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

My Eradikate has not been working as well as it used to. 

 

 

Re: Empties

Every few months or so, mine stops working too.  I now use Mario Badesco bc it seems the same and costs less, but I have to stop using it after I've built a tolerance.

 

Then, I wander around like, now what do I use?  No, really, what should I use instead??  What do you use?

I swear our acne adjusts to the medication, because Eradikate was magical when I first started using it. I've been wanting to try the Mario Baedscu and will eventually once I've used up some of my stock.

 

I am still using Eradikate, at least until I finish it off, and I was sent one by InstaNatural to test. That is not even as good as the Eradikate. 

Re: Empties

I really like the MB Silver Powder - I think it works really well, and it seems to last forever!

Re: Empties

I would rather just put a spackle of toothpaste on th zit, honestly. I know that stuff works.

Re: Empties

I always thought that was a wives tale, so I never tried it. Does it really work?

Re: Empties

It might work for some, but for me it definitely did not, it might have been because I have sensitive skin.

 

I had a large pimple and an event the next day and my friend recommended that I put toothpaste over it. I left it on over night, washed it off, and was left with a large burn/scab where the toothpaste was. That burn didn't go away for three weeks and I never ever tried the toothpaste method again. I went out and bought the Mario Badescu treatment later.

My skin is really sensitive, so I was not going to try it (since Katie suggested it may not work on sensitive skin). How do you like the Mario Badescu treatment?

That stinks that you had a bad reaction - I was reading online that may happen (and why it was not recommended). I've never had a poor reaction personally, so it's my tried and true method.

 

...but I LOOOOVE me some Mario Badescu! Everything in the product line.

Re: Empties

@notcreative For me, yes 100%.

 

Pretty sure my mom turned me onto it when I was going through puberty and whatnot lol.

 

I would put a generous bubble of toothpaste on the zit, go to sleep and wake up to a significantly reduced blemish. Even tones down the redness.

 

I just assumed there was some rule breaking to it or that maybe that wasn't actually good for your skin but it's been fail-proof for me for years. It always works and doesn't aggravate my skin at all.

 

I would suggest, however, getting a solid WHITE toothpaste, and not one with gels or other colors. I don't know what it is, but the standard 'ole white toothpaste (Colgate) is the trick.

 

(just did a google search and apparently dermatologists don't recommend it. If your skin is VERY VERY sensitive, I wouldn't listen to me.. mine isn't super sensitive.)

Re: Empties

i have super sensitive skin including allergies and rosacea. As long as its my chin or somewhere away from eyes, it actually irritates my skin way less than salicylic

Re: Empties

Yep. It absolutely and truly works. Must be the paste kind. I put in on before bed.

Re: Empties

@KatieKabam What do you think about the Clinique face wash?

Re: Empties

Actually, I really liked that too! I would buy a full size. Very gentle on skin and smells great. 

Re: Empties

Thanks. I'm looking for a simple cleanser to go along with my other cleanser. If the one I just bought doesn't work, I think I'll try this.

Re: Empties

No problem, I think you will lik it for that! I was using it along with the NUDE cleansing jelly and I was happy with how clean and calm my face felt.

Aww it's okay! That happens to me when I buy new things and mix them into rotation immediately 

Re: Empties

I wish I had saved my empties this month because it's been a successful month for full-sized products.  I finished the following, plus several samples:

 

  • PTR Cucumber Mask 
  • Paula's Choice Hydralight Toner 
  • Vita bath Shower Gel in Lavender Chamomile 

This may not look like a lot, but that Cucumber mask was over two years old (a little goes a long way) and the shower gel has been in rotation with five others, so it takes me a long time to go through a bottle.

 

I also expect to finish my full-sized PC BHA Liquid and PTR Moor Mud Mask before the month is up.
