Repurchased 2013 favourites

In 2013, I discovered a lot about my skincare and make up routine that have seem to stick with me. It surprises me actually, because when I finish one product I tend to try out something else. It is very seldom that I repurchase a beauty product unless it has absolutely blown me off my feet!

So I decided to stay loyal this time, because these products made my skin happy in 2013. And I have gone and repurchased the following two in the Priceline post Christmas sales. Do you remember when they were having 40% off make up and skincare. It was the perfect time to get back these winners.

I’m sure many of those in the beauty blogging world would have come across the Bioderma Sebium makeup remover. This stuff has almost reached cult status. It simple melts the makeup away leaving the skin feeling refreshed and cleansed. Like with most make up removers I feel I have to go through a second cleanse, but this does the job first time every time!

I couldn’t find the exact bottle on the shelves at Priceline so I went with the last of the Bioderma Crealine. And this does the exact same thing, cleanses the skin without the harsh smell of regular perfumed cleansers. This is a large 250 ml bottle too, so I wonder how long will this last me. The little one took me 6 months!

Next, is the Revlon Nearly Naked foundation in Nude. It has SPF 20 and the coverage is light but buildable. This one has stuck with me throughout 2013 and will also be with me through 2014. I found I stopped using my Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24 hour foundation because it was just too heavy and made me break out so I changed to Revlon’s Nearly Naked foundation instead. It has saved my hip pocket and it feels so smooth and comfortable on the skin.

Well…I sure was a good little beauty blogger post Christmas, as I restrained myself from overspending. Sometimes these sales can trick me into buying more than I need. And then they end up at the back of the beauty cabinet! However, these two I definitely will NEED in the new year…can’t see how I will live without them.

Do you have any make up or skin care favourites that you have repurchased? What is it and how many times is your greatest repurchase?

Hope you’re all loving the short working week!
