Re: Empties - V2

@jen81 I agree, the DE deodorant sucks. 

Re: Empties - V2

@jen81 I've used the it cosmetics and I feel like it makes me super oily 😝

Re: Empties - V2

@lmaster @Yes makes it any oily mess! Tried to like it😔

Re: Empties - V2

I think this two months worth but sometimes I lose track of when I last posted them.

Re: Empties - V2

Nice set of empties @WhereYouStand!! I absolutely love the Rose Water & Ivy hand soap too!! The scent is heavenly. I have been hesitant about the SDL perfume because I've heard a lot of reviews say it doesn't have much lasting power. 

Re: Empties - V2

@WhereYouStand Great job with your empties. 

Re: Empties - V2

@WhereYouStand Wow good job on finishing Champagne pop!

Re: Empties - V2

thanks @Samtian the champagne pop pictured is actually a mini that is why I finished it so fast. I should have specified sorry about that. the mini lasts me not that long but its totally worth the purchase in my humble opinion. I already had a backup on hand so I didn't run out.  I feel its even better applied wet than when its applied dry.

Re: Empties - V2

@WhereYouStand Ah nice! 

Re: Empties - V2

Great job!! Love your labeling too @WhereYouStand 

Re: Empties - V2

Thanks @lmaster  🙂 its rare I have this many empties. it felt nice to see everything I went through in that span of time.

Re: Empties - V2

Mid August empties


The 😁 crew (have repurchased, will repurchase)




The 🙂 crew (ok, but not great)




And the 😐 crew (not for me)



Re: Empties - V2

@quspork Great job!

Re: Empties - V2

I have never tried the oat mask @quspork what didn't you like about it?

Re: Empties - V2

My biggest issue was that it just didn't do anything for my skin, @lmaster but I also wasn't a fan of the scent which was a soggy oatmeal like smell. 

Re: Empties - V2

ARGH! Sephora doesn't want me to be great! Apparently, my original post exceeded the character limit. Even after a lot of editing, I still couldn't post, so I'm breaking it up into separate posts.


July Empties (1/4)


Rating System


R (Results) - Did it work for your skin type/condition?

A (Aroma) - How does it smell?

T (Texture) - How does it feel when applied?

E (Expense) - Is it worth the cost?

Scam Alert  – They’re selling, but we’re not buying. Neither should you. Step away. Save your coint.

Clearance Bound  – Don’t rush out to buy this product. Wait for a sale because it’s not worth full price.

Haul It  – This product is seriously worth the coins. Add this to your cart yesterday! 


All these get a strong "Nope!"All these get a strong "Nope!"



First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Barriair Cream 

R (Results) - Skin feels moisturized 

A (Aroma) - None

T (Texture) - Slightly sticky, snot-like mousse

E (Expense) - $30 1.5 Fl. Oz.; Standard price for a good moisturizer

Rating: Scam Alert - This sample has me doing a heel turn in the opposite direction based on the texture alone.

Ralph Lauren Woman Eau de Parfum 

R (Results) - This has decent lasing power

A (Aroma) - Floral “Old Lady” scent

T (Texture) - Feels heavy; Probably works better for winter

E (Expense) - $64 1.0 Oz.; Since I hated this fragrance, there is no way I’m spending money on this.

Rating: Scam Alert - I absolutely hated this fragrance as soon as I sprayed it.

Truly Hand Sanitizer Germ Killin’ Gel 

R (Results) - Don’t have the ‘Rona, guess it keeps germs at bay

A (Aroma) - Basically smells like alcohol

T (Texture) - Watery; Calling this a gel is straight lies!

E (Expense) - $6 1.0 Fl. Oz.; This is probably way overpriced, and I went through it super quick.

Rating: Scam Alert - I bought this when sanitizer was scarce, but I wouldn’t recommend purchasing it.

Vichy Idéal Capital Soleil SPF 60 Ultra-Light Body and Face Sunscreen with Antioxidants 

R (Results) - Provides expected sun protection and doesn’t give white cast since it’s a chemical sunscreen, but it doesn’t leave the skin with the healthy glow I like

A (Aroma) - YUCK! This smells like burning plastic and old hot dog water.

T (Texture) - Liquidy and mixes well with my other moisturizers

E (Expense) - $30.50 5.0 Fl. Oz.; Price isn’t a deal breaker for me. However, I think you can get a decent sunscreen that doesn’t make you want to vomit for the same (or a lower) price.

Rating: Scam Alert - Although the texture is nice, this sunscreen STINKS!! I couldn’t wait to be done with it. Also, this sunscreen contains oxybenzone, so it’s not a reef-safe sunscreen.

Re: Empties - V2

Boo to posting troubles!! And boo to burnt plastic/ old hot dog smells!! 😖🤮🤢
