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 definitely have to add more nail polish remover to the butter london scrubbers in order to get polish off all 10 nails. But I like the scubber pads better than a cotton round so I don't mind.
I don't care for Exolikate either. I have the sample in my empties as well and it took me forever to finish it because it was just too harsh for my skin and I hated the smell. Surprised to hear the FAB facial radiance pads were too harsh. I loved them because they are pretty gentle to my skin. Just shows how individual skin is. I'm also impressed you used up two lip balms. I swear I always have a million going and lose them before I had a chance to finish them.
I also thought the Exfolikate was meh as well. I have yet to find a good face scrub I love. All the ones I tried are either meh or worse. A preview of my next empties, the Dr. Jart scrub I got a sample of irritated my face. Not many products do so that's saying something.
I'm impressed you had a month with no fails. I love BrightMud and Exfolikate.
I've never tried Wal-Mart store brand cotton rounds, but if they're good enough to repurchase, please tell me more about them.
These aren't the Wal-Mart ones (I somehow live in a part of America where a bunch of other chain stores are closer than WM, so I've never really shopped there), but are the store-brand from a local Chicago grocery chain.
I liked the BrightMud eye pods to buy the set at last year's holiday sale, but since I'm still using them up now, I clearly don't love them enough to use up in a timely fashion, so I guess I'll skip them this year. ExfoliKate ... I guess I don't see what's so great compared to other exfoliators? If anything, this one felt a little rough on me.
Bummer. I was thinking of heading to Wal-Mart to pick some of these up. I mostly shop Target, but I remembered Wal-Mart's store brand starts with something similar to that. After looking it up, I now see it is Equate.
I was going to say, I live in Chicago too and isn't that the store brand from the jewel. Living in Chicago I cant remember the last time I went to a Walmart which is fine because i love target.
Quick empty update since it has been forever since I've been on BT. I miss you guys. Finally in NC - haven't settled but after 1600 miles and not knowing anyone.. there's a lot to get used to!
These empties have been for the past two months.
My brother's ex-wife moved to NC with her boyfriend and 4 of my nieces/nephews. I miss them. When my husband travels there on business, he always tells me how great it is. I hope you love it.
Oh wow that's a lot of empties. I know it's for a couple months but wow do they ever add up quickly!
I'm glad your move went well. Here's hoping you meet some new buddies soon. That was always the hard part for me growing up in a military family. I wonder if any of the ladies on here are from your new area.

I feel like I just don't get products like the Dr. Jart+ Dermaclear. I've tried both this product and the Simple Micellar, which seems similar and neither are strong enough to remove eye makeup and they don't seem hydrating enough to use in place of a hydrating toner.
Yeah I brought the little bottle with me for travel and I liked it but think I prefer my boscia make-up break-up oil. The Dr. Jart does take off my eye make-up and seems more gentle than makeup removing wipes, with the caveat that I don't wear waterproof mascara and I don't wear eyeliner so taking off my make-up isn't that hard anyway.
