I have a $25 Sally beauty Giftcard Giveaway and Sally Beauty Supply Review & Haul! My Fiance an I stopped by Sally Beauty Supply yesterday before our movie date. I stocked up on some great skin care products, makeup, a hair treatment, and a curling iron. This is a sponsored post meaning, Sally Beauty gave me a $100 gift card to write about my overall experience. I went the extra mile and wrote what I thought about the products I purchased in sincere honesty. These are items that I genuinely wanted to purchase.
As I mentioned, I went shopping with my Fiance. With that being said, I knew I had to speed up my usual shopping stride. I prepared the night before by making a list of things to get! I went to the official website: Sally Beauty Website Next, I filled up my online shopping basket and took a screenshot with my camera phone to remember what I wanted.
They are so friendly and professional at Sally Beauty Supply, we walked in and we were greeted. There were so many people shopping there on a Friday evening. I was surprised. The store looked fully stocked with tons of items to explore. There was even a clearance table with great deals to check out.
I headed right to the skin care aisle! My usual “go to items” are skin care products – especially facial masks, and serums. I was so happy to see Sally Beauty Supply had tons of retinol products to select from! One whole aisle was just skin care, yay!
These are the items I purchased!:
I love that I can use this in the morning and at night! My skin looks more hydrated when I use a retinol. Retinols also help your skin renew itself faster, meaning your skin will look more youthful! This is very useful for using around the eye area, forehead, and expression lines. Retinols really seem to “plump back up your skin wrinkles”
I love how this absorbs excess oil and helps shrink pores!
It also smells so refreshing. My skin feels like it can “breath” after I use this.
In the Summer, my makeup melts, my face sweats, and my pores get larger! Using a masque like this one helps absorb the excess dirt and oil that gets lodged into my pores. It seems like no matter how great my skin care is, a hot summer messes up my skin! This is my summer “go to” masque! It’s great for anyone suffering with acne too! 😉
I love how this helps tighten up my skin and it leaves my face feeling very smooth and protects against wrinkles. I’m so in love with this Queen Helene Mud Pack Masque, that I did a huge review on just this mud pack masque here.
This also has that amazing skin nourishing English clay in it. I used it last night and wore it while I washed the dishes. I like letting the steam from the sink help make this masque work even better!
This is a foundation that I have been curious about and have always wanted to try because it’s an 8 in one full coverage foundation. I’m unfamiliar with this brand and it was the one item I tried simply because I had the extra money to splurge on. Thanks to Sally Beauty Supply! I would compare this to Revlon Colorstay except this has a lighter feel on the skin. I applied this to a dark mole on my face and it was covered in one swipe. I usually have to go two layers with my other foundations. I wish this had more light reflective ingredients. It’s not luminous but it’s a great full coverage foundation. I would apply this with a foundation buffing brush and not a sponge as it’s suggested. I used a sponge and you could see my pores. When I blended it with a brush, the finish looked flawless. However, this foundation did not pass my all day long wear test. My 5pm my foundation looked cakey and oily. In fairness, I applied MAC Studio Fix powder on top of this to set it. If your skin is normal, this foundation may be right for you. My skin is combination and it didn’t work for me.
This is a great way to help tone down brassy hair! This is an amazing product. Just use as directed and your blonde highlights or bleached hair will look brighter. This is a must buy if you have bleached hair! As you know bleached hair is more brittle and needs help with removing contaminants from your hair that can leave a brassy color to your hair. Great product! <3
This came with argan oil! I used this to beautifully curl my hair for my birthday. This worked very well and was easy to use. I only curl my hair maybe twice a year. This curling iron had the lowest heat settings to help protect my hair. When you have bleached hair, you need less heat as possible!
