Still a good round of empties @Samtian 😄

Re: Empties - V2



 Empties for last month or so

Lip products are destashes 



Re: Empties - V2

Always love seeing your skincare empties @jen81! I've been curious about Medik8 - is that moisturizer one you'd use again?

Re: Empties - V2

@jen81 seems like it's getting easier to let go of those lip products that have not been used or old, great job!

Re: Empties - V2

@jen81  Great job! You finished so much this month! 

Re: Empties - V2

@jen81 Way to go! Excellent progress 👏

Re: Empties - V2

@jen81 Great work!!

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.
