Beauty re-purchases are about the products that keep us coming back. We all have our cult favorites, and also new products we discover that then quickly become part of our beauty routine.

The following products are my most recent re-purchases. They’ve worked for me, I’ve enjoyed using them and they are products that I consider to be worth my mulah— *A.K.A cash money!

First up, is one of my cult classics, the L’Occitane Cleansing And Softening Shower Oil With Almond Oil. I’ve been using this product off-and-on for years, and I will continue to buy it. It is such a lovely, delicate and luxurious treat in the shower or bath. This shower oil is a body cleanser, it lightly foams up as you work it onto your skin. I love the way it hydrates and smooths my skin. After I take a hot shower or bath my skin feels so soft, looks luminous and hydrated. I love using it mostly for shaving- IT IS THE BEST SHAVE EVER!

The Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil by Fresh has been a part of my skin care routine since February. I love facial oils. I bought the smaller 0.5 oz at the time and I still have a little product left in that bottle before I open up my new one. But for the size, I think it has lasted me a good amount of time. I put 2 drops onto my fingertips, then I rub my hands together and I gently pat the oil onto my face. It absorbs into my skin quickly and my face does NOT feel oily. Since using the Seaberry oil my skin feels moisturized, looks healthy (like I drank 20 glasses of water), and feel like it has helped balance my skin. I usually have combination skin with an oily T-zone. But the face oil has seemed to balance my skin out. Not too dry, not too oily. It’s the ‘Goldilocks’ of face oils.

I bought the St. Tropez tan applicator mitt again because It’s the best mitt, in my opinion, to apply my self tanner with. I’ve tried a couple other brands and St. Tropez’s mitt holds up the longest. It’s just a really great tool to use for applying my self tanners evenly and easily.

I’m still a fan of First Aid Beauty. I started using their products 4-5 months ago, and the cleansing wipes and facial radiance pads continue to be frequent re-purchases of mine. I keep a packet of wipes in my gym bag, my purse and in my bathroom. These towelettes effectively remove any make up, sweat, grime, or whatever from my skin. I love how clean my skin is afterwards and it does NOT leave an oily residue behind like some other cleansing wipes I’ve tried. The cleansing wipes do tend to be a little ‘soapy’ (as I tried to show in the picture above) BUT I don’t mind it. It does not irritate my skin, and like I said, It really does a good job of cleaning my face with out leaving anything but a clean feeling. The Facial Radiance Pads do a great job of exfoliating and toning my skin, and keeping my complexion clear from break-outs (until that time of the month comes around, then I gotta take out the big guns!).

My last re-purchase is my NYX Butter Gloss. Ohhh how I love me some NYX products! I own about 12 NYX lip products, and my collection keeps growing. The Butter Glosses are great. They are highly pigmented, long-wearing, hydrating and not tacky or sticky on the lips. Best of all, they are super affordable! The shade ‘Merengue,’ pictured above is one of my favorite pinks, it goes with almost every skin tone.

Please share what some of your favorites are, I’d love to hear them.

Have a great day, and thanks for reading!
