Sephora Birthday Gift 2019 – Drunk Elephant Kit Review

Sephora Beauty Insider Annual Birthday Gift 2019 - Drunk Elephant

Hello, hello!

I finally picked up my Sephora Beauty Insider annual birthday gift. There was a choice between a Kat Von D kit and the Drunk Elephant kit. Since I’ve head so much about how awesome the Drunk Elephant line is, I knew that I had to choose that one! [info in italics taken from the Sephora website]

Sephora Beauty Insider Annual Birthday Gift 2019 - Drunk Elephant

The kit contains two samples: Mini Protini™ Polypeptide Cream & Mini Beste™ No.9 Jelly Cleanser.

Let’s take a look at the Protini Polypeptide Moisturizer:

What it is:
A protein moisturizer that combines an unprecedented array and concentration of actives for improvement in the appearance of skin’s tone, texture, and firmness.
Solutions for:
– Loss of firmness and elasticity 
– Dryness 
– Dullness and uneven texture 
Protini’s proprietary formula delivers revived, younger-looking skin, almost from the first application. Lines, wrinkles, and signs of sun-damage appear reduced, while depleted skin feels strengthened and moisturized. 

This moisturizer is super lightweight, almost gel like in texture, and it sinks into my skin quickly, but at the same time it is very hydrating. It works well with my foundation and powder too. I really like this moisturizer, and I can see how long term use could be really beneficial.

Now onto the Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser:

An innovative jelly cleanser that removes all traces of makeup, excess oil, pollution, and any other grime from the day. Free of SLS, fragrance, and essential oils, Beste™ No. 9 is totally non-irritating, non-sensitizing, and appropriate for all skin. 
Solutions for:
– Oiliness
– Makeup removal 
If you want to know more…
With a unique blend of mild surfactants and makeup-dissolving emollients, this gentle formula rinses away without an ounce of residue, leaving skin clean and soft. 

This is such a great cleanser, very gentle and perfect for my sensitive skin. It removes makeup easily and doesn’t make my skin feel dry or irritated. I can see this cleanser working for every skin type.

Wednesday, April 4th – Yarok Feed Your Ends Leave-In Conditioner

Friday, April 6th – Sephora Beauty Insider Birthday Gifts 2018

My birthday was on Friday, and most of the day involved me being curled on the couch with a blanket, my Ipad, Kindle and Netflix. I got hit with a terrible chest cold, so instead of going out for a birthday meal as originally planned, we ended up getting sushi to go from my fave little place.

All of the birthday wishes on various social media channels helped lift my spirits, so thank you!

We were supposed to go to Mr. A’s family’s place for a birthday brunch, but decided to postpone as I was still quite ill, and did not want to risk infecting them. So we will be celebrating with them next weekend instead. Surely by then I’ll no longer feel like death warmed over!

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤

Sephora Beauty Insider Birthday Gift 2017

Hello, hello!

So as you all probably know Sephora has a Beauty Insider program and one of the perks is that you get a little gift on your birthday. There was a choice between a mini makeup set from Tarte, or a skincare set from Caudalie. I chose the Tarte set.

In it you have a mini Amazonian Clay Blush in the shade Paaarty (the mini is 1.5g / 0.05oz, and a full size blush is 5.6g / 0.20oz) and a mini Tarteist Lip Paint in the shade Birthday Suit (mini is 1ml / 0.034oz, full size is 6lm / 0.20oz).

I love the Amazonian Clay Blushes as they are highly pigmented, and long wearing. The shade works perfectly on my for a very natural flush.

The Tarteist Lip Paint is very comfortable on my lips, but personally I think that the shade is a little too pale nude on me. It swatches much darker on my arm then it does on my lips. I prefer more pink toned nude shades for me.

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤
