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® 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?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

AVEENO® 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® 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® 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’ll want to use all year round. This product is voted by Canadian Living Consumers to be the Best New Product of 2016.

NEUTROGENA® 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® 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.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

NEUTROGENA® NORWEGIAN FORMULA® 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!

May PR Unboxing

 

Hi guys! Today is a PR mail unboxing. I show everything I get in the mail. I open everything up and I actually unboxed everything for you guys. If you want to see any detailed reviews of these products, leave your comments below, you guys know I read all your comments.  So, let me know which you want me review first.

So, let’s get started with this PR unboxing.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
*PR Samples

I’ve this Weleda, they’re starting to sent out PR products which you guys know I like that. I got a few samples from them in my mail recently. I’m super excited about that. Shout out to M2 Brand and thank you Weleda!

I got the Age Revitalizing Day and Night Cream, Evening Primrose Revitalizing Body Wash, Calendula Intensive Skin Recovery and last but not least is this cute Mighty Essentials travel bag. All products mentioned here are available now at Weleda online website.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

There are six skincare products catered for different skin types and skincare concern. Here’s a closeup look of what’s available on their website.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

First thing first is the Calendula Intensive Skin Recovery cream. It says here on their website “highly concentrated, soothing care for minor skin irritations and sensitivities. It’s ideal for sun exposure and after shave.

I love to be productive whenever my health allows, so last weekend as I was clearing some cedar bushes in my garden, I noticed later that my hand was super itchy with red bumps. I suspect my skin must be allergic to the cedar plants. Couldn’t have gotten this on a much better time. I applied it on and it makes the irritation less itchy and and clam the redness. I’ll continue to use and report back of any new developments.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Next product I got is the Evening Primrose Age Revitalizing Day Cream. Note that the products are cruelty free (no animal testing) in case you’re wondering.

It says on the packaging –

  • Certified Natural
  • Organic, Wild crated ingredients
  • No parabens
  • No GMOs
  • No aritificial fragrances or preservatives

This is my first time trying out the day cream so yes I’m really excited about that. I really like the consistency, it feels amazing and very moisturizing. I tried it on my hand and I notice it gives my skin a nice glow-y look. One thing I want to put it out there is that you certainly could to smell the scents of the primrose oil. I love the aromatherapy scents that feels so relaxing. I don’t mind the heavy primrose smell because it fades away eventually and it didn’t linger on which is good news.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I went through a lot on night cream so I’m excited to try this one out tonight. I find the consistency of the night cream is a little thicker than their day cream. Both creams are not sticky or tacky whatsoever. These applies very well on skin.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here’s the consistency of the day cream that I want to show you guys. I really like the texture to be honest. It’s not runny or too thick to blend. So, I like it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I really appreciate samples that comes in full size especially when it comes to body wash. So, as I was doing the unboxing and saw this big tube of  Revitalizing Body Wash, I know I’m going to share it with my hubby. Yes, I’m excited for that  as well!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Last but not least, I also got in the box, a Mighty Essential Travel Bag which is so cute. It includes five essentials that’s a must have when you’re travelling or on a short vacation. I’ll be going for a few short trips this summer so this comes very handy.

Saturday Favorite Body Wash

 

Hey everyone! It’s a beautiful Saturday, isn’t it?

If you’ve been following my blog, chances are you’ve read my earlier review post talking about this drugstore brand. I’ll put a link here if you like to read further.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I love a good Canadian brand and Carina Canus is one in my long list of products to try. I was sent the Goat’s Milk Body Wash with Orchid Oil in my previous post but since I love it so much, I decided to repurchase it on my own. This time, I picked the Body Wash with Marigold Oil for review today. You guys know that I love doing reviews, and so here’s my two cents opinion if you care to know.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This body wash is bomb! I like these scents of both but Orchid Oil is my favorite, it’s a great spring scent, light and mild floral which I truly adore. I enjoy products that have lathers. And this Marigold Oil Body Wash, it lathers really easily, and had a lot of super bubbly lather. It has a mild marigold flower scents which I really like.

Fabulous natural body wash, nice clean scent, doesn’t make my skin feel tight or dry. Always have it in the bathrooms.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Overall, I couldn’t stress enough how I really love the Caprina Goat’s Milk products. They are all moisturizing and soft on the skin. My skin absolutely loves it. I can totally feel the difference how soft and smooth my skins are. I got compliment from my honey bear and well, let’s just say – this product is husband approved 🙂

I would highly recommend if you are into more natural products. This product rocks!

I’ll definitely be going back to grab their Body Lotion next since the weather is getting colder and dryer up North.

And have you ever tried goat’s milk body wash before? If yes, which one? Comment your experience down below. I love to hear what you think.

Available in six fragrant scents at any drugstores, Walmart, Amazon, ebay and Costco.

Thanks so much for stopping by and read. I’ll see you guys again on the next post!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hooked on Organic Body Wash

 

Hey everyone!

Over the years, I’ve become more aware of what I put on my skin and not to mention my body. As you might all been aware, the word ‘Organic’ has become a label that you see everywhere in the beauty world, and I started to see a shift in me where I notice that I’m more concerned about organic ingredients and well natural products.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Natural and organic products are only just starting to appear on ‘drugstore’ and supermarket shelves with a big bang. That’s why I’m so excited to share my two cents opinion on this awesome organic body wash by Neolia that I’ve been reaching out for the last two weeks. This is the best organic body wash I’ve tried so far and I’m hooked.

Too good to be true! Read on to find out!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The fresh scents is divine and the formula so nourishing. The fragrance smell (my favorite aspect of this line as a whole) lingers on the skin, which is nice. It comes with a pump applicator which I really like.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This product helps to cleanse and moisturize your skin. It contains 100% organic extra virgin Italian olive oil and aloe vera. They’re free of animal ingredients, not tested on animals and biodegradable. Oh, did I also mention that it’s paraben free!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And the best part of all? You can find them in any drugstore and even Costco!

All in all, I’m really impressed by this Neolia line as a whole, especially considering that they’re using organic ingredients.

What do you think of this product? Leave your comment below.

Thanks for stopping by.

Small Coconut Gift by The Body Shop

Hey friends! If I told you today that there is one single product that can solve many of health and beauty woes, would you have believed me? One product that you can cook, moisturize your hair, remove your makeup and hydrating your skin. Well, this little miracle did exist. It’s free of chemical and 100% natural. Yes, you got it. It’s COCONUT OIL!

I used it on my skin and even in the kitchen. I got this gift from my husband awhile ago but haven’t got the chance to try it. It’s a gift box from The Body Shop containing Coconut flavor body wash.

body shop haul

Let me introduce you to one of the natural product which is absolutely incredible for your skin, health and indulging your senses.

coconut body wash set

The Body Shop : Coconut Shower Cream/ Body Butter/ Exfoliant Corporal 

body butter coconut creamy butter

This body butter smells so good and smooth that makes me wonder whether to eat or apply it on my hands? (kidding!!!) It’s like a coconut pudding. Soft and smooth to touch. It claims to contain virgin organic coconut oil and it provides 24 hydration.

It comes in a Jumbo size selling for $18.00 on special promo.

exfoliant coconut exfoliant beads

Another marvelous usage of this coconut is the husk. The coconut shells were grounded with the husks to make great combination of exfoliate for the body. All I did was took some in my hand and massage it on my body and the best part is that the exfoliant doesn’t dissolve like other brands do. Since it was made from original husks and shells, you can be sure to have a good smooth and silky skin after rinsing it. I didn’t find any cons in this product and I’m glad that I tried it. It comes also in a mini travel size for $6.00 (for a net wt: 6.8 oz).

shower cream coconut cringles

Coconut Shower Cream with net wt 8.4 fl oz ml for $8.00 a bottle. It has a very nice coconut-y scents and is thicker than shower gel. Not as lather as I would have expected but overall is satisfied with this shower cream. This small coconut gift bag is available online and selling for $25.00. If you are running out of ideas on what to get for this holiday season. Why not try giving this as a gift? They will love you for it.

So, this is my take on my thought about these natural beauty products from Body Shop who stands for Fair Trade and no animal tested motto.

Hope you find this post helpful and interesting.

Thanks for reading.
