I’ve done so much shopping the last couple of weeks, it’s not even funny, more specifically I got a lot of skincare and a few bits of make up so I thought it would be fun to haul them for you, mostly because I LOVE HAULS! Everything I got was very affordable, because, although I think it’s important to invest in your skincare, more than in make up, it’s true that you don’t have to break your bank account to find great items… In fact, some of the things in this haul are repurchases.
I’m going to test everything out and in THREE WEEKS I will post an update and a review of each product shown. So, make sure to come back for the UPDATES!
I’ll try to find links for everything I’ve shown to make it easier for you as well.
Starting with skincare everything I got was brand new or almost: first thing is the L’Oréal Micellar Water for Normal to Dry Skin, I’m such a fan of Bioderma and I’ve been using it religiously since 2012, but I wanted to try something new and, since I’m a huge fan of L’Oréal skincare, I thought “why not?”. On the same line, I got the L’Oréal Fine Flowers Cleansing Milk to get rid of make up and cleanse the skin. I also got L’Oréal Hydra Genius Moisturiser for Combination & Normal Skin I LOVE this thing, in fact, it’s a repurchase, it’s very hydrating but still lightweight and perfect for my oily skin. It’s infused with Hyaluronic Acid that I found works wonders for my skin. Lastly, I got the Garnier Moisture Bomb Pomegranate Hydrating Face Sheet Mask because my skin was feeling quite dry after all the acne treatments I’ve been doing lately and sheet mask are also a lot of fun! I’m always on the hunt for a great moisturizing mask for oily skin and this one it’s very nice, not too heavy yet really hydrating. Any suggestion is welcome.
I’m a sucker for shampoo that smells nice and the Ultimate Blends line from Garnier is one of my favourite (I swear by the Vanilla and Papaya one) so when I saw this new Coconut Water and Aloe Vera scent and after a sneaky sniff in the store I fell in love with it. It’s really sweet yet very fresh. I don’t have many hair issues so I don’t have to be really specific with what I use as long as it’s not too heavy. The other product it’s a conditioner, I usually match shampoo and conditioner but my store was out of the second from the Ultimate Blends line and this one was soooo intriguing that I HAD TO TRY IT! It’s the Pantene Foam Conditioner Repair & Protect, it’s actually a mousse that it’s supposed to moisturize but not be heavy, So excited to try it!
I really needed a fan brush for my highlighter and this Kiko Fan Brush (N° 12) was on sale for 30% so far, I can tell it’s really soft but I haven’t tried it yet, the other product is the Kiko Shine Refine Papers my favourite blotting sheets, I’ve gone through at least six of these and I love them, I run out of my old pack and again they were 20% off so I took advantage of that.
Next, I got the Essence Instant Matt Setting Spray, it sounds too good to be true and I can’t wait to test it out. I love white toes nails in the summer time and I love Essence nail polishes, this specific colour is N°33 Wild White Ways, it seems super opaque and a good base to make other shades pop. Essence hardly mistaken with mascaras (they tent to dry faster but they are also really inexpensive) and this one seems no exception: it’s called Volume Stylist 18h Curl and Hold mascara. First, of I adore the brush, second it’s very black and third the packaging it’s pink, what else can you ask for? Oh yes, I tried it once and it looked amazing and it did what it claimed to do. I need more time to test it out but I REALLY like it so far. You can see it in action here.
I’ve heard only great things about the NYX Slim Lip Pencils so I decided to get two shades, more specifically I got Nude Beige, which is very 90’s and it will look beautiful underneath MAC Whirl lipstick (that’s really why I got it) and Nude Pink, my perfect MLBB shade, great for everyday use and it’s really pretty on its own or with a touch of lipbalm on top.
Lastly, I went to Sephora and since they are discontinuing Formula X, their nail polishes were super discounted (5€ for one and 1€ the following ones). I got one Effect Top Coat and two Nail Colors, I couldn’t find them online so check your stores to see if they have some left
