The difference between a good product and a great one, all comes down to whether you'd repurchase it.

It’s been almost a year since my last empties post (catch my previous one HERE), so I thought it was high time for part 2.  As I said in the last one, I always like these posts because when a beauty fanatic uses every drop of a product, it has to be a good one.  However, the difference between a good product and a great one, all comes down to whether you’d repurchase it.

Without a shadow of a doubt, these are all good products but if you want to know if they’re great, read on:

High Definition – Squeaky Clean

I REALLY enjoyed using this product.  I would go as far as to say it’s the best micellar water I’ve tried and I’ve trialled plenty of different ones.  It’s really cooling and refreshing on the skin.  However, at £10.50 a bottle it’s very pricey and I’m not sure it’s worth three times the price of the drugstore alternatives.

Would I repurchase?  Purely down to price, I’m on the fence about this one.

Rita Hazan – True Color Shampoo

Shampoo is one of those products I chop and change a lot.  I’ve never found one that has been a game changer but this came pretty close.  The first thing I love about it is the scent, it smells exactly like Chanel Exclusive’s, Gardenia, fragrance.  Secondly, if you have coloured hair this is great, as it majorly prevents frizzing and dry ends.  Sadly, at £21 a bottle, it’s not cheap.

Would I repurchase? Despite the hefty price tag, yes. Although I’ll be using it sparingly to make it last as long as possible!

Becca – Backlight Priming Filter

If you want a product which highlights or illuminates your skin, Becca should always be your first port of call.  This stuff is beautiful under foundation or tinted moisturiser.  It gives a great glow without being OTT or too sparkly.  However, I found on its own it wasn’t sufficient as a primer as it didn’t tackle evening out the skin or minimizing pores, so I’d pair it over Benefit’s Porefessional.

Would I repurchase it? Although it illuminated beautifully, I wouldn’t repurchase, as there are so many other amazing primers I still want to try.

Philip Kingsley – One More Day

I’m the queen of dry shampoo as I go through cans and cans of the stuff!  Although this was good and didn’t leave too much residue in my hair, I didn’t feel it was a standout product.  At £16, I personally don’t think it’s worth the money.  I’m still 100% loyal to Batiste.

Would I repurchase it? Nope

Perricone MD – Hydrating Cloud Cream

My skin is the best it has ever been and a lot of that is down to the Hydrating Cloud Cream.  My skin really agrees with it and I’m a huge fan!  It’s sinks into the skin, is gentle and keeps my skin sufficiently hydrated throughout the day.  Although I imagine in the winter months when my skin is drier, this might not provide a sufficient amount of moisture.

Would I repurchase it? 100%, in fact I have already!

Sunday Riley – Good Genes

This is my second bottle of Good Genes, so technically it was already a repurchase! I still love this as much the second time around, as the first.  I’ve done a full review HERE where you read all about the positive results this had on my skin.  Despite being eye wateringly expensive at £85, it’s worth every penny.

Would I repurchase it? Again, and again

Clinique – Dark Spot Corrector

I purchased this based on the rave reviews it had.  Also, I’d used the pore refining solution previously and absolutely loved it.  I was told this had the same results as the pore solution but it also targeted age spots and traces of blemishes.  I loved the consistency and how it melted into the skin but as someone that doesn’t suffer majorly from dark spots or pigmentation I probably wasn’t the ideal candidate for it.

Would I repurchase?  No, as the areas it targets are not relevant to me but I would highly recommend to anyone who suffers from dark spots.
