Recent (And Not So Recent) Repurchases #4

Recent Repurchases #4

I can’t believe it’s been three months since my last repurchases post. Since then I’ve repurchased quite a few staples. In fact, it’s been such a long time since my last post that most of these items are well loved and I even finished some of them already.

On the top of my repurchase list is, of course, the Batiste Dry Shampoo (6.73 fl oz, $7.99). This my holy grail dry shampoo – and I don’t use this term lightly. I’m always afraid that I will run out so I started to buy it in bulk whenever there is a good deal at Ulta. Of the four bottles that I purchased over the past months, I already used up three so another haul is in order soon. You can read my full review of the Batiste Dry Shampoo here.

The other hair care product I recently repurchased is the Redken Extreme Anti-Snap Leave-In Treatment (8.5 fl oz, $17.50). I’ve tried other split-end treatments lately and I liked them well enough but nothing beats this one.

The Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm (3.8 oz, $28.50) is another holy grail product in my beauty stash. It removes all of my makeup with ease, even the most stubborn mascara, and it never makes my skin feel stripped or tight. I already raved about this cleansing balm in detail here.

I briefly considered using the Bergdorf Goodman gift card I received in my May Glossybox for another foundation. In the end my frugal side won and instead I decided to to repurchase the Kate Somerville Goat Milk Cream (1.7 oz, $55). I’ve been running pretty low on my old jar and at $55 a pop it’s not something I’d buy willy-nilly. But I thoroughly enjoy this cream so the gift card came in really handy. You can find my full review of the Goat Milk Cream here.

I believe it’s never too early to start an anti-aging skin care routine and the Paula’s Choice Resist Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum (1 fl oz, $30) ticks all the boxes. You only need the tiniest amount but I wasn’t sure how long my current sample would last me. I didn’t want to be without it so I decided to purchase the full size with my Birchbox points.

At the beginning of the summer I had purchased the Clinique Super City Block SPF 40 for its higher SPF. However, I like the Clinique City Block Sheer Oil-Free Daily Face Protector SPF 25 (1.4 oz, $22) much, much better. It has an air-whipped consistency that applies effortlessly. Since it’s tinted it also works great at evening out my skin tone. It contains a good dose of antioxidants and, to top off the list of all the pluses, it also works amazingly well as a primer.

I don’t often end up repurchasing makeup products but this time one item made the cut: the Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Concealer in Intensity 1.0 (0.25 fl oz, $23). I love this concealer for my under-eye area. It doesn’t quite have enough coverage for blemishes and dark spots but it does a beautiful job at brightening my dark circle. I also like that it doesn’t crease on me or look cakey.

Lastly, I also decided to purchase a family-sized bottle of the Up & Up Strengthening Nail Polish Remover (6 fl oz, $0.97). I’ve been wearing nail polish a lot so I go through nail polish remover at record speed. This one is inexpensive and gets the job done.

Have you repurchased any beauty products lately? Which items made the cut for you?

    1. Their scents are really nice. I personally really like the Cherry scent and that one seems to work the best for me out of all of the different kinds, which sounds weird but somehow some of them just don’t seem to work quiet as well as others. Have you had this problem before?

      1. Yeah! I don’t like the ones that are made for specific hair colors and I think the basic one is the least effective versus the others… Funny how that is…

  1. I had that moment yesterday! In the middle of doing my hair my Batiste ran out! I had half greasy hair and ran to Ulta!! So horrible. I probably need to stock up on more than one when I go again!
