I’ve been keeping track of all of my beauty purchases and empties since 2016 in Excel. I went back through to see what are the things I finished and repurchased over and over again, and these are the things that made the top of the list. There are a couple of things I’m not including either because I wouldn’t recommend them anymore even having used them for years or because they are no longer available, but these are all the things I’ve repurchased at least 4 times that I’m still planning on getting the next time I need more. Let me know in the comments if you’d like to see my most repurchased makeup items, and subscribe if you’d like to see more reviews from me!
Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream – This is my HG morning moisturizer. I can’t count how many times I’ve repurchased this, and I find that when I’m trying something else, I can really tell the difference. I find that this helps much more with skin dehydration than just dryness, which is very important for my skin. I also find that it’s a really good prep step before makeup to make sure everything goes on smoothly without catching on any dry patches. I recommend getting this during Sephora’s holiday sales because there’s always set of this and a couple other Dr. Jart+ products for less than the price of just the Ceramidin cream.
Shiseido Benefiance Wrinkle Smoothing Eye Cream – This eye cream was sent to me to try and review, and I thought at the time “there’s no way I’m going to fall in love with a $70 eye cream.” And now, I’ve repurchased it four times! This is the only eye cream I’ve found that actually works to reduce wrinkles around my eyes without irritation and while still adding a ton of hydration. I’ve been able to continually find it on sale, so I usually spend about $40 on average for it. It’s totally worth it for me for how effective it is, and this is another product where I can really tell the difference if I switch to something else.
Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream – I’ve been using this every morning for years, and it’s a staple in my dry skincare routine. It’s simple, effective, not too heavy or light, and plays well under makeup. I don’t have much to say about it except that it’s one of my favorite moisturizers for my dry skin – it just works really works, and I keep coming back to it over and over again no matter what else I try.
Josh Rosebrook Hydrating Accelerator – This continues to be my favorite facial mist of all time. I’ve tried a few others for testing, but I always end up missing this one. It’s so hydrating, it helps my other products sink in better and faster, and it smells amazing too. I’ve used it alone with nothing else if I’m in a pinch and somehow it actually moisturizes my skin enough even with my incredibly dry skin. I have been through so many bottles of this and just bought two more when Ulta was doing 20% off recently. I’m planning on repurchasing this forever unless something really amazing launches that knocks it out of its HG spot in my routine.
Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist – I use this as a hydrating step while I’m doing my makeup every morning, especially if things are starting to feel a little drier than I want it to be, because I set everything with my Cover FX Setting Spray. I use this very much like a Mac Fix+, but Fix+ breaks me out, so I was so excited to find this. The watermelon mist is so fine, actually hydrating, and smells amazing. I love how it melts all my makeup together to look seamless without disrupting anything.
Good Molecules Niacinamide Brightening Toner – This toner was my favorite skincare discovery of 2019, and I’ve been using it every single morning ever since. It has continued to make my skin clearer, brighter, and less dry. It’s also $14 for a huge bottle, and it’s my most cost effective skincare product in my routine. My husband loves it too, and it’s one of the only skincare products he consistently uses.
Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm – I’ve written about this a few times already, and it’s because it’s my HG makeup remover. I had been trying the cleansing oil for awhile, but found that the balm was more effective at removing makeup if I was wearing more of it. The cleansing oil is great for the summer and really light makeup days, but the balm is what I need (both in terms of effectiveness and hydration) in the fall/winter and whenever my skin is irritated by spring or summer allergies. I try to always repurchase this when it’s 50% off, which it usually is as some point during the year, which makes continuing to repurchase this much more cost effective.
Bumble and Bumble While You Sleep Overnight Damage Repair Masque – This hair mask always makes my hair feel completely revived from whatever I’ve been subjecting it to. It’s really magic for my hair. It keeps it looking shiny, soft, and frizz-free without weighing it down. Plus, it smells amazing, and I only need to use it about once every 3 weeks. I usually use it for only about half an hour instead of overnight, and that’s been more than enough to keep my hair feeling great. I love how long one of these tubs lasts for me, but I’ve repurchased it quite a few times because I’ve been using it consistently for so many years.
L’Oréal 8 Second Wonder Water – I really love this product and not just because it’s less than $10. I don’t understand what magic is in this product, but it does truly transform my hair only using it a couple times a week, 8 seconds at a time. It leaves me with silkier, shinier, healthier-looking hair without weighing my hair down. I have really dry hair that tends to look dull, so this has been a game changer for me.
Soap from The Oakley Soap Co. – This is the best bar soap I’ve ever tried. The scents and colors are so fun and the soap is very high quality – I don’t think I can ever go back to another bar or liquid soap. The soap works well without stripping my skin, and the scents are just strong enough to last a bit but not be overpowering. I’ve used so many bars at this point, and I’ll keep buying this forever as far as I can tell. I also love their shower steamers, which are so amazing for a relaxing (or energizing, depending on what scent you use) experience just by dropping one on the bottom of your shower.
