I'm going to be honest, I'm not a Charcoal fan that much. Not that I hate it, I just haven't seen as many benefits from it in order for me to really love Charcoal products. However, I love Exuviance. So when I got to use the Detox Mud Treatment (mask) I was happy to give it a whirl.
I've had the pleasure of getting to use a new serum from a company that I hadn't been acquainted with yet. It's called the First Light Serum and it's from Ceramiracle. This product opportunity came about at a time when I was in desperate need of intense hydration for my very very dehydrated and dry skin. I've went through that whole problem/issue in my Stressed Skin Go To's post.
Alright everyone, it's that time of year. Sephora Friends and Family event starts TOMORROW on the 3rd. I have a previous post where I really go in depth, which I will link here, of what I think would be great buys or what I personally would get. This is going to be a quick top 10 post though of things I would get, taking into consideration what is new and what is going to be the best deal. Of course skincare comes first for me andddddddd.....there's something special for you guys as well.
Ok guys, I finally got the Jaclyn Hill palette.....yes I know, bit late to the game there Erin. I got it because, if you don't know, some of Morphe products are sold in store and online at Ulta Beauty. So the reason that I don't have Morphe palettes in my collection aside from the Kathleen Lights and Morphe collab is because the shipping was ridiculous. Like forget the 10% code Morphe, give me a free shipping code and I'm cool with it. Not to mention a regular palette costs around $23 I think, Jaclyn Hill's palette costs $38. So add in roughly about $12 in shipping, which I find weird because you can buy a whole crap load of brushes and ship it USPS for $4 but buy a palette and it's like $12 and FedEx. Not sure if you think FedEx is safer because they nearly broke the glass on my door from throwing a package so hard against it.....but I digress.
For a while I've had the opportunity to observe the effects of Curel's Ultra Healing Intensive Lotion. My mother has very thin and aging skin, it breaks easily and is dry constantly. She's always used lotions multiple times a day for as long as I can remember. For the last month she's been using the Curel Ultra Healing Intensive Lotion that they sent me. It's made a vast improvement in her skin all over but especially her hands and arms.
Anastasia is always surprising us with launches out of nowhere. It's part of the reason I love them so much. For the holidays they released several things but one of those being PRISM palette. I seen it and fell in love with it because I just thought it was so different. It's been an interesting journey so far, this is going to be long.
The time is upon us. Sephora's Friends and Family event is only days away if you happen to be buds with an associate, otherwise it's in mid November. I waited till last minute just so I could get an idea of what sets are going to be the best and what looks interesting. This will also be in parts: skincare and makeup, and then the things I'm interested in. Let's get started.
For the last few weeks I've been playing with the Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Palette doing several looks with it. This is a gorgeous palette, when you open it it's absolutely stunning. It came out the same time as the Natasha Denona Lila Palette with a similar purple theme. I opted for this instead of the ND palette because to be honest I never reach for the Sunset Palette that I have so I wasn't going to drop that much money on a palette again. That being said, this one is not cheap either. It comes in at $65 for 15 shadows and one pressed glitter.
It's been a while since I've done a roundup of my favorite beauty products. So why don't I just do one then. I have quite a long list. I may break it into two posts. One for skin and one for makeup. That way it won't be crazy long and I can talk about the products more.
So this is going to be the Skincare Favorites of right now. I'm hard on skincare, I'm extremely picky on what products I "like/love" because I test so many. I'm constantly rotating stuff so you have to MAKE ME want to use you. Either by results, the feel, or sensory bliss like smell etc etc.
I'm happy to discuss with you some more products from Kenra that are available now at Ulta.
I've discussed the Snail Cream in another post. Mainly the Cavier products and Snail Cream are great for strengthening hair, helping with aging hair, helpful for thinning hair because of the protein it provides. So if you need products to get your hair healthy, I have no problem recommending those.
Some info on that:
"KENRA PLATINUM SNAIL COLLECTION:
The fastest growing anti-aging Korean beauty secret, Snail Essence, can now be applied to hair. The NEW Kenra Platinum Snail Anti-Aging Collection is the 1st professional hair care product infused with Snail Essence, a highly concentrated blend of proteins proven to awaken the youth in hair. This luxurious 10-in-1 corrective creme weightlessly restores and prolongs youth by fighting all 10 signs of aging hair:
8. Scalp irritation

I've always been a fan of their Heat Protectant sprays, it's on of the first ones I used. The heat block spray has been crucial to curling my hair and keeping it as healthy and undamaged as I can.
Their info on the Heat Block Spray:
