Match Made in Heaven

I am here to give major attention to the 2 products that I have used everyday for the past year and I don't know why I have never mentioned it before. It is the Shiseido Cotton Pads and the Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Make-up Remover. OMG. I am not even joking, but these are the best cotton pads I have ever used. I have seen it every time I went to my drugstores, but thought it was kind of pricey. The cotton pads are about $8 for a bag full of cotton pads. Let me tell you, it is totally worth it! Before I used to buy those round cotton pads and I went through them so fast. I literally had to buy a new pack of about 100 round pads every other week. The Shiseido cotton is SOOO gentle on the eye/face and it doesn't tug on the delicate skin. The texture is amazing and this bag has lasted me so long.. As you can see I have only gone through one row within the past 2 months. Also, a good tip is to rip each pad in half because they are thick and work really well even when they are split in half! Secondly, the eye makeup remover is the best one I have ever used. I ran out of the Lancome one, but didn't want to spend so much money on a new bottle, so I went and found an alternative. This is the perfect alternative; however, I must say, I 100% think it is better than the Lancome one that everyone loves. I like it better because it is oil free and it works even better than the Lancome one because it cleans EVERYTHING off your eyes effortlessly.. I use waterproof eye makeup everyday and it takes it off so easily. The Lancome one used to leave me with raccoon eyes after I showered because it didn't get rid of everything. If I could compare it to similar eye makeup removers, I'd say it was like the Lancome Bi-Facil or Clinique ones. I love the 2 of these so much and wish you guys would try it too! It is so worth it and they both are so good on their own, but even better together!!

Design your own shoes

I watched Blair's (juicystar07) youtube video today and she posted a video of a website where you can design your own shoes. I thought it was crazy cool and wanted to further extend this discovery for all of you guys out there who don't know about it already. It is a company called Shoes of Prey and they let you design your own shoes. You can choose what kind of heel, colour, fabric and style of shoe. It's pretty cool, I am thinking of designing my own and ordering a pair. It takes about 4-6 weeks to recieve and if you don't like it, they even accept returns! That's so cool. Anyways, here is the link to the website. or you can watch juicystar07's video to get a more in depth review.. click HERE to watch the video.

I was reading April's issue of Cosmo and came across this article.. I always wear lip balms and vaseline to bed :( I guess this answers a lot.. However, I do wash my face every single morning, so I don't know. I still get blackheads on my chin.. hmm..

I've really been trying to eat healthier and trying to live as long as I can, while looking good too. Here are some anti-aging foods you can eat everyday that will help you achieve feeling good inside and looking good outside.

♥ Berries - blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, cranberries. These berries also contain a lot of antioxidants in them as well, so that's a bonus
♥ Cruciferous vegetables - broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, kale
♥ Leafy Greens - spinach, parsley, arugula, turnip and collard greens
♥ Nuts - peanuts, pecans, and almonds
♥ Whole-grain cereals - Cheerios, All-Bran. These also help with excessive weight and can reduce illnesses
♥ Green tea - helps reduce wrinkles, fine lines, puffiness, large pores

I love eating berries and drinking green tea the most! YUM!

My current obsession would have to be the Aquafina lip balms. I would always see them while I was waiting in line at Walmart to pay for my things. I finally decided to pick up a pack and ever since then I am totally hooked. I wanted to get a picture of it, but I already ripped open the package and I left one of mine in my other purse, so I just "borrowed" a picture from the Aquafina website so you guys can get an idea of what it looks like. I bought the 3 pack that comes with a bonus of the lip oil. I seriously love this stuff. Lately my lips have been getting dry and a lot of the products that I used to use don't seem to cut it anymore. It would make my lips soft but the dead skin would kinda build up on my lips and it would look gross. The Aquafina lip balms are actually hydrating and its so smooth and soft on the lips. It doesn't just sit on top of your lips and tries to keep the moisture from getting out like a lot of other lip balms. This one actually goes deep within and hydrates. It lasts a decent amount of time on the lips and works great under lip sticks. I just love it!

Price: 3pk + bonus for $3.98CAD at Walmart
Smell: I purchased the FlavorSplash Trio, so it came in the original, raspberry, and wild berry flavors.. I like them all. The smells aren't too overwhelming and it doesn't leave a bad taste in my mouth if I accidentally licked it.
Contains: Jojoba oil, almond oil, and vitamin E

Don't be afraid to try this because it's not that expensive and I would totally recommend it to anyone. The packaging is also pretty nice too. The only regret I have is not buying it sooner.

Occasionally, I would get a/some horrific pimple(s) on my face. It's amazing how a few bumps on your face can make you feel so self conscious and bothered. Anyways, I think I found my HG concealer to cover up those acne bumps that may appear. It is the Almay Clear Complexion Concealer and I got it in Light/Medium (200). It set me back about $8 at Walmart for 0.18fl oz/5.3ml. Originally, I bought the light one because it seemed a little dark in the store, but when I went home and tried it, it was very light, so I gave it to my mom and picked up the next shade the next day. I used to use the Amazing Concealer to cover my pimples, but I realized that it did a good job covering it, however, It could have possibly made my acne worse. At first when I used the Almay concealer, I directly applied it straight to my spots with the doe foot wand it came with.. It came on a little thick and it was hard to blend it out. However, I started to use the Everyday Minerals Concealer brush and oh my, it did wonders! I would take my brush and get some product on it from the wand then dab it onto my spots. It blends into my skin really well and after a minute it will harden. It feels kind of rubbery hard, like it can stretch.. then it will stay on all day! It did not cake on my face and look dried out like other concealers I've tried. I seriously love this stuff and want everyone who has trouble spots to use it because this stuff is awesome. It contains 1% Salicyclic Acid, so it contains medication that will help heal the acne as well. Keep in mind that a little goes a long way! So don't apply too much or else it will get super cakey, which it shouldn't! I would give this product a /5. The reason why I didn't give it a full 5 even though it is MY hg acne concealer is because it is a little difficult to apply alone and even though the shade matches me perfectly, there is only about 3 different shades, which might be difficult for some. I am totally in love with this though and it totally deserves to be recognized!!!

Thick and doesn't clog pores, does not cause more break-outs, heals acne while concealing it, does not easily rub off, affordable, can be purchased in almost every drugstore, doesn't irritate skin, no obvious scent

Not much variety in shades, may be hard to work with, applicator is not the most sanitary

So.. I've been MIA lately because I have moved! I am still getting settled into my new space, so hopefully after I am done with everything I can blog more often because I've gotten/tried out many new products I want to share with you guys. Anyways, here is my pink thing of the week..

My pink workout ball and yoga mat. Honestly, I just had to get them in pink because it would bother me that much if it was in a different colour... haha I know.. atleast I am supporting breast cancer, right?
But yeah, the last time I worked out was probably over a week ago and the workout I did was this one I found on youtube, which btw, really is tiring when you're doing it for 20mins straight. I like this video because you get to follow along with it from start to finish. After the 2nd time I knew what to expect and I did better! If you guys have the time you should try it out.. There are 2 parts. It is only a 20min workout, but it gets you sweaty!

I'm sure many of you watch Michelle Phan on youtube and have seen the eye drops that she uses. They are the Rohto V Cool eye drops and they help me get rid of the bloodshot eyes I get sometimes after a long day, or sometimes when I wake up. It is 0.4FL OZ (13ml) and you are supposed to put 1 or 2 drops into each eye up to 4 times a day. As you can see, I used a quarter of it already and honestly, I've had this for about 5 months and use it pretty much everyday. I am surprised I am not out of it yet. Anyways, I believe this product is from Japan and apparently you can get it in the US at Walgreens or something, but I was not able to find this anywhere in Canada, so I bought it off eBay for about $7 with shipping. Before buying one, I did a lot of google-ing to see which one I should get first, since it was my first time. I ended up getting the Rohto V Cool one since it was the best one for first timers. I posted 2 pictures of it and honestly, I don't know why it looks BLUE because in real life the cap is tealish green. I tried taking a picture without flash and it looks more teal, but still has the blueishness to it. Strange.. anyways, these eye drops are pretty good at getting rid of the redness in the eyes. However, Visine and other drugstore brands are just as good as it. So the Rohto V Cool is comparable to Visine, but the thing that makes it special is the minty coolness effect that it gives to the eyes. When I first used it, it felt a little strange, but now I feel addicted lol. It feels really nice on the eyes like a pepperminty freshness on your eyeballs when they are feeling hot and red. Overall, I would give this product a /5

PROS: unique and cool packaging, gives a nice cool feeling to the eyes when put in, does not sting, not too strong, not scented, inexpensive, long lasting

none, but I would like to try a stronger one

If anyone is interested, click HERE to go to the official website to see and/or buy the 4 different kinds of Rohto V eye drops. Love this stuff! :)
