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[ Edited ]
ETA: My original response made no sense because I was thinking of a different product. Sorry!
This is sort of a repurchase. I received a deluxe sample last year and bought the full size when it ran out. It lasted a good seven months with me using a tiny bit every three days or so. I'll probably purchase again, but I have so many other exfoliator samples to get through first.
Such great empties! I too am trying to get better at tossing out things that are too old or don't work for me. For me, my L'Oreal products were in that camp. I bought them when I desperately needed makeup at work for a touch up and they were never really my color or formula. They hung around my bathroom drawer far longer than they should have. Now I'm better at having a small stash of makeup at work to avoid purchases like this.
What did you think of those Karuna face masks? I've always been curious about them.
I don't know that I can judge if the Karuna masks (or any masks) actually make my skin better, but I do like that my skin is still soft the next morning. However, I actually find them a bit harder to apply than the Sephora ones; the Karuna ones stick together more and are harder to untangle from the plastic backing.
I'm a tad late but here are my August empties. There are quite a few repeats of things that are HG status for me and some items I couldn't picture because they became empty while travelling and I didn't bother keeping.

It's never too late! Also, I always have a bunch of the same items also. We call them HG for a reason, right?
Personally, I didn't like Tarteguard. I had one foil and used some of it. Probably could've gotten at least 2 more uses out of it but it felt way too thick for me.
Definitely! I eased up on trying anything new this month because I irritated my skin the month before from too much.
Honestly I didn't like Tarteguard either, I found it way too thick and it was actually categorized as a "Terrible" when I last used it. This time however, I took the foils with me to Vegas where my skin gets super dehydrated so it balanced it out perfectly.
Never too late. I have not even taken July or August pictures yet because I am missing a July empty. It seriously got up and walked away.
I will try that Ferulic someday.
Excited to FINALLY be posting my empties!!!! Last month was crazy these are empties for both July and August. And of course I found a couple of empties or near empties afterward so already working on my next month's worth.

Wow! So many empties! (bows down in awe). Lush is one of my guilty pleasures too, especially the bubble bars. I love to come home from the gym at night and have a luxurious bath.
You're making me blush! I have to say, I've been making a very conscious effort to use things up. I used to be guilty of having quite a few half or mostly used products lying around so now I'm trying to do a much better job of using one thing up before going onto the next, at least with core products. I've been especially trying to stop hoarding samples and start actually trying stuff. It's actually been quite fun!
And I too am addicted to the lush bubble bars. I have a big jar in my bathroom that I keep full of the bubble bars and bath bombs and whenever I use one I pick out another one to replace it with. I'm extremely stocked up because they had BOGO gift sets just after Christmas so I got two of the big sets full of bars.
Wow great job!!! You have so many things! Oh and the Ro's Argan is one of my absolute favorite Lush products. I'm a huge rose fan and I always have Turkish Delight, Ro's Argan, and Rose Jam (which comes out in the holidays and I buy 3-4 big bottles to last me through the year) in my shower.
Lots of people like that FAB Oatmeal mask. I will have to give it a go sometime.
Thanks! Lush is one of my guilty pleasures and my local stores are great about making quite generous samples. And I do love that FAB mask. It is one of the few products where I have multiple backups.
Yes the staff at Lush stores are always so generous! Their products are expensive so I try and spread them out as much as I can. I'm picking up that mask next time I place an order. I want to see what this fuss is about
