If you are anything like me, you LOVE a good sale, honey! And by love I mean you drop everything you’re doing to check it out in a moment’s time. Am I proud of this, you ask… no, but there are sales like this one that REALLY matter! Twice a year, Sephora has a sale for their Beauty Insider clients. There are just a hand full of cosmetic retailers that have sales, and Sephora is certainly one of few that takes great care of their clients and shows them appreciation through sales and other perks throughout the year!
This week is wrapping up what I think is one of the best sales in the cosmetics world. Sephora is having their “A Love Note” Shopping Event! The only way you can take advantage of the Shopping Event discounts are if you are a Beauty Insider member. So basically just sign up, ‘cause it’s free yall! There are 3 different levels based on the amount you spend in store within the year (VIB Rouge, VIB and Beauty Insider), but EVERYONE in the program gets a discount during the event (VIB Rouge- 15%, VIB, 15% and Beauty Insider- 10%). You can see the details about the different levels on the Sephora website. Don’t wait, my friend! This sale is over April 12th for Beauty Insiders and the 13th for VIB and Rouge clients!
This time around, I was sure to stock up on skin care for myself and my professional artistry kit. I even bought items that I really didn’t need quite yet, but knew I would need to replenish before the next sale comes around. Here are a few items I purchased:
This is certainly a moisturizer all the girls in Sephora are raving about. I have a combination skin type with a little more dry skin around my jaw. I was told this moisturizer will help to hydrate and balance my skin to perfection. I think I will purchase the Belif The True Aqua Moistuizing Bomb for my professional kit since I was told that it is quick absorbing and great in hydrating all skin types.
Update: Love the moisturizer for very dry skin. It is just a bit too moisturizing for me, so I will be adding it to my kit for my clients. I will, however, be purchasing the Belif Aqua Bomb instead!
Now, THIS is strictly for my professional kit, and I am so excited to pamper my clients with these Eye Masks! While I apply their eye makeup on the lids, their under eyes will be getting the super spa treatment! I cannot wait!
Update: Ok, ok, ok... I know I said I was going to use it for my clients, but I HAD to try it! I have been having quite a bit of fatigue and tired-ness that you could see in my eyes. My eyes did look much better and hydrated. There was still a bit of puff, but I attribute the remaining puffiness to the amount of water I have been consuming (or not consuming, lol.)
This is always a staple product in my skin care regimen! I literally have ALL sizes sold as well as deluxe sample sizes for when I travel. It is such a gentle yet effective cleanser that I absolutely love. I have tried others across the years, but I seem to always find my way back to Fresh!
This is a new one for me. I have used it on clients and I could see their smooth skin radiate after 1 application! I cannot wait to see how I fit this in with my favorite Face Polish by Laura Mercier! I can just envision the 2 giving me the glow every woman deserves!
Update: Just after 1 week, I do see a smoother and clearer skin.
So, I am certainly that client that every store loves to lure at the register! As I stand in line and look at all of the mini/sample sized products at Sephora’s check-out area, there is always a goodie or two that I cannot pass by! These Peels are certainly one of those goodie that I just had to get! The price is good and just enough for me to get a good round of Peels!
Bio-Cellulose Lip Mask
I also got a couple of special treats that are not available even on the Sephora website yet!!! They are the Sephora Collection Bio-Cellulose Lip Masks! I got all the options they had, and would have bought more if they were available!!! The 2 I purchased were the Rose Lip Mask (good for moisturizing and softening) and the Shea Lip Mask (good for protecting and reparing.) I cannot wait to try all of these goodie!
Update: OMGGGGGGGGG!!!! I used the Rose Lip Mask the other day, and bay-bay!!! It gave me so much life!!! I am a lip stain wearer, and my lips tend to be on the dryer side. This mask right here??? I WILL be repurchasing... like today!!! It left my lips smoother than before, and any dry skin that was settled on the top was easy to just wipe off. A-MAZE-INGGGGGG!!!
Moral of the story ladies, sign up for the Beauty Insider program if you have not done so already, check out all the makeup and skin care your heart desires, and most importantly SHOP TILL YOU DROP!!! Don’t forget, the sale ends April 12th for Beauty Insiders and the 13th for VIB and Rouge!
