If you have been following along for very long, you know I am a skincare and product junkie! Here are some of my favorite items and a few things that are on my wish list!
Skincare products I’m currently using:
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask – I have been using this lip sleeping mask for a month or so now, and I really like it! Mine came with a little silicone applicator. It’s not too sticky, has a slight berry flavor, and really does help hydrate my lips. I think this will be especially helpful if you are in a drier climate and/or during the winter months. I use mine every night!
IT Cosmetics Full Coverage CC Cream SPF50 – You hear everyone talking about this product, and that’s really because it is THAT good. Great coverage and 50 SPF. I wear shade light. I put it on with my fingers and work it into my skin with a beauty blender. This specific set comes with a mini Confidence in a Cleanser, a mini Bye Bye Under Eye Eye Cream and a mini Confidence in a Cream. I’ve used up multiple jars of their Confidence in a Cream in the past – it’s a great product.
Lancome CILS BOOSTER XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base – This is a mascara primer that I now use every single time I put on mascara. For me it really makes a difference in the length and volume of my lashes. I let it sit for about 30 seconds before applying my mascara.
Beauty Blender – I’ve been using a beauty blender just about every day for a couple of years. I’m all about a dupe where possible, but this is a product where I think the real deal is worth it. The most important thing when using a beauty blender is that you get it completely wet and them squeeze out the excess liquid. It needs to be very damp to work it’s magic! I found this set of three beauty blenders plus a cleanser for $45. These are usually $20 a piece so that’s a great value.
Give Me Some Balm Lip Set – I don’t wear a ton of lipsticks/lip glosses in my every day, stay-at-home mom lifestyle. I do, however, how for my lips to feel moisturized and taken care of. I just got this set last week and think it’s a fun way to try some new, higher-end lip products!
Isle of Paradise Self-Tanning Drops – These work people! You put a drop or two into your moisturizer, and they will gradually tan your face. Great for summertime. I have shade medium and only use a couple times a week.
Drunk Elephant C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum – This is the Vitamin C serum I have been using for about 6 months, and I think it’s a great product. I mix one pump of this serum with one pump of their B-Hydra Serum. I’m going to try Sunday Riley’s CEO serum next (for the sake of trying things out for you guys!), but would absolutely repurchase this one from Drunk Elephant in the future.
Drunk Elephant C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream – I bought this full price and would 100% buy it again. It’s a thick product, which I like for an eye cream and I love that it has vitamin C in it. I also really like Drunk Elephant’s packaging because the container is airtight and has a pump. I don’t like to have to dip my fingers in my products if I can avoid it.
Peace Out Acne Healing Dots – I have been dealing with acne for over 15 years, so I’ve tried a lot of different products. These work well for later stage zits. These do not, however, have micro needles, and I think those work even better!
Peter Thomas Roth Mask Set – I’ve had these masks for probably two years now, and they are still some of my favorites. The jars are a really good size. $75 ($218 value). This would make an awesome Mother’s Day present!
What’s on my Sephora sale wish list:
Sephora Favorites Sun Safety Kit – I’ve purchased this set in the past (the products change each year) and have always really enjoyed it. It’s a good way to try different high-end sunscreen formulas before spending a pretty penny on a full size. Disclaimer – some of the samples are small, but remember these are more expensive products to begin with.
Two reasons to consider this set:
- 1. Sephora will donate $25 from each sale of this kit to the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
- 2. It’s only $39 (value is $178) and you get a full size Dr. Dennis Gross product worth $42 alone!
Unseen Sunscreen by Super Goop – I’ve heard great things about this face sunscreen. It has SPF 40. Luckily, this is included in the set above, so I’ll probably try that sample size first!
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum – This is an expensive product, but I’ve heard so many people say they love it!
Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate – Another product I’ve heard amazing things about from a handful of my readers! I would probably want to pick either this one or the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair mentioned above as I think they are somewhat similar products.
Dr. Dennis Gross SpetrcaLite – If you saw my recent review on the Glo by reVive Light Therapy, you know I’m intrigued by light therapy, but am looking for something more efficient! This, however, is outside of my price range. A girl can dream!
Let me know of any questions – I love to talk skincare! Regardless of whether or not you are shopping this Sephora sale, bookmark this post to come back to next time you are looking for new products to try!
