It's not often that I will repurchase a beauty product, but when the déjà vu strikes upon the arrival of the parcel, I'm here to shout it from the blogosphere rooftops. When I know that something really works for me, there's no doubt that I'll try anything else. My growing fear of a spurred skin reaction of eve my undaringness urge me to buy things again and again. So here I am, telling the tale of the repurchased products.
It's fair to say that I'm definitely not daring when it comes to skincare. In the past, my use for the Caudalie Beauty Elixir fixed the growing redness on my cheeks. Now, it's my second bottle and my use of the herbal scented product is slightly different. Serving as my morning toner and night "give something" spritz, it does a different job, yet executes it just as seamlessly as it did the prior.
REN not only is a brand that bloggers love, but it is also the home of my favorite cleanser - REN Clearcalm 3 Clarifying Clay Cleanser. Containing lactic acid to gently exfoliate, aloe to soothe, and clay to draw out impurities, it's a previously-acne-prone girl's dream. I say "previously" because the time in between spots has changed from hours to weeks....pretty good, eh? The process is simple - a apply one pump onto steamed, dry skin (it sounds fany, but it really just means immediately post shower), and let sit while I sort the towel, day's worth of clothes, and hair. Then, I spray rose water over the top, massage in, buff using the Clarisonic (only about twice a week), then rinse and remove with a muslin cloth. It sounds quite long, but it is really quite simple.
If my love for the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask has not come across clearly, I hope it does now...with the second tube. A tiny amount slathered over the skin in the place of moisturizer results in glowy, plump, moisturized skin come morning. It smells wonderful and gives my dehydrated skin the moisture feast it needs. Simples.
Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Although some ode this phrase to a loved one, I'm associating it with the Bumble and bumble Surf Spray (how vain of me). My limp, thin, and soft hair may sound dreamy to some, but for me, it's more of a nightmare. A beachy, texturizing spray comes in handy more often than not in making my hair look a little bit...better.
I've mentioned it time and time again, but the Origins Vitazing Moisturizer is truly one of the best products in my skincare routine. You know me and my complexion resembling that of medicinal gauze, but the tan-ish tint never leaves me looking orange or tangoed. Glow in a tube, it's perfect underneath my everyday base or alone with a touch of concealer (call me lazy).
The repurchased trumpet has been blown and don't doubt that I won't be back when the process happens again.
