When Sephora let me know that it was “my turn to shop” the 20% off sale, I decided to get a few replacement products and then try some new items.
I’ve purchased at least three Dior Cleansing Oils. This product removes all my makeup and rinses clean. Good stuff.
The Belif line is new to me. I tried the aqua bomb cream in the store and was sold. The True Cream Aqua Bomb is a light weight gel cream that is deeply moisturizing. I also love the spa like scent. Per the Sephora description, “this refreshing cream is formulated to “burst” when applied, releasing a flood of weightless moisture onto the skin”. Um, Ok, I don’t know about that, but it is a very moisturizing gel and I like it. I haven’t tried the other two products but will play with those at a later date.
The next item that I ordered was the Caolion Premium Hot & Cool Pore Pack Duo. I’m always looking for a good pore cleanser since I have oily skin and thought I’d give this a try. Plus, I’ve been wanting to jump on the Korean skin care bandwagon, but was interested in trying something different than the ever so popular Koh Gen Do that is now all the rage on youtube beauty channels.
The gray mask is step one and it’s suppose to eliminate blackheads and clarify pores. I tried both products the other day and both masks are fairly intense and not for the gal with sensitive skin. Per the instructions, I applied the gray mask to my clean face and I found this mask fairly irritating on my skin. I did tough it out for the recommend 10 minutes and then rinsed it off for step 2.
Step 2 is suppose to tighten the pores and brighten the skin. This mask has menthol which made my eyes water. Again, toughed it out for 10 minutes and rinsed off.
The results were quite nice. My clogged pores were less visible as the product removes the surface impurities on the skin. The product doesn’t “deep clean” and you won’t get the results that you’d get at a facial with an esthetician. Although I found the products irritating when on my skin, I didn’t have any peeling or redness the next day.
The rapid collagen infusion for lips is totally worthless. I placed this product on my lips and it just sits there, then disappears, but doesn’t seem to add any fullness or plumping properties. A definite waste of money.
Love these! I buy them all the time. I like how the Boscia blotting sheets are quite large and absorb facial oil without disturbing my makeup. These blotting linens would make a great Stocking Stuffer!
The last two items that I purchased were the Sephora Hair ties and and the Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment cream.
I love this hand cream! Very moisturizing , non-greasy and has a nice fresh scent. Only annoyance is that the tube has a screw cap vs. a flip top cap found on most tube hand moisturizers.
So that is it for me. I spent about $160 +/- dollars and finally became a VIB Rouge member. Whoo hooo! So what does that really mean? Well, it means that I spend way too much money at Sephora 😛
