Products I'm Plowing Through (Mostly Skincare)

It's not often that I finish products but I sometimes take a quick pic of things I'm about to throw out so I can remind myself what items I actually use the most LOL.I think what gets finished the fastest is without a doubt cleansing waters. I think thorough cleansing is super important and when using liquid removers you should try to soak your cotton pads to maximize breakdown of makeup and minimize rubbing. So I don't skimp on cleansing waters because I use these to remove my eye makeup.

New hauls!l + La Mer 2017 releases

Woot my SUNUV nail lamp just arrived in the post. This is an LED nail lamp for curing gel polish and acrylic nails.Btw if you're considering an at-home system, UV lamps are potentially bad for your skin, need bulb replacement every 100 uses, and eat too much power overall, so they're kinda obsolete. LEDs also take 1/2 the time to cure nails compared to UV lamps so do not buy UV lamps.LED lamps are also cheap now. I got this on Aliexpress for US$20.99. Cheaper than a session at most salons.
