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 love that Clinique makeup remover. It's my all time favorite.

Re: Empties

This is my favorite eye and lip make-up remover, I made sure to get the full size once this travel size ran out! Easy removal, no eye stinging and it doesn't taste terrible. Smiley Happy

Re: Empties

I used up so many things in February that not everything would fit in one photo. Many loves this month and lots of empties overall so I would say February was a success Smiley Happy Let me know if you want details on anything.

Re: Empties

Great empties! What did you think of the Farmacy brightening mask and how is its texture/feel compared to other hydrogel masks? I've had my eye on those for a while now.

Re: Empties

I received a 3-pack compliments of Farmacy a few months ago and really like them. I only have 1 mask left. They are absolutely soaked in product which is great. The only downside in my opinion is that the hole for your lips isn't big enough.

 

I haven't tried any other hydrogel masks so I can't compare.

Re: Empties

Ive always loved checking out what everyone else uses up and decided to try collecting empties to motivate myself to use items I already have instead of buying more all the time.  I dream of being someone who only has one of an item going at a time that she loves, alas I love new things!  I thought I had hardly used anything in January so kept going into February, so this is two months worth of empties. 

 

Will or have re purchased

 

Good but not amazing, I will re buy the philosophy and shampoo/conditioner but in different scents I'm sure

 

Not for me

 

 

Re: Empties

Are those OH and JM oils from the 2014 holiday mini oil kit? I ask because I am slowly using mine up as well. I think I bought the kit in early 2015 on sale, didn't touch them at all for a year, and have just recently opened the kit. In other news, I am very dumb and shouldn't be trusted with money.

Re: Empties

The OH is from a different kit, but the JM as well as the Clairins and L'Ocitanne are from that kit.  I'm always a sucker for the Sephora kits but they tend to sit around before I get to using everything.  I still have two of the OH oils that I haven't touched from other value sets!  

Re: Empties

Feb empties. I didn't love anything and as you can see I'm trying to get through my redic BBW semi annual sale stuff.

Didnt like any of these items. 

 

Re: Empties

Super impressed by your candle empties!  I want mine to look like that!

Re: Empties

Wow.  That is some serious candle usage!

Re: Empties

Small empties post. 

 

I love all of these products and will repurchase again. The Mystic Diving argan oil (can be found at Sally's) was especially critical in helping my dry, processed, hair ends feel alive again!

Re: Empties

I love their cupcake mask!

Re: Empties

I don't have oily skin so it sounds like that cupcake mask is not for me but it sounds amazing!

Re: Empties

So many empties. Huzzah! Too many to label; may do that later.

 

Loves: have or would repurchase

 

 

Meh: Just ok

 

 

 

Nope:

 

Re: Empties

So many empties!  I really like that Caudalie lip balm and the Bliss blood orange body butter.  I'm working my way through that Phyto hair cream right now.  Not really sure how I feel about that one.  

Re: Empties

Great empties!  I haven't posted any since December and finally want to clear them out this weekend since I need to clean anyway.  I have a feeling I will also have too many to label except for maybe a few notable mentions.  Which is a shame because I like having the record for myself since I try so many things I can forget what I liked and didn't like.

Re: Empties

Great month of cleaning house. I had some of that shea butter from the Body Shop in my cart, but the sale ended. Love it. Want some more.

Re: Empties

Looks like you used up a bunch.  Congrats!  I also like how you organized them.

Re: Empties

What are your thoughts on Rose Jam and Ocean Salt?

 

Also, is that a sigma F80 brush you're tossing?!

Re: Empties

I use Ocean Salt in the same way and I'm obsessed.  I haven't bought any in awhile because I've been trying to use other scrubs in my stash but the scent and feel are amazing!

Re: Empties

my F80 died the same way a couple months ago...sweet dreams dear brushes!

Re: Empties

March was pretty successful for me. Especially in the makeup department. I'm exhausted from a crazy day at work and won't go into too much detail but if you have any questions on the products feel free to ask. There might be some snark. 

 

 

Moar of this:

Deva Curl Styling Crème

Skinceuticals CE Ferulic Serum: HG for years. It’s a strong Vit C serum but doesn’t irritate my skin. I’m giving the DE C-Firma serum a try and it’s a good dupe for it.

Swisspers Cotton Rounds

Listerine UltraClean Mouthwash

 

Meh, I’ll give it another try if nothing better comes along:

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

Cerave Hydrating Cleanser

Jan Marini Peptide Extreme Serum

Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream

Murad Oil Control Mattifier

Nailtiques Formula 2 Protein

 

Nooooooo, just no:

Dr. Denese HydroShield Eye Serum

Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Cream

Giovanni  Soft Hold Styling Gel

 

 

Moar of this:

Elizabeth & James Nirvana Black

Urban Decay Eye Primer Potion

Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyebrow Gel

 

 

Meh, I’ll give it another try if nothing better comes along:

Burberry Body

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer Honey & Custard: a combo of the wrong colors for my skintone and improper technique. I didn’t understand the hype and a part of me still doesn’t. I did have much better luck with this once I used the Sephora Collection concealer brush.  I’m sick of this concealer atm but maybe down the road I’ll give it another try.

  

Nooooooo, just no:

Benefit Posie Cheek & Lip Stain

Benefit ChaCha Cheek & Stain

Lorac Behind the Scenes Eye Primer

Buxom Buxom Lash Mascara

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Fresh & Hydrating Cream Compact: Horrendous. I've got combo skin with average size pores in my t-zone. This looks beautiful the first 5 minutes and the color matched perfectly. After that it turned into an orange oxidized mess that made my pores look like craters. I couldn't wear it on my own and had to mix it with a matte foundation to use up.

Wet n Wild Icon Eyeshadows in Comfort Zone & Petal Pusher: These are good shadows but I think they just expired or something went off. I tried wearing them but my eyes did not agree. At $2.45, it'll be a toss.

 

Loooooook, I wiped it cleaaaaan:

 

Re: Empties

My son is impressed with that CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser to the point that he will not let me buy anything else, and our Target is always OOS. It does leave my skin softer, but I miss the clean feeling when I use it. I moisturize after each shower anyway, so I'd rather stick to cleansing soap.

 

I will try the SkinCeuticals some day.
