Hauls sometimes can be unnecessary but other times can be crucial when certain things run out! In today's case it is both out of necessity (because I ran out of my essentials) and desperation. I finally ran out of the moisturizers, eye cream, and scar diminishing cream so I knew I had to pick some things up! But, I also have been breaking out much more frequently then normal! As such, we have a little haul here that is somewhat necessary (and didn't result in me cheating on my latest Project 10 Pan!). Some of these products are products I have used before, others are brand new to me and I am looking forward to trying out!
First necessity I picked up to help combat breakouts was the Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel. While I certainly have a lot of acne products still, none of them have been working against the recent batch of acne. While this has worked well for me in the past, it isn't working as well for me right now! I'm not going to return it though because my sister still loves it (and its working fabulous on her)! The next thing I picked up to combat my breakouts is the Lush Cupcake Fresh Face Mask. I haven't raved much about this mask as much as I need too, this is a great mask to purify and smooth out the texture of your skin! While this isn't the best to help fight breakouts, it does brings up all the dirt, sebum, and lord knows what to the surface (which may result in having a couple of breakouts in the first couple of uses just because it is extracting all of the grimey things out of your skin!)
For skincare, I had to replenish my day cream, eye cream, body lotion, and scar diminishing cream. For my day cream, I purchased the Boots Botanics Mattifying Day Cream Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15. It says for it is meant for oily/combination skin, so I knew I had to try this out to see whether or not it worked for my oily skin! As always, I'm in search of a hydrating eye cream to reduce the puffiness in my eyes as well as minimize my fine lines on my eyes! As such, I decided to try out the Boots Botanics Hydrating Eye Cream Age Defense with Protective Ginkgo. I have a friend who loves Boots skincare, so I knew I had to try out those two Boots products! For a daytime body lotion, I decided to tryout the Hawaiian Tropic Ultra Radiance Sheer Touch Lotion Sunscreen SPF 15. In the past, I haven't really cared much for protecting my body (yes, that meant that I did not put SPF on my body unless I was swimming in the pool or beach). However, I am working on changing that this summer. I currently have plenty of lotions, but none of them had any SPF in it. I decided to try this one because IT SMELLS LIKE MANGOS (which is my second favorite scent of all time... ultimate fave being coconut). Lastly, I had to replace my Scarzone Advanced Skincare Scar Cream which I have loved for years...and then after purchasing it I realized that they reduced the size of the product while keeping the price! I'm currently pissed at the fact that they did that, so I am currently contemplating on changing to a new product. The formula hasn't changed, but I feel like I have already used up half of the product in the tube and I only had it for a week.
What skincare products are your necessities? Any products you'd recommend me to pick up next whenever these run out?
