Have you ever gone shopping and then realize what a mess you just created? Yup, that's me right now. This year, I went all out during the Sephora VIB sale and I'm not just saying that! I kind of surprised myself because I haven't exactly been using as many beauty products as I once was. Nevertheless, I bought a lot more than I thought I would! Without further adieu, I present to you... my massive Sephora VIB haul!
The Sephora Beauty Insider Sale is one of their biggest events of the year! You can receive discounts up to 20% off depending on your Beauty Insider tier. Sephora hardly ever has sales so use this time to stock up or try new products at the discounted price. If you're already over summer and wishing for fall, then head over to Sephora since they have their new season products out! If you haven't heard about the sale yet, read on to see how you can join in because starting August 24th (yup, today), everything at Sephora will be available at a discounted price if you're a Beauty Insider.
Ever since Earth Day, I've been looking at cleaning up my beauty routine and integrating more natural and sustainable products. It's been a bit difficult as I had no idea where to start. Skincare? Haircare? Start small with body wash or soap?! Luckily, Sweet Oak has a great subscription box that gives you 4-5 full sized items that are all-natural and all-Canadian!
Another year, another sale! Twice a year, Sephora holds a sale for their Beauty Insider rewards program members. The last VIB sale was five months ago but it feels so much closer than that! Although I love the winter VIB sale because you can get Christmas gifts on a budget, I'm excited for the spring Sephora VIB Sale 2018. The sale this time of the year includes tons of newness that I'm dying to try!
I love sheet masks! I try to incorporate one at least once a week because my skin just drinks it up now that it's getting colder. Only recently have I been incorporating more K-Beauty into my skincare routine, branching out with more brands and products. When I first saw the gift set for sale, I knew I had to have it! Tarot of Masks features six different cotton or microfiber sheet masks and one rubberized mask.
With countless brands and products on the market claiming to turn back the clock on your skin, anti-ageing products can be difficult to navigate. Retinol is a key skincare ingredient in many anti-ageing skincare products and has become very common. Although prevention is key when it comes to youthful skin, using products specifically for ageing skin can help.
Mascara is a major part of my makeup routine. It was the first makeup product I ever purchased and over the years, I've just grown more and more interested in all of the different kinds and variations. From different brands, brushes and formulations, I've tried many! I've always loved voluminous lashes and most of my favourite mascaras give great volume in addition to length. When I'm having a good lash day, I know I'm going to have a great day ahead! I got to try the new Givenchy Noir Interdit mascara for a few weeks, keep reading and get to know what I thought about the $38 mascara!
Since taking baby steps toward a cleaner, healthier lifestyle, I've been choosing different products and making more conscious choices. But, do you ever wonder just how clean some products are? Thanks to Think Dirty, you don't have to use much brain power! Think Dirty is an app that helps consumers make clean beauty choices. Based on a scale of 0-10, products are rated on the carcinogenity, developmental and reproductive toxicity, allergenicity and immunotoxicity of the ingredients. The lower the score, the cleaner the product. You can scan your current products or view the extensive database that's growing every day.
This month, I have a ton more products to let you guys know about! For this month's June 2017 Empties post, I've been adding more products that I've finished (not just skincare or makeup based!). This summer, I've been working on more skincare since it's so important! Essentially the canvas, your face is fairly important when it comes to creating a great makeup look. As a surprise this month, my fiancé thought to join me with his empties as well! This June 2017 empties post is my first his and hers empties... Watch out, cause this post is long!
