Tarte Rainforest of the Sea vol. II Palette

I've been wanting to get this particular eyeshadow palette for a while, but I held off because of the mixed reviews. There were some complaints about it not being pigmented enough. When I got this goodie in the August Boxycharm, I was super thrilled!

Despite Boxycharm having issues due to Hurricane Irma (their headquarters is located near Miami, but the warehouse is in Massachusetts), they were still able to ship out the boxes. I wouldn't have minded not getting this month's box because it's more important that everyone stayed safe when the storms hit. However, I did notice some charmers get their boxes, and I didn't get an shipping notification in the email. No tracking, nothing. When I checked my mailbox though, there it was! There have also been issues with the Postal Services due to the hurricane.

Dr. Roebuck's POLISH 2-in-1 Facial Scrub and Mask

With my dry skin, I always need to exfoliate to slough off dead skin. I don't like to spend too much on skincare because I don't trust that it'll always work or give me the results I want. Here's a little profile on my skin: dry, dark circles and lines under my eyes, red on the nose, white heads on flaky dead skin on the sides of nose, tiny pores on cheeks, and smile lines (that get accentuated with foundation).
