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

here is the final instalment of my may's empties.  it only took me half a month to get these up Smiley Tongue

Re: Empties

Wow! You’ve done awesome! I don’t think I’ve ever got through a lippie in my entire life, haha! @sparklekai 👀😮🤗👌

Re: Empties

RE: Empties

These are my empties for now: Loves: DE Protini, OH Balancing Force Oil Control toner and the PTR cucumber gel eye patches. All of the others are Meh... I have already another Protini cream and since I have the TO 7% glycolic acid toner to finish I won’t be purchasing the OH toner for now but I love it and it smells so good!

Re: RE: Empties

Hi @keana1,

 

How did you like the Olehenriksen Balancing Force™ Oil Control Toner? I've been loving that toner! I'm currently on my 4th bottle. Smiley Happy 

 

Best Regards,

Re: RE: Empties

@RaquelBT I absolutely love it! It smells so good and if I didn’t have the TO 7% glycolic acid toner to finish I would have ordered 2 bottles of the OH because it’s OOS often! I like that it contains both AHA and BHA.

 

Re: RE: Empties

@keana1 - I'm glad to hear that you love it as well! Ahhh, I hate that it's out of stock often! One time I hit rock bottom when I was out, so I purchased the Balance It All™ Essentials Set at my local Sephora store since it had the 2 oz/ 60 mL in this kit!

 

Best Regards,


<3 Raquel 

Re: RE: Empties

@RaquelBT I’m very lucky, I haven’t suffered from acne in my whole life but I used the OH toner just to have an extra clean effect on my skin especially during the summer! In winter my skin is rather on the dryer side so I used it every other day. But I have to finish my TO one before reordering. I don’t want to waste it since it’s a good toner! 

Re: RE: Empties

@keana1 - Oh wow! Yes, you are very lucky! I'm completely agree with you! I love feeling extra clean on my face. Toner has changed my life!

 

Best Regards,

Re: RE: Empties

@RaquelBT I would have done the same thing! 😉

RE: Empties

So excited to jump in here as I have been reading these posts for awhile now! Top row is loves, the mask doesn’t seem that hydrating but I noticed quite a difference in my skin afterwards, so it’s a keeper. I picked up 3 of the DE la la retro jars in the rewards so that is a bonus. The skyn eye hydrogel masks are a once a week treat for me. The skyn glacial and Korres yogurt cleansers were new and I loved them both! The Korres especially as it is soothing to my dry skin. Middle row, ok. The MJ gel highliner must have been old, it was dry and I used it only once. I picked up the rococo and LOVE it. The LXMI pomade was nice but the shea granules kind of bothered me. I prefer Farmacy’s Honey Savior to this for that reason alone. Bottom row, did not like. Wanted to like the Wander eye mask but they did nothing for me. Same with the Nars Orgasm- I am probably one of the few who don’t care for it! The Bite cherry exfoliating balm was awful. I stretched out the use of my DE sample by adding a few drops of Jurlique’s Facial Oil each night-it has the slightest scent of ylang ylang which is nice since the DE is unscented.

Re: RE: Empties

nice work  @eshoe!!  orgasm wasn't my cup of tea either!  i'll have to add the skyn patches to my loves list!

RE: Empties

@eshoe Thanks for your comments about the Wander Beauty eye patches, I won’t purchase them but I was planning on getting them before your feedback!

Same! I feel like eye masks are so hit-or-miss.

Re: RE: Empties

@eshoe great idea using the oil to stretch out the Lala cream. I’ve tried it before and really liked it! 

Re: RE: Empties

@eshoe Great job with samples! I’ve tried both the Honey Savior and LXMI and I feel the same way! 👍

  • deva curl ultra defining gel(holy grail gel and i miss it already! keeps my curls controlled defined but not weighed down and crunchy)
  • kms California curl up leave in conditioner

like and would use again

  • briogeo don’t despair repair deep conditioning mask
  • briogeo rosary milk reparative leave in conditioning spray

  • redken beach envy volume texturizing conditioner

 

basically these all have a common theme - my hair hated them! they didn’t give me the moisture my curls needed, made my hair feel dry, heavy and straw like. 

Re: Empties

So much haircare, I hope you had fun playing with it all @sparklekai 😄 I’m really interested in trying the Briogeo mask and spray, was there anything specific that you didn’t like about them? 

Re: Empties

@bakeamuffin its not necessarily that i didn't like them.  i liked them fine enough and i would use them again if i had them but they aren't products i'd go out and purchase.  for the spray, i actually use it to wet my hair a bit and reactivate any products in the mornings and it works fine for that - but so do cheaper leave ins and even water.  the mask again was ok but i found it to be just average. 

Re: Empties

Great job, @sparklekai!! 👍 I really liked that Briogeo hair mask too! - and it seems a lot of people love that Deva Curl! 🤗
