Review: Maybelline Baby Lips SPF 20 – Mango Pie

Hello everyone!

I have got another review for y’all today and this time it’s on the Maybelline Baby Lips. So many people have raved aout this product so I finally got around to trying them out, however I was disappointed by it & I normally love all of Maybelline’s products. I bought the flavour ‘Mango Pie’.

The Baby Lips states: In just one application, Baby Lips instantly moisturises for 8 hours. Lips are relieved from dryness, comfortable and smooth: they have never felt better!

Review: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel + Night Concentrate Formula

Hi everyone! I’ve got yet another review for you all today and this time it’s on the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel. I decided to splurge on this during the 3 for 2 sale after I heard Judy from itsjudytime raving about it & saying it’s her favourite moisturiser. However, as much as I tried to love it, it just didn’t work out for me. I bought the day time and night time pack – the only difference between the two is the night time one has a thicker consistency and also small blue beads in the forumla (as shown in the picture below).

Hydroboost Water Gel & Night Concerntrate.

The night concerntrate one has a blue lid, the water gel has a greyish lid.

Inside the Night Concerntrate one.

So I use these daily, in the morning when I wake up and at night before I go to bed/after my shower. I have been using them for about a month now and the results are disappointing to say the least, especially because they cost a ton.

The Water Gel states: A refreshing, silky gel formula that doubles your skin’s moisture in just 1 hour.

Night Concerntrate: Releases moisture throughout the night so you wake up with soft, hydrated, supple skin.

Price: $25

Pros: The main pro about this is that it absorbs super fast and leaves no sticky feeling on your face – it absorbs in seconds. It has a slight scent to it, which is not sweet but is sort of refreshing which is nice. The packaging of this item is gorgeous – it looks luxurious in its glass container and the lid is extremely secure, I’d definitely give this 5/5 for packaging.

  • Absorbs ultra fast
  • Lightweight on the skin
  • Aesthetic + spill proof packaging

Cons: The biggest disappointment and the main purpose I bought this was to moisturise the dry spots on my face, which my Nivea one couldn’t do [click here to see a review on that]. This moisturiser doesn’t make any difference to that sadly, after half an hour on to three hours I see the dry patch again clearly – which is such a disappointment. The last con is that for such an expensive price, it only comes with 50g of product, whereas my Nivea one which costs about $10 comes with 200g of product.

  • Does not effectively moisturise dry skin
  • Expensive
  • Small amount of product
  • Not travel friendly

Recommend? I really wished and tried my best to love this product, but I just can’t, thus I wouldn’t be recommending it to anyone unless you have heaps of money to blow or if your skin isn’t that dry – I suffer from eczema and quite dry skin, but even the night concerntrate one doesn’t help; and for such a high price I would have expected greater results but it basically has the same results as my Nivea one.

Rate: 3/5


Hope you guys enjoyed this short review and ahh I’m so disappointed by this product, especially because I spent $50 all together on them! Anyway, let me know if you’ve tried it and whether it worked for you – because I’m sure this would be a holy grail product for some, just not me sadly. Let me know of some other moisturisers which are affordable yet effective because I’d love to try them out.

Review: Nivea Soft Moisturising Cream // Good Drugstore Moisturiser

Hi everyone,

I’ve got another review for y’all today – I really enjoy making these posts and hope you enjoy reading them! This review is on the Nivea Soft Moisturising Cream. I have really dry and sensitive skin along with eczema, so finding a moisturiser that is super hydrating is crucial. I used to use the oil free Neutrogena one for sensitive skin, which was pretty good up until it stopped moisturising my skin effectively (not sure why, perhaps my skin got used to it).

2015-03-07 23.51.36

Don’t mind the random white spot… it’s nail polish – I had to use something to put the polish on while doing nail art and this was the closest thing, haha!

Price: $10

Pros:

So I went on the lookout for another great moisturiser and came across this one – it is extremely affordable as well, I believe it is around $10 for a 200mL tub (fun fact, I also saw a miniature version of this at Kmart which was so cute but pricey). It feels really light weight when first put on and does a great job at moisturising my skin. I remember the first time I used it I was amazed at the refreshing feeling it had when I put it on my skin. The packaging is extremely secure/spill proof since it’s a screw on lid & I think it would be perfectly fine for packing in your suitcase.

  • Affordable
  • Lightweight
  • Effectively moisturises dry skin
  • Suitable for traveling
  • Spill proof packaging

Cons:

A con for this moisturiser is that it does leave your face quite shiny, so it is not ideal for oily skin in the morning when you need to go out soon after. Another con is that sometimes a particular part of my face (a small area) does not want to stay moisturised – but this is not consistent, it just randomly becomes dry some days, which I suspect may be from the wind or dry weather. Overall, it does a great job at moisturising.

  • Leaves shine

Recommend?

I definitely recommend this product if you’re after an affordable, effective moisturiser! I believe this is available in most stores in Australia (such as Priceline, Woolworths, Kmart, etc) and would be definitely available in other countries.

Rate: 4/5


What are your favourite moisturisers/thoughts on this one? I’ve been wanting to try out new ones and I hear the Neutrogena Hydroboost one is amazing (but costly which is a shame).

Review: Vaseline Spray Moisturiser

Hi everyone!

I’ve got another review from you with a product I’ve recently become OBSESSED with, like seriously, I want to buy 10 bottles. I believe that there are 3 different scents you can get this spray moisturiser in but I decided to get it in cocoa glow. Onto the review!

How it looks when sprayed on.


Price: $10

Packaging: I love the simple packaging of this moisturiser – it is light weight and therefore perfect for travel. This moisturiser is so handy especially when traveling as you don’t need to lug around a bottle of lotion. It has a resealable lid which twists, ensuring that product isn’t unintentionally sprayed out.

Pros:

To be honest, everything. I am completely in love with this product. The scent of it is AMAZING – I’m not that great at describing smells but it has a sweet, light chocolaty scent to it (not over powering at all). This moisturiser makes me look forward to getting out of the shower just to use it – the smell is to die for! Most importantly, it is really moisturising (my boyfriend said my skin feels a lot softer without knowing I started using this, which is awesome and proves it works, hehe), however I still am required to use this everyday after my shower otherwise my skin does feel a little dry, but this may because I have very dry skin. This moisturiser is super easy to apply, absorbs lightning fast and does not feel your skin feeling sticky and doesn’t make you look like you just put tons of moisturiser on – definite pros!

Cons:

As stated above I do need to use this everyday after I shower if I want my skin to stay feeling moisturised, meaning that it’s probably has a 4/5 effectiveness (although my skin is really dry).

Recommend?

YES! This is by far my favourite product I have tried in the past few months – I think the price is reasonable as well, but if this goes on sale, I shall prepare myself for an empty wallet! This is a lightweight, beautifully scented moisturiser which absorbs unbelievably fast. It is perfect if you’re on the go, lounging at home or even before a date (I can’t express how wonderful it smells, you have to try it for yourself!).
