Skincare From Sephora

So last week I received an email from Sephora notifying me of a special "reward" for beauty insiders only: purchase any skincare item and redeem 100 beauty insider points to get a high-performance moisturizer. I was running out of my favorite eye cream any way so I decided to take advantage of this offer (of course!) since I have about 800 points saved up. Here's what I got:

Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm. I'm a big fan of this cream. I had tried about 4 different eye creams in the past but they didn't do much for me. According to the woman I spoke with at Sephora, this is the Mother of all eye creams. Well count me in! She wasn't lying. It's super-hydrating, very light-weight and has lightened up my annoying dark under-eye circles, tightened the skin around my eyes and minimized my fine lines like no other eye cream I've used in the past. I've been using it for about 3 months and am very happy with the results, which is why I'm already on my second jar!
Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation. I love this moisturizer! It's so creamy and and light. I've only been using it for about 5 days and my skin feels really soft and nourished. The only thing I don't like about Sheer Transformation is that it has no SPF in it : (. I'm definitely going to purchase this again although I'll probably use it at night and use a moisturizer with sun protection during the day.

What kinds of creams and moisturizers do you use? Let me know in the comment section below. I love to hear about which skincare products people are using and why : ).

Happy weekend everyone! Sorry I've been a little M.I.A. this week. I had a little medical procedure/test done at the hospital (everything is fine and clear!) which took a lot of energy out of me but I'll be back next week with more posts!

Have a fantastic weekend and don't forget to enter my Chelsea Crew Booties Giveaway from NET A LA MODE here!

Thanks for reading!

I thoroughly enjoyed Ole H when I used it a while back, I had found it in a random shop out of town and never even thought to look for it in Sephora, go me! I'm intrigued about this eye cream, a girl can never overlook peepers!

Happy Friday.

Philosophy's Hope in a Jar is a fantastic face cream. It doesn't have spf either, but it's still completely worth it.

Glad to hear you're okay!! I am loving my Paula's choice & LancĂ´me 3x, but also just tried (and love) La Roche Posay.

nice deals on those creams, Marie!
I like using a hydrating mist in my face routines, currently using one by Philosophy. It definitely helps during these winter months!

I use Clinique eye cream, but not so often. ;) It's more random.

There's no Sephora in UK, but when I move back home to Poland I think I'm gonna be a VERY frequent customer. ;) X
