Haul: CVS, Target

Hi everyone,
For some reason, I kind of went crazy on Monday and bought a bunch of stuff I did not plan at all.

Once again excuse the picture quality, I will not be getting a new camera till at least the end of January, I'm planning on a light box though... What do you think?

1. Revlon Top Speed nail polish - Lily (pale lavender), Cloud (pale periwinkle blue) - these have horrible reviews on MUA, but I think most ppl were reviewing an older version, these have been rereleased?
They were also on the Extra bucks program for only $1.99 each after extra bucks, of course I had to try the colors I wanted.
2. Garnier Moisture Rescue Lightweight UV Lotion with SPF 15 - on sale for $5, I couldn't resist since it was kind of new, lol
3. Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick in Twinkled Pink (frosty light pink, slightly darker than Silver City Pink) - also on extra bucks, $2.49 I believe after EB.

I also finally got a vanity mirror, it was $19.99 at CVS, decent size. Most of the Conair ones are at least $22 I think, the one I saw at Target was and it was smaller and looked cheaper, go figure.
What I love most about this is that to turn on the light you just touch the base of the mirror. Pretty convenient, rather than clicking or pressing a button.

I guess you can call this my vanity, not really though 'cos there's just stuff all over the place, lol.
On this end table I put everything I'm going to talk about in hauls and whatnot

I got some sample sizes in Target's travel/sample size section. The skin around the side of my nose is super flaky, it get oily but right after I wash my face it looks horrible. Exfoliating seem to only work a little bit, so I thought I'd try a cream. I read online that it might be a skin condition that require a 1% hydrocortisone cream, which Aveeno makes. We'll see
5. Jergens Intense Healing Therapy - one of the creams with less ingredients
6. Johnson's Baby Shampoo - ppl say they use it for brushes, I wanted to see if it actually works well.

7. Suave Naturals Juicy Green Apple shampoo - I absolutely love apple scented anything (unless it's too artificial, sweet, etc.), and this one smells great. It's only like $1.89 for a 22.5 oz too which is far cheaper than Pantene or even Herbal Essence.
8. Suave Professional Rosemary Mint shampoo - I also love mint, and I saw the Aveda one (which was like, what $18 for an 8 oz?), out of my price range. This however, was only $1.59? Something like that, for 14.5 oz. It says it's somewhat of a dupe on the packaging, we shall see how "cheap" shampoos work on my hair.

7. Boots Expert Scar Care Serum - I scar easily especially with cystic acne, I read good reviews on MUA (only 3 ppl, but still) and decided to give it a try. For $7.99, it's not as bad as Mederma, which costs like $30, if it doesn't work.
8. Clif bar in Blueberry Crisp, Cool Mint Chocolate - totally not beauty related, but I've been interested in nutrition bars b/c I LOVE snacking and I feel like it'd be great if it's something that's actually good for me. They look kind of gross but taste alright.
9. Luna bar in White Chocolate Macadamia - this tastes great for a nutrition bar, expensive though (even in bulk, it's like $5.59 for 6)

More food! Yay!
10. Pirouette wafer rolls in Chocolate Hazelnut - if any of you watch missglamorazzi, you might've heard that she LOVE chocolate with hazelnut. My aunt actually gave us this as a present a few years back, I still have the can to prove it. It tastes pretty good. They actually had a mint chocolate one, but idk if I'd like that in a wafer.
11. Archer Farms granola cereal in - Cashew Apricot, French Vanilla Almond Crunch, Chocolate Chunk Hazelnut Biscotti, Blueberry Granola w/ Flax - I recently had a sample of just plain loose granola at Costco, and it actually tastes pretty good. This is somewhat healthier than a lot of cereals on the market, so I decided to get some sample bags and see which one I liked the most :) if you like granola bars, I think you almost definitely would like these. They had other flavors too but these were the ones that intrigued me.
12. M&M's with coconut - sounds interesting, peanut M&M's are still by far my favorite.


  1. I'm very interested in Garnier Moisture Rescue (but the gel version) but I'm afraid it won't be moisturizing enough for my super dry skin z=

    Hmmm the Suave Green Apple shampoo must smell yummy!

  2. I was kind of interested in that too, but I recently bought the Merlot night cream `n would probably not use the Garnier one as much. I'd go for Cetaphil if you have dry skin, no mineral oil which might cause breakouts ^^
    Haha I love it! Apple is one of my favorite scents, when done right of course
