(R)evolving (Re)purchases #4

10/06/2014



A repurchase is a rare thing for me so for a product to get back in rotation after a full-sized packaging has been used up is a huge deal. As expected, skincare gets more frequently used, replaced or repurchased while make-up is actually very hard for me to use 'til the last drop/speck of powder. As for make-up, perhaps the most repurchased thing is the YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Foundation - still haven't figured out with what to replace it with. The same thing happens with concealers as I do get through them rather quickly but I almost never repurchase. After tossing empty tube of Collistar Lifting Effect Concealer - the Bourjois Happy Light creamy concealer is something I've hit pan a while ago and have finished it off a few days ago. Am looking for something new , though. Mascaras also get used quickly but I rarely repurchase. Some nail polishes might be headed for a repurchase (Essie Mint Candy Apple, Bahama Mama, Ballet Slippers) which is big news for me as that never happened before. Korres Jasmine Lip Butter is almost gone as well - that will be a repurchase as it'a fabulous and finally, we have the only liquid eyeliner I've ever repurchased in my life. I generally use liquid eyeliners on rare occasions as I genuinely cannot find the time for it in my daily make-up routine. However, when I do take time with my make-up the Bourjois Liner Pinceau Liquid Eyeliner is my absolute favorite. I am going through my second tube and I'm not thinking about replacing it with any other. Sure, I do try many eyeliners and some do tend to stick around in my make-up bag but ultimately - this one is the one I reach out for the most. Glycolic acid is my skin's best friend and it really shows on my complexion when I don't use it. Pores get congested, skin looks bumpy and uneven and that really makes the entire face look worn out and tired. Glycolic acid is my favorite skincare ingredient and I recommend everyone to read more about it because, as more as you educate yourself - faster and clearer it becomes that this stuff is beyond awesome. As much as I adore my Liquid Gold, I do prefer the Alpha-H Micro Cleanse. It's the perfect exfoliant as it provides the light scrubbing sensation whilst the real workhorse - glycolic acid - takes care of business. Skin is smooth, pores refined and purified - you entire face looks amazing and glowy. Any foundation looks amazing after such a treatment is previously performed. Besides my beloved Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel (which still hasn't been repurchased as it's too soon), the most positively surprising cleanser of the year so far is the Dr.Hauschka Cleansing Cream. I love it to bits so I've purchased the second tube to have in my locker at work and I also have two mini tubes at home to have just in case. I'm really happy and proud of this skincare discovery as it's the one which provides almost instant results - love! Burt's Bees Beeswax hand creams are my top picks for winter and for making manicures look more polished and hands soft as silk. I've used up the Almond Milk version a while ago and am currently using the Banana one. I think the third tub of this intensely emollient hand cream will be the Almond Milk one as I thoroughly enjoy the scent. Finally, I have an affordable shower repurchase in the form of Afrodita Cosmetics Jojoba Oil (& shea butter) Oil Shower Gel. Now, I wouldn't even hear about this type of scent during Summer but as chilly nights and mornings crept by, I turned to the delicious, sweet gourmet body washes such as this one. Since it's an oil based shower gel, it really leaves skin soft and doubles up as a shaving cream when I lather it up. Feels quite luxurious while not making a dent on your wallet. Here are my most repurchased beauty things of recent time - care to share which ones were you buying again and again?

Kod mene je zaista rijetkost da se odlucim na ponovnu kupovinu istih proizvoda koje sam vec koristila i vjerujem da nece biti iznenadjenje sto je sminka ta koju uopsteno najrijedje kupujem iznova. U svakom slucaju je sporije trosim te u vecini slucajeva se nakon ispraznjene bocice pozelim pocastiti nekim uzbudljivim novitetom. Ono cega se mogu sjetiti da sam kupila vise puta jeste YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat tecna podloga - jos uvijek nisam smislila ko da joj bude zamjena ove godine. Slicna je situacija sa korektorima koje relativno brzo trosim ali je raritet da se iznova vracam vec koristenim primjercima. Nakon sto sam ispraznila tubicu Collistar Lifting Effect korektora - slijedeci na redu je bio Bourjois Happy Light kremasti korektor kojem sam vec odavno dotakla dno. Potrosila sam ga u potpunosti prije par dana i u potrazi sam za necim novim. Maskare takodjer relativno brzo trosim no rijetko se vracam istima a novost je da ce mozda par lakova za nokte biti istroseno kroz par mjeseci nakog cega je obnova zaliha izgledna (Essie Mint Candy Apple, Bahama Mama, Ballet Slippers) - toliko sam zadovoljna sa njima. Korres Jasmine butter za usne ce biti do kraja iskoristen jako brzo i njega namjeravam ponovo nabaviti i to bi bilo to sto se tice uopsteno ponovne kupovine u domeni sminke. Jos samo ostaje jedan tecni tus kojeg trosim drugo pakovanje - mislim da to mnogo govori ukoliko vam ovu pricu prica osoba koja rijetko koristi tecni tus. Jednostavno nemam dodatnog vremena da se posvetim na dnevnoj bazi jos i nanosenju tusa no ukoliko imam par minuta viska - naredni ljepotan je moj prvi i skoro pa jedini odabir. Isprobavam dosta razlicitih tuseva i neki se uspiju zadrzati u mojoj kolekciji no Bourjois Liner Pinceau tecni tus je moj cvrsti favorit. Ukoliko bih morala odabrati samo jedan sastojak koji pruza najbolje rezultate na mojoj kozi, to bi bez dvoumljenja bila glikolna kiselina. Kada god bih pravila propuste u njezi koze i kad pocnem biti aljkava sa istom, to se skoro pa trenutacno odrazi na mom tenu i zacepljene pore, neravna povrsina koze kao i neujednacen ten su nepozeljni rezultati te aljkavosti. Glikolna kiselina je imperativ u mojoj njezi koze i preporucujem apsolutno svima da se edukuju i pronadju sto vise informacija o ovom cudotvrocu jer, sto vise budete ucile i saznavale o njemu - to ce vam jasnije biti o kako dragocjenom i korisnom sastojku se tu radi. Iako sam velika ljubiteljica Liquid Gold tretmana sa glikolnom kiselinom, ipak mi je nesto drazi Alpha-H Micro Cleanse. Po mom misljenju se tu radi o idealnom pilingu koze koji pruza ugodu sitnim mikro sferama koje masiraju povrsinu koze dok pravi adut - glikolna kiselina - odradjuje vecinu konkretnog posla. Koza je glatka, pore su refinirane i prociscene - ten djeluje krasno i posjeduje zdravi sjaj. Pored voljenog Oskia Renaissance gela/balzama za ciscenje (za kojeg je jos uvijek rano ponoviti kupovinu), najpozitivnije iznenadjenje koje sam otkrila tokom ove godine je Dr.Hauschka krema za ciscenje. Toliko sam zavoljela ovaj proizvod da sam kupila drugu full-size tubu za ormaric na poslu kako bih uvijek mogla (i u nocnoj smjeni) njime njegovati kozu. Takodjer u rezervama imam dvije mini tubice, neka se nadju. Jako sam sretna i ponosna na svoju intuciju zahvaljujuci kojoj sam odlucila rizikovati sa ovim proizvodom jer se rizik vise nego isplatio. Burt's Bees kreme sa pcelinjim voskom su mi omiljene kreme za ruke koje koristim tokom zime. Kozu cine mekanom poput svile i pomazu da manikir djeluje narocito uredno. Prosle godine sam potrosila verziju sa  mlijekom badema i nju namjeravam ponovo kupiti nakon sto potrosim verziju sa bananom koju trenutno trosim. I za kraj, imamo tusiralicu koju kupujem iznova posto me ocarala svojim slasnim mirisom ali i pristupacnom cijenom. Kozmetika Afrodita Uljni gel za tusiranje sa uljem jojobe (& karite puterom) je nesto cemu nisam mogla ni prici tokom ljeta - kada su temperature visoke, stomak mi tesko reaguje na slatke mirise. No, cim su nam se pocela javljati svjeza jutra i noci, topli gurmanski miris i slatkoca tusiralica poput ove su upravo ono sto vidim da mi prija. Posto se radi o tusiralici uljane baze, kozu cini mekanom i odlicno sluzi kao krema za brijanje. Jos jedan adut ove tusiralice jeste sto djeluje dosta luksuzno dok znate kako novcanik nije mnogo trpio za takav uzitak. Ovo bi bio spisak proizvoda uopsteno koje kupujem i kojima sam se iznova vracala. Smatram ih kvalitetnim, meni svakako odgovaraju i imaju moju preporuku. Ukoliko vi imate odredjene proizvode koje ne napustate i koji uzivaju vase povjerenje - slobodno mi javite u komentarima.
