Forever Repurchased #1 Highstreet/Drugstore Edition

drugstore highstreet repurchases soap and glory nivea garnier vo5 no7 revlon

I do empties posts often enough now I thought I would put together a post featuring some old favourites of mine that are repurchased again and again and I can’t see myself switching up anytime soon!

drugstore highstreet repurchases soap and glory nivea garnier vo5 no7 revlon

First off we have my favourite makeup removal team, I always do a double cleanse at night and to begin with I will take a few cotton pads and use my Nivea Lotion for normal skin to dot on my face and gently remove my makeup. The Soft & Pure Cotton wool cosmetic pads are so absorbent and the Nivea is really creamy and works well to remove the bulk of my makeup before I go for my second cleanse (where I usually use a balm or oil cleanser).

To remove my eye makeup which daily includes eyeshadow and a lot of waterproof mascara, I use an oil based eye makeup remover, my favourite being the Garnier Express 2 in 1 Eye Make Up Remover. This is so gentle, it doesn’t sting my eyes and most importantly, it’s very effective at removing my eye makeup without me having to rub or drag my eyes.

Next up we have a few makeup repurchases including my favourite daily foundation. If you like affordable high coverage with a good range of shades for those with paler skin then Revlon ColourStay foundation is your guy! It was included in my empties post last week and I mentioned then that I started panicking recently when I could find my shade in any Boots stores for weeks and thought they had discontinued it! I finally found it and bought two which should keep me going for a few months! I used to favour applying this with my fingers as it tends to set quite quickly so I like to use the warmth from my fingers to help spread it evenly but recently I have really been enjoying using a Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge to apply it! My sponge is on its last legs though so I am thinking of upgrading to a Beauty Blender soon!

I took advantage of the 3 for 2 offer on make up in Boots recently to restock my favourite concealer, Soap and Glory Kick Ass Concealerin Light, as I've hit pan and I use it daily so it won’t be long before it runs out! I have a full post on this concealer and why I love it so much already here but in short, it's creamy, has a peach tone to correct under eye circles and a yellow tone for discolouration as well as a mini powder to set and is the perfect size for handbags. I love it!

I also repurchased my favourite pressed powder – No7 PerfectLight Pressed Powder in Translucent and used a £3 off No7 voucher while doing so (gotta love Boots offers). This is amazing at stopping shine on my oily t zone and I never hear it getting raved about! With other powders I have to top up at lunchtime and sometimes feel my makeup can look a little cakey afterwards but with this I just apply in the morning and that’s me to the evening! It’s amazing!

Last but not least, another product I feared had been discontinued, my beloved VO5 Refresh Me Quick Dry Shampoo! The scent of this is so fresh and clean and even better, it leaves no white cast! I’m so happy to see this back in stock, I usually buy mine in Savers as it’s a little cheaper and I hope it sticks around this time! One of my favourite shampoos was recently discontinued and I can’t take anymore disappointment!

So those are my forever repurchased products that I can't see myself replacing with other products any time soon! Have you tried anything I’ve mentioned? What products do you constantly repurchase?

  1. ohh I need to try that N7 powder. I agree, N7 is so good but everyone forgets about them!

  2. I agree with Pam, No7 is so underrated and they offer some amazing products! I've never tried their powder before, but I love their eyeliner and their nail polishes! Thank you for sharing. :) <3

  4. The Revlon Colourstay and S&G Kickass are both products with fab formulas but unfortunately the shades didn't work out for me - if they did they'd be drugstore holy grails for me too! xx

  7. Two in one makeup removers are amazing, I have the Nivea one myself although I do need to wash it off sometimes as it leaves a slight greasy residue. My concealer probably runs out the most :)

  11. I think I`m in minority here, but I actually did not like the original beauty blender. I got 2 in beauty boxes, but I just don`t understand the hype. They`re expensive and I think the shape of the RT one is a lot better, as it has more angles.

    1. I only use the pointy side of the RT sponge so don't think the lack of a flat side would bother me but it is a lot of money for a sponge that will need replaced, I might get it if I can find a discount code :) xx

  31. Excellent suggestions! I've found that a lot of times it's drugstores that have the best products, you just really have to know what you're looking for (i.e., study the ingredients.)
    Ponds Cold Cream is probably my favorite drugstore purchase that I always go back to. It's so simple it's almost stupid, but that's the thing I love about it -- there are no obnoxious gimmicks. It's just so effective!

    Love your little blog, by the way :)
