Re: Empties - 2019

 I use Farmacy Green Clean every night, and I've been using the Dr. Brandt hydro biotic cleanser in the morning for the last 3-4 months (so nice and gentle!). I've also started, and can't complain about, the OLEHENRIKSEN - The Clean Truth™ Foaming Cleanser

I haven't used the First Aid Beauty Pure Skin Face Cleanser 5 oz/ 150 mL enough to form a solid opinion, but it's in my travel bag and I have no complaints using it.

Of course the Enzyme cleaning powder is great, I use it in the mornings sometimes if I remember .



I almost bought an Olehendriksen CT this sale, then realized I have enough trial sizes of others to last me a little while.  Gotta use up some of the stash, considering the stash only started collecting this year as I've made my way to a betterskin-care routine. Lol



Re: Empties - 2019

Nice job @itsfi   Especially on the full sizes!

Re: Empties - 2019

The full sizes are definitely the more challenging ones @emaisgr8, especially if it’s not a product I use every day. 

Re: Empties - 2019

Nice set of empties @itsfi!!! 

Re: Empties - 2019

Thank you @sephoraaddict918! 🤗 I’ve been working through a lot of products that were open and just sitting on my shelf. Feels good to be making some dents in my collection, figuring out which are must have’s and making room for other products. 🥰

there's something amazing about the farmacy cleansing balm! @itsfi I can say, I'll probably stick with this brand for a long time 😉

Re: there's something amazing about the farmacy cleansing bal...

@lmaster, the Farmacy cleansing balm, the original and the deliciously scented limited edition cherry one, are wonderful! Loove. It's not over-the-top to have 3 or 4 cleansing balms in rotation, is it? Hahaha! I've been impressed with Farmacy; lots of great products from the brand. 🙂

Re: there's something amazing about the farmacy cleansing bal...

Couldn't agree more @itsfi 💜

September & October Empties 




- COSRX Acne Stickers - I always have to have these on hand.
- ELF - Hydrating Water Sheet Mask. Love using this one. Still have 2 left. 
-ELF - Mattifying Translucent Powder. I loved this little thing, but unfortunately, I don't see it on their website anymore.
-Urban Decay Primer Potion - Already opened my backup & purchased another backup went it was 50% off. 
-Clinique - Quickliner for eyes intense - intense chocolate. Will be repurchasing when I need a new brown eyeliner. 
-Vichy - Pore purifying clay masks. These do have a fragrant scent to them but not enough to bother me. Really enjoyed these, and I plan to repurchase.

Re: Empties - 2019

Great job @ThePopcornQuest! 😃 You went through a lot of products! 🙌🏼 Love the CosRx acne patches. Putting the ELF sheet mask on my list. 

Re: Empties - 2019

So many empties @ThePopcornQuest!!! I didn't know ELF made sheet masks. Hydrating sheet masks are my FAVE, so I will definitely have to check out that one. 

thanks for sharing!! @ThatPopcornQuest

October empties:


Loved all the masks, especially the Annie's Way and the by Nature Apple Stem Cell, which refreshes and brightens my face, making it glow.



These were ok.These were ok.

The Lise Watier Sublimessence smelled so refreshing. But what were these products doing that my other products were not? They were not bad, they were just fine for the most part, but I don't see myself repurchasing or collecting more samples of these items. 
The Volition serum was thick and it was weird. It didn't smell like strawberries.
The Kiehl's Creamy eye treatment was nice and rich- is nice for overnight (I just have a pile of eye creams).
The Tata Harper Resurfacing mask- smelled weird, and the effects weren't as nice as other resurfacing products. 


Fresh Black Tea eye concentrate was thick and paste-like. I didn't like that, nor how it tugged at the skin, nor how the beads of moisture inside of it never melted into my skin. I heard it has a short shelf-life, but still. I got this as a GWP in the spring, and I had to give up on it. I would not buy this.
The Creme Shop balm cleanser I thought would save me money instead of my Farmacy cleanser. That's a big No. It caused blister-like pimples and deep pimples while I used it.  It did not matter that I followed by micellar water. I stopped and so did the breakout. I had to throw it away.


All loves. Farmacy Green Clean- love this cleansing balm at night. It takes all my makeup off.
Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara- adds volume and length to my lashes. Doesn't flake.
Amorepacific Vintage Essence- loved this sample.
SK-II - what kind of magic is this? I managed to make this last 2 weeks and my skin *loved* it. My skin looked more even and glowed everyday. Glowed. I could have had some foundation-free days using this.  I'm contemplating buying it in the sale, but I do have a bottle of Amorepacific essence that I bought to get through.


Re: Empties - 2019

@l8totheparty That Honey Dew mask looks nice.

Re: Empties - 2019

It smelled divine as well. @Samtian 

Re: Empties - 2019

So many sheet masks! 🤩 Nice job @l8totheparty

Re: Empties - 2019

Thanks, @itsfi ! In the whole 'try to get through some samples' plan I had the sheet mask count did not get as high as I would like, but a great effort was put forth 😉😊 

Re: Empties - 2019

Nice set of empties @l8totheparty!! I really like using the Kiehl's eye cream as an under eye base for my makeup.

Re: Empties - 2019

I can imagine!  It was nice and rich. It would be nice for winter or nights on my skin but I have so many to get through. @sephoraaddict918 

that's so many empties!! great job 🙌 @l8totheparty

that's so many empties!! great job 🙌 @l8totheparty

Re: that's so many empties!! great job 🙌 @l8totheparty

Thanks!  I'm working on the little things. @lmaster
