Makeover your skin with Sephora Inside JCPenney

Makeover your skin with Sephora Inside JCPenney #SephorainJCP #SoWorthIt
I am a skin care fanatic. In fact, here I am below. This skin gets taken care of at least three times per day every single day without fail. I care about my skin that much.
I always have several of my favorite skincare products on hand at home and I use them frequently. I am constantly reading about the latest in skincare and I do love trying new products so I was thrilled to partner with Sephora Inside JCPenney to do an in-store visit for some fabulous skincare.
You might remember how I shared that I was heading to Sephora Inside JCPenney to get a personal skincare consultation from their Area Education Manager, Melissa. Here I am a few days before my consultation.
With red hair, fair skin and freckles, I have to be a fanatic about my skincare routine. This type of skin tends to show age much faster. In fact, I even have all three of my kids taking care of their skin twice a day. I am teaching them good habits now.
Visiting Sephora Inside JCPenney
As soon as I entered the store, I was greeted enthusiastically by Melissa, the Sephora Inside JCPenney Area Education Manager, who shared that she saw my social shares and she read my blog. She really did her homework and knew exactly what type of skin I had so she started out recommending products based on a few brands.
She asked me some great questions about things what I like about texture of a product, what type of product do I prefer and in what form and do I like fragrance or not? She was great about really narrowing down things I would love versus products that I really needed. Melissa explained that I was getting a mini facial and then showed me the products she had chosen. Melissa then explained that she would cleanse, use a mask, hydrate my skin and then we would follow with a cream for my skin.

The facial lasted about 20 minutes while Melissa shared what she was doing step-by-step and explained why she chose each product. I had such a wonderful visit and I could tell a difference in my skin immediately. My skin looked brighter and it was so much smoother. My skin is still soft and looks great three days later.
This experience was 100% worth the trip and I really wish I had purchased all of the products. I specifically purchased and brought home: 2, 8, 9 and 11. I wish I had gotten these as well and they are already in my online cart: 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 10. That is everything except #1 and I opted to skip that because I have several cleansers that I like and several in the queue to test out.
Soy Face Cleanser
Fresh Soy Face Cleanser is a bestselling, do-it-all cleanser and makeup remover that whisks away impurities without stripping the skin of essential moisture. This is nice, light cleanser that did its job.

Origins Drink Up™ 10 Minute Mask to Quench Skin’s Thirst is a rich mask to quench skin’s thirst. This 10-minute mask features algae extracts that deliver an extra helping of hydration while emollient-rich apricot kernel oil leaves skin soft and supple. This is my new skincare love affair. The second Melissa put it on me, I told her that I was buying it. It is thick and luxurious. The product sits on your skin for a few minutes and then shows where your face needed the most moisture.

Ok so here is what I look like in this eye mask. Fancy, right?
Facial Cotton provides an extremely soft, gentle way to apply liquid skin care products. This product is 100% natural, allows for maximum absorption and is uniquely manufactured for a consistent soft, smooth texture.
These things are like pillows. They were so soft, wet and cool (the water was cool which I liked). Melissa used these to clean my face and I love the feel. I immediately planned to buy them. I made everyone at home try them that evening. They all agree that these cotton pads are amazing.
FIRMx™ Peeling Gel
FIRMx™ Peeling Gel is a unique peeling gel that visibly exfoliates by rolling, lifting, and sweeping away when massaged onto the skin as a result of physical and enzymatic mechanisms. This is a great solution for those with dryness, visible pores, dullness and uneven skin texture. She put some of this on my hands and I could instantly see that my skin had been exfoliated. My skin felt so soft after rinsing with water.
Hand Mask is from the line of hand care treatments, each with a different benefit, that offers 15 minutes of pure bliss. Simply slip on a single pair of non-drip, coated gloves and your hands will taken care of as you continue on with your day.
