Priceline Skin Care Sale Haul ft. The Face Shop

My little skin care haul, it's not actually that little seeing as it damaged my bank account more than I care to admit. But I thought, this is probably worth blogging about seeing as it seems like I bought a thousand things. This is a little combined haul because the Priceline Skin Care sale was on the 27th and 28th of Jan but I also went to The Face Shop (for those of you who don't know what that is, The Face Shop is a Asian beauty store).

I only got two things at The Face Shop so I'll start there. The two things I got were a Blackhead Out white clay nose pack and a Pore Tightening cooling mist.

I got the Blackhead Out white clay nose pack because I saw Shaaanxo use it in one of her 'daily' vlogs and thought it would a cool alternative to the Biore nose strips. I haven't been able to use it yet as my skin is still peeling from that sunburn but I have high hopes for this product. It was $11 at The Face Shop and you get 50g of product. I also have to say that the packaging is really nice, the pale blue was a good choice and there's a fair amount of english on the container considering this is an Asian product.

The other thing I got, the Pore Tightening cooling mist I got because I needed something to tighten my pores after ripping the blackheads out. I never had anything when I used my pore strips, the best I could do was put some cold water on the area and hope for the best. I'm fairly certain that Lush might have a pore tightening face mask but I just never got around to getting it. It's really bad to use pore strips because it makes your pores bigger and they collect more dirt, so I'm hoping this is really effective. This was $27 for 150g of product. It is an aerosol can but I'm really excited to try it. Again the packaging is really nice, the pastel teal was a great choice and just looks nice on the vanity.

The Priceline I went to was the Hurstville shopping centre one and it was savage. The amount of people all trying to get what they wanted was ridiculous. However I did get almost everything I wanted except for one or two things.

Neutrogena Deep Clean Revitalising Pink Grapefruit Foam Cleanser - This appealed to me because lately I've been loving grapefruit on my skin. I know it makes a great exfoliator because of the acid but I wanted more for different things like cleansers. The packaging is super cute and Neutrogena have had some pretty good skin care stuff before.

Neutrogena Deep Clean Revitalising Pink Grapefruit Daily Scrub - Same thing as above, basically it screamed grapefruit at me and I thought it would be good to get the duo, one to match the other.

People for Plants Aloe, Grapefruit, Garnet Face Scrub - I actually went to a second Priceline for this, unplanned I just happened to pass another Priceline and they had it in stock. Again grapefruit stuck out to me but aloe also sounded really nice because of my recent sunburn. I haven't tried the brand before and thought this would be a good start.

Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel - This stood out in particular because I had a reaction (don't know if it was an allergic one) and my eyes swelled up to the max. I needed something to fix it but didn't have anything. I'm fine now and it only lasted about three days but it got me thinking, my mother suggested that cucumbers might help with the swelling. So I found this on the Priceline website, I picked it up because I thought it would help if it happened again.

Bliss No 'Zit' Sherlock Spot Treatment - Let's be real here, I picked this up because of the name. I also have a lot of pimples/zits (being a teenager does that). Some other things influneced me to pick it up, it said that it could help absorb excess oil and I, myself personally had never tried the brand Bliss, I have given something else by them as a present.

Milk and Co Ultra Light Face Moisturiser - I picked this up on a whim, though I did want to pick something up from this line because I love Milk and Co. I got the moisturiser because it appealed to me the most from the stock they had. I did get excited when I saw that it said vitamin e, aloe vera and jojoba oil on the box.

Clearasil Daily Clear Superfruits Refreshing Toner - I got the wash version in this in my Bellabox and my god I needed the rest of this collection. The wash is amazing and well why not get the rest of the Superfruits stuff?

Clearasil Daily Clear Superfruits Refreshing Scrub - Read above haha.

Biore Charcoal Pore Minimiser - I've wanted this since I saw it on Biore's instagram page. I didn't think it would be an exfoliator and more of a mask thing but oh well, I'm sure I'll enjoy it just as much. I love all the pore products from Biore and think they work really well so I'm hoping this will be a great product.

Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips - I got the 14 combo pack which includes 7 nose strips and 7 forehead strips. I haven't tried the face strips so that should be fun. I really wanted to get the charcoal strips but at both Pricelines they didn't have any.

Skin Doctors No More Oil T-Zone Cream, I originally was going to get the Skin Doctors T-Zone No More Bores Night Treatment but I thought this one was better suited to me. I wanted something that was going to help with my oily t-zone so I picked this up. I've never tried the brand or heard of them, so this should be interesting.

Montagne Jeunesse Green Tea Peel Off Masque - My god I love this stuff. I'm fairly certain I've talked about this on instagram before because it's magical. I'll actually be talking about this in an upcoming skincare post so keep an eye out for that. I just wanted to restock on this basically.

St Ives Facial Blemish Control Scrub - Another thing I wanted to restock up on. A lot of people have mixed feelings about this. I love this, one of the best scrubs I've had but I've always had the small one, this is my first full sized one.

Manuka Doctor Peel Off Mask - The most expensive thing I got but easily the best thing. I was worried that it would be sold out, they don't have it on the website and since Shaaanxo talked about it on her vlog it's been in high demand. This was just a restock up.

The last thing I got was the Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes, the Night Calming ones. This wasn't on my list initially but seeing as it's how I remove my makeup I thought I should get some backups while it's cheap.

Some things that were on my list but they were out of stock on - Milk and Co Face Cleanser and the Biore Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips.

I've also included a photo of some other stuff I got today like makeup stuff, so if you guys would like to see any reviews on it just let me know in the comments down below! :)
