Mini haul = good mood

I literally watched my life go by over the week end.

I didn’t do anything. Except eat every freaking minute and just lounged around. I was in a bad mood (hormones) and didn’t feel like doing anything at all. I was super lazy and I wanted to kill everyone that go near me.

Sunday, I forced myself to stand up and get ready for our Sunday lunch. But after lunch I was back again feeling lazy and just vegged.

I watched my life go by right in front of my eyes.

Today, I went to do my grocery around noon (I always do my grocery Mondays). After doing my grocery I went inside Healthy Options to pick up some products that I ran out of.

I only needed to repurchase 2 things. Vitamin A (retinol) cream and facial serum. But I came home with some other new products. What else is new? Story of our lives.

So, I might as well do a mini haul. Right?

Here are the 2 things that I needed to re-purchase.

Derma e Vitamin A Retinyl Plamitate Creme


I love this creme. I use it every morning together with my moisturizer and facial serum.

I ran out of facial serum.  I literally just threw my empty bottle in the garbage when I was getting ready this morning.

The last serum I used was Avalon Organics Intense Defense Serum.


But I saw different kinds of facial serums that looked interesting. So, I bought a few that I like.

Derma e Hydrating Serum


I like that it has hyaluronic acid in it.

Derma e CoQ10 Super Repair Serum


First, it has CoQ10 (antioxidant) formula and second it has green tea and pomegranate.

Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Absolute Serum


I have tried Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses range and it is good. In fact I love their toner. It is so hydrating. So, I am sure their serum is good too.

Andalou Naturals Willow Bark Pure Pore Serum


It says that willow bark extract clarifies and minimizes pores, curbs bacteria, and absorbs excess oil. It has salicylic acid that helps fade post-blemish pigmentation. It also has aloe vera that oxygenates, hydrates, and soothes inflammation for even tone and clear, healthy skin.

I picked up a new tube of my favorite lip balm. I opened a new tube 2 weeks ago and I don’t have a tube in stock anymore. I go through this so fast. This is the only lip balm that works for me.

Andalou Naturals Argan + Mint Lip Remedy


Avalon Organics has a new bath & shower gel scent. I love their peppermint and their lemon scents. So, I picked up this new one. It smells so refreshing. Avalon Organics bath & shower gel is one of my favorite shower gels.

Avalon Organics Nourishing Lavender Bath & Shower Gel


I also picked up my favorite Rosehip Oil. I still have one unopened bottle but I decided to get another bottle ‘cos this is always out of stock.

Aura Cacia Rosehip Oil


I love going to Healthy Options. Actually, Claudia and me enjoy going there and spend so much time tinkering with their stuff. Every time she finds out that I went there without her, she tells me: “why did you go without me?”

I am in a better mood today. Shopping beauty products always, always make me feel good.

Last week I went to Zara to pick up denim shorts. I need new denim shorts. hahaha. Seriously, I like the new style of denim shorts that everyone is wearing now. The loose, distressed boyfriend shorts. I picked up 2 blue denim and 1 white denim shorts.

Today, I wore the white one.

  • Hi Miss T,

    Can you please explain what those products are for? My mother might be interested. She and I are huge fans of yours and always look out for your recommendations. Thanks

    • Hi John Henry! Facial serums is just like moisturizers but more potent. There are a lot of different kinds of facial Serum that will suit your facial needs. Like if you have dry skin, or oily skin or you have large pores, etc.

      Rosehip oil is the best beauty oil. It’s so hydrating and good for your skin.

      Vitamin A creme is good for mature skin like me and your mom. It diminishes fine lines and it is anti wrinkle.

      Thanks! 😘

  • You are always my number one source of information on what is at Healthy Options. I buy there for my sunscreen, deodorant & shampoo.

  • I’ve always been curious as how effective Derma e is. I’ve always wanted to try their anti-aging and other moisturizers, toners, serums, exfoliants, night and day creams a chance but I always feel lazy. HAHA If only Healthy Options posted a list of products on their site and actually offered delivery, that would be great! 😀
