The Rest Of It

Y'all didn't think it was over right?

Just like last year, we took advantage of being able to see and touch things in person. So of course we hit up the usual suspects: Ulta, Target, Walgreens, Saks Fifth Avenue, CVS etc. Surprisingly we barely went into any Sephora's this toss. I'd already bought most things I wanted in VIB sale anyways.

Sidenote: if you're a shopaholic I encourage you to keep track of your purchases. Thankfully this blog helps me with that. If you're not a blogger you could utilize Instagram or go retro and just write everything down. Knowing when a product came into your collection gives perspective on when you should discard it (if you've even used it, that is).

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

The beauty industry is really ovadoing it with the releases cause they realise consumers are just lapping it up. We really need to take stock of what we have and be more mindful of what we're purchasing.

Personally I'm at a point where not much excites me and I truly need to cut my eye at the people tings 😁 That and Auntie Mia wanna put VAT on online purchases 👀I dunno how we gine survive bout hey! Of course I still wanna support the local M.A.C counters and attend Beauty Tradeshows so I gotta be realistic. A low buy suits me just fine.
