I knew I was getting the Hydro boost sunscreen to try but these wipes were a surprise. #gotitfree These wipes were dryer than I expected (which I found great because it is less messy than conventional wipes that are all soapy and drippy). It does a great job removing face (i.e. foundation, blush, etc.) makeup and it required a bit more time and effort to remove eye make up (esp the mascara). If you have the patience, these wipes are great. They are also great for travel because they are not considered "liquids"/"aerosols" which means you can just toss them in your bag without bringing extra things like cotton pads. I took off one star because this product is still "chemically produced" and my preference is to use more natural/organic products or chemicals that are scientifically proven to be beneficial.
I have thin/flat hair (without products) and got a free sample of this try out. It promises to be an ultimate body-boosting leave in elixir for thicker, fuller looking hair. After using it for a week, I didn't see or feel any different from just using my regular hair products.
I received these bars through the PRC for free in exchange for an honest review. Overall I thought these bars were amazing. It is a little on the harder side compared to other bars I've had. This ties in with the comment I made on the other thread that it's a little thicker than I would like (because it is harder, the thickness makes it hard to bite). But i absolutely love this flavour (equally with the cashew one). Love the protein, love the plant based ingredients, and nutritional value it brings.
Thanks SocialNature for sending me this facial scrub ! I currently just use the Biore Baking Soda to exfoliate and it is okay. Nothing life changing, but it is cheap and gentle enough to use every day. This Sukin scrub was very surprising to me because the beads were much bigger than I thought. You don't need a lot of product and a little DOES go a long way. Love love love that it is a carbon neutral product (i work for a sustainability consultancy) ! If you're looking for a deal on Sukin products in Canada, Winners usually carries their products in their beauty section.
THANK YOU PRC (Product Review Club) FOR SENDING ME THESE BARS TO TRY - they are seriously to die for.
I work out on the regular and am always looking to get protein in my body ASAP - in a delicious way. This is perfect for that. Even as a snack, this is very tasty. If I could complain about one thing, it would be the thickness of the bar - it is a few mm thicker than what I'm used to and it is ever so slightly uncomfortable to be opening my mouth this wide. But otherwise - this bar is perfect.
I am actually writing for Dark Brown #3. I think they rebranded/repackaged Superior Preference recently - unclear whether formula has changed.
Application: Super easy and straightforward. The mixture was a good consistency (not too thick or thin) so it wasn't too messy to apply into my hair. I have shoulder length hair and there was more than enough product to cover my head. The only thing I hated was the toxic smell. I've permed my hair (in salons) and coloured my hair (at home and in salons) and I felt this product was extra toxic. I am not happy about the fact that this has ammonia in it - with all the technology and advanced science out there, there is no need for such harsh chemicals. Washing out:As I was washing the product out, I actually felt my hair become COARSER. I was slightly traumatized. BUT once I put on the conditioner, my hair was soooooo silky smooth. I am very very impressed with the conditioner and this is definitely a staple in this hair dye kit. Color:I won't be able to comment too much on this because my hair was pretty similar in colour to the one I received (dark brown #3). I can tell it darkened my hair and it looks nice and natural. I received this for free in exchange for an honest review. Thank you so much for the personalized note - it really put a smile on my face !
The first time I tried this cream, I tried to integrate it with my existing routine and just simply swap out the moisturizer that I used. That was a complete disaster because this cream does not absorb too well if it is not in direct contact with the skin (in my experience). My usual routine consists of layering mists and serums before the moisturizer and I guess the combination does not work well with this cream. It left my skin feeling sticky and the product was just sitting on top. Using this cream alone, it absorbs much better into the skin. I can't speak too much to the lifting / anti-wrinkle properties because I personally don't struggle with it too much and I haven't seen a difference after a week. I personally don't love the scent of this cream - it is better than the overly chemically fragranced, but this reminds me of cheap non-branded products. Compared to other drugstore brands, this product is just not packaged and presented very luxuriously. (I received this product for free in exchange for an honest review).
I mentioned in my other review on the Blemish Clearing Serum that Juice Beauty uses amazing ingredients. Unlike a lot of other products that show water as its first ingredient (meaning this is the ingredient they have the highest percentage in), this one lists Organic Juices Of Pyrus Malus which means you know you are getting a concentrated / powerful dose of good ingredients !! As a moisturizer, this product is just works average at best. It's moisturizing for the skin, easy to apply, absorbs nicely into the skin, etc, but it is not HG. If I didn't already have a million different moisturizers at home and needed to buy one, I would consider this one to purchase though because it is a great price for the quality of ingredients.
I was recently introduced to this beauty line 'Juice Beauty' at Sephora. One of the things I love about this line is all the good organic ingredients that it uses. Unlike a lot of other products that show water as its first ingredient (meaning this is the ingredient they have the highest percentage in), this one lists Organic Juices Of Vitis Vinifera which means you know you are getting a concentrated / powerful dose of good ingredients !! I am not crazy acne prone but I do get the random breakout here and there. This serum is not too messy to apply and absorbs quickly. My face rarely broke out after this.
Ugh I sometimes hate it when companies send you samples of products that you've never heard before because you end up falling in love and buying it ! I originally bought the Boy Brow from Glossier and they sent me a sample of this cleanser. I was immediately hooked because it works as a nice AM cleanser and can work as a PM cleanser to take off make up. AM = wet routine. You dampen your face and then massage the product on your face. Feels amazing and when you wash it off, no tightness - just a clean feeling of plumped hydrated skin. PM = dry routine. I find that it does work to remove all make up, but because of the thicker consistency, it can be rough to rub it on your eyes to remove mascara. So I normally just remove 90% of my eye make up with a micellar water (I use Bioderma - the blue hydrating one) and then continue the dry routine by massaging the product onto my face. When you rinse, you'll see your make up wash off and it's very satisfying. And again - leaving your skin feeling clean and hydrated ! Purchased 2 bottles after I received the sample. Tip - if you google Glossier rep and "shop with a rep", you can get 20% off and free shipping if you spend over $40 !!
