@bem564 This was a reward from last month I believe. Some stores may still have a few. 

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

Thank you, @alexasteph for letting me know. Smiley Happy 

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

New 500 pts perk from Skin Inc! Worth $63.53. I wonder if I should get this.. doc1.png

 

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

Didn't we get to choose two of these as a promo at one point?  I don't think I'd drop 500 points on this, though.

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

Ahhh this promo. 

 

SO it's similar to a 500 pt one from the past. 

 

MY 2 cents-I like the licorice one, it does calm my skin down. This stuff I use up pretty quickly though so money wise it isn't worth liking. 

 

Someone redeemed this 500 pt one in the past and I remember she said it wasn't full either cuz it leaked or evaporated in transit or they're just skimpy. 

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

I got excited for a second but then remembered exactly this. About the bottles leaking or being half full

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

They had those in a promo code last year (you could choose 2) and they did nothing for my skin really. It's certainly not worth 500 of my points.

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

@DaintyDiva I've had the same experiences as you have.  I got them from that same promo and was not happy with mine.  One was to help with hydration and did not make any difference with or under my moisturizer, and the other was the Vitamin A one and I also noticed no differences with it at all.

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

Thank you for feedback! I was gonna get it but after reading your comments decided not to risk it. Thanks for the alert

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

You should get it!!!! I have been using the serums for a few weeks and my skin haven't felt so soft. I have dry flaky skin before trying their serum. I purchased the Skin Inc My Mask Cocktail Kit for $55 and it comes with Pure Deepsea Hydrating Mask and three serums

- 0.17 oz/ 5 ml Licorice Serum
- 0.17 oz/ 5 ml Vitamin A Serum
- 0.17 oz/ 5 ml Collagen Serum

 

But this rewards contains

  • 0.16 oz/5 mL Skin Inc. Chlorella Serum
  • 0.16 oz/5 mL Skin Inc. Vitamin A Serum
  • 0.16 oz/5 mL Skin Inc. Hyaluronic Acid Serum

I still think the value of the rewards is pretty good.

 

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

I received the Fresh 250 point perk today. Just a heads up: The rose mask is 0.5 oz rather than the 0.68 oz that was listed in the description and on the picture.  

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

Bobbi Brown point perk is now OOS. That was pretty fast!

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

Here's some swatches of Bobbi Brown Sandwash Pink. And a swatch of the Too Faced gloss. I think both are quite pretty. The BB is a neutral-warm medium pink on me. I don't like the smell of the bullet, but the scent isn't apparent when worn.

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

Smells like chalk right? But I love that smell for some reason Smiley Very Happy Grabbed one too <3 I hope everyone who wanted it got one!

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

So pretty! Glad to have picked up the BB lip mini. I hope it doesn't pull purple on my yellow skin tone though.

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

What a shame about the lipstick scent. I love that color and wanted to try the BB formula but I'm very sensitive to scents.

 

I think I got a sample of a BB lipstick in my last Choix box. I should go home and sniff it.  

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

The smell, to me, Is how I remember my mom's lipstick smelling when I would play with her makeup as a kid. It doesn't remind me as an identifiable scent, more like lipstick ingredients, & maybe a little mint oil. 

 

Def check the smell out if you can. I think it would bother me if the scent stuck around, but it didn't seem to once worn

I agree! @playingdressup

 

The smell just reminds me of my mom and grandma's lipstick when I was young.  No notes of cilantro for me! Lol! 😉

 

Also I love the formula so much!  This is so creamy and moisturizing! ❤️

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

it's not really fragranced, more like a plastic smell. I'm really sensitive to smells, and I can't smell it when I wear it.

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

Thank-you for posting this, I literally made an order (I needed hand cream anyways, they aren't looking so good right now in this weather!) just to get these!

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

I bought a $1 empty eyeshadow palette so I could get both of these rewards Smiley Happy   (Also because I needed one)
