Beauty Review, Aveda Hand Relief Moisturizing Creme, Kicho Camellia Sleeping Pack, Beautycounter for Target Color Story Set,  DHC Beauty Lift Eye Care Essence Roll-On, Mirai Clinical Purifying & Deodorizing Body Wash

This is where I talk about some of the products I've been loving lately...

Aveda Limited Edition Hand Relief Moisturizing Creme with uplifting beautifying aroma*
I've always been a fan of this hand cream and have used it on and off for years. It feels rich and absorbs quickly without ever feeling greasy.  My hands feel like they're enveloped in moisture when I use it and the fragrance blend of rosemary, lavender and bergamot is both refreshing and energizing. This is a special edition of Aveda's Hand Relief which benefits The Breast Cancer Research Foundation with $4 of each purchase donated to the charity to fund cruelty-free research. This product promotion runs through 09/23/17.

Kicho Camellia Sleeping Pack
Sleeping masks/packs are a must especially during the winter months when my usually dry skin gets even drier. I might've been attracted to this sleeping pack because of the luxurious packaging but it also happens to contain nutrient rich, natural ingredients like camellia oil, lanolin oil, rose water, and fermented black ginseng. I apply it in the evening about a half an hour before bed and wake up to soft, smooth, glowing skin the next morning. This mask feels weightless and has a lovely light rose scent. I really like how it seals in moisture while improving the texture and tone of my skin. Effortless skin care at it's best. I purchased mine from OhLolly but I've seen this for sale at Whole Foods (yes at the store!) and you can also buy it online from Amazon or Peach & Lily. It comes in a set with a brush for $53 and the mask alone retails for $35.

Beautycounter for Target Color Story Set
I picked this set up during our Seattle vacation and I'm so glad I did. Beautycounter is a brand I've long admired for their mission “to get safer products into the hands of everyone." The limited edition collaboration featured a range of the brand's most popular products including this$20  duo of their Color Pinch Cream Blusher in Hibiscus and Lip Gloss in Peony. I pretty much only wear cream blush these days and the stick packaging makes application so easy and convenient. The color is a vibrant pink that really wakes up my face and I love the dewy finish. I normally don't care for lip gloss but I actually like this one for the way it adds a touch of sheer shine and moisture without any stickiness which means my hair doesn't stick to my lips. Sadly the collab has ended but the good news is that these products can still be purchased directly from Beautycounter. Special shoutout to the Beautycounter Purifying Charcoal Mask which I forgot to include in my photo but I will definitely talk about it next time because it is totes amazeballs!

DHC Beauty Lift Eye Care Essence Roll-On*
While I'm boosting the moisture levels of my skin, I don't want to forget about my eye area. This roll-on treatment massages and tones the delicate eye area with a soothing with oat kernel extract and highly concentrated active lifting ingredients to firm and smooth. It's effective at reducing puffiness and keeping the skin around my eyes looking plump and hydrated. Yes I do follow up usage with an eye cream.

Mirai Clinical Purifying & Deodorizing Body Wash with Japanese Persimmon*
This body wash is wonderful because it's super gentle and rebalances the skin's moisture levels. It is sulfate and chemical-free which is something I always look for in a body wash. This is made with skin-friendly natural ingredients and Japanese persimmon extract which eliminates Nonenal/aging odor as well as genital and foot odors. The pleasant light citrus scent makes it great for my husband to use as well and a concentrated formula means a little goes a long way. I already added it to our Amazon wishlist and will be ordering a big bottle when we finish our current body washes. I was first introduced to the Mirai Clinical brand when I received their Purifying Body Spritzer in my June 3B Box. This is another product of their's which I happen to love because of it's effectiveness and clean ingredients. I will have a formal introduction to the brand and more of their products soon.

  2. No, I haven't tried any of these ons. I've been thinking of getting a roll on for eye area, so I will keep that one in mind...a good moisturizing cream is a must in Winter months. I'm glad you found yours. This year I haven't been using a hand cream, just regular cream but I should really get one, because my hands have been dry lately and I'm too lazy to wear gloves. There are few brands that I rotate between when it comes to hand creams and they all seem good, so that is easy. That sleeping pack seems interesting. I'm looking forward to reading about that Charcoal mask from Babycounter. I think I remember when you wrote about this brand. Getting safer product in everyone hands is surely a great thing.

  7. I'm so curious about the DHC Beauty Life Eye Care Essence Roll-On, the packaging alone is very beautiful haha. I used to use a gel version by The Body Shop, though have been looking to try something new since running out of it quite some time ago. I hope you're having a lovely festive season so far Rowena!

  11. I've never heard of these prodcuts, but after reading your reviews I would like to them! It's always good to have hand Cream during cold weather to keep your hand moisturized!

  13. I love DHC products but have not tried this essence roll on one. I am currently using Mario Badescu and Skyn Iceland for eye treatment. I find that I buy loads of hand cremes and it's never enough, so I can always use extra to put in my travel handbags, lol. Aveda's hand relief creme sounds lovely. Wishing you a marvellous and happy seasonal week, Rowena!

  14. You know, I've never even heard of Beautycounter before! Thanks for the heads up, Rowena:) And also for the heads up on the Kicho sleeping pack. I like the fact that it's readily available at Whole Foods....yay:)
    And OMG! TWTWB! No words! I'm in the middle of ep.4 right now...alternating between this and Supernatural, so no sleep for me....mwahaha. Love love love SHK in it, and she has such great chemistry with Jo In Sung. It's such a heavy story for me, but I'm loving it so far. I' m like on pins and needles at the end of every episode.:P Thank you (again) for this one. Man....I sound like a broken record, but really, all your recs are daebak!:D

  22. I would be interested in trying the sleeping pack! I was discouraged by the famous Laneige one because it broke me out. Still, the idea of putting a facial mask/treatment before bedtime without fuss is fantastic that I keep looking.
