March empties + March favourites

I've finally used up three products this month - and since the beginning of the year! Here they are:

Avon On Duty 24 Hours Clear Protection Anti-Perspirant Deodorant: I hated it. You will see why in my upcoming review.

Freeman Goodstuff Organics Moisture Shea Butter Vitamin E Whipped Body Butter: This is LOVE. Everything is amazing about it! See my review here.

Fruits & Passion Orange Cantaloup Shower Gel: I feel like it takes forever to finish a shower gel, so I'm glad I finished one this month.

And now, onto my March favourites:

Avon Basics Extra Hydration Face Cream: I've been using it every day since I got it. It's great for winter, as it's thick (makes a great night cream, too). See my review here.

Noxzema Original Deep Cleansing Cream with Eucalyptus Oil: I still can't believe I found this product in a Dollar Store for only 2$! It leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean, not to mention this amazing fresh scent! Even my doggie noticed; he couldn't stop smelling my face the first time I used this cleanser xD See my review here.

Jessica Simpson Fancy eau de parfum spray: it's my all-time favorite fragrance, but I've found myself reaching for it more often lately (maybe because spring is in the air?)

Marcelle Minerals Powder Blush in Natural Glow: I've been sent this blush to try and review, and I've been using it every day since I got it. It instantly adds radiance to the face.

Marcelle Vita-Lip Plumping Gloss in Rio Rose: I got it at the last Marcelle/Annabelle Warehouse Sale (if I remember well). It's supposed to plump lips after a continuous use, but even if I haven't seen results so far, I like the high shine and glossy effect it delivers.

Dove Ultimate Go Fresh Energizing Grapefruit & Lemongrass Scent: I took advantage of a 2 for 5$ sale out of curiosity, and I'm glad I did! I've been wanting to try the Go Fresh products for some times now.

Meet my other love, Guimauve (it means "marshmallow" in French), she's a 3 years old gerbil:

She's busy tearing cartboard to build her "nest".

Oups, looks like she saw me xD
I think she's hungry!

And here she is! She like to go into her food jar, grab some things and go back in her house and eat them.

With my mother. Isn't she cute?


  1. I'm not a big fan of On Duty. It does not work for me at all.

  2. Congratulations on all the empties!
    I love Guimauve, she's beautiful!

  3. I'm going to Macy's today and will try to take a whiff of Fancy!:D

    ...and everything girly under the sun!

  4. aah moi aussi j'ai jamais aimé les déo de Avon, ma mere men avait commander une fois et j'ai eu de mauvaise réaction, c'etais pas beau.. Je les ai jamais fini (elle men avait acheté 2) ..

  5. Guimauve is soo cute!!! Congrats on using up some of your stuff! I find it impossible to use things up because I keep buying more! btw, love the layout!

  6. Wow, your empties are inspiring me to use stuff up! And I think we share the same taste in deodorant fragrances. :) Oh hey, in case you don't see my response to your last comment on my blog, I already swatched Minty! The pic is in this post if you want to see it. :)

    @Marie: Fancy is amazing! I hope you'll love it! Let me know if you like it or not (=

    @VaLili: Ah moi c'est juste que je trouve que ça marchait pas assez bien, et ça prend des années à sécher -_-

    @locke: Fancy is amazing! I hope it's available where you live! Let me know how you like it (=

  11. Congrats on finishing up those products!! I need to do that with mine ;p

  12. Avon is only good for their decorative cosmetics and not actually all of it... :) They can't be good at everything... :)
    I never tired j.s perfume... is it good? i feel like it smells really sweet :)

  13. how does the grapefruit and lemongrass deo smell like? :) and thanks for following! :D

  14. Thank you Gaby for letting me know about the Skin MD and how it has helped your skin along with the Avon hydrating cream. I have tried aquaphor as well as Vaseline (they're both almost the same thing) on my hands with gloves at night but my hands get kinda itchy with the gloves on :\ I'm not sure why....but I'm going to try to get rid of the stubborn dry patches on my hand. It's sooo annoying LOL
    Awww, Guimauve is sooo cute! I had a gerbil too for about three years but he passed away in February and it was sad :( Gerbils are so friendly and they're such great pets. Now it's just me and my guinea pig here.
    Way to go on finishing up products. I'm trying to finish up some of my products too before getting anything new :)

  15. Guimauve is cute! I'm having a CONTEST - I hope you'll enter! lipstickonthecup.blogspot.com

  16. @Angelique: Thank you!

    @Lipstick on the cup: I'll be checking out your contest! Thanks for letting me know!

  17. Hey Thanks for stopping bye I'm following you too! I remember when I use to use Noxzema that stuff smelled A-Mazing! And btw I have that minted Revlon Nail Polish and I love it! It's such a pretty shade you need to try it!

  18. Good work on using up those products! The new ones look fab too - I like the look of the blush powder.
    Guimauve is so cute :) x

  19. I love your little Gerbil! I had tons of them when I was a wee child...can't have them in California, sadly. I hope to see more photos of her in the future!
