New Hauls: SilkyGirl, Sukin, Essential and Anti-Acne Products..

Hello world. I know I've been away for a while.

To be honest, I have posts I've been wanting to post piling up. But... sometimes you just don't feel like doing so. I wanted to do reviews super badly but I get really long-winded until I don't feel like writing anymore. Hauls are easier to do but after doing them, I feel like a terrible hoarder.


 So anyway I'm back today. I just can't sleep. Might as well right. Just a quick October haul.

Picked up 2 SilkyGirl Blockbuster Color Palettes in Bare Classics and Smokey Charm when Watsons was selling these for half off. ^.^ Had wanted this long ago but I was never willing to pay full price for this. Patience paid off. Yay! Bare Classics is just a great everyday neutral quad to have. Absolutely love the colours in Smokey Charm which is a really pretty colourful quad. Might even post an eyeshadow tutorial later...a sloppy one though.

Picked up another Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner in Blackberry too. I owned the brown one and it's my favourite everyday go-to eyeliner. Blackberry is a deep plum shade when swatched on the hand. But on my brown eyes, it just ended up looking blackish brown. Wished I had picked up the navy shade instead.

And picked up some skincare/haircare I really needed. I ran out of my favourite products for fighting acne - Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Oil and Nixoderm Ointment Cream . Had to stock up on this.

For haircare, I ran out of hair treatment product. Previously I was using L'oreal Elvive Smooth-Intense Smoothing Masque which I do like for keeping my hair frizz-free but I wanted to try something new. Picked up Essential Ultra Honey & Shea Butter Intensive Hair Mask, which bubzbeauty (youtube) raved about in an older video. It smells really heavenly, with a sweet honey scent and my hair does feel smoother with this. :)

 And I've also been looking for a night cream for a long while so I also bought Sukin Moisture Restoring Night Cream, when I found it selling for half off at Watsons. Super happy with this purchase as the cream works really well for me and I love the scent of it. It has a citrusy vanilla scent similar to Sukin Protein Shampoo (which I need to do a review for it soon) and I love using that shampoo just because of the scent. It keeps me happy. The cream is rich yet not super thick and my skin absorbs it relatively fast. But some might not like it as it has alcohol content. Perhaps I am going a review for this one... :)
