Re: Empties - V2


 SDJ nude cream was a love but ended up a no. About 3/4 though,  the product was almost impossible to get out. I would have to take the top off and it started to smell bad. Both Naturium products are good I just won’t repurchase because I have found products I like more.


 All of the above products are loves and I would definitely repurchase.❤️


 Volition SPF and YTTP mist are loves. The Acure is really nice especially for the price. I probably won’t repurchase because I have found something I like more. The Tarte mascara used to be a love but this tube made my lashes so clumpy.

Re: Empties - V2

So sorry the sdj didn't end up working for you!! @faeriegirl 

Re: Empties - V2

Awesome work @faeriegirl! 👍🏼 So many full size products! 😍 Which products have replaced the Naturium ones for you?

Re: Empties - V2

@itsfi  The Youth To The People 15% Vitamin C + Clean Caffeine Energy Serum  and Herbivore Bakuchiol Retinol Alternative Smoothing Serum . The Naturium was good, but I absolutely love the YTTP and Herbivore. Hopefully they don’t discontinue the herbivore again.🤞

Re: Empties - V2

@faeriegirl, isn't the Herbivore Bakuchiol wonderful? 😍 I hope that Herbivore took note from when they discontinued the product the first time. I certainly like to think they would only discontinue it as part of rolling out another reformulation, and one that didn't have a wait time. I have a couple of vitamin C products to get through after my current vit C serum but I'm noting the YTTP serum - I heard good things from folks here about it. 

Re: Empties - V2

@faeriegirl Just curious - how long did it take you to use that Youth To The People Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist with Peptides ?  I bought one recently, use it three times a day and used 20% or so.  I'm thinking it'll last a long time.

Re: Empties - V2

@greeneyedgirl107  I only use it once a day and I think it lasted just over 6 months.

Re: Empties - V2

@faeriegirl Good to know.  Thanks!

Re: Empties - V2

@faeriegirl Great mini reviews!  I have one of the TJ's hair masks that I've been 'saving' lol... good lord, I need to stop doing things like that lol

Re: Empties - V2

Great job, @faeriegirl! I've been wanting to try that YTTP Mist, but just haven't pulled the plug - good to know it's a love for you! 😃

Re: Empties - V2

I wasn’t quite sure where to place these but I want them out of the house before I decide to rethink anything so ‘ dumping them in this thread.  I decluttered two lipstick drawers.  One to go but I don’t have the motivation to keep going so calling it.    I went in thinking i’d half my collection hahahah, it’s harder than I expected.  My lips are thoroughly chapped from all the try ons so I’ll be babying them for the next few days.  I’m still feeling pretty good about the progress I made.  


Re: Empties - V2

😱 all those pmg??? @heartsmyface great job girl

Re: Empties - V2

Fantastic de-clutter @heartsmyface !  

Re: Empties - V2

@heartsmyface  Great job! I recently just did the same thing and it's definitely a good feeling! I see a few I there I destashed as well 😉 

Re: Empties - V2

Wow!!! 😳 Awesome job! This is impressive and inspiring @heartsmyface

Re: Empties - V2

@itsfi   I’m feeling pretty good about it.  I now have space for exactly three new lip products so I must use it wisely 😆.  

I still have to sniff test through my MAC lippies and see what’s gone off and what I actually want to replace from those so maybe I have more space than I know.  
It’s a good time of year for it!  You should give a particularly messy section a go and see how you do!  I certainly want to see your rejects!  

Re: Empties - V2

@heartsmyface, deal! 🤝 I really do need to go through my lipsticks. 💄 I’ve been working on clearing out some eyeshadows and that’s been harder than I thought it would be. 😬 I think it’ll be nice to clear out some lipsticks. Will plan to do it and post about it before the end of this month. 🤞🏼 I’ll tag you when I do. I have a feeling there could be a lot! 😳😆 

Re: Empties - V2

December empties 42 YTD total: 724




 the only products that were a big no for me are, the beauty blender spray,, it smells terrible and has an oil type of residue, the eyelashes ughh I try and try and still can't master those suckers! The by Terry foundation sample left my skin looking too oily. 

My goal for 2021 will be to get through 750 empties 😊

Re: Empties - V2

Awesome job getting through some products @lmaster .  A two a day goal is where I'm at as well.  I was looking at that beauty blender spray so thank you for saving me the $$. 

Re: Empties - V2

Thank you so much!! @missjeanie absolutely do not buy that bb spray!! I can say that has to be the biggest fail for me in all of 2020!!
