Re: Feedback Wanted: Sephora Collection 2021 Releases

@Guessgal That looks so beautiful!

Re: Feedback Wanted: Sephora Collection 2021 Releases

Thank you ladies @Samtian @idanyd @SportyGirly125 @Buootiful ! I actually wore blush a lot less after the pandemic, but this experience has rejuvenated my interest in blush 🤗

Re: Feedback Wanted: Sephora Collection 2021 Releases

The blush looks amazing on you! @Guessgal 

Re: Feedback Wanted: Sephora Collection 2021 Releases

@Guessgal Congrats on this gratis 

Re: Feedback Wanted: Sephora Collection 2021 Releases

The blush looks lovely on you! I must try the hair scrub this week. Congrats on your new job 🤗 @Guessgal 

Re: Feedback Wanted: Sephora Collection 2021 Releases

Great reviews! And congrats on the new job! @Guessgal 💛💛

Re: Feedback Wanted: Sephora Collection 2021 Releases

Thank you @sister13 ! The new job is a good opportunity that came unexpectedly and I’m already thrown into some projects during my first week, which is refreshing! (rather than just training all the time in week 1 like I thought most jobs did).

Re: Feedback Wanted: Sephora Collection 2021 Releases

Great review @Guessgal . I’m so excited to hear that the hair scrub helps to reduce oil. My hair feels really greasy on the 2nd day if I’m not shampooing my hair. I need to try that tonight 

Re: Feedback Wanted: Sephora Collection 2021 Releases

@blackkitty2014 Yes, this definitely exceeded my expectations with the oil reduction. And yay our hair type is the same so I look forward to hearing how you like it! Oh I forgot to mention, it tastes kind of bad if you accidentally get some in your mouth when you rinse it out (not that I expected anything different since it's apple cider vinegar 🤣 ) but just a heads up!

tl;dr: Great scrub for those with oily hair or an oily scalp.

Spoiler
My hair profile: Thin strands but a lot of them. Can hair be characterized as being combination? 😆 If so, that's what mine would be - the hair at my crown and my scalp lean on the oily side and some weeks, very oily; the length is generally normal, and the ends can veer towards dry from time to time. 
 
ScentThis is one of those products where I am happy to see added fragrance in the ingredients list. In the jar, the scrub has a light-to-moderate pungent scent that is unmistakably that of apple cider vinegar. It's not as potent a scent as a bottle of ACV, but it is noticeable. Interestingly though, as I work the large granules into my scalp with water, the ACV scent is less prominent and I pick up more floral notes. 
 
Performance & Results: This works best for me when I just apply this on my scalp / crown area (the oily parts). As for the rest of my hair, I find this works best if I don't apply any of the product to either the length or ends, and instead just work whatever amount of this product may overflow onto the length and ends as I rinse out the scrub from the top of my head. That seems to prevent any dryness that might otherwise result if I were to apply the scrub directly onto the length or ends. The final result is that my hair feels soft, light and my scalp feels clean, clear and refreshed. 

Overall Thoughts: This scrub is best suited for those with oily hair or an oily scalp. And those who don't mind the scent of apple cider vinegar, even though it's milder than it could be.

Re: Feedback Wanted: Sephora Collection 2021 Releases

Oooh such a useful tip, @itsfi!! Thank you!!

Re: Feedback Wanted: Sephora Collection 2021 Releases

@haleyvvvv, my pleasure; it's something that works for me and it might be useful for others. 

Re: Feedback Wanted: Sephora Collection 2021 Releases

@itsfi Good tip about how to apply it! I'll have to give that a try next time, thanks!

Re: Feedback Wanted: Sephora Collection 2021 Releases

@Samtian, I'll be interested to know how it works out for you with just applying the scrub to your crown / scalp and using the runoff from rinsing out the product on the rest of your hair. Fingers crossed it gives you good results. 🤞

Re: Feedback Wanted: Sephora Collection 2021 Releases

@itsfi I had the same results trying it your way.

Re: Feedback Wanted: Sephora Collection 2021 Releases

Oh, I’m sorry @Samtian. 😔 If I can think of another way to go about it, I’ll let you know.

Re: Feedback Wanted: Sephora Collection 2021 Releases

Ohh I’m learning.another thing from the hair scrub before trying it out. Thx for the tip not applying at the hair end. My poor thin hairs tend to get dried up. 🌹 @itsfi 

Re: Feedback Wanted: Sephora Collection 2021 Releases

@blackkitty2014, yeah, the hair ends. I definitely need to treat the hair at the top of my head differently than the ones at the end. My hair, the ends in particular, seem to take a beating this time of the year since I use more hair tools. My scalp likes the scrub a lot and I'll use it just for that part of my head and stick to hair masks for my ends.

Re: Feedback Wanted: Sephora Collection 2021 Releases

Had to start with the sheet mask. Had to😉

Spoiler
This is the second time I have used the SEPHORA COLLECTION Clean Face Mask Strawberry, the first was back when it launched earlier this year and I have since picked up a few more of this flavor as a gift, to myself and others. I was happy to see this mask included in the gratis box because it gives me an opportunity to use it in the cooler weather, when my skin leans more combo-dry.
 
Material, Serum, and Scent
The sheet itself is soft, thin and lightweight, derived from eucalyptus fiber, which I've learned means that the material is likely lyocell (unbranded form) or Tencel (branded form). The mask is saturated in a clear, watery liquid that has an artificially sweet strawberry scent, though like @lmaster's experience with this mask, the scent in the mask from the gratis package was far less pronounced than the first one I used, very faint actually, which was a bit disappointing for me, but I can see how that would be better for those of us who may be sensitive to fragrance in skincare products. 
 
Performance and Results
I left the mask on for half an hour but like my previous experience with the mask, there is enough serum in this one (both within the mask and in the packet) to last well beyond that amount of time. There's a slight tacky-to-the-touch feel that remains after removing the mask that completely disappears as I continue with the rest of my skincare routine and follow up with my moisturizer. My complexion has a fresh-faced glow to it that I expect from most sheet mask and my skin is left feeling lightly hydrated and moisturized, though with my combo-dry skin, I do feel the need to follow up with a moisturizer. Those with oily or very oily skin may be able to forego moisturizer. 
 
Overall Thoughts
Generally speaking, the sheet masks within the Sephora Collection Clean series are fine, with some flavors performing better than others, which is to be expected. This strawberry one 🍓 is one of the flavors within the collection that performs well for my skin, which is combination for the most part, but leans more oily in the summertime and more dry in the cooler season.
 
Other than the difference in the strength  of the fragrance in this mask, my experience with the sheet mask this second time was pretty much the same as my initial use, which I previously posted on another thread: Re: 💕😌 Mask of the Week Challenge 😌💖 - Page 97 - Beauty Insider Community (sephora.com)

 

Re: Feedback Wanted: Sephora Collection 2021 Releases

Thank you for the review, @itsfi!! 

Re: Feedback Wanted: Sephora Collection 2021 Releases

@haleyvvvv, of course. It was nice to be able to try it a second time in a different season (and for me, different skin condition). Have you had a chance to try the strawberry sheet mask?
