Believe it or not, it’s that glorious time of the year again…a Sephora Sale is here! Yes, that’s right. There’s a Beauty Insider Appreciation Sale in August instead of the usual early November VIB time frame. No one seems certain if this is a replacement sale time, or an additional sale. I’m hoping for the later…I think! 😉 Given the unexpected discount season, I thought I would share some of my Cruelty Free Recommendations for the sale. So we’ll start with the recommendations, and end with the boring sale details – there’s an unusual restriction this time around that I haven’t heard many mention that may affect your purchasing, so I’ll explain that. So, without further ado, let’s get into it!
Today we’re left with all of the miscellaneous stuff I loved in 2017 that didn’t really require their own categories. These are still cruelty free “beauty” products in some way, with one entirely unrelated exception. I’m not going to ramble on because, as you know by now, these can get pretty long. And now…I bring you The Other Stuff!
Ok. Obligatory “month flew by” blogger intro here. I seriously don’t even remember November starting! I swear time is flying so fast all the time and I’m starting to wonder if it’s just age relative to time. Whatever the case, it’s been another month of not a lot of makeup and when I’m wearing it, I’ve been testing out new products (thanks Sephora VIB sale). That said, the cruelty free favorites I do have from the month are good. On a more personal note, Thanksgiving was fantastic, though I nearly lost it at crunch time! 😂 And I had no time to properly dress for the event! It was the same as always – just me and my parents, and the past few years I’ve “prepared” everything – Veggie for me, meat for the ‘rents. Nothing fancy and nothing new. If you’re curious why so small, not a lot of extended family lives close by…of the few that remain…and I’m an only child which makes for small gatherings. I really like it that way and since I enjoy my parents’ company, it’s always an enjoyable experience…horrible near-genocidal historical origin aside. Side note…anyone seen that Thanksgiving episode of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”? First year of college I believe when Buffy hosts the festivities? Classic Buffy awesomeness! 💖 Anyway, I do have some non-makeup cruelty free favorites despite all of my disclaimers there – mostly skin care with a few others for good measure. Since November is over, I thought it time to share them with you today!
Ok. I know it’s clichéd, but where the bloody hell did October go?! For one, it’s only felt like Autumn for a few days of the month. What’s up with that? (Since I wrote this about 2 weeks ago, Fall has definitely arrived.) The leaves are just starting to turn. Also weird. (Again, two weeks ago….) I think perhaps there’s some kind of trick being played on me and it’s actually still September. 😂 Who’s with me? (The me from 2 weeks ago. 😉) All of that is irrelevant to this post though because it’s time for some Cruelty Free October Favorites!!! It’s been yet another month of trying to figure out what I really like on my unnaturally dried out everything. I’ll undoubtedly figure it out just as my skin reverts to its former self. 😂 Despite my trials and tribulations in the complexion realm, there are still plenty of things I’ve been loving. Without further ado, let’s jump into the Favorites!
