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.
I'm excited i have empties!!!!! 😄
Nexxus YSerum Restore Shampoo- I also finished the Conditioner awhile back and i hate them both. I will most likely not use Nexxus again.
Dermorganic Hair Masque- I still have the Shampoo and i do like them but not enough to rebuy them.
Macadamia Natural Moisturizing Rinse- Not a huge fan of this or the Shampoo!! I'll stick to using only the Masque, Oil, And cream from this brand.
Alterna Luminous Shine Shampoo- I'm not sure how i feel about this or the conditioner, The smell is alittle weird to me, it's not something i would use again.
Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti Frizz Conditioner- I felt like this and the Shampoo were really thick. I wasn't a fan the very first time i used them. But i started to like the conditioner on it's own after a few uses. If it was on sale i might buy it.
Murad Clarifying Cleanser- Uhm if you know me, it's a no brainer.... I LOVE this cleanser!
PTR Anti Aging Cleansing Gel- It's alright, I've got another bottle of this lying around i'll get around to using it sometime, but i wouldn't buy it again.
Sephora by OPI Nail polish remover- Gets the job done fast and easy. I will most likely buy it again when i run out of what i currently have
GlamGlow Super Mud- No way would i repurchase. I went though that tiny thing wayyyyy too fast. And didn't do anything significant
MUFE Aqua Cream in 13 Warm Beige- I used half and it dried up so i'm counting it as empty cause it's useless. But not a fan. I bought it cause a MUFE MUA used it on me but it just didn't work when i tried and creased most the time.
Tarte Maracuja Oil- I hate the way it smells, doesn't do anything that my Argan oil doesn't do.
Great idea for a board. Sadly you won't see much of me here. I rarely finish anything besides toothpaste and eyedrops 😞
I do pass a lot of things on though. I seem to have plenty of friends and family who don't mind acquiring semi-used products. I actually keep a supply of small colored gift bags for packing guests up when they leave. OMG- I just realized how weird that is. People come over for dinner and leave with used swag instead of leftovers.
I do the same thing as well!!! I call it my Sephora Grab Bag. I put some foil packets, perfume samples, and deluxe samples that I have multiple of, or ones that I will not use in a medium size Sephora bag as a grab bag for friends and family. Every time I have a girlfriend over, she gets to reach into that bag and grab as many samples as she wants.
I have another bag full of gently used items that I pass on as well. My family members and a few close friends don't mind products that I swatched or used a couple times and don't want it anymore or don't like. My littlest sister doesn't even buy makeup. She always waits to go through my Grab Bag and the bag of used makeup to get her fix.
Totally not weird, I do the same thing. And people LOVE it!
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.
This thread helps me remember to (a) try to use something up instead of just getting bored and moving to something else and (b) throw empties in a bag and save up for snapshot and sharing!
I almost never use up skincare and makeup, but I'm trying to do better about that and see how using things consistently will do for me! I'm also going to go through my samples and try to group them together to use up. Also, I've recently had to throw out some older deluxe samples, so I kind of realized it's silly to hoard these things if they will just go bad eventually!
Oh word I should have known there was a thread for this! I have a lot to contribute LOL!

It's mind blowing how little makeup I actually use UP compared to skincare. In fairness, my gf uses a lot of my skincare too but we have massively different makeup preferences (we only fight over ONE item - Tarte airbuki bamboo brush. We both love that one to pieces, but can't justify buying a second BRUSH lol!)
Every month in 2017 thus far I've used 26 products, my mini goal for May was to use up 30. I overachieved and had 45 empties and 10 declutters! My goal for June is to use 40, I've finally got some space in my day to day areas having used up a number of already opened products, now I'm moving on to stashed samples.
