I have many clothing items that I've owned for over a decade, but other things don't have the luxury of lasting that long. I'm talking about shoes that get worn down beyond recognition and T-shirts that succumb to dreaded yellow armpits, making it necessary to re-purchase on a somewhat regular basis. Then, of course, there are the beauty products that you wish would never run out but sadly always do.
I've always believed that the true mark of a great quality product is how often it gets repurchased by the same customers. It means they exhausted all of the product's useful life and still want more—and that's exactly the case with all of my favorite under-$50 products below. Scroll down to shop the fashion and beauty items I've bought more than once.
This is technically a facial scrub, but my face is a bit too sensitive so I use it as a body scrub in the shower. It's so good at exfoliating, it makes my skin feel like a baby's bottom. But don't take my word for it: over 1500 Sephora reviewers gave it five stars for the same reason.
My dry, frizzy, curly hair is obsessed with this nontoxic, moisturizing mask boasting avocado, kiwi, spinach, chia seeds, and cocoa-seed butter.
As I'm sitting here writing this story, I'm wearing one of these soft headbands from Amazon. Not only do I have a distracting habit of playing with my hair if it's not pushed back, but I also have bangs that need to be tucked away when I'm not styling them.
I own three of these classic crewneck T-shirts. This tee is not as soft as the Mott & Bow one above, but I love this one for a different reason: It has a really crisp neckline that looks very sleek under blazers for work. Heads up: They do run small, so I would consider sizing up.
