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

Ha, I have chocolate radar!!!   All I'm looking at is that yummy looking chocolate tart with what looks like a rum ball inside.  Annnnd this is why I'm not losing the baby weight.  @dziggi

Re: Empties

@heartsmyface Hehehe, so when I got that candle I was like "ohhh chocolate yes" then saw it was a candle. Disappointed. 

Re: Empties

July and August together. Looks like I did pretty good job - 88 pieces Smiley Happy

Loves, tried for the first time. Bioderma and Bio-essence mask are fantastic.

My first time keeping track of empties! I'm excited to be able to look back and see what I have used in the past. No makeup this time, but I should have some good products to show for next time. Here are my empties for August 2017:

I didn't finish up too much this month

Spoiler
Josie Maran Daily Moisturizer SPF 47- This is good for the summer but I need more moisture for winter I think.
Nars All Day Luminous Powder Foundation Siberia- This has light coverage, Which is what I like and didn't make my skin look dry.

Likes

Spoiler
Too Cool For School- I need to use this more but so far so good. This past week the area around my mouth was especially dry and it was taken care of overnight with this.
Marc Jacobs Oh, Lola!- My one gripe with this is the staying power.
Cake Heavy Cream- I've come to realize that I really prefer this as a foot cream.

Nope

Spoiler
Too Faced BTS Waterproof- After a few hours it starts to flake. It looks super pretty but I need something to last at least 12 hours.

Re: Empties

I really want to try that coconut mask!  I love their body scrub and body oil!  @suzyo

Re: Empties

@heartsmyface I'm working my way through a tube of that scrub right now! I like it but I don't think I love it. I wanna try that oil body wash. I think I might buy it during the November sale.

Re: Empties

Hmmm, maybe dont use it all up before you get the chance to use them together.  I like the combined effect.  

There are much better scrubs out there.  If you're looking for something super awesome (like a full body peel) try the Dermadoctor KP duty body Scrub!  You're only supposed to use it once a week but it is my all time favorite!  It's a combo chemical and physical exfoliator!  You dry scrub it on and rinse it off right away @suzyo.

It's on my Holy Expletive this Expletive is amazing list!  

Re: Empties

My August empties. There are not as many foils this month but more deluxe samples and full size.

 

 

IMG_3637.JPG

 

Loves:

Bioderma micellar water- a staple in my cleansing routine

Biologique Recherche elestane marine- has significantly reduced my fine lines.

Tom Ford lip balms in L'Oddissea and Fathom-super moisturizing with a hint of colour. As you can see I loved them so much that I scraped out everything😅

Hourglass Ambient lighting powder travel size in Mood light- I wanted to try out a differrent colour as my usual standby is Diffused light

The Chemistry hand cream- moisturizes and is fast absorbing without being greasy.

 

 

Likes:

Amore Pacific cream cleanser- a good cleanser that left my skin clean without being overly dry

Caudalie Reservatrol cream- a light day time moisturizer that is fast absorbing

Avene eye cream-  a light weight moisturizer but I didn't see any improvements with wrinkle reduction

 

Not for me:

Dr Brandt microdermabrasion- it felt too rough on my skin and left it dry and itchy

Nude brightening fizzy powder- very granular and left my skin super dry. I guess physical exfoliants are not for me😂

RE: Empties

August empties!! Top: Loves: Dior is my hg mascara. The covergirl lashblast luxe has a pretty shimmer to it for nights out, and I like the full silicone bristle brush. Mary Kay eye makeup remover did a good job removing stubborn waterproof makeup. Laguna is good for contouring and doesn't pull muddy or orange on my fair skin. Mom Guerlain was a lovely but not overpowering sensual floral but not overpowering for work. The hask Greek yogurt hair mask smelled amazing and left my hair so soft. The agave oil also left my hair feeling very soft. The sally Hansen quick dry top coat does make nails dry very fast, but I wish itprevented chips better. Still would rebuy. The Sephora nail polish was a pretty coral red that got a ton of compliments but isn't made anymore since it was from the opi collection. And the purple nail polish was some no name brand but it was nice for fall. Bottom: wouldn't rebuy: tonymoly aloe mask didn't do much to moisturize my skin. I liked the gel texture of the leaders balance mask but it didn't help my acne or oily skin or redness. Hoola was too oily for my oily skin and emphasizes pores while separating. Klorane pomegranate conditioner smelled good but did not extend the life of my highlights. Neither did the L'Oréal creme conditioner, although it left hair very soft. Duwop lash venom didn't impress me. Sunday Riley didn't seem to do anything for my skin either. The clarifying wipes from formula 10 were dry and didn't remove makeup great nor did they clarify my acne. Dphue color gloss did not impart color or gloss, even when using overnight.

Re: Empties

IMG_0880.JPG

Lots of empties this month. I'm so proud of myselfSmiley Happy

The bad: Claudalie and Fresh lip balm. Cladalie should change the package for that one. The product is not bad but the spray is horrible. Same thing with Fresh. I don't want the lip balm to stuck under my nails and the smear it over my lips. Nope!

The Ugly: I hate that Tom Ford primer with passion lol. Tatcha mask and Fresh mask are just messy. 

The Good: everything else is either love or like. Need to mention: I finished the Fresh soft cream and fill it up with 2 card samples I got and then finished it again. Smiley Wink

Not in the picture: I finished around 25-30 shampoo-conditioner foiled sets. Yoo-hoo!

what did you think of the glam glow mask and the two tatcha products?

Re: what did you think of the glam glow mask and the two tatc...

Sorry @BeautybyJules I didn’t see your post until now. I like that GlamGlow brightening mask but I think their best product is super mud mask (the white bottle). I just finished a giant tube (will post pictures of my empty soon). Tatcha is hits and misses for me. I like the water cream but dislike the mask (the purple bottle). I’m doing good with skincares but not soo good in makeup department 😂 I hoard so much that I doubt I would finish anything 

Re: what did you think of the glam glow mask and the two tatc...

It's totally fine! Since following these posts I've been trying to start my own empties pile. I've been storing them in an empty play box until I feel like I have enough. So far ive tried the gravity mud and the super clearing mud from glam glow and now Im addicted to peeling masks. I haven't tried anything from tatcha yet because of the price. I'll have to keep my eye out for a good value set or small point reward to try the water cream at least

that is dedication! I'm a goo hoarder. even if I hate it...

that is dedication! I'm a goo hoarder. even if I hate it I can't make myself throw it out. I end up making myself use it all up which takes forever! I hope to someday get to the bottom of that many containers. excellent job
