Empties

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.

Re: Empties

I have yet to try the Living Proof dry shampoo, but I think I need to. I have found a few that I like (Batiste) but none yet that I really love.

It is a really great dry shampoo @blondesluv2shop from what I've experienced so far.  Currently using Alterna - Bamboo Style Cleanse Extend Translucent Dry Shampoo from last year's dry shampoo set though.  (Never should have bought that because after that it was like the floodgates of dry shampoos opened from subscription boxes.)  From reading around it didn't seem like other people didn't like it.  But I love the smell...mango coconut probably isn't for everyone but it sucked me in.

Re: Empties

The Living Proof is awesome, and I think you'd love it, but I've also recently tried Klorane for the first time which I think might be my number one dry shampoo! If you haven't checked that out I'd highly recommend it!

@maddieb25 I love the Living Proof but for some reason the Klorane didn't do it for me.  I wanted to love it since I know it gets so may rave reviews but it made my scalp itch.  :-/

Re: Empties

Great empties!  I tried different Skin Inc serums and wanted to love them but they were just likes for me too.  I think part of it is how teeny tiny the sample was.  I only got 1 1/2 weeks or so out of it which is no where long enough to see results.

Agreed! It would have been nice to try a sample for longer, but I didn't want to commit to a full size without knowing if it really had that much of an effect. Definitely just likes for me - I've tried other serums I like much better. I do have to admit that these tiny colorful bottles are SO cute though! I wish I had the whole collection just to line them up Smiley Happy

Re: Empties

I know!  Sometimes some of the packaging for samples is so, so pretty or cute and it pains me to throw them out.  For a long time I seemed to hang on to a lot of empty bottles and other packaging until I realized it just sat taking up precious space.  I always had visions of repurposing the packaging to do other things, but it never happened.  So I finally just had to trash them and be done with it.

Re: Empties

@maddieb25 Can you tell me more about the Yuza double lotion? What did you like about it? 

Re: Empties

I have a tough time finding toners that don't dry out my skin too much, especially approaching winter. And a lot of toners that I've found that aren't drying, aren't as effective and don't get as much excess makeup and gunk off my skin. This one is a great balance - my skin feels and looks SO clean after I use it, and the texture of my skin afterwards is so soft and just good overall. It's been a great addition to my nightly skincare routine, and I do think my skin has been glowier and healthier looking and feeling since I started using it!

Re: Empties

I love the smell of the Yuza Double Lotion! Great empties this month.

Thank you! I like a lot of things about the Yuza lotion - the smell is just one of them Smiley Happy

I love using those shampoo & conditioner samples when I travel. So much easier than mini bottles. Great job using up all those foils!

Nice job on all those foils!  I've been sucking at using them lately but hoping to do better the next two months since I have some travel coming up.  Also love that you lopped off the top of your Aveeno bottle.  :-)

The Dr Jart mask felt nice on but smelled very strongly of thyme.

Re: Empties

Nice empties.  That Dr. Jart mask scent sounds yucky though.  I like thyme in my food but not necessarily as a skincare scent.

Re: Empties

Same here. I can't imagine smelling like thyme. Gross!

Re: Empties

This October, I made it through a few staples:

 

Stila One Step Correct Serum - fs (been buying this for years)
Urban Decay Original Primer Potion - fs (seriously guys, I've had this same tube since 2012)
Cerave Facial Moisturizing Lotion AM - fs (my morning staple for the past couple years)
 
Benefit Porefessional Primer - sample (eh, doubtful I'll ever purchase, but it's fine)
Le Couvent des Minimes Loving Care Body Balm - sample (I found the smell somewhat off-putting)

Re: Empties

I have so many Porefessional primer samples it's not even funny. I need to donate them to a local women's shelter or something because I'll never use them. I tried it once and felt the same - just eh.

Re: Empties

I feel like everyone does.  Every time I do a TSB it seems like there is a glut of them.  It makes me wonder if even the women's shelters have gotten too many.  JK!  ;-)

Re: Empties

It was the same for me and the Smashbox Photo Finish primer - I swear Ulta sends it with everything! I took them all to a clothing exchange party last month and said sayonara.
