some recent empties that I've repurchased

*This post contains gifted items and affiliate links*


Since I've not really been leaving the house a lot lately, I've obviously not needed a lot of make-up but with things slowly opening up again I thought it was time to have a lil update of some of the products that I use a lot that had come to the end of their lives so I'm not caught out when I get invited out somewhere and find out I've got no foundation left! I tend to be a bit of a creature of habit when it comes to beauty items and so repurchasing faves is a bit of a recurring thing for me. I recently did a Cult Beauty order to stock up on some things that I'd recently finished or was coming to the end of and I also did a Glossier order recently too so I thought it would be fun to share a few of the things with you.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

I use mascaras to death so I always forget just how good they are when they're new. I originally purchased a mini version of the mascara from TK Maxx last year and was so obsessed with it that I bought a full-sized one too! This is my third time buying this mascara and although it's a little pricey at £22 I definitely think it's worth it. I've tried using other mascaras since and nothing compares!

HUM Nutrition Glow Sweet Glow

I was originally gifted two bottles of these gummies but after using them for two months I decided to buy a bottle for myself. These are vegan tangerine flavoured gummies with Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and hyaluronic acid to improve collagen production and give you a healthy glow. Since I've started using these, I've definitely seen improvements in my skin but they are a little on the expensive side at £27.25 a bottle which will last you a month. I'm not sure if I'll continue to use these after this month but I'm definitely willing to stick at them for now!

Benefit Gimme Brow

This one is technically not an empty repurchase since I've recently been using Glossier 'Boy Brow'. I so much prefer this Benefit one though, that when it came time to replace my brow gel I knew I wanted to revert back to the old tried and tested Gimme Brow. I'm obsessed with this product. I use the lightest shade with me being blonde and everything and it honestly does wonders for my brows. It's just like your brows but better! This one is more expensive than the Glossier one at £22.50 but with how much I prefer this one I'm more than willing to pay it!

Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser

I'm a tad Glossier obsessed but I didn't actually start using their products until last summer. I did a post on my first experiences here if you're interested. Every time I wash my face with this I'm still obsessed with how clean and fresh my skin feels even after over eight months. You can use it on dry skin to remove your makeup and then on wet skin to cleanse and refresh. I'm sure there are alternatives out there but I'm a firm believer in sticking with something you like and so when my original bottle of this started to run out I was straight back on glossier dot com to repurchase! It costs £15 but lasts for a good length of time and you can also bundle it but I'll get into that later!

The Ordinary Foundation

This foundation is EVERYTHING! I like to alternate between this foundation from The Ordinary and Too Faced Born This Way (which I used in this post). The Ordinary are probably better known for their skincare but I've actually never used any of their skin products but I am however OBSESSED with their foundation. For starters this foundation literally cost £5.90 - that's cheaper than most drugstore foundations and it is, in my opinion, so much better! I did a whole review on it here if you want more detailed thoughts.

Glossier Priming Moisturiser

And back we go to Glossier. As I mentioned with the Milky Jelly Cleanser, Glossier allows you to create bundles and since I was replacing my cleanser I also felt like I should get ahead of the curve and also replace my moisturiser which was also running on the empty side. This product costs £18 to buy on its own but I like to purchase the 3-Step Skincare Routine* bundle for £35 which also includes a £10 Balm Dot Com lip salve that I've been making use out of as gifts since my Birthday Balm Dot Com is still going strong!
So that's everything that I've repurchased recently! What are some of your favourite products that you keep repurchasing again and again - let me know some of your favourites because I'm always on the lookout for some new products to try!
