nyc haul

Monday, July 8, 2013

When people talk about shopping in NY this is what they mean right ;)? I tend to use my trips to stock up on face essentials, because while in DC K-town might be super far away and not really metro accessible, in NY it's just a few blocks away!

Softymo Deep Cleansing Oil, $10.99
I know some people swear by the DHC version of this cleanser, but Softymo is slightly cheaper and works just fine for me. You have to get used to the orange scent but since I double cleanse it's not something that bothers me for very long - and it gets off all the makeup!

The Face Shop Sebum Control Soothing Mask Sheet, $3/each
A pricey face mask I admit, but these are some of my very favorite - say they control oil (in my experience) and afterwards my face is super soft. 

The Face Shop FACE it Styling Mascara in 01 Edge Volume & 02 Edge Curling, $15/each (B1G1)
Gotta love a bargain! The Face Shop mascara I picked up in Hong Kong is awesome and I was hoping one (or both) of these would live up that. Sadly the formula's not the same and while neither of these are bad mascaras, I've still got my eye out for that 'Freshian Volumizing' one. 

The Face Shop Herb Day Massage Cream in Cucumber, $9
So......about how I'm a sucker for new face things. But really we all knew this so no one should be surprised that Bubzbeauty's video on facial massage got me to purchase one of those stone massager thing-ys. And with THAT I needed a product to keep my face slick to avoid dragging and after a disastrous turn in Chinatown (no I'm not crazy checkout ladies) the woman helping me at the Face Shop pointed me to his, specifically for my oily acne prone skin. I have to wash it off after I'm done but as soon as I have an opinion about this I'll let you guys know.

And that's it! No shiny jewelry, no spiffy clothes, the only thing I did in NY was eat and buy face stuff. Hopefully that's not too disappointing, lol! I'm trying to get back in the spirit of work after my 4 days off but let me tell you - it's not easy! All I'd like to do is go back to my pool and curl up with a good book.
