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

I like the idea of taking a picture of it all at the end of the trip so maybe I'll do that. Last time I tried to note in my phone what I used but that feels more time consuming.

Re: Empties

Ive always loved checking out what everyone else uses up and decided to try collecting empties to motivate myself to use items I already have instead of buying more all the time.  I dream of being someone who only has one of an item going at a time that she loves, alas I love new things!  I thought I had hardly used anything in January so kept going into February, so this is two months worth of empties. 

 

Will or have re purchased

Good but not amazing, I will re buy the philosophy and shampoo/conditioner but in different scents I'm sure

Re: Empties

Are those OH and JM oils from the 2014 holiday mini oil kit? I ask because I am slowly using mine up as well. I think I bought the kit in early 2015 on sale, didn't touch them at all for a year, and have just recently opened the kit. In other news, I am very dumb and shouldn't be trusted with money.

Re: Empties

The OH is from a different kit, but the JM as well as the Clairins and L'Ocitanne are from that kit.  I'm always a sucker for the Sephora kits but they tend to sit around before I get to using everything.  I still have two of the OH oils that I haven't touched from other value sets!

Re: Empties

I used up so many things in February that not everything would fit in one photo. Many loves this month and lots of empties overall so I would say February was a success Smiley Happy Let me know if you want details on anything.

Great empties! What did you think of the Farmacy brightening mask and how is its texture/feel compared to other hydrogel masks? I've had my eye on those for a while now.

Re: Empties

I received a 3-pack compliments of Farmacy a few months ago and really like them. I only have 1 mask left. They are absolutely soaked in product which is great. The only downside in my opinion is that the hole for your lips isn't big enough.

 

I haven't tried any other hydrogel masks so I can't compare.

Re: Empties

I don't know how, for a month where I was mostly grieving and depressed and using next to nothing, I ended up getting through all of this product. I may have had a strong start to the month and I think some of these items I used the last few days...who knows.

These are from the month of February!

Hope you're feeling better, njattana.

Quite an impressive stash of empties you have there!

How did you like those I'm Real masks?

Re: Empties

What did you think of the OH Powerpeel? I have gone through 2 of them now and I really love them!

It's good stuff, Heartsmyface was the one that introduced me to it and I've been addicted ever since.

Re: Empties

Here are my empties from Feb! Slowly but surely getting through my foil stash.

KS Eradikate
Fresh Age Delay Cream (felt heavy and greasy, but it was nice for those drier winter nights)
All other PC foils except for the Resist Mattifying fluid fluid, that was a hate.

Re: Empties

I love that Clinique makeup remover. It's my all time favorite.

Re: Empties

This is my favorite eye and lip make-up remover, I made sure to get the full size once this travel size ran out! Easy removal, no eye stinging and it doesn't taste terrible. Smiley Happy

Re: Empties

My first empties post! I had been collecting empties until I finished the UD foundation. It was a long time coming. I didn't keep any foils because all of mine were sticky and gross, and I was too lazy to rinse them off.

- Tatcha Luminous Dewy Spray (will def purchase the full size and have already traded for one)
- UD All Nighter (will purchase a full size of this too. I love facial sprays).
- UD Vitamin B6 Spray (I want to buy a full size of this too, but how many sprays can you have?)
- FAB Radiance Pads (will repurchase after I try the N.i.p pads)
- Marcelle Hydra C 24H Energizing Hydrating Gel (bought a full size. This is my fave moisturizer)
- OH Truth Serum
- UD Naked Skin Foundation (I really like this. The finish is great and gives the amount of coverage I like, but the color match isn't perfect and this was the lightest color. I had it for a really long time so I'm not ready to buy a new one.)

- Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water

- Diorshow Maximizer Lash Primer
- Loccitane shower oil
- Sephora Micellar Water (really great at getting makeup off but is waaaaay to perfumed for my eyes to handle. Will not repurchase)

Absolutely not

Have you tried the N.i.p & Fab pads?

Any thoughts on them?

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

Wow! I am so impressed that you've used up your UD foundation. I use mine like every other day and I'm not even 1/4 way done yet. 

 

Looks like you loved a lot of things this month Smiley Happy

 

 

Re: Empties

Don't be too impressed, it's a little over a year old haha. 

Re: Empties

Sticky empties are why I keep mine in a cheap Sephora tote bag (one of the holiday ones that's almost paper but not quite). Then I don't have to worry about product residue because they're only touching each other and a bag I can throw out if it ever gets gross.

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

I keep mine in one of the tall Sephora bags. It's the perfect size and like you said, can easily be replaced if it gets too gross from the products.
