The night cream is packed with shea butter, zinc, green tea, seaweed and Vitamin E and A. The light weight and oil free night cream promises to hydrate skin for 12 hours.  It is non-greasy and fast absorbing. Upon application, my face looks dewy and bright. My face is softer and my complexion got a bit evenier. This night fluid gives a whole new definition to beauty sleep. Apply this before going to bed and wake up to greater looking skin in the morning.

Sally Hansen Nail & Cuticle Hand Creme

The nail & cuticle hand crème promise 24 hour moisture and improve the condition of nails and cuticles. The crème is packed with shea butter and ceramides. The orange scented hand crème was fast absorbing and non-greasy. It helped smoothed my cuticles and conditioned my nails.   The crème promises to keep hands moisturized even through hand washings, but I didn’t notice any improvement on the softness of my hands.    Even with liberal and constant application of the crème my hand doesn’t ever stay moisturized.  I started using the crème as more of a treatment for my cuticles instead of hand lotion as my cuticles did look better.

 I love the sweet intoxicating scent of this creamy body wash and the soft lingering scent was just as delectable. It gives off a generous lather and leaves my skin silky smooth and soft. The hydrating body wash is packed with milk proteins, acai berry, and soybean and rice bran oil.  This is one of my favorite scent from Bath and Body Works.

As an avid user of Bliss products, I love their facial products the best. The fabulous foaming face wash is exactly like its namesake, fabulous. It leaves my skin soft, smooth and hydrated with the exfoliating beads embedded in the creamy gel formula. I have not personally been to their spa but after washing my face with this product my skin feels pampered.  I love the soft fresh scent thanks to the botanical extracts. It makes me feel so calm and relaxed. It one of the few beauty products in my beauty regime that I love using on a daily basis regardless of how tired I am.

C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Tint - Magneta Mint

I love C.O. Bigelow’s Mentha lip gloss. The sparkly subtle red tint goes on thick but it is not sticky. I love how my breath gets minty when I apply it on my lips. The gloss is long lasting and it leaves my lips feeling soft.

TheBalm - Stainaic

I love the premise of this multi-use stain. The idea of having one product doing multiple things and make not only my life easier but I get to carry less is absolutely amusing. I was a bit disenchanted when this product didn’t live up to my expectations.  The consistency was a bit watery which is a bit understandable since it would make it easier to blend on both the cheeks and lips. The color was very sheer and hardly noticeable on my lips, while being blatantly looks painted on and harsh on my cheeks.  The blush didn’t look real and was very difficult to blend. The stain itself was long lasting. Overall, I don’t think I will use this on my cheeks and use this as a base on my lips.
