Hello ladies, 
it's been two months since we got through my trash, so it's time to do it again. 

As I mentioned before, I'm currently in the process of using up all of my shower gels, and since so far all of them have been from limited editions that aren't available any more, I haven't saved them.

1. Johnsons Baby Shampoo: This is my favourite shampoo for cleaning my makeup brushes. This big bottle lasted me for ages and not only because I don't wash my brushes as regularly as I should, but also because I need the smallest amount to get rid of all the product build-up.
Would I repurchase? Already did.

2. Borotalco Invisible Anti-white marks and yellow stains Deo roll on: This was my favourite deodorant before I tried the Rexona and Dove Maximum Protection ones. It's still an amazing deodorant that doesn't have a scent that will mix with your perfumes, and that will keep you dry & fresh all day long, but I currently prefer the Maximum Protection ones.
Would I repurchase? Yes.

3. Yves Rocher Vanille CollectOR Eau de toilette intense: This was from their 2013 Christmas collection and I loved using this in the colder months, it's such an amazing warm, vanilla scent and it lasts really nicely on my skin. Supposedly their Vanilla scent from permanent line is very similar, if not the same as this.
Would I repurchase? Yes.

4. Yves Rocher Pure Calmille Cleansing gel: I talked about this in my last post. It's a no-brainer; very gentle yet removes all the makeup.
Would I repurchase? I always have a backup of it in my stash.

5. Alverde Clear Waschcreme Heilerde: Again, another cleanser that's always in my shower. I don't use this for removing my makeup, but it works great on no-makeup days and as a second cleanser. It also helps with any breakouts I might have.
Would I repurchase? Definitely.

6. Avon Planet Spa Dead Sea Mineral Facial Mud Mask: I did a review on all my Avon face masks, here. This one is amazing for clearing up your skin & your pores and getting rid of the excess oils. I bought this quite awhile ago and they changed the packaging since then.
Would I repurchase? Yes, when I use up a few more face masks.

7. Balm Balm Organic Frankincense Hydrosol Soothing Facial Tonic: This isn't a bad product, but I didn't notice any change in my skin either. To be fair, it doesn't claim to do a lot, but I want to see some actual benefits from using toners. Review.
Would I repurchase? No.

8. Alverde Wildrose Gesichtsöl: At first I loved this, it was even featured in one of my favourites, but after I was using it for awhile, I started to notice that it stopped sinking into my skin properly. I also started to get really bothered with the scent and the pipette fell off, which was another let down.
Would I repurchase? No. 

9. Dove Reparatur-pflege Intensic reparatur: After loving their Oil care treatment I decided to try something else. In terms of consistency this is very similar to the Oil care one, it also makes your skin really smooth, soft, nourished and it smells lovely.
Would I repurchase? Yes.

10. Wella Wellaflex Hairspray: I always pick up these travel sized hairsprays as I don't use hairsprays often. I tend to stick with L'oreal Elnett and I don't really know why I picked up this one instead. I didn't like it; it has that typical hairspray scent, it didn't hold my hair in place, plus it made it crunchy. 
Would I repurchase? Nope.

11. Orofluido Beauty mask for your hair: Another product that lasted me for ages. I love the scent of it and it worked really well on my hair. It isn't too thick, it doesn't weight down my hair, but it helps to keep it in a great condition. I'm on a hunt for something new, any recommendations?
Would I repurchase? Yes.

12. Maybelline The Rocket Volum' express: This really is my favourite mascara; it gives me length, volume, without clumping my lashes or giving me panda eyes. I wasn't planning on repurchasing it until I used up some other mascaras that I have, but I just couldn't be without it any longer. Every time I was going out or something like that, I found myself reaching for it.
Would I repurchase? Always.

13. Himalaya Herbals Intense Moisturizing Cocoa Butter Lip Balm: I used up another one. It's thick, quite waxy but it moisturises your lips like nobody's business. The only thing that I didn't like about it, is the fact that I seem to use up these natural lip balms extremely quickly.
Would I repurchase? Yes.

14. Le Petit Olivier Lip balm stick with Argan oil: Another natural lip balm that I used up in no time. This has an amazing consistency, it's really smooth and soft, glides on like a dream and keeps your lips very moisturised and nourished. I did notice that once you use it up, it has a lot of product left in the bullet, which you need to scrape out with your nails. It's a shame, cause it's quite expensive.
Would I repurchase? Yes, with a discount.

15. Montagne Jeunesse Tea Tree Face Spa sheet mask: If you need your skin to instantly look much brighter, tight and clear, you need this in your stash! And don't be put off by it feeling extremely tingly on the skin, I have quite sensitive skin and I didn't have any problems with it.
Would I repurchase? Already did. 

16. Kemon Liding Life Body Max Cream: Awhile ago my hairdresser had a re-opening of her salon and we got a goody bag with a lot of samples. This was one of them; it's a volumizing cream that you apply into damp hair without washing it off. It really does give your hair amazing volume, but I made a mistake and used all of it at once so it made my hair quite crunchy and dry. Next time, I'll definitely use less of it.
Would I repurchase? I still have a lot of samples left.

17. Urban Decay Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion: I got a bunch of these with the Naked 3 & 2 palette and so far, this has been my favourite eyeshadow primer. It keeps my eyeshadows last forever, without fading or getting into my crease. Although it's just a sample size, it lasted for a really long time.
Would I repurchase? Still have a lot of them left.

Now a few things that aren't empty, but I'm still throwing them away.

18. Pure Gold Collagen: I got this in my December LookFantastic Beauty Box and even writing about it makes me gag. You're supposed to drink a bottle a day for 4-8 weeks for younger looking skin, skin hydration & elasticity, healthy looking hair & nails, reduced appearance of wrinkles. Sounds wonderful, right? Well first of all, only including a bottle of this is kinda useless, and a 10 day programme of it retails for 36€. Now, there's not a lot of things I wouldn't do to reduce the appearance of a few wrinkles that I have, but drinking this is most definitely not one of them. I made a sip and nearly threw up, it smells horrific and it tastes like an orange syrup I had when I was a child that always made me throw up (sorry for TIM). Yuck! 
I made my Mum try it and to her it tasted like a shampoo.
Would I repurchase? Never in a million years.

19. INGRID Cosmetics Prelude Primer Base: I reviewed it here and I even featured it in one of my disappointing products series, so I don't really know why I kept it for so long. It's very silicone-y and it doesn't do anything for my pores or fine lines.
Would I repurchase? No.

20. MUA lipstick in 15 Juicy: This has definitely seen better days, I dropped it a few times and it rarely twists up any more.  So it's time to say our goodbyes. I did quite like the shade itself, especially in the Summer with a tan. And since it's so cheap, I can always repurchase it.
Would I repurchase? Maybe.

21. Avon Eyeshadow Primer: This is an amazing primer (not as good as the UD one, but pretty close), but the packaging sucks. After you use it up quite a lot, you need to use a brush to get it out, otherwise it just gets under your nails and I could live with that, if it didn't dry up so quickly. I tried using it and it was working for a few weeks, but now it's completely dried up.
Would I repurchase? Probably not, only because of the packaging.

Have you used up something interesting lately?
