Collective Hair & Skincare Haul

**all items purchased by me (or received as requested samples)

I'm still working on cleaning out my "hauls" folder, so it's time for a collective hair and skincare haul.  These things were all purchased (or gotten as samples) over the months of June and July.

I got this way back in June, but I forget what store I found them at.  I better remember in the next few weeks, though... For some reason, I want to say at the grocery store...but I could be way off.  I'll have to keep my eyes open when I'm out and about.
St. Ives Exfoliating Pads

From North Coast Beauty Supply (also in June):
Soft Touch Grinder Foot File for about $3.50 - my hair stylist had recommended the OPI one, but I didn't want to spend that much on a foot file (for now)...can we say random conversations while I'm getting my hair done?
Straight Sexy Hair Deep Conditioning Masque for Thick/Coarse Hair.  On clearance for $5!  My other deep conditioner is running low, so this will take it's place.

From Walmart back in June:
Neutrogena Visibly Bright Daily Facial Cleanser

From Walmart a couple weeks ago:
Equate Beauty Regenerating Daily Cream Cleanser - Exfoliates & Detoxifies (compare to Olay Regenerist Regenerating Cream Cleanser)

From Dillards, almost 2 weeks ago I bought:
 Clinique Even Better Eyes Dark Circle Corrector - the jury's still out on if it's right for my under eye area

I got a few more samples last week on 2 different days from Macy's Mac counter and the Elizabeth Arden counter in Dillards:
top: MAC Volcanic Ash Exfoliator and Pro Longwear Concealer in NW20
(I also tried out the Studio Fix Powder Foundation in N4)
middle: MAC Mineralize Moisture Gel and Matte gel (had to ask the dermatologist first about the Mineralize Moisture Gel since it does contain a small amount of salicylic acid and I didn't want to cause extra sensitivity since I use benzoyl peroxide)
bottom: Elizabeth Arden Advanced Eye-Fix Primer and a tiny bit more of Visible Difference Peel & Reveal Revitalizing Mask

And finally, from TJ Maxx, I bought this:

Elizabeth Arden Peel & Reveal Revitalizing Treatment
~this is in old packaging and now known as Visible Difference Peel & Reveal Revitalizing Mask~
~packaging/name change happened earlier this year~
~$12.99 for this one versus $36 for the current (I don't know where TJ Maxx got the "compare at $26" amount from - maybe the old one was cheaper?)~
~I believe I found this just after going to Dillards and got super excited to find it~

Wow.  With all this skincare I should have gorgeous skin, right?  I wish - which is why I got it all.

See anything you've used before?  Any opinions?
