A Haulish Type Post

Yes, I'm still on my beauty ban (and doing very well, I might add)... but somehow I still managed to get some new products in my hot little hands. Here are a few products I'll be trying in the next little while. First up are the products I received by redeeming my Glymm points. I saw lots of beauty bloggers redeeming recently so it reminded me that I should probably use mine. Since I loved this product so much when I received a sample in my September Glymm bag, I ordered the Evolvh shampoo and conditioner set, which included a free full size styling cream.



The next item I ordered was also sampled in the September Glymm bag. I ordered the Villainess dulces en fuego warming body creme and scrub duo. I've only tried the body creme and the more I used it, the more I liked it. I've heard great things about the body scrub so I'm excited to try it. :)



Next is a product that I won in a recent Loose Button giveaway on Facebook. I've never heard of No Bleeding Lips but it's basically a clear lip liner applied outside your natural lip line to prevent your lipstick from bleeding. I think this will come in handy in the fall/winter when I start to wear more of my dark lip colours.



The last product is something I received when I went to the BlushPretty Beautiful Face Forum featuring Kaia Naturals. I love the juicy bamboo facial cleansing cloths so I was really eager to check out Kaia Natural's new product line - nature's matte finish, a 2-in-1 primer and skincare collection. Mary Further, Kaia's founder, was onsite to answer questions and she was literally a wealth of information. I learned so much and I'm hoping to share some little tidbits with you in future blog posts (once I do a little more research on the topics we discussed). At the end of the event, we got to take home a little goody bag containing a bamboo cleansing cloth and the new 24-hour face cream. I can't wait to try this product!



Happy Thursday everyone!

  1. i'm always nervous to redeem points. i have this irrational fear that if i redeem them, something better will come out and i won't have enough points because i've used them. this is what i struggle with at sephora which is why i have over 1000 points!

    ps - i LOVE kaia products, esp the face wipes. dammit, i just remembered i had a whole bag that i bought esp for my vacay and just realized that i forgot to bring them with me :(

    1. i'm the opposite, i'm always so paranoid that my points will be taken away (either through a policy change or due to an expiry date) that i redeem more quickly than i probably should. i love the kaia naturals face wipes too... gaaah and i hate forgetting stuff i meant to bring with me!

    2. The Glymm points so expire so that's probably why we all redeemed at around the same time!

    3. i was worried i would miss out on some points... someone posted on facebook that her points didn't add up (she was missing some) so i went and checked my entire history. thankfully, my points were all there!

  3. I'm glad you added GFC to your blog. Makes things easier for a lot of followers. I had you on Google Reader either way but I'm sure others appreciate being able to use this to follow you.

  4. Great little haul! I got the Villaness Duo as well. I think a lot of us did after smelling that cookie goodness of a body creme!
