I know, I know, I've been M.I.A. again, I'm sorry, but to be honest... I just sometimes don't know what to blog about. Nowadays, I rarely buy anything that's really worth talking about, I guess I've been in this lazy, plain jane mood for a while. But recently I did purchase a couple things I thought you girls would want to know about. One is the Sephora Ultimate Dual Exfoliating Brush and the other an Ulta Exclusive Bare Minerals Kit and I've been absolutely loving both.
As I previously mentioned, I've been in a plain Jane mood, so I've been trying to focus more on improving my skin rather than just mask it with liquid and cream foundations and concealer so I decided to start focusing just a tad bit more on my skin care. So about a month ago, I decided to purchase the Sephora Dual Exfoliating Brush because I thought it would help my dry, at times, flaky skin, and I must say it has.

Overall, I really like this brush, in less than a month, I've seen great improvements in the texture and look of my skin. From what I've noticed, it removes almost all of my makeup, it leaves my skin feeling super smooth, and I even see an improvement in my post acne dark spots. Not to mention that I haven't had any major breakouts since I've been using this, and I use to get at least a pimple a week. For a fraction of the price of a Clarasonic, at a reasonable $18 at Sephora, I think this is a steal and I definitely recommend it.
The next set of products, I've been using for the last two weeks, and I have to say that I also feel this has helped with the improvement of my skin. I had been wanting to try Bare Minerals for the longest and when I saw this kit at Ulta for $38, I was all over it. The Kit includes the Original Foundation, a Mineral Veil, a mascara, a lip gloss, a Prime Time sample, and a brush.

So I really hope you enjoyed and found my mini haul/review on these products helpful. I really love them and truly believe they have contributed to the improvements I see in my skin. I'll do an updated skin care/foundation routine soon. Like I've mentioned in many reviews and hauls before, I'm not saying this is absolutely going to work for you as it has for me, we're all different and our skin types may react differently to each product, but personally, for me, these products have helped me a lot, and if you do decide to try them, I really hope they work just as good for you.
