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 know…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,
