Well, it would appear that I shopped a bit last month! I was also lucky enough to be chosen for a Topbox Circle campaign for Vichy.
As I said, I was lucky enough to be chosen for a Vichy campaign from Topbox Circle toward the end of August. I was sent the Vichy Litactiv Retinol HA Concentrate, Vichy Liftactiv Supreme, as well as Vichy Litactiv Supreme Eyes. I have been using all the products for about a week now and haven’t had any adverse reactions so far. All the products seem to be absorbing fairly quickly into my skin and makeup has been sitting nicely overtop of them so far. The Retinol is the only one that says to use in the morning. I am liking that 2 out of the 3 are in squeeze tubes, the face cream is the only one that is in a pot. I also received a decently sized sample of the La Roche-Posey Hyalu B5 Serum to try out. I haven’t started using it as I didn’t want to add in to many new products at the same time.
As you probably already have heard, there was a bonus Sephora savings event on during the end of August. I had done really well, with only picking up a few replacements. I am almost out of a night time lip balm and liked the sample pot of the Laneige, so picked up that. I had almost run out of the eye makeup remover I had picked up and wasn’t the biggest fan of it, and I have used the Sephora brand one before and liked it. Since I was placing the order and was almost out of my Ordinary Glycolic Acid, I added that as well to the order. Than I was looking through the sale section, dangerous thing to do! I saw the Viseart palette in Amethyst…it was on sale for $40 and than I got another 20% off! I don’t have many purple shadows and this palette looked like a nice mix of cooler toned shades so I picked it up! When I had placed my orders there really wasn’t much in the sample section so I ended up picking up the same samples for both orders. I have heard good things about the Tarte Creaseless concealer but I couldn’t justify picking up another one so I grabbed the samples of that! I haven’t tried the Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation either so picked out 2 of those as well. Having the 2 samples of each there should be enough for me to form an opinion of them.
I don’t think I did to bad last month, I really only picked up 1 thing that wasn’t a replacement of some form. I have 2 other Viseart palettes and do enjoy using them, but I was missing a more mid-tone blending shade and this palette has one the ti think will be a good one. Did you pick up anything good last month? Or stick to only picking up replacement type products?
