What Works For Me: Fall Beauty Haul
Back in July, I showed you how I like to maximize my beauty purchase for my birthday by stocking up and cashing in my Sephora Beauty Insider points. That month, I also received a Sephora gift card and decided to save it for the next time I really needed (or wanted) a new product. Well, I ran out of moisturizer last week, so the time finally came to place another order, and this is what I received in the mail on Monday.
I actually ordered the Korres Wild Rose 24-Hour Moisturizing & Brightening Cream and a bottle of Ciaté Paint Pots Nail Polish in Oil Slick. I first tried the moisturizer as part of a beauty kit in July and it works well with my skin, so I stocked up on a full-size jar for the coming cooler weather. I also bought my first Ciaté color in July, too, and wanted to try Oil Slick, since it is the brand’s most popular color.
Along with the two products I ordered, I received Sephora’s regular three sample deal, which included two vials of perfume by Aquolina and Cartier, as well as a primer by Korres. And one of the weekly promotions was a deluxe sample of Prada’s new Candy Eau de Parfum, so I tried that, too. Sephora offers many promotions each week, and when I place an order, I make sure to check out all of the Weekly Specials and use the one I like best.
The Prada sample came in a precious little box, and I am saving that to add to my collection of lovely cosmetic packages.
This little haul cost me a tiny bit less than $35, which is the actual price of the moisturizer by itself. And now I’m set until Christmas, when I’ll shop for my loved ones and maybe for myself a little, too. I love Sephora’s values, and if you know how to use them, you can get lots of bang for your buck!
