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.
End of 2017 empties
Vintners Daughter Active Botanical Serum - I loved the glow from this the first time I had a bottle but it gives my husband a rash when I use it. I haven't found anything that compares to it during the intervening years, so I purchased another bottle this year and I only use it while he's traveling
Odacite Summer In Hossegor - a regular repurchase, I go through probably 2 bottles a year. It keeps my hyperpigmentation in check and helps with brightness
Odacite Jo+L - more regular repurchases, these are part of my anti-breakout skincare
Odacite Bl+C - more regular repurchases, these are part of my anti-breakout skincare
Clarisonic Pedi Boost - I don't buy it on its own, but it came with my Pedi when I repurchased it and I do enjoy how well it exfoliates my feet when I use it
Noble Isle Willow Song - an absolutely dreamy smelling bath/shower gel
Verb Volume Shampoo + Conditioner - smells lovely, makes my hair look fluffy and voluminous
Roger & Gallet Fig Hand Cream - a really nourishing hand cream with a pretty (but strong) scent
Clarisonic Pedi Disc - regular repurchase, I <3 my Pedi
Stellar Haze Powder x3 - I use the Haze powder to keep my t-zone under control and I love the finish and fact that it has no white cast
RL Linden & Co A Thousand Petals - a beautiful and nourishing facial mist; I was devastated to hear RL went out of business late last year because this smells like my childhood
Fenty Pro Filtr 290 - I went back and forth on whether I liked this foundation and whether or not this was my shade and I'm still undecided on both
Odacite Gt+L - received as GWP, not something I ever repurchase but will use if I get it
Odacite Gr+G - received as GWP, not something I ever repurchase but will use if I get it
Sunday Riley Good Genes - I loved this years ago but I took it on a recent trip and wasn't wowed by it anymore
Tony Moly Coconut Sheet Mask - just ok. I find TM sheet masks too loose and drippy
Farmacy Sleep Tight Balm x2 - wouldn't use it on my face but I love using it on my heels at night to keep them moisturized
Givenchy Noir Révélateur Mascara - the bending wand is really gimmicky and I loved the effect of the mascara when I could apply it without smearing on the side of my face but it dried out so quickly that I don't think I'd ever repurchase it again
Mahalo Vitality Elixir - the size wasn't enough for me to form much of an opinion but I wasn't crazy about how it absorbed - I always felt like it left a film on my face
Odacite Aloe + Imortelle Mist - have used before and I don't get the hype but will use it up when I get it as a GWP
Biossance Rose + Squalane Oil - wasn't my favourite either as I prefer straight squalane
Noble Isle Summer Harvest - good bubbles but a bit too musky and manly for my taste
Too Faced Hangover RX Mist - the spritzer on the mini felt like someone was spitting on me every time I used it
UD Troublemaker Mascara - bristles were too stiff and large

Re: RE: Empties
@Mochapj, @MachynesSister, good to know about the Too Faced Hangover Rx spray. I really like the primer and was thinking about getting the setting spray. I will start off with the mini version to make sure I like the formula and if so, I'll do as you recommended @MachynesSister and transfer to another spray bottle.

Ooooh, look at all those sheet masks! Fun, @MoniDJ! I do like the Peach Slices Brighten sheet mask and have the Elisha Coy Brightening mask that I have yet to try. May have to add the Revitalizing one to my list.
@myinsidevoice It’s not going to be too difficult cause I sheet mask almost all the time as it is. I’m just making it a thing so I am forced to give myself a little me time everyday.
@heartsmyface, I completely understand. It's important to have 'me' time and to carve out the time and space for it. When I started into a K-beauty routine, I put myself on a sheet-mask-per-day-for-30-days. My skin never looked better, which I loved, but I also realized how very little time I gave to myself to do something other than what is necessary (i.e., shower, make a meal, etc.)
I'm all for "me" time and I will cheer you on from the sidelines as you hit 365 days of sheet masking! I may even join you for a month here and there.
I've been saving my empties for 3 or 4 months.. some are old enough that I can't remember exactly how I felt about them anymore, so I stuck them in the likes pic because I don't recall hating them lol. I need to do this more often so I can keep up a little better.
I was also a bit spotty on remembering to keep foils and some other items; this is probably 70-80% of what I actually finished off. Oops
36 empties to round out the year with lots of FS which I was super happy about!
Magic Foot peeling shoes- Okay. Love hate. I LOVED how soft my feet were. I really hated the peeling process and that my feet were shedding for 3-4 days. I had to wear socks at all times to keep my foot shed off my dark wood floors, out of my bed, and off my yoga mat (I was the weirdo in socks at yoga.. yep LOL). But, the results were amazing.
PTR unwrinkle night- consistent favorite here. My skin always wakes up soft and refreshed when I use this, even when I use it at work overnight where it's dry and I don't always get a good nights sleep.
Omorovizca thermal cleansing balm- Since I have dry skin I love balms and this one cleans and softens, well worth the splurge.
DDG AB peels: easy way to put acids into my routine when things are busy. Not the best value but convenience is key here.
tarte highlighter (empty half pan)- from park ave princess palette. would repurchase if i didn't have lots more to work through!
Smashbox soft lights blush- RIP my HG everyday natural blush. I had two of these beauts that both were finished up in 2017. I'd buy 20 more if they still sold them! But no worries, no blush shortage here..
PTR 24K gold mask- I love how my skin looks and feels after using these but am cutting back using due to price and other similar products with better value.
Korres body butter and wash- I always enjoy using korres and will pick it up if I see it on sale (tjx/marshalls).
This works pillow spray- I do enjoy it but cost is a barrier..
Essie foot scrub- worked well in conjunction with my clarisonic foot attachment but not sure that a dedicated foot product is needed when I have body scrub I can use in my rotation.
H20 cleanser- I didn't mind how my face felt after using it and it wasn't too stripping, but way too heavily fragranced. I only used it once, it was too strong for me.
marcelle mascara- was clumpy on me
birchbox eyelash curler- the top piece is too thick for me to use it.
So funny that you should mention that @heartsmyface! I have a pack of the original Babyfoot ones and plan on using them either this weekend or the next. I'll let you know how it goes.
