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.
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.
@heartsmyface I never had this issue with the Diorshow - I actually really like it, that’s why I wanted to try this one. I was really disappointed. It clumped all my lashes together - last time I used I had to remove my whole eye makeup - I decided to toss it after that.
@CC3616 It smelled like bad hair spray and alcohol, I don’t know if I had a dud or it was old or it’s just how it smells but that’s why I didn’t finish it - couldn’t stand the smell☹️
My first empties posts. Here are my December empties -
IT Cosmetics Anti-Aging Armour SPF 50+ - This is my new favorite sunblock. It’s a tinted physical sunblock and the color blends in very nicely with my skin tone. On my very best skin days, I can just wear this, some mascara and a lippie of some sort and be on my way. Works well with concealer, foundation and powder as well.
Laneige Water Sleeping Mask – I have a couple of other sleeping masks I am trying but this one will always have a spot in my skincare cabinet. While its gel consistency makes it light and easy to layer over other skincare products, it is very effective and leaves skin feeling soft and hydrating and looking fresh in the morning. A must have year-round, but definitely in the winter months.
Heimish All Clean Balm – you may be seeing more of these in empties posts. I received several travel / trial sizes of these with a purchase. Love the balm – it’s unscented, great as an oil-based cleanser and doesn’t leave any residue behind.
CosRx Acne Pimple Master Patch – this is a life saver for those periodic breakouts. I keep backups at home at all times. Several other similar products out there, but this is one of the ones I always come back to.
Blithe Patting Water Pack Soothing & Healing Green Tea – This exfoliant-toner-and-essence in one cuts down my skincare routine and leaves my skin exfoliated, soft, smooth, and primed for moisturizer. I received my first bottle as a gift and have since given several as gifts to friends and family and have repurchased the Green Tea one as well as picked up the other two “flavors” in the line.
Clinique Take the Day Off Balm – for years, this Clinique Balm was my HG first cleanser. Still a favorite, but I’ve been trying out some Korean cleansing balms and oils and have been impressed with how they’ve worked on my skin. This is a tried and true oil-based cleanser and I see myself always having it in my collection, even if I do not reach for it every night like I previously did.
First Aid Beauty Radiance Pads – These are gentle enough for me to use every day and the ones I go back to when I’ve slipped or neglected my skincare regimen and need to jump-start my routine back up.
Kerastase Oleo-Relax – Have recently been paying more attention to my hair care and initially reached for it again just to finish it but I’ve since become fond of this serum – and, not gonna lie, it’s nice to hear the compliments I get when I use it.
Bioderma Micellar Water – I “triple cleanse” at night, starting first with a micellar water and this has been a HG for so long. LOVE this.
Leave or Loathe
I also have the deluxe sample and it's a very gentle cleanser. It's definitely not going to wash off any makeup. I use this after my jojoba oil that I use to melt all the make up and I like it as I have sensitive dehydrated skin. So this works for me. But I can see why some may not like it as it's not very strong.
