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.
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?
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.
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!
I think this is my biggest empties month yet!!
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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!
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
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!!!
Phew - this is two months worth!

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.
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.
