May empties

I keep wondering how other people manage to finish so many products in one month. I need a few months to even reach half-way, because, at any time, I've got around four moisturisers, four shampoos, six or so lipsticks and so on open. I'm proud of the six I used up in May, thanks to liberal application! 
From right:

1. Ofra B5 Serum: A sample I got in my Vellvette Box. This was hydrating and smoothing, especially for the neck. But I don't see myself repurchasing; there are other similar products I want to try.
2. Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion: Lotion? The consistency was definitely a thick, but non-greasy cream. It did a very good job, particularly on the elbows, but as I said earlier, I love trying different moisturisers.
3. The Body Shop Rainforest Moisture Shampoo: Love this. Check out my comparison of sulphate-free shampoos here. I've already repurchased this, and it will be a regular in my shower for a long time.
4. Shiseido Mattifying Powder Compact Refill: My go-to foundation. I've hoarded these. The empty refills are handy for nail polish mixing.
5. The Body Shop Nettle Oil Balance Conditioner: This was supposed to de-grease the roots, but something about this conditioner felt off. I can't pinpoint it. It didn't do much by way of "oil balancing" either. Not repurchasing.
6. Brevoxyl Creamy Wash: Prescription face wash suggested by my derm after Vichy Normaderm tore off half my cheeks. It works very well for me; have repurchased.
There was also Lush Karma bath bomb but it didn't have a case for me to photograph. This month, I'm going to use up samples, so hopefully the June empties are substantial in number.
Have a great week!
  1. I never seem to finish anything to be able to do one of these and when I do I forget and through the darn jar/tube away!

    1. Lol you took the words out of my mouth! So this time I dumped the empties into a plastic bag and put it above the cupboard. It kept falling, so I don't know if I have the fortitude to make "Empties" a regular feature.

    1. I run through conditioners fast! OMG I'm feeling a lot worse. I'm turning over a new leaf now - already on a strict online shopping ban. No more buying until I finish up 80% of what I have (declarations of war alone can change my mind).

    1. Yes, it was disappointing. Even the smell didn't wow me.
