February Favorite Products
Smith's Rosebud Salve: I actually bought this quite a long time ago, end of 2009, in the trio set. I didn't use it because I have so many lip balm products. When it comes to lip balm products, I am pretty good about using one at a time and do not swatch/try the products until it it's turn. Now that I've been trying this, I can see why people like this product. It's very moisturizing and it smells good (rose). It's definitely an improvement compared the the last two lip balms I used (EOS and Victoria's Secret Pink Lip Butter which will be on the Empty Products of the Month). I will review this in the future. It'll probably be the trio set which I don't see the review happening any time soon. :X
Dr. Hunter's Rosewater & Glycerin Hand Creme: This has been a life saver for my dry, bleeding, chapped hands. It has moisten it and healed the bleeding. I reviewed this so please read that. :)
Rock & Republic Blush in Call Me: I'm a huge fan of R&R blushes!!! I have reviewed the blushes so please check that out. The blushes are smooth and pigmented. They also come in a wonderful packaging. The only thing is they're kind on the heavy side but once you apply it, you don't need to reapply or at least from my experience. For that reason, you don't really need to carry the blush with you. Call Me is on a peachy-pink side, check out my swatch. It's kind of similar to Nars Orgasm but more on the pink side. It's very natural looking and gives of a hint of glow. I love it! :)
Physicians Formula Happy Booster Blush in Rose: Not only is the packaging gorgeous, it's very pigmented. I only need to apply once and don't have to worry about reapplying. I still think Physicians Formula are underrated in the beauty blogging world. It's such a great quality drugstore product from my experiences. I don't own many but the ones I do, I love them! :) I also reviewed this blush so check that out and the swatch.
Barry M. in Nail Effects: I was blessed to receive this. Thank you Trinh! :) I did a comparison of this shatter/crack nail polish next to OPI in Black Shatter. I love my OPI in Black Shatter but I'm more a fan of Barry M. for the reason I can see the under base color more.
Now for my empty products and I quite a lot. :/
February Finished Products
Le Dekor Moisture Rich Forming Cleanser: This is for normal to dry skin. I have mixed feelings about this cleanser. I love how you only need a little bit and it foams up. I love cleansers that foam up. It just makes me feel like it's doing it's job. It's probably all mentally and I heard it's an Asian mentality to think that way *sigh*. :/ Even though, it's a sample size product this thing lasts a long time because you really only need a pea size. The bad thing about this is after I cleanse my face, the texture of my skin feels different. It feels all dried up but it's not dried up. I know that doesn't make sense but I don't know how to explain it. :X Please read my review.
Would I repurchase: No, because I don't know where they sell this.
Cellnique Derma Brightening Complex: I always make sure I use serum before any moisturizer on my face. I heard serum are suppose to improve your skin but in all honesty, I don't ever notice any improvements. It could be I'm blind or they really don't improve my skin. :X After using the whole product, I didn't notice any improvements. I do notice when I use serum, it's really refreshing to the skin and the moisturizer goes on better. I did review this product and you can only purchase this item at the Cellnique website.
Would I repurchase: Maybe, if they were sold here in the states to give it another try.
Pond's Dry Skin Cream: When I first bought this, it really moisturized my skin. That was last winter. I stopped using for the summer because it was too rich for my skin. That's why I reopened the moisturizer to use it this winter. I don't know if it has to do with the product already opened and used or maybe it got old, but it felt greasy unlike the first time I used it. :/ It also didn't moisturize my skin like last winter. It just didn't feel the same. Who knows maybe my skin got worst and drier *sigh*.
Would I repurchase: Probably not since I have another bottle of this. I bought it during BOGO free sale.
Victoria's Secret Pink Lip Butter: I received free, and thank goodness because I wouldn't purchase it. It's more moisturizing than EOS, but still not that moisturizing. :X I'm not too sure what the scent was. It's suppose to be on the citrus side but it definitely was not to my nose. The best part of this lip balm is that it had a hint of color. It made my lips look more juicer. :D
Would I repurchase: Probably not since they discontinued this product.
Up & Up Makeup Removing Cleansing Towelettes: I'm so glad I finally finished this item. I was kind of disappointed with this purchase because it has a strong, floral scent. It wasn't appealing to my nose. It also was strong and stung my eye area. I'm not too sure why or who knows I might be sensitive in the eye area. I also reviewed this product.
Would I repurchase: No!
