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

LOVE all your masks and YuBe!! 

 

You're making me want to run out and buy more masks as well as the Kiehl's Midnight Recovery oil!

 

Wonderful Empties list!!

Re: Empties

Thanks, @Fernleaf. As for the YuBe ... this tube fell under my bed and lived there for a year. I pulled it out and realized I hadn't missed it at all and didn't even want to bother finishing the tube.

Re: Empties

Haha yuck I wouldn't have used it either at that point! I don't like losing things under my bed.. my cat constantly plays with my stuff and much ends up there.

August empties:

August empties.jpg

There were a few dislikes in the bunch that I couldn't wait to get rid of, but mostly there were a lot of old standbys and new loves.

 

The Davines Oi line continues to be my holy grail haircare line and I used up my shampoo, conditioner, oil and milk. (All already repurchased.) I also really liked the Davines Sea Salt spray that I got from @notcreative in a trade.  I have another TS bottle that I got from my sister that I am excited to use next.  I also really enjoy the Kevin Murphy Blonde Angel treatment.  I've been slacking on using it lately and my hair looks more yellow to my eye.  For the Deva Curl I had used up both a sample of the coconut cream styler and a full-size of the original and have decided I like the coconut version better and purchased that to replenish instead.

 

Dr. Dennis Gross peels, Ole Henriksen wipes (x2), Lush Ocean Salt, Lush Celebration, Caudalie hand cream and Anastasia Brow Gel are also all loves.

 

One new discovery I had this month was a scalp treatment from Caviar that I found at Marshall's on deep discount.  It's an interesting treatment you massage into the scalp, leave on for a few minutes, and wash out.  I don't have problems with dandruff but I do have a dry, itchy scalp so it seems to work for that.

 

All six of the sheet masks I tried were good, but I think I liked the Blue Dress Code Mask the best.  I can see why they are a favorite around here.  My skin looked really healthy afterwards.

 

The only real no's this month were the Pores No More Primer (felt like spackle) and Amore Pacific Moisture Bound Rejuvenating Cream (too perfume-y).

 

I got a little lazy about reviewing everything next month.  (With September's empties I'm going to try a new process of writing up thoughts as I finish something so at the end of the month it's not like I have to write out a novel at a whole time.)

I am so glad you liked it. I've only used mine once more since we talked about it, so I still have tons left.

 

I use the Alterna Caviar spray everyday and have been interested in trying the massage version. I also have a dry, itchy scalp that dandruff shampoo does nothing for.

Yes thank you again for that.  It works perfectly with my hair type and I especially like the scent.

 

I really like this Alterna product.  Unfortunately it seems like it was meant to be an in-salon treatment from what I have gathered because I can't find it anywhere.  But it was a good Marshall's bargain.  Of course that's the downside of Marshall's, when I really love something and am SOL about getting more.

Re: Empties

I just bought that foot mask today whilst getting my UD lipglosses.  I can't use it yet though because peeling and open toed shoes do not go well together.  It can't possibly peel like the Baby foot ones I get from Amazon tho.

Re: Empties

I am definitely going to pick up the TonyMoly Foot socks. Was going to get them in Ulta 10x points if they included it, but it was only 5x. Should have gotten it anyway at 5x. 

Re: Empties

My feet peeled a lot!! More than what I expected but they look better now. Not completely baby soft but good results

Re: Empties

My first empties post!  This is about 2 months worth.

Re: Empties

IMG_1949 (1).JPGAugust empties!

Loves:

DDG alpha beta peels- Right now I only have these from promos but I will definitely purchase in the future

REN glycol lactic radiance renewal mask- I love this stuff!  Works well and I've already openned another one.

ban in sweet simplicity- This keeps me dry and I really like the scent

Origins drink up intensive mask- Smells great and I like to use it after a clay mask.  Gives my skin a lot of hydration.

 

Liked:

Dr Brandt instant wrinkle relaxing cream- I swear I could feel this working! I definitely do not need intense wrinkle cream at this point in my life, but I could see myself returning to this in the future.

Glamglow youth cleanse- Will use samples in the future but I have other cleansers I like better.

 

Pass:

NYX matte liquid liner- cracked and flaked off within minutes! Throwing away.

DIOR Miss Dior blooming bouquet- Although nice, it didn't mesh well on my skin. Throwing away.

Ole Henriksen professional cleansing sponge- Nothing special and a washcloth works better.

Kiehls powerful wrinkle reducing cream- I started to use this then put it to the side to finish the Dr Brandt one. When I came back to use it a few weeks later it had gone bad. Throwing away.

John Frieda smooth control conditioner- Nothing special but it smelled really nice.

FAB face cleanser- I could not get over the smell! Not sure if I got a bad one or what but it didn't smell good.

Skintimate shaving cream- Was nice but drying

Gilette satin care shaving cream sensitive skin- Again, it was nice but drying

Curly Girly conditioner- conditioner from my former salon. Nothing special and very expensive.

I keep forgetting to open my dr. Brandt. Hopefully, I remember this month. Glad you could feel it working, because I need intense wrinkle cream.

Re: Empties

I think that rinse in the middle is what I am getting in my upcoming Birchbox. Can you tell me more about it? Did it reduce frizz?

Re: Empties

I don't keep my empties physically, but I did keep track of what I used this month. I actually managed to go through some big items within a couple weeks of each other, which was pretty unusual for me.

Re: Empties

My son loves the Cerave Hydrating cleanser, and it is all he wants to use. I like the way it makes my skin feel, but I miss the squeaky clean feeling I get with other products when I use it.

Re: Empties

See, I hate the squeaky feeling!  But that's also because my skin is really dry, and I feel like it's even more dry after I wash with the squeaky cleansers.
