Summer Skincare Must-Haves|AVEENO & NEUTROGENA

 

Hey everyone! So we’re smacked up to the beginning of summer. It’s about 80 degrees where I am right now. So, I thought it would be probably a good idea to have a little chat about sunscreen today. I’m going to show you some of the sample products I just received in the mail from Aveeno and Neutrogena.

Aveeno Summer Must Haves
*Press Samples

I’m a very firm believer that the best sunscreen for you or you could possibly use is the one that you would actually be using. The one that you’ll apply and reapply as much as needed. I love to wear sunscreen with high SPF pretty much everyday in the summer. Yes, I tend to get burn to crisps quite easily, so let just say sunscreen is my life saver.

So many products are out this year, so  many great products actually. I’m super excited because I’m having so much fun doing this review. This year both Brands are introducing their must-haves new mineral sunscreens.

Aveeno Mineral Sunscreen

AVEENO Sensitive Skin SPF 50 – It claims that – this new and improved mineral sunscreens are formulated with naturally sourced 100% zinc oxide and active natural oat to combine effective broad-spectrum UVA sun protection with skin soothing benefits.

I can’t leave home without sunscreen especially when I go for a vacation. So, I’ve been wearing it religiously during our trip to Ottawa and have been loving it. I also shared it with my family members and appreciate how it helps protect our skin from being baked by the UV light. A sunscreen that has a nice and natural soothing scents which reminds me of the beach. I really like the smell even though it reads on the bottle as fragrance free. Honestly, I was intrigued by the non-greasy mineral sunscreen formula. This product isn’t greasy at all and the best thing is that it doesn’t irritate skin. The only cons I can think of is that it leaves a white cast on my dad’s darker skin, but I haven’t found a physical sunblock that doesn’t. If you have dry and sensitive skin then Get yours here!

Baby Sunscreen Aveeno

Next new product is the AVEENO Baby Sunscreen SPF 50 – I’m very happy to have this sunscreen for my 2nd grader. He spent his summer outdoor very much everyday and this is a must-haves for him to wear it whether for soccer or swimming in the pool. I love all Aveeno’s products so I wouldn’t hesitate giving this to him. It’s a brand I trust. Get this for your baby.

Aveeno Cleanser

This is one of my favorite Positively Radiant Cleanser, it leaves my skin feels so soft and completely clean. This is a win. I love the formula, I love the way it smells so natural and slightly medicinal. Available in drugstores.

Daily moisturizer

For younger, oilier skins this lotion alone should be plenty for all day moisture and protection while leaving your skin hydrated. For a daily moisturizer that works, this might be just the ticket for you, too.

60 second facial shower .jpg

Aveeno Positively Radiant 60 Second In-Shower Facial –  is a gentle treatment you leave on for just one minute in the shower and because of the steam, it helps to exfoliate and brighten your skin. I noticed tiny micro beads that’s great for exfoliating death skin. If you’re someone who love multi-tasking when in the shower, this In-Shower facial won’t let you down. Find it here! 

Overnight Hydrating Facial Moisturizer

AVEENO Positively Radiant Overnight Hydrating Facial is a deeply hydrating moisturizer that you apply at night. It actually reminds me of the Laniege Sleeping Mask which I’ve been reaching for lately. The formula feels very lightweight on skin and it smells so amazing. I’m also amazed at how quick the product absorbs into my skin leaving skin hydrated and smooth. Smells like a walk through the enchanted forest. Another good thing about this product is that it’s oil free and leaves a soft glow on skin

I think this would make a perfect moisturizer for warm summer night. It’s not super hydrating as other night cream I’ve tried during winter months but this just hit the mark. It’s your summer must haves product if you’ve normal to combination skin typed. Your skin is going to thank you for it. You got to try it. 

Makeup Remover Wipes Aveeno

AVEENO Make-Up Removing Wipes – this product contains Total Soy Complex that not only help even out skin tone and texture but visibly transform dull, uneven skin into brighter, more radiant looking skin. I have tried this wipes over the last few days and I’m satisfied by how well it removes my eye and face makeup. This wipes feels a little thicker than other drugstore brands I’ve tried in a good way. I really appreciate its durability. A wipe that cleans and remove all the dirt and makeup with ease. If you haven’t tried this – here’s the link.

Sheer Zinc SPF50

Another two new and improved mineral sunscreens this summer are from NEUTROGENA and it’s their Sheer Zinc Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 and Face Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 which I’ll talk about next.

Mineral Sunscreen has increasingly gain its popularity over the past years and was lucky enough to receive package containing a top-up of some of my most-loved Aveeno and Neutrogena products. So I thought I’d put together a post combining these two brands and to tell you a little bit more about some of my favorite skincare items from the collection in case you were interested in trying any out.

If you’re into mineral sunscreen then you just have to try this Neutrogena Mineral Sunscreen with SPF 50.  Then your quest for mineral sunscreens ends right here. 

It claims – this gentle formula delivers superior broad spectrum protection against burning UVB and ageing UVA rays – with 2x better UVA protection than the leading mineral sunscreen. It’s mild even on sensitive skin, and it’s free of fragrance, parabens, phthalates, dyes, and irritating chemicals.

With summer officially here, sunscreen with high SPF UVA protection is a must-haves in my household. I love to know what’s your must-haves skincare products this summer?

Sheer Zinc Facial

Next is the NEUTROGENA Sheer Zinc Face Mineral Sunscreen with SPF 50 – it’s of 100% zinc oxide UVA. A new revolutionary product that helps prevent sunburn. I like how easy it applies and doesn’t leave any white globs and disappeared into skin rather quickly. I appreciate a good consistency product which is neither overly liquidy nor thick. This mineral sunscreen is on my check list. Try it out for yourself! 

Body Stick Sunscreen

I’m very excited to be testing out the Ultra Sheer Facial and Body Stick Sunscreen by Neutrogena. This is my first time seeing sunscreen in a stick format. My first thought was a deodorant but a sunscreen with SPF 50+ in a stick – this I’m intrigued to try. Love the amazing scents and I like that it glides on like a dream. No mess on application and so convenient to use. A travel friendly packaging that’s leak proof and the best part is that you can just throw it in your purse. This mineral-based stick sunscreen won’t clog pores, and it helps to prevent signs of aging while protecting your skin. Waterproof and lightweight, for a full face and body UVA protection, try this mineral sunscreen the next time you’re out and about.

I’ve already posted it in my Instagram because I love it so much. I’m very much into skincare right now. Aveeno is hands down one of my favorite drugstore brand.

If you’re new to the brand definitely make sure you try some of the products that I’ve mentioned. Let me know what you think and if you love Aveeno and Neutrogena as much as I do!

So, thanks for stopping and read. I also like to thank Aveeno and Neutrogena for this great opportunity to collaboration.  And until next time, I’m wishing a Great Skin Health! Bye!!!

NEUTROGENA® Facial Cleansing Bar Original and Dry Unscented – Review

 

Hi guys! How’s it going? Not too bad I hope. This post is a highly requested product review that I got from you guys. So, that’s what I’m going to do today.

Let’s cut to the chase and jump right in.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here’s the NEUTROGENA® Facial Cleansing Bar Original and Dry Unscented which I posted about two weeks ago in my PR Box Unboxing blog. This product was sent to me for free by Neutrogena in exchange for my honest opinion.

This product is available at any drugstores or Walmart.

Soap

I usually have break outs on my cheek or my chin area if I try any new skincare products but ever since I was introduced to try out this facial bar I don’t have any of that concern at all. My skin feels so clear and squeaky clean. I’m quite impressed to say the least.

When you read this post, I would have probably have been cleansing my face with it for the past 10 days or so. But I recorded my first experience in hope that you guys would like it.

Neutrogena soap in water

Seriously! It’s my first time ever doing a facial cleansing with a bar of soap. I was pretty nervous and excited at the same time. I was just hoping that I did the steps correctly.

soap foam

First, I rinse my face wet with luke warm water. Then I let the tap water runs before I put the facial bar under the running water so that I could get the soap to lathe like so.

before cleansing

Here’s the before image using the facial bar.

Cleansing

Then I apply them all over face and give it a good massage for it to get into my skin. I tried to avoid the eyes for fear it might burnt. Soap getting into the eyes is not joke. I really like that feeling of my skin getting clean and this facial bar did just that. It leaves my skin feeling smooth and so so nice. I couldn’t stop touching feeling it.

rinsing off

Then I rinsed it off with some warm water and then I pat my face dry. I’ve been loving this.

For the past 10 days I’ve been using it, it didn’t leaves me with any dry spots or harsh to my skin. I’ve pretty sensitive skin and it’s been working well with me and I haven’t had any problem with it thus far.

drying

I really love it. It feels so great! My skin feels so clean, it’s smooth and soft.

This bar doesn’t have any scents at all as they claimed, which in my opinion not a bad thing at all. Not everyone wants scented skincare products to be honest.

after use

It dries up after I left it on my face towel for half an hour. It doesn’t feel sticky or slimy to touch like some other soap do. I’m satisfied with the results and will continue to use it.

2 thumbs up
Yaas!!! It’s that awesome 🙂

That’s all I’ve to say.

I hope this review is helpful for some of you who’s looking for some new products to try.

If you did enjoy this post definitely follow my blog. I hope you come to check on my social media down below. Make sure you are following me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (@heysharonoox) for the latest update. In the meantime come and say hi! I love to hear from you.

So that’s it for now, and I’ll see you on my next blog, bye!

May Skincare Favorites

 

Hey everyone! Welcome to my blog. It’s been awhile since we sat down and talked about favorites. And since it’s that time again, I thought I’ll round up a few of my skincare favorites from the last month or so.

So, let’s hop into it.

Hey Sharonoox May Skincare Faves

For this post I wanted to show you a few of the items that I’ve really been enjoying for the month of May, the ones that have made my daily skincare routine all the more fun and the ones that help to make my skin not only look and feel on top condition, but help to give me a little bit of zen in my life at the same time. I love these products and I know that you will too!

OLYMPUS Clarins Extra Firming Day Cream
#Press sample

You guys know I’m super into moisturizers so when I was given this Clarins Extra Firming Day Wrinkle Lifting Cream  free sample from my beautician at my local Pharmaprix to try it out,  and I was completely hooked. I love it so much that I’ve been in my daily routine for quite sometime now. I’m sad that it’s finishing soon but I’ll purchase it in a full size. I’m lazy when it comes to applying too many products on my skin so I really like the efficient way of wearing it. The formula is so creamy that makes it easy to wear and it smells so amazing. This product is luxurious that it feels like an awesome treat to apply! I’d go as far to say that the Firming Day Cream is up there with some of my favorites. It leaves my skin feeling very hydrated and firmer. Give it a go if you haven’t already. 

Aveeno Posivitely Radiant Night Cream

You all know by now that I’m a fan of Aveeno products and this Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream is my drugstore alternative night cream to my Lancome Bienfait Vital Night Cream when I don’t feel like to be spendy. I’m not saying that it’s better than the latter but it’s works the same for me. Both have vitamins that helps the skin to recharge, radiantly luminous and ready to face the day.

Aveeno Posivitely Radiant Night Cream

I’ve been using this product consistency for the past 3 months before going to bed and I’ve almost ran out of this one. Even though it’s almost done but it lasts a long time because I don’t need to use so much product. The formula is so good that with just the size of dime is all I need, so a little goes a long way. I’m so happy that I almost hit pan with this product. I love it so much. Get yours here.

Origins Frosty Face wash

Next favorite I want to give a shout out to is the Origins Cheeks and Balances Frosty Face Wash. Come on who doesn’t like Origins right! This brand is awesome and honestly I’ve been loving some of their skincare products lately.

I tried it a many times and with so many products I received, I kind of forgot about it and ever since I rediscovered it again in my vanity and I’ve been using this non-stop. With combo skin I find it hard to pick a cleanser that doesn’t dry out my face and keeps the oil at a minimum but this product changed everything. It smells great and lather amazingly. It gives a foamy feeling during wash and it feels gently to the skin. A little goes such a long and I do appreciate that. Makes me remember why I love it so much in the first place. If you love Origins, you must run to get it, it saddens me that such great product is so underrated.

Acure Moroccan Oil [Rose]
#Press sample
This product smells insane. Yes, I’m talking about the Acure Moroccan Argan Oil Rose. This was sent to me for an exchange of my honest opinion a while ago. I love the scents of rose and cherish it; this smells so good. The pump bottle packaging is perfect for girls like me who prefers not to dab my fingers into the product. And when it comes to cute packaging, I’m down you know what I mean. Another thing I really like about the packaging is that it’s travel friendly.

I’ve been wearing this as face serum in my nighttime skincare routine, on my cuticles and my dry flaky heels. It’s super moisturizing and with my combination to dry skin type this is a great standby oil to always have on my hand. This oil is the best I’ve tried by far. For some of you who’s environmentally concern, rest assure that this brand is cruelty, vegan and paraben FREE.  You seriously got to try it.

Caudalie Grape Water

Last but not least in my May Skincare Favorite is the Caudalie Grape Water.  I LOVE face mists, and when I stumbled upon this Grape Water by Caudalie I know that we’re going to be BFF. I love this stuff. It has the faintest scents of grapes which isn’t over the top kind of smell, if you know what I mean! It’s so easy to use and it makes my skin feels nice and fresh. I like to spritz it when I’m on my no makeup day – just to give my skin a little boost and energy kick which I didn’t know I needed. You can also used it as a setting spray after your makeup, it’s so versatile you can use it how ever ways that sails your boat. Trust me! This is a must have. Available at Sephora.

Have you tried any of the products that I’ve mentioned in this post? If so, which ones are your favorites? I’d love to know! I’m always looking for new skincare products to try, so if you’ve any recommendations that you think I’ll love then please let me know by leaving me a comment down below, I can’t wait to hear what you guys are loving!

Thank you so much for stopping by to read. If you did enjoy this post definitely follow my blog. I hope you come to check on my social media down below. Make sure you are following me on Twitter and Instagram (@heysharonoox) for the latest update. In the meantime come and say hi!

Japanese KOJI DOLLY WINK Liquid Eyeliners – REVIEW

 

Wow! Again, I can’t believe how fast another month has gone by. It’s only last week I celebrated my birthday. In this post, I wanted to give a shout out to my lovely daughter who knows me so well.

This is the best gift ever! She knows that I love Dolly Wink liquid liners and the rest is history. I couldn’t get enough of this liquid eyeliners ever since I tried it. This could be a very possible contestant for the Sharon’s Beauty Awards. And for me to receive three of my favorites Dolly Wink, I was so happy I almost passed out.

It’s the only liquid eyeliner that I will swear by. xD It’s fantastic! Keep reading to find out my entire thoughts about the eyeliner ~ It’s definitely a MUST HAVE eyeliner.

3 eyeliners

In case you’re not familiar with the product and its origin, Dolly Wink is a Japanese brand produced by the Japanese model Tsubasa Masuwaka, who represents the Gyaru trend which literally translates to gal in English. Dolly Wink is a brand presented by Koji as you can see on all their packaging.

DW liquid liner

I’ve this same liquid liner when my daughter first bought it back for me from Japan. I fell in love with it instantly. It’s exactly like the Kat Von D Tattoo eyeliner but so much better. Honestly, this is one of the best eyeliners I’ve ever used.

Love this eyeliner. The brush is so easy to work with, it goes on black and the thin brush allows you to create a perfect smooth lines and sharp winged liner sections a breeze. The formula is very long lasting and waterproof. I could tell you this is the only product that doesn’t smudge and stay on even when I’m crying my eyes out (when I get emotion) – LOL.

Dolly wink liquid liner

The shade I got is in Deep Black and although it’s not the blackest color I’ve seen, I can say it’s color is pigmented.

I really like the cute packaging of this eyeliner pen. The product comes in a pink color pen with golden ornaments all over and a black cap.

LiquidEyelinerDollyWInk

It makes my eyes look so flattering and bigger.

DW Pencil liner

Next I’ve the Dolly Wink Pencil Eyeliner in Black. A pencil type liner with a creamy soft touch. It’s break resistant and so easy to apply. As you know, I’m a sucker for cute packaging so this design is right up my alley. It’s so pretty and kawaii!!!

I’ve been holding off to trying any pencil liners for the longest time since I couldn’t find a real easy to blend pencil eyeliner that would glide on like a dream.

I did my first impression today (Sunday), and I’m in love with this liner. It’s so easy to use and I’ve no issues in drawing thin or thick lines. The color payoff is amazing and it gives a matte finish which I really appreciate.

Dolly Wink pencil liner

In the swatch above, the pencil eyeliner is matte while the liquid pen is glossy. If you’re into liquid eyeliner and likes to draw thin sharp lines, I think the first one is for you.

I try to smudge it on the above picture, I hardly rub it and so glad it stayed! It won’t budge at all. I wore it from morning till night time and it lasted me for a good 12 hours wear. Good news is that even though it’s waterproof, it’s easy to remove using warm water or the eye makeup remover.

So, for my first Dolly Wink pencil eyeliner (kohl) review, it’s a keeper in my makeup stash. I know I’m going to use it almost everyday.

Here’s the look: Line my upper lash line with the pencil eyeliner, pardon the not so good line here.

DW liquid liner No 1

Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner in Super Black packaging version is red color pen with golden ornaments all over. It’s so cute and looks expensive.

I love how the brush is very thin because it makes getting a precise line easy and simple. The tip applicator is identical to the Liquid Eyeliner in Deep Black. Making wings and cat eye liner is so, so quick with this eyeliner.

Dolly Wink No 1 Liquid Liner

Here’s a swatch of the colors. I really love how pigmented these eyeliners are.  They’re smudge proof and dries quickly as claimed but the best part is – you can easily removed it with just warm water. Forget the fuss of makeup remover. It comes off easily.

These eyeliners didn’t come cheap, it costs my daughter a whopping $45 for these three eyeliners. So based on the price of these eyeliners, they’re a pretty expensive eyeliner but Dolly Wink is a very popular brand in Japan so I’m not so surprised. Yes, they’re more expensive than the typical drugstore liquid eyeliner in the US but I promise they’re so, worth the price!

I highly recommend this brand if you’re into pencil eyeliners. Have you tried Dolly Wink Eyeliners?

And that’s all I’ve for now! Comment below if you’ve any suggestions or thoughts you’ve for my blog. I’m open to all your ideas!

I hope you all have a wonderful day/evening. I love you and take care!

Me & My Sephora Birthday Gift

 

Hi guys! Do you know that May is my birthday month? Well, May is an exciting month for me for many reasons month one of which is that I get to receive my Sephora‘s Birthday Gift (for FREE!) :).

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This year there are three sets you can choose from (check out the other two on Sephora’s website here). Caudalie and Jack Black are both nice sets but since I’ve already have the Caudalie skincare products I skipped on that one. I really want to try the Jack Black but it’s only redeemable through online and since I was already in the store, I grabbed the Tarte Lip and Cheek set instead.

It includes:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

1x Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Paaarty  

This shade is described as a gorgeous dusty pink which neither look too dusty on cheeks but is the most perfect toned down pink that isn’t too dark or too mauvy vibe to it … did that makes any sense? It’s so beautiful and richly pigmented that a little goes a long way. This is actually my second blush from this line and I love how creamy and smooth the formula is. It blends extremely well on cheeks and the shade is absolutely stunning. A perfect shade for summer it is.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

If you need a natural look blush for a medium -light skin, this shade is for you. The best in every way and my all time favorite blush for every occasion.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

1x Tartiest Creamy Matte Lip Paint in Birthday Suit 

Second one in this set is Birthday Suit and do allow me to talk about it for a sec. It’s truly matte and the neutral nude looks so flattering on my lips. It feels very comfortable and not drying at all. It’s definitely MLBB (My lips but better) and yet noticeable. I’m so much in love with it that I’ve been wearing it nonstop since I got it. This could be my perfect MLBB shade after all. I posted a #LOTD photo in my Instagram link wearing it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

You know it’s’ the one when —  (a) the lipstick is basically the same shade as your lips but adds just a bit more depth and intensity to your pout. (b) The one you can apply without a mirror and (c) after having four cups of coffee or tea and not mess it up.

To be completely honest, I was blown away to the point that when I’m done with this one, I’m most definitely picking the full sized version of Birthday Suit.

Glad you asked —  Did you know that you don’t have to even shop at Sephora to qualify for your free birthday gift?  All you’ve to do is sign up for a Beauty Insider account. Easy as 123! And if you’re already a member, don’t forget to redeem your birthday gift at the check out or in store the next time your birthday is coming up.

I don’t know about you but I love that the Sephora Birthday Gift comes at me with options this year.

So what are your thoughts on this year’s Sephora Birthday Gift? Anyone received it yet? Which one will you choose?

Thanks for taking the time to read. I’ll see you again on the next post :).

Colourpop Box Unboxing 2

 

Hi guys, in this post I’m going to do a box unboxing. I received this box a week after Mother’s Day. Unfortunately, it didn’t arrived on time but it’s better late than never.

Here is the video unboxing of Colourpop’s box series #2.

I didn’t open the box because I wanted to share the excitement with you guys. You will see the original state of the box and how it looks like in this video.

It comes in a white cardboard box and the print on the side says “Made In LA”.  And it’s opened up a nice flower design with the Colourpop name on it. There’s a insert Mother’s Day greeting card for me which is so lovely. My hubby and son knows that I love makeup so this was a great surprise.

pressed shadows

The first 3 products are the Colourpop Pressed Shadows. I got it in the shade Outta Luck, Top Notch and last one is Let Me Explain. These are the eyeshadows that drew me the most. I don’t remember having any of these pressed shadows from Colourpop before and so I’m very excited to try them out.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Next, is the Mini Ultra Satin Lip in the shade London Fog (a cool-toned blue red) and Dopey (a mid-toned dusty mauve). The full size Ultra Satin Lips retail for USD$6.00 each (the same as their Ultra Matte Lips).

This is a new alternative to the Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick. I love their ultra matte and this is another reason why I like this satin lipstick. Liquid lipsticks are one of my favorite beauty products of all time. In general, I love their intensity, their precision, and their long wear.

Some liquids gives bulletproof wear, meaning it can dry out your lips but not these. The big difference between Ultra Matte and Ultra Satin is that Ultra Satin doesn’t dry down to a completely matte finish. It doesn’t feel heavy, sticky, or even tacky, but you know they’re there. These are extremely pigmented and sets to a comfortable satin finish. I really like the shades of these two liquid lipsticks.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This was the best Mother’s Day gift bag that was gifted to me. Shout out to my hubby and son for choosing this awesome gift. I love everything in it. The swag bag is super cute!

Inside the Mother’s Day swag bag (limited edition) you got a Double Play Pressed Powder Blush & Highlighter, 2 Blotted Lip Lipsticks and an Eye liner. It was a super deal since they only paid $25 for all 4 items.

Which one do you like?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It’s revolutionary! Say whaaat! That’s right! Colourpop created a new formula based off of their super shock technology that’s developed specifically for this face palette that will not dry out!

Double Play Pressed Powder Blush Face Duo is retailed for $16 on their website. The shade on the left is Getting Handsy which is described as a matte blush with warm nude undertone while the Padded Down is a pearlized highlighter in warm champagne undertone.

I’m super excited to give this a test run. I’ve heard some positive things about it so I’m curious to try it out myself. You guys know the drill – an upcoming post review with color swatch coming up soon.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Next thing I got is their new range of lip products is the Blotted Lip Lipstick. I got the shade Sucker is a soft coral and Drip is described as a warm rosey mauve color lip.

As I did the color swatches, I feel that Colourpop Blottled Lip Lipsticks have the most unique texture I’ve ever come across – it combines the firmness of a wax crayon with the silky-smoothness of silicone. It has the cushiony softness that’s comfy to wear on lips. There’s no fragrant or scents at all.

One thing I noticed is that if you want a medium coverage, you need to swipe at least 2- 3x to get the opacity. I wear Drip today for lunch at Bar B Barn (I had BBQ chicken and fries) and I did a quick touch up before heading to Sephora. It was a NO fuss touch up! I’m currently loving it.

The formula is my absolute favorite from Colourpop so far. If you’re like me and prefer minimal, natural, no-fuss makeup looks, I would definitely recommend picking up a few of these. Plus at $5 each, you can’t beat it!)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Last but not least, is the Colourpop Creme Gel Liner in the color Brew -Haha and is described as a True black brown in a matte finish. I really like the color but the pencil keeps breaking on me. I’m not sure if I got a bad one because the first I did the color swatch it broke, and then when I tried to use it again today, it kept breaking. I like the pencil but this one failed me. I don’t recommend this pencil liner to anyone until an improvement is made to the formula.

Don’t forget to check on their website for their new Limited Edition Birthday Bag Kit. It’s their 3rd year Anniversary, you guys! This is not a partnership or sponsor post whatsoever, I’m just sharing some love on the special deals.

Just a quick reminder that Colourpop hold the PETA badge of honour Beauty Without Bunnies.  This company is cruelty-free! It does NOT test on animals.

Have you tried any of Colourpop makeup products yet? What’s your favorite? Tell me everything down below!

Aveeno & Neutrogena PR BOX Unboxing – My First Youtube Video EVER

 

What’s up you guys! Welcome back to my blog! This week is a very exciting week for me. I was contacted by a PR company before Mother’s Day if I want to receive samples to honor mothers from Aveeno. I immediately said yes, (a) because I’m a fan girl of Aveeno, (b) since my mom is coming to visit me in two weeks, I wanted to share these goodies with her. With Aveeno and Neutrogena, everyday is Mother’s Day!

So, last week I got these sample products in the mail for an exchange of my honest review. Part of my job as a beauty blogger is to test out as much as possible so I can share my reviews with you guys.

Aveeno Skin Products

If you are a long time reader you know that I’m a fan girl of Aveeno. I’m also a huge advocate for taking care of your skin, it’s the largest part in our body and the one everyone sees! You only get one, take care of it!

I wanted to do something really special to honor my mom this Mother’s Day beside sharing products with her. So I uploaded my very first YouTube video ever. It’s my first video and definitely not my last!

First of all let’s talk about what I got in this box unboxing. Let me show you what’s inside the current drop…

Up close picture of my favorite products side by side.

AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Lotion is certainly having a moment isn’t it? It’s everywhere you look and what a revelation too; a moisturizing lotion that’s skin friendly, affordable and effective. What more could you ask for?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Body Wash. I rave about this all the time but truly it’s one of the best moisturizing body wash. It smells so amazing! It’s formulated with ACTIVE NATURALS® Colloidal Oatmeal to moisturize for 24 hours, leaving skin feeling soft and smooth. They claim to provide and lock in moisture for softer, smoother more comfortable skin long after you shower. And it’s soap free and even gentle enough for sensitive skin. I love Aveeno’s Body Wash crazy lot and let me tell you this, you got to try it. Period.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I know that my mom prefers a lightweight formula when it comes to body care and this AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Sheer Hydration Lotion will be perfect for her. This hydrating, ultra sheer lotion absorbs in seconds, for a fresh, powder like feel she’ll want to use all year round. This product is voted by Canadian Living Consumers to be the Best New Product of 2016. 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

NEUTROGENA® All-in-One Make-Up Removing Cleansing Wipes. I know facial wipes aren’t for everyone but I do like to stash a pack in my handbag for any make-up emergency or when travelling. Otherwise, regardless of how tired I may be, I will always opt for a “real” cleanser kinda gal. My real gripe with make-up wipes is how they leave my skin feeling after use – even if it is just one use. If ever there was a facial cleansing cloth to pack for a festival, or those just-in-case moments it’s the Neutrogena  Make-Up Removing Cleansing Wipes. 

My mom wears makeup and since we’ll be travelling quite a bit when she’s here visiting, I know this wipes is going to be handy.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

NEUTROGENA® Facial Cleansing Bar Original and Dry Unscented. Soap. Truly how often do you purchase soap and no I’m not talking about the anti-bacterial liquid hand soap you purchase with your weekly grocery shop, rather I’m indeed referring to the solid bars that perhaps now seem a little lost in time. It claims this bar is pure and provides a gentle cleansing for clean, clear, healthy-looking skin.

I never use soap to wash my face but I like to venture and try new things that I haven’t tried before. Frankly I’m nervous but I’m going to put this to its test and give an update in an upcoming post.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

NEUTROGENA® NORWEGIAN FORMULA® Fragrance Free Hand Cream. This is my favorite hand cream, it’s highly concentrated skin care formula instantly leaves dry hands noticeably softer and smoother after just one application. It smells nothing at all. This product is fragrance free.

I only use a small amount of products on my hands as shown below, just a little goes a long way.  You can see a noticeable difference in softness and smoothness on your hands after application. Your hands will feel very hydrated and will thank you for it. I’ve tried it and I’m convinced. What are you waiting for? GO!

So, that’s it for today’s post and I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. I just can’t wait to see my mom’s reaction trying out some of the products that I’ll be sharing with her. Shout out to Aveeno for making this possible.

Which products are you most interested in? Would you pick any of these items up? What should I try out next? Love to hear your thoughts!

Do You Need It? Essence Makeup Bronzing & Highlighting Palette

 

Hi guys! Today’s I’ll be talking about this new palette by Essence Makeup well maybe not new new but it’s definitely new to me. It’s the Glow Must Go On bronzing and highlighting palette and I picked up mine at my local drugstore but it’s also available at Essence’s website if you want to check it out.

essence glow and go

This palette is a collaboration with beauty youtuber and this one bronzing & highlighting palette is with Serena from Beautylab. I like supporting beauty youtuber who works hard and get their name out.

There are four available and the one that drawn me the most is called The Glow Must Go On, a bronzing and highlighting palette! 

Really like the outside packaging and design of this palette. It’s made of cardboard material but very sturdy. It’s a nice size for travelling and small enough to fit into any makeup bag.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

In this palette, you get a highlighter, two eyeshadows and three beautiful shimmery bronzers. There’s a small brush to help you apply the products but I prefer to use it for touch ups only. To me it seems like a perfect “getaway” palette for holidays. You can also use the glowing highlighter or bronzers on your eyes, to add them some more shine.

This palette is amazing. I was blown away when I swatched these. They feel so creamy and pigmented.  “the glow must go on” palette has three different bronzers in warm.

If you want to know if it impressed me or not, read on!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

L-R: Honey Glow Highlighter, Cinnamon and Sandalwood Eyeshadows 

The Cinnamon eyeshadow is described as brick orange while Sandalwood is more like medium dark brown shadow. I was drawn to the Sandalwood shade as it’s chocolaty and looks like a rich color.  As for the Cinnamon, it’s more dusty than the darker brown and the pigmentation isn’t the best but can be built up a bit. These two eyeshadows are matte and can be used as bronzer if you like to mix things up a bit. I used the Cinnamon shade as transition color or on the crease and the Sandalwood on the outer corner.

Next is the Honey Glow highlighter which gives a frosty finish that I really like. It’s pigmented so you don’t need loads to achieve the desired look.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Next are the swatches of the trio power Glowing Bronzer. The bronzers are in copper,  bronze and pink shade. The finish of the bronzer is super metallic and looks very well on warmer skin tones. Brunettes with yellow undertone will love this!

The texture is very soft. It’s buildable as well as blendable. The shades are beautiful but the drawback for me is the shimmery formula.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This small brush applicator is useful to apply highlighter or touch ups. I find it’s too big and flat for your eyes and too small to use for your face.

MOTD

Oh boy, am I glowing!!! The highlighter is my only favorite from the palette.

Overall, I think this is a nice palette if you’re looking for minimum color palette which is easy to work. It’s not a terrible palette if you like glowy bronzers which I’m not really a fan of. The design got my attention and the fact that I’m supporting a youtuber in her collab with Essence. Sadly,  as much as I want to like all of them, it’s a miss for me. I would say don’t waste your money, there are other drugstore palettes out there that offers more for your buck.

Hope this review was helpful to you! If you do decide to try these palettes, let me know how they fared with you!

Hit or Miss? Caudalie Favorites Set

 

Hi guys! What’s going on friends? So, if you read last week’s post, you’ll know about my new obsession in skincare by Caudalie and how much I’m loving the skincare products.

It’s going to be a little review on the skincare products that I’ve been using lately and it’s got to be the Caudalie Favorites Set. I really like that they have very much all the products which I wanted to try out and there have been a lot of requests for a review on some of the products from this set.

So, I’m going to go ahead with the review right now.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This set comes in a good size travel bag which I really appreciate. I like that the material is made of part cloth and the front a transparent plastic for easy view.

Premier Cru The Eye Cream – for all skin types

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

On the website, it says – this sumptuous eye cream reduces the signs of aging related to the eye contour: dark circles, puffiness, drooping eyelids, shadowy areas. Apply morning and evening, a twice daily ritual for best results.

I’m quite impressed with the texture, it’s creamy and luxurious. This tinted tan color cream goes on smoothly without leaving any white cast or stickiness whatsoever.

It’s been a week since I tried it and I haven’t noticed anything substantial. I don’t find that it helped at all with dark circles or puffiness. The only good side I noticed is an immediate radiance effect on my skin and that it works well under makeup.

Frankly, I’m so glad that I got it in sample size before I decided to plunge in the splurge. Given the price in full size bottle is $99 (CAD$110) at Sephora, I honestly don’t think it’s worth the hefty price tag. It’s an okay eye cream but don’t expect it to knock your socks off kind of eye cream.

Instant Detox Mask – to tighten pores 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I get a lot of requests to do this review. So, I’m going to jump right in.

Although I’m a fan of Caudalie, this is my first experience with their masks and I’m well impressed. The full size tube is 75 ml and retails for CAD$47 and it’s Made in France. 0% animal ingredients and paraben free.

This mask comes packaged in a beautiful sleek squeeze tube. They claim that Instant Detox Mask is designed to eliminate impurities and toxins to tighten pores and renew skin texture. Recommended use is 5-10 minutes and rinse, 2x per week. Main ingredients are pink clay, grape marc and coffee.

My thoughts after one week of testing it. I do think to see long-term results one needs to put skincare products to the test for an extended period of time, but in the one week that I’ve tested it, I can say that after each use, you can definitely feel a difference in skin texture and overall feel.

This is a traditional clay mud masks that draw impurities, oils and tighten pores. It comes in a pink clay color that will dry and tighten after you applied it. As it dries, I can feel my skin tightening and you can see tiny dark spots where it’s drawing out oils from your pores. It’s non-irritating and leaves the skin feeling super clean. If you have dry skin like me, then you may want to leave this on for a shorter period of time or just use this on spots.

My verdict: The Instant Detox Mask is something I think will be extremely popular, especially for those with oily skin, it’s potent but still very gentle on the skin and won’t irritate or sting like some other lines will.

Beauty Elixir – for smoothing & glowing complexion

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Let’s talk about this Beauty Elixir shall we and take a moment to enjoy this awesomeness! Yes, it’s my first experience trying out this product so you can tell how excited I was when I did the test run last week.

Here’s what I think.

I’ve heard so many hype on the internet awhile ago and have always wanted to try for myself and see what the raves were all about. So, when I saw this is in the Caudalie Favorites Set I was over the moon.

Could you  just imagine misting your face with the refreshing Beauty Elixir on a hot summer day… What a relief that would be, right?

Let me tell you. It feels refreshing and awesome! The mist is very fine and not squirty at all, the frosted glass packaging looks beautiful on my vanity, and it does feel cooling on the skin for the 3 seconds before it dries. I love the amazing scents. I’m in heaven.

Micellar Cleansing Water – 3 in 1 remove makeup, cleanse and tone 

P5047371.JPG

Caudalie Make-Up Remover Cleansing Water is a soap-free water that removes makeup while cleansing and toning the your skin. I really like the scents – it has a slight orange, lemon and minty scents which I can’t really describe but it does smells amazing.

It removes eye makeup very easily. You don’t have to rub it hard, just leave the cotton pad on your eyes for a few seconds and then gently wipe it off. Won’t cause eye irritation and tugging. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3. I know that I’ll be reaching for this from now on and will repurchase in a full size bottle once I go through this one.

Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet – to quench and smooth skin 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Last but not least is the moisturizing sorbet cream. The product itself is a white color cream, which has the perfect texture and consistency. It’s neither runny like a lotion; nor is it very thick to mimic a balm. The moisturizer is extremely light weight, with a nice creamy texture, I would say it feels more or less like a mousse with primer. It’s cooling and not sticky at. I love the smell of what they characterize it as “cut grass”.  Smells so fresh and calming.

This is a perfect cream for dry skin to combination skin typed people. Since I’m in the dry combination category I see myself reaching for it. At present. I’m mainly using it in the morning instead of putting loads of moisturizer. This moisturizer may seem light weight at first sight but it really gets the work of hydration done perfectly. I’m in love!

I truly think this is one of the best yet.  If you’re a total skincare product junkie, new starter to skincare or product tester, you know you don’t really need a bunch of full size skincares … let’s face it, you just won’t use them up. Here you get a nice sampling of products that are still generously sized. Good job, Caudalie! For $39 it’s a super deal.

That rounds up my latest testing of skincare by Caudalie. I hope you enjoyed and if you’re on the hunt for a good skincare, I hope this review helps.

Any favorite you’ve tried? Comment below.

BH Cosmetics Best Deals in Beauty

 

Hey guys! Why is that when you try to restrain yourself, life decides to place temptation in your way? Recently, my deal fairies brought to my attention that BH Cosmetics is having another of their super deals for products on orders $25+, I’ll show you the freebies I got as you scroll down. Technically, I was on a self-imposing ban but how can you ignore deals like that. I’m just human!

Here’s what I bought:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I got:

Total: $32.48 + shipping $11.31 – $4.99 (double deal) = US$38.80 

Freebies:

I paid only $38.80 for all these goodies. I’m a happy girl!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I want to start my post by sharing this:

It’s a new products that’ll make you scream, “Take my money!” (Apologies in advance to your bank account.)

So yes, for my first purchase, I knew I wanted to try this ever since I missed on Carli’s first Eyeshadow Palette and for $19.50 I’m down with it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I know, I know, ANOTHER Palette I can hear you say. I’ve a sickness I think but just look at this beauty.

This is a stunning palette which I’ve really obsessed with recently. I’ve already did a first impression for you guys in my previous post. So, Check out for full reviews of this palette which I’ll link it here.

The purple shadow in the middle is a worthy color from this palette. I’ve been digging in to it ever since I got it. Just swipe it on with an eyeliner brush, dab on a little bit of finishing powder to keep the color in place, and go.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My second pick is the Studio Pro Total Coverage Concealer in the shade 106 for Light to Medium and with yellow undertones. Available in 15 pale-to-dark shades, in addition to 3 color correctors in pink, yellow, and peach to accommodate all skin tones.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m pretty thrilled to have this in my makeup bag. I’ve heard many good things about it. From the color swatch which I just did, I could see myself wearing it often or my go-to on days when I’m feeling a little experimental—all at a very forgiving price point.

I’ll keep you updated of any new development after I’ve give it a proper test run.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The third item I picked is an Eye Curler. Nothing really romantic or fancy about it. It’s just an eye curler but I used it quite religiously. The hot pink color grips scream spring. I really like the girly color. It’s so cute!

For a price you can’t beat, I think this is a great eyelash curler and I know for sure that I’ll use it again and again.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m very happy to get this eye lash curler. I’ve small eyes and it fits my lash line perfectly. I appreciate the soft and comfort grips.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Last but not least is Brush #19 which I’ve been wanting to get but didn’t have the reason to, if that make any sense. But since I’ve been reaching out back to gel eyeliner, this brush comes at perfect timing. This short, firm brush allows for controlled and for extremely precise eyeliner application.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Now onto the freebies. With any purchase of $25+ you got three FREE items I mentioned above and again on closed up.

This is my 3rd Liquid Eyeliner from this brand. I went through a lot of liquid eyeliners and I couldn’t be more happy to get it for free. Seriously. I can’t say enough good things about this liner. It’s long lasting, smudge-proof and gives you a bold and dramatic look in just one stroke. I absolutely love this eyeliner.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is another freebie I got and it’s their NEW Foil Eyes To Go 6-Color Eyeshadow Palette . Available in five different mini 6-color mixes palettes. I’ve a collection of three other palettes from this line and so happy to add this to my vanity.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Yes, I’m a sucker for eyeshadows! And when it’s free, I’ll take it. The neutral colors look like they can be pigmented or sheered out so I’m really excited to try it out. I’ll do a separate post review and color swatches on all the palettes from this collection. So , don’t forget to stay tuned!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The freebies never stop! I’m not complaining either when I received a nice travel Eye Essentials To Go – 4 pieces brush set in my package. It comes with four eye brushes with a good size handle.

Since this is a freebie, you might not find this particular set online but they’re the option of 7 pieces and 3 pieces brush to choose from at a very low price.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Definitely a nice set to have for short trips. Your eye essential includes a blending brush, eye shader brush,  tapered brush and fine liner brush. With summer approaching and several plans to go travelling, I can’t wait to bring this with me in my makeup travel bag.

I’ve very good experience when shopping online. I loved how easy it was to purchase, pay, and I loved their selection. They had makeup, skincare, hair, tools…

Overall, I love shopping online at bhcosmetics.com because they always have special promo and offer great discounts. All their products are cruelty free in case you’re curious to know. So what are you waiting for, head over to their website and see for yourself. They’re running another special deals as I speak.

What other new products do you want me to review next? Comment below.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog. I hope to see you soon on my next post. Bye!

New Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition Palette by BH Cosmetics

 

What’s up you guys? Welcome back to my blog! Today’s post is going to be a very exciting one because I just received my Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition 21 Color Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette in the mail two days ago. When I opened it – my heart skip a beat.

I was going to do a different post on beauty haul but that would come shortly.

This palette is so much better than I thought given I only paid $19.50 for this palette. Hearing so many amazing things about her first palette, I can only imagine how much more awesome this palette will be. I’m shaking with excitement as I unwrapped this bad boy. SPOILER ALERT – It’s gorgeous!

Now let’s get started.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

From what I learned, the newest collaboration from BH Cosmetics and Carli Bybel is a turn up version of her previous palette. In case some of you didn’t know who Carli Bybel is, she’s a huge youtuber with over 5 million subscribers on tube.

She already has one BH collab, I never purchased it which makes this even better thing for me to get because I don’t have the original.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is a gorgeous palette, it’s luxurious and the color selections are amazing. The outside design of the packaging is cute. It’s a very large palette which I like but not practical for travel at all. It got a nice big mirror and it says “aspire to inspire”. It’s a nice cardboard packaging, it’s not going to get too dirty and you could wipe it clean.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The packaging is huge but not bulky in thickness whatsoever and there’s a magnet closure on the lid which I really appreciate.

7 new shades

Deluxe Edition has all the previous shades plus seven new shadows and three new highlighters. The shadows and highlighters marked with a smiley emoji symbol are the newbies, FYI.

In this palette EVERYTHING is creamy and buttery to perfection.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

If you guys just look at these shadows. These shadows just screams spring to me. Look at the mauvy, purple and peachy shadows. The colors are absolutely stunning just by looking at it. So, let’s into swatching.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
1st row

I’m using a finger swatch without any eye primer or eyeshadow base on my arm. I swatched the shades for you guys and as you can see the pigmentation is incredible especially those shimmery ones.

Here’s the top row of shadows. Can we just stop and be mesmerized by this rosy pink shade (second on the right). That’s such a beautiful color. So much pigment and shimmery reflect. The last one the right has the same color except it’s less of a pink that you see here.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
2nd row

I was sucked in the most by the mauvy shadows in the middle. Isn’t it an amazing color that’s perfect for spring? I’m so excited I want to play with all the shades in this palette. Don’t forget to stay tuned as I share exciting #EOTD makeup on my Instagram the coming days.

The matte shades have lovely pigmentation and blended very well in my opinion. The shimmer shades are soft, buttery and highly pigmented with no effort required to get intense color payoff. They’re just stunning!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
3rd row

The eyeshadows are mainly neutral easy-to-wear shades, making this a great palette for every day and I find myself reaching for it often.

It has pink and plum shades in addition to gold, bronze and copper. The gold color second from left is pure stunning. I really like the versatility you get from this palette.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Guys could we stop here to admire these beauty. You know that these sections are for highlighters ONLY!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The left highlighter is an icy peach highlighter that has a warm to it. The golden highlighter on the right is one of the new hues. Oh my gosh! Just look at that! It feels like they’re super intense and almost…creamy. I don’t really know how to describe this. I can’t even tell you … you definitely need to get this palette I’m telling you.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

They threw in four other incredible highlighters that are insanely gorgeous. Here’s the final row of highlighters with a new icy shade (far left) created for porcelain skin tones verse the warmer tones for women of color. I’m in love with the two middle highlighters currently. Let me know if you like to see a makeup tutorial in the comment section.

These are the most pigmented, rich and beautiful highlighter I’ve ever seen in my life. Absolutely stunning! I can tell you, the formula is out of this world. Seriously!

My two cents opinion, Carli makes it so affordable for everyone to purchase this. I’m loving the new shades of highlighters in her deluxe palette. The colors are gorgeous, and EVERY color here is usable! This palette is a steal for this price and so worth it. I can’t say enough about this palette! GO Get it!

The BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition Palette is available for $19.50 (pre-order sale) at BHCosmetics.com.
