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.
Thanks. 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.
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.

Elf exfoliating makeup removing wipes[Finally finished my stash of these!]
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.
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.
Re: Empties[ Edited ]
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?
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.
Re: Empties[ Edited ]
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
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.
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!
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.
I actually find it really satisfying to save all the foils. Rather than dumping them in the garbage I have a sephora bag in the cabinet under one of my master bathroom sinks and I pop them in there. I'm weirdly looking forward to emptying it out tonight and photographing it all.
Most loved: Karuna Anti-Oxidant masks. They make my skin so smooth!
Most hated: Givenchy Noir Couture mascara. A clumpy disaster that I binned after a few uses.
Nice empties! I wish I'd done a better job of holding onto the custom samples I had made in store. Because they label the bag and not the container itself I always seem to forget what was inside after I'm done.
Ouhhhhhh, someone's been indulging in lots of masks! I'm assuming it's safe to say you reccomend them?
Whaaaat? Your mascara was clumpy? I think you got a bad one cause mine wasn't:/
