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.

Love that coconut body shop cream. Smells great and moisturizes nicely. What did you think?

I think those are great empties.  I need to get better about throwing thing away when they just don't work rather than letting them clutter up my makeup drawers.  Is that the PTR Camu Camu serum?  That was my gateway into serums.  Lasted forever and really did seem to improve my skin, but I'm not sure if they reformulated it but the new version I got to replenish it seemed so different I returned it.

Re: Empties

I'm impressed by the empty Clinique pump.  I feel like I'm going to have mine until the next ice age.

Re: Empties

I have been anxiously working on that thing for-EVER!  

 

I have a few new day creams I've been waiting to try, but told myself I couldn't until I finished this.

Re: Empties

I have SO many empties this month!  I made it my goal to use as many foils as possible while I was traveling one week, so that helped a lot with my sample stash!

Wow!  Super impressive empties.  You really made it through a lot!

Re: Empties

Love the Soap & Glory face wash!

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

I got a sample of Soap & Glory face wash & really like it too.

Re: Empties

What are your thoughts on that Lush Argan Body Conditioner? I almost picked it up a few months ago but thought any moisturizing body wash or lotion would essentially be doing the same thing?

Re: Empties

I buy it mostly for the scent.  I do think a good quality body lotion does a better job at moisturizing than a body conditioner, although I will say it helps to use both when I have extremely dry skin.  

Re: Empties

Wow! Nice work!

Re: Empties

[ Edited ]

You did great. I have a foil of that BHA I was looking forward to trying. If it did not do much for you in that big size, the foil is probably going to be useless.

Re: Empties

I lost about 3/4 of it to leaking, so I wouldn't necessarily assume the foil is useless.  That said, I'm not about to pay to try it again!

Re: Empties

Yeah, I hate when containers are faulty. Even when they're samples, it makes me reluctant to buy the full size for fear it will have the same problem.

I forgot to list out the names before filling in my reviews, so let me know if you have any questions.

Re: Empties

Nice empties!  I have those tiny shampoos and conditioners hanging out somewhere.  I always steal hotel samples and then I swear they just sit in my sample stash!

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

Unless I hate the hotel offerings, like Shine at Sheraton, I tend to take home all the products. Some I use faster than others, but I always get to all of them eventually. We actually just stayed at Sheraton over the weekend, and I took the rest of the product. Once they're opened, the cleaning staff does not do anything productive with them. 

Re: Empties

How was the deborah lippman?  I'm slowly testing nail remover wipes for travel...

Re: Empties

i got a sample of Cutex nail polish remover wipes that I love! They are thick, and easily took off polish from both hands with one wipe - I was impressed.

Re: Empties

I got a sample of those in a recent Target Beauty Box. I will try that next time I paint my nails. 

Re: Empties

That must be where I got them - good thing I did - now I have new things to buy at Target Smiley Wink
