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.

IMG_1776.JPGFavorites:

FAB Hydrating Cleanser

Tony Moly Skin Purifying Masks in Seaweed &  Makgeoli

Alpha Skincare Skin Lightener (trying to ge rid of some brown spots on my chest)

 

Maybe:

Bioderma (though I didn't see a difference between this and the Garnier version, I would probably purchase the latter since easier to find)

 

No, no, no:

Avalon Organics Anti-dandruff Shampoo, didn't even use it up. Too much for my fine hair.

 

The rest was just meh, I remember I used to love the Cerave eye cream but now I'm just not a big fan of it.

Re: Empties

October Empties! I am proud of these, there are a lot of FS products, including both a powder (not *totally* used up, but too hard-panny to finish the dregs), and my first ever FS eyeshadow! It's an old-formula MUFE one.

Nope - never again. Some of these I couldn't even finish.

Spoiler
Exuviance Glycolic moisturizer - Ulta GWP or I would have returned it. Apparently I am not a fan of acids in my moisturizers; they can stay in my serums/exfoliators where they belong. In addition to a weird smell and weirder sticky/dry texture, this one broke me out badly. I tried using it on my neck to finish it up, and it broke out my NECK. I have never had neck pimples before - very much not a fan. Tossing it away half-used.

Boscia Exfoliating Peel Gel - I dislike the "it's dry skin" gimmick, when it's clearly just the gel itself peeling. Also it did nothing for me that I could see, and the peely gel was a pain to wash off.

Butter London Iconoclast mascara - too wet, hated the applicator
Various Commodity scents from the trial set that I just didn't like - Gin, Wool, Tea, Mimosa
Estee Edit Photo gloss - toooo sticky, and did nothing for the color of my teeth.
Ulta eye primer - too dry and hard to apply smoothly.
Shiseido face/body sunscreen - too heavy/greasy for my face

Re: Empties

@JazaChai anything standout about the strivectrin wrinkle? I have a DS I'm thinking about pulling out when my wrinkle serum runs out soon.

@CC3616 I actually used it on stretch marks, rather than face wrinkles, so I don't have any relevant advice. It did a decent job with the stretch marks though (this is about the 3rd or 4th DS I've used up), so that's something.

Re: Empties

I haven't tried that Exuviance moisturizer, but I had the exact same feeling/reaction to their exfoliating pads. It was by far one of the worst products I've ever used on my skin. I hate that you had the same reaction to another of their products - it really turns me off of trying them again in the future.

Re: Empties

Ditto ditto ditto on the Exuviance moisturizer. Maybe that's why Ulta was giving them away...

Re: Empties

I love Commodity Tea! I also got the sampler set, but I can't bring myself to spend the $$ on the full sizes. 

Re: Empties

This month's empties. Ask me about anything Smiley Happy

Nice job!  Looks like you did a good job on both full size products and foils.  I especially love that you used multiples of the foils.  Makes it much easier to tell if something is a yay or nay.  Trying to get better at that.

Which TonyMoly is your favorite? I've tried the rice one and I have a couple others sitting in a drawer, but I've been interested in some of the ones you posted here!

Re: Empties

Out of these, the skin purifying and the clear skin. I got a bunch of these with a gift card so I'm trying to get through them.

No real loves or hates this month. October was all about using up samples and getting rid of some old nail polish. I've only painted my nails myself once this year, so I wanted to declutter. Also, BT decided to make the mask photo sideways, a problem I've never had before. Cool job, BT.

Re: Empties

Great empties as always.  I always love seeing the sheet masks you use.  I always see some varieties/brands I've never heard of.

Re: Empties

thoughts on the Glossier stretch concealer? 

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

@morgannicole I was really lukewarm on it, but others in the Glossier thread seem to like it. I have very intense dark circles that require color correction and concealer, and this one couldn't cut it, no matter how I applied it.

Re: Empties

Oh gotcha! I tend to like more slippy concealers since I don't have much to cover, I just like to have a bit of a highlight/brightening which is why I thought I might like this one. Thanks! 

Re: Empties

Would you reccommend the Origins balancing tonic?

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

@Kbtt No. I lied and said I had no hates, but this is one. The bottle was actually still half full. I bought it a few years ago, and even though I found it very drying, I couldn't bear to toss it until now, because I thought it was a waste of money. This was also back when I thought all toners were supposed to dry out your skin, or else I would have returned it.

Re: Empties

So much stuff!!

Re: Empties

I am determined to use up all my little samples this year, and to not be afraid to throw away the ones I don't like. Why suffer through a mediocre moisturizer, even if it's only a DS that lasts a week or two? @CC3616
