Clinique Boxing Day SEPHORA (pic heavy)


Don’t judge me okay! Yup,¬†you’ve to believe me when I told you that I’m still doing my Boxing Day unboxing purchases in February. I must do this one because it’s a brand that used to be closed to my heart when I was in my twenties.

So, a big SHOUT OUT to Clinique Cosmetics. MY dear old¬†friend LOL! I’m actually feeling nostalgia as I write! Sure brings back good memories.

The Clinique Loves Boxing Day set that comes with a ¬†Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara, Day Off Cleansing Balm and Extended Thirst Relief¬†might have found it’s way as my must have face routine. Happy because I found a cleansing balm¬†that works for me, and sad because I’m running out my other face product!

For only CAD$15 you get three nice products from Clinique to try, exclusive only at Sephora.

I’ve never had any colored mascara than the usual black. I was excited to get this Marsala color for my eye lashes. Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara comes in a regular size tube packaging.¬†My only complain is that the color is not as loud compared to what appeared on the brush. It isn’t showing much on my lashes and frankly, I couldn’t see the difference unless I us 20X mirror! Or maybe,¬†¬†I got a bad tube. I don’t know. So, bum!

I never knew I needed this until I tried it!

“Take The Day Off” Cleansing Balm by Clinique is my new love.¬†After having my whole arm full with color swatches, I decided to use this cleansing balm to the test. You just¬†gently apply the product¬†on your¬†arms or face and taa..daaa!!! In my case, all the swatches removed in front of my very eyes. Wow!

With this product, a little bit goes a long way. You get loads so you will literally never have to repurchase for a long while! I’m¬†always on the hunt for makeup remover that effortlessly dissolves even the most tenacious makeup and so glad to find it. I love my Estee Lauder Makeup Remover and this Clinique¬†is just icing on the cake. I got to admit,¬†I’m in love and will continue to use this product.

Individual bottle available at Sephora for C$36.00 in 125 ml or at retail stores, drugstores or Clinique online.

Next product in this box is the Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief Gel-Cream that valued for C$46.00 for 1.7 oz at Sephora.

First and foremost, it states on the website that this product is perfect for all skin types. Well, I’ve dry combination skin and I¬†was¬†all excited to test it out. I’ve been trying this moisturizer cream in the morning for the last two weeks and I would say this formula leaves my skin feeling moist and not greasy. Lastly, I didn’t notice any breakout which I sometimes experience when trying out skin care products.

It’s smells amazing and absorbs to skin before I count even count 1,2,3. The moisturizer has a somewhat herbal smell, but it doesn’t linger and nothing that’s insulting to the the nose.¬†It feels soothing and cooling on¬†my skin. I’m going to continue to use it interchangeably with my other skin care products next but this Thirst Relief gel-cream, I highly recommend.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and read. Hope to see you on the next one!

Drew Barrymore’s Flower Mini Chubby Lips

Hey friends!

Recently as I was shopping at Walmart. I happened to picked this Mini Lip Chubby set by Flower. I’ve heard about Drew Barrymore’s Flower makeup brand and I’m curious to know what the quality’s like. So, here are these three lip suede velvet lip chubbies which I really like. The color shades are great. It comes in as a gift set for $9.00 (net wt: 0.03 oz each). Valued for $14.94.

Here are the color swatches. In terms of pigmentation, it’s awesome and so blendable. Can layer up to the finishing look you desire. It’s moist and not shimmery at all. I really like the velvety finish. Oh geez! I think I’m hooked with this Drew Barrymore’s Flower lipstick. The price is so affordable and quality is insanely amazing.

These are self-sharpening mini chubby lipstick which is so convenient and easy to bring anywhere I go. Perfect to bring in a travel makeup bag for this coming holidays. Packaging is simple and lovely. It’s a twist bottom for formula lengthening.

The crayon style lip chubby¬†reminds me of the Clinique’s Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Color Balm except the different in price of course.

So, that’s my take on these mini chubby lip crayon sticks. I am satisfied and¬†will repurchase. Will I recommend them to a friend, you bet I will!

Don’t be Dirty! Skincare Biore & TonyMoly Face Cleanser

Okay, you’re not going to believe where I picked up this Biore Ultra Moisturising Face Wash? At one of the local Asian grocery store (C&T). Oh wow!!!! They even have TonyMoly face wash from¬†Korea which obviously I¬†must get (chuckle!!!).¬†This may sound crazy and yes, I actually bought these cleansers while¬†¬† grocery shopping. I came back and¬†check where it can be found, it seems that¬†some drugstores, C&C canada online¬†and Sephora have them.

In case you wanted to know if I used facial cleanser. Well, I still have my usual Aveeno Ultra Calming¬†Foaming Cleanser which I have been using for months. At the same time, I thought¬†of trying something new.¬† I’ve heard¬†of Kao Biore before but with TonyMoly, just recently through some beauty bloggers. TonyMoly is a popular brand in Korea and has makeup products too. Very cute and impressive packaging.¬†Their makeup products¬†are on a higher price.

Bioré Skin Care Facial Foam Rich Moisture (net wt: 130g)

Oh my gosh!!!! the sweet floral smells were so awesome. It’s so soothing and reminds me of¬†the soap or body lotion in the hotel¬†while I was in Japan like 1/2 decade ago. Flash back, I remembered¬†using Kao Biore skincare product when I was a teenager but then somehow I just stop using them. Can’t remember why but I guess later,¬†I started using other brands likes Clinique and Estee Lauder¬†as skincare products.

Since I stumbled on my memory lane, I wanted to try¬†it again today¬†and¬†to share my¬†thoughts on what I think of this Facial Foam by Biore. Oh yes, for those of you whose is not so familiar, it is a Japanese brand started¬† since 1887. To know more I’ll link down below.

On the website it says :- Bior√© Skin Care Facial Foam Rich Moisture for dry skin.¬†The smooth and lubricating foam easy to apply to the skin¬† and¬†completely washes off the dirt and¬†leaving the skin moisturized and soft. Verification of the effects with a touch by fingertips and palm.¬†Adopted SPT (skin cleaning technology)” on.¬†Can clean off the dirt to protect the moisture of the skin.

Impressed with their claims, I¬† have to tried it,¬† so I did.¬†The first thing that I noticed was the sweet floral scents. It’s smells so good. With this foam all I need is just¬†one tiny squeeze and is sufficient to wash the whole face.¬†I noticed¬†after rinsing, it instantly trapped the moisture and gives¬† just the exact cleanliness feeling, you know what I mean, right? For me, I just feel that it’s super clean to the point that it makes my skin feels dry-ish.

Frankly speaking, my face definitely does looked cleaner and lighter but not brighter.¬†My thoughts is that it is a good product and has been in the market globally for century.¬†I might start¬†using it once my Aveeno’s foaming cleanser¬†runs out.

TonyMoly Cream Dew Aloe Foam Cleanser ~ Moist & Soothe (net wt: 6.33 fl oz)

Most of us know that aloe vera has quite an incredible medicinal plant which is full of nutritional benefits. These are a bit of info about aloe vera. Thought it might be helpful.

Because of aloe’s well-known healing properties for the skin, aloe is one of the primary compounds used in the cosmetic industry. It is a known to healing wounds and is great for applying topically to burns, abrasions, psoriasis and even to bug bites. Aloe is an emollient, helping to soften and soothe the skin. It helps supply oxygen to the skin cells, increasing the strength and synthesis of skin tissue and induces improved blood flow to the skin through capillary dilation.

I¬†tried everything before giving my review. So, this morning I woke up and tried this wonderful aloe dewy foam cleanser. Wow…. it’s amazing! I like the smell of the aloe vera and with a small amount of the foam/cream it really cleaned my face very well. My face feels shinny because it’s so clean but not a dull clean. It’s value for money since a small amount goes a long way. I paid $5.99 for this tube. I also like the simple packaging. There were five different type of skincare cleanser. I chose moist and soothe in aloe. Different ingredients used¬†for different types of skincare.
