It’s time for another round of TC’s Treasures! But first, take a moment to ask me some questions! I’ll be answering them in a future post. Anyway, back to my favourites — I didn’t think I was going to have a lot of them this month because I’d been doing my best to not buy anything because I really didn’t need anything . . . but then this sleeping mask and eye cream happened, and my best friend’s Christmas/birthday package came to me, so I ended up with a lot more favourite than I’d thought! I also ended up with a place as a favourite, haha! This month’s favourites are all over the place! Check them out!
Sulwhasoo’s Overnight Vitalizing Mask Ex
Jenny introduced me to Sulwhasoo’s Overnight Vialtizing Mask Ex. This is one of those brands I don’t usually touch because it’s far too luxurious for my wallet, but I saw that its price was reasonable ($35-50 USD), so I decided go give this sleeping pack a try. Oh, my goodness — this sleeping pack has quite impressed me! This leaves my face feeling super soft! The spicy ginger scent is also pleasant. Even better that a little goes a long way with this, so this will last me a while, making it worth the money. Unfortunately, I think Sulwhasoo retired this product :(
The Body Shop’s Vitamin E Eye Cream
I saw this eye cream on a few blogs, and I’ve been wanting to try a new eye cream, so I bought this a couple of weeks ago. I am liking this eye cream a lot! It is really hydrating, leaves my eye area soft, and it absorbs quickly. I have to say I like this one a lot better than the eye cream from Lush!
Hask’s Monoi Coconut Oil Hair Care
My best friend sent me a surprise package for Christmas and birthday. In the package were some beauty products. These shampoo and conditioner were one of them! I’ve never heard of Hask before, but I’m loving the fact that they are cruelty-free and their hair care product doesn’t have sulphates, parabens, and et cetera. Plus, their brand is actually pretty cheap compared to some other brands. The Monoi coconut oil line smells so tropical and coconut-y. My hair is definitely loving these products. My bestie chose well!
Organix’s Weightless Healing Dry Oil
Bestie also sent me this hair oil. Now I’ve gone completely natural, so my hair isn’t damaged. I still appreciate her sending me this, though! I love how this adds extra hydration and shine to my locks. This is a must for my hair care routine now!
Burt’s Bee’s Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm
Along with the hair care products, my best friend also sent me this lip balm. I’ve yet to use any Burt’s Bees product, so this is my introductory product to the brand. I really like this lip balm — way better than the Nivea one I’d been using.
In the latter half of January, I played and beat Root Letter, a visual novel game that takes place primarily in Matsue, Japan. The creators incorporated the real city of Matsue and its surrounding area into the game. They featured real shrines, patisseries, cafes, and other landmarks in the game. Hakuouki made me want to visit Kyoto and Hakodate. Yuri!!! on Ice makes me want to visit Karatsu. Now, I want to visit Matsue! I’ve fallen in love with the location, and I want to make a pilgrimage to the city. The game itself wasn’t the best I’ve played, but its city is calling my name!
Are you familiar with any of the my favourites? Have you used any of the beauty products? Is there a place you want to visit because of something you read, watch, or play? Share with me in the comments!
