Black Friday Beauty Haul – Weleda Skin Food Review

I am not the typical Black Friday shopper.  I don’t get up at 4:00 AM or stand in long lines looking for that $199 television or unbelievable deals on the latest iPad.  My Black Friday shopping is much more fun!  My husband & I have a long-standing tradition of buying a new Christmas ornament every year on Black Friday.  Once we get that taken care of, the rest of my day is spent on guess what??  Beauty!!  This year, I picked up a few new Beauty products I’ve been wanting to try.

My Black Friday Beauty Haul finds in 2017 were Weleda Skin Food, Pixi Glow Tonic, Bliss Feeling Bright Under Eye Concealer and No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Eye Cream.  I also picked up NARS The Multiple (see my review of this in the color Orgasm here) and Living Proof Amp2 Instant Texture Volumizer. Keep an eye out for my upcoming review of this product!

Let’s get right to my thoughts on the products from my 2017 Black Friday Beauty Haul!

Weleda Skin Food

Weleda Skin Food
You can even use Weleda Skin Food on your face! In fact, it has been said to be a dupe for the very expensive La Mer Moisturizing Cream!
I remember reading in a magazine that this is Victoria Beckham's favorite body cream. So... I quickly added Weleda Skin Food to my list of products that I want to try. As you can imagine, I have a LONG list! Click To Tweet

In fact, the former Spice Girl is not the only celebrity that adores this skin cream!  The amazingly beautiful and talented Adele and Julia Roberts are both obsessed with it.  You an find Weleda Skin Food in the makeup bags of all three celebrities at all times!

Anyway, about this cream…

Weleda Skin Food is 100% Natural which I really appreciate!  The ingredient list includes rosemary leaf extract, Calendula and chamomile, in a rich, thick base of oils and beeswax.  Skin Food hydrates skin to give you a healthy-looking glow.  I started using this on dry areas like my hands, knees and elbows and quickly fell in love with it.  This cream is very dense and you only need a little bit of it.  It is somewhat difficult to spread but I’ve found that warming it in your hands a bit first helps a lot with the application. That being said, this little green tube works wonders on dry skin.  It is extremely hydrating and lasts for hours.  You can also use this cream on your face!  In fact it has been said to be a dupe for the very expensive La Mer Moisturizing Cream which sells for $305.00 USD! IF you find Skin Food too dense for use on the face, you can mix it with Weleda’s Calendula Face Cream for Baby which absorbs faster and dries lighter.

I’m not crazy about the smell, it has an earthy scent that I’m not fond of.  The good news is the scent goes away, it doesn’t linger very long.  Overall, I really love this cream and will buy it again!

Price:  $12 – $19

Would I purchase again?  Yes!

Pixi Glow Tonic

PIxi Glow Tonic
PIxi Glow Tonic exfoliates the skin & leaves you with a subtle, rosy glow!

PIxi Glow Tonic is a highly concentrated, invigorating facial toner that deeply cleans pores by sweeping away excess oil and impurities. According to Pixi Beauty, it helps to firm and tighten normal to dry, dull and aging skin. The oxygenating tonic removes dead skin cells, leaving skin healthy and radiant. With 5% Glycolic, the fluid hydrates the skin, and Aloe Vera and Ginseng help to soothe during application.  I’ve been using this toner daily for about a month and I am very pleased with it.

Pixi recommends using this either in the AM or PM.  I’ve been using Pixi Glow Tonic at night as the second step in my routine, immediately following my cleanser.  For those concerned with irritation from the Glycolic Acid, I can tell you that I have very sensitive skin and I haven’t had any problems with redness or irritation.  I've seen improvements to my overall complexion and skin tone and this toner leaves your skin with a subtle glow. It provides the perfect amount of exfoliation and leaves your skin feeling clean and refreshed. Click To Tweet My only complaint with this is the price.  At $17 – $22 USD for 3.4 fluid ounces, it’s a bit pricy.  Overall, I love the results and will probably purchase again.

Price: $17.00 – $22.00 USD

Would I purchase again?  Yes!

No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Eye Cream

No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Eye Cream
No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Eye Cream has brightened my under eye area and smoothed my lids!

I am still searching for my Holy Grail eye cream. Having tried the No7 Protect & Perfect Advanced Serum which I love, I thought I'd give the eye cream a try. I've been using No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Eye Cream.. Click To Tweet now for over a month and it has become a favorite.  This eye cream is said to visibly improve the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles for younger looking skin. It contains a blend of peptides to accomplish these results.

Initially I didn’t see any difference in the appearance under my eyes.  However, that changed after about 2 weeks.  I am not sure about fine lines and wrinkles yet as you need to give it a good 60 days for that.  However, this eye cream definitely brightens the under eye area.  I use this cream on my eyelids as well and it helps with the smoothness of they eyelid and has brightened the area under my brows.  No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Eye Cream absorbs quickly and is easy to apply.  I have VERY sensitive eyes and this cream has not bothered them at all.  The packaging of this eye cream is a tube shape which I love.  I’m excited to see if the results continue to improve over time.  We’ll see.  As it stands right now, I would definitely repurchase this eye cream as it is producing some real results.

Price: $21.99

Would I purchase again?  Yes!

Bliss Feeling Bright Under Eye Concealer

Bliss Feeling Bright Under Eye Concelaler

I've been using this concealer for a few weeks now and I really love it. The texture is creamy melts into the skin. I love that it doesn't settle into fine lines, brightens the under eye area and... Click To Tweet it gives a nice, radiant glow to the skin.  It comes in a small tube and is perfect to carry in your purse or makeup bag for on the go touch ups.
