Mail of the Week (July 3 - 8)

My prize from Tass' giveaway: After having heard so much rave about the Posie Tint, I'm happy to be able to try it for myself! Here's what Tass included in the package:

  • Benefit "That Gal" Brightening Face Primer
  • Benefit Mini Benefit Pose Tint
  • Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow

Thank you Tass! (:

Veet products to review: I was kindly given the opportunity to review some new products for Veet - just in time for summer!

  • Suprem' Essence Hair Removal Cream With velvet rose fragrance & essential oils
  • Hair Removal Cream Dry Skin Shea Butter and Lily Fragrance
  • EasyGril Ready-to-Use Wax Strips With Vitamin E & Almond -  Sensitive Formula

peta2's zombie survival pack: peta2 has a very cool campaign going on at the moment called Flesh is for Zombies. Yes, according to them, if you eat meat, you are a zombie! I think it's cute and funny, and a great way to raise awareness (:

Biotherm Aquasource sample: Biotherm Canada was offering free samples on their Facebook page some times ago, but now the offer has ended.

Dove Nutritive Therapy Nourishing Oil Care sample: Dove was offering a sample of  their new Dove with weightless Nutri-Oils on their Facebook page some times ago. Be sure to follow me on Twitter and "like" my Facebook page to be in the know for more great promotions like this one!

  1. OOhhh what a great prize- I LOVE Benefit. Probably one of my fav makeup brands!

  2. ooh, you got some fun stuff there! im interested to see how those wax strips work for you. I've tried the small packs at sally's but they don't always remove the hair. sometimes they work and sometimes they don't.

  3. Nice stuff! And you have Posietint! I hope you'll like it! :)

  4. Let me know how Posietint works out for you!

  5. Oooh, what shade of Benefit's Creaseless Cream Eye Shadow did you get?? I love the colors Skinny Jeans & Strut!

  6. I can't wait to see who wins your lovemode giveaway!! Great mail :)

  7. The Benefit prizes look fab! x

  8. Ooh, you've got quite a mail collection here! :D Congrats on winning!

  9. Wow, t'es chanceuse d'avoir gagné des produits Benefit! J'espère que tu vas faire un review de ça :)

    Moi aussi j'ai reçu l'échantillon de crème Biotherm... j'aurais aimé recevoir un mini tube au lieu du sachet de 1 ml, mais bon, c'est gratuit haha pis j'suis aussi juste contente de l'avoir enfin reçu. La poste est bin lente par chez nous. C'est à croire que tous les envois que j'attends "dorment" dans l'entrepôt de poste canada :(

  10. I've heard so many good things about Benefit's new tint! I hope you like it!

  11. Great goodies! Congrats on your prize. And I look forward to the Veet Review. I'm on Facebook now, finally, lol! I liked you, if you would like to link back I would appreciate it. Have a great weekend XOXO

  12. Ooops! I tried to like but your setting prevented me? Sorry :)

  13. I love the benefit creaseless cream shadows :)
    you got some gorgoeus things this week!! x

  14. The Benefit products look awesome!
    I quite enjoy the PETA Zombie champagne...I had a girl at work the other day lip me off about how god create animals for us to eat them...it was pretty messed up!
    I have never found a Veet hair removable cream that actually worked..I am curious if you like those ones you are going to try out!
    Great mail of the week :)

  15. La crème dépilatoire verte Veet, je l'ai, je l'aime bien! Mais je trouve que ça sent la permanente! Ça pue! haha!

  16. you should so do a review on the benefit

  17. @Jessica : I haven't tried a lot of products from Benefit and I was a little disappointed with the POREFessional which I intended to review at first, but oh well.

    @MaviDeniz: I usually don't wax and as you said, ready to use was stripes too often don't work, so I'm very curious about these new ones that have supposely been improved.

    @Pammy @Miss Tapia @Kelly: This was the product I was the most exciting about out of the bunch, but I don't know, it seems so sheer on me... I will have to get used to a cheek tint though!

    @Mandy : If I'm right, I think it's RSVP...? It's really sheer though... z=

    @Vintage Makeup : I originally planned to announce the winner in this post but I didn't have time before going camping so I will include it in my Monday post (:

    @LilyLipstick: Yey! I was very excited about Posietint (:

    @tiffyama: Thank you!!!

    @Cocovanilla : C'est comme toi, j'attends une couple depaquets depuis trèèèèèès longtemps et j'ai l'impression que je ne les verrai jamais! Ma mère m'a dit que l poste ne fonctionnait qu'à 35% par contre depuis la grève, car ils ont tellement de retard à rattraper.

    @Venus In Virgo : Oh really? That's odd, I just checked my settings and I don't have any restrictions... strange!

    @Radiant.MakeUp: It's a pretty shade (RSVP if I'm right?) but it's so sheer z=

    @TEA aka MonsterGirl : Oh yes, those Christians... I prefer not to talk about it LOL. And I remember trying various hair removal creams but they never worked, but I have tried this one this week and I'm happy with it, even though it doesn't seem to really last longer than with a razor...

    @ JosianneL1507: Oui je sais! Quand j'ai vu la senteur sur l'emballage je me suis dit "Miam!" mais non, wouach ahahahah! Bien essayé quand même =P

    @bettzy93: I don't know, it seems like everybody is talking about the tints on their blogs...

  18. Congrats on winning! I haven't tried Posietint, but their creaseless cream shadows are really nice :)

  19. yay, I hope you like them xx

  20. I'd be interested to see what you think of the VEET products, I've got one sat in my drawer and I haven't even used it yet!

  21. awesome mail goodies! i loooove the dove conditioner! i'm on my second tube of that :D

  22. I absolutely adore Posietint, it's amazing! I love wearing it on my lips as well as my cheeks :)

    Gem x

  23. love love love benefit products! and what do you think of veet? i have tried nair, but i didn't love it, so i am hesitating to try veet. thanks!


  24. Hi Gaby! That was a good promo that Dove was giving out. Gosh I'm really starting to think that I need Facebook and Twitter to qualify for some of these good promo samples through companies. I haven't used depilatories for a long long time but that's nice to see that Veet now has them in pump dispensers as well as a spatula for application. It's great timing that they sent you these products in the summertime like you said :)
    And congratulations on winning Tass' Benefit giveaway!

  25. @Rinny : I find the creaseless shadows so sheer ):

    @Tass: Absolutely! I still have to get used to using a tint but oh well! Thank you Tass =D

    @Cherry @Leigh : I have tried the depilatory creams this week and they work well, except that they stink and the results don't really last longer than with a razor.

    @ Jenny: I still have to try it, I have tons of conditioners I want to use up before trying this one.

    @Gem : It's really pretty but it shows up so sheer on me, maybe I need to get used to it though? I rarely use a tint on my cheeks.

    @ Karen Law : Hi Karen! Yes you should be on Facebook and Twitter, at leats for the promos (: These depilatory creams are nice except that they stink and the results don't last really longer than with a razor, but they are still nice to use (:
