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.
I think you hit the nail on the head with the Caudalie Vinosource Sorbet. It is taking me a while to get through the sample I am currently using, because it just does not sooth my skin type. I do find it moisturizing (even though it is light) on my dry skin (which is usually very dry). I have combination skin though, so I do not like the way it feels on my oily skin.
I don't know why it took me so long to say congrats on all your empties - you did some serious work this past month! I'm impressed with how many full size/deluxe size products you went through!
I've got unruly curly hair/ringlets! The line smells absolutely amazing!
And thank you! It's very satisfying to get rid of a shoebox + full of items every month, reassures me that I'm actually working through my stash
I just used my Kat Von D make Up remover's tonight I agree with everything u just said about them nice & thick with moisture however they burned my eyes like evil lasers!!!

I know what you mean. Upon the face on fire feeling I quickly washed/scrubbed my face gently yet as vigorously as possible then immediately slapped some moisturizer on it seemed to help a little but my face still slightly tingles. hopefully the feeling goes away soon and I don' t break out too badly, I guess i will know by morning. Good thing I did this on a Saturday and not on a Monday!
I throw out all my empties but I've used up and replaced a bottle of Boscia Tsubaki Oil, Murad Oil Control Mattifier SPF 15, Wen cleansing conditioner, Tarte's Clean Slate Poreless 12 Hr Perfecting Primer and Lancôme Maquicomplet Concealer, Solid Sponge Cleanser (I use it to clean my brushes), UD Deslick Mattifying powder and Deslick Oil Control Makeup Setting Spray. Probably many more, too, but these come to mind.
Ok, I know it's late, but better late than never, right?
My March empties:
SG dry shampoo – throwing away almost full, it just made my hair look even dirtier than before using it.
Shiseido white lucent cleanser – was very nice
Yves Rocher anti-aggression mask – meh, didn’t do anything to me (maybe I wasn’t aggressive enough? )
MOR black currant body mouse – I loved it! Too bad I can’t find it anywhere now.
Kiehl’s cleansing masque – Love a lot, already repurchased.
BBW black currant body scrub – I guess it was Ok, nothing special.
Kate Somerville exfolikate peeling – the love of my life this is the second tube I finished.
Nars primer – I think it was nice, but I’m not a big expert on primers
Oscar Blandi dry shampoo – nothing special, but it does the job
Glamglow – Amazing! But I don’t think I’ll be buying it full size because of the price
Korres sleeping mask – I didn’t like it, left my face sticky till morning.
Yu Be moisturizing cream – not going to repurchase. It was super rich and smelly
Murad time release retinol – did not like it. It did nothing to my lines.
La mer serum and cream – I’m in love! But again, price is too high for a full size.
3 candles. Tocca was super nice, I loved it a lot!
A chocolate vanilla body cream from one of subscription boxes – wasn’t a big fan, not going to look for it to repurchase.
Korres sleeping mask here again – still not liking it
L’occitan milk concentrate – Oh, it smells like heaven! I love it a lot, but not repurchasing yet.
And a couple of pre-made samples

The Body Shop - Aloe Calming Facial Cleanser
Only things I hated:
PTR Laser Free Resurfacer (smelled gross...pretty sure this also broke me out. my skin did not like it)
Michael Todd - Skin Loving Aloe & Cucumber wipes (there are just so many better options out there. didn't like these at all)
The rest ranges from absolute loves to 'meh' products.
Lots! UD All Nighter setting spray, Macadamia Deep Repair Mask, Mario Badescu Special Cucumber Lotion (toner), Flowerbomb rollerball and Nars tinted moisturizers are all things I'm obsessed with! I could not go a day without that setting spray.
I also really loved the Roses de Chloe perfume but it didn't pass the boyfriend test. I personally adore the smell of roses but he prefers other scents on me which is totally fine! I have a little sample bottle I'll use but that's about it.
