Introducing The Most Repurchased Beauty Products TAG!

I love reading and watching tag posts and videos, and of course doing beauty tags on my blog, so I decided to create my very own, which I have named the "Most Repurchased Beauty Products TAG"! I think this is a great way to reflect back on the products that had, or still have an important place in our beauty routines. It is also interesting to see what brands come up more often than others!

I invite each and every one of you to do this tag! Make sure to leave a link to your take on the tag in the comments below so I can read/watch them! You are also welcome to use the photo above if you so desire! :)

A Copy/Paste form can be found at the end of this post to make filling these out a bit easier.
Here's how the tag works: next to each category, simply answer with your most repurchased product, or write N/A next to a category/product that you do not include in your routine (Please do not delete them so that others can fill them in if they do).

Here we go!



- Primer: L'Oréal Magic Perfecting Base - My very first face primer, but I have since found other ones that work better for my skin.
- Foundation: L'Oréal True Match Super Blendable Foundation in Soft Ivory - Still use this to this very day!
- BB/CC/DD (let's call it alphabet) Cream: Lioele Triple The Solution BB Cream SPF 30 PA++ (reviewed here) - It provides flawless coverage, I love using this in the summer when I want something more lightweight.
- Concealer: L'Oréal True Match Concealer in Fair/Light Neutral - I know, I know - what can I say, L'Oréal was a long time favorite of mine, but I have since branched out and tried other brands, although I still very much like this concealer for its full coverage!
- Powder: Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Transparent (hauled here) - Hands down the best from the drugstore!
- Blush: Wet n Wild Pearlescent Pink (hauled here) - Gives my cheeks a lovely, light pink flush, with a hint of shimmer.
- Bronzer: Rimmel Sunshimmer Shimmering Maxi Bronzer in Sun Kiss - The top layer is sprayed with shimmer strips, which quickly fade after a few uses. The pan is huge and this bronzer lasted me for the longest time, and I loved it so much that I got another!
- Highlighter: Wet n Wild Bronzer SPF 15 in Reserve Your Cabana (reviewed here) - Such a gorgeous product! Although it is marketed as a bronzer, it certainly is more of a highlighter. I always reach for it, even more than any of my "high end" highlighters...LOVE!
- Makeup Setting Spray: MAC Fix + (reviewed here) - I love how it just locks all my makeup and makes everything blend out nicely.

- Primer: mark Please Hold Eye Primer - Evens out my eyelid and makes the shadows stick like glue!
- Eye Shadow (Powder/Cream): Wet n Wild Color Icon Trio in Walking On Eggshells (hauled here) - Mini palette featuring: a shimmery cream, brown, and rose-gold shade. Definitely most-reached for in my stash.
- Mascara: Covergirl LashBlast Fusion - I love constantly trying out new mascaras, but this one I always go back to every now and then.
- Eye liner (Liquid, Pencil, Gel): Covergirl Liquiline Blast Pencil in Brown Blaze -  Love that it comes with a smudge tip for when I want more of a smoky effect.
- Brow Definer: Wet n Wild Color Icon Brow & Eye Liner in Taupe - Nothing beats this in my opinion. Super creamy, it simply glides on. I also like how I can build its intensity by controlling how hard I press.
- Brow Gel: Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Clear - I cannot even tell you how many times I've repurchased this! It does a fabulous job at holding my eyebrows in place throughout the day.

- Lip Balm/Tinted Lip Balm: EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm in Summer Fruit - I am seriously obsessed with this scent! The cute packaging definitely is a factor as well.
- Lipliner: Rimmel Lasting Finish 1000 Kisses Pencil in Natural - This one is perfect paired with nude/light pink lipsticks!
- Lipstick/Lip Stain/Lip Butter: Rimmel Lasting Finish in Airy Fairy - My favorite "my lips but better" lipstick.
- Lipgloss: Essence XXXL Shine in Sparkling Papaya - A peachy pink with slight shimmer and a light fruity scent.
- Lip Scrub: LUSH Mint Julips (reviewed here) - I cannot go very long without this stuff! Beats any homemade lip scrub I've tried too.


- Moisturizer: Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15 - Been using this for ages! It is dermatologist recommended (and not just "tested"). Lightweight, oil and fragrance-free, it gets absorbed into the skin in under a minute!
- Cleanser: Simple Moisturizing Facial Wash - Super gentle and non-irritating and perfect to use with a sonic face brush such as the Clarisonic.
- Exfoliator/Scrub: The Body Shop Honey & Oat 3-in-1 scrub mask - I used to use this for the longest time but it eventually started irritating my face so I had to find an alternative.
- Toner: Nivea Soothing Toner - I really liked this back in the day, but have since resorted to using Witch Hazel (benefits here).
- Makeup Remover: Nutiva Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil - It just melts everything off!
- Serum: Indeed Labs Hydraluron Moisture Booster (reviewed here) - I use this under my Cetaphil moisturizer to keep my skin hydrated all day long!
- Mask: Freeman Mint & Lemon Facial Clay Mask - So cheap and effective! Really gets deep down into the pores and gets rid of those impurities, while leaving the skin extra smooth.
- Spot Treatment: Lush Grease Lightning - I like that it is all natural, and also that it has a tightening effect. Reduces my facial redness overnight too.
- Pore Strips: Bioré Deep Cleansing Pore Strips - They simply get the job done!
- Eye Cream: I use good ol' Nutiva Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil at bedtime and let it works its magic overnight.
- Hand Cream: Glysomed Hand Cream - I love any cream that has chamomile!
- Body Lotion: Olay Quench Daily Lotion - A holy grail product, keeps my skin moisturized for the longest time.
- Sunscreen: Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch SPF 30 - Lightweight and oil-free, and it smells amazing too!
- Self Tanner: Jergens Natural Glow +Firming Daily Moisturizer - Gradually builds a healthy-looking tan and hydrates my skin too!


- Shampoo/Conditioner: Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition - This line has the best hair care products!
- Dry Shampoo: TRESemmé Fresh Start Volumizing - It has a very light scent and it really works.
- Leave In Treatment: Infusium23 Moisture Replenisher - Gives my hair that extra nourishment in times of need.
- Detangler: I use the above Infusium23 Moisture Replenisher when my hair becomes unmanageable too.
- Hair Mask: Nutiva Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (benefits here) - Coconut oil takes the prize again (gotta love products that multitask!)
- Hair Oil: Organix Penetrating Morroccan Argan Oil (reviewed here) - Still use this to this very day, and it's been over 3 years! It smells amazing and gets absorbed very quickly.
- Hair Spray: Garnier Fructis Hold & Flex Extra Strong Non-Aerosol Spray - I like that it doesn't leave my hair feeling crunchy, plus it really holds my style in place for a long time.
- Heat Protectant: TRESemmé Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray - I always make sure to spray some of this on before blow drying or heat styling my hair.
- Styling Product (Mousse, Gel, Serum): Dove Style + Care Nourishing Curls Mousse (reviewed here) - I like using this whenever my hair is looking dull and want to give my naturally wavy locks extra definition and volume.


- Base/Top Coat: Revlon Multi-Care Base and Top Coat - I really notice my manicures/pedicures lasting longer when I use this, more than other brands I've tried.
- Cuticle Cream/Oil: Sally Hansen Vitamin E Hand & Cuticle Oil - I apply this at night before bed and wake up with super hydrated nail beds!
- Nail Polish: Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear in Violet Voltage (reviewed here) - After just one coat, this stuff is fully opaque! Very easy application too.
- Nail Polish Remover: Sally Hansen Strengthening Formula - Easily removes nail polish, I rarely have to actually scrub as simply wiping gets the job done.


- Deodorant: Degree Expert Protection motionSENSE in Active Clean - Claims to be motion activated, which in my experience holds true. I've tried so many others and this one is definitely the best.
- Body Wash/Shower Gel: Softsoap Shea Body Butter Hydrating Body Wash - I can't get enough of this scent! It smells amazing!
- Hand Soap (Liquid/Bar): Softsoap Moisturizing Shea Butter Liquid Hand Soap - My hands smells like shea butter for the longest time after washing them with this!
- Razor: Gillette Venus Refillable Breeze Razor - I bought this razor a while back and only need to repurchase the blade heads. It gives a very close cut, and I like that it also comes with a built-in solid cream that gets activated under water and provides a nice lather.
- Shaving Cream/Gel/Wax Kit: Skintimate SignatureScents Moisturizing Shave Gel - This one gives the best lather in my opinion without having to use up too much product.
- Toothbrush: Oral-B Vitality Pro White Electric Toothbrush - As this is a rechargeable toothbrush, I only repurchase the brush head every few months.
- Toothpaste: Crest 3D White Vivid Toothpaste - I like how it keeps my teeth white, and I like the flavor too.
- Teeth Whitening Strips/Kit: Crest 3D Whitestrips Professional Effects - I use this every 6 months for 20 days to maintain a white smile. This kit does make my teeth a little sensitive in the last week, but the sensation quickly goes away a few days after finishing the treatment.
- Floss: Reach Mint Waxed - It's simple the best!
- Mouthwash: Crest Pro-Health Complete Rinse in Fresh Mint - I like that it is alcohol-free and that it contains fluoride.
- Tongue Cleaner: Orabrush + Tongue Foam - Everyone should own this!


- Body Spray: Dove Go Fresh Body Mist in Rebalance (reviewed here) - I keep this with me on the go, it smells both floral and fruity and the scent lasts for hours!
- Scented Lotion: Victoria's Secret Amber Romance Hydrating Body Lotion - this one sadly got discontinued... words cannot even describe how lovely this smelt!
- Perfume: Victoria's Secret Dreams Angels Forever - this one is also no longer available. Still haven't found one that even compares to it.

  1. Great idea for a post! We use a lot of the same products... Rimmel and L'Oreal are staple brands in my beauty routine! Hope you're having a great weekend :)

    Diary of a Debutante

  2. This is an awesome idea! The L'Oreal Magic Perfecting Base was my first primer as well. The Hawaiian Tropic sunscreen is my favorite because of the scent. I love Dove body mists, I used to use them all the time in high school. I will definitely be doing this tag soon. :)

  3. Wow that was a long list but I understand why you like a lot of those products!


  4. That was a biiig list, but it's a great idea for a tag :) you really like coconut oil, don't you? X

  5. Brilliant Idea. I don't feel like I'm qualified to answer this yet but when I do I shall let you know! x


  6. I really enjoyed this tag! There are so many products that I would repurchase all the time back when I first started wearing makeup, but now I really like to explore new products all the time! :)


  7. Woah you have a lot of them! I very rarely repurchase stuff, always trying out new things.

  8. love the sally hansens nail products too!

  9. Oooh this is a great tag! I need to give this a go xx

  10. What a fun tag! I'm a fan of the Wet-N-Wild eyeshadows trios and Reserve Your Cabana too!

  11. Oh good gosh, I think if anything, this demonstrates how many products women actually have...for vanity LOL ;-;
    I'm guilty of not using my Wet n Wild products enough (esp. the highlighter + Pearlescent Pink), so I think I need to incorporate them back into my makeup routine!
    I've also been meaning to try Rimmel's lipliners, since they're so inexpensive, and apparently it's the best at the drugstore.
    UGH, DON'T YOU HATE HOW FREQUENTLY VICTORIA'S SECRET PHASES OUT FRAGRANCES?? Some of them are GEMS, but it makes me sad that they discontinue fragrances so often :(

  12. I have tried out many different types of nail polishes, but only own 1 Sally Hansen one. I kind of want to give the brand another try, especially since you seem to love several of S.H. polishes.

  13. long list dear ! but i liked the stuff that you have in your list :) xx

  14. Im going to have to try that Wet n Wild Highliter. It looks gorgeous and you just can't beat that price!!

  15. Ohh this is such an amazing tag! I need to try one of the lush lip scrubs!

  17. I'm a Canadian too!! I'm so glad to be co-hosting the Wake Up Wednesday blog hop with you! I'm
    PS - we'll have to email later - us Canucks have to stick together :-)

  18. This is an awesome idea! Thanks for sharing. I love using Cetaphil. I use their gentle skin cleanser and it works wonders on my sensitive skin.

  19. I'm a fan of ELF, so if it works then I buy it. Otherwise, I have no purposeful repurchase. It all depends on how I'm feeling and how much money is in my pocket.

  20. What a nice tags! We have a few in common-- this is my first time with the Rimmelstay matte and I love love love it! I can't believe I didn't get it before :)
    I also like covergirl mascaras and the L'oreal true match line :)


  21. We love this tag! This is exactly the types of tags we love since were product junkies! So creative too! Just found your blog through a comment you left on our blog and now were joining your hop! So glad to have some new blogs to read!!!! :)))
