Mail of the Week (April 11 - 15)

Apothecary products: The very lovely Flo from Apothecary kindly sent me some of her natural skincare products to review. Here's what I received:

  • Lip Service
  • Bright Eyes Firming Oil
  • Good Day Face Oil
  • High Five! Hand & Nail Oil

I'm very excited to try all of those products as I'm trying to include more natural beauty products in my everyday routine.

Elemis FreshSkin Softly Softly Daily Moisturiser and Face Mask Duo: I was kindly sent two products to try from the brand new Elemis skincare range for teens to twenties.

FACE atelier samples: I was lucky enough to be able to sample a few of their products, which I have never tried before. Here's what I received:
  • Ultra Loose Powder in Translucent
  • Shimmer in Burnt Copper
  • Transforming Gel
  • Lipstick in Coral Reef
  • Lip Glaze in Peach
  • Lip RX in Naked

Voda Swim Pearl Envy Push Up String Bikini: I'm absolutely thrilled to be able to review this bikini. I have never heard of this brand before but OMG, a push up bikini, really?

Sun Putty FPS 30 1/2 oz. sample jar: Sun Putty is the world's first truly natural therapeutic sunscreen. It's cruelty-free, vegan, 100% plant-based and it doesn't contain added water, alcohol or petrolatum. What's not to love? Now where is the sun so I can put this sunscreen to the test?

May issue of Cosmopolitan: This issue is only $3.99 if you wish to pick it up. I've always envied Hayley's hair color, but red is so hard to maintain! Oh and besides, that dress is totally gorgeous!


    1. Aw, you always get such lovely things to try :) I'm always wary of white swimwear in case it turns see through!

    2. cant wait for some reviews.
      Im anxious to know what the transulent powder is like.
      && hope these products all work for you :)

    3. Nice! The bikini looks really cute - I bought a bikini with a push up top from Victoria's Secret swim catalogue, but I don't think it really "pushed" anything up lol =.=

    4. I just bought the cosmo mag:)

    5. wow you got so many wonderful things!! im really curious and interested on the sun screen- it sounds amazing!! and i absolute love your white bathing suit <3

    15. @LOOK! FLYING MONKEYS! : This one is supposed to be fully lined, and at around $110, I don't fear for it to be see through.

      @ana : There's plenty of reviews coming up! I'm pretty new to translucent powders, the only one I have is from NYC but I like it.

      @Rinny: Oh really? That sucks! Victoria's Secret stuff are quite pricey though, you expect quality for the price )=

      @bettzy93 : Great! How do you like it? I haven't had the time to read it yet, I'm so behind in my magazines!

      @augustalolita @kirstyb : I haven't properly tested the sunscreen yet as there's not a lot of sun here now, but I like the texture, it feels very moisturizing (=

      @Jill-O @Christina : I love everything so far! Those products are exactly what my parched skin needed! =D

      @Anonymous: Well thank you!

      @The Make-up Fairy: I'm curious too!

      @Emma0m : I tried it on as soon as I received it, I was so excited! It seems to work for me, so well in fact that I think I could even use it as a push-up bra LOL!

      @PetitDerriere : Totally agree! I don't really tan, that's why I wanted a white bikini (=

    16. wow, i wanna try those skin care too,
