Haul: Garnier Skin Renew
I originally went into CVS looking for the Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Eventone Dark Spot Corrector BUT I've been highly unsuccessful in locating that anywhere. Since I couldn't find the Palmer's I went in search of the new Olay CC Cream BUT CVS didn't have that either. So that left me meandering through the skincare aisle aimlessly and I stumbled upon the Garnier section. I noticed the Dark Spot Corrector so I pulled it off the shelf. I went back and fourth as to if I should get it or not and I finally decided what the heck, it won't hurt to try it. This was $17.99 and I was able to get $2 off using one of the coupons taped up near the product. They also have an overnight peel, but since I do use Retin-A I figured that may be doing more unnecessary things to my face and/or it may just have a huge couter-reaction to my Retin-A and cause me even more skin troubles. Anyway, I haven't noticed any results as of yet, but then again it's only been a handful of days. But one thing I do notice is if I don't use a toner on my face before applying this, I get SUPER shiny and oily and just gross within a few hours. If I use a toner underneath this and then apply a moisturizer over this, it's not terrible and I don't notice the oil. But as I use it more, I'll be able to pinpoint certain things and hopefully (fingers crossed) see some results.
