Honest product reviews for the savvy consumer.

Tag Archives: vichy

I received this product for reviewing purposes.  The price tag is over $50 CAD.  There are several gel like moisturizers on the market right now.  I have tried a few and they all feel the same on my skin.  This one has little bit of something different than the others I have tried because when applied to the face it has a cooling sensation that feels quite nice.

This night time moisturizer feels nice on the skin and absorbs quite quickly.  In the morning when I wash my face though, I can feel that I am washing the product off.  This is true of all of the gel moisturizers I have tried.  This one, like others is also heavily fragranced, it does dissipate with wear though.  I used it for several weeks and because I have oily skin, I didn’t see much of a difference.  I think this would be better suited for someone who has dry skin.  It is a very nice product and it would probably have better benefits for me during the winter months when my skin is less oily.


Woo hooooo!  My Topbox arrived today and I must say I’m fairly pleased with it!  I received 5 items instead of the usual 4.

The first thing That caught my eye was this Schick Hydro Silk razor and a coupon for $5 off of refills.  Razors cost a fortune these days, so I’m quite pleased to have received this.  I did notice that label on the box had an expired coupon advertisement which may be the reason we received it, that’s okay with me though.  The refills at Walmart.ca go for $17.33 for a 4 pack, I’ll have to watch for a sale.


I received an Ofra lipliner in the colour wine, it’s a bit darker than colours I normally wear, but I’ll hold on to it just in case.  This swatch was hard to remove, so it seems like it would have good staying power!

I received Pure Pigment by Pop Beauty in the colour in Crystal Glitz.  It’s a beautiful silvery colour and I will probably never wear it, but I love glitter and sparkle, so just looking at it makes me happy!

I also received a Pur-Lisse Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Eye Adore Serum.  I’ll use this for sure, I love trying eye creams.  Lastly I received Ideal Body Balm from Vichy Laboratories.  It comes in the cutest tiny glass jar.  There is only enough for one use, but I’m sure I will be able to determine if I like it or not.

That’s it for my April unboxing (really un bagging).  If you are interested in Topbox it’s $12 CAD plus tax monthly.  You can check out their website here.
