Sephora Haul: Skincare & Foreo Luna Giveaway!

Hey Everyone!

s1

Sephora sends me some of their latest products from their exclusive brands, pretty much monthly. I usually post these amazing boxes on instagram but I have lately wanted to blog about them because they’re for sure an amazing opportunity for you and I to discover new or cool things! This month is all about Skincare in their Skin Rescue box. I can’t wait to show you what’s inside. Plus, there’s an exciting giveaway for the famous Foreo Luna cleansing device at the end of this post so stay tuned.

s2

Let’s see what’s in here! I got really excited this month because I finally get to try some Kate Somerville skincare products. I’ve seen them in a few youtube favourites videos and on the counter for being really effective. We also have some goodies from Peter Thomas Roth, Caudalie, and Algenist. For this post, I want to show you the products that I’m most excited to try.

First up – Kate Somerville. For a brief introduction, here is some information about Kate Somerville from their website. She’s basically a skin expert and dermatologist in the USA who created this line of products.

The creator and director of a renowned medi-skin Clinic in Los Angeles, Kate Somerville has devoted her life to creating flawless faces. Her solutions-based strategy has made her one of the most trusted names in skincare today.

In fact, she is personally responsible for the glowing complexions of hundreds of leading ladies, whose livelihoods depend on their looks. When it comes to a clear complexion and a gorgeous glow, stars like Jessica Alba, Paris Hilton, Sandra Oh, and Debra Messing depend on Kate Somerville.

By partnering early on with top dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons, Kate pioneered the integration of skincare and medicine, paving the way for the field of paramedical esthetics and laying the foundation for the bourgeoning medi-spa industry. It was after she developed the Skin Health Pyramid™, however, that Kate truly solidified her standing as an industry leader.

From the range, I have today the Kate Somerville EradiKate Mask (SGD $85) which tackles blemishes without drying skin out. It has a soothing formula that gently exfoliates dead skin cells and Colloidol Sulfur unclogs pores and reduces acne blemishes. I also have now the Kate Somerville D-Scar that erases acne scars. Both of these are super useful to me as my skin has on and off breakouts that are really annoying. Some days it can be perfect and others are just a headache. I want to try these to see if they work!

k5

I’ve never seen a mask like the EradiKate mask before to be honest. It pumps out as a pink liquid mousse that smells like a mix of skin clinic and sulfur. I thought you had to manually foam it up until I read the directions.

k6

When you apply and spread it on the face, it immediately foams up into this white foam as you can see. You need to leave it on for ten minutes. It does have a slight tingling sensation because you can feel the foam foaming up but nothing too intrusive. It’s quite gentle actually. After ten minutes, I washed it off and my face felt cleaner. I think I need to use it more to see any real results though.

k7

Next up that I found really cool is the Peter Thomas Roth Eye-Cubes. Thankfully, I don’t really get heavy under-eye circles or puffiness under the eyes. I just get all around puffy if I do get water retention. I have though heard of that ice cube trick to apply it underneath the eyes to decrease puffiness. I think this might be a product that plays around with this idea. I found it pretty cool because I haven’t seen anything like it.

p1

When you open the package, it looks like mouthwash in little capsules. There’s also a little zip lock bag containing little mesh bags for you to put your ice cubes in when they’ve frozen. The directions tell you to freeze the capsules first.

mewoww

So that’s exactly what I did. Ta-Da! I popped the whole package into the freezer. Be sure to leave them in the freezer bottom side down as normal and not tilting as the liquid will tilt and freeze that way.

hihis

Next, I popped them out of their plastic packaging and slipped them into the bags. You have to do this fast. I actually thought it was going to be more gel like since the photo on the packaging looks more like a gel but this is for sure just an ice cube. The liquid is slightly silkier like a watery shower gel.

ic2

After you’re done, just press and massage under the eye. You apparently only need one ice cube for two eyes each time so you get quite a lot in the package. One thing to note is that they melt very fast. It smells great – like a green melon ice cream – often I’m wondering if it’s sweet because it smells that way. I feel like I’m melting a popsicle underneath my eyes. It’s more of a mess than expected so I would suggest doing this at home and having tissue nearby. I did however feel a tightening sensation under the eyes which was nice and I reckon if I did have puffy eyes today, it would have worked.

hihi22

Another cool find in the box was this – the Sephora Ultimate Warming Cleanser (SGD $19). It has a honey-like texture that becomes warm in contact with the skin and it helps to wash away impurities, makeup and sebum. There is also Maple sap extract that keeps the skin hydrated and comfortable and not tight and dry. I haven’t tried this yet but I will probably in the next few weeks or so.

s5

The thing I’m most excited about? My very own Foreo Luna device for sensitive/normal skin (SGD $299)! You’ve probably seen this cleansing device next to the Clarisonic at Sephora and you’re probably wondering what it is. Yes, it’s a new cleansing skincare gadget and many have claimed it to be even better than the Clarisonic. I have the Clarisonic and I have kind of stopped using it. I don’t like how I have to frequently replace the brush heads and I find it not as hygienic. But this doesn’t use brushes, it uses silicone and you don’t need to buy replacements. It also operates on a vibrating cleansing method that deeply and gently cleanses with T-Sonic technology, delivering about 8,000 pulsations per minute.

f2s

I’ve been watching a lot of videos on the Luna and a lot of people are saying it’s better than the Clarisonic, especially for people with sensitive skin like me. Like the Clarisonic, you can charge it up. It has an on/off button and a plus and minutes to increase and decrease the speed. The front of the Luna has a rubbery bristled side for deeper cleansing. It’s soft and not hard so you aren’t going to damage your skin or brush or scratch it like I felt I was doing with the Clarisonic at times.

hihi2

The back of the Luna is apparenty for anti-ageing which leaves the skin feeling firmer and more elastic. Simply apply your normal skin cleanser on your face, wet the Luna, turn it on, and use it for a minute massaging your face. Then you can turn it off and rinse. Some other Youtubers use it in the shower and most of them absolutely love it and say it’s better than the Clarisonic. I’m really excited to try it for a while and do a video review after a few months to see if it does work! I did try it once and I found it made my skin clean (but a little tight) and very soft. It’s hard to think that it can because it has such rubbery “bristles”. Nonetheless, after all the reviews I’ve been watching, I can’t wait to see results.

    I would love to see a blog post about your favourite acne clearing treatments!

  • Annsley

    I’m very intrigued by the Foreo Luna so it would be great to have an in-depth review of the Foreo Luna range of products, how it works etc. and how it compares with the Clarisonic in terms of effectiveness. Personally, I have the Clarisonic Mia and have stopped using it for a variety of reasons that if the Foreo Luna is the same as the Clarisonic or if the Clarisonic is better, then I would know whether the Foreo Luna is worth a shot (or not). Thanks Roseanne!

  • Mindy

    How bout different make up techniques / focus areas for different face shapes? That would be interesting! :)

  • Belle

    Hi, Roseanne :)

    I would love to request you to do a review between Clarisonic and Luna Youtube Video. Same as you, I do have sensitive and acne prone skin. (2 in 1 ) lol skin problems. So, I really need to clear vision which cleansing gadget really suit my skin even better so that I won’t waste extra money (since, I am a student T__T ) for my delicate skin. Because, I heard that Clarisonic doesn’t clean as better as luna which I really confused. Please, do a comparison review for both!

    Oh yes, will you conduct next makeup lesson in tertiary schools or private school like SIM. Since, you had a few lesson in SMU. : )

    Hi would really love to see a detailed comparison video between the clarisonic and the foreo luna. but since its mentioned already so I would also love to see you doing a fanbingbing inspired makeup from “The Empress of China” Saw that fanbingbing has this really bold lips and dramatic eyelook. Immediately thought that you will totally rock this look! Look forward to more youtube videos and blogposts from you! Thanks a lot! Cheers ^.^

  • Dee

    It would be great to have a blog post about best practices for taking care of your skin, and including a review of the Foreo Luna in there. I’ve seen that in Sephora and have been curious about it! Would love to know more about it and how it ties in with the overall ideal skincare regimen.

  • Michelle Gabriella Yong

    Hi Roseanne!:) how about a morning to night makeup,hair and outfit transition? I think that would be pretty cool!
    Oh and I just thought of another! Maybe you could do the whisper challenge on YouTube? Definitely something different to your channel but I figure this could be really different and refreshing to see! :)

  • sherlyn

    Hi Roseanne!

    Thanks!

  • Jessie

    I would like to see a video talking about drugstore blush.

  • Jacie

    I would love to see your top 5 must have skin care products for a beginner like me. I have sensitive skin too and thus do not really dare to try just any brand in the market. P.s I attended ur makeup lesson and it’s awesome! Any beginners could follow so easily. And hence, I would to hear from you about your products that must have for sensitive skin. Thanks in advance (:

  • Elyse

    Do an updated 3 minute make up challenge! It would be interesting to see the products and techniques you use to complete a quick makeup look for an everyday look!

    I have been using cleansers only and I think that it does not clean my face thoroughly. I am pretty insecure about my blackheads as it shows through my make up :/ I’m sure the Foreo Luna would help me!

  • Peifen

    Hi Roseanne! Love your blog and youtube channel. I would love to see a makeup tutorial on how to make makeup lasts under singapore weather. I have super oily skin and Singapore weather just makes it worse. My makeup just can’t last at all despite many ways and methods I have tried over the years.
    Because of my oily skin, I would also love to try the Foreo Luna cleansing gadget. And hopefully it can help to clear the blackheads and whiteheads due to my excessive sebum secretion.

  • Edna

    Hi Roseanne! Thank you for sharing these with us :) How about a review on Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer? :) It’s so difficult to find a good concealer in the market that’s of decent coverage, texture, staying power and colour match to skin tone. Would like to hear your thoughts on this product :)

  • Nurul Arini Junaidi

    Hi Roseanne!
    I would live for you yo do a skin maintenance tips kinda video.Like maybe share the most forgotten basic skincare tips that we forget ever since all the new stuff came out.For example my mum reminded me that the most important basic tip is to massage the face while washing! Oh and I would live to win the foreo! I’ve been using a cheap daiso face brush go attempt to mimic the foreo and clarisonic. Do let me win dear Roseanne! Thank you!

  • McEra Tragers

    Hi Roseanne!! Well, as for the vlog request, I have several in mind so I’m just going to list it down for you.

    1) A Day In Roseanne’s Life – This could include your morning routine, what do you normally have for breakfast, your everyday makeup and you can also end it by sharing your night routine as well.

    2) Since you love travelling, I bet you can also share with us on the “must-have” things for you to bring when you go Travelling.

    3) Room/House Tour! I read somewhere below, there’s also another viewer who also requested on this as well! So, please consider doing this Roseanne!!

  • Pei Yi

    Hi! I would like to see some DIY videos , such as DIY mask that you can do it at home easily. I have been your subscriber for a while and I realised you don’t really do DIY video so I would like to learn a few DIY tips from you!

  • Aziemah

  • Angela Lim

    I would love to see a blog post about how to brighten eyes through makeup tricks or with the help of colour contact lens.

  • yamunah

    Hi,

    Would be great to see a video on top 5 tricks for having a flawless makeup. It would definitely help all of us to know how to achieve good makeup with simple tricks!

    Thank you. <3

  • Hui Ting

    Natural korean make-up tutorial video using your top choices of make-up products that are pocket-friendly :)

  • Michelle Lim Xiu Hui

    I would like to see a makeup video that features a makeup that we can do in if we have 5 minutes, 10 minutes and 20 minutes each. I always face this challenge of racing myself against time to get a make up ready for work or parties. Of course, it will be good to include some simple and easy hair styling tips and tricks to complement the make up video. Of course, a video of make up removal using Foreo Luna over a 2 weeks progress so that we can understand if using Foreo Luna really works magic for our face. Thank you!

  • Zincy

    Hi Roseanne!!! I hope to see videos like your beauty/maintenance day! Or also wake up with me or get ready to bed with me routine! Love all your videos and hope you keep making more! :)

  • Joycelyn

    Would love to see a video on your skincare regime!

  • Jacqueline Tan

    Please do a video on your top 5 favourite masks!

  • Nazyra

    I would love to see a “beauty tools worth the hype/$” type of video. Makeup brushes/sponges, magic cleansing tools for the face (both the clarisonic and your new Luna) or tools that claim to increase the efficacy of penetration of skincare into the skin. A lot of tools are marketed so well but does it really make that big a difference? That’s what I’d like to know.

  • Meeteng

    I would like to know what are your tips for a heatproof makeup esp for weather on sg! I tend to avoid makeup because sometimes i am already sweating before i leave the house! Might want to share tips on how you keep your makeup nice even after a long day!

  • Huan

    It would be wonderful if you can do makeup on some other people, like Lisa Eldridge, but with local students and asian makeup! You have flawless skin so maybe you can feature a brave soul who has some blemishes and teach us how to cover the zits or just even to look professional. This is currently my problem. I am just trying to look neat for work, so that people wont be distracted by my zits but I am struggling to control the acne.

  • Jo

    Hi Roseanne!

    I would like you to do a skincare video on daily maintenance, as good skin is the best canvas for makeup.

  • Hanis O

    Hi, I’m intrigued with the Foreo Luna device, especially when you mentioned that you find it better than Clarisonic (and I’ve heard some really good reviews about it!). I’d like for you to give a more thorough review about this device after using it for a longer period of time. And perhaps, you can share more of your skincare regime and products that you have tried and loved! ;)

  • Gladys

    Heya!

    There are a few videos that i would like you to do!

    1) How you spend your typical day at work?

    2) $20 make up challenge

    3) 5 minutes make up challenge (Really suitable for me as I am always rushing for work!)

    Thanks for organizing this give away and good luck!

  • bluehaert

  • Zy

    Would love to know your favorite masks! (Clay, hydrating, sheet, etc)

  • CL

    Hi Roseanne! Could you do a tutorial on eye makeup for hidden double eyelids? It’s quite difficult to get the right amount of eyeliner on these eyelids without looking like having heavy makeup on at 9am in the morning lol :(
    Would also love to hear your skincare regime / product recommendations for sensitive skin! Many thanks in advance!

  • Xinning

    Hi Roseanne!

    Could you do a post or video comparing the Clarisonic and the Foreo Luna? Thank you!

  • Mindy

    Hihi! Would love to see a tutorial on make up for days when u need to wear specs to work! Sometimes it’s just an off day for wearing contacts bt u would still want to look good when facing clients :) thank u!

  • PJK

    I would love to see a video on a weekend makeup routine or a top favourite nude lipsticks routine.

  • Irene

    I would love to see make up tutorials for different skin colours! I am towards a darker shade, and most make up tutorials/adverts are always for fairer people which I can’t really mimic :(

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Anne

    Hi!

    I’ve finally got enough points to get 10% off my next purchase at Sephora. Seeing as I don’t have a Clarisonic, the Foreo Luna sounds really interesting!

    It’ll be great if you could do a video on your top 5 or your absolute must-have products from Sephora before my next massive haul! :)

  • Michelle

    I would love to see a rose gold make up tutorial! Rose gold would make such a sophisticated look but it still keeps it girly. I love your videos! The way you explain makes it so informative which makes it easy to replicate the techniques you use to create make up looks!
    Winning to Foreo Luna would improve my skincare routine so much! Currently, I am only using my fingers and a cleanser to cleanse. I would love to try adding something like the Foreo Luna into the mix. Keeping my skin clean and healthy is important to me and it creates that perfect canvass for make up.

  • Anne

    Hi! The Luna definitely sounds v interesting, especially as I don’t have a Clarisonic yet!

    Seeing as I just hit enough points for 10% off my next trip at Sephora, could you please post a video or blog about your absolute favourite products from Sephora? Looking forward to my next big haul there! :)

  • Lavinia Kwek

    Please have a makeup tutorial for sensitive and combination skin! The erratic weather has done no one any good and I’ve given up using makeup altogether. Please help!

    I would love to try the Foreo Luna! After investing $200 in a cleansing brush, it did me no good and the sensitive parts of my skin just got worse. Fingers crossed for me :)

  • Lina

    Hi, I would like to see a review made for the comparison for clarisonic vs foreo Luna n the result of it

    Thanks:)
