Collective Haul!

I have accumulated a bunch of stuff over the past month and a half or so and I thought it would be appropriate to share a haul. With the changing season I have been updating both my skincare and hair routine and I've definitely collected some goodies. I've tested out a few of these things and with those items I can provide a mini review. The main places I picked up things were from Birchbox, HauteLook, Bed Bath and Beyond, Marshalls, Ipsy, Walmart, and my mom picked me up a few things from Shopper's Drug Mart when they went to Canada last month.

Giovanni Invigorating Shampoo, Tea Tree Triple Threat
Head & Shoulders, Dry Scalp Care Almond Oil Shampoo
Neutrogena, Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask
Macadamia Natural Oil, Deep Repair Masque
With the changing season my scalp has decided to develop some flakes. I did some research on it and I believe that I have a dry scalp not dandruff but either way I picked up these guys so I can switch between the two for my biweekly hair washing schedule. One is specially targeted at dry scalp while the other a stronger clarifying shampoo that I like to use at the end of the week to just strip everything out. I also randomly picked up the Neutrogena hair mask because at this point I just can't get enough of them. I've already been using the shampoos and they are working great for the flakes! I found this tube of the Deep Repair Masque, I've tried the single use packet before and wasn't overly impressed so I'll get a few more uses out of this tube and form a better opinion.
Paula's Choice, Clear Pore Normalizing Cleanser
Paula's Choice, Clear Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution
Paula's Choice, Clear Daily Skin Clearing Treatment 2.5% and 5%
Queen Helene, Grape Seed Extract Peel Off Masque
Suki Skincare, Transformative Clay Cleanser
Suki Skincare, Concentrated Balancing Toner
Suki Skincare, Exfoliate Foaming Body Cleanser
I finally got aggressive with my acne and picked up this Paula's Choice kit. When that wasn't enough I ordered the extra strength spot treatment and that really did the trick. I think a combination of everything going on is finally stabilizing my skin and I couldn't be more pleased. This peel off mask I am mildly obsessed with, it's really fun to peel of and leaves my skin so soft afterwards. These three Suki products I grabbed off HauteLook and I'm excited to try them out!
Covergirl, Clump Crusher Mascara in Very Black
Covergirl, Clump Crusher Extensions Mascara in Very Black
Rimmel London, Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown
Wet n Wild, Matte Lipstick in Sugar Plum Fairy and Mauve Outta Here
Milani, Clear Brow Gel
Hard Candy, Glamoflauge in Tan
I went with the intention of picking up a replacement for my Clump Crusher and ended up with a lot of goodies. I thought it was time to finally try out the Extensions formula, and I also grabbed the brow pencil by the recommendation of a friend. I was looking for the new limited edition matte lipsticks but these two caught my eye and at buy one get one 50% off (for a $2 lipstick...) I couldn't say no. Finally I wanted to try this brow gel since I heard it is better the Maybelline one I always use and I picked up this concealer that I've always been intrigued by.
Annabelle, Biggy Zebra Bronzing Powder
Annabelle, Skinny Brow Liner in Universal Medium x2
Annabelle, Blushon in Rosewood and Rose Fawn
My mom recently took a trip to Canada so naturally I set her on a mission to pick me up some Annabelle goodies which is a drugstore brand that is only sold there. I didn't really have time to research anything so I told her bronzers and blushes because those are always safe choices and then she also got me the brow pencils. I think I will be set on brow products for awhile!
Julep in Kai and Sylvia
Sephora Formula X in Firecracker, TNT, Maniacal, and Blast Off
Ciate, Silhouette
OPI, Next Stop...The Bikini Zone
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel, All Chalked Up
Color Club in The Uptown, Bundle of Joy, Wild and Willing
I went a little nail polish crazy.....in my defense I haven't bought a bottle for about six months now and even after I added all these there is still space on my racks! The Julep, Formula X, and Ciate were all amazing finds at Marshalls! These are my first Formula X polishes and they are all the top coat effects. I've used Firecracker (the orange) so far and I'm in love, I'm so glad I grabbed all the other colors. The OPI Sally Hansen and Color Club all came from Bath and Body Works and miraculously (aside from the purple) are all shades I do not have already!

What have you hauled lately?
