Over the past few months I have been collecting up all the beauty and skincare products that I have finished up so I could do a Empties post featuring skincare, hair care, bath products etc.
I thought I would share my thoughts on them and whether I would or wouldn’t buy them again.


Estee Lauder DayWear Matte Moisturiser

I love this moisturiser and I think it is now going to be my holy grail moisturiser because I love it so much! It is a pretty pricey product but I do think it is worth the money because it really works for my skin and it lasts for a long time because a little goes a long way.
I found that after using this (along with other products in my skincare routine) this has really helped reduce the oiliness of my skin and makes my skin feel mattified but also hydrated. It also makes a great base for make up.

Would I buy again: YES – I have already re-purchased another one of these

Estee Lauder Clear Difference Moisturiser

I’m not sure if this is the same thing as the Day Wear Matte or there is a slight difference but they both look pretty similar and say they do similar things? If I could choose between the two products I would say that I prefer the Day Wear Matte – I just found it mattified my skin better and felt nicer on the skin, it also smells amazing which is a bonus.
I did really like the Clear Difference one and used the whole thing up but I just prefer the Day Wear Matte so if I would re-purchase one of them it would be the Day Wear Matte.

Would I buy again: MAYBE

Glossier Super Bounce Serum

I love this product and have already re-purchased another! Through this winter this product has been an absolute life saver because my skin has been super dry and after using this my skin has really improved. I use it in the morning and the evening and it has left my skin feeling super soft and hydrated.

Would I buy again: YES

Glossier Super Pure Serum

I have nearly finished up two of these bottles because I love this product so much. To be fair, the bottles are quite small so you can finish them up quite quickly but I would happily keep re-purchasing it. However, they are pretty expensive so I wish they would make the bottles bigger.
Along with some other products, this has really helped clear up my skin – I use it every morning and evening and I have really noticed a difference as I don’t get spots as often as before I started using this.

Would I buy again: YES

Sunday Riley Blue Moon Cleanser

I got this cleanser for Christmas a few years ago and I did enjoy using it and it made my skin feel really nice but it is an expensive product and I have used other cleansers that I much prefer that are much cheaper.
This product was definitely a beautiful product to use and was such a luxury – it smelt amazing and felt amazing on the skin but, as I said before, there are cheaper products that I would prefer to use over this.

Would I buy again: PROBABLY NOT

Bioderma Sebium H20

I did really like this product when I was using it but there are products that do a pretty similar thing such as the Garnier Micellar Water and those are cheaper so I would probably choose to buy others over the Bioderma one.

Would I buy again: PROBABLY NOT

La Roche Posay Effeclar Duo 

If you have read some of my other posts such as my Current Skincare Routine and November Favourites the you will know that I love this product!
It has honestly helped clear up my skin so much; since I started using it I have noticed that my skin has been less oily and I haven’t been getting spots as regularly as I used to.
I would 100% recommend this product.

Would I buy again: YES

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish 

I have been using this product for years and I have gone through quite a few bottles of this because I love it. I use this to take my make up off and it is amazing – it takes off all of my make up including (most) waterproof make up.
It is such a natural and gentle product so it never irritates my skin, even if I use it on my eyes.

Would I buy again: YES

Dior Eye Make Up Remover

This make up remover was amazing and took of eye make up really easily but it is a super expensive product and there are other products that I have tried that do a pretty similar job.

Would I buy again: PROBABLY NOT


Zoella Beauty Bath Latte

This is a product that I have already purchased multiple bottles of because I love it so much. This Zoella Beauty product makes the most amazing bubbles and smells incredible!
I love having baths, especially when the weather is colder, and this makes having a bath so lovely and makes me feel super relaxed.

Would I buy again: YES

Zoella Beauty Bath Frosting

I did really enjoy using this product as it made my skin feel super soft after I got out the bath and I love the scent of this Zoella Beauty range but I’m not sure if I would purchase it again.
This is mainly because I prefer bubbles when I have a bath and I just don’t feel like this added too much to my bath so because of that I don’t think I would purchase it again.

Would I buy again: PROBABLY NOT

Aussie Shower Smoothie Body Wash 

This was a really nice product to use and it made my skin feel really nice and clean but shower gels are something I like to switch up and I don’t really use the same one every time.
I would re-purchase it again because it was a lovely product to use but probably not right away because I like to try out lots of different shower gels. 

Would I buy again: MAYBE

Champneys Heavenly Days Bubble Bath 

Similar to shower gels, I like to switch up my bubble baths but I did really like this one as it made really good bubbles and it smelt super relaxing so I probably would purchase it again but I’m probably going to try a few more before going back to this one. 

Would I buy again: MAYBE


Batiste Dry Shampoo x 3

This is the only dry shampoo that I use because it is the only one that I have found that works for me. It is literally a hair saviour for me because it means I can get away with not washing my hair as often. The only downside that I have found with this dry shampoo is that I leaves a white residue but if you make sure to rub it in properly or brush it out then that isn’t an issue.

Would I buy again: YES

Toni & Guy Heat Protection Mist 

I got this heat protector spray a long time ago and I just chose it randomly from the shop because I needed a new one and I did really like using it but there are plenty of others that would do a similar thing. I am not loyal to a particular brand when it comes to heat protectors.

Would I buy again: MAYBE

Aussie Miracle Moist Shampoo & Conditioner

I have used this shampoo and conditioner for years and I keep coming back to it every time I change-up what I use and they are now my shampoo and conditioner of choice.
I just love them because they make my hair feel so nice and clean but also super hydrated – I have quite dry hair, especially on the ends so this really helps to keep my hair strong and hydrated and prevents it from breaking.

Would I buy again: YES



I picked this up after a few people told me that it was really nice so I thought I would give it a try and I ended up liking it. I love it because it is such a gentle body wash that can be used on more sensitive areas of the body and it makes you feel super clean without irritating the skin. I have eczema and sometimes strongly scented body washes can irritate it so when my eczema gets bad I like to use this to help soothe it and help it heal.

Would I buy again: YES

Right Guard Deodorant

This is a deodorant I picked it up when I ran out of my last one at random but I actually really liked it. I love the smell of this and it helps me stay dry and fresh all day which I love.

Would I buy again: YES
