As mentioned in my Sephora haul post (read here), I did a tiny haul at Mecca Cosmetica and Lush whilst I was with the girls in the city a couple of weeks ago. Yes, I'm FINALLY getting my tush into gear and writing about this. Also, I wasn't kidding when I said tiny haul. I have been quite broke after spending bucket loads of money on makeup and clothes I don't need over the past few months, and the husband was giving THE look after realizing how far behind I was at repaying for my purchases. So I didn't have much to spend and just picked up the bare essentials.
I mainly wanted the Kate Somerville Blemish Banish Kit from Mecca Cosmetica, as I've been getting a heap of pimples (which I think are mainly hormonal) plus leftover scars and pimples from the Foreo Luna Mini (read review here). I purchased it for $62 (retails for USD$55 at Sephora), and it comes with Detox Daily Cleanser (50ml), ExfoliKate Acne Clearing Exfoliating Treatment (15ml), EradiKate Acne Treatment (30ml), and Oil Free Moisturizer (15ml). I also got a sample of Kate Somerville Clearing Mask. I love how generous Mecca Cosmetica are with their samples. I have been using the Clearing Mask, and it's amazing at helping to dry out those pesky pimples that are disgustingly deep in the skin. I think I might have to go out and buy the full size when I finish my sample!
I really have to pat myself on the back for walking out of Mecca Cosmetica with only what I went in there for! I can't believe I didn't walk out with any makeup because their pricing is so comparable to the states!
