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.
Things i loved;
- body shop body butters
- odacite serums
- tata harper purifying mask
- ddg pad
- rad pads
- fab pads
- nude purify toner
- benefit gimme brow
- farmacy root cell serum
- Sunday Riley blue moon
- verb shampoo conditioner
- facial wipes
- tarte powder
Special shoutouts of crap go to the Blue Moon and travel size Farmacy serum. I could not for the life of me get Blue Moon to work consistently for me, and I'm so glad to be rid of it. Some days it took off my makeup perfectly and others it left a gross film that made my skin feel so heavy. The Farmacy serum is alright but the glass bottle cracked in my carry on luggage and spilled all over my quart bag of liquids. Only I didn't know that was what had cracked and so it kept leaking for the next 5 days.
@Elles117 I go through one of the large tubs and one of the minis pretty much every month.
I really like some of them and am meh about others. They do seem to have some variance depending on what your skin type is.
Consistent faves for me are the argan one, the coconut one and the cocoa butter one because the scents are pleasant but not long lasting.
Some of the fruit ones are a bit much. I tried the raspberry last month or the month before and it was SUPER strong and smelled like fruit punch. The strawberry was better, with the smell fading away after about 20 minutes.
I'm impressed your Verb bottles held up. The ink on mine kept peeling off in chunks in the shower, and without my contacts in, I couldn't tell why my hand looked like it was molting.
It's funny you mention that @TKLJ - I noticed I had black stains on my hands every time I used those and the first few times I couldn't for the life of me figure out why...

@karap03 You finished a giant Laguna?! That deserves a gold medal.And I'm sure you could find someone trading one away if you want another, since it always ends up in GWP bags.
@notcreativeDarn I should have taken a pic of the inside. It was 95% gone. The very edges still had product but it was getting to the point of not applying on the brush well making application patchy. I love laguna and have moved onto a fresh one.
Re: Empties[ Edited ]
Some finished products! 😊
Love, will repurchase or buy the full size:
Lubriderm lotion....unscented, non greasy favorite lotion.
Shiseido cotton...my fave for removing eye makeup. Does not fall apart.
Besame brightening French vanilla translucent powder...perfect for setting under eye concealer.
Benefit roller lash mascara....gives my lashes length and volume, non smudging yet easy to remove.
Natural Ice original lip balm spf 15......favorite matte unflavored balm, and it's only 99 cents.
Loreal True Match lumi cushion foundation....great coverage and staying power.
Clinique pep start eye cream....excellent fragrance free, and absorbs easily into the skin.
Fresh rose face mask....One of the most effective masks I have tried that moisturized without irritating my sensitive skin.
Did not love:
Deva curl super cream....the coconut fragrance was too strong for my liking, however the product performed well.
Crack original styling cream.... no detectable fragrance, however the product was difficult to work with and had a tendency to ball up.
Pacifica glow baby face scrub.... this was way too harsh of an exfoliant for my skin, and I did not like the fragrance.
Maybelline super stay better skin concealer...did not conceal well and had an odd fragrance that lingers.
Chanel hydra beauty micro serum......the strong rose fragrance was the dealbreaker, which was a shame because it is an effective serum.
Fresh soy face cleanser.....did not care for the cucumber fragrance, and it made my skin feel dry and tight.
Belif the true cream moisturizing bomb....not for my combo sensitive skin, felt very thick and greasy.
Dior jadore EDT.....does not work with my chemistry.
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.
