Dermstore 30 percent off coupon code: member30

Yes, internet, here are more tales of shopping from the idiot who is supposedly on a low-buy.

Here's my rationalization: trying out DHC's original stinky cleansing oil rekindled my love for DHC's Gentle Touch cleansing oil.

DHC Mild Touch Cleansing Oil (5 oz.) $24.00

And I am actually running out of my current cleansing oil.

I posed my bottle in front of my Marimekko washbag because POPPIES.

Also, I remembered that on Friday night I was having the dickens of a time applying a fairly new-to-me foundation

on top of the remnants of this mask

Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask (2.1 0z.) suggested retail $165, available at Overstock for $102.04

which I'd forgotten I'd been testing.

My foundation balled up like crazy. I wished I'd had a beautyblender to use, but I'd passed one along to my daughter and misplaced the other. I made do by blending and BLENDING and BLENDING with my fingers, then used a large powder brush to whisk off the extraneous balls of goo. (Look, I'm sorry, but sometimes beauty isn't pretty.)

(By the way, this is the second time in a week that I've admitted to having lost something I like. Which just goes to show what you're dealing with around here.)

At any rate, you'd be proud of me, Internet. For a brief shining moment, there was a $300 French hair dryer in my shopping basket, as well as a deeply discounted professional nail care kit that might have brought my sad January Chicago fingernails and cuticles back to life. But I removed them, and bought just the cleanser and two beautyblenders (one for my vanity, one for my washbag.)

Also, instead of buying the pre-packaged "Two Beauty Blenders plus a FREE Bottle of our Special Beauty Blender Shampoo--now with more plastic!"

I just bought two individual beautyblenders.

Confession: I already fell for that particular pitch and now have a lifetime supply of that beautyblender cleanser. Or, as they so winsomely named it, blendercleanser. (Don't waste your money; hand soap is perfectly adequate.)

As an aside: I'm thoroughly sick of typing these lowercase compound nouns. They can bite my asscheeks.

At any rate, if you're in the market, that 30 percent off code is pretty decent. And they're offering free shipping.

Of course, they also said something about free samples, but I'm trying to be brave.

    I was going to ask about the blender cleanser - if its worth buying ... but you answered me - thanks . Will be using soap.
