Night serum

Review | Estée Lauder Night Serum

Woohooooooooo!!!! I have finally received the gift that i won from a contest made by a very nice blogger Beautyowls. Check out her blog. She has some great reviews!

When i opened the package, there was a really nice fragrance to it. The serum box was wrapped in a golden silk paper. The bottle is really nice with a metallic red colour promoted for the Chinese New Year event.

Product claims:

Reveal a smoother, more radiant, younger look. Wake up to more beautiful skin every day.

Lines and wrinkles look significantly reduced. More than 75% of women felt their skin looked more youthful in just 4 weeks. Skin feels smoother, hydrated, stronger. 82% felt their skin was immediately hydrated.

The use of the eye dropper tool is really easy and i can simply apply the serum onto my skin. The eye dropper makes a big difference in how you use it and makes it more hygienic. Simply for that detail, i’m loving it.

As for the serum itself, the effect onto the skin matches their claims. The fragrance is not too pronounced compared to other serums which is good for me. It has a fluid texture which reminded me of a snail gel that i have. It has a slight yellowish transparent colour. It absorbs quickly and makes the skin automatically soft but not slick. It made my skin firm and made it feel like as if my skin was bit thicker.

After a full face application and a couple of minutes later, my face did feel freshen up and smooth.  I also noticed that the very dry areas of my face were still dry. It was written that you need to apply it before your daily care. Thus why the very dry areas was not fully hydrated. Although, I’m happy that it didn’t make any parts of my skin red and it didn’t make it tingle which is big plus for me since I have very sensitive skin. In the morning, my skin looked healthy, shiny and soft. It felt better than having my daily night cream only.

I will still definitely use it again to see how my skin turns out after a couple of weeks. Although i would probably not purchased it simply because it is definitely an expensive night serum(118$ CAD), maybe during some big sales event.

That’s if for my review 😛 Hope it helped you.

Thanks for reading and take care 🙂

Free gift set from L’Occitane review

Hello Beauties 😛

How have you all been? I’m good, I’ve been pretty busy lately. Now that i’m more free, i can talk about my free gift set from L’Occitane that i got without any prior purchase. It came with a 20% Shea butter hand cream, a divine cream and a cleansing oil. The value of this gift set was 20$. A pretty good gift. I already used my hand cream which works very well. It’s oily and a bit sticky and has a thick texture. It takes a while for it to absorb well. It’s a good cream for dry hands, although you have to rub it very well in the corners and cracks of the hand due to its texture.

It’s not my favourite cream by choice, my etude house collagen Oh Happy Day cream works even better. The texture is more fluid and leaves my hands moisturized without a greasy feeling. It takes me less time to apply it all over my hands.

The cleansing oil did it’s job very well by removing my makeup. The cleansing oil has a dry feel, so it’s not sticky on the skin. It also has a light lavender fragrance.

The Divine Cream has a very strong aroma, smells kinda like ground cherries(physalis) which is lovely but a bit overwhelming. The cream is smooth yet a bit mushy and is light yellow. It gives a funny texture on the skin. While rubbing it with my fingers after a while, i felt like i was rubbing a thin layer of wet flour on my face. The cream felt grainy and small rounded pieces of cream was stuck onto my face and fingers(which could mean that the cream was getting off my face, therefore it’s not getting absorbed into the skin. My face was slick before the application of the cream, after my face was rather texturized. I was definitely not pleased with the result and the texture itself. I applied it at night, the next day my face was not really better and was a bit dry.

Overall, this free gift set was pretty good except for the Divine Cream. At least i’ve tried it, and now i know that i won’t be purchasing it at it’s full size and regular price. For the hand cream, I can find something as equally as good and cheaper.  Same thing goes for the cleansing oil.

That’s it for my little review 🙂 Thanks for reading and have a nice day 😛

Have you tried these products before? What did you think of them?

 

 

Tarte skincare travel set review

Hi makeup lovers!

Makeup is important yes so is the skin. I’ve come across this great Tarte skincare travel set that i absolutely love. The Rainforest of the Sea Deep Dive Cleansing Gel is really great. It doesn’t leave my skin dry after wash. Love the citrus fragrance. It is obviously not for make-up removal nor does it exfoliate. It only washes the face for a regular daily use.

The Maracuja Oil, is still up for trial for me since i find it heavy for the face. Once you apply it, even a thin layer, you feel like you have this weight of the oil on your face it’s rather bothersome. But to rejuvenate the skin it’s great, of course not to be used on a daily basis i think. It would feel like it would block my pores. If i feel there’s too much on on my face, i would simply remove some with a tissue paper.

The Rainforest of the Sea Marine Boosting Mist is awesome. I spray it directly after i have finished washing and dried my face. Therefore before putting my daily cream on. It makes my face firm, slick and gives a natural shine to it. It’s also a good to use before applying the primer to make the makeup stay longer.

The Amazonian clay highlighter is great to brighten parts of the face. It gives a little beige chrome looking to the applied part of the face. The texture is soft but it stays well on the skin. To put after you applied your foundation.

The Cabana Boy lipstick is soooo smooth. I love it. I thought the colour would like a beige. Turns out it’s like a beige purple. It’s perfect for a nude looking makeup with a bit of edge or where the most attention of the makeup is drawn to the eyes. It’s different from i ever had. The texture of the lipstick is reallly SOFT. I’m really surprised and impressed by it.

I’m really happy that i got this travel set. I would definitely use it a lot. Have any of you bought this travel set? What did it do to you? Do you love it as much as i do? Please share you comments and critiques. I would be happy to hear about it 🙂
