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!!!

Some Favorite Beauty Products


Hey guys! Today I’m going to share with you what I’ve in my makeup bag. They’re some favorites which I’m so excited to talk about.I know this is a rather late post but I’ve been so busy and with the days turns to weeks so quickly, I find it hard to juggle so many things at the same time. But I love you guys, and I want to share this post badly, so here are some bites and pieces of my favorite beauty products for #augfavorite.


So here’s what’s in my makeup bag.


Maybelline Fit Me Shine Free Foundation stick in Golden Beige was so easy to use and bring for travelling.

I decided to bring it instead of liquid foundation since I wasn’t planning on going to do a full face makeup when I’m at the beach. So, this foundation is just perfect. It has light medium coverage and it blends like butter. One thing to put into consideration is that the formula is more suitable for normal to combination skin. And if you’re oily skin, then you might not enjoy this product as much.

I’ve combination to dry skin typed and it works well on me. You could layered without it looking cakey. That’s a plus! I also love the fact that it gives a natural finishing which was what I was looking for on vacation. A foundation that wasn’t too over the top and I still look presentable throughout the trip. Yay!


Next is the Covergirl Cheekers Blush in Golden Pink. I’ve tried other blushes from Covergirl but this one is new to me. The shade is what I’ve been looking for to bring with me on my vacation. I see myself using it too as a transition from summer to fall or when the cold weather hits.

This is seriously the prettiest color I have ever put on my cheeks. It’s a warm rosy pink which is not pink b any means and would look so flattering on many skin tones. The pigmentation is just right- not too much and not too sheer.  It blends evenly and lightweight coverage. I love that gives a nice sun golden finishing.


Milani Color Statement Lipliner in 09 is my favorite shade. It glide on smoothly and the color is perfect for everyone. I really love how pretty it lined my lips. You could even fill your lips with this lipliner which I did during my vacation. I got lazy some days and so I just use this lip liner to make my lips look pretty! Could anyone relate?

I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for an affordable drugstore lip product with amazing quality. By the way, I wanted to point it out that Milani’s product is not tested on animals, (Cruelty Free) in case you want to know.


I also got the BH Cosmetics  Long Wear Shadow Primer in Malt in my makeup bag. This is a wonderful product! I love love love the consistency and the color. I find this primer easy to apply and blend. The color stays perfect all day/night out and it doesn’t crease. Very pleased with this product. Great to work with. So, yay for that!

Another thing is it certainly reminds me of the Mac Cosmetics Paint Pots except this one is much cheaper in price. Comment below if you think this could be a dupe to the Mac Painterly Pot? 


I absolutely adore the Wet n Wild  Coloricon Eyeshadow Trio in Walking on Eggshells. 

Let me just say that this trio is pretty much the best thing to happen to a girl who’s worried about her makeup and budget. Amazing quality product that’s so affordable. Super pigmented and they stayed all day. Very easy to blend and I’m truly impressed with the quality. I’ve been going back and forth with other eyeshadows for review but this is always my go to for natural look. As a matter of fact, I’m wearing them on my eyes today. Love love this! One thing I’m hoping for is that they don’t change the formula. They’re ridiculously amazing!

I will definitely repurchase it for my family members and my best friend. You must try it too 🙂


I absolutely love Marcelle 3 in 1 Micellar Solution! I go through micellar water very fast and I’m on my second bottle already.

How did I used it? I just dab a good amount on a sponge or cotton pads and then wipe off the makeup. For stubborn eyeliner and mascara that refuse to be removed this works like magic. I like that it removes makeup easily and leaves no dirty residue behind. It’s not greasy at all, I promise.

I  would recommend this to anyone who is on a budget buy. Another thing worth mentioning is that, it’s so travel friendly.


Clinique Water Therapy Hand Cream is incredibly brilliant. It absorbs to your skin like no other. It leaves skin feeling moisturized and soft. They’re 100% fragrance free. I got compliments from my hunny bear that my skin feels baby soft.

What’s in your makeup travel bag? Comment below what’s your beauty essential to bring on your vacation? I hope you had a great time!

Thank you so much for stopping by. Hope to see you on the next blog 🙂

Question Tuesday| Are You Cleansed from Digital Detox?


When I was on my one week vacation it’s also the start of my digital detox. Which means no internet, no phones, no TV, no iPads and nothing. I know I’ve been on the internet and using everything digital too much. So, this time I wanted to take the opportunity to just go back in time.

First stop, I make sure that I don’t check on the internet after breakfast for the next 6 hours (for two consecutive days). I don’t read emails and I turned off my phone when I was out. It’s very hard initially and this makes me realize how much dependent I was.

Have you heard of digital detox? Would you be interested to do a challenge to be without internet, phone and TV for the next 24 hours? What do you think would be the hardest thing about been so dependent on them?

I think it would be an interesting experiment and I would love it if you try it at home. I love to see how you did without digital detox.

Tweet me when you’re back on the internet.

Okay, I’m digital cleansed and would very much love to hear your stories.

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you on the next post.

Milani Mini Beauty Haul + Trial


Hey guys! I got several products by Milani from Walmart and I thought to just do a mini beauty haul because this is genuinely exciting to me.


I’m going to start with the blushes since this is the most raved and hyped product in the beauty world even now.

Milani’s Baked Blush in LUMINOSO [Luminous Peachy Pink (Vegan)] as many YouTubers claim is an exact dupe for the infamous the Balm Coralista for a fraction of the cost and I have to agree.


I got the first blush in Corallina last summer and since I heard so many youtubers talking about it, and was curious to try out their blush in Luminoso. It just a perfect oral shade for summer.

I’ve tried the Corallina blush before (I’ll put a link here) and really like it. They’re very pigmented and easy to blend and buff them out. A little goes a long way and really like the formula of baked blush. True to color and I just love how intense the application was without going overboard.


It has cute packaging and with a blush applicator on the second tier including a good size mirror.

It’s kinda dry but smooth texture. Almost feels like powder blush but more intense color, if that makes sense. I love blushes that’s dewy and looks glowy and natural It’s also buildable to apply. The color is coral-ly – peach and a little glowy which I really like. I’ve decided to kinda play around more with that.


Up-closed picture. To me blush is my summer kinda thing. Tell me if you feel the same in the comment below. This is the blush I’ve been looking for.


Color swatch of the gorgeous of Luminoso in peachy shade and it’s vegan too. I find that this blush is absolutely fabulous and you cannot beat the price for the quality of this product. This blush lasts and I can’t say enough great things about this blush. The color luminoso gives my skin an amazing glow. Yay!


Here is the comparison shade I got side by side. On my left is the Corallina and Luminoso. I really think it would work on every skin color/shade.


Well, I love Milani for what I’ve tried and so I got to pick up a few other products to show you guys. I’ve this lipstick and it’s in the shade Uptown Mauve. It’s a red mauve shade that’s looks go pretty. I really love the formula and this color especially for evening wear.


I love Milani Color Statement Lipstick because I love how long lasting it is and when I saw the intense shade I’m like come to mama! It smells really nice and super easy to apply.


And honestly, this is one swipe and just see how opaque it is. I will definitely get more of this. It feels very comfortable and very moisturizing.


This is the last 2 products that I got. It’s their Lip Liner in 04 All Natural and 08 Fuchsia. So this is a cool favorite and it’s the All Natural color lip liner. It’s a nice matte lip liner and this is the right one. Perfect one lip liner.

A beautiful color Fuchsia that is out of the world. I picked this to wear underneath my Uptown Mauve lipstick since I don’t have this shade. Well, you know I love a good lip liner!


Goes on so smooth and the color you see is the color you get, huge fan!!

I’m feeling excited with summer and I’m just going to wrap up this post. So, that’s it for today’s mini haul and hope you guys have enjoyed it.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great day. I hope to see you guys again on the next one. Bye!

Summer Drugstore Beauty Haul Under $5


Hey guys! So I’m bringing you a drugstore beauty haul under $5 today. I know that I haven’t done a haul for a long time. I know I’ve been slaking a little lately, but I’ll make up to you guys. The months of May and June passed with a blink of an eye and we’re already staring at July. I have a lot of beauty and makeup products waiting for me to try them out. I wanted to make sure to give each product a fair trial/test before sharing my thoughts and opinion for you guys. Well, at least that how I worked.

So, this summer drugstore beauty haul is all about Garnier products. I got these because they’re on sale and this also pushed me to get the products.

So, let’s get into it:


Though I have my mainstays (don’t we all?), I’m constantly trying out new products that come my way or catch my eye while perusing the beauty aisle. I can’t walk into Sephora, Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart, drugstores or basically on the internet without buying some beauty products which I never intended to purchase. There’s always a hits or misses but some just stand out from the rest.

I do not have many facial  products from Garnier but when I saw all these were sold for less than $5.00 at the drugstore, I had to do a haul. I’m quite excited to try them actually.


The first product I got here is the Nourishing Cleansing Oil for Dry Skin by Garnier Clean. I got this for $2.96 on special. Regular price was $10.99 at Uniprix (Drugstore).

If you’ve been following my blog, you know that I’m obsessed with skin care products. I love trying out new products for you guys and everything is game.

The only negative thing about this product is the bottle that it comes in. I love the pump, but somehow the bottle always manages to leak a bit and leave oil behind on the counter. Not really a big deal, but if you are going to travel with it you should definitely pack in in a zip-lock bag or something. I would not take this with me for travelling since I can use the other products I have.

This Cleansing Oil I’ll put it on my vanity. I’ve tried it a few times to remove makeup and even the toughest, yes – I’m referring to waterproof eyeliner and mascara, would just came off easily. There are some oily feeling on skin when touched but you just cleansed it with their Smoothing Cream Cleanser I’m going to talk about below.

I love this stuff! I have combination skin, but it leans more on the side of dry, so this stuff is perfect for me. I will be re-purchasing when it runs out.


This Smoothing Cream Cleanser contains jojoba and macademia oils which is suitable for dry skin person. It gently cleans and restores softness to dry skin. I paid $2.96 when it was on sale.

It’s a little steep for drugstore cleanser at $10.99 on regular price but it’s totally worth it if you can get it on special deals.


I’ve several short trips for traveling next month and would definitely love to share with you what I’ll be bringing in my beauty bag.

Really am looking forward to try this one.

I really like that the formula is for dry skin. I’ve some uneven skin and dry skin around my nose area especially in winter. So, I’m hoping this will help.


Well, you can’t go wrong with this price at $2.96, right! Here is a closed up claims by Garnier. This Reparative Balm would be suitable for those who has very dry skin. You’d going to love this.

Since it’s summer now, I’ll have to keep it till winter when the weather gets drier for my skin. I’ll do a review once I’ve tried it for a good period of time. So, I’ll keep your guys posted.


I wasn’t in the market for a new moisturizer when I came across Garnier’s Pure shine control moisturizer, but it was on the clearance rack, so I thought to give this a try. Well, I’ve combination skin that tends to lean to the drier side but in summer, I noticed my skin is a little oily on my T-zone area.

So, this comes as a perfect product for me to test it for you guys who has oily skin. I honestly would say that you’ve to give it a good chance to see results as its effectiveness seems to build over the first few weeks with regular use but after about the 3rd week it’s doing a brilliant job for me and provides a good base for make-up as well.


I’m going to continue using it this summer and so far I’m loving it.

I guess this is kind of a Summer Haul but I managed to get a little bit of everything. Hope you enjoy this post!

So, that’s my thought process. If you haven’t explored the wonderful world of Garnier, you must check these awesome products yourself.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope to see you guys again on the next one. Bye!
