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.

Re: Empties

Before your pics I never thought of cutting the bottles in half to get at the remaining product - thanks for that!

Np! There's always a ton left over so I cut it to where I can still slip the top over the botton half of the bottle. It helps it not dry out either. 

Re: Empties

My 7-8 months worth of empties!

Love all the empties, especially all the sheet masks.  I have empties since the beginning of the year so glad to know I'm not the only one who is behind.

Impressed with how much perfume you used up!  I was unimpressed by that Ole eye cream too.  It made my eyes water.  

Re: Empties

Me too.  I need to start dabbling in my samples.

Re: Empties

Wow, you've been really working at those perfume vials! Are you on a special mission to use them up? 

 

Black opium could very well be my favorite scent right now.  

Re: Empties

Only a few empties this month because we are getting ready to move and I ended up throwing stuff out instead of keeping it around to take a picture.

Nice.  That neutrogena moisturizer is my favorite drugstore option.

LOVE

* Tony Moly Pureness 100 Elasticity sheet mask. (Just took it off a few minutes ago and my skin feels great.)

* PTR Un-Wrinkle 24K Gold sheet mask. (Such a gimmick, I know, but I think my skin did look better, or at least I convinced myself that it did.)

* Shiseido sunscreen. (I've enabled a few BTers to buy this, hope they like it as much as I do. The very thin formula makes it great for wearing under makeup.)

* UD anti-aging primer. (A classic for a reason and this little tube lasted me forever and a half. My most repurchased item.)

* Sephora eye makeup remover wipe. (A sample I liked? Shocking. I'd consider buying these for travel. It was surprising both gentle and effective.)

 

HATE

* Tony Moly Panda's Dream eye mask. (Maybe not a true hate, but I'm disappointed it doesn't really do anything. I have two left that I'll use up, but I'd never repurchase.)

* Erborian exfoliating scrub. (It didn't do much to remove dead skin at all.)

* Amazing Cosmetics concealer. (Absolutely awful. The consistency was too thick and it creased like mad.)

* Hourglass liquid lipstick in Muse. (The formula was terrible.)

* Illamasqua lipstick. (This is so old, it's from when Sephora still sold Illamasqua. I've tried two Illamasqua lipsticks and both have been very dry and crumbly, so I'm not too sad it's not sold here anymore.)

Love it!  So many empties and appreciate the detailed reviews.

Re: Empties

I love the shiseido sunscreen I used to buy this all the time and wore it under my makeup also. I forgot was is called the extra smooth?? I have quite a few mini facial lotions with SPF to work through first

Ouhhhh, you've been pampering yourself quite a bit with the facemasks!  

That sunscreen is in a lineup.  I'm using sunscreens up in order of expiration date.  There was a little sunscreen buying blitz I went through last year and I may have a little too much.

And I agree on the sephora makeup wipes!  They're great for on planes!  The take off everything and don't burn.   I keep a couple on my end table for especially lazy nights as well!  

Re: Empties

I've taken an unfortunate "better to ask forgiveness than permission" view on skincare. I'll use a sheet mask to pamper my skin after I treated it badly. (Sorry, skin!)

 

The annoying thing about the Shiseido is there's no expiration date on the tube. People have done a bit of research into trying to figure it out based on lot number and such, but now I just buy a new bottle every year. 

Re: Empties

Hehehe, your skin gets proverbial apology flowers!   

 

A bottle of sunscreen lasts me about a month unless I'm actually spending time outdoors.  Then I go through about three bottles a month, so normally I don't worry so much about it expiring under normal circumstances.  

I don't think Shiseido prints the expiry on the actual tube but they do on the box.   lol, who keeps the box after opening it?  Design flaw.  

 

 

 

 

 

Re: Empties

I've kept my boxes and searched them thoroughly. There's still no expiration, boo.

Oh that's so weird.  Maybe it's only enforced by law in Canada?  We have fairly strict spf labelling laws here.  I'm not sure of the U.S. laws.  I just checked and the expiry date is in black ink at the bottom of the tube.  Maybe yours rubbed off? 

 

At at least you have a system in place.

Loves:

 

fresh black tea toner-  this has been my favorite toner for quite some time!  I love the mostly watery but slightly milky consistency.  I've since moved onto the skII toner and am not liking it as much. 

 

Josie Maran argan oil-   I bought a jumbo size of this.  I use it on the ends of my hair.

 

Boscia makeup breakup cool cleansing oil-  since becoming pregnant my skin has become more sensitive than usual.  I switched to this stuff and voila! happy skin!

 

too cool for school mc girly bb cream-  this sample is slightly too dark for me but I just added white makeup base and it looks extremely convincing as natural dewy skin.  It's on my list of things to buy in Japan this November.

 

blah:

 

bodyshop body butter-  I used this up just to use it, but I hate the fake smell nowadays

 

fekkai hairspray-  dried my hair out

 

atelier cedre atlas-  this made me smell like I'd been making out with random men.  

Re: Empties

Nice!  Very impressed with all the empties especially the hippies.
