Empties 10 Will I Repurchase? ❄

Although this isn't a Christmas related post, I feel like it was highly overdue and who doesn't love a good, lengthy empties post to read during the Christmas season?

Avon Marbleized Blush-Post
I've had this blush for what feels like a lifetime; I've had it for ages, which is why it is no longer available! This blush is the ultimate dupe for NARS orgasm blush as it has the perfect amount of golden and pink tones throughout giving you a beautiful, natural swoosh of colour on your cheeks. It's a shame that this is no longer around as I would love to repurchase this.

Benefit Porefessional Pro Balm Primer-Post

This is my all time favourite primer I have ever tried and tested, I feel like I mention it all the time. If you have blemished, oily, combination or acne-prone skin then you need to try this out! I will forever keep repurchasing this and forever keep raving about it.

Professional Nail Care Extra Strength Base Coat-Post
This is possibly the first and only base coat I have ever used and I wouldn't say it's outstanding but I wouldn't say that it is woeful. It's mediocre. As the name suggests it is extra strength which is why I can no longer open up this nail polish anymore! This base coat prevented polish from staining my nail plate however, I did notice that it made my nail polish peel off my nail which was strange. Therefore, I wouldn't get this polish again.

Anatomicals Apricot Facial Scrub Sample*
Anatomicals remind me of Soap and Glory because of their designs and quirky packaging which I love as it makes the product seem more intriguing. This facial scrub has a strange scent as it's a mixture of mango and apricot alongside humongous beads which gave the scrub its exfoliating benefits. As the beads were rather large it made it quite rough and uncomfortable on the skin which is why I wouldn't purchase this scrub.

NSPA Skin Glow Mask*-Post
This mask is an essential for showing you your problematic areas so that you can identify what you need to spend more time. As the mask dries on your skin it draws out your impurities. absorbs excess oil as well as replenishing your skin's complexion. However, this mask does take a while to dry which can be time-consuming. I have found a new mask which works better on spots and blackheads which is what I've been loving recently and I wouldn't go back to this one.
Body Shop Vitamin C Moisturiser Sample
I was amazed when I applied this vitamin C moisturiser to my face as my skin had never felt so hydrated nor as glowing as it did then. You need the smallest amount of this lightly, orange scented cream to hydrate your skin, make it less dull yet more youthful. This cream leaves you with a glowing complexion whilst not feeling sticky to touch. I really want to purchase the full-size tub of this product.

Nivea Daily Essentials Moisturizing Day Cream-Post
When I first had this moisturiser I thought it was working wonders for my skin, however, since using it daily I've noticed that my skin has been more dehydrated than ever, which is why I want to purchase the Body Shop cream more than ever! This cream has a thick, gel-like consistency which lays on the skin for a few minutes before it begins to seep in. I've noticed that it doesn't give the hydration that I want for my skin, I feel that it would work better for those with oily skins as it doesn't leave you feeling sticky nor oily.

Imperial Leather Mouthwatering Fruit Salad Shower Cream-Post
I mentioned this shower cream far too many times on this blog, including other empties posts which shows how much I love the product. I have no words to describe how amazingly mouthwatering it is.

Beauticology Milk Chocolate Shower Cream
I was surprised when I first used this shower cream, as the name suggests milk chocolate, I was amazed that it wasn't a sickly scent. Once put on a shower puff you needed a lot to create a nice lather which wasn't too pleasing as I seemed to be wasting a lot of the product. Nonetheless, it was very moisturising to use when washing my body, leaving me with soft skin afterwards but I don't think I'd repurchase it as I like a shower wash to lather up a lot.

Beauticology Vanilla Frosting Body Lotion
Just like the shower cream, I finished up, this body lotion had a rather sweet yet light coconut and vanilla scent. When I moisturised this body lotion into my skin, after my shower, I found that the consistency was quite thin meaning the lotion soaked into the skin quickly as well as not being sticky. Although I enjoyed using this product I feel there are better lotions out there.
Garnier Ultimate Blends Mythic Oil Balm Sample
When I saw this sample in a magazine I knew I had to try it out. I have oily roots with dry ends which is why this balm would be ideal for my dry ends to help hydrate them. This balm has a unique scent to it which I cannot pin point however, it isn't overpowering. Regardless of this, once I had used this mask it made my hair feel luxuriously moisturised and smooth. My hair had come to life as it was so soft, I would love to purchase a full size.

Schwarzkopf Gliss Hair Repair Liquid Silk Conditioner-Post
I mentioned this hair conditioner in my favourite products of the year so far post which tells you how much I have loved using this! You use this conditioner once you get out of the shower and spray it all of your hair, especially your roots and they become shiny, soft and hydrated. Although, I'm unsure if I would repurchase this because I would like to try out more hair care products beforehand and it isn't as widely available anymore.

L'Oreal Men Expert Thermic Resist Antiperspirant

I heard someday, sometime, somewhere that men's deodorant was stronger than women's, so me believing this jumped on the idea and went out to purchase my first men's deodorant. For myself. Considering this antiperspirant claimed it is effective even at 45 degrees I was sold. After a while of using it you get used to the manly scent, I began growing fonder of and I do feel in some aspects that I was less sweaty from time to time using this deodorant which I'm pleased to say. Therefore, I will repurchase this on for those hotter days of the year, even though we're currently in winter!

Avon Pretty Fabulous Perfume
This perfume was my signature perfume that I used all day, every day without fail. Although this perfume isn't being sold anywhere anymore, which is a massive shame, I do wish it would come back into brochures as it's my favourite. It's a very girly, fruity uplifting scent which lasted on me for hours upon end. I'm sad to say that I'll need to look for a new signature perfume.

I feel like I've been through so many products this past month and now feel a splurge coming along. What products have you finished recently and have you tried any of these? Thanks for reading, you can find me here:
