Thoughts on my Priceline 40% Off SkinCare Haul!

Ugh. I swore I wouldn't do it. I tweeted that I need more skincare like I need another Kim Kardashian ass photo (not at all). But then it happened anyway. Le sigh. I just bought all these Alpha-H skincare goodies, too.  I'm addicted to beauty and cannot resist a sale. Especially a 40% off one, godammit!

This is the worst photo ever. I'm SO sorry.

Skin Doctors Eyecircle
I have high hopes for this, because the Skin Doctors Eyetuck is amazing and has drastically improved my eyebags. Now it's time to attack those pesky dark circles. PLEASE WORK!

Olay Total Effects Day Cream
This is my everyday moisturiser. I've used it for years, it doesn't break me out and it gives me great results. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Swisspers Facial Cleansing Wipes (Original)
I never use Facial Wipes on my face, because I'm paranoid my skin will react badly and I'll break out. These will sit beside my makeup organiser and be used to remove eyeshadow from my fingertips and any other errant makeup during application. They'll also be great for removing lipstick swatches and eyeliner lines on my hands and arms.

Swisspers Facial Cleansing Wipes (Aloe Vera)
I'm not gonna lie. I'll be using these to freshen up on hot days. And by 'freshen up' I mean I'll be using these fuckers on my vadge and under my boobies. As you do. LOL. Sorry.

Jergens Natural Glow Moisturizer
I'm a Jergens virgin, so what a fantastic opportunity to try this much-hyped brand. This smells great and I hope it makes me glow like J.Lo. The tube says "3 days to glow" so no pressure or anything, Jergens. Mind you it also says "see color results fast" AND "gradually creates flawless natural-looking color" so I'm slightly confused.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+
Another hugely hyped product in beauty circles, so to say I'm excited to try this is a huge understatement. Everyone loves this. It's supposed to unclog blocked pores, fight against marks and correct the appearance of imperfections. Sounds great to me, bring it on.

Carmex Moisturising Lip Balm
This will be my second jar of "one of the world's most loved lip balms" and it is amazing. It tingles slightly on application and is seriously the most moisturising, nourishing balm ever. If I get dry, chapped lips I always reach for my Carmex to fix it pretty damn quickly.

Palmers Cocoa Butter Lip Balm (Dark Chocolate & Mint)
Full disclosure: I needed a product to get me over the $100 mark so I qualified for free delivery and this product was cheap and did the job. I just bought a Korres Lip Butter (in Mango), plus the Carmex one..... I do not need another lip balm. I will give this one to my husband.

Models Prefer Soft Touch Mineral Powder (Photo Ready)
What's that you say? This isn't skincare? Right you are! However, have you heard the news? The Models Prefer Soft Touch Mineral Powders are apparently a dupe for the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders! THIS EXCITES ME! I've been wanting an Hourglass Ambient Powder for ages, but I'm too lazy to get my shiny Kim K butt into town to swatch them (not to mention a notorious cheapskate). Of course I used this immediately, and am very impressed. Obviously I haven't tried the Hourglass for direct comparison, but I love how the Models Prefer one blurs my imperfections and gives me an airbrushed-type finish. I seriously can't see my pores once I've applied this. Also, $59 versus $16.99. Enough said.
