Eurecin Review

I think I've found my new love! 

I know I've read that Eurecin has been known to calm the skin, but there aren't very much near where I live.  However a couple of weeks back I went down to the states for a day trip.  On my way home I was just browsing through riteaid and saw some.  They were on sale so I thought "why not".  I was wondering which one I should pick up.  The night cream was the last of my list.

I have really sensitive skin and something really thick would effect my skin in a negative way.  But I was reading though the ingredients and I found licorice root in it!  Licorice root was in one of the higher end lotions I was using.

I picked it up and I used it last night.  I wanted to wait to do a formal review.  But this morning I had no redness on my face and alot of my acne cooled down!

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Hype

Well I always wanted to know what the hype about Bobbi Brown's Shimmer Brick was all about.  I kept thinking to myself that it couldn't have been that great.  Because we've all been down that road of disappointment before. 

I was really surprised to find them in a CCO.  There were three kinds, the apricot, bronze and one in between.  Now that I think about it, I should have picked up the bronze instead of the apricot. 

Don't get me wrong, I love the apricot.  But I think I have waaayyy to many blushes already ^^;;
And I'm not the biggest fan of bronzer, but the Shimmer Brick series had such a soft and subtle glow.

Cuz BAM is that not amazing looking? @___@

I have to say, using this product is a dream.  I've been using mostly drugstore stuff right now and for things like lipsticks, sometimes I actually prefer the drugstore.  But for powders, I think it's very hard or a drugstore brand to deliver as smooth of an application as a high end brand.

Big, biiiiggggg thumbs up for this product!

long time no blog

So I've been on this hiatus for no reason.  I guess I've just got so much stuff I want to talk about piled high, I don't know where to start.  So I'll start from what I had in the begining I guess =)

I had a haul from waaaayyyy back.  I may have meantioned this earlier but I think I'm turning into a skin care junkie more than anything. 

La Senza was having a sale back and I just couldn't resist getting some of their lotions to try out.

  I just couldn't resist X3 They smell so go.  I didn't really expect them to be moisturizing.  I bought them so that they could be a good base for my perfumes.  But actually they're really moisturizing! 

I have the strawberry fizz lotion, one of the candy body soufles and the rose body butter away to friends.  But I did try the others.  Amber Rose I think has to be my favourite.  I'm not much of a fan of amber, because it is quite overpowering, but it's really sutle.  There's a stronger smell of vanilla and taht combination is very soft and comforting. 

The Candy body soufle is something I haven't had time to try yet long term, but I couldn't resist lathering some on to try XD;;
It was sooo light.  I don't know why I've never thought about looking for body souffles before!
