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.

Re: Empties

@notcreative They moisturize my undereye area better than any other eye sheet mask I've tried. They also seem to pep up tired eyes, although my dark circles and eye bags are too much for any product to truly tame. That said, I don't know that the retinol in them is doing much. I also only use them sporadically; maybe if I used them on a regular schedule, I would see more long-term benefits.

Re: Empties

Thanks. I think I have another sample of them, so I plan to give them another try. My under eye area is so dry (which is funny given how oily my lids are), so I will see if I notice more moisture this time. I think the reason I never notice that is because I ALWAYS add eye and face cream after sheet masks, so I assume they are doing the heavy lifting on moisturizing. I know a lot of people just do the mask and go, but my skin is too dry for that.

Things i loved;

- body shop body butters

- odacite serums

- tata harper purifying mask

 

ok stuff;

- ddg pad

- rad pads

-  fab pads

- nude purify toner

- benefit gimme brow

- farmacy root cell serum 

 

No thanks;

- Sunday Riley blue moon

- verb shampoo conditioner

- facial wipes

- tarte powder

 

Special shoutouts of crap go to the Blue Moon and travel size Farmacy serum.  I could not for the life of me get Blue Moon to work consistently for me, and I'm so glad to be rid of it.  Some days it took off my makeup perfectly and others it left a gross film that made my skin feel so heavy.  The Farmacy serum is alright but the glass bottle cracked in my carry on luggage and spilled all over my quart bag of liquids.  Only I didn't know that was what had cracked and so it kept leaking for the next 5 days.

Great empties as always.

Re: Empties

I've noticed a lot of people love those body butters.  Does the scent linger or is it faint?

Re: Empties

@Elles117 I go through one of the large tubs and one of the minis pretty much every month.

 

I really like some of them and am meh about others.  They do seem to have some variance depending on what your skin type is. 

 

Consistent faves for me are the argan one, the coconut one and the cocoa butter one because the scents are pleasant but not long lasting. 

 

Some of the fruit ones are a bit much.  I tried the raspberry last month or the month before and it was SUPER strong and smelled like fruit punch.  The strawberry was better, with the smell fading away after about 20 minutes.

Thanks! I prefer scents that don't linger so I might check out the coconut one Smiley Happy

Re: Empties

Hard to tell from the picture. Is that the mango body butter? I hate mangos, but I love the way they smell. That is on my list of scents to try.

Re: Empties

Nope, not mango, the small ones are cocoa butter and the large is strawberry Smiley Happy

I love the cocoa butter, but I have not tried strawberry yet either. I probably will at some point.

Re: Empties

Oh, good, I was curious about Blue Moon, this helps, thanks! 

Re: Empties

I'm impressed your Verb bottles held up. The ink on mine kept peeling off in chunks in the shower, and without my contacts in, I couldn't tell why my hand looked like it was molting.

Re: Empties

It's funny you mention that @TKLJ - I noticed I had black stains on my hands every time I used those and the first few times I couldn't for the life of me figure out why...

Great empties.  I am also very impressed you used up a full bronzer!

Re: Empties

@karap03 You finished a giant Laguna?! That deserves a gold medal.And I'm sure you could find someone trading one away if you want another, since it always ends up in GWP bags.

Re: Empties

That was my first thought. I wonder if it is gone or if she tossed it because it's old. Very curious and wish there was a picture of what the pan looks like.

Re: Empties

@notcreativeDarn I should have taken a pic of the inside. It was 95% gone. The very edges still had product but it was getting to the point of not applying on the brush well making application patchy. I love laguna and have moved onto a fresh one.

Some finished products! 😊

 

Love, will repurchase or buy the full size:

Spoiler
Tresemme hairspray... best lightly fragranced and great hold.
Lubriderm lotion....unscented, non greasy favorite lotion.
Shiseido cotton...my fave for removing eye makeup. Does not fall apart.
Besame brightening French vanilla translucent powder...perfect for setting under eye concealer.
Benefit roller lash mascara....gives my lashes length and volume, non smudging yet easy to remove.
Natural Ice original lip balm spf 15......favorite matte unflavored balm, and it's only 99 cents.
Loreal True Match lumi cushion foundation....great coverage and staying power.
Clinique pep start eye cream....excellent fragrance free, and absorbs easily into the skin.
Fresh rose face mask....One of the most effective masks I have tried that moisturized without irritating my sensitive skin.

Did not love:

Spoiler
BBW sweet peach shower gel...did not care for the scent, and it made my skin feel itchy.
Deva curl super cream....the coconut fragrance was too strong for my liking, however the product performed well.
Crack original styling cream.... no detectable fragrance, however the product was difficult to work with and had a tendency to ball up.
Pacifica glow baby face scrub.... this was way too harsh of an exfoliant for my skin, and I did not like the fragrance.
Maybelline super stay better skin concealer...did not conceal well and had an odd fragrance that lingers.
Chanel hydra beauty micro serum......the strong rose fragrance was the dealbreaker, which was a shame because it is an effective serum.
Fresh soy face cleanser.....did not care for the cucumber fragrance, and it made my skin feel dry and tight.
Belif the true cream moisturizing bomb....not for my combo sensitive skin, felt very thick and greasy.
Dior jadore EDT.....does not work with my chemistry.

I've wanted to try that Pacifica, but have not gotten my hands on one yet. Thanks for the heads up, because I hate harsh exfoliants on may face. I am already a picker, so there is enough damage on my skin.
