Empties and a few expired products.63D2BB05-0143-4BE6-9B1C-7ACC70DCADFC.jpeg

 Grandelash mascara, TIL bakuchiol, and CT wonderglow were Nopes. B&B Sunday shampoo and DE c tango are likes but won’t repurchase.00DFB0A4-5044-4D2E-96A0-ACAB08D4C50B.jpeg

 All of these are loves and would definitely repurchase.02442C7D-DEBB-4B12-8B8B-D96499D57642.jpeg

 These expired before I could finish so I probably won’t repurchase.

Re: Empties - V2

If you try the new Herbivore I hope to hear about it, @faeriegirl . It’s one I would make an exception for on a no buy, and most definitely as a needed restock if it performs as well as the original!

Re: Empties - V2

This is a great collection of empties, @faeriegirl!

Re: Empties - V2

Love your empties! Sorry some of the products were no gos for you @faeriegirl 

Re: Empties - V2

This year has taught me to simplify my routine greatly so I have been focused on using up all my full-size products, which takes time! 


Regular restocks/HG: Briogeo, Belif cleanser, Tatcha sunscreen

Skinfix (better handcreams out there)
The Ordinary (I think my skin responds better to the Inkey List and TO products tend to break me out. I had really great results with this product but I don’t think I will repurchase in favor of The Inkey List product instead)
Green Tea Mask (These were gifted me as a 10 pack and they’re nice but I wouldn’t repurchase on my own, I prefer Sephora’s Green Tea mask)

Re: Empties - V2

@lnum I'm so very proud of you!!

Re: Empties - V2

@lmaster Thank you!!!!!

Re: Empties - V2

I haven't been on here... since the start of the pandemic back in March. I've been taking pictures of my empties over the year, but I haven't had the energy to post. My lack of energy continues because I don't have the energy to write reviews. Here are my empties since March. Feel free to ask questions, it might take me a couple of days to reply.

I cannot find my pictures from April to June. That portion of the year was mostly a blur. 🙂

Re: Empties - V2

@Samtian super impressed you finished one of the SC lip oils.  Lip products always seem to take me forever. 

Re: Empties - V2

@missjeanie Thank you! It seems like it took me forever, but I used it daily at work, like every two hours over a 12 hour shift. 

Re: Empties - V2

@Samtian  i love Lush i'd be curious to know some of your favorite products from there i'm always looking for good recommendations so i can try new products there. 

Re: Empties - V2

@WhereYouStand I'm sorry I can't be of any help. I don't have one near me and the products I get are generally gifts given to me. 

Re: Empties - V2


 this is 2 months of empties, September and October. I really haven’t been using too much lately, especially makeup products as I’m barely wearing makeup since of constant mask wearing. Anyway, here are my empties: 


loved: both Bath & Body Works candles, 2 favs for sure. The sanitizer, and also the c.o. bigelow lip balm which are from Bath & Body Works too. The balm is thick but not sticky or goopy. I wore it at night and also through the day. Already repurchased. VS Pink body spray was sweet and light, I usually layered this with a perfume and always liked the combination. Stila liquid eyeshadow, I adore these! They’re so pigmented and sparkly, but they dry out sooo quick. MILK Kush mascara, one of my top 2 mascaras. Very lengthening and dark, doesn’t smudge on my oily lids either. Already have 2 back ups. 

meh: Tatcha mask, it was nice, but it was a brightening mask and I prefer deep cleansing/purifying or oil control, this was obviously a sample, but I wouldn’t purchase. Benefit Boi-ing concealer; just too orange toned. Their shade range is not the best. It is good coverage but too orange. Wouldn’t repurchase. Lise Watier blending sponge, it was a little stiff, not awful but I prefer real techniques or beauty blender for sure. Probably wouldn’t repurchase unless it was on sale for a good price. Polish’d makeup removing wipes, removed my makeup enough to follow up with a cleanser, but there are other brands I prefer. Wouldn’t bother repurchasing. 

Hated: Tarte Knockout toner, it smells like alchol and dried out my skin. I didn’t even use the whole thing, I used it for about 4-5 weeks and then dumped the rest.
