L'Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream promises to hydrate, correct, even and perfect your skin. It also said that it primes to smooth skin's texture. It comes in 4 shades. I got the Light one. This BB cream has antioxidants Vitamin C and E.

At first I thought the bb cream got expired or something because I wasn't expecting what looks like white
lotion to come out. All the bb creams I have used are color beige. So this was really a surprise.


Turns out, this BB cream has a special "Beautifying Beads" in it. Those are encapsulated pigments infused in the ultra-light lotion. It's kind of cool because when I start spreading it, it suddenly became brownish.

The bb cream is ultra-light. It's watery and runny, just how I like it to be.

As much as possible, I try to wash my makeup brushes once a week.

My sisters hate me because I get mad when they try to use any of my brushes, because of that, they irritate me by doing it intentionally.

I used the Sephora Makeup Brush Shampoo before, (you can read about my post here). I used a lot of it to wash my brushes weekly so it ran out pretty fast. I didn't repurchase anymore, I just used whatever's available around the house to clean my brushes.

Shower gels are only $4 each. I think their clearing out their old stocks of shower gel for their new shower gel formula. The new formula is makes your skim softer because they added more shea butter and aloe.

I really like the Forever Sunshine scent, so I stocked up on that since they are phasing it out. I also picked up the Forever Sunshine body mist.

I got 2 small candles of the same scent. Of all the on-sale candles, I only liked the Passion Flower scent. I'n not very fond of tropical or exotic scents like coconut. I also hate the smell of grass.

I really fall for BBW's promos. What only started out as 2 lotions and a body mist made me purchase all of that. Almost everyday, they got a something different on sale, so it made me keep on going back for more. And after I bought all of these, they emailed a "$10 off a $30 purchase" coupon. The coupon is really tempting me to buy more...
