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

Cotton buds that fall apart too easily annoy me intensely! Can definitely empathize!

Re: Empties

As soon as I am done with my stockpile, I am trying Sheseido.  The problem is my stockpile will probably last me through 2015.  I like to buy things in bulk.

Re: Empties

The Shiseido ones are amazing, and a pack lasts quite a long time compared to the cotton rounds!

Re: Empties

Another great month for me!

Re: Empties

What June Jacobs item is it and what did you think of it?

Re: Empties

It was an exfoliating mask. I wasn't impressed much, it was very very gentle, and I didn't feel much results. it might be a good product for a sensitive skin, though, but not for mine. I like Exfolikate better. 

Re: Empties

Thanks for letting me know.  I only use one June Jacobs product so far (the foot cream), but I really like it.

 

I love Exfolikate.  The only one I like when I refuse to splurge on Exfolikate is the one from Benefit.  I get rashes from so many and find the others ineffective.  I think I remember you writing that you were not a Benefit fan though.

Re: Empties

I like the Benefit's scrub though, I think their skincare is pretty good. I'm not a big fan of their makeup and corporate rules/policies Smiley Happy 

Re: Empties

I keep getting samples of their skincare (and other than the exfoliant that I surprisingly bought without ever sampling, I have yet to try any of it.  Glad to read you like it.  I will eventually give it a try.

Re: Empties

I am so curious what is in the lip package?

Re: Empties

It was a Korean lip mask from one of the memeboxes. Nothing special. I didn't feel it did anything to my lips 

Re: Empties

i came, i saw, i used!!!

Re: Empties

I love the scent of the soft soap - body butter coconut scrub I've lost count of how many times I've bought it.

Re: Empties

BiFacial is fantastic.  I like that you only had one no from everything you tried.  I know your skin color is not much darker than mine.  How are you applying the chocolate soliel?  I used it (again) for the first time the other day.  I am liking it more than before but thinking I will concentrate it on certain areas and use a lighter bronzer in others.  

Re: Empties

i like it...i use a mac 163 around the outside of my forehead and use my ud optical blurring blush to blend...it ends up being very subtle on me

Re: Empties

Thanks. I am thinking of using it for the hollows of my cheeks and sides of my nose but trying a lighter color for my three and E.  I will keep practicing applying it with a lighter hand and blending more.

Re: Empties

May & June empties. I can't believe I used up so many products. I tried putting everything in two photos but it wouldn't fit. I feel so accomplished. Smiley Happy I'm going to start monthly empties from now on, I'm using up stuff regularly... also writing all this out took forever. Smiley Happy

 

MayJune1.jpg

Loved, would repurchase or already have:
Alba Bontanica Very Emollient Bath & Shower Gel: Incredibly moisturizing, nice scent. I’m currently using the Mango version of it.
Equate Strengthening Nail Polish Remover: Not too picky with nail polish remover. This one is good. Got rid of glitter polish easily.
L’Oreal EverCreme Conditioner: Great drugstore conditioner. Still have the shampoo. Doesn’t weigh down my fine hair.
Sulwhasoo Essential Balancing Water: Nice toner. Even though I’m acne prone I prefer hydrating toners to astringents. Doesn’t break me out. Currently using the full size.
Sulwhasoo Essential Balancing Emulsion: I use this every other night right before my moisturizer to provide extra hydration. Same texture as the Josie Maran Argan Milk (which I also love.)
Korres Greek Yoghurt Advanced Nourishing Sleeping Facial: I used this the week before TOM. Prevented hormonal breakouts and made my skin glow. I doubt I will ever purchase since I wait for it to show up as a point perk or deluxe sample.
L'Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil: Smells so good. Only got one use out of it, so can’t really tell about the moisturizing effect. I would just get it for the yummy scent.
Plus White 5 Minute Speed Whitening Gel: I drink coffee. Lots of coffee. I use this in between more ‘serious’ whitening to slow down staining.

 

Meehh, a maybe repurchase:
MUAC Glycolic Acid Body Lotion: I’m still on the hunt for an exfoliating body lotion. This was alright. My KP did diminish a bit while using it.
Sulwhasoo Ginseng Renewing Cream: Really moisturizing. More of a winter product. Same price range as La Mer, I think I might prefer it to the La Mer.
Ole Henriksen Lemon Strip Flash Peel: Have the three step system now. Works well, not a really intense peel (at least for me).
MUAC 5 Acid Body Peel: Not sure about this product. Have to try another deluxe sample to see if I like it.
Tarte Marajuca Oil: I’m taking a break from facial oils, but if I ever start using them again I will consider this for sure.

 

Not for me, wouldn’t repurchase:
Alpha Hydrox Enhanced Lotion 10% Glycolic AHA: Used as body lotion. Have gone through two bottles. Decided I don’t really like it. Didn’t do much for my KP.
Boscia Makeup-Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil: Excellent makeup remover. It just left my eyes very blurry.
MUAC Mandelic Acid Serum: Used on my chest. Didn’t notice much difference.
MUAC Gly-luronic Serum: Used on my chest. Didn’t notice much difference. Sticky consistency.
Skinmedica Vitamin C+ E Complex Moisturizer: Alright moisturizer. Noticed my blackheads were much larger even after using it only for a couple of days.
Sulwhasoo Hydro-Aid Moisturizing Lift Serum: Strong fragrance. Left my skin greasy.
Sulwhasoo Hydro-Aid Moisturizing Lift Cream: Very sticky. Left my skin oily.
Black Opal Tri-Complex Tonecorrect Fade Gel: Used on my back and chest for some sun spots. Didn’t do much. Prefer the Alpha Hydrox Spot Remover.
Paula’s Choice Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator: I didn’t like the texture of it. It feels more like a serum. I prefer a more ‘lotiony’ texture.
Josie Maran Argan Oil Light: Used in my hair. Alright argan oil. I can get organic cold pressed argan oil at other places at a fraction of the cost. I prefer the milk version from Josie Maran.

 

MayJune2.jpg

Loved, would repurchase or already have:
L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream: Loved the texture. Didn’t leave my hands greasy, just soft and moisturized.
Beauty Blender Cleanser Solid: Incredible. Cuts brush cleaning time in half.
Anastasia Brow Wiz: HG. Always repurchase.
Dior Diorshow Waterproof in Brown/Black: Diorshow regular & waterproof have been HG for a loooong time. I will probably repurchase in the future but currently am trying out other mascaras (loving Too Faced’s Better Than Sex currently.)

 

Not for me, wouldn’t repurchase:
Revlon Colorstay Concealer: Creases. Doesn’t last very long. I don’t even think I used it all up. Just tossing it out.
Bourjois 1001 Cils Lashes Mascara: Deluxe sample I got after purchasing the foundation. It made my lashes clumpy & spidery.
Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer: Creases. Separates in about two hours even after I set it with powder.
Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Skin Perfecting Makeup: This has a very strong fragrance. I feel like it just sat on top of my skin and was very obvious. I much prefer the compact version.

 

MayJune3.jpg

Loved, would repurchase or already have:
Leaders Insolution Vita Brightening x2: Gives you an amazing glow, I sometimes apply the Dr. Dennis Gross Vitamin C Serum after this if my skin is looking extra dull.
Leaders Insolution Aquaringer: Excellent for dehydrated skin. Essential for me before and after a long flight.
Leaders Insolution Aloe Soothing: I use this after at home exfoliation to re-balance skin.

 

Meehh, a maybe repurchase:
Leaders Insolution AC Clear: I’ve got a couple more, not too sure how I feel about it.
Leaders Insolution Bio Medi-Curing Aqua Dressing: It cost more than the above Aquaringer mask but it doesn’t hydrate as well, plus this type of mask doesn’t fit my face as well as the original mask.
Leaders Insolution Coconut Gel Moisturizing Recovery: It cost more than the above Aquaringer mask but it doesn’t hydrate as well, plus this type of mask doesn’t fit my face as well as the original mask.
Leaders Insolution Bio Medi-Curing Wrinkle Dressing: I need to gives this another try. Didn’t see an immediate change (maybe more hydrated) but not much. I don’t have wrinkles but it’s got some peptides in it and I'm using it more as a preventative measure.
Leaders Insolution Green Calming Energy: Mask is too small, but it’s an alright formula.

 

Not for me, wouldn’t repurchase:
Leaders Insolution Bio Medi-Curing White Dressing: It’s got menthol in it and sadly irritated my skin.
Leaders Insolution Coconut Gel Brightening Recovery: It’s got menthol in it and sadly irritated my skin.
Leaders Insolution Coconut Gel Balancing Recovery: Didn’t notice anything special.
Leaders Insolution Yellow Bright Energy: Mild brightening, prefer the Vita Brightening Mask.
Leaders Insolution Violet Anti-Oxidant Energy: ehhh…

 

MayJune4.jpg

Loved, would repurchase or already have:
Living Proof PHD Shampoo & Conditioner: I’ve got a couple of samples of it. I’ve got fine hair and it didn’t weigh down my hair and gave me more texture.
Leaders Insolution Hydrogel Therapy Under Eye Patch x2: Great to use before/after flight dehydration… or if you’ve had a couple of glasses of wine the night before. Plumps up the skin and hydrates really well. I use this and then apply my eye cream over it if I need the extra hydration.
Josie Maran Argan Milk: Loooved this. I got the deluxe sample of it. I’m using another emulsion product but I will definitely purchase a full size of this once I’m out of the other product.
Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter: Had a full size of this product a while back, the sample made me realize how much I miss the scent! I’ve got body moisturizers for days but once I’m down to a reasonable amount I will purchase this for sure.
Fresh Soy Face Cleanser x2: Used this as a morning cleanser. Didn’t leave my skin dry/tight after. Hype actually lived up!
Leaders Insolution Black Head Pore Clinic: Kinda like the Biore strips expect the main ingredient here is clay in the strip. It’s a two-step process, after the strip you apply the serum (not pictured). I noticed the next day my blackheads were much smaller but nothing amazing. It comes in a pack and I have a couple more strips left.

Tom Ford Noir fragrance sample: I love all TF fragrances I've tried, this one is no exception.

 

Not for me, wouldn’t repurchase:
My Beauty Diary Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Mask x8: I got this pack on a whim and it was an OK mask. Prefer Leaders Insolution masks.
Leaders Insolution Mediu 2-Step Double Effect Moisturizing & Wrinkle Care: Such a strange mask method. You have the regular sheet mask (step 1) and then you have some extra serum that you apply on your neck and then you have this strange contraption that you place on neck and stretch it out to your ears (step 2). It’s kind of difficult to explain, but I think it’s supposed to prevent turkey neck. Haha.
Aaalllll the foils, nothing stood out:
SKI-II Signature Eye Cream x2
Guerlain Abeille Royale Dark Spot Corrector
Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Face Polish
Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti_aging Cream
Kate Somerville Nourishing Daily Moisturizer x2

Re: Empties

WOW!! Look at all those empties!!

 

The L'Occitane Shower Oil- I was talking about this line with a friend recently- does the body oil line from them smell like almonds or does it have any peppermint in it? I know peppermint oil is in the ingredients, which is not a scent I am fond of!
