February 2016 Sephora Haul

February 2016 Sephora Haul

Earlier this month, I had a little shopping spree at Sephora–a Valentine’s Day treat for myself.

List of products purchased:

I have yet to try all of the products, but right now I’m loving the Touche Éclat Neutralizer. I definitely want the other colors, as well as the Touche Éclat Strobing Light Highlighter.

Have you tried any of these items? Would you like me to review any of them?

Nature Republic Bee Venom Roll On Spot Review

Nature Republic Bee Venom Roll On Spot

For annoying pimples and redness, I always use Nature Republic’s Bee Venom Roll On Spot. It contains 63% bee venom complex as well as an anti-acne complex. If you have a lot of acne or blemishes, I recommend checking out the full bee venom line. If you’re allergic to bees, stop right here.

Did you know that Duchess Kate Middleton uses a bee venom mask? Yup, I’m pretty convinced that bee venom works wonders!

  • Packaging: The roll-on is a glass vial about the size of your average stick lip balm. It contains 7 mls of formula and a metal rollerball at the tip.
  • Scent: The scent is so faint that I can hardly make it out! It definitely doesn’t smell bad though. I suspect it matches the rest of the bee venom line.
  • Texture: Smooth and thin consistency.
  • Experience: For maximum absorption (and to keep the rollerball clean), I apply this product after my toner or serum, then allow it a few minutes to dry before continuing with my routine. The metal ball makes the application feel very soothing, and the spot treatment itself doesn’t sting. I usually see my acne and blemishes visibly fade away within three days.
  • Rating: 5/5. If you’re looking for more immediate results, you may need to try a different product. Alternatively, I would suggest committing to using this roll-on (and/or the rest of the bee venom line) regularly to maintain blemish-free skin. Please keep in mind that I achieved my results by only applying the product on an as-needed basis.
