Mail of the Week (January 24 - 28)

My prize from Softlips Canada Facebook sweepstake: I was one of the 5 lucky winner of  a Softlips Sweet Ravishing Raspberry Moisturizing Lip Balm! It smells great, like real raspberry, not a cheap chemical scent. I'm not sure if I will be able to use it though because I still don't know which ingredient exactly makes my lips react (I get rashes and my lips burn). So far, I've stuck to natural lipbalms just to be sure, but I'm missing on some many great lipbalms because of this!

Coupons from TRESemmé: A while back ago, I filled out a survey on TRESemmé products and they said the reward would be $5 coupons. I guess I didn't understand because I was expecting a $5 coupon to use on any product, but no, I received three coupons to use on three different products! I'm a little disappointed because I'm not sure I will use them )=


  1. omg, i love soft lips! my fav is the coconut cream!


  2. the same thing happens to me too!!! that's so weird! i did a post on lip glosses that cause my lips to react on my blog! we need to get to the bottom of what's in these glosses/balms!

    soft lips are okay with me though..

  3. Congrats! Have a great weekend XOXO

  4. Congratulations on winning!:D I hope this lip balm works for you.

  5. i really want to try tresemme!! i miss receiving mails. :C

  6. @The Girlie Blog @BEAUTIFULL: I hope I'll be able to test it out! It smells delicious!

    @Rhenicia: Really?? What I don't get is when I was younger, any lipbalm was OK, but now, I have to stick to natural ones like Burt's Bees. I'll give a try to Soft Lip though, just because it smells so nice!

    @siwing: Thanks!

    @Venus In Virgo: Thanks! You too! (=

    @Marie: Thanks! I hope it will work for me, too. It smells so great!

    @donnarence: TRESemmé is great, and so inexpensive! Why do you miss mail?

  7. Love softlips, hope it works out for you!

  8. Congrats on winning and they seem so nice and would love to try them if I ever come across them!!

  9. Congratulations on winning. I was just able to follow your blog, I just created one a couple of weeks ago, but I have been reading for ages, and I love it. I was wondering, would you follow me? I am not the type of blog that you will usually follow, I know, but I am an aspiring writer, and it would mean loads to me :)


  10. Hi there, thanks for visiting my blog. Hope you could follow me as well. Just got one TRESemmé product, their no frizz shine spray. Wish it is locally available in our place! :)

  11. @Tracy D: I hope it will, do! The scary part is always to try it LOL.

    @Dolce♥Bunny : Thanks!

    @Etienne's Journal: Thanks! I'll be sure to take a look at your blog (=

    @Justine: I haven't tried a lot of TRESemmé products except for their shampoos and dry shampoos. They are great for such a nice price (=

  12. OO softlips!! i wanna try that! i'm so a lip balm fanatic, i should really use up my remaining lip balms first before i buy any new ones :(

  13. mmm that lip balm sounds lush :) also the tresemme coupons were a bit of a farce! haha


  14. oh cool!! softlips! =D congrats on winning!

  15. Hi Gaby! Awww, I know what you mean about the Tresemme coupon. Sorry it's disappointing :( But I got the $5 off Cetaphil coupon which you shared the link with me - so thank you very much Gaby :)
    Hmmm, that's tough that you're still unsure of what ingredient(s) in lip balm may be causing you a rash/burn. I know you're not a fan of needles like me, but maybe one day you'll consider an allergy test? It might be able to identify the culprit or at least you'll know which ingredients are not causing the problem. I had an allergy test before and it wasn't bad at all.

  16. @Jenny: Me too! I have tons of open lipbalms that I really need to use up LOL!

    @kay eh tea ei.: Yes, I'm a little disappointed. But aw well, at least I got something!

    @Orla xx @petitechouxx: Thanks!

    @Karen: Yes, I guess I should really consider getting an allergy test. It drives me crazy as I'm always scared to try a new lipbalm )= I guess it's the medical ingredients that are to blame because when I use natural lipbalms, everything is fine...

  17. Love softlips!

    Congrats on winning!
