It wasn’t so long ago that I shared my list of favorite beauty items, though I admit I had a pretty hard time paring that list down to 10 items! Luckily today, my Makeup Wars group decided to share our favorite items that we repurchase over and over. Which means I’ll share another 10 items!
These are items that I keep going back to, have on hand always and use in between testing out other products, and if I run out I will immediately add it to the shopping list. So, if you haven’t already, check out my first favorite beauty items list, and consider this the Part Dos version.
1. Cetaphil Cream: This has been a go-to product for me for years. I was even taught to recommend it to parents of kiddos with eczema while in my pediatrics residency. It really helps to seal in moisture after a shower, especially if you apply it right away. I don’t even hop out of the shower before I start slathering it on everywhere. Also, I love that it is much less greasy than another high moisture lotion, Aquaphor.
2. Skintimate Shaving Gel: I don’t actually have a full review on this product, but it seems to be the shave gel I always grab at the store. I have used other shave gels (Pure Silk, etc), but this one seems to work a bit better for me and it doesn’t leave rust stains in my shower. That’s a big bonus.
3. Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash: Yup, a ton of moisture in this body wash. Yup. I do find other ones that I like as a soap, but even with extra lotion afterwards, I miss the moisture from this body wash.
4. Venus Razor: Lately I’ve been springing for the 5 blade version and it just makes me happy. That is all.
5. Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1: This is the last product I use every night, I keep a lot of it around. Just, everywhere.
6. Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer: Love this concealer. It blends easily, covers up everything, and the tube lasts forever. I’ve been using this concealer almost daily for about 2 years and have only repurchased once. That’s a lot of concealer.
7. NARS Orgasm Blush: Every girl needs a go-to blush that just works. This one works for going out, work, running errands with my toddler, a dark smoky eye or even just a light wash of tan. See? Perfect blush.
8. L’Oreal Elnett Hairspray: Yup, it’s kind of a classic. I like that it holds, lets my hair move still and isn’t sticky. A can lasts me forever.
9. CoverGirl TruBlend Foundation: This is the foundation I reach for about half the time. The #415 is a good match for me, I can apply with a sponge, brush or fingers and it will still look good. Oh, and the coverage is easy to build up.
10. Kiehl’s Rare Earth Masque: I’m a long time devotee of mud masks, but this one is a bit more gentle on my face and still gets the job done.
