Recently, Yves Rocher was having a summer sale, so I picked up a few things. I got this Sebo Specific Moisturizer. It's actually my second one and I haven't even opened the first one... eek. I guess I have high expectations of this product. I get super shiny forehead..so I'm hoping. The regular price was $27 and I payed $14.85.
The next item I got was this summer kit. It was regular $11.75 and I payed $6.33. The bag is canvassy and I have some kind of weird sensory issues with canvas lol. I don't like touching it. I also think at this point, I've amassed enough makeup bags. I can't think of anything else to use them for.
This is a teeny 3mL bottle of pastel pink nail polish. It's pretty much a pink you would see on a french manicure. Not really exciting to me, because it's so much work to do a french manicure. I actually prefer a french manicure that's less traditional (even though I love tradtional!)
Also inside was a 30mL sample of Almond Nourishing Moisturizer. The scent is very pretty. The texture is more of a liquidy cream.
The next sample is a 50mL bottle of Lilac scented shower gel. Pretty straight forward. Smells pretty.
The last item in the bag is this little sample of a 1 minute nourishing repair mask for dry hair. Super excited to try this one out. I'll hopefully get a couple uses of this one.
Next, I was suckered into buying this perfume because the packaging was so pretty and it was only $6 for 50mL (regular $18.) I guess I was expecting it to smell more floraly than it does..it's got a slightly spicier scent to it. Btw, I love that they are committed to preserving the planet. The cardboard is made from sustainably managed forests.
The scent is Enchanted Flower. I'm not sure what it's connection is to being a Christmas Flower as indicated by the "Fleur de Noel." There's nothing Christmas-y about the scent to me. However it says the botanical ingredients are essential oils of blood orange, lemon and mandarin, rose absolute. Ok, after having sprayed it the scent evaporates quickly...but when I rubbed the back of my hand on my neck it is a sweet pretty smell. Very subtle.
Next, is a 3mL nail polish in Red Berry Noel. I think these wee mini bottles are their regular size? Originally $2.95, I payed $2.00. I think it's a little overpriced.
I couldn't resist this Blue Sun eyeliner. It looked so pigmented in their pictures. I'm sorry, I haven't opened this yet! Now with summer quickly disappearing I don't know if I should! This was $4.95. It was regular price.
For some reason, I have an obsession with cylindrical containers. I have no idea why. I thought the packaging was so sleek and the pink was so pretty. The name is Comme Une Evidence. This smells SO incredibly pretty! It's definitely a perfumed body moisturizer. I wish I picked up 2 now because the bottle is only 50mL. It was originally $4 and I picked it up for $1.25!
Next, is this cuticle exfoliating treatment. I thought it was something different, worth a shot. I don't trim my cuticles..I push them back and sometimes they just look unsightly after. I'll let you know how this works. It was regular $12 and I payed $6.60.
The last item I purchased, I am a bit regretful of. This is regularly a $25 foundation and I payed $13.75. The bottle is 30mL. My regret is that I picked up Light Beige. This is a lesson learned NOT to pick your foundations online without ever having tested them! lol I was interested in it because it's supposed to be a matte finish.
This is the super liquidy foundation on my hand...SO dark!!
Here it is blended in. You can see my skin looks a lot darker...definitely not a look that I like. I really try to match my foundations to my skin tone, because I hate that fake makeup look. This may work for my sister or I'll keep it for a giveaway, since all I did was squirt some product out. :)
They always include these little sample packets.
They always let you select a free gift from about 3 options. I was really drawn to these colourful bowls. They're nothing exciting but good for storing leftovers in. I like that they stack.
When you spend a certain amount of money, you receive the Jardins Du Monde shower gel in Mexican Aloe Vera. It's a full size 250mL bottle that will last awhile. This has a really nice refreshing scent..and to my nose even a bit coconuty! One of these is in my giveaway below!
Lastly, after you spent $50, you receive a gift valued at $50. This company sure loves to pass on freebies! What I received was Desir de Nature perfumed shower gel, Velvety Cleansing Milk with 3 detoxifying teas and Pure Calmille toner lotion.I'm super happy to try out this toner. My Nivea just ran out and I wasn't happy with it anyways! I'm looking forward to try the cleansing milk as well!
There you have it! Because the deals were so great, I ended up placing a second order a couple days later...stay tuned for the contents of that one! Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
