What's the worst thing that could possibly happen to a beauty girl not trying to spend money? Answer; all her skincare products run out at the same time! Usually my skincare products will run out a month apart from each other allowing me to spread out my purchases, but not this month! My cleanser and moisturizer were just gone and my toner is on its last little spritzes! So I went over to Sephora with my sister on Monday to finally pick them up. I didn't repurchase my ol' faithful LUSH Ultrabland Cleanser or Imperialis moisturizer because while I do love them, I wanted to see if there was something else! If my new products don't work out for me I'll most definitely just switch back to my old routine, but change is good, right? I also picked up two little extras that weren't exactly on my list, but hey! This is considerably good when you think about how much I used to spend! Enough blabber from me, here's what I got!
- Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser | Since I wasn't going to stick with my LUSH cleanser I wanted to branch and try out something new. I used Spehora's handy dandy product finder and this one came up for acne/blemishes and blackheads. The reviews were all really good so it's got my hopes up! People actually saw their black heads getting smaller and less frequent blemishes, but only time will tell! I've used this three time already and the one thing that stands out is that it heats up!!! How cool is that?!
- Clinique Moisture Surge | I
stoleused some of this moisturizer when I didn't have mine at a friend's house and it worked so well! It sinks into the skin quickly and moisturizes really well! I have had time to use this and the only thing I'm debating is if I should have gotten the intense moisture relief because my skin is quite dry and the cleanser is drying as well :/ May swap this one out!
- Korres Mango Lip Butter | Okay, this was a tad cheeky purchase. (I can see why some of you think I'm English) I never fell for the hype on these lip butters as I have a ton of lip balms and butters. That was until my best friend got an entire set of these for Christmas and I played with them more closely. There's something so cute and fun about them! I got the Mango one because it smelled the best to me!
- Striped Buckled Crossbody Bag | I didn't go to the mall intending to walk out with a new bag. I knew I needed one because my current one has a popped zipper and a teared out magnet. I have my Rebecca Minkoff crossbody but it's bright, neon orange so a tad inapropro for the winter. Anywho, we walked into Forever21 and I saw this gem and I knew I had to have it. I needed a new bag, I've always wanted this 'type' of square bag, and it's striped in blue and white! How nautical! I love it to bits already and can't wait to break it in!
A small, but very thought out haul. It feels good knowing I'll get loads of use out these things, so I feel less guilty for spending my money. If you've used any of these products, let me know how you got on! I know everyone raves about the Korres Lip Butters so it's nice to finally have one!
What have you hauled recently?
