💋Shopaholic Reviews : Loccitane Rose🌹 Plum Lip Balm💋

Hello Lovelies!

Happy Holidays to everyone!🎁❄️ Hope you are all having a fabulous time 🎉.
Today I’m going to be reviewing a product i happened to buy on a whim ✨I was browsing the airport duty free since I had some time before my flight. Now I’m a big sucker for pretty 🎁packaging and let’s be honest from the displays to the brightly colored boxes; Loccitane takes the cake 🎂. 

However since it is a pricey brand I have to pass up a lot of their products 😪. This time however I was in need of a lip balm and the packaging on this one caught my eye. This particular one comes in 3 💋shades of pink, ranging from the lightest sheer pink to the bold, dark pink that I picked up. I’m don’t have the time to precariously apply lipstick on a daily basis, so a tinted lip balm that I can slick on is what I’m always on the look out for. This one fits the bill perfectly 👍🏻; it’s made with natural ingredients, has an spf of 25☀️,gives a pop of gorgeous color, is moisturizing and smells like roses🌹😍. Seriously what more can you ask for?Plus I love the packaging 💞, the soft pink cardboard box holds a metallic pink case with a gorgeous floral motif 😍. ( I’m still keeping the lip balm inside the cardboard box btw 😁). 

The color is a deep, pink and will work well with most skin tones, since it’s a balm it does wear off quickly and requires re application throughout the day.

I would highly recommend this lippy esp during winters when lips need extra tlc. Stop by your nearest Loccitane store and give this a try your lips will thank you. 😘

Until next time loves xoxo💋  

✨Shopaholic Reviews: Fade Out Eye Defense ✨

Hello Everyone!

Today we are going to talk about everyone’s favorite beauty peeve “dark circles”. Aah yes the much coveted 🐼panda/raccoon eye that we all love to hate and are forever trying to desperately conceal with a myriad of makeup and skincare hacks. 

Here’s the thing with the exception of babies👶🏻 and toddlers almost everyone of us is plagued with some degree of darkness around our eyes. For me it’s been a lifelong struggle that’s getting progressively worse with age I might add.

I have tried, raved, scoffed and tossed practically every mainstream product you can name. While most have been utter failures, some have offered various degrees of improvement, none to date have managed to rid me of my dark predicament in its entirety. 

Still being the gullible fool I am, I continue to fall for every new product that claims to brighten and lighten ✨. So here’s presenting yet another miracle in a tube 😒. The FadeOut Eye Defense Cream with SPF 25.  .

A little disclaimer here: I’ve used FadeOut products in the past with meh results so I don’t know why I bought this one 🤔.Must have been an impulse/out of desperation purchase 😳. Ok back to the efficacy of the product. I have been using it for 3 weeks now and I have to say it’s made an improvement with my under eye woes. The circles are definitely lighter though they haven’t altogether disappeared. I find I can get away with a bit of illuminator under the eyes as opposed to before when I would have to begrudgingly slather on concealer ( which I hate btw because it always creases 😡)It also has the added benefit of having SPF and anti aging properties. Texture wise it is light cream that is easily absorbed. It is not very moisturizing so you will need to follow with your regular moisturizer.

Overall I would give this product 4/5 ✨. It’s not stellar (are they ever ?😒) But it does a fairly good job so go on give it try and let me know what you think 😘

Until next time loves xoxo 💋
