End of The Year Purchases

So it's the end of 2018 and to me, it flew by quicker than most other years. Work has kept me busy and everything is at a nice pace. We're anticipating the first and second quarter to be busier than normal, (I work in the wedding industry designing/producing stationary) with Spring/Summer brides booking appointments and rushing to get their orders in. My goal is to get everybody on schedule! Better yet, a head of it, since no one seems to realize just how quickly time flies by. 

Anyways, Black Friday came and then Boxing Day. I bought a couple things here and there, but these are the last two hauls I made. First, Bath and Body Works as they had their semi-annual sale, plus a $10 off $40 coupon. I keep these creams at work by my desk and they're scattered around the house. The sprays are nice after the shower or sometimes as a light room spray.

Love the texture of these creams, except Cucumber Melon...which has a scent so strong, it creeps onto your taste buds. Exchange. Happy Vibes and Wild Strawberry are nice for spring. I'm a sucker for anything peachy, so I actually bought two.
Happy Vibes and Waikiki Coconut for warmer months, Vanilla Bean for whenever and Vanilla Bean Noel for right now.
It smells like cookies! 
Okay, so I am in love LOVE with Made About You and I've been eyeing the cream and spray online (since it's discontinued) and deciding whether or now I want to buy it. So glad I spotted these beside the cash register and picked them up!! 
Repurchase of The Ordinary's Glycolic Acid, which I like using every second or third day. My skin loves this stuff, keeps it soft and smooth
and a try buy of The Chemistry Hyaluronic Concentrate for those extra super dry months.
Another item I wanted to try, NOID's Sanskrit Saponins. A cleanser in a tube, kind of smells like a mix of bread with a touch of peanut butter. Doesn't sound appealing at all, but muster through it- I've been loving this every couple of days after taking my make up off. My pores and skin feel clean. Squeaky clean! But not stripped.
As someone who loves chemical exfoliation, I picked up some more Lactic Acid 10% + HA. I use this in rotation with the other acids.
