Overdue Beauty Haul

Do you ever go into a store to find an item that you've been meaning to buy, yet end up veering off to come out of the store with more than you were planning to purchase? Yup that was me this past weekend...

Lately, I've been taking advantage of coupons and one in particular that caught my eye was for the Simple Beauty Line which I have recently grown to love immediately after purchasing and using the Moisturizing Facial Wash a couple months ago. I decided to purchase my first Simple product after Judy (from itsjudyslife on youtube) recommended it for those with sensitive skin like me.

As I've mentioned before from my previous "Try Day Friday" posts that I've had difficulty finding the right cleansers and moisturizers to work well with my skin. Next to Cerave, (which I still continue to use since my days in Texas) this actually works quite well for me. The facial wash comes out as a gel like form and once applied, it glides on smoothly leaving your face extremely soft after washing. With that said, I'm seriously excited to try out their other products as the name purely speaks for itself.  Along with these products, I decided to pick up a few other items that I needed to help me prep and go about my days in the morning before leaving the house.

Since my skin is fairly sensitive, I've tried various over the counter beauty products from Physician's Formula to Revlon, however no other OTC beauty product works well for me other than Covergirl. After many years of sticking to my MAC line of products (thanks to my MAC family at Nordstrom), I ventured off and decided to try something else that wasn't so heavy on my face.

One of the Covergirl items that I picked up was the New Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in 1 Foundation which I tried on this morning before work. One thing I love about this is the pump that it comes with. I've previously used their Clean Liquid Makeup which was a bit more difficult to control since that didn't come with a pump at all. The "3-in 1" says it all as it contains the primer, concealer and foundation all together cutting your application time in half. I love the fact that it goes on smoothly and does not leave any cakey mess, but more of a flawless finish. It works well on my sensitive skin and so far, I've made it through the workday with it still intact and I must say, I am impressed! Along with this product, I picked up the Clean Pressed Powder in a green container. I have yet to try this as well as the Fresh Complexion Pocket Powder Foundation which received many great reviews from Covergirl's website. When I get the chance to try these 2 products, I will definitely post a "Try Day Friday" review for those wondering if it is worth buying. As for the other products, I purchased a pack of brow pencils, an extra tweezer (since I had lost my Revlon one) and Palmer's Cocoa Butter to help smooth and lighten the appearance of a few pesky bug bites that have turned into scars.

I must say, I'm pretty happy with the purchases I've made. So far, all the products I've tried have been a hit! As for the other products sent to me by the folks at Dermagist, I've had to stop usage after 3 days of testing due to a breakout that it caused. Unfortunately, I was unable to do any sort of review on it since that was the case and I apologize to those who had been waiting on that. Nevertheless, if you have any questions about the products I've purchased, please feel free and ask away. With that said, I hope you all have a great week!
