A Little Haul! (Wal-Mart, Winners & Superstore)

Today I stepped out with my mom, and we decided to pay a visit to Wal-Mart and Winners. I really wanted to go to Winners in hopes of finding some good cosmetic bargains! I was reading Provincial Beauty's July favorites, and she mentioned that she found Korres Lip butters at Winners for only $6.99 (3 pack)!! I have read numerous blog posts on these guys and they seem to be a great lip product..I want them sooo bad! So of course I went hunting at my local winners but I didn't have the greatest luck finding them. Although I wasn't able to find the butters I did get my hands on a couple other things that I'm really excited about.
So for beauty wise at Winners I was able to find...

Burt's Bee Set- I have always heard great things about this brand but never have I tried a single item. This set came with a nourishing lip balm, and a lemon cuticle cream. I have been dealing with severe chapped lips, so I hope this helps! The lip balm is made with mango butter and it smells delicious, the cuticle cream also has a great scent. I have stopped biting my nails (hooray!) so I'm trying hard to take care of my hands..I rubbed this on some of the dry points on my hand and it was great at moisturizing. The consistency is a thick wax which I really like, it's very hydrating and it did not my hands/ cuticles greasy. This duo was $3.99, I think it's a good price considering that the lip chap alone was $4.27 at Wal-mart.


Raspberry Tart Nourishing Body Butter by Cake- I just could not believe the price of this, it was too good to pass up. This body butter was marked down to $4.. This is a HUGE tub, and I think it was a steal of a deal. Cake has the most divine beauty items, everything smells soooo yummy, you may as well just eat it! Their products are made with a high quality of natural ingredients, and are all paraban free. Also at winners I saw Cake's satin sugar dry shampoo, lemon soap, and mango body scrub!! I want to go back for the soap and scrub;)
at Wal-mart I got...

Cetaphil Cleanser for Oily skin- I got this because I ran out of a cleanser... I was alternating between the Herbalism sample I got, and my Clinique foaming soap but both have finished so I was just using a random bar of dove soap to wash my face. I've heard a lot about Cetaphil cleansers through Youtube so I decided to give it a go, plus I had a 2$ coupon for it. This cleanser says it's a great formula for combination to acne prone skin. It's said to remove dirt, makeup, and surface oils without leaving skin dry.
..From Wal-Mart I also got two clothing items, from time to time I find some really nice stuff there! Here's what I purchased today
A pair of dark skinny jeans ($10) and a graphic tee ($6)

After leaving Wal-Mart, I quickly ran into Superstore and darted into the cosmetic section, I've read online that some Canadian superstores have stocked up on the new Revlon kissable balms, so I had to check haha! No luck there but I stopped by the Joe fresh section and was pleasantly surprised, they definitely have quite the collection of makeup goods. I got one of the lip tints, and I'm loving it so much that I want to go back for the other two colors I was eyeballing. 
Shine Lipstick in "kiss"

It's called a shine lip stick, it provides a subtle hint of color with a nice glossy look. It's moisturizing, and even when the color wears my lips are still nice and soft.
I hope you all had a lovely day
Bye for now,

    1. They smell soo good and they just seem so nice, I love a good scrub. Have you tried the cake scrubs in general? If so, does the smell linger on your skin?

    2. Not really...it disappears pretty much once you're out of the shower.

    1. I saw it a couple weeks ago and really like it, so when I went back yesterday I had to get to get the tee. I am really excited about the cleanser, I've used it once so far, it has the lightest scent but it's so pleasant (reminds me of baby oil!). It made my skin so smooth and soft. Best part was my skin didn't feel tight/dried after using:)

    1. It's so funny because I went especially for the Korres lip butters, and I couldn't find..and you are trekking around trying to find Cake and no luck for you. We need to start going there randomly and see what we can find. Surprisingly yesterday they had a variety of items, which I hadn't seen before. Let me know if you do find:)
