Clarisonic Refreshing Gel Cleanser Review

Wednesday, March 30, 2011
Purchase: Aproximately $25 @ ESkincare Store + 20% off

I received a sample of this when I purchased my Clarisonic just over a month ago. Since I've been using this cleanser my face has broken out. I've used it for about a month and now have a few blemishes on my skin so it definitely did not help with that. The smell of it was kind of funny too (although others might like the scent). Therefore, I do not recommend this product. I am excited to try out a different product with my Clarisonic Brush and I hope that it will work a bit better for me! After I have used it for about 3 months I am going to do a review on the Clarisonic, but I feel I need to wait a bit to be able to really see if it works. Another interesting thing about this cleanser is that it has some purple sheen to it when you put it on your hand but I never noticed it on my face at all so I didn't mind the extra sheen. I just thought it was interesting that there was a 'glimmer' in the product even though it's for oily skin which DOES NOT need glimmer!

Clinique High Impact Mascara Review

Friday, March 25, 2011

Purchase: Aprox $16 @ Sephora 
Volumizing effect: 9/10
Separating: 8/10
Lengthening: 8/10

I have a new favourite mascara! This stuff is pretty great. It makes my lashes look nice and full without globbing on a bunch of thick mascara. When I'm wearing this product, I find that my lashes still feel light and natural and I love the way my lashes fan out with this particular mascara brush. I highly recommend this product to EVERYONE! It really makes my lashes stand out and even holds the curl from my eye curler instead of weighing my lashes down so that they are straight again. I dare you to try this one :)

Salon J Review

Thursday, March 24, 2011
Hey everyone!
I wanted to share with you my first experience at Salon J in Sidney BC Vancouver Island. Salon J offers hair services (cut/colour) and aesthetic services (waxing, massage, makeup application, manicures, pedicures and facials). So here it goes:
A friend of mine named Jess Bodrug works at Salon J and told me to come in and check it out. My first impression of the salon was that it was in one of the most beautiful parts of town! Right near the water! However, the parking situation is pretty terrible in Sidney and the maximum allotted time is 2 hours so make sure to park in a parkade (if there are any) or be prepared to move your car if you are getting a cut and colour like I did. Anyways, the salon was huge! There were two separate areas where people could get their hair cut, an aesthetician area and a makeup counter. Also, I immediately noticed that they sold and used both Aveda and Bumble and Bumble products which are two of the most sought after brands in Victoria (at least, in my opinion). The colouring experience was great, Jess applied a gentle Aveda colouring product on my roots and it didn't burn at all! She was also sure to tone out both my ends and roots as to get rid of the brassiness that had acquired since my last colour. After, she gave me a fantastic hair cut (which was much needed since my hair is so long and slightly damaged). I absolutely love the cut! My hair feels a lot lighter and I can see the defined layers.

All in all my experience at Salon J was amazing and Jess was very accommodating and friendly. She even remembered that I had mentioned my sensitive scalp a few weeks prior and made sure to use products that wouldn't irritate it.
I would absolutely recommend going to Salon J in Sidney and getting your hair cut and/or dyed by Jess Bodrug! Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure:

La Roche Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel 150mL

Tuesday, March 22, 2011
Purchase: $16 @ London Drugs

I received this as a bonus item in with another La Roche Posay item and I absolutely love it! Luckily, I bought two items which included this as a bonus so, even though I'm almost finished, I have another one to use! During the time I used this product I only had one blemish! For those of you that are aware, I have very blemish prone skin and I recently have stopped taking my Acne medication and WOW this stuff really worked! I used it only in the night time in order to make sure my face didn't become dried out because of the harsh winter air. I would definitely recommend this product!

A little bit about the product:

This facial cleanser is made especially for oily and easily irritated skin. It is PH balanced and soap-free so it will not be too harsh on sensitive skin types. I think it does a great job and is very gentle yet effective on oily skin. It is also a good price considering some of the more high-end products out there. And even more importantly, it does not dry your skin out because it is for sensitive skin so even people with normal to dry skin can use it!

Revlon matte Rose Rapture 001 Review

Tuesday, March 15, 2011
If you are looking for a subtle brush of colour then this is for you! I personally feel like I have to layer this stuff on to get any pigment on my face. Also, you should know, that I've just recently started wearing blush so it's not like I'm a blush-o-holic and like a lot of colour, it's just that this is not very pigmented. However, it does give you a VERY soft glow if you are just getting on the blush train!

Also, it hasn't lasted me very long because it takes so many applications to get the desired coloured look. I also have very pale skin so I thought this would stick out a lot more but it really didn't.

Also, don't forget to apply for my MAC and much more give away HERE!

Biotherm Skin Ergetic Gel Creme Review

Sunday, March 13, 2011
I received a sample of this in the mail and I just LOVE the smell! As you may know, I have very oily skin and this moisturizer was too rich for me. However, if you have dry skin I think this moisturizer would work great! It kept my skin rich with moisture all day and wow it smells so good!! They also have a night creme that I will review later but I definitely recommend trying a sample of this at your local Biotherm counter.

Have a great day! And don't forget to enter my current contest

Clinique High Lengths Mascara Review

Purchase: Aprox $16 @ Sephora
Lengthening: 8 out of 10

I received this as a sample from a clinique bonus pack. Yes, this does sound pretty good from the rating above. However, I hated this mascara! I only used it a few times and it was very clumpy. It also left my lashes super crispy all day long and I hated the feeling of the heaviness on my lashes throughout the day. I didn't find this smudged very much but it definitely is not worth the money if you ask me!

Philosophy Purity Made Simple Review

Monday, March 7, 2011
Purchase: $13-48 @ Sephora
According to the package this cleanser is formulate as follows:

Philosophy Purity Made Simple is a ph-balanced formula that rapidly dissolves dirt and makeup while deep cleaning pores. The best-selling cleanser contains infusions of sage, chamomile, and carrot.

The smell of this is very potent. I kind of liked it but if you go for that 'hippy'-ish smell then I think you will LOVE it! I only had a sample and used it three times but, using my clarisonic, I was able to get all the makeup and dirt off my face! There was just a TINY bit of dirt left on my sponge when I used my toner after washing with the Purity Face wash. I would definitely give this stuff a try. Also, it comes in 4 different sizes so for about $13 you can get a 3oz and try it out for yourself!

Also, I have acne prone skin and I had no blemishes after I used this (I finished using it about 3 days ago and I used it for 3 days).
I'd say this is worth picking up at your local Sephora if you are looking for a new facial cleanser!

Do you love free stuff? I sure do!

Marcelle Rouge Xpression Guest post by Christine @ I Colour Outside the Lines

Tuesday, March 1, 2011
I am so excited to present to you my first Guest post by Christine @ I Colour Outside the Lines!

Marcelle Rouge Xpression

Marcelle is a brand that I haven't exposed myself to all that much. For the most part it is because the colours are typically quite safe and I am usually in the market for something bright. However the other day I stopped by my local SHoppers Drug MArt and noticed they had a new lipstick display. I picked up 2 shades that are absolutely beautiful and I believe there are a few more that I may go back and purchase.

I chose 804 Paris Rose which is a light (but bright) pink coral and 855 Cleopatra which is a medium violet. Both colours are extremely pigmented and creamy and feel absolutely wonderful on the lips. I have tried them out only once but I can say they apply opague in one swipe. II do plan on going back to the Marcelle section and checking out what other goodies they have to offer this season.

These are currently on sale at Shoppers Drug Mart for about $10 each and if you watch the fliers they often go on sale.

Congratulations to....

Mayana! I generated a random number at random.org and number 7 popped up which was Mayana's name! Congrats!! She won:

Stay tuned for the next give away! I am so excited for this next one it's going to be AWESOME!
