Bluemercury is my definition of “a kid in a candy store” when it comes to all things beauty, skincare, hair care, and even candles! I could spend hours and hours (and thousands) in the store. It’s seriously my favorite! They carry all of my go-to brands… Kiehl’s, Caudalie, Estee Lauder, R + Co, La Mer, Diptyque, Nars, Oribe, SK-II, Rodial, LAFCO, and so so many more. I’ve recently been loving their in-house skincare line, M-61, too! (If you’re wondering about a certain brand, check out the full list of lines carried here! And they also have mens!) Use the widget below to enter the giveaway! Each winner will receive a $100 gift card to Bluemercury and a 10-pack of M-61 PowerGlow Peels.
Update: This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to the winners: Nichole O, Sarah R, and Sara S. You have an email in your inbox!
Remember this not-so-little stock-up session before the holidays?! I purchased the M-61 PowerGlow Peels in November and have been using them about once or twice a week ever since. I got an amazing facial in London this fall (at the One Aldwych Spa) and the esthetician told me I have a few broken blood vessels and needed to be careful with gritty exfoliants. Since then, these peel pads have functioned as my exfoliant! If you win, you’ll have to let me know how you like them.
Also, for my Chicago gals… I just saw that they’re opening a location at Clark & Kinzie and I am so so so excited to have a store downtown in addition to Halsted in Lincoln Park and on Southport Corridor. No idea when it opens, I only saw signs in the window as I was driving by!
Update: That store is now open in River North, as is a location at State & Elm in the Gold Coast near me!
A few things on my current wish list…
And here are some of the products I own, use, and love from Bluemercury!

Also, a little story about my favorite Diptyque candles… The reason for my Bluemercury visit this week was to pick up one of the new Diptyque candles. Every year, Diptyque partners with a designer on a limited-edition rose-scented candle. Rose is, by far, my favorite scent to burn in my home and also to wear so I always look forward to scooping up their latest rose-based scent! 2015 was my favorite year so far… Rosafolia smells heavenly. I can’t smell it without instantly smiling. (I’m currently on my last candle from when I stocked up that year… It only gets burned on special occasions, ha!) I wasn’t in love with last year’s Rosaviola, but the empty jar sure looks pretty holding makeup brushes on my vanity in my bathroom. This year’s scent is Rosa Mundi and I really, really like it so far! It sort of reminds me of the scent I’m obsessed with from two years ago… I bought two yesterday, but I’m willing to bet I grab another one (or ten) before they’re gone. I will say, though, that I’ve loved how the past few years have been a different jar… A white jar with flowers printed (see it here, here, & here!) and pink jar with little patches (see it here!) … But this year it’s just a clear jar with a paper-like wrapping glued to it. Coming from someone who saves all of my Diptyque jars for mini vases and storage in my bathroom (lipsticks, q-tips, floss picks, makeup brushes, you name it), obviously the pretty exterior will have to be removed before washing it and removing the excess wax to repurpose the jar. I don’t want to ruin it now and take the wrapping off, so I’m not sure what exactly is on the glass or if it’s just plain without a label at all. Whew, who knew I had so much to say about rose-scented candles?! 😜
