I’m speaking about two months of beauty products in this post. In April, I was experiencing technical difficulties that stopped me from updating.
I also started using the samples in a L’Occitane Advent Calendar I received. It explains why you’ll be reading through seven body lotion reviews.
Products I Finished – March & April 2019
My favourite thermal spring water spray.
Re-Purchase? YES. (c$16.50 – 150ml Standard-Size) – Canada Link
My favourite hyaluronic acid serum.
Re-Purchase? YES. (c$6.80 – 30ml) – Canada Link
This mascara suits someone with eyes that are sensitive and need easy removal. I bought this mascara right before my eye doctor told me to stop wearing eye makeup. Since, I can wear eye makeup now it’s better to buy a new mascara.
Re-Purchase? NO. (c$16 – 7ml)
Last October, it was thrilling to find a Lip Smacker sugar skull lip balm in the flavour cinnamon churros. It was fun to use and it lasted long past Halloween. Lip Smacker lip balms may not be the most moisturizing but they do come in such cute designs and flavours.
Re-Purchase? NO. (c$6.95 – 7.4g)
In 2017, I had enough empties to take part in the M.A.C. recycling program. I chose the best selling shade velvet teddy to be my free lipstick. I found the matte formula to be drying and uncomfortable. Isn’t interesting when you don’t like the best sellers?
Re-Purchase? NO. (c$23 – 3g) – Canada Link
Brush refreshers are for people who like intricate eye makeup. This tool lets you wipe your brush clean instead of switching to a fresh brush for a new product or shade. I’m not one to do complicated eye makeup and this tool was an impulse buy for me. Going for more minimalist eye make up is one for me, and it is for a few people, but even minimalist makeup needs some pointers.
Re-Purchase? NO. (c$9)
I chose the Bite Beauty 2018 Birthday Gift from Sephora and didn’t use this mauve brown lipstick fast. It dried out.
Purchase? NO. (c$30 – 4.35g Full-Size) – Canada Link
A moisturizing body cream with an almond scent.
Purchase? NO. (c$65 – 200ml Full-Size) – Canada Link
Out of all the samples I finished in March-April from the L’Occitane Advent Calendar this cherry blossom lotion is my favourite.
Purchase? MAYBE. (c$34 – 250ml) – Canada Link
A hand cream with a strong rose scent.
Purchase? NO. (c$12 – 30ml Mini-Size) – Canada Link
This is body cream with a light fragrance. It isn’t memorable and you could find comparable drugstore options.
Purchase? NO. (c$34 – 50ml Full-Size) – Canada Link
A light body lotion with a lemon scent.
Purchase? NO. (c$34 – 250ml) – Canada Link
Similar to the L’Occitane Shea Light Comforting Cream except it’s a lotion.
Purchase? NO. (c$39 – 250ml) – Canada Link
This shower cream does not replace a body lotion or cream – it’s best described as a moisturizing body wash.
Purchase? NO. (c$24 – 250ml) – Canada Link
A light lotion with avocado oil in the ingredients and a jasmine scent.
Purchase? NO. (c$9.95 – 250ml)
In June 2018, I received this lip balm in a run swag bag. It’s messy lip balm that tastes exactly like banana medicine. The scent would linger and you could taste the flavour when eating.
Purchase? NO. (c$3.99 – 4.25g) – Canada Link
I am not fond of scrubs because they feel rough on the skin and don’t lather. This one did have a lovely rose scent though.
Purchase? NO. (c$22 – 250ml) – Canada Link
Victoria’s Secret Ultra Rich Pomegranate Cream Wash
A moisturizing body wash with a pomegranate scent. This is my last product in my Victoria’s Secret set.
Purchase? NO. (c$?)
I like how the clear gel didn’t transfer on clothes and how affordable the value size of this antiperspirant is. My everyday perfume and the artificial vanilla scent in this product did clash. I may try other scents in the future.
Re-Purchase? MAYBE. (c$5.97 – 73g Value Size)
This has been my favourite SLS-Free toothpaste for over a year. That was until I saw an ad for a new SLS-Free toothpaste from Sensodyne called Pronamel Strong & Bright Enamel. I’ve now used both toothpastes they both have pros and cons. I’m torn on which one I will re-purchase.
Re-Purchase? MAYBE. (c$6.99 – 75ml Standard Size) – Canada Link
My favourite eyelid wipes.
Re-Purchase? YES. (c$10.97 – 32 Wipes)
After finishing fourteen perfume samples in 2018, I chose Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Nectar to be my first scent in 2019. The best way to describe it is to say that it smells like a sophisticated Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy or Aquolina Pink Sugar. It has notes of osmanthus, orange blossom, and gun powder accord.
Re-Purchase? NO. (c$36 – 7.5ml Mini-Size) – Canada Link
What beauty products have you finished?
