Ok, lets move on with the haul!! =]
|This is what I hauled lately, I'm still waiting for a few packages in the mail so I will keep you guys posted on those when they arrive =].|
|Skinsonic by Sirius, people call it a Clarisonic dupe. You can purchase this HERE for only $50 CAD instead of $200 for the Clarisonic!!|
|Shiseido - Best facial cotton pads, 100% cotton! since it's so expensive ($8 CAD) I usually tear them in half to make two slim rectangles instead of one big square so I use 50% less each time =].|
|Travalo - Easiest refillable atomizer ever, only $12.99 CAD. Can also be found online and at Sephora but prices are higher.|
|Clinique Blended Face Powder and Brush in Transparency 2, $24 CAD for 1.2 oz/35 g, not bad for a setting powder with a ton of product, this jar is gigantic! Recommended by Paula Begoun on Beautypedia. It's totally my fault to forget that Paula warned us not to get Transparency 2 since the colour is kind of pinkish/white so I'll have to use a light hand when using this. Or I can use this as a non-glitterry highlight with a heavier hand. Dislike the prickly retractable brush.|
|A bad swatch LOL, the flash washes the colour out but you cab kinda see the whitish swatch near the knuckle.|
|Both product also recommended by Paula Begoun.|
Olay Regenerist Eye Lifting Serum, $34.99 CAD, got it on sale for $25.99 CAD 15ml: read her review HERE. Once again I totally forgot that Paula said this eye serum contains a light pigments and shimmers from Mica which can cosmetically diminish the look of your dark circles. So I don't love this fact when I'm wearing it to sleep because it makes me feel as if I still have makeup on! Next I want to buy the Lab Series Eye Rescue for night usage and keep this Olay one for day time only.
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Face Sunscreen SPF 45, $16.49 CAD 88ml: read her review HERE. I think my acne scars are still lingering after using Paula's Choice Clear Anti-Acne System is because I wasn't using a proper sunscreen that actually works = ( so I'm going to give this a try and see what happens.
*Can get these at Wal-Mart for a cheaper price*
|Left swatch : Olay Eye Serum, starts off as a white cream then turns into a silky, nude in colour, shimmery serum.|
Right swatch: Neutrogena sunscreen, almost dries to a powdery finish =].
|Soap & Glory Scrub 'EM and Leave 'EM body scrub, 300 ml. They ran out of the one I usually buy (Soap & Glory Flake Away Body Scrub, $9.99 CAD) so I thought I'd give this a try, $14.99 CAD.|
|Super CUTE!! it's PINK!! with small pink beads. Smells so good as well I can't wait to try this!|
|These two are gonna be FREE!! after I get my rebates back. You can get these for free too!! It is Physicians Formula's Eye Booster 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner +Serum in Ultra Black, $16.99 CAD and Organic Wear Jumbo Lash Mascara in Black, $17.99 CAD. You can pick these up for for less at Wal-Mart but remember to make sure they both have the red sticker that says "Full price Rebate". Go to Physicians Formula for the rebate forms, print and fill them out then send to the corresponding address found on the rebate form with the original receipt highlighting the products and also including the "full price rebate" red sticker to get a full rebate. Make sure to double check the barcodes with the list of qualifying product found on the rebate site because they don't include all colours from the same line, for example, mascara in the colour brown is not included. And make sure to get your rebate forms in the mail by DECEMBER 15th, 2011. They also have four(4) other products that has a $6 rebate. Pretty awesome right? =]|
|The best eyeliner and mascara (haven't tried it yet). Instead of getting this eyeliner and serum combo, you can also pick up the one that is only a clear serum without the black ink. The serum claims to improve your lashes making the grow more, thicker, longer and fuller lashes but according to Paula's review, none of the ingredients are proven to cause any increase of lash growth.|
|Comparing the wide packaging of Physicians Formula with my favourite Covergirl LashBlast Mascara.|
|Although Physicians Formula is wider than Covergirl's mascara, it is also thinner so it feels quite nice when holding it.|
|Both mascara look similar but the Physicians Formula has a bigger, rounder brush with lesser bristle than the Covergirl LashBlast. Not waterproof.|
