Sephora Favorites Power of the Petal Reviews 2016
Peter Thomas Roth Rose Stem Cell Bio‐Repair Cleansing Gel | Full size $38
A regenerating facial cleansing gel with reparative rose stem cells, rose extracts, and glycolic acid to gently cleanse as it helps repair the signs of aging.
With state-of-the-art breakthrough stem cell technology, rose stem cells are blended with rose extracts to help repair visible signs of aging, including the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, skin texture, and dullness. It effectively clears skin of impurities and sweeps away dead surface skin cells that can dull the complexion.

-Glycolic Acid (AHA): elps to exfoliate dead surface skin cells and support natural cellular turnover.
IcanGWP Review: If you have tried and love Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel from Sephora Birthday Gift 2015, you will likely like this one as well. It is a rose scent gel cleanser. It smells fantastic (not syntactic for me). You only need a bit because it leathers really well and produces a lot of foam. This cleanser contains AHA and that is good for skin turnover (but mild enough for me). I don’t feel dryness or skin tightening. This product is great if you want to try AHA cleanser but don’t want to buy a full-sized product. It is very well thought of people who curated this Sephora Favorites. I will enjoy using this product throughout this Spring (season appropriate). It may dry out skin too much in winter. If you have sensitive eyes, I would recommend to avoid that area. The average review is 4.2. People really love using it with Clarisonic. Also, it seems to be liked by people who fighting acne problems.
See all Peter Thomas Roth 3 mask minis or 5 mask minis are must-try items! Peter Thomas Roth also offers one of the best serum on the market: Peter Thomas Roth Neuroliquid™ Volufill™ Youth Serum $120. You can see my full review from my post here. Here is a short version.
IcanGWP Review: It is a re-purchase product so I can tell you my personal experience. I was lucky to be able to splurge on it. At first, I was curious and wanted to see if I feel better than cheaper products that would be just as effective. This is not an ordinary serum and I will tell you why I think so.
The ingredients are top notches: 19 amino acids (YES, you get what you pay), 5 peptides, 3 collagens, hyaluronic acid and more. No color, fragrance or alcohol. Anyone 25 and up reading this? There are tons of research studies confirmed that these ingredients will “contribute” in new collagen building process. It has watery and not greasy texture. It took time but I have obvious glow that only me noticed it but also people around me. So I will keep purchasing this product, highly recommend!
An oil-free, lightweight moisturizer that nourishes skin as it gently exfoliates and fades dark spots.
Skin feels fresh, healthy, and bright with this lightweight moisturizer’s silky whipped texture that melts into skin. A potent blend of actiwhite™, licorice, and vitamin C help fade dark spots, even skintone, and prevent premature signs of aging while botanical fruit acids gently exfoliate and retexturize. The calming blend of sandalwood, geranium, and chamomile soothes, balances, and purifies the skin to minimize pores while glycerin lightly hydrates. Sugar cane and multifruit AHAs gently exfoliate to refine texture, even tone, and soften the look of fine lines as vitamin C brightens and provides antioxidant protection from environmental aggressors. Vitamin E heals, restores, and nourishes the skin, leaving you with a healthy-looking, smooth, refreshed complexion.
IcanGWP Review: I tested out the Sheer transformation brightening moisturizer before in this post: Unboxing & Mini-review Sephora MIXITUP 12pc sample bag (DEC 2015). It is indeed very sheer and has no smell. For those who usually not getting along well with AHA, you may give this product a try. This product is a very nice and gentle AHA + Vitamin C product to begin with. There are over 1700 reviews on Sephora and people like this set so much.
You can browse Ole Henriksen products here. They have many cleansing cloth options for $8. Three little wonders are also very nice set.

Boscia Tsubaki Beauty Oil | Full size $36 Sephora Exclusive
An antiaging botanical blend that works to provide serious hydration and protection against free radical damage for all skin types.
Tsubaki Beauty Oil hydrates and replenishes, leaving skin smoother, softer, and more supple. An excellent source of fatty and omega 3 acids, this soothing oil prevents premature signs of aging by defending the skin against free radical damage. Wakame (Japanese sea kelp) repairs past damage by replenishing protein and helps support natural collagen production. Rice bran oil restores the look of skin for a glowing, gorgeous complexion with its lightweight, non-greasy texture.
Tsubaki (Camellia) oil has been an essential part of Japanese beauty rituals for centuries. Japanese women, well-known for their flawless skin, would traditionally nourish and protect their skin with native Tsubaki oil, which is naturally fast-absorbing, hypoallergenic, and always non-comedogenic. In addition to its potent skin care benefits, Camellia oil is responsible for the iconic smoothness of the geisha and samurai hairstyles of the past.
-Apply two to three drops in the morning prior to makeup or at night.
-Blend with your moisturizer or foundation for instantly visible radiance.
IcanGWP Review: Average review is 4.5. I rarely try any product from Boscia. I am excited to try this product. If you love beauty oil and wonder what Camellia oil could do for you, you can give product a try. It has very light floral scent and it is surprisingly lightweight. This oil absorbs very well and doesn’t leave shine on my skin – just enough dewy look. I agree with most reviewer that it is odd that this oil doesn’t cause any breakout compared to normal oil.
You can try Black Charcoal Pore Perfection Set $10, Multi-Masking Medley Set $16 or other Boscia products here.
L’Occitane Pivoine Sublime Skin Perfecting Cream | Full size $42
A multitasking moisturizer to help skin feel intensely hydrated, smooth, and soft and to reduce the look of pores, fine lines, and imperfections.
Reveal flawless-looking, radiant skin with the Pivoine Sublime Perfecting Cream. The L’Occitane Laboratory has developed the pivoine sublime complex, combining skin-perfecting peony extract and mineral-based optical correctors to boost radiance. Rich in natural plant sugars, the patented* peony extract acts on skin cells to help visibly correct complexion and texture irregularities. This smooth formula is enriched with shea butter and provides up to 24-hour hydration. Pores seem tightened, skin texture looks visibly smoothed and refined, and fine lines and imperfections seem reduced. *Patent pending in France.
IcanGWP Review: Average review is 4.8! That’s the highest rank in this set. You either love it and can’t live without it or don’t like its scent. This flowery fragrance cream has very beautiful packaging. Its texture & color is like strawberry yogurt! It seems light but once applied it is very hydrating with zero shine.
Caudalie Premier Cru The Eye | Full size $99
An antiaging cream to refresh the eye area.
This luxurious cream offers ultimate antiaging action for instantly transformed eyes. Perfectly hydrated, the skin is smoother and firmer. Dark circles and puffiness fade away and the eye area is brightened with renewed youth.
Caudalie’s three signature patents are blended at their highest concentration for unparalleled age-fighting power: Resveratrol-Oleyl for lifting and firming, Viniferine for brightening, and antioxidant-rich grape-seed Polyphenols.
IcanGWP Review: This eye cream texture is like a beige fluffy whipping cream. I have to warm it a bit so that it will absorb better. It brightens my eyes (contains mica). This eye cream would be a great option for normal to dry skin (not sensitive because it contains some fragrance). Finding your right eye cream can be quite pricey, I am happy Sephora includes an eye cream in this set. This sample alone costs as much as the entire kit. The average review is 4.2. Only flaw is that people really don’t like the pump that comes with the full size bottle.
Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Essence | Full size $89
A moisturizing toner for smooth, healthy-looking skin.
Hydrating Floral Essence boosts the skin’s natural hydration with bioidentical hyaluronic acid and a weightless blend of natural humectants, delivering an all-day moisturized feel and plump appearance. Suitable for use on top of makeup, this formula improves and refreshes skin, and is ideal for delivering antiaging hydration on the go.
The formulation is powered by 19 high-performance ingredients, including biocompatible hyaluronic acid, which supports hydration where it matters most for long-lasting moisture and a more plump appearance; gotu kola, which promotes visibly firmer looking skin; and rose and lavender hydrosols, which continuously draw moisture to the skin.
-Shake well before every use.
-Spray four to five times over face and neck.
-Use daily after cleansing.
-May be used as often as needed to boost hydration, including over makeup.
Tata’s tip: “Keep it in your clutch or makeup bag and use anytime for instant hydration and radiance.”
IcanGWP review: I am glad Sephora includes Tata Harper in the kit. Two thumps up for Tata Harper for giving us this toner. It is so rare for any brand to offer toner sample. It is house in a spray bottle. This product is a multi-tasking: toner and hydrating mist. I shake it well and spray it on cotton pad and then apply to my face after face wash. Very refreshing. Average review is 4. Low score comes from its smell. Some people love it and some people think it smell horrible. For me, it smells like a mix of witch hazel, floral and lavender.
See all Tata Harper here. Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser is Allure best of Beauty award winner 2015. Tata Harper Volumizing Lip & Cheek Tint (online only) is also a best selling product from this brand.
Fresh Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask | Full size is $92
A hydrating treatment that immediately reveals softer, firmer, healthier-looking skin.
Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask with advanced antioxidants is a hydrating treatment that immediately reveals softer, firmer, healthier-looking skin. The innovative formula’s velvety whipped texture has an immediate cooling effect to refresh the skin and the senses. Black tea ferment, also known as Kombucha, is an advanced antioxidant that helps to defend against wrinkle-causing free radicals while softening, smoothing, and enhancing luster. The formula is further enriched with lychee seed extract, known to support natural collagen, firming polysaccharides that help to smooth the skin, and jicima root juice, notable for its hydrating and nourishing properties.
IcanGWP Review: This mask texture is like nothing else. It is like you whipped up cream+gelly. When you applying and rubbing this product, it is such a unique experience. It is some magic mystery formula from Fresh, you just have to try it. It was nice and refreshing. Average review is 4.3. Most reviewer recommend to use this mask for softening. Many reviewers leave it overnight and love it.
What I thought?
I purchased this Sephora Favorites right the way. I have combination skin. I think that it is a great set for spring not too heavy or light products. Great for transition from winter to summer. I always want to try Boscia and Tata Harper skincare too. I use these products for 6 days and no breakouts, no peel, no extra shine at all. I cannot tell if my skin is improving is such a short period of time but it is promising. I am impressed with the glowing skin I am getting from this kit. You can get it for $32.3 with 15% off coupon or $34.2 with 10% off coupon. For a $100 worth of skincare, this Sephora Favorites Power of the Petal is a good option if you want to try famous brands skincare! If you are using any product in this set regularly, you can stock up travel size at this great price too.
