Forever Repurchased #2

There's a few products that I use so often that really, they're just a given, and I end up never really giving them a proper review on the blog. There's quite a few products I regularly use that I love, and I know I'll be buying them for years to come.

First up, and a bit of an odd one, is the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. I'm not sure why it'd really need to be repurchased like the others, but perhaps if one day it's on it's last legs or I lose it, I know I'll always need this little beauty. I go between the buffing brush and this, and I've just started using this again and I'm so in love. Occasionally with the buffing brush I can end up with a few patchy areas of foundation, but definitely not with this, it blends in my foundation seamlessly and looks so flawless. A must have in my make-up bag.

Since buying Soap & Glory Whipped Clean a few months ago, I'm pretty positive I've used this in every bath and every shower since. It has the most heavenly scent ever, and is perfect for me being quite lazy for moisturising as it has very hydrating ingredients in, so leaves my skin feeling very soft anyway. I've searched for more in the range but nothing seems to have the exact same scent which is a little disappointing!

I'm very much an eyeliner girl, and the one I've been using over a year now is Soap & Glory Supercat (this is starting to sound like a soap & glory appreciation post!) Being a felt tip style it's incredibly easy to use, really pigmented and really long lasting too. I never end up with panda eyes or needing touch ups with this, and I get through one every 6-8 months, so seriously good value too.

The Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch Primer is the same, something I've used every single time I've applied make-up since it's buy back in November - apart from the times I've forgot! This is the perfect primer for us oily skinned girls; it smooths over any flaws in the skin making a perfect base, and really helps my make-up to last longer, especially on my oily t-zone. The pot seems tiny when you first buy it, but a little goes a really long way with this stuff, and I've still got about 1/3 of my pot left!

And last but not least is the REN Invisible Pores Detox Mask. This is the first mask I've tried from REN but definitely won't be the last. It's perfect for those bad skin weeks, and just seems to help sort out any issues, whether it's little whiteheads or under the skin blemishes. Everything is calmed and unclogged, and it's the perfect first step of a little mask facial set I've got going on at the moment. I've had it a few months now and it'll be repurchased before running out, I couldn't be without it.

Do you have any products you'll always repurchase?

    I did think it was a little odd to include the face brush when I first saw the picture but then you mentioned losing it or having it be on its last legs… and it made complete sense to me because I'd do the exact same haha! It really is a fantastic brush that I can't imagine applying some of my foundations without. Also thank you for reminding me about that S&G eyeliner… I've been wanting to try it out for ages! :)

  6. I love, love, love Whipped Clean! I have to buy it when I'm in the UK, so I only use it as a treat or when I know I'm going to have trouble sleeping because the scent is so heavenly and it just feels so luxurious!

  7. Might check out the soap and glory eyeliner ! Thanks for the lovely post ! ^__^
