Products I’ve Used Up & Will Buy Again

It’s been a minute since I last talked about my makeup and beauty repurchases here on the blog! I recently found myself with a basket full of empty products. Some I had used for the first time and others are staples that I always rebuy. In this post, I’m giving you the inside scoop on some of the recent beauty products I’ve used up and will be buying again. They simply can’t be replaced in my skincare, makeup, and hair routines. These are so good that you bet I’ll restock them without a second thought, and so should you!

Makeup Empties

There were a few holy grail, go-to products in my empties bin this time, and Pat Mcgrath Labs Sublime Perfection Blurring Under-Eye Setting Powder in shade light is one of them. This uber-fine, sheer powder never exaggerates my under-eye dryness or texture the way a lot of powders do. This is my no-fail under-eye powder that I’ve repurchased countless times!

Lottie London Superfake Mascara was new to me in 2023 and I loved it immediately! It’s a volumizing and lengthening mascara that never flakes or smudges. What more could you ask for? I actually keep one at my everyday vanity and one at my filming vanity because it’s just that good. Plus, since it’s a drugstore product, you get great bang for your buck here!

Glow Recipe Plum Plump Hyaluronic Acid Lip Gloss Balm is all things juicy, nurturing, shiny, glossy, and more! It’s infused with hydraulic acid, leaving your lips hydrated and plump in the best way possible. This replaced Laneige Lip Sleeping mask as my go-to nourishing lip product in a jar. I just prefer the texture and consistency of this. Plus it truly keeps my lips smooth and hydrated for hours and remains on my lips all night long without feeling goopy or sticky.  

Skincare Empties

I finally finished my backup of the Origins Skin Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay in the old packaging. I’ve been using this mask for so many years I can’t even count. Most clay masks dry out your skin, but this one doesn’t! I can always tell the difference the morning after using this mask. I wake up the next morning with clear, brighter, more refined-looking skin. I don’t think I’ll ever be without this in my life!

If you’re looking for a new hand cream, Skinfix Eczema+ Ceramide Hand Cream is a safe bet! The ingredients work to soften and heal both your hands and cuticles without leaving a greasy feel behind. Skinfix is all about healing and protecting the skin barrier and this cream does just that. I also love that it’s unscented. 

Indie Lee CoQ-10 Toner is an alcohol-free toner that quickly became a favorite after I tried it the first time. It also ended up in my yearly skincare favorites video. The cloud-like mist refreshes as the antioxidant-filled formula helps balance your skin. This toner helps soften and hydrate my combination skin, making my makeup look and feel better. I use this every single day!

The Pomegranate Peptide Firming Serum from Glow Recipe is an all-time favorite peptide serum of mine. I have very sensitive picky skin and this serum agrees with my skin beautifully. It has a lightweight lotion-like texture that absorbs into my skin with ease and wears well under makeup. I use it both am and pm and just reordered another bottle! If you’re curious about adding peptides into your anti-aging skincare routine, I covered this topic and more in my video, The BEST At-Home Botox & Filler Alternatives That Work.

If you wear makeup, double cleansing is the ideal way to wash your face at night to effectively remove all the makeup, dirt and build-up from your face to have clear skin. You simply apply a cleansing balm or cleansing oil to dry skin and massage thoroughly, then rinse with water before cleansing with your regular cleanser. Farmacy Green Clean Cleansing Balm has been a long-time favorite of mine because it thoroughly removes all my makeup without stinging my eyes, and rinses easily with water without leaving a slimy film or residue behind like many balms can do.

Hair Empties

I’ve repurchased Briogeo Destined For Density Peptide Shampoo and Conditioner several times. Destined for Density has fantastic ingredients like caffeine, green coffee, oil, biotin, copper, peptides, and COQ 10 that nourish and strengthen your scalp and support thicker, fuller, healthier hair. They’re made for all hair types. I notice a difference in my hair since using them, so they’re must-haves for me.

I’ve raved about Living Proof Advanced Clean Dry Shampoo many times because it truly is my go-to dry shampoo. This will always be a constant refill product for me because instead of covering it up, it actually removes all unwanted oil, sweat, and odor, allowing me to push back hair washing day if needed. Plus, it adds volume, softness, and shine to my hair, whereas most dry shampoos add a dull chalky cast. This is hands-down the best dry shampoo I’ve ever used.

Eva NYC Freshen Up Invisible Dry Shampoo is a drugstore dry shampoo that smells amazing! Because it doesn’t work as well as my Living Proof, it’s not my go-to dry shampoo for next-day hair. I reach for this when I wash my hair at night. After I dry my hair, I proactively spritz a bit through my roots to prevent oil buildup and flattening as I sleep, which can happen to us fine-haired people! It works perfectly for that purpose!

I haven’t used a detangler regularly before, but Lolavie Glossing Detangler has become my new best friend because it’s more than a simple detangler. Sure, it does a great job of detangling. But it also adds shine and acts as a primer while it protects your hair from heat when styling. I’ve become a big fan of Lolavie styling products. I’m on my second bottle and plan to keep repurchasing!  

From the luxurious formulas to the transformative results, each one of these products plays an essential role in my beauty routine. My empties report features some of my all-time favorite beauty products that I regularly repurchase or certainly will be repurchasing.

If you have yet to try my go-to beauty products, go for it – your beauty routine will thank you later!
