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.

The truth serum did nothing for me personally, but I'm probably not the target age for the product (21) so I'm not too surprised I didn't like it.

Re: Empties

Empties for the last couple of months.

Great empties @karap03.  That candle sounds like it would smell heavenly!  You're also reminding me I need to finally try my Belif Aqua Bomb samples.   I just have so many lotion samples.

A chapstick!! I always lose them Smiley Happy And seeing your vials reminds me to pick back up with getting through my fragrance stash..

Re: Empties

I am a nurse so I always carry a chapstick in my scrubs pocket! I go through them fairly quickly. I usually just toss them but remembered to save it for my empties

Re: Empties

I'm impressed too!   The last time I actually finished a lip balm was in college when I used to carry the Body Shop lip butter pots in my backpack and put them on when I was bored in class.  

Re: Empties

Loved!

Nothing I would use again and or didn't finish. Apparently Mia wasn't enthusiastic about them either.

love that you included your dog! Also, great job on using up candles!

Re: Empties

November and December empties.

Liked very much, will purchase again or purchase full size. Mindblowing discovery SHU UEMURA Ultime8 cleanser, Chanel consealer.

Next picture: liked, but probably will use only if I get a sample, not planning to buy (PEDI foot cream is here by mistake, it is awesome).

IMG_20161226_144808718.jpg

Just no. I wanted to love Drunk Elephant oil, but I don`t like the smell.

Re: Empties

Great empties!  I hear you on not liking products because of the smell.  I want to like Tata Harper, but I just struggle to get past the scent.

Re: Empties

@Sansara, what didn't you like about the sachajuan volume powder? i've been curious, so would love to hear your thoughts!

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

@curlieq There are much better and much cheaper options for dry shampoo. sachajuan feels on your hair like you put ton of a hairspray on your head.

Re: Empties

Lots of nice empties! I've heard a lot of not so great things about the Drunk Elephant oil - I'm working on a DS of it right now and it's pretty underwhelming, even though I love a lot of their other products! I've been mixing it in with my moisturizers though and that's been decent.

The sunday riley tidal cream.. so ican't say i'm in love with it. I loved the mini samples we got at one point, do you guys remember that? I was able to snag 4 because of my in store SA, of course I made separate purchases for them. I mean I might as well have bought it but I wanted to try it out and I wanted other stuff at the moment. Anyway, I wasn't wowed by the big guy, I bought it during the 20 percent off? I think? Not this recent one, the one that was earlier in the year? I can't remember the name. But yeah. It's done, I feel like it didn't last me and I certainly did not live by John Hammond's code: tumblr_inline_nfnnewa6d41s89hi8.jpg

November empties!

B&B Don't Blow It
I love this stuff for how easy it is to just swipe it through my hair and forego blowdrying.

Tata Harper Purifying Cleanser
I've been using this as my morning cleanse and I quite enjoy the scent and the sensation of it.  Looking forward to picking up a full size once I deplete my cleanser stash.

The Body Shop Shea Body Butter
The one I usually keep in my travel kit.  Nourishing without being super heavy.  Good for any weather.

Odacite Summer In Hossegor
I love this stuff, too. I have noticed definite improvements in my skin brightness/evenness and hyperpigmentation since I started using it.  Quite possibly HG status for me; and while the bottle is pricy, it lasted me a good 6 months of daily use.

Tata Harper Purifying Mask
This is the second jar I've gone through this year. A bottle lasts me between 12-14 treatments and I tend to use it 1x a week. I adore the sensorial experience of this mask, and it is what prompted me to try the Purifying Cleanser, too.

Odacite Bl+C
A definite HG product. I go through a bottle of this nearly every 6 weeks.  My skin can definitely tell when I've been slacking on using it.

Farmacy Clear Day sheet mask pack
I typically stick to the Brightening mask packs on their own since they're my favorite, but the Soothing and Deep Moisture masks in this set really came in handy after an intense peeling session. 

 

 

 

Meh:

Spoiler
Kate Somerville Exfolikate Intense
Other than how surprised I was by it being green (since I was only using the acne version previously) I didn't find anything groundbreaking about this.  It didn't work as well as the acne one does for me, so I won't repurchase.

Christophe Robin Purifying Shampoo
It was just ok.  Made my hair feel very dry and straw-like. 

Face Shop Mascream sheet mask
Used this after the FAB intensive radiance peel; worked ok. I didn't feel super moisturized or anything.

Omorovicza Copper Peel
There's nothing wrong with it, there are just others I like better and I find the whole mixing components a bit messy.

LookBeauty Feetreat 
Did the job. Made my feet look like a lizard for a week, followed by extreme softness.

 

 

 

Nopes:

Spoiler
Drunk Elephant C Firma Day serum
I know it's just the fermented pumpkin extract but this stuff seriously smells like meat or yeast.  I didn't hate it enough to stop using it, but after using it daily since July I've determined it didn't do much for me and for the price I wouldn't repurchase again.

I did the same foot peel about 2 weeks ago. I always thought I was buying the peels, turns out completely different than the moisturizing ones I usually get by mistake haha 😂 the peeling was in full effect and so gross!!
