Sephora F&F and VIB Sale: Haul and Mini Reviews

Hey guys! Sephora just had their sale period and I had to buy some things! I made an online order for some online only products for the Friend and Family sale which was 20% off your entire order. I was lucky enough(and by lucky I mean I finally spent enough money) to make VIB status with that order, which basically means I spent $350 in a calendar year. Piece of cake for me seeing as I am a skincare junkie. Thennn the VIB sale came around which was ANOTHER 20% off your entire purchase so I picked up a few more things. Mostly skincare. Here's the haul!
First Aid Beauty Radiance Pads First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream Anthony Logistics Glycolic Facial Cleanser Clarins One Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm Review
The Skincare:
First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads: Glycolic and Lactic Acid pads used to exfoliate, tone and brighten. I don't know if they're record breaking so far, but I like them.
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream: Used it twice so far, and I love it. Makes my face super soft and this pesky eczema patches go away overnight.
Anthony Logistics for Men Glycolic Facial Cleanser: I got this little one as one of my 100 point perks when I did my F&F order and I loved it so much that I bought the full size one when VIB started. This comes highly recommended by Caroline Hirons so I was super excited to use it!
Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser: Another great 100 point perk as I've heard people rave about it. Haven't used it yet, I have other exfoliaters that I'm trying to finish first.
Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm: Another Caroline Hirons rec that I had already fell in love with, but her rec solidified this purchase. I've went through 5 samples of this before deciding that it is a must have. Currently waiting to use this until I finish my samples of the REN Purity No. 1 Cleansing Balm which is okay, but doesn't compare to the Clinique!
Tarte Power Couple Stila Holiday Essentials Hourglass Icon Lipstick Review
The Makeup:
Tarte "Power Couple": Contains Dollface blush and Park Avenue Princess bronzer. Been using this almost exclusively since my F&F order came in, it's a perfect pairing and Dollface is a great blush for a red lip day, which has been almost everyday these days.
Stila "Holiday Essentials" Kit: Stay All Day liner in black, Stay All Day liquid lipstick in Beso, both staples so I decided to get this as a backup. This also has a mini Kitten eyeshadow which I haven't had in my collection since I restarted it. I currently don't wear eyeshadow but it's nice to have if I decide to as it was one of my favorites.
Hourglass The Iconic Red lipstick mini: a bit of a silly purchase as this tiny thing was $10, but I have so many reds, I wanted to have a sample just to see if the expensive full size is worth it! Sephora actually isn't selling the full size of Icon yet, although they have a bunch of other pretty colors!
Sephora Favorites Fragrance Sampler Rollerball Review
The Fragrances:
Sephora Fragrance Sampler, Rollerball Edition: I get these every year. Last year I was introduced/ fell in love with Diesel Loverdose through these so I thought it was essential this year. Basically you get 5 samples to try and a certificate to go into sephora and get one of the rollerball in the scent you choose from those samples. I'm probably going to just get the Flowerbomb rollerball this year as none of the others wow'd me, but I'm definitely looking into getting some of the bigger samplers as well, which redeem for full size perfumes.
Coach "Poppy" mini: I got this as a 250 point perk. Haven't tried it yet, I'm thinking of adding it to a giveaway later one this month/early In December.
I also got some more samples on skincare and fragrances when I made my F&F purchase.
Looks like a small haul but I really didn't need much, and I also got some things as gifts that I don't want Erica to see! What have you guys purchased recently?


  1. why oh why is there not Sephora over here!! I can promise you that I would be on VIB status in a shot hahaha.. you picked up some fab things!! I love the look of the Tarte "power couple" and the Hourglass Lipstick!! I would love to know how you get along with it :) xx

  2. I got the hourglass Icon too!! I actually bought the whole thing which I'm actually kind of regretting, I'm not sure if it's worth it's ridiculous price tag!
