This is my first 'Empties' post in what will become a series, where I will briefly review products that I have recently finished. These are all the products that I have recently used up....

Johnson's 24 hour moisture radiance hand cream
- A fantastic hand cream. It really makes a difference to my chapped hands. The butter smell is gorgeous and feels like it really works. It sinks in quickly and is not greasy at all (full review here). Repurchase? Yes definitely, it's a total bargain!  

Aussie Mega Shampoo
- I bought this shampoo for two reasons: one because I loved the smell (and it lasts in your hair all day too which is nice) and two because it sounded like it would give my hair a thorough clean, removing all trace of products. It really does make my hair feel very clean. My only criticism would be that it looks/ feels almost too clean- which isn't necessarily a bad thing for a lot of people! (Full review here). Repurchase? Yes probably.

Clarins Self Tanning Milk
- My favourite ever fake tan and the only one to not leave any streaks (although I always apply it with a mit). Full review here. Repurchase? Yes definitely, this is not my first bottle and it certainly won't be my last!

Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser
- This is the first time I've used this cleanser and it's lasted me absolutely ages- especially considering I use it every day. It has tamarind beads in it which makes it slightly exfoliating and so really cleans your pores. I've got oily/ combination skin and it's worked really well for it (full review here). Repurchase? Yes, most probably.

Benefit They're Real Mascara
- This mascara certainly makes a big impact. I love the effect that it creates and think it is well worth the hype (full review here). My only concern is that it did run out quite quickly- sooner than I expected. Repurchase? Yes, I have done already, but not sure if I will be able to afford to keep doing so if it runs out every month! 

No. 7 Brown Eyeliner
- Another trusy product that I have been buying for years. They never run or smudge and stay on all day (full review here). The brown is a perfect colour for my eyes and I always wear it during the day as it's not too heavy. Repurchase? Yes, will keep buying the No 7 eyeliners for a long time I think!

Benefit That Gal Primer
- My mini sample of this primer has finally come to an end. It has lasted an impressive amount of time considering how small the bottle is! I love it, it has kept my makeup looking fresh all day and staying put, combating the shine that comes with oily skin (full review here). Repurchase? Yes, definitely!

Mitchum Deodrant
- I've been using this deodrant for years and will continue to do so. Unlike spray deodrants that I've tried it completely stops me sweating/ smelling and never leaves any yellow stains on my clothes. Repurchase? Yes, definitely.

Clarins Exfoliating Mask
-This is without a doubt the best face mask or exfoliator I've ever tried! It's only a sample size but I got quite a few uses out of it. It made my face really bright and fresh after using it, and gave it a thorough clean (full review here). Repurchase? Yes I will definitely be buying the full size version!

That's it! Has anyone else tried any of these products? What did you think?

  4. I love the smell of Aussie shampoo too - amazing! Feels great in my hair too though. I'm always looking out for special offers, so I can stock up on it! :) x

  5. I'm not a fan of the Benefit They're Real mascara. After all the hype, I was expecting miracles, so maybe my expectations were set too high! haha
