Re: Empties - 2019

I used some stuff this week.





Love everything here. The sample was DE Virgin Marula, which I use to make Protini Smoothies for my skin as a sleeping mask. I would have purchased the Tatcha Pearl during the sale, but this sample lasts forever and I have three more, yay!





I’ve been wavering on these eye makeup remover pads for awhile now as they are a little on the dry side. I was fed up with the cotton pads I was using but now that I’ve discovered why everyone loves the Shiseido ones, I am going back to micellular water for now. The Cicaherb mask was fine but I prefer Mediheal’s Cica mask over this one. The Skyn primer is great if you are looking for something without -cones. I had a backup that opened from the sealed part in the fridge, now I am thinking I will have to toss it as well. I liked this Tata Rejuvenating Serum, but it didn’t seem to do much for my skin. The fresh Vitamin Nectar Moisture Glow Cream was great, but I think the Origins Night-a-Mins is very similar and cleaner.




Nothing terrible here, but nothing I would repurchase, either. The Ariul Juice Cleanse Mask as well as the Oozoo were the least favorites of these particular lines of masks. The Raspberry Lentil Juice Cleanse and the Rose Capsule Oozoo masks are amazingly awesome!




The hourglass was awful for me. I could not get it to work, even with different primers.

The Pacifica Sparkling Star Passionfruit was my 8 year old daughter’s. She confided in me that she can’t wear it anymore as she was wearing it the day her ‘boyfriend’ broke up with her and it makes her too sad😂. I bought her the By Rosie Jane Discovery Set at the last sale for Christmas, hope she finds something cheerier!


Re: Empties - 2019

@eshoe I felt the same about the tata serum, which was a little disappointing because this is the first one of her products I felt this way about! 

Re: Empties - 2019

Bummer, @CC3616. Yeah I love the Regenerating Cleanser, it’s probably my favorite gentle exfoliator. I went through 2 bottles of this, so I had some time to see if it had any +/- effects.

It’s so helpful when I don’t post on the masking thread about a mask I’ve tried, @lmaster. Even today, there were a few I thought, ‘hmmmm. Did I like that one or not?’ I decided if I couldn’t remember, it must have been just meh😆

Re: Empties - 2019

@eshoe I purchased the Tatcha The Pearl Tinted Eye Illuminating Treatment Moonlightas soon as it came out and I love it. I’m not even a quarter through my jar. You really only need the smallest amount. 

Re: Empties - 2019

If it didn’t expire at some point, a jar might last me a couple of years, at least @ather

Re: Empties - 2019

@eshoe I agree. I kinda wish it came in a mini size. Then I could use it up and not worry and only purchase when it’s gone. 

Re: Empties - 2019

I was on a mission to use up some foil samples this month:


This Bath & Body Works candle is one of my absolute favorites!  These were the best empties of the month.This Bath & Body Works candle is one of my absolute favorites! These were the best empties of the month.Meh.Meh.

@lmaster it's probably my favorite Christmas candle scent.  Ironically, I'm legit standing in a 5-mile long line at Bath and Body Works for their annual Candle Day Sale and I'm buying another one, lol.

@lmaster  at the rate this line is moving I'm going to be oozing virtue.

Oh honey!! @CookieGirl1 I'm so sorry you have to stand there!! I know it is not fun! 

Re: Empties - 2019

@CookieGirl1 Wow good job!! I have a box of foil samples but I’m always so scared my face will go on strike if I try a bunch at once. Did you have any issues when trying them?

Re: Empties - 2019

@ather A lot of them were actual haircare foils because I've been having hair struggles lately and this was a good way to use up samples while trying to find something new that might agree with my hair :(.  As for skincare, I guess I'm lucky in some ways because my skin is honestly incredibly resilient and I can use literally ANYTHING and everything without even questioning whether or not it might cause me any problems.  On the flip side--maybe because my skin IS so resistive--it takes a lot for a product to really work/be effective and wow me. 

Re: Empties - 2019

@CookieGirl1 aww I guess it’s good and bad then! Have you tried the amika Soulfood Nourishing Hair Mask 8 oz/ 250 mLon your hair? I got a sample in my last order and fell in love with it. As soon as my sample is done I will repurchase the full size. 

Re: Empties - 2019

@ather funny you should say that.  I haven't used it but my mom LOVES that mask so I actually just bought her a new one for Christmas. 

Re: Empties - 2019

@CookieGirl1 aww such a good daughter!

Empties - 2019

@scott1201 just finished this tonight. it lasted about a month. honestly didn't see any results worth buying the full-size. so I'll keep searching for the perfect eye serum for fine lines and wrinkles.

Re: Empties - 2019

@lmaster 😞 I haven’t tried that one but now I can mark it off my list!
