Instant Repurchases

Recently I was watching Mary from ALoveTart's video and it got me thinking: which products do I repurchase before they've even run out?


Some things are just staples.

Macadamia Natural Oil Nourishing Leave-In Cream

Shay from Magnific Hair first introduced me to this brand a few years ago and I've been hooked eva since. I haven't seen it available locally but you can get it on Amazon and even sometimes on Hautelook 1 (a flash sale site that offers a wide variety of products at reduced prices).

M.A.C Prep + Prime Highlighter 'Peach Lustre'

Bath & Body Works Gentle Foaming Hand Soap 'Black Cherry Merlot'

This scent is simply divine...but I'm sure you're tired of hearing me say that.

NYC In A Minute 'Grand Central Station'

These are also available in The Marketplace.

Berkley & Jensen 100% Pure Cotton Rounds 100 Count

The packaging has changed but the product better has be the same. These are best cotton pads I've found locally. Shopsmart has them for the best price (approx. $7) but I've also seen them in Bio Beauty for about $12. International readers you can find them easily on Amazon.

rms beauty lip & skin balm 'simply vanilla'

Aveeno Positively Smooth Shave Gel

I've always found the Gillette Satin Care range to be heavily fragranced and a bit messy to deal with. I have none of these issues with this one and it's also cheaper.

Chanel Chance

Maybelline Define-A-Brow 'Medium Brown'

I had heard someone say on YouTube that this was being discontinued. I don't know if that's true. For many years I would only be able to find it in pharmacies in Jamaica. Thankfully now it's readily available in Collins, Paradise Beauty Supply, Rachel's Health and Beauty and Massy Stores. This was the first fine tip retractable brown pencil I ever used.

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.

Since watching her uploads, I've noticed it impacting other Beauty YouTubers I like:

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.
