The Best Ways I've Learned To Shop At Sephora

With Black Friday and Christmas around the corner it's important to know how to shop smart.  November and December are the best months to do all your shopping. I love all the Christmas and Cyber Monday deals. While the deals are no doubt incredible, there are some even better ways to shop at Sephora and save even more money! Here are some of the best ways to shop smart at Sephora:

  1. Earn Cash Back:
Most people don’t know they can earn cash back when shopping online. If you do most of your shopping online like me, this can be a great money saver. I like to use a website called Swagbucks to do all my online shopping. You can get 4% cashback when you shop at Sephora. The great thing about it is that it works on a bunch of other sites too. Amazon offers 6% cash back. You get your cash back in points called “Swagbucks” and if you save up enough you can redeem for gift card, paypal ect. I have actually redeemed my point for Sephora gift cards before. There are other ways to earn Swagbucks, but this way was the easiest for me.

  1. Shop Numerous Stores At Once
A great new app I recently found helps shop numerous stores at once. Instead of checking out and paying for shipping multiple times, this app actually combines them all in one cart and you get free shipping. The app is called Dote Shopping. It has made online shopping so much easier for me. Plus when you first sign up you get $5 credit with the code QTX3!

  1. Buy It Used
Okay I know “used makeup” sounds really gross, but it’s not as bad as you think. I mean “used” as in someone is selling their makeup. There are some products that are slightly swatched and those are the ones I aim for. Honestly this tip has helped me save so much money. I use the app Poshmark to buy some of the higher end products at discounted prices. Besides the fact that I get makeup and other stuff discounted, Poshmark also has great customer service. You get expedited shipping and it’s insured. They are strict on what people are selling and your experience with them so I’m always happy and feel safe when I order from them.  My code BETTYTURNER365 can get you $5 and you can use it to get free shipping. For some people, when they use my code they get $10 so it varies.

The great thing about these sites is that they don’t only apply to makeup. You can get perfume, clothes, accessories, ect! Plus you use these tricks all year round, but since Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Christmas are all happening now’s the best time to get started on your shopping! So go ahead and treat yo’ self!

5 Signs Your Hair Is Damaged

Raise your hand if you have damaged hair 

It's okay, I feel your pain. Damaged hair is embarrassing. But how do you know if your hair is damaged? Here are 5 signs you should look out for to know the damage has been done.

1) Check your pillow

         -If your pillow has small pieces of hair on it , chances are your hair is either damaged or it's getting there. If the pieces are long, your hair is just falling out but damaged hair is fragile hair and breaks apart and onto your pillow. Try getting a silk pillow cover instead of cotton so your pillow is gentler on your hair.

2) Your hair stretches

        -That's right stretches and rips. Take a piece of hair and pull it apart.  If your hair snaps after stretching a little it needs more moisture. If it stretches more than usual and then breaks it needs more protein. This is cause from pulling your hair and putting a lot of tension of it such as putting it in tight ponytails or being too rough on it when you flat iron your hair. Give your hair a break and try a deep treatment for your hair.

3) Running your fingers through your hair is a problem
        - Rough texture screams damaged hair. Smooth and soft hair is full of moisture so it's easy to run your fingers through your hair. But if your hair rough and brittle, you should be the one running and grabbing every hair treatment. Apply olive oil to your hair to add more shine and moisture. A healthy and balanced diet is also essential for your hair.

4) Brushing it is a workout

         - Healthy and strong hair is easy to detangle but damaged hair has two ingredients: tangles and knots. Using cheap, plastic brushes rather than those with nylon bristles will tear at your head and leave your hair in a tangled mess.

5) Split ends everywhere
     -Okay, maybe not everywhere, but they're there. Split ends are the worst and are the number one sign of damaged hair. (They're what make the hair damaged-duh). Split ends occur for a number of reasons; frying whether it's a flat iron or blow dryer, too much exposure to the sun, not enough protein and being to rough on it. Protect the ends of your hair with a bun or trim off your splits. If you're growing out your hair, you don't have to do a fully chop, just at least one inch. Also, focus on conditioning or deep hair masks on your ends. If you don't cut the breakage, or try to repair them, they will worsen.

Another red alert for damaged hair is it lost its texture. If you no longer have those gorgeous curls or it's just a bunch of kinks in all direction, I hate to break it to you but you're hair is damaged. If you don't believe me maybe Ariana Grande can convince you. Remember when Ariana said her hair is so damaged it's not curly anymore? Then when she did a couple of hair treatments, stopped styling and poof! They came back! It's all subtle hints your hair is trying to give you before you completely fry your hair. 

It's important to give your hair a breaking once in a while and ease off on the heat and tension.

How To Test Out Products For Review

Getting free stuff sounds great doesn't it? You hear it all the time how bloggers can get free stuff in an exchange for a review. While there a couple different way you can do that, I'm gonna show you one easy and fun way to test out products. PinchMe is a monthly service where you get a box filled with goodies. The great part is it's all completely free and all you have to do is write a review on the products. That's it! I was lucky enough to be sent a premium box and I am so excited to share what I got and how you can get the same thing.

PinchMe Review

So you've signed up and get an inbox saying you're gonna receive box, now what? Well, to start off not everyone is guaranteed a box, but you do have a good chance of getting one. Also sipping was actually pretty fast it took it about a week or so to get to me. Once you're approved for a box you'll receive one much like the one in the photo above. Keep in my mind that my box is premium so you won't get exactly what I'm getting. 

Once your box arrives now comes the fun part: The Goodies! I got so many wonderful goodies, some from brands I've heard of and others were new to me. These were all of the goodies I got (I also got a coupon!)

Displaying FullSizeRender.jpgI got two SlimFast snacks. One was a bag of sour cream and onion chips with only 100 calories and another was a chocolate smoothie that helps suppress your appetite. I have never tried these nor have I heard of them but the chips had a lot of flavor and chocolate shake surprisingly held me down for a couple of hours. I also got this V.I Poo spray, which if I'm correct is an air freshener for your toilet. You basically just spray it in and stink-no-more! It had a fruity smell to it and I'm surprised I've never heard of this before. One of the funnest parts about PinchMe is trying new products.

My box also came with an Olay body wash and a nail polish from Essie. Essie was one of the first nail polish brands I ever tried out so I was happy to see I got one in my box. The Olay body wash smelled so good and I've used it once so far and it was actually really good. The cold weather has been so harsh for my skin and this really helped quench its thirst. The last products in my box was a lip gloss and eyeliner from Covergirl,a coupon for a Covergirl mascara and samples of Covergirl's tru foundation.

Overall, you get a couple of makeup goodies, some coupons and miscellaneous products. If you don't get approved for a box, no worries! There's always next monnth and they also have some awesome coupons on their site you can check out! So what are you waiting for? Sign up here
