I know I have been a bad blogger lately but I’m trying to keep up with university work and reading so I think I can be excused! Lately I have been on a mission to use up as many products as I can rather than just going out and buying others instead which I’ve been getting in the habit of doing (bad me!). So here are some that I have used up and whether I would repurchase them or not.


Aussie Miracle Moist Shampoo – I bought this shampoo after reading so many great reviews from bloggers and since my hair has been getting very dry I thought why not give it a go and hope for the best. I’m pleased to say that the shampoo did bring new life to my dry and damaged hair although it didn’t come out as soft and shiny as I’d hoped. It does smell gorgeous though.
Would I repurchase? – I’m still on the hunt for a shampoo that gives me the shiny and smooth hair that I’ve been craving for the past few months, so probably not.

Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation – Another product that received a lot of praise through reviews, this foundation does give quite good coverage on application. However I found it to fade quite a lot during the day, obviously not living up to the ’25 hour’ selling point, for me at least. Maybe I just didn’t apply enough, I don’t know. All I know is that I hate to cake myself in foundation so there was a limit as to how much I ever put on my face without it coming out in a million dry patches.
Would I repurchase? – In a word, no. I was good and made myself use it all before moving on to my beloved Dream Matte Mousse from Maybelline, but now I wouldn’t look back at it.

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor Deep Conditioner – I really liked this conditioner because it has helped tame my split ends and added some more moisture to my dry hair. I use a pea sized amount of this conditioner every few days when I wash my hair in the shower and leave for the full 3 minutes before rinsing out. As with all the Aussie products I have used, it had a lovely smell which was still there hours after washing my hair.
Would I repurchase? – Yes, but I’ll probably try a few other deep conditioners before then.

Soap & Glory Clean on Me Shower Gel – Probably my favourite S&G product of them all, their shower gel smells beautiful and goes a very long way. Simply put, my showers wouldn’t be the same without it and now I refuse to use any other shower gel. This was my second bottle of it and I would definitely say that the large pump action bottles definitely last a very long time which is great.
Would I repurchase? I already have!

Batiste Dry Shampoo – Readers of my blog will probably already know how much I adore dry shampoo as it is so handy and easy to keep your hair looking clean and fresh on those off days when you just don’t want to go through the hassle of washing and blow drying (especially with long hair like mine). I have been through so many cans of it already and just thought I would include it as I can’t be without my dry shampoo.
Would I repurchase? – Always! I’ll probably branch out and try some of the other scents as well.
