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

so you finished the dr. brandt? Why I have I not been updated on this?!?! 

Re: Empties

@dannyc. Well, I haven't finished the pink day cream yet. I didn't like either of the glow duos. I think they speed up the acne/surfacing on the chin, unless that was just hormone. However, they didn't have any effect on the Big Boss, the bumps on my cheeks. I'm using Skinfood peach sake serum + Koh Gen Do moisturizer at night, and the retinol/shiseido for day. When I'm done with the day cream I'll move on to the other exfoliator/peel options.

Re: Empties

I was gonna ask if you cut up the tubes thanks for the answer lol. 

Re: Empties

I do indeed. I like tubes because it's more sanitary/minimal air exposure, but you'd be surprised by how much you can get after you squeezed everything out from the tube. I always manage to get at least a sample jar's worth (2-3 more use) after I cut them up.

Re: Empties

IMG_20130831_022322.jpgI was too lazy to do this all in one post lol so here's the rest. 

Slatkin and Co candles (x2) one in Peach Bellini not sure about the other one... I love these candles nuff said lol. I also love cleaning out the jars and using them for whatever.

Certain Dri AM- may be weird to post this but this is my fav deodorant lol, I'm a sweaty girl and this helps keep me fresh and what not. 

Tokidoki Perfetto Eyeliner - throwing out, its just running really weirdly.

The Sacred Truth Fresh Face mask Lush- I got way more uses out of this one then  most, I liked it enough to maybe get another one lol.

Korres Body Butter in Guava - So proud of myself lol, this may be the first body lotion I've used up Smiley Happy not repurchasing, so thick and heavy!

The Snowman Philosophy Shower gel - I really like this Smiley Very Happy but I don't like that it has sulfates Smiley Sad 

Josie Maan Argan Oil Hair Serum- this is heavier than just plain argan oil but I think its really sticky didn't like.

YSL Top Secrets Pro Removers - YUCK! So heavily fragranced and made my face sticky :<

Pangea Organics Facial Cleanser Australian Wild plum and willow - I really liked this! More cleaners to go through first though. 

Happy Birthday Beautiful! Philosophy shower gel - see other philosophy shower gel.

Soy Renewal healthysexyhair - I'm finding out I REALLY like hair oils lol, I really liked this one I have a couple more hair oils to use before I decide which one I will buy though. 

pores no more cleaner dr. brandt - bottle of lies! This did nothing for my pores, but its a good cleanser lol.

Re: Empties

I find it really funny that not only do we both still have the happy birthday philosophy shower gel, but we both decided to use it up in the same month Smiley Very Happy

Re: Empties

Haha  I was thinking that when I saw your post Smiley Tongue

Re: Empties

I heard a lot of good things about the Healthy Sexy hair soy renewal spray so I bought a travel size one on sale at Ulta, but like you I have so many other things to use up that I haven't had a chance to try it yet! Smiley Sad

Re: Empties

I have a ton of hair oils but I just decided to use it this month!

Re: Empties

I already have one empty for next time woohoo Smiley Happy!

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 think I'm going to try to keep my August empties, I'm curious to know how much I actually can use in a month!

Re: Empties

Yay! hopefully at the end of the month we see a lot more pictures on here!

Re: Empties

I'll be keeping mine too.  I am hoping to go through some products before the bonus point days, but a girl can only use so much blush before she looks like a clown.  

Re: Empties

LOL!!! I must, I must, I must use up my blush!

Re: Empties

I've realized that this is impossible for me oh Well Smiley Very Happy

Re: Empties

Empties from the last 3 months. It feels good to get through products and  saving empties has helped me more consciously use up what I already have instead of buying more things to try.

Spoiler

Nude Jelly Cleanser- Discontinued, if anybody knows of something similar, any recommendations would be would be greatly appreciated!

Soap & Glory Body Wash- love this for the scent! 

SR Good Genes- I recently finished a 0.5 oz bottle and have been refilling it with these samples from an old promo. When I stop using this I can actually see a negative difference in my skin.
FAB Radiance Pads- effective and reasonably priced. I have a few other acids I'm working my way through so I will probably hold off on repurchasing right away. Currently using N ip + Fab extra strength pads and I definitely don't like them as much as FAB.

L'occitane Almond Shower Oil- I know a lot of people like the scent of this but I'm actually not a big fan.I love using this for shaving.

Sephora Quill lashes- These are my perfect lashes. My eyes are on the smaller side and a lot of highly recommended lashes look ridiculous on me. These are full, provide a bit of length and aren't too obvious which is exactly what I'm looking for. Unfortunately I ruined a pair when I started using my TTDO balm before removing them. I didn't get much on the lashes but it was enough to cause them to separate. 

Algenist Eye Renewal Balm- I always pick this on up when it's on promo. I don't necessarily notice any minimizing of lines but I like this for daytime under makeup, a little goes a long way.

E&J Nirvana Dry Shampoo- Good but leaves me wanting more. Can easily leave residue marks in my black hair if I'm not careful but soaks up oils better than other dry shampoos I've tried.

DDG Alpha Beta Glow Pads- Nice but can start to look orange on my medium olive skin if used more than 2 days in a row. When I use up the box I plan to try the Clarins Glow Booster.

SR Tidal & CEO- I used CEO on nights I wanted extra hydration. Did not use long/consistently enough to notice any vitamin C brightening effects. Tidal was nice but I have enough deluxe sized moisturizers I don't think I'll need to buy anything for awhile lol.

Hourglass 1.5MM Eyeliner- I actually loved this but it ran out way too fast. Right now I'm using the Clinique Skinny Stick eyeliner. I prefer the HG one and actually think the Skinny Stick might be being discontinued.

Fresh Sugar Lip Balms- Deluxe sizes from a holiday set. I love love love the formula and subtle colors but the packaging is terrible. When you get to the bottom there is actually a lot of product left that can be scooped out from the plastic part that twists up.

Meh/wouldn't repurchase:

Spoiler

Oribe Royal Blowout- This lasted a really time making it a good value. It promises a lot but is just average imo.

Clinique brow gel- I thought this dried out quickly. When it comes to tinted brow gel I prefer Glossier's Boybrow.

Lush Charity Pot Body Lotion- I love the ingredients of Lush products but this one left me feeling sticky.

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye- the only thing I really disliked. No matter how thick of a layer I put on I felt like it wasn't moisturizing enough.

 

 

Re: Empties

This is awesome.  I have a big post coming because I have (unintentionally) been saving up since the beginning of the year.  My bag is practically overflowing at this point and now I just need to get my act together to photograph & post.
