As someone who has very oily and acne prone skin, it's taken me years to find a moisturizer that doesn't clog my pores but also gives me just the right amount of hydration I need. I first started using moisturizers that were too thick and they broke me out, so I tried other ones but those left my skin dry and flaky. Because this is a gel-based moisturizer, it gives you a good amount of hydration without the heaviness. It also definitely does help to mattify the skin for hours. This is my favourite moisturizer!!
I've been using this toner for several months now and it's made me scared to try other ones as it's perfect for me!! It's worked really well for my sensitive, oily, and acne prone skin. I've noticed a difference in the amount of oil production I have throughout the day. It's an effective toner that doesn't leave your skin feeling dried out and irritated. I highly recommend this!
This has been my holy grail product for the past 6 months now! I've definitely noticed a reduction in my acne and haven't had a bad breakout since I started using it. It pairs well with my Vanity Planet Ultimate Skin Spa System and makes me feel excited about skincare because I know I'm using a product that truly works! The one thing I will say is it's a bit pricier than other drugstore cleansers as it's $17.00 for 100 ml, however I usually wait until there is a sale and then I stock up. The Body Shop is also cruelty free which is always a great thing to support! Overall, I've been highly impressed with this product and will be repurchasing it a long time.
I'm not a person who likes thick, long socks so these are PERFECT for me! I wear them all year round. If it's a bit colder outside, they're thin enough to double up without feeling uncomfortable. These are super great especially because they are SO affordable! Been repurchasing these for years now and will be for a long time.
These leggings are my absolute favourite! Honestly feels like you're wearing nothing because of the way they move with you. I bought them a few years ago when I joined the Rugby team because I needed some good leggings to wear during conditioning practices. They've only now just started to show signs of wear. A great price considering the quality of the product! Will definitely be repurchasing these.
I received complimentary samples of Viva La Juicy from Influenster and Juicy Couture for testing purposes.
I tested the fragrance for a full week and I've now added it to my Christmas wishlist! I think it should be a staple in anyone's fragrance collection.
The biggest thing I was concerned about was the lasting power of the fragrance. If I, as a minimum-wage earning college student, am going to be dishing out $110 for a full size (100 mL), I want it to go a long way. I'm quite happy to report that it does! I've been putting on this perfume around 7:30 AM every day and can still smell it while I'm getting ready for bed at 11 PM. The scent does fade throughout the day, but not enough that I feel the need to reapply. I will mention that it is noticeably longer lasting if you spray it directly onto clothes, rather than skin.
Now, let's talk about the scent itself. I believe it is a beautiful, versatile scent that anyone would love! The featured notes are wild berries, jasmine and vanilla, and I also noticed subtle hints of amber. My favourite thing about this scent is that it's perfect for any occasion. Whether you're going to school or a party with friends, it's a highly wearable scent while not being too overpowering. It's both a playful yet musky scent, which gives off the "highly successful woman who also knows how to party" vibe!
After testing out the fragrance for a full week straight, I was highly impressed and I now know why it became such a cult classic. I truly recommend this product!
Burt's Bees does lip balms really well! They're always long lasting and very moisturizing. However, I prefer the original Beeswax version instead of this one. The Ultra Conditioning lip balm feels really greasy on my lips and it's almost too uncomfortable to wear. Something about the scent also makes me nauseous so I end up not wearing it that much. Wish it worked better for me, but it's okay because I will stick to the original Beeswax one!
Love the bronzer shade in St. Lucia! Not a big fan of the blush though, as. I've found it doesn't really show up that well on my skin. Both of the powders are more chalky than I would like them to be, but you can make them work. They have great pigmentation and are affordable so I would definitely still pick this duo up and try it if you get the chance.
I received the Plum Basics palette as a birthday gift and I love it so much! The shadows are creamy, pigmented, easy to blend and definitely buildable if you want more colour. They also don't crease throughout the day which is a huge bonus. I will definitely be looking into purchasing the other varieties of this palette very soon.
