I was looking through my computer file folders and found one that actually should have been included with my last haul post. I hate it when that happens. So even though it should have been included in the collective haul, it gets its own post. Maybe I subconsciously neglected it because I had to do research to get the names of the colors first. Who knows? Anyway...
I went to TJ Maxx just to look around since I hadn't been for a while. And I found a couple of things. Sometimes I can walk out empty handed, but this wasn't one of those days. So what did I find? Let's have a look at the 2 things.
First I got this face masque. I'm still trying to find a cheaper alternative to the Origins one I sampled so I thought I would get this one since it has a couple of different types of clays in it.
Giovanni Eco Chic Skin Care D:tox System Purifying Facial Mask
with Activated Charcoal, Volcanic Ash and Super-Antioxidants Acai and Goji Berry
I've used this once already, and it is definitely not super similar to the Origins. It dries down tight like it should tighten pores and suck the crap out (ew), but I don't feel like it did it did that well of a job; and I don't feel like it helped bring emerging acne up to the surface either. The "activated charcoal" part of the title is actually a little way down the ingredient list, so that could be why it didn't have as good of a result as I was hoping. It does leave a bit of a tingly feeling that hangs around even after it's been washed off for a while - I'm assuming I'm feeling all those "super-antioxidants" working. Maybe I'll like this better after I use it more - it does say 2-3 times a week. Maybe I should stop comparing everything to the Origins sample and evaluate each thing I use for what it claims...
And my other item is what I'll blame for subconsciously not seeing this folder before posting my collective haul since I needed to do some research:
Color Club In True Fashion (Fall 2012) collection mini polishes
By Design, Style Icon, In the Limelight and Muse-ical
~~I hope I got those names right! The worst part about buying sets from TJ Maxx is they rarely have names on the bottles~~
~~the bottom picture is more color accurate; I had a heck of a time getting a decent picture~~
Do you try to look up shade names of polishes when you get them and they aren't labeled? What's your favorite "detoxifying" facial mask?
