Yes we are product junkies!
We Love Products. It's really quite that simple. We have tried a ton, and I mean a ton, of products over the years and are always on the lookout for the best face mask, mascara, eye shadow palette, well you get the picture. Emily has suffered for a long time with skin issues (hmmm I believe since 6) so we have been on a journey of finding the right product for whatever situation we are in and, of course, makeup of any kind is just fun!
Clinique is a staple for Kristin and, since it's friends and family time, we wanted to share what is in our cart on repeat. Right now at Clinique, you can get 25% off your purchase with code SMART25. Plus, if you order $75 worth, you get a free full size of a product AND if you order a sun care product, you get a free full size package of Pep-Start wipes. Sign up here to become a loyalty member, which is also free (always a good word) and comes with some great perks! Here is what we just ordered this morning:
The Rinse Off Foaming Cleanser is gentle but gets the job done, the Naturally Gentle Eye-Makeup Remover will get the mascara off without pulling out all your lashes (yikes, who wants bald eyes) and Super City Block SPF 40 because we live in Las Vegas. We use the Clarifying Lotion daily and Kristin just might be obsessed with the Blended Face Powder.
Other things we love to throw into our cart on occasion are the Take The Day Off Makeup Remover that Emily requires for ballet performances to avoid massive irritation from stage makeup and Kristin loves the Brow Shaper that comes with a perfect little brush. We both dabble in different colors of eye shadow palettes that, now here comes the really good part, most of the time come free with our orders. Yes FREE...yay! All the little freebies we get when we purchase our must haves we actually do use. The product samples of lotions and toners are perfect for packing on trips and carry-on ready (less than 3 oz.).
We love Clinique and we especially love the perks that help support us product junkies! On a side note, we get so many free makeup bags that we NEVER have to purchase one...a well-known fact we giggled about when mentioned on Gilmore Girls!
Another place we love to feed our need for products is Ulta and through April 6th it is the 21 days of beauty event. So many great deals to be had! Emily is looking at March 29th for the Tarte Toasted Eyeshadow Palette for $19.50 (regularly $39) and Kristin is so ready to try Peter Thomas Roth's Hungarian Thermal Mask for $29 (regularly $58) on March 22nd. We may need to check out April 6th's deal...Benefit's Gimme Brow Gel for only $12...wow! Check in each day here for the deals of the day.
Product shopping can be fun but can be hit or miss. The Clinique products we presented here are ones we have used for years and fully endorse. As always, happy shopping!
Kristin and Emily
