Re: Empties - 2019

@itsfi thank you so much! 💐

Re: Empties - 2019

@lmaster oh...the facial radial pads are one of my faves.  I've actually stopped buying exfoliating masks and use those instead.  I feel its a gentler way to exfoliate. 

Re: Empties - 2019

They are wonderful @thatjedininja already have my full size opened 😉

Re: Empties - 2019

Hi @lmaster ,


I love the Facial Radiance Pads! They really keep my skin nice and clear! 


Best Wishes,



Re: Empties - 2019

They are the best @JaneanBT 👍😊

Re: Empties - 2019

LOVED these!LOVED these!


Bath & Body Works Mineral Co Moonstone Fragrance Mist - Love the scent. Hate the non-existent lasting power.

Beauty Blender Solid Pro - The easiest way to get my brushes and sponges squeaky clean without much effort, and it last for months.

Biobelle #AfterParty - I love the scent, and I love how my face felt after using this. 

DearPacker Lily Honey Sheet Mask - SO MUCH SERUM! Even after 20 minutes, the mask was still soaking with serum. This is definitely going to be a staple in my mask collection.

Huda Beauty Kayali Vanilla - Vanilla is my favorite scent, and this is one of the most amazing vanilla fragrances. I am definitely going to purchase a full size version.

Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate - A staple in my morning skincare routine that I just can’t quit.

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Toner - A staple in my daily skincare. I like using this as an essence, and a little goes a long way, so this lasts FOREVER.

Morphe Continuous Setting Mist - Love this! I keep trying different setting sprays, but I keep coming back to this one. It sprays evenly, has no off putting scent, and makes my makeup look great. 

Neutrogena Hydrating Hydrogel Mask - I don’t like that this mask comes in 2 parts, but I can’t deny how nourished and hydrated my skin feels after using it. Plus, they are always on sale at Ulta. 

Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud Mask - This was part of my Sephora gratis and became an instant favorite. I would definitely purchase a full size version.

Shiseido Facial Cotton - I have been converted, and I’m never turning back. 

TonyMoly I’m Honey Mask Sheet - This is one of my go-to sheet masks.

Vitabath Lavender Chamomile Body Wash - The scent is natural and perfect for helping me relax during my nighttime shower. I would definitely purchase this again.



BECCA Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme - A very full coverage foundation that used to be my go to foundation. I can’t repurchase since this version has been discontinued. Not sure if I want to try the Ultimate Coverage 24 Hour Foundation that replaced it.

CK One Lipstick - This was a lipstick that I got during an Ulta 21 Days of Beauty sale years ago. Nothing spectacular, but I do like how creamy it felt on the lips. 

ELF Makeup Remover Cleansing Cloths - These are heavily fragranced, so I only used them to clean makeup off my hands.

Essano Rosehip Micellar Water - This was a random find at TJ Maxx, and it worked well as the second step in the makeup removal process. It is not at the top of my must purchase list, but I might pick it up again if come across it during TJ Maxx run.

Formula 10.0.6 Almond + Vanilla Cleansing Oil - Pretty good drugstore cleansing oil. It was very light and washed off easily. There is a slight sweet scent, but it didn’t linger and it wasn’t irritating to my sensitive skin.

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream - This is a decent moisturizer, but it is not enough for my dry skin.

L’Occitane Ultra Thirst Quenching Gel - Lightweight moisturizer that will probably work well with someone with oily skin.

Peter Thomas Roth Hungarian Thermal Mask - Another tube from the Sephora gratis. I am currently using a full size of this that I got during the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty. I like that this mask works for my sensitive skin. I would repurchase the full size if it’s on sale.

Pretty Animals Narwhal Clarifying Sheet Mask - I received this as a gift, and I liked this enough to want to try other masks from the brand. 

Sephora Pearl Eye Mask - Sephora makes some of the best eye masks I’ve tried. I keep trying different eye masks, but these are still my favorite.

Stila Shimmer and Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in Twig - The color is beautiful, but I have to be careful when applying this to make sure there isn’t a lot of creasing and transfer. 

Ulta Gel Eyeliner in Black/Brown - These are a good dupe for the Urban Decay eyeliners. I picked up a bunch more during the most recent 21 Days of Beauty.

Nothing but MEH ...Nothing but MEH ...


Clinique Clarifying Lotion 1.0 - This is my second bottle, and I’m just not impressed. I miss the Mild Clarifying Lotion, and I wish Clinique would bring it back.

Donna Karan Cashmere Mist - I used to absolutely LOVE this fragrance, which was why I was so excited to find it at TJ Maxx for such a great price. The scent is still nice, but it is not something I would purchase again. 

Dove Powder Invisible Solid - This has been the deodorant I use most often for years. I love the scent, but there is nothing invisible about this. So many of my shirts have been stained and ruined. I started using the Dove Dry Spray, so it’s time to chuck a deuce to this one.

L’Occitane Divine Eyes - Nothing spectacular to share after using the sample.

NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator in Sunbeam - It’s not brown skin friendly alone, so I would either wear it under my foundation for a lit from within glow or mixed it in the foundation for an all over radiance. It’s a decent liquid highlighter, but I prefer the Away We Glow.

Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Mask - A lackluster mask from the Sephora gratis. This might need multiple uses to get the full effect, but it doesn’t seem worth it for me.

Sephora Coconut Water Moisturizing Cream - I used this after washing off my makeup before working out. It’s good for those sporadic uses, but definitely wouldn’t work as an everyday moisturizer for my dry skin.

Sun Bum Mineral Sunscreen Lip Balm - An okay lip balm that I hope has been protecting my lips from sun damage. It had a tropical flavor, but it also had a tingling sensation that I didn’t enjoy.




Andalou 1000 Roses Sheet Mask - This was an instant fail. My face started burning as soon as I put it on. I kept it on for the usual 20 minutes with the hopes that the burning sensation would dissipate. It never did.


Re: Empties - 2019

These are some fabulous empties @sephoraaddict918! 👍🏼 Thanks for the heads up on the Andalou mask - I’ve wondered about it but will keep walkin’ on by! 

@sephoraaddict918 you really did a great job!!

@sephoraaddict918 you really did a great job!!

RE: Empties - 2019

I feel so accomplished! I don’t think I’ve ever participated in this thread as I usually pitch my empties immediately. I ran out of all 5 of these on the same day. *Mahalo The Petal Mask. I have been using this mask for about 2 years. It’s my heavy hitter, powerhouse, cures my skin woes mask. Anytime my skin is dehydrated, angry, fussy I reach for this one. *IGK Thirstygirl coconut milk shampoo/conditioner. The first day these became available on Sephora, I purchased them. Total miss for me. In fact, it took me forever to use them up. Did not help with hydration, did not help with frizz, and didn’t even smell remotely of coconut. My hair felt lackluster and felt dry. *Amore Pacific Vintage Single Extract Essence. I used to feel like an essence was not a necessary step. Then I received a sample of this. My skin felt better. Bouncy even? Texture was improved. Man, I really didn’t want to love this. It’s a costly one. But worth the purchase during a sale because the bottle lasted close to 8 months. *Tatcha Dewy skin cream. My goal is dewy skin. This is probably my new favorite cream. It’s rich, which my maturing skin appreciates. With Winter closing in, I think I’ll repurchase it as soon as I make my way through some of my others.

Re: RE: Empties - 2019

Such beautiful products @bem564! Nice work! Love that AP essence! ♥️ 

Re: RE: Empties - 2019

The AmorePacific Essence is actually my favorite essence. It's lightweight and sinks right into the skin! <333

Re: RE: Empties - 2019

Thanks for the mini reviews, @bem564!

Re: RE: Empties - 2019

Hi @bem564 ,


I love when I finish a whole bottle of an essence. I feel like those last forever! 


Best Wishes,



Re: RE: Empties - 2019

@JaneanBT Absolutely! This is the first time I've finished an essence.

awesome job @bem564

awesome job @bem564

Re: awesome job @bem564

@lmaster Thank you!


Re: RE: Empties - 2019

@bem564 That mask sounds amazing! I have to give it a try! 



Re: RE: Empties - 2019

@RebeccaBT Highly recommend! 🙂

RE: Empties - 2019

My empties for the last 3 months 🤔. Couple disclaimers: the 2 full-size TF lippies turned rancid, TF brow palette and Guerlain bronzer developed hard pan, the Rodial mascara (not sure where I got it from) has disintegrated wand (so I never got to try it 🤣) Everything else are pretty much used up or closed to it. Happy Friday everyone!

Re: RE: Empties - 2019

Hi @blackkitty2014,


Great job! Looks like you were on top of your skincare!
