'Tis The Season: A Sephora Haul
Sorry about the blogging break these past couple weeks! As much as I love reading blogs and watching You Tube videos, sometimes I just can not get the inspiration to write yet another product review. I feel like so many others do it so much better, so rather than try to keep up I am trying to find another way to talk about all my beauty obsessions!
Believe it or not, this is the first year that I really took part in the Sephora VIB sale! This year I happened to need a few products because I was out of several things. Perfect timing! The Sephora VIB sale is a great time to stock up on necessities or purchase large ticket items that never go on sale.
I stocked up on some Shiseido Facial Cotton, the holy grail of cotton. I was out for about a month and I definitely missed these plush babies! I also bought some Clarisonic brush heads because it was time to change it up anyway. I've recently got into exfoliating my skin pre-shave and what a difference it makes! My skin is super sensitive and dry, and exfoliating really helps prevent razor burn and other issues. I love my current Kheils scrub, but I decided to try the Philosophy Gingerbread Man scrub. It smells divine! To go with it I decided to try the new Origins Ginger Body Oil which comes in a handy spray bottle for easy application. I'm hoping this will be a fast way to moisturize at 6 am before I rush out the door for work.
Speaking of dry sensitive skin, I was in desperate need of something ultra hydrating for face and body. I went with the FAB Ultra Repair Cream because it contains no harsh ingredients and has soothing oatmeal for dry, itchy skin. I am irrationally excited about this product. However anyone with dry, itchy skin understands that!
On to the fun stuff- the makeup! I picked up the Dior Hydra Life BB Cream after using the sample I got a few weeks ago. It is a little light for me, but easily warmed up when mixed with a darker foundation or with bronzer. The coverage is fantastic, and I love how hydrating it is on my skin throughout the day. I also picked up the Giorgio Armani Master Primer because when I tested this out, it seriously made my skin so soft and luminous like nothing I have ever felt before. Probably the best primer for dry skin that I have ever used. I also purchased a refill of the Armani Master Corrector in Peach, and a YSL Sheer Candy in #9, and the Dior Lip Maximizer. This last one was a total impulse buy, but I liked the way it felt, and it did seem to smooth out the texture of my lips.
All in all, very excited to have all my goodies! I have already dug in to most of them! What did you buy from the sale?
