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.

:smileyhappy: destinking is a huge factor in my house!!!!  my son has an extremely high normal body temperature and so he sweats at the drop of a hat!!! he has used deodorant - more gentle ones at the beginning - since he was 6!!! he's used non kid lotions, soaps, and shampoo since about the same time.  

 

he, like me has curly hair so i just use the devacurl stuff in his hair!

Re: Empties

Intriguing to see what worked for you and what you don't rate - excellent feedback! :smileyhappy:

Re: Empties

It looks like you were able to scrape out some of the product from the bottom of the HG Mineral Veil. Can you share your technique? Mine is pretty much empty except that little bit at the bottom!

Re: Empties

i tilted it on an angle over night!!! not all the way upside down but on a slight angle do that the product went on the sides!!!  that stuff is to expensive to waste!!!!

Re: Empties

I know what you mean! This morning, I was trying to get what was left, and smacked it against my palm a few times, which seemed to work too haha. My palm did throb for a little bit, but it was still worth it. Your technique sounds way less painful!

Re: Empties

i'm a wimp...i try to go with the pain free route!  plus at 5am when i'm getting ready i would possibly miss my hand and end up throwing it through the mirror

Re: Empties

I don't remember if there's a little stopper there, but if there's, you can take it out and you'll be able to use every single drop of it :smileyhappy:

Oh wow, I remember using those Candy Kisses lip balms when I was in high school!  I didn't even know they made them anymore.  Where did you get them?

Re: Empties

i found them at a shoppers drug mart!

Re: Empties

You know I always save my empty products for this thread to later toss them out because I have enough garbage around without having to purposely save it. LOL One of these days I'll have enough self control to store them somewhere and take a picture to put on here! But in the mean time I enjoy looking at all of your guys pics! :3

Re: Empties

Re: Empties

That's an awesome idea! Thanks! I think I'll try that!

Re: Empties

and it's easy to hide when ppl come over and you don't want to look like a garbage collecting wack-a-doodle :smileyhappy:

Re: Empties

I store mine under the bathroom sink.  Out of sight.  Out of mind.

Re: Empties

I'll have to start moving things to make room under there. lol I have a lot of stuff I'm not sure quite what to do with and where/how to store. I'll be moving in a couple of months anyway so I'm sure a lot of stuff will end up getting tossed so my packing ends up being lighter. :smileywink:

Re: Empties

I actually haven't finished ANY of my makeup.... I only finish moisturizer and face wash every few months.

Re: Empties

I feel like makeup is so difficult to use up. Especially if your constantly trying out new things. For me body care is the stuff I use up the most, then skincare followed by haircare. The only makeup items I actually use up are concealers and foundations but that's usually 3-4 products a year. If I actually use up a powder products such as eyeshadow or blush I would flip out. I'm not even close to pan on any of my blushes. Haha.

September Empties

Spoiler

Love

Dial Spring Water Antibacterial Soap- I only use this on my hands in the shower, so it takes a really long time to finish a bottle.  I like the scent and feel better about cleaning my hands with this than regular soap.

Curel Daily Moisture- I like the price and it does a good job.

Original Sprout Miracle Detangler- I bought this when my older son first started getting longer hair.  It has no scent and works well at detangling.  I am going to take a break while I try other products but will likely come back to this.  My only complaint is other detanglers seem to do more for the look of my hair.

Clinique Sunscreen SPF50- I burn with almost everything.  This seems to prevent me from burning.  It is a little thick, so it takes longer to spread in.  I think the thickness helps it sink in and stay on better.  It also does not have the typical terrible sunblock smell and applies more matte than most.  If I buy it during a GWP event, it is a great value too.

Lancome Savon Fraichelle- I am in love with this smell (same as the exfoliant).  It lathers nicely and rinses clean.

Fekkai Hair Mask- One of the few masks where I actually feel my hair looks and feels better immediately after use. 

Suave Clinical Strength Invisible Solid Deodorant- Before I found the invisible solid, I struggled with white lines.  This helps.  My only complaint is this wastes a lot of product at the end because of the design.  It also does not last very long compared to the non invisible solid in the same brand.

 

Will try again

Bed Head Recovery Shampoo- My husband uses this too, which is why the shampoo finished before the conditioner.  He does not use conditioner for some reason.  It smells nice and works all right.  I've tried better and worse.  I would only use it again if he bought another one though.

Ahava Mineral Hand Cream- It feels nice, but I am not fond of the smell.  I could overlook the smell for the feel in kit or sample form, but I would not buy this again.

Murad Intensive C Mask- It tingles like crazy, so I want to convince myself it is doing something.  I am not rely sure it is though, because I have yet to notice a difference.  I would try it again before writing it off completely though.

Ahava Mineral Body Exfoliator- Works decently well.  I prefer the Lancome one.

Wen Sweet Mint Replenishing Spray- I never noticed a difference in my hair whether I used this or not.  I'd try it again, but I would not buy it.

Weather Ready Hand Cream- My husband bought this and swears it is amazing.  When I used it, I found it too greasy.  He says it is because I use too much.  If he buys it again, I will try using less to see if it works without feeling greasy.

Clinique Repairwear Moisturizer- It moisturized all right, so I would try this again.  I did not see any improvements in my skin though.  

Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Moisturizer- Like all Juice Beauty products, the smell is not the best.  It does moisturize decently well for a lightweight cream.  

 

Not for me

Up and Up Cotton Rounds- I usually buy these for the price, because I never got why people invested in quality cotton.  This particular batch was so poorly made that they were falling apart from the start.  Upon using, they would actually start to break apart.  I bought a bunch, so I will probably use up my supply.  I doubt I would buy these again though.

Eve Lom Face Primer- It felt moisturizing, but I am not certain it actually primed my face well.
