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.
Neutrogena oil free eye makeup remover(I always keep a back up!)
Caudalie Vinosource Sorbet(I've been living off samples. Finally purchased during the skincare event)
First Aid Beauty Red Clay Mask
Loreal Extreme Repair shampoo & conditioner
Loreal Volume Filler shampoo & conditioner
PTR Cucumber Mask
Herbal Essence Body Wash
Generic Nail Polish Remover
Swisspers cotton rounds
Clean & Clear Night Calming face wash(allergicccc!)
ELF exfoliating makeup remover wipes(I used to love these because they were so cheap but ugh now they smell so chemically and leave residue like you will not believe!)
It's a detox deep cleaning "peel off" mask. I used it one night and my pores cleared out and tightened up you almost could see them. Im working through a couple more masks before I will let myself but a full size of this.

I love They're Real makeup remover, too. It shocked me, because I hate the liner and the mascara. I ordered it as a sample from Sephora to get a mini, but it was substituted. It is too big to travel with, but I like it for home.
I've been too lazy to take pics and post, but I love viewing you guys' empties!
Just a reminder (sorry if I am broken record) - Origins will take back ALL of your empties -- from any brand! At their freestanding stores, and SOME of their department store (Macy's) locations! I save all mine in Victoria's Secret bags, then when the bag is full I use ti as an excuse to go to the mall.
They recycle lots and lots of types of things, more than I can put in my curbside.
Here's what it says on their website:
All returned packing is sent back to a central location where products will be recycled or used for energy recovery.
Bring your cosmetic empties into an Origins retail store near you!"

I think I'll try those sephora masks. I keep hearing great things about them. I love the shiseido eye cream as well! I bought it immediately after trying the samples but am trying to get through my eye cream samples first before breaking into it. Torture!!!
The eye pods are amazing!
I love those eye pods but only break them out on special occasion. I'm going to make myself make them last until the next holiday sale.
I'd say the Sephora masks are OK. They're more fun and mildly moisturizing than a really serious treatment. Good for everyday/every week routines. But I'll still buy 'em. I bought a set during the holiday sale that was essentially buy 5, get 1 free. There's a similar deal with a promo code (I don't know if it's still active or active in Canada). MASKLOVE: buy 4, get 1 free.
I keep my samples organized in labeled ziplocs in two little Rubbermaid drawers, and the drawers were having a hard time closing, so I had to use some up and give others away. And all the mascaras here were ones I opened in January but hated so much they went immediately in the trash pile.
