Feature Friday: November Empties

So I thought I used up a lot of products in last months empties post but this month I've used up a mountain of products including a lot of my favourite products.

Lush Big Shampoo-
I absolutely love this and it has lasted so long I bought it in the spring and only finished it a couple of weeks ago, you can read my full review of it here (excuse the lack of pictures they got deleted somehow) I do find it can be a little bit drying so I don't use it more than once or twice a week hence why it's lasted so long.
Would I repurchase- I already have.

Soap & Glory Mist You Madly-
I really like the sweet scent of this but I wish it lasted a bit longer on the skin.
Would I repurchase- Yep I've already replaced it.

Herbal Essences Split End Remedy Conditioner-
I did a little review of this in my September favourites, which you can read here, and I still love it obviously it's not the best conditioner in the world but I think it's great value for money.
Would I repurchase- I already have another bottle.

The Body Shop Strawberry Body Polish- 
I bought this quite near the start of the year and have kept it at Pete's which is why it's lasted so long but the tube is pretty huge, I do like this quite a lot and it smells lovely but it doesn't leave my skin feeling as lovely and soft as Soap & Glory's body scrub's do.
Would I repurchase- It's a bit pricey at £10 a tube and I do prefer Soap & Glory's scrubs so I don't think I'll be repurchasing this.

Radox Muscle Soak Bubble Bath-
There is always a bottle of Radox in my empties post because I love my bubble baths and Radox is super cheap.
Would I repurchase- Yep.

Marc Jacobs Lola Shower Gel-
I got this as part of a gift set at Christmas and left it lying in my draws until a few months ago, it smells exactly the same as the perfume but the scent is a little weak and doesn't really last well on the skin but it was quite softening. 
Would I repurchase- No as it was part of a gift set.

Simple Kind To Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser-
This lasted absolutely agessss and unfortunately I really didn't like it but I don't like throwing things away so I used it all up, there is nothing particularly wrong with this but it didn't suit my skin at all for a light moisturiser it was still too heavy for my skin.
Would I repurchase- Nope.

Simple Oil Balancing Exfoliating Wash-
I managed to use this up pretty quickly and I can't say I was impressed, the texture was quite gritty but it didn't feel very scrubby when I was using it and my skin didn't feel all that cleansed after using it. 
Would I repurchase- Definitely not.

The Body Shop Strawberry Body Butter-
This lasted me months and I love the scent but I started to get a little sick of it as it reached near the bottom of the tub and it's definitely more of summer product to me, you can read a review of this here.
Would I repurchase- Yes in the summer.

The Body Shop Chocomania Body Butter-
This scent is much more winter worthy to me it's all warm and cosy, this one didn't last me very long because I love the smell and used it a lot so I'm quite sad that it's finished.
Would I repurchase- yes definitely but I have a few other butters to use first.

Benefit It's Potent Eye Cream Mini-
I love love love this and I've talked about it on here before so I won't waffle on but I reviewed it here if you fancy a read.
Would I repurchase- I may have to treat myself to this when I get paid or maybe I'll ask santa to bring me a pot.

Benefit Moisture Prep Toning Lotion Mini-
I really like this too and it leaves my skin feeling very soft but it is a little pricey compared to my Lush toner and I think they pretty much do the same for my skin.
Would I repurchase- As a treat yes but it won't be joining my routine.

Lush Ocean Salt Cleanser-
This was my favourite cleanser for the spring and summertime but I have found it a little bit harsh on my skin now the weathers turned frosty you can read my full review of it here.
Would I repurchase- I will definitely repurchase this but not until the spring I think.

Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel-
I think most Lush fans will agree that is one of the best Christmas products and this one was actually from last year as I was saving it for the winter, the scent is amazing and it leaves my skin really soft and sweet smelling.
Would I repurchase-I already have and I will be stocking up before they disappear.

Lush Aqua Miribalis Body Butter-
I loved this so much it was way better than King Of Skin and the smell is incredible, it lasted well and was the perfect mix between a butter and a scrub I literally cannot fault it.
Would I repurchase- Yes definitely but I want to try You Snap The Whip first and I have a Sandy Santa Scrub to use too.

Soap & Glory Flake Away Travel Size-
I loved Scrub 'Em And Leave 'Em and didn't think I would find a better scrub but this is fantastic, the first couple of times I used it I wasn't too fussed by it but the more I've used it the more I loved it, it is sooooo moisturuising and my skin feels fantastic after a shower with this.
Would I repurchase- I've already started on my second pot and I will definitely buy a full size in the future.
