Sephora's Birthday Party

Hello everyone! It's been a while since my last post. I got caught up in daily life activities (It always happens) But, I am back and I want to share with you my birthday gifts from Sephora.
Yes, it was my birthday recently and with each year I feel very thankful for the wonderful people in my life, specially my family and my Booboo.
But, with each year passing by, I am starting to think about the aging process that everybody will have to experience at one point in our lives. Yes! I am very vain and I would like to be young forever. I am very guilty of that and I try to take good care of my skin. I always drink lots of water, I always wear SPF and I always apply skin care products before going to bed.

I went to Sephora with the excuse to pick up my birthday gift and with the secret idea of getting some skin care products. And this is what I found:

dr. brandt collagen booster 

This dr. brandt collagen booster, it supposed to stimulate the collagen production of the skin. So far, I like this product. I like the smell and and I like that its light formulation applies very easy into the skin. This is not a moisturizer, so you need to apply one after applying this product. I have seen some good improvement on my face, specially on my cheeks. The pores look less visible around my cheeks and nose area.

I also got this: 
Apivita Express Beauty Mask with Ginkgo Biloba 

Apivita Express Eye Mask. I've been wanting to get my hands on this mask for quite some time. I was wanting to try the Ginkgo Biloba because I've heard that it is really good for the skin. 
This mask says to help improve the apparence of the under eye area, so I had to try it. This is very rich cream mask that you apply under the eye area and on your eyelids and leave it for 10-15 minutes. The box has 6 double packs for a total of 12 little packs. I used just one pack for both eyes because as I said, this is a very concentrated mask. I really noticed a reduction in my puffiness and my under eye area looked brighter after I used this mask. I will keep using it and I hope to see good results. 

And finally.........Happy Birthday Beautiful gift set from benefit.

I got the they're Real mascara. I have never tried this mascara before, but I have heard wonders about it. I haven't seen what is the big thing about this mascara, to be honest. I didn't see that it gave any full length to my eye lashes. But, I think I am happy to have gotten this as a  gift so I can tried it on.

What I am really loving is this What's up highlighter. It gives me a nice glow without looking to pinkish like other highlighters do on my skin complexion.  This blends really well with my skin tone and I love it!

I hope you all are enjoying the Spring season and that your allergies are under control. Mine are acting up lately and I am trying to control them drinking a lot of green smoothies and a lot of ginger tea. So far, so good.

My love to all. Hasta pronto!
