March Favorite and Finished Products, and Target Bag

I'm kind of late on this, but it's always better later than never! :)

March Favorite Products
Integrate Palette in BR730: I feel very fortunate to receive this from Luna. I've been using this palette a lot this month and think it looks great on a daily basis. It's not too heavy for the work environment, as well as, running the errands during the day. I did a short review/mention of this palette. Please check it out so you can see the swatches and one look I came out with this palette.

Lacvert Sunblock: My sister-in-law bought me this last summer in Korea. I was debating to review this or not, but realized it's not a well known brand. Even if I review this, I doubt people will know where to get this. If you disagree and want me to review, please tell me. Now for the review, I'm just in love with this! Most sunscreens give me the white sheen that makes me look like a ghost. This sunscreen doesn't. It soaks into your skin like butter. I feel like I'm putting moisturizer on my skin. I also noticed some sunscreens have some type of scent. This sunscreen doesn't. The best part is that I'm not allergic to this sunscreen! I'm allergic to certain chemicals, oxybenzone and avobenzone, American sunscreens have. It's actually a good thing I'm allergic to those chemicals since they're cancer causing. It's a minimum but still not a good idea to put it on your screen or at least I think so. The scary part is a lot of baby/children sunscreens carry these chemicals. Why I ask!?!? I don't know. :/ It also doesn't have titanium oxide. Who wants to put titanium on your skin eh? I know I don't. :P

China Glaze in Crushed Candy: I was fortunate to receive this from Spankedelic. It's one of those crackle/shatter nail polishes. I was really excited to try colored one. I compared this to my other crackle/shatter nail polishes. Please check that out. :) I think this teal/light blue color looks best on top of blue color. That's just my opinion. ;)

Maybelline EyeStudio Gel Eyeliner in Blackest Black: I have never been a fan of liquid eyeliners. I noticed most liquid eyeliners are shiny. I tend to be drawn to matte eyeliner looks. For that reason, I tend to go for pencils and cream/gel eyeliners. I reviewed this so please check that out. ;) I think this is a worthwhile product that goes on smooth and looks good. The only issue I have is I'm impatient to wait for it to dry and then curl my lashes. For that reason, I tend to curl my lashes before I use the eyeliner.

Revlon Lipstick in Demure: I received this from My Fit Beauty. To be honest if I saw this at the drugstore, I would have pass this up. It's one of those colors that doesn't draw my attention. It's nothing special but once on, it's hot! It's a gorgeous nude color. My makeup buddy says, "It's your lip color but better!" I convinced her to get one and she loves it too! :) I will eventually get to the swatches of this lipstick. I'm just behind in blogging *sigh*.

March Finished Products
Olay Daily Facials Intensives Smooth Skin Exfoliating Scrub: What a name! It's long. :P I received this sample some time ago and finally finished the product. It's nothing special. It's a cream-like product with blue beads. When I exfoliated my face, the blue beads didn't do anything that I noticed. If you're looking for a light exfoliating product, this might be. I kind of want more where the beads will do it's work.

Would I repurchase: No, it's too light for me. I need a heavier exfoliating product.

L'oreal Collage Micro-Pulse Eye: I received this from BzzAgent to review and I reviewed it. When I first used this, I didn't think it was that bad. The pulse sensation was kind of fun but I could see some tugging involved. I actually stopped using the pulse sensation because I thought it was bad for the light, sensitive skin under my eyes. :/ From the beginning to the end, I didn't notice any changes on my skin. It looked the same and the wrinkles didn't go away.

Would I repurchase: No, it didn't work for me.

Dr. Hunter's Rosewater & Glycerine Hand Creme: I wrote a review for this hand cream, and I strongly recommend it. I still think it's a great hand cream and sad to finish it. This hand cream is definitely for people with dry skin that cracks easily. My hand only tends to crack during the winter weather. Thankfully, it's spring time and I don't have to apply much lotion on my hands. I still try to apply every night, but I have to admit I'm not that good. :X

Would I repurchase: Yes, when winter comes around.

Caress Whipped Souffle White Peach Cream Ultra Silkening Body Wash: I don't know why Caress makes cream like body washes. They just seem a little too thick for my taste. I tend to like liquid-y body washes because they're easier to come out of the bottle. Thankfully, it was a sample because I didn't like it much. It smelled nice, peach flavor. :)

Would I repurchase: No, I like liquid type of body washes.

Victoria's Secret Pink Energizing Body Lotion With Natural Citrus & Mint: I received a sample of this and thought it smelled more towards citrus than mint. It's a good thing because I tend to like fruity flavors than minty. It's not the most hydrating lotion. I think it's more on the light side and good towards the spring/summer weather.

Would I repurchase: No, because it's discontinued.

The Body Shop Body Butter in Mango: It smelled good! I noticed some mango flavor products either is a hit or miss when it comes to smell. They can smell bad or really smell like mango like this product. I love my Body Butter from The Body Shop. I even reviewed this product. They melt like butter but can be on the thick side. I tend to only use this during the winter weather. It really helps my skin feels hydrated.

Would I repurchase: Yes, I already have two back ups. :D

I hope everyone ordered their Target bag! I finally received mine, and thought I would just post it since so many people have posted theirs. :D
Here are my samples and Target coupon book. I gave the Neutrogena lip balm to my father. He told me he has lip balms that will last him 10 years and to stop giving him some. :X I gave him all my white or non-colored lip balms. The best thing out of this is the makeup bag from Sonia Kashuk. It's really adorable and blue! ;)

I'm absolutely in love with Caress Whipped Soufflé! It's amazing! I personally didn't have trouble to make the product come out of the bottle, but my bottle isn't like that. I wish we had this brand here )=

Emily said...

Hi Ahleessa, thanks for visiting my blog! I love gel eyeliner, but I'm using the MAC one. Thinking of switching to Bobbi Brown/Clinique.

Lovely blog! :)

Dr. Hunter's sound interesting and the scent must be great as well. Must try when the dry season approaches again -_0

lacvert is just one of the branches of Amore--just like Laneige is. Unfortunately people outside of Korea don't know the line very well! I own a couple things from them (blushes and lipsticks) and I really like their moisturizing products. :)

박진아 said...

hehe~ thankyou so much! <3

It's one of their more expensive lines, but not quite up there with Hera or anything :p

Laneige is supposed to be cheap T^T (wth!) aside from that, Lacvert's cover model is kim yuna the figure skater, so they had it going for awhile, but after all the olympics had ended, noone cared for it! haha. There are some Amore stores around in la, but idk where else you could buy them! :(

Jennifer said...

Jennifer said...
