Re: Empties - 2019

@eshoe  wow I can’t believe you remembered to hang on to all these!! I always say I’ll post on this thread but I forget to save!

Re: Empties - 2019

The sample bags from Sephora are perfect for holding on to empties under the sink @ather. I used to keep them separated by foils/DS/FS/masks but now it's just one bag for masks and one for everything else. 

Re: Empties - 2019

Oh awesome! @eshoe so glad you liked it!

RE: Re: Empties - 2019

I love the Brazilian Bum Bum Creams, I get compliments all the time when I wear that one!

And the shower gel, and the body buff, and the lip balm @cindyvonlovely πŸ˜„

@cindyvonlovely Love reading your thoughts on your empties!



Re: RE: Empties - 2019

I love your photos @cindyvonlovely!


You have a good variety of likes and dislikes! This was a great set of empties! 


Best Wishes,




Re: RE: Empties - 2019

Great pictures!! @cindyvonlovely 

Re: RE: Empties - 2019

The Watermelon Lemonade pocketbac sounds great @cindyvonlovely

RE: Re: RE: Empties - 2019

It was, it smelled exactly like the watermelon Jolly Ranchers!

Re: RE: Empties - 2019

Funny, I've got a Gucci Guilty sample I'm using as we speak.  It smells like wealth.  I'd like to be wealthy. There appears to be a correlation, or maybe it's a leap.  I might just buy it. @cindyvonlovely 


RE: Re: RE: Empties - 2019

It may work really good with your body chemistry, but on me it was like AXE body spray with extra steps. Gucci has other perfumes that are good, like the Bloom one.

Re: RE: Re: RE: Empties - 2019

Yeah, best not smell like AXE. @cindyvonlovely 

great stash of empties! @cindyvonlovely

Posting an overflowing empties bag. This is several months worth of trash. 


IMG_20190604_161846.jpgThe Winners

All of these have already been repurchased or will be in the future: Sephora Collection Banana Lip Balm, Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Oil Shampoo, Lancome Monsier Big mascara, Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil, Coola Rosilliance BB Cream, ColorScience Face Shield sunscreen, Laneige Water Sleeping Mask, Shiseido cotton squares, Beautyblender liquid cleanser, Belif Moisturizing Bomb, Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet Cream


IMG_20190604_162109.jpgThe Ehhhhhhs


All of these were ok, just not great and don't merit a re-(or full) purchase: Sulwhasoo oil cleanser, Estee Lauder Advanced Night Serum, Tata Harper Resurfacing Serum, Korres Wild Rose Sleep Facial, Ole Henriksen Forces of Nature Hand Cream, Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Oil, Philosophy Ultimate Miracle Worker day cream, Kate Somerville Oil-Free Moisturizer, Ahava Deadsea Hand Cream, Becca Velvet Blurring Primer, AmorePacific Moisture Bound Hydra-Gel, Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum, L'Occitane Ulta Rich Body Cream, Too Faced Hangover Primer, Dermalogica Ultracalming Barrer Repair, Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream, Strivectin Deep Repair Hair Mask, Sachajuan moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, Strivectin Max Volume shampoo and Conditioner


IMG_20190604_161701.jpgThe Oh-Nos

These were just terrible for me a variety of reasons: The Sephora Collection Rose Hair Sleeping Mask for its awful scent, Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme because makeup shouldn't hurt, Shiseido Wetforce sunscreen just didn't work for my skin at all, Drunk Elephant Umbra Tinte Sunscreen was the wrong tint for me, Ole Henriksen Counter Balance Hydrator for its horrific smell, and Farmacy Clean Bee cleanser for its unpleasant scent and never feeling like it washed off easily. 

Re: Empties - 2019

@quspork  did the DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Tinteβ„’ Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30

give you any rash? The regular one was good but the tinted gives me a rash πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

Re: Empties - 2019

Yikes! Fortunately, I escaped the rash, @ather. Sorry it didn't work for you either. 

Re: Empties - 2019

I loved looking at your "winners" list, @quspork, because so many of those are favorites of mine as well!  Curious about your thoughts on the TATA HARPER - Resurfacing AHA + BHA Serumthough, since I've never used it and I've been curuious about it--what didn't you like about it?

Re: Empties - 2019

I just didn't see any sort of difference in my skin with it, @CookieGirl1. And for that price tag, I would need to see some sort of results by the end of the bottle! 

Re: Empties - 2019

Thanks, @quspork.  You're right, Tata Harper does have a pretty price tag to go with it.
