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 forced myself to use those Elf ones up. I found a 50 pack for maybe $5 from Walmart that I've really been liking.
What are you using to remove your makeup now? I'm thinking maybe switching to a balm or something like that.
Re: Empties[ Edited ]
I always forget to capture all my empties! There's some stuff missing here, sheet masks and all the foils I tried.
Love: Lush Tea Tree Toner, Bliss soap + pads, Clinique Sunscreen, Laura Mercier Ambre Vanille Hand Cream, Fresh Lip Treatment
Meh: Dermadoctor Picture Porefect, PTR Rose Mask
Hate: Murad Cleanser
Murad is one of those brands I tried so hard to love but none of the products really work for me. Kind of like Ole Henrikson. But this cleanser above, I seriously hated with a passion. I spent a year and a half trying to finish it, and I simply gave up and am chucking it now! Sigh.
Tisk Tisk! You gots to save those empties better next time! We wanna see all the things!
I love over it when I see all empties of things I don't use. I'm only familiar with the ptr and the balm.
Putting the clinique sunscreen on my list. I'm on a mission to try every sunscreen out there!
I'm just not in the habit, but I swear I'm going to try and remember to save everything this month.
The sunscreen is actually pretty heavy, but I like it because I have used it for years, it simply works, and it does not break me out. I recently switched to adding one drop of oil in with the sunscreen instead of moisturizer and it works so great for my combination skin.
The L'Occitane hand cream smells divine, but it just doesn't moisturize sadly. The Laura Mercier also smells divine.
I actually find it really satisfying to save all the foils. Rather than dumping them in the garbage I have a sephora bag in the cabinet under one of my master bathroom sinks and I pop them in there. I'm weirdly looking forward to emptying it out tonight and photographing it all.
Most loved: Karuna Anti-Oxidant masks. They make my skin so smooth!
Most hated: Givenchy Noir Couture mascara. A clumpy disaster that I binned after a few uses.
Nice empties! I wish I'd done a better job of holding onto the custom samples I had made in store. Because they label the bag and not the container itself I always seem to forget what was inside after I'm done.
Ouhhhhhh, someone's been indulging in lots of masks! I'm assuming it's safe to say you reccomend them?
Whaaaat? Your mascara was clumpy? I think you got a bad one cause mine wasn't:/
I def recommend the Karuna (thanks to greenporchlights) and the Sephora ones are a good, slightly cheaper, alternative. I've been trying to mask once or twice a week, or whenever I'm bored, really.
The Givenchy mascara was a sample, so that might account for its clumpiness. It also means I had no trouble tossing it.

I love cleansers for traveling. When I'm home I can be pretty set in my routine (I have sensitive, acne prone skin that is also really dry so when something works I'm often hesitant to switch things up even though I LOVE acquiring samples. But for traveling it's great since I'm often going for business and not checking a bag and with all the components of my makeup routine my quart sized bag can get pretty full. I also feel like I should probably try more of them leading up to the Chic Week sale as well as stop in for samples of some things I've been curious about. I've been trying to do a MUCH better job of trying before I buy since I hate waste. Thankfully I've already been trialing samples of some things I might want to purchase. Only thing I'm curious about, but haven't tried yet, are the Custom Cover drops from Cover FX which I am really curious about.
