Empties #2.

Hi there, It's time for another empties post :) 

But first I thought I would update you with what's been going on for me lately. Like many of you I'm sure, I got a GCSE result yesterday,I'm just going into year 11 so I've only finished one GCSE, which was science, and I got an A! I was relieved more than anything, but obviously happy as well, it's nice to know that hard work does pay off! 

Afterwards me and my family went for afternoon tea at Fawsley hall which was beyond lovely. My mum had a voucher for it from one of her friends for her birthday so it was lovely that we could all benefit! (outfit post coming soon!) 
Other than that I'm just trying to get organised for the new school year which is starting to creep up on me. The joy. If anyone knows a good place to buy school shoes, please do let me know, because I literally tried on every pair in Clarks and none fitted, I am starting to panic! I also had a really lovely holiday in Scotland, really just relaxing and catching up with friends and family :)  

Now, onto the empties! The majority of these things are from last month, and I'd had all them them quite a while; I always seem to finish things at the same time!

First up is a shampoo. All of my family use this and we all love it! I wash my hair every other day and this shampoo always leaves it feeling clean and nourished. I have quite fine hair which is what this is specifically aimed at, and I find it doesn't weigh my hair down which is perfect because I cannot stand that! I'm not sure it makes my hair particularly shiny, but that doesn't really bother me. 

Would I repurchase it? I already have!

I bought this base coat with one of those `three pounds off` vouchers that they often have in Boots for No7, and I'm pretty sad it's finished. I used this as a base and top coat most of the time and it gave a really smooth, gel like finish, which is of course desirable! I would definitely recommend it :) 

Would I repurchase it? Well next time there's on offer on, guess what i'll be making a bee-line for... 

Next up is a product I featured in my June favourites post and I finished it pretty soon after writing it! This mask really does nourish the hair and leaves it feeling so soft afterwards, just what a hair mask should do! 

Would I repurchase it? Yep :)

Ah, the Lush sweetie pie shower gel, I'm telling you, you have to smell this! As with all Lush products, it has an element for fun and is slightly gimmicky, but what's wrong with that? I actually gave one of these away in my recently, so I hope  Brittany likes it as much as I did! 

Would I repurchase it? Although I did like it, I rarely buy a bath/ shower products again (I like to try new things!) so probably not. 

This face wash is a bit of a classic for me; it was the first one I ever bought and I've got through my fare share of bottles, the simple reason being its good at its job. I know that it agrees with my skin (it's never caused me to break out,) and it smells divine and its a pretty pink colour :) 

Would I repurchase it? Without a doubt, but I'm happily using another face wash right now, so in a bit!

This was the deodorant I kept in my school bag in the last term or so. I love the scent and it's a compressed can so it takes up less room and makes it so cute! 

Would I repurchase it? Sure, see what I did there ;)

This is another part of my skincare routine (see all of it in this post!) I like to sweep this all over my face, targeting particularly blemish prone areas. I always leaves my skin feeling really clean and has a sort of hospital-y smell (?!) that i actually really like. Weird.  

Would I repurchase it? Yes, I need to! 

This is possibly the least exciting empty thing ever; nail polish remover *yay* I get through nail varnish remover like nobodies business, and this one did the job fine. 

Would I repurchase it? Yeah, this is a thing I'm not fussy about! 

Now this is a product that I really liked, this body wash had little red dotty things in it that when you rubbed into your skin, sort of popped and had tiny bits of glitter in them. Now thats my sort of shower gel. This has the classic Sanctuary product smell which is heavenly and leaves the skin super soft. 

Would I repurchase it? Like I said with the Lush shower gel, I like to try new things! So maybe, but not immediately. 

Another thing I seem to use up like there's no tomorrow is eye makeup remover. I wasn't actually a massive fan of this one; it took quite a lot of effort (and product) to fully remove everything which is not ideal when I'm wanting to jump into bed! It did have a nice smell though :)

Would I repurchase it? Well I have since gone back to my faithful Simple makeup remover, so I'm guessing you already know the answer ^. 

Lastly, a staple in the old routine, the Primark 4 in 1 face wipes. I always have a pack of some sort of face wipes handy, and these ones are such a bargain I always try to pick some up when I venture into Primark.  

Would I repurchase it? Always! 

What have you used up lately? If you got your GCSE results/result then I hope you got what you wanted as well!
