I am sharing one of the most festive and beautiful holiday collection of this year which even my kids approve – the packaging as mentioned is so stunning and the products inside are even more decadent – from the rich body cream to luxurious home scents – it is all about winter, holidays, and memories. There is a gift for everyone I assure you. The collection this year includes new ranges including Honey Harvest, Festive Garden and the relaunch of the Home Collection. I am sharing my picks from the Holiday Collection.

Another reason that I am even more glad to share is that this year, L’OCCITANE is partnering with PUR Projet in an effort to preserve biodiversity beyond Provence and the Mediterranean by planting 10,000 native trees across North America. From October 23rd – November 26th,
each purchase of our holiday editions will support the goal of planting 10,000 trees. Plant a tree, plant beauty. For more details, check on their official website here.

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.

My Sephora Haul - April 2018

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.

My Sephora Haul - April 2018

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.

My Sephora Haul - April 2018

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?
