Perusing the shelves on Sephora has become one of my favorite activities as of late – it’s much less overwhelming than scrolling through umpteen pages of skincare, haircare, and makeup products on their website. Plus, being able to see the true colors and textures of the products before purchasing them makes such a difference.
Over the last few weeks, I’ve picked up a bunch of new-to-me beauty products (mostly skincare!) and thought it would be fun to share them with you, plus my initial thoughts!
Beauty Products I’ve Purchased Recently
Herbivore Blue Tansy Mask – I’ve only used this mask twice so far and I am SO impressed. My skin has been a mess lately and using this has cleared it up so fast and leaves it so soft. Definitely worth the money! It’s also clear so if you need to run out quick, it’s totally possible.
Caudalíe Deep Cleansing Exfoliator – This was an accidental purchase when picking up my favorite detox mask but figured I’d give it a try! I’ve only used it a few times, but love how soft it leaves my skin.
Sunday Riley Good Genes – Sunday Riley products have always been a favorite of mine and when this product was on sale (two for $85) on QVC, I figured there was no better time than now to give it a try. Worst-case scenario, I didn’t like it. Best case scenario, I loved it and have two for the price of one. I haven’t been super consistent with using it but I like it so far.
Pai Feather Canyon Eye Cream – This eye cream was love at first use. My eyelids have been so dry all winter and I had an eczema flare-up for a few weeks and nothing seemed to work, until this eye cream! It is on the expensive side but it works so well and hasn’t caused any irritation. Definitely repurchasing!
The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid – My skin has been so dry lately and after hearing so many good things about this hyaluronic acid, I finally picked it up. I’ve been using it for a week or so now and I’m not sure how I’m feeling about it!
The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension – I grabbed this product when I was grabbing the hyaluronic acid (above) and to be honest, I don’t love it. The texture is weird, it’s a little oily (and not in a good way), and I think it’s caused my skin to break out. Will not be repurchasing!
Nécessaire Body Serum – I’ve been using Nécessaire products for a few years now and I have no idea what took me so long to try the body serum! My skin gets SO dry in the summer and this serum has been a game changer (make sure to layer your moisturizer on top of it!).
Summer Fridays Lip Butter Balm – This isn’t exactly a new-to-me product, but it has been a long time since I’ve purchased it! Now available in three shades, I opted for vanilla (clear) and the new packaging makes applying it so much easier than the original packaging.
