September Empties / Products I've Used Up

It's Empties time!  There are quite a lot again this month, mostly due to my (sort of) spending ban I'm on at the moment.  So here are the products I've managed to finish up recently, my overall thoughts on them, and whether I'd repurchase any again or not.

Organic Surge Citrus Mint Shower Gel* (review)
A firm favourite in my bathroom, this is super refreshing and does a fantastic job of waking you up first thing in the morning.  The citrus oils give it a little extra 'zing' and mixes well with the mint, plus I love that it's SLS free too.  I think this is the second or third tube I've gone through.  Repurchase?  Already have another one on the go!

Neal & Wolf Harmony Intensive Care Treatment*
Initially I loved this hair mask but the more I used it, the less noticeable the results became.  It's OK but I have so many more hair treatments that work much better than this.  Repurchase?  No.

Rescue Oil
This is a budget dupe for Bio Oil and sadly it did absolutely nothing for me.  The texture is also on the sticky side which made it off putting to use as well.  Repurchase? No.

Bodhi & Birch Neroli Luce Revitalising Face Oil* (review)
What a sad day it was when I finished this :( One of my favourite face oils (have used up a bottle before) and a perfect match for my oily/combination skin.  Always made my skin feel balanced and look glowy, just a gorgeous product with an amazing scent! Repurchase? I have a travel size in my stash. 

Bare Minerals Prime Time Foundation Primer (review)
This is the first ever primer I've managed to finish because I tend to only use them for special occasions rather than every time I wear makeup.  It's got a silky silicone texture but I never experienced any breakout problems with it and it helped to prolong the wear time of my makeup by a good few hours.  Repurchase?  Possibly in the future as I'm currently using Daniel Sandler's primer which is very similar.

Barry M Intense Black Eyeliner Pen (review)
Loved this, very pigmented and waterproof, just an all round fantastic eyeliner. Repurchase?  Sadly it's been discontinued :(

Lyonsleaf Beauty Balm(review)
Although I've used this with other cleansers, it lasted absolutely ages!  Another skincare favourite, this is one of the best balm cleansers I've ever used and is packed full of amazing ingredients.  Repurchase?  Definitely will.

Apples & Pears Wild Rose Lip Balm (review)
Gorgeous delicately rose scented lip balm and very moisturising.  Loved the rose gold lip too with the little bee, so cute.  Repurchase?  Sadly it's been discontinued :(

Gwdihw Orange & Lemon Lip Balm*
This was huge and I never thought it was going to end but I've been on a mission to use up my half empty lip balms recently.  Nice scent, but not as hydrating as others that I have.  Repurchase?  Probably not.

Perfekt Skin Perfection Concealer
Amazing heavy duty concealer for those days when you just need something that will absolutely cover up the worst dark circles and blemishes.  Does require some powder over the top to set it, but worth the extra effort because after that it stays put all day. Repurchase?  Definitely.

Pai Comfrey & Calendula Calming Body Cream (review)
Does exactly what it says on the bottle - it's gentle on sensitive skin and keeps everything moisturised and happy.  Great for eczema flare ups too or when your skin is just particularly very dry.  Repurchase?  Yes.
