A Special Thanks


This is a quick post about the Giveaways I won.

I was especially excited to win three giveaways from fellow beauty bloggers. Last week was pretty lucky for me as I received some packages one of which was this.

Olay Professional PRO X hydra firming cream


“Like mother like daughter”. This saying is so opposite when it comes to mine and mom’s skin.

My mom has tried so many products for her dry/flaky skin. When she came across this one, she thought of giving it a try.

This is another great product from Olay.

EOS Hand Lotion


I think the EOS products have the most simple and cutest packaging. It's no fuss with cute colors and not a million letters of text and logos everywhere.




I was drawn to this product because of the packaging - not necessarily because of the cute colors and quirky shape, but more because of the practicality of it.

The bottle is shaped like a compact - flat & circular - but it's abstractly-shaped, not symmetrical (if that makes sense ;)). There's a flip-top cap at one end (which can be a bit tough to open unless you put some muscle into it), and the opening is small enough to control the amount dispensed.




With my perpetually dry hands and ragged cuticles, I always need hand lotion with me, but can never find one to fit in my tiny, flat clutches. EOS has finally solved this problem.

Texture:
The texture is thin and light, glides on silky smooth, and absorbs quickly and leaves a nice, hydrated, satin finish which I love (I hate having greasy hands for several minutes after applying hand cream.)

Scent:
The lotion comes in 2 scents: regular and cucumber.
The regular flowery scent is extremely light and barely noticeable. 

Pros:
The flip lid is secure and won't open in my purse.
Cute Packaging

Cons:
The only down side about this hand lotion is that it doesn't last long. I'd say it doesn't last more than half an hour.

Retail Price: $3.79 for 1.5 oz

I would like a lotion I could buy consistently throughout the year.

Will I repurchase: No

(The bottle can be refilled, so I will refill it with a more effective hand lotion)..oh ya!! I am smart.

Tresemme Heat Tamer Spray

I wish I could have a heat tamer thing for the Atlanta's hot weather too..The fall has started but the heat is still boiling my mind! Yes I love the summer, but I don't like the heat.


Today I am reviewing a Heat Tamer spray from tresemme which I have been using for some time now.


There's one rule when you expose your hair to heat — the hair must be protected.


This is one of the rare products that live up to its name and the hype it receives. It really competes with the high end products.

Lipstick Love I - MAC Sheen Supreme Lipsticks - Impressive/Ultra Darling/ Quite the Thing!

My favorite cosmetic is Lipstick. I love the way they give a pop of color to my face when I don't have much time for makeup.

MAC Sheen Supreme Lipsticks - These remind me of the Slimshines, MAC used to have. 

Impressive:

Color : Neutral gilded plum (as on MAC website)
This for me is my lips but better color as I have very pigmented rosey lips. Every time I wear this, I get compliments. It moisturizes my lips like a lip balm but gives them enough color that a gloss can't.

Freeman (feeling Beautiful) - Avocado & Oatmeal Facial Clay Mask

Clay mask = A HG product for Oily skin.

I have experimented with many clay masks and every time I use a new one, my mom thinks that I again had some silly fruit experiment gone wrong. :D

I have oily/combination skin and have to constantly blot throughout the day; and the summer season is proving havoc on my skin. Anyone can tell about the weather outside, looking at my skin!  It turns extremely oily in humid weather.

I thought of giving a try to this one after using different clay masks.
