My beauty blogger influenced buys

Makeup Wars is back with a topic near and dear to me. It”s all about how other bloggers have influenced us in our purchases. Near and dear? Yes because I read dozens of blogs a day and I communicate with a lot of bloggers so they usually have me on my toes and opening my wallet. Two of my “influensters” are Phyrra and Blushing Noir but they aren’t the only ones who my credit card companies call to thank.

The two products I am showing you today are the ones I use daily and I’m so glad that my fellow bloggers showed me the way.
FIRST we have BECCA Under Eye Brightening Corrector which was purchased because of Gouldylox aka Kelly. She’s been a bad influence on me for a long time but when I read her review of the Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector I knew I had to buy it ASAP. When she first reviewed it it was sold out everywhere but when it came back into stock I jumped.

Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector ($29) is a very light peach cream corrector. It’s not a concealer, it’s a corrector. It has a luminous quality to it. For me it hides dark circles just about better than anything I’ve tried. It’s not that I don’t have peach correctors that I like because this isn’t the only one I use but it’s by far my favorite and the one I reach for when it’s time to look rested, line free and ready for the rest of my face makeup.

Some people use this as a base for concealer but for me it’s perfect on its own and I can apply my foundation or CC Cream without anything else. Because of its luminosity (it’s infused with ultrafine light-reflecting illuminators) I only use it under my eyes and rely on another concealer for redness especially around my nose.

It’s a firm texture but using the warmth of my fingers makes it just glide on. I’m so in love!! You can find this at Sephora, and Amazon. Just find it!

My second love is Bioderma Sensibio H2O which has been raved about by so many bloggers. On one of our group posts almost every blogger raved about it and I felt left out (oh boo hoo). Finally I read Pammy’s review (Pammy Blogs Beauty) and I rushed to Beautylish and bought it.
A Micellar Water is hard for me to understand to be honest. It looks like regular water but it has magical powers (I’m prone to exaggeration at times). The Bioderma Micellar Water is a fragrance free facial cleanser that helps remove your makeup or just freshen your skin. There are two formulas with Sensibio H2O being the one for sensitive skin. It’s specially formulated for sensitive, normal to dry skin types.

What I do is put some on a cotton pad and use that to wash my face. I bought the one in the collage which is one 500 mg bottle and the travel size bottle as a bonus ($19.95). Even though I’m nowhere near done I know I’m buying the next package that contains two 500 mg bottles plus a 250 mg bottle for $39.90. If you aren’t sure that this is for you then start with the 250 mg bottle at $13.95.  I doubt I’ll be buying anymore facial wipes now since Bioderma Micellar Water gets my face cleaner and leaves behind no residue at all. My face is softened and cleansed. Some people use this as an eye makeup remover but it’s usually not powerful enough for me to remove mascara.bioderma 1
BIODERMA SENSIBLO H2O is “A soothing emollient thanks to cucumber extract, it clears up irritated skin and produces a feeling of instant freshness. Fragrance-free, alcohol-free, paraben-free, and hypoallergenic”.
What do you think of my two choices? Have you tried either? Have I tempted you to spend on these? Since I wholeheartedly love these I’d feel no qualms if you did buy them. — Marcia

  2. Lola Seicento | 22nd Jun 15

    I still haven’t tried the Bioderma water, and while I have been meaning to get it I just haven’t. Now, I definitely NEED it! The Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector sounds like something that I could definitely use when my dark circles appear! Excellent review!

  3. Kat Dinges | 22nd Jun 15

    Most of my influenced buys are palettes, lol. Or blush!

    I’d like to try the Bioderma Micellar Water, but I’m trying to convince myself that I’m find with Simple Micellar instead 😉

  6. Heather | 22nd Jun 15

  10. Brianna | 22nd Jun 15

    Yep, the only reason I knew and purchased Bioderma is because I saw it all over the blogosphere! And now I don’t know how I lived without it. It’s a staple for me at home and in my makeup kit!

  11. Chelsea | 22nd Jun 15

  14. Retrodiva | 22nd Jun 15

    I always listen to Ms. Gouldylox. She has every beauty product known to man in her house. Plus, she’s super smart. And the Bioderma cleansing water is on my list too today! Such GREAT stuff. Why I didn’t have it before now, I’ll never know.

  15. Miranda Mendoza | 22nd Jun 15

    Yep, I’m on the verge with the bioderma water because of beauty bloggers too!!

  16. Carleen | 22nd Jun 15

    Where do you buy the Bioderma?

  22. Nidia - Lit From Within | 23rd Jun 15

  26. The Style Page | 23rd Jun 15

    I have to try Bioderma after the raves from make-up artists, but I first have to exhaust my supplies from Vichy, Simple, Rilastil, and Trader Joe’s!

  27. Brooke @ Blushing Noir | 23rd Jun 15

    Because of this series I’m totally enabled on the Becca!

  28. StephanieLouise | 23rd Jun 15

    I’m dying to try Bioderma!

  33. Kristin Bassett | 24th Jun 15

    I love Bioderma but have a hard time finding it, so I use the Sephora brand version instead. It’s an amazing dupe and much cheaper.
