Beauty | Sephora 2017 Birthday Gift & Reward

08:18 Jayyangg 0 Comments


Every year Sephora gives out deluxe samples to its members on the month of their birthday! The options this year were 1. Tart mini blush + lip gloss or 2. Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet + Serum. I picked the Caudalie skin care set mainly because of the beautiful pink packaging haha! Also, I redeemed a 100 points gift - Beauty Blender solid cleanser which was a very reasonable size!

100 points gift - 0.558 OZ
Full Size - 1 OZ, $22


Delux Sample Size: 0.33 FL OZ/ 10mL 
Full Size: 1.3 FL OZ/ 40ML

According to Sephora: 
  • The cream is good for all skin types whether you're oily or dry. 
  • It targets:
    • Dryness
    • Dullness and uneven texture
    • Fine lines and wrinkles. 
  • About: This cult classic gel-cream deeply hydrates, soothes, and softens all skin types—even the hypersensitive ones. Powered by Caudalie's organic grape water and patented grape-seed polyphenols, this cream not only provides hydration, but it also protects the skin from free-radicals, which causes wrinkles. This formula is rich in Vinolevure® to strengthen skin to become less sensitive and more resilient over time.  
  • What it is formulated WITHOUT: 
    • Parabens 
    • Sulfates 
    • Phthalates
The cream itself is a gel formulation that comes out thick and looking like rice pudding! But once blended it's very hydrating and light on the skin. There's a very subtle smell of fragrance but it's barely noticeable. The gel texture is easily absorbed into my combination dry-oily skin and I can definitely see why this is great for all skin types. Once absorbed, my skin felt very plump, hydrated but didn't feel greasy. I can see myself using this cream once summer comes and my skin gets a bit more oily!



Sample Size: 0.33FL OZ/ 10mL
Full Size: 1 FL OZ/ 30mL - $57

Sephora claims:
  • Solutions for:
    • Dryness 
    • Dullness and uneven texture  
    • Uneven skintone 
  • If you want to know more…This high potency serum will save dehydrated, dull skin. Powered by Caudalie's exclusive organic grape water, the formula immediately reactivates the skin’s ability to retain moisture over time. Rich in Caudalie's patented grape-seed polyphenols which provide antioxidant protection against UV rays and free radicals—a main cause of wrinkles—it is gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin. It’s also the ideal base for a moisturizer, allowing quick penetration to leave skin instantly refreshed, hydrated, and comfortably soft. 
  • What it is formulated WITHOUT:  
    • Parabens 
    • Sulfates 
    • Phthalates
The serum comes in clear glass packaging and with a dropper that makes it easy to pick up very little product. The texture is light and comes out milky and a bit tacky when I first put it on my skin but absorbs after a few seconds. My hands felt hydrated and comfortably soft like the product description. Similar to the sorbet, it has a little bit of fragrance but very light and refreshing. I've read many good reviews on the product about brightening and hydrating skin so I look forwards to using this product! 



Love,
Jay
