I myself enjoy reading other bloggers' posts of the kind (minus those about empties - I secretly hate(?) them out of sheer jealousy as I am incapable of emptying anything *_*)
Well, opening a blog post is the hardest part for me as always. I think this one is well complied with the "rambling" quality of the entry itself, so here goes.
These are my latest drugstore finds and favorites that I'd like to share with you today. :)
Recent Drugstore Favorites
1. L'Oreal OleoTherapy Oil Infused Shampoo and Conditioner
I don't really use expensive hair care products but I always have different sets of poos and cons in my shower booth to switch up depending on the hair condition and claimates.
I have enjoyed many of L'Oreal's sulfate free systems (although I don't really mind sulfates in general), and this new set works so nicely for my winter hair that I want to also buy the oil essence.
Lately, the "Oleo Technology" seems to be "the next big thing" - it is everywhere. (The new Light Bulb Foundation from Shu would be one example.)
Plus I can't help but notice the similarities between the L'Oreal OleoTherapy and the Kerastase Nutritive Oleo system. I have no intention buying Kerastase for comparison, but L'Oreal does own Kerastase.
2. Lumene Vitamin C+ Brightening Skin Nectar and 24hr Lotion
Lumene is a great drugstore skincare brand from Finland.
After I used up the Sekkisei Whitening range, I wanted some radiance boosting regimen for a short period time before I start my retinol round again.
The serum works great under makeup and the lotion hydrates effectively without feeling greasy.
My skin looks brighter and feels smoother. I am pleasantly surprised by this affordable Vitamin C skincare line cause my skin does not always react friendly to this natural active agent.
(Speaking of "natural", you gotta read this awesome post.)
I might revisit this line again although it seems it has been upgraded to "Bright Now Vitamin C".
3. Boots Botanics All Bright Cleansing Toner
Boots is my go-to brand for effective and affordable toner for the last step of cleansing.
This All Bright Cleansing Toner takes care of the last trace of whatever the day left behind and also exfoliate mildly with AHA.
It doesn't look nor smell pretty, but gets the job done. I love this toner.
4. Lumene Waterproof Eye makeup Remover
I actually found the Lumene brand because of this eye makeup remover a long time ago.
Recently I started using separate eye makeup remover again, and this was the one I went right back to.
I have used so many bottles of this in the past. This is as good as the legendary Lancome Bi-facil and only coasts $5.99 a bottle.
5. Cerave Facial Moisturizing Lotion AM SPF 30
This is my holy grail daytime moisturizer for my neck area.
I wish I could wear this on my face as well, but it is on the heavy side so I can't wear the recommended dosage. It works wonderfully on my neck, though.
If you have dry skin, do try this on your face. Not only it contains anti-aging properties but the sunscreen agents used are very solid and effective.
6. Epic Blend Hemp Coconut Lip Balm
When I read about the range on BeautyReflectionsBlog a while ago, I wanted to try but quickly forgot about them.
Recently I received one from BeautyBox5 and I fell in love with it! I mean, I don't even like coconut scent but this lip balm really rocks.
7. L'Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain Endless Red
You know my obsession for this range.
Endless Red is the purest and the most perfect glossy red for me. I can't wait to review on this.
As I have acquired this red, I am done for now since I don't see any other color I want from what's available currently.
Let there be LEs. Soon.
8. L'Oreal Colour Riche Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick Pink Tremolo
You recently read my rave review. (No? Oh, please do. ;))
Maybe I should warn you about its strong fruity scent here again, but my love is the same.
Thanks for reading!
