alba botanica facial sunscreen,
Beauty: High End & High Street Haul
I have been buying quite a few things because I need to restock my very modest collection. As soon as I realized that my products have been expired for a good few years, I decided it was time to say goodbye and find some replacements.
Vaseline Rosy Tint Lip Balm - I love the smell of rose and I have been loving Vaseline lately, so it made sense that I would buy the tinted version. It's sticky and I don't like sticky, but maybe if I put it in the fridge, it'll get better?
Aquaphor - I get dry around my chin and Vaseline wasn't strong enough. Aquaphor was the only thing that worked for me, so I went ahead and bought one!
Up and Up Oil Blotting Sheets - this was amazing. It was in a latex form, but I don't know if it was actually made of latex. It got the job done so I was fine with it.
Botanics Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm - I wanted a dupe for Liz Earle and Emma Hardie cleansing balms, so when I saw this, I wanted to go and try it. It also had good reviews at Makeup Alley, so I thought, "why not?" This balm also made my face feel really soft. It looked like solid olive oil.
Burt's Bees Radiant Facial Cleanser with Royal Jelly - this cleanser had my favorite smell of all time! It smelled so good and it literally made my face radiant the next day.
Alba Botanica Facial Sunscreen with SPF 30 - I finally got this facial sunscreen! It was the only one I was eyeing. I saw it at Marshalls for 50% off and I didn't think twice. I bought it and I was happy that it didn't make my face greasy!
The Body Shop Aloe Eye Defense - I don't know if I needed an eye cream, but I thought it would be nice to get one. This was supposed to be an eye gel/cream, but it's more in a liquid form for me.
Tarte Clean Slate 360 degrees Creaseless Eye Primer - It was 3.9 out of 5 at Makeup Alley and it was actually super incredible! It didn't crease AT ALL and kept my eyeshadows as fresh as when I applied them!
Smashbox Try It Kit - I needed a new travel size BB cream and when I saw the Try It Kit, I thought it was a good deal. The kit itself was $29 and the BB cream alone was $20. The kit came with a small kabuki brush, the Halo Hydrating Powder, and a small sample of the Original Photo Finish Foundation primer.
Let me know if you've used any of these products and how you like them!
