Magic Mushrooms, Magic Prices!
ciao bellas! i'll begin today by telling you how absolutely ecstatic i am about the purchase i made this afternoon. if you've been reading here recently, you saw my post on the Origin's Dr. Weil Plantidote Mega-Mushroom Face Serum that i've been using lately to reduce redness and promote general skin fabulosity. since i've been liking the serum so much, i wanted to try out the face cream as well, but wasn't feeling so great about spending $65 on it. today i was at the mall checking out the Origins goodies when the very sweet saleswoman showed me a gift set they were selling that contained not only a 1 oz. size of the Plantidote Mega-Mushroom Face Cream (regular size is 1.7 oz.) but also a 1 oz. of the serum and a 1.7 oz. sized Plantidote Cleanser for...wait for it...$60! can you believe it?! that is a ridiculously great deal, being that just a new serum and face cream would cost you $130. so naturally i had to buy it, who could resist such a catch? i'm very excited to try out the face cream due to the rave reviews it gets on MUA, so i'll definitely be updating when i've given it a good trial run.
interested in this great deal on the Plantidote products? i got mine at Macy's but can't seem to find the set i purchased anywhere on their website, so you should definitely stop by your local branch and ask if they're carrying the Skin Care Starter Set.
do you think your skin will benefit more if you use a cleanser, serum, and moisturizer from the same brand's line? or is mix-and-match skincare just as effective? let me know your opinion in the comments.
