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.
amazing Haul! I need to get better at skin care. also I'm intrigued by the soft soap whipped cocoa butter. is that a foaming hand wash i'm guessing by the hand pump on top that it is but I could be wrong. if it is a handsoap I might have to look into that one. I love the soft soap line for their Coconut butter body Scub it has an amazing scent. and dare I say an HG for me by scent alone? anyways again amazing haul. I need to get my empties going. I am planning on combining two - three months together
The soft soap whipped cocoa butter is a foaming hand soap. It has a nice light scent, and it is just as good as the bath and body works soaps in my opinion. 😊
I like the Dual Finish. I have not purchased it in a while; though I usually return back to it, especially when there is gwp at the department store counters! 😊

I am amazed and impressed with what you have used up! I am trying hard to work through more foils and deluxe/travel sizes but have to find a balance where I don't cause havoc on my skin.
I love seeing all the progress you're making on your challenges. You're inspiring me. I've wanted to do some of the same challenges, but I know I'd be setting myself up for failure. Your articles are great and witty.
@kelloua i'm doing a bunch on my blog! i'm doing a year long use it or lose it (both makeup and skincare), a use 16 in 2016 lip products, a take a bite out of bite (trying to use up bite lip products), 7 summer flings, 13 by Halloween and a use it or lose it project pan roulette.
you could totally do it! i think the key for me has been to find products that i like and would probably use anyways and then mix in 1 or 2 that i wouldn't otherwise use!
@sparklekai So many empties this month! I'm impressed you used up a whole colourpop shadow! Out of curiosity, what do you like about the tatcha rice enzyme powder? I want to like it but I can't really tell if it's doing anything for my skin. I seem to notice the effects of exfoliation more when I use something stronger like a facial peel.
it reminds me of the amore pacific enzyme peel only i needed less product to get the same results. its definitely not a hard core exfoliant but i have sensitive skin so thats good for me! i use a couple times a week and do a hard core exfoliant every 2 weeks or so.
i think the best way to describe what i like is with what i notice when i don't use it! i feel like i have more build up on my skin - especially on my nose and that my makeup doesnt go on as smooth
Gottcha. That makes sense. It's hard for me to tell because I use this daily in addition to other things. (I'm sensitive too but for some reason peels don't seem to bother my skin. So maybe not as sensitive as I thought.)
Likes: Have or Would Repurchase
Meh: Ok but nothing special
tl;dr - most samples are the wrong color, and gel creams aren't moisturizing enough
l'Occitane cream: not moisturizing enough, weird "cream to powder" feel
Skyn Iceland Soothing moisturizer: I liked it but then it broke me out
Clarins Double Serum: didn't like the texture
Algenist Genius Eye Cream: may have just been old, but it had a balm-to-oily-cream texture that I really hated, and made it very hard to work with
Hoola bronzer foil: waaaay too yellow
Clarins Day Cream: not moisturizing enough, felt like just sunscreen w/no moisturizer at all
Tatcha gel moisturizer: not moisturizing enough
Mario Badescu Vitamin C serum: weird heavy oil texture
Lorac concealer: way too dark
Missha Perfect Cover BB cream: too light
Clinique Moisture Surge gel cream: not moisturizing enough
Stila Huge Lash mascara: very wet and clumpy
bliss makeup remover: heavy silicone feel
UD B6 Prep Spray: made my makeup cakey. I finished it up by using it to wet eyeshadow brushes.
Fresh Rose Hydration Serum: did nothing, including hydrate.
