The Coolest New Products I Found On Sephora.com This Week Episode 2

You guys really seemed to enjoy the post I did about new products at Sephora last week, so I’ve decided to turn it into a weekly series! Here’s all the cool new stuff I found at Sephora this week!

The Coolest New Makeup at Sephora

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder Glow $38


Source: LauraMercier.com

What it is:

A radiant version of the cult-favorite Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder.

Why it’s cool:

The TLSP is one of the best powders on the market and I’m super excited to see a new take on this classic. As with the original, there’s one shade that will work for fair to light skin, and another shade designed to work for medium to deep skin so it will never look ashy. The glowing skin trend is showing no signs of slowing down, and this looks like a great way to get in on the fun!

Hourglass Scattered Light Glitter Eye Shadow $29


Source: Beautylish

What it is:

5 shades of intense glitter eye shadows in pot form.

Why it’s cool:

If you love glitter, you’re gonna go gaga over these! They’re absolutely stunning. I’m hoping these will also be a way to get a lot of impact with minimal mess.

The Coolest New Skincare at Sephora

Naturally Serious Lip Service 3-in-1 Lip Serum $16


Source: Sephora.com

What it is:

An antioxidant serum for lips.

Why it’s cool:

The lips are one of the most vulnerable parts of our faces because lips don’t have oil glands to create a protective barrier. In addition to a lip balm to help prevent lips from losing moisture, it’s also a good idea to use a lip serum to treat specific problems. The antioxidants in this serum are great for nourishing the skin and preventing signs of aging. Lip Service contains six antioxidants: pomegranate, goji berry, grape seed, green tea, red tea, and white tea.

Ole Henriksen Transform Plus Glow Cycle Retin-ALT Power Serum $58


Source: OleHenriksen.com

What it is:

A serum containing a combination of glycolic acid, lactic acid, edelweiss stem cell, and Bakuchiol, a retinol alternative.

Why it’s cool:

I’ve been hearing a lot of buzz about this serum already, and it’s easy to see why. This serum boasts tons of skin-beneficial ingredients and some of them are quite unique! In addition to all of the previously mentioned ingredients, this serum also contains hibiscus flower extract, which improves skin texture, licorice root, which helps to fade hyperpigmentation and dark spots, and squalane which is an amazing ingredient for increasing hydration.

Unfortunately, this serum also contains some ingredients that might not sit well with some people, such as dyes and fragrant plant oils/extracts. Depending on your preferences and skin sensitivities this serum may not be for you.

Ole Henriksen Goodnight Glow Retin-ALT Sleeping Creme $55


Source: OleHenriksen.com

What it is:

A companion cream to the Retin-ALT serum.

Why it’s cool:

This creme contains the same beneficial ingredients as the Retin-ALT serum to give skin an added dose of skincare. However, it also suffers from the same problems as the serum, so if you’re someone who chooses not to use products containing added fragrance, fragrant plant oils/extracts, and/or added dyes in your skincare, then this product isn’t for you.

Volition Snow Mushroom Water Serum $62

What it is:

A vitamin-rich hydrating serum.

Why it’s cool:

Mushrooms! Yes, we’re talking about mushrooms again, but this time it’s not about adaptogens. As the name would suggest, snow mushroom is the star ingredient in this serum. It’s a wildly hydrating ingredient on it’s own, but it’s even better when it’s paired with watermelon and apple extracts which contain vitamin A and vitamin C. Both are great for creating a brighter, more even skin tone. On top of that, this serum also includes marine water to help reduce the appearance of pores, and lentil extract to hydrate and condition the skin. I actually mentioned wanting a snow mushroom serum when I reviewed the Marc Jacobs Shameless Foundation, which also features snow mushroom. I’m glad to see it’s now a reality!

Saturday Skin No Bad Days Set $39


Source: Sephora.com

What it is:

A value set that includes 4 minis from Saturday Skin.

Why it’s cool:

You’ve almost certainly seen this brand floating around Instagram, and if you’re curious like me, this set is a great way to dip your toes in with the brand. This set includes Rub-A-Dub peeling gel, and Daily Dew- an antioxidant-rich hydrating face mist. Also included are Wide Awake eye cream and Featherweight Daily Moisturizing Cream. All of these products include Saturday Skin’s signature selection of peptides, which help to encourage the skin to produce collagen, and in turn reduces and prevents the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.

Herbivore Hydrate + Glow Natural Skincare Mini Collection $39


What it is:

A 4-piece set of Herbivore products to hydrate and brighten skin.

Why it’s cool:

Another highly Instagram-able brand, Herbivore creates natural skincare products that are also free from dyes and fragrances. This lineup includes Phoenix Cell Regenerating Oil, Pink Cloud Rosewater Moisture Cream, Brighten Pineapple Enzyme + Gemstone Instant Glow Mask, and Rose Hibiscus Coconut Water Hydrating Facial Mist, all of which work together to exfoliate the skin, restore hydration, and create a luminous glow.

RMS Beauty Within Probiotic + Prebiotic Supplement $64


Source: RMSbeauty.com

What it is:

A plant-based dietary supplement.

Why it’s cool:

This completely vegan heath supplement features a range of good bacteria which are vital for maintaining a healthy gut and immune system. In turn, skin, hair, and nails also become healthier due to the increase in absorption of nutrients caused by the bacteria. It’s a win-win!

The Coolest New Fragrances at Sephora

Nothing exciting this week, bummer!

The Coolest New Body Care at Sephora

Biossance Squalane + Bamboo Deodorant $16


What it is:

An aluminum-free deodorant.

Why it’s cool:

If you’ve been looking to ditch antiperspirant, Biossance just released a natural deodorant that also features squalane to hydrate the skin and bamboo powder to absorb moisture. Geranium, grapefruit, and clary sage oil help to keep you smelling fresh.

Go-To Exceptionoil $39


Source: GoToSkincare.com

What it is:

A nourishing oil-balm for the body.

Why it’s cool:

This is basically everything you could want in a body oil. It’s loaded with skin-conditioning ingredients like coconut oil, mango butter, and rosehip oil. On top of that, it’s filled with lovely antioxidants such as tocopherol (aka vitamin E), fatty acids, and amino acids which serve as support for healthy, supple skin. Oh, and did I mention it has an all-natural tropical scent? Gimme dat!

The Coolest New Hair Care at Sephora

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Body Builder $29


What it is:

A hair spray with heat protection.

Why it’s cool:

This hair spray combines the hold of a hair spray, the airy movement of a texture spray, and the gloss of a shine spray- all while providing heat protection up to 450 degrees. Living Proof is one of those brands that just gets hair care right, so I have full faith that this is going to be an awesome product!

IGK Bad & Bougie Amla Oil Deep Repair Shampoo and Conditioner $25 each


Source: IGKhair.com

What it is:

A shampoo and conditioner designed to protect and strengthen hair.

Why it’s cool:

I feel like such a Millenial, but damn IGK just kills it with their product names. Whoever names these, please be my friend because you’re way cooler than me. As for the product itself, Bad & Bougie uses a combination of coconut oil and amla oil to protect hair without weighing it down, and vegetable protein to strengthen hair. If you’ve never heard of amla oil (I hadn’t!) it’s derived from gooseberry and is supposed to promote hair growth while also preventing hair loss and dandruff according to Medical News Today.

The Coolest New Tools and Brushes at Sephora

Dr. Dennis Gross SpectraLite Faceware Pro $435


What it is:

A mask that utilizes LED lights to treat the skin.

Why it’s cool:

What the actual f$#! is that thing?!

– me as I was scrolling through Sephora and saw this mask.

I’ve seen somewhat similar light-based masks for treating skin, especially acne, before but this one from Dr. Dennis Gross is a whole new ballgame. For one, this device is hands-free so you can walk around scaring mail carriers and small children with ease. This mask also has the ability to treat acne and wrinkles all at once with red and blue LED lights. The red light encourages collagen production, and the blue light kills acne-causing bacteria. With this mask, you can use either the red or the blue light, or use both at the same time to treat both concerns. Is it worth that steep price tag? No clue, but I’m curious.

That’s all I have for you this week! If you missed last week’s episode, you can check it out here. See you next Friday for another edition!
