Going to Winner’s used to be an exercise in patience for me. In the past, I’d walk in with the express purpose of finding something I needed, whether it be clothes, shoes, or food items. This was a horrible, no-good, bad idea. For me, at least. Me of little patience when I’m on a timeline.
For those that might not know, Winner’s is a store which sells off-season and overstocked items at a lower price. Therefore, the stock is not consistent. So, you never really know what you’re going to find. Yes, they have a million shirts, a wide assortment of footwear, and copious amount of home goods…but they still might not have what you are looking for specifically. Therefore, for someone who has some anxiety about shopping (AKA me), it’s a much better idea to go into a Winner’s with a mind to browse and not to find the (fill in the blank) you need.
One of my favourite areas to browse in Winner’s is the beauty aisle. Oftentimes, you can find some nice brands for even better prices. I’ve run across some good finds from Andalou Naturals, Sibu, and a bunch of other brands I might normally have to buy online. Recently I’ve been loving the A’kin Cellular Radiance Serum. In fact, I’ve been loving it so much, that when I ran across another bottle, I snatched it up immediately. I think I might have paid $7 for this little jar of goodness.
This serum comes in oil form. Which is not a bad thing in my books; I love using oils on my face. Heck, I love using oils for almost anything, if I’m being honest. The oil is a beautiful reddish-gold colour, with an earthy smell. Be warned it’s not a fabulous smell which makes you sit up and take notice or one that you want to breathe in too heartily. I find it…alright.
But the softness of my skin afterwards…that is much more than alright! It’s downright happiness inducing. I don’t know if I’d go so far as to say I’ve noticed a reduction in wrinkles. And in all honesty, I’m not quite sure what people mean when they say their skin is less dull after using products. I mainly just go by feel. And this makes my face feel lovely. Utterly lovely.
