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.
I'm so jealous of you guys lol, you make my collection of empties look puny .
Repurchases: OH Truth Serum already have back ups, I use to not like this now I love it!
Have back ups of the Nars proprime too
Dislike: The Clinique Redness Cleanser, meh it didn't feel like anything....
I love OH serum too! I think I've stocked up for the whole year
Well, I have so many empties because I had tons of opened / half finished product already, and I was "cleaning up" my mess there This month I'm still finishing few, but I'll definitely have less

Other: Lots of random perfume foils!

First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads (28 pads) Already repurchased!
Dove Clinical Protection (1.7oz) Would repurchase but using other stuff first. Worked very well.
Ole Henriksen Truth to go wipes (10 wipes) LOVED the smell, did a good job removing makeup. Not a fan of the price
First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser (2 oz) Loved loved loved this! I have a few more samples that I'm trying to finish a few samples, but I'm going to definitely go back to this.
Soap & Glory Glad Hair Day Shampoo (50ml) Loved the smell of this. It was kind of drying, but that's ok because I have super oily hair. Haven't repurchased yet, because I'm finishing other stuff, but I definitely would.
Calvin Klein Euphoria (0.4oz sample) LOVE this is one of my favorite scents, i own a full size already
Ole Henriksen Vitamin C brightening serum (foil packet x2) LOVE this stuff! I have more samples that I'm finishing up, but I'm definitely gonna purchase a full size. Great smell, very moisturizing!
YSL All-in0one BB Cream skintone perfector in medium (1ml foil packet): the color was way off, but I tried it anyways, it felt very light on the skin, very good coverage. I'll definitely try it out in the correct color and see how it works!
Clarins Double Serum [hydric + Lipidic system] (foil packet) I LOVED LOVED LOVED this stuff, however at $85/oz I don't think I could ever pull the trigger. It made my face feel amazing and very hydrated.
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 styling treatment (10ml foil packet): new HG. Love this! smells amazing, makes my hair feel amazing! already purchased full size!
Argan Oil from Morocco (1.75 oz packet): Loved this stuff. Smells amazing, made my hair feel soft and easy to brush
Murad Illuminating day Moisture SPF 30 PA+++ (0.9ml foil packet) Loved it! Very moisturizing. didn't break me out, A little bit of a white cast, but not as much as I thought
Generic Nessus Moisturizing Shampoo (16 oz) It was a shampoo, I didn't hate it, but did't love it.
Honey Mark Jacobs (sample card) this smelled nice, not enough to purchase though, i like Dot better.
bareMinerals prime time foundation primer (15ml) This was ok, very silicone feeling, i think it may have broken me out a bit. I have others I'm working on too.
Biolage Matrix Exquisite Oil Micro-oil shampoo and conditioner (10ml foil packet): I love the smell of Biolage
Tarte Park Ave Princess (sample card): this was a great bronzer, but I don't wear bronzers. If I did I would get this one as it was very nice and matte and didn't look muddy
Bumble and Bumble Surf Foam Wash Shampoo and Conditioner (7ml foil packets x2): shampoo is shampoo, I haven't really found any that have blown me away
Swispers 100% cotton rounds (100 count): Cotton rounds are cotton rounds. They all do the same thing to me
NUDE cellular renewal moisturiser (2ml foil packet) This was ok, very moisturizing. nothing super spectacular though
boscia BB cream Broad spectrum SPF 27 PA++ (0.088oz foil packet) the coverage was great, but the color was horrible for me. It was very thick, too much for summer time
Josie maran 100% Pure Argan Oil Light (1ml foil packet): This was ok, I didn't see that much of a difference between this and the regular Argan oil (which I love)
Matrix Biolage Aqua-Immersion Creme Masque (10ml packet): this didn't do anything super special. Just felt like a regular old conditioner. However I love the smell
Shiseido Ibuki refining moisturizer (1ml foil packet) This worked ok, a regular old moisturizer. I'd use it, but not sure if I'd actually purchase it
Amore Pacific Natural Protector SPF 30/PA+++ (1ml foil packet): another SPF, this was pretty good
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Shampoo and Conditioner (10ml foil packet): It washed and conditioned my hair. Nothing spectacular
Bamboo Smooth Anti-Frizz Shampoo and Conditioner (10ml foil packet): shampoo and conditioner, nothing special
Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Shampoo and Conditioner (9ml foil packet): Another shampoo and conditioner. nothing special
Not for me
bareMinerals Ready SPF 20 foundation (sample card in Medium beige) First off the color was too dark, but I applied it while I was home alone to try out the coverage and feeling. I didn't like it at all. Barely any coverage and felt thick on my skin.
bareMinerals Lash Domination Volumizing mascara (1.5ml sample) Hated this. It did nothing for me. A bit lengthening, no volume, and it flaked off.
bareMinerals Stroke of Light Eye Brightener (sample) Hated this, very thin. No coverage. Wore off very easily.
Ole Henriksen Reparative anti-aging oil (1.5ml foil packet) I don't know if I got a bad sample, but I hated this. It smelled kind of fishy and I don't think it did anything special to my skin
Fresh Seaberry moisturizing face oil (1.5ml foil packet): I hated this! It smelled awful and did nothing for my skin.
Benefit Stay Flawless 15-hour Primer (sample pack): hated this! very thick, hard to work with, not good with blending
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Eden(foil packet): hated this. I feel like I wasted so much. The color was too intense and it went every where. You only need the tiniest amount, but it just gets everywhere and I don't think it held the color as well as the original Primer potion
L'Occitane Ultra Rich body cream (8ml foil packet) I didn't like this. The smell was good, but it was very greasy. It worked well on my feet, but awful on my hands and arms. I felt like a giant grease ball
Phyto Paris Apres-shampooing Conditioner (foil packet): This didn't do anything, my hair was hard to brush after using.
Perricone MD Photo Plasma Broad Spectrum SPF 30 (2ml foil packet): was very thick, I didn't think it sunk into my skin very well
Kellett moisturizing gel (3ml sample) hated this. IT was very sticky and did not moisturize at all
