Product Review – The Monthly Watch Club

Hello Everyone!!

Happy Friday!!!

I was recently contacted by the Monthly Watch Club. I was a bit hesitant at first, but I decided to give it a try. Based on my research about the company, I found out that it is legitimate and I love the different styles of watches they offer. As per usual, her is my disclaimer; I received this watch for the sole purpose of trying and sharing my honest thoughts and opinions with you all.

A little bit about the Monthly Watch Club; it is a monthly subscription. Individuals pay a monthly subscription fee  of $39.99 CAD  and receive a brand new custom made watch that is theirs to keep every month. The Monthly Watch Club offers flexible plans; month to month plan, 3 months plan, 6 months plan  or yearly plan.

For more information, check out their website at http://www.monthlywatchclub.ca  and their Instagram page at https://www.instagram.com/monthlywatchca/

Here is the watch that I received

 

     

 

 

 

 

It is a very nice watch and the band is made with genuine leather. I love the detailing on the band and I think that it is old-fashionably beautiful. The only con for me is that the watch is a bit too small. I prefer watches that are slightly bigger than this one and the band is a little short which made it feel a bit tight on my wrist.   Aside from that, It is a great watch and it is great for women who have smaller wrists than me.

Overall, I think that out of all the subscription programs out there, this one is a good one because watches are great and functional accessories. With the holidays right around the corner, I think that purchasing a subscription for someone special would make a great gift.

That is it for this post. As always, thank you for reading. Until the next one!

 

 

Elancyl Laboratoire – Slim Design Night

Hello Everyone! Happy Wednesday!

This post is a quick and short review for the Slim Design Night anti-cellulite cream that I have had the chance to try lately. As I always, my disclaimer is that this product was sent to for the sole purpose of trying and reviewing. All opinions in this post are my own and as honest as possible.

When I was approached about this product, I thought that it would be the perfect cream for me to try especially given that I am in the process of getting my VSG surgery. Here are some Important facts about this cream: it claims to fight stubborn cellulite, intense nighttime slimming, smoothe dimples, and provide intense nourishment. The main ingredients are caffeine – which eliminates fat; ivy -which detoxify tissues; salacia – which de-structure connective tissue; safflower oil – which hydrate and nourish the skin.

This cream has a light, non-greasy, creamy consistency and smells really good. It is made in Paris and is available here in Canada at Shoppers Drugs Mart. The cost for this cream is $60 CAD, which in my opinion, is expensive based on the fact that I am on a budget and there are many cheaper options on the market. However, I prefer this cream because of the main ingredients in it. Spending $60 on a 200ml bottle of anti-cellulite cream is justifiable.

So now the million dollar question is; does it work?  I  have tried this cream for about a good month now and the only thing I have noticed so far is that the skin on my inner and outer thighs is much firmer than it was before. As for my cellulites, I am not too sure because I am not too worried about them, my main interest in this cream is its firming ability, given that loose skin is one of my concerns especially after I have the surgery.

Do I recommend it?  I am on the fence with this one. The price is a little steep, but the list of ingredients is great.

That is it for this post. I hope you enjoyed reading it. Until next time!!!

 

Product Review: Formula 10.0.6 – Pores Be Pure Skin-clarifying mud mask

Hello Everyone!

Today’s post is a quick product review for the Formula 10.0.6 Pores Be Pure Skin-Clarifying Mud Mask, which I have had the chance to use lately.

Ingredients: the main ones are strawberry, yarrow and rosemary. It also contains water, kaolin clay, cetyl alcohol, salicylic acid, methylparaben, propylparaben, sodium hydroxide, etc…

Function:  the claim about this mask is that it is a skin-refining mask with berry boosters that goes straight to work on clogged pores, strawberry and rosemary eliminate impurities while yarrow clarifies the skin for instant complexion perfection.

How to use: it is to be applied on fresh cleansed and dried skin of the face and neck while avoiding eye area.

Price: It costs $8.97 CAD at Walmart

My opinion: Overall, the Pores Be Pure Skin-Clarifying Mud Mask is a not-so-bad face mask. When it comes to the ingredients, there are a few that raise a red flag for me especially the methylparaben and the propylparaben. I love the fact that the ingredients are listed on the container and visible enough, so consumers are aware. I love the mild tingling sensation, it smells great and from a price stand point, it’s not too bad.

Would I repurchase and recommend the Pores Be Pure Skin-Clarifying Mud Mask? Honestly, no and no. As I mentioned, some of the ingredients are raising a red flag and the face mask contains parabens, which I am not a fan of. I prefer using face masks without parabens in them and there are many other face masks that are paraben free on the market.

That is it for this review. I hope you enjoyed reading it. Until next time!

Late post: Product Review – Estee Lauder Revitalizing Supreme Eye Gelee

Hey Beautiful people!

Happy Tuesday!

I have been slacking so much on posting constantly on my blog. I do apologize for that. So these next few weeks I will be posting about the products that I have been using the past few months. I will call this my “Late post” category. Anyways, enough blabbing…

So this post is a review for the Estee Lauder Revitalizing Supreme Eye Gelee. Just a quick disclaimer, I was sent this product for the sole purpose of trying and sharing my honest opinion with yall.

I have tried a few different eye creams but I am not sure that they make a difference in how my under eye area looks. However I love the fact that they help keep my under eye area moisturized and they make the application of concealer appear much smoother with less creasing.

Here are a few facts about the Estee Lauder Eye Gelee:

  • It is multi-action, fatigue-fighting eye treatment that helps eye skin look and feel firmer, radiant and deeply nourished.
  • It improves skin’s visible firmness, reduces the look of lines, wrinkles and puffiness, and brightens the look of dark circles.
  • It is an Energizing Complex of powerful, energy boosters, including Sea Lavender flower extract, helps promote natural cellular energy.
  • The golden-tipped cooling massage applicator helps boost microcirculation and reinvigorate the eye area.
  • There is only .27 oz worth of product, but a little bit goes a long way.

I have been using this eye cream since the end of March, I can say that by now, I have been using it enough to let you know my honest opinion. When it comes to eye creams I am not too particular on what I am expecting for them to do for me in terms of getting rid of dark circles. However, I love their moisturizing effect. In my opinion, the Estee Lauder Eye Gelee is not any different from the other ones I have used, but it is the applicator that I love the most. I love the cooling effect of the applicator when applying the cream especially after leaving it in fridge overnight. I love the fact that instead of using my fingers, the applicator does the work for me. I also love the packaging. It is very travel-friendly, it small enough to fit in any purses, make up bag, and I don’t have to worry about the product spilling.

If you guys are interested in purchasing the Estee Lauder Revitalizing Supreme Eye Gelee, it is available at any Estee Lauder counters and it retails at $68 CAD and $55 USD online.

That is about it for this post, I hope you guys enjoyed reading it. Until next time!

 

Influenster Rimmel Voxbox

Hello everyone!

Thank Goodness It’s Friday!

I hope you guys are having a great day today. As for me, I am still recovering from a not-so-nice cold.

This post is about my Influenster Rimmel London voxbox. As usual here is my disclaimer: these products were sent to me by Influenster for the sole purpose of trying them and sharing my opinion.

I received the new Rimmel London Shake It Fresh Mascara and the Matte Lipstick

The Shake It Fresh mascara, according to the rimmel london website,  is clump-free, smudge-free and volumizing.  The packaging is nice and feels heavy. It comes with a bristle wand which makes it easy to apply.

My verdict – I like this mascara because it is easy to apply and non-clumping and non-smudging. The only con for me is that it is not waterproof. I prefer waterproof mascaras because they work better for me based on the fact that my eyes tear up whenever I apply mascaras and they last longer.

The second product is a matte lipstick                           DSC_0886 (2)DSC_0887 (2)

Application:  Apply smoothly. It looks a bit ashy on me, but it looks good when paired with a dark brown lip liner. In my case, I pair it with Simma brown from Wet N Wild.18578999_10154697358853207_1367835826_n

Pigmentation: very pigmented

Quality: Matte finish, smooth and very comfortable to wear. Not sure it is long lasting because I didn’t wear it for a long period of time. It does transfer a bit.

Overall, I love both the mascara and the lipstick. The question is, are they must-haves in anyone’s make up collection? No, but they are good products to try, that is why I do recommend them. Usually mascaras and lipsticks are personal, meaning what works for me may not work for others and vice versa. I’m not sure how much they cost, but I am sure that they don’t cost that much.

That is all for this post guys.  Once again, thanks for reading; until next time!
