Re: Empties - 2019

Here are my June Empties full of LOVES, LIKES, MEHS, and NOPES!IMG_0436.jpg


Tree Hut Tahitian Vanilla Bean Shea Sugar Scrub - Love the product, just not this scent. Earth Therapeutics Green Tea Hydrogel Under-eye Patch - Not enough serum, so it felt like I was tugging to get them off. Soap & Glory Drop in The Lotion - Lovely and refreshing coconut scent in a lightweight moisturizer. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrogel Mask - Love the way my skin feels after using it, but this mask doesn’t stay on properly. Garnier Moisture Bomb Super Hydrating Mask, DearPacker Lily Honey Sheet Mask, Clarisonic Radiance Brush Head, Curlsmith Scalp Stimulating Booster, TonyMoly My Shea Share It Mask Sheet - I hope these come back for the holiday season! Dove Powder Invisible Solid, Deva Curl Melt Into Moisture Matcha Butter Conditioning Mask - I did like how my hair felt, but the price of the full size has me on the fence. The Body Shop Vitamin E Hydrating Face Mist, Love Beauty and Planet Murumuru Butter & Rose 2 – Minute Magic Mask - I love the scent and how my hair feels after rinsing out the mask. I always leave my masks on for 30 minutes, so I don’t know if that makes a difference. I hope they start selling this in full size! Mamonde Narcissuss Flower Lab Essence Mask, Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment, Sephora Almond Foot Mask - I leave them on for hours, and my feet feel amazing. I only wish the booties were bigger. They always rip when I put them on! No 7 Revitalising Hydrogel Eye Masks - These gave me everything the ET masks didn’t. NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer - Very lightweight and builds up to a medium coverage. The downside is like other NARS products I’ve tried, it makes the pores around my cheeks look enlarged throughout the day. Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate, L’Occitane Raspberry Delicious Lip Scrub - I’m in love after just one sample! I’m savoring my other sample because I don’t need lip scrubs at the moment, but I only want to use this one. It has a liquid-gel texture that make it so easy to spread across the lips, and I assume it won’t dry up in the jar like other lip scrubs I’ve tried. DevaCurl Low-Poo Delight - I liked the light citrusy scent and that is free of sulfates and silicones, which is why I purchased it. This shampoo is advertised for wavy hair, but it still seemed to work on my coily hair. Soap & Glory Smoothie Star Body Spray, TonyMoly I’m Honey Mask Sheet, Morphe Continuous Setting Mist - I love how fine the mist is with this! Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Toner - This toner is so rich it could double as a toner and an essence! E.L.F. Makeup Remover Cleansing Cloths - I keep these at my vanity and use them to clean makeup off my hands or to clean spills. I would not recommend them for your face if you’re sensitive to fragrance. Ulta Beauty Makeup Remover Facial Towelettes for Sensitive Skin - I use these as my on-the-go washcloths to remove cleansing oil. They are large, soft, fragrance free, and perfect for my sensitive skin. NYX Pigment Primer - This is a dupe for my HG Smashbox 24 Hour Eye Primer! Sephora by OPI Brush-On Cuticle Oil – Decent product, but towards the end it was hard to squeeze out the oil. Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara - I've heard this is hit or miss, and it was a definite hit for me. I like how full and thick my lashes looked both alone and especially when I used a lash primer. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Overnight Gel Mask - There is probably enough for 2 applications if you’re willing to store the pod in a ziplock bag. I was not, so I slather it on my face and neck, and was rubbing in product for a while, even after letting it sit for 20 minutes. I like that it worked with my moisturizer and didn’t pill like other sleeping masks I’ve tried recently. Jane Carter Solution Nourish & Shine, Benefit Browvo! Conditioning Primer, Peter Thomas Roth Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Gel Mask – This is from my PTR Mask Mashup Gratis. I used this as both a sleep mask and a wash off mask. It didn’t wow me either time. Benefit Boo Boo Zap! – I didn’t use this often, so it lasted a pretty decent amount of time. The downside is the application process can be a little messy. Dusk LORAC Light Source Illuminating Primer, Dawn LORAC Light Source Illuminating Primer, Bittersweet / Anarchy / Jilted Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencils, Adore Cosmetics Nourishing Hand and Body Lotion, Sun Goddess NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator, Bvlgara Omnia Coral, Gucci Floral - I didn’t expect to like this after sampling Gucci Bloom, but I loved this fragrance, and I will definitely add it to my rotation.


Re: Empties - 2019

This is an impressive lot of empties @sephoraaddict918! Smiley Happy Love the mini review.

Re: Empties - 2019

Thanks for the mini reviews, @sephoraaddict918 .

Re: Empties - 2019

@sephoraaddict918 Impressive collection of empties!



Re: Empties - 2019

Hi @sephoraaddict918 ,


This is a very impressive set of empties but am I the only one that loves when you finish a stick of deodorant? 


Best Wishes,



RE: Empties - 2019

I totally love the Ole Henriksen C Rush Brightening Gel Creme. This was my second bottle and it was a 750 point reward, yay! I love that it is so hydrating to my parched skin and does not clog my pores. I look glowy. In the morning when I apply it, the bright, orange scent makes me happy. Will re purchase for sure. TO Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 is another one I will re purchase. This was my first bottle. I feel like it hydrated my skin and also LOCKED the moisture in. Sadly, I could not use it under makeup as it balled-up. But I loved it at night before bed. Unscented and very effective. Oh and that low, low price; I love that for sure.

Re: RE: Empties - 2019

Two items I adore! Great job on finishing them @christyrc 

Re: RE: Empties - 2019

Great empties @christyrc! I'll have to look into that OH cream; it sounds wonderful!

Re: RE: Empties - 2019

@christyrc Love those items. Thanks for sharing!


Re: Empties - 2019

I don't feel like I made it through very much this month; it's like I'm on the brink of finishing up several things and this month just didn't push them over the edge.


I'm just decluttering this.  I used it a couple of times and I think it's one of the most pathetic excuses for a "detox mask" that I've ever used.I'm just decluttering this.

It smelled like a slug that crawled into a smelly sock and died.  It definitely didn't belong on my face.These were just OK with the exception of the Elemis Superfood; it was actually awful.

Re: Empties - 2019

Wow @CookieGirl1, good job on the Butter Bronzer! Feels good to get through a product. That Elemis item sounds ... ewwww! But your description had me cracking up. Sounds like there will be more empties to come this month.

Great job on the empties @Samtian!

Re: Empties - 2019

Empties - 2019

all loves this week 😍❤️

Re: Empties - 2019

So nice to have all loves in a week and look at all those sheet masks! Great empties, @lmaster! Smiley Happy

Re: Empties - 2019

That you so much @itsfi 😍

Re: Empties - 2019

Last of June empties:


I've switched from the Aveda to Sachajuan and my hair has responded well. Took awhile to use these up, won't be repurchasing but might be an option for my daughter as she gets older. Absolutely love the consistency and herbal scent of the La Mer, probably my favorite product of theirs. Of course I am not going to repurchase, but a girl can dream Smiley Happy Love the Lavanila but trying some other brands for kicks. The Andalou, meh. The best part about it is the natural ingredients. 


This was a very slow week for masks. The Frudia has a floor cleaner scent, it was not pleasant, although it fit quite well. Both WF masks were awesome and repurchases. The Sephora Coconut rubberizing mask has an amazing coconut scent, wasn't the best; it cracked and didn't peel all that well. The Hey, lo mask is the second I've tried from this company and love love love. Sweet tomatoes, it smelled delicious! Fit great and gave my skin some serious love. Need to try the broccoli one next.

Re: Empties - 2019

Good to know about the Andalou @eshoe ! I see it pop up at my local winners often and the ingredients are appealing, but I’m hesitant to pick something up if I can’t return it once opened (bless you Sephora return policy)

Re: Empties - 2019

Don’t buy it @cianni. Lots of other beautiful rose masks out there🌹!

Re: Empties - 2019

June empties! Still trucking through my stash! I was hoping to hit 100 finished items by halfway through the year (I don’t include sheet masks or foils because I can’t be bothered to save them), but unfortunately I missed the mark and am at 84 at the halfway mark. I’m still pretty impressed though, and looking forward to a big July ☺️D8F2114B-A1FC-417D-AA31-57EE49287D29.jpeg





FAB face cleanser - would not repurchase. I wanted to love this because I’m always looking for a mild cleanser for my sensitive skin, and have had great luck with other FAB products. This made my skin feel dry/tight.

Laneige eye sleeping mask - would repurchase. I have a dry under eye area sometimes as a result of using prescription topicals. This has helped keep my undereye area hydrated, even in the dry winter. A little goes a LONG way, and a bottle will last for a long time. I would advise against using it more than twice a week because it is a little heavy for everyday use

ELF concealer - Not the worst formula, but it did oxidize a bit. I think this product has been discontinued but I would try an ELF concealer again. It was lighter coverage that worked well for spots, or on no/light makeup days.


Laura mercier caviar eye stick in Amethyst - This was part of my pan. I didn’t love the product already because it was more grey than purple, and it creased terribly. The product wasn’t stable in the component (was too soft) and eventually fell out into a sink, so the last 1/4 of the product was unusable. Wouldn’t rebuy.


Guerlain l’essentiel natural glow foundation DS - LOVE this foundation. It’s a light to medium coverage that is buildable. Feels nice on and doesn’t get cakey. The finish is beautiful, not too matte and not too dewy or satin. Great staying power and I didn’t have transfer issues.


Tarte rainforest of the sea 4-in1 setting mist - Would not rebuy. I didn’t find that it did a great job at setting my makeup and didn’t help with oil. I didn’t care for the scent either.


Hawaiian tropic lip balm - Just happy to have finished a chapstick before I lost it LOL. I would repurchase once I go through more of my stash. Love that it has spf and that classic Hawaiian tropic vacation scent.


Too faced mascara melt off mini - This is an HG product for me, and I’ve gone through many minis and full sized. I would only rebuy FS because the mini has 0.5ml versus 8ml in FS.


Drunk elephant c-tango multivitamin eye cream - would not rebuy. This gave me horrible milia under the eye, so I ended up using it on the rest of my face. I did like it as a Vit C serum for my face but it’s excessive to buy an expensive eye cream for use on the whole face.


First aid beauty barri-air cream - Great product but terrible packaging. Would only rebuy if the packaging was changed to be airtight to prevent foaming. My face felt hydrated, and I had the impression that it was retaining moisture better compared to other creams which I feel so more for moisturizing but less for hydrating (if that makes sense??)


Batiste rose gold edition dry shampoo - HG product. Smelled kind of like maraschino cherries, which I like. It didn’t have a rose gold color or anything. I believe this is LE, but pops up at winners/TJs often. I would repurchase


Bath and body works aromatherapy stress relief sugar scrub - fantastic product. Smelled like eucalyptus and was amazing in the shower. It didn’t irritate my sensitive skin and made it SO soft. I mainly used this on my legs prior to getting them waxed and I’ve found less in-grown hairs as a result of proper exfoliation. I would repurchase because I have a hard time finding scrubs that aren’t too abrasive
