Empties #20 Will I Repurchase?

This is my twentieth episode of empties and it's taken me this long to realise that I need a category for products that I continually repurchase. If that's not a good sign that empties are quite possibly one of the best posts to find out what people love, I don't know what is!
Empties #20 Will I Repurchase?
Products I've Repurchased 100 Times Over!

Will Definitely Consider Repurchasing!
L'Oreal Paris Nude Magique Cushion FoundationReview
I adore this foundation! It's a beautiful cushion foundation that adds a lovely luminous medium coverage base which is lightweight and dewy. I have no idea what shade I am and I'm worrying because I cannot find it in any store that I go into and I'm eager to repurchase it as soon as possible!

Alpha-H Essential Hydration Cream
I only had a sample size of this but I was very impressed by it! It's a rather thick yet luxurious cream that has an aromatic scent to it. It does take a minute or so to fully absorb into the skin but my skin feels incredibly hydrated and supple once I've used the cream. I can't see myself spending the full £35 but I would love to nab it whilst there's an offer on.
Empties #20 Will I Repurchase? Yes, Will Definitely Consider It
Hmm, Maybe!
Make Up For Ever Excessive Lash Mascara
I really liked this mascara, it separated, lengthened and added volume to my lashes which doesn't normally happen with mascara! The only issue I had was that I didn't get many uses from it, even though it was a mini, I found that it dried out fairly quickly which is a shame as it was good.

Burts Bees Soap Bark and Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream
This was actually one of the products that were in my project pan from the start of this year. I used it up fairly quickly and learnt that I actually quite liked it as it was a good product. It smells of citrus lemons which I love and in terms of removing makeup, it does it in seconds, including mascara. It's definitely a more luxurious way to remove makeup.

Decléor 1000 Grain Body Exfoliator
Dare I say it, but this is the best body exfoliator I have ever used. It's brilliant. If you love an exfoliator that you'll notice a difference with then this is the one for you. It is quite rough which personally I love as it gets rid of every dead skin cell and dry patch on my body. My only bugbear is the price!

Soap&Glory The Righteous Butter
I only had the small tub yet I seemed to go through it extremely quickly. I really like the scent of this butter and what makes it stand out from others is that in the morning I can still smell the distinct scent on my body. It has a semi-thick consistency which is hydrating and instantly makes my skin feel soft. I probably would consider getting the big tub if it was on offer.

Marks and Spencers Nature's Ingredients Orange and Ginger Body Butter
This body butter was actually from their Christmas range a couple of years ago, but I've only just got around to finishing it up. I had it for quite a while but it still worked as if it was brand new. The body butter was quite thick in consistency and was very hydrating, not to mention the spiced scent which wasn't overly powerful. I've still got a few more of these body butters in different scents to get through before I purchase any more.

Not For Me!
YSL Touche Éclat Blur Primer*
This primer was in my project pan from last year where I made a lot of progress with it. Although I used it up, I don't think it did much for my skin or makeup application apart from adding gold flecks onto my face.

REN Satin Perfection BB Cream
Another product from my project pan from this year that I wasn't as fond of. BB creams aren't something I tend to go for as I prefer more coverage, however, it was nice and different at the same time. It's super lightweight and it added a nice tint to my skin but it's just not the right product for me at this point in time.

MAC Prep and Prime Fix+ Spray
I've used this spray all up without knowing what to actually use it for. I put it in my project pan last year where I used it as a setting spray to allow all of the powders to blend together. It's just quite an 'extra' product which isn't particularly necessary.

YSL Top Secrets Lip Perfector*
This is one of my favourites from last year, it was literally stuck in my pocket and hand for the entire duration that I owned it. It works perfectly well, I enjoyed using it, however, due to the price I won't be repurchasing for that reason.

Innis Free Manuka Honey Sheet Mask
This was actually one of the products that Sal generously gifted to me and I liked it because it was one of the better fitting face masks I've tried. It wasn't too big, it wasn't draping down my neck or in my hair, it was a pretty good fit which I was impressed by. It has a light honey scent and I noticed that the remaining serum took a long time to massage into the skin which I wasn't a fan of.

Soap&Glory Clean On Me Creamy Clarifying Shower Gel
By all means, this is a nice shower gel but I would prefer to use cheaper alternatives as this is deemed to be a luxury kind of pamper evening shower gel for myself. It did as it suggested which is have a creamy consistency, be bubbly and make your skin feel clean and soft. 

Jack Wills Body Wash Pods
These were part of the Christmas sets that they put out in Boots last year and from what I can remember they were quite pricey for what they are. They had quite a bland and boring scent to them, they created a good lather but I didn't feel clean once I had used them. However, these little pods are great for travelling.

Tesco Loves Babies Moisturising Lotion
You know when you find random objects and products around your house? Well, this was one of those moments. It has the typical baby product scent which I expected but, the consistency was like milk, it was thin, making it a quick moisturising process.

YSL Black Opium Perfume*
I'm not really a perfume kind of girl so I wasn't too fussed about this one. It is quite strong and it has notes of black coffee, white floral and vanilla which create a sexy yet sophisticated scent. Not forgetting that this perfume is very expensive, I could put the money towards something else.
Empties #20 Will I Repurchase? Not For Me!
Honestly, adding the extra category in has made me a lot happier. Every time I go to look for the Alpha-H cream I want to cry inside when it's the full RRP, I want it in my life so bad! So, what products have you recently used up? Have you tried any of these before and what were your thoughts? Thanks for reading, you can find me here:
