Sephora Haul :)

A trip to the US usually leads to a Sephora pitstop (*ahem* plus pre-trip orders!). I wanted to share my purchases and finds. Once I have tried the new items I will post reviews as I work my way through 🙂



List of products and, where possible, links to Sephora product pages:

Sephora Favourites Beauty Oils Essentials $58, can’t find this, there were only two on the shelf in store…  – SORRY!

Josie Maran Matchmaker set in Light/Medium $68.

Laura Mercier Flawless Radiance Beauty insider gift – no longer available online – again, SORRY!

Kat Von D Ladybird Eyeshadow Pallete $36, no longer available online – similiar here – I managed to get this in store.

Ole Henriken skincare ranging from $8 Truth to Go face wipes to $45 skincare kits, available here – I am really liking this line at the moment.

Hope you enjoyed reading about what I got, and I would love to hear from anyone with Sephora recommendations – as shopping in their stores can be a little overwhelming-!

Olay Regenerist Luminous Skin Tone Perfecting Day Cream and Anti-Dark Circle Correcting Eye Treatment

Olay Regenerist Luminous Skin Tone Perfecting Day Cream 50ml, £29.99

New Olay Regenerist Luminous Skin Tone Perfecting Cream and Dark Circle Correcting Eye Swirl are the perfect regimen partners for luminous skin. Day after day, skin appears visibly energised and more even, while the look of dark spots and discolouration is reduced. Penetrates 10 layers, deep into the skin’s surface and renews it layer by layer to reveal more even, luminous pearl glowing skin. Apply morning and evening.” (

With continual use my complexion has brightened quite a lot over the last few weeks. I am so pleased with the results. My skin type is dry and uneven skin tone around my mouth, clog prone and sensitive. This cream has improved the tone considerably and hydrates well without being too thick. I use very little and never feel I have slick of cream on my face and at the same time this keeps my skin hydrated well all day. This is going on my repurchase list, as I have seen such great result.

There is one negative… This day cream does not have any SPF, so if I don’t have any SPF in my makeup I have to go over the cream with a light sunscreen like Neutrogena sheer touch, as it’s the only one that goes on well on top of other products whilst leaving a good base for makeup.

Olay Regenerist Luminous Anti-Dark Circle Correcting Eye Treatment 15ml, £29.99

“A distinctive dual-swirl gel and cream brightening formula to hydrate and reduce the appearance of dark circles. Apply morning and evening around the eye area after Skin Tone Perfecting Cream.” (

I have been using the Olay Regenerist line for years but this is the first time I have used a eye product as the price point is close to department store products, but now that I have tried this I know they are worth it. They absorb really quickly and brightened my undereye area within a few days of use! Also, my concealor goes on smoother ontop of this eye cream, so fab bonus. The only negative is the fussy packaging, as I travel the bottle is bulky for a eye cream and the lid has a tendency to pop off in transit… Other than that I would highly recommend for brightening dark circles!
