Sephora Haul – Josie Maran / Fresh

One of my favorite things to do is online shopping. What a surprise! Since I spend 90% of my time traveling for work and staying at hotels. This must be the contributor of this bad behavior.  Sephora.com is my usual first place to go and here are the reasons why:

1. I love their online skin consultation tools. It’s easy to use with great explanations on how the products work with key ingredients.
2. Weekly special for different brands or collections, plus free shipping over $50 purchase (that shouldn’t bet a problem right?)
3. With every order you can always picks 3 samples.

So a few weeks back, Sephora.com offered a VIB GWP with deluxe sample, and I ordered the Josie Maran Argan Skincare Ritual  (travel set) and Fresh Sugar Lip Serum Advanced Therapy. I have become a big fan of Josie Maran for about a year now. I started with the Argan Oil and I totally love it because it offers hydration and keep my skin feel and look healthier while I am traveling. The travel kit contains

I have been looking for a perfect lip treatment. For some reason, I have a hard time finding one that will change my lip condition “dryness”. Trust me, I have tried super luxury brands to drug store and still have not found one. Fresh launch a new lip treatment  Sugar Lip Serum Advanced Therapy 0.3oz $35.00
This lip serum contains Acmella flower extract which is known to reduce lines and wrinkles. Kigelia Africana fruit extract helps to improve elasticity and Sugar helps to moisturize and smooth the skin. I like this lip serum and it doesn’t have a scent and is super lightweight so I plan to use it under my lip treatment and hopefully it will work out for me.

This time, I picked  Caudale overnight  recovery oil , Fresh Life fragrance  and Hourglass veil mineral primer. For some reason, I didn’t get the hourglass sample but they sent me Givenchy Mister Light. I love these deluxe samples because you can really try the products before you purchase the full size. Heaven!! And one more thing, the cosmetics bag is also very useful!

 

Fresh Black Tea Collection

More and more western skin care brands are using Asian remedy as new ingredients. Fresh recently launch a new collection “Black Tea”. I purchased the Age Delay Eye Concentrate and Instant Perfecting Mask . Here are my thoughts on these products.

Instant Perfecting Mask
When you first open the bottle you’d think you need to apply a very dense cream, but it turn out to be a very cooling and light weight  mask. The mask provides a hydration to the skin, but I would recommend you apply very thick layer to seal the skin better without it quickly drying out (see picture below for reference). The mask also make your skin feel cooling and tickle a little.

TIP: Any time I use any mask I always  apply eye cream around my eye first. The reason is that the mask will pull your skin down and most the mask will tell you avoid eye area ! Therefore apply eye cream before the mask to create a barrier so the mask not pull my eye area. After rise the mask off my face still feel tickling I would say this mask is perfect for hot summer day.

Age Delay Eye Concentrate
I used it for few days and I didn’t see any difference. It hydrates the eye area but I didn’t feel any firming. So I feel this is more for preventatives. I know most the skin care ask you to use for 30 days or longer to see a results, but be honest I have tried some skin care products and you can see results with in 3 days. Also, I didn’t smell the Tea scent in both the mask and eye cream which was a disappointment. I wish I can smell the tea scent . I listed all the products from Black tea collection with a brief info from their company website for your reference .

“Tea is the world’s most ancient remedy. It was discovered thousands of years ago in China, whose people cultivated its use as a medicine, as a ritual, as an art form. Tea has a rich history and an even deeper meaning for us because of our Russian heritage, as it is an enormous part of our own culture.”   —Lev & Alina, Fresh Founders
