Skincare Routine: September 2013

30 Sep

Hello everyone! I have a skincare post that I have been meaning to do for the past little while. As you know I went on Accutane and since that experience is over and done with I’ve been meaning to show you what sort of products that I use to help me get rid of the scars leftover. Well here are the products that I use on a daily basis and would recommend to anyone who is looking for some great basic skincare products. Since I change out a lot of my products I plan on doing another one in a few months time.

IMG_1601

Makeup Removers – MAC Cleanse off Oil (not shown) – This was a new addition when I started using makeup daily but I have always been a firm believer in removing makeup before actually cleansing the skin. I like this product but I’m not really loyal to any cleansing oils so it changes every time I finish a bottle.
Neutrogena Dual Phased Eye Makeup Remover – I love dual-layer eye makeup removers and Neutrogena makes one of my favorites but since discovering the Maybelline Clean Express version I don’t really want to purchase the Neutrogena anymore because of price points. But putting price points aside this sort of products is what I will continue to repurchase.

Cleanser: Spectro Gel for Blemish-prone skin – Definitely one of my favorites to use the gel formulation is wonderful and gentle on my skin. I’ve been using this cleanser for about 5 years now and it’s always a staple in my skincare routine.

Serum: Naruko Raw Job’s Tear Whitening Serum – I have been using Naruko serums on and off for the last 3 years and they make my favorite serums. The texture of these are wonderful and absorb well into the skin I always have one on hand because they are just that awesome!

Moisturizer: Bare Minerals Purely Nourishing Moisturizer for Combination Skin – When I was on Accutane I actually used the Dry skin version of this moisturizer and really like it but I’m not really a big fan of this one. The earthy soil like fragrance really gets to me everytime I use it so when this is done I won’t be repurchasing.
Naruko Raw Job’s Tear Night Gelly – This is technically a night cream for me but in gel format which is really cool and it’s really cooling at night as well. I do notice my skin looks a little brighter when I use this but the effect doesn’t last so in the morning I look not so bright.

Eye Cream: Kiehl’s Creamy Eye treatment with Avocado – This has replaced my usual favorite Clinique All About Eyes Rich and it is a bit cheaper considering the amounts that I get in a little jar. I really like the way this feels on my eye area and despite it’s $56CDN price tag I am willing to repurchase it when I run out.

Sunscreen: Biore SPF 50+ Sunscreen – I have to say that I exclusively purchase Asian sunscreens because they last longer, don’t have that weird sunscreen scent, better packaging, and better textures. But out of all the Asian sunscreens that I have tried Biore is one of my favorites and I have purchased many of their products. SPF is important even in the winter!

Extra: Origins Super Spot Remover – One of my favorite spot treatments it’s so satisfying to see that a large zit has been reduced to almost nothing the next day!
Rocky Mountain Soap Company Cherry Lip Butter – This has always been a staple in my skincare I use it at night to ensure that my lips aren’t chapped in the morning. I keep going back to this because this product is just that awesome!
Systane Eye Drops – I usually use the lubricant kind but couldn’t find it so this version is what I have been using. When I was on Accutane my eye doctor was like “OMG your eyes are as dry as the Sahara desert!” and then proceeded to recommend me these brand’s drops and it is really good. I really like them and even though I’m not on Accutane anymore it really like the way it feels and this has stuck in my routine since.

Well that was everything I hope that you enjoyed this post and since it’s the end of the month there are some more update posts on the way.

Rocky Holiday

10 Nov

Hello everyone! I just went window shopping today to get an idea of what to get and stuff like that. I came across Rocky Mountain Soap company and this year they have released a limited edition Holiday set. I have reviewed Rocky Mountain Soap Company’s Lip Butter and that is probably all that I will pick up from the Holiday collection.

The two new flavours are… Spicy Mandarin and Vanilla Candy Cane. ^_^ Totally picking up candy cane but not so sure about Spicy Mandarin. These pictures are probably all that I can provide for you…

 

So if you want more information please visit your local Rocky Mountain Soap company store or you can order online @ http://www.rockymountainsoapcompany.com/.

Review: Rocky Mountain Soap Company – Green Apple Lip Butter

18 Mar

I question why I review products with either long company names or long product names themselves…. everything is slowly becoming routine for these review. ^_^

Anyways, the picture:

Review: Rocky Mountain Soap Company is a 100% Canadian and Natural Company. They have many items all which are natural they are like the cheaper version of LUSH. ^_^I really like the store when I walk in it’s so homely and really does feel like nature has come out to greet you. Now this specific product has many different flavors; green apple, apricot, berry, coconut, peppermint, and summer lemonade. I personally like green apple but the other flavors smell really nice… except coconut because I’m allergic to coconuts. But putting my allergies aside this is a really nice lip butter. I use this at night to really moisterize my lips and in the morning any cracks or dry spots are gone by the next day. The reason why I don’t use this during the day is that it doesn’t have SPF which is ok I don’t mind but being a lip butter, this and Canadianweather don’t go so well together. You can get this product online as well as in stores but since Rocky Mountain Soap company is pretty small there aren’t that many stores but if you do want to visit a store you can check out their website for that information.

Website: http://www.rockymountainsoap.com/

Cost: $3.99CDN

Would I recommend this product? I totally would recommend this product! This lip butter is going to be still one of my favourites 20 years down the road.

Spring is here!

18 Feb

I took a bunch of photos today… well I don’t know if it’s considered a lot but it a lot to me?? Either way here they are…

The stairs that I had to climb this morning… x8 = 94 stairs (yes that is exact) and a common sight that we all know and see everywhere. Anyone want to guess?

     

Yes. there were dandelions on the ground… taped… darn we can’t get rid of them so easily.

Since it’s spring what is spring preparation without a little Spring cleaning? So in order for me to do that I ended up going to get some organizational items and ended up with so much more.

 So the stuff that I bought as you can tell is a panda garbage can, razors, soap from Rocky Mountain Soap Company, Clay mask from Botanics, a kid-proof lighter, Oh Henry!, 2 pepperoni sticks, EOS shaving lotion, organizational holders, Got2B Guardian Angel Heat Protectorant, Botanics Skin Brightening Cleanser, and a PC Blue Menu Blueberry and Acai Smoothie. Yup, lots of stuff. I’m going to do a review on the Smoothie later when I drink it with the rest of my family. ^_^

That is basically it for today… going to do a bunch more work mainly Chemistry and watching Youtube videos but yeah, until next time.

Project R

8 Feb

A new project loosely based on Project 10 pan by lollipop25? I believe it was her anyways  it is a products reduction for me. Project R… and here are the products that I plan to finish:

 These ones are self-explanatory… I personally don’t reach for these colors a lot but I would love to repurchase a full size of cranberry which is pretty good. ^_^ Blackberry is too dark for an everyday look and everyone raves about Kitten but I don’t like the strong vanilla scent that comes with this lipgloss. As you can tell I’m almost done blackberry which is positive and I have used up a lot of Kitten which is also positive. I am on the way to finishing these ones though I wouldn’t mind keeping cranberry for special occasions… sadly the lifespan of these lipglosses is only a year after opening the packaging. Ah well must finish quickly and the best as I can they were expensive. >.< $38CDN for a set of 8.

 Here are the product names

1. Covergirl Wetslicks Lipgloss in Clear Radiance –  Just regular clear lipgloss… this was bought with a coupon same goes for the Amazemint one too… I use this for tutorials and stuff.

2. Covergirl Amazemint Wetslicks Lipgloss in Slaphappy – Bought with the clear lipgloss it’s pretty good but I don’t wear gloss that often everyday therefore I must try to finish it up as best as I can. I would not repurchase this one… not as good as I expected.

3. Covergirl Fresh Complexion Concealer in Light-medium(?) – I don’t remember the shade because it fell off for some odd reason but this one is a pretty good concealer just not my shade. It’s a little too pink I believe for my skin tone but I still use it to correct my blemishs. I think I’m 3/4 done it.

4. Wet ‘n’ Wild Megalash Mascara – A really clumping mascara I would not repurchase but it does the job of keeping my lashes curled.

5. Covergirl Wetslicks Fruits Spritzers in Guava (yum)  – This was a yummy flavor but I don’t find myself reaching for it very often… but still pretty yummy.

6. Nivea Lip Care Caregloss and Shine – Bought about 3-4 years ago and I know I should throw it out but I really liked this gloss back then. I like it because it actually moisterizes the lips and gives it a gloss sheen as well. Not bad for a lip balm but for me I don’t like the stickiness of it.

7. N.Y.C. Lipstick in Petal – Bought for everyday but a little too sheer and light on me. But I still use it for practicing and designing looks.

8. N.Y.C. Lipstick in Blossom – Bought specifically for a tutorial coming up soon. I still haven’t mastered the techniques for this look yet but it will come out soon!

10. Rocky Mountain Soap Company Green Apple Lip Butter – just finished this product yesterday I had this one for over 2 years and the smell was gone but the moisterizingness of it was still in it. I use it every night as a nightly moisterizer good stuff! I’ve already repurchased a replacement.

And as you can tell I can’t count properly…. yeah… positive… but anyways these are the things that I would like to finish. Anyways, these are the products that I have included… I forgot to take a photo of the face products that I would like to use up but that can wait until another beauty related update. After I finish the products I know that I probably won’t be buying anymore glosses and just focus on stuff that I would wear everyday. Well, we’ll see how the project goes on and I hope to get everything done to the best of my abilities!
