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.
Haha pretty much! They feel soo good on my lips it makes me sad to waste them (even though I have at least one backup each) :X
NurseCupcake: My favorite is Coco Noir
Boo... the hubby threw away my shoe box full of empties. I have been saving for over a month already. And I am taking part in the Sample/Foil Packet challenge and now that I know how to properly upload photos on BT, I was so excited to post the photos! He said it looked like trash and it was just sitting on the floor so he threw it all away.
You would think I was growing a second head when I was trying to explain things to him. "Yes, honey, all of it was empty, but I was going to take a photo of all of it and put it online, and THEN I was going to throw it away. Technically it would be trash, but not yet because I wanted to show off what all I used lately..."
Lol- he was like you girls take photos of trash to put online??? Men... they just don't get it!
While we were still settling into our new home, my boyfriend decided to go through MY pile & start throwing things out. Some of those "things" were GWP tote bags that I use for odd & ends. When I questions him, his simple response was "how many tote bags do you need?" Obviously a lot LOL!
I would cry if the hubs threw away tote bags and GWP bags. I save each and every single one of them. And yes, I do have a million, but they are all cute and remind me of the purchase that I made to get it. How many tote bags do I need? ALL OF THEM! They need to know not to question us!
Oh- BTW- you were in the middle of building your own vanity. Is it done yet? I am sure a lot of people (ie... mainly me) are curious about it.
I ended up getting the PB Teen Lilac Vanity. 5 drawers... but it seems like the drawers seemed bigger online! At least all of my makeup is in one place. The samples, extra skincare, tote bags, nail polish all still are living in the linen closet. Ahhh... the life of a beauty addict!
I did finish building it. I'll have to remember to post pictures later.
I like the Lilac Vanity, but in the pictures the drawers did look a little small. I wanted the Chelsea, which doesn't look like it hold a lot. :/ I like my temporary fix for now & I'll just keep searching for the one
You know it's a good month when it takes two photos to fit everything in!

I tend to exfoliate every other day regardless of the product I'm using- have had some bad experiences with my face getting angry! I really liked the Suki exfoliator! Was surprised by how long the little jar actually lasted, and it smelled great. What stops me from repurchasing, however is the fact that it exfoliates with sugar. Sugar has sharp edges and therefore can create micro-tears all over your face and making bacteria very happy to move on in. I stick with purchasing exfoliators with round particles (and definitely made sure to scrub with this product very gently).
The Porefessional I'm kind of mixed on- while I like the smoothing effect it has on my skin/pores, I feel it makes liquid foundation easier to slide/transfer off my skin. Haven't tried it with my powder foundation oddly enough.
The Philosophy I really liked! Nice smooth texture, pleasant smell and definitely helps with acne. I've got another tube of DDF's Salicylic Acid Treatment to use- I'm trying to figure out which of the two of these works better. DDF is definitely better price/oz but I'd be happy to repurchase the Philosophy if it works better
Top is YESES
PMD Moderate disc - a constant repurchase
Odacite Jo+L - another constant repurchase, I use this every single day
Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Brows & Lashes - loved both of these. The Lashes is one of my favourite mascaras, and I really love the simplicity of the brows, though I dislike how small the product is.
Mahalo The Unveil - an absolutely gorgeous cleanser. My wallet will cry when I finally purchase a full size.
Leaves of Trees Lavender Tangerine deoderant - a natural deo that smells nice and works well. I dislike their FS packaging but the product actually works so I can't complain.
Mahalo The Bean - a lovely detoxifying but hydrating mask. My favourite new mask of 2017 - it plumps my skin and leaves it feeling so silken. Already repurchased.
NARS Soft Velvet loose powder - I use this mostly in my t-zone but it does what it says and looks natural.
Middle is MEH/UNDECIDED
Body Shop Cocoa Butter Body Butter - maybe I got a bad batch or maybe they've reformulated, but it seemed a lot thinner textured than it used to be. Wasn't a fan.
Blithe Vital Treatment Nourishing Beans - I've tried a few different essence type products over the years and I think I'm still of the mind that I don't need them in my routine. The Beans are nice, but I don't think I'll repurchase.
DDG Ferulic + Retinol Peel - I haven't used these consistently enough to form an opinion.
Bottom is NOPENOPENOPE
Odacite Green Tea Mint Purifying Toner - I just don't like this. If I used it on my face, the mint would irritate my skin. To finish it up I ended up using it in my hair and on the back of my neck when I needed to cool down.
