My Top 5 Under $25 from Sephora

Hello loves! I hope you are having a fantastic Thursday. We’ve almost made it to the weekend! Today I am going to share my five favourite products from Sephora that cost under $25!!!

As a lover of beauty products, I like to find some great products at a reasonable price. Over the past few months I have been purchasing products under $25 that I could test, and share with all of you. There are so many incredible makeup and skincare brands out there, but lets admit… to purchase all of these products and try them would cost us thousands of dollars. That’s why I am here. To test as many products as I can and give you my honest feedback. Lets Jump right in to the list.

1. Dr. Dennis Gross Extra Strength Daily Peel:    $22  CAN – 5 peels                                          What it is: 
A daily anti-aging AHA/BHA extra strength peel that combats common signs of aging to reveal radiant, smooth skin.

Solutions for: 
– Dullness and uneven texture
– Fine lines and wrinkles
– Acne and blemishes
– Pores

Upon first application of this product, I could feel a little burning sensation. This subsided within seconds. I could actually feel this working. I would recommend using these 2-3 times per week. This is an exfoliant, so please discontinue use if irritation does not subside within a few minutes. Overall, I would highly recommend this product.

2. Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist:    $24 CAN 12ML                                                                Which skin type is it good for?
✔ Normal
✔ Combination
✔ Dry
✔ Sensitive

What it is:
A silky, fine mist moisturizer that can be used under or over makeup for dewy glowing skin anytime, anywhere.

Solutions for:
– Dullness
– Dryness
– Fine lines and wrinkles

Ok, all I have to say is I am a huge fan of Tatcha products and this did not disappoint. It feels like a blanket of softness on my skin. I can’t help but touch my face while wearing this.  It looks flawless under makeup, and feels great on your skin on a no makeup day. You will not be disappointed.

3. Bite Beauty Prismatic Pearl Creme Lip Gloss:  $25 Can                                                   What it is: 
A collection of metallic pearl glosses, in shimmering multi-dimensional shades that are found in rare black pearls.

What it does:
Inspired by a trip to Tahiti, Bite Beauty’s founder, Susanne Langmuir, created Prismatic Pearl Crème Lip Gloss shades. They offer gorgeous, pearlized color pay off, for a modern, foiled lip look. They’re formulated with lip-softening shea butter for a luxurious lip finish.

When I first tried this product, the first thing I noticed was that my lips actually felt plump and moisturized. It didn’t dry my lips, nor did it have a sticky consistency. Some lip gloss leaves my lips feeling slimy and tacky. This one however, I had none of these issues. This a a lip topper and would need to be used over a lipstick or a lip stain. I found I experienced more dimension using it this way.

4. Smashbox Superfan Mascara: $19 CAN

What it is:
A lengthening mascara that gives you modern, fanned-out volume without any heaviness or clumping.

What it does:
Super Fan Mascara creates buildable lift, length, and volume that lasts for up to 12 hours. The 360° Precision double-bristle brush loads product from root to tip, while the soft comb reaches, styles, and reveals lashes you never knew you had. The super black formula keeps lashes looking fuller and thicker without any clumping, smudging, flaking, or heaviness.

5. Sephora Sleeping Mask: TYPE: Green Tea – Mattifying & Anti-blemish $5 CAN

What it is: 
A line of rich cream-gel textured sleeping masks, each with a skin refreshing benefit.

What it is formulated to do:
Each of these masks is infused with a different active ingredient for relaxing the skin and achieving a brighter, more revitalized complexion. The luxurious cream-gel texture melts into skin for penetration of the active ingredients while you sleep.

Here are the different mask that you can purchase:

Pearl Mask: Evens and helps minimize irregularities for skin tone that is even, fresher, and brighter.
Avocado Mask: Offers intense nutrition to the skin while relieving sensitive zones.
Algae Mask: Cleanses skin while helping to eliminate impurities for a fresh, radiant morning complexion.
Orchid Mask: Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and signs of aging while moisturizing for skin that appears smoother and firmer.
Ginseng Mask: Provides a tightening effect while toning for a supple, fresh, and energized complexion.
Lingzhi Mask: Smooths wrinkles and minimizes the signs of aging for younger-looking skin.
Lotus Mask: Locks in water and reduces the signs of fatigue for the appearance of plumper, more rested skin.
Rose Mask: Plumps skin and gives an immediate radiance boost for hydrated, more luminous skin.
Green Tea Mask: Absorbs excess sebum and purifies for a matte, clean complexion.
Pomegranate Mask: Awakens and tones the skin while reducing signs of fatigue for a revitalized look.
Honey Mask: Nourishes and relieves dry skin instantly for softened, balanced skin.

I have personally used every one of these masks and love them all. Today I will be reviewing the Green Tea mask.  With these masks, you can most definitely get more than one use. They are a gel mask and I have personally gotten 4-5 uses from each one. I just store the unused product in a air tight bag and I’m good to go. By doing this you can maximize your money and save in the long run – by getting 4-5 uses you are actually paying $1 per mask!! FREAKIN’ AWESOME.

I hope you all enjoyed my top 5 choices of products for under $25 at Sephora. Skincare and makeup are  so expensive and it is great to be able to recommend what works and what doesn’t work. What works for some, may not work for all. Thank you all for taking the time to check my blog. I would love for you to follow me and give feedback on my posts. Feel free to comment on products you would like me to do tips or reviews on. I am always ready for the challenge.

Until next time…
