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.
I'm a little late to this month's empty party, but I'm happy with what I have been able to get through this July
fresh - Soy face cleansing milk
Bite Beauty - Cherry lip scrub mask
Urban Decay - Optical Illusion Complexion Primer
Secret - clinical strength invisible solid deodorant
Lush - Sultana
MAC - False lashes extreme black mascara
Coola - Classic sunscreen SPF 50 with white tea
Philosophy - time in a bottle serum
Harvey Prince - Ageless eau de parfum
Unwash - Bio-cleansing conditioner
DevaCurl - Buildup Buster Serum
Peter Thomas Roth - Pumpkin Enzyme Mask
Glamglow - Volcasmic moisturizer
Ole Henriksen - Pure truth youth activating oil
Sunday Riley - Tidal Brightening Enzyme water cream
Ren - Evercalm Global protection day cream
Drunk elephant - T.L.C. Frmboos Glycolic Night Serum
Peter Thomas Roth - sponge
Peter Thomas Roth - 24K Gold Cleansing butter
The Ordinary - High-spreadability fluid primer
Peter Thomas Roth - Pink bombshell lip balm
@KellW What do you think about the Ordinary? I want to try some of their stuff because of the prices but honestly I'm so overwhelmed with their products. I just bought their serum foundation and so far I like it.
@katkapivarci I'm not in love with either of their primers that I tried but I really like the argan oil (and for $8 it's even better), so I think there products are just hit or miss for me. I'm also interested in the new foundations, but thankfully I have time before I will feel like I need to pull the trigger on that particular purchase. Like @Mochapj said try looking at the Deciem brand thread to see how other people enjoy products. Hopefully there you will be able to find people who have similar concerns/skin to you.
June and July empties
The bubble mask was nice but I didn't realize until I opened it that it would only cover half my face,I would have liked it if it was a full mask.
I tried this mascara since a lot of people seem to like it but it just wasn't for me,I found it clumpy and didn't like the formula.
I use a mix of Japanese brands too
Jo Malone Wild Bluebell - on my 3rd bottle now
ABH in Ebony
Heroine Make Black Eyeliner - too many repurchases to keep track
Bite Beauty Sweet Cream
Dolly Wink Volume Mascara - also too many repurchases to keep track
UD E/S Suspect (I hope it's not discontinued... Shoppers and Sephora don't have it in their display, but at least the Sephora website has it) - on my 3rd one
Orbis SPF - on my 4th one
MUFE HD Concealer
Isn't it so satisfying to finish up a product?!
I can never save empties so can't post a photo...I'm too OCD to have packaging kicking around, but here are my recent empties:
CeraVe Moisturizing Cream - My go-to body lotion, already opened another tub. Do wish this came in a pump format and not a tub though.
Herbivore Blue Tansy Mask - FINALLY finished this jar of mask which has lasted me exactly 1 year. Second jar already open!
LORAC mini eyeshadow primer - this came with one of the LORAC palettes, and I've still got 3 more tubes. 1 mini tube lasted me about a year (though I don't wear shadows daily). Really like this, I do experience some creasing with certain shadows but nothing a quick pat down can't fix.
Smashbox Hydrating Under Eye Primer mini - love this stuff, looking forward to opening my full sized tube. I use this to prep under eye area for concealer. Makes me feel less bad about being too lazy to use eye cream. The mini from a 250 pt perk has lasted me over a year I think!
I can't save my empties either - I live in such a small space that it drives me nuts! That's why I keep a little note on my computer with what I've finished. It makes me feel oddly accomplished.
July empties - it was a busy month! If you have any questions, please ask!
The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% - repurchased
Odacite Jo+L - repurchased
Youth to the People Cleanser + Cream set - will likely repurchase
Kate Somerville Exfolikate Acne - love but has been D/C
Farmacy Eye Dew - repurchased
DDG Ferulic Acid + Retinol - love and will likely repurchase
Dermadoctor Intensive Vitamin C Peel Pad - will purchase once I've used some acids up
Bliss Soapy Suds Vanilla Bergamot
Plus a few travel empties not pictured:
Clinique TTDO Balm
FAB Facial Radiance Pads
REN Glycol Lactic Radiance Mask
May Lindstrom Jasmine Garden
DeMamiel Summer oil
Josh Rosebrook Cacao Antioxidant Mask - smelled gross, hard to spread, didn't do much for my skin
Briogeo Scalp Revival
Uma Deeply Clarifying - works fine but would not repurchase. It's extremely overpriced for what it is ($173CDN) and at that pricepoint I expect a light-safe bottle.
May Lindstrom Honey Mud - I don't like the film this leaves
Briogeo Don't Despair Repair Mask
Odacite A Winter in Paris - also works fine, but I prefer Summer in Hossegor
Odacite An Autumn on the World - also works fine, but I prefer Summer in Hossegor
Rahua Treatment Mask
Body Shop Chocolicious Body Butter
COR Silver Soap - gimmick
Farmacy Lip Bloom Ginger - tasted bad
Marc Jacobs Coconut Primer - did not prevent oily lid creases

@katkapivarciI think they make some good products and some meh products. I've posted mini reviews of all the ones I've tried over here - https://community.sephora.com/t5/Brand-Loyal/THE-DECIEM-THREAD/m-p/2729996
As for this particular product - it did work well and I have repurchased although it has a weird foamy texture.
Sephora Avocado Hand Mask
Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Waterproof Mascara
Lush Fairly Traded Honey Shampoo- I wish this smelled like honey, instead it's floral. It was ok I just prefer other shampoos.
Josie Maran Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm-this was good for my dry skin, but it didn't mix well with my Kate Somerville Goat Milk Moisturizer so I could only use it sometimes.
Sol Janeiro Acai Body Cream- this has a really clean scent and if you look really close, there's little shimmers. It's not the most moisturizing but I would consider buying it.
Cake Milk Made Handcream- Smells good but is a bit greasy.
Korres Rose Body Butter - didn't like the scent
Grande Lips Plumper-This wasn't terrible I just have no use for it. On the product page it says to use it twice a day for 30 days for results. I did this and can tell you day 30 is no different than day 2. In other words, it works when it's on your lips and that's it. If you put in on before bed you won't wake up to plumper lips.
