Biggest (& Last) Empties EVER??!!

Happy weekend, y'all! We made it! Wahoo! What are your plans? I've got a fun event tonight (check my Insta to see!) and then after that, who knows? Now last weekend I made went through my beauty trash, aka my EMPTIES, and made this video for you. If you don't know what an Empties videos is, I share my used up beauty products and then give a quick review as to whether I'd purchase them again or not. There's just something that's different about an empties video versus a first impression of a product, am I right? Check out my BIGGEST EMPTIES EVER below:

Ah, here they are in their empty glory. Most products have been reviewed on here already, so you can watch the video for my thoughts or you can search my blog for the products you are interested in. So yes, this will be my last empties post. As much as I enjoy making these, it seems that y'all don't. I can't justify the effort and time for such little payoff, so this is it. I want to thank everyone who took the time to watch my Empties' videos (I think I did 3 or 4) and who commented on my posts.

But let's end this with a treat for you. I want to thank you for reading and one way to do that is with a $100 giveaway. All you have to do is click HERE and leave your name and email in a comment.

  1. Yay, empties! This is probably my favourite type of post :) Shows the blogger genuinely must have liked the product to have actually used it all. This is a huge amount of empty products, haha!

  11. Nice video.
    And great tips too.
    I guess the ones that are emptied are
    the great ones for you.

  12. I have an insane amount of empty bottles underneath my bathroom counter and my fiance thinks I'm crazy, haha!

  13. Great tips, and recommendations, girl! I have the terrible habit of buying more stuff before using up other products - I'm definitely going to take some of your recommendations for my next shopping trip :)

  14. I'm at work right now, but definitely going to watch this later! :)

  15. This post makes me feel better for my own massive empties every month. :-) It's a little sad that this is your last, but I completely understand where you're coming from. And you're right empties posts are very labour intensive! :-)

  16. I've really tried to curtail my habit of buying other products before I'm finished with the ones I have. I love empties posts!

  17. I love your accent :)
    I love seeing what products other like. I love finding ones I've never even heard of before.

  18. so many empties! i love it's a 10 too. seems like you found a lot of products that you like. it's the worst when things are discontinued!


  19. Holy Moly thats a TON of favorites! I need to check out the brush cleaner for Michaels! Thanks for the heads up about that.

  20. You must have like the products to have used them all - I don't usually finish them if I hate them.

    That's a lot of empties!

  21. WOW! So many products. Can't wait to watch the video later!

    1. I love your accent! I'm from Snellville and don't have any accent and everyone expects me to sound so southern.

  22. so many empties elle.. I dont even have those many products with me in total :P you look great in the video :)

  23. You are so brave to make videos! But I think it is always great to reflect on the time it takes to make a post and the pay off! I have been trying to figure out what my readers respond best to - it is a process!


  24. wow congrats for a brave ! its great :)


  25. Ohhh I love empties posts! I will have to watch this at home! Looks like a great list of products!

  26. This was the first empties video of yours that I've seen, but I really enjoyed it! Honestly I think I just like listening to your southern accent though. :-)

    I love that L'Oreal shampoo and conditioner! But I do not like the Neutrogena makeup remover wipes. I got some free with a purchase and tried them, but I feel like they leave a film on my face and the scent is so strong I have to wash my face again after using them, otherwise the smell just overwhelms me.

    Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend!

  27. Oh my gosh girl, you have a hoard of great stuff! I need to come over and play in your makeup cabinet! Thanks friend! Susan

  28. What a great recap - I love using your advice to figure out what I'm buying next =)

  29. That Dial body wash that smells like oranges sounds amazing! I feel the same way you do about the L'Oreal Butterfly mascara! LURVES! I'm sad this will be your last empties post as empties are one of my favorite types of bblog posts b/c you hear what the author thinks after using something up completely. Maybe do one after a month so you have fewer products? The only thing I can think of is there's just so many products that people are overwhelmed? I found this to be true on my blog. When I do empties posts after a month or two versus 4, I seem to get more feedback. Anywho, I love it when you throw your items over your shoulder, LOL! You are too cute, Elle!
    Happy {CHILLY!} Saturday!! WOOOHOOOOO!

  30. Love the video and make up recap!! The emtpies idea is a great one!

  31. whoeee now that is really huge lot of empties girl...:)

  32. wow ,love empties <3 :))


  33. I like your empties idea. After using a product for a while, you can really get a good feel for how you like it.

  34. I love seeing the products you use :)

  35. Wow, so many empties! Impressive. Can't go wrong with Bioderma :)



  36. I can never save up enough empties to do these videos regularly. I have no idea how people do it!! I enjoyed this video though :)

  37. Lots of great stuff here! I adore Bath & Bodyworks' Moonlight Path--the body wash and the lotion, too! T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

  38. Empties! I don't have that much empties. lol. I am just so fickle when it comes to applying products.

  39. That is a huge empty bag!! I love all the body washes that is one item that I am not brand specific. The Secret Deodrant makes me break out. :( I just bought some L'Oreal conditioner trying to give my hair a break from Pantene so glad you liked it!

  40. So many great products here!!! i love Dial body washes ... they smell so good!

  41. That is a LOT of empties! I don't know if I've used that many products in my whole life, haha.

  42. Bravo for using all those products! lol
