My favorite thing about Sephora is their incredible rewards program that they have for their customers. It’s unlike any other retailer, except for maybe Nordstrom, when it comes to rewards, private shopping events, store events, etc! That said, BIG DEAL ALERT! Usually, 2-3x points are centered around fragrance or skincare, so the fact that double points are being added for makeup is a huge deal.
I tested some new sweat-friendly products last week at my custom makeover appointment at Sephora Embarcadero, and I am so excited to share what I found out with you. If you’ve ever tried new skincare products with your makeup, you know that it can often be a struggle to find products that work well together, and don’t fight each other. I’ve had a crazy-busy few months, so my skin was starting to take a turn. My makeup artist Elisia recommended a brand new product at Sephora, a peel that totally changed the surface of my skin, and didn’t disturb my long-wear makeup routine: the Neogen Dermatology Bio Peel. I am OBSESSED, because it works, and it’s less than $30, which is insane for skincare! It’s a must have. She also prepped my eyes with the life-saving 24K Gold Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Hydra-Gel Eye Patches from Peter Thomas Roth. These are addicting, FYI. They de-puff, combat wrinkles, and kick your dark circles to the curb! The cheaper non-anti aging version is also equally awesome.
I also paired several of my go-to sweat-friendly makeup products together for a fun colorful look, and my skin held up perfectly. No streaking, no peeling, nothing. My makeup artist recommended these products for all types of skin as well, so if you’re not oily like me, you don’t need to worry. These products are truly transformational. In honor of this rewards campaign, I’m linking my top makeup products so you can have a starting place for discovering new products that seriously kick some major ass.
