Neutrogena launches new hydrogel mask

Neutrogena Hydrogel Mask, $2.99

Neutrogena has added a sheet mask to its Hydro Boost line and it’s only $3!

The new mask uses my favorite ingredient, hyaluronic acid to hydrate and boost plumpness in only 15 minutes. Unlike most affordable sheet masks, this one is made from hydrogel and not paper. The thicker, gel-like material helps to push the ingredients into your skin and produces better results than a paper mask.

The mask is available wherever Neutrogena is sold (I found mine at CVS) and online at neutrogena.com. Neutrogena also has a second hydrogel mask called the Deep Clean Purifying Mask, also priced at $3. Head over the website right now and you can get two Light Therapy Masks for the price of one ($35)! These innovative masks use LED light to kill acne causing bacteria. Masks last 30 days and can be reused by purchasing a Mask Activator for $14.99.

ULTA haul $15 off $50 coupon

Score at ULTA with these coupons coming to your email

For about the past nine months or so, I have been getting $15 off $50 coupons in my email every quarter. Here is how I took advantage of the deal and read the end to see how to get yours!

  1. Mia Puffy Pony, $6: I sometimes work as a photography assistant and I thought this would be a neat accessory to add volume to a  long, thin ponytail. Unfortunately, this only works if you have thick hair already.
  2. The Scrub Of Your Life by Soap & Glory, $12: This five star body scrub smells great, comes in a handy squeeze bottle and gets rid of the rough spots!
  3. Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm by Clinique, $6 (trial size): This balm transforms into an oil that removes even the thickest mascara and physical sunscreens. Find the trial size hidden in the Clinique displays.
  4. DipBrow Pomade by Anastasia, $18: I got a deluxe sample of this brow pomade and had to get it. It comes in a nice range of hair colors and makes your brows look like a professional did them!
  5. Tarte Lip Sculptor minis, $12: When you want to put gloss over your lipstick you end up messing up your gloss wand or trying to use your finger. Tarte Sculptor by Tarte has a lipstick on one end and the matching gloss on the other. Problem solved! Find this mini duo tucked into one of the prestige cases or up at the cash wrap.
  6. 10 days To Great Skin by Clinique, Free: ULTA has been serving up unannounced freebies  with purchase lately. They change every day and you never know what you’re going to get. This kit has 10 ten days worth of Clinique skincare including Liquid Facial Soap, Clarifying Lotion and Dramatically Different Moisturizer. Perfect for your next vacation.

Now for the deals – Most of them come to my secondary email (not the email registered to my account), but still work with my club card. I have also been getting quarterly 20 percent off total purchase offers to both emails. These offers are GOOD on prestige products! Try to set up a second email and see what you get!

Tickets now available for Nordstrom’s Fall Beauty Trends Show

One of my favorite fall activities is the annual Nordstrom Beauty Trends Show.  Beauty lovers get early access to the store,  to enjoy coffee and goodies while seeing the latest and greatest in fall beauty at Nordstrom! You also get the chance to win products in the show and get makeovers from renowned national brand makeup artists. You must buy a ticket for $20, which can be redeemed for product on the day of the show.  Attendees also get a beauty tote filled with samples, so win-win!

The Beauty Trends Show at the Montgomery Mall Nordstrom will be held on Saturday, Nov. 18, 2017 at 8 a.m.. You can buy your ticket by visiting any beauty counter or by calling the store at (301) 365-4111. Tickets must be purchased in advance and must be redeemed on the day of the event.

If you can’t make it to the Montgomery Mall show, Tyson’s Nordstrom will be having a show on Nov. 11, 2017. If you are not in the DMV area, visit Nordstrom.com, navigate to stores and events to find a show near you!

Tips: Make sure you get there early to get a seat and enjoy your coffee.  After the show is over, the beauty department turns into a crowded zoo! If you know that you want a makeover from a certain brand, you can make an appointment ahead of time so you don’t have to wait. You have until the end of the business day to redeem your 20 bucks so if you live close, you may want to come back later in the day.

 

L.A. Girl concealer now available at ULTA

L.A. Girl HD Pro Conceal in Porcelain (affiliate link in this photo).

You can now find that popular Instagram concealer inside ULTA stores! L.A. Girl’s HD Pro Conceal has a brush applicator which makes for a cleaner and easier application. The full line of L.A. Girl is available on the ULTA website but you can find the concealer in a small portable display in store (very small, blink and you’ll miss it). The colors are limited to six complexion shades and four correctors, priced at $4.99 each.

I grabbed the lightest shade I could find, Porcelain. L.A. Girl suggests you choose a shade two or so shades lighter to use as a concealer. The applicator is reminiscent of Stila Lip Glaze, and makes it easier to apply.  It blends well with a sponge/blender and has good staying powder as long as you use a setting powder. You have to use a good amount for coverage so I don’t think it will last that long. Buy one in store and if you like it, stock up online. You can also find it at select Rite Aid and CVS Pharmacy (coming soon) stores.
