Mail of the Week (April 18 - 22)

Beautisol Need I Glow More? Face Self-Tanner for Normal-Dry-Sensitive Skin Types sample: I've been very kindly given the opportunity to try this self-tanner and even if I normally don't fake tan, what got me really interested in this product is that it's the first ever skin-type-specific face self-tanning lotion. They have a formula for dry and sensitive skin (like mine), as well as one for oily or acneic skin. Hopefully I won't look like a ghost this summer?

 Isn't the cutest bath glove?

hydraSense Dolphins Club Welcome Kit: A while ago, I signed up for hydraSense Dolphins Club as I was suffering from nasal congestion (and I still do sometimes), and I totally forgot about it. I was surprised to finally receive my Welcome Kit this week! Here's what was included:

  • Cute bath gloves
  • Easydose Hydrating Nasal Care sample
  • Facial tissue samples
  • coupons for hydraSense products, as well as Claritin, Coppertone and Dr Schools products

Earthen Instant Peel: I have seen some posts about this product and the results seriously blown me away, so when I was offered to try it, of course I couldn't say no!

Benefit The POREfessional PRO Balm: I was lucky enough to win Christine's giveaway, and I'm excited to give this a try as I have huge pores. Not to mention that I have never used a Benefit product before!

Quickly minimize the appearance of pores! Apply this silky, lightweight balm for translucent pore coverage and smoother-than-smooth skin. Pores...now you see 'em, now you don't! Complements all skin tones.

Thank you Christine! You have such a nice handwritting!

My prize from Rae's giveaway: Who doesn't love stealing their boyfriend's shower stuff? I think these products always smell so fresh! Here's what I won:

  • Dove Men+ Care Sensitive Clean Body and Face Wash
  • Dove Men+ Care Active Clean Dual Sided Shower Tool 

I will be kind and probably give the shower gel to my boyfriend, but I can't wait to use the shower tool! Thanks Rae!


  1. The self tanner looks interesting. I've tried both Jergens and Dove gradual self tanners but neither really did anything. And the bath gloves are adorable!

  2. yay!! glad to hear the package arrived okay :) hope you love it! x

  3. That facial self-tanner sounds great. I find that so many tend to break me out a couple days after I apply them. I'm interested to see how you like it!

  4. I see Starburst! Love 'em! Nice mail goodies as always. :P

  5. I'm getting sent the Beautisol Face Tanner too and can hardly wait to try it!

  6. the Earthen Instant Peel looks interesting to try...
    cute dolphins

  7. I'm intrigued by the facial tan product. I look forward to hearing how you get on with it.

  8. Great mail :D. I want to see how that tanner works & looks on you! hehe

  9. @Rinny: I have tried Jergens gradual self tanner (for face) but it didn't seem to work back then, I will have to give it another try though. I keep hearing great things about Beautisol and I have to say, so far, I'm impressed! I'm so pale so even a hint of a tan makes me happy (=

    @christine: Yey, I can't wait to try it! Thanks Christine =D

    @Jessica: I never had problems with facial self tanners so far but I have to say I'm not a regular user. I love this one from Beautisol though!

    @Pammy: Yes Starburst are yummy! That was quite an unexpected but sweet touch ^^

    @Vintage Makeup: I have yet to use them (=

    @Tracy@Beauty Reflections : I love it so far, I hope it will work for you too!

    @CAMILLA: I can't wait to try it, I've seen so many amazing results, I couldn't believe it!

  15. Ooh, looks like you have a bunch of fun things to play with! I'm especially curious about the nasal congestion kit and the self tanner... I have dry/sensitive skin, too, and I feel like it's a combination that isn't often catered to in the makeup world.

  16. i am having a giveaway on my blog, that is perfect for spring&summer! a RAD BIKINI by a young Mexican designeer! check it out, you wont be disappointed ♥ i promise!

    @petitechouxx: Pour l'instant, il n'a pas l'air de faire grand chose ahah mais je vais continuer à l'utiliser, on verra!

    @Sari : I was very surprised when I was offered to try this self-tanner for dry skin. I usually don't use self-tanner as I don't like to skip lotion, but this one doesn't dry me out without being greasy. It's amazing!

    @Carolina: Thanks, I'll check it out!

    @Mara : Il va vraiment falloir que je me décide à commander du ELF!

    @Cocovanilla : J'aime beaucoup le self-tanner (=

    @Amélie : Quoi c'est drôle ça, j'habite à Ste-Thérèse, à la limite de Blainville! J'ai pas la chance de sortir souvent à Montréal par contre, il y a toujours des problèmes de lift )=
