Love it or Leave it


It's been a while since I did a Love it or Leave it post, so here are some that I'd like to share with you:

Cargo - Voyages makeup bag - This got me into my summer mode. It helped me lighten up my purse since the compact size really reduced the amount of makeup I carry around daily. It is very cheery and I just really enjoy carrying it around with me :) Love it! 

ELF shine eraser - this is an essential for these extremely humid hot days. At an affordable price of $1 for 50 sheets, you can't go wrong! Love it! 
J.R. Watkins Hand and body lotion - It's a great hand moisturizer if I can get over the overwhelming lavender smell... Leave it!
JUJU Cosmetics AQUAMOIST Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Cleansing Oil (150 ml) - this just does its job very well, and my face feels clean and oh so soft! My only complaint is the strong tangy scent, otherwise I completely Love it! 

Kiehl's - Ultra Protection Water Based Sunscreen SPF25 - It's suppose to be a light weight water based sunscreen... It feels a bit sticky when you first apply it, however it absorbs pretty quickly. There is a very distinct smell that is almost like white glue. I have to admit that this is a pretty good 'light' weight sunscreen, however, it was not really that great for my oily skin. Oil pools starts forming in the T-zone a few hours after application and it had also caused me to break out. I won't be using this on my face anymore, but will be applying it onto my arms before I leave work... At almost $30 a bottle I'd say, Leave it!
Korres's Lip Butter - I went to Sephora looking for a good lip treatment for dry/chapped lips and the SA recommended this one to me saying that it is very moisturizing and gives off a very nice tint... I love the colour but unfortunately, it did not hydrate my lips... At $16 a pop, I'd have to say Leave it!  I know I said leave it, but after trying it out again when my lip is normal, I'm actually quite enjoying this. The colour is lovely :) and hasn't been drying out my lips, but I still find it lacking in the moisturizing department. I just have to use a gloss over and it's all good :) Love it! [this part is updated Aug 14, 2012]
Klorane Oil-suppressing dry shampoo - Within an hour or two my hair feels greasy again... and I used the bottle maybe 5 times max? This shampoo also doesn't smell that great, double fail? Leave it!
La Roche Posay Thermal Spring Water (50g) It has been quite humid recently and this baby really helped me stay cool. This sample size is also perfect to carry around in my purse (which is getting pretty packed!) Love it! 
OPI Turquoise Shatter - I tried this on when I went on a weekend trip with a girlfriend. I regret not painting it on all my nails! This lovely turquoise nail polish has little shimmers on it and with the combo I had on reminds me very much of the ocean~It also crackled very nicely! Love it! 
Pandora's Bague Entortillée en argent aka twisted silver ring - this is a simple piece of accessory that I've worn a lot recently. It looks nice on any fingers, but I mainly wear it as a thumb ring or on my index finger. It's one on of those rings that adds a nice accent on your hand without going overboard :) This ring can be worn as part of a stackable, but is lovely on its own. Can't say that I'm not into brands, but I thought 35$ was not bad for this ring. Love it!
Foldable water bottle - Yes this last product is out of sequence, but I want it to be memorable. It's going to be a hot summer (yay) so remember to keep hydrated and drink plenty of water. I found this collapsible/ foldable water bottle amazing. It is light, compact and environmentally friendly and when it's empty I can just put it in my bag without it taking up so much room. Love it!
Thanks for reading this, sorry it is so long, I guess it has been a while since I did one :) I shared mainly my love it as I find them more useful, but I also wanted to share my 2 cents on products that I did not enjoy as much~ Hope you have a great day!
