5 Beauty Products I've Finished - May 2013

5 Beauty Products, I've Finished. - May 2013

 Vera Wang; Preppy Princess:
I was given this as a Christmas present last year. I've always loved Vera Wang, and trying Preppy Princess for the first time, was exciting. This smells exactly how you'd imagine a preppy girl smelling- one of those girls who shops at the high end store, maybe upper-middle class, gets good grades in school, hold hands with her boyfriend at the park. It's a fresh scent, not obnoxiously flowery or sweet- it's young and innocent but suitable for a woman of all ages.

Swisspers; Facial Cleaning Wipes.
I've tried the other Swisspers wipes before (green tea and cucumber) but this one is the best in terms of the smell. I really like the fresh scent. Unlike many other wipes I've tried, Swisspers is perfect for me, coz the wipes are not too soggy - they just have the right amount of the cleansing stuff on it. And it does remove make up pretty well too! This is a great thing to use when you're just lazy to remove your make up at night. Plus, I never find a need to apply moisturiser after using this. 

Maybelline New York: Fit Me Pressed Powder (Sand Beige)
The package is very inviting, it's small but cute. The only thing I hated about the package, was that you had to keep flipping the powder up, just to use the mirror. Which would leave me covered in powder, if I didn't clean it up. Besides that, the formula was very lightweight, didnt make my face, look cakey or patchy. Blends very well with my foundation and other beauty products I use. 

Australis : Eyeshadow Primer.
FINALLY!!! I have been looking high and low for something to stop my oily lids from gathering eyeshadow in the creases and ruining my hard work! I decided to give this a go, despite it being considered a budget brand and I was excited to find that it does its job to perfection. I have worn this almost everyday for 8 hours with no fading whatsoever, just a dab on each lid, gently massage it in. Eyeshadow will not budge. I also have sensitive eyes and this is gentle as can be! Packaging is super cute, I love how Australis make all their products look alike (MAC inspiration?) Hot pink bottle with a black lid and doe foot applicator. 
Maybelline New York: Dream LUMI Touch. Highlighting Concealer.
this product is amazing. I used it every single day. It was easy to apply and looked amazing blended in. I used it under my eyes, brow bone, down my nose and a little on my chin. Even though it says "concealer" it looked more like a bright highlighter. To be honest, I truly felt like I could pull off Kim Kardashian's  hight light / contour look. The texture was very creamy and was quick to dry, so you have to be super quick to blend into the skin. It didn't look cakey or to light for my skin. It was perfect shade to lighten dark areas and make my features stand out.

Review: Biore Skin Care

Products I Got Sent From Biore. Beauty Panel.

Bioré Daily Deep Pore Cleansing Wipes
Bioré Daily Deep Pore Cleansing Wipes are ideal for on-the-go cleansing. They are textured and provide gentle exfoliating action that deep cleans down to the pores. They remove oil, dirt, and make-up to reveal clean and healthy looking skin.

I found these cleansing wipes to be quite good. The smell is also a little strong so I used these only at night time, for a quick lazy clean. They removed all my makeup in a few swipes, including all my mascara and eyeliner-a great job for a wipe. It did leave my face feeling a little bit to wet after I used them, but was defiantly a quick dry though.

Bioré Nourish Moisture Lotion SPF 15
Bioré Nourish Moisture Lotion SPF 15 features moisture-binding ingredients to keep skin nourished all day long. Containing antioxidant-rich green tea, vitamins A, C, and E, as well as yellow poppy, rose hip, chamomile, and aloe, the lotion helps skin to feel soothed, moisturised and nourished. The formula is dermatologist tested, non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic, and oil

This moisturizer is hydrating and was lovely to use. The pump dispenser was handy and the formula was suitable for my combination skin. it also gave my skin some glow and made my face seem more radiant and very smooth. It didnt make my skin go flaky, like most moisturizer do. It has a pleasant scent and sinks into my skin nicely. It's great that it has the added bonus of spf 15. Really loved this product, i will most likely buy this.

Bioré Daily Detoxify Scrub

Bioré Daily Detoxify Scrub is infused with soothing and refreshing aloe, rosemary, chamomile and pomegranate. The scrub contains two spherical beads that provide effective exfoliation to remove toxins from the skin’s surface and reveal a fresh glow everyday without damaging the skin. Soap-free.

This is a great cleanser and scrub. I find that it has just the right exfoliation and texture, not to gentle but not like sandpaper. The smell is quite light but fruity (I think thats the pomegranate in it). You don't need to much to get a good lather and scrub going and it washes off easily with water. I also find it is not drying at all on my skin.

Bioré Release Steam Activated Cleanser

Bioré Release Steam Activated Cleanser with SteamActiv beads is specially formulated to harness the pore-opening power of steam from the shower to penetrate deeply into pores, locking onto dirt, oil and make-up then washing it away to leave skin feeling fresh and cleaning daily all day long. The formula is enriched with aloe vera to soften and purify, it also energises with a cooling mint extract to stimulate the senses. Green tea leaf extract oils provide powerful antioxidant protection and detoxifying benefits. Cleanser is soap-free, sulphate free, paraben-free and non-pore clogging.

After using this product each night in the shower, I have found my skin to feel very refreshed and soft. This product does a good job a purifying your skin, providing you have some steam in your shower. You can feel it working on your skin once you have worked it in. I like to leave it on for a minute, and then wash it off. It did not cause pimples for my either. A great facial cleanser.
