Sephora is having a VIB 15% off sale this weekend starting Thurs. There are a few items I have been holding out for in anticipation for this sale:
1. Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil
2. REN Keep Young and Beautiful SH2C Serum
In a magazine article that was published a few months (I feel it might have been Allure, honestly can't remember), the article talked about the different signs of ageing that appear based on a person's ethnicity. The article indicated that Asian skin doesn't tend to wrinkle, rather it loses elasticity and volume. Since I am approaching my mid to late twenties soon, I am starting to use more anti-aging skin care products that are targeted towards my preventative needs. Based on my research, I have been looking for products that stimulate collagen growth. I've been researching serums that also contain Vitamin C, which helps with brightening the skin and treating dark spots. This REN serum also contains peptides, which boosts collagen production, so this seems like the perfect serum for me right now.
This year I plan to test alot of anti-oxidant serums and vitamin C serums, so I will keep posting my thoughts on good finds.
3. Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils
4. Dior Addict Lipstick
So many of the beauty blogs have put up reviews for the relaunch of the Dior Lipstick, but I have yet to purchase any, simply because I am overwhelmed by the selection of colors (somewhere around 56 shades). To make it even more difficult, the colors of the plastic testers are not good indicators of the actual color, so I spent quite some time at Sephora trying to determine which shade was which name, remembering which ones I liked based on the name or number, so I gave up. But I did find one color that I really like, Paris. It's a bright cool pink, very pretty for spring. I'll probably also pick up a nude as well (I would love to hear if anyone has any suggestions!).
For VIB members, the code for the 15% off, valid April 14 - 21 is "CHICWEEK". If you attend the opening party (Thurs from 6pm-9pm) the invitation indicates there will be a goody bag!
