Heyo! Today I have another collective haul from the month of September. It was school holidays and more free time = more opportunities to go shopping! Haha, I don't think I did too much damage, and some of these were repurchases!
First up for the skincare:
I recently won a giveaway from Jen over at The Shopping Queen. I won a pack of the Michika Complexion Synergist Rejuvenating Anti Fatigue Facial Mask (whew, what a mouthful!). This is a pack of sheet masks which contains a lot of great ingredients. I still haven't used the sheet masks I got from Daiso, so my first time was with these. I really enjoyed the experience, albeit a little creepy, but it left my skin feeling refreshed, moisturised and super smooth. Thankyou Jen and Michika!
I went a lil' crazy with the skincare at Priceline. A couple of sales combined with a voucher offer spurred on the purchases of the Indeed Labs Hydraluron and the Garnier Dark Spot Treatment Night. Hydraluron has garnered SO much hype, and it was 30% off (~$24) so I decided to get it. I haven't tried it yet, and to be honest I'm not really sure what to expect from it. The Garnier Dark Spot Treatment Night is a new product I believe as I've not heard a peep about it. It's a serum with vitamin C and 4% glycolic acid to help fade dark spots. You guys know how much I love the moisturiser, so I decided to give this a shot. It was also 20% off, bringing it to $15. I'll definitely let you guys know how this one goes! Priceline gave a $5 voucher if you spent over $35, however to redeem this voucher, you had to spend another $35 or more. Annoying huh? Anyways I ended up repurchasing the La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo (review here) as this is one of my holy grail products and I'm almost out of my current one. To get the $5 off, I bought a couple of other things you'll see later in the post.
The makeup-y things:
I actually didn't go too crazy with actual makeup but what I did buy was quite expensive...
I puchased the The Balm Instain Blush in the colour Toile. This was on my last wishlist and I was finally able to buy it. I was reluctant to hand over the full price of $26.95 (cringes) but The Balm hardly goes on sale. I've been using this so much since I got it, the colour really complements my complexion and so I think it was worth it! I'll have a full review up in due time!
Some nail stuff. I ended up getting another Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat in the shade Peach Fuzz in the Chemist Warehouse sale ($5). This one contains peach and yellow bar glitters which totally remind me of like a baby chick or duck. Cute! And perfect for Easter. I also got a couple of things from Witchery. It sounds like I shop there a lot, but I really don't! They had a survey going and if you completed it you got $10 of instore credit. My mum and I both did it but my mum didn't want to buy anything so I used hers also. I got this gorgeous nail polish in the shade Sweet Coral. It's a neon orangey-coral shade. It's super bright and realllllyyy eye catching on the nails. Awesome Spring/Summer shade! It was $12.95 so I got it for $2.95. I also got another Lip Gloss Wand because I LOVE my other one. This one is in the shade Tangelo which is a peach with golden glitter. It's a little sheerer than Blossom, the glitter isn't gritty, and it's still the same non-sticky formula. Also this one has a much better scent - a yummy vanilla and I wanna say coffee? scent. Full price this guy is $14.95, so I got it for $4.95.
I picked up another Nivea Lip Butter, this one in Vanilla & Macadamia. I bought this in my second Priceline trip. I've hit major pan on my first one and like I said in my Monthly favourites, this is the only lip balm my lips have been agreeing with! This one smells amazingly delicious also!
I repurchased the Essence Lash and Brow gel mascara. I pretty much used every last bit of my first one (it was gross and gunky too, plus the packaging broke). Love this for setting my brows, and it is super cheap at $3.50.
The miscellaneous items:
To make up the $35 for my second trip to Priceline, I bought the Nivea In-Shower body lotion. I've heard good things about this and I am SO lazy when it comes to moisturising my body. I didn't need it though...I was originally planning to pick up Bourjois Peach on the Beach, but they were sold out. So I ended up getting this - it was also on sale so it was around $7. They had also sold out of the intense version, but my skin isn't too dry. I've used this a couple times already and so far I really like it!
I repurchased both of the Beauty Care Co Makeup Remover pads and the Green tea facial wipes for $2 each. I'm not fussy at all and these are pretty much the cheapest you can get. However, I actually do REALLY like the face wipes.
I FINALLY managed to pick up a couple of the Daiso detergents for puff and sponge. Every time I go they are sold out of the stuff! They had a lot there so I bought two, they aren't completely full either. As everything is in Daiso, they were only $2.80 each and they work amazingly well. Just to mention, they changed the packaging from blue to pink.
So that was my haul! I still really want to buy the Bourjois lip crayon but I guess another time! I'm really trying to save for my trip to Hong Kong, and also my friend has offered to get me some things while she is in the US. I'm trying to formulate a wishlist, and it's very hard to cull products, haha!
Have you tried any of these products?
