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 agree with the lovely Sparkle.  I have terrible OCD.  However, I have a large bag under the sink that I only see when I open the cabinets.  Out of sight.  Out of mind.  It works for me.

Re: Empties

Thats why I didn't have a picture, haha! I don't save much if it is not usable, so this thread is fascinating to me!

Boring, I know, but I finished an entire bottle of the Tresseme Smooth and Silky Shampoo and Conditioner! I never commit to just one shampoo and conditioner but I already have a new set of this in my shower - its awesome!

Re: Empties

Lots of great items.  


That big bottle of Marc Anthony only gave you one use or it was so terrible that you could not bring yourself to use it again?

Re: Empties

This is the first time I've ever saved any empties, but I'm on a mission to use up products in the next few months!!




Have already repurchased/will repurchase:

Origins Checks & Balances Face Wash - this is probably my 5th bottle, I love how it doesn't make my skin feel stripped

Lush It's Raining Men - I have the bar soap right now but I adore this scent

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion - also probably my 5th bottle

Lancome Hypnose Mascara - I've probably gone through 10 tubes of this

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray - 3rd bottle!

Dr. Dennis Gross Purifying Booster



Lush R&B - I've used this a few times, didn't finish this pot before it's expiration date

Fresh Rose Face Mask - this felt super nice but takes a lot of work to rinse off

Bamboo Anti-Breakage Thermal Protectant Spray - my hair's been breaking more than usual since I started using this, not really a great endorsement for the product

Body Shop Shea Shower Cream - good to shave with

Lush Dream Cream - I don't love the smell, but moisturizes well

Dr Dennis Gross Clinical Concentrate Radiance Booster - I'm on the fence about this one

Dr Dennis Gross Furulic & Retinol Moisturizer - this is a really good moisturizer, there are just a couple I like better


Would not repurchase:

Murad Acne Body Wash - very expensive, doesn't really do much

Origins Modern Friction - I do like this and have used a couple tubes but have since found things I like better

Body Shop Shea Lip Treatment - sooooo gross

Murad Hydro Dynamic Moisturizer - just a generic moisturizer to me, no scent which is the only bonus

Dr Dennis Gross All in One Cleansing Foam - left my skin a little too dry for my preference

Dior Hydra Life Eye Cream - this is not awesome, it has HA but that's about it

There is a Lush next to my new Sephora.  I plan on exploring the brand a little more in 2015, because I love the only thing I've tried so far.  It's Raining Men sounds like the perfect product to start with.

UD All Nighter Setting Spray

Benefit Theyre Real Mascara

Gurlain Maxi Lash

Glamglow Bright Mud

Cute turtle!  Does she help you test the lotions?  :smileyhappy:

[ Edited ]



Loved, would repurchase:

PTR FirmX Peeling Gel (really love this stuff, so gentle yet effective)


Liked, may or may not repurchase:

B&B Hairdresser's Oil Conditioner (not bad, need to try again for more opinion)

Caudalie Premier Cru (not bad, need to try again for more opinion)

GlamGlow ThirstyMud (almost a love, need to try again to see if worth the cost)

Perricone MD Acyl-Glutathione Eye Serum (almost a love, but cost makes it a like)

Fresh Sugar Lip Polish (been using this for years, but ready to try something new)

Fresh Life Perfume (not bad, need to try again for more opinion)

DevaCurl Mister Right (not bad, need to try again for more opinion)


Disliked, wouldn't repurchase:

Nizoral (worked for scalp, too drying for hair)

Alterna Scalp Facial (worked for scalp, not environmentally friendly)

B&B Hairdresser's Oil Shampoo (too drying for hair)

Living Proof PHD 5-in-1 Styling Treatment (meh, still not a fan of LP)

Origins Checks and Balances Face Wash (burns my eyes so bad!)

Dr. Jart Ceramidin Cream (meh, don't even know what this was)

Re: Empties

I didn't like Origins Checks and Balances either. It stripped my face and left my face feeling so tight and dry. 

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

I know some people love Origins Checks and Balances, but I've tried it multiple times over the years, and it's just not for me.

Re: Empties

I'm glad to read that you loved the PTR- I just bought it for $10 Black Friday in SiJCP.

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

I was debating getting the PTR Black Friday deal, but it's also in a couple of other sets I'm eyeing.  Still trying to decide what to do!

Re: Empties

I cannot wait to try that PTR, so I am glad to see you love it.  As soon as I finish off some of my opened items, that is getting opened next.



Re: Empties

The PTR is funny because it balls up into these things that look like tiny cotton balls.  The more you massage it, the more it exfoliates.

Re: Empties

Thanks for the tip.  I will try to remember that.

Re: Empties

Well, I think I finally figured out how to get iPod photos into BT-


Here goes:

I checked my Mascara stash and these are either empty or expired, and I finished Lancome Renergie Volumetry Night (meh) and Olay Regenerist Eye and Lash Serum (did nothing).


Mascaras are 2 BLINC (Fairy Drops Scandal Queen works better), Smashbox Bionic (flakes), Rimmel Sexy Curves (bought while travelling, was ok as an emergency mascara, but not my fave), UD Lush Lash Mascara (flakes/racoon eyes rather soon after application).



Re: Empties

I finally finished a face mask!!! I finished Glamgow's Power Mud. Already have a backup (actually 2 because I bought it during their recent BOGO deal). I definitely love that stuff!!

Re: Empties

Interesting, since I've been looking at buying a double pack containing Power Mud and Thirsty Mudd. What exactly does the power mud do for your skin? Sorry if this has been asked a zillion times before; I'm new to the brand ...
