Hello Everyone,

We are only 5 followers away from my next giveaway.

I was sent these products by GlamSense and Vichy for a honest review.

 

DSCN1060

$19.95 for 200 ml

Thoughts:

I found this cleanser was easy to splash off with water without the use of wetting a wash cloth. I have been using this product for 2 weeks and barely made a dent in it. Which is quite impress for someone one like me who washing my face morning and night. Since I go through a bottle this size in a month and half.  I notice I didn’t have a high amount of break out that normally do while using another cleanser.

I will be buying this one as soon as I finish this one.

5 stars out of 5 stars.

 

 

DSCN1064

$29.95 for 50 ml.

Did make my pores smaller?

No it didn’t.

Did it prevent pimples?

It might have but I think it was mainly due to the cleanser.

 

I really didn’t like this product at all it irritate my skin even though it was for sensitive skin. It also didn’t absorb in my skin and it would ball up after 5 mins of putting it on.

I will not be buying this product. I found that it was not worth the money.

1 star out of 5 stars.

About the product:

It is made out of Cedar nut oil and resin.  It is a 60 ml tube and it cost me 12 dollars.  It should also be noted that it is a screw top tube and It is cruelty free product as well.

If you interested to try any of the products made with ceder nut oil. Then check out the store here Arnalia Pristine Beauty

Any links I post to my blogs are ones that I don’t make money off  unless stated.

 

My thoughts:

The Taste: I should let you guys first know that is taste like sawdust. So if certain tastes or scents bother you. This product might not be for you.

How I use it:

I use this product at night.

Did the product work for me:

Yes the product works amazingly  well for me. Three years I broke my tooth on a tasty creamsicle.  Which lead to me having to get a root canal and a crown put in.  This year I notice that my crown was becoming sensitive to cold water which is common with crowns. All  different sensitive toothpastes was not working to relive my issue.  So the day of going to my local farmer’s market was the day I decide change over to a natural toothpaste.  After three uses with this toothpaste  I notice a big difference in my tooth and gum health.  My crown became to the point where cold water didn’t bother it.

I would highly recommend this toothpaste to people who suffer from crown sensitivity. It works wonder. I will be picking up another tube.

The only issue is a would rather it was a flip up cap then a screw top cap.

I give this product 4 stars out of 5 stars.

dscn0585

200 ml for $22 dollars or you can find it on sale for 10 dollars.

 

My thoughts:

I love this scrub it reminds me of a home made raspberry jam that my grandmother use to make.  The only down side is that it had seeds instead of sugar for the scrub.  Which can be a love or hate depending on the person.

I personal love this product it is one of my top 5 can’t leave without along side Lush Cosmetics Rose Jam Shower Gel.

 

I give this product 5 out of 5 stars.

Product Review: The Body Shop Early-Harvest Raspberry Shower Gel

Hello Everyone And New Followers,

I first like to congrats Lisa From Canada for winning my the body shop gift set giveaway. We are only 24 followers away from the next giveaway or when I got to Imats in October. So really whatever comes first.

 

dscn0595

The Body Shop Early-Harvest Raspberry Shower Gel in 250 ml or 8.4 fl oz. Retails for $10.00 and can only be bought on the website.

 

My thoughts:

I love the early-harvest raspberry scrubs which smells exactly like sweet raspberry jam. However the early-harvest raspberry shower gel smell like really sour raspberry candies.

It foam up nicely and the new bottle was easy to use.

What really put me off was the scent.

 

I give this product 2 stars out of 5 stars. Mainly due to scent.

Product Review: Freeman Pink Grapefruit Exfoliating Scrub

Hello Everyone,

 

DSCN0546

6 fl oz or 175ml retails for $4.97 at Walmart Canada.

 

What I didn’t like about this product:

The sugar was super fine size and there was not enough of sugar to really make it a scrub. The scent smell nothing like pink grapefruit. It was more like a super sweet strawberries scent.

 

What I liked about this product:

To be honest I like nothing about this product at all. It was a over all meh for me.

 

I give this product 1 star out of 5 stars

Product Review: Cougar By Paula Dunne Marine Collagen Eye Serum And Snow Algae Facial Serum

Hello Everyone,

I was sent these products for a honest review.

 

DSCN0626

This is what the products looked like when it came in the box.

Cougar Marine Collagen Eye Serum 15.99 Pounds= 23.60 Canadian for  15 ml

About the product(Cougar Beauty Website):

The delicate eye area needs extra care and with that in mind, we have developed a innovative eye gel that is guaranteed to leave eyes feeling, awake, toned, smooth and wrinkle free.

This wonderful cooling, anti-aging eye gel calms the look of dark circles, tones and refreshes in one go. With mild Aloe Vera eye gel, Vitamin E, Marine Collagen, Cucumber, Blueberry, Apple, Passionfruit and Green Tea extracts, and natural avocado oil to assist and control the signs of aging around the eyes.

With added Hyaluronic to also plump the under-eye. Hyaluronic is a substance occurring naturally in the human body that can bind a large amount of moisture (up to 1000 times its own weight). Water and Hyaluron are the two most important substances filling our connective tissue.

 

My Thoughts:

Eyes feeling awake, toned, smooth and wrinkle free?

From my experience my eyes did look brighter and more wide awake. As for toned and smooth I pretty much sure this is true for me. As far as wrinkle free I saw no crows feet but did see under the eye winkles where still there. I end up using my normal eye cream on top of the serum and it too care of that issue.

Dark Circles?

Actually this product took away one of my big eye issues which as you all know is dark circles.  Within about 4 to 5 days of using this product my dark circle have been gone after using this product morning and night.

I would also like to note that it has a most amazing scent that is neither floral or fruity. So anyone with scent issues will love this product.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars.

 

Will I repurchase? Yes I will.

Cougar Platinum Snow Algae  Facial Serum 22.99 pounds= 37.82 Canadian for 50ml

About the product(Cougar Beauty Website):

Serums are essential in a daily skin care routine. They contain fewer lubricating and thickening agents, like nut or seed oils, which can sometimes leave the skin feeling clogged up and greasy. Facial serums spread a long way; one pump is enough to nourish the whole face.

Facial Serums are made of very small molecules, therefore the skin absorbs them much faster and deeper than ordinary moisturizer. Active ingredients in serums penetrate the skin faster and more effectively.

The main active ingredient in the Snow Algae range is Snow Algae Powder. Snow Algae Powder mimics the effects of calorie restriction and in this way improves the longevity of the skin cells. Consequently, it offers the skin the benefits of a diet without the need to undergo a low-calorie regime.

This innovative anti-aging active ingredient is based on the extract of a unique extremophile algae species that has managed to develop survival strategies that enable it to grow on glaciers and in eternal snow. At the cellular level, Snow Algae Powder protects and activates two key factors of the calorie restriction pathway: the Klotho longevity gene and the AMPK energy sensor that together lead to improved cellular defenses, oxidative stress resistance, cell detoxification and repair.

The results in the skin are the production of collagen starting again and a rejuvenation of the dermal epidermal junction. Consequently, the skin barrier is reinforced while the skin appears fresher and detoxified as age spots are less visible.

My thoughts:

I found that is did not clog my pores and it did make my skin feel fantastic each time I used it.

Also the scent was fine and didn’t make me ill.

Would I rebuy this serum?

I am still debating this one. Do I think it is a fantastic serum? At this point it’s not the greatest but its not bad. I think it would work better with the whole snow algae line. So I think I will rebuy it to give it another shot.

So as this moment I am giving it a 3 stars out of 5 stars.

I will update the review after finishing the product it the rating will be higher.

If you are living in Canada and this brand interests you shipping is 12.50 pounds or 20.58 Canada.

Product Review: Lush Cosmetics Igloo Soap

Hello Everyone,

 

I hope you have a fantastic weekend.

 

dscn0528

About the product:

Pop into one of our shops to marvel at our fabulous multicolored Igloo built entirely out of soap! Dusted with sodium bicarbonate, these heavenly rose and lemon-scented soap bricks look like giant pieces of Turkish delight. Get a lather going for clean, subtly scented skin and to enjoy a bright, uplifting perfume.

It’s Vegan and Cruelty Free.

My thoughts:

I don’t really smell a rose scent. I get mostly lemon. I do really enjoy this soap. I hear this soap is the soap version of rose jam shower gel. I can’t really see that since my soap as I said smells more like a lemon cough drop.  I also found it lather nicely to its last use.

 

I love it and would rebuy it.

I give this soap 4 stars out of 5 stars.

Product Review: Secret Jewels Winter Wonderland

Hello Everyone,

As you know I bought and feature it in my beauty gift guide last year for Christmas. So today I thought I would do a review.

dscn0267

The soap scent is spiced vanilla.

dscn0304

The jewellery was a pair of Diamond shaped earrings. I don’t know the value of the earrings.

My thoughts:

The soap foam and was wonderful to use at the beginning. After I got to the jewellery the soap lost all its moisture and started to feel drying. The soap started to crack and peel off in layers.

I won’t be buying this soap again. I also felt the jewellery was underwhelming

I give this product 1 star out of 5 stars.

Product Review: RaspberryMint Anti Aging Face Serum And Raspberry Makeup Remover

Hello Everyone and New followers,

My name is Samantha. My two fave. flavors in the world are anything raspberry and mint.  I post on Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays.

I was sent these products for a honest review by the company.

dscn0317

Raspberry Makeup Remover

About the product(RaspberryMint Website):

Ingredients list: organic olive oil (extra virgin), natural flavour oil
Why we chose particular ingredient:

Organic olive oil (extra virgin) – was chosen not only because it is organic!! but because olive oil does beautiful and hard work as it softens the skin, especially when used as a makeup remover on a consistent basis.
How to use:

Drop 3-5 drops of this make-up remover onto a cotton face pad and use it to gently remove your eye and face make-up. The key is to do it delicately (but not toooo delicately) to remove your make-up without pulling the delicate skin around your eyes.

Size: 30ml

We are pleased to disclose that all of our products are formulated without artificial colours, fragrances, or synthetic preservatives. raspberrymint’ products are NOT tested on animals and are cruelty-free.

raspberrymint’ products are Proudly Made in Canada.

Our Price: $18.00

My Thoughts:

I found this product left a oil residue after using it. After a hour it would go away. The product did smell like raspberries which was a big selling point for me. However it had issues when it came to removing my mascara. I found it worked great on drug store mascara but when it came to some of my high end mascara it would not be able to remove it.  Also the nozzle would stop spraying after a while and I would have to clean it out under hot water. I really would love a dropper like in the serum.

I would give this product  3 out of 5 stars. I was not blown away with this product.

Anti- Aging Protective Face Serum

About this product(Raspberrymint website):

This serum contains a unique blend of organic oils and lavender essential oil. It is meant to restore, refine and reduce the signs of aging … revealing your skin’s natural radiance. raspberrymint’s Anti-Aging Protective Face Serum has also been formulated to deliver increased hydration and moisture.

Ingredients list: organic olive oil (extra virgin), coconut oil, organic hemp seed oil, organic argan oil, lavender essential oil

Why we chose this blend of ingredients:

Organic olive oil (extra virgin) – when massaged gently into your face, organic olive oil helps to promote your skin’s elasticity and also helps slow down the aging process as it is rich in antioxidants. Why extra virgin? Because it has the least amount of processing.

Coconut oil – not only helps reduce signs of aging, but also strengthens the skin against cellulite, stretch marks and even works as a natural sunscreen! Organic coconut oil is also full of anti-oxidant vitamin E, making it an excellent addition to our chic anti-aging serum.

Organic hemp seed oil – is a natural moisturizer, improving the overall functioning of the skin while having positive anti-aging effects by improving the composition of epidural lipids (fats in the outermost skin layer). What’s not to love?!

Organic argan oil – is effective against aging as it contains anti-oxidants that benefit skin health by preventing oxidative damage from environmental pollution and UV radiation. Tocopherols and fatty acids such as Linoleic acid are also present in the oil, which combats free radicals and improves skin elasticity.

Lavender essential oil – not only helps heal skin conditions, burns and cuts but also helps our bodies to produce powerful antioxidants (such as glutathione and catalase). We need antioxidants to fight free radical damage (which is damage to parts of cells such as proteins, DNA, and cell membranes). The free radical theory of aging (FRTA) states that organisms age because cells accumulate free radical damage over time. [1] Since our ability to produce antioxidants in the body declines with age, lavender essential oil is an excellent choice for our anti-aging serum to help us age much more gracefully with vibrant skin.

How to use:

 My Thoughts:

I love this product. I have a really bad acne scar which was pitted after a week of use it healed the pitted scar from the acne. Which I was amazed by. The product smells amazing and depending on your skin type a little bit can go a long way. A bonus is it comes with a child safety cap.  The only down side is that the bottle gets a bit sticky over time.

My guide line to using this product.

Oily skin=2 drops

normal skin= 3 drops

Dry skin=4 drops

If you are going to buy any product from this company. I highly recommend the serum. I will be rebuying this product and it will be replacing my old serum.

I give this product 4.5 stars out of 5 stars.
