I don't do empties posts too often because I'm actually really bad for leaving products half full and trying new things before I finish the old ones. Lately though, I've been trying to use up products before replacing them, I've not been 100% sticking to it but the thought is there so I'll hopefully have more regular empties posts from now on! If you'd like me to do a full review of any of these products just leave a comment letting me know.

TRESemme Keratin Smooth Heat Defence Spray - I only bought this because it was on offer, which is what I pretty much always do with heat protector sprays. I don't really get too attached to any particular one. If I feel it's protecting my hair then it's fine by me. This one works and it smelled quite nice too which I liked. I can't really comment on any smoothing properties as I don't really have a problem with frizz, but if you're on the lookout for a nice heat protector, I'd recommend this.
Repurchase? Maybe, but as I said, I just pick up whatever's on offer, as long as it's a decent brand!

Garnier Simply Essentials Soothing 2 in 1 Make Up Remover  - I love this. It's so cheap, no more than £3 and often on offer. I got this one in Wilkos for £1.99 and I adore it. I use this before using my Peaches and Clean face wash, it removes every scrap of make up incredibly easily. It removes mascara really well, which is great because I hate when I have to tug at my eyes to get my make up off.
Repurchase? Yes, again and again!

Schwartzkopf Gliss Liquid Silk Leave in Conditioner - This is another one of my favourite products and another super cheap one too. I spray this on wet and dry hair and it makes it so soft and alongside the rest of my hair products, this has definitely improved the condition of my hair. I can't recommend this product enough.
Repurchase? Already have!

Schwartzkopf Gliss Liquid Silk Conditioner - I bought this conditioner because I loved the leave in conditioner so much and hoped it would help my hair as much as the leave in one did. This is a nice conditioner and makes my hair feel lovely and soft, there are conditioners I prefer and would choose over this one, but it's cheap and it does the job.
Repurchase? Maybe, good for when I need a conditioner and am low on money.

Dove Summer Glow Gradual Tan - I haven't actually been keeping up with fake tan as I decided to embrace paleness this winter, but I finished this around Christmas and New year and decided to keep to bottle for an empties post. This is my favourite gradual tan, it gives a nice subtle but buildable colour. This develops overnight so not for those who like instant tan. I like to look natural when I use fake tan and this is perfect for that - no tiger stripes in sight.
Repurchase? Yes.

MAC Hue - This is one of my favourite MAC lipsticks and I was sad to finish this one! I've already bought another one though. I'm sure you've all heard of this as it's such a cult shade, but it's a lovely pinky nude, perfect for every day. It lasts a long time for a light colour too.
Repurchase? Forever!

Murad Energizing Pomegranate Moisturiser - I got this as part of a Murad starter kit along with a foaming cleanser and refining gel for the T-zone. I really liked the cleanser and t-zone gel, but I didn't really think the moisturiser was anything special. I liked it, don't get me wrong, but the full size is around £20+ and I didn't love it enough to justify the price. I prefer my Soap and Glory moisturisers and they're much cheaper.
Repurchase? Probably not.

Bath and Body Works Pink Sugarplum Shower Gel - I received this in a swap with Ariel from and I loved it! It's got the sweetest, girliest scent ever and I was so sad to see this go. I had to finally admit defeat and stop scraping the bottle this month. I so so wish we had bath and body works here in the UK as Ariel has sent me various products and I've loved them all.
Repurchase? If only I could!

Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter - I love the Soap & Glory minis, they're perfect to keep on my bedside table, which is exactly what I did with this. I kept this on my bedside table so I'd never have an excuse not to moisturise at night time. I love all the soap & glory body butters. This one has the classic Soap & Glory scent, which I love and it makes my skin feel super soft and lovely.
Repurchase? Yes

Soap & Glory Glad Hair Day Shampoo - I'd seen mixed reviews of this, so I decided to get a mini version before buying the full size to see what I thought and I really liked it. It makes my hair feel really clean, which I love. I hate when a shampoo leaves a residue and there are no problems of that with this. It also smells amazing and the scent stays on your hair for ages, especially when used with the matching conditioner.
Repurchase? Yes - but in full size!
