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

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

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

@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 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

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

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

Here's my empties from March-April. 

I tried really hard to get through some face masks that don't quite impress me before moving onto the ones I love.  The lip masks are a waste of energy.  I did have some fun with them though.  On the back of the masks it says you can apply them to your nipples so of course I had to try that out.  No results other than a tinge of entertainment with wearing ten minute pasties.  

I'll buying a full sized Stella pop perfume.  It's sweet but light enough to wear all the time.  I'm in love with the Tom Ford Portifino Neroli scent though it doesn't seem to last on me.  I'm torn due to the price.  At $255 a bottle I want staying power but gosh I love the scent so much.  I just don't know what to do. 

Briogeo Curl Charisma is awesome.  Clearly I don't have curls, but it smells wonderful and keeps my growing out damaged hair looking beautiful.  It completely tames any flyways and is very moisturizing. IMG_8828.JPG

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

Omg 😂Crying laughing at 'ten minute pasties' I would have done the exact same. Great job on the empties @heartsmyface

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.IMG_8844.JPG

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

I'm alwaÿs so in awe of everyone who uses up so many samples.  This empties post is goals for me! Lol I'm not going to lie I instantly pictured myself trying to put lip masks on my nipples as soon as I read your post and had a good laugh! I've never had much luck with any of the telly type lip masks, but maybe it's because I've never tried the alternate use! 

Re: Empties

I think they'd be fun for a masking party with close friends, just for kicks, but I seriously saw no results.  

Personally, I like hydrogel masks but not generally the ones you can get here.  They tend to be obscure Japanese brands in the ¥400-¥600 price range.

Re: Empties

I just saw this thread! I didn't save all of my empties last month, but thankfully I did still have some skincare products empties.jpglaying around! Procrastination pays off. 

Re: Empties

Nice empties! So much rainforest spray! Did you like tidal? I didn't like Tarte rainforest @blondesluv2shop.. I really wanted to like the spray but just didn't see results. It felt refreshing but no noticeable differences. I also tried the cleanser and it didn't remove even a single layer of powder shadow and the moisturizer wasn't moisturizing to me at all..
