It’s officially September, #pumpkinspiceallthethings. Did you mark September 8 yet? Starbucks rakin’ it early for us PSL fans eh? Too bad I can’t have coffee anymore, no thanks to GERD (gastroesophageal reflux), more on that in another post. Anyways, let’s revisit August one last time and see what moi used up to the very last drop.
The Body Shop body scrubs remain my favorite, month after month, tub after tub. Whenever they run 3+3, I hoard like there’s apocalypse happening. Needless to say, I have repurchased again. I also love the jumbo shower gel, Strawberry is nice but I like Satsuma better.
Every now and then I do have salon appointments for hair color or touch up. And yes, I have been coloring my hair since time immemorial. With that said, rehydration and color protection are bare necessities. I will most likely repurchase Alterna Bamboo UV+ Color Protection Rehab Deep Hydration Masque because aside from its inviting fragrance, it leaves my hair soft, bouncy and manageable. On the other hand, while Schwarzkopf Essence Ultime Color Radiance Mask hydrates my hair well enough, I find the fragrance extremely strong.
By default, Cetaphil Facial Cleanser remains my go-to when it comes to drugstore brand. It’s gentle, affordable and available everywhere. I have also used up Caudalie Instant Detox Mask (deluxe size), it’s a clay mask which leaves my face soft after rinsing. I’m not sure if if I’m going to repurchase it because I have mega-tons of masks waiting to be consumed. Technically my first makeup to have used up, By Terry Baume de Rose (part of holiday set featured here) is a great lip balm-slash-hydrator. I will repurchase the full size once I finish the other four.
Finally let’s talk makeup wipes. How convenient they are! My trip to Sephora, Target, Walmart, CVS, or even Korean store won’t be complete without these wipes. I have no particular favorite, whatever catches my eyes, I grab!
Can I tell you something funny but kind of a wake up call to me? while at work last week, hub texted me that my shower rack collapsed. He said he heard a loud crash so he ran upstairs, only to be greeted with ALL of my bath products scattered in the tub. Poor shower rack gave up on me. Shame, shame, shame. I haven’t had the chance to buy a replacement so at the moment I use the bath tub nook to store my essentials. Ha, ’til it spreads like virus again!
