Review on Korres Wild Rose Brightening Sleeping Facial $48 at Sephora
I got this as a deluxe size sample about 2 weeks ago as a 100 point reward so if this is still a 100 point perk… GET IT
This product is a like a moisturizer but it works to brighten your skin tone while you sleep lightening imperfections like age spots, acne scars, etc. It’s thicker than most moisturizers and VERY moisturizing so I use this as a replacement for a moisturizer when I use it. It has Vitamin C which is really well known for brightening and evening out the skin tone.
So basically, it works. The first night I used it I noticed my skin look a lot more even for only one use. I then began to use it every other night for a week and it has dramatically lightened my acne scars. I even let my bff use it for a night and she agreed her scars were quite a bit lighter than the night before. This product is great because it evens your skin tone while you sleep and you wake up with a more even, super moisturized face. You only need a little because it’s very moisturizing so this bottle will last quite a while.
I’d definitely recommend going to your local sephora and getting a free sample to try or buying it if youre trying to get a more even skin tone. I was very impressed :)
9/10. Would be 10/10 but it’s a tad too thick and can feel greasy if you apply too much.
Try exfoliating your lips every other night with a homemade lip scrub with sugar & olive oil, sugar & honey, sugar & coconut oil or even just sugar and water. This will scrub away the dry flakey bits so your lips are smooth then follow with a chapstick.
My personal favorite lip balm that is AMAZING is Jack Black’s Lip Balm which is $7 at Sephora, Ulta and Nordstrom. Even if you pile on lip balm that won’t actually remove the dry, crusty skin like exfoliating can. Exfoliating your lips first will help the lip balm reeeally sink in. I find when I exfoliate and apply lip balm while i’m sleeping my lips are super moisturized and look bigger when I wake up. Just make sure to keep up with it and exfoliate your lips regularly :)
Try using a Loreal True Match Powder in a N (neutral) or C (cool) shade that is atleast 3 - 4 shades darker than your skin tone! Cheap, not orange/warm and that powder is super blendable :)
You want something thats super creamy and moisturizing! Something like
- Benefit Boing
- Benefit Erase Paste (mainly for under eyes because its pinky/salmon toned which is great for dark circles)
- Covergirl Smoothers Stick Concealer
- Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless Concealer
- Rimmel Match Perfecting Concealer
- Loreal Magic Lumi Concealer
- Maybelline Dream Lumi Concealer
- Borjouis Healthy Mix Concealer
- Bobby Brown Creamy Concealer
- Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser
- MAC Studio Scuplt
- MAC Select Moisture Cover
When the brush hairs no longer feel soft or the brush hairs sort of stick in all different directions.
However most of my brushes are still good as new if you take pretty good care of them. The only brushes that I had to throw out were like super cheap brushes that just fell apart either the handle broke off or all the brush hairs fell out. Brushes should last you at least a few years if you take care of them and get decent brushes :)
To take good care of them make sure you
- Wash them regularly, once a week atleast
- Dry them on their side or upside down so water doesnt seep into the handle which will loosen the glue holding the brush together
- Avoid getting water near the handle when washing so the glue doesnt loosen like the in previous tip ^
- Use proper brush soap to wash them or something that isnt too drying like shampoo or regular soap. When washing with something that isnt really meant for cleaning brushes it can be drying and make the brush hairs more scratchy. I love using Jonhson’s Baby Shampoo because it’s cheap yet gentle and moisturizing. You can even mix in olive oil to condition them but make sure to fully rinse them off so & not use too much the brush hairs don’t feel oily/greasy.
Personally I think the Premium Kit is the most versatile! I could think of multiple uses for every brush in that kit and would use them all. However that might be more of an “advanced” kit because the brushes are a little more unique so if youre a beginner I’d say go for the Essentials kit because I think it’s good to have a mixture of natural hair brushes and synthetic. I started with the Essentials kit like 5 years ago and I still use a lot of brushes from that set :)
