Spring Scenery Beauty Products

 

Hey guys! It’s February and it could only mean two things. Romance and spring is coming! Yup, I could totally feel the change in the¬†air this morning. Since Valentine’s Day is only a stone throw away I’ll showing¬†you guys some of the product samples I got recently from a (*)PR company for an exchange of my honest opinion.

When it comes to Valentine’s Day, I like to keep things simple¬†but memorable as well. So, there’s nothing worst than being unprepared for that special night. Am I right!¬†If you’re overwhelmed by tons of products and how to, don’t fret! I got you covered with these beauty products that will have you feeling confident and ready for love.

Let’s take a peek what’s inside this PR box:

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, give your skin the ultimate date night prep with ACURE¬†Moroccan Argan Oil in Rose. It smells amazing! Makes me¬†feel like a rose! Aaah!!! You should really try this. It doesn’t feel greasy¬†at all once it¬†absorbs to skin. I used it to massage¬†my body¬†and it¬†makes me feel so relaxing and smells awesome. I did¬†tried it as a face serum too since cold weather makes my combination skin incredibly dry. I applied a small amount¬†on my dry patches and 5 days later I could see sign of improvement on my dry patches.

I got Acure Quick Fix Correcting Balm that contains argan oil and starflower. I really like¬†the scent of this balm. It smells amazing! This argan oil comes in a tube packaging which ¬†Initially I thought it was a lip balm corrector but it wasn’t. This borage and argan oil could be used¬†to soothe calm fine lines¬†and¬†wrinkles plus chapped hands, feet, stretch marks and cuticles. I’m very excited to this a little longer before I share my thoughts and opinions on it.

Super cute packaging! Ohh, isn’t it so lovely? This¬†Honey Lip Balm is by The Green Beaver Company. This is my first experience with this brand and I’m falling head over heels¬†on¬†it.

I can’t really explain the scents of this lip balm but if I’ve to put the scents, I would guess it as a natural and raw beeswax smell. As¬†I applied it on my lips, I could feel this creamy moisturizing formula enveloping on my lips. It feels so gentle and balmy. I didn’t notice any heavy or tacky feels on my lips which I really appreciate.

This product is made with 100% natural essential oils. Behold this Lafe’s Natural Deodorant Twist Stick Bliss in Iris and Rose. Retails for $6.99 on their website. Available in four other amazing scents.

I’m not a huge fan of deodorant but this just changed everything. I’m now hooked! Awesome products that lasted all day. It has a strong fragrant scents that lingers on. If you like floral scents then this one is made for you.

Note that this product is free of aluminium and propylene glycol in case you like to know.

Weleda is a multinational company that produces both beauty products and naturopathic medicines with it’s headquarter in Switzerland.

I got this bottle of Jardin De Vie Grenade (Pomegranate inspired) by Weleda¬†together the my¬†PR box. It comes in a 1.7 fl oz color gradient glass bottle packaging. It’s minimalistic though pretty. It says here on the box that this was inspired by the exotic fragrance of Persian gardens. The ingredients are alcohol and perfume from essential oils.

‚ÄúGrenade‚ÄĚ is exactly like this: Sweet and fruity. Honestly, it could be a hit or miss for me. I don’t love or hate this fragrance. I don’t have anything negative to say about it except that I¬†personally will not reach for. The scent is too strange for my liking. I want to like it but it’s not happening. But I know some of you who likes pomegranate, orange and vanilla would definitely¬†enjoy this fragrance.

I was sent two products from Weleda and the next product I got is their Nail Care Pen. The packaging is simple and sleek. One side has a soft brush where you turn the bottom of the pen for products before applying on nails and cuticles.

I haven’t tried this product yet but I’m all excited to give it a try. It’s that time of the year for my nails to take a break from nail polish after the holidays.¬†My nails could¬†need some tender, loving and care.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is a random product which I wouldn’t expect to receive from the company. As you can see from the image,¬†this toothbrush is not just any toothbrush. It’s a Travel Toothbrush by Radius Tour. If you’ve been following my blog you’ll know that I’m a sucker for cute things. So, when I saw this unfold, snap and brush travel toothbrush, I was floored. The fact that this is a cruelty free product and you can easily¬†find it on their website or at Amazon, Well and Walmart.

I like the soft brittle brush and concept of a replaceable design very much. I like that it’s eco-friendly too. If you’re an environmentalist who is in the market for a cruelty free and travel friendly toothbrush, I say give this brand a chance.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Last but not least, I also received these travel samples for body and hair by Acure. I’ll report back once I’ve tried them in the blog.¬†And in the meantime, if you’re curious to know more, check out their website link¬†for more details.

What do you think of these products? Comment below which product appeals to you the most.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog. I hope to see you all again on my next post. Stay tuned for more popped up makeup products which I’m so excited to show you guys.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

It feels a little heavy though¬†and a little sticky but love the¬†hydration part.

It says here on the website that “This skintuitive‚ĄĘ formula responds to your skin‚Äôs natural pH and energy, giving you a personalized tint that is truly your own unique shade”. So yay for that!

My June Glam Bag from Ipsy arrived Friday afternoon and I immediately jumped into action by quickly opening up the pink fuschia envelope and inside I found this lovely black purse with Ipsy letters imprinted on the top plastic material while the back is of polyester material.

Okay, let’s dig in and voila here are some of the sample products I got for this month. I can see myself wearing and using all the products in this glam bag. There are¬†some¬†beauty brands that I’ve never tried or heard before. I can’t wait to share what I got with you. Continue reading below to find out more …

I got a Shea Moisture Butter Lipstick, Dr Brandt Blackhead Extractor Mask, Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer, Tre’StiQue Mini Shadow Crayon and 3 BioRepublic Face Mask (photo down below).

Below I’ll show each product and description as I unbagged:-

DSC03629

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer with net wt: 0.25 fl oz in a travel size. Retail for $36.00 for net wt: 1 fl oz on the website. Oh my gosh! I think I’ve found my holy grail primer! The texture is so wonderfully smooth and it just absorbs right into my skin leaving skin feeling¬†super glorious. It has a very subtle scents which wouldn’t affect my decision in picking up a regular size Smashbox at Sephora.

I’m in love with this amazing foundation primer. It create a¬†perfect canvas for foundation application with this silky, lightweight blend of vitamins A & E, grape seed extract and green tea. This primer is also oil free!

I seriously need to try out this Dr Brandt’s Vacuum Cleaner Blackhead Extractor Mask¬†to get rid of my¬†blackheads around my nose area. This could be a life saver to avoid excruciating pain using the old school method. It says here that this gentle exfoliating mask helps loosen and extract blackheads without painful extraction tools while absorbing oil and tightening pores. Use Ipsy code VACUUM25¬†and get 25% off your purchase. Regular size¬†online sells for¬†$45.00 a tube. I think it’s pricey but check back¬†later where I’ll share the results after using this mask.

I haven’t heard of this brand Tre’StiQue and curious to find out what this Shadow Crayon performance in terms of quality and result. I got the shade in Venetian Gold and I love the soft pigmentation when I did a swatch. I’ll share with you the color swatch and makeup look in my next post. It has six other pretty shades in this line with each selling for $26.00.

It says on the website that this amazing 12 hour eye shadow has customizable color that you can build from a subtle wash to intense vibrancy. It’s also super blendable with a crease free, smooth finish. Use Ipsy code to get 15% off your purchase using this code IPSYINSIDER15.

DSC03632

I always love a full size sample and I’m happy to get this Shea Moisture Butter Lip Crayon in my bag. The shade I got from my Ipsy bag is in Sarah (pink with a satin finish). I seldom have this color in my lip color collection. Oh well, I might as well wear it now! It’s super smooth and it glides so beautiful on my lips. My lips feels moist and the shade stays for a good 3 hours.

This brilliant multi-tasker acts like a liner and lipstick in one. I believe you can get this at Target. One thing you want to know is that this lip crayon is paraben and cruelty free.

DSC03638

I received three sheet masks in Aloe Rescue Revitalizing Fiber Mask, Cucumber Breeze Soothing Fiber Mask, and Green Tea Detox Purifying Fiber Mask by BioRepublic. Each net wt: 1.89 oz. You also get in each¬†mask a packed full aloe, green tea and cucumber extracts with Vitamin E and they’re¬†suited for all skin types. You get a special if you order through ipsy promo code¬†IPSYBIOREPUBLIC where you get 8 masks for $30.00 instead of $42.00 + free shipping.

What‚Äôs more, BioRepublic SkinCare claims that its products are 100% cruelty free and so your conscience will feel as relieved as your complexion. I’m really excited to try these masks since lately I’ve been extra stressed so¬†I’m planning to try¬†the Cucumber Breeze tonight ūüôā
