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.
@sparklekai what do you thing of Devacurl styling cream vs coconut styler? I've tried both (as standalone styler) and neither worked for me. If I paired it with the ultra defining gel the styling cream worked well- but I just didn't feel it was necessary. Have you tried shea moisture line at all? Their coconut hibiscus smoothie is awesome for a cream styler.
i like the combo of the styling cream with the gel. i haven't tried the coconut one yet! devacurl is no longer available in canada so i had a hard time getting it! thankfully one of my friends smuggled me some
i haven't tried the shea moisture because i don't know where to get it!! but now i'm going to look into it!
I also like those two products together. I tend to also spray my hair with a sea salt spray at the end and the comb of things seems to work really well for my hair.
I tried the sample of the coconut cream recently and really loved it so I'm probably going to switch to that once I use up my current styling cream.
like - all except for the following
eh - dermal sheet mask; glam glow cleansers; origin stuff Peter Thomas Roth algae mask
no - Laura mercier polish; urban decay deslick

May 2016 Empties
May was obviously sheet masks month
John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Visibly Deeper Colour Deepening Shampoo : Wow ! This is my new favorite shampoo. It made the color of my hair looks deeper than usual after one single use. Another thing I really loved is that after using this shampoo, my hair did not get oily nearly as fast as before. It also left my hair looking healthy and shiny. Finally, it did not stain my shower and my hands. * Already repurchased it.
The Face Shop Real Nature Face Mask Rice x 2 : This is my holy grail sheet mask to brighten up my skin. It does help with dark circles and the results are long lasting on my skin. I have been using my rice sheet masks carefully since I am abroad and cannot buy it here, but ideally I’d use it once a week. * Have some backups, will rebuy for sure in the future !
The Face Shop Real Nature Face Mask Cucumber : This was my first time using this mask and it didn’t dissapoint. My skin looked beautiful and felt extremely fresh after using it. It didn’t leave my face oily and my skin was actually looking brighter. * Don’t have any backup but I will repurchase it when I am back in Canada.
The Face Shop Real Nature Face Mask Lemon x 2 : Awesome mask ! It does make my undereyes look brighter, as well as the rest of my face. My skin also feels very moisturized after using. I like to switch between this mask and the rice one from the same line. * Have a few backups left, will buy again when I’m back in Canada.
The Face Shop Real Nature Face Mask Green Tea x 2 : Awesome mask to use when you feel tired. It makes my skin feels rejuvenated in a way and as a bonus, I found out that it helps controlling oily skin without drying it out. The smell is pleasant and the Real Nature sheet masks are a good fit for my eye area. * Have a few backups left, will buy again when I’m back in Canada.
Sephora Ultra Moisturizing & Brightening Rose Eye Mask : I wasn’t sure about this product at first because it is a bit expensive for an eye mask, however it did a wonderful job ! The patches were too big but it did stick to my face without falling off, so in the end it wasn’t too much of a problem. It did brighten my undereyes and it felt very moisturizing. * I will buy again in the future.
The Face Shop Clean Face Soothing Face Mask For Oily Skin : I used that mask after I noticed that my skin was a bit more oily than usual and that I had a few little pimples that appeared between my eyebrows. It helped to get my skin back to normal and to significantly reduce the pimples. This mask does a wonderful job at controlling oily skin and breakouts. * Will repurchase it when I am back in Canada.
The Face Shop Real Nature Face Mask Pomegranate : This mask targets mostly skin elasticity problems which I don’t have yet. However, it left my skin feeling and looking good. I would have to use it more often to notice if it has any anti-aging properties as it claims. * I have a few backups to use and will probably rebuy these masks in the future.
Ole Henriksen The Clean Truth Cleansing Cloths Brightening : This was the first time I ever bought a big package (30 cloths) of this product and I must say that I was quite disappointed. While it does give great results (very bright and healthy looking skin), remove makeup quite well and did not irritate my skin, the cloths became completely dry after only a few uses. Even though it had a plastic closure, it was impossible to use after a short time. * I would repurchase the 10 cloths travel size as I did in the past, but not the 30 cloths packaging.
I love those wipes. Too bad they went dry on you. I put my wipes inside a larger sealed bag, usually a ziploc. I do not use them fast enough, even in the 5 pack size.
That's too bad about the cloths. Those are my favorite and I tend to get the large pack. I guess I've gotten lucky because mine have always stayed pretty moist.
Love all the face masks!

April 2016 Empties
What a slow month .. Hopefully the first and last one for this year !
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 (Sample) : Wonderful product ! It really hydrates well and it’s non sticky. It’s a big plus that it has sun protection too. You don’t have to reapply constantly too, unlike some other lip balms. The only con is that the product is so creamy that you always have to be careful when using it. It breaks easily and I guess it would melt quite fast on a hot summer day. * I will rebuy it in the future. Have no backups for the moment.
The Face Shop Intense Moisture MasCream Sheet : I used this because my skin was itchy and sensible because of allergies. It is soaked with cream so it was much more moisturising than regular cotton sheet masks. The product absorbed really quickly in my skin and it calmed it. The smell is pleasant and the mask fit was great. * I already have backups of it and will buy again in the future.
The Face Shop Real Nature Face Mask Aloe : That is a lifesaver mask that I like to use once in a while, when needed. This helped to calm my skin during allergies and to make it look noticeably less red. It also hydrates the skin really well. * Already have backups of this and I will repurchase in the future.
The Face Shop Real Nature Face Mask Avocado : This was my first time using that sheet mask and I must say that it was very hydrating ! It is designed for dry skin. I used it when my skin felt dry because of allergies. It absorbed quickly into my skin and was not irritating. * I would buy again in the future, especially for fall & winter time. I don’t have backups for the moment.
The Face Shop Real Nature Face Mask Honey : This mask made my skin feel hydrated and soft. It did not irritate my face and it didn’t make my skin oily after using. * Even though it is not the mask who gives the most spectacular results on my skin, I would repurchase if it’s available at my store during a future sale. I don’t have any backups at the moment.
Etude House I Need You Lemon Sheet Mask : Finally finished my stash of Etude House lemon sheet masks ! As I wrote in my previous Empties posts, the brightening effect of that sheet mask wasn’t spectacular at all and didn’t last very long either. The mask didn’t fit my eye area at all and did sting my eyes at times. * Needless to say, I won’t repurchase these ones. The Face Shop ones work a lot better with my skin.
The Face Shop Real Nature Face Mask Mung Bean : Bought this & used this in hope that it would help with breakups, but sincerely I didn’t see any difference after using it. It does not irritate, but that’s about it. It didn’t help controil oily skin either. * Have backups to use, but I don’t plan on repurchasing later. I much prefer to use The Face Shop Clean Face Soothing Face Mask For Oily Skin and will rebuy this one instead.
Secret Baby Powder Roll-On Antiperspirant/Deodorant : While this product helped with odor, my armpits still got wet once in a while. It was quite uncomfortable and the product also made my armpits itchy occasionally. * I have another one to use, but I won’t repurchase in the future.
