First stop was back at the Body Shop. I was there the previous weekend where I picked up the rest of their tea tree oil line (for acne prone skin). On my receipt, there was a little coupon for spend $40 and save $15, which was stackable with their buy 3, get 2 free and also with their membership card (save 10%). I went home and found my receipt from my previous mini haul and I had a coupon on there too! As I walked in, I spotted another great deal - all of their body butters were on sale for $10 (all except their largest size). I LOVE their body butters. They are pretty much the only moisturizer that works on my skin. Then I went around picking up stuff from their Seaweed line (which I believe is for sensitive skin?). I picked up the pore perfecter, day cream, clay mask and toner. I picked up the exfoliator from the tea tree oil line because I didn't pick it up last time. Since I had the discount card, I actually had to spent $44 in order to be able to use the coupon, so I picked up the Lychee perfume. I really like it. It's nice and light. Fruity with a cherry blossom undertone. I totally made out like a bandit there. One thing that was funny though and what I thought was a little strange was that the woman checking out before me probably purchased about $15 worth of stuff and got something like a dozen samples. I purchased like $60 (this is after all discounts) worth of stuff and I got two. One of them being the super stinky and gross chocomania lotion. I apologize if you like it, but this is just not a smell that is for me. I know that I should be grateful that they even gave me samples, but it makes me a little undervalued as a customer when I see that kind of uneven treatment.
Second and Third stop - Walmart and Shopper's Drug Mart. Actually, I made like two or three stops there. I have one that is super close to my work and then one that is super close to my home. LOL. Here's a funny story. I have a MAC blotting powder at work that I use in conjunction with my blotting papers. I had dropped about 6 inches and one part of it cracked (like a teeny, tiny "corner"). I didn't think anything of it. Then, they other day when i went to use it, it was really crumbling. So I turned it upside down over my garbage and tapped. The whole pan dropped into my garbage. *sigh* BUT...one good thing to take out of this story is that I maintain that it counts as hitting pan!!!! Anyways, I didn't want to go out and buy another one, lest this happens again, so my girlfriend recommended that I try the Physician's Formula powder. It just so happened that Walmart had this two-pack deal going on. You purchase the powder and you get the blush for free. I purchased that and the light bronzer. The blushes are different in each pack. It truly was a good deal because the two pack was approximately $19.00, but if you were to buy the items individually, it's $20 each. I also wanted to try the Mineral wear airbrush powder, so I picked one up. And the rest is self explanatory.
Fourth - Nailpolishcanada. This is an online store that is based out of Richmond, BC. The shipping was super fast and it's free shipping over orders of $29 or more. I ordered an Orly Love Mini Kit (pinks and red), an Orly mini glitter polish, Essie Luxeffects glitter, Essie Matte top coat, and receive two free Deborah Lippman nail care samples. I have a lot of pinks and reds, so I don't know why I decided to pick up the Orly Love Mini Kit, but it was my intent to pick up the Essie Matte top coat. I had seen this black matte base with shiny black tips manicure on a blog and decided that this was what I was going to try. Man, it was hard!!!! The matte top coat is weird. I think that it thins out the polish or something like that.
