Review: Aveeno Positively Radiant Moisterizer with SPF 15

6 Apr

Hello everyone! A skincare review for you today, I just finished this product today and well here are my thoughts on it.

Review: I’m going to be honest and say that I absolutely hated hated this moisterizer. It didn’t feel like a moisterizer and it had weird sparkly bits in it. What I guess is good about it is that it does have SPF 15 (a bit low but perfect for winter time) it does sink in easily into the skin and there is no residue leftover. The pump mechanism on the bottle is really nice as it has a locking mechanism (perfect for travel). As stated before I really didn’t like this moisterizer even though I have oily skin I didn’t feel that it was moisterizing enough. And for the weird glittery bits in this well it’s small but still visible so when I catch my skin in the light sometimes I see glitter on my face. The glittery bits didn’t help with my oily skin as it made it look even more oily.

Cost: $19.99CDN @ any drugstore

Would I recommend this product? I would for those who have great normal skin who wants to give it a boost but for those with combination/oily skin stay away from this moisterizer.

Review: Shiseido Sun Compact Powder Foundation SPF35

18 Mar

Hello everyone! It’s almost summertime to time to bring out the sun protection and summery makeup!

Review: Shiseido has come up with something really great for those who hate putting on sunscreen in the mornings (those people being me). This is basically a powder foundation with SPF 35 and it does have decent coverage and is soft and easy to apply. The shade that I got was SP30 and the downfall with this product is the limited shades (currently 4 shades available)and there are no testers available. Another depressing thing about this is that you have to buy the case seperately and in flash photography your face is ghostly white (fantastic!). This also does not keep the oilies at bay throughout the day so I still have to blot and such but it does adapt to my skin oilies and sometimes does produce a nice dewy look to my face.

Price: $35CDN for the powder, and a seperate $9CDN for the case

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this product for those days that you forget to put on sunscreen and are not planning to partake in any flash photography.

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.

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.
