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

Great empties! I simply must find the philosophy fresh cream somewhere to smell, I keep hearing so much about it!

Re: Empties

That is 3 It's a 10s in a row.  Now, I am really going to open mine.

 

I want to try that Shiseido sunblock spray.  Glad to hear you love it.

Re: Empties

Has anyone tried the different versions of the It's a 10 and can speak on the differences between them? I have the Keratin version that I got a (giant) free sample of from Ulta, but I find it a little heavy on my hair- and most Keratin products are for me. I'm interested in the Silk version- anyone tried?

Re: Empties

I had no idea there were different versions.  Mine does not say Keratin or silk.  Now, I am bummed.  Maybe, I can wait to open it after all.

Re: Empties

Don't be bummed! I was interested in the original version too! That's the one Penelope has in the photo above. The other two ladies have the Keratin version with the gold top.

Re: Empties

How did you like the L'occitane and Shiseido products?

 

Re: Empties

I LOVE the llocitane shower almond oil. Its my all time favorite body wash cause its so moisturizing. 

And I also LOVE the sheisedo sunblock spray. i used it on my body when out w my daughter at the park etc. Now I used supergoop as its cheaper. Would re purchase both!

Re: Empties

I actually used the supergoop oil recently on my 2 week vacation it was amazing!

I have that sample but I've been trying to save it for my next trip! lol

Re: Empties

I think this is my biggest empties month yet!!

 

Loved/Might repurchase:
Fekkai Shea Butter Conditioner- smells DIVINE

B&BW Pink Grapefruit Anti-Bac Soap

Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara

B&BW Fresh Cotton Wallflowers

Caudalie Vinosource Sorbet- slightly too oily for my skin, won't repurchase but excellent product

Bare Minerals Stroke of Light- LOVED, would repurchase for summer/tanner skin usage, but in my pale months this color isn't quite light enough

Origins Mega Mushroom Mask- loved! You can put this on and actually walk around the house and forget about it! Really comfortable mask, very hydrating.

The Balm Put a Lid on It Eyelid Primer- great primer, still prefer NARS or Benefit over this so far.

Liked:

Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam

Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer

REN Micro Polish Cleanser- love how creamy yet exfoliating this is, the smell not so much.

Fekkai Shea Butter Hair Mask

PTR Mega-Rich Body Lotino & Shower Gel

Soap & Glory Vit C Facial Wash- this was apparently discontinued?

Lea Journeau Hydra-Riche Conditioner

Arangara Olive & Rose Body Lotion

MOX Botanicals Lip Butter

Neutral:

Body Shop Cocoa Butter Creamy Body Wash

Body Shop Vitamin E Hydrating Toner and Moisture Serum- not fond of the smell

Korres Mascara- I think this dried out

Origins Vita-Zing- too dark for me

Body Shop Vit C Eye Reviver Duo

Clinique Take the Day Off- fabulous at removing face makeup, not so great at eye makeup- plus, this would get onto the surface of my eyes and cause blurry vision for about an hour afterward.

L'Occitane Divine Cream- good moisturizer, slightly too greasy for me, definitely not worth the price tag.

Disliked:

Body Shop Vit C Skin Boost- caused breakouts

Smashbox Photo Finish Blemish Control Primer- whiteheads literally within a few hours of putting this on. EEEEK

REN T-Zone Balancing Day Fluid- breakouts!

REN Hydra-Calm Global Protection Cream- too greasy for my skin

 

 

Just mentioning the ones that stood out:

NARS Eyeshadow Primer- very nice! Still can't figure out my #1 eyeshadow primer, but this is definitely a contender Smiley Happy

Caudalie Hydrating Serum- great, great product. If it had more dark-spot reducing potential, would purchase.

Caudalie Radiance Serum- again, great product but lacked the dark-spot reducing I was looking for. Thankfully the Caudalie Anti-Aging serum does, will probably buy that when my stash runs out.

Clarins Double Serum- ick ick ick greasy mess! This has SO MUCH mineral oil in it, gross!

Sephora Super Supreme Body Butter- this was very luxurious and thick and non-greasy. Wasn't a very appealing scent to me though, would buy if there were some different scent options.

Tata Harper Rejuvingating Serum- could not get past the terrible smell of this stuff. Sadly the scent lasts a long time too.

Kat Von D Makeup Remover Wipes- nice and thick, lots of moisture but stung my eyes like a MOTHER.

Re: Empties

I think you hit the nail on the head with the Caudalie Vinosource Sorbet. It is taking me a while to get through the sample I am currently using, because it just does not sooth my skin type.  I do find it moisturizing (even though it is light) on my dry skin (which is usually very dry).  I have combination skin though, so I do not like the way it feels on my oily skin.

Re: Empties

I truly wish Caudalie would come out with a very lightweight, hydrating but not oily moisturizer, because I adore their products!

Re: Empties

I don't know why it took me so long to say congrats on all your empties - you did some serious work this past month! I'm impressed with how many full size/deluxe size products you went through!

Re: Empties

What kind of hair do you have? I've been dying to try the Fekkai shea butter mask Smiley Happy

I'm inspired by all your empties! Smiley Happy

Re: Empties

I hated that Fekkai shea butter mask so much that it took me over a year to finish it.  Really, I should have chucked it after 2-3 uses.

Re: Empties

I've got unruly curly hair/ringlets! The line smells absolutely amazing!

 

And thank you! It's very satisfying to get rid of a shoebox + full of items every month, reassures me that I'm actually working through my stash Smiley Happy

Re: Empties

I just used my Kat Von D make Up remover's tonight I agree with everything u just said about them nice & thick with moisture however they burned my eyes like evil lasers!!!

Re: Empties

Yeah, very disappointing Smiley Sad

Re: Empties

Only things I hated: 

PTR Laser Free Resurfacer (smelled gross...pretty sure this also broke me out. my skin did not like it)

Michael Todd - Skin Loving Aloe & Cucumber wipes (there are just so many better options out there. didn't like these at all)

 

The rest ranges from absolute loves to 'meh' products.

Re: Empties

Woohooo you kicked butt!! Any favorites?

Re: Empties

Lots! UD All Nighter setting spray, Macadamia Deep Repair Mask, Mario Badescu Special Cucumber Lotion (toner), Flowerbomb rollerball and Nars tinted moisturizers are all things I'm obsessed with! I could not go a day without that setting spray.

 

I also really loved the Roses de Chloe perfume but it didn't pass the boyfriend test. I personally adore the smell of roses but he prefers other scents on me which is totally fine! I have a little sample bottle I'll use but that's about it.
