Empties - 2019

May and June empties! The mason jar was a homemade body scrub that was gifted to me. Still trying to get through my minis and work through my mask collection. I also did a collection edit/declutter. Decluttered items are in the bottom right. Old skincare and spfs, mini mascaras that transferred on me, and some lippies/liquid shadows that went bad. Bye! Not pictured but I also gifted away some makeup (approximately 20 full and DS items) and skincare minis to a local makeup artist and what I had left of my briogeo green apple shampoo/ conditioner and the indie Lee eye serum to my mom because she wanted to try them.

Niiice @Lazybeautybeast! I’m always so impressed and inspired by your empties! 😃 Lots of great products here! 👌🏼

Thanks @itsfi! 😊 I'm always surprised by how many emptie...

Thanks @itsfi! 😊 I'm always surprised by how many empties I have each month.

Re: Empties - 2019

Loves:
GRANDE COSMETICS - GrandeLASH™ - MD Lash Enhancing Serum is amazing! I love this stuff and have repurchased several times, in different sizes, for myself and to gift. I haven't been using it regularly this year but that'll change starting tomorrow. I picked up a mini tube of it and am planning on applying it every night for the entire month of July. 
BELIF - Aqua Bomb Jelly Cleanser - I have a full size of this jelly cleanser; it's great for a second cleanse - cleans skin without stripping it or making it feel dry or tight.
MAC Viva Glam V lipstick - love this lippie color; it's a staple in my makeup collection. I've gone through and repurchased this one more times than I can count.
OUAI - Rose Hair & Body Oilis a nicely scented oil that works really well as a detangler, softener and moisturizer.

Like:
Ausomme Rehydrating Double Mist - this saved my skin this winter, during the winter-spring transition, and through many flights and time spent in heavily air-conditioned conference and meeting rooms. 

Maybes (Good but not standout):
NARS - Lipstick - Orgasm- not bad; a good color for the warmer months, but I just prefer the gloss version.
PETER THOMAS ROTH - Hungarian Thermal Water Mineral-Rich Atomic Heat Mask - results are nice, but it's too tedious a process to get the product to heat up as advertised. I would use it if I had it or were given it, but I'm not sure I'd go out of my way to purchase a full size.

Okay / Meh:
Sephora Collection Rose Sleeping Mask is great for traveling, does a decent job of sealing in moisture; can double as a moisturizer as well as an overnight mask.
RAHUA - Omega 9 Hair Maskhas grown on me but doesn't rise to the level of a favorite. It does a pretty good job of detangling my hair and leaving it soft.


NO:
Except for products that caused me to break out or otherwise irritate my skin, I've not tossed anything before finishing it this year, or even last year. That is, until the W7 Lemon Meringe Anti Redness Eyelid Primer. This was too yellow, too thick, too pasty, too .... too much of a bad fit for my eyelids (or for anything I could repurpose it for). I hoped this might be a dupe for discontinued Benefit Lemon Aid Color Correcting Eyelid Primer. It is not. Smiley Sad

All in all, for the first half of the year, I went through 106 items (full and deluxe sizes and foils, non-sheet masks) - 38 full size products, 35 deluxe samples and 33 foil samples. The 106 empties consisted of 69 skincare items; 9 body care products; 16 hair care items; 5 makeup products; 3 fragrances and 4 that fit in the other category which was probably home goods of some sort (i.e., diffusers, etc.). Not surprisingly the bulk of the products I went through were skincare items, making up 65% of my total empties.

Re: Empties - 2019

I’m so impressed @itsfi. Can’t wait to see your empties for the 2nd half of the year.

Re: Empties - 2019

Thanks @ShortErica! I had soooo many open, half used products at the beginning of the year it was ridiculous, as clearly shown by so many full size products I went through. It'll be interesting to see how many products, and particularly full size ones, I go through since I've been trying not to open and partially use so many things all at once. 

Re: Empties - 2019

38 full sized products!  That's really great, @itsfi!

Re: Empties - 2019

Thank you @curlychiquita! 😊 It feels good to have used up products I have (and that I had opened/started). 👍🏼😊 With the exception of a couple of items, I’m at a place where I’m opening up new things. I’m hoping to just work through those items and not open up several products without finishing them. 🤞🏼

Re: Empties - 2019

@itsfi WOW! I am sure your skin is happy!

 

Best,

Rebecca

Re: Empties - 2019

It’d better be happy @RebeccaBT! hahaha! 😂🤣 Since I focused on going through my products instead of trying everything, my skin has been happier! 😃

Great products @itsfi! I felt the same way about the PTR...

Great products @itsfi! I felt the same way about the PTR mask. I felt like I didn't see any results and it was kind of a pain. At least now I can say I tried it.

Re: Great products @itsfi! I felt the same way about the PTR...

Thank you @Lazybeautybeast! 😃 Yeah, with that particular PTR mask I think you just have to be willing to go through the routine to make it warm up or just say “forget it”, leave the mask on for a few minutes and rinse it all off. Lol.
