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 Sorry I'm just seeing this! So I noticed I actually love the Oscar Blandi dry shampoo that comes in a yellow bottle which distributes nicely and absorbs all my oil.

 

This brown bottle felt really thick going on and didn't absorb. It left my hair feeling sticky and tacky at the roots.

 

Other people rave about this version though, so I think I'm in the minority!

In your loves you have the sephora brush cleanser. Do you like it for a beauty blender?

@tuinamaster SO sorry I'm just seeing your comment! I LOVE it for the beauty blender. I think it works just as well, if not better, than the Beauty Blender solid version.

 

My favorite part about this cleanser is it comes with a little silicone pad to really deeply clean my brushes.

 

It's also nice that it's a little cheaper than the BB version.

Re: Empties

Haha, your stash looks like mine. I have been contemplating just throwing them away because I am embarrassed I allowed myself to accumulate so much trash Hahaha! 

Re: Empties

@MUAStephM Last year I kept forgetting to photograph my empties each month, but I kept collecting them and finally snapped a photo of a giant pile of trash on my dining room table—the entire year's worth.

Re: Empties

@TKLJ Haha! Sounds about right!

I am curious about the CO-Q10 from Avalon Organics. What made it so-so? Was it not moisturizing enough, was something wrong with the scent, or was it something else?

Is that the Paula's Choice BHA Gel? What do you think of that and have you ever tried the liquid? I love the liquid and just ordered another one the day before yesterday. I was going to order a sample of the gel, but it just missed the sample cut. I love that she offers the chance to buy extra samples, but I have too many samples to justify ever buying them. On my next order, I may get a sample of the gel though.

Re: Empties

I love threads like this... I'm a bit compulsive... and I can't stand keeping all my empty bottles/foils for a month so here are my empties for the first half of July.

 

I loved the Amore Pacific enzyme peel, unfortunately it's a bit expensive so I'm not sure when/if I'll buy it again. And I have so many Tatcha samples to go through also. IMG_1684.JPG

Re: Empties

What did you think of the foot mask?

Re: Empties

@darkiceis @JoannaMC wanted to jump in and say, LOVE the foot masks. Definitely recommend trying them. Works great on it's own but really like it after using my clarisonic smart profile pedi attachment too. Did the math, using 1x a week for a year is the same price as 5 pedi's at going rate here, not too shabby!

@CC3616 Thanks for letting me know! Smiley Very Happy

Re: Empties

I also would like to know what you thought of the foot mask! Smiley Happy

Re: Empties

@JoannaMC  I ended up purchasing one and used it after a day at the beach. I have a really really bad dry left foot.  This worked so well my on feeties and it they looked and felt great the next day.  It lasted about 3 days so I am pretty content. I purchased a few more so I can used them consistently to see if there is more of a difference.

Thanks for letting me know, @darkiceis! I am always in search of HG foot products! Smiley Very Happy

@JoannaMC  No problem.  I will also add that after I took the booties off to  massage in the rest of the serum I did not walk. I sat on the couch for about 30 minutes to make sure that I didn not disturb the "absorbing" process.  Smiley Very Happy

Re: Empties

I am not sure... I have tried a couple of others from japan and they all seem to do the same thing. They make my feet soft right after but the next day it is back to normal. This time my feet look a bit better even if I used it 2-3 days ago... But my feet are super cracked so I have yet to find something that will really help. I have the purple one I still need to try.
