Mail of the Week (September 19 - 23)

My prize from Heidi's giveaway: I'm glad I can finally stop worrying whether I would receive this or not as when Heidi tried to post the package, it would also come back to her front door! Look at how everything was wrapped, doesn't it feel just like Christmas? I was amazed to see everything she included in the package:

  • ELF Hypershine Lip Gloss Collection
  • ELF Shimmer Lip Gloss Collection
  • ELF Brightening Eye Color in Day 2 Night
  • ELF Brightening Eye Color in Butternut
  • ELF Studio Single Eyeshadow in Butter Cream
  • Hard Candy Fox in a Box in Spicy & Sweet
  • Large Black Z Palette

I'm thrilled to play with everything as I have never tried anything from ELF and Hard Candy before (not to mention they are cruelty-free)! Thank you so much Heidi!

EnvyDerm Lash Growth and Conditioning Volume Mascara: I have never used a mascara designed to improve lash growth, and I was thrilled to be given this opportunity. This mascara is is claimed to instantly increase lash volume, definition and curl while promoting growth, length and thickness with continued use. Oh and have you ever tried a mascara infused with Moroccan Argan Oil? How awesome is that? I'll keep you updated!

Burberry Body Fragrance sample: Some times ago, Burberry were offering a trial size of the new fragrance Burberry Body on their Facebook page. Now I'm not sure if Burberry tests their products on animals (I bet they do) but they do promote fur, which I completely didn't think about before ordering this sample. It smells OK, but it's not really my kind of fragrance anyway.

Made From Earth products: I was sent some Aloe products from Made From Earth to help my eczema - I can't wait to see the results! Made From Earth products are organic, natural, vegan and cruelty-free!

  • Aloe & Jojoba Creme Therapy
  • Pure Aloe Vera Skin Treatment
  • Lemongras Tea Soap

Lara Beauty Anti-Aging Skin Care products for sensitive skin: Lara Beauty products are fragrance free, hypoallergenic and paraben free, and they aren't tested on animals. I'm still not sure if I should describe my skin as sensitive because of eczema, but I figured out I had nothing to lose by trying these products. I was sent the complete line of products:

  • Conditioning Cleanser for Sensitive Skin
  • Polishing Microderm Abrasion for Sensitive Skin
  • Revitalizing Daily Toner for Sensitive Skin
  • Anti-Aging Daily Therapy for Sensitive Skin

    Nope I haven't tried any mascara with Argan Oil but Argan Oil seems to be the hype product these days especially with hair. I'm looking forward to reading your review of it (although I think you have lovely eyelashes to begin with!)
    That's great that you get to try out new skincare products from Made from Earth and Lara :) It'd be interesting to read what your favourite HG skincare products are so far since you've been lucky to try so many brands. Do you have any HG skincare products ?

  13. @Ms Bubu: Oui j'ai vu ça sur certains blogs! Pas grave, au moins je n'ai pas reçu seulement un échantillon style carte postal. Ce n'est pas trop mon genre de parfum de toutes façons z=

    @Karen Law: HI Karen! I'm so thrilled to finally get to try some ELF and Hard Candy products! I'm absolutely in LOVE with Fox in a Box, it's soooo gorgeous! I don't know why you say I have lovely eyelashes, they are super short, straight and invisible ahah! No I don't really have any HG skincare products because even if I did, I wouldn't be able to stop experiencing with new products. I guess that's the purpose of blogging to start with?

    @aly7 : Thanks hun!

    @ For The Fierce: Well most of them are super sheer so I gave them to friends and family but some other are very pretty. They are still great for only $1!

  14. Hard Candy est "cruelty free"? yay en plus c'est pas cher au Wal Mart!
