Sephora Hydration To Go Favorites Set

thumb_IMG_8831_1024   thumb_IMG_8838_1024

Hello Beauties! This blog post is an overview of the Sephora Favorites Hydration To Go. This skincare set features deluxe-size products that hydrate in 4 innovate ways: essence mist, facial mask, multi-purpose oil, and creamy balm. I already own 3 of the 4 products in this set so I was hesitant to purchase this. But of course, Sephora, really knows how to lure customers in! I had to purchase this set when I saw Sephora was having their double points promo for skincare products. I reasoned with myself that I would be getting 3 backup products that I already enjoy, get double points, and try out the mist that got me interested in this set, in the first place. If you like skincare you need to check this one out. This set is still available, so check out this review to see if you would like to pick one up for yourself! thumb_IMG_8833_1024

Sephora Favorites come nicely boxed.thumb_IMG_8834_1024

This is a square-shaped small box that is about 5.5″x5″ and fits nicely in the palm of my thumb_IMG_8835_1024

The products in this set are:

– 1 oz Amore Pacific Moisture Bound Skin Energy Hydration Delivery System
– 0.5 oz Glamglow Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment
– 0.5 oz Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil
– 0.25 oz Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformationthumb_IMG_8836_1024

Each product is nicely contained in its own compartment so it doesn’t shift around. As you can see pictured above, the back-side of the plastic molds nicely to hold each item. thumb_IMG_8849_1024

1 oz Amore Pacific Moisture Bound Skin Energy Hydration Delivery System

Review: At 1.0 FL. OZ/30ml you get a nice amount of product. I’m surprised because I expected this to be smaller. This travel-size product is contained in a chubby plastic bottle, it looks fancy too, and the very top of the cap has a reflective mirror so you can see your reflection.This is the biggest item out of the 4, and the main reason why I purchased this set. I use this after I cleanse and right before my face fully dries. Make sure to spritz this fine mist 6-8 inches away from your face. I also like to spray my beauty blender with this mist instead of heading to the bathroom to wet my sponge; this saves me a trip and preps my skin at the same time. thumb_IMG_8850_1024

What it is:

This oil-free, water-free pick-me-up immediately tones and energizes skin, counteracting chronic dehydration and enhancing delivery of treatment products. It works perfectly pre-makeup and as a post-makeup setting step.

-Aqua Sponge Complex™: Improves skin’s ability to bind water, preventing dehydration.
-Mineral and Amino Acid Blend: Increases skin’s defense against stress and the environment, promoting radiance and vitality.

0.25 oz Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation

Review: This is a lightweight, oil-free, silky whipped moisturizer; it also gently exfoliates to help fade dark spots. This is a potent treatment for your skin that I recommend only using at night even though the directions suggests using morning and night. This is the tiniest product in this set, it is contained in a glass jar, and it doesn’t have a pleasant scent which I don’t mind too much. thumb_IMG_8859_1024

What it is: 

“A potent blend of actiwhite™, licorice, and vitamin C help fade dark spots, even skintone, and prevent premature signs of aging while botanical fruit acids gently exfoliate and retexturize. The calming blend of sandalwood, geranium, and chamomile soothes, balances, and purifies the skin to minimize pores while glycerin lightly hydrates. Sugar cane and multifruit AHAs gently exfoliate to refine texture, even tone, and soften the look of fine lines as vitamin C brightens and provides antioxidant protection from environmental aggressors. Vitamin E heals, restores, and nourishes the skin, leaving you with a healthy-looking, smooth, refreshed complexion.”

0.5 oz Glamglow Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment

Review: This sample is the same size as the one sold in the deluxe-size tub which sells for $22. I find this one is more sanitary to use since it is contained in an easy to squeeze tube. The scent of this mask is between a cake batter mix and a caramel filling found in drugstore chocolates. It applies smoothly and drys quickly leaving skin feeling moisturized. The product remains on your face until you remove it. It doesn’t matter how long you have the product on for, which makes this a great overnight mask. It is not to be used under or over any other products.

What it is: 

“THIRSTYMUD™ uses the newest, most advanced, and extreme hydration active technologies. It moisturizes, restores, replenishes, and calms the skin. Dewdration™ boosts and locks in moisture for a dewy and youthful result while HydraPack™ leaves skin with an instant silky, soft, and supple feel. GreenEnergy™ smooths and energizes the skin, giving you a healthy-looking, glowing complexion.”

Main Ingredients: 

-Dewdration™: A blend of actives containing hyaluronic acid and citric acid for deep hydration; boosts and locks in moisture for a dewy, youthful look.
-Hydrapack™: A blend of actives containing botanimoist, moisturizing sugars and acids from apples, oat bete glucan to soothe and calm the skin, and hydraclay to trap and retain moisture in the skin.

0.5 oz Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil

Review: The only ingredient in this is organic Argan Oil which I love! The oil is contained in a glass jar with a dropper so you can control the amount of product you want. It smells slightly nutty but not too strong. It doesn’t feel greasy at all, absorbs into skin quickly, non-sticky, and makes your skin feel soft.

What it is:

“This legendary, 100 percent pure Argan Oil is rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids to deeply hydrate and nourish skin. Grown organically in Morocco, the multitasking formula contains astonishing healing, conditioning, and antiaging properties to create a nourished, youthful-looking complexion. It easily absorbs into skin, delivering a fresh, dewy glow, and keeps you looking beautiful from head to toe. Great for all skin types including sensitive and acne-prone skin, it may also be used to treat split ends and soften cuticles.”

Overall:This is really nice to use during the winter months when your skin is a bit more dehydrated. The oil is perfect for hair, skin, and nails. The facial mask is good to use as an overnight sleeping mask to rehydrate your skin. The 2 in 1 sheer transformation balm is a special treatment that can be used day or night to moisturize and exfoliate. The facial mist is nice to have to freshen up throughout the day when your skin needs a little pick me up whether with or without makeup. I am enjoying this set and I recommend this set if you are into skincare!

Thanks for reading!
