Holy smokes, I certainly took my sweet time finishing this post -_-;;; But without further ado, this is a post that condenses some of the reviews I've already posted about here :) So blog readers, this video will be nothing new to you ^_^ But I do have Pros/Cons list for each item, which I didn't have in my blog reviews so if you like, do take a gander. Or just watch to hear me completely butcher the word "Laneige" -_____-
Vitacreme B12 (see below)
Sasatinnie Dolly Lip Smoothie - Raspberry
NYC Liquid Lip Shine - Fashion Avenue Fuchsia
Boscia Enlivening Amino-AG Eye Treatment (see below)
Purchased at: on Sasa ($25.60) and BonjourHK ($11.50) <-- I'm about to throw a cat fit because I paid $17.50 for mine (still a really good price) but $11.50!??! GAHHHHH SO CHEAP! I have NEVER seen VB12 for this price....if BonjourHK weren't a registered company that I've bought from before, I'd think it was a fake ><!
Either way, I obviously don't really recommend Sasa but BonjourHK tends to sell out really fast and with their (I kid you not) SHITTY web design (there's no request restock), it can get hard to get your paws on the more popular items.
Description: See website, it's quite long.
Scent: A delicate baby powder scent. Very mild and pleasant.
Texture: Smooth, creamy, absorbs without residue. If you squeeze out too much at once, it takes a few minutes of massaging to get it all absorbed into your skin though.
Overall: As I said in the video, I like this product quite a bit. I've been using it for several months now and while I wouldn't say this is a miracle worker, it seems to have helped my skin's texture smooth out. I don't think it does that much for redness imho but it definitely helps in the texture department. It's very gentle, I've never broken out from it, smells nice, seems to work and the price isn't all that bad in my opinion :) I would recommend this for people who want to smooth out their skin texture and have a brighter complexion. This is a very popular item among bloggers and while everyone's skin is different, I would say I have yet to see a review that hates on this item~ I personally have used it every night for 5 months now and am on my second tube.
Fyi, you need to massage this into your face in little circle motions to "enhance the effects." I don't know how much enhancing massaging does but might as well right :)? Remember to always massage up and out.
Boscia Enlivening Amino-AG Eye Treatment
Purchased at: N/A. From a sample bag Julie (PDXbeautiful) sent me :)!! But it retails at $38 at Sephora and Boscia.
A silky gel-cream that nourishes and firms while diminishing puffiness and dark circles around the eye area.
• Alanyl Glutamine, an amino acid that provide moisture-retaining benefits, help repair and prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
• Coix Seed acts as an anti-inflammatory, and helps minimize puffiness.
• Tocopherol-Vitamin E, derived from soybeans, promotes circulation to diminish under-eye dark circles.
• Jujube Fruit helps accelerate cell renewal and smooth the appearance of fine lines.
• Jojoba Leaf, a powerful antioxidant, combats free radical damage while it nourishes and protects skin to prevent premature aging, and Willowherb, a unique anti-irritant, helps to calm skin inflammation and reduce visible redness and irritation.
Scent: Essentially scentless.
Texture: Light, silky, and cool gel. Absorbs quickly without residue. Feels good as you massage it on your orbital bone, though I have doubts whether it feels goods because of the massaging or the product.
Overall: Not recommended. I don't have any significant complaints but I swear it doesn't do anything :\ I don't have wrinkles but as for dark circles and puffiness....no. Not so I have noticed anyway; they were definitely still present in the video xD
And that's all :D Btw I'm glad there was so much enthusiasm over the last post ^_^ Glad to know I am not alone in my constant chocolate cravings!
