Le Petit Marseillais Body Wash | Review

Le Petit Marseillais, pronounced as “luh-puh-tee mar-say-ay”, are body washes came from Provence, France in 1981 and has now flown to Canada. It is claimed to be the number 1 body wash in France so my expectations were quite high.

There are five varieties of scents: White Peach and Nectarine, Lavender Honey, Cotton Milk and Poppy, Orange Blossom, and Vanilla Milk. All of these fragrances sound soooo scrumptious and refreshing. I took a whiff when I first received it in the mail and I was completely satisfied. All of these fragrances are inspired by the South of France and artful combinations of sunny, authentic notes formulated from top perfumers. It totally takes me on an aromatic trip!

Details below!

Intro to The Ordinary | Review

It could get a little overwhelming when you’re new to the brand and you feel like you want to try everything. I was like that when I first dropped by the Abnormal Beauty Company at the Queen St. W location. It triggered my curiosity and along with the entire beauty world. I had no idea that this highly-raved skincare brand was just a couple of blocks away from me. I was also looking for cheaper serums that work because the ones at Sephora were just too damn expensive. I did my research first and decided to try 3 of their serums. I wanted something hydrating and antiaging.

So apparently The Abnormal Beauty Company is also called Deciem? Correct me if I’m wrong. They carry different skincare brands like Hylamide, Niod, The Ordinary, and etc. I do get why they are so popular. The minimalistic packaging, the price, the range of products targetted to specific needs? It’s all amazing, but does it work? My expectations were quite high!

This post will talk about:

  • Product aims
  • Basic ingredient knowledge
  • Prices in Canadian dollars
  • How I use it
  • When I use it
  • How I use them all together in my skincare routine
  • Effects on my skin
  • Would I repurchase?

Let’s begin! Continue reading

2 Serums My Skin’s Been Loving | Eden’s Semilla Vitamin C Serum and Hyaluronic Acid Serum

My skincare routine consists of a few products. It’s always changing but it I tend to stick to the basics: cleanser, serum and moisturizer. I’ll probably do a separate blog post for my comprehensive skincare routine. For now, I’ll talk about the serums that have changed the texture of my skin for the good.

I have been looking at proper serums at Sephora and everything is just so pricey! I haven’t decided if any of it is worth it so I just pushed it aside and postponed buying any skincare item. Luckily, the kind people over at Eden’s Semilla reached out and had me try out their AMAZING serums.

Eden’s Semilla is basically a brand that specialises in natural oils, essential oils and facial serums. Both serums are free of parabens (preservatives) and sulphates, fragrance-free, vegan-friendly and not tested on animals. Continue reading

Maybelline Better Skin Concealer

The Maybelline Better Skin Concealer came fairly new to the beauty world. Maybelline is known for their amazing concealers and this Better Skin Concealer didn’t fall off that image.

I’ll start by saying that I have dry and flaky skin (as some of you may already know), and finding a proper concealer that won’t cling to my dry patches is pretty frustrating. Concealers from the drugstore have a lot of hits and misses. Often times we don’t have an option to try before we buy because it’s all sealed and testers are unavailable. Finding a hidden gem is so satisfying. As you probably can tell by this intro, this concealer is worth reaching for. Continue reading

Make Up For Ever Step 1 Skin Equalizer Smoothing Primer

I don’t have much experience with primers because I’m not a fan of the feeling of having so many things piled on to my face. I gave this one a try to hop on to the primer train and see if I am willing to add another step to my already-too-long makeup routine. This MUFE Step 1 Equalizer in Smoothing is supposed to smooth out the texture of the skin while keeping your makeup stay in place all day.

PACKAGING

This product comes in a matte squeezy tube in a simple and sleek design. I also love how all the Equalizers are in different colours based on their purpose. The product comes out in a skinny spout that easily controls how much product you want to use.
