BEAUTY EMPTIES | WHAT I WOULD & WOULDN'T REPURCHASE




Sooooo this is the first blog post I have written in AGES and it feels so good good to be back doing what I love. I am really sorry about my lack of content but life was just crazy busy but I am back!! This post is all about products that I have pretty much completely used up and what I thought of them. 

Catwalk HQ Tan Eraser
I have chatted about this product on here before about how much I loved it and nothing has changed. It is AMAZING!! I'll be honest and admit I was the biggest skeptic going and did not expect it to work but it definitely does. My favourite way to use it is to apply it generously all over, leave it ten minutes, give it a rub with wet exfoliation gloves and then get into the shower and give it another rub and it will just glide off. There is other tan removers on the market and I have tried a few of them but I find the Catwalk HQ works most effectively and leaves the skin so silky smooth. I would definitely repurchase it.


NOTE Cosmetics Long Lash Mascara
I don't think I have ever fully used a mascara before but I used this one until there wasn't a bit of it left. It was deadly and only cost about €9.00. Strictly speaking you are better off buying a budget mascara because they are supposed to be changed every few months and I highly recommend this one. One big thing that stuck out for me was that it never transferred to the skin underneath my eyes like so many products do. This I would pick up again and I have been meaning to ever though I have many other mascaras. 

Nivea Double Effect Eye Makeup Remover
This is a really, REALLY good eye makeup remover, like seriously good. I have always been careful with the skin around my eyes but the older I get I'm even more aware of minding it. I pop a small amount of this onto a cotton circle and hold it over a closed eye for about 30-40 seconds and gently wipe and it removes the makeup so effortlessly. You may notice in the picture above that their is actually product left and it's not empty as the titles suggests but that's because this is my new one. I never run out of this and always have a back up one. 


He-shi Rapid 1 Hour Liquid Tan
I have always loved He-shi tan and in the past I have used it in salons to do professional spray tans and it is so, so beautiful however I didn't really get on with the liquid tan and I'll explain why. While it gave me a gorgeous colour and it faded nicely I just found the application a little finicky and awkward for me. I'm usually applying my tan really late at night after a full day of work and mammy duties and I'm usually half asleep. With a mousse tan their is more control and it's easier to get each area the same but the liquid makes it a little tricky for me. I won't be repurchasing the He-shi Rapid 1 Hour Liquid Tan but I will absolutely be picking up their mousse version. 


La Roche Posay Toleraine Teint Fluid Corrective Foundation
This is a foundation that I feel gets bypassed a lot by people because it doesn't have overly fancy packaging but it is actually really good. It has excellent coverage and good longevity and I really enjoyed using it. I will possibly buy it again but I wouldn't lose sleep over not having it either because I have an outrageous amount of foundations. 


Revolution Pro Fix Illuminating Fixing Spray
All I can say about this product was that it was grand. It won't be replacing my NYX Cosmetics fixing spray and certainly won't be taking the top spot off of Urban Decay All Nighter but it was grand. I didn't feel like it gave my makeup much extra longevity and I also didn't feel illuminated. I expected it to give my skin a glow but I can't say I noticed one. I probably won't give this one a go again but I'm open to trying other Revolution sprays that might suit my oily skin better.


NIP+FAB Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads
Soooo spoiler alert I have already repurchased these because I love them!! They just give your skin such a thorough cleanse and such a little lift. I've always been a toner advocate and part of me still is but I am really enjoying these as a substitute at the moment. 


I would LOVE to know what products you guys would and wouldn't repurchase and what ye just couldn't be without. Thank you all so much for reading this post. I will start collecting more empty products for a part two!!

Chat soon
