Skincare Haul | Michael Todd True Organics & My Konjac Sponge

After sharing my most recent  Skincare Wishlist, I placed a couple of orders to receive some of my coveted products. One, I placed pretty comprehensive order from Michael Todd Organics, utilizing the Ipsy discount code, and two, from Abe's Market a retailer of the My Konjac Sponge who was have a special on the product. Can't resist ordering when there's a sale!

As I mentioned in my skincare wishlist, I have added a toning step to my regime; however, I seem to go through them so quickly. I decided to order these two from Michael Todd True Organics. The Blue Green Algae Antibacterial Toner is said to work great for treating acne while still being hydrating. Though that product was my reason for placing an order, I was also intrigued by the Organic Lemon AHA + DMAE Toner. It's an easy, everyday chemical exfoliator ( I am wondering if it is anything similar to the Pixi Glow Tonic?)

Now, I was initially just wanting to purchase the toners, but I just hate paying for shipping! So I bumped up my order to meet the minimum free shipping amount. I was going to just add a mask, but then I saw the Discovery Kits. Yeah, I can't refuse a good set of mini's. I decided to go with the Normal/Combination Skin set as it had more of the products I was interested in trying. The kit comes with five steps/products in one ounce sizes in a clear bag. Included in the Normal/Combination Skin set are: Honey & Oat Gentle Deep Pore Cleanser, Blue Green Algae Antibacterial Toner, Jojoba Charcoal Facial Scrub, Citrus Cream Moisturizer, and Pumpkin Nutrient-Rich Facial Mask. Can't wait to try all of these products! I already have tried the Pumpkin Mask and am happy to have double. Also, it's nice to have a little baby version of the Blue Green Algae Toner.

With my order I also received a foil sample packet with the Cleanse and Tone Cleanser/Toner/Makeup Remover, Hydration Boost Facial Serum, Wild Rose Petal Creamy Body Wash, and Citrus Cream Moisturizer DMAE and Hyaluronic Acid. I saved 30% by using the code AUGIPSY at checkout, which expires on September 30th. Also, the Discovery Kits have a message saying expires September 30th. So don't wait to check it out if you are interested!

Finally for this haul, I ordered the My Konjac Sponge Bamboo Charcoal Face Sponge. I am just so fascinated by this little sponge. Once I heard about it I just had to get it. I ordered it from Abe's Market (Signing up for their newsletter gives you 15% off). They were also have a free shipping and 20% off promo (Score!). I found this out through My Konjac Sponge's Instagram account, so follow if you are curious about purchasing but want to wait for a discount. They also retail at I decided on the Bamboo Charcoal face sponge since that's said to work great for acne prone skin. They also have a Volcanic Scoria version and ones for your body. I kind of want to collect them all!

Well, I am going to have a skin pampering evening tonight! So excited to use all of these products. I will let you know more of my thoughts in future reviews, favourites, etc.! Let me know if there are any products you specifically want to hear more about!
