LAURDIY MERCH TRY-ON HAUL AND REVIEW

LAURDIY MERCH TRY-ON HAUL AND REVIEW

LaurDIY is a content creator on Youtube and is most known for her amazing DIYs. It’s been a while since she launched her merch and she also partnered with Ardene. I’m excited to try them out and tell you what I feel about it.

It was hard for me to find her merch here in Montreal and I was waiting for a long time to find it in my local area. Fortunately, when I passed by in Ardene in Plaza Cotes Des Neiges area, I found her merch and it was on sale for 50%-70% off!

I only got 2 pairs of her merch but if you want to see more, here’s the link on her official website: LAURDIY(https://shop.laurdiy.com/) x ARDENE (https://bit.ly/2rxHpQ5)

I purchased a larger size compared to my actual size because I personally like oversized hoodies.

LAURDIY MOOSE HOODIE and SHORTS

I find the clothing material thin and very lightweight. The design is good especially the colors. It has a pocket in front. The pocket is not that big to put both of your wallet and phone but I think your phone will fit perfectly.

As for the shorts that came with it, the design and combination of colors are also good. It is also a thing clothing material. The shorts are very comfortable to use at home and to sleep as well. The only problem I encountered was it was not adjustable. It has a ribbon or ties in front but you can’t use that to adjust the waistline. I got this one in medium size and fortunately, it fits me ok and no need to adjust the waistline.

The hood is designed like her dog MOOSE (https://www.instagram.com/moosetheminibully/?hl=en) which is a Mini Bull Terrier. It looks like her dog but at the same time, I can also recognize just a little bit of MamaMiaMakeup’s dog (https://www.instagram.com/p/BTMg9h6gUgA/) which is a corgi. I find the design really cute and well made.

 

LAURDIY KOALA TWOSIE

This one has a slightly thicker and softer material compared to the MOOSE HOODIE. I feel like it’s also warmer when I tried it on. The pocket on the front has almost the same size as the MOOSE HOODIE.

As for the pants, they are comfortable and warm. The bottom of the pants tightens which I like for my body/leg structure.

However, I encountered the same problem with the MOOSE shorts. Since I purchased a larger size than my actual size, the pants were way too large for me. The tie on the front is also not adjustable.

The choice of color is also good. It’s a koala so it is in color gray and little touches of pastel pink heart on the front. And also as a mini heart blush for the koala hoodie.

IS IT WORTH IT?

For me, since I purchased it on a 50%-70% sale, I would say YES. They are very cute and comfortable that I may even wear the hoodies in school. It is stylish enough to be worn outside or casually. I personally like hoodies like this because I stream on Twitch.tv(https://www.twitch.tv/kaiseymahizaki) and my viewers also enjoy these kinds of hoodies.

 

I hope this quick review is helpful for you if you are also planning to try LAURDIY’s merch!

 

BFFECT Skin Care Review

BFFECT Skin Care Review

I’ll be reviewing BFFECT skin care products that I’ve been testing my self for weeks now and I will share my experience and thoughts about this product.

 

Who or what is BFFECT?

BFFECT is a skincare brand and the name signifies Basic Yet Effective. Their goal is to provide healthy and flawless skin without overpaying for “miraculous ingredients”.

It is also a young skin care brand that has gone viral and always gets the attention of people looking to have a perfect skin especially in Asia.

The best thing I love about this company is it is Cruelty-Free, so they dont test their products on animals. It is also Non-irritant so it’s definitely suitable for sensitive skin.

They have different product categories:

  • Hydrators and oils
  • Oil control
  • Anti aging
  • Brightening
  • Eye Essence
  • Soothing

 

The products I have been testing are hydrators and oils, and Brightening. I already filmed an unboxing video which I will link down below.

Products I tested:

LUZ  30ml

A Daily Brightening Serum for Dark Spots Removal

  • $ 12.9

 

Hyaluronic Acid 2% + Na-PCA 1% 30ml

A Classic Moisturizer to Make Skin Smooth, Elastic, and Radiant

  • $ 10.90

 

My first impressions were the packaging was minimalistic and good. It was securely packaged for delivery. The bottle is glass and the dropper feels like glass as well.

The first time I used the product, I was excited to do the Instagram beauty guru dropper thing. I realized that a drop goes a long way.

I use the moisturizer in the morning and the Luz brightening serum for dark spots during the night. There is also a recommended usage written on the bottle or box but I prefer to use it that way.

When I started using the moisturizer in the morning, I saw a big difference on my skin. My skin is dry and flaky especially around the mouth area and forehead.

I have tried different moisturizers in the evening and morning and nothing soothes my skin. There was a point I got really desperate to find a good hydrator or moisturizer to solve this problem because even when I go to school or work, people tell me about my dry areas and patches on my skin.

Ever since I used this moisturizer from bffect, no one went up to me and tell me to hydrate my skin because it looks so smoothes and glowy. Even I was surprised because I was very close to give up on trying to find the perfect hydrator for my skin.

As for the Luz, the brightening one, I chose to get this one because I have dark spots on my face especially the forehead area because of my acne prone skin. I have been using products that are anti acne like salicylic acid and stuff but sometimes they cause more inflamation to my pimple and burn the skin that leaves more dark spots.

Luz has helped me brighten up my dark spots around my mouth area and also the forehead. Although I cannot prevent my pimples from appearing on my skin especially on that time of the month. Girls you know what im talking about. Luz has helped on the healing process. It never inflamed my pimples and the amazing thing I noticed, if I have a big pimple at night, when I use this before bed, in the morning it has gone smaller.

Now each person’s skin can react differently but BFFECT skincare is truly non irritant. I myself have sensitive skin but I never encountered a problem.

Now you might want to ask, these are oils, is it too oily when you apply it on the skin? I had that question too.

But the first time I used it, it never felt like it’s too oily. Once you applied it on your skin, it dries after 30 sec to a min which leaves your skin a hydrated feeling and not oily. I also put my makeup on top of it and my skin never went too oily or patchy as it used to before.

Even tho BFFECT sent me this product to test it out, when I ran out of it, I wont mind purchasing again using my own money because I see it really worthit because it’s affordable and definitely effective especially for my skin.

I definitely recommend this product and if you guys are interested, check out BFFECT’S website here: https://reurl.cc/aNV77

BACK TO SCHOOL 2018 GIVEAWAY!

BACK TO SCHOOL 2018 GIVEAWAY!

It’s back to school season! Are you excited to go back to school?

I went back to school last July 31st, and I know it’s an odd day of the month to go back to school so let’s just say I started August. Let me know if you’re school starts in August or September!

For this giveaway, it’s not a school supplies giveaway like every youtuber is doing right now but I want to giveaway eyeglasses instead! Firmoo reached out to me to try their new collection of eyeglasses but since I still have my own glasses, I wanted to give it out to you instead.

 

Before I get into the giveaway details, I wanted to do a review of their glasses!

  1. The quality of the eyewear

I used Firmoo glasses since the very first time they reached out to me. It was 2016. So let’s say it’s been 2 years but this particular glasses I’m wearing in this video, I’ve been using it for a year now. It has a great quality, it never broke and didn’t have scratches even tho I didn’t put anti-scratch on it.

They have lots of other features or coatings that you can add for your glasses such as anti-glare, anti-fingerprint, anti-scratch, anti UV and so much more.

 

It is very affordable, and they go on sale often. They even have BOGO offers! Which will also be linked down below if you guys are interested!

2. Whether the prescription is right or not (for glasses with a prescription)

-The current firmoo eyeglasses that I’m using is with a prescription. I got my eyes checked and sent firmoo my prescription and they did a great job because when I checked the glasses when it arrived and the prescription is right. On their website, you have options on how to give them your prescription. You can scan and upload your prescription or just type it on the table or field they have provided. What I did was upload the prescription and also enter it on the field they have provided to make sure I sent the right prescription.

 

3. Whether it is easy to place an order

-It is very easy to place an order on their website. Never encountered a problem. Their website is very straightforward and user-friendly. They even have a feature which is called virtual try on which is very useful when picking out glasses to see which will look good on you.

Just in case you have questions or inquiries, their customer service is amazing. They respond fast and addresses your needs but be aware that when you email them on weekends, they might get back to you on the next business day.

 

4. The shipping aspect

-Shipping is very fast. When I order from them online, the product arrives in the same week. It actually depends where you live but I’m in Canada and it arrived really fast. The product is really handled properly and packed very well to make sure it is not damaged during delivery or transit.

 

5. Buying a pair online as the back-up is the best choice

-I never broke and lose my eyeglasses but I really suggest getting another pair of glasses as a backup just in case you broke yours and you couldn’t drive or take down notes in school because of your poor vision. In fact, I know someone very close to me that broke his glasses so many times and didn’t have a backup glasses and it gave him a hard time to do his simple everyday tasks.

 

6.The exchange & return policy

3-Month Warranty: Customers will enjoy a 3-month warranty (3 months of receiving), covering any possible defect in materials and workmanship. This warranty does not cover wear and tear from everyday use, or sudden force or impact.

30-Day Exchange&Return: Unsatisfied glasses can be exchanged or refunded within 30 days of receiving. Only shipping fees will apply. Customers are eligible for a one-time exchange&return for each order.

Eyeglasses DOs and DONTs + Free Eyeglasses!

Eyeglasses DOs and DONTs + Free Eyeglasses!

 

Your eyes are the windows to your body. You should always take care of it. It’s an essential part of our human body and makes a huge difference in our lives.

Taking care of your eyeglasses is the same thing as taking care of your eyes. So here’s a list of DO’s and DON’Ts that you must practice!


DONT: Leave it under the sun because it destroys the coatings on your lenses. Don’t just throw your eyeglasses in your bag, purse or pocket because it can be easily destroyed if it’s not in its case.

DO: Always bring your eyeglasses case. Bring either the fabric case or the hard case but I suggest using the hard case one to protect it more and keep your eyeglasses safe.

DONT: Get glasses that are only trendy and because everybody has that same kind of style or design.

DO: Get the one that’s really versatile so that no matter what season or year it is, it will still look pretty good. Most importantly, pick the one that is very comfortable to wear for you especially if you wear it on the daily basis.

DONT: Buy prescription eyeglasses without getting your eyes checked or consulted.

DO: Get your eyes checked annually or depending on how bad your eyesight is. In that way the prescription glasses that you’re getting will definitely help your eyes and not harm them.

DONT: Wash your eyeglasses using hot water, it destroys the coatings.

DO: Wash it using cold/lukewarm water to protect the coatings.

DONT: Use an abrasive soap or harmful chemicals to clean your eyeglasses. It will also destroy the coatings and also don’t use a brush to clean it.

DO: Use an eyeglasses cleaner that is safe to use for coated lenses. Use a soft cloth that usually comes with your eyeglasses to clean it.

Firmoo now offers BUY ONE, GET ONE OFFER FOR THEIR EYEGLASSES!

I already reviewed their eyeglasses and been using them for over a year now so better check it out!

H&M Cosmetic Review: Get or Forget?

H&M Cosmetic Review: Get or Forget?

H&M is awesome for their cute and good clothes but who would think that they will eventually have a cosmetic line that is affordable as well?

I have tried some of their cosmetic products and been using them ever since. To see my full review, go to my YouTube video: H&M Cosmetic: Get or Forget?

First of all, their packaging is gorgeous! It’s plastic which makes it really light and the style and design is great.

The eyeshadows and lipsticks have this gold and white packaging which makes it look expensive but bear in mind that it’s still plastic.

Their pressed face powder was amazing in keeping my face matte. I have tried to use this on top of different foundations that I own and it blended in perfectly.

 

Here are the swatches for the eyeshadows that I got. From left to right, the name of the eyeshadows is:  Let It Shine, Sun Worship, Over the Moon, Golden Light.

(Live swatches are in my YouTube video!)

The swatches are decent for a shimmer eyeshadow. Most of them stayed on my eyes for hours and they are not having so much fallouts like other cheap eyeshadows.

 

The H&M lipstick, as shown above, has  a very nice glide on the lips. Remember when you purchase this online, the shade at the bottom of the lipstick is not exact as the actual color of the lipstick so better go to an H&M store to see the actual shade rather than purchasing something you thought you want but you won’t.

The lipstick is moisturizing. This lipstick tho is quite messy to apply and can easily transfer so make sure to also apply lip liner.
