Beauty Buys - Sephora VIB sale Haul - 2015 (Part 1)

'BEAUTY BUYS' is just another term coined for the infamous 'HAUL'. It is the list of things I buy, try and the ones you will hear me 'yak', 'blab', 'review' about in next few posts!!! Call this a 'Preview'..

The only time when you can find best deals on high end makeup, skincare, fragrance and beauty tools is the Sephora year end sales. Usually Beauty insiders, VIB and VIB Rouge members get 20% off every single thing with no exclusions. The sale kicks off during November, right before the holidays. There are amazing value sets and gift sets covering all price range. 

I find it a great time to stock up on essentials, try various skincare sets and beauty kits as well as buy those really expensive products that I don't 'need' but just 'want'. Basically it is a good time to save some money on beauty products is what I mean to say. 

I am going to break this Beauty Buy post into two parts. The first part will include the skincare value and trial sets and bath and body products. The second part will include makeup along with some Beauty tools like brushes etc

Sunday Riley is a one brand that everyone is talking about when it comes to skincare. Skincare is my favorite topic to talk, write and research. A pretty expensive line of Skincare, I wanted to try the Luna Sleeping Night Oil, Artemis Hydroactive Cellular Face oil and Good Genes. Luckily, a beautiful two product kit Power Couple was released at Sephora and I picked it. I had to go to a store because by the time I placed my order online, it was sold out. It sadly is sold out now as well, but it is expected to be back in stock. So register yourself for an e-mail notification if interested. I am super excited to try Good Genes, I did manage to get a sample of Luna and I am already using the sample. It is too early to comment on Luna oil though. 

Nude Skincare is a brand I like. Though I didn't enjoy the NUDE Skincare Perfect Cleanse Nourishing Cleansing Oil much, I totally adore the NUDE Skincare ProGenius™ Treatment Oil. I love love that stuff. It is a wonderful oil. They came out with another oil NUDE Skincare Progenius Omega Treatment Rescue Oil and I knew I had to try it. When I saw that it came in a tiny set, I thought it was a great way to try the product. A whole 30 ml bottle costs $68 and this was just cheaper way to try as well as to stock. I mean the whole trial set costs $22 and with 20% off, it gets cheaper. Each pack has 10 ml oil. So 3 packs of 10 ml oil is waay cheaper than $68 and you still get the same amount! Got the math??? The set also contains a tube of NUDE Skincare ProGenius Omega Treatment Milk. So i get to try that as well.

I have used probably 3 generous sample products till date from this brand called REN and I thought it was time to try something substantial from them, so that I can know more about the brand and the products. I picked the REN Pure Glow trio set as it came with three of their best selling products. 

Origins as a brand has always been hit or miss for me. I love some of their products, while others are just no-no. I picked the Origins Good Day Good Night set because it has both, a day cream, GinZing™ Energy-Boosting Moisturizer and a night cream, High Potency Night-A-Mins™ Mineral-Enriched Renewal Cream. I thought the quantity is generous enough to try and the price is just right!
I did pick a bottle of Josie Maran Argan Oil for a friend. It is one of the safest, effective oils I have tried and I know for sure it works. So I am confident of suggesting her the product without worrying about any breakouts etc. 

This last Sephora Favorites set SoKo to Tokyo is something I picked before the VIB Rouge sale started. It has some great Asian Beauty and skincare stuff that is a hot trend now. It came with SK-II Facial treatment essence. that everyone raves about. Also I use the Amore pacific Treatment enzyme peel and I love it to death. It is one of  my holy grail skincare product. I picked the set only for these 2 products. Also I am very excited to try the new Erborian Creme scrub beautifying exfoliating pearls and Skin inc Pure deep sea hydrating mask. It is pointless writing about it now, because the set is not available anymore, but every single product is a permanent one and is available.

The contents in this set:

Amore pacific Treatment enzyme peel 
belif The true cream aqua bomb 
Boscia Exfoliating peel gel 
Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin cream 
Dr. Jart+ Premium beauty balm spf 45 in medium/dark 
Erborian Creme scrub beautifying exfoliating pearls 
SK-II Facial treatment essence 
Skin inc Pure deep sea hydrating mask 

A little luxury in bath is always welcome and every year I am sucked into buying some bath and body products from L'Occitane all thanks to their cute packaging. The Sephora 'aisle of doom' has multiple small under $25 sets and travel minis that are too good to pass. They add up to final bill like crazy!

This L'Occitane Almond Delights set contains:

L'Occitane Cleansing And Softening Shower Oil With Almond Oil
Almond Milk Concentrate
Almond Delicious Hands

There were many other skincare stuff that I wanted to pick, but then I had to stick to a budget. I will be reviewing these once I have used them enough to form an opinion. I really don't like to rave or rant about a skincare or hair care product just after one use. I mean I need to use it for a good period of time before judging and passing a verdict.
