♥ Sally Hansen Haul ♥

So I bought these stuff quite a while ago but I’ve only had the chance to post them here now.

Sally Hansen Haul

Sally Hansen Haul

Priceline had a promotion for Sally Hansen products a while ago where if you spent $20, you can get a bonus package which was worth over $53.30 RRP. I am a sucker for nail polishes especially Sally Hansen stuff and I was in need of a new top coat since my old one have become really gooey even when I try to mix in some nail polish thinner. It’s lasted me over a year so I’m happy to buy a new one.

So here’s what I really bought:

Problem Cuticle Remover and Fuzzy Coat in "Wool Lite"

Problem Cuticle Remover and Fuzzy Coat in “Wool Lite”

I really wanted to try these two products as they intrigued me. I have heard really good things about the cuticle cream and fuzzy coat, well, I’m just a sucker for nail polishes and I really wanted to try this new concept.

The Fuzzy Coat in Wool Lite definitely creates a very unique texture! I think you’d either love it or hate it. I’m not sure how I feel about the other colours in this line though. Not really my cup of tea. The formula, like all the other Sally Hansen nail polishes, I really love!

So I spent about $20 on both of those together and so I was eligible for the gift pack:

  • Everyday Strength Nail Board
  • Nail Growth Miracle Salon Strength Treatment
  • Complete Salon Manicure
  • Mega Shine Extended Wear Top Coat

I have yet to try them except for the complete salon manicure in “Get Juiced” which is a bright pink/peach colour and the Mega Shine Extended Wear Top Coat which was my now-gooey top coat I mentioned before. So far, Mega Shine is my favourite top coat.

“Get Juiced” is a very happy colour, perfect for spring. The formula though is TO DIE FOR. If they weren’t priced so high (RRP AUD$14.95), I’d stick to this line for the rest of my life. Maybe.

Next I want to try the Sally Hansen Insta-Dry line. I already have the speed dry drops from the line but I really want to try the base and top coats!

Have you tried any of the products mentioned above?

Lots of Smiles,

Rubbing Alcohol

Hello again smiley faces!

I hope you are all well.

Today I would like to talk about Rubbing Alcohol. I have recently learnt that this not-so-expensive product is actually very versatile and useful.

Before that though, I want to say that there are cheaper rubbing alcohols around rather than the Isocol brand (the one with the dinosaur on it) they sell at most pharmacies and grocery stores. Though that one is probably the most convenient one to get. However, I don’t know about you but I refuse to pay AUD$10 for one bottle of this stuff.

I actually wanted to get some rubbing alcohol since a while ago but I thought that I still had some at home. Being quite unfamiliar with the stuff, I had no idea that they have an expiry date nor did I know much use of them other than cleaning cuts (which I never do) and to clean walls before you stick things (like hooks) on it. So, long story short, my supply at home was “expired” and I had to throw it out (I searched online whether they can still be used for general cleaning around the house but they all said that the chemicals have somehow changed or something – sorry not a chemist). But again, I didn’t want to spend another $10 to get the bottle which most of its contents will probably end up in the bin again like the last one.

Luckily enough, I held out buying it long enough to come across this particular brand at the asian grocery store at Canning Valle (Perth) which costed me around $5 a bottle. The bottle looks pretty similar if you ask me. Green, same size. Just different brand/sticker and a different lid (click here to see what the Isocol rubbing alcohol looks like).

So what “other uses” did I manage to find for rubbing alcohol?

Personally, I used it to fix my broken blush like one of the many tutorials around on YouTube. The easiest (and laziest, but in a good way) is probably Kandee Johnson’s tutorial. But you can search many others on the internet or if you prefer, a video version on YouTube.

But I also found all these other ways to use it which I have yet to try (but I’d imagine it’d be useful). Here are some of them:

  • Clean your phone (wipe down)
  • Erase permanent markers
  • Clean white boards
  • Make shape-able ice-packs
  • Clean bathroom fixtures (chromes)
  • Clean hairspray off mirrors (although I don’t even own a hairspray right now)

So I hope this post will benefit at least ONE person out there and I’ll post another post soon!

Lots of smiles,

Sita
