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!


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.


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.


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.


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”.


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!


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!


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.


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’m 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.

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!

Lancome Hypnose Star


Hi Babes!



I’m feeling awesome today and thanks to Lancome Hypnose Star, you really make my day! I started my day by trying out some eyeshadows I got for the holidays. I don’t feel like wearing falsies and so I picked my number one favorite mascara which is from Lancome to enhance my eyelashes.


And, Oh Nelly!!! Look at my long extended lashes. I’m loving it. Let’s get real, I admit I have short and sparse eyelashes but with this Hypnose Star, it’s really a life saver.


Best thing is it lasted the whole day. I did a review before in my post which I’ll put a link here.

To refresh your memories and for new friends visiting my blog, this Lancome Hypnose Star sample was send to me for my honest opinion.


I don’t have any complain about this mascara at all. It smells so amazing and it works on me. Want to get an extra glam without falsies, head over to Pharmaprix Pincourt or Galerie Beaute where their friendly salespersons are there to assist you. I highly recommend this.

See for yourself!
