Review: Optiva Aqua-Capture Serum and Nourishing Night Cream

So firstly my skin type is dry/normal. I'm prone to hormonal breakouts. Every time I get a pimple it scars whether or not I've popped it (gross I know). So my main issue are my scars. But like I mentioned I do have somewhat dry skin and I really do feel like these have helped with my dry patches and preventing my skin from flaking. 

1. Optiva Aqua-Capture Serum 
30ml $24

"This super concentrated skin hydrating serum has a light formulation, which is easy to apply and works deep into the skin. The serum strengthens the skin barrier in just two weeks improving its tolerance for the long term. Specially formulated to offer an immediate comforting and calming effect. Apply after cleansing and before moisturising both morning and night. Clinically proven to reveal healthier skin in just two weeks."

News: 30% off NYX Cosmetics at Target (Finished)

In case you don't follow NYX Cosmetics Australia on Facebook they posted that they were having 30% off so if you're interested head in before it all sells out.

Sorry for all the short blog posts but I'm so stressed with uni assignments and... I'm planning a last minute trip to wait for it...EUROPE. I'm so excited but I've only just booked tickets which means I have a lot of planning to do. Plus I'm still at uni and have a tonne of assignments to get through. So once again I apologise.  

Anyway...I really want to pick up a couple things but I'll have to hold off because I need to save for the trip :( but I may pick up one teeny tiny thing). Sales on NYX products in target doesn't come around often. 

Let me know if you pick up anything from the sale?
