Whenever I go into any sort of drug store or grocery, no matter how perfectly crafted my shopping list, I always end up in the beauty products and I come out with way more than I intended. This happened for the millionth time last week and I am seriously so chuffed about all my new goodies! Some may say "it was the best haul everrrr…"
For a while I've been using the Clinique Take the Day Off makeup remover, but that got to be a bit expensive and I wanted to test out the drugstore alternatives. Even though this can leave a bit of oil around your eyes, it dried quickly and doesn't make my skin oily at all. I really love that the oil and water separate in the bottle because it provides a great science experiment. I find it works just as well as the Clinique version and my eyelashes are loving it!
Yes, I have gone and jumped on the lip butter bandwagon. These things are genus in a tube and I want them all. I have Berry Smoothie, which is a "my lips but better" type with just enough color, and Sugar Plum, which still looks very casual for everyday but has more berry tones. Think softness of a chapstick, color of a lipstick, and semi-glossy like a gloss…total obsession.
I hate using a bar of soap. For years I've been washing my body with shampoo because 1. I'm lazy and 2. Everyone using/ touching the same bar of soap day in and day out is very cringeworthy. The smell of this stuff is wonderful but super light and I find it to be very moisturizing. I love using it when I shower right before bed because it's just a super soothing scent.
I have been using a pore minimizing scrub for the past few months or so, but lately I feel like my skin isn't squeaky clean enough. I picked this up in the store because I use the lotion that goes with this and really love it…I'm also a sucker for the clean, simple packaging. As far as gentle goes, it isn't the gentlest as if I didn't moisturize after a shower I think my skin would be too dry, but as far as cleanliness goes, it's absolutely wonderful. My skin has been looking amazing since I started using it and I would really recommend it unless your skin is very dry! This will definitely be perfect for summer though!
Have you bought any stand out products lately?
