I’m not loyal to many products really. I hop from brand to brand for all things. There’s always a new shower gel/moisturiser/lipstick I want to try out but while I was thinking about this the other night I thought of a few things that I consistently rebuy and I thought it’d make a nice little post.
So without waffling on much more, onto the first item.
Rimmel Hide The Blemish Concealer
I’ve used this stuff for more years than I care to mention. It used to be the only concealer I used at all but as I’ve got older it’s lost its position as sole concealer, now I choose to use other concealers when putting my make up on in the morning, but this will always be my stashed-in-my-handbag and another-spare-in-the-bathroom concealer. The shade Ivory matches my skin brilliantly, it’s portable and quick to use, blends and covers well and is cheap as chips. Say no more.
Sure Stick Deodorant
Any of them! I never get wet patches from sweat, and they never stain my (mostly black) clothes. It’s a no brainer.
Seche Vite Top Coat
I don’t know what I did before this came along! Yeah I sometimes notice a bit of tip shrinkage with it, but when you have small kids you have to be ready to pick them up or put them back to bed at any moment. having to wait half an hour for nails to dry just isnt’ possible. Touch dry in a minute, solid in five this suits my needs perfectly, plus it’s ultra glossy. For a mother of young kids, this is essential if you like to do your nails!
The only lipbalm I’ve ever tried to date that actually helps and heals my lips when I have a cold. I particularly favour the cherry variety. I do stray sometimes but I always come back to this stuff. It works!
Beverly Hills Formula Toothpaste
I was told by my dentist years ago that the enamel on my teeth is particularly grainy and therefore more attractive to stains. Which is nice. I believe (and don’t quote me on this) that BBC’s Watchdog found that this toothpaste removed over 90% of staining and I’d have to agree this is absolutely fab. Keeps my teeth as white as my teeth can be.
Collection 2000 Clear Mascara
I can’t find an image for this and I’m not showing you a picture of my decidedly murky looking bottle. I’ve been buying this cheap as chips product for years for holding my brows in place. It’s about £1.99 and so far as I’m concerned a clear mascara is a clear mascara and I’m not about to spend a tonne of money on one when this works just fine!
Lush Ocean Salt Scrub
I’ve blogged about it before, more than once I think. I just can’t be without this. Once a week on my face and on any body parts that need a bit of attention (hello upper arms!). Smells amazing, does a great job and is affordable.
So, what are your basics that you consistently rebuy? Let me in on your secrets!
