Everyone has favorite products that they use over and over. When those people are beauty bloggers, it gets interesting. After all, if beauty bloggers use the same thing repeatedly, it must be good right? That is why I am excited to see what everyone comes up with for this edition of Makeup Wars: The beauty products we use over and over again.

Here is my list of the top six things I repurchase:

(1) L’Oreal EverPure Shampoo and Conditioner: This is an easy to find and generally affordable sulfate free shampoo and conditioner. I use sulfate free to help keep my color looking sharp, because I do Keratin straightening, and because sulfates in shampoo cause acne around my hair line. When I am not testing other sulfate free brands for the blog, this is what I buy over and over again. I use the volume version because I have an oily scalp and it seems to work best with that.

(2)  Kate Somerville Exfoilkate: I have lost track of how many tubes of Exfolikate I have used. This is my absolute go to exfoliator. It has a gentle scrub and stronger enzyme ingredient that provides both manual and chemical exfoliation. I use it in the shower every couple of days and leave it on my face while I condition my hair. With regular use, it has kept my skin bright and it has helped with my acne. When I have run out without replacing it right away, I always noticed the effect of not using it. So now I always make sure to order more before it is gone!

(3) PCA Skin Care PHaze 13: I have battled melasma for ages and this is the only over the counter product that ever helped fade it.  I do buy this one less now because, when I quit taking birth control pills, my melasma finally faded significantly, but I still use it every couple of days just to keep things at bay.

(4) Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation: This is my go to moisturizer. It includes anti-aging ingredients and skin brighteners. It also has a light feel to it, which works well with my oil skin. I like using it in conjunction with the PCA serum to help lessen hyperpigmentation from melasma.

(5) Peter Thomas Roth Acne Spot Treatment: I have issues with adult acne and this spot treatment works better for me than any other I have tried. So, I buy it over and over again.

(6) Badger Cocoa Butter Lip Balm: I am a lip balm addict, and I test many different kinds, but when I am purchasing, I almost always grab Badger Balms. Their big cocoa butter balms feel great, taste great, and are oversized, so they last a long time. I do have a runner up here as well, Mission Lip Balm, which I repeatedly buy for running. It is a thicker, waxier balm, so it stays on longer and it has SPF 15.

  1. This reminds me, I need more Exfolikate! It’s expensive but sooo worth it!

  2. I really need to just bite the bullet and buy a full size tube of Exfoilkate. I use the same as you, in the shower, let it sit…but then I run out of samples and I’m too lazy to purchase. Well now I will, You have inspired me! LOL

  3. I used to love ExfoliKate until I realized it was too strong for me. It works so good!

  4. I’m kicking myself for forgetting to put Kate Somerville Exfolikate on my list! I keep it in my shower and have used it for years. Great list!

  5. OMG, Exfolikate is awesome! I have repurchased it a few times. Wish it wasn’t so expensive though.

  6. I just finished product testing ExfoliKate and I have absolutely fallen in love with it and the whole brand! It is, hands down, the best exfoliator that I have ever tried. I am sure I will repurchase many times in the future. :)

  7. Another one I left of my list… Exfolikate. That is such a great product and I know I have repurchased that four or five times since I’ve started using it. I do buy the mini one because I am so afraid that I am going to ruin it by keeping it in the shower so long.

  8. Exfolikate is great! EverPure is a gem at the drugstore. What a great list!

  9. That lip balm sounds divine! I’ve heard great things about the Kate Somerville too!

  10. Ahhh Exfolikate. Must try!

  11. Now that you mention it, when I stopped using sulphates the acne around my hair line cleared up too!

  12. Sulfates in shampoo are one of those tricky acne causing ingredients. They don’t seem to get listed a lot as being acne causing ingredients, but it isn’t unusual for some people to report problems from it. Awhile back I tried an acne treatment that had sls in it and didn’t notice the ingredient until it was too late. I had a major breakout that I am still trying to clear up! Now I know to check ingredient lists a little more carefully!

  13. Looks like Exfolikate is a winner all around! Teri, I have never had a problem keeping the tube in the shower. Way back when Exfolikate came in a tub with one of those push top pumps (so glad they ditched that design), I had problems with water getting in it, but the tubes have been fine for me.

  14. I loved the L’Oreal Ever Pure line before I went cruelty-free. Great choices! If you’re looking for another line at that price point, I highly recommend the Marc Anthony.

  15. I will look for the Marc Anthony line!
