Recent Buys - August

Here is a collection of my recent buys! I got the cropped sleeveless polo in a buy one get one free sale with sis; it was $4. A couple days ago, me, sis, and Ryan biked to saver's for a thrift trip and I found this little beauty! Little boys have the cuuuutest "vintage" clothes. I grabbed the batman baseball tee; it has a batman logo in the front and a 10 in the back w. batman graphics in it! I tried it on and the cut is perfect, but the fabric is a little heavy so i'm saving it for a cooler season. Lastly we went to Valley fair yesterday, where i finally picked up a fitted crop top! It's white with half sleeves. And I splurged on a $20 satchel from UO; it's fake leather accented with leoparded printed faux horse hair. I needed a new school bag anyways ^^

Aloe Fresh Gel Cream - The Face Shop

I've needed a light moisturizer for a while, and when I got a sample of the aloe fresh gel cream I was pretty relieved! It's gel instead of cream, so it's super light and refreshing; it comes out of the tube in a really watery gel substance. I've been using it for 3 days, gonna see what happens!

neato mosquito: five finger sponge

I know I've been blogging too much lately but this was just so interesting! It's a brush from StyleNanda that imitates fingers; maybe it'd be good for applying foundations? I'm new to this stuff so don't trust what I say

Also the margins are horribleeee

Beauty Wish List

Here's some stuff I want to try out because of the good reviews and moderate prices ($8-$13)

Boots Botanics Conditioning Clay Mask
This got a 4.4/5 rating from 97 people, with a 86% buy back rate on It'd be neat to try! Right now I have 2 masks though, so I'll try this when I'm running low.
Skinfood Red Orange Sun Pact spf 50++
The description of this says the powder is mattifying, oil controlling, and provides spf 50++; I'm not sure about how efficient a powder will be at blocking UV rays though.
Skinfood Red Orange Jelly BB spf 20++
This is the last thing I've been wanting to try! I'm currently running out of my Skin79, so I think this'll be the next BB I try. It's a gel formula instead of the usual oil based ones; hopefully it'll be lighter and clog my pores less. It also says it's moisturizing.

Fall: Ox Blood

For some reason, just knowing it's fall makes me want to change my wardrobe, even if I love the things currently in it! Ox Blood colored clothing is pretty high on that list right now..
