I love trying new face masks! This week we will be chatting about the Farmacy Bright-On Massage Activated Vitamin C Mask that I picked up during the Sephora VIB Sale. This mask in particular jumped out at me for a few reasons… one the colour change intrigued me. Secondly, my skin has been so blah lately. The claims that this particular mask seemed perfect for my skin right now. Farmacy Bright-On promises to improve uneven skin-tone, pores and dullness. The texture of my skin and my pores have needed some serious improvement as of late. Continue reading
Last week I posted my Sephora Spring VIB Rouge Sale Wish List so it seems fitting today, now that my online order has come in, to share with you what I bought! Unlike in the fall, I was actually healthy during the first access weekend for VIB Rouge so I actually got to go to the store this time. I went Friday during the day so it was really quiet in there so it made for a quick and efficient shopping experience. Unlike past sales, I actually, for the most part, stuck to my wish list! I did add one item as I had been looking at it online in the days leading up to the sale. But otherwise I was in and out of the store in less than 15 minutes! I already talked about most of these items so I’m not going to be going into detail on why I chose them like I usually do (because normally I go in a totally different direction than my wish list).
The Sephora Spring VIB Rouge Sale is right around the corner! This time around I’m looking to haul some skincare. I’ve been really getting into researching new products to use in my routine. One of the biggest deterrents for me for buying quality skincare is the price so the sale seems like a great time to pick up some new products!
Sephora Spring VIB Rouge Sale Wish List
Farmacy | Sleep Tight Firming Night Balm
I used a sample of the Farmacy Sleep Tight Firming Night Balm and I really loved the way it made my skin feel in the morning. It supports firming and toning of the skin, as well as reduces fine lines. I’m all about preventative skincare when it comes to anti-aging products so I would love to add this product to my routine. The interesting part about this product is that it is a balm but it melts into an oil in your hands as it warms. Continue reading
Hi guys! I’ve been making an effort to do a face mask a week as part of my skincare routine so I’ve been really enjoying trying out different ones that I’ve acquired over the past while. Today I’m sharing my recent experience with the Farmacy Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask with you. I picked this up with some Sephora points with another Farmacy product but this was my first time using it. Farmacy is a brand I had been wanting to try for awhile so I was eager to try this out (as well as the Sleep Tight Balm which I’ve recently emptied 💔).
When first applied the Farmacy Honey Potion feels exactly like you would think… sticky like sweet honey. I globbed (that’s the best word I can think of) it all over my face and instantly felt a warming sensation. After snapping a quick picture, I started to massage it into my face as the instructions indicate for 1 to 2 minutes. It continued to warm and transformed into a white cream. The packaging said it would change but I was pretty surprised with how much it transformed (second photo below). After I was done massaging it into my face I let it sit for 15 minutes before removing it. The last photo below is right before I rinsed it off. Continue reading
Hi guys! July is coming to a close so with that brings my monthly round up of favourites. Though my weekends were quite minimal when it came to makeup, I did play with makeup more on week days. I’d say overall it was a pretty balanced month. Between some new makeup coming into my life and knocking my socks off and focusing on skincare I think I have a pretty well rounded favourites today!
Morphe | The Jaclyn Hill Palette
I’ve done two posts on this palette this month, a first impressions and then one with five makeup looks using this palette. With that said, I’m still in love with it and I am still continuing to use it over other palettes in my collection. I feel like between this palette and the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette, I have found the palettes that will dominate my summer. The possibilities with this palette are really quite endless. It is a bit pricy to ship to Canada, but honestly with the size of this palette and the quality of the shadow, it’s quite comparable to an oversized palette that you would spend a similar amount on at Sephora. The Jaclyn Hill Palette is currently sold out but is set to return in August.
Buxom | Full-On Lip Polish in Dolly
Another gloss in my favourites?! Who am I?! I had a gloss in my favourites last month and here we are again. I won this mini gloss in a giveaway that Pretty Ruff Life put on quite a few months ago and I’ve started to use it more now that the Becca gloss opened my mind up. I really love this formula! It isn’t sticky, it has a fun tingle and it is great for keeping in my purse. It’s definitely an every day shade so it goes with whatever makeup (or lack of makeup) I happen to have on.
