Here’s just a lil Friday post about the stuff I like to repurchase time and time again. It takes a lot for me to want to buy a product again, I usually like to suss out the best product in that category which means I rarely buy the same thing twice, but here are a few that nag at my wallet and I’ll be sharing them here today!
Disclaimer: I thought this post would be more interesting than it is. It is in fact quite dull, and I have only 3 things to actually share! Sozzle.
Yardley Oatmeal Stick
I think this is one of the first make-up purchases I ever made back in my wee teens so I imagine I’ve bought about 6-8 products. It’s a concealer basically, but in a solid form which makes it quite waxy. It also has ingredients like tea tree oil that helps to heal any blemishes, like good ‘ol pimples, hence the name blemish stick. I really do think it helps to dry out zits but I mainly use these sticks because of it’s staying power and coverage. No other concealer I’ve used has hidden pimples like these guys. Because of it’s thick, waxy formula it almost covers broken skin like clay and evens out the raised area. A liquid concealer covers the area but the surface can still look pretty uneven. I use the lightest colour “oatmeal” but these come in a pretty large selection. Best product for covering blemishes ever!
I’ve been using Fling for about 4 years now, I go through a new one once every 8 or so months so it lasts a decent amount of time. The only thing I hate about this product is that you can never see when you are about to run out so I always have a little hissy fit when I twist any it’s done. This is because my brows are like clothes to me and I feel naked without them filled in. Back to Fling, it’s a brow pencil, a little softer than a wooden pencil (think lip liner vs lip pencil) and is the lightest colour in the MAC pencil range. The reason this colour is so popular is because it’s a light/ashy brown with no warm undertones. It’s a rare find for brow pencils, they almost always look reddy brown on the skin even when they are formulated for blondes. Brows can easily look funky if that little too dark or orange/red on a blonde. This is truly a fantastic colour for girls with light brow hairs.
Earthsap shampoos are 100% biodegradable, eco-friendly and non-toxic. They contain no synthetic fragrances, artificial preservatives, phosphates, petrochemicals, chlorine or bleaches. They ALSO don’t test on animals. Basically that’s all I need to want it, but it serves it’s purpose well enough for me to keep on buying. I originally bought it to use with gentian violet for the first time and have been using it with that stuff ever since. I decided it was best to use as natural a shampoo as possible when mixing foreign ingredients with it so I picked this one up a few years ago and I’m still loving it. This shampoo leaves my hair clean without drying my scalp or not removing enough oil for me to rewash a day later. I would probably avoid a product that totally striped my hair of natural oil because you need that shit to keep hair somewhat nourished and healthy. This shampoo does a great job for it’s low price, which for me is a big reason I keep repurchasing.
Have a happy weekend everyone!
