a mini skincare haul + my favorites of the month!

#Disclaimer: This post includes a collaboration. You’ll have a chance to purchase a product through the link with a special 15% discount. 🙂
Hey guys! Hope you’re alright! Hope everything is okay.

I wanted to share the little skincare haul that I’ve recently done. It was an online purchase so I was a bit hesitant to buy something that I didn’t try in store. But I think this is our new normal, so I have to get used to this 😅
Well anyway, I’ve recently made a huge decision to be mindful of what I use in my skincare as well as for my makeup products. I started buying stuff that I would need. 
I’ve bought a few products from The Body Shop. I got Aloe Vera calm mask( if you have sensitive skin like me, don’t hesitate to buy it!) tea tree oil( since maskne is real, hello!), and Hemp Body Butter! ( this one saves lives trust me if you have sensitive and hands that become easily cracked!) I also had a chance to try CeraVe’s Moisturizing Cream!* My hands get very dry during the cold months and this was a miracle-worker! Definitely a suggestion! 🙂 
I also got two other things. One of them is Peace out Spots acne band-aids. I was very excited about this one, but it’s not a miracle worker. So don’t set your expectations too high on this one. It just helps with the inflammation, but not too much. So, if you are planning to buy this I think you’d find much better and useful options out there. It was a money waste :((( 
The other one is Sephora’s Charcoal Blackhead Mask. This one doesn’t work wonders too don’t wait for great results! 
For my favorites; Benefit’s Roller Lash Mascara! OH EM GEE! This is worth every penny. 
For other things, I have been loving…
