I normally don’t go out on weekends (you all know that) but yesterday I had to accompany Roxanne to pick up her Christmas tree. We had lunch and dropped by Healthy Options ‘cos I ran out of my cleansing oil, eye gel, and toner.
As usual I went overkill.
If you remember I hauled in Healthy Options a few months ago and among all the products that I hauled at that time these are the ones that I liked (that I ran out of).
Derma E Nourishing Rose Cleansing Oil
Derma E Anti-Wrinkle Cleanser
Derma E Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream
Derma E Anti-Wrinkle Toner
I decided to re-purchase these because it’s good and my skin loves it. My skin looks so flawless that every time I put on my makeup my makeup looks flawless too because of a good base underneath the makeup. I’m not sure if I am making sense but that’s the best way I can explain it. What I mean is if you have good and flawless skin for sure your makeup will look good. Meaning your makeup will stick to your face well, and won’t come out blotchy and you will look dewy. You know what I mean. To cut the long story short these products deserve a re-purchase. lol!
After I got what I went there for Roxanne and I made kalikut their new stuff. Andalou Naturals have new packaging and they have some new products that I couldn’t go home without.
My favorite hand soap, the French brand A La Maison de Provence, has new body wash and I kinda went crazy!
Altho’ I don’t need body lotion (‘cos I have a lot in stock yet) I found this brand Scentuals Natural & Organic Skin Care. They only have 2 scents available of their body lotion and I really, really love the scents. So, of course it went straight to my basket.
I’m telling you Roxanne & I sniffed everything there! lols. We were like 2 crazy school girls. Sniffing and giggling.
So, here they are.
Andalou Naturals Beauty Balm (BB Cream)
Like I said in my past posts I have been using BB creams lately instead of foundation. I want my make up to look light and will look like I am not wearing make up at all.
I want to try this! It has vit. C and spf 30. It also eliminates any hyper pigmentation (which I have a lot). I’m crossing my fingers, I hope this is good. I’ll post a review soon. If I can’t post a review and I will re-purchase this then you know I like it!
“Fruit stem cell complex and vit. C are the stars of this multi-benefit balm providing broad spectrum protection with a natural, sheer mineral tint for flawless coverage”
Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Color+Correct (CC cream)
I really don’t know the difference between BB cream and CC cream. This will be my first time to use CC cream.
“The first CC cream with alpine rose stem cells. Provides soft, sheer mineral coverage with essential hydration and proven broad spectrum sun protection for a flawless looking complexion”
Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Moroccan Beauty Oil
Actually, Roxanne made me buy this. She was all over this product because it smells so good and she said the minute you apply the oil it dries quickly.
“A sensory experience. This silky, lightweight beauty oil, with alpine rose stem cells delivers dermal vitality to soothe and nourish sensitive skin as argan oil and pomegranate oils, rich in tannins and polyphenols, uplift tone and deeply moisturize for a flawless looking complexion”
Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Cleansing Foam
I used Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses toner before and I really liked it. I decided to try their cleansing foam (cos the packaging is nice)(lols). And by the way, I used this last night and I kinda like it. It’s very moisturizing and hydrating. It didn’t leave my skin dry and it removed all my makeup. Even my hard to remove mascara!
“The refreshing rosewater foam, with alpine rose stem cells, loosens and sweeps away make-up, impurities, and dull, dry surface cells as pomegranate uplifts tone and hyaluronic acid and aloe vera help revive skin’s moisture barrier for a flawless looking complexion”
Andalou Naturals Argan Oil+C Natural Glow
I picked this up (the packaging is also nice) (lol) and it looks legit to me. Meaning how can you go wrong with argan oil + vit. C? Right? And you can also use this on your hair.
“Fruit stem cell complex and vit. C blended with organic argan oil, rich in omega 3-6-9 fatty acids and vit. E, provides a potent portfolio to deeply nourish and condition skin and hair”
Now, here are the A la Maison de Provence body wash that I picked up. If you have been reading my blog long enough you know that this is my favorite hand soap brand. This is what I put in the bathroom of my kids and in my bathroom, too. I basically have all their scents in stock (at all times) ‘cos we go through this a lot. I was so shocked and happy when I saw that they have body wash. I don’t know if this is a new product or Healthy Options just carry them only now. I love this because, A. it smells soooo good. It smells so French. I love the smell of Paris. There is something in the air there that I love. No other place beats the smell of Paris. And this, for me, is Paris in a bottle, and B. it is so cheap.
I found a new scent of their hand wash that I don’t have yet. So, let’s start with that.
A La Maison de Provence Yuzu Lime
What I have in my bathroom now is Citrus Blossom scent and I super love it (you know I love citrus scent). It is a sweet citrus scent. The Yuzu Lime is also citrus scent but not the sweet kind. It has a distinct citrus scent that I like. It smells fresh, clean and lime all together.
Yuzu Lime originated in Korea and was introduced to China and Japan. But it has been reported that Yuzu Lime are already grown in some parts in the U.S.
A La Maison de Provence Body Wash
I an not going to describe their individual scents. All I can say is that I love all these scents. And you just have to take my word for it. (lol).
Coconut Noix de Coco
Fresh Sea Salt
It is not only their scents that I like. This is organic and has olive and argan oil that makes it ultra moisturizing. For both the hand soap and the body wash.
Scentuals Natural & Organic Skin Care
“Get into the Holiday Spirit with the enticing scent of Gingerbread Latte. This ultra moisturizing lotion is enriched with nourishing avocado oil and scented with spicy ginger and sweet sugar to have your skin feeling and smelling amazing”
Did you hear that?
When I smelled this I told Roxanne right away: “smell this Rox, smell this Rox!!!” and we both went crazy. So, if you see me around and I smell like ginger bread latte this holidays, then you know why. (lol)
“Embrace the holiday season with the invigorating scent of Fresh Evergreen. This ultra moisturizing lotion is enriched with nourishing organic argan and avocado oils. Scented with pure essential oils of fir needle and bergamo, you’ll revive your senses while pampering your skin”
This one smells like freshly cut christmas tree. You will smell like a walking Christmas tree! (lol) Seriously, you know that scent when you have a fresh Christmas tree in your house and your house smells like Christmas? This is that scent. It smells like winter fresh air. Super love this too.
I also picked up Derma E Anti-wrinkle Treatment Oil (which I haven’t tried yet)
Derma E Anti-Wrinkle Treatment Oil
I tried this last night. It doesn’t have a scent but when I applied it on my face the oil dried up after a few minutes. I can’t review this yet since I have only used it once.
The last but not the least.
Aura Cacia Pure Solutions Mist
I always buy Aura Cacia essential oils. My favorite is their Tea Tree oil (Claudia has all their essential oils. She wants to do her own concoction)(lol). This is the only product that can dry up my break outs over night. That’s why I must have this always. In fact I have to buy 2 bottles always. 1 for my bathroom and 1 for my vanity table.
Beside the essential oils Roxanne and I saw this small tin spray cans and we were wondering what it was (I have never seen these before). So, we look at it and started smelling all the scents.
Right away (as in ASAP) Roxanne took this and told me: “this one, you need this. Bring this anywhere you go. Please.”
Aura Cacia Panic Button Essential Solutions Mist
relax, stay calm
“Calm yourself with this blend of relaxing lavender, centering neroli and focusing petitgrain to relax, calm fears and keep a level head. No to need to hit the panic button!”
OMG. I so f***** need this in my life.
Roxanne knows I’m so panicky, and always taranta and get stressed over small things. Of course, I picked it up! Roxanne’s right. I freaking need this in my life. You just spray it around you (not straight to your face) and you stay relax and calm.
I should have picked up 2 cans. One for my bag and one for my room.
The other scents are:
Chill Pill Essential Solutions Mist
Simmer down & create harmony
Chill out with this blend of calming lavender, refreshing citrus and balancing patchouli to diffuse anger, quiet arguments and create harmony. Don’t let road rage or conflict get the best of you – just chill…
Pep Talk Essential Solutions Mist
motivate & inspire positive thinking
Put some pep in your step with this blend of spicy cardamom, invigorating peppermint and energizing citrus to clear the cobwebs, inspire decision making and dissipate the doldrums. Perk up with Pep Talk!
I seriously think we all need the 3 spray cans in our lives.
I am ready for the Holidays people! I smell like Christmas and I am relax and calm! hahahaha
