Product Empties- Would I Repurchase?

Several other bloggers do these types of posts and I thank them for the idea- Nadine, Biana, & Lindsay to name a few.
I have purchased lots of great things from their recommendations so I thought I would share some of my recent product empties with you today and some thoughts on them and whether or not I would repurchase in the future.

Cheer Up Buttercup Essential Oil- I have been using this almost every day in my diffuser at work. It's a great uplifting and energizing scent that puts me in a great mood. There's bergamot, orange, lime, grapefruit and lemon in it- smells great and the price is right! Definitely a repurchase for this one.
Elderberry Syrup- Unfortunately I woke up the day before Easter with ear pain and an awful sore throat. It didn't improve the next day so I made my way to Target to get a few things, including elderberry syrup which I have heard nothing but great things about. You're supposed to take 4 teaspoons a day when feeling ill to boost your immune system and get you to feeling better. I'm not sure if it's the fact I found out later in the week that I had strep or that it just didn't work for me-but I wasn't impressed. I felt no different taking the recommended dosage per day. Not sure that I'll try syrup again-anyone else use this?
Vick's Plug In Waterless Vaporizer- This was actually recommended by Nadine a while back and I immediately purchased one for Bella's room based on what I read. It's a small plug in (almost looks like those scented room plug-in's) and you put small vapor pads in each side (2 vents are available to use). I only put 1 at a time because the scent is strong enough to only use that much- especially for smaller children. I put a new pad in each time Bella is getting the sniffles bad- which I feel like is every other week. But she wakes up the next day usually with the symptoms gone, so this thing really works like a charm! I just saw that there are other scents other than the classic Vicks scent, such as lavender and eucalyptus. I'll have to check those out next, definitely a great buy!
The Ordinary Vitamin C Cream- I LOVE The Ordinary products, and actually have been compiling a post about all the wonderful things I've tried and enjoyed. This is the first thing I have ran out of, and I 1000% will purchase it again. I don't use it every night, due to the tingling feeling properties in it. I don't think you need it every night actually! I use a small amount, a little less than the size of a dime and this has lasted for MONTHS. It's so good and my face definitely shows the positive effects the next morning.
Biore Witch Hazel Ultra Deep Cleansing Pore Strips- Ugh, NOT a fan! I'm being completely serious when I ask- do pore strips EVER work?!! Marketing sold me on this one- ultra deep! witch hazel!...must buy! They didn't do anything for me- and I could use some help in the pore area on my nose. Such a bummer.
Smartly All Purpose Cleaner- I had to mention this stuff, it's a dream! I feel that I'm showing my age raving about cleaners but it's just that good. Everyone says it smells just like Anthropologie's Volcano candle (we don't have a store close so I can't compare), but yes-the scent is amazing! It reminds me of orange lollipops from the doctor's office as a child- HAHA! All you need is a few sprays, and this cleans up stains and messes so easily. I can't recommend it enough, and you really can't beat the price. Target does it again!

Anything you recently ran out of that you would buy (or not) again?! Have a wonderful weekend- enjoy the sunshine!
