Hey hey, it’ MJ,
This post was supposed to be like a week and a half ago but my box shipped on the 7th and then there was nothing until like the 23rd I think. So, I thought for a while there I was just going to have to email, for the second time this year, and tell them it was lost.
I get it, this is the worst time of the year for shipping, it’s painful. I know I ordered something in August expecting it in October but they were waiting on something for the box and it’s shipping at some point this week. Woo.
Let’s just roll right into it because I don’t really have much else to say.
I love the blush pink with the gold stars and accents, the gold drawstring is also really cool. This is for sure one of my favorite GB+ bags this year and I cannot wait to find a reason to use it. I will, y’all mark my words.
I actually took pictures of my choices; I don’t think I am going to post them but they feel really limited. I know it’s “ultra-personalization” but I wish they would send out a survey or something because I have some things that I would like to say and it’s very clear that none of them read my blog. All I’m really getting is skin care products and if that keeps up, I am going to cancel, it’s that simple. I can find another box that I want or I can save money too, it’s just becoming annoying. I love skin care and I can get some really good skincare cheap through IPSY, but I miss the variety of the boxes.
Clarity RX Daily Dose Water Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Serum:
I am drowning in serums, I am going to give a few to my mom because I love serum, but I have a lot of them and I need to get rid of some of them. Like this is expensive, super expensive actually so here we are. This is the season for a hydrating serum because it’s dry outside and cold, so I am looking forward to trying it out.
Kate Somerville Exfolikate Glow Moisturizer:
I love Kate Somerville; her moisturizer was some of my favorite this year. It’s so good and I am really looking forward to actually using this one. All of her products smell good, I cannot describe them, they just smell really good and they make my skin feel amazing.
Treslúce Beauty Intenso Liner Duo in Fuerte + Honest:
That’s right, I chose liners, I don’t really wear liner, but with a more pencil feel maybe I’ll get back into liners. Also, one is black and the other is a bronze and I really want to give them a try. Look at me branching back out into makeup, look at me. Maybe 2022 will be the year I bring back liner in my routine.
111Skin Vitamin C Brightening Booster Serum:
I know there are two serums in this bag and I was complaining about serums, but 111Skin is amazing and I love it so much. It’s just one of those brands that you cannot pass up if given the chance. Their products are so good and I am using one of them right now and it’s doing some great things to my skin because I was using another moisturizer and it was drying my entire face out so much that I was peeling. So, I needed a refresh and 111Skin came to my rescue.
Neogen Dermatology A-Clear Soothing Foam Cleanser:
I love Neogen, I got a sample size of their products last year or earlier this year and it was such a good little cleanser, so I am really excited to give this one a try because I am running out of cleanser. I like that the product is dermatologist tested which usually means that my skin doesn’t react to it and that is so exciting. It has a bunch of good cleansing agents in it so I am going to look forward to getting a chance soon to use this one.
Well, that’s my bag, very skin care heavy because that felt like all of the options I had, and that’s probably because I rate skin care well, because that’s all I get. It’s becoming a vicious cycle and it’s starting to get annoying.
I will be back later in the week with my last book post of the year, if you are into that it’s going to be a long one. So, until then I hope everyone has an amazing end to 2021 and I will see y’all in 2022, I hope that you stay safe, happy, and healthy.
