Reading = Happier self

22 Jul

Hello everyone! Lately I’ve been into reading books… I haven’t been reading lately but now it’s picked up since I got time to leisurely read. So I’ve been reading psychology type books and thought that I would share with you the three books that I picked up the read.

1.

This one is for trying to figure out why some emotions are a repeat from the year before and what sort of effect it has. It’s interesting to read about the different factors that effect our emotions.

2.

Since I am going to be attending business this upcoming school year I thought that I would get a grips of what is going on with the world of consumerism. I mean why do we pay more than $3 for a cup of coffee at Safeway when you can brew your own at home for 50 cents. Baffling stuff!

3.

Yes… I must read about food but this is quite helpful I always find that I eat when I’m depressed or happy and food plays a huge part in my life. Since I eat a lot of food it makes me question if I am overeating and if it really is all worth it. You know from my 20 things before 20 list that I am going to eat at 3 places to try the food (as I always avoid it) so it will be an interesting read. (oh and nice to see why I crave certain foods and not others)

Review: Shiseido Pureness 3-step System

22 Apr

Woohoo, finally a review on these products. The photo of the used products… heh…

Review: A little backdrop in the Shiseido Pureness line, this skincare line is meant for those who have oily and acne-prone skin. I basically fit in that description so I thought that I would try out this starter set before actually buying the full sizes. What is included in this little set is the deep cleansing foam, balancing softener (a.k.a. toner), and the mattifying moisterizer. When I first started using these products I totally saw a difference in my skin, the pores looked smaller, my face was actually mattified, and it felt like the skin was rebalancing and recoverying from using acne cleansers. Things that I disliked was that it made my skin feel really really dry afterwards and the mattifying moisterizer did not have enough moisture or so I felt. Though after I stopped using the cleanser it didn’t feel so dry. The products did really mattify my skin and is great for those who have pretty oily skin but just having one or two of the three products doesn’t do much for your skin. The only thing that I thought was worth it’s money was the mattifying moisterizer which I bought a full size of which was about the same price as the set that I bought. Overall, I think the products are good but I don’t agree with the price tag that goes along with them.

Cost: $40.00 CDN on sale @ Shiseido counter [hooray for January sales]

Would I recommend these products? For those with oily skin yes but I would only recommend the toner and moisterizer. The deep cleansing foam I thought to be too harsh with the exfoliation beads in it and everything.
