April Empties 🌸


The Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow PHA + BHA Pore-Tight Toner 5.07 oz/ 150 mL was part of my project pan and I'm so happy too have finished it, it was open for a long time.  🥳

I enjoyed:

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz® Ultra-Slim Precision Eyebrow Pencil Soft Brown 

Olaplex No. 6 Bond Smoother Reparative Styling Creme 3.3 oz/ 100 mL and

Olaplex No. 9 Bond Protector Nourishing Hair Serum 3 oz / 90 mL 

#Dr. Jart+ Soothing Hydra Solution™ PRO Face Mask for Irritated Skin 0.91 oz / 26 g 👌

And the mini's of

Ellis Brooklyn MYTH Spectacular Scented Body Oil 3.2 fl oz / 95 mL 

Drunk Elephant C-Firma Fresh Vitamin-C Day Serum .94 oz/ 28 mL were fantastic.


Not as much: 

The body scents and HAUS LABS BY LADY GAGA PhD Hybrid Lip Oil were just ok.

Killer empties 🙌 @CynthieLu 

Re: Empties - V2

These were my March empties.


  1. I liked all of the foils except Wishful.  It just didn’t feel good on my face.
  2. I really enjoyed all of these. Especially the Amika Fadeblock.  But Amika discontinued it.  I have replaced the Tatcha Indigo night cream and Good Molecules Discoloration serum.  BBW hand soap is always by my sink’s. I change the scents all the time.  The O/S face primer is good.  But I have others I need to work with now.  The Sulwhasoo products are stars ️ for me.  But I am waiting for a good sale on their site which I believe @Sunnysmom  told me about.  Especially at the holidays. Elf balm works well but needs a bigger size. The foot cream was good but not special.

These are declutter products.  My dermatologist said no more body scrubs. My eczema doesn’t like it.  And the HUDA New Nudes palette just doesn’t work for me.  I have used it several times.  It doesn’t show up on my lids, even with a primer.  And that concealer? that was in the lower row was just awful. The TF mascara was a love, but this tube made my eyes water.  And the JS mascara ended up on my under eye 👁️ all the time. The elf lash and brow gel became nasty after a while.  And the FB eye serum also made my eyes water.  


Re: Empties - V2

That's so sad about the huda palette @Cissy63 good for you to let it go! Great job

Re: Empties - V2

Lots of full size empties @Cissy63; excellent work! There’s a bunch of fabulous year end sales and Sulwhasoo’s are always top notch, both for the discount and the gwps. Is it their ginseng line that you like most?

Re: Empties - V2

Nice @Cissy63 ! Love love Sulwhasoo! 

Re: Empties - V2

Wonderful work this month. @Cissy63.  You made a lot of progress. 🥳👌

Oooh I'm sorry too hear you have to leave body scrubs behind. Eczema is so finicky. 💔 Did they recommend a good wash to use in the meantime? 


One day they are going to sell Tatcha The Indigo Cleansing Balm Moisturizing Makeup Remover 1.9 oz / 54 g on the Canadian site, and I'm going too but a bottle. It sounds wonderful. 🩵🩵 

Re: Empties - V2


Loves- SDJ bumbum cream, tree hut tropic glow cream, tree hut candy cane scrub, kosas concealer, Burberry Goddess, Nuetrogena hand cream and BBW iced lemon pound cake is the best scent they have IMO!

Other items I enjoyed using

Re: Empties - V2

Fantastic empties!! @BluePaisley 

Re: Empties - V2

Awesome job on your empties @BluePaisley!  So many great smelling products 😍 and skincare and makeup too! Impressive to make your way through a concealer!!

Re: Empties - V2

Fabulous haul of empties @BluePaisley 

SDJ is sooo nice. I haven't smelt Iced Lemon Pound Cake from BBW yet, but now I think I need to. It sounds delightful. 😃

Re: Empties - V2

@BluePaisley  Good job!  That BBW scent sounds delicious 😋

 ⬆️ Loves


 ⬆️ L’Oréal duo was good but not enough to replace my favorites. LP detox is good but K18 is still my favorite. Redken was just ok. Tatcha indigo is really nice but not enough to repurchase. I really liked the Inkey moisturizer and I’ll probably buy it in the future. The inn beauty green machine was ok.


 ⬆️ The Kenra duo is good but the scent is overwhelmingly sweet. The Innisfree mask is good but I wouldn’t purchase it. The TJs hand soap is great and I’ll definitely pick it up again this winter if they have it. The Tropic Glow body wash is great! Thank you @lmaster ❤️


 ⬆️ Destashes. I didn’t like the Sunday Riley at all. It sprays out really hard and it irritates my skin. The Merit complexion stick and CT magic vanish were both great. It was just way past time to toss them.

Re: Empties - V2

@faeriegirl  Terrific job on the empties 😃.  Appreciate your opinion on these products too👍

Re: Empties - V2

Nice job on the Empties, @faeriegirl, and thanks for the mini reviews 🙂

Re: Empties - V2

Fantastic empties!! @faeriegirl ❤️❤️

Re: Empties - V2

Empties from the first Quarter of 2024 - I cannot believe it’s already April, this year has been flying by! 


Verb Volume Conditioner - this is a nice cost effective conditioner that agrees pretty well with my hair. It’s moisturizing enough but I’d like to find something that has some protein benefits. I’d probably purchase the Ghost Conditioner over this one in the future.

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare DermInfusions™ Fill + Repair Serum with Hyaluronic Acid 1 oz / 30 mL I really liked the sample of this and would love to scoop up a mini/deluxe sample to try at some point.

Juliette Has a Gun Not A Perfume one of my

favourite fragrances, this always gets me compliments. Considering purchasing a full size but I know this one is really popular right now which makes it feel a little saturated. Would consider purchasing the full size later but it’s not a priority. 

amika Perk Up Talc-Free Dry Shampoo 7.3 oz / 320 mL I loved how this preformed in terms of refreshing my hair but on my dark brunette hair it leaves almost a grey-white tone. Will not buy the full size.

Olaplex No. 5 Bond Maintenance™ Conditioner 8.5 oz/ 250 mL I liked this more when I first tried it a few years ago. I felt like it left my hair wanting more moisture and didn’t really make a difference in other noticeable ways. I’m not going to repurchase. 

Cerave moisturizing cream - I’ve been using this for years and really love how moisturizing it is for my skin. Will definitely repurchase.


Bumble and bumble Mini Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Heat Protectant Leave In Conditioner Primer 2 oz/... Great formula, horrible dispensing mechanism. I have used this product tkme and time again and I just don’t like the spray function, even on the full size. It ways gets clogged up and sprays out in chunks. I would love to see this in a squeeze bottle cream forums instead. 

Jolly Gingerbread Village body cream - lovely cream that has helped keep my body moisturized and soft. I really love this formula and the scent, would use again for winter 2025 but I prefer unscented creams most of the time. 

The Systane are so great for dry eyes, my optometrist recommended these and specifically advised against using visene. I will pick up a bottle of these drops to have on hand, definitely worth it. 

Aveeno Daily Moisturizing facial  cleanser - this is my go to cleanser, it removes my SPF gently and doesn’t bother my sensitive skin.

Briogeo Superfoods Banana + Coconut Nourishing Conditioner I do love this conditioner and how soft it makes my hair. It also smells amazing but I would like to find a protein leave in conditioner to help my hair when I use this. It just doesn’t offer enough strengthening on its own. 

#the ordinary hemi-squalene is my favourite skincare oils ever and it’s off the site 😞 will be trying The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane 1 oz/ 30 mL instead 


The Ordinary Retinol 1% in Squalane, Signs of Aging Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL I went through a full bottle and just didn’t see any benefits, I’ll or ably pick up a prescription retinol instead. 

Dr. teals foaming bath lavender - this was so lovely, would definitely purchase the full size bottle. I also love these bath salts and will be picking up more! 🛁
