so here are my empties for the first half of July.
I loved the Amore Pacific enzyme peel, unfortunately it's a bit expensive so I'm not sure when/if I'll buy it again. And I have so many Tatcha samples to go through also.
@darkiceis @JoannaMC wanted to jump in and say, LOVE the foot masks. Definitely recommend trying them. Works great on it's own but really like it after using my clarisonic smart profile pedi attachment too. Did the math, using 1x a week for a year is the same price as 5 pedi's at going rate here, not too shabby!
@JoannaMC I ended up purchasing one and used it after a day at the beach. I have a really really bad dry left foot. This worked so well my on feeties and it they looked and felt great the next day. It lasted about 3 days so I am pretty content. I purchased a few more so I can used them consistently to see if there is more of a difference.
