Sunday is drugstore day! That’s one of the few times I find myself in a mall, so I pounce at the opportunity to replenish my “necessities.” Well, these aren’t really necessities, but that’s the time I have to peruse the drugstore to find steals!
I got these things from St. Ives: Moisturizing Olive Cleanser (Php 249.75), in hopes that I have found a cleanser that can take the place of shu uemura’s cleansing oil. I tried this today and it worked well enough but smelled yucky. In my opinion anyway. I can deal with it, because it’s an awesome makeup remover and my skin feels sufficiently moisturized!
The Blemish Control Apricot Scrub (Php 197) came with this free sample size of the Oatmeal & Shea Butter Lotion. I was on the lookout for the green tea scrub, but all we had are several variants of the apricot. I used this last night, though and my skin felt so good! I want to use the scrub again tonight, but my sister said you should only do it 2-3 times a week, so I will resist. The smell is fantastic and it’s very easy to use!
Face masks! These are pretty generic ones. I heard Estée of Essie Button used masks a lot, and I don’t know if these are any good, but there’s no harm in trying. These range from Php 29-39, if I’m not mistaken. I treated my sister to the anti-aging ones as she is extremely paranoid about wrinkly skin.
I also got the Garnier Brightening Eye Roll-On (Php 229) and the Ardell Falsies in 101 Black (Php 350) for my sister because she has always wanted to try both. I got these two Marionnaud N°8 eyeshadow brushes (Php 149.00 each), just because. These were supposed to be Buy 1, Get 1 but the cashier punched them as two items so I am a tiny bit sad about that.
And, that’s that! I don’t buy much drugstore makeup here because they mark them up so high, I feel like I’m buying from a mid-range brand. Which in turn makes me want to just buy high-end makeup. Which I know doesn’t make much sense, but there you go.
Any great finds as of late? I would love to hear about them! 🙂
