This is the first time I've featured this series on my blog, but I do really enjoy reading other peoples versions, seeing what they've used up and whether they would repurchase them. So let's get straight to what I've been using lately.

Empties #1 | The Beauty is a Beast

Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate

I received this sample in my Feel Unique Pick N Mix and I used up the whole sample pretty fast once I embraced it into my makeup routine. It smells amazing and is really good for preventing foundation looking cakey or overly matte.
Would I repurchase: Yes - I've already bought  a full-size product

Empties #1 | The Beauty is a Beast

Seacret Makeup Remover Wipes
This was one of the items in a monthly subscription box. However, I found that the packet was quite dry by the time I reached the bottom of the pack.They are quite good for removing stubborn makeup but could feel a little bit rough at time.
Would I repurchase: No - there are other wipes I like better

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Wipes
I did quite enjoy these wipes for removing makeup, although I always did have to double cleanse. I really enjoy trying out new makeup remover and I much preferred these to the oil versions.
Would I repurchase: Not right now

Empties #1 | The Beauty is a Beast

Milani 2 in 1 Foundation in Warm Beige
I don't know how many ways I can say I love this foundation. It's super full coverage and doesn't go cakey throughout the day. Before I used it up, I wore this on a daily basis and I have nothing but positive comments to say about it. 
Would I repurchase: Yes, Yes, 100x Yes!

LA Girl Pro Coverage Foundation
This foundation shade is absolutely perfect for when I was fake tanned, the formula of the foundation is a little wet, so it did need set down otherwise, you'd be looking very oily. I found the foundation to be short lasting so I could only get about 4/5 hours out of it before it started to wear away but I did love the way it sat on my skin and didn't emphasise my pores!
Would I repurchase: Yes

Empties #1 | The Beauty is a Beast

Philip Kingsley Daily Damage Defence Extreme
I'm sure I've mentioned it on my blog multiple times but this is my favourite heat protection spray. I've purchased this god knows how many times and I can't imagine a time where I wouldn't repurchase this. I find it never makes my hair greasy, it's great for protecting my hair and leaves it smelling lovely.
Would I repurchase: Always

Empties #1 | The Beauty is a Beast

Soap and Glory All Day Super Moisture Marvel
Another product I've raved about many times on my blog is the Soap and Glory moisturiser. I think this is like my third tube that I've purchased and I'm still in love with it. I find it so easy to chuck on in the morning before I apply my makeup and I've never had any problems with products not working well with this as a base.
Would I repurchase: Already have

Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara
I've had this mascara for the longest time but I swear it's like impossible to finish a mascara. By the end, this had all dried up and was impossible to apply. I loved the wand of this Rimmel mascara, but it didn't do anything spectacular to my lashes to make me want to repurchase it. I have a lot of other drugstore mascaras that I've found work much better for my lashes.
Would I repurchase: No

Which products have you recently used up?


  1. I’ve always wanted to try the LA Girl foundation, and the Kiehls Reviving Concentrate sounds incredible! I think I might have to pick them both up x

  2. I really want to try that Milani foundation, I've heard such great things about it x

  3. The Keihls product sounds really nice I really want to try some products from them! I’ve also been really undecided on whether to try the Milani foundation as I’ve read a couple of mixed reviews but I don’t know how to work out my shade at all��
