Garnier Body Intuitive 7 Day Hydrating Lotion

Obtained: Gift Bag

Thoughts:

What is with products having longer and longer names these days? It’s such a mouthful! Again another delicious smelling product from Garnier. It has a fairly light consistency and feels very smooth rubbing in. It absorbs quickly and my skin definitely feels nicer after using it. Overall it’s a nice moisturiser and it smells great, there’s not much more to say on it! I do like the smell but if you’re not a fan of the generic Garnier smell then steer clear.

Would I buy Garnier Body Intuitive 7 Day Hydrating Lotion again: Yep it was very nice!

Innoxa Exhilarate Body Lotion Review

VioletLeBeauxP1070524_18636

Innoxa Exhilarate Body Lotion

Obtained: Gift bag.

Thoughts:

Innoxa make a lot of products that I like, they are very good for sensitive skin and don’t have many perfumes in them either. This is more of the same basically, it’s a nice lotion that has a thin consistency  and is absorbed very easily into the skin. A little goes a long way too so the bottle will last a very long time because it’s pretty huge. I find it does leave a little silky residue on the skin so rather than an every day moisturiser I like to use it in place of oil for massages. It has a slight pleasant scent but nothing very strong at all. Overall this one is a winner for me.

Would I buy Innoxa Exhilarate Body Lotion  again: Yes, great for massages and leaves the skin soft.

Garnier Tinted Anti-Dark Circles Roll On Review

VioletLeBeauxP1070513_18625

Garnier Tinted Anti-Dark Circles Roll On

Obtained: Gift Bag.

Thoughts:

I really liked the plain version of this and the concept of a built in concealer was really appealing. Unfortunately for me even the fair to medium shade was much too dark for me. The tone is very orange based so not great for pink toned skin. That said I could see this working really well for other who are a little more tan with orange under tones. It has a light scent and the concealer is actually a pretty good formula. It does cover blemishes and dark circles quite easily and of course the little metal roller feels lovely going on. Overall a good product just not for my light skin.

Would I buy Garnier Tinted Anti-Dark Circles Roll On again: Not for me, it’s too dark but I would recommend it to friends.

Formula 10.0.6 So Totally Clean Cleanser Review

VioletLeBeauxP1070515_18627

Formula 10.0.6 So Totally Clean Cleanser

Obtained: Gift Bag.

Thoughts:

I don’t think I’m quite the target market for this product. It states on the back that it “excels at perfecting troublesome young skin” which doesn’t really describe me. I like the bottle size and the design is very pretty. I was interested that the bottle says it’s been around since 1933 because I hadn’t heard of them until now.

The scent is very clean and soapy, I found it quite pleasant but if scent is something that you’re sensitive to then smell before you buy. The consistency is very watery and it is absorbed into the skin easily. It left an odd feeling on my skin though, it was smooth but a tiny bit sticky. I did wonder how it would absorb into different skin as I’m obviously not who this was designed for. So overall not for me but if you have “troublesome young skin” this might be something for you!

Would I buy Formula 10.0.6 So Totally Clean Cleanser again: Not for me. Maybe for someone in the target market.

Fred Farrugia Palette Kit Review

VioletLeBeauxP1060344_17255

Fred Farrugia Palette Kit Neutrals

Obtained: Gift from a friend.

Thoughts:

I love interchangeable palettes. The Fred Farrugia system is all about magnetic swatch palettes which you can mix and match to get the perfect set. You can get mirrors, brush sets and pretty much anything to click together like lego into a pretty palette. A friend bought me back this kit from trip to Europe. It contains the mirror and top, two brown shadows a peachy lip colour and dark brown which can me used as eyeliner or lightly as a contour colour. My absolute favorite thing about this collection is that I can apply everything with my fingers. I can get a look start to finish without touching a brush or applicator! For that reason I kept it in my handbag for months for those days when I just couldn’t be bothered with anything.

The shadows apply like silk and the colour pay off is lovely. The lip gloss is a little sticky but the beautiful shimmer makes up for that. The last palette is fantastic as a smudgy eyeliner. No real negatives here other than the fact that I don’t think it’s sold in Aus ;_;

 

Would I buy Fred Farrugia Palette Kit again: Yep, like all of the levels and I think I’d like to add in some more colours to create a completely custom  version for my bag or traveling.

BOA Protective Face Cream Review

VioletLeBeauxP1070528_18640

BOA Protective Face Cream

Obtained: Gift bag.

Thoughts:

I really like the packaging of the BOA line. It’s so smooth, simple and not OTT. I love all face products with SPF in them and I know that FOA/BOA have done extensive testing to get a good formula for their sun protection products so that’s another plus.  The formula is not too thick or watery, it does look like sunscreen but it rubs in extremely easily. After using several times I still couldn’t work out if I enjoyed the scent or not. It’s not really strong but it’s quite floral so I would suggest testing in store first if that’s something you’re sensitive to. I really like the explanation of the ingredients on the back of the bottle too. So overall I’d say this is a pretty good face cream but definitely give it a sniff before buying.

 

Would I buy BOA Protective Face Cream again: The scent was a little much for my tastes but otherwise yes.
