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 should get a sample of hourglass veil. I've heard good things about it.

Re: Empties

I love the Hourglass mineral veil too!

Re: Empties

Finally cleared out the rest of my empties bag!

Love (have repurchased or will repurchase):

Lush Celebrate Lotion

Belif Moisturizing Bomb

TokyoMilk Dark Tainted Love

 

Like (may or may not repurchase):

AmorePacific Moisture Bound Masque

Bite Lip Gloss in Strangefruit

Replica Beach Walk

BareMinerals Stroke of Light (almost a dislike, but could try another sample) 

Elizabeth+James Nirvana White x2 (not bad, but I have so many samples that I'm getting tired of it)

Stila Smudgestick in Purple Tang (this particular color had alot of glitter in it, so would like to try other colors)

TruBeauty Spatula (liked the square tip on this scoop, but it snapped off)

 

Dislike (no plans to purchase):

Thierry Mugler Angel (too masculine for me)

SK-II Facial Essence (didn't notice any difference, didn't like the scent)

I too really love the Lush Celebrate Lotion.  I like the SK-II facial essence but I feel like my skincare routine has gotten so pricy at this point I can't decide if I really want to spend the $$$ on it.  Trying Raw Sauce next.

Re: Empties

 Does the Belif Moisturing Bomb have a scent?

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

It's sort of a light herbal.  A bit medicinal, but in a pleasant way.

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

It might have had a light floral or powdery scent, but nothing I recall as being too strong or remarkable one way or the other.

Re: Empties

i got one of those spatulas in my stocking but now I can't find it!

Re: Empties

Yayy for Lush empties! I'm glad you really liked it. I received a tub and am looking forward to using it. The smell is great!

 

I had the same thoughts about the SKII. Did you get your's in the SoKo to Tokyo set? I was very disappointed it didn't live up the hype :/

Re: Empties

I love the lemony smell of Celebrate.  I bought so many tubs last year in the BOGO sale, and I'm still using them!

 

The SKII sample came from the VIBGLOW promo bag.  I was glad I didn't like it because I know how much a full bottle costs!  Smiley Happy

Re: Empties

That lip gloss is completely gone - impressive!!

I tried a sample of YSL Touche Eclat the other day too & loved it! Great coverage and the color was perfect for me.

Here are my December empties!

 

Repurchase:

Lush- Finished a bathbomb (I forget which one), bubble bar (Dorothy? Over the rainbow?) and bath melt (mango). Will definitely repurchase the mango bath melt.

 

Excedrin intensive repair hand cream- I'm on my second tube now. It saves my hands during the winter!

 

Boscia detoxifying black cleanser- I really enjoyed this! I have several travel size backups in my stash. The warm sensation when putting it on my face is really nice.

 

Maybe repurchase:

Caudalie gentle cleansing milk- enjoyed it but I have other face cleansers to get through before I purchase anything. This was very gentle and I enjoyed it.

 

Klorane dry shampoo with oat milk- This was my first time trying dry shampoo. Once I started using dry shampoo I found my curly hair became healthy. I enjoyed this but am going to try others.

 

Tony Moly aloe face mask sheet- I have a love / hate relationship with sheet masks. I thought this one was very wet and soothed my skin. But my face must be small because this mask was huge on me.

 

 

Will not repurchase:

PTR Blemish Buffing Beads- used it primary during summer months after my spin classes. Seemed to work, but I went through it quickly.

 

OH Aloe Vera Deep Cleanser- I thought this smelled like nail polish remover. I only used it once and dumped it because I couldn't stand the smell.

 

Buxom lip cream in Dolly- It made my lips go numb all day and I did not like that sensation!

 

Josie Maran mascara- I like bold lashes and this did not give me the volume and length I desired. Would be good for someone who likes very natural looking lashes.

 

Sephora Rose sleeping mask- enjoyed the rose scent, but did not give me a lot of moisture. It says it is 1x use, but I was able to get a few uses out of it!

 

OH grease relief cleansing cloths- I thought these cloths were really dry and didn't do much for me after workouts.

Re: Empties

I don't post in this thread because I hate saving up empty bottles & packets, but I always read it because I love the little reviews that you all do. Anyway, because of that, now any time I finish *anything* I get all excited. This morning while making lunches it was a bag of baby carrots and a bag of pretzels. I felt so triumphant Smiley Wink.

Re: Empties

Everything I've used up over the past couple of months or so:

Spoiler
Will repurchase:
Angels on Bare Skin cleanser
Eau Roma Water toner
Beauty Blender Cleanser -- this sample really impressed me! 

Likes:
The Sacred Truth mask
Brazened Honey mask

Did not like/Will not repurchase:
Belief True Aqua Bonb
Philosophy When Hope is Not Enough serum
Celestial face moisturizer

 

I also used a lot of Lush bath bombs/bubble bars but as they melt away and I couldn't take an "empty" picture of them, I made a collage showcasing them all Smiley Happy

No spoiler b/c I liked them all XD

 

Re: Empties

I just got the AOBS, Eau Roma Toner, and Celestial and so far I like them! I hope they will work for my skin.

Re: Empties

I've tried a lot of things from LUSH, but surprisingly none of the black pots you posted above. On another note, love the sex bomb!
