Makeup and Beauty Product Reviews and Swatches

If you suffer from dry skin like I do, Vaseline’s latest Sheer Infusion with Stratys-3 Body Lotion will put an end to your misery!

The new product contains Glycerol Quat, Glycerin and Hydroxy Ethyl Urea to infuse and suspend moisture across the skin’s top, core and deep down layers so your skin stays hydrated and silky smooth.

What I like most about it, however, is how light it feels on the skin. While most body lotions I have used do moisturize the skin, they leave behind a greasy feeling that takes ages to go away. With Sheer Infusion, the product sinks in so fast I actually enjoy putting it on. Plus the fact that I can see a difference in the overall hydration and texture of my skin in only a few days just makes the product so much better!

Disclosure: The Vaseline Sheer Infusion with Stratys-3 lotion was sent to me for review but is now available in three variants – Botanical Blend, Mineral Renewal and Vitamin Burst (my favorite) – at all food, drug and mass retailers nationwide for $6.25 to $8.99.

Lately, I have fallen in love with H2O Plus Cleansing Body Oil ($22) from the latest Sea Pure Bodycare Collection.

This oil-based cleanser contains sea lavender, shea butter and sunflower seed oil to gently remove impurities while nourishing the skin. It goes on very light and once it touches water, it foams gently and washes off very easily. My skin is left super silky and moisturized with no greasy feeling. But the thing I love the most, is the lavender aroma. It is so soothing and relaxing that it feels like showering in a bubble bath! Plus it is 100% vegan and biodegradable with no synthetic fragrances, parabens, petrochemicals, phthalates or sulfates so it is perfect, even for those with sensitive skin. Must get the full size once my sample runs out!

The Sea Pure Bodycare Collection is now available at www.h2oplus.com and all H2O+ stores. Other products from the line include Reviving Body Buffer, Purifying Body Mud, Replenishing Body Cream and Finishing Body Silk.S

With Eyeko Magic Liquid Eyeliner, you can now get more out of your powder eyeshadows and use them as liquid liner!

All you have to do is dip the applicator into a powder eyeshadow and the clear, fragrance-free liquid will instantly transform the powder into eyeliner.

The felt-tip applicator also makes drawing on even the thinnest line so easy, minus any tugging/poking at the skin. And once the liner dries off – which only takes seconds – the color stays vibrant until I take it off. I have used the product with eyeshadows from MAC, Yaby and Stila and it worked great every time.
