Soap and Glory Body Butter

[Amazon]

Hello ShopaHAULics, Tiffany here and this is one of few lotions that my skin doesn’t become irritated to. The Soap and Glory Body Butter line is amazing and has amazing scents that I have tried and all three that I did try were great and didn’t irritate. So, let’s get into this!

Packaging: I love it. I think that this is a cute addition to any nightstand, bathroom counter, bag, etc.

Durability: Once you rub this into your skin, it isn’t greasy or too much, the scent is strong at first but it fades away after you begin your daily work. A little goes a long way! I actually think that this is one of the lotions that works for me and provides an immense amount of moisture.

Pigmentation: White, but you don’t have to worry about it making your skin look like a flourescent bulb, it is clear after and leaves a nice subtle sheen to your body.

Budget: I buy mine at Sephora and the 1.7 oz (the one I purchase) is $6.00. If you are an avid lotion user, it may be best to purchase the 10.1 oz for $22.00, the only down fall of it is that it isn’t easy to travel with.

St. Ives Timeless Collagen Elastin Moisturizer

Hello ShopaHAULics, Tiffany here and my Sephora Instant Moisturizer may be running because this is the best moisturizer I have used, hands down. No, there is no SPF, but this sure does pack a punch to knock out any dry skin you have.

Packaging: This is a 10 oz container so it is larger and will be a problem if you are travelling and have limited space. The packaging is really easy to get a hold of and the cap screws on and off with ease rather than missing a ridge and making it difficult to close it correctly.

Durability: This moisturizer lasts all day, ALL DAY. I love putting it on and knowing that my T-zone, where it is most dry won’t get dry throughout the day. The moisturizer blends in well and doesn’t make the skin look white. You will look a little “glowy” for a couple of minutes but it will set in. I wear this even in the sun which can be a downfall since there is no spf.

Pigmentation: White.

Budget: This moisturizer only runs around $5.50-$6.50! Absolutely affordable and you get a ton for the money you spend. I started using this about two months ago and I haven’t made a dent!

Foundation at Sephora

Hello ShopaHAULics, Tiffany here, and after watching a youtube video by Missglamorazzi, Ingrid, she mentioned something that Sephora offered which was a Skin I.D. type technological advancement where this camera that takes images of your face in the dark will tell you your Skin I.D.

I gave in.

The full name of this amazing piece of information that will help you save tons of money since Sephora foundations are so expensive is Sephora + Pantone Color I.Q. which is a bit of a mouthful but so interesting.

I got a Sephora associate who didn’t really know how to use it but once she got the hang of it, she took a picture of my forehead, cheek and jawline. My cheeks have a redness to them so she had to find a spot on my cheek that didn’t have redness. My Color I.Q. is 4Y06, and if you take that and go to Sephora, type it in, it will show you all the foundations by all the brands Sephora sells that match closest to my skin.

Benefit? The benefit of doing this kind of thing is that you can now go into Sephora and pick a foundation that is a close match. It will save you money. You can also take that range of foundation color and go to the drugstore to see what matches that foundation best so you can also save money on drugstore foundation.

Lighter? Darker? If you want to go lighter or darker, there is an option to the left side that you can pick and that will alter your foundation shades slightly.

Review: Mary Kay Mineral Powder Foundation in Ivory 2

Hello Shopaholics, Tiffany here, and this is actually a pretty good mineral powder foundation. This is my first powder foundation and it is actually a medium coverage foundation. You can definitely make the application lighter or heavier as you please because it is really easy to apply. You apply it with a brush of your choice in the lid and put it all over. I have an oily face and this helps a ton with keeping the shine down.

I would have to say that if you have acne scarring like me, you run through this foundation faster. I have to apply this foundation at least two or three times. I apply it once to get a base all over the face, then I apply it on areas that I see need more coverage, and last I put on my glasses and double check, applying over anywhere else and the neck.

Positive: Pretty good foundation.

Negative: It is $18 but it is definitely a product to try if you have acne scarring.

Review: e.l.f. oil blotting sheets

Hello Shopaholics, Tiffany here, and it is getting hotter and hotter by the day! Seriously, this is the most amazing product and it is only $1.00!!! You can buy this at Target and it is such a great deal! You can also find other affordable makeup from e.l.f. at Target. Now, these are small sheets that suck up oil like a black hole. I love these sheets because I have extremely oily skin that gets out of control quickly when I am outside. To be absolutely honest, when I first bought these I thought that they were probably going to be mediocre because for $1.00 how well will this work? I was totally wrong and this is amazing, it comes with 50 sheets which is always a plus and the fact that it is so cheap is another great plus. If you would like to compare, there are Clean & Clear oil blotting sheets that are $4.99 for the same amount of sheets. Now, I don’t really plan on trying them out because I don’t feel the need to spend the money on the basically same product. Not to say that it wouldn’t be good to see which was better but the fact that this works for my excessively oily skin, I am happy with it. If you have used the Clean and Clear ones let me know in the comments below.

Positive: Best blotting sheets I have used.

Negative: Nothing.

Review: Wet n Wild Eye Makeup Remover

I bought this after I bought the AVON makeup remover. I wanted something as a backup just in case AVON discontinued their product. (Review for the AVON makeup remover here: ) This was only $1-3 dollars I believe and it isn’t something that I would buy again I don’t think. I love that it takes off eye makeup, but it stings. I got this in my eye and it hurt, I wish it didn’t, and the way it rubs against my skin is like an astringent. The makeup remover pulls out more of my lashes which are not good since I barely have any. I would not buy this again and I will try to find another remover that works well and is cheaper, hopefully :]

Positive: Cleans off makeup.

Negative: Stings and smells like astringent.

WTB: Walgreens.
