Oooh, what does this red clay mask do?

Re: Empties

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.

Re: Empties

I'm in love with the replica beach walk scent!  Waiting for the 3x points event.  :smileyhappy:

Re: Empties

I am excited for the 3x points event as well. do you happen to know when it is?

Re: Empties

It's usually in the first two weeks of February which is right in time for valentines day.  I don't know for sure though.  I haven't received anything yet. 

Re: Empties

It starts Feb 5.  I posted a picture of the card I got about it in the Deals thread.

Re: Empties


Re: Empties

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.

Re: Empties

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:


"Bring any cosmetic brand empty container into any Origins retail store & we’ll recycle it for you for FREE.

All returned packing is sent back to a central location where products will be recycled or used for energy recovery.
Since 2009, Origins introduced a program that encouraged its customers to bring their empty previously unrecyclable cosmetic tubes, bottles & jars, etc. - regardless of brand - to their nearest Origins retail store or department store counters. We believe that the more we collect from consumers, the more we can keep cosmetic packaging out of landfills.

Bring your cosmetic empties into an Origins retail store near you!"
You can google Origins Recycling for links to find a store near you that will take your empties.  Okay end of soapbox/good deed for the day :smileywink:.  Back to your reg scheduled programming...

Re: Empties

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! 

Re: Empties

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.

Yeah me too!  They're too expensive for everyday use 

Re: Empties

I am shocked you have any products left after your last entry.

Re: Empties

Seriously. :smileywink:


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.

Re: Empties

Congrats on finishing that shampoo!
