Re: Empties - 2019

Empties for the past week and half or so. 

 

All the big big products were loves. The Josie Maran smelled only like vanilla, no fig, but I love the formula none the less. The Babyfacial lasted me about 1.5 years and is worth every penny to me. Beauty blender is a great sponge and I will always buy the holiday sets when there is an additional % off. No need to buy full price ever IMO. 

 

Sheet masks on the other hand... different story...

 

So I’ve been stalking the masking thread (I love you guys but just feel like I’m so behind! You know so much more than I do! Maybe I’ll come back soon when I have interesting thoughts!) and was influenced into some lookatme and other TJX popular masks. I haveta say... don’t love the lookatme masks. Actually don’t like them at all really. The guacamole and aloe had something that really irritated my eyes. The collagen was fine (obviously I was trying to get through this box lol) but I really don’t like the slime consistency of the serum. I do love the scent of the watermelon one, so there’s that. Also, can’t remember the brand of the avocado mask, although the mask itself was nice the packaging drove me insane. I could never open it and had to find scissors to snip it open. So! Trying to branch out of my Creme Shop Lapcos comfort zone and find new stuff. Smiley Happy

Re: Empties - 2019

@scott1201 I'm at 50% for lookatme. I've only tried 2: aloe - didn't like and watermelon - thumbs up. I also prefer the traditional tear open package vs. the peel kind with Holika Holika in this line. You aren't alone. And I'd love to hear any opinions - BIG or small - on the masking thread. Thanks for sharing your empties. Smiley Happy

Re: Empties - 2019

@scott1201 I totally agree that the DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial™ 25% AHA + 2% BHA Mask is amazing and totally worth it! 

 

Best,

Rebecca

@scott1201 so sorry to hear you don't have a pleasant exp...

@scott1201 so sorry to hear you don't have a pleasant experience with the LookAtMe masks 😒

Re: Empties - 2019

Nice empties @scott1201! Looove Babyfacial! ♥️ Your sheet masks loves are good ones! 💕 Sorry about the trouble you had with the Holika Holika sheet mask - the packaging is one of the things I love about it! Lol. 😂 We all have different preferences. In terms of new masks, have you tried the Papa Recipe Bombee Fruitables line of masks? I haven’t tried all of them but have enjoyed the ones I have tried and @Shosh85 and @lmaster have had good things to say about them as well. I love their Bombee Honey line of masks as well. 

Re: Empties - 2019

I’ve been the worst at posting the last couple months but just a little check in - I’m officially at 109 empties to date for 2019! I don’t count: foils, shampoo or conditioner (just dry shampoo), deodorant, toothpaste or sheet masks. I’d like to hit 150 by the end of the year! No photos but notable LOVESSSS and Hard No’s for July-today are in spoilers!

 

LOVES

Spoiler
SATURDAY SKIN - Waterfall Glacier Water Cream - the consistency, the weightlessness, how refreshed and bright my skin looked, the hydration and how easily this sunk into my skin... ugh, amazing *chefs kiss* 

IGK - First Class Charcoal Detox Dry Shampoo - here I was, thinking batiste dry shampoo was gonna be my number one forever. But then... THIS. I don’t know how it does it, but I can stretch a hair wash 10000x longer with this. Sorry if this is gross but anyone who’s gone from washing often to weaning yourself off so you only have to wash it twice a week will know - the transition is brutal, and greasy. This stuff helped me through it amazingly. Could easily go 5 days without washing my hair if need be.

BECCA - Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder - finally finished this. I am
a woman of many setting powders but this is my top for the under eye area. Whatever makes it “hydra” also makes it amazing at keeping the under eye area from looking dry and cakey. Didn’t do much for the rest of my face so I’ll be rebuying it in a mini.

Womp, womp

Spoiler
FARMACY - Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer - I wanted to love it, really, I did!! But the little Shea butter beads and the consistency and the scent just didn’t do it for me. I have so many other moisturizers I love tat this isn’t a huge loss for me, but Farmacy in general is very BIC-approved so I had high hopes for this!

DR. BRANDT SKINCARE - needles no more® NO MORE BAGGAGE™ eye de-puffing gel - admittedly when I started using this I thought I loved it. It dried out so quickly and got crusty and didn’t apply smoothly towards the end. Not too sure it did much for de-puffing because I normally don’t habe a big problem with that. I realized the main draw was the color because it color corrected my dark circles really nicely. But for the price and skincare benefits, it’s a hard no. 

Bliss lemon and sage body butter - the smell was amazing, but the product was greasy, took a long time for absorption and wasn’t all that hydrating after all that!

 

Re: Empties - 2019

@cianni WOW! That is amazing! I am sure you will hit your goal Smiley Happy

 

Best,
Rebecca

Re: Empties - 2019

Thank you!! @RebeccaBT finishing so many things has definitely helped me feel better about my unsuccessful no-buy😂

Re: Empties - 2019

You're doing awesome on the empties, @cianni!  EVERYONE seems to love that dry shampoo--it really must be amazing Smiley Happy

Re: Empties - 2019

@CookieGirl1 sooooo good! Definitely keep an eye out for it as a GWP or in a set. I’ve seem to accumulate a bunch in various sizes that way, so they’re definitely in the rotation of things that tend to pop up often in that kinda stuff 

Re: Empties - 2019

Great job on the empties @cianni!! 🙌🏼 I’m going to have to give that IGK dry shampoo a try; sounds like a nice one! 😃

Re: Empties - 2019

@itsfi I ended up buying the value set yesterday 😂 IGK - Upgraded First Class Duo. If anyone had told me I’d willingly pay $35 for dry shampoo (and not just get one as a GWP or in a SF set), I definitely would have put money that there was nothing on earth that could part me from my beloved $12.99 for the value size batiste 😂 but truly it is THAT good!!

Re: Empties - 2019

I also LOVE that dry shampoo. Great empties, @cianni !

Re: Empties - 2019

Congrats on all those empties @cianni!!! Looks like you are well on your way to meeting that 150 goals by the end of the year. I have my fingers crossed for you! Your review has me very interested in trying that BECCA Setting Powder. 

Re: Empties - 2019

Thanks girl @sephoraaddict918 ❤️❤️ The becca is AMAZING. Definitely one of those products I’m fortunate to have discovered as a GWP/potentially in a sample bag? I never would have thought to pick it up! 

Re: Empties - 2019

Ooh, I have a BECCA - Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder - Original

I got it in my Boxycharm box and I'm excited to try it!  @cianni 

Re: Empties - 2019

@l8totheparty ahh I hope you love it too! I have dark circles that I’ll use both a color corrector and concealer on if I’m going for a full makeup look, so it’s easy for it to look super dry after setting (especially because my favourite setting powders are also designed to mattify.. TOO FACED - Peach Perfect Mattifying Setting Powder – Peaches and Cream Collection and COVER FX - Matte Setting Powder are my reliable go-tos). The becca really set everything down and kept everything from looking like a dry mess and settling into creases. It’s so weird but there is definitely a hydrating/almost cooking feeling you’ll experience when you put it on - it’s so nice I’m so happy to have found it 😭 and the price for a mini is also really good which is nice haha

@cianni 😘😘🤗🤗 I really want to try the Becca!! I agree...

@cianni 😘😘🤗🤗 I really want to try the Becca!! I agree, the farmacy moisturizer is not a love, it really clogs my pores 😒 but I do love other products

Re: @cianni 😘😘🤗🤗 I really want to try the Becca!! I agree...

@lmaster BIC also turned me onto the YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer and that works 2000000000x better for me 🙌🏼 I’m still waiting for fenty to release minis of the lavender and banana brightening setting powders 😭 I’m dying to try 

Re: @cianni 😘😘🤗🤗 I really want to try the Becca!! I agree...

I'm with you on *hoping* for Fenty to release a mini of the lavender powder, @cianni.  Fingers crossed, right?

Re: @cianni 😘😘🤗🤗 I really want to try the Becca!! I agree...

@CookieGirl1 Right! If anyone from fenty is creeping the BIC boards.... we want a mini lavender! Or maybe a set of minis? With a mini brightening powder and the matching mini powder 🤔 there seems to be a brightening powder shade to complement the regular powder shade for every skin tone so it could work hmmmm
