  • Gillette Venus Embrace Razor

    This was actually the first razor that I used and it does provide good results. I love how it comes with a shower holder so that you can attach to the walls. The five blades definitely provide a nice close shave. Unfortunately results don't last long and you'd have to shave again every few days. Remember to use shaving cream for a closer shave. Overall for it's very convenient, quick, easy and painless to use.

  • Korres Hydrating Guava Body Butter
    10.0

    Korres Hydrating Guava Body Butter

    Smells Great and Works like a Charm

    This Korres Body Butter Beurre Corporel in Guava is a beautiful extra-moisturizing cream for dry skin, and it really works like a charm. It's lightly fragranced and it's ninety-four point two percent natural. No mineral oil, no petrolatum, no silicons, no parabens, no propylene glycol, no ethanolamines. There are PEG, but no SLES, no ALES, no synthetic dye, a bit of fragrance, no polycyclic musks, yes pH-neutral, yes alcohol, no retinol, no animal by-productsm no animal testing, and it is suitable for vegetarians, there's no wheat, but there are nuts interestingly. And the entire packaging is recyclable which is great for the Earth! So in terms of the product itself, it's a standard tube packaging, so you unwind the top, squeeze out some product and use it on wherever there is dry skin. I like putting it on my hands, especially the area between my thumb and my index finger since that's always dry. And then I dab remaining bit onto my arms and elbows. I'm really a huge fan of the scent of the product, it's usually the one thing that makes it or breaks it for me. And this product made it! I feel confident using this product to keep my skin moisturized and soft. Interestingly, this product is made in Greece, so that's pretty cool! And it's distributed by Johnson & Johnson. This is a global company, so you can purchase this product online, or through stores such as Sephora and Ulta in the Unite States. It’s definitely a portable product and great travel buddy. I bought this with me when I traveled to California and it works like a charm! My boyfriend also agrees that this product works well for men as well! Overall, I think it’s by far one of the best product of it’s kind out on the market, so I highly recommend anyone interested in a new body butter to consider giving this Korres Body Butter in Guava a try!

  • Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer Total Moisture

    I was super excited to try this product. A few weeks ago, I was sent this product from Total Beauty to test out and write a review for. After trying this product a couple of times on my legs and arms, the first thing I noticed about this Vaseline Spray & Go moisturizer was how wonderful the scent is. The scent is pure oat extract + stratys 3 with multi-layer moisture. So what exactly is a Spray & Go moisturizer? It's exactly what it's name says: you spray this on and you're all ready to go! It "moisturizes in seconds so you can put your clothes right on". It has total moisture and is non-greasy. So perfect for the winter time when you have layers of clothes as well as the summer time when you don't want to be sweating. Benefits of Vaseline's Spray & Go include Moisturizes & absorbs in seconds. Instantly leaves skin soft, not sticky or greasy. Dispenses evenly with one all-over spray. For best results: Hold 4 inches from skin and spray over arms, legs and body in a continuous motion. Quickly rub into skin and go! It's quick and convenient, providing just as much moisture as I need and the lovely scent is really a great bonus!

  • Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial PocketBac Sanitizing Hand Gel

    I have so many bottles of different scents, it's hard to keep track of which ones I had and which ones I don't. I remember buying a bunch of them when they went on sale, and ended up giving most of them away to my friends. I usually pick the ones that I think smell amazing, so that I'm okay with the scent lingering (which it usually does for a bit). At the beginning, you'll get a tingly alcohol feel and then that usually recedes. This stuff works great before and after meals. It's something handy to keep around if there isn't a bathroom nearby to wash your hands. These are also tiny and great to use on the go when you want your hands to feel nice and clean!

  • Boots No 7 Beautiful Skin Night Cream for Normal/Dry Skin

    Immediately upon cleaning my face with the Boots No7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Lotion, I followed up with the Boots No7 Beautiful Skin Night Cream. It was a prefect makeup combination and the scent of this night cream is absolutely sensationally amazing! This product "energizes and helps promote optimum hydration for healthy radiant skin". Just a smooth dab of this product can cover my entire face, so this can definitely last me awhile. Smoothing this over my face and neck after cleaning every evening, and I noticed results immediately the following day after just one use! I absolutely love the scent of this Night Cream, in fact, I'm looking forward to buying the full size bottle on shopbootsusa with the incredible deal of 20$ off Boots No7 Skincare with the code: BTSINF20 from now until the end of this year! In fact, get a free No7 Moisture Quench with every purchase over $25 PLUS Free Shipping while supplies last! I absolutely love free shipping deals and purchasing the Boots No7 Beautiful Skin Night Cream is one that I will absolutely rejoice in!

  • Olay Oil Minimizing Toner
    9.0

    Olay Oil Minimizing Toner

    Slowly Likely It

    At first I really didn't like using this product, although it's affordable, I didn't think it compared at all to the Clinique 3 Oily Skin Clarifying Lotion that I lend to my boyfriend. Keep in mind, even though this Olay Oil Minimizing Toner is cheaper than the Clinique counterpart, it is also a lot less (212 ml for Olay versus 400 ml for the Clinique) Although, even taking size into consideration, this Olay oil minizing toner is still way more affordable! The first thing I noticed about this toner was that it was a lot stronger scented, so much that I really disliked using the product at first. Eventually, I did overcome disliking the scent and grew to like the product more and more especially given how effective it was in cleaning my face. The product description says it tones by removing dirt, oil and make-up without stripping skin’s essential moisture. The directions say to moisten a clean cotton ball with Olay Oil Minimizing Toner and wipe face and neck. I actually like usually a flat cotton pad, and feel like that works better in cleaning my face and neck and I actually like going down my lower back too. There is a slight tingly feeling to the face and then I apply moisturizer afterwards. I think this product is a great alternative to those who do not wish to splurge on the Clinique Clarifying Lotion (Toner). I think it does a beautiful job removing dirt and makeup, and I’m really glad to continue using it despite originally hating the scent. However, I do wish it had a more pleasant scent, than I would probably give this product all ten stars. I’m guessing it’s the witch hazel scent that I smell but witch hazel is also in the Clinique product. I would recommend this as a starter toner.

  • Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-Aging Intensive Repair Treatment

    For this Olay Regenerist Repair Treatment, the directions state to apply it daily, morning or evening, to cleansed skin in the aging-prone zone of my face and to follow with my usual facial moisturizer. I used it right after I shower, applied toner, and then the Olay intensive repair treatment in areas like my forehead, cheek, nose bridge, chin, and neck. The tube of the product is a little underwhelming, and the product squeezes out of this thin tube, almost like a glue, paint, or paste tube design that doesn’t really even make it seem like a makeup product. I’d wish it had the silver tube top like that of other companies. The tube itself also looks like it’s made out of cheap plastic, so that’s not all too attractive. The scent of this intensive repair treatment is one that’s almost neutral, so it has a very light scent that I am okay with. It doesn’t bother me but I’m not particularly in love with the smell either. The next thing is product application, so a very thing line squeezes out and when that’s spread, it’s almost like a light cream. On my forehead, I don’t feel much, but the other day, it really stung my checks. Almost to the point that I felt like it was a light burning sensation that did not feel pleasant at all, even after applying my usual moisturizer. It’s also hard to tell if the results of wrinkles reduction were at all noticeable, my skin does feel glowing and look relatively beautiful. Before saying no to trying this product, I think it’s worth giving this a try yourself and see if you see any results. Since I like to start my reviews at 10 stars and then take off stars for each point that I don’t like, I think this product is around a six and half, rounded up to 7.

It’s also hard to tell if the results of wrinkles reduction were all too noticeable, my skin does feel glowing and look relatively beautiful. Before saying no to completely trying this product, I think it’s worth giving this a try yourself and see if you see any results. Since I like to start my reviews at 10 stars and then take off stars for each point that I don’t like, I think this product is around a six and a half, rounded up to 7.

  • Clinique Liquid Facial Soap
    6.0

    Clinique Liquid Facial Soap

    A bit too liquidly and scent is awful

    I bought this product as part of the 3-step clinique facial wash system, with this liquid facial soap cleanser being the first of the three steps. Immediately, I did not like the consistency of the product, I understand it's a liquid facial soap but it just felt like soapy water or rather cleanser that was really watered down. It does foam a little bit but not to point where I felt like it was any better than just washing my face with water. My favorite of the three step process is actually the second step of toner, and I would highly recommend that for any one looking into purchasing a new cleansing product. So back to this Clinique LIquid Soap, it's watery, ineffective and the smell is awful. I mean really this facial soap is probably one of the worst purchases I've ever gotten, and it's really one that I regret especially with such an expensive price tag.

  • LORAC TANtalizer Lips with Benefits

    So the first thing I notice is that this LORAC Lips with Benefits Lip Gloss in Chuck somehow smells like coffee to me. The lip-gloss itself has almost a zebra strip of two colors, which provides a beautiful mixture color when applied onto one’s lips. This Lip with Benefits is a unique, hydrating formula that is paraben-free and infused with antioxidants of Acai Berry, Pomegranate Extract and Vitamins C & E to help nourish and protect the lips. The luscious glosses feature a ménage-a-trois of swirling striped hues for a one-of-a-kind, high-shine finish with flirty, sexy color and a sweet crème brulee fragrance (also known as what I feel is a coffee scent). It does have a relatively smooth application, and doesn’t make my lips feel sticky as some other glosses have in the past. The doe foot applicator is also great for applying the lip-gloss so that I don’t have to worry about using my unclean hands. The packaging is also very cute and adorable. Overall, I think this is a great lip product and makes my lips feeling moisturized, shiny and just plain gorgeous! Love the scent and just love the product in general. Although my lips are a bit chapped, and so I really should’ve started off with a smoother, less chapped lips, otherwise this lip-gloss delivers what it offers. And that’s really all you can ask for from a product. So the next time you’re on the market looking for a nice lip-gloss! Get this LORAC tantalizer Lips with benefits Lip Gloss in the flavor/color Chuck! I know have a nice pop of color of lips definitely lifts my mood and totally makes me feel sexy and more confident. If you’re looking for that extra confidence boost that’s actually smells good and have vitamins C & E, then look no further because this product is the right one for you!
