Okay! Moment of truth, I have a backup problem. If there is something I really really like and its difficult to come by, the odds are I’d always buy it in bulk. This most likely includes limited edition teases, or those which make an appearance once a year, or are usually not in stock, or something that I know I’ll run out of very quickly!
Here are my “backup-worthy” products.
Starting with the my holy grail moisturiser, La Roche Posay Toleriane Fluide! Learnt my lesson the hard way, and now I am never going to be without this! You are probably tired of me talking about this endlessly but This.Is.AMAZING! I use the Riche version at night but the Fluide is what I prefer out of the two. Its milky consistency and zero fragrance make it perfect for both day and night and right now its just this and nothing else on my skin! Love it!
The Most Annoying of them all! The Body Shop’s Atlas Mountain Rose Body Butter. The trickiest to track, comes back every year for a short time and sadly one that I adore! There have been so many instances when I have stepped into a TBS store asked for this, “not-in-stock”, turned around and left. The disappointment! I have been told this might come back around Christmas! *squeals*
The one I run out of the quickest is my Forest Essentials Rose Water Toner. I have mentioned it a couple of times, this is an all year product for me, irrespective of how dry or humid the weather. In summers I refrigerate this and use as many times as I possible can and it keeps my “temper in check” and also the skin hydrated and clear! For winters this is my toner every night after cleansing and these days I alternate between this and the Avene Thermal Spring Water Spray. I usually bulk buy it during a sale and a bottle lasts me around 2-3 months.
Reve de miel is my night time lip-balm, forever on the bed side, and right now, the only thing that I wear the whole day! I ran out of it and before the last layer was scraped I placed an order, for two! Just in case! This dinky pot holds a lot of product and my original tub lasted me almost a year but you see, someone else has gotten addicted to this as well and we may together finish this much sooner!
Another product both of us use is the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock. This is a simple no-fuss no-breakouts sunblock which is free from any fragrance and does exactly what it says! I have rarely strayed from this one but something always brings me back, its just so good! One of those I stock up on during a sale!
A few other things I try and “hoard” are my favorite L’occitane Shea Butter Soaps and Kerastase Anti-Cement Usure Conditioner. Both of them are on the high end spectrum of things but ones I absolutely cannot be without!
Is there anything you keep backups of? Let me know!
