Great job on all of your empties, everyone! Looking at some of the pictures I have a tip, but I will place it under a spoiler. 

 

If you are happy to be done with the item and just wish it goodbye don't look under the spoiler. 

 

If you are trying to stretch out how long a product lasts and delay a replenishment purchase look under the spoiler:

 

Cut those tubes open! No matter how much you shake and squeeze, you will likely be incredibly surprised (and possibly miffed) by how much product is still clinging to the inner walls and corners.

Yes! I am kind of fighting with hurrying up to use lots of products and also to track how long a product lasts before I need to replace it. So with my HG items that I always repurchase, I always cut them open and use every last drop! With samples, I just kind of use them up and then bag them with my other empties.

 

There is always SO MUCH LEFT!!!! I'm going to take a photo of the next item I cut open to show you guys!

 

Yes this!  I have done this and been like "How is there so much?"

It is so crazy! I thought my daily spf moisturizer was done - I squeezed it so much and couldn't get any more out, but when I cut it open, I have like, 5 days' uses left!!!

Yep...I do this too. I have one of those mini spatula things so it's pretty easy to depot into a small jar. Although, if I'm not crazy about the product, I don't. Lol.

For the last day or so I have been itching to post a list of my empties.  I am feeling really good about my progress!  Having foils laying around is driving me a bit mental - I just want them gone so I am using them.  After I go though my stash of foils I will concentrate more on using my d/s and f/s items.  

 

 

 

16. Vasanti exfoliator d/s
17. theBalm Stainiac d/s
18. Lancome BiFacil f/s
19. Barefoot Venus – dry body oil in pink pepper d/s
20. Oneka shampoo d/s
21. Lancome Genifique serum d/s
22. Aveeno body lotion d/s
23. Michael Kors sporty citrus perfume vial
24. Glowing Mama exfoliator d/s
25. Alba Naturals Body wash foil & udderly smooth udder cream foil
26. Mustela baby lotion foil & udderly smooth udder cream foil
27. OTX Coconut water shampoo & conditioner foils
28. Yves Rocher Oriental velvety-skin scrub d/s
29. BareMinerals cleanser foil & moisturizer foil
30. John Frieda Shampoo & conditioner foils

 

 

Tossed: 

Biotherm f/s moisturizer.  I don’t remember how old it is… when in doubt, throw it out!!!

Weleda d/s lotion samples x2 – smells like they went bad

YSL Doll Lashes d/s mascara – just don’t love it & glad I didn’t buy it

Lash Adhesive – its very very old and definitely not worth keeping

Pacifica Multiples is an awful product.  Tossed.

Dove Deodorant – lid fell out in my school bag and the contents fell out in chunks

Pacifica BB Cream  - It made my skin break out in places.

Leeani Eco 3 in 1 d/s – A year ago I used it once or twice and it felt filmy on my skin so I didn’t love it.

I am up to eleven empties. They are all foils and deluxe samples, but that is good for me.
 
1. Sephora Rose Sheet mask
2. Dr. Jart Ceramidin Cream foil pack
3. Garnier Balancing Daily Exfoliator foil pack
4. Simy Skin Gel Cleanser foil pack.
5. Josie Maran Bear Naked Nail Wipe in Grapefruit foil pack
6. Fresh Soy Face Cleanser foil pack
7. A second Fresh Soy Fresh Cleanser foil pack
8. Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream foil pack
9. Spa Vita Berry Shampoo travel size - from a Hair and Body Memebox
10. Thierry Mugler Angel Perfuming Shower Gel travel size
11. Molton Brown Energizing Seamoss Bath and Shower Gel travel size - this is good for me because I got it for Christmas and used it right away. I usually hoard my Christmas gifts and will find them unused when the following Christmas rolls around!

I realize I forgot to answer you, sorry!

 

Actually, I'll tell you what it is, but to be honest, I read the ingredients and then realized I'll not be purchasing the full size and that the effects were likely temporary rather than restored hair.

 

 

It was the Agave Oil Treatment.

 

bb2.JPG

 

s1521731-main-hero.jpg

 

But I found out it's full of silicones, so I'm not going to repurchase. It basically just smoothed my hair and made it look shiny but didn't really do anything. But then again, I'm biased and don't like silicones in my hair or skincare routine.

 

 

 

 

 

I see you used a sample of this too. What did you think?

 

Some other things I've tried this week are getting me kind of tempted, though!

 

 

Fresh Seaberry Oil sample, Murad Intensive-C Peel sample, especially.

 

 

 

I kinda like the Argan oil treatment, but not enough that I would buy it. And especially now that you've pointed out that it's full of silicone, I know I won't be purchasing this anytime soon. I have another sample to use I think though, I will use it but for me it wasn't a 'magical' product like it was for you  ;)

 

More empties for me:

 

20. Lush Sexy Peel soap (sample)

21. Lush Honey I Washed the Kids soap (sample)
22. Nourish Organics Coconut & Argan lotion (I love coconut but this was awful! Yucky smell)

23. Lush Breath of Fresh Air Toner (FS; I love this toner but now I also have one by Clinique and another one by Lush to use, so I’ll won’t be buying it for a while. Will repurchase at some point though, it’s probably my fav)

24. Skintimate Mandarin shaving cream (FS)

25. Smashbox Photo Finish Primer (sample, loved it! But I think I like Benefit the Pore-Fessionnal better. I might re-purchase but I'm not 100% sure.)

 

Already 1/4 of my goal completed!  :D

Somehow I have ended up with like three of these (Ulta GWPs maybe?).  Hope I like them!  Anyway, I'll use them but I am loving the Paula's Choice shine stopper and, barring amazing results from some of the other primers I've accumulated, PC is probably what I'll stick with.

I might have to try some PC then... When my No Buy is over :)

Thanks for the suggestion.

Wow, you ladies are impressive!

I'm a little late to this challenge but I accept! Fortunately I have saved the last few items I finished in a basket for self motivation so I have about 10 since the 10th.

My rules are everything is a 1 count; foils, deluxe samples, full size, and perfume samples. I'll post when I hit 25 my list of items.

I haven't been participating in the thread, but I'm reading everyone's posts.  I took a picture of days 1-10 empties and I'll take a picture tomorrow of days 11-20, then post them here.  I didn't start out thinking I'd join in, but decided to save empties just to see, and I'm keeping pace with everyone.  I think.  It helps that I have this habit of using half a bottle of something, then moving on to something new and exciting.  I've been forcing myself to go back and use up the half-full bottles.  My shower is looking less cluttered!

Its time for take a break from using so many random samples and I need to start using the same products consistently for at least a couple weeks. The skin on my face is looking like its getting ready for a nasty breakout.  Now may be a good time to try out the acne product samples in my stash?  Part of me was afraid something like this was going to happen.  Though, I will continue to use samples of haircare and bath/body items.  There is still sooo much makeup...

Posting my last 10 days of empties:

 

7. Fresh Rose face mask, DS - this was okay but not hydrating (on my skin) as described

8. perfume sample, DS, the name rubbed off, just ok

9. M. A. D. serum, DS, okay

10. foot balm, FS, liked but more greasy than I prefer

11. setting powder, FS, took me more than a year to use this up and I've re-purchased

12. fresh sugar lemon perfume, DS, did not like this as a perfume but worked great as a room spray

13. Foils of Rodial Glamoxy snake serum, okay, sample was too small to make an opinion, and Dr. Haushka regenerating day cream, too herbal of a scent for me

14. Rusk texture dry finish spray, DS, awful, horrible stuff that turned my hair into straw, poor hold

15. the Body Shop silky cleansing oil, FS, took me nearly a year to use this up, I liked it but the bottle it came in leaked often around the nozzle creating quite a mess

16. Foils, Paula's Choice cleansing gel and 100% pure body cream

17. Foils, Kiehl's Creme de Corp and Philosophy Take a deep breath

18. Foils L'Oreal shampoo and conditioner evercreme, liked this

2 deluxe

31 foils 

2 perfume vials

 

To recap days 1-10

5 Full size

So proud as one of them is a LITER of shampoo! I think I am going to have to rethink taking one big picture at the end.  At this rate I will need a ladder to stand on to try and get them all in the picture!  For my next 10 segment I will take a picture and maybe just do monthly.  Not sure.  My empties list is going to take forever to type up this month!

@@numbersmom I'm glad your joining us! Using up things really is good motivation, I love doing this in conjunction with the no buy!

 

@@SneakyBurrito I'm glad you're joining!! I have the same pattern of product use- I'll use up something 1/3 or 2/3 and then move to something else. So I have a fair amount of potential empty full sizes just waiting for me to finish up!

 

@@annatomical One thing I was afraid of while testing out a bunch of samples, especially skincare, was my face having some kind of adverse reaction. Well, luckily nothing yet- my skin is looking really good, except my under eye wrinkles- they look worse. Anyway, I'm hoping I don't come across anything that does any damage.

 

@@page5 Good job on all your empties! And congratulations on finishing 3 full size items too!

 

@@lovepink Haha, I know what you mean- I've decided against saving mine and just saving them every ten days, then taking a photo and trashing. At the end, I'll just collage all 10 photos together or something, hehe. Also, 67 so far is amazing! Go you!!!

 

Ok ladies, here are my empties for Days 11-20:

 

post-106027-0-75706700-1421735032_thumb.jpg

1. Shea Moisture Restorative Conditioner FS

2. Acne.org Treatment FS

3. St. Ives Green Tea Scrub FS

4. Lavanila The Healthy Sunscreen FS

5. Red Apple Lipstick The Lash Project FS (actually could probably still use this, but it's 5.5 months old and is starting to flake when I wear it, so it's time to toss it).

6. Lush Sexy Peel bar FS

7. Jurlique Herbal Serum sample

8. PTR Cucumber mask sample

9. Tokyomilk Dark Tainted Love hand cream sample

10. Algenist gel moisturizer sample

11. Aloette restorative enzyme peel sample

Empties so far (previous empties under spoiler):

 

 

  • Sephora scrub mitt: Would not repurchase.
  • It's Skin Blueberry mask: Would consider repurchasing.
  • Exuviance Age Reverse Night Lift (foil): Would not repurchase.
  • Algenist Genius Cream (foil): Would consider repurchasing.
  • Cotz Plus tinted sunscreen (foil): Would not repurchase.
  • Versace Bright Crystal Absolu (foil): Would not repurchase.
  • Eva NYC Therapy Session Hair Mask (foil): Would definitely repurchase.
  • AmorePacific Future Response cream (foil): Would not repurchase.
  • Julep Luxe Repair Serum (foil, lot #5997700): Would not repurchase.
  • Julep Luxe Repair Serum (foil): Lot # 5997700:Would not repurchase.
  • Ahava Mineral Body Exfoliator (full size): Would not repurchase.

 

 

  • Julep Luxe Repair Serum (foil, lot #5997700)
  • Julep Luxe Repair Serum (foil, lot #5997900)
  • Julep Luxe Repair Serum (foil, lot #5997900)
  • Julep Luxe Repair Serum (foil, lot #5997900): After smelling these, and comparing them to the full size that I still have to work through, I'm questioning my memory that this product ever had a pleasant aroma. Maybe it just made me feel fancy and never actually had a scent? Anyway, none of these are rancid, they all smell like oil, jojoba oil rules, and this serum will do all the things that jojoba oil does and has some added extra good ingredients. It is 26x more expensive than jojoba oil, and is not 26x better than jojoba oil IMO. Will happily use up, but would not repurchase.
  • Lancome Advanced Genifique (foil): Don't remember much about the product itself, but remember that I was happy I didn't like it because I imagined it's really effing expensive. Would not repurchase.
  • Suki exfoliate foaming cleanser (deluxe size): Foamy! The perfect refreshing amount of sweet, like how fruit can sometimes make a better dessert than cake. I liked this because somehow it was citrusy (grapefruit) without being an irritant, and exfoliating but the sugar crystals dissolve so quickly that it felt very gentle. Also, it's made of sugar, which makes it confusingly pleasant if some happens to get in your mouth while you're washing your face in the shower. Might repurchase.
  • Ouidad Clarifying Cream Shampoo (paper "foil".... why a shampoo manufacturer thought they should put their product in paper packaging is beyond me): Really like the smell of this. Would consider repurchasing, except I have about 5 years worth of shampoo, and an active Birchbox subscription.
  • Smashbox Photo Finish Primer (foil): Ohhhhhhhh, so that's why people love primers! I definitely used too much, but it made my WnW foundation look amazing, and last forever. It smooths pores, but really emphasized wrinkles/brow furrows. I'll try using less (I have several foils) and see how that goes. Also I'm not sure how my skin feels about silicone yet. Need to use more to determine if it's worth buying.
  • Smashbox Photo Finish Primer with SPF20 and Dermaxyl (foil): I liked this one better, but can think of no explanation. Liked and disliked exactly the same things as the other one. If they're basically the same, and I end up buying one, I'd buy this one for the SPF.
  • Dermelect Foot Treatment (foil): Idk. I put it on my feet, and my feet are still there. I'd need at least a deluxe sample if I wanted to tell if it worked better than a regular lotion or cream. Would not repurchase on account of the sample is too small.

Here is the continuation of my list for days 11-20.  For the last ten days I have been going through quite a bit of product and tossing more products than I expected I would - which is definitely a good thing.  I have taken a good look at the products in my bathroom and some have been there for too long and upon closer inspection they smell strange.  Among the items I have been using, I have gone though a lot of foils in order to reduce general clutter so my number is pretty high right now.  In the coming days and weeks, as I reduce the number of foils I will concentrate more of d/s and f/s items so I won't be using as many products in such a short period of time in the near future.   

 

In the coming days I'm going to use the last of a d/s shampoo, a d/s body wash, and some more foils among other things... so I will have a good start on days 21-30.

I found it can take me 2-3 uses per foil.  Is  that common or are most single use?

 

 

It depends on the foil and how much product it contains.  Recently I used some face cleanser & moisturizer foils and I found I could get 2 uses per foil.  When I tried out a foundation foil and it was definitely a single use item.  In my stash there is a 6mL face cleanser foil and I think I will be able to use it for a few days.

    • I suppose it’s an indication of little I used to think about sleep that it never occurred to me my sleeping position was in anyway abnormal. I fall asleep on my right hand side then often sleep on my stomach, head to one side if I wake up during the night. Turns out only about 7% of the population do this.   But is there a ‘best side’ to sleep on? The jury seems to be out but there are pros and cons to each sleeping position   If you sleep on your back (which I rarely do) it’s apparently good for your spine and preventing acid reflux but you are more likely to snore. On the other hand it may “maintain perky breasts” according to this article on the CNN website. (Probably not if you’ve had a couple of kids, I’d suggest)   Sleeping on your side – right or left – apparently makes it easier to breathe and helps to avoid heartburn and acid reflux. It also tends to be the most comfortable position if you’re pregnant, especially with a body pillow. However curling up in a foetal position is not good for your neck or spine.   Some experts say you’re better to sleep on your right hand side if you have a cardiac condition as it puts less stress on the heart. On the other hand sleeping on your left may be better for your liver and kidneys.   Sleeping on your front can put strain on your neck though this can be alleviated if you only have one or no pillows. (According to the Better Sleep Council this position makes me brash, outgoing, and very uncomfortable with criticism!)   On the other hand a recent survey came up with the finding that sleeping on the left of the bed (which I invariably do) makes you more cheerful and positive – but not as financially well off as those who sleep on the right. According to the ... er... Daily Mail.   In the absence of any consensus it seems to me that there’s no reason to change your sleeping position if you sleep well or haven’t been advised to alter it by your doctor. On the other hand if you sleep badly – or snore loudly – it could be worth trying to make a change.    So what are you – a side, a back or a stomach sleeper and have you ever managed to change the way you sleep?

    • The 3900 Sport is a robotic swimming pool cleaner made by Polaris. It is their first entry into the robotic pool cleaner market which is a huge surprise to us. It's a surprise because Polaris has been making quality pool cleaners for nearly 40 years. To be truthful we think this robotic cleaner was worth the wait.   When we opened up the box the first thing we noticed was the beautiful and bold design. This cleaner is like the Ferrari of robotic pool cleaners. It is beautiful and sleek which contribute to the aquadynamic design. This cleaner looks like it can really move, which works out well when it comes time to clean the swimming pool. When we got it in the water it didn't disappoint us.   The 3900 Sport is like a pinata at a birthday party when it comes to features. It's just spilling with features and we all wanted a piece of them. These features are what really drive the performance of this robotic cleaner. One of those features is the rear water propulsion system. This system is great for cleaning those hard to reach areas. Cleaning tight corners is easy thanks to this feature.   Another great feature is the all-terrain Aqua-Trac wheels. When we opened the box we noticed that these wheels had some give to them. They were not made of hard plastic. They were made of a hard rubber material. These wheels provided great traction in the pool. They allowed the 3900 to climb the walls and steps with ease. It was like watching a world-class climber climb a jungle gym. It was pretty fast. There was no obstacle that this cleaner couldn't overcome. Dirt and debris are in trouble when this cleaner comes around.   By far the cleaning capabilities are what amazed us the most. This cleaner has deep-cleaning scrubbing brush action. The brush scrubs the floor and walls of the pool all the while loosening dirt and debris. The dirt and debris are then removed through an oversized suction intake found on the bottom of the cleaner. In our test, we found that even small pebbles were no match for the 3900 Sport’s cleaning power.   To create such great cleaning power the 3900 Sport utilizes Vortex Vacuum Technology. Now from our research, we found that Vortex Vacuum Technology uses a revolutionary vacuum flow design. This design allows for quick and efficient cleaning while maintaining maximum suction through the entire cleaning cycle. In plain English: This cleaner can eat dirt and debris like a hungry lion that hasn't eaten in days. Thanks to the two programmed cleaning cycles, quick-clean and regular cycles, this cleaner were able to clean the pool in no time.   Another feature that had us excited is the large capacity filter canister. This filter canister was able to store an enormous amount of dirt and debris. This greatly cut down on the time between cleaning filter canister. When it finally came time to change the filter canister it was easy to do. Thanks to the quick release system everything was simple. This feature by far was one of our favorites. We no longer had to deal with messy filter bags. The canister was extremely easy to clean all we needed to do was give it a quick rinse and it was ready to go.   In comparison removing the filter bags or filter media from other robotic cleaners was a huge hassle. A person has to remove the bottom and deal with a messy, dirty, and wet filter bag. The bag would then have to be washed out and usually, it took a good deal of effort to replace the bag. We loved the fact that we were able to access the filter canister from the top of the cleaner. We just popped the hood and the canister was easily accessible.   Simple and easy is exactly what we got with this cleaner as it came equipped with a heavy gauge alloy caddy. The caddy felt very sturdy and it allowed us to transport and store the cleaner with ease. It also came with 60 Ft. of double insulated cable, making it perfect for swimming pools up to 20Ft. x 50Ft. The only problem we had with the cable was that it attached to the front of the cleaner. We felt that for aesthetic reasons the cord should have been attached to the rear of the cleaner, but other than that this cleaner met our expectations.   With such a great product we wonder what took Polaris so long to enter into the robotic pool cleaner market. As a first entry, we were blown away. With its beautiful design and cleaning power, this cleaner is definitely going to change the robotic pool cleaner market. Thanks, Polaris we can't wait to see what you come up with next. If you need more information about products for swim pool, read this review. Good luck!
    • I believe no one is going to argue the statement that our reality has been seriously changed for the last twenty years due to tremendous science booms. Scientific progress makes a significant contribution to the various industries development (from space exploration to pharmaceutics) never forgetting about people`s everyday life. All technologies and robotics are aimed to making life easier. Now we don`t need to waste our time on tedious cleaning, cooking and other kinds of housework any more. Modern market is constantly inventing new devices and developing the old ones. So forget about the outmoded brooms, brushes and rags and meet three high-tech gadgets that will help you to keep your house clean without great efforts.   Air Quality Monitor     Any housewife will tell you that the best way to keep you house tidy is to do regular cleaning. If you constantly monitor the house condition and clean everything in time it will prevent you from a rush job in future. So, the first step in cleaning is promptness and quickness especially in case of dust that comes both outside and inside the house and settles on furniture, carpets, clothes, and toys. Air quality monitor does a great job by destroying dust even before it could touch the floor.    This smart gadget is inserted in the room on any flat surface at the table or bookshelf height. Special sensors constantly measure the level of invisible dust particles and chemicals (such as formaldehyde, household poisons, gasoline fumes) as well as CO2 level, room temperature and humidity – literally all factors influencing health, respiratory diseases, which the data is displayed and regularly updated. Air quality monitor can be also connected through Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. The app helps you to program personalized options for each factor taking into account your allergies, air and sleep quality. It also gives your recommendations for health improvement and track the scale and air changes over time showing the data as a colour graph. The gadget has on mode and sleep mode chosen depending on your wishes.    Air quality monitors are perfect for any flat and interior due to their plain but smart design. The combination of fair colours and nice forms makes the device imperceptible to the eyes of others and various sensors, small lights and LED-display reflect the mode and the data.         Roomba and Eufy Robot Vacuum Cleaners    Robot vacuum cleaner for carpets and rugs is another nice and useful way to keep your house clean. But the best thing about them is that they get you rid of any floor cleaning at all taking all responsibility for the house. You don`t need to do anything at all.    Robot vacuum cleaner looks like a small circle equipped with different brushes and laser sensors. The robot is charged from the outlet or special station and then moves around the house picking up dust and small rubbish with its brushes vacuuming it into the bag.    Vacuum cleaner perfectly navigates in space due to the laser sensors avoiding big furniture, walls and other obstacles. Some models are equipped with beacons that should be inserted around the house – they give the cleaner signals about the barriers. Remote control system helps run the cleaner via smartphone and get information about its present location. You can choose the mode you like – robot can vacuum the flat while you`re in (this mode is perfect for families with pets and children) or you may be at work and at the same time cleaning your apartment. But if you prefer remote cleaning, be ready to help your small friend in case it gets stuck somewhere between the cupboards.    Robot cleaners such as Roomba and Eufy have large suction power and a set of brushes that clean flat surfaces as well as carpets and rugs, tiles, linoleum, which means they can work in every room of your house. Please, pay attention that robot vacuum cleaners work better on open floor space, so there shouldn`t be any toys or chairs on their way, otherwise small elements vacuumed inside can damage the device and lead to breakdown. They also have some difficulties with corners and skirting board provoked by their circle shape, but the space under the beds and sofas so hard to reach for us causes no problems for these tiny robots.   Vacuum cleaners proved to be a really effective and relatively inexpensive tip which guarantees you perfect result. Modern vacuum cleaners such as Roomba or Eufy are noiseless, quick, easy to use, absolutely safe for children and pets and will become an indispensable assistant in housekeeping. So, think about buying robot vacuum cleaner that will soon pay off and save your time for more important things.   Steam Generator    Steam generator is one more great and very efficient way of cleaning. Recently, it`s become very popular for its safety, high quality, and hypoallergenic cleaning. The device needs no chemicals, shampoos or soaking, because, as a matter of fact, the power of steam is much greater than the power of agents. Steam generator works like a kettle - it heats the water to dry steam and then produces it under high pressure directly into the stains and other dirty parts making a quick and efficient operation. Steam generators eliminate all kinds of dirt and odors at the same time sterilizing the fiber of dangerous bacteria and refreshing the air in the room. This device is simply irreplaceable for families with kids and people suffered from allergies, not even speaking about the ecologically harmless way of work. The great temperature melts pollutions such as paints, grease, old spots, which makes it possible to use steam generator in every room and on every surface. It can be useful in kitchen (for cleaning cooker, oven, working surfaces), bathroom (for tiles refreshment), bedrooms, and so on and so forth.    Well, we see that the state of your accommodation directly affects not only the look and good impression of you as a neat person, but also your health and the health of your family. Sure, sometimes cleaning evokes acute attacks of laziness and time is too precious for wasting it on floor sweeping, but, luckily, nowadays it is easy to find the best and the easiest tips for keeping your house clean without great efforts. Try them and won`t be able to abandon this new carefree and pure life.
