It's time for February's empties! 

Function of Beauty Conditioner (bought myself, available HERE from £25 for both shampoo and conditioner) - I would normally have finished both the shampoo and conditioner at the same time but I've had an itchy scalp recently so have been using Head and Shoulders shampoo instead, so I've only finished the conditioner. I've been using Function of Beauty for years and highly recommend their products (read my original review HERE). However, I've recently cancelled by subscription to them because of using H&S instead.

Would I repurchase? Not at the moment but definitely in the future.

LQ Collagen Skin Hair Nails Max supplements (PR, available HERE for £19.99 for 10) - I've used a pack of these this month. They're a brilliant all rounder beauty supplement with really high strength collagen. The taste is fairly pleasant - fruity but quite strong. 
Marks out of 10: 8/10
Would I repurchase? I've got a couple of other packs to use up that I've been sent. I wouldn't repurchase myself as they're out of my budget.

Sachi Triphala Pigmentation Corrector (bought myself, available HERE for £69) - This is my second bottle of this amazing serum. Read my review HERE, including before and after photos. A truly wonderful serum that is incredibly effective at fading pigmentation. It's fantastic to even out skin tone in general, leaving skin clear and bright. 
Marks out of 10: 10/10
Would I repurchase? Most definitely! I'm testing out another pigmentation serum at the moment but I'll certainly buy this one again at some point.

Benefit The Porefessional Super Setter Makeup Setting Spray (bought myself, available HERE for £22.10 for full size) -  I really liked this setting mist. The spray was really fine so it didn't disturb makeup. It definitely helped melt everything together, leaving a natural finish. I found it help extend makeup wear time fairly well.
Marks out of 10: 7/10
Would I repurchase? No as I still prefer Urban Decay All Nighter (found HERE).

NYK1 Lash Force Lash Serum (PR, available HERE for £44.95 but you can save 10% using my code TORIA10) - You can read my original review HERE which includes before and after photos. I've been using this lash serum for nearly 3 years now and won't be without it! I makes such a difference to my brows and lashes. It's much better value than a lot of the other lash serums on the market as you get 8ml of product, whereas others are usually 2-4ml.

Would I repurchase? Always!

Ultrasun Transparent Urban UV Protection Mist SPF 50 (bought myself, available HERE for £14.40) - I bought this to top up my SPF during the day. It's definitely the best mist of this type that I've used. It's completely transparent and the mist is super fine. It's perfect to apply over makeup - it doesn't disturb it at all. I keep a bottle in my handbag to remind me to use it!

Would I repurchase? I've already got another bottle but yes, I'll definitely buy it again.

Trinny London BFF Eye (bought myself, available HERE for £26) - You can read my original review from 2019 for this HERE. I've gone though numerous pots of this magic product since then - it's the only concealer that I use under my eyes, as nothing else compares! It's a skincare / makeup hybrid. It's so lightweight and hydrating, so it never creases or settles in fine lines. It gives a surprising amount of coverage to say how light it is. I use the lightest shade Isabelle. The packaging has since been changed to a tube with a metal applicator tip.

Would I repurchase? I already have! This is one product I can't be without.

Beauty Pie Everyday Great Skin Concealer (bought myself, available HERE for £9.28 for Beauty Pie members) - If you're not familiar with how Beauty Pie works - read my review HERE. I'm a huge fan of the foundation in this range so was really excited to try this concealer. Unfortunately I hated it! It was really patchy and clung to dry patches.

Would I repurchase? No.

Klairs Fundamental Water Gel Cream (PR, available from Tonic 15 HERE for £30 but you can save 15% using my code TORIA15) - You can read my review of this HERE but to recap - this is such a wonderful moisturiser! So incredibly lightweight, it's actually runny. It's really hydrating and soothing. Loved it.

Would I repurchase? Yes.

Nuface Gel Primer (bought myself, available HERE for £45) - This is the conducting gel to use with my Nuface Trinity microcurrent device. I've tried alternatives and they're just not as good. I always buy the large pump bottle now as it's better value in the long run and easier to use. 
Marks out of 10: 10/10
Would I repurchase? Already have!

Gallinee Cleansing Bar (PR, available HERE for £13) - This cleansing bar (not a soap) is gentle enough to be used on face and body, although I only used it on my body. It contains prebiotics to balance skin and lactic acid to moisturise. It has a lovely fresh, delicate scent to it. I found it lathered beautifully, really creamy. It left my skin super soft. A brilliant option of you're trying to be more sustainable.

Would I repurchase? Yes. Luckily I've been sent another one.

Chanel Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream (bought myself, available HERE for £43) - This isn't an empty but it's well past it best. The scent has changed so I didn't want to risk using it anymore. This is the old formula that you can't get anymore. It's a gorgeous creamy bronzer that blends beautifully. I used it loads and it barely made a dent so although it's expensive, it will last ages. It's just a tiny bit too warm toned / orange for me though, so I had to be really careful not to apply too much!
Marks out of 10: 7/10
Would I repurchase? No, it's too warm.

Wild Nutrition KSM-66 Ashwagandha Plus supplement (bought myself, available HERE for £20.50) - I'd heard great things about Ashwagandha so thought I'd give them a try! I feel like I've slept a bit better since taking them and woken up in a morning easier. I've got another bottle to try so I'll see if it continues.
Marks out of 10: 7/10    
Would I repurchase? I'll decide once I've finished my second bottle.

Beigic Replenishing Body Oil (PR, available HERE from Tonic 15 for £52 but you can save 15% using my code TORIA15) - This is a beautiful body oil. It's nourishing without being greasy or heavy. It has a subtle, floral scent which I love. It leaves my skin really soft. I liked to apply it on still damp skin, straight from the shower. 
Marks out of 10: 8/10
Would I repurchase? It's more than I'd usually like to spend on a body oil but I would repurchase as a treat.

And that's it for this month! Thanks for reading.
