Clinique All About Eyes Rich Review

Clinique All About Eyes Rich

Hello everyone!

I have been trying a few different eye creams in the last few months and I have a pretty good idea of what worked and what didn’t. Today I’m reviewing this eye cream from Clinique; there are two types – there is the original All About Eyes which is a gel-cream formula and then the rich formula. I will be reviewing the other one as well in the next few weeks.

Clinique All About Eyes Rich

This eye cream is available in two sizes: 15ml and 30ml. You save a bit of money on the larger size but I do recommend that you purchase the smaller one first to see how it works for you and they do last a long time about 5-6 months for the 15ml. I like getting the smaller size when the product is housed in a jar like this because it is exposed to the air every time you open it and you must dip your fingers in to apply.

This formula is a true cream – it is much thicker than the original All About Eyes. I have to rub my finger in the product to pick it up; I feel it almost melt upon contact. Once I tap this product under my eyes I notice that it absorbs very well which is important because my concealer will be able to sit nicely on top. I have very oily skin but dry under eyes which is why I’m on the hunt for a good eye cream, I definitely want to prevent wrinkles from forming by keeping the area moisturized.

Clinique All About Eyes Rich

This eye cream claims to diminish the look of puffiness and dark circles while helping lessen the look of fine lines. I’m 25 years old and I don’t notice any wrinkles now but I’ve always used an eye cream to moisturize and to help my concealer glide on and not look cake-y and dry. I don’t have puffiness but I do have dark circles which is caused by my blue/purple veins showing through my very thin under eye skin.

In conclusion; this eye cream performed very nicely in moisturizing my eye area however, I didn’t notice it lightening my dark circles (I don’t think any cream can).

MAKE Beauty Moonlight Primer Review

MAKE Beauty Moonlight Primer

Hi everyone!

This primer got a lot of attention on social media simply because it is a sheer black color. I have the mini size and after trying it out a few times I have a few thoughts on it.

MAKE Beauty Moonlight Primer

Besides the fact that this primer is a black color (it contains melanin) it claims to shield against HEV and IR light which comes from computer/tablet/smart phone screens and this light causes premature ageing and skin damage. I was very intrigued that it also claims to diminish the look of pores and fine lines.

Once applied, this primer does not darken your skin tone – it becomes clear. It feels very hydrating and isn’t greasy or heavy at all. I don’t notice it doing much for my pores and will have to follow up with a pore filler before applying my foundation. This primer sits nicely on my skin and under foundation but in all honesty it doesn’t do much in terms of blurring out pores/fine lines or making my foundation stay on longer than usual.

I would apply this as a moisturizer because of the HEV and IR light protection that it gives but would follow up with another primer to give me the look and longevity that I want from my foundation.

Biotherm Aquasource Everplump Review

Biotherm Aquasource Everplump

Hello again!

Welcome back to my second mini review this week – if you haven’t seen the first one; click here. So today I thought I would review this little travel-sized moisturizer which intrigued me because it has the word “plump” in it’s name!

Biotherm Aquasource Everplump

This product claims to do lots of things such as deeply hydrate (contains Hyaluronic Acid), smooth and plump the skin so that fine lines are pushed away and less visible. It is a gel formula which I love because it isn’t heavy/thick or greasy feeling on the skin. It did instantly give me really soft smooth skin which I enjoyed. I don’t have any fine lines so I can’t comment on that claim but it did plump my skin with moisture so I would imagine that it would help minimize the look of fine lines. The only downside to this product is that the scent is very strong and very masculine-cologne type of smell which I do not enjoy rubbing all over my face.

Overall, besides the scent, this is a really nice moisturizer and I like applying this in the mornings before makeup because it absorbs quickly and doesn’t make me any more oily than I usually am.

Indi Beauty Buttercream Antioxidant Lip Scrub Review

Indi Beauty Buttercream Antioxidant Lip Scrub

Hi everyone!

I love wearing matte lipsticks but absolutely hate how they apply when my lips are dry – the lipstick clings to every dry patch and exaggerates every single bump. Exfoliation is a MUST if you are going to apply a liquid lipstick!

Indi Beauty Buttercream Antioxidant Lip Scrub

This is the first of the 5 posts that I will be putting up this week. Each review will be of a mini travel-sized product and my first impression(s) of it.

Starting off with the packaging; it is very standard for a lip scrub – simple container with a twist off cap. The product smells like a delicious cake! The consistency is very thick and fairly abrasive which helps remove dead skin in seconds. It is also very oily which leaves my lips super soft even when I wipe the product away. It gets rid of the dead skin and hydrates within a few seconds of rubbing it on my lips.

Indi Beauty Buttercream Antioxidant Lip Scrub

On the website it says that you can use this to remove long wearing/liquid lipstick – I would imagine that it would take it off fairly easy since it contains almond, avocado and Vitamin E oil. This product also contains Organic Sugar and beeswax (therefore not vegan).

I really do enjoy this lip scrub and will definitely be finishing it up soon!

Estee Lauder The Estee Edit Pore Vanishing Moisturizer Review

Estee Lauder The Estee Edit Pore Vanishing Moisturizer

Hello again!

I can’t control myself when I see a mattifying moisturizer and this one was even more intriguing because it claims to work as a mattifying primer as well.

On the website this product claims to blur the look of pores, reduce shine, smooth skin, and helps control pore-clogging oil with Salicylic Acid. It contains Vitamin C, Caffeine and Bisabolol which calms skin. On top of that it is oil-free, non-acnegenic, Dermatologist and Ophthalmologist tested.

Estee Lauder The Estee Edit Pore Vanishing Moisturizer

Before we get in to how this worked for me I like to start with the packaging. I really like squeeze tubes; you don’t have to dip your finger in product and it is clean and compact. It’s also very light weight and sleek which makes it easy to store when travelling. I also like the white and silver packaging with a hint of blue; the packaging doesn’t look cheap at all.

The product itself is a white opaque cream and is very light-weight; feels almost like a gel consistency but not quite. The scent is mild and fresh and not bothersome or floral. When I rub this into my skin I feel it slightly mattifying but it doesn’t leave my skin completely matte. I need to follow up with a pore filler because this doesn’t really minimize my pores however, it does give me an instant radiance/brightening effect while removing excess oil. This can look great on no makeup days and when layered under foundationย it sits nicely; doesn’t roll up or look cakey which is a problem that I have had with mattifying bases. It does prolong the time that I tend to get really oily and want to blot but it doesn’t eliminate the need to blot.

Overall, I like this product but it doesn’t live up to the claims that it makes. However, I have to mention that I’m very oily – more so than the average person!

Tony Moly I’m Real Aloe Mask Sheet Review

Tony Moly I'm Real Aloe Mask Sheet

Hi everyone!

Before I begin with the review I want to let you know that next week I will be posting a review everyday Monday to Friday. Each review will be of a mini travel-sized product that I think deserves a review on my blog and that I want to let you guys know about!

Now, lets continue with the review – I have been seeing these sheet masks from Tony Moly everywhere, in stores and online so I was very curious as to how effective they really are after one application. Each packet contains one sheet mask that is saturated in product. There are many different ones for almost every skin concern and I chose the hydrating Aloe.

The sheet mask itself is very nice; it sits well on the skin and has slits which can adjust to fit whether you have a short or long face. The mask is extremely saturated so you have to place a towel on your chest otherwise the product will drip and run down your face. The scent is very mild and pleasant; not at all overwhelming or bothersome which is very important since it needs to sit on the skin for 20 – 30 minutes. After removing the mask I massage the product into my skin and let it absorb. I instantly notice that my skin looks very plump and moisturized because of the glycerin, aloe and Hyaluronic acid that it contains.

I really liked the aloe formula and I will definitely be trying out the other sheet masks from Tony Moly. I purchased these masks from eBay for only $2 CAD a piece; I can’t find the seller but if you search this on eBay lots of sellers will come up and you can choose one.

Have you tried any sheet masks recently?

Clinique Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate Review

Clinique Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate

Hello everyone!

This is a fairly new product from Clinique but I haven’t heard much about it on social media/YouTube. I knew if this was anything like the Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief than I would love it!

Clinique Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate

This is described as a water-gel formula that boosts skin’s hydration for a full 24 hours. It also contains antioxidants – the little beads contain Vitamins C and E which is great because I always get the best results with serums/moisturizers that contain Vitamin C. Vitamin C brightens, lightens acne scars and has great anti-aging benefits.

Clinique Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate

The packaging is gorgeous; you can also see how much product you still have in the bottle. It contains a pump and is not housed in a jar or dropper type bottle; since it’s airtight the vitamins will stay fresh. I believe this contains hyaluronic acid as well which is the most effective ingredient to combat dryness. It feels very lightweight and refreshing upon application – it can feel a bit tacky if you apply too much; one pump is enough for the entire face.

I definitely feel the hydration and plumpness this gives my skin after each use but it doesn’t give that instant silky feeling that the Moisture Surge Extended gives. I have very oily skin and find that this can definitely replace my moisturizer but for dry skin types I would recommend that you layer a moisturizer on top of this.

Overall, I like how this contains some anti-aging benefits as well as replacing moisturizer for me but I would recommend the Moisture Surge Extended over this because I’m addicted to the instant softness that it gives.
