Haul: OPI – Hey Baby, It Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye Concealer and Bye Bye Pores (I think?) HD powder, Real Techniques Complexion Sponge

Plans: Uhh, study Mandarin as usual, work on blogging and YT stuff. Trying to get a video uploaded today, actually.

Favourite cold drink: Mr. Brown Iced Coffee, a Taiwanese brand of coffee.

brought that bye bye back, but i use the IT corrector like i breathe. that concealer in medium was too putty-like in color. you look as if you don’t need something so heavy duty.

lol Mellan & his new toys

Haul: I was naughty this week. I couldn’t help it w/ the Memorial Day sales.
Senna Cosmetics – Color Envelope, Warm Envelope, Brow Palette, Mineral Lift Eye Powder
Sephora – NARS toner, Sephora glass nail file, Too Faced Holy Grail kit (Better Than Sex Mascara & Chocolate Soliei – both repurchases) GWP – NARS 500 points perk, YSL 500 points perk, Formula X Thrilling deluxe sample, First Aid Beauty cleanser deluxe sample, BE Skinny Dip bronzer deluxe sample, Prada perfume roller ball (I feel like there is one more deluxe sample I’m forgetting)
Weekend plans: HW :/
Favorite cold drink?: Summer Drinks – Iced Coffee & Panera iced green tea

I am so looking forward to the Le Rouges!
I haven’t bought anything this weekend.. again! Saving some funds for the upcoming trip! Weekend plans are centered around blogging! Favorite drink is mango shake! Oh I love mangos!

Haul: Fyrinnae eye shadows – Conjurer, Hitched, Rapunzel Had Extensions, Crimson Ghost, Devilish Debutante, and Wizards Wedding Cake.

Weekend Plans: Finishing a furniture building project.

Favorite Cold Drink: Always a beer!

Haul: Celebrated the end of my no-buy with Marc Jacobs Style Eye-Con No. 7 “The Siren” Palette! Also picked up Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector, YSL Rouge Voluptรฉ in Opera Rose, a MAC 219 pencil brush and some Julep nail polishes.
Weekend plans: Plant some flowers. Weed the gardens. Figure out some technology contraptions to start doing video makeup tutorials. Write a food blog post.
Favorite cold drink?: Definitely a mocha frappuccino. Though… I reach for a plain ol’ fresh-brewed iced tea more often than not!

I did!!! And I love it! I kind of refer to it as my ‘watercolor, sophisticate’ brights vs. Urban Decay’s in-your-face Electric Palette. I think the Marc Jacobs palette turns out very refined-looking eye makeup that can be as bold or as wearable as you want to make it. I’m really enjoying this! And I would happily recommend it to people who aren’t so sure about using brights but want to start incorporating color into their lives.

YAY! I’m so glad you’ve had great luck with it, Larissa. I really agree – it is a great option for someone who finds traditional brights TOO bright or difficult to work with. The shimmery finishes of the MJB palette also make it easier to work with and blend, IMO! Matte brights can be trickier if they don’t work well naturally (e.g. yellow into orange is easy, but yellow into blue can be more difficult).

My boyfriend looks forward to seeing your Mellan photo every week. He can’t wait until we’re able to get a dog! He’s got his heart set on a lab.

Mellan looks gorgeous playing with all those toys. A big hug for him from me and the boys. I got some toys for the boys at Petsmart last week.
Purchased Alpha Hydrox 10%Glycolic lotion and Neutrogena rapid repair retinol at Ulta.
Continue painting the house, give Rowdy a bath, see A Million ways to die in the west Sun.
Champagne but reality Monster energy drink.

Oh man those puppy dog eyes…just makes me melt! Can’t wait to see reviews of the Givenchy Le Rouge shades. Rose Tafettas was drying on me, but I don’t want to give up on the whole line yet.

Haul: MAC Bright Sunshine, Vanilla, and Cranberry eyeshadows.
Weekend plans: Watch TV, Relax, and think about if I want to apply for a new position at work, deadline is Sunday.
Favorite cold drink?: Starbucks Caramel Frappuccino, or a Virgin Piรฑa Colada.

Haul: Mac lipsticks, real techniques beauty brushes, some concealer and blush! Huge makeup haul!
Weekend Plans: Wedding with a friend and more blogging! Im also so behind!
Favorite Cold Drink: Arnold Palmer which is lemonade mixed with Iced tea. So refreshing!

Haul: Got my MAC AA order (Siren Song, Goddess of the Sea), picked up MAC’s Gold Mirror and Mirror yesterday.
Weekend plans: Laundry? Oh, GOOD plans? A bit of writing. Perhaps a surprise date with the Gentleman. He’s earned it after a rough week.
Favorite cold drink?: Too much to choose from! Sometimes you just need a beer, or iced coffee, or peach tea. Califia Farms Mocha is probably a winner.

Haul: I went to a gaming convention last week so my only hauls were gaming related. I’m too broke for makeup for a while!
Weekend plans: Dental surgery today, but trying to catch up on school work after the IV shootings. Sunday is Dungeons and Dragons!
Cold Drink: Iced tea. Bring on the cold things! My jaw will probably need them๏ผ

Thanks for the well-wishes, it wasn’t actually too bad and I’m already feeling pretty back with it. I picked up the Horus Heresy board game really cheap, some sourcebooks for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game system, a few really old Warhammer 40K miniatures, and one of the old Colossal Red Dragon miniatures from the old Dungeons and Dragons line. I paid only about 12% of its online cost, so I was really excited since I paid 60 and they sell online for about 300-480 dollars.

I had a friend try to get me to go to the San Francisco Ulta with her, but I didn’t get a chance to, and that might be for the best. ๐Ÿ˜›

Haul: the breast cancer Tweezerman tweezers, Naked flushed in Strip and Streak, a tarte 12 eyeliner set, and several of the Marc Jacobs nail polishes. I’m in love with the formula. I feel the same collector-ness for them that I had for Pokemon 15 years ago. Gotta catch em’ all! I got Gatsby (I’ve decided this is what’s going to be on my nails for my wedding next spring), Petra, Shocking, Oui!, Nirvana, Stone Jungle, Sally, and Blue Velvet.

Weekend plans: go to my mothers house to help my little sisters shop and prepare for thier summer trip.

Favorite cold drink: so kind of earthy herbal tea. I don’t drink much other than water and tea.

Cle de Peau Extra Rich Lipstick in Sk202. Seems to be a dupe of the original formula’s Comtesse de Cayla, and Burberry’s Nude Rose. The frostiness of it surprised me, and I really don’t like the holder. ๐Ÿ™

Haul: I bought Bite Beauty’s lipstick in Zin! I’m quite pleased with it so far. I also got Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate during their F&F sale and it just arrived.
Weekend plans: My bf is coming down to visit me in my college town. This is the last weekend before dead week so I have lots of studying to do, but I think we’re going to hit up the Prefontaine Classic.
Favorite cold drink? Water, unless a root beer float counts! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Haul: Enchanted One Lipstick, Sea Me Hear Me Blush and Delphic Extradimension Bronzer from MAC Alluring Aqua Collection; True Loveยดs Kiss Lipstick and Sculpt from MAC Maleficent Collection.
Weekend plans: Catch up on Greyยดs Anatomy! (I started following last week and I’m addicted)
Favorite cold drink?:Glass of champagne

Haul: stuff from the Urban Outfitters beauty sale- smith’s rose mandarin balm, no crack lemon hand cream, another shiseido eyelash curler, c. booth monoi dry oil spray, miracle lips serum, suvana honey and paw paw balm

Weekend plans: cleaning and having dinner with my mother-in-law

Favorite cold drink?: dr. pepper or any kind of tropical fruit punch

Haul: Oh it’s been baad. I went crazy at Bobbi Brown this last week and a half. I made a 6 pan eyeshadow palette, bought 6 (yes 6!) shimmer bricks, 5 lipsticks, and got the Raw Sugar palette. I picked up 2 Sonia Kashuk 4-pan palettes at Target (textured cocoa and textured mauve), which I surprisingly love. I grabbed 2 new Dior Addict lipsticks, and I bought a pile of MAC too (8 shadows, lipstick in Shy Shine, and a paint pot). It’s time to cool it for a while and enjoy all my goodies!
Weekend Plans: Clean house before my in-laws come stay next week. Lots and lots of laundry! Hopefully I’ll catch a movie too ๐Ÿ™‚
Favorite Cold Drink: Diet Pepsi. Always.

So far I use Beige the most for cheek highlighting, with Rose as a close second. I’ve been loving Bronze and Pink Quartz for my eyes. I haven’t tried Apricot or Nectar yet, but I think they’ll be beautiful with coral or peach lips for summer ๐Ÿ™‚

Haul: Ole Henriksen Truth Revealed Super Creme with SPF 15 (it’s my every day face cream) and On the Go Facial Cleanser; from the Sephora house brand, their special LE bronzer/blush trio called “Bronzed and Blushing Face Palette”. And I spoiled myself by treating myself to a bottle of Mistral Patchouli from Atelier Cologne.

Plans: Yoga and/or gym tomorrow and some baking (sort of defeats the purpose of the gym but I’ve got some rhubarb just crying out to be baked into something yummy) and on Sunday, driving to the city to take our younger son out for brunch (he’s working there on his co-op term)

Favourite cold drink: probably lemonade – real lemonade, not from a mix, and especially strawberry or raspberry lemonade.

The name of the fragrance sounds so pretty! ๐Ÿ™‚

What are you thinking of doing with the rhubarb? Pie? And besides, if you go to the gym, that’s better than eating baked goods and not, right? Better they neutralize ๐Ÿ˜‰

Looks a like Mellan is enjoying his toys! Too cute!

Haul: UD 69 lipstick
Weekend Plans: I have no idea, maybe relax and watch a couple of movies.
Favorite cold drink? At the moment it’s iced coffee or tea.

Haul: A bottle of wine (Sauvignon Blanc) from Gainey Vinyards in the Santa Ynez Valley, but no beauty items…
Weekend plans: Day-date activity tomorrow, probably a horseback trail ride, then my friend’s graduation party tomorrow night.
Favorite cold drink?: Alcoholic – Margarita, non alcoholic – ginger ale, or an iced green tea lemonade from Starbucks

Haul: Sephora haul โ€ข HOURGLASS Ambient Lighting Palette, URBAN DECAY All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray travel size, JACK BLACK Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 25 in Shea Butter & Vitamin E, DR. BRANDT SKINCARE pores no moreยฎ pore refiner (100 Points)

Weekend plans: Cleaning and relaxing.

Favorite cold drink?: Any kind of frozen mixed smoothie right now and my larynx is still kind of raw from yelling over crowds last weekend.

I’m picking up Kevyn Aucoin’s creamy duo number 2! I picked up #4 (contour/highlighter) a week ago and I love the contour shade.

Unsweetened green iced tea is my go to.

Also! I just began working out this week (and I forgot how good it feels!) so I’m gonna try to hit the trails with my dog! ๐Ÿ™‚

Haul: Nothing.

Weekend plans: I have to give a makeup lesson to a paying client, and I’m hoping to catch up on swatching and writing posts. I also need to do more creative stuff with my nail stamping tools.

Favorite cold drink?: Lemonade, chai latte, iced raspberry tea, peach juice and mauby (a drink popular in the Caribbean).

I have a lot of favorites, huh? Lol.

Haul: Its been a bad week(for my wallet, but a fabulous one for me! Woohoo!) got a YSL baby doll eyeliner in black, an emerald green coat cardigan(waited two years for the right shade of green!), got a limited edition Jo Malone fragrance in wisteria and violet (smells divine, am walking around with my wrist glued to my nose!) and a black pair of harem pants.
Weekend plans: Hopefully going to watch the new X Men movie. Always up for a spot of Hugh Jackman watching. Michael Fassbender ain’t too shabby either!
Favourite cold drink: a nice pinot gris or riesling. Yum!

Hopefully the coat was worth the wait ๐Ÿ™‚ I have been on the hunt for a pair of boots that don’t get too slouchy in front for years. One day!

Awww, Mellan, such a sweet dog!
Haul, nothing. Yay me!
Weekend plan, going to a vintage fair, some vintage, some new but with a vintage feel. Then the usual, chores and walking the dog, also playing with him and maybe start teaching him some new stuff.
Cold drink, hmm, I don’t think I can narrow this down to just one as there are so many good cold drinks, depending on what I feel like, but champagne is a good choise ๐Ÿ™‚

I bought a purse from the 50s, a bit quirky, like a box with metal sort of braided for the purse itself and the lid and handle made of, and I’m unsure about the spelling, luceite.
I also found, but didn’t buy, some compacts, some with powder still in them. They are so pretty, but I’ve no idea where to get refills, I don’t think it’s possible. I have a compact that belonged to my grandmother. Vintage stuff is so much fun.
Oh, forgot, I did buy a 1940s dress, I need to fix some of the seams, but I got it at a very good price.

Haul: Chanel Les Beiges Fluid whatever the hell it’s called in No. 10
Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me
Essence XXXL Lipgloss in Just Georgeous!, XXXL Lipgloss (Matt Finish) in Velvet Rose
A new vase, a bunch of stationary (but boring and practical stationary, boo), a hoarde of clothes (new dress, new top, tights and socks – pure rockstar, me).

Weekend Plans: We need to go buy a printer. Whoo. Lesson planning. Tidying. Blog photos. Hopefully, if it’s nice, a walk in the woods and maybe lunch outside or a trip to the mountain? I dunno, the bf has no work this weekend though so I fully intend on dragging his ass into the outdoors.

Favourite Cold Drink?: Iced Latte. I need a Costa like nobody’s business; it’s been way too long. Starbucks would also be acceptable.

Haul: Nothing, yet. I’m planning on picking up some stuff tonight. Feeling kind of pissy that I can’t purchase Becca’s Opal because it’s sold out thanks to all the YouTubers pimping it out.

Weekend plans: I have a huge pile of laundry waiting for me, so, that.

Favorite cold drink?: I am currently obsessed with Starbucks’ Cool Lime Refresher.

Hope you and yours have a great weekend, Christine!

Pressed! The pressed version of Opal has become one of the new YT “it” products now apparently, and Becca + Sephora have decided to jump onto the faux scarcity wagon. I really hate when companies do this to customers. It’s lame.

Becca seems like a brand that just doesn’t produce a lot of stock (because they seem like one of those underrated/lesser talked about brands to me) – those Souffles were out of stock SO fast when they initially released even when nobody had said anything about them (pretty sells, obviously!), but it seemed like Sephora/Becca were fairly quick to restock though they can’t *keep* them in stock either. It would be interesting if they were artificially keeping it low, though, since it’s not even LE!

Yeah, all of those Souffles are currently out of stock. Don’t know how long it’s been that way, but with Opal pressed when it goes out it seems to stay out several weeks to months, and when they do bring it back in stock that lasts like less than 2 hrs. It just kind of feels like they have started doing what goes on with the UD Naked palettes, lol. This dang thing is sold out almost everywhere. I’m going to try and place a phone order for it, though.

It’s hard for me to fathom brands underestimating demand by so much each and every time, so it seems like something deliberate, but sometimes, I really just don’t understand it–especially when it’s done with permanent products so it’s not as if you won’t be making more than people will want!

You can it at Amazon, Dermstore, and other retailers of Becca. ๐Ÿ˜€ I just had to pick up a moonstone! Moonstone & Pearl are my favorites! ๐Ÿ˜€

Thanks, Lotus! I actually found out a semi-close store has it in stock, so didn’t end up having to do much extra hunting! Moonstone in the liquid was my original favorite, but I’m a highlighter addict, so trying something new! Have you tried both the liquid and powder versions?

Yay! That’s great timing! I love highlighters as well and I still don’t think I’ve unlocked all the potential of the Shimmering Skin Perfector (Pump cream liquid) as it just blends out but never disappears so it’s wonderful for a twitch of the head, anything to pick up light soo beautifully! I really like the formula, unlike anything else, so I’ve not switched to the powder one, but in the powder there’s a gorgeous rose gold too! What do you think of the “liquid” versus the something new “powder,” highlighter? I’m really interested! ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks!

I feel like the shimmer is slightly more pronounced in the powder versions. I want to say I like the liquid more only because I feel it’s more versatile, but with that said, I tend to always gravitate toward a powder version more no matter what I think of the liquid/cream.

Haul: Sigma 4 piece precision kit (P80, P82, P84, P86) and 5 piece kabuki set (F80, F82, F84, F86, F88)! Ahhh! ๐Ÿ˜€
Weekend plans: Rest, it’s been a busy past few weeks!
Favorite cold drink?: On the regular – water. For a treat – a strawberry banana smoothie!

1) Hourglass Opaque Rouge in Icon. Damn, what an amazing red. Blue based but still deep without veering into berry or wine hues (and matte, which is so important to me when it comes to reds). NARS blush bronzer duo with Sin and Casino. I’ve wanted Sin for a long time and for the first summer ever I’m embracing the bronze look. And the hype finally pulled me in, Bite Beauty’s Agave Lip Mask. I really like the lip mask, it works really well for me.

Right now I’m trying to resist getting the Becca highlighter in Opal. It’s so dang purdy. (Actually I think all three of the Becca highlighters are gorgeous. *drools*)

2) Work work work.

3) Smoothies or Champagne. ๐Ÿ™‚

Aww, lil(big) baby Mellan is so cute when he’s playing with his toys ๐Ÿ˜€ he has tons of toys, so lucky ๐Ÿ˜€

I haven’t bought anything yet but I probably will buy a pink eyeshadow(and more, but I gotta decide which) and a natural-pink lipstick from a greek brand, Trendy by Cosbell, which I can only find at a small shop in the University subway station ๐Ÿ˜€
The funny thing is that the same producer makes other two brands, Seventeen, which is a bit more expensive but still cheap, and Radiant, which is more expensive. The thing is that there’s no point in buying the Radiant and some Seventeen ones(except for unique colors) cause most of their products contain the same ingredients. Why spend 10 $ or 15$ on an eyeshadow when you can spend 3$ on the same formula? ๐Ÿ˜€

Weekend plans: Just being lazy….maybe I’ll go shopping with my mom…IDK if I’ll buy clothes…I’m gonna watch Her

Fav cold drink: Water!

Haha! I have to avoid Petsmart so I don’t buy him even MORE toys. I usually go once a season – I try to at least only get the cheaper toys, lol!

Haul: I have bought way too much! Two orders from Macys arrived with various things from the Alluring Aquatic collection,: seduced at sea blush, aphrodites shell beonzer, se goddess lipstick, clear water and water deities lipglasses; my beauty.com order arrived, with the TF chocolate bar palette. I placed a Sephora order with the Tarte body bronzer and the sun kit, and my bare minerals order from their sale arrived, I got a blush set (I am a blush-aholic!) the hot list set and a couple lip glosses. I am anxiously awaiting a dillards order, and a Nordstroms order. I think that’s it but I feel like I’m forgetting something. After reading that I feel like I need to voluntarily commit myself for an addiction!

Plans: my dog, Bella, has a vet appointment today, so that is always an adventure. I need to go into work for a bit and I plan to catch up on some blogging, of my own.

Favorite Cold Drink: Iced Tea

On a side note- I love reading your blog. You take the time to not only write great reviews, but to engage your readers in discussions and respond to almost everyone’s comments and answer questions. It is nice to feel, as a reader, that you genuinely care about and appreciate your readers!

Lots of orders coming in, Jamie! What are you loving so far? What did you get from Nordstrom?

Being able to chat with readers is really a highlight to blogging! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you so much for noticing – it is nice to be appreciated in return!

Have a great weekend, Jamie!

Haul: Urban Decay stuff in a swap — Dangerous palette, Ransom eyeliner, Minx and Purple Haze eyeshadows; then MAC lipstick in All Fired Up, Nars Pro Prime, Urban Decay LSD, Scorch, Electric and Asphyxia eyeliners, Stila Smudgestick in Turquoise (yeah, went crazy with the eyeliners)

Weekends plans: Hopefully see Maleficent with the boyfriend for a late birthday date, aaaannd work.

Favorite cold drink: Hmm, yeah either a Starbucks frappuccino or an ice cold Coke, but then I love strawberry banana smoothies and Ovaltine too!

Eyeliners are so great! They’re just something you can wear even if you don’t want to do a full face ๐Ÿ™‚

โ– Haul: A backup of Physicians Formula 2 in 1 Lash Boosting Eye Liner in Ultra Black, my holy grail.
โ– Weekend plans: Being a bum.
โ– Favorite cold drink?: Indulgent โ€” McCafรฉ Mango Pineapple Smoothie. Reality โ€” Starbucks Trenta Passion Tea Lemonade, unsweetened w/ 6 Splendas! Yes, I like me some sweeeeet drinks.

I have very oily lids and watery eyes, so it’s difficult to find an eyeliner that will not make my wings disappear with wateriness or smudge with the oiliness whether it be liquid, gel, or pencil. This liquid liner:

-Stays on beautifully (so long as I’m not crying!).
-It’s easy to remove too, which can be hard to find on a very long wearing liquid liner (I’m looking at you, MAC Liquidlast and Prestige Cosmetics Against all Odds!)
-It glides on without skipping, super easy to use.
-It’s inky black.
-And best of all, all this at a very fair price!

I can’t say enough good things about it, truly. Well, it’s supposed to have some serum to help you eyelashes grow longer or be fuller, whatever. Haven’t seen much of that, but… WHO CARES?! ๐Ÿ˜€

Hey, since it’s not an $80 serum, it can be forgiven for living up to all THOSE things but not the lash growth thing (and personally, lash growth stuff for some reason creeps me out, lol).

Haul: Just ordered the Too Faced Natural At Night Palette, OCC nail polish in Radiate and Anime from sephora. The ulta and sephora around me both stopped carrying the Natural At Night Palette, I was afraid they are discontinuing it.
Weekend plans: Going to a bbq after work today.
Favorite cold drink: Java chip frappuccino, jamba juice berry upbeet smoothie.

Haul: My last skincare haul was last Friday and I believe I reorted that.
Weekend plans: Nothing special, just the usual to-dos.
Favorite cold drink?: I love the Starbucks Iced Shaken Hibiscus Tea.

That octopus is adorable <3 Not as adoraable as Mellan, maybe, but still…

Haul: some bits and pieces for a gift for a friend!
Weekend Plans: Thesis, ballet etc. The usual! I need to catch up on some bloggy things too, actually.
Favourite cold drink: Iced tea! Especially if it's got peach or mango juice in it. On special occasions, Jura whiskey or Choya Umeshu (with cold water on the side). ๐Ÿ˜€

Wow, Mellan has a toy pile! I’ll probably take my pup out to the beach to swim on sunday morning. Since we just moved it’s mostly an unpacking weekend!

Awww… The fabulously toy surrounded and guilty looking Mellan, loved and beloved. <333 Can't wait to see the Givenchy Rouges! ๐Ÿ˜€

Haul:
MAC Alluring Aquatic Blush in Sea Me, Hear Me
MAC Alluring Aquatic Eyeshadow: Fathoms Deep
MAC Alluring Aquatic Eyeshadow: Sun Worship
MAC Alluring Aquatic Eyeshadow: Silver Sun
MAC Alluring Aquatic Pearl-glide eyeliners in Both the greener one and more black one…
BITE BEAUTY BB balm in Dolce
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 in Tulip
Marc Jacobs Siren Palette
Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayons in another Blacquer, whatever spelling is, O(vert), (wave) length, N(ice), & Ro(Cocoa).. Family completed!
-The Shu Uemura Ultim8 cleansing oil just came in Friday, and it's AMAZING HOW MUCH I LOVE IT RIGHT NOW! (Christine, for you, how does it compare with the other oils? This was my first!)
Weekend plans: Good luck to catching up, Christine! I hope it happens in a relaxed manner for you! This weekend, it's my birthday celebration. Yay!
Favorite cold drink?: Coconut water! ๐Ÿ˜›

The Ultim8 is a little lighter in consistency than the orange one I’ve tried but heavier than the pink one I last used up, but in terms of cleaning, they all do an excellent job removing everything! I’m so glad you’re loving it! YAY! shu has one of the better consistencies to me – ones from say Bobbi Brown and MAC are effective but heavier, a little more “oily” during application. I think shu might come out to be cheaper per ounce since they sell such massive bottles.

Happy birthday, Lotus! xoxo Have a great one!

Aww ๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you! Yes, I LOVE shu!!!! I adore Bioderma Sensibio Micellar Water & La Roche Posay Dermo Toleriane fluid lotion, but they just remove, this oil is LOADED with SKIN PERFECTERS! I’m blown away by how it both gently cleanses yet skin remains balanced WITH extra benefits that totally make me feel pampered and it seems to improve skin with each use! I got the smaller size, but I am certain that I will take advantage of the generous size & good value of the large bottle next time. This is really comforting my skin right now and totally helping it through some change, but effortlessly! It’s do lovely I wonder if I’m buying the hype, but I’m totally not, and I get excited again! LOL! Thank you SO MUCH for the code! ๐Ÿ˜€ <3 xoxo!!

So glad I could help! ๐Ÿ™‚ shu has more frequent % off codes, so keep an eye out for one when you’re getting low! (I’m almost sure to post one, if I know of one!)
