Space NK Spring Beauty Edit 2018 Review
SUNDAY RILEY Saturn Sulfur Acne Treatment Mask Review 1 oz ($10 value)– full size $55
A fast-acting, medicated 10 percent sulfur treatment mask that helps fight multiple forms of acne while preventing future breakouts.
IcanGWP Review: The refreshing green mask has a nice smooth texture. I like that she doesn’t try to cover sulfur with fragrance and it does smell like it. I applied it to the T-zone and left it until they are dry. It wasn’t stinging, tightening or burning. I use a soft damp wash cloth to scrub out death skin and I love the result. I can see why Sunday Riley is a cult favorite brand. It works and you can see the visibly healthier skin. At this moment, I don’t have any acne but all clogged pores and whiteheads are completely taken care of beautifully. I will definitely use it as a spot treatment if I have some breakout next time. It’s not the most gentle product but if you are battling acne and want to try an alternative products before jumping to prescription that could have long term adverse effects, give this a try.
BARBARA STURM Face Cream Review 20ml ($86 value) – Full size $215 for regular and $230 for rich
A unique, firming 24-hour women’s face cream that will ensure your complexion is radiant even without makeup, an effect that is visible immediately after application.
IcanGWP Review: If you haven’t heard of Dr. Barbara Sturm, you’ve probably heard about her signature – the Vampire Facial. I hate to say it, because of the whopping price tag, that I love it – my most favorite item in the bag so far!
The orthopedics is specialized in a procedure that involves using the patient’s own blood cells to produce proteins that help reduce inflammation and stimulate the healing process. She believes that less is more, say no to – acids, alcohol, retinoids, fragrances or mineral oils. She has mentioned that there are 1,500 ingredients that are allowed for use in the US but not Europe. Her products target the inner level of skin with the finest ingredients that are scientific proven to function. If you admire her motto, you’d admire her cream.
I like that it’s odorless, with a light dreamy texture. It goes on like silk and it absorbs right away. Something I want to reapply just to see how much it can melt and disappear into my skin. This product is really good for pre-makeup application! I don’t know the long term results yet but it’s pleasing to use this $215 cream sample.
There are three products from this brand that receive five-star average reviews from Space NK USA, Face Cream Rich, Mask and Glow Drops.
111SKIN Space Anti Age Day Cream NAC Y2 Review 0.5 oz ($79 value) – Full size $270
This rich Day Cream protects the skin from environmental damage and stimulates collagen production. The vitamin, antioxidant and Hyaluronic Acid infused formula strengthens, plumps and revitalizes the complexion while keeping the skin hydrated and nourished.
IcanGWP Review: This beautiful rich day cream is recommended for anyone with normal to dry skin types. The 111 Skin Space Cream is often compared to Crème de La Mer – space vs deep sea! In fact, this cream contains excellent emollient and skin-replenishing ingredients. And they are gentle + smell wonderful. The powerhouse 111SKIN Space collection has the brand’s patented NAC Y2 complex of antioxidant rich trios that was originally discovered and utilized in space research to combat the rapid signs of aging that affect astronauts.
The texture is a liquified oil-emulsion. Don’t overdo it like me, you’ll just need a tiny bit. The finish is way lighter than La Mer. I’m pleased with the glowy, dewy and perfect plump skin. Wait a few minutes to let it soak in before applying sunscreen. Don’t wait to use this sample in spring or summer time. It is a perfect addition to your winter regimen. I highly recommend this product together as a cohesive skincare regimen with 111Skin Space Defence Bright Eye Lift Gel NAC Y2 (reviewed here) which makes its way to my hall of fame already. One caveat is the scent, I’m not into it, but this is personal.
SMITH AND CULT The Shining Lip Lacquer in Her Name Bubbles Review 0.08 ($10 value) – Full size $22
A lip gloss with innovative color and a brilliantly glossy finish. Portulaca pilosa extract plumps up your lips and pumps up moisture and volume while natural coconut essence emulsifies and smoothes.
IcanGWP Review: If you are looking for a premium lip treatment/lip balm that provides a polished look, non-sticky and is pretty awesome for improving your skin, this is the one. This luxe lip balm has super skin nourishing ingredients with sheer glossy color. I love that this formula is non-sticky and moisturizing. It can instantly cover dry lips while giving a luxury look all in one.
Her Name Bubblies shade appears nude and pearlized on the lips. It gives a beautiful nude luminous that looks fantastic, healthy and youthful. It helps my lips look fuller and my skin appears more tanned. This shade has very low pigment.
They are offering several shades with higher pigment, more opaque or with gold flecks or shimmer, check it out! If you’re into ombre style lips, this is a must-try item (use concealer, tint and top with this item in the inner part). I think it will enhance thin lips really well and it can be used as a lip topper too.
OMOROVICZA Cleansing Foam Review 1 fl oz ($16 value) – Full size $80
A hydrating daily face cleanser that visibly minimizes pores, removes impurities, and balances oil.
IcanGWP Review: Omorovicza featured ingredient is the Hungarian Thermal Water from the famed baths in Hungary (you know that Yoda speaks Hungarian?). The brand patented Hydro Mineral Transference is claimed to be able to get into the deeper skin.
The package and lid is really chic. Omorovicza has a luxurious feminine scent. It creates delicate mouse foam that is wonderfully soft and relaxing with citrus hint. My skin is nicely cleansed and looks a little bit brighter. There are fair amount of cleansing agents and also a lot of fragrance components. My combination skin is borderline tight. You may spare this one for spring/summer.
If you want to explore more Omorovicza products that distil 2,000 years of Hungarian skin care tradition and mix with cutting-edge technological advances in their Nobel Prize winning laboratory see entire Omorovicza products at Space NK here.
OUAI HAIRCARE Dry Shampoo Spray Review 1.4 oz ($12 value) – Full size $24
Neutralise product build-up and oil with Ouai Dry Shampoo, a haircare product perfect for days between hair washing to easily freshen up your look. This formula revives yesterday’s hair while imparting a light, airy scent.
IcanGWP Review: First of all, I wish that it’s the Ouai Dry Shampoo Foam – the buzziest item. The high performance haircare brand lives up its name. Not only the distinctive formula but also the bottle. The spray generates from this package is ultra fine and very cold. Unlike most dry shampoo where you can feel the white heavy starch that cover the oil to neutralized it. This dry shampoo doesn’t add any weight to the hair. No corn starch, YAY!! It simply makes my hair looks like I just washed it. No extra volume that you can’t comb through or weird scent that forces you to wash it that night. Just silky hair and refreshing shampoo scent. Quite a special for dry shampoo. It helps my dark color, fine, oily hair tremendously.
A detoxifying shampoo enriched with sea salt to deeply cleanse and soothe sensitive and/or oily scalps while delivering essential hydration to the scalp.
IcanGWP Review: The jar contains a white paste with medium size salt grains. It smells fresh, light and wonderful like walking into a natural water lily field. I think it’s a unisex scent, and it doesn’t linger.
It’s a little bit cumbersome to emulsify the product. Once it produces soft lather and the salt turns to milky cream, ladies, to die for!! The scalp is cleaned deeply and feel pampered. My hair is SUPER STRAIGHT and glossy. I can see the end part where I applied drugstore conditioner is less silky. It looks so healthy and salon quality in one rinse! It’s worth the hype!
VENEFFECT Pore Minimizing Cleanser Review 15 ml ($6 value) – Full size $60
Reduce visible pores and wipe away impurities with VENeffect Pore Minimising Cleanser, a daily skincare solution to help create a glowing complexion. This gentle foaming gel has a fresh skin feel and is a valuable addition to any daily face routine. The unique formulation of nutrients and enzymes works to cleanse and nourish skin.
IcanGWP Review: VENEffect co-founder, Dr. Booth, who is in the wellness business has a book called – The Venus Week: Discover the Powerful Secret of Your Cycle at Any Age. The book explores the effects on our skin, mood and feeling when estrogen peaks for a seven-day span known as the “Venus Week” each month. The brand basis is created as a unique anti-aging skincare that helps reverse the signs of hormonal aging and restore skin to peak hormonal vitality. They use phytoestrogens or plant-based estrogens as a core ingredient. If you are suffering from hormonal related skincare problem or think you might be, then testing out their samples is one way to find out. You can explore the entire line here at Space NK USA. It seems like Space NK salespeople recommend this brand to people fighting hormonal acne.
VENEFFECT is perfect for my morning cleansing routine. It’s a cleanser that works wonderful on cleansing and gives you a quick boost. The gel cleanser has no scent and doesn’t lather, and is actually not soapy at all. My skin is soft and feels awake.
The Space NK USA Spring Beauty Edit Event is a truly amazing event. The gift bag is truly a legendary and no doubt the highest value among all luxury department stores and beauty retailers. The buy-in is indeed on the high side but they make it well worth the splurge. Especially if you’re anxious to try something in the goody bag, but hesitant due to the price of the full-size item.
Normally, in the sitewide GWP world, we’ll get around $90 – $130 value gift for a $100-ish purchase, $90 value gift for a $70-ish purchase or a $20 value gift for $25 purchase. To be more specific, we usually get the highest $350 return on a $275 purchase.
We can choose, go for a better choice, reward ourselves with luxe samples that you’ll actually use.
Keep in mind, there is a limited supply so hurry, I promise you will love this bag. It’s an epic offer for luxury beauty. If you need to stock up on your favorites, try out the best-sellers people can’t live without or seek to try new beauty products – this is the time to shop and be rewarded or you’ll have to wait another 6 months.
Here are a few of my very favorite beauty brands or things I want to try available at Space NK USA for your consideration!
