Sephora Birthday Gift 2017

Sephora-Birthday-Gift-2017-031

 

Hi babes!! I’m reviewing my Sephora birthday gift. This year you had the choice between a Tarte sample set; that brought a small blush and a lip paint mini. I already had those so I went with the Claudalie set. It came with the Vinoperfect radiance serum and the Vinosource moisturizing sorbet cream.

The serum is an anti-dark spot serum. Not only does it help lighten dark spots but it also helps with preventing them. It also helps boost radiance and even out skin tone. It’s an oil free product that is ideal for all skin types. In order to see results you should at least try this product for a minimum of 3 months.

It has definitely helped with my dark spots and has made my skin more radiant. I have that inner glow like when I was pregnant with my little ones. The bottle design was great for easy application. You put it on after you tone and before you moisturize; day and night. Like any product use as directed to get the desired results. If you’re looking to perfect your complexion then I recommend this hands down.

The cream melts right into your skin without leaving a residue. Its lightweight and leaves your skin feeling refreshed and hydrated.Β Thanks to its “quick break” lipophilic technology, this cream to gel moisturizer will go onto the skin as a cream & finish as a gel on contact, creating a patch of moisture to help soothe, hydrate and strengthen the skin.

My skin said “thank you”, because it felt to hydrated ever time I used it. My skin felt supple. It is indeed a lightweight cream, so, I felt very comfortable day or night. My skin was the perfect canvas during the day. I didn’t have to use a primer prior to my makeup application. You only need to use a pea size amount and you’re good to go. If you are looking to use less product on your face when you put on makeup then I recommend this product, other wise I’ll say you can do with out.

I always end up loving my birthday gift from Sephora. I recommend becoming a rewards members. You end up getting goodies just like this one. The serum is a must try; and the cream is something that I leave up to you. Treat yourselves from time to time and till next time lovelies!! xoxo

Even better?

CLQ00010

 

Hi lovelies! I am going to be talking about this beauty staple that I have been using for the past year. It’s Clinique even better dark spot corrector and optimizer.Β Lets first go over what this baby is. First off this is a serum, so you can include it to whatever beauty regimen you have going with no worries. The claims are that it can visibly improve dark spots up to 58% Β in a 12 week period. To be honest I didn’t bother to track the amount of weeks I have been using it before I started seeing results. I know I just started getting compliments on my skin tone 2 weeks into the regimen. I am on a 3 step beauty regimen but I am not using any other Clinique products. I am using Ole Henrikson and I just added this into it. I just do 1 pump which is enough for your who;e face, a little goes a long way. I put it on after my toner and before my moisturizer. As far as the claims I would back them because I noticed results immediately.

Even Better Clinical Serum is proven to help reverse the appearance of dark spots and blemish marks starting at 4 weeks. In 1 week, see a visibly brighter complexion. Soothing Optimizer keeps skin calm, helping it better resist future darkening. Both are dispensed from a dual-chamber bottle that separates each serum, preserving the purity and potency of the ingredients until right before application. I am the kind of person that when I try something I commit to it all the way, unless I have some type of adverse reaction. I got this bottle in November of 2016 and it just finished. Almost a whole year I have been using it and for $52 I would say it is totally worth the money.

I decided to use this to even out my skin tone because I don’t get much sun on my face. I wanted a more radiant glow. I have a few dark spots due to pregnancy. I figured I would give this a try. Now I am hooked and I am planning buying another one. Some of the key ingredients are,Β Vitamin C to help reduce the appearance of discoloration; advanced Brightening Yeast Blend to break up the appearance of dark spots; and encapsulated Salicylic Acid and Acetyl Glucosamine to exfoliate skin, speed departure of surface discolorations and enhance cell turnover. Optimizer features our Gyokuro Extract, a specially harvested Japanese green tea extract rich in antioxidants and anti-irritant properties.

If you are like me and want to achieve a more flawless natural look I would definitely fork out that cash to but this. I recommend this to anyone, unless something better comes along. Remember to always use as directed, till next time loves. xoxo
