Dry Skin Saviours: La Roche Posay

As you all know, I have very dry skin which means I'm always testing out new products that may make my skincare journey a little bit more comfortable. I decided since I'm always testing out new products that I'll be sharing the best of the best of them weekly with you all, so those of you struggling with dry skin like me know what really works.

If you have extremely dry skin like me, you know that the only thing that can soothe it is a thick, balm-like cream, which is what I found when I tried out the Lipikar Baume AP+ and the Nutritic Intense Riche creams from La Roche Posay.

Now, let's keep it short and sweet because I could rave about these products all day.

The Lipikar Baume AP+ is a must have when your skin is having bad flare ups of dryness and just generally freaking out. This cream is thick but comfortable; your skin doesn't feel like it's suffocating under it. It also soothes any itchiness which is so relieving.
The Nutritic Intense Riche tells you all you need to know just in the name. It's a very rich, intensely moisturizing cream that is basically a thick, balm-like consistency. I only like to use this one at night because it is very heavy feeling and you may look a bit shiny while it's on. You really know your skin is getting the nourishment it needs with this one.

I also needed to give a shoutout to my new holy grail, the Micellar Water for Sensitive Skin. When my skin is having a particular tough time or if I use a product that doesn't quite agree with my skin, I tend to get dryness, flaking and sensitivity on my eyelids, which obviously isn't a great mix with eyeshadow. This Micellar water is super gentle, while still r
emoving all my eye makeup, waterproof or not.

The Bottom Line: 
If you struggle with dry skin, definitely pick up these products from La Roche Posay. You will not be disappointed. I know this brand also makes products targetted towards mature skin, acne prone skin, etc. so even if you're not dry, take a look through their selection. I'm really loving these products.

L'Oreal Private Sale Haul!

 Hey everyone! A while back I had a chance to go to the L'Oreal Private Sale, which essentially is a huge invite-only warehouse sale that happens twice a year, including all brands under L'Oreal. I love these sales because 1) you can find amazing deals on products you love and 2) you can pick up products you've been curious to try for a discounted price.
Anyway, here's what I picked up!:
 L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows: It's no secret that I'm obsessed with the formula of these eyeshadows, so I always make a point to pick up a couple every private sale I attend. I picked up the shades:
-Pepsy Coral
-Endless Chocolat
-Goldmine
-Purple Obsession
 I also picked up the Dermablend Corrective Compact Cream, since I've been looking for a fuller coverage foundation lately that would suit my sensitive skin. I wanted to buy the liquid foundation but they didn't have one light enough for my skin tone at the sale, so I picked up the one in the compact instead.
 I also picked up the:
Urban Decay All-Nighter Setting Spray
L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Washable Self Tanner
Maybelline BabyLips Lip Gloss in 'Just A Glimmer'
Maybelline Fit Me Pressed Powder
Lancome L'Absolu Rouge in 'Rouge Carrousel'
Maybelline Colour Jolt in 'Orange Outburst'
 I also picked up some products from La Roche Posay that will hopefully cure the insane dryness my skin has been going though lately. I'm so excited to start using these!
I also picked up the big bottle of their Micellar Water for sensitive skin because it's holy grail status for me!

Hope you enjoyed seeing everything I picked up! I'm so excited to start playing around with everything!
