Empties #16 Will I Repurchase?

Empties are some of my favourite posts to read and write, however, this one is an odd one as I've finished up some many products that I've never mentioned on my blog before. Not only that, but I'm classing a makeup brush as an empty...you see what I mean when I say it's an odd one?!
Will Definitely Repurchase!
Avon Makeup Setting Spray-Review
This was my ultimate holy grail, I used this non-stop nothing else would even compare to this in my eyes. For the price, it's definitely worth the money as it's cheap and cheerful, does its job and lasts a ridiculously long time. What you do have to be careful of is spraying it too close to your face because then you'll notice you get a wet dripping, spitting effect. But, other than that it has no scent and is great value for money. I have a feeling they've created a new version of this as I can only find it listed on Amazon now which is a bit upsetting.

Osiris Avise Nail Polish Remover
In my eyes, with a nail polish remover, you cannot really go wrong, especially not this one which I picked up for around 99p in LIDL. This is a great one for removing nail varnish and it works wonders on removing any glitters as well. It's one of those staples which you need lying around the house.

Boots Extracts Vanilla Body Wash
I adore the scent of vanilla and this line at Boots is gorgeous! It's such a lovely and refreshing body wash which lathers wonderfully into hundreds of bubbles and succulent foam. Not only does it perform well, but the scent lingers on the body for the rest of the evening which I think is amazing, especially paired with the body lotion as well.
Hmm, Maybe!
Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base in Rose Shimmer Sample
I despised this product when I first used it on top of makeup as it emphasised my pores and made my highlight and bronzer go patchy, it wasn't cute. So I took to wearing it underneath makeup and I was pleasantly surprised as I loved it. A rose golden tint isn't something I'd usually go for as my face is already tomato in colour but it adds such a subtle within glow to the skin. I would love to try out a different colour one as I adored wearing it alone on no makeup, makeup days.

Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara
I'm not one for wearing mascara as I have next to none lashes and the ones I do have are about half a centre meter long so overall it's pretty pointless for me. But, I love using this mascara by Clinique, it has such a small wand which I find extremely useful for getting to my tiny lashes. It adds a lovely black tint to the lashes whilst making them more prominent and somewhat alive. I really like it, however, the price tag is a little hefty so I'll have to get it when it's on offer.

Beauty Blender Pure Solid Cleanser
Although I'm not on about the full sized solid cleanser, I have been through two of the small mini ones that Beauty Bay occasionally like to through in with your order. I've always found it hard to find something that removes all of the stains in my brushes and beauty blender and this does the job amazingly well. The only thing I would mention is that I can find that sometimes I notice a pink tinge to the water when I'm rinsing my sponge but, if it makes it spotlessly clean then I'm happy with it.
Not For Me!
Real Techniques Bold Metals 300 Tapered Blush-Review
I've had this brush for what feels like a very short amount of time, it feels like yesterday since Real Techniques launched their bold metals collection, but I'm pretty sure it was a year or two ago now. How time flies! However, this brush has seemed to have died on me as the head, with the bristles on, flew off when I went to use it the other day. It's a shame as I used to use this for blush every day but I wouldn't go repurchasing it anytime soon, it's far too expensive for what it is.

Bubble T Summer Fruits Tea Shower Jelly
I picked this up when it was an astonishing 40p in Superdrug and now I cannot find it anywhere, online nor in store. The scent of this shower jelly is incredible, it's a combination of berries and white tea and it smells divine. However, the product itself is a little strange as it has such a weird consistency it's a bit like jelly and wax? It's honestly so unique and odd not only that but it's hard to lather up as well making it a little pointless but I suppose it is a bit of fun.

Zoella Foam Sweet Foam Cleansing Shower Gel
I'm unsure as to whether this was part of a limited edition range or not but I cannot find anywhere that sells it anymore. This shower gel was pleasant to use as it had a rather clean and refreshing scent to it, I cannot pinpoint what it is, it's just fresh. My only bugbear is that the cap broke off fairly easily which meant it was hard to store and I just tried to use it up as quick as possible.

Soap and Glory Sugar Crush Body Wash
I really dislike this sugar crush scent, I've said it before on my blog but I always end up with the odd mini one which comes in a set. The body wash has more of a creamy formula than what I remembered whereas the scent was the same strong lime mixed with bleach concoction. It goes straight up my nose and to be perfectly honest it smells horrific.

Soap and Glory Rich and Foamous Body Wash
There seems to be a running theme with these Soap and Glory scents, however, I do like their righteous butter scent that's the best one. This one smells exactly like the Beauticology sweet gingerbread body wash and I despise these kinds of scents as they are far too sweet for me. Apart from them being too sweet and sickly, the scent does linger for a couple of hours which I suppose is a good thing if you like the scent.

Revlon Charlie Silver Perfume-Review
Considering I mentioned this in a favourites post at the beginning of this year, I'm pretty sure you'll be shocked to see this one in the, not for me section. So I loved this perfume for its light and casual fragrance, which isn't too overpowering, in the Winter. However, I have noticed that it doesn't last as long as I want it to on me, I think this is because it's such a light fragrance. I have got other perfumes in my collection that I prefer way more.

I Love...Raspberry Blackberry Refreshing Spritzer
This is one of those sprays that smells good for a few minutes but after that, it makes no impact whatsoever. It has a lovely burst of berries and I loved using this as a pick me up throughout the day to give me that sense of freshness. It's great for a top up in the day or before you go out but it's not one that'll leave a lasting impression.
Can someone please reassure me that I'm not the only one that has a few gems in amongst the majority of bad reviews in their empties posts? Have you finished any products up recently or have you tried any of these? Thanks for reading, you can find me here:
