Beauty Haul | Spring 2015

There’s nothing like a good coupon to push me into my favorite beauty supply stores after being good (and not tempted) for so long.  I ended up buying a few things I needed and then some I really didn’t, but that’s the beauty (and craftiness) of sales!  I thought I’d share my haul with you.

Pacifica Body Butter – I’ve used and loved this awesome line of moisturizers for years!  Malibu Lemon Blossom and Tahitian Gardenia are two of my favorite spring/summer scents.

✻ The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil  Body Butter – I’ve been a fan of the Body Shop body butters for ages and am excited to try this delightfully fresh, floral scent.

✻ Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub – You know I love the Tree Hut scrubs!  The Amazon Pequi scent reminds me of coconut lime.  It’s beachy fresh!

✻ Clarisonic Luxe Cashmere Cleanse Brush Head – I made the switch over to the cashmere brush head this winter and haven’t looked back.  It is so luxurious!

✻ bareMinerals Pop of Passion Lip Oil-Balm – I can’t resist balm-like lippies and can’t wait to wear this bright pink pop of color this spring and summer.

✻ Ole Henriksen African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser – I was in need of a new cleanser and thought I’d give this foaming variety a try.  I love drinking African red tea; I’m hoping I’ll love this cleanser!

✻ Sephora Collection Bamboo Charcoal Blotting Papers – These are my favorite blotting papers I’ve tried yet, so I stocked up on a new pack.

✻ Boscia Black Charcoal Blotting Linens – I saw that Boscia carried a charcoal blotting linen as well and decided to grab one while I had the discount to try them out.

✻ Coola Makeup Setting Spray SPF 30 – I’m a big fan of the Coola Mineral Matte Face Suncreen and thought this makeup setting spray sounded like an innovative and convenient product.  I can’t wait to try it out this summer!

✻ Hourglass Ambient Bronzer – I’ve loved all of the ambient powder products that Hourglass has rolled out and I’m hoping for the same experience with this new bronzer.

✻ Bite Beauty Butter Cream Lipstick – I just can’t resist Bite Beauty lippies.  When I saw they released a butter cream line my heart sang!  I’m loving the color Heather for a nice coral pink pop.

✻ Fresh Sugar Nude Lip Treatment – I’ve been a fan of these lippies for years and was excited to see them launch a new shimmery, sheer option.  I have a feeling this is going to be go-to all summer!

✻ Tarte Showstopper Clay Palette – This is the third year that Tarte has released a special round-shaped eyes and cheeks palette.  I love the other two and found them so handy for travel I knew this beauty was making its way into my shopping cart.

✻ Nails Inc. Victoria Beckham Bamboo White Collection – I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect creme nude polish for years and have finally found it!  I can’t get over how beautiful the formula is and how long it’s lasted on me.  Check out my Instagram for a photo!

  1. Hello dear 🙂 loved the video as always. I tried the kate Somerville anti aging daily moisturizer it’s wonderful. If you could do a review on Sunday Riley oil I would really appreciate it. Lots of love for you and family Xoxo

  2. Hi Jen, I know how much you love The it cosmetics CC cream. And I wanted to let you know that QVC has a super size right now. It’s such a great deal and such a great product.
    Ok Jen have a great day. I’ll see you soon, that’s on YouTube of course because I wach all of your videos. I hope to meet you some day, perhaps some day if you come visit your grams in San Diego. Also tell Don hello, And thanks for being such a great husband to our Jen. Also big hugs to Miss Win.

  3. Thanks for sharing! This was a great and detailed blog post and video. I saw a picture of the nail polish and fell in love. Cream nudes are so beautiful for any time of the year.

    I have the same skintone as you and found the most beautiful nail polish that is very complimentary. It is called: NARS Easy Walking Nail Lacquer Pair. It comes in a duo but the one that stands out most is the shimmery, rose-gold colored one of the duo. I think it would look great! It also lasts for a while without chipping!

    I don’t know if I can post a picture here but here is a review with pictures:


  4. I like your make up, that is probably one of the reasons why I watch your videos ……. You often mention TiffanyD, but I actually find your make up sense so so much better than many make up gurus 🙂 Your choice of lip gloss and lipsticks are phenomenal too, that could be another reason why I watch your videos hehehe…..

  5. Thank you for this lovely post&giveaway&video!
    thank you, I really love all your hauls!and all your vlogs and videos.
    Entered the giveaway and crosss my fingers..
    Going straight to check and watch the video.
    Wish you a wonderful day!

  6. I loved your haul ! The palette is so pretty ! I look forward to hearing about the bronzer. The only thing new I have bought this spring the mascara that you told us about. I am loving it !

  7. I’ve never seen any of the Tarte round palettes before, they look gorgeous and so convenient. Might have to make a little visit to soon 🙂

    Also the Nails inc polish looks so so pretty and it’s nice to finally see a non-streaky opaque white/neutral nail varnish!

  8. Oh how I need that brush! lol So much enjoy your videos…hoping Don is making a full and quick recovery and big hugs to you all…Happy Mother’s Day to your moms…they done good!

  9. Hi Jen. Great video. I am so behind on my video’s and just now finished yours. I had 14 minutes left to enter your giveaway. Fingers crossed. I have been dying to try those IT cosmetic brushes.

  10. Love all the videos with new things to try. I am a Bare Minerals lover. I love how natural looking and not made up I look, just bought the gloss on the go trio set, which is actually 2 sided so you get 6 moxi glosses. It is wonderful, I don’t wear lipstick because it is so thick, love that the gloss has a tinted color to it. You should give it a try.
