Review of the Hydrium Moisture set from Cosrx (Try Me Review Me program)

The Hydrium Moisture set from Cosrx contains all the products you need to keep your skin hydrated all summer long! The key ingredient in the Hydrium line is Pro-vitamin B5 where it helps keep skin hydrated, soft and nourished. It also helps replenish the skin’s natural barrier against the loss of moisture. 

  • The Triple Hyaluronic water wave sheet mask has a light watery texture to give the skin a refreshing and moisture look. The mask is eco-friendly made with biodegradable material! 
  • The Triple Hyaluronic Moisturizing cleanser is very gentle and creamy. A little amount goes a long way! The cleanser becomes foamy once you start lathering it on your face. It helps remove any impurities leaving the skin clean, soft, moisturized and refreshed without stripping it. It also has a beautiful light scent. It is also the only product that a scent to it.
  • The Hydrium water toner is lightweight and fast absorbent. It helps soothe my dry skin while retaining its moisture. I also love how it feels really refreshing!
  • The Triple hyaluronic moisture ampouleis a moisturizing serum that has a light consistency and is really gentle on the skin. Just using 2 drops is sufficient to get your skin supple and really hydrated. You can even combine the moisture ampoule with the enriched cream for extra hydration. This is my favourite product!
  • Lastly, the Moisture power enriched cream has a gel-cream texture with a slight thick feeling. It made my skin feel hydrated all day long with no greasy feeling.

I definitely recommend these products to those who have dry skin! If you are interested in trying these yourselves, please check out:

SkinMedica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator review

I was kindly gifted the SkinMedica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator from Les Boutiquiers Apotikaire, a local business in Montreal. I have been using it for almost 2 weeks and I love the results up to now. I have combination skin but more on the dryer side so my skin really needed this!

This lightweight hydrator smoothes your skin and helps decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In your daily AM & PM skincare routine, all you need to do is apply a small amount of the product to the face, neck or décolleté after cleansing and toning but before applying serum and moisturizer. The purpose of the hydrator is to help increase hydraluronic acid level and keep skin hydrated.

The product was easy to apply and the product absorbed nicely into the skin with no oily feeling. There is also no fragrance and it works well on all skin types. My skin felt hydrated throughout the day and night! I noticed that my skin became instantly soft and smooth.

Hydraluronic Acid (HA)

It is important to include HA in your skincare routine because it holds in moisture by keeping the skin healthy, resilient and supple. As you get older, your natural HA level decreases and your skin loses the ability to retain moisture which then causes the skin to become rough and dry and the wrinkles and fine lines will start appearing.

This particular product contains 5 different forms of HA that works together to provide smoothing results and continuous hydration throughout the day.

The downside of this product is that it falls under the upper price category ($198) but it is worth it especially it will help your skin look rejuvenated and healthy in the short and long-term!

Thank you so much to Alexandra for gifting me this lovely product! Also, check out Apotikaire’s instagram page!

Review of Fré Skincare’s 123Fré set

Fré Skincare was kind to send me their 123Fré set. It is a 3-step skincare routine to keep your skin healthy while working out!

Purify Me: it prevents breakout and irritation, removes toxins and unclogs pores. It contains small jojoba beads but it is super gentle in the skin. ⁣

Revive Me: a little goes a long way! It regenerates collagen and elasticity. It also helps reduce wrinkles and the look of aging. ⁣

Protect Me: this moisturizer is a little thick but doesn’t feel greasy at all. It left my skin feeling very soft. It also contains SPF 30 and is water resistant. ⁣

Review on Indeed labs products

Complimentary from Topbox Circle

I heard so much about hyaluronic acid in skincare products that I was excited to try these products. I also never tried anything from Indeed Labs before but heard about them in the beauty community so I was even more ecstatic! I received 3 skincare products to review courtesy of Topbox Circle: Hydration booster, Hydraluron intense moisture lotion and Hydraluron moisture serum.

I have included these 3 products into my AM & PM skincare routine in the past week and a half and I love the results up to now. I have combination skin but mostly on the dry side.

1) Hydration Booster: I love the dropper. The product has a light and thin consistency that absorbs nicely into the skin without feeling sticky. It really made my skin feel hydrated. I also used it with the intense moisture lotion.

2) Intense moisture lotion: A little product goes a long way and I like that it includes a pump so not too much comes out. The consistency is a little thick but does not feel oily or too heavy. It leaves my skin feeling moisturized all day. I have used this before applying foundation and it made my skin look very smooth without looking cakey.

3) Hydraluron moisture serum: This might be the best serum I ever tried. It is clear and it has a gel-like feeling but it does feel sticky or oily at all. A little pea size amount is all you need and it absorbs quickly into the skin. It leaves the skin feeling really smooth and hydrated. I have also used it with the intense moisture lotion.

After using these products, my skin felt really good and really hydrated! I love that these products are silicone-free, oil-free, phthalate-free, sulfate-free, fragrance-free, colourant-free, no dyes and mineral oil-free!⁣ I also love the vibrant packaging!

Overall, I recommend these products to those who have dry skin. Thank you again Topbox Circle for sending me these. Now that I have tested these products, I am really interested in trying out other products from Indeed labs!

My First Pixi Beauty PR package – Skintreats Review

I received a beautiful package from Pixi Beauty from their Skintreats collection about a month ago. First of all, I was super excited when I received this package! I have been a fan of Pixi beauty for a few years and I love everything about the brand from their packaging and how it is affordable. I first discovered the brand when I attended Ipsy’s Generation Beauty in Toronto in 2016. I have tried a few of their makeup products but so not much of their skin care line. Ever since that event, it was so hard to find the brand in my local stores.

Now, after a few weeks of trying each product from the Skintreats package, I want to talk about each one of them.

  1. DetoxifEYE: These are depuffing under eye patches. They kept my under eyes really hydrated and depuffed making me look more alive. Especially, I don’t get enough sleep with the little one! I also love that it included a little spatula.
  2. Glow Glycolic Boost Sheet Masks (3 sheets): I love sheet masks! They are a way for me to relax. These particular ones are infused with glycolic acid, ginseng and witch hazel. It made my skin feel really hydrated and smooth making it look more healthier.
  3. Peel & Polish: This product is amazing! It has a sugar-like texture that really deep cleans and exfoliates the skin by removing dead skin cells leaving the skin feeling really soft and smooth.
  4. T-Zone Peel-off Mask: I have an oily t-zone and this product is perfect for it. It helps draw out the oil and impurities making this area smooth and the pores look smaller.
  5. Glow Mud mask: I tried a sample of this in the past and I love it! It helps with those who have oily skin, breakouts and helps draw out dirt. After using it for a while, it leaves the skin looking more clear, bright and healthier.
  6. Lastly, it included a really soft towel for patting down the skin after rinsing out the products.

I just want to thank Pixi Beauty for sending me these lovely products to review. I love taking care of my skin and I love discovering new products! If you live in Canada and are interested in purchasing some Pixi products, you can check out Shopper Drug Mart/Pharmaprix or even the Pixi website for more information.

Biotherm’s Blue Therapy Red Algae Uplift review

I received a full-size (50 ml) Biotherm’s Blue Therapy Red Algae uplift for free from Topbox Circle for reviewing purposes. I have been using this firming cream for the past week and I am already loving it! Biotherm is considered as being a high-end skincare brand and I got really excited that I got chosen to review this product especially that they sent a full-size product worth $89 CAD (AHH!) !

I use this cream it in the morning and at night on my face and neck (as directed on the bottle). A small amount is all you need! This face cream is a rosy color cream and it feels very silky. It quickly absorbs into the skin leaving my really dry skin feeling smooth and hydrated. I currently do not have any wrinkles but this cream will help delay them from coming. I also love the scent! My skin will look forever young! The product is a bit pricey but it is worth every penny. I definitely recommend this product to those who have dry skin, sign of aging and to those who wants to maintain the
