Summer Beauty Empties: Repurchase or Not

The last couple of months have felt very surreal with lockdown but it has been a brilliant excuse to play around with beauty products and finally use up products. I have quite a mix of beauty products and one lifestyle empty (that somehow snuck in there). I also let you know if I will be repurchasing these products or not.


Starting off with skincare and surprisingly I was coming to the end of quite a few of my trusty favourites. Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel has featured a lot on my blog and for good reason, I just love it. I think the formulation is fantastic and it’s brilliant at cleansing your skin without stripping it of moisture. The Caudalie Vinopure Blemish Control Infused Serum has also become a must-have in my skincare routine too. It’s the only serum that helps keep my hormonal breakouts (especially during pregnancy) under control and help them heal quickly. I always now always have a back up of this product, that’s how much I love it. On the moisturiser front, I’ve already gotten through three full-size pots of the Sunday Riley Tidal Cream as my skin just loves it. It’s expensive but worth every penny and you only need a tiny amount so lasts ages.

I don’t tend to stick to the same lip balm brand, I like trying out new ones. Having said that I have been using Fresh Lip Treatments for a while. I really like that they have so many tinted Lip Treatments to choose from and they keep you lips hydrated for a surprisingly long time

Hair & Body

I swear finding a shampoo that my hair loves is so hard, so once I discovered Love beauty Love Planet Volume and Bounce Shampoo I stocked up. If you have fine hair that can become greasy at the roots on day 2 then give this shampoo a go. It so light in texture and my hair now lasts three days without needing a wash, which has never happened. I also love a great smelling Shower Gel and The Body Shop never fails. I tend to buy whatever body wash is on offer in the supermarket but sometimes it’s nice to treat yourself.

Hair wise hairspray literally lasts me years, as I only use it when I curl my hair, which is once in a blue moon recently. I’m really picky when it comes to hairspray as I hate it when your hair feels crunchy and stiff. The Tresemme Make Waves Creation Hairspray is a dream when you want curly hair that lasts all day without the crunchy texture. It’s such a fine mist but makes your curls last all day.

Nails & Pillow Spray

I’ve always painted my nails at home and done at home manicures and it’s all thanks to this amazing top coat, Nails Inc Kensington Caviar 45 Seconds Top Coat. This topcoat is touch dry within 45 seconds, which makes doing your nails in a rush a breeze. It also makes your nail polish last long and has a gorgeous glossy finish.

My last empties is a lifestyle product that everyone needs on their bedside table. This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray is the one product that is guaranteed to give me an amazing nights sleep, it’s literally heaven in a bottle. I have this is travel sizes too so I can take it away with me.

Would I repurchase

Nails Inc Kensington Caviar 45 Seconds Top Coat – Already have

This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray – Yes

It’s clear to see I have used up a lot of products that I love so might need to make an online order to repurchase them.
