Last week Sephora ran its bi-annual VIB sales. Every time this year Sephora offers 15% off all purchases for 5 days, no exclusions. Yes, that’s right no exclusions! This means that item that never goes on sale; well this is the time beauty lover and enthusiasts, stock up fill their carts with new items, all in the sake of a great sale. I usually use this sale to stock up on and items I know that I repurchase constantly and give me the chance try new products that I’ve always wanted to, but didn’t want to pay full price for. My makeup/skin care collection is pretty set, so this year I was focused on scents. These are the items is picked up.
I picked up two scents from the Marc Jacobs fragrance line. These fragrance splashes are the latest from the line, perfect for the spring and summer months. I was able to smell the rain scent a few weeks ago in stores, so I knew I would love it, but took a chance on the cucumber scent. Well, it wasn’t what I had hoped for. I was expecting a fresh cucumber scent, but instead, it smelt more like a floral scent, with a cucumber splash. It wasn’t bad, but not what I expected, therefor I returned it. The rain scent is great; I’ve been using it daily. It’s a light fresh spring scent; the only downside is the staying power is not long at all.
The next item is the Urban Decay all night setting spray. This is a repurchase that just so happened to run out, in time for the sale! I love this product. I use it at the end of my makeup routine, spraying it on m face enabling my makeup to stay on all day long. I’ve used this for a few years and continue going back to it because it really does work!
The final product was a new purchase. I heard good things about this spot acne treatment. I’ve used one from origins before, and wanted to see if there were any other products like it that would fight those stubborn pimple spots away. Well, I’m disappointed to say that it did not work to my expectations and returned it because of that. I didn’t enjoy the consistency, as I found it too runny, perhaps it’s because I was use to the origins product, which is more of a gel, thicker product. Also, the scent was horrible, smelling like a medicine that should not belong on your face! So I’m still on the hunt for a great spot acne treatment to have on hand when those pesky little things like to show up! Leave me any recommendations in the comment section if you know or use any good one!
FYI, Sephora has a great return policy where you can try the products, and if you’re not satisfied, you can return it for a full refund!
