It's time for a little haul! This is the first time that I've ordered from Sephora Online. A few weeks ago I was really wanting to drive up to Sephora, but I knew that if I did that I would want to go to other stores as well and spend way more money that I should at both Sephora and the other stores, so I figured that ordering online was safer. I ended up purchasing 2 out of 5 items from my Sephora Online Shopping List post I did last month. Plus this way, I got some samples that I probably wouldn't have been able to get otherwise.
So let's get started with the samples that I picked out:
Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara - deluxe sample (free with any purchase of $25 or more - out of stock now)
Make Up Forever Smoky Extravagant Mascara - sample
Jack Black Protein Booster Skin Serum - sample
Ole Henriksen Perfect Truth CC Creme (light) - sample
This Honey Marc Jacobs perfume card was an extra that was packed on top:
And the 2 things that I ordered:
Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask - I used up a sample of this from my first visit to Sephora last year and finally purchased it.
Origins Brighter By Nature High-Potency Brightening Peel with Fruit Acids - I read all the reviews and the majority gave me the impression that this does work at lightening old acne marks, which is what I'm really looking for in my skincare right now.
Hopefully, between the 2 of these Origins products, I'll be able to get my skin closer to where I want it - little to no breakouts and clear up the left-over pigmentation marks.
I'm also pretty curious about the Jack Black Skin Serum to see if my skin likes that or not since it also claims to lessen pigmented spots. The Ole Henriksen CC cream also claims to fade dark spots over time, and if it covers nicely it could be a nice option to wearing foundation for quick makeup days (but quickly reading through some reviews...it might not work out for me). It will be fun to try out a couple of high-end mascaras, but hopefully I won't fall absolutely in love with them since I can't imagine paying high-end prices for something that only lasts a few months at most unless it's skincare that works.
Do you prefer to order from Sephora's website, or go to the store?
