Quick beauty PSA

Hello all. Been super busy. Haven’t had time to write or post my budget post and probably won’t have time until after finals/end of semester.

But I just want to post this awesome deal I found the other day.

Caudalie Moisture Essential Set, $39 $29.25 via LovelySkin

This awesome Caudalie set is now $29.25 (down from $39) at LovelySkin and it contains three full sized items: the Moisturizing Sorbet (normally $39), Hand and Nail cream (normally $15) and Lip Conditioner (normally $12). The value of all three items if you bought them individually is $66! LovelySkin also offers free samples and free shipping.

As for whether the products are worth it, I received a deluxe sample of the Moisturizing Sorbet from Sephora a while ago and only recently tried it out. And oh my god it is so nice. The cold weather here has been wrecking havoc (re: dry + flakiness) on my already-inflamed (re: cystic acne 😦 ), normally-over-oily skin. Basically, my face is a fucking mess and I wanted something to moisturize and soothe while not being too heavy/pore-clogging. This product was a godsend. It isn’t hydrating enough to magically get rid of the flakiness overnight but using this moisturizer in conjunction with hydrating face masks I brought back from my last trip to Taiwan, not only has my skin started clearing up a little, but my face is slowly returning to its oily+hydrated state (never thought I’d prefer oily over dry!). I’ve been waiting to buy the full-size product from Sephora (with that $20 off $50 coupon) but when I saw this deal, I couldn’t pass it up.

The moisturizer is light and has this kind of choppy-whipped like texture. It’s hard to explain. And when it’s applied on the skin, it becomes almost liquid-y? It’s interesting… It sinks in faster than my other moisturizer and a little goes a long way. It is very lightly fragrance-d and it smells really good and calming (coming from someone who is picky about scents).

I’ve actually never tried the Hand and Nail cream before, but it gets great reviews online, and my hands need all the help they can get. I had eczema when I was younger and it’s mostly gone away except for my hands that burst into scaliness when I’m stressed (like now). And with this weather, I really needed a small hand cream to carry around. It’s only a matter of time before the cracking and bleeding begin, but I’d really like to delay this problem for as long as possible. So this product is perfect to fill my hand cream gap.

The lip conditioner is another thing I haven’t tried, but my friend who always has chapped lips swears by this lip balm and always has one on her person. Since I’m not used to this weather (and by this weather, I mean anywhere between -1 to 35 degrees F), my lips have also been rebelling and chapping like crazy which is something I’ve never really experienced before (only time my lips have gone cuckoo was when they were sunburned lol). So this lip conditioner is also perfect for me right now. I’ve been using the fresh lip treatment (the white one) but it tends to just sit on top of my skin rather than sinking in and helping the healing process.

So basically, this set is perfect for my needs right now and it’s on sale and you should get one too if you need any of these things. 😉 Not sure when this sale is over, so get this set while you can! It would also make a great gift as a whole or as individual items.

I was not sponsored or paid to endorse this product. It’s just that good!
