Hey guys! So I finally got a late paycheck after 11 days, and ordered my birthday present (it was from the boyfriend, but ofcourse I ordered it). Anyways, I treated myself to some new stuff, mostly some necessities, and some new candles!
So while my mom was waiting for her prescription at Shoppers, I did some shopping! I've been trying to get a perfect face ritual that works for me. I had been using Clean and Clear Facial Scrub and Facial Cleanser, as well as Boire Pore Minimizing Face Wash. The Boire is doing nothing for my skin. The Clean and Clear duo has helped a little, no break outs or blemish, but my skin as still been oily, isn't helping black heads or my complexion. I had been using Dove Energy Glow Moisturizer, but am retiring it until summertime. I also use Neautrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Cream SPF 15, but only days I'm out in the sun. So my new line up is Olay Total Effects Nourishing Cream Cleanser and St. Ives Apricot Scrub. I've heard a lot of good things about the cream cleanser, and since it was on sale I decided to pick it up (regular $18.99 CAD on for $13.99 CAD). I also used to use the St. Ives Apricot Scrub on my face in the past, and it was amazing for me! I really don't know why I stopped using it. For night cream and for days I don't go out, I got Neutrogena Moisture Oil Free for combination skin. I've also heard a lot of great things about the oil free line they have.
I also got a few other things. All of the Got2Be hair products were on sale for $3.99 CAD, and my mother swears by them, so I figured I'd give them a try. I decided to try the Fat-Tastic Thickening Mousse, since I'm always trying to find something to pump my volume up when my extensions aren't in. For days they are in, and I don't need extra volume, I got Smooth Operator Smoothing Mousse. I've always been meaning to get something to protect my hair before I iron or blow dry it, so I'm giving the Guardian Angel Heat Protect lotion.
For the longest time, I've been hearing about the Soap & Glory line. It's kind of pricey, but the Flake Away Body Polish was on sale (regular $12.99 CAD, on for $9.99 CAD), so I decided it's time to try it out.
The nail polish wasn't all me! I have a 2 1/2 year old daughter, and she LOVES nail polish. While I was looking at face wash and cream, she grabbed the Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Extreme Wear in Strobe Light. It's a super sparkley nailpolish in a pinkish hue, and on top of another colour is a very chunky flaky sparkles, and has a very neat look. Since I was already in the isle, I grabbed the Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro in Violet Metal. The two look great together! I also picked up the Rimmel Lasting Finish Base and Top Coat.
Last but not least, there's that white box! It's a tooth whitening system I've never heard of, Sanaswiss. It was on clearance for $5, so I figured I'd give it a try.
I also ordered from Sephora!! I ordered the Sephora Favorites LastStash Mascara Deluxe Sampler, Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Lip, Sephora Tricks of the Trade Eyeshadow Transformer (turns eyeshadow into eyeliner), Sephora Mineral Foundation + Mineral Matte Setting Powder, and Vanilla Cupcake Body Oil. I was really hoping to get a few more of those box sets like LashStash, but they were all sold out. I'm also so mad! The weekly specials are so much better today than yesterday! I got a free face cream, today was a Lancome mascara and make up remover!
I also made an order with Partylite for the Forbidden Fruits tealight sampler, the 16 piece votive sampler, a huge Caramel Pear Brulee candle, two of those break away melts (banana leaf and tamboti, tamboti smells like sexy men), and the cutest tealight holder!
Anyways, that's it and that's all! It was a fun shopping day yesterday!
