My Thoughts on EOS Lip Balm & NYX #thisiseverything Lip Oil
Mar. 5, 2020Leave a comment
I have some lip care products to share. They are EOS Lip Balm and NYX #thisiseverything Lip Oil. I’ve had them since last year. They seem to last for quite some time. I’ve only used two EOS Lip Balms (lavender, chamomile). Haven’t gotten to the Strawberry Sorbet yet. Here are my thoughts on both of these lip care products.
EOS Lip Balm:
I purchased EOS Lip Balm in a pack. It included 2 Strawberry Sorbet (Pink), 2 Vanilla Bean (Yellow), 2 Chamomile (Lavender). The packaging stated that they are…
- 100% Natural
- USDA Organic
- 100% Natural Shea Lip Balm
- Sustainable Natural Shea Wild-Grown
- Long-lasting hydration
- Not Tested on Animals
I’ve only used the Chamomile and Vanilla. From my experience with these two, EOS Lip Balms are so hyped up. I’ve used them before in the past. After that, I didn’t buy them again until now (to try them out again). To me, they don’t provide long-lasting hydration. I would have to reapply constantly, and they don’t leave my lips soft or hydrated by the end of the day. You would think that these lip balms are vegan by seeing ‘organic’, ‘natural’, and ‘not tested on animals’ on the packaging, but they are not. They all (all three of them) contain beeswax. This is something I would not purchase again. I think there are better lip moisturizing products out there. I’m not going to settle for less.
NYX #thisiseverything Lip Oil:
I like lip oils. They are hydrating and leave the lips feeling moisturized by the end of the day. I love using them at night too before I go to sleep. I wake up with soft, moisturized lips! I think these lip oils are OK. For some reason, I don’t have the urge to buy them again. It was nice to try them out though. NYX is a cruelty-free brand. Some of their products are vegan. The lip oils are vegan. BUT, keep in mind that their parent company L’Oreal is not. That’s another reason why I won’t buy them again. I don’t really need these lip care products. They are not a necessity. I would much prefer to support a brand/parent company that doesn’t test on animals and are vegan.
Those are my thoughts on EOS Lip Balm and NYX #thisiseverything Lip Oil. I hope this helped!

Review: RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Serum + Night Cream
Feb. 28, 2020Leave a comment
Here’s my 1 week update (review) on RoC skin care products!! Let’s start off with the Deep Wrinkle Serum (on the right).
Review on Deep Wrinkle Serum:
I used the Deep Wrinkle Serum in the morning and at night. I loved the texture of the serum. It’s lightweight and absorbs into the skin very well. It blends in effortlessly. It leaves my skin feeling soft, looking smoother, and somewhat hydrated. Yep, it’s not that moisturizing. I noticed a huge difference in my skin within 1 week of using it. But, this serum did cause my skin to break out in tiny little pimples around my chin and forehead area. I noticed tiny little bumps appearing out of nowhere. This could be an initial breakout from the glycolic acid or from other ingredients in the product. I did notice my skin peeling a tad bit too. I’m going to decrease my use of this serum due to the pimples. I don’t want to deal with pimples if I don’t have to. My skin is pretty clear. I want to keep it that way. What I didn’t like about this serum was the fragrance and the packaging. I feel like I’m being ripped off due to the poor, crappy packaging. I won’t purchase again for that reason.
Review on Deep Wrinkle Night Cream:
Like the Deep Wrinkle Serum, the Deep Wrinkle Night Cream contains glycolic acid too. I only used the Deep Wrinkle Night Cream at night (as the name of the product states). Results were pretty similar to the Deep Wrinkle Serum. It just felt drier. The Deep Wrinkle Night Cream comes in better packaging. At least I know how much product I have left. Would I buy it again? No. I have a love-hate relationship with the Deep Wrinkle Night Cream and Serum. I love how they soften my skin, but I don’t want to deal with pimples. I’m aware that glycolic acid can cause an initial breakout. I don’t know if it’s from the glycolic acid or something else in the product. 🤷🏻♀️ I’m not going to bother figuring it out. I’ll just find something else that’s more suitable for my skin type. Also, another reason why I’m not going to purchase these skin care products again is because they are not cruelty-free. RoC is not a cruelty-free brand.
I hope this helped!
