Mini Haul | Big W & Priceline!



Today I went into the shops with the intention of getting the Simple Light Moisturiser.. but I got all of the products shown in the above picture, including the cup. So this is my spring skincare & Christmas haul.

Christmas Mug
A few days ago I saw these giant Christmas mugs in Big W and I just had to have one. It costed $4.97 which is pretty good and it's adorable.

Garnier BB Cream for Oily Skin
I don't actually have oily skin but I tried a BB cream a few weeks ago and it was super oily and I didn't like it so I bought one that is designed for oily skin in the hopes that it would be y'know, less oily. I needed a BB cream because it's getting into the summer time now so it's super hot and I can't stand wearing full coverage foundation in really humid weather. I'll definitely do a review on this product considering I haven't really boarded the BB train yet. It costed me $10 at Big W but usually costs around $12. 

Simple - Kind to Skin - Hydrating Light Moisturiser
I bought this moisturiser just because when I use normal moisturisers my skin doesn't absorb all of it - even when I use a little bit - so I thought I'd try a light one. It usually costs $9.99 but I got it on sale for $8.49.

Simple - Kind to Skin - Soothing Facial Toner
I needed an alcohol-free toner because the one I have really dries my skin out. I got away with using it for a while there but it just hasn't done much good in the long term for my face. I love Simple - I don't think I've ever disliked one of their products before so I thought I'd buy the 50ml Toner for $3.39 on sale but usually it's $3.99. I bought the small sizes of this toner and the eye make up remover just so I can have a try of it. 

Simple - Kind to Skin - Eye Make-Up Remover
My sister has this eye make up remover and I loved it so I bought it because I can't just keep using all of her product. It costed $3.39 on sale but usually it's $3.99 for the small 50ml bottle. 



Another thing I noticed at Priceline this week was the infamous Bioderma range! I'm not 100% sure whether or not I'll be buying anything yet - if there is an introductory offer I will but if not I'm not sure. But just posting this so that if you aren't aware, they are starting to sell Bioderma in Australia at Priceline. If I do buy anything it will be the Micellar water though. 

What skincare products have you been loving and are you excited about Christmas? 


  1. I love Simple products, especially their light moisturiser. I don't know if you can get L'Oreal Paris Skin Perfection 3-in-1 Micellar Solution (what a mouthful) in Australia but that's a lot cheaper than the Bioderma one here in the UK and I've seen some bloggers say it's a cheaper dupe. Haven't tried the Bioderma one myself but I do use the L'Oreal one and it's great.

  2. Simple is definitely one of my favourites. I've heard of it and I've kind of looked for it but I've never seen it. Bioderma Crealine is the only Micellar water I've actually ever seen in person and that's just way too expensive I think. $30 on a student budget is a lot of money :P

  3. I thought it was expensive enough over here but the prices in the picture you posted made my bank balance cry a little.
    Maybe we should petition for Simple to do one, then it would be much more affordable.

  4. Yeah, I definitely research cosmetics and every single place I could possibly buy them and find the cheapest one haha. I tend to refuse to buy anything full price. It would be great if Simple did one! I think everyone will be getting on the band wagon pretty soon, kind of like the BB cream frenzy.
