|A white powder! ;)|
I had a bit of a read about this exfoliant on the Dermalogica website and it is a rice-based exfoliating powder which activates upon contact with water. It claims to exfoliate, brighten and smooth the skin which is definitely something I am looking for! How do I even use this powder? Instructions say "Dispense about a half-teaspoon of Daily Microfoliant® into very wet hands and create a creamy paste by rubbing hands together. Apply to face in circular motions, avoiding the eye area. Massage gently for one minute, then rinse thoroughly".
After reading a few reviews online the general consensus was that it was an excellent exfoliator so I didn't hesistate to try it!. Wow. What an amazing product. I don't think I've been so pleased with a product before! It did create a nice creamy paste which I lathered on my face, it was so easy. I rinsed my face and wow, my face is super soft and smooth! Very pleased as I have never used an exfoliator that has worked so well! I applied my rosehip oil and I had never feel it glide so smoothly and absorb so well before. I would definitely want to repurchase but will want to find a good deal as $83 is not something you will call cheap! I was very impressed and am super glad I got this freebie with my favourite magazine.
Parissa Chamomile Body Sugar
Yay my first prize from a blog giveaway! Super happy. I have never heard of this brand before, but it is a Canadian brand. It is a natural hair removal treatment made from sugar infused with soothing chamomile (sounds yummy!). The Parissa Body Sugar claims to be gentle on skin yet tough on hair (it can also be used on the face) and is ideal for both beginners and pros.
|Comes with 140ml sugar, 20 washable strips, 8 ml Azulene oil, 3 spatulas (only the small one is shown)|
Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream
Schwarzkopf LiveColour Shake It Up Colour Foam in 668 Amber Ample Twist
|Do you love the colour too?!|
This hair colour claims to be a "permanent vibrant foam colour with a dazzling gloss effect and a juicy, fruity scent!" Yum! I could smell the fruity scent too which was pleasant. Looking forward to colouring my hair with this as I think a foam hair colour will be much easier to use than your regular creams. I hope there will be a good colour pay off although I am doubtful. Will definitely post a review up when I do dye my hair though :)
Mirenesse Cat Eyes Liner
The last of the freebies! This is the Mirenesse Cat Eyes Liner pencil! It retails for $29.95 which you can buy from its website. It is a highly pigmented crayon eyeliner (wind up, doesn't need sharpening woohoo!) which claims to glide on and stay put all day. I have only ever come across one eyeliner that doesn't smudge on me- eyeliners are notorious for giving me panda eyes and not staying put EVEN after I slather on the eye primer (I use a Revlon one in case you were wondering!). So I was happy to try this although I find black eyeliners a little too harsh for me as I would rather a dark brown colour.
|Wind up is always handy!|
How did it hold up? A little better than I expected although it still smudged a little after about 8 hours but that wasn't much of a surprise to me. In terms of "gliding" on, it was okay but nothing amazing. I used the smudger but it was just a smudger- it did blend out some wobbly lines though! Would I repurchase it? No. It is a nice eyeliner but nothing special.
This post turned out to be a bit long! I was going to halve it but I wasn't really sure how that would have worked so this has ended up as a big post!
