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.
Have you ever worn the MDSolarSciences spf 50 sunscreen (the regular in the pink bottle, not the tinted) under makeup? I am planning on purchasing it to wear under my foundation.
I had fourteen samples of that one! Once you put foundation on over top you're covering up the white anyways. I didnt ever have any problems with flashback even. I like their stuff.
Re: Empties[ Edited ]
Knuevekm, I use and love this one, but it does leave a white cast. I'm very fair, so it doesn't mess with my complexion much. And I do find the white cast fades within 20 minutes or so.
The Sheseido sunscreen leaves a white cast on me as well. What Ojon item is that? The Dry shampoo smells so badly I am having a hard time getting through it. Yours looks like a mini of that.
It is the dry shampoo. I didn't even get two uses out of it before it clogged up and died on me. I tried soaking the lid in warm water and nothing wants to come out even though it feels full still. It's gone. I'm not fighting with it anymore. I have a shiseido dry shampoo I picked up in Japan I love more anyways.
I try to be more polite when I have to deliver contradictory news. Lol. I received the brown bottle in trade, I am under the understanding it came with one of the mega kits from QVC. I think it's charming too, I wish they would use this as an "alternate" design to jive with the apothecary look.
