Another (tiny) Haul ..this time with mini reviews: Indeed Labs, Vichy, Benefit

I was recently at the drugstore picking up some necessities and instead of getting my usual go to products I thought I would pick up a few new items to try. The first thing I got is the Indeed Labs pepta-bright. Now that my skin is a little less prone to breaking out I wanted to get something that would fade those pesky dark scars that get left behind. I figured if Caroline Hirons decided to give it her stamp of approval it must be somewhat good. Fingers crossed this work and my skin stay blemish free.

The next thing I got is another skin care product and it is the Vichy Pureté Thermale 3-in-1 One Step Cleanser (cleansing milk). Now the only reason I got this was because I needed a new cleanser and it was on sale for I believe $12.99 in comparison to $19.99 and because it is a non-foaming cleanser. I did try this out last night and I hate to say I did not like it. The package claims to remove eye makeup and mine barely budged and I don't wear waterproof eye makeup, and I found none of my other face make up moving either. The cleanser also claims to tone and cleanse the skin. Once I was done cleansing, I touched my face and it was soft but it felt as though there was some sort of film left behind from the cleanser. Afterwards, I grabbed my toner and a cotton round and I found there to be quite  a bit of makeup on the cotton round which of course means using this cleanser will probably just leave me with congested skin. Quite unfortunate especially because I massaged the cleanser in quite a bit, I must admit I had high hopes and was sadly disappointed.

The last thing I got was a make up item, and it is the coveted benefit's They're Real mascara. In the last little while, I have heard and seen so much hype about this mascara all over YouTube and the blogosphere. Now, I've never tried a higher end mascara because honestly I have always loved all the on ones I try at the drugstore. But with all the hype my interests were piqued and I thought I would give it a go. I tried it out for the first time today and honestly I didn't really like it, I found it didn't give me much volume and made my lashes feel crispy and look spidery. However, it did lengthen my lashes quite a bit and I do like the shape of the wand. I heard if you use it a bit more it is suppose to get better so I'm hoping next time I use it I will more impressed. I think I'm going to head back to the drugstore and get my favorites: L'Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black and Covergirl Lash Blast

  1. I had the same experience with benefit's They're Real Mascara. I found it very clumpy. It did get a little better with use. I agree, I did like the wand. Great Site! Definitely following you:)

    1. Yes, I think I have come to the conclusion I like dryer formulas, I'm trying to keep using it hoping it dries out a bit and I like it better.
