While my tubby tabby was holding down the fort on MBB this afternoon (thank gawd he can type!), I partook of something near and dear to beauty addicts everywhere: retail therapy!
I swung by Sephora to do some therapeutic window shopping and to return a few things. I didn’t expect this, though — when I got to the checkout counter, the cashier told me about something called the Sephora Skincare Challenge. Have you heard about this?
They’re running a rewards program through the end of the year where if you buy four full-size skin care products, they’ll give you another one free! The best part? You don’t even have to buy all four at the same time. If you’re a Sephora Beauty Insider (a free membership, like Borders Rewards), they’ll keep track of your purchases and let you know at the register when you qualify for a freebie.
They let you choose from a few different products. I went with the 6.7oz Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash (a $22 value), which I mostly picked because I think the bottle’s cute (be still my beating heart — is that Helvetica Neue Ultra Light!?).
It’s for exfoliating and cleansing and contains rose hips, chamomile and passion flower, among other less pronounceable things…
As soon as I got home I gave it a try, and you know what? It’s not bad! It’s got a light beachy scent, and the little exfoliating scrubbies feel great. I think it’s a solid cleanser, too (hope it doesn’t break me out!). It made my face feel clean after I used it but not tight.
Washing with it I got to thinking about skin care routines and how I don’t really have a rigorous long-term one. There are one or two products I’ve been using for years, like Philosophy Purity Made Simple, but I do try other cleansers, makeup removers and lotions all the time.
How about you? How adventurous are you with your skin care routine? Lemme knowâ€¦We can swap tips and recommendations in the comments.
Sorry I haven’t really been myself lately, but I guess it just happens sometimes… I think I’m starting to feel like my old self again.
Miss you. I hope you’re having a good week.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
