Mini Beauty Haul & Review

I love using Target’s cartwheel & circle app when I’m shopping at Target, as I’m always able to save a little bit of money, or even earn gift cards for my next trip.


Right now Target has a coupon on their app that if you send $20 or more in beauty or personal care, you get a $5 gift card. So I grabbed some of my essentials that I had recently ran out of, plus some fun goodies to test out — as I can never test out too many beauty products. Also, I purchased these in two separate transactions, so I could get two $5 gift cards.

  • Crest 3D White Toothpaste — I’ve been repurchasing this toothpaste for a number of years now, and I’m fan. Not too minty, and gets the job done. What else can I say?

  • NATIVE Deodorant in Citrus & Herbal Musk — I quickly became a huge fan of this deodorant after trying it out for the first time this past December. I love how long lasting the scent is, even after a long shift at work. FYI if you want this scent, you will most possibly find it in the men’s section, and not the women’s.

  • Simple Moisturizing Facial Wash — I don’t have a full review for this product yet, as I just tried it out for the first time the other night. Bonus points: it doesn’t sting my eyes when I use it to remove my eye makeup, so that is a good thing.

  • Simple Cleansing Wipes — I have been using these makeup remover wipes for years. They don’t breakout my face, irritate my eyes, and do a fairly good job at removing my makeup when I’m having a lazy night.

  • CoverGirl Exhibitionist Mascara — My number one favorite mascara is Too Faced’s BTS. So of course, I’m always on the lookout for a cheaper dupe, that is just as good. I think this might just be the one to win the mascara battle. Which is awesome, since I don’t always want to spend $23 on a tube of mascara.

  • Pixi by Petra Correction Concentrate Brightening Peach — I tend to have dark under circles, so I like to wear a high coverage concealer almost everyday. To get away with wearing a lighter coverage  concealer, I have been on the lookout for a good corrector concealer/product, to wear underneath my concealer or BB cream on my lighter makeup days. I think I found a winner with this product, plus it is only $12! Yes, please.  

  • L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Shake and Glow Dew Mist — I have been loving a more glowy makeup look this year. So I have been all about the highlighter, primers with glow benefits, glowy foundations, and making my skin look as healthy as it can [which helps with the glow look]. I’ve only worn this spray once, but I think I might be a fan. I will know more once warmer weather hits, so I can see how it effects my makeup during the summer heat.
