I wait for the Sephora VIB sale which happens twice a year, but this time around the wait seemed to be especially worth it. I had completely run out of so many of my beauty essentials so I eagerly waited for Sephora to announce their sale dates. I took full advantage of the sale this time around by stocking up on my favorites and decided to try out some new products. I figure since it’s almost my birthday, why not treat myself? Here is what I purchased and why I love it:
Farmacy Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm with Echinacea GreenEnvy™–
I have the honey mask by this brand and absolutely love it. The philosophy behind the brand is that of farm fresh ingredients, which I really appreciate. This balm is very light weight and feels so soft and luxurious on the skin, without leaving any greasy residue on the skin. Highly recommend this if you are in the market for a new cleansing balm which will feel like a pamper routine.
Kiehl’s Since 1851 Ultra Facial Cream –
This is hands down my favorite moisturizer. I have been using it for around a year now and it never disappoints. It sits beautifully under makeup and sinks in like a dream into my just washed face when I get out the shower. It is lightweight, hardly has any scent and is a no fuss moisturizer that delivers hydration and softness to my face. I learned my lesson the hard way and now have two back ups of this.
SEPHORA COLLECTION Foot Masks
Since I don’t get pedicures too often during the colder months, I like to have a pamper night where I put on one of these masks and do my own nails. They are a great excuse to put your feet up and relax- you literally can’t walk around in them. They leave my feet super soft and the experience is just so relaxing. I enjoy the lavender and almond.
Kiehl’s Since 1851 Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1
I need to have a lip balm on me at all times and this one was does the trick. It’s not at all greasy and protects my lips from cold air. I like to use this before going to bed as well.
Murad Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30 PA+++
This is an excellent daytime moisturizer that has a good amount of SPF and also does not leave the skin greasy, sticky or with a white cast. I especially love to use this in the summer months. I love that it smells like oranges:)
SEPHORA COLLECTION Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover
This product really surprised me. I have used drugstore and high end eye makeup removers and have found this to be comparable if not better than many high end ones I’ve used in the past. I don’t have to tug in order to remove my eye makeup and it doesn’t feel heavy at all. I will definitely be repurchasing this one.
Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation SPF 15 Golden Honey 5.75
Bobbi Brown foundation has quickly become my favorite foundation for every day. I started using it during the summer and the formula is great to wear year round. This feels like I have nothing on my skin, yet provides my skin with the most natural coverage. You have to try this foundation to understand how lightweight yet beautiful the finish is. It is a very thin consistency which immediately sinks into the skin and becomes part of it. This foundation has truly transformed my standards when it comes to face makeup. Since getting it, I have yet to reach for another foundation. Truly remarkable product that is highly underrated in my opinion.
Rosebud Perfume Co. Rosebud Salve Rosebud Salve
I keep this lip salve on my night stand tablet and use it before going to bed. It keeps my lips hydrated throughout the night and the tin lasts forever. Ive been enjoying the rose mint scent.
OLEHENRIKSEN Transforming Walnut Scrub
This is a new scrub for me and I’ve been using it for about a week now. I love how soft it makes my skin and the small bits of walnut are so satisfying- I know my skin is being exfoliated.
Fresh Soy Face Cleansing Milk
This has been my go to cleanser for morning and night and I absolutely love it. I’ve been using only cleansing milks instead of foaming cleansers and have seen a difference in my skin.
Buxom Full-On™ Lip Polish Dolly
This is a great gloss to wear on top of literally any lip color. I love how it gives just the right amount of shine. It does tingle a little but not enough where it bothers me especially since I wear it over my lipstick.
NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Annapurna
I had heard so many good things about this foundation and I do enjoy the matte version so I thought I would give this one a try. I really like it! The color matches my skin tone perfectly. It’s a great every day foundation and nice to alternate with my beloved Bobbi Brown.
