November 2017: Empties Report (210 Empties in 2017)

Today I have another installment of the Empties Report for you. Let me show you what I used up and loved!

This month I have 17 empties, and a few of them are substantial products that I have been able to really make firm decisions if they fit into my needs and routine.

I will show you my favorites below, but a few deserve a quick mention. The pink jar, Glow 1 3-in-1 Balm to Foam cleanser, made it to my Favorites a few months back. It's got a thick, heavy, glue-y texture (in a good way) that makes your face feel so clean. Indie Lee products are so wonderful, and that Squalane Facial Oil was a real treat. The Biossance Oil, the tiny little dropper bottle, was quite similar to the Indie Lee version, and I enjoyed that, too, but an oil doesn't fit into my routine to necessitate a re-purchase.

The items I would re-purchase, and already have with a free, include Caudalie Vino Source Gelato face lotion and Innisfree Orchid Lotion. The Amore Pacific Gel face lotion was great but out of my price range, LOL, which is the same sentiment for the Dr. Brandt No More Needles 3D Mask above. Benefit makes a great creamy eyecream with It's Potent Eye Cream, and you already know how much I love LUSH Shower Gels. Lastly, the Clinique Moisture Surge Concentrate is a forever must-have for me, since it is so light, silky, and hydrating - this product is not cheap, but since I have been buying Clinique from Ulta, I have received some personalized coupons from the brand, including full size products as Gifts With Purchase, that make the re-purchase incredibly worth it.

I am still hustling to use up my sample packets before they expire. Recently, I ordered a Lucky Box from eopenmarket, which sends a ton of samples for a super low price (review coming soon). Most of these samples are from the Lucky Box.

Wonderful discoveries from the Lucky Box, so far, include the IOPE line, which I cannot afford, LOL. I found a sample website on ebay (review coming soon) and I am waiting for a few samples of this to come to me. I loved the IOPE Whitegen Ampoule Essence in just two uses, but it is SO expensive that I decided I should go for more samples, first, so I bought 10 packets for around $4. I get two uses from each one, so almost a month of use should let me decide more about the product. The Daeng Gi Meori products are a hair treatment, in the white packet, and shampoo in the black packet. Both smelled amazing and my hair was incredibly soft after.

Monthly Totals: 17 Empties and 13 Sample Packets

Yearly Totals: 210 Empties and 96 Sample Packets
