Sephora Beauty Insider Birthday Gift 2020 – Briogeo Revive & Repair Duo Review

Briogeo Revive & Repair Duo

Hello, hello!

Briogeo Revive & Repair Duo

Although my birthday was in early April, I only received my Sephora Annual Birthday Gift in May – there were a choice of a few mini sets, and I chose the Briogeo Mini Charcoal + Coconut Oil Shampoo and Mini Deep Conditioning Mask. [info in italics taken from the Sephora website]

Briogeo Revive & Repair Duo

Great hair starts with this bestselling duo! Detoxify your scalp and deep cleanse with Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo. Restore and strengthen dry, damaged hair with Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask, revealing healthy-looking and shiny locks.

I’ve previously tried the Don’t Despair Repair Deep Conditioning Mask and loved it, so I won’t review it today. I’ll just focus on the Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo.

Briogeo Revive & Repair Duo

This unique shampoo infuses binchotan charcoal to draw impurities from the scalp and hair follicle, providing the foundation for optimal scalp health. Vegetable-derived micro-exfoliators remove dead skin cells and product buildup to support a clean, balanced, and healthy scalp, as a cooling blend of peppermint and spearmint oils reduces scalp itchiness. Tea tree oil features anti-septic and healing properties to reduce scalp irritation, while coconut oil delivers superior moisturization to the scalp to combat and prevent dryness and flakiness. Super-vitamin panthenol provides essential nutrients to strengthen the hair roots and shaft.

This is a mega-minty shampoo treatment. My scalp felt tingly and soothed, and super clean. The mini jar contains enough for me to get three or four uses (depending on how much I use each time). I could see myself buying this and using it as a scalp detox treatment twice a month.

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.

Sephora Beauty Insider Annual Birthday Gift 2019 - Drunk Elephant

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.
