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.

I really want to try that First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair cream, because I have really dry skin. Everyone raves. I think I have a foil that I need to locate.

Re: Empties

I think this is my biggest empties month yet!!

 

Loved/Might repurchase:
Fekkai Shea Butter Conditioner- smells DIVINE

B&BW Pink Grapefruit Anti-Bac Soap

Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara

B&BW Fresh Cotton Wallflowers

Caudalie Vinosource Sorbet- slightly too oily for my skin, won't repurchase but excellent product

Bare Minerals Stroke of Light- LOVED, would repurchase for summer/tanner skin usage, but in my pale months this color isn't quite light enough

Origins Mega Mushroom Mask- loved! You can put this on and actually walk around the house and forget about it! Really comfortable mask, very hydrating.

The Balm Put a Lid on It Eyelid Primer- great primer, still prefer NARS or Benefit over this so far.

Liked:

Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam

Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer

REN Micro Polish Cleanser- love how creamy yet exfoliating this is, the smell not so much.

Fekkai Shea Butter Hair Mask

PTR Mega-Rich Body Lotino & Shower Gel

Soap & Glory Vit C Facial Wash- this was apparently discontinued?

Lea Journeau Hydra-Riche Conditioner

Arangara Olive & Rose Body Lotion

MOX Botanicals Lip Butter

Neutral:

Body Shop Cocoa Butter Creamy Body Wash

Body Shop Vitamin E Hydrating Toner and Moisture Serum- not fond of the smell

Korres Mascara- I think this dried out

Origins Vita-Zing- too dark for me

Body Shop Vit C Eye Reviver Duo

Clinique Take the Day Off- fabulous at removing face makeup, not so great at eye makeup- plus, this would get onto the surface of my eyes and cause blurry vision for about an hour afterward.

L'Occitane Divine Cream- good moisturizer, slightly too greasy for me, definitely not worth the price tag.

Disliked:

Body Shop Vit C Skin Boost- caused breakouts

Smashbox Photo Finish Blemish Control Primer- whiteheads literally within a few hours of putting this on. EEEEK

REN T-Zone Balancing Day Fluid- breakouts!

REN Hydra-Calm Global Protection Cream- too greasy for my skin

 

 

Just mentioning the ones that stood out:

NARS Eyeshadow Primer- very nice! Still can't figure out my #1 eyeshadow primer, but this is definitely a contender :smileyhappy:

Caudalie Hydrating Serum- great, great product. If it had more dark-spot reducing potential, would purchase.

Caudalie Radiance Serum- again, great product but lacked the dark-spot reducing I was looking for. Thankfully the Caudalie Anti-Aging serum does, will probably buy that when my stash runs out.

Clarins Double Serum- ick ick ick greasy mess! This has SO MUCH mineral oil in it, gross!

Sephora Super Supreme Body Butter- this was very luxurious and thick and non-greasy. Wasn't a very appealing scent to me though, would buy if there were some different scent options.

Tata Harper Rejuvingating Serum- could not get past the terrible smell of this stuff. Sadly the scent lasts a long time too.

Kat Von D Makeup Remover Wipes- nice and thick, lots of moisture but stung my eyes like a MOTHER.

Re: Empties

I think you hit the nail on the head with the Caudalie Vinosource Sorbet. It is taking me a while to get through the sample I am currently using, because it just does not sooth my skin type.  I do find it moisturizing (even though it is light) on my dry skin (which is usually very dry).  I have combination skin though, so I do not like the way it feels on my oily skin.

Re: Empties

I truly wish Caudalie would come out with a very lightweight, hydrating but not oily moisturizer, because I adore their products!

Re: Empties

I don't know why it took me so long to say congrats on all your empties - you did some serious work this past month! I'm impressed with how many full size/deluxe size products you went through!

Re: Empties

What kind of hair do you have? I've been dying to try the Fekkai shea butter mask :smileyhappy:

I'm inspired by all your empties! :smileyhappy:

I hated that Fekkai shea butter mask so much that it took me over a year to finish it.  Really, I should have chucked it after 2-3 uses.

Re: Empties

I've got unruly curly hair/ringlets! The line smells absolutely amazing!

 

And thank you! It's very satisfying to get rid of a shoebox + full of items every month, reassures me that I'm actually working through my stash :smileyhappy:

Nice!!

 

I've heard of SO many people talking about the Sunday Riley burning their face! I'm surprised the item hasn't been pulled off the market!

mpolansky

Re: Empties

Yeah I agree - honestly never had anything like that happen before! It was off my face in 10 seconds flat and still burned for the whole night. So bad.

Re: Empties

I know what you mean. Upon the face on fire feeling I quickly washed/scrubbed my face gently yet as vigorously as possible then immediately slapped some moisturizer on it seemed to help a little but my face still slightly tingles. :smileysad: hopefully the feeling goes away soon and I don' t break out too badly, I guess i will know by morning. Good thing I did this on a Saturday and not on a Monday!
