Impulse Buys @ Watson's and NOTD

Hiya lovelies! Long time no see, right? Been super busy, but I missed reading all your blogs so much! I am so behind on tags and giveaways, haha!

Anyway, like I said, I've been so busy I haven't even had time to do any major shopping *sob* so I try to sneak in some vanity items every chance I get, like when doing normal grocery-shopping:

Got the following at Watson's:

Purederm Sheet Masks & Dual Wellness Pack:
On sale! More later.

Careline Oil Control Blush in Fresh Tomato

Good reviews from Blogger friends (like this one from Jing) have made me want to try Careline Blushes, and I found the name of this shade irresistible. It just made me think of healthy-looking babies.

iWhite Skin Whitening Vita Aqua Moisturizing Cream

I will once again profess my love for this product, but I can't believe they didn't have this in tubes at the Watson's I went to. What a joke.

Godiva Licowhite Lip Gloss, which I bought because of this review as well as the follow-up review

I bought other stuff, too but I didn't bother taking pictures of them since they're pretty ordinary bath products. For instance, I tried a new lotion: the new J&J one in Natural White. I'll let you know what I think once I finish a bottle. What I can say about it right now is that I love that it's light and non-greasy, and I love the way it smells.

I also bought a new thingy for cleansing my face. It's a small rubber pad with bumps for mild exfoliation and I don't know what it's called but it feels really good when I use it. I'll show it when I buy new ones because I don't feel right about showing you my used one. Ew! Haha!

Anyway, more on the Purederm masks: They're affordable and do a good job! And good news, they're on sale! Get them now at Watson's at an amazing price of 3 for PHP 99.00! The yogurt packs are at 3 for PHP 49.00. Unfortunately, the peeling gel/vitamin pack thingy is not on sale, but it's only PHP 29.75, anyway.

I've already used some of them but here some info on the variants left:

Brightening Essence

Pearl Essence (Whitening)

Firming Lift Coenzyme Q-10 Mask

This is my favorite of the lot. The smaller sheet is easier to place on my face without weird bunching and stuff. Also, I really did feel tightening when I used it I plan to buy more but hopefully, it will still be on sale when I get the chance to do so.

Dual-Wellness Pack

The Dual-Wellness Pack is a two-step thing. One part is a peeling gel that really removes dead skin cells to reveal fresh, glowing skin, and the other part is a vitamin pack to make sure that the newly revealed skin will be healthy.

That's it for now, but before I say goodbye, here are pics of my nails at present:

With Flash

w/o Flash

I used Bichun # 72. The second pic doesn't do it justice. It's the brightest, most unconventional shade I own. Loves it!

See you around! Don''t be a stranger, you hear?

    @ herroyalbleakness: lol, i consider them impulse buys because i still haven't worked out an actual system for my ka-kikayan. it's still trial and error for me when it comes to beauty prods. =)

    @ Kym: Watson's is great. I love their in-house stuff, too. But I'm sure you have far better alternatives there in Canada.

    @ AmyNaree: Watson's is okay, but it can't compare to the choices you have in the US. Haha. ^^
