I've acquired some new beauty products over the past month that I have been waiting to test. I wanted to give them a good run before I recommend them to you all!
I am sure that most of you all think that I am a freak given how often I try skin care products. Well, it's no secret that I am a skincare junkie, so of course I love trying new products. To be quite honest, I am always looking for the miracle product that just blows me away and I haven't found that in a long time.
I think the last time that a product really wowed me was when I used La Mer Gel Cream a couple of years ago, and even then it wasn't so amazing.
I loved Mario Badescu, but it was just a simple skin care line. It was nothing special, it just did its job. If you are looking for a very basic skin care line, I would highly recommend it, but you all know that I am always wanting something that will really work well.
Enter SK-II. I ordered some samples off of eBay a while back and was really floored at how different my skin felt after using their Facial Treatment Essence. It's an interesting concept as it is literally a water like consistency that you just splash on your face, but the results were amazing.
In true fashion, after trying the Facial Treatment Essence I ordered the Cellumination Serum EX which is amazing for fading sun spots and evening out your skin tone.
I returned to my favorite eBay seller last week to order their Facial Treatment Masks. These masks look really scary (as seen in the collage above), but boy do they work!
There are a lot of reports that several eBay sellers sell fake SK-II products, so please do your research before purchasing a sample. Check out the seller's feedback, location, and what others have said about the products.
Moving on ... I also have been dying to try Creed fragrances. They are really expensive for a fragrance, so I jumped on the opportunity to get a tester for nearly half than retail. I really like the Spring Flowers scent, although it kind of reminds me of the scent of hairspray? I can't quite place it- do any of you all use this scent?
The picture above of me with the sunglasses was taken yesterday when I was driving back from a work retreat. I absolutely HATE the sun in my face when I am driving. I wish there were a way to tint cars so dark that the sun wouldn't even come through the glass. I incessantly used the Peter Thomas Roth powder brush sunscreen that I bought last week, but I am not sure that it works very well as I still felt like I got some sun from driving.
