Primer Collection 2018

So, I am continuing this series until I have ran through everything that I have photographed in my collection as of January when I took all of these pictures. I have been trying not to overload my feed too much with these posts, but also I was so behind in the new year. I am at a more comfortable place with my blogging now, where I have room to diversify my content a bit. I am thinking about posting about getting back to going to college, college shopping mini haul, and how online college is. Let me know if any of you are interested in that. I will probably end up doing it anyways, because I think that would be great for others to know that you can ALWAYS go back and finish.


I am super happy to only be seeing 5 primers, four of which are deluxe sizes. I am currently trying to use up the PTR and Benefit primers. I will move on to my full size next along with Cover FX when I want a more glowy look. Once Cover FX is done, I will pull in Smashbox for when I get tired of Studio Gear, which by the way, has little shimmer particles in it. I believe it is a little glowy as well too. It was been a long time, since I have worn it though. I cannot say for sure. I am not worried about my primer stash. I am confident that by the end of the year that I will be looking for a new primer and I already have a couple on my Loves List to try out when that time comes.

I am hoping that more of my collection will become pared down like this. I know my lip products will always be CRAZY, but I am hoping for my eye makeup drawer to be less stuffed by the end of the year. I know what I like now, so I am definitely a smarter consumer than when I first started out. I got so overwhelmed being able to buy anything I wanted, because I had a job that paid well for the first time. My first “real” job. Having a kid brings you down to earth fast on what you can truly afford.

For Peter Thomas Roth Beta Hydroxy Acid 2% Acne Wash

Acne Wash

What it is: A gently exfoliating oil-free dye-free fragrance-free alcohol-free salicylic acid 2% medicated cleanser.

Key Ingredients: water, sodium laureth sulfate, pro vitamin B, and methylparaben.

How it feels/smells/looks: It smells like a strong acne wash or salicylic acid spot treatment. It is a watery gel formula that is easy to emulsify to form a foamy wash. It is clear in a gray tinted container.

Why I like it: I really love this face wash. It is gentle on my skin and I feel like it really helps my acne heal and go away. I would love to buy this, but I learned that it was discontinued on the PTR website and I cannot find it anywhere. Apparently, the kit that I bought was old, which was why it was half price. They should really tell you why kits and other items are discounted at Sephora. So, it might be useless to review this product, but I know that my local Sephora is still selling these kits. Maybe only this one product is discontinued? If anyone knows, let me know. 🙂

With Love,
