Today I'm sparkling, partly because of the products I'm going to show you, but also because it's my birthday! Yaaaaay!
There are two products to review today: the Sparkle Skin Body Exfoliating Cream and the Long Last Glosswear.
The Sparkle Skin is made for the rough areas of the body: elbows, knees and heels.
It's an exfoliating cream that feels very rich. I personally love it, it's a nice scrub that's indeed perfect for rough areas because there are some bigger grains in it. It's also perfect to get dry/dead skin of your feet. I like this one very much!
I don't think it has a scent and there are no perfumes added, but I read in a lot of reviews that some girls think it smells like mint. There is menthol in it, so that explains it, however I don't smell it.
In summer I might wear a lipgloss sometimes. There is not too much wind (hair in your gloss), and glowing and sparkling is just okay in summer.
Clinique has a lot of shades in this gloss, 26! Mine is a tawny peach color, color '08 Guavagold'. It has a shimmery finish, which looks subtle shimmery on the lips, definitely not too much.
Below you can see some swatches.
This color is lovely pigmented for a light gloss. But I mostly wear this one over a nude lipstick. It also feels quite sticky and moisturizing. And it should prevent your lips from chapping by keeping them hydrated.
You can see the grain in the texture of the Sparkle Skin, it's not very small, but also not thick. It's a midsize really.
The lip gloss has a pretty shimmer in it, and is well pigmented.
Clinique - Sparkle Skin Body Exfoliating Cream (€34,15)
Clinique - Long Last Glosswear in color 08 Guavagold (€22,30)
My favorite of these two is the scrub, because I loooove me some scrub. Seriously, it's one of my most important bath products, and I have a lot of them. One for my face, one for the legs, one for the neck, one for the arms, one for the back. No kidding! I even have some others so I can vary: one week a very rough scrub for the legs, the other week a mild one.
This one is definitely an exfoliant that I label under 'legs'.
Do you like scrubs as much as I do? And what's your favorite?
