Things I've Recently Repurchased

La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo+

Three years on and I'm still keeping back-ups of this in my bathroom cabinet. Effaclar Duo is without doubt my most repurchased beauty product of all time and remains to be the sole recommendation that I'd give to anyone with blemish prone skin. The frequency with which I apply it varies - from twice a day during breakouts to once every few days when my skin is feeling generally under control. 

Kiehl's Skin Rescuer

Alongside LRP, Kiehl's are one of the very few skincare brands that I've grown to love and trust. Having sensitive, blemish prone skin means that when I find a product I like, I stick with it for the long haul. The Skin Rescuer has been my morning moisturiser of choice for a while now, adding enough hydration to prep the skin for makeup without encouraging any excess oiliness throughout the day. 

NARS Sheer Glow Foundation

I've just about found my ideal shade match in 'Gobi' which, paired with impressive coverage and a long-lasting, satin finish, makes Sheer Glow one of my favourite foundations of all time. I'm struggling to split hairs between this and Giorgio Armani's Luminous Silk, although the (slightly) lower price tag of this one means that it was first to make its way onto my repurchase list. It's one of the few hyped up products that I think is worth the praise that it gets.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette in 'Diffused Light'

It was probably back in high school that I last 'hit pan' on a product. I tend to use a light hand with powders anyway, which combined with my magpie-like tendency to be drawn to new things has made it fairly impossible for me to reach the bottom of things before they grow well past their use by date. I can't explain exactly what it is about Diffused Light that warranted a repurchase, I can only say that the fresh, skin-like finish that it leaves is unrivalled by anything else that I've tried.
