The Body Shop Haul

Believe it or not, this is the 2nd The Body Shop haul I did online within weeks of each other (there was also a third…).  The Body Shop’s online store was having fabulous sales week after week and well, I am a true sucker for a sale!  I had a $10 Groupon to use which helped lower my out of pocket expense – plus with my Love Your Body discount and the sale, I saved quite a bit of money.

Since I do have acne prone and oily skin I have grown to love the Tea Tree line from The Body Shop. It’s perfect, calming and really helps neutralize my acne once I’ve got my face “under control”. I was out of a few products and I was interested in trying the creamy cleanser which was an online exclusive.

Here’s what I picked up:

-          Tea Tree Blackhead Exfoliating Wash (x2)
-          Tea Tree Cool & Creamy Wash (x2)
-          Tea Tree Cleansing Wipes
-          Tea Tree Skin Cleaning Foaming Cleanser
-          Ginger Scalp Care Shampoo (large bottle)
-          Vitamin C Microdermabrasion single use

The Body Shop Nutriganics Haul

This is the product of an online sale and a $10 off $20 Groupon. I happen to be a huge The Body Shop fan and I am trying to steer towards more natural skincare products. I realize with my acne prone skin that can sometime be a little daunting but I’m trying to give it a go as much as I possible can.

Lately I’ve been concerned with reducing the signs of aging. I realize I’m in my late 20’s and this is one of the prime times to begin trying to combat the effects of aging on the skin. I’m trying to collectively battle two wars at the same time – acne and aging.  With that, this Nutriganics line caught my attention as I was browsing the website.  It sounded promising and the reviews on the website were pretty positive.  It also helped that the line was 40% off online which made for even bigger savings along with my $10 off.  I opted to get three products to give it a go.

Here’s what I picked up:

-          Nutriganics Smoothing Serum
-          Nutriganics Smoothing Eye Cream
-          Nutriganics Smoothing Day Cream

Have you tried the Nutriganics line?

Walgreen’s Haul ft. Wet n Wild & Rimmel!

This is actually a little bit of an older haul which I’ve been slacking on posting.  I popped into Walgreen’s one day because I needed some medication, plus they were having a buy one get one 50% off sale on Rimmel products. I typically find sales on Rimmel at the drugstore can be pretty few and far between.  The Rimmel Show Off lip lacquers had dropped a few weeks prior and I wanted to get my hands on a few colors.  I really blame my lusting for these lip lacquers on the number of blog posts and Instagram photos I saw raving about them.  Paying full price for all the shades I wanted was ridiculous so I waited … and I’m glad I did because with the sale and $1 off manufacturer coupons I was able to score a pretty fabulous deal.

Also while there I spotted the red Wet n Wild Megalast nail polish I had been wanting.  Since it was in this trio pack, I decided it was a great deal so I picked it up. Not like I need anymore nail polish – but they’re pretty!

Here’s what I picked up:

-          Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer in Light Year
-          Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer in Solstice
-          Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer in Galaxy
-          Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer in Comet
-          Wet n Wild Megalast Trio ft. I Red a Good Book, a gorgeous red, black and silver glitter polish and a clear top coat

Have you picked up any of the Rimmel Show Off lip lacquers or any new Wet n Wild polishes?
