Haul | Back to School Skincare

Hello ♥ Continuing on from my post on my back to school clothing, I also picked up some skincare items because I have really not bought anything skincare wise for a few months. I picked up essentials and some other things I would like to try out.

 Clean & Clear Essentials Deep Cleaning Toner | Walmart | $3.74 | LINK
A lot of people talk about or use this toner. I bought because of all the people who talk about it (jumping on the band wagon) and how it is for sensitive skin people like moi . I bought it because it is simply a toner. 

Equate Beauty Blemish Control Apricot Scrub | Walmart | $3.00*
This is just a knock-off of the St.Ives Apricot Scrub. I bought this one because they did not have the St.Ives one (marketing strategy). I really tired of going downstairs and mixing up the olive oil-honey scrub since I did not have a scrub. I just decided to buy this.

* I think

 Neutrogena Body Clear Scrub | Walmart | $5.87 | LINK
I used this product before, but I didn't really like it that much. I will have to try it again though.

Secret Deodorant | Walmart | $3.77 
I used this deodorant before, but the only thing stopping me from using it was the $4.00+ price. I really like it and since it went down in price, I had to buy it.

Nair Hair Removal Lotion with Baby Oil | $4.97 | LINK
I like using nair because it lasts longer than normal shaving, but it is a real hassle. The smell is terrible and it makes me want to wear nose plugs. Hopefully, this one will be less appalling. It works in softening the hair and is more forgiving than shaving (if you can handle it).

Rosebud Salve | Sephora | $6.00 | LINK
My firend had this lip balm and I always took it and used it religiously. I used it on everything it said it could be used for: lips, face, cuticles, elbows, and etc. It was a really nice feeling and it seemed to work well. 

OLE HENRIKSEN Truth Serum® Vitamin C Collagen Booster and Truth Creme Advanced Hydration Sample Pack | Sephora | $22.00 
I went to Sephora, just for fun, but then I remembered my mom and sister telling that my skin was splotchy, dark, and uneven. I then gravitated towards to the sales lady and ask her for skin brightening serums. She suggested anything with vitamin C will help with skin brightening. I was going to ask for a sample either way because it gets pretty expensive at Sephora. She gave me a sample and recommended this little kit. I bought it even though she gave me a sample. They don't have this sample kits in store. If you would like it, just ask:

" Do you have the blah blah Serum and Blah Hydration, the naked truth sample kit?"

Thanks you for reading! Stay tuned for my next post on my school supplies. Please follow my social media links below and my bloglovin'/GFC/Google Plus. If you have any post recommendations, please leave a comment below.

What are your favorite skincare items?


  1. Great haul post! I certainly bought alot of stuff this summer :3 If you have time, I'd love to see a review on the Neutrogena Clear Pore mask! It's lovely when masks on the drugstore level actually do what they claim to do.

  2. Thanks for the request:) I will definitely do it! Have a great day Amanda<3

  3. That's a wonderful haul, you make me miss schooool.... Anyway, I use the Clean & Clear toner too, but I found it a little drying for my combination skin. Let me know if it dries your skin out too my dear ^_^

  4. Yes it does a little, but not as much as my Formula 10.0.06 pore cleanser! My moisturizer helps with this. Thanks for the comment, Celly <3
