Makeup Wars: Things I Rebuy

It’s time for another edition of “Makeup Wars”, and this time we are talking about items that we rebuy. Now, I try a lot of different things and don’t finish many – it’s just the nature of this site. So, if I repurchase it, then it means I really like it and need it in my life. Here are a few things that I need to keep around me on the regular:

Things I Buy Beautysets

1) Schick Intuition Naturals Razor – I don’t have a big shower (*and I’m lazy), so I like to be able to just make one swipe and shave my legs clean without the repeated lean down to lather up and THEN get to shaving.

2) Yes to Cucumbers Face Wipes – I love to keep these by my bed for those nights I didn’t do a full clean up routine (*did I mention I am lazy?). These smell so good and I have even been known to mail some across country to folks who didn’t have them available in their area. People need these wipes.

3) Clairol Root Touch-Up – I swear, my grays grow faster than my color can fade, which is saying a lot for a bottle redhead. So, pretty much every 3 weeks, I’m doing a quick touch-up with this stuff. FYI, I heard they are updating this with a new brush and rounded tray, but I’ll tell you more about that later.

4) Swisspers Cotton Rounds – I use rounds for so many things that I can’t stand to waste time with flimsy rounds that fall apart after one swipe or a smidge too much product on them. These rounds stay together and can handle every thing from removing glitter off of multiple nails to removing drag queen-like lashes after a night out without falling apart.

5) Suave Dry Shampoo – I don’t fix my hair much during the week – it’s pretty much ponytail city every day (*Yep, lazy). But I still don’t want it to look greasy and LOOK like I didn’t wash my hair, so I rock this stuff pretty often. It’s cheap and it smells so dang good, besides helping me not look entirely gross every day.

So, these are just some of the things that I rebuy, besides feminine hygiene and dental care products (*do you guys want to hear about that stuff? I didn’t think so. But if so, I can make you up a beautysets graphic stat! ;)). Tell me, what are some of the items you regularly repurchase for your routines?

And, after that, go see what the other lovelies repurchase for themselves, too:

    I think I need to check out the Suave Dry Shampoo! I use batiste but the Suave one is easier to get where I live. Thanks for the tip!!!

  2. I like that dry shampoo too! So great that there are affordable options now that are just as good as the crazy expensive ones.

  3. Beauty411 says:

    How could I have forgotten Clairol Root Touch Up?!? This is always on my “Target run” list!

  4. I’ve rebought the Yes to Cuke before too. I understand the need and obsession.

  5. I’m with ya on the Swispers but now that I read about Marcia’s DHC cotton, I may switch. I’ve repurchased the Yes to Blueberries wipes several times.

  6. Pammy Blogs Beauty says:

    Nice list! I didn’t have much luck with the Yes to Cucumbers wipes. While I liked the actual wipe, for some reason I just didn’t care for that scent.

  7. How did I leave off razors and Root Touch Up?

  8. Gouldylox says:

    Suave Dry Shampoo is one of my go to favorites! Once, my MIL, who is very wealthy, asked me several times to make sure I returned her dry shampoo when she left it at my house. When I went to check the closet to see what she had left behind, I was sure it was Oribe, or something extravagant. Nope. It was Suave Dry Shampoo. It’s good stuff.

  9. CarleenPruessCoulter says:

    I want to try those wipes now!!!!

  10. dangit I didn’t even think about my razor! That Gillette is a good one!

  11. Christa says:

    I love the Intuitions razors but I feel I go through them so fast!

  12. jbrobeck says:

    I am the same way with shaving – I hate having to keep shaving cream in the shower! I just wish those Intuition blades went on sale more often!

  13. Phyrra says:

    Oooh nice blades!

  14. Lola Seicento says:

    Excellent choices! It’s always wonderful to know what people like enough to repurchase again! I want to try the Schick Intuition Naturals!

  15. Lisamarie from Beauty Crazed says:

    I don’t know what I’d do without dry shampoo – well other then actually wash my hair but that’s just crazy talk! I’ll have to check out the Suave now!

    Best, Lisamarie

  16. […] Even trying so many new things, there are a few things that Paula, from Older Girl Beauty, buys over and over again. Check out what they are! […]

  17. Clairol root touch-up is marvellous stuff! I can totally understand this being a staple.
