I will be sharing a post later this week on the latest and all his wonderful progress this last week and a half, so come back for that!
Onto a haul-
This last Saturday I headed to the mall for the Lush grand opening party they were hosting. The party was so much fun- A DJ, cupcakes, champagne, sweet ladies and great Lush products and freebies… win.
My friend Angela joined me and we went a little early to hit up a few places before the party. She'd never been to Lush before, I think she's officially hooked!
First stop, Sephora-
Angela and I were both wanting to test out the Benefit Gimme Brow, so neither of us did our brows before we left. We both tried it out and instantly fell in love. I fill in my brows with either a pencil or powder then top with the Anastasia brow gel. I will continue to use those products, but I think this stuff is perfect for quick brow fix when I'm in a hurry, like every weekday morning! It's a natural looking finish and fills them in perfectly. They didn't look harsh or cakey at all. They have 2 shades, the medium/deep was perfect for me and the light/medium was perfect for her. (She has red hair and blond brows) I seriously love Benefit products, can't go wrong!
Next up, Victoria's Secret-
One scent/body spray I will always repurchase, Sheer Love. It's so fresh and feminine. After 1 smell, Angela had to buy it too! The sweet girl at the checkout threw in a couple perfume samples for me as well.
Now onto Lush-
The first hundred through the door got a free gift, it was a Blackberry Bath Bomb. I had planned on buying another bath bomb anyway, so now I didn't have to!
I specifically wanted a good all over lotion, after smelling several I went with the Karma Kream. My skin has been so dry lately, I wanted a good lotion to slather on at night.
I also picked up a bottle of the Grease Lightning spot treatment. I've been using a sample of it I got from the day I toured their new store recently. I feel like it really does help. I don't know what's been going on with me but I've been fighting breakouts around my chin and jaw line. I really think it's from stress, but it seriously needs to leave already!
I picked up a tin for my shampoo bar they gave me last time and also a tin of their Shine So Bright Balm for split ends. They were out of the Grease Lightning and Shine So Bright last time I was there, so I planned on getting them this time.
If you spent $50 you got to spin the prize wheel, I spent just over $50 so I got a spin. I won a Sugar Scrub, which I've never used before so I was happy to get to try it out.
Confession time. The girl scouts were there... We tried to get away with not buying any, we didn't have any cash so we thought we were safe. Before we knew it, we muttered the words "Do you take checks…" Then bam, we were buying 4 boxes. I'm just joking, I mean true story, but who are we kidding? We would have traded all of our mall loot for just one box!
We each bought 2. I know, NO THIN MINTS?! I like Thin Mints, but the Lemon ones are what I live for each year.
It was a great morning spent at the mall with my bestie and I'm sure enjoying all my new stuff!
Linking up with The Birdie Bowl and Sassy Wife / Classy Life today for some Tuesday Tea, make sure and check them out!
