Mini Sephora & The Body Shop Haul

I'm running low with my eye cream and face wash, so of course, I had to stop by Sephora after work! It's really hard to walk out of there with only skin care products, but I managed to do just that (well, with an exception... you'll see).

1. Make Up For Ever Face & Body. This was the exception, but I only got a sample so I don't think it's that big of a deal. I've been wanting to try out this foundation for a while now, but instead of buying it I thought it'd be best if I gave it a try.

2. RareMinerals Active Triple Treatment Eye Cream. I bought this because I'm almost all out of my current one... This is my second tube!

3. Ole Henriksen African Red Tea Foaming Cleansers. This was a skincare challenge reward. There were plenty of others to choose from, but I really wasn't interested in anything else.

4. Korres White Tea Facial Cleanser. Like the eye cream, I'm a few usages away from finishing my face wash... This is also my second bottle.

Now onto The Body Shop!
Body Butter - Vitamin E. The Body Shop is having a 3 for $30 sale on some of their summer favorites. I didn't want to miss out on the deal since body butters are $20 a piece, so I went for it. I bought two for my mother-in-law and one for me since I already had some backups. I love this one in particular because it doesn't have an overpowering smell like their other body butters do.

Coconut Oil. The only products I ever use on my hair are shampoo and conditioner. That's it. I've tried using gel and hair styling sprays, but I don't feel comfortable with them. However, I've heard great things about this product, so I decided to give this a spin.

That's all for now.

Thanks for stopping by. Ciao!


  1. I'd love to hear what you think about the Ole Henriksen product, because I've been thinking of trying something from that line but haven't made the plunge yet. :)

    I really want to try more Korres products. I might have to add this one to my "to try" list since you are already almost on your second bottle!

    The Vitamin E products are lovely. I'm obsessed with the facial spray. It's especially nice on summer days. I have not seen that Coconut Oil here. I'll have to take a look when I go to Body Shop for my birthday freebie! :D

  2. I'd love to see a review of the cleansers. I have oily skin, but I have issues with cleansers that over dry.

  3. @Wendy I'm planning to try out the Ole Henriksen product after I finish my Korres cleanser (which is awesome btw! I really hope you like it if you end up giving it a try), so I'll be sure to update about it! =)

    I love the Vitamin E line! It's the only reason why I shop at The Body Shop. Let me know if you can't find the Coconut Oil; I'll be happy to send one your way!

    Happy Birthday, btw! I'm not exactly sure if it passed or not because I know you've been talking about it on your twitter, but Happy Birthday! =)

    @Lillian I have oily skin and the Korres cleanser works really well for me. I'll be sure to have a review of it sometime this weekend or early weekday.
