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.
It was Diffused Light and it took me probably a year. I used it almost daily in winter as an allover setting powder (now that it's summer I'm using a mattifying one to combat humidity).
When it got low, like just in the corners, I used the end of a brush to break it up so I could use it as a loose powder to get the dregs of it, especially for undereyes. My face powder brush is too big to get into the corners, but I use the small teardrop SephoraxHakuhodo brush for undereye powder, which worked perfectly.
Equate makeup removing wipes - I really love these. They remove my makeup and don't sting my eyes.
Sexy hair Soy Tri-wheat leave in - holy amazing. I can definitely tell when I don't use this. It keeps my hair tangle free and manageable. I try to stock up when it goes one sale
Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue - one of my favorite perfumes. It's light and fresh. I've already purchased a full size bottle.
Dove Cucumber & Green Tea Deodorant - keeps my pits dry and un-smelly. Works great for sensitive underarms.
Bath & Body Works Strawberry, Bourbon, & Vanilla Shower Gel - love this scent! Lathers well, and gets me clean.
Shisedo Cotton - really like that this doesn't ball up or get caught in my lashes. Definitely want to buy this again.
Kate Somerville Exfolikate - love this stuff. I use this 1 time a week and my skin likes it.
Living Proof Restore Shampoo & Conditioner - smells good, kept my hair soft. I just love my Redkem Extreme more.
Biore Nose Pore Strip - so satisfying seeing all this little gunk trees on it after you take it off.
FAB Radiance Pads - I really like these but noticed they left my skin a little sticky after a while.
MAC Oil Control Lotion - apply before makeup application and it helps with my oily mess.
Dr. Brandt Pores No More Primer - like this, smoothes my face leaving it smooth and flawless. Also like that it doesn't contribute to my oil problem, but helps keep it at bay.
Re: Empties[ Edited ]
Well here are my empties for the last couple months. Now I can finally throw them out. The only things I just couldn't bear to finish were the doucce mascara which was super clumpy and the MAC eyeshadow in wedge which doesn't seem to apply smoothly. I can't tell if it's just too old or if I got makeup snotty. And because there's just too much stuff accumulated to review everything, here's a pic of the stuff I would or have absolutely repurchased.
It's Skin makeup remover wipes are the best I've ever tried. They're actually quite oily but they remove even waterproof mascara easily. I only hope I can find them again when I go to Japan this year. I got them in Korea but can't seem to find them anywhere online. Figures.

Welcome to the trash saving community!😛😛😛😛
It only feels weird for the first month and then you start to realize patterns in your product usage and what you're actually capable of consuming versus what you've been buying. It's a very beneficial thing to do even though you'll probably get looks from your loved ones when they find your garbage stash. 😆
I can't wait to see what you've gone through at the end of the month!
Yeah I find the patterns in usage so interesting. Also it makes me realize that a lot of things that ended up in my meh or just ok pile that were full sized were things I probably should have sampled before buying. I do think posting my empties here has made me a more discerning customer. It's also made using products up just as satisfying as buying them.
I completely understand that. The trash was overflowing out of the bag I keep it in and I almost threw it out a couple times
Bahahahaha, we're so far behind schedule with the nursery it's embarrassing! We've got new flooring in the works in there😳 Having a bassinet in our room buys us another three months or maybe four if we're lucky. 😅
Yeah, I know he's not going to care or be impressed with his room till he's like three or so, but I can't help but feel he needs his space (or I'll be needing mine) before then.
We're just trying to update our guest room which was in reality a storage room. It's been quite the process. We definitely needed to allot more time than we did. I didn't take into account how exhausted I would be feeling when the nesting kicked in.
