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

You had a great summer of emptying.

Re: Empties

I love it!  I have so many sample size items, as well, which was my motivation for posting in this thread.  I really needed to start burning through my current stash, instead of constantly acquiring more!

Re: Empties

This is what I'm trying to do :smileyhappy: They all take so much space too, and it actually saves you money to go through samples first :smileyhappy:

I feel eel like in forgetting something.. But here are my empties for the month. 

 

Love: the Ouidad! 

Maybe: shiseido  eye cream, Ren mask, TBS Brazil nut oil (smells ANAZING!) I liked the Korres Wild Rose but it seemed too heavy for my skin. I'm using the yogurt sleeping facial now, so it depends on how I like that. 

Nope: purity made simple, BBW Fresh Picked Lemon body cream

 

there were some foils too, but I forgot about them and they weren't amazing anyways

I have the world's frizziest hair.  I've been meaning to try that shampoo.  Glad to read a nice review.

It was good! I really like the hair gel that came in the set. It wasn't really HG status for me, but one of the better products I've found. Especially with how my hair reacts to summer humidity.

Re: Empties

I was going to buy those Sephora masks and put them away when the SA had no clue that ordering promos were available in the store.  I had been wanting to try that Bliss body balm.  Thanks to your review, I will hold off.

Re: Empties

The balm is dense and I did not find it moisturizing at all.  It also required alot of product to cover the skin adequately.  I am so spoiled by Josie's body butter, that I was glad when the Bliss one was empty.  As for the masks, I have them all, but I can't tell a difference between any of them.  I would still throw them in an order if I was trying to hit a minimum, but I wouldn't repurchase them separately on their own.

Glad you gave the GlamGlow for eyes another go.  Sorry it did not work better for you this time.

Sounds good. Thanks for sharing!  Didn't find this on their website.  Wonder if it applies at their dept. store counters?

No, only their retail stores. Go to their website for locations if you need them. What's nice is the empties don't even have to be from Origins.

Re: Empties

Hi ladies! I'm a mostly lurker here, but hoping to participate more as time allows! I am such a hoarder, I have a hard time using things up, even samples, but I am inspired by your empties thread! I have a few that I've just finished, so here they are!  I'm going to try to keep doing this.

Buy again/Loved:

lush jasmin and henna conditioning treatment' smells great, great for my long hair

phyto 7- awesome very day treatment for ends

batiste dry shampoo - I can usually find at to maxx for instead of 8 at ulta

Slatkin body wash was- amazing scent

lancome bi-facil - always good, I have a bunch more deluxe sizes already

 

Maybe:

sk-III essence - this was great but probably not worth the cost while retin-a is making my skin look great

La prairie moisturizer - good but can't justify the price

 

Just saying no:

D&G matte foundation sample - nice but didn't last as well as others

glamglow eye sample - ok, not worth purchasing for me

fekkai glossing conditio

 

looking forward to more empties soon!

Welcome! I had a difficult time using up products too but now that I've done empties posts for a while I've kind of become obsessed with downsizing my collection. It gets addicting!!!

Re: Empties

I use phyto 9.. and I'm debating repuchase.. it's awesome!

Re: Empties

Welcome.  I've been wanting to try Batiste dry shampoo and will get there when I whittle down some of my stash.  Love BiFacial.  I love GlamGlow for eyes, so I am sorry to read you didn't.

Re: Empties

Just saw I had a ton of typos, the iPad keyboard is acting weird! The batiste is $4 at tj maxx, often I can find it there. That is one thing I've re-purchased many times, lots of scents and I like the cute designs.  The glam glow is good, but I didn't see a huge enough difference to buy. I love the face masks from them though, especially thirsty mud.
