My local beauty supply store Bellacara was having a 15% off store wide sale last Saturday and I knew I had to be there. I needed to stock up on a few skincare items and also wanted to check out what unique brands they carry. I loved their selection and thought I’d share a Bellacara beauty haul with you.
Kiehls Creamy Eye Treatment: I’ve gone through several tubs of this as it’s my favorite evening eye cream. It’s ultra thick and very moisturizing which is exactly what I look for in a nighttime product. A little goes a long way because of its rich consistency. If you’re in the market for a thick eye cream you will love this.
Clarins HydraQuench Intensive Serup Bi-Phase: I’ve been on the hunt for a new face serum because the one I’ve used for almost two years was discontinued! I know….sad times. I’ve read several great things about the Clarins HydraQuench range and when I tested this in store I knew it was going to come home with me. I’ve tried several Clarins products over the years (body cream, lipgloss, sunscreen) and have never been disappointed by them. Plus the packaging is so luxurious and the bottle feels nice and heavy in your hand.
Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder: It’s been on my shopping list for weeks and I finally pulled the trigger on it. It’s a cool tone brown with hints of ashy grey in it. I apply it lightly to the hollows of my cheeks and frame my face with it. It’s a perfect beginner contour product as you can build it up nicely to whatever coverage you want. It’s considered one of the best contour powders in the industry (aside of the Kat Von D contour palette) and I like this one because of it’s color and buildabilty.
Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Shampoo + Conditioner: I already have the primer and oil from this range and have been loving them these past few months. Bumble and Bumble have slowly crept it’s way into one of my favorite hair brands and I wanted to try out the matching shampoo + conditioner since I liked the other two products so much. I will report back to you on them!
Klorane Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk: As an avid reader of the beauty magazine Allure it was just a matter of time before I tried their top rated dry shampoo. As it’s something I use almost every day I know I will get great use out of it. It’s made with all natural ingredients and is paraben free.
Morroccan Oil Luminuos Hairspray: Oh how I LOVE the scent of Morroccan Oil products. I still have plenty of hair oils to finish and since my current hairspray is almost out I thought I’d give this one a whirl. I’ll really take any opportunity for my hair to smell like Morroccan Oil. No questions asked.
Those were all of the things I picked up in my Bellacara beauty haul! I try to support local businesses whenever I can because I enjoy supporting my community. If you’re ever in the Alexandria area you should stop by and check out their latest products! Do you try and shop locally?
