Because of what I do here on the blog, sometimes, #TeamGellibean gets to try out really fun products.
A lot of the times, these products have to do with cooking and having fun in the kitchen.
Sometimes, these products have to do with health and beauty items that both my girlie girls love.
Like take for instance the ability to try some of these new products out from GlamourboxPH and Pixi by Petra.
This is what we received in our recent beauty package from Glamourbox:
- Rose Cream Cleanser
Pixi description: Gentle formula with Pink Clay and Chamomile Flower. Especially suitable for stressed and sensitive skin types or for use in between Glycolic Acid treatments. A nourishing and soothing daily cleanser for all skin types.
My description: I have enjoyed using this creamy cleanser for the past three nights. It was in fact, creamy and nourishing and left my skin feeling moisturized and clean. I am not usually a fan of anything that is Rose scented, but this cleanser wasn’t overwhelmingly strong. So, it is something I would definitely continue to use.
- Rose Tonic
Pixi description: Soothing, alcohol-free, Rose Hydrosol based toner that hydrates and neutralizes skin from any reactivity after cleansing. It also normalizes hydration levels and gently removes any residual impurities to clarify the complexion.
My description: I began using the tonic the same day I started using the cleanser. I actually, had two big painful pimples on my chin that I knew were going to be huge, and when I started using these two products, within one day they became smaller and less painful.
- Mesmerizing Mineral Palette
Pixi description: This expertly curated mineral eyeshadow palette in a new colorway for Spring.
My description: Gia is so much better at using this palette than me. When it comes to fun colors and cat eyes, Gia is usually my in-house make up artist that always makes sure I feel pretty when I leave the house. She did a fabulous job of teaching me how to layer these colors and try something new.
- Glow-y Gossamer Duo Highlighter
Pixi description: These silky Glow-y Gossamer Duos give the perfect highlight on the apples of cheeks or brow bones. Our natural mineral powder reflects light, applies true-to-colour, hydrates and feels light weight on the skin. Each duo features two shades to be worn alone or layered.
My description: Who doesn’t need highlighter? I love this little palette. It fits in my purse and definitely fits the type of fresh make up look that I like to achieve on a daily basis.
- Liquid Fairy Lights Shadow
Pixi description: Add these glimmer toppers to bare skin for a flirty light catching effect, or apply on top of your favourite smoky eye to soften and enhance. The perfect add on to any beauty routine, smooth on with built in applicator and blend – they stay on and wont crease. Formulated with soothing cucumber and aloe vera. All the sparkle, with none of the fall out!
My description: I haven’t used this yet! But hopefully, I will be able to replicate the look that Gia showed me using this liquid shadow. She said she loved it because the glitter did not fly nor get stuck in her eye. That’s definitely a benefit if you want to add a little extra oomph to your eye look without the dangers of fly away glitter!
Now-you guys know how much Gelli loves any kind of make up, and Gia is my personal in-house make up artist who does my make-up for my events when she can. Truly, it’s a beautiful thing to have a daughter who likes beautify-ing!!!
Here are some of the things that I love about this brand:
- This brand born out of Petra Strand’s desire to put a vibrant, fresh, look that is pulled together in 5 minutes. (aka Life of a Mom.)
- Petra creates innovative formulations that are infused with botanicals & beneficial ingredients to treat your skin.
- Products are paraben free AND are not tested on animals.
But don’t just take my word for it, check out these to beauties and Gia’s quick and fresh look that she put on before heading out to the movies with a friend.
