Thank you for the update, sorry to hear it didn't work out for you, @idanyd!! 

Re: Feedback Wanted: Sephora Collection 2021 Releases

Hello @TeamBIC!! 

 

Thank you so much for the lovely goodies!! I am so excited to play with everything!! Apologies for the slight delay, work has been nightmarish these past two months.

I've been eyeing these cream blush palettes for a while (I'm loving a cream blush moment and I love the more sustainable packaging on the SClean palettes). I just panned my project pan cream blush so I'll be devoting the next two weeks to playing with these. The shades are beautiful and the blush brush picks them up so well!!

Indoor lighting. I'll do some naturally light this week.

 

I'm super excited to try the scalp scrub and the brush. I've already tried the Strawberry mask but I'm eager to try again to get my thoughts in a row.

 

Thank you so much for the generous gratis and for the chance to review these products!! 🥰🥰

SEPHORA COLLECTION Hair Cleansing Scrub 6.76 oz/ 200 mL 

 

I have an issue with an ingredient in this product, however tried it once then passed it on to a friend who would enjoy it more. I avoid Sodium Chloride in my shampoo as it is a cheap filler ingredient that ends up drying your hair/scalp over time and fading your color. 

I found this scrub okay. I don’t have an oily scalp or product build up so I wouldn’t typically be someone who purchases this type of product. I’m not a huge fan of scalp scrubs as over use/ scrubbing too abrasive can cause micro tears on your scalp. 

Re: Feedback Wanted: Sephora Collection 2021 Releases

Thank you for the info, @GG84!! 

Re: Feedback Wanted: Sephora Collection 2021 Releases

“Micro tears to the scalp” is something I have never heard of, yet I will now be on the alert, @GG84. Thank you for sharing this helpful info!

Re: Feedback Wanted: Sephora Collection 2021 Releases

@GG84 Thank you for sharing your incredible knowledge with us! I'm going to keep an eye out for that ingredient from now on.

Re: Feedback Wanted: Sephora Collection 2021 Releases

I decided to put the SEPHORA COLLECTION Vegan Makeup Remover and Cleansing Brush to the test to see not just what results would follow but how well it removes makeup, sunblock, dirt, sweat, etc. compared with my usual first cleanse routine.

TESTING ENVIRONMENT: Full face of makeup. I usually do a pre-cleanse with Bioderma Micellar Water, but decided to forego it this time to see how well the cleansing brush performed. 
 
I applied Paula's Choice Omega + Complex Cleansing Balm 3.5 oz/ 104 mL, my current first cleanser, to my forehead, both sides of my cheeks and jawline
 
Right Side of Face: I cleansed the right side of my face with the Sephora Collection Cleansing Brush, wetting the brush and then working it over the right side of my face in circular motions for 60 seconds. Afterwards, I rinsed off the cleanser with lukewarm water.
After first cleanseAfter first cleanse
The cleansing brush is surprisingly very gentle on my skin, a plus! 
 
Left Side of Face: I cleansed the left side as I normally do, wetting my fingertips and massaging the cleansing balm all over the right side of my face for 60 seconds, and then washing off the cleansing balm with lukewarm water and a washcloth.
 
RESULTS: To see how much makeup, dirt, etc. was left behind after this first cleanse, I used the SEPHORA COLLECTION Clean Cleansing & Gentle Exfoliating Wipes Coconut over each side of my face. Here are the results after the first cleanse
Results: while neither side was all clear and squeaky clean, the cleansing brush side looked like it did a slightly better job of removing dirt, makeup, sunblock, etc.Results: while neither side was all clear and squeaky clean, the cleansing brush side looked like it did a slightly better job of removing dirt, makeup, sunblock, etc.
 
While my first cleanse cleared away a lot of dirt, makeup, etc., it looks like the cleansing brush yielded slightly better results (and provided a deeper manual exfoliation than just using a washcloth, which is not unexpected). It's not a huge difference in terms of how much dirt and makeup was still on my face after the first cleanse, but a couple of passes of the cleansing towelette on the left side of my face (no cleansing brush) picked up more dirt and makeup than what showed up with a couple of passes on the right side of my face (the side where I used the cleansing brush) with the SC wipes.
 
FINAL THOUGHTS: I was happy with how soft, gentle and easy it was to use this cleansing brush. My skin can be slightly sensitive and I didn't experience any irritation or redness from the brush. It felt smooth as I was working it over my skin; I didn't experience any tugging or pulling, not even when I used it on my eye area. 
 
I will give it a try in another couple of weeks, using it with my second cleanse to see where in my cleansing routine I'd like to incorporate it. However, even given how gentle it is and the results it provides, I don't see myself using this every day, especially if my skincare routine involves other forms of exfoliation, chemical or manual. For now, it seems like something I might reach for once every other week.
