I received another code e-mail from e.l.f., and it occurred to me that I never reviewed the last few items from my haul. So I figure that I should start on that, beginning with the Kohl Eyeliner. This is another one of their $3 offerings that you can get here. As it is a kohl liner, it's meant to be smudgeable (and to assist this task has a smudger brush on one end). It also conveniently comes with a sharpener lid, which is a feature I've always enjoyed especially since this liner is a jumbo size and would not fit in a normal sharpener.

Sales are a wonderful thing, especially if you come across them by accident. I'm a huge fan of trolling sale areas of the store since you never know when you might find something good. Case in point: CVS. I found the Maybelline Color Show Fashion Paints Nail Stickers for $1.99 each! These normally retail for around $7.99, so these were a steal! There were 2-3 more designs available, but they didn't really speak to me so I left them behind. You should go to your local CVS and see if you can find these on sale. The next random item I found was Softsoap Moisturizing Body Wash at Walmart. These were thrown in with a bunch of other products like travel shampoo, deodorant, etc. in a big cardboard bin in the middle of one of the aisles. But more importantly, these were $0.94 each!!!! I mean these are good proportions for less than $1. Normally these body washes have 18 oz and run around $4. I was able to get close to half the amount for a fourth of the price. Total score. Added benefit, they smell nice. Of course I didn't really need body wash right now, but it doesn't go bad, I'll use it in the future, and most importantly the price was definitely right.

As with all relationship starts, first impressions are important. Getting introduced to new products is no exception. So when I got the Palmolive Fresh Infusions in the mail for review from Influenster I was in for a fun surprise. (Yes I got these for free to review, which I will do in a future post).
First, I really wasn't expecting 3 different scents to try out. Second, I didn't think Palmolive, or any brand, would bother creating unique/exotic scent options. Third, I didn't think it would actually smell nice. That said, the scents they have are Ginger White Tea (my personal favorite smell based on first whiff), Lemon Thyme, and Lime Basil. These are currently available at Walmart for little under $3, which I think is a great price for a 16 fluid ounce "high end" dish soap.
Look out for the review post that I will be posting once I give these a whirl.

So the New Year is off with a rush, and I have been amiss with adding new blogs. I promise to be better, as it is one of my New Year's resolutions. One of these days I'll conquer my laziness, and then next step the world. That said, I figured I would share this gem of a Zoya sale. Zoya is what can be considered a mid-range nail polish that can be bought online and at Ulta, akin to the level of Essie, China Glaze, and OPI. The nail polishes usually run around $8, so getting 3 for the price of shipping and handling (about $10) is a steal. Zoya is a 3 free formula, and they have a huge selection of colors to choose from. The actual nail polishes have girl names. You can maybe find one that's named after you. And yes, I do have one named after me and I own it, but only because I like the color (mostly).
