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.

My Summer empties.

I'm not gonna write about every single product, well... because it's too much :smileyhappy: 

Let me know if you're interested in particular one, I'll let you know my thoughts on it ))

What I have repurchased or will repurchase:

Yves Rocher gel washes - they don't dry out my skin and smell amazing.

Moroccanoil hair oil treatment - does amazing things to my hair.

L'occitane hand creams - my hands never been softer.

Sephora brush cleanser - does a good job and very convenient.

Glamglow both masks!

Ole henriksen truth serum - my must have, I can't live without this thing. 

Dermatologica pre-cleanse oil - removes all my makeup very well!

Ole Henriksen face cream

Guerlain mascara and lipstick ( I have several already :smileyhappy: )

Benefit brow gel

Re: Empties

I love it!  I have so many sample size items, as well, which was my motivation for posting in this thread.  I really needed to start burning through my current stash, instead of constantly acquiring more!

This is what I'm trying to do :smileyhappy: They all take so much space too, and it actually saves you money to go through samples first :smileyhappy:

I feel eel like in forgetting something.. But here are my empties for the month. 

 

Love: the Ouidad! 

Maybe: shiseido  eye cream, Ren mask, TBS Brazil nut oil (smells ANAZING!) I liked the Korres Wild Rose but it seemed too heavy for my skin. I'm using the yogurt sleeping facial now, so it depends on how I like that. 

Nope: purity made simple, BBW Fresh Picked Lemon body cream

 

there were some foils too, but I forgot about them and they weren't amazing anyways

I have the world's frizziest hair.  I've been meaning to try that shampoo.  Glad to read a nice review.

It was good! I really like the hair gel that came in the set. It wasn't really HG status for me, but one of the better products I've found. Especially with how my hair reacts to summer humidity.

Re: Empties

I was going to buy those Sephora masks and put them away when the SA had no clue that ordering promos were available in the store.  I had been wanting to try that Bliss body balm.  Thanks to your review, I will hold off.

beauty2sample

Re: Empties

The balm is dense and I did not find it moisturizing at all.  It also required alot of product to cover the skin adequately.  I am so spoiled by Josie's body butter, that I was glad when the Bliss one was empty.  As for the masks, I have them all, but I can't tell a difference between any of them.  I would still throw them in an order if I was trying to hit a minimum, but I wouldn't repurchase them separately on their own.

Glad you gave the GlamGlow for eyes another go.  Sorry it did not work better for you this time.

Sounds good. Thanks for sharing!  Didn't find this on their website.  Wonder if it applies at their dept. store counters?

Re: Empties

No, only their retail stores. Go to their website for locations if you need them. What's nice is the empties don't even have to be from Origins.

Re: Empties

Hi ladies! I'm a mostly lurker here, but hoping to participate more as time allows! I am such a hoarder, I have a hard time using things up, even samples, but I am inspired by your empties thread! I have a few that I've just finished, so here they are!  I'm going to try to keep doing this.

Buy again/Loved:

lush jasmin and henna conditioning treatment' smells great, great for my long hair

phyto 7- awesome very day treatment for ends

batiste dry shampoo - I can usually find at to maxx for instead of 8 at ulta

Slatkin body wash was- amazing scent

lancome bi-facil - always good, I have a bunch more deluxe sizes already

 

Maybe:

sk-III essence - this was great but probably not worth the cost while retin-a is making my skin look great

La prairie moisturizer - good but can't justify the price

 

Just saying no:

D&G matte foundation sample - nice but didn't last as well as others

glamglow eye sample - ok, not worth purchasing for me

fekkai glossing conditio

 

looking forward to more empties soon!

Welcome! I had a difficult time using up products too but now that I've done empties posts for a while I've kind of become obsessed with downsizing my collection. It gets addicting!!!

Re: Empties

I use phyto 9.. and I'm debating repuchase.. it's awesome!

notcreative

Re: Empties

Welcome.  I've been wanting to try Batiste dry shampoo and will get there when I whittle down some of my stash.  Love BiFacial.  I love GlamGlow for eyes, so I am sorry to read you didn't.

Re: Empties

Just saw I had a ton of typos, the iPad keyboard is acting weird! The batiste is $4 at tj maxx, often I can find it there. That is one thing I've re-purchased many times, lots of scents and I like the cute designs.  The glam glow is good, but I didn't see a huge enough difference to buy. I love the face masks from them though, especially thirsty mud.

Better late than never! July empties.

 

P. August.JPG

 

Loved, would repurchase or already have:

Cerave Renewing SA Lotion: It got rid of my KP on my arms in about 8 days! I stopped using it for ten days and my KP was back. I’ve purchased a bunch of backups of this. Really love it!

Cerave Moisturizing Cream: I use this when my skin is really dry. I typically switch between this and the SA Renewing Lotion.

Alba Botanica Very Emollient Bath & Shower Gel in Mango Scent: Love these body washes. Hydrating and good ingredients. Will always repurchase.

Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic + Retinol Eye Serum: Doesn’t cause milia. Hydrates well. I even use this all over my face a couple of times since it’s similar to the serum. Love the texture.

Josie Maran Argan Milk: I apply this before my moisturizer or mix it in with it. Works great when my skin needs extra hydration.

Indeed Labs Hydraluron Hyaluronic Serum: Made my skin plump and super soft. It’s just so hard to find in the US! Walgreens carries Indeed Labs but they never have Hydraluron..

MUAC Prep Solution: Use this before my MUAC Mandelic Peel. Neutrolizes the skin and preps for a peel.

Prescription Retinoid: HG item. Retinoids completely changed my skin. I use them every other night.

Alpha Hydrox Spotlight Skin Lightener: Great 2% hydroquinone based brown spot lightener. Use this on my chest/back to lighten old sunspots (teenage sunbathing days, wwwhyy!?!?) and it works really well. I’m finishing up another tube and then I’m going to take a break off of hydroquinone products for a while.

 

On the fence, a maybe repurchase:

Bath & Body Works Bellini Small Candle & Hawaiian Hibiscus Mini Candle

Bath & Body Works Triple Moisture Cucumber Melon: I don’t like the regular BBW lotions but these Triple Moisture Creams are very hydrating. Would consider repurchasing, just a different scent.

Dr. Dennis Gross Hydra-Pure Vitamin C Brightening Serum: This is really great formulated Vitamin serum, I’m just not a fan of the silicone texture. I’m currently using a Vitamin C Serum by Skinceuticals which I prefer more…

Dr. Dennis Gross Age Erase Moisture Mega 10: Hydrating and doesn’t break me out. It does a great job of fixing dehydrated skin, however, I’m not sure if it’s a must have in my skincare routine.

 

Not for me, wouldn’t repurchase:

Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Face Polish

Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum

Clarins UV Plus HP SPF 40 Sunscreen

Chanel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover

Loved, would repurchase or already have:

Ardell Accent Lashes 301: I’m still getting the hang of lashes. These are a lot easier to place on my lashes that full lashes. I use these when I do a winged eyeliner look.

NYX Super Skinny Eye Marker: Great skinny liner. Lasts about 6 hrs on my eyes (I don’t have oily lids). The only issue is the actual marker dries out kind of fast but it’s really affordable so I don’t really have an issue with it drying out so fast.

Leaders Insolution Aquaringer x 2: Great before/after flight for extra hydration.

Leaders Insolution Vitabright: HG mask for getting extra glow.

Soap & Glory Righteous Body Butter: Still love this body butter. In the near future I will repurchase for sure.

It’s a 10 Miracle Hair Mask: Made my bleached hair super soft and healthy looking. Didn’t weigh down my hair.

 

On the fence, a maybe repurchase:

Leaders Insolution Hydrogel Eye Therapy Patch: I was obsessed with this for a couple of months, especially before/after flights but I’ve found other eye treatments that I prefer over this… maybe I’ll repurchase it in the future.

Duri Rejuvacote: Helped with nail growth but it wasn’t anything major.

Alterna Bamboo Volume Shampoo & Conditioner: Gave great volume and made my wavy hair look great.

Bumble & Bumble Hairdresser Shampoo & Conditioner x2: Smells sooo good. I’ve got a couple more samples left and will consider purchasing this once I use up some hair care stuff.

Phyto Pythovolume Volumizing Conditioner: Made my skin really soft and provided great volume.

 

Not for me, wouldn’t repurchase:

Leaders Insultion Sheet Mask AC Clear x 2, Illuminating, Coconut Biomask Tomato: Alright masks, didn’t notice much difference in my skin.

Leaders Insolution Pore Clinic Strip: I still have a couple more left of these and I will use them up, but I’ve decided not to repurchase them.

Algenist Triple-Action Micropolish & Peel: Irritated my skin.

Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peel: Really nice peel, but I have other alpha hydroxy products that I prefer.

Josie Maran Bear Naked Nail Wipes & Butter London Scrubbers: I prefer using an liquid nail polish remover with a cotton pad. These took off polish OK but nothing special.

Exuviance Ultra Restorative Cream: Too much for my combo skin.

Jack Black Deep Dive Glycolic Cleanser: Dried out my skin too much.

Marc Jacobs Daisy, Desigual Sex, Valentino Valentina, Cartier Baiser Vole, See by Chloe, Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet, Tom Ford Noir: I have too much perfume so I’m not purchasing any at the moment, but the Dior & Cartier stood out.
