Blogmas Day 2: Cotton Flower Body Wash 

Welcome to day 2 of Blogmas! Today’s goodie from my Sephora advent calendar is a single use of Sephora’s Creamy Body Wash in the scent Cotton Flower.

I couldn’t actually find this product on Sephora’s website, so I’m wondering if it is something they no longer sell or if it is an advent calendar exclusive. Either way, I think that’s a bit odd. Still, this was a nice body wash. It lathered easily and felt nice against the skin. The scent was light and fresh, although it smelled a bit like baby powder which I didn’t care for.

Blogmas Day 1: Eye Pencil to Go

Welcome to blogmas! This December, I’ll be blogging for 24 straight days leading up to Christmas. I thought the perfect subject would be the little goodies from my Sephora advent calendar. First up is the Day 1 present: the eye pencil to go. This cute little pencils can be purchased from Sephora for $6.

I was actually really impressed by this eye pencil! It has a very thin, precise tip which is great for application. The formulation could have glided on smoother, but it was also really long-lasting and budge-proof which definitely makes up for this. This is perfect for tossing in a purse if you think you’ll need a touch up throughout the day.

Milk Makeup Cooling Water 

I love trying new, innovative products and recently received a sample for the Milk Makeup Cooling Water which can be purchased from Sephora for $24.

So, first I’ll just admit that even after reading the description and using this product, I just don’t get it! Sephora’s website describes this as, “A soothing seawater, caffeine-infused gel stick to de-puff eyes and energize the look of skin.” I tried using this on various parts of my face, and it is kind of neat that this product always feels cool to the touch, but it just didn’t do anything for me. It felt oddly sticky and tacky and just felt weird no matter where I tried to put it (under my eyes, on the dry skin of my cheeks, on the oily skin of my forehead, etc). It’s really hard to put makeup on top of this product and it ruins the makeup if you put this on top of makeup. This did not de-puff under my eyes or energize me in any way. The only thing it really seems to do is cool the skin (but you don’t need to spend $24 to cool down your skin when you can just open the freezer door or sit close to an air conditioner).

So, this one was definitely a bust for me! Did any of you have a good experience with this product? Please, let me know in the comments section. Maybe you’ll be able to convince me to give it another try before I throw it away.

Before I go, I did want to let you know about an exciting series I’m about to start on this blog: Blogmas! For those of you who don’t know, Blogmas is where bloggers blog every day in December leading up to Christmas. I recently purchased the Sephora Advent Calendar (already sold out for the season), which comes with 24 small beauty-themed gifts from Sephora! So, for the first 24 days in December, I’m going to reveal and review the fun little gifts that come in the advent calendar.

Thanks for reading!
