The Beauty Repurchases



When it comes to beauty, I'm sure it's no secret that I am a bit of a fan. It's always been one of those things along with fashion that have piqued my interest. Thanks to this blog I'm fortunate to be in the position where I get to try and be in the loop about new releases, brands and the like. Right now it feels like every other week a new launch is debuting and we're certainly not deprived in the variety department. Today though, rather than focusing on the new I wanted to shine the spotlight on some repurchases aka the ones I will continually buy, unless they've been discontinued, more on that in a minute, or I switch loyalties. Many I've repurchased recently but some I pick up time and time again. They're tried and tested staples as far as I'm concerned and I love 'em. Here's why...

Sugar Crush Body Scrub x Soap & Glory: This must be my third or fourth tub of Sugar Crush, a fruity, sweet body treat from Soap and Glory. Finally it's more accessible now we have a Mecca Maxima in Auckland, carrying the S&G body product selection. It's definitely a scent that will not be for everyone but I love it. Compared to other scrubs it feels less abrasive and more gentle on your limbs. At $14 this is quite the bargain and a little goes a long way so this ends up lasting me a good few months. 

The Comforter Shower Cream x Lush: I'm still wondering if Lush HQ are playing a cruel trick on us all, announcing the discontinuing of this shower cream. In case it's not obvious, I am not thrilled. Shower creams are the perfect accompaniment after you've scrubbed and lathered up. If you're like me and find body moisturiser a bit of a faff, this is for you. It also happens to smell absolutely delightful and I'm really unimpressed that it's leaving the shelves. 

Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base x NARS: So I have lost count of the number of times I've repurchased this eyeshadow primer. A quick scan through the archives here tells me I've been using it for four years now though. I've spoken about it countless times on here so in brief, if eyeshadow disappears from your eyelids like it's going out of fashion, get this. It's the best primer I've tried and nothing else comes close.

Lemongrass Soap x Ecostore: This'll probably seem random and I'm sure some of you are like, "soap, Sophie...what the heck." Hear me out, I've found some soaps seem to not agree with my skin and this one is designed with no nasty ingredients. It's a lot less harsh and the lemongrass scent is so invigorating. I also like Ecostore's vanilla and the grapefruit+mint soaps as well. Highly recommend.

Luxe Eye Blender Brush x Zoeva: Zoeva brushes are one of those products that are all over the internet and I know they work with a few bloggers+vloggers so I do take all their products with a grain of salt. That being said I think that these brushes are superb, the ones I've tried at least and I think the quality+price point is brilliant. The luxe eye blender brushes are my go-to for depositing colour onto the lids and then using the curved edges to blend it out. They're super soft and well designed. I love 'em. Pro tip: Side note-ha, hardly a pro but anyway, buy them when Sephora NZ are having a discount day. 

-Have you used any of these products before? What did you think of them?
