Most used products and the ones we always repurchase!

I am sure we all have some products that we use the most and then we "run" to Sephora (or other stores) to repurchase and stock up on it, with a thought - "Just in case or I am about to finish up my other one, so I might as well pick up a back up now... etc" .

 

 What are your most used products, the ones you know you'll go and repurchase no matter what?

 

 Mine are:

- Anastasia Brow Wiz -  ohh boy - this is one of my little fave things that I use the most and I buy few of them a year, just because I use it so often.

- Nars Creamy Consealer - does its job, so smooth and gives me the coverage I need!

- When Travelmate face masque <3 - so amazing, portable, and  travel safe/mess free!!

Re: Most used products and the ones we always repurchase!

I think I may be one of the least brand loyal people on Earth. Every time I go to replace stuff I see something else I want to try. I'm like that dog in the movie UP. Squirrel!

 

I think the only product I buy again and again is the Diorskin Nude foundation. Oh, I did recently replenish a Boscia cleanser. I would definitely buy the Tarte Maracuja Oil again, but I'm pretty sure the bottle I have will never run out. It's huge and not much is needed at a time.

 

I wasn't always this way. I used to use Chanel skin products religiously, but a couple of years ago I just stopped getting results from them. Most recently I've been using the Algenist eye lift and the Murad Complete Reform and am loving them. I plan to repurchase when I run out, but who knows what new and exciting miracle product will come out between now and then.

Most of my frequent repurchases are skincare stuff like Ole Henriksen's makeup wipes, Sheer Transformation, and Vitamin C serum. Masks as well, like the Origins Charcoal mask and Fresh's Treatment bar.

 

For makeup I feel like I'm always trying different products so I never really finish anything except Urban Decay's primer potion and Smashbox's foundation primer.

It seems that I'm pretty fickle on my loyalty to most beauty products.

 

Skincare is different.

 

Products already repurchased, some more times than once:

 

  • Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover
  • Paula’s Choice Skin Balancing Oil-Reducing Cleanser (used day/night, alternating with Neutrogena)
  • Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser Foaming Formula (used day/night, alternating with PC)
  • Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant (used day/night as a toner)
  • Paula’s Choice RESIST Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum (used day/night)
  • Dior Capture Totale Eyes Essential Eye Zone Boosting Super Serum (used daytime before eye cream)
  • La Mer Eye Balm Intense eye cream (used in day)
  • Dr Brandt Do Not Age Triple Peptide Eye Cream (used at night)

 skincare items are what i'm most loyal / desperate to replace. and i'm rarely loyal to lipsticks because the moment i find something i unequivocally love it'll be discontinued, and i have to start all over. it happens to me all the time !!

 

from sephora:

caudalíe beauty elixir

nars sheer glow foundation

nars radiant creamy concealer

a lot of my new favorite things are just that--new (to me). time will only tell where my loyalty lies !

 

elsewhere:

aveda botanical kinetics exfoliant (toner)

aveda botanical kinetics moisturizer

kiehls rare earth clay mask

boots botanics cleansing balm (i use different cleansing balms but this is my most-always-have as it's affordable and easy to have on hand)

boots botanics facial oil

 

i really love nars lipstick but am not exactly 'loyal' to it.

lipsticks - i know what you mean, i hate when they discontinue  our favorite shades and then it's like "what do i do now" (unless of course you have a back up). I found out that with little or A LOT of looking around it is possible to find a similar dupe color, for lipsticks at least

Anastasia Brow Wiz and powder...I love these. 

MAC Angel lipstick. When I run out I will get another tube. Just the best pale pink nude lip. 

Josie Maran Infinity Cream oil. I use this in the winter and it saves my skin. 

RevitaLash. It has helped me grow my pathetic eyelashes to a normal length. 

Dior mascara primer. Love this and will repurchase again and again. 

YSL Babydoll mascara. This is my current HG mascara, although I am constantly in search of something even better. I've tried a million, and this works best for me. 

Dr. Dennis Gross Active Vitamin D serum oil...I had this once and loved it. Nothing has given me the glow this gave me, so I will need to bite the bullet and get it again! 

Bobbi Brown gel pot eyeliners. I have almost every color and just adore these.

For me, it's Beauty blender solid cleaner. I use it daily for the beauty blender and any brush that touches a cream or liquid product, and weekly for my other brushes. Also Lancôme Hypnose dlol lashes. I also gave a ton of GWP and samples. This one is my HG and nothing works as well for me. :smileyhappy: 

for skincare it's the Algenist Firming and Lifting serum. it's pricey but super effective.

In a month, I bet you'll be adding Genefique to this list.  It is an activating serum, so you can use it in combination with the Algenist one.  I always use two serums every time I wash my face.  More than two is silly, but when you have one that is an activating serum, it only improves other products.

 

I hope you like it.  Oh, by the way, that is the one I ended up sending you.

Re: Most used products and the ones we always repurchase!

Oh boy! I can't wait to try it! Adding to my expensive skincare routine! True Rouge style! :smileywink:

Re: Most used products and the ones we always repurchase!

Lancome is one of the biggest reasons I am not Rouge.  If I purchased from Sephora, I would not have all these awesome samples.  I wish Sephora and Ulta had real Lancome GWPs.  Everyone else does, so they really get the shaft.  Of my over 30 Lancome purchases in the past 14 months, zero came from Sephora.  Lancome direct and Macy's got the most love.

I just checked into the site of my first beauty love and saw this.  Frankly, I am thrilled.  She is the most stylish person in Hollywood right now.

Re: Most used products and the ones we always repurchase!

@notcreative, how do you like the new Genefique?  I use and LOVE the old genefique.  I hoarded a crap ton of them before they reformulated, and now I am down to the last drops of my last bottle.  I am debating whether or not to get the new formula.  I've tried samples, and it does not feel the same.  I'd love your thoughts/opinions, if you have tried the old version.   :smileyhappy:

Re: Most used products and the ones we always repurchase!

I have been using Genefique for over 3 (i think) years now and i liked the old formula, i did not even realized they changed something, until i bought the new one and packaging has changed (the dropper wise). So far because i can't really compare old to new i have to say they are pretty similar - in terms of the results i get. My skin feels much smoother as usual, but i notice that i have to use the serum more often (ex: every day vs. every other day) in order to see the results faster. But over all i am a fan of this baby!

Re: Most used products and the ones we always repurchase!

Thank you, @lovelykatya!  This is good to know.  I will repurchase when I run out. I love, love, love how it makes my skin feel so soft.  Thanks, again!

No, Unfortunately, I have never tried the old formula.  I only started using Lancome again in April 2013.  If the old formula was that much better than the new one though, it must have been amazing.  I went to the Lancome site to see what month the new formula came out and found they are using my quote on the advertisement for the page.  I never knew that before, so this is me bragging.  My screen name is different, but I rarely use the same screen name in multiple places.  That is me on the bottom left.

Prior to April of 2013, I had been experimenting with a bunch of brands in my quest for better skin.  This is the line I used just before, and I still have two stragglers I am trying to use up.  The bottle design keeps air out, so I am assuming they are both still good.  This is a natural line, but it does not moisturize my skin enough.

@notcreative, lol about the bragging.  Very succinct.

Re: Most used products and the ones we always repurchase!

The solid cleanser is awesome, it cleans the brushes so well, and quick!! Love it.

 

I found that i personally like the regular Hypnose mascara better, then the Doll lashes, i think it was because of the brush.

I've heard a lot of people say that about Hypnose. It can give some people raccoon eyes. it's a big brush.

yeahh i found the brush was too big on the Lancome Doll lashes and it did not give enough volume/length my lashes and it was weird to apply. so it was a fail for me.
