Beauty Haul #1

I really don't understand where this urge to shop comes from, but it needs to stop. Right now. But first, a mini haul. I didn't buy these at the same time, but I decided to just save them into one haul. The Body Shop was having a 40% off sale the whole online store, so I decided to pick up some things I've been eyeing. AND Sephora was having a 15% off sale, which we all know is rare. It was just too good to say no.

The Blueberry Body Butter was one of the first things I ever bought from the Body Shop when I was still in middle school. Oh my god, I sound so old. But I've loved the smell for a long time and I was so sad when they discontinued it. They recently brought it back and added other products to the line, such as the Blueberry Body Lotion, body scrub, and lip balm. It's not too strong and it's a mixture of fruity and floral scents. I don't know how blueberries smell like, but probably not like this. Anyways, it doesn't matter, it smells good to me.

This Early Harvest Raspberry Body Scrub is a brand new line from the Body Shop. This looks EXACTLY like jam. It looks so yummy, but don't eat it. This smell is definitely more tart than the blueberry one. There are actual seeds in there too.

I've always been into skin care, but recently I noticed my skin seemed to have more lines. I know I'm only twenty-three, but it's never too young to start taking care of your skin. Serums are an important step of any skincare routine, and I wanted something effective, but not too expensive. I wanted to try out the Vitamin E Moisture Serum and Aloe Protective Serum both, so I've been using the Vitamin E one at night and the Aloe one in the morning. First impressions: I like the Vitamin E more, mostly because of the smell. The Aloe serum has a weird smell. I'll let you guys know how they work out after I've tested them longer.

Cleansing oils are all the rage right now. Every single brand seems to have one. This Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil is a new addition to the Camomile line. I haven't used it yet, but it smelled divine, just like flowers.

My picture doesn't do it justice, but I'll probably do an in-depth review of the powder soon, so I won't say too much. I'm late to the game with the Ambient Lighting Powder, but better late than never right? I got the shade Dim Light, which is a peachy beige color (I can't believe it's sold out on the Sephora website right now). The Veil Mineral Primer is the silkiest primer I've ever tried. It glides onto your skin so smoothly, it feels like nothing. It is quite pricey, but it's worth every penny.

Is there anything you've been wanting to try? Or anything you want me to go more in-depth about? Let me know!
