I GOT RID OF 90% OF MY BEAUTY PRODUCTS, AND HERE’S WHY

I wish I would have taken a before and after picture.

Last week I got the urge to purge. Maybe the start of Spring put me in the mood to start Spring cleaning – if you know me well, you know cleaning really makes me happy – but last week I was ready to get rid of almost everything. My skin care drawer was a mess, I was looking through all of my makeup thinking, why do I have so much stuff. I try to be mindful when it comes to excess. There are certain things I really love, like shoes and skincare products and will always buy, but if it’s something I haven’t used or worn in a while, I try to give it away or toss it.

QUICK PICKUPS: WHOLE FOODS BEAUTY

The other day I went to Whole Foods for one thing (Alkaline water) and found myself down their beauty aisle. I may be a little late to the game but, I didn’t know that Whole Foods had such a large selection of hair care, body care, skin care and perfume products. When I initially when in for water, I ended up down the beauty aisle picking up only one other thing, the 365 Everyday Value Nourishing Grapeseed Oil.

Grapeseed oil is a staple in both my body and skin care routine. A few years back I gave up using lotion completely (I plan to do a dedicated post on this) and for a while I was using Almond Oil until I read about Grapeseed Oil being a lighter yet more moisturizing oil.

It’s been a while since I have posted here, but I’m back! I’ve been on a bit of a spending fast (which went pretty terribly) so I was trying my hardest not to purchase much in the month of September. I recently went to one of my favorite stores (Sephora), to pick up some things and I also recently got some orders in from Amazon. Perfect timing for a post!

I know you see the Fenty Beauty products front and center so lets start there! Because I hate going into stores when they are super packed, I waited until the week after the Fenty Beauty launch to stop in Sephora and pick up somethings that I saw in the 100+ tutorials I watched beforehand. Just my luck however, the darker shades were sold out at two locations but I was still able to get IQ matched so when the foundation is restocked, I will be able to purchase. I did get a sample and let me tell you… best foundation I have EVER used… EVER! I will talk more about it when I am able to purchase it and wear it more often, but all I can say is it really does look like skin.
