Good Buy or Goodbye?
Back in September I posted a Mini Drugstore Haul. I have had plenty of time to use the products, and I am ready to give a full review on them. I am going to use a simple “Good Buy” or “Goodbye” rating 😉
Here is what I bought in September:
- Maybelline SuperstayBetter Skin Foundation
- Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless foundation
- Maybelline Great Lash mascara
- Garnier Grapefruit Daily Facial Scrub
- Simple MicellarWater
- Aussie 3 Minute Miracle
- Suave lotion
As you may remember, I love the Maybelline SuperstayBetter Skin Foundation. During the summer I was a wearing the shade 20, but now that it is winter I need a lighter shade so I picked up 15, the next shade down. (I have actually even picked up the 10 shade. I am so pale!!!) One of my favorite things about it is that it lasts all day! I have written a full review on this foundation that you can read HERE. My opinion hasn’t changed, I still love this foundation! This Maybelline Better Skin Foundation is a Good Buy.
Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless foundation I had heard so many so many great things about the Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless foundation. I wanted to try it out for myself. I bought the shade 115. I really like it! I cannot believe how inexpensive this foundation is! I really wish it had a pump. If it came with a pump, I think I would actually like this foundation better than the Better Skin Super Stay. That being said, this is definitely a Good Buy!
The Maybelline Great Lasht mascara is basically like the most iconic of all mascaras. Surprisingly, as much as I love Maybelline mascaras I had never tried this one. Until I was talking about this mascara with my sister, I didn’t realize that they sell it with different brush size options! Personally, I like a bigger brush on my mascaras. Next time I will get it with the larger brush. I have to say, I think it definitely lives up to all the hype. This Maybelline Great Lash mascara is a Good Buy!
Garnier Clean + Balancing Daily Exfoliator for Combination Skin I recently wrote an entire post about this daily facial scrub. If you want to read it you can click HERE. I would repurchase the Garnier Clean + Balancing Daily Exfoliator for Combination Skin. I have enjoyed using it these last few weeks. I feel like it is just not the right choice for my skin at this time of year. I will try it again in the summer months and see if my skin reacts to it in a different way. The Garnier Clean + Balancing Daily Exfoliator for Combination Skin is a Good Buy.
Simple MicellarWater I had such high hopes for this! I have heard so many people talk about this Micellar water from Simple. It is just ok for me. It does not take waterproof makeup off well at all and forget about it if you wear waterproof mascara like I do. It isn’t a bad product, but it isn’t a miracle worker either. I have other similar products that i like better, for me this one is a Good Bye.
Aussie 3 Minute Miracle I LOVE this! It is awesome. I can’t quite place my finger on the scent to describe, but maybe a sweet citrus vanilla/orange creamsicle scent. I don’t know, I just really like it. It leaves my hair feeling super soft and healthy. I have already repurchased this two more times since I originally tried this one in September. In my opinion, Aussie 3 Minute Miracle is a very Good Buy!
As for the Suave lotion, I have been using it for years and know that it is something that I love and will repurchase over and over again. Not to heavy or greasy, not to overly scented. Comes in a huge bottle and lasts for a long time. Suave lotion is a Good Buy!
Have you used any of these drugstore products? What did you think? Good buys or goodbyes?
*I bought all of this with my own money. As always, all the opinions are all my own. 🙂
