The Body Shop Spree: Skincare Haul

IMG_3044

Hello everyone 😀

I spoke about The Body Shop issue I had last week… Here it is again, if you missed it.

But my online order came yesterday. YAY 😀

I have been having more acne issues than usual and have heard good things about The Body Shop’s tea tree assortment. They currently are having a great buy three get three sale (that makes it a BTGT… not as catchy… oh well lol). They’re also having a buy two get one free sale! 😀

I will be doing a review of what I think of these products once I’ve used them for a bit and can give a well rounded, honest review. Until then, here is a more in-depth look at my purchases:

Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash – $13.00 USD

I have actually tried this facial wash before, but I was trying another face regimen (which didn’t work) and then I lost the bottle.. whoops… Well, here’s to second chances! Tea tree oil is drying for my skin, but not too drying, which will hopefully help with my acne.

Aloe Vera Calming Toner – $14.00 USD

I knew that having ALL tea tree products would be entirely too drying for my skin, so I thought a hint of aloe would be soothing. I have never had great feelings towards a toner before, so let’s hope this one turns out well.

Tea Tree Oil – $10.00 USD

This acne spot treatment is one of The Body Shop’s best sellers and EVERYONE I spoke to raved about it… I guess I had to get it, then lol. You just use a Q-Tip to disperse a small amount of the oil onto any problem areas. I’m most excited about this one 🙂

Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream – $17.50 USD

Seaweed Clarifying Night Treatment – $21.00 USD

Of course, no face regimen is complete without moisturizer. I didn’t want anything too heavy or scented, because I have relatively sensitive skin and I break out when moisturizers just have too much in them. These seem to be light on fragrance 🙂 I got a day cream, which has mattifying properties to help with oil/shine, and a nightly treatment is a little heavier to help smooth skin while I sleep.

Tea Tree Face Mask – $16.50 USD

Last, but not least, is the tea tree face mask. I LOVE masks and I needed a new one. Whenever I feel a bad breakout coming on, I’ll use this one, since it has tea tree oil. I hope it works 🙂

I hope you all enjoyed this haul, I’ll be doing reviews on all of the stuff I bought as soon as I can gather up an honest idea of how they work for me!

Speak to you soon,

P.S. Does anyone else hate these little cardboard wormy things?? I used to not mind them, but with two animals they end up EVERYWHERE I turn! haha

Back To School Wish List: CF Edition

In exactly one month I will be moving into my apartment and starting my junior year at University. I am going into my 16th year of schooling… That is just crazy! I’m a planner and I love making wish lists before I go on my “Back to School” shopping trip for all things paper, decorative and expensive. Although most of my list consists of folders, paper and pens, I’ll just show you guys some of the beauty items I wanted to get before fall semester rolls around. Since I have recently become CF, I am soon going to have almost NO beauty items left. The summer is coming to an end, my tan will fade and all of my non-CF products will be used up!

The five items below are not the only products I’ve been eyeing, but my non-CF versions are running low and I have to replace these ones soon. When you decide to become CF, it doesn’t have to be an all or nothing event. Go at your own pace, one item at a time or even all at once! All of the pictures below were not taken by me and are property of the websites they are linked to!

So, here we go!

Eco Tools eye set

 

EcoTools Essential Eye Set – $7.99 on ecotools.com

  • My current brushes are old, perpetually dirty and are falling apart. While they are CF, I wanted to start this school year with a fresh start and a new brand of brushes. I’ve heard great things about the EcoTools brushes and they are SO soft! I want all of them! They are really cute too 🙂

Hugo Naturals Spray

Hugo Naturals Essential Mist (Vanilla & Sweet Orange) – $4.99 on hugonaturals.com

  • My perfumes are expensive, non-CF and almost empty! I do not have enough money to buy new perfumes so I am on the hunt for body mists. They are like $100 cheaper and usually have more product! I know there are some benefits to having perfumes, but you can’t beat $4.99. I really can’t wait to order some of these. Doesn’t Vanilla & Sweet Orange just sound so nice? I thought so! A new scent for a new school year, sounds good to me!

Hello Toothpaste

Hello Fluoride Toothpaste (SuperMint) – SALE $4.49 on Target.com

  • Is it weird that I’m wishing for toothpaste? Once I move I won’t have the communal toothpaste at my mother’s house (which is not CF) and I just think theses are the cutest ones. I tend to be brand loyal, and I love having everything a company has to offer. Plus, they have both toothpaste and mouthwashes. I just hope they’re as good as they seem!

Too Faced - Tan w/o twinkle

Too Faced Bronzer (tan without the twinkle w/brush) – $15.00 on TooFaced.com

  • I have a confession… I’ve never used a Too Faced product. (AH! I know, I know) But don’t worry, my goal is to change that! I am 20 years old and have a limited supply of money, so the $30 full sized bronzer is not an option at the moment. I think this tiny matte bronzer would be a good introduction into Too Faced before I start splurging. It’s still really expensive for the size. I hope it is worth it!

YTT_3Step_Regimen

YesTo Tomatoes 3-Step Acne System Bundle – SALE $19.99 on YesToCarrots.com

  • I suffer from acne prone skin and I don’t see this changing any time soon, unfortunately. I have used the YesTo Tomatoes daily pore scrub but I have not tried this 3-step system. It would be nice to start this new school year with clearer skin and a treatment system that will keep it that way. I have high hopes for this, and lets cross our fingers that it lives up to the challenge.

So, there they are! The five beauties items I would LOVE to have for the new school year. I hope I am able to get all of these so I can do reviews for you 😀
