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.
It is so rewarding to finish them. I admit certain things make me happy and other things make me sad. My Dreamtone being empty was a sad moment, because I told myself I will use all of my Bright Expert (opened last June) before I get another Dreamtone. I am going to miss it for a while. Bright Expert is not my favorite serum but tossing a serum I paid $70 for is not something I want to do.
I've been trying to use up my not-sô-favorite things first if expiry dates let me. You'll be through it before you know it especially having fewer options open and available. Thís thread is really helping with tidying up my product area. Best thread idea ever! I'm still surprised with how much stuff I had around that I was disregarding.
Does anyone else cut their tubes open to get the last of the product out? I have a strivectin tube I just cut open and there was still an ounce of cream left!!!
I started doing that a couple of months ago and I was amazed at how much product was left! I could have sworn it felt empty and then I cut the tube and I see that I have at least 4-5 more uses.
I used to just assume there was nothing left if I couldn't squeeze it out and toss the tube! at the price per ounce of so e of our products it's silly not to get it all

Thanks! I do go through foundation pretty quickly. I bought a Nars tinted moisturizer but I think it might have been breaking me out so I stopped using it so my skin can clear up for a friend's wedding next week. I might experiment with it again after that so hopefully I can ease up on the foundation usage.
That's definitely one of my favorite aspects of TSBs! I love being able to put in items that others are excited about and love getting to tell people that some of their pass-on items have become my favorites!

Nice job finishing the High Beam. Those little babies take so long to use I fear it will expire before I finish it. We are in agreement on The Murad serum. I love the GlamGlow for eyes though.
Thanks, it took forever to finish!
How long do you leave the GlamGlow eye treatment on? When I leave it on for the recommended time I feel like it doesn't do much for me. I like it, but can't say I love it enough to buy it.
I leave it on just slightly over three minutes. I read that it hardens if you leave it on too long, making it less effective, because you then have to wash it off (washing away most of the effect). It usually takes me around five. I basically put it on after my shower. Then, I put my body lotion on, which is about a 5 minute process with my foot cream. I wash my hands. Then, I remove the GlamGlow with a dry cotton round.
After I remove it, I am very careful not to get any toner on the portion of my eyes the GlamGlow touched. The trick is to ensure you do not get the area wet. On the rare occasions I have accidentally touched the toner under my eyes (which is normal for me on non GlamGow days), my eyes never look as bright.
I also suggest only using one pod (AKA 1/2 of the unit) for both eyes. There is way too much in a single pod for each eye. The product lasts twice as long that way but works just as well in my opinion.
