Review: Nivea Daily Essentials Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes

This is the second time that I was able to try makeup remover wipes from Nivea. The first one that I tried was the Nivea 3-in-1 Daily Deep Cleansing Exfoliating Wipes. This time, I am going to give a review for the Nivea Daily Essentials Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes which I got from my May 2015 BDJ Box: Kiss Dry Goodbye!

Product Description (taken from the Nivea website):

Gently cleanse and tone the face, neck and eye area, for soft, soothed skin.

Product Description (printed on the product packaging):

NIVEA DAILY ESSENTIALS GENTLE FACIAL CLEANSING WIPES enriched with natural Almond Oil & Hydra IQ:

  • Gently cleanses, removing make-up and waterproof mascara.
  • Leaves skin feeling hydrated & soft.
  • The formula with Almond Oil is mild and nourishing and is suitable for dry and sensitive skin.

SEE AND FEEL BEAUTIFUL SKIN
The skin is gently cleanses, hydrated and soothed, looking healthy and beautiful.

Upon lifting the flap, the mild scent of the wipes is already noticeable. It smells nice but, given that this is said to be suitable for sensitive skin, this might be better if it is unscented. This is because those with sensitive skin might have some issues using products that are scented.

Event: The Introduction of eTwo at The Skin Clinic

If you are looking for an effective way to diminish your skin problems and get a safe facial rejuvenation service, The Skin Clinic is ready to provide the newest eTwo treatment.

What is eTwo?

eTwo combines the unique Sublime and Sublative applications for comprehensive facial rejuvenation in as little as a single treatment:

Sublime™ uses the elōs combination of safe and effective levels of infrared light and bi-polar radio frequency energies to remodel the deep dermal layer of the skin by stimulating new collagen growth.

Sublative™ fractionated bi-polar radio frequency technology places the heat energy effectively into the upper dermis where it can produce a significant increase in both collagen and elastin with minimal epidermal disruption.

Sublative has been shown to be an effective and safe way to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, acne scars and other skin irregularities in all skin types with minimal side effects, discomfort or downtime. It is also proven to improve mild to moderate wrinkles, red and brown spots, thus offering a complete face and body rejuvenation solution

Here is the eTwo machine which has the Sublime and Sublative handpieces:

my choice goat milk products

This is actually my second time to use My Choice products since I also got products from the said brand in a previous BDJ Box. These were the My Choice Carrot Spa Salt and the My Choice Carrot Hand and Body Lotion. This time, I will give the review for the Goat Milk variant.

First off, the review for the My Choice Goat Milk Pure Herbal Soap.

Product Description (printed on the box of the product):

my choice goat milk pure herbal soap product description

So far, this is the most unique bar soap that I have ever tried. As you can see, there are white chunks inside the bar soap. I am assuming these are chunks of goat milk.

This plastic container has also been used to mold the soap along with the goat milk chunks in it. This is to ensure that the chunks would stay in place.

Contouring is Out, Strobing is In

I was never a fan of contouring. I tried doing it but I still think that it is not for me. Well, I just found out that there is a new (but not really that new) makeup trend which I like more. It is called “strobing” .

“Strobing? What is that?”

Strobing is the opposite of contouring. Instead of using dark shades of makeup to sculpt your face, you use shimmery products to illuminate your features and give you a natural glow. To make it easier for you, it is the same as highlighting. However, with strobing, it gives the look of having luminous skin that comes from within. This makeup technique makes you look more youthful and radiant.

How did I find out about strobing? I received a newsletter email from Glamourbox about Strobing 101. Let me share it with you… 😀

Sample Room: Review of Safeguard Derma Sense Gently Cleanses Sensitive Skin Facial Cleanser

I have been using Safeguard bar soaps since I was a kid and even until now. It is our top brand in choosing which bar soap to buy whenever we do our grocery shopping. When I found out that Safeguard has released their Derma Sense product line along with body washes and facial cleansers, I knew that they would be good. Well, I was right. These products are getting good reviews online. 😀

I have tried the Safeguard Derma Sense Gently Cleanses Sensitive Skin Facial Cleanser which I got from Sample Room. By the way, the large Sample Room paper bag now have the nice printed art just like their small ones. Cute! 😉

I am lucky I was still able to get a sample of this product from Sample Room. When they initially had this in their website, I was not able to get one since a lot of people got way ahead of me until I got the In Stock: 0 status. They got restocked one day and, finally, I got mine!!! Yey! 😀

Review: FS Cosmetics Powder Blush

Since I love blushes, I got so excited when I saw the FS Cosmetics Powder Blush in Warm Chiffon in my May 2015 BDJ Box: Kiss Dry Goodbye! Another blush to try out!!! 😀

may 2015 bdj box fs cosmetics powder blush

Well, not as a blush. Read on why…

Product Description (taken from the FS Cosmetics website):

Silky-soft powder blush blends smoothly and easily for a streak-free, natural finish look.

(front and back)

fs cosmetics powder blush

Given that this is a blush, I would love to see the shade from the outside. If it has a transparent top cover, it would be better. Mirror dilemma? It could be placed underneath the powder where you flip it up to see the mirror.

When I saw the shade name, I thought that Warm Chiffon would be a rosy type of color. Well, it’s not. Upon opening the compact, I saw that the color is a medium, skin-toned like shade. I immediately thought that this would not work well as a blush. It can work for contouring.

may 2015 bdj box fs cosmetics powder blush2

With that, I think that blushes should have shades that could really be used as a blush. For me, it is kind of confusing to see blush shades that should rather be used as a contour powder.

The compact also includes a brush inside. Since this is intended to be used as a blush, I think that this is fine. However, given that the shade is not so much for that purpose, I cannot use this. I will rather go for the usual contour brushes.

Bow Sandals from Aly’s Wonderland

Just like how we ended up getting our own Tomato wallets, it was almost the same story with that of our bow sandals from Aly’s Wonderland. Haha! 😛 My friend (Caryl) saw this post in alyswonderland888’s instagram account.

11134213_442844079214670_424145816_n

She suggested that the three of us (including our other friend, Ela) get our own pairs in black color. This time, I really insisted that we get our own pairs in different colors. Oh my! It was the same chaotic and headaching discussion. *Yup, friends can get so crazy…* In the end, I won! Haha! Yey! 😛

Here’s mine!!! 😀 I got it in light blue.

It actually reminds me of the color of Cinderella’s ball gown in the movie.
