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'm impressed by how many perfume samples you used up.  I wear perfume every day, but I never seem to make a dent in my samples.

Ditto to the above.  I could never use up all my perfume or my samples in 3 lifetimes, but I NEED to try to finish some.  Note to self:  THERE WILL ALWAYS BE MORE!

I like spraying my hair  before I go to sleep as well as during the day.  My hubby likes perfume, hehe.   I also attack one vial at a time and keep the one I'm using out so I remember to use it.   

 

Technically, I should never have to buy perfume again at the rate I am able to use them up against the rate they're coming into the house.  

Re: Empties

Nice empties pile!  Looks like you really went through quite a bit.  I also really like those benefit balms.  I just bought the chachabalm and I love it.  It's a mango color and normally I never buy things in that color family but I'm really loving them for spring/summer!

Thanks:smileyhappy:. I've been working away at my samples.  I may have a weak moment sometime and pick a balm up, but I'm hoping to avoid buying what I don't need.  Lipstick is a different story.

Re: Empties

How did you find the Algenist to be? I've been trying to use it but I find the texture...disturbing lol.

I'm not sure if mine were bad.  They were a bit clumpy.  They still smelled good so I went ahead with them.  I didn't really notice anything special from them.  They moisturized. Shrug.  

Re: Empties

No, I believe the texture is supposed to be like that but it feels too oily to me because of the clumpyness...maybe I'll give it another go.

I like oily!  My face is a dry sponge that needs everything I throw at it.   It could've used more moisture than I got.

Re: Empties

Did you snip the top off the Exfolikate?  I do that for all my products in tubes as it seems like I get SO much more out.  Must be satisfying to finally finish up something you hate!  I've realized this is the reason I can't prematurely stock up.  I still have a lot of a lotion left that I don't care for and want to push myself to finish it up before I get something new.

Re: Empties

Yes I did there was still a ton left! I keep it in a tiny jar in my shower lol 

I started with one pack of those darn makeup wipes and thought they were great. So then I stocked up during a 50% off sale. I ended up with around 20 packs. Then I realized how chemically they smell when I forgot them at home and bought the Neutrogena ones to use.

Hehe, I kinda stopped using makeup removing wipes, but I find non of them are better than the Mac ones.  If I really hate them I'll use them to wipe my fingerprinty makeup down and then dry it off with a towel.  They're still getting used right? 

Re: Empties

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.

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

Re: Empties

Lush toners are absolutely a HG for me.  I've not tried any other alcohol-free toners that actually feel effective.

Re: Empties

I love that tea tree cleanser.  I also don't know about Murad.  The skincare advisor at Sephora was pushing a really gentle one but I just didn't love it.

Re: Empties

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. :smileysad:

Re: Empties

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! 

Re: Empties

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.
