Heya Aspiring Gurus!
I am currently working on putting up a new Entertainment Weekly up to make up for the one that got cut off, because of the storm that I was experiencing. I want to wait until Friday to put it up, because Thursday Project Runway airs and I’d rather not review two project runways next week. I am going to try to keep my entertainment weeklies on Fridays only, so it will be every Friday post to tune into. Now that I have told you guys what is going on, it is time to get into my small haul at Walmart. As you can see, I go to Walmart frequently for things that I run out of a lot, but I do like for my makeup and certain things to be high-end. I think that if you can get away with a low nd project that works perfect for your skin, than go with it! It is better than spending way too much money for something that works just as well or not well enough. I actually have some exciting news about my skin care routine, but I am going to post about it tomorrow, because I have no time today. Here’s the haul!
A Wimpy Walmart Haul
The Face Tissues:
Kleenex Hand Towels
2.67 US DOLLARS
55 Hand Towels
Yes, I did repurchase these and I will let you all know about the 30 Challenge tomorrow, but as you can see, it has been a success of sorts. I really like how absorbent these towels are and I save the ones that I use on my face to pick up any cat vomit in my room. They dry out nice and are very sturdy for the job. They are very similar to bounty paper towels and I think I want to look into that. I will probably buy a roll and try them, but you cannot keep them as clean like they are in the box. I will contemplate this. When I move into my apartment (still trying to find a job that would pay more to afford this), I might buy them, because I know they will not get dirty if I keep them in a special place. The actual box looks different. It is brightly colored, but I was like how many picture of a paper towel box do I need to upload? You know? It’s a waste of space to show you the same product in different packaging, unless it was really amazing!
The Acne Oil:
Spring Valley Pharmaceutical Grade 100% Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil
7.96 US DOLLARS
2 fl oz
I really needed to have tea tree oil ready for when I run out, so when I saw this in the vitamin section at Walmart, I knew I had to have it and it was the last one. *sticks tongue out brattily* I like that I know it is 100% and not have to worry about it. I trust this vitamin brand. My family has bought from them for years. When I run out of Vitamin C toner, I can use half of the tea tree oil and fill the rest with water and have a Lush-like toner for half the price. I will use deionized water though, not tap water. When I do this, I will definitely make a DIY post about it. I will use this straight up on acne though. I figure if I’m sensitive to 100%, I’ll reduce to 50%, until I find the right ratio that my skin likes. I’ll let you know what that is, when I start trials.
The Hopefully Milky Facial Cleanser:
Aveeno Active Naturals Positively Radiant Brightening Cleanser With Moisture-Rich Soy Extract
6.47 US DOLLARS
6.7 fl oz
This was surprisingly not that expensive at Walmart. I swear at my local Kmart it is at least 9 if not almost 11 dollars. The last time I bought Alveeno it was almost 10 US DOLLARS. I am hoping that this will be a milky gentle cleanser for the mornings or in the evenings when I do a facial mask or scrub or something. I like the moisture and brightening aspect of this cleanser. I need to balance out the oil production in my face and if I moisturize, my body wont need to compensate and produce oil. I still use certain products to strip the oil and deal skin on my face, but I am looking for moisture rich products to rehydrate the face. I’ll let you know what I think about this product.
That’s my haul! Look out for an empties and favorites post coming soon, because August is almost over, ladies!!! And gents! 🙂 Have you tried these products? What do you think? Have you tried anything similar? What works for you? Let me know in a comment and request anything your hearts desire!
