Blune Day 17: A Wee Drugstore Haul

Friends, I did a thing and it involves makeup, body care and superstore aka I went to get toothpaste and this happened. The body care items I got earlier this month at shoppers, I basically keep them in business. The makeup stems from the fact that I needed toothpaste. I bought the Toms of Maine whole care toothpaste because it’s my favourite cruelty free toothpaste! I bought a few bits the other weekend just for some testing purposes and also as a foundation backup for my graduation day (which I didn’t end up wearing, makeup to come in a post later this week).

I was super curious about the Joe Fresh neutrals palette and alas broke down and made it my fourth palette of the year! I know it’s an odd choice, but I have been into super light washes of colour on the lids. I love all the shades and this also seems like it’s the perfect travel palette size!

I also picked up the wet ‘n’ wild photofocus foundation, I should say I don’t wear foundation everyday yet I own quite a few. I kept hearing about this on Full Coverage podcast and I was curious. It is great. But it smells like paint, which isn’t a surprise because it was only $7 but it is easily sheered out and has great coverage. I recommend moisturizing well beforehand to because it has the tendency to cling to dry patches

The Essence primer Fresh and Fit glow pore minimizing primer. That is a mouthful.  Okay this was an impulse purchase. I have never seen this before and decided to try it out, it was only $5.99 which is kind of suspect ingredient wise but so far it’s okay! I don’t notice a noticeable radiance. The search for a cruelty free glowy base continues! I’ll use this up but it’s nothing super exciting!

I also got two body care items which is always fun! I got the Soap and Glory scrub of your life body exfoliator and the Nivea in shower body lotion. I was curious about both because it’s the summer and I really didn’t feel like putting on cream after the shower because my apartment is very sweaty. Honestly i think it works! I have been noticing my skin is softer and more hydrated! I enjoy the convenience of having it the shower and not having to do anything after. The Soap and Glory exfoliator is great, but its not Lush exfoliator both in scent and in effectiveness. I like it, I am going to use it on the daily of course, and its a beautiful not too artificial scent. If you are looking for something that smells summery and is a good exfoliator for the summer this could be a good one for you! 

Have you picked up anything new lately?

    1. Ou good to know! I don’t wear foundation too often but when I have worn it a few times it stayed in place all day so I’m excited to try it more 🙂
