Even if it’s clear how much you’ve help to protect my skin to continuously look and feel youthful, it certainly won’t hurt to put that feeling into words.¬†Yes, it may sounds cheesy for you but I’m going to do it anyways. Are you ready for it? Well then, let’s do this!

First off I like thank the pr company for sending this package to my mail box. I’ve always love beauty products by Sothys Paris and I’m truly lucky to have this opportunity to do a review on their newest Youth Cream skincare line.

SothysYouthCream

I can’t stress enough how important it is to take good care of your skin and making sure to protect your face with good quality formula to your skincare routine is a vital step.

Swatch

What I love about this product is the rich and creamy texture. Apart from that, this stuff is fragrance free, so it feels super gentle and kind on the skin which I really appreciate. The formula is so soft and smooth in consistency as if you’re wearing silk on your skin.

Creamytexture

The formula is infused with two botanical active ingredients which helps fight against oxidative stress and signs of chronological ageing. I’ve been using it for more than a month and have been loving it so much. You got to try it!

Micellar Cleansing Waters are products I use on a daily basis. I like using cleansing water because it’s not too harsh for my skin. You see, winter weather makes my skin ultra dry so I try not to add unnecessary cream products that makes it worst. On a contrary, I seek anything hydrating for my thirsty skin.

You can either use this stuff with a cotton pad or muslin cloth and then go ahead to remove all the makeup residues off the face.

MicellarWater

You light up my life with this magic formula. My skin doesn’t feel overly dry with the micellar water.

Sothys Paris Youth Cream
*Deluxe Samples

I can wear you all day. You must noticed that I’m obsessed with every single Sothys products that exist. I’m going to talk about this two deluxe sample products that I was excited to try them out as well.

Restructuring Youth Cream –¬†to restore, fight¬†against visible signs of ageing: wrinkles, even deep ones and skin slackening.

Redentifying Youth Cream –¬†¬†is to regenerate,¬†restore a radiant complexion that is full of vitality while reducing the visible signs of ageing. For each has its own functions but bottom line is to help keep your youth.

As with all Sothys products, this restructuring and redensifying youth cream are a lot pricey than your average drugstore. But if you’re looking for a youth cream that really does a fab job to fight the signs of ageing then these products are for you!

What I love about this Sothys Paris is that the formula feels like silk and consists of top notch BP3 Tri-Complex ingredients.¬†I’m so lucky that I’ve the chance to try you out and I urge those of you who wish to keep your real age to yourselves … definitely give this one a go!

So those are a few of my top new high end skincare products. I’d love to know if you guys have any recommendation products that I should try.¬†Don’t forget to share in the comment section which product is your favorite?

Thanks again for staying with me till the end and I love you very much [muak]! Until next time.

Sharon xoxo

 

Also available in the new range are the Vitality, Firming, Restructuring and Redentifying Youth Creams. You can find them in institute and spas throughout Canada.

Skincare Junkie Must Haves|#BlogmasBagMonday 3

 

Hey everyone! Welcome back to #BlogmasBagMonday 3. In today’s series, I’m going to be talking about my winter skincare because since I’m spending a lot of my winter at home trying out lots of new skincare products from brands that were sent to me. You guys know that I love skincare and I’m slightly high maintenance so after trying out these products for the past one to three weeks or so. I’m here to share the good news with you guys.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

But before we jump in, I’ve a confession to make. I got ahead of myself with all these blogmas thingy and out of excitement I went ahead and pulished a bonus post on the Bochery’s skincare product review. If you’re interested to read more about my two cents opinion, just click to the link.

#Blogmasbadmonday #3

Long story short, instead of only two skincare products, I decided to throw in an extra two more products from Fresh¬†to talk about this week. Most of the stuff here, I’ve tried for more than a week and some much longer.

Fresh Rose Deep Hydration cream

I love this Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream a lot and definitely go through it pretty quickly since winter make my skin really dry and I need all the protection this deep I could get and this moisturizing cream is the answer.

I can feel a litle tingle when I first had it on but this product really make my skin feel so good and moist. It’s quite rich and it’s really hydrating, so I love that. It’s super effective and after you use this your skin will be the softest it has ever been.¬†If you’ve never tried it, definitely go check it out. Love this stuff!

Fresh Vit Nectar moisture glow
*pr sample

This is the Fresh Vitamin Nectar Moisture Glow Face Cream and this is when I go out to the grocery or pick up my kid. I adore the fruity scents of nectar, it smells amazing! The texture is just incredibily lightweight and it’s just another moisturizing cream that I wear on top of the deep hydration face cream I was talking about earlier.

I really really love this citrusy scent of the face cream. It’s nourshing but not heavy which is a really good thing. This stuff will leave your skin with that healthy looking glow but most importantly, it does keep my skin moist in the day. It’s a perfect gift for any skin type.

The cutest thing in this series is the Soy Face Cleansing Milk. I got this from my Sephora Favorite Ultimate Skincare Vault box awhile back and I finally get the chance to try it out recently. Normally to remove my makeup, I of course have my favorite drugstore makeup removing cleanser but since trying out this stuff¬†I find¬†myself reaching for the latter one more. With this cleanser, you can actually smell the soy milk and floral scents that I really liked. It’s super effective to remove your makeup and leaving your skin squeaky clean. I just love it! I’ve been using it non-stop and will be going back to get the full size for sure.

Fresh Instant Glow highlighter
*pr sample

Lastly, we’re on to makeup stuff now. Last but not least is the Fresh Face Instant Glow Luminizer in Sunset that I’ve been so obsessed with.¬†It comes in a tube packaging and I find it to be very convenient to bring anywhere I go.

I just want to show you how insanely glowy this highlighter was. Can we just take a few minutes to admire it! This stuff is so pigmented, a little goes a long way.¬†This is the one that kind of rose gold in color highlighter. I was expecting it to be subtle and not expect it to be more like pop. I need glow a lot of these days of my life and this is just perfect. I think there’s only two colors that I know of. The other one is Starlight which is more of a white silver. I love that and this is so good!¬†I like to dab it on my cheekbones, nose and cupid’s bow as highlighter. So this is definitely one of my favorite highlighter.

To me that’s a few things that I think any skincare junkies would need and appreciate. I don’t know if it’s a must haves for you but it’s like how a huge skincare junkie would need. So I hope you found this useful and definitely check them out at Fresh or Sephora website.

Let me know if you’re a skincare junkie and let me know what are your must-haves skincare products in the comment below.

I really love all the products I’ve tried from this brand and all my other products that only skincare junkie will understand. So that’s everything on this week’s Blogmas Bag Monday. I hope you guys enjoyed reading this and don’t forget to check back next week for the final series of Blogmas Bag Monday week #4.

The products that I’ll be trying for our next and last Blogmas Bag Monday #4 is this.

An Introduction to Boch√©ry Lab Esth√©tique

 

Hey guys! Since December is a Blogmas month, I thought it would be nice for me to add another bonus post for you guys. The other week I was lucky enough to receive a package containing some top up skincare products that I’m excited to test them out.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
*PR Samples

This is my first time trying out the Nano Face Lab product line by Boch√©ry. They’re full size products and comes in a nice metallic grey tube packaging which I find it to be convenient and travel friendly.

nano firming neck

The first product I want to talk to you about is the Firming Neck &¬†D√©collet√© Cream works as an agent to help delay double chin and decreases the wrinkles of the neck and¬†d√©collet√© (low neckline). I love using firming neck cream in my evening skincare routine just before going to bed. As we age, overtime the skin around the neck will lose its tone and firmness. I’ve seen that on my mom and my aunts and let me tell you that it’s never to early to take care of your skin and the neck area properly.

firming neck swatch Bochery

The creamy formula feels feather light on the skin one might mistaken it for a gel silicone base but it’s not. It has a nice scents that’s so relaxing. I’ve tested this product for a week now and I like how my skin toned up but I think it’s still too early for me to conclude if this product really helps on skin firming or not. I’ll be back to report more of the updates in the coming weeks.

Nano Anti-Age Cream

I’ve always wanted to use Anti-Age Cream on a daily basis and after using this stuff for more than a week my fine lines skin days are finally over. I completely adores this cream. The formula feels moisturizing and so good on the skin. I notice my skin looking more radiant and it doesn’t feel so dry as before. I’ll definitely adding this to my skincare routine.

Swatch anti wrinkle cream

I like wearing it on a bare face but you can wear it over the top of your makeup so do whatever floats your boat. All in all I love this stuff!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Last but not least is the¬†Boch√©ry¬†Anti-Wrinkle Lift Serum that I’ve been so obsessed with since I started using it. This serum helps to target on my fine lines that need the most attention. I like to wear it under my night cream. It feels cooling when I first applied them. It absorbs fast and I can immediately see the revitalized effect almost immediately. I’m quite impressed with the performance so far.

Bocheryliftserumpump

I appreciate tube packaging that comes in a pump format. It makes life so much easier. Just one pump is all you need for the entire face.¬†So definitely give this a go if you’re on the market for a heavy duty lift serum.

So there you’ve it, some of the products that I’ve acquired from Boch√©ry lately. If you’re new to this brand then make sure you try some of the products I’ve mentioned above.

Thanks so much for stopping by and read. I hope you find this post helpful and comment below which ones are your favorites and if there’s anything you think I need to try next!

Drugstore Mini Haul|Aveeno First Impression

 

Hey everyone! The past weekend shopping involves a stop to my local drugstore to pick up a few skincare products to try out for you guys. I was tempted to go all the way out but reminded myself that I’ve way too many skincare products, and I opted for just two products that I actually need right now.

Aveeno Brand Spotlight skincare

If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know I’m obsessed with pretty much every Aveeno product new or old. I’m at that age where taking care of my skin is no longer an option but a necessity. I’ve been loving their products since day one of my blogging days and none has yet to disappoint. It’s safe for me to say that Aveeno is an amazing drugstore brand when it comes to being affordable and convenient.

Long story short,¬†I picked up Aveeno Makeup Removing Cleanser and their Fresh Essentials Daily Exfoliating Scrub which I’ve been so excited to try out.

Aveeno tone corrector
#Press Sample

This is the only one that was sent to me previously by some sort of a pr package but the other two items I got them from the drugstore. And it’s the Targeted Tone Corrector to helps even tone and fade the dark spots.¬†I’m thankful to be sent this product and thrilled to try out.

Tone corrector aveeno posivitely radiant

I’d have to say that I’m quite surprised with the formula of this corrector. I was expecting it to be a little thicker in consistency to other products that I’ve tried but this one is¬† just right. It’s a thin cream that dries up fast which is good since you’re supposed to use it in addition to the moisturizer and other makeup stuff. It has a natural and mild scents that’s not irritating nor too overwhelming. I find it pleasant and quite like it to be honest.

It says on the packaging to apply directly to areas with uneven tone and dark spots twice a day before your moisturizer.

There’s a particular uneven skin tone on my left cheek that I want it gone. So, I’m going to continue testing it out and update you guys with the development in another 2-3 weeks.

Aveeno makeup removing cleanser

My current favorite go to Makeup Removing Cleanser has to be the Aveeno Positively Radiant for smooth and soft skin. The soy extract works incredibly well to remove makeup and cleans my skin while keeping it radiant.

makeup removing cleanser aveeno

Trust me, this cleanser is gentle and it cleans all the makeup and residues right away leaving skin smooth and soft. Just look at this insanely glorious foaming happening here. My skin is screaming with joy right now.

For the purpose of this first impression review, I did my makeup early in the morning and then use this makeup remover to cleanse my entire face and it works so well. I’m pleasantly surprised on how effective it cleans and make my skin feels so fresh and not drying at all. My skin feels really good, I mean it feels great!

Don’t take my word for it, you gotta try it. It’s really that good!

Aveeno exfoliating scrub

I was looking for an exfoliator that’s more natural and I really like this daily scrub. The mini beads are quite subtle and gentle that it’s hardly noticeable compares to other brands that I’ve tried in the past. It says on the packaging that it’s for daily exfoliating but I’m going to stick with my routine of 2-3 times a week.

One thing to remember is that this is a exfoliating scrub and not a cleanser so don’t expect it to foam or lather.¬†I’ve had no break outs or dryness while using this. I can immediately notice the difference on my skin tone after I exfoliate and rinsed. My skin looks brighter and feels so smooth. It feels like a layer of protection covering them.

Scrub Aveeno fresh essentials

I love the amazing scents and the mild texture is just so relaxing while leaving my skin feeling fresh, clean and smooth. The scents doesn’t bother me at all because I love a good fresh and clean smell after cleaning. I’m not overly concerned with scented skincare when it comes to all natural ingredients used in making of these products. I’m not telling you this is good or bad, you’ve to decide it for yourself. All I’m saying is that it has a¬† fragrance, a little on the strong side so if you’re sensitive to that then this may not be for you. But if you’re like me and love a nice scented southernwood plants than you’re going to like this one.

This really met all my expectations and I’m excited to try more stuff from Aveeno. You can find all the products I mentioned here at your local drugstores or nearby Walmart.

Have you tried any of Aveeno’s product yet? What are some of your favorites? Leave me a comment and tell me down below!

Thank you so much for stopping by to read. I hope you find this post helpful and until next time, stay beautiful.

P.s. Stay tuned to the new series of Blogmas Bag Monday coming up soon!

The Cr√®me de la Cr√®me of Beauty|The Cr√®me Shop

 

Ever since I discovered Korean cosmetics and especially I realised the importance of having a regular skincare routine, every morning and every evening I perform something like a beauty ritual which I truly enjoy. While I was looking for inspiration, I stumbled upon this¬†Rose Oil Overnight Gel Mask¬†at Marshall’s. I’m very much into face mask lately so I bought it in a heart beat and was pleased I did.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

You’ve been following my blog you ‘ll know that I’m an avid advocate of moisturizing, thus a lot of the skincare I use or mention can be used irrespect of young or mature skin. But today I’m just going to talk about one product and it’s the Overnight Gel Mask.

Let’s jump right in:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It comes in a fairly large jar for C$9.99 worth. Though it’s called a gel mask but it looks more like a jar of jelly actually. If you poke it, it wobbles and return to its original shape like before.

The Creme Shop in a jar

The smell of the rose oil is really amazing and it’s not overpowering at all.¬†I like how it smells and the rose petals in the mask.¬†It’s great in helping skin calm down and depuff. I like the finishing touch of putting on my gel mask as the last step in my routine and allow it to work overnight without the need to rinse. You wake up the next morning with a hydrated and noticeably brighter skin that you’re skin will be grateful for.

Depuffing & anti-inflamatory gel mask

I’ve been using this mask for the past 2 weeks and I can tell you this stuff really works on my uneven skin. Anti-inflammatory helps reduces spots on certain area of my face which is quite impressive but in terms of depuffing I didn’t see much of a difference except some improvement on my under eyes feels cool and visibly look brighter. This product dries up quickly so you don’t have to worry it comes off your cheek onto your pillow.

Ingredients: Water, Dipropylene Glycol, PEG-240/HDI Copolymer Bis-Decyltetradeceth-20 Ether, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glycerin, PEG-100 Stearate, macadamia Integrifolia Seed Oil, Dimethicone, Glyceryl Stearate, Glycereth-26, Caprylyl Glycol, Allantoin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Caprylhydroxamic Acid, Adenosine, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Fragrance, Butylene Glycol, Disodium EDTA, Rosa Centifolia Flower Water, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Hyaluronate, CI 16185.

Texture gel mask

This cream really impressed me to no end. It’s ridiciously amazing!

The best thing about this product is that it works! And so I urge you to go and get it today! The Créme Shop is a reliable brand and they believe that products should never be tested on animals. I love this brand and plan on buying more products

If you’ve any Korean skincare products that you like me to try, pleases share them in the comments.

Top Box Luxury Essentials LE

 

Hey everybody! Thanks so much for stopping by and here’s the story I’ve been getting more requests to feature a more luxury brand makeup on my blog. I’m talking brands like Bobbi Brown, GlamGlow, Darphin and more from this box that’s I’ll be talking here in this blog.

TOPBOX Luxury Essentials

I do understand your concern to know whether products like this are really much better than the products you can get from the drugstore. You know that I’m very familiar with what’s happening at the drugstore but admittedly I haven’t tried or dabbled quite enough products from very high end price range just so you know.

TOPBOX PR samples
#press samples

I’ve been experimenting them on and off for about the past weeks so let’s jump in.

First thing first, I’ll show you what’s in this Luxury Essentials box.

#TOPBOX BEAUTY BOX
Deluxe & Mini size samples
  • Smashbox¬†| Photo Finish Foundation Primer (7.1mL deluxe sample)
  • Bobbi Brown¬†| Crushed Lip Colour – Ruby (2.25g¬†deluxe sample)
  • Darphin¬†| Exquis√Ęge Beauty Revealing Cream¬†(4mL deluxe sample)
  • Est√©e Lauder |¬†Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex ll (7mL deluxe sample)
  • Clinique¬†| TAKE THE DAY OFF MAKEUP REMOVER (50mL deluxe sample)
  • GlamGlow¬†|¬†SUPERMUD (15g deluxe sample)

CLINIQUE MAKEUP REMOVER

First thing I like to talk about is the Clinique Take the day off Makeup Remover. Whenever anyone asks me which oil free makeup remover I’d recommend, I pretty much always say Clinique.

I’ve just went through my first bottle recently and was pleased when I received a deluxe size sample as back up. This is my favorite makeup remover this month. I use it on my eyes, lips and even on my face and it does a great job in removing all. I don’t have to rub my eyeballs out with this product. A gentle wipes is all it takes to remove all your stubborn eye makeup. It does seems a little pricey for a makeup remover but it totally worth it on how well it performs. This stuff is magic!

GLAMGLOW FACE TREATMENT

GlamGlow Supermud Clearing Treatment¬†is a little bit on a hefty price but I’ve good experience with this product so far. It’s my third time trying it last week and I actually like it. It cleans my pores out like no other while giving it a blur out look. I notice the blackheads around my nose is not visible. The smell reminds me of the chinese herbal roots medicine that my granny used to brew when I was little. It’s not terrible actually, you just got to get used to it. This product dries up pretty quickly on the skin so, be sure to apply it fast then leave it on for 5-20 minutes and let it do its magic. You might feel a little tingling for a second or two as the mud started to do its thing. My skin felt really clean after this, I mean really really clean and soft.¬†

If you’ve sensitive skin then you might want to skip on this one.

ESTEE LAUDER ADVANCED NIGHT REPAIR

Moving on is the Advanced Night Repair by Estee Lauder. I just want to say tell you guys upfront that his product is not new to me. I’ve used it long before I started blogging and have been loving it since then. I just felt like I didn’t have a great opportunity to talk about it until now. So here we go! I’m going to say that this repair serum is a hidden gem type of status.

I had first wore this product it my late twenties, and fast forward to today I’m revisiting a product that I truly love. When I got this sample, I immediately start using it. I’m so impressed with the improvement on my skin. I notice my skin looks radiant and smooth in texture wise. A flashback on why I love it was because this serum really helps reduce fine lines on my forehead significantly.¬† I was glad I started early with this product. It works great and I highly recommend it! It’s like walking back on memory lane.

DARPHIN SKINCARE
Exquis√Ęge Beauty Revealing Serum

My first time trying out this brand by Darphin is awesome. As we all know, skincare product is something that just can’t be a one time thing because it needs time to work. . So, let just say that I’m in the stage of figuring it out now but I can tell you that after using it for about two weeks now, I notice my skin feels firmer and less dull.

It’s a lightweight gel that keeps my skin feeling well hydrated. It’s not greasy or drying at all in case you’re curious to know. I can’t stop falling in love with this heavenly scents. It smell so so good! For product that really works,¬†I would change my skincare regimen for this. Major thumbs up from me!

SMASHBOX PHOTO FINISH PRIMER

In this box you’ll also get a mini size version of the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer. This product has been in the market for a while and a lot of people has been talking about it.¬†I’ve heard many mixed reviews about this product but I’m one of the many that find this primer works well on me.

I wore it again for my daughter’s birthday dinner last night and I got so many compliments on my flawless makeup.¬†This primer is a dream come true. It’s super lightweight, feels wonderfully silky and gives my skin a flawless look. I’ve never felt anything quite like it before and it felt almost high-tech in my opinion. What do you think? Have you tried this primer before? Share it in the comments below.

I like to apply them all over my face. You just need a small pea size product to cover the whole face. Once set, I go ahead to apply my foundation and the rest of my makeup. This primer is a universal translucent gel that works for every skin tone. Perfect!

BOBBI BROWN LIPSTICK

I usually buy lipsticks in mauve nude or classic red so when I saw this in my TopBox essentials I just flipped out. A gorgeous mini by¬†Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color in the shade Ruby. It’s described as a mid-tone ruby red.

Lately I’ve been rocking on some of my favorite darker red and berry lipsticks and since you guys like the lip swatches I did on my previous posts. I thought I’d put a #LOTD in this post as well.

#LOTD Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip
#LOTD in the shade Ruby

I gave it a whirl and boy look how pretty is this! It’s definitely ruby on my lips you guys. The formula goes on sheer and pigmented. It feels very comfortable on the lips. It’s save to say it qualifies for MLBB (My Lips But Better) lipstick.¬†A smooth, sheer and satin shade that¬†I think will look great on anyone this holiday seasons. You need to try Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color if you haven’t already.

Do let me know in the comment if you like to see this type of post again or just sprinkle in more luxury product reviews on my blog. Bear in mind that I’m by no means abandoning drugstore like that’s my happy place.

What do you think? Would you pick up this box? Let me know in the comments!

I’m just happy with these products. Many thanks to TOPBOX for these gorgeous press samples.¬†You can enjoy a 15% off your first purchase with the offer code TOPBOX15!¬†

Thank you guys for taking the time to read and I hope this was helpful for you. I’ll talk to you guys very soon. Bye!

Korean Sheet Mask Inoface Cosmetics

 

Hey everyone! Today I’m going to talk about a face mask that I just picked up last Friday from a Korean grocery store and I’ve been loving it since.

Vitamin Essence Sheet Mask

Introducing you to Inoface Cosmetics Vitamin Essence Mask Sheet. It retails for $0.99/sachet with a net wt of 0.71 oz.¬†I’ve tried the Modeling Cup Pack from this brand prior and have been liking them so far. So today I’m going to share with you everything I’ve experienced with this sheet mask.

Let’s get right into it.

Inoface cosmetics sheet mask

Even though you keep it at your room temperature, it feels really cool when you put on your face. This sheet mask is neither too thick nor thin in texture which I really appreciate. It feels heavy because it holds a load of juicy vitamin on it. It was practically dripping when I pulled it out from the package. You can imagine how much all these goodness your skin is going to get. It got so much essencey liquid at the bottom so when you take it out you put it on you face right, everything else I applied it on my neck like a body lotion. There’s so much you can get from it, it’s worth everything!

Inoface description

Look at the back of the packaging. It has instructions and the ingredients used.

This product contain vitamins and other plant ingredients that are effective in soothing and moisturizing the skin, which are absorbed deep into the skin, making your loose skin elastic and lustrous. Also available from this line is their Aloe, Cucumber, Collagen and Snail range. 

Direction to sheet mask

It looks like a normal cotton sheet mask to me. The english instruction says best to put it on for 10-20 minutes. Remove it and pat the remaining essence for your skin to absord all of it.

These are so soothing and my skin feels so happy after that. So these are really good!

Korean Sheet Mask Inoface
Scary mask (Boo!)  Perfect for halloween!!!

I really love this and will be going back to grab a few more. I need more Vitamin than that to keep my skin soothe, moisturized and firm.

Inoface Cosmetics has it’s own website here.¬†

Have you tried any Korean mask products lately? If yes, which brand is your favorite. Share it on the comment below.

Thank you guys for always reading, please comment and subscribe. I hope you guys enjoyed reading my opinion and how this product works for me. In the meantime come and say hi!

Beauty Starts with Laneige Brightening Kit

 

When it comes to Korean Skincare, Laneige is up on top of my favorite brands. Laneige’s first launched their “Everyday New Face” campaign in 1994. And only in the year 2014 to present day that they make their first entrance to U.S and Canada. Available in Sephora and major stores.

Laneige Brightening Kit

Let me introduce you to their Bright Renew Line¬† today. I got the Laneige Brightening Kit¬†from Sephora while ago but just didn’t got the chance to do a post review. So today I’ve put together a post to tell a little bit more about some of my skincare favorites from the line in case you’re interested to try any out.

Laneige Renew Serum

First product I’m going to talk about in no particular order is the Laneige Bright Renew Original Serum. ¬†The formula is of milky serum with a pump applicator to dispense product.¬†This serum contains a rich antioxidants such as ginkgo bibola that helps the reverse signs of aging to your skin.¬†It feels lightweight on my skin and it’s not greasy at all. I do love how it gives my skin that healthy glow look that’s hydrating and yet brightening. ¬†Applaud goes to Laneige for keeping a high standard serum! If you’re looking for a serum that’s brightening and smells amazing, I highly recommend this.

Laneige Renew Brightening Cream

Moving on is the Laneige Bright Renew Original Cream. This deluxe size sample comes in a tube packaging while the full size is in a heavy glass jar with a spatula. The formula is soft and light. I would say the texture is like kind of gel-cream hybrid.

On application this product is sort of water upon application and dries to a lovely silky finish. It also gives a cooling sensation just like all other products from the same line. Let me tell you, I’m obsessed with the scents. As with everything with Laneige, the smell is delicious.

Laneige Sleeping Mask

Laneige Water Sleeping Mask is so lightweight and has that cooling effect that relaxes your skin. I love using a light mask as part of my evening routine and this product is a dream come true. The formula is a gel-type that provides intensive hydration, vitality, and brightening effect.

This stuff is so dreamy! I went through it so fast this summer that I’m already on my second jar. I like to use it on dry winter nights too. It’s non-greasy nor sticky and perfect for all skin types. If you’re someone who dreads putting heavy moisturizers, then this product is for you. There’s a reason why this is Laneige best-selling product. I love it and I know you’re going to love it too.

Laneige Multi-Cleanser

Last pit stop on our Beauty Starts … is the Laneige Multi Cleanser. I’m really impressed with this foaming cleanser. It smells so good and it lathe to a creamy foam with just a tiny bit. A little goes a long way with this product. It make my face really clean and a brightening effect after. As for the scents, I’m pleased to say that it doesn’t cause any breakout on me. One thing I noticed is that I feel this product could make my skin feel dryer and that’s about it. Since I’ve the Bright Renew Original Cream, I apply it all over my skin and I can feel the immediate effect of the products being absorb. Such hydration and nourishment that my skin needs.

I’ll leave you here to define your own beauty but as for me, I know mine starts with Laneige. How about you? Share it below. ¬†

YSL L'Homme L'Intense Eau de Parfum

Last but not least is this YSL L’Homme¬†L’Intense Eau De Parfum which I claimed using my Sephora Reward Points with the purchase.

After I got past the gorgeousness of this hexagon shape like bottle – I gave this fragrance a whirl. If you’ve been following my blog you know that I love the scents of men Eau De Parfum on my man and well on myself too if I may. I really like mens fragrance a lot more over womens. I just love the fresh woody and light musky scents.¬†Not ashamed to admit it but I know I’m weird.

I mentioned before and again today that¬†perfume is considered something personal that reflects the character of an individual. Finding that perfect scent can be difficult but when someone finds the perfect perfume he tends to wear the same fragrance for years. It becomes part of the individual’s identity each and every day.

When I first wear it I don’t know what to expect but I wasn’t expecting this. This eau de parfum can be described as “An ambery woody notes bursting with character, featuring sensual and vibrant leather accords. The fragrance is infused with precious ingredients of orange blossom facet reinforced by profound, subtle cedar wood”. Oh how I love thee! I want to smell this on my man every single day moving forward. It’s really a masculine perfume one that’s sophisticated and expresses a more powerful character.

The small size and good value make good sense especially I love everything in this travel kit. I’m a fan of Laneige and it will continue to stay in my top favorites Korean brand.

What do you think of the Laneige product review? Have you tried it before or will you want to try it now? Share your comments below.

I hope this was helpful for you guys. Thank you so much for taking your time to read. I really appreciate it. Bye guys!

Neutrogena Back To School Supplies

 

Back To School for most people is all about shopping for school supplies but don’t forget to shop for your skin care products while you there. Imagine all the stress and anxiety of going to high school. So exciting and nerve breaking too am I right! Having said that, with high stress, the uninvited guest usually pops out of nowhere. That’s right, I’m talking about acne.

Neutrogena skincare products

It seems that Neutrogena is killing it with their Back To School Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne product lines. I’ve high hope on all these product samples I received from the PR company. Huge shout out to the team!

rapid clear cleanser

Do you ever have a feeling of deja vu? Drugstore skincare products are starting to feel like this to me. I love talking skincare with you guys in my blog. Since summer will be over soon I thought of sharing some products that will make your back to school easy peasy.

These works amazingly well. I typically don’t get pimples but when I do I use this to help get rid of them:

NEUTROGENA¬ģ¬†Rapid Clear¬ģ¬†Stubborn Acne¬ģ¬†Cleanser

A cleanser that works to remove dry and uneven patches. With only a few wash I started to notice some of my uneven skin disappears. The formula work well with my skin and I’m so glad it did. If you’re a combo to dry skin type with moderate acne problem then you’re going to find this product helps. Worth checking it out.

rapid clear leave on mask

NEUTROGENA¬ģ¬†RAPID CLEAR¬ģSTUBBORN ACNE DAILY LEAVE-ON MASK

I like to wear this every once a week in the morning especially when I know I’ll be indoors most of the day. You just wet your hands and then apply the product all over the face. Once it dries up, you get a smooth and powdery finish feel to it.

rapid clear spot gel

NEUTROGENA¬ģ¬†RAPID CLEAR¬ģSTUBBORN ACNE SPOT GEL

My skin has been good these past months and since I don’t have any breakouts or pimples I’m not able to test out this spot gel to its fullest accuracy. But if you’re on the lookout for something that has benzoyl peroxide than look no further.

Neutrogena claims this product helps clear breakouts with maximum strength and reduce the signs of stubborn breakouts. It’s required that you wash your hands every time before applying products to sensitive skins. Keep your hands away from pimples for your skins sake. Use spot gel instead.¬†Neutrogena is a drugstore brand I trust.

acne correct and cover neutrogena

NEUTROGENA¬ģ¬†OIL FREE ACNE CORRECT & COVER PINK GRAPEFRUIT MOISTURIZER

I can’t stress enough my obsession for BB cream or tinted moisturizer and when I saw this in the pr box I was elated with the prospect of trying these bad boys out. Love the lighweight formula and coverage. It makes my skin looks more even and it feels really nice having this moisturizer on.¬†At $8.97 a tube you can’t go wrong with that!

neutrogena bb cream

Available in 2 shades.¬†Fair to Light and Medium to Tan. Can’t find your perfect shade, you can mix and match to your desirable skin color. This line is great for sensitive or acne prone skin types, I recommend you look in your local drugstore.

As usual, let me know what you think. Which product will you likely pick for yourself or your loved ones? I’d love to know in the comments.

Thank you guys for always reading, please comment and subscribe. I hope you guys enjoyed hearing my opinion and seeing how these products works for me. I’ve some exciting things coming up, some fun stuff that I’ve been working on and I cant’ wait to show it to you. So, I’ll talk to you guys again a later post.

Aveeno anti aging products
#Press Samples

A huge thanks to the PR company that sent me this packaging recently. They sent me four skincare products by Aveeno and¬†the first thing that I’ve with me here is the Absolutely Ageless Eye Cream, ¬†Moisturizing Cleanser, Intensive Renewal Serum and last but not least is the Restorative Night Cream. Thank you so much!

I’m so excited to try these out.

aveeno cleanser

The first product I wanted to talk about is the Moisturizing Cleanser that they claims to removes 99% of skin-aging impurities.

As you can see, this product comes in a nice bottle with a pump applicator. I like that the packaging is travel friendly since it has a lock mechanism. The product is gel-like but a little too runny in my opinion. It smells wonderful and it leaves a soft feel on my skin after rinsing. The scent is totally mesmerizing!

I’ve added this to my daily skin care routine and have been very pleased with the results. This product doesn’t dry out the face and it’s very gentle for all skin types.

#aveeno renewal serum

New

This is definitely the biggest thrills of the lot. I’ve always been looking for a serum that actually works on my skin and I’m so glad it did. I applied as directed and it quickly absorbs into skin. I really appreciate that the formula feels lightweight and it’s 100% non-greasy. It has a nice scents that’s not overly powering.

“This serum is formulated with Aveeno‚Äôs Active Naturals Blackberry Complex which is full of antioxidants, vitamins and other anti-aging ingredients.” As many of you might’ve already know, I’ve combination to dry skin – this helps strengthen the natural moisture barrier is something which my dry skin department truly need help in.

I’ve been using this serum for the past two weeks and my skin is loving it so far. Whether you’re in your early twenties or late forties, I recommend giving this serum a try. This one does fit the bill.

aveeno eye cream

New

“This product gave result that other people noticed.” My fine lines reduced considerably after a week of test run. It’s one of the best anti-aging products out there if you asked me

It comes in an opaque squeeze tube packaging. What I really like about this eye cream is that it’s fragrance-free and lightweight with a silky texture to it. Works so well under makeup and the brightening effect can visibly improve the appearance of dark circles.

aveeno night cream

New

It says¬†AVEENO¬ģ¬†Absolutely Ageless‚ĄĘ¬†Restorative Night Cream is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Their Natural Active ingredients of Blackberry Complex helps nourish skin by reducing the visible effect of elastin and collagen loss.

night cream texture

I love products that smell nice and this definitely is one of them. With my combination to dry skin, I appreciate how the formula absorbed into my skin. I’m impressed by how well this night cream hydrates. It soaks right in while leaving my skin feeling really soft and smooth. This is a keeper!

I truly enjoy using all the products from Aveeno. It’s a drugstore brand that I trust when it comes to quality and affordability.

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‚Äôt 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‚Äôre 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!!!

Youtube Made Me Buy It – Makeup Products

 

Hi guys! If you’ve been following my blog, you may already know that I’m a makeup addict, and for most of you who have no knowledge of my beauty product addition! Just so that you know, in fact next to reading blog posts on all different topics, watching beauty bloggers on YouTube is¬†something else that I love. And yes, I take their opinions seriously!

I found out, on YouTube of course, makeup products they swear by it. So, here’s Youtube made me buy it products.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I did my Sephora online order recently using ebates cash back for 4% returns and for those of you who aren’t familiar with ebates, click here to find out more. I’ll also put a link down below if you care to check it out. In case you’re wondering, no I’m not paid or affiliated with ebates. I’m sharing¬†good news¬†of earning cash back as you shop.

Sorry I went tangent, let’s get back to the point.¬†I got¬†Nars Radiant Concealer and Sephora Matte Lip Color, while the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea skincare travel set has been sitting in the storage room¬†for a couple of months¬†because I didn’t got the time¬†to¬†try all of them out. So sorry about that guys! There are so many products¬†that I wanted to¬†test run for you guys but with so little time.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Sephora Luster Matte Long Wear Lip Color in Ruby Luster. You can get them at Sephora and there’s 12 colors to choose from.

I’ve never tried any Sephora brand lipsticks before and I was super excited to give this a test run the moment I got it in my hot paws.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I really like the applicator because it’s a flat doe tip so it’s very easy to line your lips and just turn it over flat to fill in the color. It doesn’t have any scents at all, that’s actually a good thing because like most¬†lip products the scents lingers.

What is it? 

  • It‚Äôs a matte liquid lipstick with a subtle sheen
  • It‚Äôs long wearing and hydrating
  • Has rose seed hip oil
  • $16 at Sephora

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It’s the most pretty bold matte color that you¬†must have in your life. ¬†The color is so pigmented¬†and long wearing. Definitely feels lightweight on the lips as if not wearing anything at all. I like how comfortable it make my lips feel. It doesn’t feel sticky¬†whatsoever¬†but you’ve to be extra careful when applying this. A precision hand is required so that the product won’t stick on your teeth. Overall, I find it glides on smoothly¬†and the best thing is that it gives you a pretty nice kissable lips. Don’t you think?

LOTD

It doesn’t dry down to completely matte¬†as you can see here, I actually kind of like the slight luster of it. It’s subtle and not drying on lips and it doesn’t give the matte finish I was expecting. I wore it¬†the other day when I picked up my son and I got so many compliments from other moms.

Bottom line: This is not really a con because it says it’s a luster matte. So it’s not Matte guys. If you want matte go for the Matte Lip Creams by sephora collection. In conclusion, I really love this lip color. It looks flattering on me and the claims are on point. So yay!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in the shade Custard. I got a deluxe size for now because I want to try out this shade before committing to the full size.

I think this is the product that I’m most excited out of my¬†three purchase. I’ve been wanting to try out Nars¬†concealer for a while now and this will hopefully be one of my first purchases in the line if all goes well.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I‚Äôm always on the hunt for new concealer¬†products to try, so when I saw one of my favorite youtuber¬†raved about it, I’m down to give it a shot. I’ve been dying to try this out and boy was¬†I impressed with the full coverage on the under eye areas. It’s creamy and works very well with any foundation. I didn’t notice any crease or crack from this product.¬†Also, it’s multi functional which I really appreciate.

Let me just say that this is a pretty custard shade which I really like. I really like that it covers my dark under eyes circle very well¬†and it looks¬†fresh on the skin. I want to point it out that the formula could be a little bit thick and heavy but if you use a beauty blender like I did to blend, you wouldn’t have any problem because it blends out really easily.

I’ll definitely get a full size tube on this one.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea in Make a Splash Hydrating Skin Saver travel set (LE).¬†Whew! That’s quite a mouthful! I got the set awhile ago and the last time I checked, they’ve something similar which is also a limited edition of the¬†Hydration Vacation Skincare travel set.

This product has me very excited.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Drink of H2O Hydrating Boost Moisturizer¬†–¬†My skin has always been at some¬†level of dehydration. That’s part¬†of the reason with me having a dry to combination skin. At my age,¬†I’ve lost the overproduction of oil and developed dryness quite drastically. So, I was very keen to give it a test run.

It’s thin and gel like but it’s very hydrating. This is a formula that dry skin users will benefit most from. It quickly absorbs into skin without leaving been greasy or oily.¬†It just leave my skin with a nice glow that isn’t shiny but dewy finish.¬†It‚Äôs actually great for both day¬†and night use which is a rarity in the gel moisturizer world .

Another thing I want to mention is that it has a slight lavender scents which I¬†wouldn’t be very concerned about. But if you’re someone who doesn’t like scented or fragrance smell in your skincare products then you might want to skip this.

All in all, I’m very happy to have try this.¬†It‚Äôs a very nice gel moisturizer and considerably more hydrating than other gel moisturizers I‚Äôve had the pleasure of using in the past.¬†This is such a great treat for¬†my dry skin.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Deep Dive Cleansing Gel¬†–¬†It removes make-up and leaves my skin feeling clean & baby soft.¬†One important factor is the fragrance. This is ‚Äúlavender oil-infused‚ÄĚ and has a lavender that‚Äôs very pretty and relaxing. However, like I mentioned earlier if you’re sensitive users then you might not love this.

A product that marketed for all skin-types. It claims to remove makeup, soften, hydrate and brighten skin tone thanks to Vitamin C. It does a good job removing foundation and color cosmetics and rinses clean away.

It works well as a cleanser should be but I find it to stripe the moisture out after use from my ever drier skin. Anyways, I’ll continue to use it till its empty.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Marine Boosting 4-in-1 Mist – This is the third product from this travel set. With my dry skin situation, I welcome and am a fan of a more dewy makeup look so I like this product.

According to Tarte’s website it says as follows: Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Marine Boosting Mist is a new four-in-one facial mist that acts as a primer, makeup setting spray, hydrating mist, and skin refresher. So far, I’ve tried only with the misting and I can say it feels¬†refreshing and the mist is an even mist, which I appreciate. From my experience, this is a good product for my combination skin. It keeps my makeup intact.

I’ll be working on trying it out as a primer the next coming days. I’ll report back on the development once I get more use of the product.

I really hope that you enjoy reading my latest post. So glad to find these products to be actually working on me. Shout out to the Youtubers that made me buy it.

Have you tried any of these products? What do you think? What has Youtube made you buy in the past? I’d love to know what products you guys would recommend that I try, so please leave me a comment down below and tell me what your favorites are!

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! I’ll see you on my next blog, bye!
