Current Favorites Makeup!

 

Laniege Lip & Eye Makeup Remover
*PR Sample

Today I’m going to do my current favorites since I’ve been testing out many great products that really wowed me. I’ve two great makeup removers that I’ve been loving lately. I talked with this on my Instagram but this is the Laniege Lip & Eye Makeup Remover which I’ve been so obsessed lately. I just thought like this makeup remover is the one. I brought this with me during my vacation and it’s like the best thing I’ve ever use whenever I need to remover my makeup. It’s my favorite favorite favorite makeup remover. I recommend it to everybody! 

@Laniege BB Cushion
*PR Sample

Next is the BB Cushion Hydra Radiance in the shade beige by Laniege. You can find this available in six different shades from porcelain to cacao. I don’t know why I love this so much but I just love it. I love this BB cushion because it feels lightweight, comfortable and hydrating on my skin, not to mention the coverage is simply amazing and with no buildup. Goals!

@Rodial Dragon's Blood Cleansing Water
*PR Sample

I’ve to mention the Rodial Dragon’s Blood Cleansing Water because if I had to repurchase all my skincare, like this would be what I’d buy. The price is not overly expensive, cheerful and it works. I really like it and the scent is insanely addictive! It’s so good!

#Toofaced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar

Moving on is this old charm that was highly raved over the internet awhile ago but I only happened to have pick it up at Marshalls recently. I heard so many good things about this palette and really happy to finally add this into my makeup stash. I’ve been reaching for this Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar throughout my trip in Toronto and again since I got back. It’s safe to say it’s my current favorite go-to everyday palette. The chocolate scents smell so good and should I say addictive! I mean … it has real cocoa powder in it … what’s not to love!? The shades are super soft and highly pigmented. I’m impressed by how easily they blend. So effortlessly!!!

In case you didn’t know, this product is cruelty free! The texture is very soft and so easy to blend out. You can never go wrong with Too Faced eyeshadows! If you haven’t already, you’ve to try it!

#Helpinghandspenan

This may not be makeup related but I’ve to mention it because it’s the best gift I’ve received this month. I got this handmade bag as a gift from my lovely sister-in-law when she was in Borneo, Sarawak. What a skillfully hand-weaved bag made by the women of Penan tribe! You can see a lot of love and passion poured into making such intricate bag. It’s my first time seeing this cute design and bright color bag. Such a beautiful color that just scream summer to me! A big shout out to Polly for this wonderful gift! I adore it!

Best timing ever to arrive at my doorstep. Needless to say, I brought it with me to my Toronto trip last week. It holds all my makeup essentials and tons of other stuff too. So practical and durable quality. I think it was the best decision to bring for travelling.

Yes, I actually took a lot of photos during my trip so definitely make sure to check my other blog if you want to see what I got up to while I was out there!

I’d love to know how’s your summer’s like? Leave me a comment and let me know what’s on your radar the next couple of months.

Thanks so much for stopping by and read.

This month, I’m really excited to be sharing a PR Box Unboxing with your guys. There are some interesting and new baby products in this box. A big thanks to my wonderful PR agent for sending me this free samples.

PR Box Unboxing

If like me you’re a fan of organic, natural and cruelty free products then you’ll know how amazing these formulas and products really are.

First thing I want to talk about are The Green Beaver Company Baby Wash and Baby Lotion. A Canadian family company founded on the belief that the best ingredients come from Mother Nature. This brand is certified Organic! These stuff are amazing, the formulas are made with your baby benefits in mind. When I use baby wash and baby lotion on my little guy multi-days in a week, I want to know that there’s skin food benefits in them.

#leapingbunny Cruelty Free logo

What’s great about this whole process is that you can find logos of what this product is free of on the packaging. Look for the certified logo of a leaping bunny if you’re looking for a cruelty free product and several other logos that shows what it’s Free of.

#Weleda Baby

Weleda has a vast range of products for face, body, baby and your personal care with affordable prices and great quality products. Here’s a brief history and value behind this brand which I thought might interest you. “Our purpose is to cultivate beauty. We are committed to supporting your overall wellbeing and beauty, and that of every living being. We strive for each of us to be empowered to cultivate beauty in the world, for ourselves, for our children and the future of our planet.” I love supporting brands and companies that holds the same shared values.  Have you found your inner nature?

Weleda Diaper Cream

Diaper Care Cream for that gentle protection on your baby’s delicate skin. I share some product swatches below for your convenience. Well, I don’t have a small baby to test it on but I’ll be curiuos to hear what’s your thoughts on this one if you’ve try it on your baby already! 

What it does: It claims to soothes skin and diminishes the appearance of redness from day one. Do you agree with their claim? Comment below.

Weleda Face Cream

Next baby care product is the Weleda Nourishing Face Cream that feels so creamy and smooth to touch. It smells so good and relaxing at the same time. I really like the scent of this Calendula flower extracts. I can smell it all day!

What it does: Moisturizing, soothing, easily absorbed, shelters skin from dryness. Helps support skin’s moisture balance and leaves it velvety-soft. I honestly believe this cream is a must-have during this dry winter season. Suitable for use by adults with sensitive skin, too! I can’t wait to give this a test run!

Weleda Skinfood

Weleda Skin Food cream feels so moist and hydrated on the skin. It has the natural plant extract scents that’s so aromatherapeutic making my body feeling extremely calm and relaxed. I could feel it almost immediately when I had it on. I like treating my skin with skinfood and needless to say I’m now completely hooked!

What it does: For dry and rough skin. Formulated with plant extract traditionally used to soothe the skin. Skin Food hydrates skin to give you that healthy-looking glow. I urge you to give it a go!

#Suro Kids Organic Syrup
Made in Canada

Suro Organic Elderberberry Syrup is great to fighting cold, cough and sore throat. A weeks ago, my little guy caught the worst winter flu plague ever. The fever, flu and cough took a huge toll on his health. It was so bad that, I’ve to rush to our nearest pharmacy to grab a bottle of cold and fever mixture to calm his fever down. One thing I learned that day was, as a parent it’s advisable to always have a cold mixture on standby all year round. I was grateful to receive this in my pr box, it pretty much got my kid covered from now on.

What it does: Traditionally used in herbal medicine to help fight colds and relieve sore throats, cough and fever. For fast, effective relief from colds and flu, cough and soreOREthroat. Elderberries contain over 2 to 3X the antioxidant value of blueberries. This product is all natural, gluten free, preservative free and kid safe.

Moving on to the next two products from the Boo Bamboo Baby range are the Biodegradable Baby Wipes and Baby Natural Sunscreen Spray for kids.

What it does:

SPF 30 Kids & Baby Natural Sunscreen Spray Mini – specially formulated, gentle Broad Spectrum UVA / UVB Protection to shield your baby from sun damage. It claims to be fast absorbing, non-white cast and unscented. Spray it as instructed and just leave the rest to the sunscreen!

Radius Organic Baby

Last but not least, I got two items from a good organic brand that in my opinion was a bit under-rated, and it’s the Radius Organic Children Toothpaste in Coconut Banana and the Baby Toothbrush.

I wish I found this brand when my kids were still a baby but t’s not too late for my little ones to still use and enjoy its flavorful toothpaste.

What it does: 

USDA Organic Children’s Toothpaste – the unique formula is certified USDA organic, delivering a natural deep clean, minus any unpronounceable chemicals or additives. It’s quite literally good enough to eat. If you’re looking for a product that’s utterly organic, hs natural whitening, eliminate nasties and tasty, look no further. This is a must-try for your baby!

So if you’re interested on natural and cruelty free products, look no further. Give these products a try!

I hope you guys find this useful especially those with young kids. Let me know which you’ll probably pick for your little ones. I’d like to know if you’re inspired by any of this box unboxing in the comment below.

Fall Glam with Rodial – PR Unboxing & Reviews

 

Hey everyone! I’ve yet another PR Unboxing for you guys. I thought you enjoyed the last one so I thought I’d show it to you on my post what I got sent recently by the brand Rodial Cosmetics. I was sent these new collection so that I can try them out and potentially share them with you. And I’m very grateful for this.

In this post I’m going to talk all about makeup products to glam up this fall/winter.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
*Press Samples

I’ll start with a PR Unboxing and then we’ll go to product reviews that I’ve dying to share with you guys. These makeup products are sent to me for my review and it’s my first time trying out this product line. We got the Rodial Glamolash Mascara Skinny, Instaglam Magic Pen, Suede Lips and a Blush. 

Rodial Glamolash Mascara Skinny

I’m going to start with the Glamolash Mascara Skinny since it’s the first product which I took out from the bag and the rest follows next.  It says on the packaging – a Soft Black & Lash enchancer and everything you read is true. I’ve been testing out several different mascara lately and it’s safe for me to say that I’m quite impressed with this product.

Glamolash mascara

It has a straight up wand which I quite like a lot honestly. With my typical straight and sparse lashes I really appreciate wand like so. The applicator sort of reminds me of the Tarte Lights, Camera Lashes mascara that I just reviewed not too long ago. And as far as the formulation goes, it’s not super heavy on my lashes and with this one, I find that after I curled my lashes to the max, I’m able to put this on and it’s able to hold my curl and not weight them down. I find this is a great mascara if you’ve lashes that are hard to keep curled. One last thing, the formula isn’t heavy nor super clumping or anything like that. If you’re in the market for a good quality mascara, I recommend you to check this one out.

Rodial Instaglam Magic Pen

Instaglam Magic Pen Eye Glow gives you a nice pearlescent look on the inner eyes and in the corner of the bottom lash line.

Instaglam crystal

Can we just admire the beauty of this gorgeous crystal at the end of this sleek black pen packaging.

Instaglam Magic Pen Swatch Rodial

The formula is not chalky and it gives you that beautiful pearlize finish. I wear it on my brow bone and inner corner of my eyes and I’m loving how it brigthens up.

Rodial Suede Lips

Suede Lips by Rodial in the shade Rodeo Drive is a rich orange red and is perfect for glamming up your look this holidays. This velvety lip pencil gives your lips that super silky feels but provides a matte finish that’s not drying on your lips.

Rodial Sude Lips Crayon

The formula is not too hard nor too soft that makes application super easy. It says on their website that it contains vitamin E which probably is the reason why the formula feels so comfortable to wear.

Lip color swatch by Rodial

I’m liking the texture and this shade is simply gorgeous. Nicely pigmented. It’s glides on creamy and long wearing. I wore it again today and it lasted for hours. It’s so easy to touch up if you want to but in my case I like it even after it faded to an even and nice lip stain. My only complaint is that I notice some tiny feathering on my top lips when I put it on but it’s not very visible unless you go very near to the person. I then use a lip liner to help prevents it from feathering and it works. Problem solved!

Rodial Blush

I’ve my Blusher in Copacabana which is kind of a brigh coral peach shade. This stuff is stunning!

Inside packaging Rodial Blush

It comes in a nice round metal compact packaging with a cute mirror. I like how lightweight and compact it is to bring in your purse. The texture is smooth and it feels almost airbrush when I had it on the other day. It stays on for a good 10 hours and could be longer if only I didn’t remove it for bed time.

Finger blush swatch

You can totally layer it up for more intense look but if you like your makeup to be less is more then one swoosh is enough for each cheek. It just applies beautifully no matter  how much or little I apply. I really like the color payoff. Such a beautiful color!

Rodial blush color swatch

You can go ahead and add this blusher onto your wish list this year. I’m currently in love with the texture and this gorgeous color. And if you’re a hater for shimmery blush then this stuff is made for you. It gives your cheek that healthy sunny glow that’s not over the top.

Overall I was pleased with these products from Rodial. I wear them very frequently! Let me tell you that I’ve been completely obsessed with this glam.

Which of these Rodial products is your favorite? Have you heard of this brand before? Share it in the comment below.

Neutrogena Back To School Supplies

 

Back To School for most people is all about shopping for school supplies but don’t forget to shop for your skin care products while you there. Imagine all the stress and anxiety of going to high school. So exciting and nerve breaking too am I right! Having said that, with high stress, the uninvited guest usually pops out of nowhere. That’s right, I’m talking about acne.

Neutrogena skincare products

It seems that Neutrogena is killing it with their Back To School Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne product lines. I’ve high hope on all these product samples I received from the PR company. Huge shout out to the team!

rapid clear cleanser

Do you ever have a feeling of deja vu? Drugstore skincare products are starting to feel like this to me. I love talking skincare with you guys in my blog. Since summer will be over soon I thought of sharing some products that will make your back to school easy peasy.

These works amazingly well. I typically don’t get pimples but when I do I use this to help get rid of them:

NEUTROGENA® Rapid Clear® Stubborn Acne® Cleanser

A cleanser that works to remove dry and uneven patches. With only a few wash I started to notice some of my uneven skin disappears. The formula work well with my skin and I’m so glad it did. If you’re a combo to dry skin type with moderate acne problem then you’re going to find this product helps. Worth checking it out.

rapid clear leave on mask

NEUTROGENA® RAPID CLEAR®STUBBORN ACNE DAILY LEAVE-ON MASK

I like to wear this every once a week in the morning especially when I know I’ll be indoors most of the day. You just wet your hands and then apply the product all over the face. Once it dries up, you get a smooth and powdery finish feel to it.

rapid clear spot gel

NEUTROGENA® RAPID CLEAR®STUBBORN ACNE SPOT GEL

My skin has been good these past months and since I don’t have any breakouts or pimples I’m not able to test out this spot gel to its fullest accuracy. But if you’re on the lookout for something that has benzoyl peroxide than look no further.

Neutrogena claims this product helps clear breakouts with maximum strength and reduce the signs of stubborn breakouts. It’s required that you wash your hands every time before applying products to sensitive skins. Keep your hands away from pimples for your skins sake. Use spot gel instead. Neutrogena is a drugstore brand I trust.

acne correct and cover neutrogena

NEUTROGENA® OIL FREE ACNE CORRECT & COVER PINK GRAPEFRUIT MOISTURIZER

I can’t stress enough my obsession for BB cream or tinted moisturizer and when I saw this in the pr box I was elated with the prospect of trying these bad boys out. Love the lighweight formula and coverage. It makes my skin looks more even and it feels really nice having this moisturizer on. At $8.97 a tube you can’t go wrong with that!

neutrogena bb cream

Available in 2 shades. Fair to Light and Medium to Tan. Can’t find your perfect shade, you can mix and match to your desirable skin color. This line is great for sensitive or acne prone skin types, I recommend you look in your local drugstore.

As usual, let me know what you think. Which product will you likely pick for yourself or your loved ones? I’d love to know in the comments.

Thank you guys for always reading, please comment and subscribe. I hope you guys enjoyed hearing my opinion and seeing how these products works for me. I’ve some exciting things coming up, some fun stuff that I’ve been working on and I cant’ wait to show it to you. So, I’ll talk to you guys again a later post.

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!

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.

#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.

night cream texture

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!!!
