Sephora’s Beauty Insider rewards program is free to join and comes with the awesome perk of receiving a beauty gift during your birthday month. This year, members got to choose between a skincare set by Caudalie and a makeup set by Tarte (there is also a men’s skincare kit, only available online)
Happy Monday! Today I wanted to share with you the next item from my complimentary Influenster VoxBox, the Eva NYC Freshen Up Dry Shampoo. Eva NYC is a haircare brand started in Brooklyn in 2012. In addition to soaps and styling products, they sell a line of beautifully designed styling tools. I had actually heard of it only a couple months ago when I started seeing their products pop up in my local Costco store (that’s when you know you’ve made it to the big leagues!)
I have tried a fair amount of dry shampoos but always seem to run into the same problems:
White/chalky residue (especially annoying on my dark hair)
Doesn’t make hair less greasy (in other words, it doesn’t actually do what it’s supposed to do)
A couple weeks ago I was lucky to receive a complimentary box of samples from Influenster, a site that partners brands with consumers to try out and review their products. The samples can range from anything from cosmetics to household cleaning products to food. If you love trying new things and writing reviews, be sure to get signed up!
Throughout this week I will be doing a series of short reviews on the products I received from the Poppy Voxbox, a combination of skincare, makeup, and cleaning products. I had a lot of fun testing this stuff out this week and can’t wait for my next box!
When NARS first announced their Soft Matte Complete Concealer, I was initially only half excited: Excited for the “complete coverage” part, but not so jazzed about the “matte” part. My skin tends to lean on the drier side, so matte products usually make those pesky dry patches emerge out of their hiding place.
But, because I’m a sucker for NARS products, i decided to give this one a try anyway and headed to get some samples.
Sales on beauty products, specially entire lines of beauty products, are a rare bird in the wild. Over the weekend Macy’s was having a huge sale with a 15% discount on almost all the cosmetics they carried (Chanel was the only exclusion). This sale has now been extended through today (to midnight PST)
Although I shop at Macy’s from time to time, I really am partial to Nordstrom for their convenient free shipping and return policies. Luckily, Nordys is doing price matching for any product they carry included in the Macy’s sale!
I rounded up a list of products that I’ve mentioned on this blog and use regularly. If you were considering any of them, definitely take advantage and get them in this sale:
Philosophy may be in a contest with themselves to have the longest product names ever (Purity Made Simple Facial Cleansing Gel & Eye Makeup Remover, Renewed Hope in a Jar Overnight Recharging & Refining Moisturizer, etc, etc). Combined with their package design that incorporates usage instructions and inspirational sayings, there’s just a lot of reading involved when it comes to this brand.
