Drugstore Haul


Hello! Today I have a drugstore haul for you. I went for one thing and came back with 5, it happens.

This is what I originally went to purchase. The Olay ProX Advanced Cleansing System Facial Brush. I've been on a "I need to take better care of my skin! " kick. I've wanted to try the Clarisonic brush for a long time but I really can't justify spending 125$ on it. My friend told me this works just as well, and it's only 30$. So I took a chance and bought it. Now I know the Clarisonic has different brushes for different skin types, and I'm pretty sure this one does not.. Which is a con. But I really just wanted to try one of these face scrubber brushes out and if I end up really loving it, maybe I will invest in the Clarisonic one day. I've used it twice, and felt my face had never been cleaner after using it! So I'm liking it so far :)

Next I got this Almay Brow Defining Pencil in Brunette. I've come to realize all the brow pencils I own are too light, so I needed one more fit for me. I usually use the Maybelline Define-a-brow..but they didn't have a shade any darker than medium brown, which I already have. I actually like this one better because it has a spoolie on the end as opposed to a little comb. Win.

I also picked up this Maybelline Baby Lips Dr. Rescue in Too Cool. I love these! I have another in Just Peachy, but i wanted the clear one for nighttime use. I own a ton of baby lips but these are by far my favorite because I feel they actually do something for my lips. I'll admit I bought most of the other ones because the packaging is too cute and they are very inexpensive. I love the menthol tingly cooling feeling these give me. I do feel my lips have softened so much since I bought these. I'll probably end up with them all because I'm nuts.

NYX single eyeshadow in White. If you read my ELF Haul, you'll know my favorite highlight shade is the matte white from the 1$ Drama Quad. You'll also know that I repurchased and was very disappointed because it's nothing like the original one I have.. So I bought this. It's not as great as my ELF one, but it works just fine for me! Plus is a ton more product and these are like, 4$.


Finally, this Sally Hansen polish in Green With Envy. Simply because it's Halloween time, and I do not own a lime green polish. And that, is reason enough for me! My poor, once beautiful fingernails, have suffered 4 losses this week and work. I'm trying to nurse them back to health so I can paint them this wonderful color. Wish me luck.

So there's my haul. I haven't posted in two and days and I'm slightly devastated but that. So I'm hoping to have another post up tonight. I have a few posts I'm working on but sometimes things just don't go in my favor! Oh well. I hope you guys enjoyed this!

Thanks so much for reading!!




  1. Nice haul! I have also wanted to try one of those face brushes and have thought about buying that one. I heard you can get a clairsonic on eBay for like half the price!

    1. I never thought of checking eBay! Great idea! And thank you!!

  2. Great haul!! I love spoolies on brow things and I am obsessed with Babylips!!! Yeah, the Clarisonic is also amazing, but all you really need it their baby version, the Mia, if you end up liking face brushes :)

    1. Thanks Margo! The Mia is what I was looking at, I love the fun colors. We will see!
