Hi Friend! Happy Wednesday! We did it, we made it to the middle of the week. I hope your week has been going well + it ends on a high note! I’m blessed to be able to say that life is going pretty good for me right now. Today, I wanted to talk about the products I purchased during the Sephora Savings Event last month. I feel like [and I could be wrong here] that a lot of people tell you what they bought during the sale, but don’t really follow up on their thoughts of said products. So today, thats exactly what I’m doing.
This post is all about what was I bought + and then of course I went back + purchased more products 2 other times [sorry babe lol]. It’s been a month + for most products I feel that is ample time to form an opinion on whether or not you like them.
Origins Checks and Balances™ Frothy Face Wash
This isn’t a new product to me this is the second bottle I’ve bought. It is the best cleanser I have found. My skin feels super clean. I feel that it really cleans out the pours of oil, dirt, etc. Plus you can’t really beat the price point. For a clean, “high end” brand, I feel its very affordable, compared to others in that category.
ILIA DayLite Highlighter Powder [Shade:Decades – Soft Gold]
This is a new product to me. I have to say I really like this highlighter. It does look a lot like Lawless’ highlighter but I swatched them next to each other + there are some differences. This one is a little lighter in color + brighter. Its more “gold” than champagne. I like this one for when I want a little more than the “lit from within” look. I love the packaging, its durable yet thin. And it has a good size mirror.
IGK First Class Charcoal Detox Dry Shampoo
This is yet another product that isn’t new to me as I’ve bought it several times. It is the only dry shampoo that I’ve tried [and I’ve tried them all ha!] that actually “cleans” my hair, smells good and gives volume. I also love that it is vegan + cruelty free.
Summer Fridays Summer Skin Nourishing Body Lotion
This is one of the new products I bought that I was very excited to try. I’ve been looking for a body lotion that is clean + don’t cost an arm and a leg ha! I love it. It really left my skin super soft + you really don’t need a lot. The packing is a very nice neutral lol I will say that the smell is a little weird. It does smell like coconut but it also can smell like play dough. The good part is it the smell doesn’t last + it’s not very strong either.
tarte wink of H2O vegan collagen eye cream
So I was on the hunt for a clean eye clean that wasn’t all about depuffing the eyes since that is not a problem I have. I wanted a clean eye cream that helped with fine lines, wrinkles + dark circles. I really like this product! It is a great consistency + I feel like it really works. I like how my under eyes look when I do my makeup as it hydrates my under eye really well.
Okay, so this is probably the most luxurious lip product that I’ve ever bought. I kinda wanted to not like it because its so pricy but I have to say I really like it. It really does work + make my lips feel super smooth. It doesn’t tingle like most lip volumizer, it feels, tastes, and smells like peppermint + doesn’t last long but the results do. I have a feeling I’m going to be repurchasing this, again sorry babe lol.
Farmacy Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer
This is the coolest skin care/beauty product packaging I’ve seen. It’s so pretty ha! I really like the glass hexagon shape jar + wood top. Even though I’m not a fan of jars, this one I can get behind, plus it comes with tools ha! It comes with two metal spatulas to help get the product out so you don’t have to stick your fingers in. The formula of the moisturizer is really good, its hydrating yet thin + absorbs quickly. It also has clean + beneficial ingredients for your skin which we all know I’m a fan of ha!
Nécessaire The Deodorant – With AHA [Scent: Sandalwood]
If you’ve been around a while you know I’m a fan of this deodorant as I’ve blogged about it a couple times. It is a clean product that actually works even when working out. It comes in three scents, unscented, eucalyptus and sandalwood.
beautyblender liquid blendercleanser®
This is the cleanser I’ve used for years to clean my cosmetic brushes + beauty blender/sponges. It works the best I’ve ever tried, as I’ve tried a lot of them. It’s a good, effective product that actually works. One bottle has lasted me a couple of years so its super affordable.
ILIA Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 Foundation [Shade: 7 Diaz]
And last but not not least ha! I was really hoping I’d like this because I wanted something lighter than an actual foundation + I love that it has SPF in it so I can wear it either as makeup which I set or a tinted SPF I’ll wear alone if that makes sense. I really like that its super thin but still has some coverage. Next time I might go up a shade or two though for a little more coverage of some discoloration/scars I have.
Wow, thats it. I bought more than I thought I did ha!
