Being a beauty blogger/makeup lover/makeup artist,etc. the one thing that takes precedent over everything else is my skin. If I don’t have a good canvas to work with, then I can guarantee that the makeup applied will not look up to par. That being said, I do not hesitate to drop money on good skincare products (Sheen can concur with this). SUNDAY RILEY was kind enough to send me some deluxe samples to review and already having tried some of their products, I knew they would not disappoint. I received the LUNA SLEEPING OIL and the GOOD GENES ALL-IN-ONE LACTIC ACID TREATMENT.
I have oily/combo skin. My t-zone gets oily while the outer parts of my face can be drier at times. Contrary to popular belief, just because one is oily does NOT mean they should avoid oils. Actually, it is just the opposite. Oily skin needs oil and this LUNA SLEEPING OIL is magnificent. It comes out of the bottle in a dropper (as pictured) and is blue. How cool is that? This oil is meant to help refine wrinkles, help with firmness and make pores clearer. When patted into the skin, it does not leave your face blue or tinted, but just hydrated and ready to sleep in. I highly recommend this if you suffer from dullness or dryness of the skin. I haven’t noticed a difference in my pores just yet but I will keep you posted!
The GOOD GENES is something I was extremely excited about. It is a pricey product but OMG, I will go and purchase the full size. This is meant to be used directly after cleansing your face in the p.m. and is good for all skin types. The Lactic Acid is meant to help brighten and plump. When I put this on, my face immediately feels incredibly soft and when I wake up my skin truly is brighter and tighter. After several uses, you will notice such a difference in your skin. This is a serum but has a slight texture of a moisturizer, the best of both worlds if you ask me.
So you want to know the best part of all of this? SUNDAY RILEY is sold at Sephora and Sephora is having their VIB sale RIGHT NOW through April 13th! If you are a VIB, depending on your status, you can get anywhere from 10-15% off your purchase. I know what you’re thinking…that’s it? But it adds up, trust me! Like i said, take care of your skin and your makeup will perform better than you could have imagined and why not start with SUNDAY RILEY?
Until next time…
