Best of the Best to Absolutely Ageless Skin by Aveeno

 

Hi guys! In today’s blog post I’m going to show you a tip and trick that I absolutely love. So if you read my post or follow my blog you know that I love skin care products especially my obsession to try out new products for you guys.

So today’s post is all about some new drugstore skin care products that’s fairly new to me. If you’re in the market to finding skin care products that helps no matter your age, it’s never too early or too late using anti-aging skin care products – then continue reading.

Luckily, I’ve tried loads of anti-aging skin care products and have separated the winner from the losers. Here’s the best of the best when it comes to turning back clock.

Aveeno anti aging products
#Press Samples

A huge thanks to the PR company that sent me this packaging recently. They sent me four skincare products by Aveeno and the first thing that I’ve with me here is the Absolutely Ageless Eye Cream,  Moisturizing Cleanser, Intensive Renewal Serum and last but not least is the Restorative Night Cream. Thank you so much!

I’m so excited to try these out.

aveeno cleanser

The first product I wanted to talk about is the Moisturizing Cleanser that they claims to removes 99% of skin-aging impurities.

As you can see, this product comes in a nice bottle with a pump applicator. I like that the packaging is travel friendly since it has a lock mechanism. The product is gel-like but a little too runny in my opinion. It smells wonderful and it leaves a soft feel on my skin after rinsing. The scent is totally mesmerizing!

I’ve added this to my daily skin care routine and have been very pleased with the results. This product doesn’t dry out the face and it’s very gentle for all skin types.

#aveeno renewal serum

New

This is definitely the biggest thrills of the lot. I’ve always been looking for a serum that actually works on my skin and I’m so glad it did. I applied as directed and it quickly absorbs into skin. I really appreciate that the formula feels lightweight and it’s 100% non-greasy. It has a nice scents that’s not overly powering.

“This serum is formulated with Aveeno’s Active Naturals Blackberry Complex which is full of antioxidants, vitamins and other anti-aging ingredients.” As many of you might’ve already know, I’ve combination to dry skin – this helps strengthen the natural moisture barrier is something which my dry skin department truly need help in.

I’ve been using this serum for the past two weeks and my skin is loving it so far. Whether you’re in your early twenties or late forties, I recommend giving this serum a try. This one does fit the bill.

aveeno eye cream

New

“This product gave result that other people noticed.” My fine lines reduced considerably after a week of test run. It’s one of the best anti-aging products out there if you asked me

It comes in an opaque squeeze tube packaging. What I really like about this eye cream is that it’s fragrance-free and lightweight with a silky texture to it. Works so well under makeup and the brightening effect can visibly improve the appearance of dark circles.

aveeno night cream

New

It says AVEENO® Absolutely Ageless™ Restorative Night Cream is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Their Natural Active ingredients of Blackberry Complex helps nourish skin by reducing the visible effect of elastin and collagen loss.

I love products that smell nice and this definitely is one of them. With my combination to dry skin, I appreciate how the formula absorbed into my skin. I’m impressed by how well this night cream hydrates. It soaks right in while leaving my skin feeling really soft and smooth. This is a keeper!

I truly enjoy using all the products from Aveeno. It’s a drugstore brand that I trust when it comes to quality and affordability.

Which one is your pick from your drugstore? Comment what’s your favorite go to skin care products?

So, thanks for stopping and read. I also like to thank Aveeno for this great opportunity to collaboration.  And until next time, I’m wishing a Great Skin Health! Bye!!!

June Favorites – Makeup

 

Hey everyone! Welcome to my June Favorite’s blog, my favorite of the month. Everything in this post has really earned its spot. It’s practical, it does its purpose and it does something that you could put your finger on. So that’s what I’m going to talk about today. It’s all makeup related and I’ll start with this.

ABH Master Palette

One thing is the Anastasia Bevery Hills Master Palette by Mario. Don’t you think this eyeshadow palette looks glamorous by the way? You may remembered my post where I did a full review on it.

Master Palette by Mario

There are twelve beautiful shadows in this palette and I do like each one of them. They’re so pigmented and blend incredibly well. I enjoy this palette because these shadows are so versatile and they can do so much. Can we take a minute to just look at how gorgeous these neutral shades are! If you’re looking for something that’s high-end with a bang for your money, then I recommend you get this.

Double Play - Bronzer

Moving on is the Double Play Pressed Powder Face Duo by Colourpop. I adore both shades from this palette very much. It’s the perfect color for everyday wear. A great cheek combination that I’ll never get tired of.

Double Play color swatch

The deets:

  • Pressed Powder Blush in Getting Handsy is a warm nude with matte finish.
  • Pressed Powder Highlighter in the shade Padded Down is a pearlized highlighter with warm champagne feel.

Color swatch

The highlighter is gorgeous and glowy, but in a natural way. I’ve been wearing this palette nonstop since I got it.  Love the pigmentation and the beautiful shade. It’s so pretty and is definitely one of my favorite highlighters! I’ve been wearing it non-stop since got it. Definitely got to check this out!

Colourpop ultra lip stain

The next favorite of mine is this Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in the shade London Fog. I’ve been wearing it from Spring till now and I’m loving the beautiful color it makes my lips look. It feels lightweight and not drying at all on my lips.

Coloupop Ultra Lip Stain color

Check out on my instagram to see how it happens with just one swipe. Super opaque and I really feel comfortable wearing it. Super flattering!

Olay Bb Cream

I’ve been wearing so much of my all time favorite Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream Skin Perfecting Tinted Moisturizer this month. A little goes a long long way with this BB cream and it’s the best drugstore BB cream I’ve ever tested and it’s my favorite.

Olay BB cream swatch

I really like the soft tube packaging. You can squeeze the daylight out of the products whenever it hits pan. I love the scent, which is fresh but does not linger.

I’m loving the color tint and the formula is so moisturizing. So easy to blend and it glide on like a dream. I like to use my ELF blending sponge for a flawless makeup face. I use it for what it is: a tinted moisturizer, not a foundation. If you’re looking for more coverage, than this is not for you. A great product for those wanting very very minimal coverage. Best for a natural looking skin!

I’m not sure if this product is being discontinued but if you happened to see this at your local drugstore or Walmart, you got to give it a try.

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel

I really like the brush, the shade, the packaging and the longevity of wear. Everything is good happening with this Miracle Gel nail polish right here! You can find this at any of your local drugstore, Walmart, CVS, Target and etc…

Birthday Suit - Sally Hansen

I’ve been binge watching the Kardashians and as such I’ve had a huge craving for white nails – those ladies sure know how to rock a light nail – and as such I have been constantly wearing Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Polish in Birthday Suit. This isn’t a true white, rather it is slightly grey in tone – a stone shade almost. Meaning that it doesn’t fully wash me out and yet looks, simple, classic and dare I say super chic. I adore this shade so much!

I’m keen to find out which products are your faves and which products you just can’t get enough of! Let me know in the comments down below.

Thank you so much for stopping by and read. I’ll talk to you guys again on the next one.

Sharon xoxo

Summer Skincare Must-Haves|AVEENO & NEUTROGENA

 

Hey everyone! So we’re smacked up to the beginning of summer. It’s about 80 degrees where I am right now. So, I thought it would be probably a good idea to have a little chat about sunscreen today. I’m going to show you some of the sample products I just received in the mail from Aveeno and Neutrogena.

Aveeno Summer Must Haves
*Press Samples

I’m a very firm believer that the best sunscreen for you or you could possibly use is the one that you would actually be using. The one that you’ll apply and reapply as much as needed. I love to wear sunscreen with high SPF pretty much everyday in the summer. Yes, I tend to get burn to crisps quite easily, so let just say sunscreen is my life saver.

So many products are out this year, so  many great products actually. I’m super excited because I’m having so much fun doing this review. This year both Brands are introducing their must-haves new mineral sunscreens.

Aveeno Mineral Sunscreen

AVEENO Sensitive Skin SPF 50 – It claims that – this new and improved mineral sunscreens are formulated with naturally sourced 100% zinc oxide and active natural oat to combine effective broad-spectrum UVA sun protection with skin soothing benefits.

I can’t leave home without sunscreen especially when I go for a vacation. So, I’ve been wearing it religiously during our trip to Ottawa and have been loving it. I also shared it with my family members and appreciate how it helps protect our skin from being baked by the UV light. A sunscreen that has a nice and natural soothing scents which reminds me of the beach. I really like the smell even though it reads on the bottle as fragrance free. Honestly, I was intrigued by the non-greasy mineral sunscreen formula. This product isn’t greasy at all and the best thing is that it doesn’t irritate skin. The only cons I can think of is that it leaves a white cast on my dad’s darker skin, but I haven’t found a physical sunblock that doesn’t. If you have dry and sensitive skin then Get yours here!

Baby Sunscreen Aveeno

Next new product is the AVEENO Baby Sunscreen SPF 50 – I’m very happy to have this sunscreen for my 2nd grader. He spent his summer outdoor very much everyday and this is a must-haves for him to wear it whether for soccer or swimming in the pool. I love all Aveeno’s products so I wouldn’t hesitate giving this to him. It’s a brand I trust. Get this for your baby.

Aveeno Cleanser

This is one of my favorite Positively Radiant Cleanser, it leaves my skin feels so soft and completely clean. This is a win. I love the formula, I love the way it smells so natural and slightly medicinal. Available in drugstores.

Daily moisturizer

For younger, oilier skins this lotion alone should be plenty for all day moisture and protection while leaving your skin hydrated. For a daily moisturizer that works, this might be just the ticket for you, too.

60 second facial shower .jpg

Aveeno Positively Radiant 60 Second In-Shower Facial –  is a gentle treatment you leave on for just one minute in the shower and because of the steam, it helps to exfoliate and brighten your skin. I noticed tiny micro beads that’s great for exfoliating death skin. If you’re someone who love multi-tasking when in the shower, this In-Shower facial won’t let you down. Find it here! 

Overnight Hydrating Facial Moisturizer

AVEENO Positively Radiant Overnight Hydrating Facial is a deeply hydrating moisturizer that you apply at night. It actually reminds me of the Laniege Sleeping Mask which I’ve been reaching for lately. The formula feels very lightweight on skin and it smells so amazing. I’m also amazed at how quick the product absorbs into my skin leaving skin hydrated and smooth. Smells like a walk through the enchanted forest. Another good thing about this product is that it’s oil free and leaves a soft glow on skin

I think this would make a perfect moisturizer for warm summer night. It’s not super hydrating as other night cream I’ve tried during winter months but this just hit the mark. It’s your summer must haves product if you’ve normal to combination skin typed. Your skin is going to thank you for it. You got to try it. 

Makeup Remover Wipes Aveeno

AVEENO Make-Up Removing Wipes – this product contains Total Soy Complex that not only help even out skin tone and texture but visibly transform dull, uneven skin into brighter, more radiant looking skin. I have tried this wipes over the last few days and I’m satisfied by how well it removes my eye and face makeup. This wipes feels a little thicker than other drugstore brands I’ve tried in a good way. I really appreciate its durability. A wipe that cleans and remove all the dirt and makeup with ease. If you haven’t tried this – here’s the link.

Sheer Zinc SPF50

Another two new and improved mineral sunscreens this summer are from NEUTROGENA and it’s their Sheer Zinc Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 and Face Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 which I’ll talk about next.

Mineral Sunscreen has increasingly gain its popularity over the past years and was lucky enough to receive package containing a top-up of some of my most-loved Aveeno and Neutrogena products. So I thought I’d put together a post combining these two brands and to tell you a little bit more about some of my favorite skincare items from the collection in case you were interested in trying any out.

If you’re into mineral sunscreen then you just have to try this Neutrogena Mineral Sunscreen with SPF 50.  Then your quest for mineral sunscreens ends right here. 

It claims – this gentle formula delivers superior broad spectrum protection against burning UVB and ageing UVA rays – with 2x better UVA protection than the leading mineral sunscreen. It’s mild even on sensitive skin, and it’s free of fragrance, parabens, phthalates, dyes, and irritating chemicals.

With summer officially here, sunscreen with high SPF UVA protection is a must-haves in my household. I love to know what’s your must-haves skincare products this summer?

Sheer Zinc Facial

Next is the NEUTROGENA Sheer Zinc Face Mineral Sunscreen with SPF 50 – it’s of 100% zinc oxide UVA. A new revolutionary product that helps prevent sunburn. I like how easy it applies and doesn’t leave any white globs and disappeared into skin rather quickly. I appreciate a good consistency product which is neither overly liquidy nor thick. This mineral sunscreen is on my check list. Try it out for yourself! 

Body Stick Sunscreen

I’m very excited to be testing out the Ultra Sheer Facial and Body Stick Sunscreen by Neutrogena. This is my first time seeing sunscreen in a stick format. My first thought was a deodorant but a sunscreen with SPF 50+ in a stick – this I’m intrigued to try. Love the amazing scents and I like that it glides on like a dream. No mess on application and so convenient to use. A travel friendly packaging that’s leak proof and the best part is that you can just throw it in your purse. This mineral-based stick sunscreen won’t clog pores, and it helps to prevent signs of aging while protecting your skin. Waterproof and lightweight, for a full face and body UVA protection, try this mineral sunscreen the next time you’re out and about.

I’ve already posted it in my Instagram because I love it so much. I’m very much into skincare right now. Aveeno is hands down one of my favorite drugstore brand.

If you’re new to the brand definitely make sure you try some of the products that I’ve mentioned. Let me know what you think and if you love Aveeno and Neutrogena as much as I do!

So, thanks for stopping and read. I also like to thank Aveeno and Neutrogena for this great opportunity to collaboration.  And until next time, I’m wishing a Great Skin Health! Bye!!!

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…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Up close picture of my favorite products side by side.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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. 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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!

 Thank you so much for stopping by to read. If you did enjoy this post definitely follow my blog. I hope you come to check on my social media down below. Make sure you are following me on Twitter and Instagram (@heysharonoox) for the latest update. In the meantime come and say hi!

Drugstore Beauty Haul – Joe Fresh

 

Hey guys! This January I’ve set myself a challenge: aside from the healthy eating/fitness challenges you get with the start of any New Year, I’ve set myself the mission to be a little more minimalist.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Drugstore beauty hauls are some of my favorite blog posts to read. So a few weeks ago, I decided to pick up some beauty bits from my favorite brand Joe Fresh. I didn’t go too crazy – I’m on a bit of a minimalist kick at that moment. If you like Joe Fresh brand then I think you’ll appreciate all of these products I’m about to show you.

So when Maxi Grocer running one of their beauty clearance,  you know it won’t take long before you’ve stocked up enough for a life supplies. LOL! It may result in a few ‘unnecessary’ or ‘impulse’ purchases but I didn’t go overboard this time.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

JOE FRESH MOUSSE BLUSH 

I’ve been looking for a nice mousse blush to try and was really excited to pick up not one but two blushes at my local Joe Fresh counter.

Starting with this brand’s mousse blush.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I like everything about this blush. It comes in this nice and cute white jar packaging with cap matches the products inside. Did I mentioned already that I really like these two shades?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The shades I got here are in Rose and Melon. Here are the description of the ingredients and where it’s made, in case you’re curious to know.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

With this blush it takes very little effort to blend. I’m really enjoying the performance of this formula. The formula is nicely pigmented and it blends out to a beautiful dewy finish. I adore this product!

Have you tried out any mousse blush products? Let me know what other brands you’ve tried that you’d recommend?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

JOE FRESH TINTED LIP BALM

It’s a deep sheer coral that looks great for everyday wear and natural at the same time. It applies smoothly, but as for the moisturizing I honestly don’t know. It feels more like a lip stain than a lip balm.

Price wise – CAD$8 really is not that cheap for a tinted lip balm, consider their regular lipsticks are only $6. I wouldn’t have picked it up if it wasn’t on sale.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My only gripe is the sweet scented smell on this lip balm. It hangs around. I can’t figure out exactly what the scent is…artificial pomegranate or melon? Whatever the case maybe be … I’m not a huge fan of any strong scented products on my lips and for this reason alone I don’t see myself reaching for it. The smell just make my head spins.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

JOE FRESH EYE PRIMER

Next up is their Eye Primer. I couldn’t find the shade off hand but I’ll put it in my next blog post if I find them.

So, here’s how the packaging looks like, a white cyclinder bottle with a doe foot applicator. Simple, clean and a perfect size for travelling. It contains a good amount of product in this bottle.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is my first experience working with this product and I really like it. It looks like an Ivory shade to me when I did the color swatch. I like the easy to blend formula of this eye primer. CAD$6 price point is amazing!

I’ve been wearing this the moment I got it but I’m going to try again for this week before I write a full detail review. So, I hope you’d bear with me for a little longer.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

JOE FRESH MATTE LIPSTICK

Last but not least is their lipsticks. I’ve several of Joe Fresh’s matte lipsticks and love them including this Nude ones. I was on the hunt for a nude lipstick and picked this up when it was on sale. I was expecting it to be more of a soft brown or peachy tone but to me surprise, it looks incredibly opaque camel in color. I find this shade fits me alright given I’m light-medium toned person. If you’re deep tone then it may looked a little more washed out in my opinion.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The white and clear packaging is simple and sleek. I would say this is a better made plastic packaging. The packaging definitely feels so much solid and durable compared to than other drugstore brands.

On a short note, I do like this lipstick, it’s creamy, moisturizing and more! It doesn’t give a complete matte look that I was expecting but a nice demi-matte finish. I’ll continue to wear this for another week before I share my final thoughts and opinion.

That’s all for my haul. I’ve tried out most of them, some to my liking and some are not. 😦 I’ll make a review on these products, stay tuned! 🙂 Oh yes, let me know which product you like me review first. Don’t forget to leave your comment below.

So it’s the end of my post. If you’re looking for a good cruelty brand beauty products, Joe Fresh does not test their products on animals if you’re concerned. If you’re in Canada you can find them at Shoppers Drug Mart or Loblaws. 

Have you tried any of these products before? What drugstore products are on your wishlist?

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. Bye!

All Natural To Nature – Caprina Goat’s Milk Products

 

 

Hey guys! So happy to see you here.

I received a few of the products from Canus a month ago for consideration. This is my first experience with the brand Caprina. To tell you the truth, I wasn’t very sure about their brand but boy I can tell you that their products are a game changer for me. Continue reading further down to hear why I said that.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
*press sample

But first of all, let’s start by knowing a little bit about Canus. Just bear with me for a little longer. 🙂

Brief history of Canus Company: You’d never believe if I told you that …

“It all started with a bar of soap and a goat.The company’s product line has expanded Canus was making fresh goat’s milk body wash, fresh goat’s milk lotions and more. The entire line was made using fresh goat’s milk. It is still the same today.” Products are available in US and Canada.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

You might have seen this brand while at your local drugstores and have you ever wonder what is this brand anyways? Then you’re not alone. I can totally relate and after trying out some of the products which I’ll be sharing down below if you continue reading, I can quickly summed it up by saying that this drugstore brand has been under-rated. It’s by far an amazing products that will take care of your skin.

Can I surprise you by telling you that it contains goats’ milk and shea butter to keep your skin  smooth and moisturized.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here is the claims on the back of the packaging. It’s paraben free and this finished product is not tested on animals. Made in Canada!

I’ve been trying this body lotion for more than 3 weeks now and I can confidently say it really works. The texture of the cream is smooth with very nice consistency. It has a slight scents of the shea butter that doesn’t really bother me at all. I don’t feel that its tacky or sticky like some other lotion do.

The formula absorb into skin nicely and it feels really fresh especially after taking your shower/bath.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I always look for gentle and natural body wash that could really do its job to actually clean from top to bottom. I go through my body wash a lot. I’m almost 3/4 emptying this body wash already. I’ll keep the bottle for my Favorite June Empties!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A small quantity of gel is sufficient to clean the whole body. I usually apply  say the size of a quarter coin for it to lather (bubbles). It feels nice and natural. I really like it, period!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Last but not least is the Fresh Goats Milk Soap. Oh my gosh! It smells divine. I got mine in Original Formula and it’s the best soap I’ve ever tried. I placed it in my powder room for guests and it makes the room smells amazing.

I’ve tried the soap to wash my hands and I really love it.

Hope you all enjoy this post, the product and the look and I can’t wait to see what you all think!

Wednesday Epic Beauty Snag| JOE FRESH

Joe Fresh beauty

Every once in a while–though I’m hardly in need of more makeup!—I’ll pick up another little pot or two or a lot too many from Joe Fresh to add to my collection.

Yep, I buy this makeup all by myself, which is a big deal as a beauty blogger. I’m pretty sure many of you can relate on. Anyways, now I want to tell you about the latest great steal which I picked up for this week’s Beauty Madness Wednesday which I’ve change the topic to be “Wednesday Epic Beauty Snag” that is getting much love from me ❤

DSC05841

What you’re looking at are three Single Eyeshadows from clockwise is Pebble, Apricot and Charcoal. Each retailed for $4.00 but I got this on liquidation price for $1.94 (basically 50% off). So yay for that! This is Joe Fresh’s range of powder eyeshadow that works for any look.

charcoal eyeshadow

The texture is smooth and it blends nicely. Eeks, shimmer! But don’t worry. On the outer corner, it looks more like a flat colour, and goes on very pretty. If your skin is paler than mine, you’d obviously apply way less than I did above for the swatch, but for darker tones, it is buildable to more intensity. I’m showing only the Charcoal color swatch but I’ll be back to do all the color swatches in my next post when I do a full review.

DSC05863

Another eyeshadow pot I picked up is this Eyeshadow Quad in Limelight. Retailed for $10.00 and I paid $2.44 for this lovely palette. I love the lime green shadow and also the price is a super bargain. So, it’s a 75% discount for this eyeshadow. Yipee!

There are 4 pans in this gorgeous round hard compact packaging. There are two mattes and two shimmery finishing which I’m very excited to try them out for fall though. Lately, I seem to be gravitating to green, olive, dark brown and purple shades. Could it be because of the coming change of season! Oh well, there’s so many pretty colors out there to love, and Fall is best time to try out new shades and new makeup collections.

Lastly, I picked another Eyeshadow Duo in the shade Faded Violet and Iris. Remember I did a full review on it two weeks ago. I’ll put a link here if you like to hop over to read. I got to grab this one for obvious reason, I love the texture and the pigmentation and these purplish colors are perfect to create a smokey eyes look.

Secondly, it was only for $1.74 and I couldn’t pass on this deal. So yay for great deals! Hahaha! I love the great products and the great steal. Love it and last Wednesday, I got a coupon to spend $12.00 on makeup and get $3.00 off. How neat is that, right!

Anyways, that’s it for this week’s Wednesday Epic Beauty Snag. I hope you’ll find this post interesting and helpful. If you’re in Canada, don’t forget to check out Joe Fresh makeup aisle. My US friends, if you have friends visiting Canada, do ask them to grab a few things for you. The price is a real steal and the products are worth it.

Are you a fan of Joe Fresh? Have you tried any of the new shades? What’s your favourite single eyeshadow?

Thank you so much for taking the time to read. Until next week, stay beautiful!

3 Comfortable Matte Lipsticks Part 1

 

 

Hey cuties,

Do you have a certain time of phrase where you love a certain type of products where you love and love more of. For me I am becoming very obsessed with matte lips and part of the reason is because there are so many comfortable formula that really rocks which I think it has never has been.

So, don’t get me wrong, I still love my shine and glossy lips but I just feel that I started to appreciate the matte lip color a little bit more recently. I wanted to share with you 3 matte lipsticks that I loved and keeps going back to. I think they are comfortable formula to wear and I’m also sharing the colors that I really love, RED!

Wearing these lipsticks, I don’t have to put lip balm first since it is comfortable enough to wear as it is. If you are wondering what type of lip balm you can wear before wearing a matte lipstick due to another whole level of dryness, then I will recommend you use the esos lip balm. I will be doing are full review next week on the esos lip balm. So, don’t forget check back later. Okay, so this lip balm will still maintain the properties of a matte finish lips simply because it is not greasy, not overly shinny while keeping your lips more hydrated. Like I just mentioned earlier, if you lips are very dry then go with the esos lip balm as a lip primer for hydration purposes.

First up is the Kate Moss Lasting Finish by Rimmel in 107 is a beautiful red plum tone which is so pretty. This is my first one try on this Kate Moss matte lipstick and for months and months I have been telling myself this is the most comfortable lipstick I have ever tried.  It feels so velvety smooth on, full coverage the shade is awesome and fabulous pigmentation. If you love red plum shade tone then you have found what you are looking for. I personally feel that with Kate Moss lipsticks, you could go no wrong. This 107 shade is so beautiful and stunning.

Next is this Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm. I got this in 250 Standout. The color is buildable and this shade in 107 is a beautiful red. I love how it stays on my lips and it feels lightweight. I just love the intensity of this matte lipstick.

The next shade that I will be sharing with you guys will be the Wet n Wild in Pink Suga which looks nude color.  This shade looks a little paler and a little bit heavier but I still think that it is comfortable.

Question Tuesday| Walmart

Q: Tell us what you love and hate about shopping your beauty products at Walmart!

A:  I guess Ursula says it all in one breath 😀

Well, this is what I think – the upside of shopping my beauty products at Walmart is their low prices and return policy. Depending on the Walmart you go to, some have available Tester products which I find it helpful. There are two exclusive brands at Walmart. Can you make a guess which brand?

The downside is that they’ve limited product inventories in store and their liquidation sale products which were on the shelf weren’t such a big deal. Moreover, not all Walmart carries the same beauty inventories.

I wish that Walmart here will have more makeup brands and please have the $5 beauty box available here too.

Now, is your chance to express how your shopping experience at Walmart affected your purchasing power. Feel free to leave your comments below.

Thank you as usual for stopping by.

Volum’ Express Mascara

Hey guys!

I have been using this volume express mascara by Maybelline on and off for the past few weeks and I can say that I am satisfied with the outcome that it gives for my lashes.

Volum’Express Mascara in Very Black (net wt: 10 ml)

A simple but yet lovely packaging. I really like the packaging since it has an elegant look on it. The brush is thin and the wand is of standard wand size. The formula dries up pretty fast and this black color mascara really makes my eyes looks bigger and natural looking.

It lengthens and add volume to my lashes making it look fabulous. On this look, I did a double application for an optimum results. It does looked a little bit clumpy at the tip of my lashes. But you can see that it separates my lashes perfectly.

This mascara is very easy to use and I admit that I’m not so crazy about the clumps but definitely love the lengthening and voluminizing effect on my eyes. Another set back on this mascara is that it is not waterproof.

So, if you are looking for a waterproof type then you are better off with their Volum’ Express in Colossal, Big Eyes and Pumped up.

Overall, I am quite happy with my purchase and would definitely repurchase again once I ran out. It’s a decent mascara and the price is reasonably priced for a drugstore brand.

Which of the Maybelline mascara did you owned?

Thank you for reading.
