I recently stumbled upon a blog post by Jamie at  Perpetual Page Turner and I love her blog. It is all about books and life. Anyways, I loved her post about Five to Rebuy and five to Tray and it inspired me to write my own.

As you know, I love sharing about my favorite products, but even when I love something, I don’t always love it enough to find that I must rebuy it. I figured this post was a great way to share products that are so great I keep buying them. It is also a way to share things I am interested in and considering. Perfect for you to share your experience with that product.

 

Five to try

Jamie mentioned this RMS illuminator and I think it is finally time to get it. I have been hearing about it for some time and I think it might be a great way to brighten my dry, dull skin.

I have been hearing about the new Olay Whips moisturizer and  I want to give one a try. I have been using Cerave  for some time now but I would like to focus a little more on anti-aging now that I have entered my thirties.

I heard about this BB cream by Erborian this from @Karlareed on Instagram. She says it is a great basic all around face cream. Nice and light but does a lot of work for aging skin. It is a little bit pricy, but it sounds like it is worth it. Might be a great summer staple.

Ok, this one I technically already have, I just haven’t used it yet. This comes from a recommendation from Kate from the small things blog. I love gel manicures because they last so well, but sometimes I don’t have the time to do it at the salon or don’t feel like the price. This kit from Amazon is apparently amazing and my parents got it for me for Christmas. Hopefully I can use this at home in the evenings and save some time and cash. Once I try it a bit I will share my thoughts on it.

It seems like everyone has been talking about The Greatest Showman.  I was not even aware of the movie until everyone started talking about it all over social media. Bonus: Apparently the soundtrack is great and you can listen to it on Amazon.

 

Five to rebuy:

This hairspray stuff is worth every penny. I play around trying different hairsprays, but this one is always what I go back to.

I try not to use these all the time, but I love to have a simple face wipe available. They are perfect for a bedside table in case you forget to remove your makeup, or for travel/gym/busy days. I sometimes grab one and rip in into pieces to use a little at a time to remove foundation from my lips or messy under eye makeup after a shower.  Bonus: One box lasts FOREVER and they are super gentle. (Note: Costco is a membership store so you must be a member to purchase. Ask around, you may have friends/family that are members if you are not.)

I love Tarte mascara but had not tried this one until recently. It is for sure my new favorite. Lasts all day and looks great with only two coats.

This has been my go to concealer for a few years now. It does a great job and is under $5 on Amazon.

I also need to rebuy this e.l.f. primer. It makes my foundation application super smooth and makes my face feel like a baby’s bottom. If you deal with acne try their version with tea tree oil.
