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've been traveling non-stop for the past few months and here are my empties for the months of May & June:

IMG_0641.JPGOnly thing I liked here was the Bliss. I already repurchased this. It doesn't give you a 6 pack but it does firm and tone that area especially if combined w/ exercise.

Thought everything else was ok. Vaseline has a good concept but wasnt moisturizing enough for me.

 

IMG_4584.jpgNever use wipes but I forgot my cleanser on this trip. I'm glad I got these, they werent too bad. Loved everything else!

 

IMG_0635.JPGI bought the ojon hair mask but unfortunately got the wrong one! I got the that has added antioxidants I believe but I prefer this one.

Love everything except for the cotton pads, Benefit mascara and the candle on the right corner. Caudalie, Dior, Kilian & Dyptique were a big thumbs up! Michael Aram candle was amazing as per usual!

Dyptique Candle I loved so much, was from Christmas. It smelled of cider and pine. It was amazing I'm sad to see it go but it's summer time! lol

 

IMG_0638.JPGHated that Soap & Glory Shimmer thing. It wasn't flattering at all. Didn't finish it but had to can this since it turned yellow.

Hated that Ren cleanser. Made me break out.

Liked the It's a 10 but I'm getting tired of it! I made the huge mistake of buying this in the jumbo size. I've been using it for 3, yes that's right 3 whole years.

Glamglow was ok but I prefer the black one.

Loved the beauty mask diary and the Korres body wash even though I felt like it was a bit drying towards the end of it.

Kate Somerville is always ❤️ for me!

 

 

L'oreal Shampoo makes my highlights look amazing!

Fresh I got this lotion in a set and it smells good and very moisturizing ❤️ it!

Roto love this stuff for when I'm traveling, my eyes get super dry and this is the only thing that has ever wrked for me!

Dr Teals love this soak for those days I'm feeling sore from working out

 

Re: Empties

Lol you weren't kidding when you said in an earlier comment that we used similar products! I agree with with all of your mini reviews except for the Exfolikate. I just couldn't get over the smell. I agree with the Vaseline Spray, great concept but not enough for my dry skin. I heard the St. Ives is supposed to be more hydrating. I wanna give that one a try since I it's such a pain to try to moisturizer my back with regular lotions.

Re: Empties

I actually just picked up the St Ives! Excited to try it 🙂 Wont be in my next empties since Im trying to go through 2 already opened lotions -.-.

I don't mind the smell of it but then again I'm a chef and I get used to smells fairly quick since I have no other choice! lol

Re: Empties

Nice empties!! Love your carpet 😛

 

I don't know what it is about the Korres Shower Gel packaging, but I am dyyyinnng to try those 😄

Re: Empties

I love Korres! My favorite is the cedar one. Try it! Let us know how much you love it 😉

Re: Empties

Ack, sadly I've been on a no-shower-gel no-buy for eternity and probably have a long way to go... I used to have Bath & Body Works obsession and have a HUGE stockpile of shower gel, butters, lotion, etc. I've been making my way through but probably have enough to last me at least another year!

Re: Empties

I have always wanted to try some of the Bliss Fatgirl products, but I was so skeptical.  Maybe, now that I read a real review, I can try something.

 

I cannot read what the Chi product is, but if it is a heat protectant, I got one of those when I purchased my blow dryer last year.  I have never used the product though, because I have only used the blow dryer three times.  I am an air dry girl mostly.

 

I have a mini It's a 10 that I cannot wait to try.  I am working on another leave in conditioner and try to have only one open at a time.

Re: Empties

I got a trio pack as a gift but only used the scrub. However this stuff I love the scrub i just thought it smelled nice but no noticeable differences.

Yeah its the heat protectant. It was good nothing that wowed me but got the job done.

I saw your pic w/ it looks great! It was HG for me but now I'm kind of over it! lol

Re: Empties

tell me about this bliss tummy toning gel. what results did you have?

Re: Empties

I personally love it! I'm on my 4th bottle of this stuff! I massage it really well before going to the gym. I have blood circulation problems and get bloated easily and this is amazing! Especially now during summer months 😉

Spoiler

Ole Henrisken Blue/Black Berry Enzyme Mask- this isn't truly empty, about 2/3 full. Hated so much that I have to get rid of though, stings like crazy and I hate the feeling of gel products. Hate the smell too! 😞

 

Body Shop Vit E Sink-In Moisture Mask- meh. Used it up, but wasn't fond of it. Also stung slightly, odd for a moisturizing mask. Felt uncomfortable on skin too. 

 

Beauty Protector Shampoo & Conditioner- average products, but smell SO CRAZY GOOD. Very gourmand smell to them, wish it existed in a perfume!!

 

Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv Cream Cleanser- Oh. My. God. This stuff is like pure gold. And for $50 a bottle, I know why. Hands down, best cream cleanser I've ever used. Can't afford it though, so I'll have to get it from GWPs 😄

 

REN Radiance Perfection Serum- really good! Really brightened my skin, smells like raw pumpkin. Zero breakouts or sensitivity.

 

Bath & Body Works Black Currant Vanilla Hand Soap

 

Bath & Body Works Shower Gels- Apricot Vanilla, Wild Honeysuckle. Two of my top fav fragrances from BBW 🙂

 

Styled Pure Happy Smooth Keratin- didn't work for me, but then again pretty much nothing does work with my hair!

 

Caudalie Divine Oil- oh my Lord this stuff was divine (see what I did there?). Absolutely loved the product, but not in love with it to pay the price for a full size. Smells a bit like tootsie rolls to me??

 

Sephora Advanced Lash Booster- good, but dried out very quickly. I've had this a bit too long, but it has been sealed in plastic, not sure if that might be the issue.

 

Tarte Lights Camera Lashes- too dry. Not sure how long I've had this one either

 

Anastasia Lash Genius- HG. Probably my 5th or so in a row.

 

H20 Optimum Cleanser- very nice, would consider repurchasing.

 

Chanel Ultra Correction Line Repair Eye Cream- nice, not worth the price

 

Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream- fantastic healing cream, but very comparable to FAB Ultra Repair, which is a fraction of the price of this.

 

Origins A Perfect World Moisturizer- made my skin very shiny under foundation, only used a couple times before giving up

 

Stila Perfecting Concealer- have had for way too long, time to toss. Too thick, difficult to work with and I think this exacerbated acne spots.

 

Korres Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial- like the Greek Yogurt version, this stung badly. Only used 1-2 times.

 

Sisley Paris Black Rose Cream Mask- very nice, smelled great, very hydrating. Definitely not going to pay full price for this stuff though- $158 for 2 oz??? What the fook??

 

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum- this did absolutely nothing for my skin. Pass.

Spoiler

Stila In the Light

 

Swisspers Cotton Rounds

 

Korres Pomegranate Wipes- I think these made my face more sensitive? Going to pass the last pack of these I have on to someone else.

 

Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser Shampoo/Conditioner/Masque- bleck, weighted my hair down and made it look greasy.

 

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil/Endless Summer- bought the full size of Endless Summer after using! Already have a Choc Soleil deluxe, which is a bit too dark for me but with some blending I can make work.

 

Kate Somerville Dilo Oil- fantastic product, smells crazy good and my skin loved it.

 

Dr. Weil Mega-Bright Eye Cream- made my eyes look more tired. Hard pass.

 

FAB Purifying Mask- My skin liked it, but this was a bit too minty/tingly for my personal tastes.


Lancome Visionnaire- loved. Definitely making part of my full time regimen.

 

REN Resufacing AHA Concentrate- definitely made an impact on my skin's brightness and reduced pigmentation! One little packet of this stuff lasted me a whole week!

 

Philosophy Full Of Promise Day/Night Serum- loved the day version. The texture of the night version reminded me exactly of Smashbox's Primers, which break me out within hours, so I didn't use it.

 

Philosophy Eye Hope- this wouldn't sink into my skin and would pill off a couple hours after applying. Pass.

 

Tokyomilk La Vie La Mort- really beautiful flower scent, loved the hand cream as well, not greasy at all.

 

Kate Spade Twirl- Really like, own a full size.

 

Roses De Chloe- initially loved, but by the end of this sample vial I was tired of it. Glad I didn't purchase a full size.

 

 

 

Re: Empties

Have you noticed a significant difference in wear between the endless summer bronzer and the chocolate soleil?  I also have 2 deluxe samples of chocolate soleil but after those are up, I'll need to purchase a full size. 

Re: Empties

In terms of wear time, they both perform very well. I prefer the lighter color and *slight* shimmer to the Endless Summer for my pale skin 🙂

Re: Empties

I agree with you on Visionnaire.  How do you blend the chocolate soliel to lighten it up?  I got another deluxe size in my sun safety kit.  Before I give another one away, I want to see if I can get it to work for me.  I love the milk chocolate one.

Re: Empties

I use a blush brush and lightly dust it in the appropriate places and then take a larger, dense brush and buff the heck out of it so it blends nicely in with my powder foundation. I just have to be careful to use a light hand or I can easily overdo it 🙂 The milk chocolate would definitely be much more appropriate for my ghost-like complexion, but like you I got this one for free and will try to use it up!

Re: Empties

I tried the chocolate soleil this evening with a light hand and it worked out.  you just can't be as carefree with the application as you would with the milk chocolate but it definitely is workable!!! 

Re: Empties

Glad it worked for you! 🙂

Re: Empties

You two have convinced me to give it a try.  I have not seen the person I was planning on giving it to in a long time, and I never told her I was going to give it to her either.  No shame in keeping it now.

Re: Empties

I am going to be soooooo bronzed in a week!!!!  lol!  I have that little black book coming!!!  Prepare for a very brown leah!!!  I really hope I get it before Toor Camp. 

Re: Empties

As always, nice work!!! So many full and deluxe sizes. I'm impressed!

Re: Empties

Well i'm so excited that i have Empties! I was looking through my bathroom and was able to come across these!!!
