    J'y est mis une review sur un produit qui ressemble au moroccanoil en beaucoup plus abordable :)Je pense que sa peut t'intéressé il est en vente au pharmaprix.

  10. I got the September 2011 issue of Glamour as well :)

  11. always wanted to try tea tree products :)


  12. I've used the blemish stick and face wash all the time but for some reason it's hard to find at the shops so I stopped using/purchasing Thursday Plantation. But it is amazing it really cleared up my skin and it's very gentle on the skin too! And it's Aussie made, woohoo! :D I love trialing out products, you'll have a lot of fun with these ones you received! X

  13. @BreezeyBee : Yes I've been told that and I've heard about it on many blogs, I'm very curious even though I rarely get blemishes anyway.

    @London's-beauty : I'm glad you like these posts, thanks! =D

    @ Anya : Yes it does have a strong smell! I didn't know what to expect but it has a strong herbal smell. It's OK though, it could have been worse!

    @ JENNIFER JEHANNÉ HUA : Oooh I'm glad you liked those products! I just started using them yesterday and I don't think I have ever used a foaming face wash before, but I really love this one so far, it feels so gentle on my dry skin thanks to the chamomille in it (:

  14. I'd be careful with the tea tree products, it might be very harsh/drying for your exzema.

  15. @Arezu: Really? I've been told that tea tree Tea tree oil can be a very practical choice for treating eczema as it preventing infection, has some anti-inflammatory and anti-itch properties. It is supposed to be great in reducing flare ups and cutting down on the irritation and discomfort! Now you got me worried...

  16. Thanks for the reply back Gaby, to be honest I'm not 100% sure if my info is correct, but I remember reading around that tea tree is great for acne, but it dries your skin out. So based on that I thought that if it dried your skin out it would flare up your exzema.

    I remember reading that you haven't found your HG product with your exzema, so I didn't want you to be using something that I thought would accentuate and irritate your skin - but it sounds like you did more research than me! lol

    I think you're good, because like I said i's just something I heard, I hope it works for you though! I would really like to read about it.

  17. Still champion of the best mail....!

  18. I love "mail of the week". If only I was the one receiving the mail.... hahaha :)
    Thank you for the review :)

  19. Hi! Enjoy reading Glamour!:D I should get a copy soon - my subscription ended last month.

    As for the Pink Dandy perfume oil, maybe the staying power has something to do with the scent that I got? Mine would last for 3-4hours but I think this will be better as a scent base for a body mist or a designer perfume.

    Happy Sunday, Gaby!:D

  20. yes tea tree oil is goood stuff ONLY if its made with good ingredient and Thursday Plantation is the only brand of tea tree I use!! not like body shop's tea tree oil which is made with alcohol, if used on top of acne it will make it WORST due to irritation =S but this thursday plantation is just LOVE =] specially if u use it after you pop a pimple or got a cut or something it will help it heal faster like over night and definitely help kill all bacteria since it's an antiseptic =] been using their tea tree oil for years (not in ur goodies... never tried these goodies .. just tried the oil =P)


  21. J'aime bien les produits a l'huile de theier! Ca a une odeur caracteristique, par contre. Mais jaime bien, ca desinfecte :)

  22. I heard Tea Tree is best for treating dark spots, blemishes and great for oily skin. I can't wait for the review.
