I have been thinking about trying volition for awhile. Do you use any of their other products. Would you consider them okay for sensitive skin?

I haven’t tried anything else from them yet. I have sensitive skin, and I’ve had no adverse reactions. Other C serums I tried did, so I’ve stuck with Volition. They have sales often, too.

I’ve repurchased Belif True Cream Aqua Bomb and Belif The True Moisturizing Cream multiple times..I find Belif is a reasonably priced yet very effective skin care line…Their eye creams are great too…
I love Tatcha creams also, but wait for sales to repurchase since they are very pricey……..

Josie Maran unscented whipped argan body butter (for hands)

CV skinlabs calming moisture for face (no dimethicone, no breakouts!!!!)

Fresh soy cleanser. Classic for a reason.

Most of my skincare has been Paula’s Choice for years, so I won’t specify the brand, just th name of the products.

There are some products I simply lost count how many times I repurchased. The Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment would be a top product not only since it’s still my favorite retinol product (after 7-8 years), but also because I usually get the travel size (with strong actives I prefer to buy smaller sizes I can use up faster; a full size of the serum can last me more than an year).
I also repurchased many times the Youth Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50. There are products I have exclusively use, so once I finish them they’re immediately replaced with the same, like the Purifying Clay Mask.

There is also the category of products I have used countless times, but they are not a repurchase since I get them for free. One is the BHA exfoliant liquid mini, which is almost always a perk or gift with purchase from Paula’s Choice (at some point I had so many I gifted them or use it for the body). Also, everytime the Drunk Elephant Vitamin C serum is available as a free sample / offer / perk points item at Sephora, I get one, so I must have had at least 5 or 6 of those.

Honorable mention goes to Clinique Take the Day Off Balm. I definitely went through a tons of jars, but since nowadays I can find good enough balms in squeeze tubes, I prefer not to buy something I need to dip my fingers in.

Timeless CoQ-10 serum. I have been using it daily for at least six years. I also repurchase tretinoin when I run out but that is generic. I am not brand conscious when it comes to anything else so while I always replenish sunscreen, Vitamin C and niacinamide serums, moisturizer, and cleanser, it is never the same brand.

👆CE ferulic or biologique reserche 1970 formula
BB vitamin cream
Had homemade olive oil cleanser and oatmeal mask formulas

Very boring: garnier micellar water. How many years I am continuously repurchasing it? 7-8 years? How many bottles I used in a year? 5-7. So 40-50 bottles gone for sure. And I don’t plan to change this trend soon. It is he only makeup remover which doesn’t irritate my eyes, plus is one if the less expensive and world available product. With this exception, I like to try new products, and my skin has changed a lot lately, so rarely I repurchase a skincare product more than 2-3 times (more commonly I don’t repurchase at all)

There’s so many! So, here we go: The Ordinary Buffet, and when I could still easily get it, The Ordinary Retinol at the highest percentage, Ole Henriksen Truth Serum, Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic Acid & Retinol Eye Serum, Aveeno Calming Foaming Face Cleanser, Simple Cleansing Wipes, Hada Labo Skin Plumping Gel Cream, Drunk Elephant Protini Peptide Cream, and Inky List Caffeine Eye Cream.

CeraVe foaming cleanser. Paula’s choice 2% BHA. Timeless vitamin c serum. Youth to the people super food air whip moisturizer. Paula’s choice advanced replenishing toner.

After yesterday’s question, I thought you would ask this one – so I had a bit of a think last night.
My most repurchased skincare items are: cleansers – and I rotate them between CeraVe’s Hydrating cleanser, Swisse Sweet Almond, Essano’s Cream cleanser or Andalou’s Cleansing Milk.
Another skincare item I tend to repurchase a lot is The Ordinary’s Moroccan Argon Oil.
Again, with daily moisturisers and night creams I tend to rotate – A’kin Day and Night is one I have repurchased many times. I like Skin Physics and Skin Chemists products too.

For sunscreens – it’s either been Neutragena’s Hydro Boost SPF50 or La Roche Posay’s.

Clinique Take the Day Off cleansing balm. I just bought two new ones when there was a sale. Other than that, I honestly don’t repurchase a lot of products as there are always new, maybe better things to try.
