So here’s my
beauty freak blogger conundrum. Do I replenish the products that I’m satisfied with, or do I try something new? I ran out of moisturizer and left my cleanser at my boyfriend’s house, so it was time to get some more stuff. I spent an hour or so looking at the travel beauty sets (or in my mind, sample packs) on Neiman Marcus and Sephora.
I’ll be real with ya. I am an immediate gratification kind of girl. I’d rather take the drive to the mall then order online, even with the free shipping and samples (most of the time).
Since I was in a pinch, I thought I’d run over to my local Arundel Mills CCO and grab a few things. I can’t go wrong with Clinique’s Wash Away Gel Cleanser. It’s one of the few cleansers that makes my skin feel really clean every time I use it. No matter if I take a month off from using it, or a few years, I always seem to come back. As far as moisturizer, I remember plenty of women using Estee Lauder DayWear. If I worked 4 days a week, someone purchased a jar of this 3 times a week. Regular price is $48, I paid $38.
Pure DKNY was one of those fragrances that I received a sample of, and I fell in love with it. I’m never really sure how to break down the notes and tones and yada yada of a fragrance, but this just takes me to that Spring Summer feeling Jilly from Philly sang about. This little 1.oz scent spray was $20. They had more sizes, but I never finish fragrances, so it worked out.
