Holiday season is upon us and that means we all get more occasions to primp and deck ourselves. I have been fortunate enough to receive some really wonderful and useful beauty products via Mode Media just in time for the season of parties! Here are my thoughts on the products I received - you will be seeing more beauty looks using these products in my upcoming Holiday looks!
The foundation of a dolled up look always start with the basics - good skin and luminous complexion. Although I have long way to go in that department (still get zits and break outs even in my 30s! ughh) but that doesn't mean I am immune to skin aging. I have been a Olay brand fan for long time (been using the Regenrist moisturizer as well) and their skincare products have been a huge hit with my family members too. This super smooth micro sculpting cream is very hydrating but doesn't feel oily. I have been trying this one for few days now and I can see that my skin feels softer immediately after using this. I also love the fresh, clean smell and the lightweight feel of it.
I am big lipstick lover. So naturally I love this soft matte finish lipstick from Clinique. The color 'petal' is such an ethereal pretty shade. A great color for any season and look.
This color is called 'True Royal Blue' and I have to say I have never seen such a gorgeous shade of blue! It is more on a purple side without being too loud. Perfect accessory for holiday looks. Royal is always in, right!
I don't know hoe they do it, but Demeter Fragrances always manage to get unique, luscious scents for such an affordable prices! Pistachio Ice Cream scent is just beyond yummy! I wsh computers were able to sense the smells - this one is pure e happiness in a bottle! It wil make a great Holiday gift for any female on your gift list!
L'Occitane Shea Whipped Body Cream is another one of my most favorite products in this bag! The whipped texture is air light and the soothing properties of shea butter makes my hands super soft and smooth every time I put it on!. This is onee of my bed side table regular for sure!
I am new to this brand but just one use and I can now understand why this is a favorite of Alexa Chung! Eyeko Me & My Shadow Waterproof Shadow Liner is a multitask eye product. Designed to use as an eyeshadow, this one actually works perfect for lower lash liner and a regular liner for upper lash line as well. The flat brush on one end of it is a great tool for perfecting the eye shadow every time!
I have been a long time user of tea tree oil for tackling the zits and redness around them. The natural chemicals in tea tree oils kill the bacteria and really help in soothing the skin. the Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Blemish Gel takes the amazing tea tree oil to whole another level. The gel formula makes the targeted application super easy and the compact tube is perfect to carry in the purse and during travels, so I am ready to fight the blemishes anytime anywhere!
Rita Hazan Weekly Remedy is a boon to anybody with dull, dry and damaged hair. This is the conditioner on steroids! You don't even have to sit through 5 minutes like other hair mask treatments. It is instant gratification - after shampoo, just use treatment 1 (treat) and rinse and then use treatment 2 (seal) and rinse immediately! Instant shine and luster to your hair! I used it only once (today) and you can see the shine in my upcoming outfit posts!
With the winter and snow season upon us, it is inevitable to have cold and get stuffy nose at least once a season. I believe that common cold and congestion are best treated with herbal medicines. C.O. Bigelow cold & flu soak has pure natural essential oils, including eucalyptus and peppermint, with immune-supporting extracts of willow bark, echinacea and ginger to create a comforting therapeutic soak. This homey feeling formula relieves body aches, pains and congested nasal passages. I have to say I am tempted to use it when it is really cold outside, even if I am not having any symptom of cold! A true therapeutic treat!
I have still to use Charles Worthington Volume & Bounce Thicken & Full 3D Boosting Creme. The product description says that you just need to apply a small amount of cream in your towel dried hair and softly rub it in from root to end. Then just blow dry and style as you want. It has in added heat protection and the inbuilt flexible hold leaves hair left bouncing with fullness all day without being weighed down. I love the texture of this cream and it smells really good! Can't wait to try it when I wash my hair next!
Thanks to Olay and Mode Media, I am all set for pampering myself for the Holiday Season! Which products do you think you might like the most?
Hope you all are having a wonderful day.
