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

The imagery right?  Just so I don't appear crazy, here's a picture that shows they're intended for the alternative use.

Re: Empties

I can't read the Korean, but a few of my favourite words, vitamin E, collagen, hylauronic acid. And the photos help, how would you not! Haha

Re: Empties

Did you like the panda's dream eye patch? I've been wanting to try it. Thanks!

Re: Empties

It was cute on and made me smile (already a win there) though I'm assuming you have to use them on the regular to get any under eye lightening effects.  I still really did appreciate the extra moisture around my eyes and the diminished eye bags.  I'm sure I could've achieved the same effect with cold teabags but hey. I've already repurchased a few more of these so I can do a more honest review of them.  They're fairly inexpensive and with the cute factor I couldn't resist.

Re: Empties

Oh boo.  Did the skin Iceland eye patches do anything?  I've been saving a sample so I guess I can find out for myself.  Not as enthusiastic about them now. 

Re: Empties

I just have to jump in and say that I love the skin iceland patches, so don't give up hope yet!  They are super cooling and make my eyes look younger and  like I am completely awake, plus they depuff like a boss - I definitely hoarded the samples I had since they are expensive!  Smiley Wink

 

ETA: I would love to hear @KellW's thoughts on the cloud cream though - it's been super hyped on social media, but I haven't tried the sample from play this month yet.  

Re: Empties

@Milou07 When I first tried the cream, it was nice and I bought it. By the time I finished it, I felt like it didn't last long enough for me to justify $55 ( I bought it mid to late February and finished it beginning of April, for reference). I used it twice a day, and while it was a nice, light moisturizer for the day time; it was not enough for me. I have dry/normal skin so intense moisture is what I'm looking for. I personally find the consistency on my skin to be somewhat similar to The Ordinary moisturizer I just finished up.

 

On another note, all I'm looking for in eye patches are hydration. And my eyes aren't naturally puffy so I wouldn't be able to tell if a product can depuff. This is why I love looking at a bunch of different reviews before buying. Smiley Wink

Re: Empties

@Milou07@KellW I bought the cloud cream and find it super light and hydrating.  It reminds me very much of belief Aqua bomb in consistency, but without the citrusy scent.  Its unscented.  I find its nice before putting on primer since it absorbs well and doesn't mess with any of my makeup products.  I can't comment on the 72 hour moisture claim.

Re: Empties

@heartsmyface that actually makes a lot of sense now why I wasn't impressed. I tried both the moisturizing bomb and aqua bomb from belief. I found the aqua bomb to not have enough hydration for my skin while the moisturizing bomb was just enough hydration. I will say that my makeup always looked really nice over the cream, I just wasn't satisfied with the rest of it. So @Milou07 if you have tried (and liked the level of hydration you got from) the aqua bomb, you might like this cream Smiley Happy

Re: Empties

ThanksSmiley Happy. I think I'll pull them out give them a shot in the morningSmiley Happy 

Re: Empties

@heartsmyface you might like them. I'm more interested in hydrating my under-eye area than anything else. If didn't feel hydrating while on, and it didn't wow me at all. It wasn't bad, but it's not for me.

Re: Empties

I'm so bad... I never have empties Smiley Sad I always seem to move onto a new product before I can finish another 

Terrible, I know! 

Re: Empties

I'm definitely like that! So I just got it in my head that I HAVE to use up stuff before I can buy more, point blank. Mainly for non cosmetic stuff though lol.

Re: Empties

I always say that... but it never works Smiley Sad 

Re: Empties

Hide things from yourself lol, in my shower I only have two body washes, both which are almost gone and only one conditioner and shampoo so that I'll finish them before I start using other stuff.

Re: Empties

I used to be like that but then the cabinet I keep my makeup and skincare stash was overflowing. That made me decide to keep only one of each type of product out at a time so to use something else I either have to finish that one or switch it out with my stash. It helped me figure out what I actually like because those things never got switched out but used up and the repurchased

Re: Empties

That's what I did for last yr, so right now I'm still finishing half used products from last yr. =X

Re: Empties

I actually manage to finish off a lot of things, I even manage to finish off a nail polish and a lipstick last week. I've never finished either of those things before.

Re: Empties

@GGrace-- That is truely impressive, nail polish AND lipstick Smiley Happy

Re: Empties

I know! I can't believe that actually happened and it probably wont happen again for a very long time, if ever

Re: Empties

Nice job!

 

Did your Murad Lightening Gel turn brown?

Re: Empties

Very brown. I distinctly remember it was either clear or slightly yellow last time I checked, this time it's definitely brown. Bye bye Murad. T.T

Re: Empties

Brown? Why did it turn? That's odd
