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.

Yes it is!  I know. I actually don't ever toss any of these empty Diptyque holders.  I always end up storing little things in them.

Re: Empties

Do you just put them in freezer so you can pop the leftover wax out of the bottom? 

Re: Empties

No.  I get some pliers out to remove the metal part holding the wick and then I just wash them like I wash dishes.  

Re: Empties

Oh, ok, thanks!

Re: Empties

Sure!  There's no need to freeze them or anything.  Just wash them and the wax will come out.  Also, when the candle is almost gone I will light it one last time and pour out whatever wax will come out.  Then when it cools I will wash it.

Re: Empties

I would have never thought to wash them - I thought that water wouldn't work to get wax out. Thanks for the tips! I'm going to buy my first Diptyque candle this spring and I definitely want to keep the jar once it's gone.

Re: Empties

Sure, Jenny!  Yup, normal old soap and water will do the trick.  I like to keep all the holders once the candles are spent.  

Re: Empties

I'm usually good to toss empty candle jars but my heart stopped at the thought of that one going, lol!  I don't normally buy really nice candles though.  

Re: Empties

I just can't bring myself to throw any of these out esp the Diptyque ones.  I dunno Smiley Happy

Ill have to remember to try that moroccanoil shampoo and conditioner.  I remember the oil does smell amazing!  

Re: Empties

I love the smell of morroccan oil shampoo!!!  And how it makes my hair feel.  I recently tried buying the knockoff version of it at SDM and it was extremely disappointing.  If I can't give it away it's going in the trash.

Have or will repurchase:

Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm

Clinique Eye Makeup Remover

Ole Henrikson Truth Serum

N I p/Fab Glycolic Pads

Smashbox Pore Minimizing Primer

UD Naked Skin in 3.5

UD Naked Skin Concealer in Light/Medium Neutral

It's a 10 Miracle Leave In with Keratin

Murad Essential C Moisturizer SPF 30

NYX Microbrow Pencil in Ash Brown

Glamglow Thirsty Cleanse

 

Undecided on repurchasing or holding off to try other products:

UD de-slick Makeup Setting Spray - I have other setting sprays to go through first, and I'm not convinced this worked better for me than all nighter.

Origins Original Skin Willowherb Serum- Smelled nice, not convinced it did anything special

GlamGlow Tingle Exfoliate Mask - The tingle sensation was a little too strong for me, but my face did feel really clean afterword.

MUFE Step 1 Primer - I think this is too similar to the   Smashbox Primer I like to repurchase

Maycoop Rawsauce- I have other essences to try, but did like this one. Will probably hold off until summer to purchase a full size essence.

Murad Invisablur Perfecting Shield Primer- Felt very siliconey in texture but the SPF was really nice. it's just out of my price range atm.

Ahava Dead Sea Concentrate Serum - This was fine, but nothing special.

Benefit Porefessional - I feel like this is one of those products that I will never purchase just because there is always a free sample in some kind of offer

 

Products I really didn't like:

Fresh Advanced Therapy Lip Serum- I gave this one a few weeks trial and decided I'm done with it. The taste is really awful if you happen to get it in your mouth and I woke up one night with my lips on fire after I put this on just before sleeping. I guess I used too much? Not worth it.

Coola Setting Spray - Smells like awful chemically sunscreen and stings on first contact with skin. Really is not good around the eyes. Having the extra SPF protection is great, but it isn't worth the initial application torture.

I wanted to try that Fresh Serum for so long and have pretty much come to the same conclusion. I am having a hard time finishing it.

I haven't found a setting spray that I'm loyal to either.  I usually just use one to remove any powders off the fine hairs on my face and not so much to 'set' the makeup.

I have found that I enjoy a steady mist as opposed to spraying my face with a pump though. 

Re: Empties

Loves, would repurchase:

SKII Cleansing Oil

Chanel Hydra Serum

Clarins Extra Firming Day Cream

Fresh Eye Cream

Bobbi Brown Eye Makeup Remover

 Hm, BT seems to have deleted the likes and meh's!

Where did Perfect Hair Day fall before it was deleted? That is a sample I am looking forward to.

Re: Empties

Hi NC, I noted below in the edit  - it was kind of a meh.  Not more effective than others and possibly less, for what seemed very little product!   

Re: Empties

I just tried a sample of that fresh sea berry oil.  Maybe mine had gone bad or something cause it smelled terrible- almost sour?  

Re: Empties

[ Edited ]

Thats what I wrote about this one, the smell was pretty bad, and stayed with me, despite anything else I put on top of it.  I actually used about half of it at first, then came back to it after a while and realized I don't need to torture myself, I have a million oils in my stash still to try.  I wanted to like it from the description, etc. and I am not at all sensitive to smells, but this one was strong and lasted for hours after applying.  A pass for me. 

 

Eta: also, just to update, most everything else was a like, or needs more time, but I was unimpressed with the LP dry shampoo.  That travel size lasted only 2 or 3 uses, seemed ok, but nothing special.  I way prefer Drybar and Bumble & Bumble Pret a Porter over this.

Re: Empties

Okayyyyyyy!!!   I have been really slacking in the emptys department.  Here's the last three months.  If you have any questions let me know cause there's just too much at once to list.  image.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpg
