Skincare Review: Fresh Sugar Lip Polish, Sugar Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy, and Sugar Rosé Tinted Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15

Building my lip care routine with these beauties from Fresh Beauty. To be honest, since I have not been using liquid lipsticks that much, my lips have been looking and feeling okay so, I sort of neglected them.

However, getting these Sugar Lip Ritual products made me pay attention to my lips again. After cleansing my face, I exfoliate with the Sugar Lip Polish. I do this twice a week. It feels gentle on the lips, not that abrasive, just enough to provide exfoliation.

At night, before sleeping, I apply the Sugar Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy. It’s not as thick as most treatments, it feels like a normal balm so it doesn’t feel bothersome. It’s on my bedside table so I wouldn’t forget.

In the morning and all throughout the day, I apply to use the Sugar Rosé Tinted Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15. It has a berry tint that can be used alone, especially on days when I’m not wearing any makeup.

After a couple of weeks of use, my lips felt softer and smoother. It made me realize how much attention I should give my lips, not just my skin.

Skincare Review: Revolution Skincare Rose and Chamomile Serum and Green Tea and Collagen Serum

Sharing with you these shimmering serums from Revolution Skincare. I mean, they are literally glistening. They are so mesmerizing to look at. They are just too cute.

The shimmering pink serum is the Rose & Chamomile Serum to give radiance to the skin while soothing and calming it. The green-tinged serum, on the other hand, is the Green Tea & Collagen Serum aims to hydrate and plump the skin.

I thought for sure these would feel heavy on my skin but they didn’t. Both serums are light and watery and they sink in quickly into the skin. I use the pink one at night after masking and the green one in the morning before makeup. The Rose & Chamomile Serum one feels soothing and the Green Tea & Collagen Serum leaves my skin plump and dewy. They both feel hydrating and a bit nourishing to the skin. I honestly have no problems with the serums and thankfully, the shimmer didn’t make my skin look greasy. For the price of $14 each, these serums are worth checking out. For me, they are more of a support to my skin if I’m looking to plump or soothe it.

They can also be used with the Rose Quartz Roller to help calm the skin and the Jade Roller, which claims to lift the skin.

Cult Favorite: Briogeo Tea Tree + Eucalyptus Clean Deodorant

It was love at first swipe with the Tea Tree + Eucalyptus Clean Deodorant from Briogeo.

For a couple of years I have gotten on the natural deodorant train and I have gotten off numerous times. When things got tough and sticky, I go back to my old deodorant – wanting its stability of not making me smell and sweat. However, using the Tea Tree + Eucalyptus Clean Deodorant made me stay the longest and I can finally say that I don’t think I will falter again.

This deodorant promises to be a natural, non-toxic, plant-based deodorant that doesn’t contain aluminum, zinc, talc, or baking soda. It’s vegan, cruelty-free, and is made without silicone, gluten, paraben, and sulfate. It aims to neutralize odor, soothe irritation using tea tree, eucalyptus, and coconut water.

The clear stick swipes on easily onto the skin without any marks, making it easy to get dressed in the morning without worrying about stains. You don’t have to avoid your armpits when putting on a top, in case it puts white marks on your clothing. It virtually has no smell, just a hint of fresh mint, also so it doesn’t fight your body cream or fragrance. I sweat easily and this prevents me from getting sweat stains. This claim also lasts for more than 20 hours. I know because I used this during a long haul flight. I have been using this for months now and I also noticed that my underarms look lighter. It’s amazing honestly and I have recommended this to all my friends.

Bodycare Review: Jurlique Calming Shower Gel Lavender and Calming Body Lotion Lavender

New to my stash are some body care products from Jurlique.

The Calming Shower Gel Lavender ($26) is a creamy and extremely moisturizing shower gel. It aims to leave the skin soft, soothed, and refreshed using chamomile flower extract, licorice root extract, and rosemary leaf extract. The lavender smell is calming however, even though my skin feels smooth after use it also feels a bit heavy on the skin. I only use this after exfoliating as I like the soothing feeling it gives.

A complete contrast in terms of feel, the Calming Body Lotion Lavender ($39) is creamy but it applies thin. It feels lightweight and it sinks in quickly into the skin, which I really like. It contains macadamia seed, avocado, evening primrose, and lavender essential oil to nourish, rebalance, and protect the skin. It has the same relaxing scent as the shower gel and has the same creaminess. However, this dries matte and doesn’t feel tacky at all. It moisturizes my skin without a greasy feeling. This has been my go-to body moisturizer in the morning since I got it.
