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

I do too! I just finished off a body butter last night from The Body Shop

Re: Empties

I love using up stuff! It feels so rewarding lol

Re: Empties

I try to use up as much as I can too justify my makeup purchases, but I still buy way more than I use up

Re: Empties

I think we all have that problem here 😕 lol

Re: Empties

I've used up my devacurl conditioner in the regular sized bottle, and I just purchased the 32 oz because I love it so much!

Re: Empties

Deva curl is my favorite, I keep getting samples everytime I make an order just so I can have them for travel

Re: Empties

I love Devacurl too.  It works really well for my hair.  And I've noticed that my color lasts longer now that I use the no poo.  

Re: Empties

Awesome! I've heard great things about Devacurl I'll definitely have to check it out!

Re: Empties

I'll join in on the fun!



Murad acne body wash - worked at first then stopped and I started getting big acne welts, not repurchasing


John Frieda Frizz-Ease dream curls spray - love, love love, already have back up


Satin Care shave gel - okay, found something better that makes my legs feel silky smooth for days after; surprisingly it is Johnson's baby oil body wash w/ shea and cocoa butter


Blink eye drops - a must for my dry eyes, already have back up


Whish shaving lotion - okay, smelled like blueberries, not purchasing


Sephora intensive instant moisture - my face is very particular, it was very fragrant so I decided not to risk it on my face and just used it for my hands, very moisturizing but not worth the price for my hands.


Fragrance samples (Giorgio Armani Acqua di Giola and Michael Kors Gold) - I liked them both, thinking about them in the future


Estee Lauder Advanced night repair serum - another love, I will repurchase after I go through other serum samples I have.

Re: Empties

I keep hearing great things about the John Frieda Frizz-Ease line I must check it out!

Re: Empties

Yes. The products for straight and curly/wavy hair are all great.

Ulta Shower Smoothie in Tangerine Dream

Bath & Body Works Peony and Berry Vanilla Shower Gels

Bath & Body Works Body Lotion in Candy Apple

(won't be repurchasing anything body wash or lotion related- I have enough for a year (or two), and need to use up my stash!)

Simple Exfoliating Wipes- love these, having been using for a long time and have backups!

Wei To Go Ideal Skin Perfect Finish (CC Cream)- love, already have repurchased

Tresemme Split Remedy Serum- won't repurchase, didn't do much

Clinique Liquid Facial Soap- ok, but I want something with salicylic acid

Body Shop Peppermint Smoothing Pumice Foot Scrub- wasn't any grittier than the other scrubs I own, and frankly I don't like peppermint

Beauty Protector Leave In Conditioner- didn't do much

Bumble & Bumble Thickening Shampoo/Conditioner- ok, won't be repurchasing

Organix Argan Oil and Shea Butter Mask- smells absolutely divine but didn't do anything special for my hair sadly


Wasn't really a month for trying out a lot of samples, but I was happy to get rid of a lot of full-size items!

Re: Empties

I'm with you, I've told myself I absolutely can not buy any more lotions shower gels or exfoliators until I use mine ALL up. And really glad to know about the Organix Argan Oil Mask I was thinkign about trying it out.

Re: Empties

Solidarity sister! I'm going on 7 months of no purchases of body products, and I'm finally starting to make a little room in the storage bins for these items! I have a serious candle hoarding problem too.


My hair is extremely particular. Until very recently, I had not found any products (and I've experimented quite a bit) that really were amazing for my hair. I wouldn't take my advise to heart- just because it didn't work for me doesn't mean it won't work for you!

Re: Empties

I'm going on an absolute no buy until I use up everything! I'm gonna be strong lol I should probably do that for candles too... I honestly have way too many I've used up two though 😄 that counts for something

Re: Empties

I've only used up:

  • Glamglow Mud Mask (black). Might try the white jar this time, but am also thinking the Boscia Black Mask. What are your thoughts?
  • Almost done with deluxe sample of Caudalie Cleansing Water and DEFINITELY repurchasing, but waiting for the 12th 😉 
  • Inglot YSM foundation. Really liked it, but think their foundation shades are just a tad too pink for me, so probably won't repurchase.

Re: Empties

I got an in-store sample of Glamglow and I know people rave about it but honestly it hasn't been doing much for my black heads :< I love Caudalie though 😄

Re: Empties

Glamglow didn't seem to do anything about my blackheads either. It was really cool to see the matrix as it dried, but that's about it 😕

Right now I'm trying out Dr. Dennis Gross Extra Strength Alpha Beta Face Peel to combat blackheads and the texture (whiteheads) on my chin. It says it's not for sensitive skin, but I've had no problem with pain or redness. In fact, I think it's helping! I need to give it more time to confirm results though.

Re: Empties

I'll have to keep up with you! It seems we both have stubborn blackheads! I've been using the Peter Thomas Roth Complexion Pads and my Clarasonic and so far that seems to have been the best but I still have those stubborn black dots :<

Re: Empties

@Kiki1517 you should check out this thread, a lot of people have compared mask and shared experiences on different mask and those three are in there if you look through the thread.


I've used all 3 of the mask, and a like both GlamGlow but for each different reasons, The Boscia Black mask hurt so much 😞

Re: Empties

Thanks, I will look at this thread 🙂
