Re: Empties - V2

I have  massive bag of empties I keep throwing things into. But, I am not going to go through it because it’s so daunting, so I thought I’d show some recent empties and ACTUALLY throw them away now. I may get to the bag eventually but this is a start. 

Full Size items:

  • Not sure I noticed any difference in the Super you, though people swear by these. I will see if I’m more irritable without but not likely to repurchase. I got these at a 2-for-1 during Nordstrom anniversary sale.
  • The Sephora body wash was nice enough, I bought it in Europe accidentally, I thought it was lotion. 😞
  • Caudalie eye cream- I really liked it, very creamy and hydrating.
  • Shiseido cotton is a staple - already re-purchased full size
  • Lush bath bomb was awesome - from a Valentine’s Day gift exchange here - I finally used it, so fun and lovely scent 💕💕💕

Sample items:

  • Raw beauty - tastes pretty terrible, would not purchase
  • Dr. Jart peel - was pretty fun and exfoliating
  • Coverfx concealer - okay but not life changing to purchase from the card, would have to try a real sample in store
  • Make Up For Ever - Reboot - a great sample with large bubbles of 4 different colors. It was enough for me to try for like a week and I ended up purchasing the full size. Beautiful coverage, almost full but with the lightweight texture, and wears well throughout the day. Love MUFE!
  • Exuviance AP peel - got it on sale at Ulta, really nice when I need an acid peel

I think that’s it! Feeling accomplished at posting this, lol. 


Re: Empties - V2

@sister13, those Shiseido cottons are pillowy soft! 😍 

Re: Empties - V2

I know some people don’t like them but they are HG for me! @itsfi  I think I had to buy this small size pack once when I ran out and they didn’t have the large size. 

Re: Empties - V2

@sister13  I love the scent of twilight bath bombs!! 

Re: Empties - V2

So good! And it was so cute pink and purple when fizzing in the tub! @ather 💕💕💕

Re: Empties - V2

@sister13 I love the twilight bath bomb! it smells like lavender. 

Re: Empties - V2

It was really lovely! I didn’t want to use it for a long time because I just liked how it smelled! Thanks @WhereYouStand 💕💕💕

Re: Empties - V2

@sister13 WOW! Lots of great empties! 



Re: Empties - V2

I need to post them on a more regular basis and chip away at the giant empties stockpile! @RebeccaBT 💛💛💛

Re: Empties - V2

This weeks empties. 


Nature Republic Marine Mask- I really love the feeling of this mask. It’s soothing and I like to do it after a peel. 
Skyn Iceland Eye Mask - These patchers actually don’t have serum/essence, it’s more of a solid gel that absorbs into the skin when you leave them on. I like that these are easy to put on and not messy. 
Tatcha - I didn’t realize how much I actually love this hand cream until I got to the end of it, this is my third tube over the years. I wish it weren’t so expensive. I don’t think I can justify repurchasing anymore because of the price tag. Maybe if I’m feeling like splurging during a same I will get it again. 
Moroccanoil Light - I LOVE this stuff. Only hair oil that doesn’t weigh down my fine wavy hair. 
Fresh Rose Face Mask - This doesn’t actually do anything spectacular but it’s always been a go to because it’s gentle and soothing. I have another jar I should finish but have been neglecting because I’ve been sheet masking more often. 
Primera Milk Thistle Mask - I think I've used this once before, but this time around, I don’t think my skin liked it very much. I was really red when I took it off. The mask material is nice, but I’ve been unimpressed with the serum formula and dryness of the masks across this entire line. I will not repurchase. 

Re: Empties - V2

The packaging on that Nature Republic mask is so soothing @lnum !  Glad it was a great mask too!

Re: Empties - V2

@lnum  Urg I hate reading that the tatcha hand cream is so awesome. I literally love everything from that brand!! 

Re: Empties - V2

Hi @lnum,


How did you like the Marine mask? It looks awesome! 



Re: Empties - V2

@RebeccaBT I am really enjoying the aqua collagen hydrogel line from Nature Republic and will likely buy the other masks in the line to compare when stores reopen!

Re: Empties - V2

The marine mask looks awesome!! @lnum 

Re: Empties - V2

@lmaster I am actually pretty excited for Nature Republic to open back up! Something about their mask textures and formulas seems to really work for my skin so once I get through a bunch more of my masks I will stop by to pick up others in this aqua collagen hydrogel line. 

Re: Empties - V2

That Tatcha hand cream @lnum!!! 😍😍😍 I found a DS of it the other day and will be savoring it! 🥰

Re: Empties - V2

@itsfi  Isn’t it lovely? I actually adore the body butter too. I really wish both of these were cheaper or came in a value size because I think they’re just too expensive for the amount of product.

Re: Empties - V2

The hand cream and the body butter are wonderful, but I agree with you @lnum, the price keeps me from repurchasing them outright. 💸💸 I’ve picked up a few deluxe samples or mini’s along the way. I’m on my last DS of both the hand cream and body butter. 


I’ve been trying to be selective about what I purchase this year. Last year I got my foil samples down and this year, my focus for my skincare has been DS/mini/travel and full size products that have been partially used. 

Re: Empties - V2

@itsfi I understand. I may be one of the few people who actually doesn’t even order samples pretty frequently with my orders because I find I almost never use them unless they are something I already use and want a disposable single use for travel when I’m only bringing a carryon which used to be a few times a year but now I don’t see that happening. 

This year I’m going through my deluxe sizes as well as ensuring I rotate in a bunch of FS things. I think I just needed better organization and time to think about rotating and using things up which the quarantine allowed me to do!

Re: Empties - V2

Belated May empties (ooof apologies for the terrible back-lit photos, was not thinking when I took them)

These two masks were great and aren't available anymore booo.These two masks were great and aren't available anymore booo.
