I’d put this one away a really long time ago, because I wasn’t sure that I liked the smell it has when I’m used to unscented lip balms. I found this while looking for a lipstick and thought I’d give it another chance, and now I really like it. I definitely had to get used to the scent, but I like how much firmer this balm is than most other lip balms which also makes it less sticky.
^^I’ve raved about this before, but I wanted to mention it again. I’m a little embarrassed by how much of this I’ve already used, but it is pretty amazing. It absorbs into your skin within minutes and it has a smell that is a little flower-y without it being too much.
^^I guess I’m a little scent-fixated today, because this hairspray also makes it into this post because of its smell. I don’t know about you, but I hate the smell of hairspray! That typical smell that leaves you unable to breathe afterwards. This hairspray has a sweet smell rather than the harsh typical smell, which I really like. The fact that it holds my hair well is just a contributing factor 😉
^^I am SO happy I decided to make these a while ago (while I still had the old URL)! When you have 80+ nail polishes stocked up in a small drawer, these really save the day when you want to find the polish(es) for your next manicure. Here is a link to the post when I made these which also contain a link to where I bought them.
Oh, no! Another sale!
Yesterday my local Matas had an inventory sale again. I went with my friend again, but this time I was able to control myself a little bit more. A little. Matas has a point-system where you get a certain amount of points per amount of money spent, and my friend reminded me beforehand that I could use some of those points to get a gift certificate for 100 kr. More money to spend!
For my hair I got this:
On the left we have some Argan Oil – Leave in hair cure. I recently got a hair cut and I’m going to try to keep it soft and healthy for as long as possible. On the right is some heat protection spray.
For the skin I got:
On the left is a moisture mask for the face. The cold weather has really started to take a toll on my face and since I HATE applying lotion, this might be a good option instead because you only have to apply the mask once or twice a week.
In the middle is some more og the Nivea In-shower Body Milk. I’ve almost used up my last bottle already! This time I got the one for dry skin instead of normal skin, again because of the cold weather.
On the right is Nivea refreshing cleansing milk, I use this for removing make-up and I was almost out despite the fact that a bottle lasts close to forever.
As far as nail polishes go I got:
Another Sally Hansen complete salon manicure – this one in the colour ‘Rule of Plum’.
I can also cross off one of the colours on my wish list – Essie in the colour ‘Watermelon’.
And finally I got a very delicate yellow from L’Oreal in the colour ‘Lemon Meringue’
More for the nails:
More Sally Hansen! Considering how my Sally Hansen collection was at zero before Wednesday and is now at 6, I’ll say it has grown pretty quickly! I’ve heard so much good about Sally Hansen and with the sale on the brand these last couple of days I finally decided to try them out!
On the left is their Miracle Nail Thickener. I know I already have the L’Oreal one, but to be honest I have my doubts about that one working. Don’t know why, but I might be proven wrong.
In the middle is their Diamond Flash Fast Dry Top Coat.
And on the left is their Smooth & Strong Base Coat.
I am almost out of my Essie – All in One top and base coat and I was going to get another one of those, but then I read somewhere online that it’s actually better to have those separated as they have different functions so with some of my birthday money I decided to splurge on these and see if the internet has it right 🙂
That was all for this time! I know it may seem like a lot, but apart from last time I think I only got the ‘necessities’ this time 🙂Love, Nanna
