Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer
One of my New Years resolutions this year was to spend more money and time on skincare as opposed to makeup. I’ve been doing my research and sorting through recommendations to constantly better my skincare routine. I really think I have some great products in my first haul of the year. Also, props to me for not going skincare crazy until the end of March. The self-restraint is real! Here’s a peak in my Sephora and Ulta haul.
LaVanila Sport Luxe Deodorant
This came as a recommendation from a good friend of mine after she taught me about what is really in all those generic deodorants. (It is not a pretty visual.) I’d recommend looking into the ingredients and their effects on the human body (especially the ta-ta’s). This deodorant smells amazing and has been working very well so far. I’m excited to keep trying it out!
Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips
Just restocking on my fav pore strips. Nothing new here!
Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Lifting Neck Cream
In Ulta I was actually debating between buying this or one of Mario Badescu’s neck creams. I ultimately decided on Mario Badescu’s but I got this as a free gift! Maybe doing a battle of the neck creams? I’ve heard great things about both so I can’t imagine a scenario where I’m disappointed in either!
Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs, & Rosewater
If you read my recent post about my Beauty Empties, you will recognize this little bottle. I didn’t realize how much I missed having this until I ran out. I really noticed a difference. It’s great when you want a little hydration. I highly recommend checking it out.
NYX HD Concealer
Restocking my usual concealer so nothing crazy!
NYX Angel Veil Primer
I decided to give this a try. I will admit, YouTube made me buy it. More specifically, Kathleen made me buy it. I’ll keep you updated as I get a chance to try this out for a while.
Mario Badescu Vitamin A-D-E Neck Cream
Here is the other neck cream I decided on. I missed this product in my routine. I’m glad to get back on the neck cream train. It’s never too early to start age defying products.
Sephora Honey Lip Scrub
I’ve been in the market for a lip exfoliant and the fact that this one came in a stick, so I wouldn’t have to use my fingers, really intrigued me. I’ll keep you all updated!
Not Your Mother’s Beat The Heat Thermal Shield Spray
If you read my Beauty Empties post, you’ll know that I recently ran out of my old Tresemme heat protectant and didn’t really enjoy it. I’m hoping to fall in love with this new product!
Let me know in the comments if you’ve tried one of these and what your thoughts are!
