The Repurchases

by Joyce in


I’m a girl who is always checking the “New Arrivals” section of my favorite shopping sites. Yes, for a few years, I even knew the day and time every week that Sephora updated their new arrivals page…

In any event, you might imagine that by the time I make it to the end of a product, my attention will have already moved on. I love reading about what other people repurchase, so I thought I would share the few items I’ve repurchased over the last year or so and would continue to repurchase for the foreseeable future. 

The Skincare Favorites
If you've been a long time reader, you probably have heard me talk about Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water (review) and Tatcha Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil (review). You've probably also heard about my love for First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream (review), which is a perfect multipurpose hydrating cream that I love for hands and body. 

The Hair Basics
I don't talk about hair very much, but I've kind of been loving Living Proof Thickening Cream. It just keeps my hair looking smooth and voluminous - whether I manage to blow dry it or not! On the dry shampoo front, I've been a fan of Oscar Blandi Invisible Dry Shampoo, which absorbs oil without the fuss of powder and keeps my hair looking normal if I oversleep... 

Are you surprised at how few items I’ve repurchased lately? I’m on a (never-ending) quest to minimize my stash, so there hasn’t really been much need to repurchase much. It isn’t as if I finish makeup! (Sad.) 

I won’t end this post without mentioning two products that I anticipate buying again sometime this year - Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve and Nars Pro-Prime Smudgeproof Eye Base. I ventured off to try some new hand creams and use up some sample tubes, but this is such a great everyday hand cream that is (relatively) affordable too. And luckily for me, I somehow ended up with a few sample size tubes of the Nars base that i’ve been working through the last 2 (!!) years. I just opened my last sample tube last month, and hopefully that will last a while.

So, what’s made it to your repurchase list lately? Do you finish and repurchase a lot of products? I’d love to know!
