Hello beautiful people!

I started this week with some beauty news that I wanna share with you. Did you know that Derma E is getting new "clothing", I mean new packaging? OUT with the OLD, IN with the NEW!

The re-launch of their packaging design started a month ago, in September 2016 with the first lines, such as Hydrating, Anti Wrinkle, Firming and the best selling Microdermabrasion Scrub and Overnight Peel.
I am sure all those Derma E lovers spotted these new designs on the shelves already.

You need to know that this new design will roll out through March 2017 to be in all stores.
Now, if you are wondering if this new external change will bring alongside some internal changes as well, I am talking here about changes in the formula and ingredients that we love and use, you all need to know that, and here is what the brand has kindly provided me with some info:

"Our eco-ethical, non compromised formulas will not change in the repack. The same great formula, a fresh new look! To appeal 100% to our consumer, we are updating our look and feel in our brand too (notice on social sites, our website, in store and more). Based on our heritage, mission and values, that have not changed, our new brand look and feel is 100% Derma E."

So there's your piece of mind. Derma E promisses to stay true to its ethical beauty commitment:

"Since 1984, our passion for health, wellness and environmental sustainability has grown strong. We have high ethical standards and never compromise on skin health and safety. Our 100% vegan, cruelty-free formulas do not contain parabens, sodium lauryl sulfates, petrolatum, mineral oil, artificial colors, gluten, soy or GMO's."

If you are wondering how the new Derma E products look like, ladies and gentlemen, I give you the new packaging!

Derma E was kind enough to send me two of their products, the Hydrating Day Creme (in the old packaging) and the Hydrating Night Cream (in the new one), so I can show you the differences better.

On the left you see the old packaging, on the right the brand new one

Personally, I like this new packaging better, it looks great - it's clean and simple, classy and elegant, it's informative (provides you with on point information about any particular product highlighting Derma's E ethical beauty commitment). To me it gives that touch of a high-end product.

You can find your favorite Derma E products at stores like Target, ULTA, Whole Foods, Walgreens, GNC, CVS, Sally Beauty, just to name a few and many other local natural stores across the US.

What do you think? Do you like the new Derma E packaging?

Hello, hello beautiful people out there!

Long time no see, I mean "read" here on the blog. If you follow me via Instagram (and you totally should, it's fun and quite addictive, I must admit), you've noticed that I have been well, working hard, gone through a major hair color change (yes, I was for a while part of the "readheads" club) and some long/short hair situations, but never forgot you, my fellow beauty addicts around the world. I did miss writing here, I did miss talking to you guys, and we have a lot, I mean, A LOT to talk about.

Enought with this rambling, let's get down to the business, shall we?

One of my absolute favorite posts to read on a beauty blog is ... drum roll please ... A HAUL. And I was thinking, what better way to come back on the blog then with a HAUL post? No surprise there.

Beauty addicts out there gather around, this one is for you my darlings!

As a well respected beauty lover, can you think about one place that no matter how crazy your day has been, once you set a foot inside, it will cheer you up instantly? A place synonymous with "Wonderland"? A black and white strips kind of place? (wink-wink) Are you getting my clues? Yes, ladies and gentleman, I am talking about Sephora. Yes, you guessed it right, it's gonna be a Sephora haul.

On this particular occasion, I have decided to use up some of my points and get a pretty cool reward (an awesome one I might add). I am sure you know this, at Sephora for every dollar spent, you get a point that goes towards your "rewards account/bank". The more money you spend, the more points you have, the more rewards you can get. The more the merrier.

I have collected points for quite some time now and I was waiting and waiting to use them on something special, but the proper rewards never showed up until, a couple of weeks ago, when I got an e-mail about the "Rewards Bazaar" , I knew right on that instant I couldn't let this particular reward get away.

I am talking about the HOURGLASS FLAWLESS AMBIENCE SET which I scored and I must say, boy was I lucky, because there was such a battle to snatch this makeup set, that everything was gone, I mean SOLD OUT in about 4 minutes after being posted on the website. In the beginning, I thought I wasn't lucky enough to score it, as I was refreshing the page frantically and anxiously waiting for a confirmation e-mail.

The e-mail eventually came and I believe a happy dance was performed after.

Now let me show you what I have scored. Feast your eyes with these amazing goodies!

Everything came in this beautiful box

and as I opened it I have found the message down below

Hourglass, Sephora, makeup, haul

The goodies found inside are (from Left to Right):
  • 0.30 fl.oz./ 8.95 ml Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer
  • Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Face Palette 
  • 0.25 oz/ 7.5 ml Hourglass No. 28 Lip Treatment Oil in "Icon" 
  • 0.15 oz/ 4.5 g Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara

Let't take a better look at them!

These are my first Hourglass products and I am beyond excited to play with them. Let me know if you want me to review any of these products.
Please see my post from a humble perspective of an enthusiastic beauty lover, no bragging intended.

I hope you enjoyed my makeup HAUL!
