Sephora Visit

While my trip to Toronto was mainly for apartment viewings for my boyfriend, I was able to talk him into allowing me to visit my favourite store Sephora (and a few…okay, a lot of others! haha)

Sephora was a quick visit since I really do have more than enough makeup for the time being. I have a backup, a second backup, and often a third backup of everything I possibly need right now.

So I went into the store with a problem I needed help with….ever since I went off of birth control about six months ago, I have had under the skin bumps on my forehead. Ugh. They aren’t acne….no, because acne you can fix. They never fully come to, and I’ve found it impossible to do anything about!

Discussing my problem with a Sephora skin specialist, she recommended First Aid Beauty’s Natural Radiance Pads to be used in replace of a toner. While at first I was worried since I have sensitive skin and the lactic and glycolic acids along with the use of lemon peel sounded harsh for my skin, she let me know this product is actually designed to be safe for those with sensitivity. She let me know it is suppose to reach 6 layers down, and if anything could reach those bumps its this.

Soooooo I purchased the smaller package and have decided to give’r a try! Any of you tried this product? Has it worked for you? I’ll be putting it to the test and once I am done the 28 pads I’ll write a review!

  1. I’m not using these, but in my current beauty routine there’s an acid toner as well and for the moment I can tell AHA acids are not harsh at all if used in small %. On the contrary, they help improve the natural beauty of the skin. It’s not that common, by the way, to get a useful recommendation by Sephora. Most of the shop assistants working there push only the sell out of pricey / trendy stuff, you’ve been really lucky. 😉

    • I just have very sensitive skin so sometimes the word ‘acid’ is just a trigger for me from the get go haha but you’re right it has potentially to improve so I am excited to try it.

      I always take what the specialists have to say with a grain of salt. I had read up a bit about First Aid Beauty previously, and decided to just go for the smaller package to give it a try before really spending the big bucks, so I can see what I am in for! 🙂

      Thanks for the comment! 😀

      • I agree with everything you said. I’ve a sensitive skin as well and tend to buy travel kits or try sets before investing my budget on something totally new. I’ll check these pads as well…
