Re: Empties - V2

Look at all of those! Great job this month @jen81 🙂

Any loves or repurchases in that group?

Re: Empties - V2

March Empties: 🍀🦄🌈




It took me months to work through the 2 Prevage Face Cleanser (these were to harsh for my face so became body washes) and the Ceramide Face Wash (gentle and supposed to cut through make up and sunscreen but I didn't feel it did a very good job of either at the end of the day) I will not be purchasing.

I enjoyed everyone of those face masks 🤩

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Oil Control Serum  is wonderful, repurchasing it again of course 😉
From my foils, once I'm through my stock pile *eep* of moisturizers the Glow Recipe Plum Plump Refillable Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer is on my serious to consider daily moisturizer list. But I have lots to finish and go through before I get it. I want to get everything gone and used and be more mindful of what I get and keep in my home. This has been my goal since January and it's been great using things up, my collection of trials and foils was getting big 😅
Biossance Squalane + 10% Vitamin C Dark Spot Serum 1.0 oz/ 30 mL and Biossance Squalane + Marine Algae Firming & Lifting Eye Cream 0.5 oz / 15 mL were fabulous and worth repurchasing for me. After I use all I have I would consider them too for a spot on my skin care shelf 😄

Happy April everyone,  good luck emptying 😄

Re: Empties - V2

You got through a lot of skincare beauties @CynthieLu. Biossance is a great brand; completely understand how it's worth a spot on your shelf.

Re: Empties - V2

Good job staying with the cleansers @CynthieLu great job sweets

Re: Empties - V2

Thank you @lmaster It was a slowly but surely kinda month but that's OK 😉

Re: Empties - V2

@CynthieLu  Wow great job! I can relate with cleansers being to harsh. I seem to have such a hard time with cleanser’s irritating my skin! 

Re: Empties - V2

Thank you @ather The Prevage One would have been amazing except they put in these micro beads, and they just (even if I was extremely gentle) were sooo harsh, so it became a polishing body scrub 🤗

Re: Empties - V2

@CynthieLu So many empties! Great progress!

Re: Empties - V2

Thank you @Mellmars1185 🥰

Re: Empties - V2

@CynthieLu Great selection of empties! 

Re: Empties - V2

Thank you 😄 @Samtian 

Re: Empties - V2

Those are some nice empty containers @CynthieLu! How was The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Oil Control Serum ? I tried Inkey List’s version but it was uncomfortable, almost burning. 

Re: Empties - V2

I use 2 drops of this in my routine, day or night. It doesn't matter,  I just try to space out what I use to not overwhelm my skin. Niacinamide plays well with most ingredients, but I try not to use too much at once. My skin likes that more.

I did have an adjustment period of about 3ish weeks before my skin got used to its 2 drops a day.

Rarely I have found it to sting, but not often. I think it's more when I tried to use it after a toner or something with aha, bha or an active, but with just face wash,  ceramide serum, Niacinamide and moisturizer it's pretty solid.

I can't handle toners everyday anyways, my skin is OK with them 2-3 times a week tops or I start getting red. 

@JoSometimes I've been very happy with this one and I've repurchased it sooo many times. I used to aim for 2 drops day and night, but I switched to once a day, and it seems to be enough for me. 

Re: Empties - V2

Happy last day of March! This month I am so impressed with my empties! 



I feel like it’s been a tatcha month!! 
The INKEY List Oat Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm 5 oz/ 150 mL 

Tatcha The Kissu Lip Mask Original 

Wander Beauty Upgraded Lashes™ Thickening Mascara 

Summer Fridays Light Aura Vitamin C + Peptide Eye Cream .5 oz/ 15 mL 

Have all been replaced with new ones. And are lIves!


OUAI Texturizing Hair Spray 1.4 oz  I love but I’m going to see if there’s another I might try out. 
Tatcha The Pearl Tinted Eye Illuminating Treatment  was discontinued it was time to toss

Tatcha Luminous Deep Hydration Firming Eye Serum 0.5 oz/ 15 mL is great but I’ve been using a retinol night cream. 
Youth To The People Mini Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Night Cream + Mask with Vitamin C 0.5 oz/ 15 mL  I found it didn’t do much for my skin. I have other sleeping masks that I like more. 
Tatcha Mini Dewy Skin Mist 0.4 oz/ 12 mL  I like it but I don’t reach for it enough. 
LANEIGE Water Sleeping Mask with Niacinamide & Squalane 2.3 oz/ 70 mL  is good but I have others I like more. 


Re: Empties - V2

Wow! That's a beautiful group of full size empties - you go @ather! And the foils, too! Brava, brava! 👏👏

Re: Empties - V2

@itsfi  Thank you!! I feel like FS takes me so long to use up! So I was so happy this month to see so many bottles!  Also finished a bottle of shampoo but I forgot to save it! I like to recycle my empty bottles. 

Re: Empties - V2

I hear ya @ather. With full sizes, it’s chipping away at them, sometimes swapping them out for a spell, and then back to using little by little and then bam! Empty bottle, tube, jar, etc. There’s months when I’ll go with maaaaybe one full size empty and then another month, I’ll have a handful! 😆 

Re: Empties - V2

@itsfi  I agree. I like swapping things out all the time! 
I find my hair likes it too! My face maybe not! 

Re: Empties - V2

Lol @ather! Your face & mine are definitely related. As much as I love skincare, I have to be super careful about not introducing new products too quickly. 

Re: Empties - V2

Wow @ather it's definitely been a tatcha month, impressive

Re: Empties - V2

@lmaster  I know right!! I do love Tatcha products!
