Mini Hair and Face Haul

With thirty inches of hair, I will shamelessly stockpile hair stuff, especially if it's on sale. That said, I have absolutely no regrets buying all this shampoo and conditioner. I don't know why I feel the need to post on this, but it still counts as a mini haul. Amusingly, the total comes out to be exactly $25, with tax. Little things like that make me happy, not just because it's a nice even number, but because I'm still poor with no income, so yay for cheap things.

For "hauls" I might just do a "first impressions" reaction because I don't have enough time to really try out everything, but in this case, I did try out all of the products.

»Herbal Essences Shampoo and Conditioner
Most "moisturizing" shampoos and conditioners make my hair greasy, but I generally like the Herbal Essences brand because it's good quality, smells nice, and leaves my hair feeling very silky and soft. I used to use the "Pin Straight" shampoo and conditioner all the time before they discontinued it. This one is nothing special, but for the price of $3 each, it's not too bad.

»CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser
I've been looking for a gentle, effective face cleaner for a while, and scoured the internet for one that met my criteria without breaking the bank. I found this gallery of some of the best rated face washes, but most were too expensive. However, I am an adamant advocate of quality over quantity, so I will allow myself to splurge (somewhat) on skincare. This one cost over $15, more than double all four of the hair things, but it just may be worth it because my face feels so good right now.

»Herbal Escapes Kiwi Lime Squeeze Clarifying Shampoo and Conditioner
I've actually bought this one multiple times before, but I've never seen it so cheap. It's usually a dollar which is cheap enough, but wow, 2 for $1.50 is pretty nice. Usually, I would be hesitant to recommend something that is so low priced because unfortunately that sometimes correlates with low quality, but for some reason, this shampoo and conditioner works super well for me. I have oily hair so this set is good for clarifying. It doesn't work for everyone because it is so drying, so some people absolutely hate it. If you have oily hair, I recommend giving it a shot, because if you don't like it, it's only about $2 total. ◊
