Bobbi Brown + Kiehl’s Haul
May 1, 2012 § 8 Comments
Yes another haul… It seems like the malls just keep sucking me in. This time I headed to Holt Renfrew to spend the gift card I got from my last haul. I intended to get a Bobbi Brown’s Rich Lip Color SPF12, but apparently they are not available in Canada… WHAT?! So I ended up trying their corrector and creamy concealer kit. The concealer alone did not do much for me, but the combination of the two significantly reduced the dark circles I have! According to the SA, if you have pigmentations under your eyes (like me), concealer alone won’t do much since it has yellow undertone, and all it does is even out skin tone. The corrector, however, has an orange undertone, which will camouflage the brown/purple pigmentation in dark circles. I got the corrector in the shade Bisque ($22USD/$30CAD), and the creamy concealer kit in Warm Beige ($32USD/$44CAD).
The SA also was kind enough to give me a generous sample of the Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream! I have heard a lot of great things about this, so I am very excited to try it!
Next I went to Kiehl’s to check out their Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50, as suggested by NayDesires. I tried a bit of it on my hand, and loved how it feels! It’s very lightweight and very smooth. It has a slight sunscreen smell but not intolerable. I hope this works for me! Since I haven’t had much luck with sunscreen for face, and I am so done with looking like Rudolph (like I am right now)! The SA was also very nice, and gave me 4 sample packettes: Ultra Facial Cream, Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner, Abyssine Eye Cream+, and Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser. In a mere week I went from having no Kiehl’s products, to having a bunch of them to try out! This is so exciting!!
I apologize for the not-so-good lighting. I am currently not at my own place, so it’s kind of hard for me to find a place with good lighting!
