Face of the Day + Product Review


Time has come for face of the day segment and a brief product review. Actually, lets begin with product review. I know many of you own MAC Fix+ spray, which is known to prep skin before make up, set make up, intensify eyeshadow colors, etc. I use it daily and enjoy it, but not particularly for setting my make up. Its not that my skin becomes oily, but the feeling is somewhat awkward. It could be just me. :-)

So today I felt that my skin was a little dry, and as a result the powder that I used seemed a bit visible. I used the Evian Mineral Water to soften and blend my face. Conclusion = I loved the results. My skin felt refreshed, the powder was now completely blended and not visible, and I suddenly had a healthy glow, not to mention my skin felt soft.

Here is a description of this product that I found on Planet Beauty Website:
  • "Famous for their beauty savvy, French women know the secret to good skin - Evian Mineral Water. Evian supplies the vital moisture skin so desperately needs to look soft, supple, healthy, and young looking. Use it with complete confidence to rehydrate and deliver the perfect balance of minerals skin demands. For home or on the go, now you can experience the benefits of the fabulous French spa treatment that women have been enjoying for over 150 years."
Where: Sephora, Ulta
Price: $10 for 5oz
Try it if you are looking for something new as far as make up setting/skin refreshing.

Hey great look! Can you do a review on the Rimmel Fix and Perfect Primer? I'm interested in it and was wondering what you have to say about it :). Thanks!

I absolutely will do a review on Fix and Perfect Primer. After all, it has become my favorite face product :-) Its very rare for me to finish a product because I jump from one to another. But guess what? Rimmel Primer is almost all gone!! That alone is a good sign. Please expect a review soon.

wow i didn't even know evian made other products. so you just spray it on your face at the end to just have it moisturize? and i would love to read a review about Rimmel's primer, drugstore products can be really good sometimes. love your posts :)
