Paula's Choice Beauty Haul: Skincare & Makeup! #crueltyfree

I have a Paula's Choice haul to share with you today! I've been meaning to share this for such a long time. I left everything in the box, untouched as I wanted to share it with you here before I start using the products... so let's just get right into it.

Still in the box that it arrived it waiting for this haul. It's like Christmas! Can't wait to dig into everything.

Skin Recovery Replenishing Moisturizer

Skin Recovery Replenishing Moisturizer
This is the only item in the order that I have used before. It's a great hydrator. I have combo/oily skin that is dehydrated and my skin loved this cream. It doesn't have SPF so I use it at nighttime. It works great over serums and my Retin-A

Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask

Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask
I am probably most excited to try this mask. I used to use a lot of drying/clay type masks which I still use but now I will apply a hydrating moisturizer (like this one) after a clay mask. Since I found out my skin is dehydrated I really love to drench my skin in moisture. The mask was on promo and came FREE with my order!

Best Face Forward Foundation

Best Face Forward Foundation SPF 25 (Normal, oily, combo)
I chose this foundation in the colour Best Champagne Beige and it's perfect for my slightly tanned skin right now. I'm so glad it has SPF 25 in it. It says it leaves a silky matte finish. I can't wait to see how this wears.

Resist Instant Smoothing Satin Finish Powder

Packaging a tad bulky as it has a fan style brush stored in the bottom. (I could really do without that).

Resist Instant Smoothing Satin Finish Powder in Light/ Medium
For some reason when I ordered this I thought it was going to be a loose powder not a compact. It was on sale for about $6, so I couldn't resist!

Blush it On Contour Palette

Blush It On Contour Palette (Limited Edition)
This palette contains 1 highlighter, 1 bronzer, and 4 blushes in the colours- Pearl, Bronze, Delicate Coral, Dusty Rose, Peony, and Soft Mauve. The blushes are all supposed to have a matte finish.

It looks beautiful! However, I haven't even swatched it yet as I might give it away. I haven't decided yet, it's just that I have a lot of blush and bronzers already. Although, I do really like these types of palettes that contain several types of products in one palette as they are so convenient.

***Update- I decided to give away this palette! So if you are reading this before July 6, 2016, go enter to win this and more! Canada Day Giveaway linked here. (open to USA & Canada).

Free Samples

Free Samples
As with any Paula's Choice order, you get to choose free samples. I received 4 skincare samples and 4 shades to sample of the All Bases Covered Foundation to test out.

Free booklets

Free Booklets
20 Beauty Myths Busted, as well as how to put together a skincare routine, and a fall + winter catalogue (I told you this was ordered a while back.. lol).

This entire order was a total of $46.61 which includes taxes and free shipping. I recommend signing up for their emails to find out about when you can score the best deals. I was able to stack several different promotional codes for free items, free shipping as well as discounts.

If you'd like $10 off your first order just click HERE (order must be a minimum of $15).

I love that Paula's Choice is cruelty-free and they put a lot of research into their products. Paula's Choice website is also an awesome resource for information on beauty products by many brands. They rate them with explanations as to why they are good or not and have reviews.

If you'd like a review on any of these products, just leave a comment and I'll be happy to do so.
