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…

AVEENO¬ģ 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?

AVEENO¬ģ 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¬ģ 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.

I know that my¬†mom prefers a lightweight formula¬†when it comes to body care and this¬†AVEENO¬ģ 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‚Äôll want to use all year round. This product is voted by Canadian Living Consumers to be the Best New Product of 2016.¬†

NEUTROGENA¬ģ 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.

NEUTROGENA¬ģ 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.

NEUTROGENA¬ģ NORWEGIAN FORMULA¬ģ 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!

The Body Shop ~Beauty Haul!

It’s Friday!!!

Happy Friday friends. Guess what I am going to share with you today after my last Friday’s haul on¬†NYX makeup.¬†I’m always happy to do my haul¬†and¬†you are all an encouragement to me. Thank you.

When the Body shop have one of their sale of Buy 3, Get 2 Free, it takes quite a lot of willpower to resist it. To be honest, I’m quite a big fan¬†of Body Shop¬†on bath & body,¬†skin care and makeup products. So, with sales like that, it’s going to take a tranquilizer to put me down (ha!ha!ha!).

So, here¬†are some of the haul¬†which I spent about $70.00 in the store. I got them several¬†weeks ago.¬†It’s just sitting there and waiting for my review. It’s strange¬†how I didn’t do my haul on these earlier. I’m always excited to share newer hauls and so once I forgot then it will be sitting there until today. But don’t worry, the sales are still on their website.

The Body SHop Beauty Haul

The sales includes all bath & body, skin care, makeup, hair etc…¬† I will definitely be reviewing the majority of the items I’ve bought in due course, after I have been able to thorougly try them out.

Color Crush Shine Lipsticks in 201 and 130

I love lipsticks and I told myself that I’m just going to get one but ended up getting three in total. I paid $12.75 for each.

The Body Shop website says that it’s an¬†irresistible lipstick that gives a sheer wash of colour with a sorbet-fresh shine. Each moisture-rich lipstick is infused with a delicate rose fragrance. I can’t agree more. I always prefer to go for matte and creamy finish but since it’s sooo irresistable I got them in sheer finish. What am I thinking? Hmmm….¬†probably impulse buying! But the colors are nice. Perfect to wear them for doing shopping errands.

The¬†trouble I have with body shop’s lipstick is that there is no¬†color name¬†description on their packaging or even on their website.¬†They only use color code¬†on its packaging label. I find it hard to distinguish which red and the other darker without having a color name to link. But I guess that’s just me. Overall, body shop’s products are¬† really amazing and I have been using their bath & body products for decades. I have confident in their products and that’s¬†part of¬†the reason why I branched out to their makeup section to try them out.

Body Shop Vit e moisturizermoisture cream body shop

Vitamin E Moisture Cream for All Skin Types on Daily protection and moisturization (1.7 oz)  $18.00

I need moisturizer for my dry skin and I picked this up for cloudy or rainy day’s wear. It doesn’t have SPF but¬†I¬†plan to wear it¬†when the sun is hiding behind the clouds.¬†It says¬†to provide daily moisturize and hydrate skins leaving it¬†feeling smooth and soft. I tried it in the store and I can feel the cold, soothing and soft cream on my skin. It has a lovely smell too. Can’t resist¬†so this goes in my shopping basket.

Camomile Sumptous Cleansing Butter (net wt: 2.7 oz)

This is the product that caught my eyes. I have my usual Estee Lauder eyemakeup remover but this one looks unique.¬†I like the tin can packaging. It’s a simple design but¬†light in weight. It does have a gentle soothing smell which I really¬†like. The salesperson tried it on my hand and it feels buttery and it does removed the lipstick swatches I made earlier while at the store. I have’nt¬†had any butter type of makeup remover before and this one¬† impresses me.

Tea tree flawless bb cream

Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream in 03 Dark color shade (net wt: 1.3 fl oz)

Well,¬† I mentioned earlier that I bought these items¬†several weeks ago¬†when I still got my tan. So, the dark shade in 03 fit my skin tone but now as the weather gets colder I need a lighter shade of¬†Medium. There isn’t much of color shades selection to choose from. It’s either Light, Medium or Dark. I might just get another medium for autumn till winter.

Tea tree always comes up with incredibly wonderful tea scents on body wash, lotions, tea tree oil to name a few which for me is quite rejunevating and therapeutical.

Since the promotion is still on and the weather is getting colder, I don’t mind getting¬†a lighter color of Tea Tree BB cream now.

Products are never tested on animals, and all their products are 100% vegetarian.

So, there you have it. That’s all that I bought from the Body Shop¬†on this week’s beauty haul.

If you bought anything from the 3 for 2 promotion, I’d love to know what you bought?

As always. thank you for reading.
