Re: Empties - 2019

Nice empties @itsfi !!! I didn't like the smell of the Coco Cabana Cream in the jar or on my skin. In the jar it smelled too sweet, and when I put it on, it smelled like buttered popcorn. Hard pass for me! I will stick to the beloved Bum Bum Cream!

Re: Empties - 2019

😖. You’re not selling it.  I hate the smell of artificial buttered popcorn.  The  jelly bellies make me gag!  I hope it’s not like that!  @sephoraaddict918 

Re: Empties - 2019

Agreed! The Bum Bum Cream reigns supreme @sephoraaddict918! 👍🏼

Re: Empties - 2019

Yay, be gone Blood Orange Sugar @itsfi 😂

Re: Empties - 2019

Shop my stash is really helping me get through my things @eshoe and this lip scrub is one of the ones I’m most happy to get through. 😃

RE: Re: Empties - 2019

@itsfi Ooooo I love Eminence. I will have to check out that moisturizer.

RE: Re: Empties - 2019

@itsfi I loved the Stone Crop Hydrating Mist the most. It’s like a spray on essence. I also liked the Stone Crop Serum. They seem to have a lot more masks than when I was a heavy-user of Eminence about five years ago. I moved away from my “dealer.” I would LOVE to try the masks. I remember thinking the exfoliating scrubs were too harsh for my sensitive skin. My favorite moisturizer has been discontinued, but I think I also liked the Naseberry treatment cream, as far as being a good moisturizer that did not aggravate my rosacea.

Re: RE: Re: Empties - 2019

@christyrc, do you have any favorite Eminence products? I’ve just started looking into / using them more. I’ve tried a couple of things here and there but the last few products I’ve tried have really impressed me.

Re: Empties - 2019

@itsfiI'm struggling with the same thing with the SDJ Cococabana!  I enjoy the scent in the container, but when I rub it in I'm not a fan.  I tried it again just the other day and it was the same thing.... but like you after an hour or two I smell my skin again and it smells okay, though nothing like it does straight from the pot.  I'm working on finishing up a full size lotion before I give this a really good go, but I'm not as excited to try it with the scent issues.  And I also LOVE the bumbum cream scent!

Re: Empties - 2019

@missjeanie, try mixing the Coco Cabana with another product, like the lotion you are trying to finish up. OR, what I also did was apply it at night, right before I went to bed - I’d be asleep by the time the scent changed on me. 😃👍🏼

Re: Empties - 2019

Maybe I'll give night time a go... I shower at night a lot so it's a good time for me to apply lotion.  I'll try it out on its own for a bit before mixing, I really, really want to love this one....

@itsfi at first I really did like the Coco Cabana but the third time I went to use it, it made my stomach churn lol just too sweet of a scent mixed with butter...ewwwwww

@lmaster, it's funny how the cream turns a different scent - though neither the plasticky scent I had the pleasure of experiencing or the overly sweet and buttery scent you had sound appealing. It really does depend on a person's body chemistry. I thought of just tossing it, but ended up mixing it with some other lotions and oils.

Excellent idea @itsfi 😆

Re: Empties - 2019

Ouhhh!  Good month!!!  It looks like you cleared out a decent number of deluxe samples! 🙌🏻 @MoniDJ 

Re: Empties - 2019

@MoniDJGreat empties!  You've gotten through so many!  What do you use the witch hazel for?  I've seen them sold, but never knew what people used it as?  Toner? Same question with the Dr. Bronners soap... I've just purchased a pack to try out but have no idea where to start!

RE: Re: Empties - 2019

I use the witch hazel as a toner. I like it because it’s gentle and doesn’t dry my skin out. The Dr. Bronner’s soap is my makeup brush cleaner (I alternate between it and Beauty Blender solid cleanser). It gives my brushes a very good deep cleanse, especially those that tend to get stained from foundation and concealer.

Re: RE: Re: Empties - 2019

Thanks so much for the reply @MoniDJ !  I'm overstocked on toner at the moment but I'll have to give that a try sometime!

Re: RE: Re: Empties - 2019
