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.

Re: Empties

Gentle is the key word, I've seen glass shatter after coming from a cold freezer.

Re: Empties

A hot water bath will do the trick.

Oh, you didn't like Lavanilla? Why? I was going to buy one!

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

Wow sorry I didn't see this... It's an alright deodorant. It just dries out sooo fast and starts crumbling half used. It also stains my clothing.

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

I have been using the Lemon one since May (and I walk around in Florida heat btw). I put it on when I'm out of the shower so that more applies, when I put it on dry skin it doesn't activate as much.

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

i tried the lavanilla deodorant too...its still sitting mostly unused in my bathroom because it SUCKS!!!  it didn't do a dang thing and left me smelly :smileysad: i don't wanna be smelly!!!

Re: Empties

Wow.  Great emptying.  I am finally going to try the Better than Sex mascara soon.  I've put it off long enough.

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

Yes! Try it. I got the deluxe in the Lash Stash Set a while back and it's very voluminous and doesn't clump. I've got other mascaras in rotation at the moment but I really miss it. I'm waiting to use up some others to open my full size.

Re: Empties

You didn't like the Algenist eye balm? I just got a small pot/exceedingly generous sample, and I have to say, I'm impressed with its ability to nuke signs of tiredness on a long haul flight, so am thinking of purchasing. I've also thought a lot about getting the DDG Clinical Concentrate Booster, but now you're not repurchasing I'm wondering is it any good? I'd really welcome your feedback - thanks! :smileyhappy:

Re: Empties

My under eye area is constantly dehydrated even though I'm still in my 20s. I travel a lot too and I feel like this balm was OK. I wasn't too impressed with it. I liked the texture but it never felt like it sunk into my skin. I actually made an impulse purchase at an airport a while back and got the Cerave Eye Cream and it does an amazing job with keeping my under eye area hydrated during a flight. It sinks in so well and makes the skin so soft & plump looking! Plus this is just a personal preference but I prefer most of my skincare in non jar containers. I know not all ingredients need to be in air tight containers to remain stable but I prefer stuff in squeeze tubes or serum type containers. I swear whenever I have any type of jar packaging it somehow leaks/explodes all over my suitcase. Haha. 


The hydrating booster is really nice but the radiance booster didn't do that much for my skin. I didn't really see that much added radiance/glow to my skin. I've been using Skinceuticals CE Ferulic for a couple of months and that product really gives my skin a radiance boost. I was expecting a similar type of glow from the radiance booster but no luck. I still think the set is a good deal though, maybe wait for the 20% and give it a try. 


Hopefully that hat helps a bit. :smileyhappy:

Once again your empties make me feel like I'm going through my own stuff!

Q I'm currently using the cerave PM and i like don't like it... it's basic but gets the job done.

What's the dif btw the PM and the one you finished?

Great empties as usual :smileywink:

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

Also i just bought the DDG trio how did you use them?

Mixed in or alone? 

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

Hehe great minds think alike. :smileywink: I actually use the Cerave SA for my body not my face. It works really well if you've got KP, those annoying little bumps you get on your upper arms. I actually tried the PM for my face and didn't like it at all! I think the main difference is that the SA Renewing has got salcidic acid. I know people that use it for their face but I haven't tried it on my face. I feel like it would be a little too thick. I just used the boosters as regular serum. I really liked the hydrating one before my moisturizer in the morning. I wish it came in the larger size like the radiance booster. I did try mixing them with some stuff but I just prefer them as a separate step. I think the green bottle, the purifying one is my least favorite. I only use that in my T-zone, I think the bottle is still

pretty full. 

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

I also have KP but use something prescribed by my derm. Oh oops I thought it was for your face! 

I tried the hydrating one a couple of times and liked it but then I got my Sarah Chap hydrating serum and set it aside. I didn't even touch the green one because I have dry skin so I passed it on to my mom.

I have to give the radiance one a try next :smileyhappy:

Re: Empties

It destinked him.  Funniest thing I've read in a while.


At what age did you start him on normal (non baby/kid) products?  My oldest is almost 8 and has already expressed interest in Daddy's things (Mommy's too; he loves makeup).

Re: Empties

:smileyhappy: destinking is a huge factor in my house!!!!  my son has an extremely high normal body temperature and so he sweats at the drop of a hat!!! he has used deodorant - more gentle ones at the beginning - since he was 6!!! he's used non kid lotions, soaps, and shampoo since about the same time.  


he, like me has curly hair so i just use the devacurl stuff in his hair!

Re: Empties

Great post, Sparkle!
