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.
This is my first time browsing this thread. I have to admit I never saw what could be so compelling about looking at other people's empty shampoo bottles but now I'm hooked! I literally just had the fleeting thought of pawing through my garbage like a raccoon to find my Peter Thomas Roth serum bottle and a few foil packs so I can start my empties collection and post next month. This does not bode well.
FAB - Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay - loved! My face felt so clean afterwards and never dried out.
Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray - this is a HG item for me
Dior One Essential Skin Boosting Super Serum
Dior Hydra Life BB Creme
Benefit Porefessional (full size - yay!)
Living Proof Restore Targeted Repair Cream
CVS Nail Polish Remover
Go Smile PM Luxury Toothpaste (only included this because it was given as a free sample from Ulta)
BareMinerals Full Flawless Face Brush - I have never had much luck with these brushes. No matter how carefully I take care of them, they always fray and get scratchy. This one is going to the trash.
I am really loving my First Aid Beauty Cleanser with red clay too. I alternate it with quite a few other products, so it will probably take me a while to finish it.
I like the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray too. I always forget to use it though.
These are my February and April empties! So excited to be making a dent in my stash
Korres Pomegranate toner - I think this is my 5th bottle!
ExfoliKate - 3rd bottle
FAB Facial Radiance Pads - 5th jar
GlamGlow exfoliating mask
Didn't hate anything but not sure if there is anything else here I would repurchase. That was my 4th jar of the PTR pads but I've realized they are way too harsh for my face and should only be used in times of crisis.
So excited to finally be able to post on here! I love to stalk everyones' empties
I'm using the Max ones - I will look into using the gentle ones though, thank you for the suggestion! I tend to go all in trying to use max max max strength to get rid of blemishes NOW. Sigh, trying to learn patience. I know my skin will thank me!
Not the best month for me…..
Aussie Hair insurance- I've gone through at least 5 bottles of this stuff, however I'm interested in trying other products. It's a 10 is next. if I don't find something better, then I'll definitely go back to this.
Clean & Clear Morning Burst Facial Cleanser-- While this does nothing special for my face, I've been using it for years. I love the smell of it. It does sort of wake me up in the morning. However, I am getting into more "adult' skin care. I bought both of the Sephora Favorites Skin care sets so I can experiment with some new products.
Victoria's Secret Pink Softening foot cream-- This was a very good foot cream. It smelled very minty which I liked and had a cooling effect. The shea butter helped to keep my feet soft. I loved putting this on after a long 12 hour shift.
Would NOT repurchase
Nivea A kiss of Shimmer--I hated this stuff. It smelled bad and tasted bad. It felt good on the lips and did hold some moisture, but I felt like a disco ball. I was expecting a little bit of shimmer, not a ton of glitter. I like all of Nivea products, but this one just didn't cut it for me. I only used it 5 times and just couldn't force myself to use it anymore. So this is actual trash.
Bare Minerals Naturally Luminous Firming Eye Treatment-- Got this in a gift with purchase. Nothing fantastic. It was moisturizing, but I don't feel like it did anything fantastic as far as brightening or firming. Just a basic eye cream. I'm on to Tarte C-Brightener next
Orofluido Hair serum-- another product that wasn't mind blowing. It was a hair serum and did it's job. It didn't blow my mind. I think I got this from a birch box or another beauty box. It was very thick which I didn't like either. On to the next!
Hopefully next month I'll have some higher end products and MORE products. Just not a very productive month for me this month. I think I bounced around to much and didn't focus on finishing stuff up :/
My friend bought the Nivea A Kiss of Shimmer the other day. She put it on to try it and asked me how it looked (without seeing herself). Oh boy. It's pretty bad! Disco ball sums it up nicely. Good thing it wasn't too pricy. I told her to throw it away instantly lol
Good luck on your empties for February, NurseCupcake!
Oh Thank you! I always feel guilty throwing away products instead of using them up, even if I hate them, but this one. I just couldn't do it! I feel much better tossing it now that I have someone who agrees with me!
I have an overflowing bag as well this month, but that's due to a bunch of things that were half empty that I tossed when I realized that I absolutely hated forcing my self to use them so I figured they just needed to leave my life
A few recent empties to add.
Soap and Glory Off Your Face Wipes--I got them a while back from Sephora clearance. They were good. I don't use wipes often though.
First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads--This was my third or so package. I liked them a lot but am currently using a very mild toner instead. Not sure when/if I'll go back to these.
DevaCurl Mister-right--I already repurchased this.
First Aid Beauty Facial Cleanser--This is a great cleanser and lasted me a long time. I'm currently working through some other products now.
Lorac Pro Mascara--liked the formula, hated the wand.
Benefit They're Real Mascara--Sephora Birthday gift. I have another small one to use now.
Lancome Definicils--LOVE this mascara and wand. Probably won't buy it though...I am cheap with mascara.
Aveeno Baby Soothing Relief Moisture Cream--I use this on my kids and sometimes on my legs. I find it soothes dry, itchy skin. It's fragrance free which is sometimes what I'm looking for. I'm going to use up some other stuff and maybe re-buy.
