Sephora & Lulu's Kitchen

My Sephora package came today! I love getting packages, somehow knowing that a day is a package day just makes it feel a whole lot better, especially since my week has been cramped with work and little sleep.

I decided to make this haul because I got an email from Sephora advertising their Clinique Turnaround Bonus Set, which includes a full 1 Oz. sized Turnaround Concentrate Visible Skin Renewer, and two bonus sample sized Turnaround Instant Facial and Superdefense SPF 25 Age Defense Moisturizer. I've been wanting to try the skin renewer ever since Katie reviewed the product and claimed it as her all time HG in her skincare routine videos here. The reviews on Sephora are also all so great, with people claiming it to help smooth out the skin, reduce the appearance of pores, and brighten up complexions. With an 1 Oz. pump bottle costing $39.50 on Sephora, the Bonus Set turned out to be a great deal at $37.50, and comes with a cute makeup bag as well. I am hoping this new skincare will give me smoother skin and allow me to wave goodbye to dull complexion days. I've been troubled with some tiny pumps on my chin recently, hopefully this product will help to make them go away soon! Can't wait to try it! I also heard the instant facial is a great pick-me-up product to use once or twice a week. I've never tried too many Clinique products before, hopefully I'll like all of them because I am interested in trying out more of their products in the future! What are some of your favorite Clinique products that you think I should try out?

Also from my Sephora haul, I got the Clarins Sun Wrinkle Control Eye Contour Care SPF. I am almost running out on my favorite Shiseido sunscreen eye cream (see my June Favorites), so I decided to give the Clarins one a try and see which one I like better.

As an deluxe sample, I got an AmorePacific Treatment Enzyme Peel. It's suppose to be a gentle powder exfoliator that "refines and brightens skin". I can't wait to give this a try. I've never used any powdered face products before. By the way, isn't AmorePacific the same company that makes The FaceShop products?

Now onto Lulu's Kitchen -- some food from this week:

Meat loaf:
Hot Wings (they are baked in the oven instead of fried, but taste just as good! Super easy recipe too, if anyone wants it please let me know!):
And chicken feet! Don't look if you don't like to look at them, haha, I admit they don't look so great/appetizing, but they sure taste good! If you haven't tried chicken feet from a dim sum place, what are you waiting for! Go order some :)

  2. Hi Lulu!

    I'm drooling over all the yummy food pictures! The meat loaf and chicken wings look divine!

    Glad to hear that you got your Sephora package, I can't wait for your review for the Clinique Turnaround Concentrate. You got a good deal on the set too. ^^ I'm currently on my second bottle of the Clinique Mild Toner, it's very gentle because there is no alcohol but it still has s. acid for acne. I love it and it's cheap ($11). Looks like you got lots of good stuff to play with though. :)

    Please let me know what you think of the Clarins Sun Wrinkle Control Eye Contour Care SPF. I've been using the Shiseido eye sunscreen for a while. I'm almost done with my second tubes.

    I'm the opposite, I straighten my hair often.
