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!

 

Skin Care Essentials Episode 6, Sunblock

As many of you know, I travel most of the time for work. Needless to say, those of us here at Mr. Jan All In One can get a little bit behind on our blog posts. Therefore, please accept my apologies for the delays in getting episodes 5 and 6 of Skin Care Essentials posted on the blog. So here we go with Episode number 6! This episode is all about selecting sunblock. Even though we are still in the dead of winter, our skin is exposed to dangerous UVA and UVB on a daily basis. Sunblock is not just for summer tanning, it is an important part of a well thought out skin care regiment. After watching the video, please comment on here on the blog or on my YouTube channel.
