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 am laughing about the Origins overnight mask. I opened mine so long ago, and it's still kicking. I may resolve to using it elsewhere at some point!

Re: Empties

Likewise, I thought for sure that the overnight mask would be the first thing I'd use up ... this was a year ago. @notcreative @mychanelly

Re: Empties

It was about a year ago that I opened it, I think. I remember opening it as the weather was changing. How is there still so much left? Is someone filling it back up when I sleep?

I don't have any photos because empty packaging sitting around drives me nuts (I tried saving in a plastic bag next to my vanity but threw it out 3 days later) but here are my recent empties!

 

Clinique Take the Day Off remover - Just finished my 15th bottle or something. This is one of those products that I have no idea how many I've purchased because it just doesn't get any better than this!

 

Too Cool for School Egg Mousse Soap cleanser - used this as my AM cleanser for the last 6ish months? One bottle lasted forever and I liked how gentle it was. Moved onto something else already but would repurchase in the future!

 

Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Moisture Conditioner - This was a repurchase in a larger size (largest with the pump) and I've moved back to my Evolvh Conditioner which I actually don't like as much as I remember. I'd imagine I'll got back to the Alterna once I'm done my two bottles of Evolvh!

 

Odacite Jojoba Beads Exfoliant (deluxe sample) - I got this with an order of Odacite serum samples, and while I like jojoba for my skin, this just didn't do much for me. The jojoba wax beads didn't feel like they did anything. Wouldn't purchase the full size. 

 

Shu Uemura Anti/Oxi Cleansing Oil - This is great at removing my face makeup in preparation for cleansing. Can't comment on how well it removes eye makeup since I always use my Clinique makeup remover to remove eye makeup. Lathers well and good first oil cleansing step! I've since moved onto Skin Food's Black Sugar cleansing oil but would consider repurchasing in the future!

 

LUSH Ro's Argan Body Conditioner - I bought this mainly for the scent, I went in Lush looking for the Rose Jam shower gel/perfume but both were LE and sold out. The sales lady said this was the same scent, which is true.... but after using a couple of times iin the shower the scent faded a little and smelled different. Also, the conditioner didn't do anything for my skin. Just feels like I had a layer of residue on my skin and really didn't keep it moisturized. I would be better applying body oil coming out of the shower! Took me forever to finish a tub of this and I won't repurchase. I will be buying the Rose Jam shower gel this year during the holidays though!

 

Ouai Treatment Mask (1 foil) - Just used this in the bath after using clarifying shampoo to remove hard water residue, and I love the smell! Hair feels very nice, will see how it feels after it dries. May repurchase depending on results.

I feel the same, I just can't keep around the empty packaging! I live in a small enough space as it is.

Oh gosh no, it's for August and SeptemberSmiley Happy.  I couldn't find the energy to lay out my stuff last month.  BetterSmiley Happy

Re: Empties

This is very impressive! It's such a great feeling of accomplishment to know you've made a huge dent in these!! I never remember to save my empties and I need to do this one of these days. Way to go! Smiley Happy

Re: Empties

Yeah, it's cool to see the progress at the end of the month. The saving empties has almost become an obsessive thing for me now.  I get excited when something starts getting low.  

Re: Empties

So much stuff!!! Is that full size davines conditioner? It takes me years to get through one of those!

Re: Empties

It was so awesome throwing out a whole bag of used up stuff!  And no, it was a travel sized one.  For some reason we have three travel sizes on the go.  I don't find it moisturizing enough for my hair anymore so it was repurposed as shave gel. 

Re: Empties

Wow! You did great! So many foils.

Thanks, I've finally reached the point where I only have a few foundation samples left to use up.  I think I'm going to start using some of the stuff I actually purchased now.  It's time that stuff gets love.  

Re: Empties

Was this a single month? Great job.

Re: Empties

No, I missed August so things piled up someSmiley Happy.   There was no room in the bag for October so I had to do the photoshoot.

I had the same question.  Should have read down further.  Even still this is QUITE impressive.  I'm especially in awe of all your foils!  I've definitely made much less progress on mine since I started traveling as much.

Re: Empties

image.jpegLoved:

Nia24 Skin Strengthening Complex (3rd bottle!, I'm going to take a little break from it for now but I will probably go back)

Blue Lizard Baby Sunscreen

 

No thanks:

Not Your Mother's Clean Freak Dry Shampoo: Didn't do anything for absorbing oil. 

 

Everything else was kinda meh... I liked the Burberry Fresh Glow but I don't know if I'm actually going purchase a full size. 

 

 

Re: Empties

We only purchased Blue Lizard Sunscreen for years. Then it became so hard to find here, and I switched to Neutrogena. It is a great sunscreen. 

Re: Empties

I used to get it on drugstore.com but now with that going away I'm panicking. This is my go to sunscreen for the beach and physical activity that doesn't break me out! Which Neutrogena did you guys switch to?

I did not even know they carried it. I used to get it at my local Walgreen's. Then, they stopped carrying it. Since Walgreen's seems to have picked up some of the items Drugstore online used to carry, I wonder if they will have it again.
