The true test of whether you love a beauty product is whether you’re willing to buy it again once it runs out. Part I of this series included makeup I’ve repurchased. For part II, here are 7 skincare & body care products I’ve repurchased, in no particular order.
Paula’s Choice: Skin Balancing Pore-Reducing Toner ($21), Clear Extra Strength Daily Skin Clearing Treatment with 5% Benzoyl Peroxide ($19), and Clear Oil-Free Moisturizer ($29)
Paula’s Choice is by far my favorite skincare brand. I can use any product in their line knowing it is free of fragrance and other irritants. The Skin Balancing toner balances my oily/combination skin and adds some light hydration. I use the 5% benzol peroxide treatment when I have stubborn acne (otherwise I use the 2.5% treatment twice a week). Finally, I use the Clear Oil Free Moisturizer every night to hydrate my skin without clogging my pores.
I love the creamy texture of this serum to add some extra hydration in the morning while also giving me my daily dose of vitamin C + ferulic acid + vitamin E.
When I need some extra hydration (in the winter months or when I’m using drying products like retinol or benzoyl peroxide), I add this essence to my skincare routine after toner and before serums. This essence has antioxidants and anti-aging properties, and also helps with the absorption of products that are layered on top of it.
I’ve tried countless hand creams, and most of them never deliver the deep moisturizing effects I require. Once I tried the Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Rich Body Butter as a hand cream, I never turned back. I keep several backups of this body butter on hand because I don’t ever want to be without it.
I always get tons of compliments when I wear this body butter. Not only does it smell divine, it also keeps my skin moisturized all day.
