After wandering around the frozen aisles of Target last night looking for pork dumplings, I realized that I never get offered help when I am in stores. Never sounds like a strong word but I am serious, I have to make direct eye contact or stare directly at an associate before I am acknowledged. I will approach them, I don’t just stare at them but shouldn’t they be approaching me? I don’t know what it is about me, do I seem unfriendly? Maybe I just don’t look like I need help and usually I don’t but for the times that I do, it would be nice if 10 store associates didn’t walk by me without even acknowledging me. I found the dumplings, 25 minutes and a bunch of other shit that I didn’t need later. PSA brick and mortar stores, this is why I generally do my shopping online and have my groceries delivered.
So, I was at the drugstore, again, and all of the L’Oreal skincare was on buy 2 get 1 free. Obviously, I bought four because that is just how I roll – I thought the sale was buy 3 get 1 free, oops. Every year, right around my birthday, I go into anti-aging hyper drive and start obsessively looking at products with outrageous anti-aging claims. I already take good care of my skin, I don’t know why I go into this panic but it’s probably giving me fine lines. I picked up these Revitalift Bright Reveal Brightening Peel Pads with 10% glycolic acid. Tati had these in a favourites video and I have been waiting to purchase them after finishing up some other peel pads. I am actually a tad disappointed in the percentage of glycolic acid, I thought they had the same amount as my current peel but those actually have 20% – we will see how good these work.
My mom used ROC products and she had good skin, I rarely see this brand anymore but apparently these are new – they are Daily Resurfacing Discs. I used one last night, they get really sudsy which surprised me and one side of the disc is abrasive. I have switched to using almost all chemical exfoliants over physical ones, unsure of how I will like these.
I picked up some of these lovely jarred masks from L’Oreal, I really enjoy this range of clay masks. I used the green one this weekend, it is for purifying and mattifying – the clay in these isn’t too drying, I am a fan.
This is not skincare but I mentioned that I am on the hunt for a good drugstore mascara, they had these mascara/primer duos for roughly 5 bucks. The other choice was a Lash Paradise duo and we already know how I feel about that product.
Random find and I think that these were probably just stocked for the holidays, they had teenie tubes of Embryolisse Crème Concentrate. I would love to see this brand carried in American drugstores but I didn’t see any other products. This is a multi-purpose crème, it is very fluid and smells like lilacs – such a find!
That’s it, some interesting finds – I love going to the drugstore to see what they have!
Thanks for stopping by <3
