Forever Repurchased #2 Higher End Edition

After my post on drugstore repurchases I realised I had a few higher end recent repurchases too so here they are!
emma hardie moringa cleansing balm pixi glow tonic alpha h liquid gold estee lauder double wear review

I actually got this and the Alpha H in the gift with purchase Cult Beauty had last month, it was just too good to pass up for me! This product is so hyped up in the blogging world and I caved last year when they finally started stocking it on more online shops and I had a 20% off code for ASOS.com! It’s such a gentle but effective exfoliating toner that promises to remove dead skin cells while toning, smoothing and refining skin texture. I am so sceptical when it comes to blogger hype and will usually try to find something wrong with the product but with this I just can’t, I love it! My acne prone skin laps it up and it just makes my skin feel smoother and clearer and its one I will continue to repurchase! The 250ml I’m using at the minute (not pictured) has lasted me around a year because you don’t need a lot and I sometimes only use it at morning or night instead of both to save it!

I've spoken about this before in this post on my Skincare Saviours and it’s another one I love having in my stash and miss when it’s not there! It’s an overnight chemical exfoliator that claims to resurface the skin and help to diminish wrinkles, pigmentation and sun damage. Again, another product I bought because of the hype and another one that totally lives up to its claims for me! The mornings after I use this, my skin just looks better, it’s clearer, more even, and plump and my old acne scar pigmentation doesn’t look as obvious. Couldn’t be without this now! 

This is my Holy Grail going out foundation, I love the stuff! Finding a shade match can be a little dodgy and I’m on my second or third match at the minute (Desert Beige) which I’m happy with when I have tan on. Nothing else compares to the coverage of this though. It’s not for everyone, but as someone who had bad acne until a few years ago and still has scarring this foundation is a godsend and makes me feel so much more confident when I have it on. I usually apply with either my fingers or a beauty blender and you have to work quickly as it sets fast but once this is on it is going nowhere. I've come in from nights out and my makeup looks as good then as when I went out hours before. The only possible downside is that is has SPF 10 in it which does give a bit of flashback but it’s a small price to pay for the amazing coverage and lasting power it gives!

Man I love this stuff. I was hoping I wouldn’t because its expensive buts it’s just a lovely cleansing balm that leaves my skin feeling soft, hydrated and most importantly, clean. A little bit goes a long way with this which is why I didn’t feel so bad repurchasing but I did wait for a 20% off code! It’s so gentle and works really well over the eye area too which I love and it has quite a strong orange smell which I got used to quickly! It doesn’t feel drying in the slightest and it’s just a really luxurious feeling cleanser that I’m glad to have back!

Have you tried any of these products before? What did you think?

    2. I agree! I was skeptical at first too! But I'm thinking I'm going to cave as well! It doesn't hurt to try right?

  5. I've actually not tried any of these products but want, just haven't got around to purchasing them. I keep forgetting that Asos stocks beauty and never take advantage of their offers! x

  7. I absolutely love Estée Lauders' Double Wear too! I am still on my first bottle, but I will definitely be repurchasing when I need to. I was matched the same shade as you too, and I it the tiniest bit too dark, but I still love it so much.

  11. Pixi Glow Tonic is not easy for me to get in Canada, I have to get it through online so I opted for Nip+Fab Glyconic exfoliating pads instead which worked wonders on my skin too. I'll need to read on on Emma Hardie cleansing balm, I think this is the first time I read about it.

  12. I really want to try the Pixi toner. At the moment I`m using the Liz Earle one and I really love it, but there`s been so much hype about Pixi products, I feel like I`m missing out.

  14. I really like the Alpha H but I think I will end up repurchasing the Pixi instead as it's cheaper yet still works so well :) I haven't tried the Emma Hardie yet but really want to and totally agree on Double Wear! xx

  15. I recently went for the double wear, and I must admit I dont love it more than my studio fix. As much as I want to, I just cant :(

    My go to repurchase for high end is studio fix in NC15, always. That and my Estee Lauder Day Wear.

  21. I don't have the foundation but I've tried all three of the other products and have definitely repurchased each of them myself! They're all so good it's impossible to fault them, and I definitely miss Liquid Gold when I don't have it.

  22. I've just started using Liquid Gold and really hope I'll get the same amazing results everyone seems to have! As a cleansing balm I love my Clinique one, I've never tried the EH one, though.
