Last year, I started a new series called “Empty’s” where I revisit an item after it’s been used long term, and decide whether I want to repurchase it.
You can find my previous posts here:
Here are the items in my Empty’s bin today:
Eclat Vitamin C Serum (find it here)
I checked my Amazon orders and I started using this Vitamin C serum in October 2022. That bottle lasted about a month and a half, so I ordered it again in mid-December. I’m not quite done with this bottle, but I’m almost there so I wanted to include it in this post. I love this serum, it’s easy to purchase on Amazon and depending on the day it costs between $9 – $12. I use it twice a day, after I cleanse my face, but before moisturizer and my esthetician told me to keep it up! This one is a definite reorder for me.
Sunday Riley C.E.O. Cream (find it here)
I’ve been using this Sunday Riley face cream as my daytime lotion for over a year now. It was a sporadic lotion when I needed a little extra moisture, but back in the early fall my esthetician suggested I switch to a heaver lotion so now I use it every morning. I just came to the end of the container, so I ordered another one. Yes, it’s pricey at $65 for 1.7 oz. However, a little goes a long way so I anticipate my new container lasting me well over a year.
Eucerin Advanced Repair Cream
I have issues with dry skin and even get painful peeling around my ears, so my dermatologist recommended I switch to this lotion. I used it faithfully on my body (and ears) and I just never liked it. It feels heavy and sticky on my skin and I’m just not a fan. This one is definitely a NO for reordering for me. But I did find a replacement I love:
CeraVe Moisturizing Cream (find it here) is the absolute best! It goes on nice and creamy, but then soaks right into my skin rather than sitting on top and feeling icky. It leaves me super soft and supple and helps with those extra dry ears too. A giant 19 oz container costs $15.50 and its worth every penny!

Hi! Do you still use the Origins Multi-Powered Youth Serum too? Looking for some anti-aging stuff. If so, can you add a link w/ your amazon code?
Here is the code for the Origins serum: https://amzn.to/3YTUVvw
I’m not currently using that one. Right now, here is everything I’m using: Milk Wash cleanser (2x day), Vitamin C serum (2x day) ,Sunday Riley C.E.O. Vitamin C Rich Hydration Cream (morning), : Bioelement Skin Editor (every other night) and DERMA-E Hydrating Night Cream (night). http://www.pocketfulofjoules.com/skincare-what-im-currently-using/ With that being said, I did recently purchase a retinal, which I will start using once my BBL laser treatment is fully cleared (blog post coming soon… I’ve been taking progress photos and posting them on my Instagram). =)
