Today I wanted to share this free Clarins Paris skincare product I received from Pharmaprix for my consideration.I was excited to try this product out because you all know that I love me a good skincare, so I was super excited to give this one a try!

Let’s get started.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

*Clarin Paris Extra-Firming Day Wrinkle lifting cream for all skin type¬†with a net wt: 0.5 oz in this tube. Regular size is for CAD$87.00 a jar.First of all, let me say that I’m a huge¬†fan of Clarins skincare products to begin with. I did a few skincare reviews by Clarins Paris in several postings in the past.

The formula is creamy, smells fresh and clean. It’s light and apply easily.

In my opinion, I find this¬†product not so suitable as a day cream because it doesn‚Äôt contain sunscreen/SPF. But since I apply my moisturizer with SPF before applying this cream then, it’s not that bad. Or you could apply also use it when you know that you’re planning to stay indoors.

On the back of the packaging, the instruction¬†says, “A powerful wrinkle lifting formula. Apply every morning to face and neck”.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Conclusion, I really like this cream. It doesn’t cause me any break outs and it’s gentle to my skin. Probably a little too early to say that it helps lift wrinkles but it definitely make my skin feeling hydrated, soft and smooth. I love how it¬†feels and moisturizes my skin.

An excellent product that makes your skin feeling so fresh and awesome. Definitely a keeper!

Alrighty, so that‚Äôs pretty much it for today‚Äôs post! I’ll¬†see you ¬†again on the next one. Bye!

As always, I appreciate you guys for stopping by to read. Thanks so much!

Sharon xoxo

Kick or Keep: Skin Care Samples Review

 

I love the Holidays! It’s the best time of the year to try out new beauty products. I was given the Biotherm skin care sample products from Galerie Beauty, Pharmaprix  (Shoppers Drug Mart) for consideration. I was on the moon and back, when I was given the opportunity to do this on a regular basis. I want to thank Sylvie for this wonderful project.

I’m excited and want to jump right in.

Here’s what I’m so obsessed with at the moment.

Take a peek!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Blue Therapy Serum Visible Signs of Aging Repair (CAD$69.00 regular size  30 ml bottle) on Biotherm website. Paraben Free!

It is actually the star of this set for me. It’s something I would never purchase for myself and it comes as a surprise I even liked it. This was created for combination skin types and it is a pretty basic yet fabulous moisturizer. I’m always look for moisturizers that are super rich and hydrating that’s why I’ve passed on this time and time again.

It really works on dark spots and It smells so good. I’ve been trying this for more than a¬†week and the spots looks less visible. I’m satisfied with the result thus far. As for wrinkles, I’ll continue to use this serum and update back once I’ve concluded the final result.

I really like the way my skin feel when I use this product. The price is more than I can continue to pay unless there are deals offered. I have only been using this product for more than a week and can already tell a difference in my skin. I do love your products Biotherm.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Biomains Hand Cream Age Delaying Hand & Nail Treatment (CAD$31.00 regular size 100 ml).

I hate the feeling of greasy hands and I believe some of you may agree with me. But then I tried Biomains. This sample product is amazing. It takes only a small portion to moisturize your hands and it dries in seconds without ANY greasy residue. It says on the packaging that it’s nail treatment too, so I can’t wait to see better result from this bad boy.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It has a very subtle and pleasant smell that I really really love. I’d recommend this product and would get a full size tube once I’m low on the¬†free sample.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Biosource Daily Exfoliating Cleansing Melting Gel (CAD$21.00 for 150 ml tube) at Pharmaprix Pincourt or drugstores.

It contains micro beads for exfoliating your skin. I’ve been using it 3¬†times a week and I can see the difference. I got compliment from my friends and told them it’s thanks to¬†BioSource Exfoliating gel. I can “Kiss goodbye to the stubborn death skin”.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This face wash exfoliate is great, I loved it, feels great, smells so wonderful and cleans really well. I can see my face brighter and refresh. I’ll definitely be purchasing a full size of it soon!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Lait Corporel Anti-Drying Body Milk (CAD$29.00 a bottle net wt: 400ml) has an amazing citrus scents which feels so refreshing on skin. I pulled out this sample sachet two days back and applied it at night to test my reaction to this cream. And Oh boy! The citrus-y scents and milk like cream feels so good on skin.

It is a great product but expensive for a daily moisturizer or wait for a sale. If you’ve been loving this moisturizer for a long time, I can understand you’d go back in the fold.

I’m satisfied with the result and I’m repeating it again. Very gentle, pleasant smell. Excellent moisturizing. There you have it, guys!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Biotherm Replumping and Smoothing Lip Balm (CAD$22.00) is perfect for dry winter days which I’ve been experiencing lately. One thing I find about Biotherm lip balm, is it helps chapped lips to become smooth and plump with its high nutrient. It keeps my lips moisturized and the best part is that it’s colorless. I’m loving¬†the staying power and the light scents. Doesn’t feel tacky or sticky on lips. My lips feels very comfortable wearing them. I’ll say it’s a little spend-y but worth your¬†money.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

OK, I’ve used it for a week, but so far I’m in LOVE with this lip balm.¬†Obviously there is more testing to be done, but so far so good!

My final verdict: All the products which I’ve tried are a keeper. At this moment I honestly doesn’t have any bad things to say about them. These are amazing skin care products which are paraben free and products that actually work. It’s worth the investment in your skin care routine. I recommend this and would purchase them in regular size. I love the delicious smell of freshness.

Don’t just take my word for it, try it and be sure to let me know what you think in the comment section. I love to hear your comments.

Thank you for taking the time to read. You guys are AWESOME!

My RADAR! Nouveautes – Beauty

 

I promised you I’ll return with more exciting and close-up images. Well, I’m keeping my word and I’m bringing you the color story of drugstore beauty.

The New¬†Spring 2016 Collection has arrived at Pharmaprix¬†and I‚Äôm having some inner turmoil about whether I need all these or not since my goal this year is to use up most of my makeup. I was quite intrigued and tempted to try the Dream Velvet Foundation by Maybelline and L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Gloss for instance.

I love Maybelline Instant-Age Rewind/Eraser and I always have good luck with this brand when I’m on a budget buy. This foundation comes in a gel cream formula and the texture is freaking soft, I tell you.¬†You can see from this picture, I squeeze a little of the product and look at how much it go. So, a little goes a long way. I love that the Tester tube is perfect for¬†my skin-tone.

At shower,  I noticed that water will bead, very much like wearing a waterproof jacket (if this make any sense). I could confidently say that you could wear it in the pool or beach and girl, this puppy is waterproof.

A liquid form gloss which is pro-matte by L’Oreal. Well, that’s new to me at least! Available in ten neutral to pink tone colors to welcome¬†Spring. The applicator is unlike the doe foot I’m more used to. I find the tip to be a little¬†flimsy to control when I did a swatch on my wrist. My first impression is the sponge was a bit soft but it picks up the product very well. I still have the color stain on after shower twice¬†since yesterday.

I love matte or¬†creamy opaque lip color and this new Pro-matte might just be right up my alley after all. It reminds me of City Color Lip Stain that I got from my Ipsy Bag, it looks like¬†the latter is a little runny formula for L’Oreal.

This one is in my radar definitely.

I saw my favorite Youtuber Emily talked about the¬†New Revlon 2 in 1 Compact Makeup and Concealer recently and when I spotted this at the drugstore, I’m intrigued to try it.

Available in twelve different shades and I noticed it has more deeper toned formula in this collection.

I couldn’t access to the tester for this product and I can’t give my opinion but check out this link if you want to know more.

Youtuber Emilynoel

Last but not least is this L’Oreal Color Riche Eyeshadow Gel to Powder for $6.99 in fifteen shades. The color swatch in the picture is Petite Perle. Texture feels creamy and pigmented on first swipe.

I’m dying of happiness right now! All these NEW collections are¬†amazing. The packaging and the dark bold eyeshadow colors are so smoky hot.

But anyways, I’ll sit and ponder this a while longer if I need to pick all. Let me know what you think? Which would you like me do a review on in the comment section. I love trying out products to review.

In the mean time, let me know if you’re going to indulge in any of the above products.

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

Sugar & Vices by Wet n Wild

 

In case you didn’t know or¬†(some of you probably know already but I thought I would share it), fall was THE time for beauty companies to bring out their most important‚ÄĒand most gorgeous!‚ÄĒproduct launches of the year for the Holidays,

I’m a¬†big¬†fan Wet n Wild eyeshadows palettes, especially after my first love with¬†their Coloricon 8-pan eyeshadow palette. Love, love them ‚̧

When I saw Wet n Wild¬†at my¬†local¬†Shoppers Drug Mart (SDM) for the first time, I was over the moon. I was gravitated by the Glittery colors and I couldn’t help but needing to put my finger to try these singles.¬†Needless to say, I went home with the Single Shadow in 250B¬†Sugar (White) and Glitter Single in 356B Vices (Red) for $1.99 each a few weeks ago.

Talk about exciting!

The¬†Red Glitter Vices is¬†ideal for¬†fall and holiday season, especially on the face and body for a¬†glam look. This formula is wet and if you like face glitter gel type for added shimmer or young teens. Some of you might like this face or body glitter but unfortunately, this product is a miss for me. I find them hard to remove once they’re on my face. So, this is a disappointment for me.

Next is the Sugar Shadow which has smooth texture with¬†nicely pigmented. This shadow is of matte finish and I really like this on the brow bone highlight and inner corner.¬†They’re incredibly easy to swipe on and blend out as much or as little as you like, and will not crease on lids, smear or fade throughout the day‚ÄĒhooray!

Now is the time to invest in some¬†matte, satin shadows for the holiday seasons. But I’ll skip the face glitters for sure.

Have you checked out any of the Wet n Wild makeup holiday collections yet?

Recently, I got this great¬†opportunity to try out¬†five products from Lancome at Shoppers Drug Mart¬†(aka Pharmaprix PIncourt) for consideration. You guys know that I’m a huge fan of Lancome and my love for¬†my Lancome Bienfait Day Cream and their eyeshadows. So, here is the chance for you to try out some of Lancome products as little as $36.00 and you get 7 pieces items¬†shown in the pamphlet for free including the makeup bag.

Right off the bat, I just wanted to put it out there that I loved Lancome skin care products and their¬†elegant packaging. I’ve tried several of Lancome beauty and skin care products and so far none had let me down. You know that I love trying out new makeup products from high end to drugstores but when it comes to skin care, I always reach for brands which I’m confident and trust.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This sample products would be yours if you spent $36.00 on any purchase of Lancome products.¬†I’ve been wearing these skin care every night and I’m pleased to report that I’m impressed.

sharon beauty prime

Here is¬†what you’d get with your purchase of any Lancome product. It’s legit.

Rénergie Lift Multi-Action Lifting and Firming Cream

First up is the Renergie Lift Multi-Action Cream by Lancome. Oh, I love this cream! Where to start? I got this sample in a net wt: 15 ml jar packaging. It comes in a lovely purple transparent¬†¬†jar¬†with a silver cap. It smells super amazing. Regular jar comes in 50ml for $120.00 CAD but since Shoppers Drug Mart has the “Your free Gift” special, if you spend¬†$36.00 CAD of¬†any Lancome products, you get a free gift bag which includes 7 pieces samples (valued for $138.00 CAD).

BENEFITS:

‚ÄĘ Cheekbones appear lifted
‚ÄĘ Forehead is smoothed
‚ÄĘ Jawline and neck look redefined.

Génifique Repair Night Cream

The regular size jar comes in 50 ml for $115.00 CAD online or at Shoppers Drug Mart.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I love love the scents of this night cream. It’s soothing and light. The formula absorbs right into skin leaving skin feeling amazing. Definitely a winner in my book.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

BENEFITS :

Targets the visible signs of fatigue to help RESTORE¬†skin’s luminosity and youthful complexion while you sleep:

‚ÄĘ Your skin will be intensely moisturised, smooth and appear more radiant
‚ÄĘ Visible signs of aging and wrinkles will appear reduced by morning

*Press Sample Packaging

BENEFITS:

‚ÄĘ Fuller, longer, thicker lashes
‚ÄĘ Intensely rich coverage
‚ÄĘ Curl-enhancing, volumizing, dramatic eye makeup

There is only one thing I want to say about this mascara. Love, love this! It has beautiful texture & does not clump. Very easy to apply and it leaves my lashes looking more volume since my lashes are small and this is the perfect mascara for me! One more thing to mention is that the formula smells amazing. It maybe a little pricey but you only get what you pay for! I highly recommend this!

Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector sample size

Regular size bottle of Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector comes in 1 fl oz and it costs $135.00¬†a bottle. Lancome claims that this is a¬†skin-correcting serum used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and pores and improve skin‚Äôs texture. As I’m my¬†age climb one year at a time, it’s just a matter of time¬†where wrinkles might¬†simply pay me a visit and stay for good, lol. This serum is able to help correct my pores and skin texture for now. Recently I checked again, I was told that I have combination skin that’s leaning more¬†to the drier side.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I love how soft this makes my skin feel. The smell is incredibly pleasant. Well, it isn’t cheap but I haven’t found anything that makes my skin feel as nice. It’s pricey but worth the sacrifice!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m convinced that this product will be a long-term product of mine to use! It really works and I’m so glad to have tried this product.

La Vie Est Belle

Amazing¬†scents. Very light and it lingers on for a long duration of time. Beautiful scents of magnolia with hint of floral petals. Uhmmm…. delicious!!! Feeling uplifted freshness and this is definitely going straight to¬†my Wishlist. You’ll get a sample¬†L’eau de Toilette if you spend $36.00 on any Lancome products. Free gift bag¬†of 7 pcs including a sample bottle of¬†La Vie Est Belle. ¬†Regular size 1.7 fl oz for $82.00 online only.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I will continue to use these wonderful products from Lancome and a big thanks to¬†Pharmaprix Pincourt’s Manager Sylvie¬†for this opportunity to review this awesome brand.
