Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Day lotion

Price:  39.99$ from Priceline, David Jones and selected pharmacies

I got 7g sample pot of the day lotion in David Jones sampler Tote while the actual product comes in a pump packing. I have dry skin specially in winter, so I thought that this lotion would be perfect for my dehydrated skin.

The lotion is highly fragranced, normally I do not prefer to use fragranced products due to sensitive skin. The lotion has rich creamy texture which takes few minutes to absorb. I found that it feels heavy on my skin and even after few hours, I could smell its fragrance ( may be I have very sensitive nose). Make up glides smoothly on this lotion.

I used this for few days but I did not notice any improvement in skin. My skin felt congested and I got white heads on my fore head and checks. I discontinued using it then my skin gets normal. 

Sadly this expensive product does not work for me, I still prefer to use my HG Sukin sensitive facial moisturiser.

BOE Matte Lip Cream

Price: 2$ from Big W
 Boe matte lip creams in shock pink 33 and blush pink 32

I bought two Boe matte lip creams in shade shock pink 33 and blush pink 32, both shades are gorgeous. Boe matte  lip cream comes in a nice sealed packing with soft applicator. It does not look like 2$ product. The lip cream has sweat fragrance and thick consistency. They are highly pigmented and apply smoothly on my lips. These Matte lip creams are not truly matte but gives soft creamy look. They does not dry my lips and does not settles into fine lines. They have decent staying power and last on my lips for more than 3 hours with out eating and drinking. They disappear evenly and does not leave pretty stain on my lips. Shock pink 33 last for longer time and more suitable for medium skin tones while blush pink 32 does not last for long time and more suitable for fair skin tones. The best part of these matte lip cream is its texture and pigment. Considering its price, its a very good product.
I highly recommend it for every one while I do not recommend it for those who are looking for long lasting lip cream.

Models Prefer- Milky way Cleanser

Price:12$ only from Priceline

I bought it when it was on 50% off sale at Priceline. It comes in a round bottle which is not so easy to use, I found that pump or tube packing are much easier to use. I have to sqeeze the bottle forcefully to use the product and even when bottle is less than half , it is more difficult to use.
It has creamy texture with pleasant smell. It does not leather much but clean my face leaving it soft and hydrated. I need a small amount equal to 10cent coin to clean my entire face. It does not remove makeup and it does not claim to do it. I am using it regularly and it does not break me outs or cause irritation. It makes my skin soft and hydrated, does not strip and does not make it dry flaky. I must say that it really work well for my dry sensitive skin.
I like this cleanser, I recommend it for those who have dry or normal skin and it is not recommended for oily, combination, acne prone skin. This cleanser will not work for those who want to use cleanser+ makeup remover.
