Re: Empties - V2

@sephoraaddict918 did you like this tgin product? I've bought a few different items, the hair mask,,I love, the hydrating foam I love, the shampoo is decent,, but the gel has an off scent to it, I'm wondering if it's not supposed to have the rose scent, like the other products 🤔 or if it's old

Re: Empties - V2

I did like it @lmaster. It worked well mixed in with regular shampoo. It's not something amazing that I can't live without, but I will definitely keep it in rotation.

Re: Empties - V2

@sephoraaddict918 I like the gel too, but the scent is not like the others in the line, it doesn't have the rose scent

Re: Empties - V2

@sephoraaddict918  Wow great job on finishing lots of stuff 

Re: Empties - V2

@sephoraaddict918   Ouhhh You’ve done excellent for November! What brand is that little glow stick sunscreen?   And omg that super hoop mega jug!  😮

Re: Empties - V2

Thank you @heartsmyface!! The Glow Stick is also from Supergoop: Supergoop! Glow Stick SPF 50 PA++++ 1 oz/ 28 g 

Re: Empties - V2

@sephoraaddict918  I love sol de Janeiro & L'Occitane products this is an amazing batch of empties. great work on using up all of these.

Re: Empties - V2

I’ve been accumulating empties for three months now.  Time to move them out to start the year fresh:) 




 Not a whole lot to mention in the soap department.  I’m liking the spongelle sponges lately.  this dalia scent isn’t my absolute favorite so I’m powering through them first 


 as much as I love the scent of bath and body works hand lotions they don’t seem to give the hydration I need with all the hand washing I’ve been doing without me adding my own oil to the lotion. The Moroccan oil hand lotion is wonderful on its own and I LOVE the scent!  


 I loved the purlisse illuminatjng BB cream in fair. It’s a good colormatch got my skin and is lightweight on the skin.  
the sugao powder is a fav of mine.  It purposefully leaves a white cast for anyone who likes their pale skin and wants a translucent look. 
the insta white milk to who cream is another skin translucency Cream I enjoy.  I would have repurchased it this year but japan was a no go so My arm is twisted and I must use up more of my stash😅

I got through four lip products!  Woooo!!!  


 I’ve been trying to get through my perfume samples.  I swear this has been going on for years. 



 All the masks I would buy again in a heartbeat if I weren’t overloaded with masks:) 


 i really enjoyed the Katesommerville skincare challenge pack.  My skin was very happy with me that week. 


 I couldn’t even force myself to get through these. The apricot body lotion seemed nice at first but I got sick of the scent very quickly.  The hand lotion smells like urinal pucks.  

Re: Empties - V2

@heartsmyface Great job on the empties!!! I can't wait for the day I ever finish a lipstick haha. 

Re: Empties - V2

Impressive amount of empties @heartsmyface 

@Is that living proof triple detox or the 5-in-1 styling cream?

Re: Empties - V2

@naturalooks15   It’s the In shower styler. It made my hair feel like it had a plastic coating on it.  

Re: Empties - V2

@heartsmyface  I totally agree I’m also not a fan of BBW hand lotions they don’t do much for me. You are doing a great job getting through things!! 

Re: Empties - V2

Wow, impressive amount of empties @heartsmyface!

Re: Empties - V2

@heartsmyface what scent of voluspa candle did you use up?  I just received a mini of a candle of theirs and I'm hooked. I am wondering about what other scents might be good once I burn through the one I've got. 

Re: Empties - V2

@WhereYouStand  I absolutely love Voluspa candles as well!! My favourites are VOLUSPA Panjore Lychee Glass Jar Candle VOLUSPA Spiced Pumpkin Latte Glass Candle  VOLUSPA Japanese Plum Bloom Glass Jar Candle  I also have one it’s got peach in the name it’s amazing as well. I don’t see it on the Sephora website tho. I usually buy the trio tins to have one in every room! 

Re: Empties - V2

@WhereYouStand   Oh my are they ever good!  They burn fairly clean and long and smell divine.  This one was Rose.  
i need to find some way to repurpose the little candle holders once I’m done cause they’re so pretty.  Maybe mini vases or something. 

Re: Empties - V2

This is impressive!! @heartsmyface 

Re: Empties - V2

@lmaster   Ha thank you . It may just seem that way cause it’s three months instead of the usual one.  It is nice to see a large pile so I can reassure myself things are indeed getting used up, but I really don’t want to be going this long between empties posts.  😅

Re: Empties - V2

Oh my goodness @heartsmyface! That’s an impressive amount of fragrances you’ve worked through. Nicely done! 👊🏼 Brava! You should be proud of yourself. That takes some dedication and discipline.


I soooo understand about getting through perfume samples! At the end of last year / beginning of this year, I donated and gifted over 3/4 of what unopen fragrance samples I had because I just couldn’t see myself getting to them anytime soon. I’m still working on the ones I kept. Good reminder that I may need to donate or gift more. 

Re: Empties - V2

@itsfi   It’s such a good idea.  I’ve gotten better at spraying them upon arrival and not keeping what I don’t like which is why there are so few duds, but yeah, maybe it’s time to just let them go and start fresh.  Haha, maybe I might even use the perfume I actually purchased😅

Re: Empties - V2

Empties from October. I have making serious dent in my stash and finished a lot of products plus didn’t buy new ones, saved money.


repost from low buy thread.

Top row is Products I mostly like and going through back ups now. I love the PHD triple detox shampoo and some of the DE stuff has been consistently used for last 2-3 years (though I am switching to either The Ordinary or Asian brands for some of the stuff)

mid row is all no buy. I mostly finished those using on my body so they don’t go waste.

bottom row is bath & body. After experimenting now I just use Dr Teal shower gel and Costco size Aveeno lotion
