Moisture Mania

Based on a friend's rave review, I went to Walgreens to buy the Merlot™ Grape Seed Moisturizer and Moonlight Radiance Night Cream. Yay for antioxidants and very affordable prices ($14.99 for the moisturizer, $20 for the night cream, both are 4 oz jars).

Then I made the mistake of stopping by Target where I picked up a few products I've been eying from Soap & Glory (cosmetics line created by Marcia Kilgore of Bliss Spas, previously only available in the UK). I'm a sucka for cute packaging and I love the retro pink and black theme, along with the clever names.

I bought the Clean On Me body wash, Flake Away body scrub, The Righteous Butter body butter, Sugar Crush body scrub, and Sexy Mother Pucker™ clear lip gloss. I actually really want to get nearly all of the Sexy Mother Pucker™ shades (there's a gift set with 3 glosses, a peach, and a nude) but I figured I'd try one first to see how I like it. A great way to try the body scrub + body butter + shower gel is to get the mini gift set for just $9.99.

I also picked up Rimmel Glam'Eyes mascara and Rimmel Lycra® Lash Extender. I'm curious to see if these drug store products will replace my current Lancome Definicils and Lancome Virtuose mascaras.

I'm excited to try out all of these products, to see if I'll love them, and how they stand up against my current favorites, especially since all of these are drugstore finds so they might potentially give more for your money! And with the economy these days...that's definitely a good thing, if not an absolute MUST.

P.S. I really do constantly crave change...aside from my Hempz products, I also use True Blue® Spa products from Bath & Body Works, including the Mega Butter™ Super Softening Body Butter with Four Natural Butters , I'm in the Mood for Scrub™ Foaming Body Buff With Shea Butter Beads, Tahiti, Sweetie™ Body Lotion with Monoi Oil, and Look Ma, New Hands!™ Softening Hand Lotion with Paraffin...

Still, they are pricier and in smaller sizes than their Soap & Glory counterparts, and while they smell delicious (Mega Butter smells like cake! mmm...but the scrub has a "natural" smell which makes me think of laundry detergent), they also smell very summery to me. So I'm definitely welcoming a change.
