Goldfaden MD Needle-less Line Smoothing Concentrate Review

Goldfaden MD Needle-less Line Smoothing Face Concentrate

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Needle-less Line Smoothing Concentrate from Goldfaden MD that came in my June Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Goldfaden MD Needle-less Line Smoothing Concentrate

Dr. Goldfaden’s smoothing serum is the ultimate non-invasive solution to reduce the appearance of fine line depth, increase skin suppleness and create a smooth, flawless finish. 

Goldfaden MD Needle-less Line Smoothing Concentrate

Pure Hyaluronic Acid and advanced Hexapeptides make skin feel plump, appear firm and diminish the appearance of fine lines and deep creases. Nutrient-rich Seaweed Extract promotes a long-term, youthful-looking glow. With continued use, your skin will reap the benefits of looking younger, feeling smoother, and appearing more radiant. Ideal for all skin types.

Goldfaden MD Needle-less Line Smoothing Concentrate

This was the product that I was the most excited to try from the June box – it is no secret that facial serums are one of my absolute favourite skincare products!

The Needle-less Serum is to be used on dynamic lines (ie: forehead, crow’s feet and around the mouth – not on the under-eye area). A little goes a long way, just a drop or two is needed for application. This is a colourless and serum that absorbs into the skin fairly quickly, and plays nicely with makeup. It plumps the skin and helps my fine lines disappear.

Goldfaden MD Needle-less Line Smoothing Face Concentrate

I’m sure that with extended use, the results would be more apparent (as with most anti-aging products, it tends to take around 4 to 6 weeks to reach full effectiveness). Since you only need the smallest amount, my sample will probably last several weeks as this is the same type packaging as their eye cream sample and that lasted me quite awhile.

Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Aqua, Sodium Hyaluronate, Carrageenan, Propylene Glycol, Chlorphenesin, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Citric Acid, Aspalathus, Linearis Extract, Potasium Sorbate, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Seaweed Extract, Distilled Water, Hyaluronic Acid, Acetyl Hexapeptide-3, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Red Tea Extract

Have you tried this serum, or anything from Goldfaden MD?

Goldfaden MD Detox Hydrating Gel Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Detox Hydrating Gel from Goldfaden MD that came in my June Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Goldfaden MD Detox Hydrating Gel

A BHA Skin Balancing Moisturizer. 

Dr. Goldfaden’s daily hydrating gel helps clear skin, and minimize the appearance of future breakouts, revealing a clear and radiant looking complexion.

Goldfaden MD Detox Hydrating Gel

This treatment moisturizer provides anti-oxidant and anti-pollution nourishment with a potent combination of beta hydroxy acids, mallow extract and the Detox ComplexTM. These ingredients work to increase purity, while at the same time help to calm and soothe complexion. Skin is left appearing balanced, rejuvenated and feeling hydrated.

Goldfaden MD Detox Hydrating Gel

This is a super light gel based moisturizer – probably geared more for combination (normal to oily skin), but I found that it gave my skin enough hydration, and it did not irritate my sensitive skin. I don’t think that it would work for me in the winter months, as my skin needs a lot more hydration in colder weather, but for summer, it is perfect!

Goldfaden MD Detox Hydrating Gel

Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Water, Propanediol, Glycerin, Carrageenan, Gluconolactone, Sodium Benzoate, Calcium Gluconate, Saccharide Isomerate, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Glycerin (and) Marrubium Vulgare, Meristem Cell Culture (and) Xanthan Gum, Malva Sylvestris (Mallow) Extract, Alchemilla Vulgaris Extract, Melissa Officinalis Leaf Extract, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Leaf Extract, Veronica Officinalis Extract, Achillea Millefolium Extract, Primula Veris Extract, Xanthan Gum, Cellulose gum, Salicylic Acid, Centella Asiatica Extract, Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract, Potassium Sorbate, Sorbic Acid, Phoenix Dactylifera (Date) Fruit Extract.

Pacifica Cherry Matte Mattifying Primer Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Cherry Matte Mattifying Primer from Pacifica that came in my June Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Pacifica Cherry Matte Mattifying Primer

Don’t have a makeup meltdown. This lightweight mattifying primer is a support system for your skin, delivering a blurred focus finish with oil control benefits. So you can keep it together all day (or at least look like you are). For all skin types.

Pacifica Cherry Matte Mattifying Primer

This primer has a very mild cherry scent and absorbs into my skin quickly. I don’t wear full foundation in the summer time, but I found that it works well with concealer and powder. It also makes a nice base for my tinted sunscreen / BB Cream.

I was surprised that this mattifying primer didn’t make my skin feel dry, as most mattifying products tend to work like that on my normal to slightly dry skin. This would probably work really well for combination / oily skin.

Pacifica Cherry Matte Mattifying Primer

Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Aqua, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Sucrose Stearate, Isosorbide Dicaprylate, Glycerin, Bentonite, Niacinamide, Panthenol (Vitamin B), Sodium Hyaluronate, Isopropyl Palmitate, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary Leaf Extract, Xanthan Gum, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Barium Sulfate, Silica, Silica Silylate, Parfum (Natural), Sodium Gluconate, Sodium Benzoate, Prunus Serotina (Wild Cherry) Fruit Extract, Potassium Sorbate.

FiOR Minerals D’Fined Lines Organic Eyeliner Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the D’Fined Lines Organic Eyeliner from FiOR Minerals that came in my June Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

FiOR Minerals D'Fined Lines Eyeliner

This 100% natural vegan eyeliner is bursting with certified organic antioxidants and soothing ingredients, gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin.

FiOR Minerals D'Fined Lines Eyeliner

Create defined lines or a smudged out smoky look in no time flat. This creamy moisturizing nutrient-filled formula was designed not to tug or pull on the eye. FREE of harsh chemicals, dyes, parabens, GMO’s and toxic ingredients–No more Crying Eyes, only Smiling Eyes.

FiOR Minerals D'Fined Lines Eyeliner

This cruelty free, organic, vegan eyeliner is available in six shades: After Midnight (deep navy smoke, satin-metallic finish), Black Betty (blackest black, satin-matte finish), Brown Sugar (rich chocolate brown, semi-matte finish), Mystic (slate gray, matte finish), Night Moves (striking royal blue, satin-matte finish) and Purple Rain (bright striking purple, satin-metallic finish).

FiOR Minerals D'Fined Lines Eyeliner

I received the shade Mystic which is described as a slate gray, matte finish – to me it looks like a soft matte black. I have so many black eyeliners in my stash, but this is one of the few vegan / organic ones that I own. I do wish that I had gotten either After Midnight (navy) or Night Moves (royal blue) because I don’t have any blue liners in my collection any more.

FiOR Minerals D'Fined Lines Eyeliner

The eyeliner goes on smooth, and does not irritate my sensitive eyes. It can be smudged out / smoked out when first applied, but after that it will stay put. Super long wearing, even if you have watery eyes like me!

All in all, I think that this is a really great eyeliner!

Petit Vour June 2019

Hopefully this won’t be drying for my normal to slightly dry skin. I do like the sound of a blurred focus finish, so we shall see how it works for me. I’ll probably use it with facial sunscreens since they sometimes make me a little greasy.

Goldfaden MD Detox Hydrating Gel (sample size $10 USD, full size 1.7oz / 50ml $68 USD)

A BHA Skin Balancing Moisturizer.  Dr. Goldfaden’s daily hydrating gel helps clear skin, and minimize the appearance of future breakouts, revealing a clear and radiant looking complexion.

Infused with antibacterial Neem and refreshing peppermint, these biodegradable sheets are convenient, easy-to-use, and discretely fragrant.

This would be great for travelling or camping. I’ll probably put this in my stash for the next time I travel.

Osea Atmosphere Protection Cream Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Atmosphere Protection Cream from Osea that came in my May Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Osea Atmosphere Protection Cream

A lightweight moisturizer that protects skin from dehydration and damage from environmental aggressors. The super emollient algae base ensures instantaneous absorption while the advanced blend of dermal proteins increases elasticity and leaves a matte, silky finish. An amazing, invisible base for makeup application.

Osea Atmosphere Protection Cream

For Whom: Normal, Dry, Combo + Sensitive Skin

The natural emollient properties of seaweed give this cream a uniquely light and silky texture. Vitamin E strengthens collagen and increases elasticity.

Osea Atmosphere Protection Cream

This facial cream is so good, really hydrating but at the same time, feels very lightweight. The finish is weirdly matte yet silky – and it works amazingly well as a primer for foundation!

I’ve been using this moisturizer daily since my Petit Vour box arrived, and I really love this one. It absorbs quickly, it is non-greasy and plays nicely with sunscreen and makeup!

Osea Atmosphere Protection Cream

Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Aqua, Algae Extract*, Coco Caprylate/Caprate (Vegetable Glycerides), Macadamia Ternifolia (Macadamia) Seed Oil*, Sorbitan Olivate (Emulsifier From Olive Oil), Cetearyl Glucoside (Corn & Coconut Glucolipid), Butyrospermum (Shea Butter)​ Parkii​*​, Simmondsia Chinensis Seed (Jojoba) Oil*, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil*, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Calendula Extract, L-Lysine Lauroyl Methionine (Amino Acid From Plants), Xanthan Gum, Laminaria Algae Extract, ​​Ginkgo Bil​oba​ ​Leaf Extract, ​​Chamomilla Recutita Flower Extract*, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil*, Pelargonium (Geranium) Graveolens, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate (Natural Smectite Clay), Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Oil*, Potassium Sorbate, Glycine *Certified Organic Ingredient

Suntegrity Impeccable Skin Moisturizing Face Sunscreen Tinted SPF 30 Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Impeccable Skin Moisturizing Face Sunscreen Tinted SPF 30 (longest name ever) from Suntegrity. [info in italics taken from Petit Vour website]

Suntegrity Impeccable Skin

Beauty boosting skincare, sunscreen and makeup all in one! This medium coverage formula gives skin a flawless, smooth, more youthful appearance. Formulated without oils or silicones, this vitamin and peptide rich technology, visibly reduces the signs of aging while non-nano zinc oxide and melanin provide Broad Spectrum SPF 30 and blue light protection to help prevent any future damage.

Suntegrity Impeccable Skin

  • Vitamin C + E – antioxidant protection that feeds & nourishes the skin
  • Peptides visibly reduce the signs of aging and provide an overall smoothing effect
  • Non-Nano Zinc Oxide provides Broad Spectrum SPF 30 protection
  • Melanin (from non-GMO corn) protects the skin from damaging blue/violet light
  • Hyaluronic Acid provides long lasting hydration
  • Environmental Shield – protects against pollutants and allergens while preserving skin’s natural barrier function

Suntegrity Impeccable Skin

This is available in five shades: 01 Ivory, 02 Buff, 03 Sand, 04 Tan, and 05 Bronze. I received the lightest shade Ivory.

I’ve previously tried and reviewed a sample of the 5-in-1 Natural Moisturizing Sunscreen (Tinted) in the shade Fair back in 2015 (review is here), which worked great on its own, but didn’t play nicely with other makeup (concealer, powder, highlighter, and blush), so I was hoping that this new tinted SPF product would work better for me.

Suntegrity Impeccable Skin

Shadewise, Ivory is a perfect match for my face right now, but will likely be too light by mid-summer.

I found that this tinted sunscreen worked best if I applied it over moisturizer as the matte finish was a little too drying for my skin if applied without moisturizing first. I think that it would work really well for normal to oily skin (my skin is currently normal to very slightly dry right now).

And most importantly, the Impeccable Skin Moisturizing Face Sunscreen played nicely with my concealer and other makeup!

The cranberry seeds and hibiscus face scrub has been created for your skin to be softly exfoliated and hugely moisturized at the same time.  Perfect for sensitive or dry skin: this face scrub will leave your skin smooth, glowing and moisturized. 

BKind Face Scrub Sensitive Skin

This is a super gentle facial scrub, the exfoliating bits are very fine and do not irritate my sensitive skin. The base of this scrub is very hydrating as well. My skin feels so smooth and soft after using – I really like this one!

Lavido Thera Intensive Foot Cream Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Thera Intensive Foot Cream from Lavido that came in my May Petit Vour box. [info in italic taken from the Petit Vour website]

Lavido Thera Intensive Foot Cream

This ultra hydrating foot cream is formulated with the aromatic Achillea plant and purifying oils like distilled myrtle and Organic Tea Tree. Serves to moisturize and repair chafed skin as well as purify and prevent foot odor. Leaves skin soft, supple and energized.

Lavido Thera Intensive Foot Cream

This is a super hydrating foot cream, with a glycerin base. The scent is mild and herbal, not over scented – which I like.

It is long wearing, hours after I applied it to my feet, they still felt soft. I can’t really comment on how it works with chafed skin, but I can imagine that it would work well just by how this foot cream feels on the skin (and by looking at all of the skin friendly ingredients listed below).

Lavido Thera Intensive Foot Cream

Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Aqua, Stearic Acid, Cetyl Alcohol, Isopropyl Myristate, Synthetic Beeswax, Glycerin, *Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), *Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, *Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, *Simmondsia Chinesis (Jojoba) Oil, Phenethyl Alcohol, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, *Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, *Tritcum Vulgare (Wheat) Germ Oil, Potassium Sorbate, *Myrtus Communis (Myrtle) Oil, *Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, **Limonene, Sodium Hydroxide, Achillea Millefolium Oil, *Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Oil, *Mentha Viridis (Spearmint) Leaf Oil, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Peel Oil, Sodium PCA, **Linalool, **Citral. | *Certified Organic Ingredients, ** Made from natural essential oil
