November Drugstore “Haul”

 

IMG_1756

I call this is “haul” with quotation marks because I didn’t buy everything at once. I’ve purged a lot and focused on using up the things that I have which means there were some items that I needed to replace! Plus I found a few gaps in my makeup collection that just HAD to be filled 🙂 This is what I’ve picked up recently. Let me know if you’re interested in full reviews of anything!

Repurchased Items:

I ran out of shampoo & conditioner so I picked up (for the third time) some Live Clean Shampoo and Conditioner. I’ve talked about this brand a lot so I won’t bore you all with the details here but the short version is eco-friendly + Canadian brand = good. I also repurchased the Say Yes to Cucumbers facial wipes. They’re amazing and one of the few biodegradable facial wipes! I reviewed them here.

Amie Naturally Kind Facial Cleanser:

I was looking for my holy grail Pacifica Facial Cleanser but they were out of stock at Kardish so I decided to give this one a go. It was $9.99 at Shoppers. Unfortunately I didn’t look closely enough at the ingredients. Once I got home I found that there was perfume in it. It’s not high up on the ingredients list so I’m hoping it’s just a smidgen of perfume and won’t irritate me. I’m going to try it out anyway… we shall see!

Even MORE Live Clean:

I was at the Dollar Store with my Mom and I happened upon a small selection of Live Clean products for $3!! I grabbed the Eye Cream and the Facial Serum to try out. I found that the Eye Cream still sells at drugstores and online for about $19.99! Holy deal!!!

Eye Cream

The eye cream from Live Clean so far is much nicer than my previous eye cream from the Body Shop. I’ve been using it regularly and, so far, I find it absorb fast and it leaves no feel to my eye area. What I mean is that it doesn’t tighten my eye area, dry it out, or leave it feeling greasy. So far, so good!

Facial Serum

Normally a serum is supposed to be warn under a moisturizer. This one claims that you can wear it under moisturizer OR on it’s own! I find that odd. It’s not liquidy. It’s basically a light moisturizer. So far I’ve been enjoying wearing it under my moisturizer in the morning because it essentially just boosts up your moisturizer. It’s intriguing but I need more time to say anything conclusive about it.

A wee bit of an E.L.F. haul 

I’m getting so meta here… I have a haul within a haul! I also picked up a bunch of E.L.F. stuff. I’ve been on a bit of a kick lately.

And that’s it for my “haul!” I’m thinking of doing a follow up in a few weeks to talk about what works out and what doesn’t. Or I could just do full reviews of a particular item of interest. Let me know if there’s something that piques your interest specifically else I’m just going to do a follow up to my haul!
