April is over!
So this month, I started my last quarter, got an internship, and really just didn’t have a lot of time. But of course, I managed to go on a shopping spree because of the 15% off at Sephora hahah.
Here’s a recap of my month from instagram, which is basically spending my afternoons in DTLA, finding nice places to eat, and rushing to finish my homework behind the scenes:
This month, I spent quite a lot just on makeup and skincare.
I rebought some items that I’m close to finishing.
Olehenriksen Truth Serum: this is by far my favorite serum to date. This is probably my 3rd or 4th bottle. It claims to “help brighten, firm, revive, and smooth skin”. Though I don’t notice too much of the firming and reviving skin part, I do like that it brightens and doesn’t make my face look like it has eraser shavings after I apply makeup .
Klorane Shampoo with Oat Milk: My favorite shampoo at the moment. This will be my 3rd bottle I believe. It’s a really gentle shampoo that works well for my daily hair washing habit.
Klorane Conditioner with Essential Olive Extract: I’ve been using the conditioner with oat milk along with the shampoo and this time I’m just changing conditioner to another line from this brand. I feel like that oat milk conditioner is a bit too gentle and doesn’t seem to do much for my hair. I haven’t tried this one yet but it says it’s for thinning hair so I’m going to try it just for that lol.
Some newer things I’m trying includes:
Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Oil: I’ve tried this in the past few days and I really like it so far. It removes pretty much all the stubborn makeup without having to feel like I’m scrubbing my face too hard. I was using a balm type makeup remover previously and it felt like there was a film of wax that just doesn’t wash off and had to be scrubbed off with a towel. The only down side to this is that it can be a mess when you’re traveling.
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment: I finally decided to try this out thanks to Elizabeth from Clothes to Youuu. It is a bit pricey but I do like the convenience of removing an extra step from my morning (any extra step I could remove, I would do it just for a little bit more sleep). I tend to put on a lip tint and a lip balm but this is a 2-in-1.
Kate Somerville Eradikate Acne Treatment: I haven’t tried this one yet but again Liz recommended it especially for those under the skin kind of pimples. (Note: she is definitely going to be a good sales person if she ever decides to take that route LOL)
I just love getting samples at Sephora. This time in addition to the 3 samples, I decided to just spend my reward points for this Clinique Pep-Start pack. The samples from this one is actually a pretty good size and it comes with 4 products, including an exfoliating cleanser, moisturizer, eye cream, and mascara. Though I mainly got it to try the eye cream. I have terrible dark and extra dry circles…
For May, my goal is to try to save some money hahahah. How was your April and what’s your plan for May?
