Spring Skincare Haul

Over the last few weeks I picked up some new skincare products, some to replace things I've used up and others as back-ups or bargains I just couldn't pass by. This may constitute a rather small haul if you compare it to other beauty bloggers and their loot but I'm really looking forward to using these products!
I've raved about the Garnier Moisture Match moisturisers before, but I believe they have now been discontinued as I just can't find the blue version on shelves anymore. I was at a bargain centre recently and came across two boxes heavily discounted so I purchased one for my skincare back up box and one for my older sister who I think this would work wonderfully for. Another repurchase was my beloved La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+, which is a saviour for acne-prone or just generally crappy skin days. A brand new purchase for me was a total bargain at $0.80c and I love the brand - Derma Sukin Daily Hydrating Wash!  I've actually seen some positive reviews on this product and need a bit of hydration at the moment so it was worth a try.
 I've seen quite a few peel off masks on YouTube and the like, so when I saw this Formula 10.0.6 Get Your Glow On Brightening Peel Off Mask advertised in my supermarket catalogue for half price I was mightily intrigued. I've only used this once but gosh it was satisfying to peel it off, and the scent was really lovely so I'm enjoying this.
See that little hole in the top of my Effaclar Duo+ tube? That would be my puppy Winston's doing, he obviously wanted lovely clear skin too! But how can I be mad at this face?!

I'm really drawn to the aesthetic of Aveeno and have had great success with their products in the past (the night cream and unscented body wash, to be exact) so I added this Aveeno Positively Radiant Cleanser to my stash. Now that I'm actually the kind of blogger who finishes up whole products I don't feel too bad about having unopened cleansers around when I know I'm going to use them - does anyone else feel this way too?

Hope you're all having an amazing day!

  1. I've also been doing some skincare hauling recently haha La Roche-Posay is one of my favourite brands and I love how easily available it is in Australian pharmacies.

    1. It's such a great brand, and I'm so excited that I can get my hands on it easily now - it was such an effort before!

  2. Which version of Effaclar Duo do you have in Australia? I've only ever used the European one with LHA acid but I believe in the States it contains benzoyl peroxide. So confusing! Great haul either way, Emma <3

    1. Thanks Monika! Hope all is well with you, and with baby bean ;) I have to admit I didn't realise so many versions were out, I know ours has been updated to include ingredients to fade marks leftover from blemishes but am not 'up' on much more - I will tweet you an ingredients photo so you can inform me!

  3. Huge fan of Aveeno too, Emma.

    I have been using the body moisturizer in the tub with the blue lid for years. Also got a face moisturizer lotion as a Priceline freebie a while back which surprised me with its quality for the price. I tend to be very sensitive to most drugstore brands but this particular formula is great on my skin after swimming.

    1. Everything I've sampled and tried so far has been so impressive, especially the night cream which I adore. Something about their packaging just speaks to me as well, pearly and lovely haha

  5. I need my umteenth refill of Effaclar Duo, too! Did you guys get the tinted version yet? I saw that at a store recently but they only gave us one shade and it looked on the lighter side of light-medium.
