I received RiRe Lip Manicure High Fix in No 1 Warm Peach from Amabie in exchange for my honest review.

This is a very good, long lasting, matte lip product. It has a nice, smooth texture, and is incredibly pigmented. I only need to use a little bit to get really good colour payoff. The colour can also be built up so you can go for a more tinted look or a full-on bright matte lip.  It has a light strawberry scent that disappears quickly and the packaging is super cute!  

The only problem with the packaging is the applicator - it has a really big doe foot on a short wand and I do not see how it can possibly get at all the product. A smaller foot on longer wand or even a brush would work better. The doe foot is also not great for application - the product goes on streaky and too much gets applied. I find the best way to apply it is to dab a little on my lips, rub them together, and then fill everything in properly with a brush. 

The colour is definitely a warm peach and will be great in the spring/summer.  This is not transfer proof and will need to be touched up after eating a meal, but even after eating a meal and wiping my mouth, there is still colour left on my lips. It does not feel heavy or dry and layers really well with glosses. I would buy this again in different colours and recommend it to anyone who likes matte lip products. 

This is a fantastic night cream, especially during the cooler, dryer months of the year. It is very moisturizing and has a beautiful texture. It has a nice, light citrus scent and it layers really well overtop the snail cream I use at night. The packaging is so fancy - reminds me a bit of Hermes. A spatula is included with the cream, which is great for keeping the cream sanitary and dispensing the right amount of cream; a little goes a long way.  Guerisson has put lots of good ingredients in this cream, including horse oil, snail filtrate, and niacinamide, but managed to keep it affordable. I purchased mine for under $20(CND).  I really like this cream and have already purchased a backup. I have not been using it long enough to know if it will brighten my skin, but it does leave my skin feeling soft and moisturized. 

This cream was very popular when it first came out and there are counterfeit versions out there. The authentic Guerisson product will be marked and should have a holographic sticker on it. 

This sunscreen smells fantastic - a nice, light citrus. However, it is super shiny; you might look like Goldfinger after putting it on. It is peach coloured, but the colour also is "sparkly", and this just makes my face look greasy instead of dewy. Luckily, a light dusting of powder calms it right down and this sunscreen can be used as a highlighter. It has an interesting texture - comes out of the tube solid, but as you rub it into your skin it sort of separates and gets watery, and then just smooths over your skin. It does not feel heavy on my face and it does not dry my face out. I do really like this sunscreen, but it is expensive for me to buy/have shipped to Canada, so I do not think I will repurchase it (unless it was on sale). I would recommend it to anyone, especially if you are into highlighting your face. 

I love this sunscreen and will repurchase it. It has a really soft finish and is not greasy or shiny at all. It is for oil control and it does help to keep oil to a minimum. It has a bit of a white caste at first, but it calms down and kinda blurs pores/imperfections. It does need to set for 10-15 minutes and can get a bit streaky, but I find putting two thin layers on prevents this. The only thing is do not like about this sunscreen is the fragrance. I was really hoping it would be apple scented, but it is pretty perfumey instead. On days when I have a bad headache I cannot use this sunscreen due to the fragrance.  

A little bit of this "cream" goes a long way. If I use too much the excess just sits on my skin and makes my skin feel tight. It can also be a bit tacky or sticky.  I can use this on its own in the summer, but in the fall and winter it is not moisturizing enough. I do not like to use it as a day cream and find it works best at night as a pre-moisturizer. It has no smell or fragrance and really helps to hydrate and heal my skin. I will probably repurchase this, but want to try other snail based cream/gels as well.

I really love this toner. It is the first moisturizing toner I have used and has completely changed my mind about what a toner can do. I only need to use a few drops to tone my entire face. It has a lovely texture and is moisturizing. I love to use it before acids or right after a shower, especially if I am not continuing my skincare routine until later. When I use acids after this toner they do not make my skin feel tight, but it does seem to have the right pH because I can feel the acids tingling. I love the simplistic packaging and will definitely be repurchasing this toner. 

This "Peeling Cream" is a mask that has bits of physical exfoliator in it (apricot kernels?). It also has some AHAs in it, but I do not think it's enough to chemically exfoliate the skin. The scent is sort of citrus (golden kiwi?) and not too bad, but it's definitely not my favourite. Since this is a cream mask it takes a long time to dry and it makes my skin feel pretty dry and tight when wearing the mask. I usually only leave this on for 5-10 minutes. This does rinse off pretty easily, especially considering there are bits in it. My skin does not feel dry after rinsing this mask off, but my skin does go a bit blotchy for about 30 minutes after using this.  It is not a bad mask, but not my favourite either and I do not think I will be repurchasing it. 

The fragrance of this pack and the bubbles really bother me. I get really bad pressure headaches and certain smells are a no-go. The fragrance of this pack is one of those smells. I am fine to use it when I do not have a headache, but the bubbles really annoy me. They make my face feel like it's itchy and I end up poking my face a lot when I have used this pack.  I do find it to be a moisturizing pack and would recommend it to anyone who is not bothered by strong fragrances or bubbles on their face. 

I absolutely love the smell of this cleansing oil! It has a light mint scent but does not have any minty tingle to it. It is a thicker cleansing oil and a bit cloudy. Two pumps is enough to do my entire face. It does a pretty good job of removing makeup and sunscreen, but it does not rinse off very clean and it does leave eyeliner behind. I have used other oil cleansers that work much better and cost less. I will not repurchase a full size of this cleanser but will purchase a travel size and use it occasionally. (It just smells so good!) 

I love this shower gel and have repurchased it. It has a nice, light, aloe-ish scent - unisex and fresh. It is a nice gel texture and lathers, but not too much. I love to use it with a shower poof. It is very moisturizing and great to use after being in the sun or during the winter. The packaging is super cute too!! 

As advertised, this aloe gel is not sticky. It leaves a really nice, smooth feeling and is great in the summer - I like to use after shaving my legs or when I have been outside gardening all afternoon. It has a nice, light scent that is unisex.  The packaging is super cute! I also like to layer this with heavier creams in the winter.  I am not a big fan of aloe gel and while I do like this gel, it is not anything life changing and I would not buy it again.  I would recommend it to anyone who does like aloe gel. 

Absolutely love these sheet masks. They are so moisturizing and feel so luxurious on my skin - like a delicious, silky hug of pure hydration. I love the creamy texture and they take over 60 minutes to dry. (I have fallen asleep with one of these on). These are "special occasion" sheet masks as they are more expensive than other brands. Worth every penny! 

Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream is a gel/cream that has the most amazing texture and leaves my face moist and hydrated. It starts as a cream but feels more like a gel as it gets spread across the skin. It completely sinks into the skin and does not feel sticky or oily. It has a nice light texture, but hydrates like a heavier cream. The scent is light and oceanic, very clean and unisex. I am almost done my first jar and will be ordering another soon.

I absolutely love this moisturizer and recommend it to anyone with combination to dry skin. 

Iope Enzyme Powder Wash is a fantastic second cleanser for my combination skin. This product made me realize that using the right cleanser can make all the difference for my skin. I used to get terrible hormonal acne around my chin, but in the first week of using the Enzyme Powder Treatment Wash, I had a major purge on my chin and have hardly had a pimple since. This Wash completely cleaned up old pimples and blemishes but does not leave my skin feeling tight or dry. It has a nice, light scent that is not too overpowering and fades quickly. The powder is easy to dispense and the way the dispenser is designed, water cannot get into the bottle (if you use it in the shower). I will absolutely repurchase this product and recommend to anyone with combination skin who gets occassional breakouts.
