Product empties and would I repurchase?

So as women and some men, we go through a lot of products from skincare to hair-care and makeup. I decided to keep a few items that I have used up and do a post about whether they were good or bad and if I would repurchase. Some items I forgot to keep and threw out but I think I will really try to keep them and do a mini series where I post about this every few months.
Image result for garnier micellar waterGarnier Micellar water.  If you have been reading my blog you know I love this stuff. I had the mini version and the large and and ran out of both now a few times and I keep repurchasing. This is so refreshing on the skin and it removes make-up so easily.

Image result for elnett hairspray I bought the mini version for travel. I did use it up quickly as there isn't much in the aerosol. I used to use this years ago and I bought the firm hold version of this. I wasn't really impressed. I think there are way better hairsprays and for a drugstore brand I feel like this is over priced.  This is €9.99 for 400ml. My favorite hairsrpay is Schwarzkopf Silhouette. Image result for black salon hairsprayThis is a 750ml bottle for £10 and you can get this in Sallys. More product for a better price and better quality. I am on the hunt for a good travel size hairspray.  This will not be on my shopping list again.
Image result for max factor masterpiece mascara Max Factor Masterpiece Mascara €14.49. This is hands down the best mascara I have ever used. I have used many mascaras and I have yet to find one better. I have repurchased this so so many times and I will again. FYI. This mascara has one of those plastic wands that I love. Some people don't like those wands so it all depends on personal preference.

Image result for Tantastic I have used this stuff for years. I love it and still love it. I have only ever used the liquid form of this. Tantastic retails for about €21.99 and has a beautiful golden olive colour. This for a long time was my going out tan but lately I have been loving the Bellamianta mousse tan. These are around the same price. I definitely would re purchase this as I have for years.

Image result for maybelline fit me concealer Maybelline Fit me Concealer. What an over hyped product. I have read a heap of blog posts on this concealer and watched loads of reviews online on this concealer and no I don't like it and I wont be repurchasing it. I gave this a fair chance so much so that I used it up. Its supposed to be a dupe for the Nars Radiant concealer.  It creases under the eye alot and you have to dip the product in so many times just to get enough of it out. It doesn't really cover dark circles either.  This retails at €8.99.
Image result for maybelline age rewind concealer Now in my opinion Maybelline got it on the spot with this concealer. The instant age rewind dark circle eraser. This is €11.99. It has a sponge applicator at the top that some people don't like but I love it. This covers it all. Dark circles and has great coverage. This has minimal creasing and it one my favorite drugstore products of all time. I already have another in my back up stock. This will be purchased again.

Image result for moo goo Moo Goo Irritable skin balm. This is €15.00. I did a full blog post on this stuff I love it that much. This helped my psoriasis sooooooo much. This also helped clear up my 2 year old's dry skin on his face. I put this on after every bath he has now and the dry patches have not returned. This is full of natural ingredients and is so safe on the skin. Here is my blog post on this stuff Moo goo.

Image result for Batiste dry shampoo Look I have a love hate with Batiste Dry Shampoo. This is a life saver in those time that you don't have time to wash your hair but it has too look good. I HATE the way it feels in my hair. It nearly feels dirtier in my hair than just the natural oils. Even the one for dark hair leaves a white cast on the hair.  Guess what though I used it up. I have seen things online where it has caused hair loss and damage. I guess people where using the product to replace washing their hair which isn't what this product is intended for, This is to get you out of a jam not to be used for everyday or 4 days in a row. I will repurchase this for those times when I am in a jam. This retails at €4.65 and can be bought almost anywhere.
