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

Impressive! Truly empty!

Impressive to finish off so much makeup.

Re: Empties

the ole system is really nice!  I haven't been using them cause they're nicer and light in the summer but I got around twelve of the perk boxes and have been through three of them with much happiness!  I have dry skin so a little extra moisturizer after the sheer transformation is needed.

Re: Empties

I'm so amazed that y'all are able to hang on to your empties!  My OCD kicks in right away and I have to recycle the bottles, jars, packaging, etc... :smileyhappy:

 

The only ones I can hang on to are the empty Lush pots so that I can take them back to the store.

Re: Empties

i keep a sephora bag from the vib sale last year with 2 small gift bags (1 for foils, 1 for deluxe samples and then full size roam free) inside under my vanity.  as i finish something i put them directly in there.  that way i can't see them but i can hold them for empties!

i keep mine in a marc Jacobs shoe bag hung on the inside of my closet door.   Out of sight but super convenient:smileyhappy: 

Re: Empties

I agree with the lovely Sparkle.  I have terrible OCD.  However, I have a large bag under the sink that I only see when I open the cabinets.  Out of sight.  Out of mind.  It works for me.

Re: Empties

Thats why I didn't have a picture, haha! I don't save much if it is not usable, so this thread is fascinating to me!

Re: Empties

Boring, I know, but I finished an entire bottle of the Tresseme Smooth and Silky Shampoo and Conditioner! I never commit to just one shampoo and conditioner but I already have a new set of this in my shower - its awesome!

Lots of great items.  

 

That big bottle of Marc Anthony only gave you one use or it was so terrible that you could not bring yourself to use it again?

Re: Empties

This is the first time I've ever saved any empties, but I'm on a mission to use up products in the next few months!!

Have already repurchased/will repurchase:

Origins Checks & Balances Face Wash - this is probably my 5th bottle, I love how it doesn't make my skin feel stripped

Lush It's Raining Men - I have the bar soap right now but I adore this scent

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion - also probably my 5th bottle

Lancome Hypnose Mascara - I've probably gone through 10 tubes of this

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray - 3rd bottle!

Dr. Dennis Gross Purifying Booster

 

So/so:

Lush R&B - I've used this a few times, didn't finish this pot before it's expiration date

Fresh Rose Face Mask - this felt super nice but takes a lot of work to rinse off

Bamboo Anti-Breakage Thermal Protectant Spray - my hair's been breaking more than usual since I started using this, not really a great endorsement for the product

Body Shop Shea Shower Cream - good to shave with

Lush Dream Cream - I don't love the smell, but moisturizes well

Dr Dennis Gross Clinical Concentrate Radiance Booster - I'm on the fence about this one

Dr Dennis Gross Furulic & Retinol Moisturizer - this is a really good moisturizer, there are just a couple I like better

 

Would not repurchase:

Murad Acne Body Wash - very expensive, doesn't really do much

Origins Modern Friction - I do like this and have used a couple tubes but have since found things I like better

Body Shop Shea Lip Treatment - sooooo gross

Murad Hydro Dynamic Moisturizer - just a generic moisturizer to me, no scent which is the only bonus

Dr Dennis Gross All in One Cleansing Foam - left my skin a little too dry for my preference

Dior Hydra Life Eye Cream - this is not awesome, it has HA but that's about it

There is a Lush next to my new Sephora.  I plan on exploring the brand a little more in 2015, because I love the only thing I've tried so far.  It's Raining Men sounds like the perfect product to start with.
