Shopaholic Reviews : Marinne Puppy🐶 Pigment Corrector Serum

Marinne Puppy is a brand i recently started following on Instagram. They are an all nutrients skincare line that targets sunspots, acne, aging, dullness and dehydration to create a brighter more translucent complexion. Created by skin treatment specialists and head chemist Sandy Tan in Cupertino CA. The company has more than 10 years of clinical research since 2006. All products are created in small batches and are free of parabens, formaldehyde and synthetic colors or fragrances.

I actually ordered the pigment corrector serum from the brand and they were kind enough to send along these generous samples of their different moisturizers which I have been wanting to try I love 💞it when brands send you large enough samples that allow for multiple uses so I can decide if the product suits my skin or not before buying the full size of the product. Those one use sachets brands think they are doing us a favor by including in our purchase? I usually toss in the bin and never buy the full size of that product 😠.

Ok back to the review: the pigment serum has a oily texture so I need only two drops at a time while it hasn’t gotten rid of the four freckles on my face courtesy of the Dubai ☀️it has over all evened out my complexion and it didn’t make me break out (plus plus ) repurchasePossibly.

Onto the samples : I received three of their moisturizer samples.

The white luminescence is meant to be used in conjunction with the pigment corrector serum it is a very concentrated cream so I only use a dab for my face and neck, the cream itself is very moisturizing, in terms of reducing pigmentation I haven’t used it long enough to comment on that aspect but I’m most certainly purchasing the full size.

The ultra moisture cream is a very light, non greasy cream perfect for combination skin types and also as a light moisturizer for summers.

The Ferulic moisturizer is an anti aging night cream which is also concentrated so I just used a dab before bedtime, again very moisturizing, no breakouts, repurchaseYes I have been looking for an anti-aging moisturizer for night time 🌙use so this will be perfect

ShopaholicBlogs Reviews: Biossance Peptide Eye gel✨

🌱Hola compańeros bloggers✨

🌱Today’s product review is about a brand that has been in the spotlight 🔦 for a while now @biossance.

🌱The company founded in Berkeley, California utilizes biotechnology to create safe, effective skincare for the skin and the environment.

🌱The star ✨ingredient featured in all their products is plant derived (their’s is derived from sugarcane). Squalene oil which is a weightless oil that instantly moisturizes the skin and locks in moisture.

🌱The eye gel contains squalene oil, Eyeseryl & Argiline to reduce dark circles and puffiness and Swiss apple🍎stem extract to brighten the under eye area.

🌱The gel itself is very light in texture, it goes on smoothly and doesn’t irritate the eyes. However since I have very dry skin under the eyes I do have to follow it up with an undereye cream since I don’t find it moisturizing enough.

🌱In terms of lightening dark circles I haven’t really noticed a significant difference 😕there. Will I continue using it maybe 🤔unless I find something better and more affordable since this is $54 for 15ml of product 💸. Have you tried this? How was your experience?

Shopaholic✨Reviews : Erzulie Cosmetics 🍃

Hola companeros blogueros❣️➡️Hello fellow bloggers 😘

Lol😀 Incase you were wondering what’s going onI’ve recently started learning Spanish so I’m trying to practice it every chance I get 😇. Anyways back to today’s blog post Today I’ll be reviewing another Etsy brand : Erzuliecosmetics🍃

So let’s start by talking a little about the brand first. Erzulie products are all handmade in small batches, are cruelty free🐰 and vegan and are non comedogenic. The brand includes skincare as well as mineral makeup made from all natural, organic ingredients. They are however not USDA certified. The products very reasonably priced and shipping was timely. You can purchase them from their Etsy store Or from their website Erzulie.

Ok let’s move on to the review. I purchased the following products from them:

🍃The hydrating quench booster I bought this thinking it was a tinted moisturizer which it is stated as. However it I found it to be more of a regular face moisturizer since it offered literally no coverage whatsoever 🙁. It is a very good moisturizer though it’s light, non greasy and is made with skin loving ingredients like: Shea oil, Glycerin, almond oil, lecithin and grape seed oil. Would I buy it again as a moisturizer maybe as a tinted moisturizer no😕.

🍃The mineral corrector so I bought this for the sole purpose of covering up my dark under eye circles. While I like the consistency it’s moisturizing and blends easily the color is not as pigmented as I would have liked. It’s more of a peach color then a darker orange/pink which works better with my skin tone. However it is made of all natural ingredients🍃like Shea butter, jojoba oil, squalene . Would I repurchase itI’m thinking maybe…😳  🍃The gel eyeliner Ok so I love eyeliner I feel it defines and enhances your eyes so I have been looking for an organic, all natural liner for a long time. This one while it doesn’t flake or dry out it’s not the richest black. However I do like the ease of application and the fact that it’s made from natural ingredients. Will I be repurchasing Maybe 🤔

So guys that was my review of @Erzuliecosmetics🍃. I hope you found it helpful Let me know in the comments if you have tried this brand and what are your favorite products from them 😘

Until next time 💋xoxo❣️

🍃Shopaholic reviews : Aztec Secret Indian Beauty Clay🍃

Hola Bunnies 🐰💕

🍃Today on the blog I will be reviewing a product that I found to be highly rated by beauty bloggers and highly reviewed on Amazon : “The Aztec Secret Indian Beauty Clay”.

🍃Consisting of 100% calcium bentonite clay it is supposed to rejuvenate, refresh and beautify your skin. Isn’t that what they all claim 😒. 🍃The clay is to be mixed with either 💦 , apple 🍎 cider vinegar or rose 🌹 water to make a thick paste which you apply leave on for 10-15 ⏲mins or till it dries and wash off. For me the mask got uncomfortably tight as it dried and to be very honest I saw no difference whatsoever in my skin post the application. 😭

👎🏻I have had way better results with my DIY masks then this . Neither did it make any difference to acne prone skin ( I made my sister try it on her breakouts). All in all I give it a big fat thumbs down 👎🏻.

🍃Have you guys tried this product? Which mask would you recommend let me know in the comments down below 😘

Until next time loves 💕

Shopaholic Remedies:  Get Rid of Pimples Super Fast!

Hello Loves! 

🌱Today I’m going to share with you guys my remedy for getting rid of the annoying, unwanted skin peeve we all end up facing :  “pimples” 😖. You know the ones i’m talking about : the red, inflamed, painful sometimes filled with icky 😷white bacteria that appear out of nowhere smack in the middle of your face😱. Right before an important event when you are all set to look like a diva👑. 

🌱We’ve all been there 😖…. I for one feel like the moment I get a pimple on my face everything else about me becomes oblivious and the only thing people around me can focus on is that one abnormal growth on me😖. 

🌱No matter how many tricks or home remedies I tried nothing would work read (toothpaste, tea tree oil, mouthwash, ice even garlic 😷). I would have to simply wait for the monstrosity to grow, take its time and sit on my face making me miserable for days. If I tried popping it or squeezing it I would be left with angry looking scars that would take months to fade. 

🌱So coming to the remedy , about two days ago I was sitting watching useless videos about DIY fails on YouTube. When I felt out of nowhere something painful above my lip. Puzzled I went into the bathroom to take a look in the mirror and to my horror I saw a red, inflamed bump starting to form on the left side of my lips 😱. Now the next day I had to be somewhere important and sporting an angry looking pimple, disguised with concealer was not the way I wanted to be. 😡

Which brings us to the remedy, I tried this the night before and the morning after as well and continued till I felt the bump recede and then vanish✨. I was thrilled honestly this was the first time ever that I had been able to prevent a pimple from forming on my face🎉. So let’s get down to the details ✨the products I used were: 

🌱Andalou Naturals Pumpkin Honey 🍯 Glyolic Mask,

🌱Alba Botanica Deep Clean Astringent

🌱Beauty Formulas Tea Tree Clarifying Blemish Gel.

🌱Start by applying the glyolic mask, making sure it covers the blemish. 🌱Let dry about 10 mins the mask will sting a bit depending on your skin type. The glyolic mask contains pumpkin enzymes and manuka honey 🍯 that slough off dead skin cells and impurities. Wash off and follow with the astringent toner. 🌱The toner consists of salicylic acid that prevents breakouts. Finally apply the blemish gel with extracts of tea tree and witch hazel helps heal existing pimples and prevents new ones from forming. 🌱So there you have it guys my tried and tested remedy for getting rid of pimples fast⚡️. How do you guys deal with breakouts? Share your remedies/tips with me right here 😘

Until next time xoxo💋.

🍃Shopaholic’s Review : Lush Mask of Magnaminty🍃

🍃Hello peeps❣

🍃It’s product review time again and this time we are reviewing my favorite product to use in the summer: face masks

🍃I apply face masks atleast 4-5 days a week in the summer🔆. While that may seem excessive to most people, during summers my skin goes into oil overdrive, mins after after I wash my face its sticky and greasy again. TMI❓😉

🍃My favorite masks from Lush are the Ayesha and the Love Lettuce💞.

🍃However both of those masks need to be refrigerated which was not an option for me as I was traveling. So I picked out the Mask of Magnaminty from the Lush store in Oxford Street. The Mask of Magnaminty is a self preserving mask, meaning it has an abundance of honey which means it’s travel friendly since it doesn’t require refrigeration❄️.

🍃The mask is primarily meant for acne prone skin and contains peppermint and China clay for a deep pore clean, aduki beans for exfoliation and vanilla to calm the skin. I just slather it on leave it for 10 mins and then rinse it of, it clears away all the oil and leaves the skin with a minty tingle. 

🍃I think it’s a good mask for freshening up the skin, that being said I don’t enjoy using it as much as I did the Love lettuce or Ayesha. With those masks I could see my skin actually glowing✨ and feeling very soft and hydrated. This mask does help with the oil factor but I didn’t really see an amazing or noticeable difference in my skin. 
🍃Will I be repurchasing this mask❓I don’t think so I’ll stick with my other Lush favorites 💞. However for traveling or hassle free storage this is a good, basic mask.
🍃What are some of your favorite Lush masks❓I would love to know 😘

🍃Until next time xoxo💋❣

🍓Shopaholic Quick Review:Han Cosmetics Powder Blush 🍓

🍓Hello Ladies ❣

🍓Welcome to a quickie product review✨

🍓I recently picked up the Hans Cosmetics Powder Blush since I had previously tried and really liked their eyeshadow single in taupe. 

🍓Since I suck at makeup, and the eyeshadow was something I could simply swipe on my eyelid and still look pretty darn awesome 😱 I decided to get their blush as well since blush is one of my everyday get ready staples.


🍓Hans blushes are made of rice powder instead of talc, and are vegan and cruelty free  🍃.

🍓The shade I chose is called Strawberry Pink. It comes in the signature Hans packaging a sleek round pot, you get about 4 grams of product for $15💰. Since you only use a little at a time, unless you are planning to rock the clown cheeks look, it will last quiet a while. 😁

🍓The color is quiet intense and you really need a swipe on the pad otherwise you will end up with startlingly pink cheeks and a lot of blending.While I’m not blown away by the color it is a nice addition to my blush collection which as of now stands at a measly two 😝. 
🍓Will I buy this again, I probably will but in a different color for sure I don’t think this particular shade is me.
🍓Have you guys tried Hans cosmetics? Which shade do you recommend?

Until next time loves xoxo💋❗️
