February Beauty Favorites

february_favorites1Even though I have a bunch of beauty products, it’s pretty rare that I wear something new everyday. In fact, it’s pretty much the opposite. I seem to like products in stages- I will be completely obsessed with one thing and it’s all I will use for awhile, and then I’ll move on to something else. It’s funny how something I was so into the day before just doesn’t quite work as well the next day. I’ve decided to start a series where I write about products I really loved for the month.

SiJCP Customized Skincare Set

skinset1Sephora has been releasing a lot of sampler kits under their Sephora Favorites line. They are pretty good values if you like a few of the items or want to try different products out. I’ve bought a few of the sets over the years (including their Give Me Some Lip set that I reviewed here) but one of my favorites is their custom skincare sampler. Every January, Sephora has a promo where you receive double Beauty Insider points on skincare purchases and around the same time, they release a SiJCP Customized Skincare Set. The set is exclusive to Sephora inside JC Penney, and it is an awesome deal. For only $29, you get to pick five deluxe skincare samples (and for the most part they are high-value samples).
