Oh, Target. I’m ashamed to admit I’ve spent many a Saturday night strolling through the beautiful makeup aisles, getting lost in home decor, and leaving with a much larger dent in my wallet than I anticipated. Today I managed to keep my spending under control since I also did all my grocery shopping there for the week. But I doubt anyone wants to see the lunch meat and ridiculous amount of Amy’s bowls I bought, I’ll show you the “fun stuff” I picked up yesterday.
My skin has been going crazy lately, which is a bummer since this has generally been a better year for my acne-prone skin. When my skin was looking really good I was using these two products interchangeably and decided to give them another go.
Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser: This is the first drugstore face wash I had found that had charcoal as its main cleansing ingredient, and I think it works really well with my skin. It’s gentle but effect, without the harsh drying effect of a cleanser with benzoyl peroxide.
St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub: People have different opinions on this scrub, but I personally love it. I love using abrasive scrubs several times a week because it removes dead skin and I really feel like it gets every bit of makeup off my skin, and this St. Ives one is tried and true.
Justin’s Organic Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups: I was SO excited when I saw that Target was selling these peanut butter cups, because they are heavenly. They sell them at Starbucks now and I personally think they’re better than Reese’s, because they’re not as sickly sweet. I only picked up two, but I wish these came in 12 packs or more!
Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham: I’ll be honest and say I wouldn’t have picked this up if it wasn’t for a review assignment for work. I’m not a huge fan of Girls, but after reading a bit of the introduction I think I’ll enjoy Dunham’s writing more than her television. And I had a 25% off coupon from the Cartwheel app, so it was a good deal.
Maybelline Color Sensational The Mattes Lip Color in “Divine Wine”: The most exciting part of this haul: makeup!!!! I only allowed myself to purchase one item, and after seeing this beautiful dark burgundy shade swatched in several YouTube videos, I knew this was the one in the collection I wanted to pick up. Now if only the weather would get cool enough that I could start wearing dark lips every day!
