Sephora Haul

I could spend hours in a Sephora store..wait, let me re-phrase..I HAVE spent hours in a Sephora store. I am mesmerized by the rows of lip gloss, mascaras, skin care products - so much to try yet limited amount of money. Lately, my focus has been searching for the ideal skin care products. Being in my *ahem* 30's I really need to make sure I am taking the best care of my face to avoid wrinkles, sun spots and whatever else genetics and mother nature throw my way. The skin concerns I have been dealing with is just tired, dull looking skin, hyper-pigmentation and a few scars.
After reading a blog post about Peter Thomas Roth Max Correcting Pads, I decied to log into my beloved Sephora to check out the product and read some reviews myself. The PTR pads received rave reviews, so why not? I have nothing to lose at this point. While I was browsing online, I dropped a few other things in my cart as well.

I did start using the PTR face pads a couple nights ago. So far, so good... if you buy these make sure you cut the pads in half. I read that tip online and using 1/2 a pad is plenty for your face. The pros are that it smells good, and you can definitely feel it working. How, you ask? Because it burns like hell which to some would be a con. However, as my friend Amber says "I like when (a product) feels like it's peeling my skin off because that's how you know it's working"  I have to say, I noticed a slight difference in skin tone the next morning - my face felt smoother, pores were less crater-like. I'm anxious to use this for a while longer to see what it does.

I am already addicted to Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer, so when I was looking for a new primer this seemed like the obvious choice. So far, I LOVE it! It does give your face a 'radiant' glow.

 As I mentioned in a previous post, we are going to France soon! I'm so excited, so naturally I have a love for anything French. This perfume by Clean is no exception. Clean Provence smells so lovely, I can't even describe the scent - clean (of course) with a sweet candy-ish or citrusy hint to it.

I love Josie Maran's line. I think her products are a reflection of her; natural and beautiful. In my opinion, this is the best argan oil out there. I tried the Moroccan oil, but the smell really gets to me. I use the JM argan oil on my face, hair, hands, places that tend to get dry such as knees or elbows.

 The Clarins product was a sample I received with my purchase, and so far I am pleasantly surprised. The cleanser has a orange scent, and the exfoliating beads aren't too harsh on your skin.
