SpectriMist Sanitising Mist (PR, available HERE for £15.99) - This mist is can be used to sanitise both skin and surfaces. I've been using it to keep my LED masks clean. It's gentle enough that it doesn't damage the rubber on them. I use the mist on my mask after each use.
Marks out of 10: 10/10
Would I repurchase? Yes. Luckily I've been sent another one in PR.

Nursem Caring Hand Cream (PR, available HERE for £10) - I'm really fussy with hand creams - I can't stand ones that leave my hands feeling greasy. This one isn't greasy at all! It actually almost sets down to a matte finish. It's really hydrating and nourishing - perfect if your hand are really dry.

Would I repurchase? Yes.

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops (bought myself, available HERE for £31) - You can read my original review of this HERE but to recap - this is a beautiful multi-use product. It can be used either as a serum or a primer / no makeup base. I've used it as both and it works brilliantly either way. It's a thick, hydrating serum with the most gorgeous dewy, glowy finish. It leaves skin looking incredible! It's not glittery at all.

Would I repurchase? Yes.

Elemis Neroli Blossom Hand and Nail Balm (bought myself, not available at the moment) - I adore the scent of this! The cream itself is really nourishing but I bit heavy / greasy for my taste.
Marks out of 10: 7/10
Would I repurchase? If it was part of a set like this one was, yes but on it's own no.

Aromatica Orange Cleansing Sherbet (PR, available HERE for £23 but you can save 15% using my code TORIA15) - I adore this cleansing balm! It's so soft and melts beautifully. It quickly removes makeup and SPF. It rinses clean easily too. Plus it smells incredible - of sweet orange!
Marks out of 10: 9/10
Do I recommend it? Yes.

Beigic Refreshing Hand Wash (PR, available HERE for £28 but you can save 15% using my code TORIA15) - A beautiful, creamy gel hand wash with such an uplifting scent! It left my hands really soft.
Marks out of 10: 9/10
Would I repurchase? Yes.

Beigic Refreshing Hand Wash


Beigic Refining Hand Wash (PR, available HERE with my discount) - This has the same gorgeous scent as the Refreshing hand wash. This one is different as it contains physical exfoliation to leave hand soft and smooth. I liked it but I found the physical exfoliation a bit much if I used it too often. I'd say it's more of an occasional hand wash, rather that one used numerous times a day.
Marks out of 10: 6/10
Would I repurchase? No.

Clarins Velvet Cleansing Milk (bought myself, available HERE for £24) - This is such a lovely, comforting cleanser. It's a lotion with a traditional "creamy" scent, that I love. It's incredibly gentle and leaves skin really hydrated and soft.
Marks out of 10: 9/10
Would I repurchase? Yes.

Dr. Levy Booster Serum (PR, available HERE for £280) - A beautiful, hydrating serum that contains a stem cell complex that helps boost collagen and reduce lines and wrinkles. It's a pricey serum but it works! It's such a luxurious formula that's a treat to use.
Marks out of 10: 8/10
Would I repurchase? No as it's out of my price range.

Zoetic CBD Hand Cream (PR, available HERE for £25 but you can save 30% using my code victoria30) - I'm really fussy with hand creams but this one is a winner! It's nourishing and hydrating without being too rich or leaving your hands feeling greasy. Plus it smells of lemongrass which I adore! It's such an uplifting scent.
Marks out of 10: 9/10
Would I repurchase? Yes.

Mitchum Shower Fresh Anti-Perspirant (bought myself, available HERE for £3) - I usually use the cream version of this deodorant but it was out of stock so I ended up with the traditional roll on version instead. I actually prefer it! I felt like it was more effective and it lasted loads longer too so is better value. I'll be buying this version from now on.

Would I repurchase? Yes.

Wild Nutrition KSM-66 Ashwagandha Plus supplements (bought myself, available HERE for £20.50) - This is my second bottle / months worth of these supplements now. I've not replaced them as I wanted to see if I noticed a difference not taking them. I did find that they helped me chill out and sleep a bit better but I don't feel like it was enough for me to repurchase. That being said, I don't really have sleeping issues. I think that they'd be worth taking if you do have sleeping issues though.
Marks out of 10: 7/10
Would I repurchase? Not at the moment but if I ever have trouble sleeping, then yes.

Medik8 Surface Radiance Cleanse (PR, available HERE for £19) - This is one of my favourite exfoliating cleansers. It's a thick fruity smelling jelly that exfoliates skin and keep pores clear thanks to a combination of AHA and BHA acids. It's gentle enough to be used daily (for me anyway). 
Marks out of 10: 10/10
Would I repurchase? Yes.

Wild Nutrition Food-Grown Endo Complex supplements (bought myself, available HERE for £35) - I've been taking these for months now and have them on subscription so I don't run out. It's a specific mix of ingredients to help with Endometriosis, including balancing hormone production, calming inflammation and helping reduce fatigue.

Would I repurchase? Yes.

Medik8 Crystal Retinal 10 serum (bought myself, available HERE for £79) - This is my holy grail Vitamin A serum. It's fantastic to help keep my acne / spots under control as well as reducing fine lines and wrinkles. It keeps my skin clear, bright and even. It's a gorgeous cream texture that feels hydrating and nourishing. Plus it smells of tonka bean which I love!
Marks out of 10: 10/10
Would I repurchase? Always! I've got another tube ready to open.

Beauty Pie Efficient C Vitamin C supplement (bought myself, available HERE for £14.09 for Beauty Pie members) - I've been taking this Vitamin C supplement for a few months now. You mix a teaspoon worth of it with water to take it. This type of Vitamin C is meant to be the best as your body absorbs it more effectively. Other similar brands are double the price, so this is great value. 
Marks out of 10: 10/10
Would I repurchase? Yes, I already have.

Luneia Radiance Ritual (PR, available HERE for £40) - Literally the best exfoliating mask I've ever tried! You can read my original review HERE but to recap - it's a thick balm like texture that's so nourishing and hydrating which works brilliantly alongside the acid exfoliation. It leaves skin so soft, smooth and glowing. Incredible stuff.

Would I repurchase? Yes.

Ultra Violette Queen Screen SPF 50+ (PR, available HERE for £36 for full sized) - I've got a full sized bottle of this open but has to finish up this mini bottle as it has been open a while. It was a perfect size to take with me when I went away. This is a wonderful SPF, one of my favourites! It's a really emollient serum consistency that gives skin the most amazing dewy finish.

Marks out of 10: 10/10
Would I repurchase? Yes, I've got a full size bottle open and a back up for when that runs out!

Dior Backstage Face and Body Foundation (bought myself, available HERE for £30) - This isn't an empty, there's probably about half left. It looks full in the photo as I'd shaken in up as the foundation had separated. I've had this over two years now so it's past its best hence me getting rid. It's a fantastic foundation - it's lightweight on the skin, light-medium buildable coverage with a natural skin like finish. It's pretty longwearing too - even on my oily skin. I just don't really use foundation any more, as I prefer tinted moisturisers.

Would I repurchase? Yes.

Entwine Radiant Skin Treatment (PR, available HERE for £25 for 6 vials - 2 of each) - This is part of Entwine's collaboration with @officialnathalieuk. It's a three step treatment that gives you a mini-facial at home. I was really impressed with how mu skin looked after using it. My skin was so smooth and glowy. I was able to get 3 uses out of each vial.

Solgar Vitamin D3 supplements (bought myself, available HERE for £8.79) - These are my go-to Vitamin D supplements. They're high strength and easy to swallow.

Indeed Labs in-circadian Night Mask (PR, available HERE for £24.99) - This is such a gorgeous overnight mask. It's a thick balm like texture that feels like it forms a protective layer on the skin. It's super hydrating. Every morning after using this, my skin is super soft and plump.

Would I repurchase? Yes.

Flamingo razors (PR, available HERE for £8) - I didn't really get on with these. The blades were fine but the moisturising strip that was above them was so big! It made the razor really cumbersome and awkward to use.

Would I repurchase? No.

Evy Technology Daily Defence Face Mousse SPF 50 (PR, available HERE for £27 but you can save 15% using my code TORIA15) - My all time favourite SPF! It really does tick all the boxes for me. It's super lightweight as it's a mousse, it's not greasy, there's no white cast, it doesn't smell or sting my eyes, plus it's incredible under makeup as it never pills / rolls. It's incredible protection too. The best!
Marks out of 10: 10/10
Would I repurchase? Always! I'm never without a backup.

Youth to the People 15% Vitamin C + Clean Caffeine Energy Serum (PR, available HERE for £59) - You can read my review of this HERE but to recap - this is a beautiful Vitamin C serum. It's a similar consistency to a hyaluronic acid serum - really lightweight and hydrating.
Marks out of 10: 7/10
Would I repurchase? No as there's other Vitamin C serums that I prefer.

Solgar Collagen Hyaluronic Acid Complex supplements (bought myself, available HERE for £37.25) - I have these on subscription. They're a brilliant mix of collagen, which really strengthens my nails, and hyaluronic acid which really helps stop my eye drying out as much (I wear contacts and have super dry eyes). 
Marks out of 10: 10/10
Would I repurchase? Yes.

NIOD Fractionated Eye Contour Concentrate (bought myself, available HERE for £46) - I don't really get the hype with this! It's nice enough to use - it's a lightweight almost oil like runny serum. You only need a drop per eye so it lasts ages. It's really cooling when applied so it good for depuffing plus it's hydrating. But that's about it! I didn't feel that it made any long term improvements to mu eye area. 
Marks out of 10: 4/10
Would I repurchase? No.

Gallinee Cleansing Bar (PR, available HERE for £13) - This is the second one of these that I've used up. I use it on my body only but it can be used on the face too.  It's a lovely creamy cleanser that leaves skin super soft and hydrated.
Marks out of 10: 8/10
Would I repurchase? Yes.
