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.
Ever since I started reading these posts last week I started getting empties like crazy! (Or I just always did and I never noticed.) It IS annoying to run out of expensive stuff all at the same time though.
I was going to wait until the end of the month to post them all at once but I'm strangely excited to start posting them already? Haha. I'll probably take pictures tomorrow.
I tried the It's a 10. It has only been one day, so it is far from empty. It makes my hair look and feel nicer than usual, so I am a fan. The only con is it does not detangle as much as my current leave in, which is a big deal to me. My hair tangles so easily and falls out in patches when the tangles get bad.
Which leave in treatments have you tried so far? I'm always on the search for something new and better…and it's a 10 does nothing for me at all. I use a leave in spray every time I wash my hair, so its a big deal!
Re: Empties[ Edited ]
This is the one I've been using for years. I bought it originally when my older son first started getting longer hair. I get it from my son's hair salon, but you can buy it online as well. The stylist suggested I use it too, and I did. It detangles very well, so I keep getting it. My hair looked better with the It's a 10, but it barely detangled at all.
I'm hitting the bottom of:
-Ole Henriksen Truth Serum (is there ANY surprise of this???? )
-Origins No Puffery Eye Roller
-Anthony Logistics Blood Orange Lip Balm (believe this one is now discontinued, noooooooo)
I've already had to replace my AL Glycolic Face Wash with a new bottle, my bf is running low on Philosophy's Microdelivery Face Scrub and the PTR Resurfacing Scrub, looks like a Sephora trip is in the plans for this weekend!
Wow ladies, super glad I'm in this thread. I've been doing empties for over a year now and have never actually cut open my tube-type products to see what is left in them-- but after reading this thread today I decided to give it a try. I keep the items you can't recycle traditionally and drop them off at Origins a couple times a year, so I had some of my empties still. Opened three deluxe moisturizer samples- Philosophy Clear Days Ahead, Dr. Jart Ceramadin and Caudalie Sorbet and holy crap- I got enough out of the three of those to probably last a month!! Many thanks to those who talk about cutting open their tubes, never realized the large amount I was wasting!
Since being a part of this thread I'm trying to be more conscious of finishing a product. I recently wanted to finish my first chapstick...EVER! I'm having a hard time with this because for some reason I hit bottom on it a month ago. I never noticd but literally half of Fresh Sugar lip balm is inside the tube! It's always worth a shot right
I just discovered that when I got to the (fake?) bottom of my fresh rose balm! I've been using a little lip brush to scoop the product out, hopefully will finish this one up this month too Not that I don't have another 2-3 backups of the mini fresh rose...
Same except mine is the full size! urghhhh I have the brush set right in front of it so I can scop it out! I really hope I finish it in time for Jule empties! lol
I have 2 other full size back ups plus 3 minis and the other 2 believe from the recent fresh promotion.
Balm for days!!! lol
I've been traveling non-stop for the past few months and here are my empties for the months of May & June:
Only thing I liked here was the Bliss. I already repurchased this. It doesn't give you a 6 pack but it does firm and tone that area especially if combined w/ exercise.
Thought everything else was ok. Vaseline has a good concept but wasnt moisturizing enough for me.
Never use wipes but I forgot my cleanser on this trip. I'm glad I got these, they werent too bad. Loved everything else!
I bought the ojon hair mask but unfortunately got the wrong one! I got the that has added antioxidants I believe but I prefer this one.
Love everything except for the cotton pads, Benefit mascara and the candle on the right corner. Caudalie, Dior, Kilian & Dyptique were a big thumbs up! Michael Aram candle was amazing as per usual!
Dyptique Candle I loved so much, was from Christmas. It smelled of cider and pine. It was amazing I'm sad to see it go but it's summer time! lol
Hated that Soap & Glory Shimmer thing. It wasn't flattering at all. Didn't finish it but had to can this since it turned yellow.
Hated that Ren cleanser. Made me break out.
Liked the It's a 10 but I'm getting tired of it! I made the huge mistake of buying this in the jumbo size. I've been using it for 3, yes that's right 3 whole years.
Glamglow was ok but I prefer the black one.
Loved the beauty mask diary and the Korres body wash even though I felt like it was a bit drying towards the end of it.
Kate Somerville is always <3 for me!
L'oreal Shampoo makes my highlights look amazing!
Fresh I got this lotion in a set and it smells good and very moisturizing <3 it!
Roto love this stuff for when I'm traveling, my eyes get super dry and this is the only thing that has ever wrked for me!
Dr Teals love this soak for those days I'm feeling sore from working out
Lol you weren't kidding when you said in an earlier comment that we used similar products! I agree with with all of your mini reviews except for the Exfolikate. I just couldn't get over the smell. I agree with the Vaseline Spray, great concept but not enough for my dry skin. I heard the St. Ives is supposed to be more hydrating. I wanna give that one a try since I it's such a pain to try to moisturizer my back with regular lotions.
I actually just picked up the St Ives! Excited to try it Wont be in my next empties since Im trying to go through 2 already opened lotions -.-.
I don't mind the smell of it but then again I'm a chef and I get used to smells fairly quick since I have no other choice! lol
Ack, sadly I've been on a no-shower-gel no-buy for eternity and probably have a long way to go... I used to have Bath & Body Works obsession and have a HUGE stockpile of shower gel, butters, lotion, etc. I've been making my way through but probably have enough to last me at least another year!
