January Sephora Play Box

Welp. Since it feels like January outside with the snow, I feel a little less bad about posting this so late 😂

GLAMGLOW
SUPERCLEANSE™ Clearing Cream-to-Foam Cleanser

Which skin type is it good for?
✔ Normal
✔ Oily
✔ Combination

What it is:
An advanced cleanser with a powerful blend of three charcoals to detoxify skin by removing pore-clogging debris, excess oil, and face makeup.

My overall thoughts: it has a distinct smell, like fennel seeds, that I wasn’t really fond of; and it also worked okay. However, it is not a product I would buy again.

BOSCIA
Exfoliating Peel Gel

Which skin type is it good for?
✔ Normal
✔ Oily
✔ Combination
✔ Dry
✔ Sensitive

What it is:
A lightweight gel peel that gently exfoliates for deeply purified and radiant-looking skin.

My overall thoughts: I had never used a chemical peel before, and to be honest, I wasn’t that big of a fan of this. Definitely not for me.

CLINIQUE
Pep-Start Eye Cream

Which skin type is it good for?
✔ Normal
✔ Oily
✔ Combination
✔ Dry
✔ Sensitive

What it is:
An instant brightening and hydrating eye cream that features a blend of peptides to help combat the visible effects of your busy life.

My overall thoughts: I love eye creams! And this worked amazing. Love it and would think about buying for the future.

ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS
Lip Gloss [Kristen – cool colored sand]

What it is:
A fully-pigmented, weightless lip gloss formula in lacquer and luster finishes.

What it does:
This ultra-pigmented lip lacquer delivers a mirror-like gloss finish. Its round, flexible applicator ensures precise application.

My overall thoughts: I liked this color and the application process but not the smell/taste. It sort of reminded me of like a chemical artificial strawberry cream shortcake vibe. But the other qualities trump the smell because it doesn’t last long!

Hi, I'm the founder of The PhDream. I'm a second year doctoral student who wasn't satisfied with just sitting behind a desk and writing papers. While my research may have an indirect impact, I wanted to engage more directly with the community and provide a platform to discuss neglected and sensitive issues. Along with that, I try to stay sane in my program by stress baking, glamming up even when I'm down, and sharing my dad-joke captions on the gram -- if only that creativity could translate into my research... Anyways, I'm always looking for contributors, collaborations, and people to eat my zelicious creations, so don't hesitate to reach out or follow me @ZuniJilani :)
