Most Repurchased Skincare

For regular readers you probably all this stuff already but just incase you need it all in one place...

Olay 4-in-1 Daily Facial Cloths

When I first started using these they were bigger, the pack was cheaper and they only came in one type. Alas, the price of progress. I love these to take on the go since they do a very good job of removing makeup.

If you're wondering about face or eye creams know that I mostly use samples. Eye cream samples take forever to go through! I am a fan of the Clinique All About Eyes gel/cream - I bought the full size for $134BDS LP after using a sample. For face moisturizers I usually stick with REN Clean Skincare again. Currently I'm using their Frankincense Revitalising Night Cream (when I remember) and their Vita-Mineral Radiant Day Cream. As well as the Mario Badescu Skincare Glycolic Skin Renewal Complex.

Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

The beauty industry is really ovadoing it with the releases cause they realise consumers are just lapping it up. We really need to take stock of what we have and be more mindful of what we're purchasing.

Personally I'm at a point where not much excites me and I truly need to cut my eye at the people tings 😁 That and Auntie Mia wanna put VAT on online purchases 👀I dunno how we gine survive bout hey! Of course I still wanna support the local M.A.C counters and attend Beauty Tradeshows so I gotta be realistic. A low buy suits me just fine.
