Mail of the Week (June 6 - 10)

My prize from Imogen's giveaway: After reading so many great things about Lucas' Papaw Ointment on MakeupAlley (it's rated 4.5 out of 5), I was absolutely thrilled to win one from Imogen's giveaway, as it's an Australian product and I'm not sure if it's available here in Canada. It is supposed to be amazing for chapped lips and even for eczema... what more could I ask for? Imogen also included this cute Cadbury Caramello Koala chocolate that I let melt in the sun while I was taking pictures -_- Thank you Imogen! =D

Diane Lai products: OMG, I can't believe how fortunate I am to be able to review those products! I first heard about them when I was complaining (yes, again!) about my eczema on Twitter with Melanie when Arianne joined the conversation and suggested us to have a look at Diane Lai all natural and organic products. Then I read her amazing review, which got me even more excited, but I still couldn't bring myself to pay $45 and $34 for those moisturizers. When Diane offered to send me some "samples", I jumped at the opportunity, only to find out that she had sent me the whole line of products!

  • Fresh Daily Body Wash
  • Soothe Spot Treatment
  • Rejuvenate Daily Moisturizer

Tyenol Arthritis Pain samples (2 caplets) and mail-in rebate from LivingWell

Coupon for a free box of Triscuit Crackers

♥ Rolling In The Deep - Adele


  1. favorite song of the moment :D
    and omg, your going to love the lucas papaw ointment! its amazing for the summertime esp for mosquito bites but works wonders as a lipbalm aswell :)

  2. Wow, how nice of her to send you the entire line of products. What an exciting and pleasant surprise that must have been. :) Also, I love that song! I get shivers listening to it--have you heard Vicci Martinez's version too?

  3. What a great prize, I'm very jealous!

  4. Great mail day!! I'll have to look into the Diane Lai skincare. I'm having issues on the bridge of my nose from my sunglasses that I'm wondering is eczema? I also experience it around my nose and sometimes and down my nasolabial lines sometimes? No idea if its eczema. So frustrating!

    @PerilouslyPale : Eczema can take different forms so it can be hard to know if it's really eczema. Maybe ask your pharmacist?
