I haven’t been online as much as usual. Life’s gotten busy. I come home exhausted from work lately. But that’s not entirely true some nights. I watch movies or go out or play wii fit or read. Some of which I haven’t always done in the past like I should so I’ve been enjoying these activities more often. :deco2: But tonight I thought I’d get on and blog about stuff lately. Nothing lately. lolol
I’ve been obsessed with this whipped body lotion from Samourai Woman Fruits Series these past two weeks. It’s a small jar that I’ve already nearly used up. It smells like a gorgeous mango and peach dessert. I think these things are perfect for me. The size. Because I could try many different ones but still feel the gratification of finishing it up!
I’ve been finishing a lot of things lately. Multiple lotions, firming creams, eye creams, soaps, perfumes, mascaras. It’s so gratifying.
I also need to get a new red nail polish. My old of Rapid Red from Insta-Dri finally kicked the bucket. Since red is my #1 favorite color I want to upgrade it. At first I thought I’d get OPI And a Cherry on Top but it was sold out. Then I was trying to get Chanel’s Pirate but it’s sold out online and in stores except at Chanel.com. I tried it on at Nordstroms and LOVED it but they were sold out (always.) But then I saw Dior’s Royalty Red and using Sephora’s new beta site I was able to verify that a store I visit has it in stock!
Hmmm I’m super happy with my other Dior polish. So I’ll probably pick up the Dior instead. I like buying stuff in-person. Honestly I’ll probably buy whichever one I find in stores first. I’m going to go get my nails done this week so there’s no rush.
Speaking of Sephora I got 2 more new night creams to try from them this week. :?: I know I’ve been bitching about searching and experiencing trial & error with a new night cream to replace my discontinued one.
That Boscia’s Oil-Free Nightly Hydration I tried last week worked great but burned my eyes. The fumes or something. :deco13: I wasn’t even applying it near my eyes!! :x Then the oil-free Clinique Moisture Surge Intense broke me out the next day. :ng: A few others I tried but they either stung my face too much or smelled too sweetly/strong. The search continues. I’ve got more samples in mind too like Dior’s and Origins. I’m using a Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation right now. It smells like crayons … hahaha :deco13:
And after the oil-free cream broke me out I said f*ck it and finally tried Shu Uemura’s Cleansing Oil.
White Recovery Brightening Cleansing Oil Advanced Formula
AMAZING. Smells amazing. :deco5:
I’ve only used it twice so I can’t tell if it’ll break me out lol. I’ll keep trying it. I have a deluxe sample version of it though so I’ll get quite a number of test runs out of it. Removes makeup beautifully.
Also I tried that Koh Gen Do – Cleansing Spa Water and must say it’s my new eye makeup remover! :up: Though you can use it all-over I didn’t really like it for that but I do love it as an eyemakeup remover!
I’ve also been using the My Beauty Diary Rose & White Peony Sleep Concentrate I got from Karen for Christmas. :deco3: :deco3: :deco3:
I’ve used it for at least a month now, maybe more. I really like it. Firstly, it’s a great clear gel that goes on smooth. It smells amazing and feel instantly moisturizing. I put it on every other night. I feel like if I put it on 3+ nights in a row though I get a tiny bump or two, like a whitehead. So I apply it every other night instead or else I would have totally made this my new night cream!
Also been using these two SANA brand items. Esteny Power Tight Hip & Leg and Hadanomy Collagen Face Masks. :suki: Well the firming gel I’ve been using since I reviewed the Hot Massage version. This one has better results and a crazy citrus smell plus heat effect! I’m liking it a lot. And the Hadanomy Collagen Masks I’ve only used once so far. It was on Sunday night and it really helped moisturize my winter wind burned face. But I want to finish the box before deciding my final thoughts on it. :dizzy:
I also want to give these two SKIN FOOD samples a try! Hoping they’ll even out my skin tone that’s a bit blegh from the dryness and acne flare up from last weekend.
Oh yeah new magazine issues keep coming in and I keep meaning to scan in inspo for myself…
And lastly, for now I’m not caring about finding a new backpack. :ng: The other day I was thinking and thinking and realized I shouldn’t be over thinking something so stupid! lolol So I’m just gonna forget about it for now. XD
