Products That I Have Repurchased Multiple Times

Products that I have repurchased multiple times

A few days ago I came back from a trip to Los Angeles, California where I attended a special event that I cannot wait to tell you more about (keep your eyes peeled for that). In the meanwhile, I thought about putting together a list of my most re-purchased products. These are the products that I am never without and I order the minute I am running out of them. They are also the products in which I was not able to find alternatives. Given that I receive a lot of emails and comments asking me what my favorite -insert type of product- is, I think that this post will answer some of your questions.

Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics Vitamin B Cleansing Oil. My most repurchased product of all! I was sitting next to Elizabeth Dehn at a pre-event brunch last week and I told her that I had six bottles of this oil lined up at home (I made her giggle!). Since it is one of my most used skincare products I always take advantage of sales to stock up. It is my favorite product to remove makeup and I always use a generous amount of it, which is probably why I run out of it so quickly. It is an oily blend that when massaged into the skin breaks down the makeup effortlessly and gently, even eye and waterproof makeup. It is perfect to give my face a nice massage and smells wonderful (like pina colada without any artificial/overwhelming scent). If you use makeup, you should definitely give it a try. I have bought at least 10 bottles or more since I got my first one. Currently, it is not available in Europe, but it WILL arrive in Europe, it is just a matter of time. By the way, I might have a little giveaway coming up for you European folks to give you a chance to try it because I realized I have been teasing you for too long! Make sure to follow me on Facebook because that is where I will share more details about it. Available here.

Rahua Voluminous Shampoo. I am not going to lie, I have sampled a few other shampoos since I last mentioned Rahua, but I always go back to it and I have purchased it about 5-6 times. It just works perfectly for my hair type. For the reference, my hair is very straight and fine, gets oily fairly quickly, and lacks volume. This shampoo makes my hair look much more full and bouncy. It is also gentle on the scalp and keeps my hair clean longer compared to other shampoos. I don’t even use conditioner after using this shampoo because it leaves my hair very manageable and easy to comb, (however, I apply some argan oil overnight to moisturize my hair, whenever possible). It ain’t cheap, but I just cannot seem to find one that works as well. One thing to keep in mind is that the type of water that you use when you wash your hair may change the way that a shampoo works for your hair. For instance, mine is always very soft and bouncy when I use this shampoo, but while I was in California last week, and I used this same shampoo from Rahua, my hair was not as voluminous, soft and bouncy. I felt like it was a bit sticky and funny looking. Consider getting a shower-head filter for the home and maybe another one if you travel often. Available here.

Kahina Giving Beauty Argan Oil. I probably went through five or six bottles of this. I love it as a face oil because it moisturizes the skin beautifully without making it greasy. In fact, Argan oil works great for more oily complexions due to its balancing properties (you can read more about it in my review here). I also use it on my hair as a pre-shampoo treatment/overnight mask so that after I wash my hair, it is extra soft. For me Kahina’s Argan Oil is an inexpensive luxury treatment because for $36 it works as great as some of the most expensive serums. If you have combination skin, give it a try. Available here.

Pai Skincare Echium and Argan Gentle Eye Cream. A long-time favorite of mine. It’s delicate enough not to cause my eyes to water and get irritated. Its light texture does not leave any greasy feeling under my eyes, but provides enough hydration. In fact, it soothes the under-eye area making it look brighter and it goes beautifully under makeup. I have gone through 4-5 tubes. Available here.

YULI Skincare Cocoon Elixir. You guys know I love facial mists, and this one from YULI is possibly my favorite. It is soothing and hydrating. It immediately tones down the redness that shows up on my cheeks after cleansing. It contains two of my favorite plant ingredients, which are chamomile and calendula and it is free of alcohol and essential oils. It’s light, refreshing, toning, calming. I like it so so much. I am on my third bottle in just a few months and will probably stick with it as long as my skin responds so well to it. Available here.

Maya Water Facial Mist. I have repurchased it about 8-9 times at least, for a few reasons. First, I use it to prepare my skin for cleansing so that the cleanser has a wet base to glide on. Second, since I spend so much time indoors with air conditioning my skin feels dehydrated most of the time and this is a quick pick me up to get some moisture back into my skin. Third, when I wear foundation, it helps with freshening up the skin, especially after hours of wear when the foundation starts to sink in the fine lines. I also love it to mix with my powder face masks (like the YULI Pure Mask and another one I just started to use from Laurel) to create the perfect consistency; I just make sure to press gently and slowly to make the product drip as opposed to spray when I want to mix it with a powder mask. Available here.

Priti NYC Nail Polish Remover. I cannot stand the smell of conventional nail polish removers and I find them very drying to my nails. This nail polish remover, which I purchased 3-4 times already, is oil-based and removes all of the polish leaving my nails moisturized. It comes in two versions: unscented and lemongrass-scented, which I like very much. Available here.

Waxelene. A true lip saver, especially when it’s very cold/windy and my lips are suffering. It’s a multipurpose balm that is also great to massage into the cuticles or on chapped hands before going to bed (slightly greasy to use during the daytime, but perfect as night-time treatment). I have purchased it at least 4-5 times. It’s inexpensive and works great. Available here.

Morihata Yoshii Face Towels. Technically, this is not a “product” but an accessory. However, I wanted to mention these because they are perfect for cleansing. They are incredibly soft, perfectly sized, and they properly remove the products from my face. I have grown a pretty nice collection of them as I try to get a new one with every Spirit Beauty Lounge order that I place. They are a good investment as they wash well and stay soft. Available here.

Weleda Skin Food. It’s a thick cream that softens the roughest skin. I like to use it to moisturize my feet throughout Summer, so that they are always sandal-ready. During Winter I also like to use it on my hands when they need repair, mostly at night because it is a little greasy. It smells lovely, slightly citrusy. I have gone through at least 6-7 tubes and I also keep a travel-size in my handbag. Available here.

Which products have you repurchased multiple times?

 

  • Thank you for this post! I love it and find it really helpful. I am just starting to get into green beauty products, and I am all about a simple routine, so I love finding posts like this with people’s favorite items. I just got a sample of the Vitamin B Cleansing Oil and I am excited to try it!

    • Thanks for reading Victoria, I am very glad you found it helpful. I hope you love the Vitamin cleansing oil as much as I do! :)

  • Great post sweetie! I love the Pai eye cream, it’s gorgeous<3 xx

    • Thanks for reading love! xx

  • Great post! The One Love Organics Cleansing Oil has been on my wishlist for the longest time. These are all fab products!

    • Thank you Amber. The Cleansing Oil is definitely worth trying. Let me know what you think if you give it a whirl! :)

  • These are such spot-on recommendations! I have been in love with the Elizbeth Dehn For One Love Organics Vitamin B Cleansing Oil & Makeup Remover since first try. It’s heavenly. And the Kahina Giving Beauty Argan Oil is truly stellar. I definitely see many products I want to give a try!

    • Thanks for reading. I am glad you enjoyed this post! Let me know your thoughts if you try any other product on the list. :)

  • The cleansing oil sounds so great, but I had a different One Love product (Morning Glory) that made me break out like CRAZY, so I’m scared to even try it. Maybe I will give it a go since it doesn’t stay on your face all day and is just a cleanser?

    • Hi Eliza, sorry to hear that! Breaking out from products is so frustrating. However, the ingredients of the two products are completely different, so you should not experience the same issue. Do you know if you are sensitive to any of the ingredients in the Morning Glory serum? I would imagine that your skin did not tolerate one or more of the essential oils, even if they are very small in quantity. I have not tried it myself , so I can’t compare your experience with mine.

      Anyway, I would not be concerned about trying cleansing oil because like I said, it contains a completely different list of ingredients.

      Let me know how it goes if you do give it a whirl, and thanks for reading! :)

      • Yeah I definitely think it was due to the essential oils–I’ve avoided them in other products ever since haha. I think I might have to give this cleansing oil a try :)

        • Please let me know how it works if you get a chance to try it! Thanks for your comments :D

  • Absolutely agree on Cocoon and ED4OLO Cleansing Oil! Weleda Skin Food is also so good–love it during the winter to keep my hands from getting chapped. I’ve tried to love Rahua, but I can’t figure out how much to use for my hair to make my hair feel clean but not waste too shampoo (how much do you use?) I’ve purchased the Acure shampoo so many times though–it’s so inexpensive and makes my hair feel super soft and clean.

    I love reading your posts now that I’ve met you in person :) I’m imagining you saying it in your beautiful accent <3

    • Aww, I am so happy to have met you in person Jade. You’re such a sweetheart.

      When I use Rahua I fill my palm with about a pecan size of product. I do like the Acure shampoo, but I find that Rahua gives me a little extra body, which I can really use :)

      Thanks for reading love! :)

    SO many things to add to my wishlist. I was actually thisclose to purchasing the One Love Organics cleanser, but I took it out of my basket at the last minute!!

  • just d

    I am so eager to try the One Love Organics as I am hearing er reading so many wonderful things about the products. I did also want to try the Rahua shampoo but am very happy with the Acure shampoos and conditioners including the affordability of the prices too. Considering I share most of my products and knowledge of them with my teenage son who has thick curly long hair as opposed to my extremely straight fine shoulder length hair Acure seems to be a better fit. But since I found you on ig recently I have become a fan of your blog. ❤️

  • Lisa

    I have only used the Rahua Normal shampoo and found it lacking but I have since realized all the proper buzz seems to be around the Volumizing shampoo which I just may try. Have you used the other shampoo from Rahua? Just curious what your thoughts are in that case before I take the plunge on another Rahua shampoo.

    I ordered samples of all the toners from Spirit Beauty Lounge and after trying ALL of them, I agree YULI Cocoon is seriously the bees knees. I can’t stop thinking about it when I run out and when I have it, I literally plan my days around how much is left. I think I am addicted?

  • Fern & Moss

    So many products here that I want to try! I’m also a big fan of the Priti nail polish remover, I love how good it makes my nails feel :)

  • Eve

    I absolutely LOVE the ED4OLO cleansing oil! It smells like pineapple dessert and doesn’t leave my face feeling like there is a film on it like a lot of oil cleansers do. Also a new (but dedicated) fan of the entire YULI line now, and Cocoon is so good. There are no words to describe it, just magic.

  • PeonyandPeach

    Never tried any of these, really want to give that Argan Oil a go now!

    Ciao bellissima!
    Concordo su weleda skin food, infatti anche io acquisto questa crema con estrema felicità :)

    Invece la crema occhi di Pai la sto usando proprio ora e mi piace moltissimo.

    Devo assolutamente comprare l’olio d’argan di Kahina..mi ci sono trovata da dio con i loro prodotti.
    Mentre le acque di Maya sono proprio curiosa! ❤❤

    Bacio e
