Empties #21 Will I Repurchase?

It literally feels like a week ago that I was writing Empties #20, honestly, I've used all of these products up in such a short amount of time I'm amazed. But, I'm pretty sure the majority of it is down to my success in my project pan so go me!
Empties #21 Will I Repurchase?

Products I've Repurchased 100 Times Over!
The Body Shop Mango Hand Cream-Previous Empties Post and Full Review

Will Definitely Consider Repurchasing!

The Body Shop Camomile Gentle Eye Makeup Remover
I remember when I first purchased this, a few years back, thinking it was a lot of money to spend on an eye makeup remover but with the time it lasted and how well its performed I can fully say I got my money's worth from it. I've currently got a mini on the go but I will be repurchasing after that one is finished.

Pixi Glow Tonic-Favourites
Once I put this in my Project Pan I was using it regularly and my skin just looked so smooth and glowing. I loved the effect it gave me and I will definitely repurchase this one in the future but I really want to try the Glossier one first.

Batiste Rose Gold Dry Shampoo
Batiste are the only dry shampoo brand I've repurchased from and this one did a great job at adding texture and volume as well as making my hair look less greasy. It smelt lovely too. I always pick them up when they go on offer and currently I'm using their original one as a replacement.

Hmm, Maybe!
Becca First Light Priming Filter Sample
After using their backlight primer constantly I thought I'd switch it up and use this one. This made my dull skin look brighter and as if I just had a facial, my skin looked alive! Not only that but, it smelt lovely alongside making my skin look healthier.

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer-Review

This was one of my top rated concealers, its medium to full coverage and does a great job at blending as well as covering everything. I put it into my Project Pan because it was getting a bit dry towards the end of its life, so I'm hoping I find a dupe or another favourite before I repurchase this one.

Rimmel London Kate Moss Lipstick in 105
I cannot believe how long it took me to finish this lipstick, it felt like a lifetime! I used it every single day as it was a perfect creamy nude that lasted an average few hours on the lips. Due to its creamy consistency, it didn't stay put during drinking and eating but it doesn't bother me reapplying it. I would like to explore the other lipsticks they do.

Soap&Glory Hand Food Hand Cream
Back in the day, I used to really dislike this hand cream, I used to find it far too greasy for my hands but now I've converted. Every time I went to use it I would enjoy applying and massaging it into my hands, it also smelt heavenly. I do prefer my mango one from TBS but this is a close contender.

Not For Me!
Freedom Pro Studio Priming Water
Once again, another product from my Project Pan that I finished up. This primer water did a good job at making my skin feel tacky ready for another primer to prepare makeup to stay on top of it. I found it quite unnecessary to apply two primers when I could just use one, a bit of a waste of time but nice to spritz and feel fresh.

The Body Shop Frosted Berries Lip Balm
This lip balm is quite good, it made my lips feel hydrated and not greasy and it worked well underneath the application of lipstick which is a bonus. However, I began to find myself tasting the frosted berries scent when it was on my lips which was a horrid sensation.

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Very Victoria Sample

I quite liked the concept of this lipstick sample, it worked and I used the excess product left on the tab with a lip brush to distribute the rest. It's a your lips but better kind of shade, a pretty pinky nude which looked nice but didn't last long on the lips.

Beauty Papier Green Tea Blotting Paper
I had never used blotting papers before I tried these, I'd always opted for the cheaper version called tissue. It seemed to remove the excess oils on my nose and a bit of my makeup too, the more I touched the paper against my skin the more it would remove. Also, it sometimes left me with little dots from the green tea and they weren't that easy to pick off.

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray-Review
So, I've finished this setting spray up and I still don't know what it did for me. I think its very overhyped and I can't understand it.

Soap&Glory 3 in 1 Daily Detox Vitamin C Facial Wash-Review
What baffles me about this face wash is that it says it's suitable for all skin types when realistically anyone with dehydrated or dry skin really need to stay away from it. I only really used this when my skin was on the oilier side of things otherwise it would produce flakes and dry patches.

Garnier Natural Honey Flower Toner
When it comes to honey products I'm never a fan of the scent and that replicates in my opinion on this product, I didn't like it. It removed the remaining makeup and dirt from my skin but not a lot more.

Amie New Leaf Deep Pore Exfoliating Polish
I wasn't too excited to use this polish but once I began to pick it up more and more I quite enjoyed using it. It was a nice gentle exfoliator and it smelt of peach flavoured sweets which is different. However, I prefer to use ones that I can visibly see and notice a difference with.

Balance Me Radiance Face Mask
If I'm honest I don't think this mask did a lot for me, or anything in fact. It claims it adds hydration to the skin but I didn't notice any difference which is a shame.

No7 Make Up Brush Cleaner-Review
This brush cleaner did a good job at spot cleaning my brushes, but I prefer to thoroughly deep clean them nowadays so I don't tend to reach for these. It was good and definitely great for travelling and makeup artistry.

Lynx Attract Her Shower Gel
Even though this was a female version of Lynx, whenever I lathered it up and washed my body with it I couldn't help but think I smelt like a man. I basically smelt like a male every time I had a shower, not cute.

Victoria Secret Coconut Passion Body Mist-Favourites
This body spray smelt incredible when I first started using it but it has been ages since that date and I completely overdid it. I used to spray it constantly and towards the end of the bottle, I was just sick of it. It was an exotic coconut scent which was ideal for the summer.
Empties #21 Will I Repurchase? Not For Me
Now that Pixi's glow tonic has left my life, I feel a little empty inside as I haven't replaced it with anything yet, do you have any good alternatives or dupes for it as I'd love to hear about them. Have you tried any of these before and what were your thoughts? Thanks for reading, you can find me here:
