June/July Empties

I like these empties post because it gives you a chance to see products that have actually been used not just bought, swatched and thrown in a drawer. I don't get through enough products to do one a month but I've actually finished quite a few things across the past two. I've used up a real mixture of products and I thought I'd share with you what they are and most importantly whether their worth spending money on.

I had this nail varnish remover for months. I bought it from Superdrug as an impulse buy when my other nail varnish remover ran out. It's one of those own brand, cheap nail varnish removers that do the job.
Would I repurchase? Yes, and I actually already have. For £1.09 it's a good nail varnish remover, it does what it's meant to do. I'm not going to spend a fortune, i.e £4.99 on a "magic" nail varnish remover pot.


I bought this Time Delay moisturiser with one of those £5 off vouchers you get in Boots so it only cost about £2. It's a handy little moisturiser and works quite well. However, I can't say it was much of a 'radiance booster' as it claims to be. I made sure I got every last bit out of it by cutting it open. 

Would I repurchase? If I had a Boots voucher I probably would.

I got the Maybelline 24hr Super Stay foundation while searching for a medium coverage, long lasting foundation. It definitely was a medium coverage, but 24hour? I highly doubt it. I never left it on that long but some days it struggled to even reach 9 hours. I also think I had the wrong colour as it was a bit orange.

Would I repurchase? Perhaps. I prefer Maybelline's Dream Satin Liquid foundation but I would probably give this another go if it was on offer, and in a different shade. £9.19 is too much to spend when there is similar/better foundations available.

TRESemme Heat Defence Spray £4.69 (300ml)
I think this was one of the first heat protection sprays available in Superdrug, and didn't cost too much so I tried it out. It smells nice and the spray distributes quite well.

Would I repurchase? Probably. I'm not too picky when it comes to heat protection sprays and this isn't too expensive.

John Frieda Frizz-Ease 3 Day Straight £6.99 (100ml)
This was one of those cult products that I just had to try. Luckily I bought it when it was 3 for 2 because it costs £6.99 for a rather small bottle. My hair is quite straight so I'm not sure why I thought this would work well. In actual fact it didn't really do that much. It would probably be better for someone who has curly hair and is a slave to their straighteners.

Would I repurchase? I highly doubt it. This is expensive and doesn't really work wonders on my hair.


Blistex Relief Cream £2.24
Blistex Relief Cream is fantastic for sore chapped lips. It's strong stuff and works so well. I also like the minty fresh smell and slightly tingly feeling.


Would I repurchase? Yes. I think this is going to be one of those products that I'll buy forever.

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer £4.19 
Standard Blogger concealer: Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer. It's all been said before. It works wonders and cost £4.19 in Boots. It's a shame the writing all comes off but that doesn't affect how well it works.


Would I repurchase? Obviously. It's such a good concealer, made even better by the price. In fact, I've already got a back up.
I think I bought this Max Factor False Lash Effect mascara when it was on offer in Superdrug because it normally comes in black packaging. I've also had this mascara far longer than I should have but it lasted ages and even when it began to dry out it still did quite a good job.

Would I repurchase? Yes I probably would, however it's not often that I repurchase mascaras as there is so many new ones frequently launching.
