makeup skincare bodycare flatlay

I love a good 'Favourites' round-up but nothing speaks more highly of a product and its value than it being repurchased and enjoyed all over again. I'm going to share with you my top repurchased products that I've enjoyed using again (and again in some cases) because they're not just fleeting favourites; these are my beloved BEAUTY RERUNS!


Firstly, I should state that I haven't included every beauty product I have ever repurchased because if I had there would be a heck of a lot more Soap & Glory here obviously. I've tried to stick to some recent repurchases or things that have become new staples, but don't worry, some oldies have snuck in too.

Speaking of which, Soap & Glory Heel Genius £5.50 has featured a lot on my blog and Instagram because it's nothing short of amazing. I've tried other products for my naturally dry and crack-prone heels but they don't compare to this pink tube of 'happy feet'. I also really love Soap & Glory Hand Maid £2.50, which is just a regular antibacterial hand sanitizer, except instead of that traditional awful smell, this is scented with the original pink S&G fragrance. As a mum, I always carry this around because I never know what the ducklings will touch next. 

Alongside S&G, another brand that I enjoy reruns from is Boots Botanics which offer some of the best, most affordable skincare on the market. I've gone through bottles of their Facial Oil and have recently fallen in love with the Botanics All Bright Radiance Concentrate Serum £6.99, which sinks in instantly, leaves my face looking plumper, brighter and healthier. Also their Botanics Triple Age Renewal Hydrating Eye Serum £9.99 has impressed me so much, I had to pick up another tube last week. It's a simple, hydrating, nourishing eye cream that does just that with no fuss. I really like it and would recommend it to even sensitive types.

my favourite skincare and body care products that i have repurchased

One of my favourite discoveries of this year is the brand SuperFacialist. Their products continue to amaze me and I'm yet to find one that doesn't blow me away. Of them all, I'd say their Vitamin C+ Skin Renew Cleansing Oil £10.99 is my favourite, which removes makeup with ease, leaves my face glowing and bright, and smells delicious all the while too. I recently repurchased this and can imagine doing so for a long time to come. 

A surprise rerun for me is Nip + Fab Dragon's Blood Fix Cleansing Pads £9.95 which I bought more out of curiosity and convenience (they were on sale) than anything. I quickly grew fond of them as a quick toning step after my morning cleanse and am now onto my second tub. They are full of skin-friendly ingredients such as salicylic acid, hyaluronic acid and witch hazel and give me a clean, even base to layer my skincare onto. An acid toner I'm ready to see repeated is  Pixi Glow Tonic £18, who needs no introduction. This orange liquid is a gentle way to remove dead skin cells and instigate cell renewal and I'm addicted to it.

Finally, it's a handcream. Given that I get through tubes and tubes of hand cream all year round, as soon as I tried Caudalie Hand & Nail Cream £4 I knew this was one of the best ones I've ever tried. Now onto my 3rd tube this year, every time I use it the sweet but light fragrance, the non-greasy texture and its ability to keep my mitts from drying out and becoming irritated, I proclaim that this is the best hand cream ever.

  3. I know I have said this before but your blog is bound to bankrupt me again and again. I still can't help coming back to check out your recommendations which are absolutely down my street. I need to pick up the Botanics Serum asap. I have tried the Soap and Glory offerings and they are amazing as expected!! Pixi Glow Tonic is bae as we all know!!

    1. I really think it is one of the most underrated brands around. Some of these products I can imagine using for the rest of my life ;) xxx

  5. I absolutely love the Glamglow Youthcleanse Cleanser. I've probably repurchased this product like 5 times because I feel like it really cleans my skin from all the makeup & provides a mild exfoliation, yet it's not as intense as the company's other cleansers. Also, I've repurchased the Origins Gin-Zing Moisturizer and the Tarte Maracuja Oil, which are such an awesome combination if you have oily skin. However, now that it's getting colder here, I need something much more moisturizing. Any suggestions?

  6. I love soap and glory, I wish it was that readily available here in the States. And Botanics skincare is surprisingly very good. AND OMG I don't know what took me soo long to get my hands on that Pixi tonic, I'm hooked that stuff is amazing...
