I recently realised that I’ve never posted an empties post before, despite them being one of my favourite posts to read (definitely check out Rachael’s empties posts. They’re the best by far!).


3x Cotton Wool Pads

I’ve said this before, but I go through cotton pads ridiculously fast. Even after having No Waste Face Scrubbies brought into my life (I still bloody love them to wash my face with), I can’t seem to stop using cotton pads. I will say that I don’t have a favourite brand of them (I mean, is there really a better brand to use?), but I tend to just stick with Superdrug’s ones as that’s the closest shop to me that sells them.

Will I Repurchase? Already have. Definitely can’t be without them.

BIC Flex 3 Comfort Razors

I always buy mens razors as they’re usually cheaper and work better. Stop buying ‘girly’ razors just because of the packaging!

Will I Repurchase? Yes


The Ordinary High-Spreadabilty Primer

When I first got this, I’m pretty sure that mine had leaked or hadn’t been filled correctly as half of the product was missing from the bottle. Now it’s all gone, I can’t say that I miss using it as I am using some other decent primers at the moment, but I do quite miss having it in my collection.

Will I Repurchase? Most likely. I’m in no rush too, but most likely will add it in my basket the next time I make an ASOS order.

The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution

I actually wrote a full review about this HERE, but shortly after, I stopped using this for whatever reason. It was only a few months later that I was stalking my old blog posts (no shame) that I remembered how much I liked this, and quickly used up the whole bottle. I can safely say that it did help a whole ton with my blackheads, and for the reason alone, I think I’m always going to keep a bottle of this nearby.

Will I Repurchase? Already have. I’m currently using a prescribed acne lotion at the moment, so I haven’t been able to use this, but I cannot wait to start again.

Pixi Glow Tonic 5% Gylcolic Acid Exfoliating Toner

So this one is actually kind of not used up… I brought the 1L version of this, and prefer to have that on top of my makeup storage over the smaller bottles. Since my 1L bottle was getting low, I decided to pour this bottle into the larger bottle. Makes sense? No? Okay.

Will I Repurchase? Obviously.


Mario Badescu Facial Spray With Aloe Herbs And Rosewater

I’ve mentioned this on my blog literally over 100 times, and still don’t feel as if I’ve spoken enough about it. I mainly use this just before I apply my moisturiser to give my skin an extra added drink, but I also love using this in my hair.

Will I Repurchase? Already have.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Moisturiser

I’ve had mixed feelings about this moisturiser, and even after changing to another moisturiser, I went back to this. It’s definitely not the most moisturising moisturiser I’ve ever tried, but it does really help with my oiliness, meaning it helps with my acne.

Will I Repurchase? Already have, but I’m not too sure if I will after I’ve used it all up.


3INA The Eyes & Lips Make Up Remover

I got this in my ASOS box, and at first, I wasn’t really that impressed with it being in the box and would have rather something else, but after using it to remove swatches, I fell in love with it. After that, I used it to remove my eye and lip makeup ever night, and I’m actually pretty gutted it’s all gone!

Will I Repurchase? Maybe. I did really like it, but I still have a few other eye makeup removers to use up first.

Garnier Skin Active Micellar Water

I was super late to jump on the bandwagon of this, but now I can’t imagine being without it.

Will I Repurchase? Already have.


Clarins SOS Pure Rebalancing Clay Mask Sample

I did like this mask, but at the same time, I didn’t fall in love with it. I have so many other masks for half the price which I think either do the same, or better!

Will I Repurchase? I’d possibly try to get my hands on another sample, but I wouldn’t buy the full sized version.

Dead Sea Spa Magik Mud Mask

This was one of the first ever things I reviewed on my blog, so this definitely has some sentimental value to me. Since I’ve been using some other face masks at the moment (my favourite is definitely the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Face Mask at the moment), I haven’t picked this up in a very long time, but I cannot wait to use it again.

Will I Repurchase? Yes.

LUSH Cosmetic Warrior Fresh Face Mask

I picked this up a few months back when I made a trip to Reading, and spoke to one of the many helpful staff that work there. She suggested for my skin type that I brought the Cosmetic Warrior Mask over the others since I suffer from a lot of acne.

Will I Repurchase? Most likely not. Whilst I really liked the mask, I can’t get my head around the smell.

Caudalíe Instant Detox Mask Sample

I got this sample from Feel Unique’s Sample Pick ‘n’ Mix, and the main thing that drew me into choosing this as one of my 5 free samples was the fact that it said ‘Instant Detox’. Whilst it was a nice mask, and I didn’t have any adverse effects, I can’t say that I really liked it.

Will I Repurchase? No.

PS… Radiant Glow Pearl Sheet Mask

If you saw my review, you’ll know that I absolutely loved this mask. I have such a love hate relationship with sheet masks, and I still do think that they are sort of gimmicky, but I still can’t seem to stop picking them up…

Will I Repurchase? Yes. Shamefully, but yes.


Nivea Anti-Perspirant Stress Protect

I’ve never been someone who sticks to one brand of deodorant. I honestly just grab what smells nice and claims it’s going to do a fab job on someone who’s a sweaty mess like myself.

Will I Repurchase? Already have. Brought the two together!

Impearial Leather Foamy Banana Shower Cream

I literally cannot stop talking about this shower cream. It smells of literal foamy banana sweets. Despite the smell not lasting too long on my skin, I honestly think this is my favourite shower cream ever.

Will I Repurchase? A million and one times over.

What products will you keep repurchasing?

  1. I am a huge fan of Mario Bedescue products and Garnier Skin Active Micellar water as well. Love that both products work well and are super affordable. I will always purchase those products when i am out 🙂

  2. I also go through cotton pads ridiculously fast, so I feel your pain girlie! I have too tried alternatives but nothing works quite the same, you know? Also, omg we use the same deodorant haha! I found that the Nivea one is the only one that doesn’t leave white stains behind, which is a must considering I wear only black. Great post as always ❤

    1. It’s a nightmare isn’t it! I have so many packs of cotton pads around the house though – I run out so fast! And I totally agree with the deodorant! I picked up a Sure one recently (it was on sale – oops haha!) and it seems to be pretty good so far! Thank you gal x

    1. Definitely recommend the Micellar water! I’ve been trying out their oil version at the moment, and it’s the best I’ve tried! Also, the Ordinary are really good – the website and products can be confusing at first, but i sent them over an email and they were more than helpful!


  3. I have the exact same Mario Badescu facial spray and I absolutely love it!! I know it’s not a finishing spray, but I always seem to use it as one. I just love how it makes my face feel just after applying makeup and the scent it totally divine. Also I’ve been thinking about purchasing men’s blades as I keep hearing that they do a better job and shaving than the women’s do. ♥
