New Skincare Items


Ran out of a few essentials and decided to take a look through the drug store...
picked up a couple of new things along the way!


Rexall had a big fat bottle of La Roche Posay Effaclar gel cleanser (targeted towards sensitive and oily skin - cha ching!!) on offer with a mini Effaclar Duo - which you all know I love, and I ran out of - so of course I grabbed it and am excited to give it a try.
It is soap free, has a very soft and clean scent, and is paraben free... like all other La Roche Posay products.

Along with that I was in dire need of a new toner. I hadn't used a toner in a while but when the weather gets warmer I find myself needing one. For the past 2 years I was using Lush Tea Tree Water but I figured it was time to try something new... Burt's Bees Radiance Toner seems quite nice. Has a very lovely and light scent, is all natural, contains no alcohol or parabens, and has a bunch of soothing ingredients like aloe and royal jelly. I love reading "ingredients" lists, can't you tell? Haha...

Anyways will give these a whirl and report back, as always.
Any new skincare purchases for you this weekend??

  4. Hello!

    I tried the cleanser but my skin got a rection from it, so I had to stop using it (small bumps on the forehead). I am now using the REN clay cleanser and it works much better for my skin, although the smell is awful. I will be looking for another cleanser eventually, one that has a more pleasant smell! Sadly we dont have cetaphil here i norway :(

  11. Have you tried The Body Shops's Seaweed toner? It's gorgeous for oily skin, really gentle but helps keep the oil away. Can't live without that one! =)
