Re: Empties - V2

Awesome! It seems good so far to me @lmaster. I tend to use it for a few weeks and then do a Biore to test if it is helping keep everything clear and clean

Re: Empties - V2

@ShortErica Did you ever find a cleansing balm/oil that you love?  For bath gels I always go to the philosophy ones purely because I want to have a variety of them to pick a scent based on my mood.  My shower usually has 3 bottles in there that I rotate between, though formula wise it's pretty average.  If you like the SDJ BumBum scent their body gel really is a nice one. 

Re: Empties - V2

I have found some that work fine with makeup but am still trying to find one that will do a complete job with my tinted SPF @missjeanie. I try to only have two open at a time and since I just finished one, I get to try a Korean one my sister-in-law got me. She said the reviews claimed it could remove anything so I'm excited to try it. If it works, or even if it doesn't I'll be sure to share. I don't wear tinted SPF as often since well, covid ruined my sports Sunday when it would be the perfect time to wear some heavy duty SPF and protect my skin. Maybe I'll do an outside day with the boys and test the Korean one tomorrow.

Re: Empties - V2

So...... I haven't been good at posting my empties this year (I feel like everything kind of fell off once April hit).  But, I have been keeping track on my phone.  I can't remember my original goal, but I know it was to use up more than I brought in and probably to finish around 730 empties.  At least that's my goal now lol

I'm currently at 458 empties, 101 of which are from September.  I stopped keeping track of what came in, but without TJ Maxx and Winners in my life I know it's been low.  I've had entire months where I haven't bought a thing. I'd estimate its around 150 including samples. 

September Empties (I challenged myself to a Sample September to use up a bunch of foils)


Re: Empties - V2

So frustrating about BIC not cooperating with photos @missjeanie. I haven't been on top of posting empties but at least have my pics. Just posted August and still have September to add. And what, October is almost over! You seem to be getting through quick a lot though. Awesome job!

Re: Empties - V2

@ShortErica September was a good month... I'm noticing that October is going to be a light month unless I suddenly grow another couple faces lol

Re: Empties - V2

That would be a very 2020 move having multiple faces @missjeanie 😉🤣

Re: Empties - V2

@ShortErica I won't be shocked if it happens at this point!

Re: Empties - V2


 de stashes 



 the meh category. I’d use them again if I got them but wouldn’t seek them out. 


 the nopes. The teeth whitening was hard to squeeze product out, glad I got it on clearance at TJs.



 The yeps.
If I could find the UD one and done in a shade lighter I’d grab it again. Was a nice product for days where I wasn’t actually doing make up. 
The clear plastic housed a llama soap from @Shosh85 that I really enjoyed as did my nieces. I’m going to seek out some more fun soap to make hand washing fun. 



Apparently I also can’t post photos from my laptop anymore 😞


Re: Empties - V2

Excellent!! @missjeanie happy to see your trash anytime 😆🙌

Re: Empties - V2

Impressive amount of foils to go through, @missjeanie 🙂

Re: Empties - V2

So many @l8totheparty !  Thankfully I'm down to a much more manageable amount of foils now. 

Re: Empties - V2

@missjeanie  Glad your nieces liked the soap! That brand makes so many fun ones 😃 .... and dang, you did a good job getting through foils! What are all the blue, orange and green ones?

Re: Empties - V2

@Shosh85 So fun... I've ordered a few more from them!  The blue, green and orange ones are sample packs of the Ole Henriksen truth serum, night gel and moisturizer.  At some point I was given handfuls of them!

Re: Empties - V2

Wow, @missjeanie, way to use up those foil/sample packets!

Re: Empties - V2

Thanks @CookieGirl1 It was a big push and now I've gone super lax in October lol

Re: Empties - V2

@faeriegirl destash!!! Farmacy?? 😣 I'm so sad to see that,,, its my favorite,,, great empties, nonetheless 😊

Re: Empties - V2

@lmaster  That serum is normally great but I had swapped for it on a subscription box site and it smelled really bad so I couldn’t use it.
