To Repurchase or Not To Repurchase?

Monday, 27 May 2013

When it comes to purchasing products, I rarely stick to what I know. It usually takes me a while to finish a product, so by the time it rolls around to needing a new cleanser/foundation/blusher/anything I can find an excuse to buy, I'm usually ready to try something new. I think I suffer from grass is greener syndrome, or something to that effect. Rummaging through my ever-growing stash of skincare and cosmetics, I was slightly embarrassed to discover that I have only ever repurchased two products - TWO. It appears that I'm just as fickle as I feared I was when it comes to product loyalty.

LUSH Tea Tree Water is a product that I used to use years ago, but drifted away from and recently rediscovered over Christmas when I worked at LUSH. I didn't instantly repurchase this, I have to admit. As much as I liked it and had a little panic when it ran out, I dabbled in a few toner samples I had kicking about in my skincare drawer. Unfortunately since I stopped using this toner, I've suffered from a horrible breakout on my chin. I promptly ran to LUSH and repurchased this, and my skin is already thanking me for it. My skin seems to just love the antibacterial properties of tea tree in just the right concentration that this toner water offers. I promise I won't stray again!

Ah, Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer... I'm actually sick of hearing those 4 words stringed together in one sentence, but I am indeed a member of the fan club. Everyone and their dog seems to swear by this concealer and since I tried it last year, I haven't even bothered trying any other concealers - which is a mean feat for a beauty blogger, by anyone's standards. It just does the job for me. It covers my blemishes and any other areas of redness like a treat, although I do find it slightly too thick for the under-eye area. I'm on my 3rd tube of this and I can't see myself abandoning it any time soon. At £4-odd a pop, it's hardly breaking the bank and it ticks the boxes I need it to.

Which products do you always repurchase? Are you as fickle as I apparently am?!


  1. These are two products I know I'll always repurchase, they both work so well for me! xo

  2. I've been looking for a new toner! I honestly didn't even know Lush did toners. I like how it has tea tree in aswell.
    Definitely going to have to go and purchase this! Skincare can sometimes be so expensive, this one isn't near as expensive as any of my past ones!

  4. I found the Collection concealer was too orangey for me! I think the products I repurchase are the Naked Detox Shampoo, Naked Heat Defender, S&G Breakfast scrub and Benefit That Gal! xxx

  5. I loooooooooove the Collection Concealer, such a great, cheap product!:)

  8. I always rave about the Lasting Perfection Concealer to my friends but none of them seem to understand! I'm glad I've found a fellow member of the fan club :D The Tea Tree Toner sounds like it'd be perfect for my skin as well so I'm going to have to keep an eye out for it!

    Love, Hails x |

  9. I have been wanting to get the tree toner for ages, hope it works for me too. Have you tried the grease lightening spot treatment from lush? xxx

    1. Yeah! I used to use it years ago, tried it again at beginning of year but meh, I wasn't particularly wowed. x

  10. I won't be without ELEMIS pro collagen marine cream or a pot a tee tree oil. Serious anxiety if my reserve stash runs low :) I recently finished the Lush Tea Tree Toner and thought it was just 'nice' I much prefer the body shop tea tree toner though :)

    Love Kate at prettylittleus


  11. I'm such a fickle soul! I have a hard time choosing which products to buy in the first place and the alternate ones get stuck in my head. Not to be the devil on your shoulder,d but if you liked the Collection concealer you'll love the NARS radiant creamy concealer!

    Great post!

  12. I use breath of fresh air instead but I do love it and will repurchase. I love keeping it in the fridge because in the mornings it's so refreshing! I liked the concealer but I haven't gotten round to repurchasing it, I'm trying to reduce the ammount of products I use on my face x

  13. I haven't tried the toner but I love the concealer too...just like everyone else.

  14. I keep reading about that concealer, I'm yet to purchase it though. I think I'll have to jump on the bandwagon soon!!

  15. I cannot imagine my life without both these products. They are amazing. xx
