Re: Amazing APRIL Hauls! 🌸 πŸ’ 🌺

Hmmm. Have had a visit with the financial advisor today and she advised me to quit spending like crazy lol.  I decided to round up all the "little things" I have purchased over the past couple weeks - some opened and some not - some I have already started using and some I have not... I don't keep the boxes after I start using the product so some of these things are no longer in their boxes.  It would probably be more accurate to say this the product of a few late March and early April hauls... I probably forgot a few samples and a few products but I grabbed everything that was 1) recently purchased in the past 2 weeks and 2) handy on top of my vanity.  Excuse the very chaotic and gross looking pictures, I just wanted to do this quickly and get a feel for how much I had purchased... Too much I think lol.  Here is stuff I bought from Sephora though the Vichy BB cream and Roche-Posay sunscreen were a gift from my mum who purchased them at Shoppers during weekly points or seniors event i can't remember.  The little hand  cream is from the body shop - and those small hair products are not promos I purchased them online from Sephora so I could test the products before buying the bigger sizes - same thing with the little FRESH lotus preserve cream - it's a travel/tiny size that I actually bought to try it out.  The sizes look weird in these pics though the stuff at the bottom looks a little bigger.  After I took this picture I finally opened the KVD concealer brush i tried it with both the new Becca concealer and the benefit erase paste - both the concealers and that brush ROCK.

 I also got a tiny lil' Lush haul (under $25) - I did get a couple soap samples but I used them up already : )

@RoseCharlie if I ever saw a financial advisor she'd probably tell me to stop spending so much at Sephora since that's my main expense! Smiley Very Happy 

XOXO,
Marieke

Re: Amazing APRIL Hauls! 🌸 πŸ’ 🌺

@MariekeBTLOL I know what you mean, when she was pointing out how much I spent on taxis and bars and takeout I kept thinking "hmmmm, so by cooking at home more often and walking I actually be getting way more cute stuff from Sephora!"

Re: Amazing APRIL Hauls! 🌸 πŸ’ 🌺

@RoseCharlie I like the way you think. Smiley Wink 

XOXO,
Marieke

Re: Amazing APRIL Hauls! 🌸 πŸ’ 🌺

@RoseCharlie LUSH, YAY!!

Re: Amazing APRIL Hauls! 🌸 πŸ’ 🌺

@imlostagainI LOVE LUSH! : ) I really raided their boxing day BOGO sale - you got to get in there SO early though... I wish they had that sale more than once a year! : ) The "Rose Jam Shower Gel" they make at Christmas is my all-time favourite soap and so I try to load up on it so that i have enough to last me until next Christmas...

Re: Amazing APRIL Hauls! 🌸 πŸ’ 🌺

My husband is my financial advisor lol. He says the same thing! Smiley Tongue 

Re: Amazing APRIL Hauls! 🌸 πŸ’ 🌺

@Mcakes: ) I can see that being very useful but also a little tiny bit annoying at the same time... My partner likes to think he's got solid financial skills but he's a pretty big "dandy" (do people use that word?) I mean that he spends a lot on clothes so he can't say too too much about my beauty purchases though he does complain about the space my products take up lol... : )

Re: Amazing APRIL Hauls! 🌸 πŸ’ 🌺

lol!! It's all about checks and balances being a two way street @RoseCharlie Smiley Wink 

Re: Amazing APRIL Hauls! 🌸 πŸ’ 🌺

I'm glad my boyfriend also has terrible spending habits, he'd nag me so much about my shopping problem.  :') 

Have you tried out the CEO cream yet?  My eyes practically zoomed in on that... I don't know why I didn't take advantage of the promo code that was going around.

Re: Amazing APRIL Hauls! 🌸 πŸ’ 🌺

@Nickelliebear1: ) haha my boyfriend is the same though in recent years he's been getting better about that - uh-uh nagging here we come!  I LOVE that cream! I have tried a little foil that came with an order a while back so when I saw the opportunity to grab another few foils I pounced on it because I feel like it takes a few tries to really get a feel for how your skin reacts to the cream... I really like it though, it's nice and rich and makes your skin so soft! Also - I always invariably get cream into my eyes somehow (I guess I rub my eyes a lot) so as stupid as this sounds, one of my criteria is that it can't burn my eyes if a little bit of cream gets in there which unfortunately a lot of day creams with sunscreen seem to do for some reason I can't understand... I'm in the middle of trying to pick a new skincare routine right now so I'm trying a bunch of stuff but I think the CEO cream is probably my favourite so far! : )

Re: Amazing APRIL Hauls! 🌸 πŸ’ 🌺

@Nickelliebear1The Darphin products are really nice I think (if you were looking to try a cream) I know it does't have the same blend of things but right now I'm using those in my night skincare routine if they feel really luxurious and soothing.  The sizes are really generous on those promos and all 3 options are still available! : ) I saw that one person had said they disliked the scent and I found that a bit surprising because I find it soooo light, pleasant and inoffensive.  It's a very light but pleasant chamomile scent meant to relax you, I believe there may be an "aromatherapy" component to the Darphin products... It's the reason I quite like this as a before bed time routine.  In any case, if you were thinking of placing an order i think this is a very very generous promo and I'm loving those products as well...

Re: Amazing APRIL Hauls! 🌸 πŸ’ 🌺

The clear makeup organizer is from Amazon. I liked it because I can keep my makeup brushes in the bathroom without worrying about feces flying around lol They said how our toothbrushes have them, so I needed something to keep my makeup brushes covered, and the container came with the purple beads.

 

I haven't purchased a binder in forever, but I ordered it from Amazon too so I can stay organized. Got some colorful pens to write with, also from Amazon. Planner is from At A Glance website. I feel like I'm in school again.

 

Bag is from Nastygal. I absolutely hate Nastygal now. I was one of the victims who purchased during their 70% off sale before their new takeover and got scammed. There's a lot of us. You can google it and read it on Sitejabber. I will never buy anything from that site again.

Re: Amazing APRIL Hauls! 🌸 πŸ’ 🌺

Awesome haul!  I'm sorry about the scam Smiley Sad  @meecheroo

Re: Amazing APRIL Hauls! 🌸 πŸ’ 🌺

Thanks! Yeah, it was a nasty experience. They lived up to their name.

Re: Amazing APRIL Hauls! 🌸 πŸ’ 🌺

@meecheroo I really like the makeup organizer! That is a great design! The pens and binders are very pretty colors. The bag is pretty, I have never heard of Nastygirl, and I am glad I haven't!  Is that candy in the picture? 

Re: Amazing APRIL Hauls! 🌸 πŸ’ 🌺

lol yeah candy. I went to a local Japanese store and got some goodies. I wanted to try a Japanese shampoo, but it was $18, so I was like nope.

Re: Amazing APRIL Hauls! 🌸 πŸ’ 🌺

Oh my goodness I LOVE Melona bars @meecheroo! I haven't had those in years. Idk if they are only in Hawaii or what but finding them on the mainland is super hard. Enjoy that whole box for me please Smiley Tongue

Re: Amazing APRIL Hauls! 🌸 πŸ’ 🌺

They're so addicting. It's hard to eat just one lol

Re: Amazing APRIL Hauls! 🌸 πŸ’ 🌺

Melona bars!! I used to get them every time I went to the Korean market Smiley Very Happy

 

At least that bag is super gorgeous btw. Lovely haul!
