Confession of a Potion Addict  

Posted by: Foxy Frangipani in , , ,

It took me months before I give in and admit this: - I'M A SUCKER FOR LOTIONS AND POTIONS..

As usual, weekends are damaging to my purse. I came back with $380 worth of Estee Lauder and Clinique products *grins* I'm euphoric.. The highs of getting more new creams, serums - even after-shopping guilt don't come close.

I should be alarmed you know (bloody hell yeh). Should have seen my cosmetics collections. To start of with, I already spent a huge chunk on Dermalogica last December. But heck, I've gotta give Dermalogica some credits - they LAST!

8 months down the road, I still have about half a bottle of the cleanser left (and for the record, I gave 100ml to mom to let her try). And yes, I wash my face at least twice a day :P My fave - "Special Cleansing Gel" and "Essential Cleansing Solution".

Just last month the salesgirl from the salon was bugging hell outta me asking me to replenish. Crazy... why replenish when I still have loads to last me probably months down the road? She just don't understand human language and was being very pushy, at the same time trying to educate me on how to wash my face... to the point I almost wanna insult her skin condition.

The toner is pretty alright (I never really understand why we need them, just water to me, hehe). "Skin Smoothing Cream" is not oily (it just oil away my $$$). It does leave my skin well moisturized, well till the time I leave work and get into my car... the heat - I hate the hot blazing sun!

Not going back for the mask though. "Skin Hydrating Mask" is dehydrating. The facialists want me to slather on a thick layer for max 3 minutes in order to get the max effect, else it dries you up. Honestly, I'm freakin not gonna use a timer to time exactly 3 mins or get moisture sucked outta my skin. Yeah I fibbed a few times saying I actually use it every two days.. in fact, I switched to Skin Food's "Creamy Cheese Mask" and a whole list of other face packs (you'll faint when I list them down, I'm sure of it)

And during my recent facial session, the facialist actually said - "Hmm your skin is well hydrated, enough moisture". I was thinking " yeah go on thinking its the Skin Hydrating Mask that did this wonder.."

So I'm almost running out of my day moisturiser, hands were itching to get something new. Good lord, couple of weeks ago my knees went weak for Benefit Cosmetics (yes yes yes I bought some), now I've got my hands on some Estee Lauders.

The red packaging for their Nutritious range is so damn enticing. Got myself these:
- Nutritious Vita Mineral Moisture Mik
- Nutritious Restorative Night Creme

And these minis are the gifts:
- Restorative Night Creme
- UV Protector SPF50/PA++
- Vita Mineral Moisture Gel Creme
- Vita Mineral Radiance Essense
- Vita Mineral Energy Lotion

Extra gift: Purifying 2-in-1 Foam Cleanser.

Smells so yummy I wanna use them right away. But old faithfuls could still last about 1-2 weeks? Darn... I really really wanna use new stash!! :S

Oh, this spoilt girl also bought:
- Clinique Pore Minimizer Refining Serum
- Clinique Pore Minimizer Instant Perfector
- Clinique Moisture Surge Extra Thirsty Skin Relief

Nooo... I'm not that spoilt.. its the minikit that comes in a pouch ok. I just wanna see if those products really work. :P Oh boy, I need to go sort out my stash now... And boss? I need a raise.. *more grins*
