Happy Monday, y’all! I’ve seen people do videos of packages they have received recently and I always think they’re fun, so I wanted to join in! Unfortunately I can’t do videos right now (soon, I promise!) so instead it’s here on the blog!

The items you see here are items I’ve received in the mail over the last week or so – some I have purchased with my own money and others I received from brands. Of course, all opinions are my own and I’ll make sure to denote if the package is something I received for free. Also, I probably won’t do Mail Monday *every* Monday…I don’t get that much stuff. So expect to see these posts once or twice a month, and let me know if you like them!

My ride or die moisturizer is made by Neutrogena and runs about $18/tub. I’ve bought at least five of these and until recently I had no intention of changing. That is, until Sally Beauty completely BLEW MY MIND and came out with a new line of Generic Value Products skincare.
