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!
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!!!
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!
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!
PS – I’d like to give a special thanks to my cat Joey. He supervised the photos 🙂
