Seeing product empties is so satisfying 🙂

Re: Empties - V2

@Weetart Funny, I just decluttered that same Clinique foundation for the same reasons!  I used to like it a looooong time ago and now I'm not sure why.

Re: Empties - V2

Empties / Declutter for the month. A lot of my declutter goes into a giveaway pile for whenever friends or relatives visit (albeit it’s not often) but in this case these were “expired” or dried out. I say “expired” because I don’t think they actually are, they’re in pumps (mostly) and don’t look or smell funky but they all say 2020 and I still have plenty of foundations after decluttering these so it’s probably for the best. 




  • I would honestly repurchase the Healthy Skin (discontinued) and the Flower Beauty foundations. Very nice, with a more dewy, natural finish. I’d probably skip the other foundations although none of them were bad. 
  • I would also repurchase the Sunday Riley C.E.O. 15% Vitamin C Brightening Serum and the Sunday Riley Good Genes All-In-One AHA Lactic Acid Treatment but not the Allies of Skin Vitamin C serum. The AoS is good, but it’s an oil so it’s harder to use in the morning since I don’t usually have enough time to let it absorb as much as I would like
  • I wouldn’t repurchase the Claris’s because friggin everything pills over it. Good serum but annoying to use.
  • The Youth To The People Triple Peptide + Cactus Hydrating + Firming Oasis Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL is nice but it’s an HA serum, I’m not sure if it’s worth the price for me.
  • The jar your can’t see the label of is the Pacifica Vegan Ceramide Barrier Face cream. I would repurchase and recommend it because it’s nice and thick but absorbs quickly.
  • The Beekman Bakuchiol oil went rancid too fast. I quite liked it but I think I’d pick a travel size if I do repurchase it.
  • Love the Peter Thomas Roth Mega-Rich™ Body Lotion 8 oz it’s so nice. Would repurchase for sure (though hopefully at a steep discount like I did this tube). 
  • The Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47 2 oz/ 60 mL (Jumbo) is a staple and will be repurchased in the near future. Same goes for the Youth To The People Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser (already have backups).
  • The No Poreblem primer is just not for me. My skincare is usually my primer and pores aren’t really an issue for me. This bottle is VERY old.
  • Finally, the CP shadows are just too old and dry now and the only shade still available is Empire, which I might repurchase. I regret saying goodbye to Paradox which is an awesome red.

- Also forgot to take a picture of the Peter Thomas Roth Mini Water Drench ® Hyaluronic Hydrating Moisturizer SPF 45 0.67 oz/ 20 mL that I finished (full size). It was a repurchase and I still like it, though it will make my eyes water if it gets in there at the end of the day. Might repurchase in the future.

Great seeing your empties! @makeitup305 

Re: Empties - V2

Nice job working through the decluttering and emptying out some product, @makeitup305!

Re: Empties - V2

@makeitup305 Wow great job!

Re: Empties - V2

Dang, @makeitup305, way to go through your Empties!

Re: Empties - V2

@CookieGirl1 Lol ! I never have empties to post because I have so many products in rotation at once so it takes me forever to get through stuff. It just so happened that I ran out of every skincare product at once. I probably won’t post again for 6 months lol

Re: Empties - V2

Great job!! This is a wonderful start to the new year @Samtian 

Re: Empties - V2

@lmaster Thank you!!

Re: Empties - V2

@Samtian Nice job! I like joe you keep track of your empties and declutters

Re: Empties - V2

@Mellmars1185 Thank you! I just started declutters last year and it's nice to see at the end. 

Re: Empties - V2

@Samtian This is my first year doing it. I havr not started tracking. But i might start in February. I also think 100 is a good number!

Re: Empties - V2

@Mellmars1185 Thank you! Can't wait to see what you do!

Re: Empties - V2



























For my first empties in January i think i did pretty good, I do use sheet masks almost daily and I havent been saving them usually because i end up throwing them out before I move them to my empty pile.


I am really trying to get through everything I have been holding on to for travel, which isn’t looking like it will happen for a long time so its just time to use things up.


Olaplex will be a repurchase and I am happy they have changed it to a spray. It was difficult to apply from the tiny hole. 

Amika Flash will be a repurchase as well I really like how quick it is and it made my hair super soft.

Don’t despair repair will also be a repurchase.


Korres,Biossance and the waso are destash. The korres gave me a weird rash around my nose that seems to have disappeared since i stopped using it, the Biossance didn’t work for me and I have so many others that work good no point in keeping it. And the Waso also gave me a weird reaction. 


Everything else was good but I have others that i like more.

Re: Empties - V2

@ather You're reminding me to pull out some of my hair products.  I believe I still have one of the Olaplex bottles in the nozzle like you have here.  And I need to try the Amika Flash!  I have samples that must be used to see if I need a full size. 

Re: Empties - V2

@missjeanie  Yes. I’ve been focusing on my hair and it’s making such a difference for me. 

Re: Empties - V2

You've done a wonderful job! @ather 

Re: Empties - V2

@lmaster  thank you lovely!!

Re: Empties - V2

@ather Great job! I’m also using up some travel items that have been kicking around too long. At least this way I have an excuse to buy sampler sets later 😉

Re: Empties - V2

@makeitup305  I have a problem with buying the sampler sets. But I definitely like to buy them if the products are new to me since I tend to have reactions a lot. It’s nice to just have a mini.
