Origins was giving out free full size cleansers on Earth Day if you brought in an empty bottle of skincare to recycle. I believe this offer happens every Earth Day so be sure to pick up your free cleanser next year! I have used this cleanser in the past many years ago when someone gifted it to me for Christmas. I did not pay very close attention to my skin at that time so I can't properly review this yet. I still have many cleansers to finish so it will be awhile before I do a post on this Origins Checks and Balances face wash.
I was walking down Soho and a friendly man was out in the rainy street with a friendly smile and a basket of soap samples. I have been curious about Sabon products and bar soaps so of course I had to snag myself a sample!
Although the bar looks extremely small, it lathers up amazingly well and I only have to use a bit for each shower. I have used it for three showers already and I have enough to last me another :) I always see people cutting their Lush soaps into gigantic slabs for a single use so I assumed luxury bar soaps were incredibly expensive for how many uses you were getting. But this experience has me interested in trying some more bar soaps! On another note, this soap leaves my skin squeaky clean; so squeaky that I don't feel much moisture. It's still quite nice and the scent is very sophisticated. It was not labeled so I do not know what scent I picked.
I am down to the last third of my Shiseido Perfect Oil (which will probably last me at least another month or two) so I wanted to get a backup of cleansing oil. I chose the Kose Softymo White Cleansing Oil. I did a quick trial run with some foundation, concealer, eyeshadow, and eyeliner on my arm and it took it off easily. The scent is citrus-y but I prefer the perfume scent of my Shiseido cleansing oil better. I might do a full review on this cleansing oil later when I start using it after I finish my current bottle.
I have been to a Walmart less than five times in my life because there are none close to where I live. When I went on a roadtrip last summer down the eastern coast, I was shocked at how many Walmarts and Super Walmarts I saw. My parents decided to go to Walmart the other day and I was so excited to go with them because I wanted to get my hands on some Hard
I heard a lot about the Equate face wipes which are basically the Walmart branded wipes. Equate is to Walmart as Up and Up is to
I also heard a lot of raves about Olay's cleansing cloths so I picked up the Equate version to see how I liked them. These wipes are dry cloths that need to be wet under the sink before use. They claim to be for normal to dry skin whereas I have combination oily skin. But I thought these would be super convenient for traveling and sleepovers so I got them as well. A box of these 60 wipes cost the same as the 120 wet wipes but both are inexpensive so no worries. I will review both of these wipes after I have tried them.

So now you have an idea of what some upcoming reviews will be on :) Stay tuned!
