Everything was inside of this pink and orange makeup bag. I had a friend in high school who thought pink and orange made the perfect color combo, and now I see why. Isn't the case so chic? My makeup bag was breaking anyway, so this is perfect for me.
Up first: Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes. I'm going to be honest: I've never used facial wipes before. I've always just used something like Cetaphil and a washcloth to take my makeup off. I've noticed that my face has become a lot duller in the past year or so, and maybe my face washing habits are the cause of that. The wipes don't sting at all and took my makeup right off when I used them.
Up next: Pantene Color Preserve Shine Conditioner. I haven't tried it yet, but since I do color my hair it'll be perfect to use as soon as my conditioner runs out. I might take it to Rome since it's the perfect travel size.
I've been complaining that, despite all the lotions I have, I don't have any pocket-sized ones to fit in my backpack or purse. Well, here's my answer. The Nivea Extended Moisture Daily Lotion feels and smells exactly like Jergen's formuala. However, the difference is that the mositure lasts, and not in a sticky, annoying way. Four hours after applying it, my hands feel incredibly soft, something I'm not used to!
I'm probably most excited for this product. I don't use primer but this sample might make me. Like I said before, my skin is looking very dull and I want to try some products to lighten it up again. The L'oreal Paris Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer looks like it'll do the trick, according to the results below. I haven't tried it yet, but I am loving the fact that it will work for all skin tones and types--I don't need to buy a special shade just for my skin.
Finally, the Beauty Box came with a little booklet of beauty product-related coupons, most of them for the products I had received samples for. There was a $1 off coupon for Sally Hansen magnetic nailpolish, which I might just use. $1 off doesn't seem like much, but any little bit can help.
Like I said before, the Beauty Box is more than I expected and was a nice treat to receive in the mail. Thank you Target! Do you all shop at Target? Do you have any recommendations for facial cleansers and primers?
In other news, I'll reveal the answers to the "Two Truths and a Lie" post I made yesterday. Here we go!
2. I've never broken a bone in my body or had a cavity. TRUE! I don't know why, I guess I was just lucky. I swung on the monkey bars like every other kid and probably had more sugar than I should've, but I ended up just fine. Weird.
3. I once saved my dog from getting run over by a car. TRUE! When my dog was a puppy she escaped under the fence and ran into the middle of a busy street next to our house. Cars were swerving around her and honking their horns like crazy. I ran out into the road and scooped her up. Yeah, I'm kind of a hero...no biggie.
