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.
Empties from the last 3 months. It feels good to get through products and saving empties has helped me more consciously use up what I already have instead of buying more things to try.
Nude Jelly Cleanser- Discontinued, if anybody knows of something similar, any recommendations would be would be greatly appreciated!
Soap & Glory Body Wash- love this for the scent!
SR Good Genes- I recently finished a 0.5 oz bottle and have been refilling it with these samples from an old promo. When I stop using this I can actually see a negative difference in my skin.
FAB Radiance Pads- effective and reasonably priced. I have a few other acids I'm working my way through so I will probably hold off on repurchasing right away. Currently using N ip + Fab extra strength pads and I definitely don't like them as much as FAB.
L'occitane Almond Shower Oil- I know a lot of people like the scent of this but I'm actually not a big fan.I love using this for shaving.
Sephora Quill lashes- These are my perfect lashes. My eyes are on the smaller side and a lot of highly recommended lashes look ridiculous on me. These are full, provide a bit of length and aren't too obvious which is exactly what I'm looking for. Unfortunately I ruined a pair when I started using my TTDO balm before removing them. I didn't get much on the lashes but it was enough to cause them to separate.
Algenist Eye Renewal Balm- I always pick this on up when it's on promo. I don't necessarily notice any minimizing of lines but I like this for daytime under makeup, a little goes a long way.
E&J Nirvana Dry Shampoo- Good but leaves me wanting more. Can easily leave residue marks in my black hair if I'm not careful but soaks up oils better than other dry shampoos I've tried.
DDG Alpha Beta Glow Pads- Nice but can start to look orange on my medium olive skin if used more than 2 days in a row. When I use up the box I plan to try the Clarins Glow Booster.
SR Tidal & CEO- I used CEO on nights I wanted extra hydration. Did not use long/consistently enough to notice any vitamin C brightening effects. Tidal was nice but I have enough deluxe sized moisturizers I don't think I'll need to buy anything for awhile lol.
Hourglass 1.5MM Eyeliner- I actually loved this but it ran out way too fast. Right now I'm using the Clinique Skinny Stick eyeliner. I prefer the HG one and actually think the Skinny Stick might be being discontinued.
Fresh Sugar Lip Balms- Deluxe sizes from a holiday set. I love love love the formula and subtle colors but the packaging is terrible. When you get to the bottom there is actually a lot of product left that can be scooped out from the plastic part that twists up.
Oribe Royal Blowout- This lasted a really time making it a good value. It promises a lot but is just average imo.
Clinique brow gel- I thought this dried out quickly. When it comes to tinted brow gel I prefer Glossier's Boybrow.
Lush Charity Pot Body Lotion- I love the ingredients of Lush products but this one left me feeling sticky.
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye- the only thing I really disliked. No matter how thick of a layer I put on I felt like it wasn't moisturizing enough.
This is awesome. I have a big post coming because I have (unintentionally) been saving up since the beginning of the year. My bag is practically overflowing at this point and now I just need to get my act together to photograph & post.
Im the same way with saving empties helping me use up products I already have. Ive been on a low but in 2017 and this has helped me realize how much I already have to use.
I too scoop out balm from from sticks that appear to be used up. It constantly amazes me how much product is left in there. I've never been a fan of using a lip brush when I'm out and about, but at home while putting on my make up, heck yes. Fresh and the Dior balms are two of the biggest culprits!
When I first noticed it I was amazed too! It wasn't until my 3rd or 4th tube that I noticed it either which means I threw away a bunch of product. Also, a lip brush is a good idea, I usually snap a q-tip in half and scoop it out that way lol
Yay for my first empties post! I'm usually too lazy to keep all my empties and toss them as soon as I finish, but I still have these! I got lucky, these are all likes/loves!
Mario: This was nice and I like the smell. It didn't dry out my skin and the price is friendly. I'm so excited to finally have finished this since I've had it for almost 2 years! I use it to tone after I've washed my face and it helps remove the extra makeup by my hair line. I use it to clean my neck as well.
Clinique eye cream: this is lovely. I don't have much experience with eye creams but it definitely makes the area feel more moisturized. It doesn't help with the dark eye area like it claims, but most eye products people swear by haven't worked for me, so I have no complaints.
Lalicious: OMG i love this!!! I wasn't expecting much but it works amazingly! It makes my skin very smooth and this specific smell is heavenly. I love how refreshing the lemon scent is. I just wish this stuff wasnt so dang expensive!
Not pictured-Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet: I love this also! It made my skin so supple and soft and not greasy at all. I didn't have any dry patches from using this and it didn't make me break out or anything! The only negative is I wish i didn't have a scent, but luckily it's not cloying. The sample (.33oz) lasted me a few weeks. It rocks! Idt I would buy it since there are cheaper moisturizers that have similar effects for me, but if it's ever a GWP, I'll definitely redeem it.
Only on BT would someone call themselves lazy for throwing away their trash😄
I've never heard of Lalicious but will be looking them up in a moment. It'll be a long while before I buy more body lotion but they're now on my radar. Thanks!
Haha, perhaps BT warps my reality sometimes
I'd never heard of the brand before either, but I wanted a new body scrub and took a chance. I definitely love it. I've tried a few of their scents now and the lemon is definitely my favorite. @heartsmyface
Did you get that during the crazy People shop sale? That's when I got my Lalicious. I just used a big tub up (I think it was vanilla coconut) and now will be using my smaller tubs.

I love Tony Moly masks! I just went to their free standing store the other day and grabbed a bunch. My friend also gifted me that Thayers toner a few years ago. Although I have toners that work a little bit better for me, I still enjoyed it. (:
I didn't even know they had a freestanding store. That's awesome! I wish we had one here in Chicago. I'm just excited when I can go to the little K beauty stores at the HMart.
Mine results in March. 32 product together.
"Pain of the month" award goes to May Lindstom Youth Dew. It was way to heavy for my skin so I ended using it around my eyes (and as a neck cream). I spend more then a month trying to calm down extra oil produce on my face after ML.
Loves (tried all before)
Loves (new discoveries, tried for the first time). I really loved to mix Kevyn Aucoin with my BB cream, but I`m not sure, if I need the whole package. Indee Lee oil was used on neck and I like it - not too oily, not too sticky or smelly. Likes
I had the same thought about the Youth Dew. I know people rave about May Lindstrom but that oil is so thick, and I say that as someone who has chronically dry skin after 2 rounds of accutane, and it still seemed too heavy to me. I also found the smell really noxious. It took me awhile to use it without gagging.
