Review: wotnot Natural Organic Facial Wipes



For a long time you could only buy the wotnot facial wipes online. But you can now find them in Priceline for $7.99 or with the travel case (like shown above) for $9.99. While it is very pricey for make-up wipes, personally I think it is so worth it. If in doubt wait for the 40% off skincare sale.

Some important things to note, these wipes are:
  • "Certified organic pink grapefruit and petitgrain
  • Certified organic papaya (pawapaw)
  • Certified organic rosehip
  • 100% natural and biodegradable fibre
  • Free from alcohol and artificial perfumes
  • Free from parabens and petrochemicals
  • Ideal for sensitive skin"
The wipes are large, moist and very refreshing. They have an earthy type smell which is not off putting...I swear. So don't be afraid if you're sensitive to smells.

Not only are these wipes made up of amazing ingredients but they do the job and do it well. I wear light to medium make-up on my face and more medium-heavy eye make-up. And I find that these wipes remove about 95% of my make-up using only one wipe. I've tried a few wipes before and none have performed like these. 

I love that there is an option to buy it with a travel case it's just added way to make sure the wipes stay moist and it also has a mirror at the bottom as an added bonus. Overall I would highly highly recommend these wipes.

Pros:
- Organic, no nasty chemicals
- Biodegradable
- Remove make-up well
- Doesn't leave an oily residue

Cons:
- More expensive than most wipes 

Rating: 5/5

Review: UBU Shady Lady Eyeshadow Brush (No. 30)

Claim: "All eyes on you baby. Love your lids with this short synthetic bristle brush perfectly molded to your eye shape."

If you want a brush to apply eyeshadow all over the lid then this is NOT the brush for that. 

There are a few reasons why it's a bad all over the eye lid brush. 
1) Bristles are not flexible 
2) Bristles are too firm 
3) Bristles from the base are fairly thick but as it tapers to the top it becomes too thin therefore not enough eyeshadow can get onto the brush to actually be applied smoothly all over the lid. 

However, this brush is really good for applying eyeshadow on the lower lash line. So if your looking to set your eyeliner with eyeshadow this is a handy tool. It is the right amount of thickness and firmness to apply eyeshadow on the lash line. 

Cons:
- Doesn't do what it claims

Pros:
- Great for lower lash line
- Cheap 
- PURPLE

Rating: 2.5 

Where and how much: K-mart - $6.00

Review: Essence Quick Dry Top Coat

Image: Essence Quick Dry Top Coat

Claims: "Extremely fast drying top coat. Protects your nail polish against chipping"

How long would you expect a "quick dry" top coat to dry, 60 seconds maybe 2 minutes? Well don't expect too much from this top coat. Every time I've used this top coat I've had problems with my nail polish smudging or sheet lines when I wake up. 

The top coat does dry fairly quickly however the nail polish remains soft and smudges if your not careful. I tried it a few times but the last time I tried it I left it for an hour and a half to fully set and without doing anything that would ruin the polish before going to sleep but when I woke up my nail polish had sheet marks. All I can say is disappointing. 

Yes it is a cheap product but from essence I expected a lot better. I've used a few essence products but this was the WORST. 

In terms of protection from chipping I don't believe it makes much of a different. My test for this was rimm…

Review: Optiva Aqua-Capture Serum and Nourishing Night Cream

So firstly my skin type is dry/normal. I'm prone to hormonal breakouts. Every time I get a pimple it scars whether or not I've popped it (gross I know). So my main issue are my scars. But like I mentioned I do have somewhat dry skin and I really do feel like these have helped with my dry patches and preventing my skin from flaking. 



1. Optiva Aqua-Capture Serum 
30ml $24

"This super concentrated skin hydrating serum has a light formulation, which is easy to apply and works deep into the skin. The serum strengthens the skin barrier in just two weeks improving its tolerance for the long term. Specially formulated to offer an immediate comforting and calming effect. Apply after cleansing and before moisturising both morning and night. Clinically proven to reveal healthier skin in just two weeks."

Overall I think this is a really nice serum, but honestly I'm not really a serum girl and this product hasn't converted me. I feel like it's an unnecessary step. But if…
