Beauty Starts with Laneige Brightening Kit

 

When it comes to Korean Skincare, Laneige is up on top of my favorite brands. Laneige’s first launched their “Everyday New Face” campaign in 1994. And only in the year 2014 to present day that they make their first entrance to U.S and Canada. Available in Sephora and major stores.

Laneige Brightening Kit

Let me introduce you to their Bright Renew Line  today. I got the Laneige Brightening Kit from Sephora while ago but just didn’t got the chance to do a post review. So today I’ve put together a post to tell a little bit more about some of my skincare favorites from the line in case you’re interested to try any out.

Laneige Renew Serum

First product I’m going to talk about in no particular order is the Laneige Bright Renew Original Serum.  The formula is of milky serum with a pump applicator to dispense product. This serum contains a rich antioxidants such as ginkgo bibola that helps the reverse signs of aging to your skin. It feels lightweight on my skin and it’s not greasy at all. I do love how it gives my skin that healthy glow look that’s hydrating and yet brightening.  Applaud goes to Laneige for keeping a high standard serum! If you’re looking for a serum that’s brightening and smells amazing, I highly recommend this.

Laneige Renew Brightening Cream

Moving on is the Laneige Bright Renew Original Cream. This deluxe size sample comes in a tube packaging while the full size is in a heavy glass jar with a spatula. The formula is soft and light. I would say the texture is like kind of gel-cream hybrid.

On application this product is sort of water upon application and dries to a lovely silky finish. It also gives a cooling sensation just like all other products from the same line. Let me tell you, I’m obsessed with the scents. As with everything with Laneige, the smell is delicious.

Laneige Sleeping Mask

Laneige Water Sleeping Mask is so lightweight and has that cooling effect that relaxes your skin. I love using a light mask as part of my evening routine and this product is a dream come true. The formula is a gel-type that provides intensive hydration, vitality, and brightening effect.

This stuff is so dreamy! I went through it so fast this summer that I’m already on my second jar. I like to use it on dry winter nights too. It’s non-greasy nor sticky and perfect for all skin types. If you’re someone who dreads putting heavy moisturizers, then this product is for you. There’s a reason why this is Laneige best-selling product. I love it and I know you’re going to love it too.

Laneige Multi-Cleanser

Last pit stop on our Beauty Starts … is the Laneige Multi Cleanser. I’m really impressed with this foaming cleanser. It smells so good and it lathe to a creamy foam with just a tiny bit. A little goes a long way with this product. It make my face really clean and a brightening effect after. As for the scents, I’m pleased to say that it doesn’t cause any breakout on me. One thing I noticed is that I feel this product could make my skin feel dryer and that’s about it. Since I’ve the Bright Renew Original Cream, I apply it all over my skin and I can feel the immediate effect of the products being absorb. Such hydration and nourishment that my skin needs.

I’ll leave you here to define your own beauty but as for me, I know mine starts with Laneige. How about you? Share it below.  

YSL L'Homme L'Intense Eau de Parfum

Last but not least is this YSL L’Homme L’Intense Eau De Parfum which I claimed using my Sephora Reward Points with the purchase.

After I got past the gorgeousness of this hexagon shape like bottle – I gave this fragrance a whirl. If you’ve been following my blog you know that I love the scents of men Eau De Parfum on my man and well on myself too if I may. I really like mens fragrance a lot more over womens. I just love the fresh woody and light musky scents. Not ashamed to admit it but I know I’m weird.

I mentioned before and again today that perfume is considered something personal that reflects the character of an individual. Finding that perfect scent can be difficult but when someone finds the perfect perfume he tends to wear the same fragrance for years. It becomes part of the individual’s identity each and every day.

When I first wear it I don’t know what to expect but I wasn’t expecting this. This eau de parfum can be described as “An ambery woody notes bursting with character, featuring sensual and vibrant leather accords. The fragrance is infused with precious ingredients of orange blossom facet reinforced by profound, subtle cedar wood”. Oh how I love thee! I want to smell this on my man every single day moving forward. It’s really a masculine perfume one that’s sophisticated and expresses a more powerful character.

The small size and good value make good sense especially I love everything in this travel kit. I’m a fan of Laneige and it will continue to stay in my top favorites Korean brand.

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.

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.

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.

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.

“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.

Visible Lift® Serum Absolute Advanced Age-Reversing Makeup SPF17

Visible Lift® Serum Absolute Advanced Age-Reversing Makeup SPF 17 DSC00943

Today, I’m going to give my overview of this L’oreal Visible Lift Foundation which I have been using for quite sometime. I remembered, I got this fabulous foundation awhile ago and it was on special. I paid half price of $19.00(1.0 fl oz) for it. Well, after minutes of digging and almost turning the bin upside down (just kidding!). I was so glad that I found my skin shade (Hurray!!!). And yes! I got mine in Honey Beige (No. 155). Perfect color tone for me.

There were twevlve color shades available and ranges from lightest to darkest shades. The darkest shades will suit more likely for the medium skin tone. Can be purchased online at http://www.lorealparis.ca or at your L’oreal counter store.

I wore it this morning and are very excited to give my first thought about it. Mind you, this foundation felt so lightweight and smooth. I love it. The texture is slightly thick but soft. It has a silky texture and exceptional blending ability. It has medium coverage that was able to cover most of my uneven skin. I started by applying moisturizer first and then proceeded to applying the foundation. Putting moisturizer as a base is important for someone who has dry skin. This product seems to cater more for normal to oily skin person. I just dispensed with one pump of the foundation on the back of my hand and apply them with my fingers. It blends very well and set in pretty fast.

Here is my photo shots taken The “Before” L’oreal Visible Lift foundation and “After” with makeup and the amazing foundation.

Photo taken after wearing the foundation for 11 hours. I can still see my eyeshadows and maybe a little bit of  some shine on my T-zone area and that’s about it.  I see that my face still looked fresh and this foundation is so long lasting, except for my lips of course. I didn’t do any touched up at all. I’m amazed!

On their website, they claimed that this Visible Lift Serum Absolute – features an age reversing serum of 5 ingredients in 1 luminous makeup. This new makeup instantly evens skin tone with a luxuriously lightweight formula that doesn’t settle into lines and wrinkles.

Okay, let’s not get too excited. First of all, no makeup foundation is age-reversing, not even a second. Well, I didn’t buy it because it’s age-reversing but it does make me feel fresh and less fatigue.

I also love the bottle packaging that comes with a pump applicator. A little goes a long as the saying goes. Great product with great value for money.

Let me know on the comment below. Do you have an everyday foundation? What are some of your favorite shades and brand?

Thank you for reading!
