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

nice!!! this is the kind of product destruction i like!!!

Re: Empties

My boyfriend thinks i'm nuts. I actually made a spreadsheet of my empties with whether or not I would repurchase! haha. I'm up to 96 items on the spreadsheet, but MOST of those are samples…..

Re: Empties

okay Sighs I am kind of a hoarder when it comes to makeup I don't ever want my stuff to end so I prolong it as long as possible. this is what I've got so far...it's not much but it's something & i will continually add more by re-editing my post the more I go through in the month of  January.

As of right now I've used up:

  • Origins - plantscription anti-aging oil-free cream
  • Benefit Stay Flawless -Sample
  • Burt's Bee's Coconut foot cream - Travel size bottle
  • Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment sugar - mini

 

Re: Empties

I will be repurchasing both the burt's bee's coconut foot cream  & the fresh sugar lip treatment in full sizes the benefit primer however was good as a sample just not something I want to spend 32.00 on as a full size item still pondering the origins plantscription i love the way it treated my face just don't love the price. don't know if I will buckle & buy or hold off a while I have a few more samples of it to help sway my opinion which is always a good thing. 

Re: Empties

My empties this month! 

I challenged myself to finish all opened products before I move on to others. And well, shower gels were used by my BF and me Smiley Happy 

IMG_1808.JPG

What I will repurchase: 

Shower gels (I liked them all)

Guerlain foundation - I used a sample and I loved it!

Rhonda Allison raspberry toner

KDG Spa water

OH Vitamin C truth serum

Wella hair mask

 

Maybe (after I run out of everything)

Boscia cleanser and moisturizer

The rest - I didn't care enough to consider repurchasing. 

Re: Empties

Nicely done!

Re: Empties

I don't have any photos of my empties as I didn't find this thread until mid December. And to list what all I used up or had to toss due to expiration dates or time opened last year  would take hours.

 

However the following I would repurchase or have repurchased & am currently using:

 

Algenist Retinol Serum & also their Lifting & Friming vream.

Elizabeth Arden Ceramide face & eye capsules as well as the toner.

Lipgloss from Smashbox, Ulta & LORAC

Mascara from LORAC, Smashbox

Eyeliner- Stila liquid & pencil,  Smashbox cream. LORAC dream & liquid/gel, Tarte & UD pencil

 Sunscreen: PTR Glycolic Acid Moisture & also Max Sheer SPF 30

Primer Hourglass Veil  or Smashbox Photo finish Light, Tarte Brightening

Blush- NARS Sin & the ONS palette

Cleanser CeraVe or Aveeno

Makeup remover KGD Spa water

Hair- Big Sexy

Shower Gel- Red Door

 

On the fence:

Dr. Perricone's Photo Plasma- jar packaging & price

HG Arch- It's a bit pricey & I'm still trying to get it right. Color may be a bit dark

Bumble & bumble Thickening set- Love what it does but has sulfates

TFSI & NARS eye primer-Like the Nars better than the TFSI but LORAC just works better for me

 

Would not repurchase:

ABH Catwalk palette- I foun d the colors weren't the best & quality wise it wasn't what I expected.

Benefit, They're Real- left my lashes hard.

Benefit That Gal & Porefressional-  lots of hype- no bang for me.

 

Want to try:

Alterna Hair care

Several brands of mascara

IT Cosmetics eye shadow palette.

 

 

Re: Empties

The It Cosmetics naturally pretty palette is worth every penny. Lovely colors with a great texture and pigment. They blend really nicely for mattes shadows.

Re: Empties

Nice empties post!

 

What turns you off about the Neutrogena Wipes? I've considered trying them (but haven't yet) because I hear people talk about them occasionally.

Re: Empties

image.jpgMore bathing...

out with the scented products in with better ingredients. 

Won't repurchase

Dr Teals Lavender salts

I Love Strawberries 

Village Naturals  Foaming Bath Oil & Body Wash

In with unscented salts, colloidal oatmeal.

I'll continue to repurchase Skin Below The Chin, I like the ingredients and my fiancé uses it too.

Re: Empties

I love Dr. Teal's Lavender Epsom salt soak! I used it yesterday to soften my feet!

Re: Empties

Very late here but here we go for November. upload_972744190273170808.jpg

Mouthwash x 2- Pictured because I'm super excited about finally finishing that gigantic monster bottle. Not picky about mouthwashes but I liked the ACT better.

VO5 shampoo/conditioner- Used both bottles in one sitting to wash the henna out of my hair when I dyed it. Would only purchase again if I need to redye my hair.

Vanilla buttercream sugar scrub- Would absolutely buy again if the store I bought it from didn't shut down. Smells heavenly.

Cover Girl Intense Shadow Blast- Would consider buying again. Pretty color but dried out very quickly.

Kiss My Face Pore Shrink Deep Cleansing Mask- No no no no no no no. I'm tossing this 95% full. I've given it multiple chances and something about this mask gives me a 3 day headache and makes me heave.

Biore deep cleansing pore strips- Loved the nose strips. The face ones were only okay.

Desert Essence eye serum- Still undecided on. I have another sample for December so we'll see.

Jergens oatmeal crema- Once I go through my stash of lotion, I may purchase.

Reviva Labs eye gelee- Nope. Still 99% full. Never absorbed but acted like glue and got tacky/balled up when I rubbed my eyes.

Ballet slipper soap- No idea where my mom bought it but it's cute. Smells good. Would consider.

Neutrogena visibly bright cleanser- Not a fan. Smells like grapefruit and has golden shimmer added in.

Nude oil- Nope. Too thick and hard to remove. I had to wash my face afterward to get this all off.

 

Looking back at that, it's all super negative. Hope I like more of my empties in December lol.

 

Re: Empties

Shimmer in a cleanser?...interesting!

Re: Empties

image.jpgI like getting and using fragrance samples so I'm always up for new ones am

nd repeats of ones I like. Cuteness factor of minis. I keep notes on fragrances I test. The Olay cloths ate my face, I couldn't use them 2 days in a row without stinging. Yes to blueberries is for when I'm very lazy and need to clean or refresh my face or hands, they do not remove makeup adequately but I don't think they are supposed to? I've stopped using them regularly but still handy to have around as a break from sanitizer/refreshing spray. Gentle and I like the smell. The Nivea was an old nostalgia purchase, but it's never really done anything for me. I like the smell. It's drying up, so I'm tossing. Won't repurchase.

As I come across things, I'm saving them in a little bag until I have at least 5, then take a pix and toss. 

Re: Empties

I do the same thing with Yes to Blueberries cleansing wipes. After a workout I will use as a quick refresher. I like the smell too!

Re: Empties

So far this month I have been making a dent in my fragrance samples.

 

image.jpg

  • Viktor &Rolf Flowerbomb card - it actually had enough "stuff" under the plastic to really put the scent on! It first smelled a little too sweet for me, but after some time it mellowed out.  Will need to try a bigger sample.
  • Estee Lauder Modern Muse - sorry to anyone who loves this but on me it smelled too mature.
  • Lancome La Vie est Belle - too sweet
  • Paco Rabanne Lady Million - at first I really liked this scent, but now I am on the fence.  I will need to try another sample
  • Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub - got this sample at Walgreens.  I really like this scrub.  I bought a full size already.  I use it twice a week in the shower.  My favorite part is that it gives me a warm tingly feeling on parts of my face, like some sort of treatment.
  • Philosophy Miracle worker - got this in an Allue magazine, I also got a deluxe sample from Sephora (still trying it), so the jury's still out on this one.
  • Make Up Forever Smoky Extravagant mascara - No! No! No! Hated the brush, too clumpy.  Did give volume but no length.
  • Almay Get Up and Grow - this had a weird brush as well.  The formula was on the drier side (which I like), so needless to say, it dried out.
  • L'Occiane - was a bit skeptical about this product, but it smelled good and was very hydrating.  Would possibly purchase.
  • Boyfriend parfume - too strong for me, though it was nice to have a scent last all day.

Re: Empties

I think one of the problems I had with the MUFE mascara sample is that the weird sample container thing let too much mascara out on the brush and so it all clumped up too much. Plus I wanted to use it a couple of times because there was a ton of product in it, but there was no way to close it and putting the wand back inside the container was so messy! Not well thought out!
