I recently had the opportunity to attend an event organized by Sephora Middle-East to showcase their new summer launches and world famous brands now joining the league here in the UAE. As always, its an immense pleasure attending beauty events and Sephora tops it all… and it goes without saying for the ‘Sephoraholic’ in me!! There are quite a few new products that I will be reviewing in this post and updating you with my favorites and what I highly recommend.

Sephora Wonderful Cushion Face Luminizer

Lets get started and first up on the list is Sephora Wonderful Cushion Face Luminizer. It comes in a cute packaging and consists of about 20ml of product that holds up in a plastic tube. Extremely light weight to hold on to which makes it great for travel as well. If your someone who doesn’t enjoy a light bulb highlighter effect on your face then this is your cup of tea. It provides an instant glow(as it rightly suggests on the packaging), extremely light weight in texture and has a beautiful champagne tone to it. It appears to be more bronzy/peachy on the little cushion/sponge. When it comes to longevity, I think it does require a touch up after a couple of hours considering its light weight consistency. The built in cushion is my fav bit as its so handy and you really don’t require a brush. Great innovation going on there! The wonderful cushion also comes in different blush shades. Something that you might want to look out, when you head to Sephora next.

Next up in line is the Sephora Clarifying Booster – A new product under the Sephora umbrella and it was the first application that got me hooked on to it. The clarifying booster is formulated to treat visible pores and imperfections. It absolutely hugs on to the skin and tightens the pores making them appear minimized. The high concentration of Zinc works like magic by balancing out the skin texture and making it look matte. Use it religiously for great results over a period of 2 weeks or more. I have been using it over a month and I think its a real skin booster!!

Sephora Whipped Cream Body Moisturizer

The Sephora Whipped Cream Body Moisturizer is also the newest addition to Sephora collection. The fragrance is oh-so-amazing and the texture is feather weight. What I really like about this whipped cream body moisturizer is that it gets absorbed into the skin instantly and does not leave a thick white residue or cover on the skin. The consistency is butter like yet very smooth and light weight. It lasts all day and the watermelon fragrance is such a hit during summers here. Two thumbs up for this one!!

Sephora Instant Nail and Cuticle Care

Sephora Instant Nail and Cuticle Care

Next in line is the Sephora Instant Nail and Cuticle Care – This is a master product as it does about 3-4 things in one. When you soak your nails in the foam, it removes the nailpaint, nourishes, strengthens and has oils that protect your cuticles without letting them dry out. You basically don’t have a to carry things like a nail paint remover, cotton pads, cuticle oil and a moisturizer. This is an all-in-one solution and takes less than a minute. Perfect for travel as you don’t have to carry a dozen other things and this does not tend to leak either. This is my current fav on the nail paint remover list!

One of the best sellers at Sephora is the Instant Moisture + Cream and I have been trying it out for a while with and without makeup. The moisturizer gets absorbed into the skin effortlessly and is about 90% light weight in texture. It definitely provides hydration and perfect for most of us here in the Middle-East where temperatures are only soaring at their peak and we resort to working out of chilled air-conditioned rooms that totally dehydrates our skin. This works well on normal to dry/sensitive skin. It restores the moisture in the skin by instantly settling into the skin and nourishing it. As it comes with hyaluronic acid it has anti-aging properties and benefits. It helps diminish the look of the first signs of aging while smoothing and refining skin’s appearance.

My favourites:

  1. Instant Moisture + Cream
  2. Whipped Cream Body Moisturizer
  3. Instant Nail & Cuticle Care

Look out for these products the next time you hop on to Sephora and I would love to hear from you about your experience with these. Hope you enjoyed reading the review!
