Okay guys, as asked by many of you about what I bought from the spring Sephora sale and promotions, I have the roundup of my haul below. I have purchased some new products and some products are repurchases. I usually stock up on my favorite body care products and then I have my skincare favorites. For most of the other things, I have been avoiding to buy keeping in mind the number of products I have been testing and do not want to have their shelf life over before I get to use them. Few products I ordered last week during the Sephora VIB Rouge exclusive days and they reached me last Monday. Other things I went to the store to pick up. I have divided the post into four sections and due to the nature of the last minute post request, I have tried to click the pictures as clear as I could.

My Sephora Haul - April 2018

Skincare

For skincare, I am very choosy in my cleansers and have been wanting to try something specifically for my congestion and hormonal acne that flares up few times in a month and leaves those marks for many more months to come. I have used Kate Somerville Exfolikate cleanser and now bought the Kate Somerville Eradikate Cleanser along with the Kate Somerville Eradikate Solution. I opened these both products last week the same day I got it, I have been using them every day and like them both. I will review them in detail in my upcoming posts. Another cleanser I was eyeing since last few months was from La Mer, I bought the La Mer Cleansing Foam for the summers and I have high hopes for it. Perricone Md Nutritive cleanser is a repurchase, I really like it, never dries me out but makes my skin clean and fresh. Another product from Perricone Md I bought is the Perricone Md Chloro Plasma, it is everything you need for detoxifying, cleansing, anti-aging, and what not. I will keep you guys posted on how I like it. Tatcha Lip balm was also on the wishlist for a long time, finally splurged.

Bodycare

For Bodycare, there are mostly the repurchases. Loccitane has been my go-to brand for the body products for many years. I purchased my backups for Loccitane Shower Oil with Almond Oil, Loccitane Lavender Shower Gel, Verbena Body Lotion, Loccitane foot cream for dry skin, Loccitane hand cream for dry feet. Kopari coconut melt is a favorite of mine, for myself and also for my kids, it is so gentle and so hydrating. Fresh Brown Sugar Body polish is a repurchase for the coming season, I need all the exfoliation and glowing skin for the spring and summer dresses.

Haircare

For haircare, I have loved the Drybar The Chaser Shine Cream I purchased last year during the Sephora sale. I wanted to try more from the brand, so got this Drybar Hot Toddy heat and UV protectant for hair. Olaplex has been on all social media and magazines, I had to buy this one, as my hair needs some extra care as they are dull, damaged, falling and I am getting aged obviously. Bumble and Bumble tonic lotion have been in my stash since some time, wanted to buy the invisible oil but I suspect it would be heavy for my medium hair, so got this Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible OilHeatt/UV protecting primer.

Makeup

For makeup, I really controlled myself into not overspending as there are many products which I am testing and some which I purchased during the last sale and didn’t get a chance to use. I got my backup of the Tatcha Luminous dewy mist, Tatcha blotting papers, Beauty Blender. Bobbi Brown foundation stick is a cult favorite, so I wanted to try it since last year. Marc Jacobs Omega Bronzer I bought last year but I gifted it to a friend, so got one for myself now. I have not tried anything from Agave yet, so got the lip kit which has deluxe sizes of lip balm, lip scrub to try out the brand.

My Sephora Haul - April 2018

Two more things I bought are from Surratt Beauty which I am most excited for, the brushes. I did not click the picture as I opened them last week and they were in my brush case. I will click the pictures and post on my Instagram in this week. I will keep you guys posted on the products which I have not reviewed on the blog before, whether they are repurchases or first time buys.

I tried to give you a quick round-up of the products I purchased from Sephora this month. Did you buy something from the Sephora sale or are you planning to? Which products from my Sephora sale would you like to hear about first or want me to review first?

 


Kopari Beauty is not new anymore and whoever I have talked to and has used their products, they are a fan. And personally, I am a big fan of coconut, I love eating coconut (both mature and soft jelly-like young coconut fruit), drinking coconut (coconut water is one of my all-time favorites), applying coconut oil on the skin and hair. This love started when I was little and in India, there was not a single time when my mom did not put coconut oil in my hair after washing and drying the hair, that was like a must-have and a part of the routine, as in most Indian households with kids. Even to moisturize the driest skin, coconut oil was always the answer. From north India, I went to South India where I could get fresh coconut juice and the fruit on every corner of the street. It was my best alternative to all the soft drinks and sometimes I could skip the water and drink it to freshen up. All these things aside, there are numerous benefits of coconut and its derivatives, so the main point here is coconut is a real favorite of mine and when there is a brand which is all about coconuts, then the love was obviously natural to happen.

Kopari Coconut Crush Scrub and Kopari Coconut Melt

Kopari Beauty products have 100% pure organic coconut oil, sourced from the Philippines. The products do not contain sulfates, parabens, GMOs, and toxins. The right blend of pure ingredients with cutting-edge chemistry is used to enhance benefits of coconut oil. I have been using Kopari Coconut Crush Scrub and Kopari Coconut Melt since last month and they have become my favorites, they are keeping my dry flaky and hence itchy winter skin on the body at bay.

Kopari Coconut Crush Scrub

Kopari Coconut Crush Scrub is described as a coconut oil-infused brown sugar scrub that polishes, exfoliates, and hydrates dry skin for a gorgeous glow. It is the best solution for dryness, dullness, uneven skin tone, and uneven texture. This is one-of-a-kind Coconut Crush Scrub is infused with a uniquely delicious blend of coconut oil, crushed Tahitian coconut shells, and brown sugar to hydrate and buff dry, dull skin for a silky smooth, lit-from-within glow. The complexion is left looking polished, restored, and radiant with a sweet, milky coconut scent to transport you to the tropics.

I use it on my dry skin as an exfoliator before turning on the shower, then I massage it gently in circular motions to buff away the dry skin. Then I rinse with warm water and pat dry my skin. The results are soft, radiant, clear, and healthy skin. I follow with the body lotion or moisturizer of my choice or with Kopari Coconut Melt and I think the pair works very well together.

Kopari Coconut Melt

Kopari Coconut Melt is described as a premium, multitasking organic coconut oil that hydrates and casts a dewy glow from head to toe. It is suitable for most of the skin types including sensitive skins. It is the best solution for dryness, redness, dullness, and uneven texture of skin. Coconut Melt is comprised of 100 percent pure, organic, and unrefined coconut oil that melts on contact to provide rich hydration from head to toe. Ideal for all hair and skin types, including dry skin, eczema-prone skin, and chemically-treated hair, this lavish oil is loaded with fatty acids to seal in moisture and lauric acid to combat inflammation. This can be used as a Makeup removerLip balm, Deepest conditioning hair mask, Bath boost, Super shave oil, Massage oil, Belly beauty balm, and Baby butter.

Kopari Coconut Melt

I melt a dollop in my hands by rubbing the palms together to warm up the oil, I do follow the traditional Indian way to keep the jar in hot water and it melts so nicely. Then I lather it generously all over the body as a moisturizer. Apart from that, I have used it to remove my makeup, it works great even for the waterproof makeup, coconut melt on the scars is an old remedy and it works, pre-shampoo treatment for hair, even on my kid’s dry winter skin for massaging and as a moisturizer for the body. It has come as a winner in all the ways I have used it till now. It melts when the temperature is high and solidifies again into the white soft texture when the temperature is low.

Kopari Coconut Crush Scrub and Kopari Coconut Melt

Overall, both these products are great for anyone looking to combat the dry winter skin. As there is no residue and it hydrates the skin without any oiliness, it will be great to use year around. These both are keepers for me and I would love to repurchase them once these jars get over. Kopari Coconut Crush Scrub and Kopari Coconut Melt are available in Sephora Canada.
