eBeauty. Beauty for everyone.

I was recently approached by Katie from eBeauty.ca, Canada's new online destination for everything beauty. They carry more brands than Sephora (300+ brands, 7 500+ products - new additions daily!) and shipping is always free on order of $75 or more (they often have promos where they offer free shipping free shipping over orders of $25). I recently saw ads for this website in magazines and on the internet, and I thought it looked interesting. 

Vivaderm Daily Cream ($17.95 for 200ml)
A luxurious daily cream that works to maintain soft, supple, healthy-looking skin. 
Best for people with exceptionally dry skin, including those prone to developing patches of eczema and dermatitis. 
Formulated with a special blend of three herbal extracts traditional used for skin care, this nourishing cream includes calendula, witch hazel, and butcher's broom. Together with rich emollients they help soothe the skin and keep it touchably soft, dramatically reducing flaking and itching.

I'm not going to lie: this is the product I was the most excited to try. I have came across only a minority of  great moisturizers that could really relieve the itchiness on my skin caused by eczema, so I'm always on the hunt for some others, and I was not disappointed with this one!

For a cream, I think the texture is more on the light side (I was expecting it to be thicker) but it's not milky or runny. I usually tend to rely on thicker creams because I feel lighter ones are not moisturizing enough, but I was happily surprised with this one.

Vivaderm Daily Cream is almost instantly absorbed in my skin as soon as I apply it, calming the itching immediately and leaving it soothed and smooth - what a relief! It is also non greasy and lightweight, and the scent is natural and pleasant.

I think the price is very reasonable for 200ml, especially since I don't use this product all over my body, but only on the areas that are prone to eczema and dry patches.

As soon as my skin becomes dry and itchy, I reach for my trusty tube of Vivaderm Daily Cream - not to mention that the tube is very handy to carry around in my handbag.

A luxurious body cream that hydrates and softens the skin while leaving it beautifully scented. 
This powerful concentrated blend of vitamins, antioxidants, fruit oils, and cocoa and avocado butters work together to deeply nourish the skin while increasing elasticity and protecting the skin against free radicals and environmental damage. Deliciously scented, your skin will be left healthier-looking and glowing. Free of artificial fragrances, synthetic chemicals, toxic preservatives, or other unsafe ingredients, this body cream is safe for use on all skin types.

The first thing that struck me with this body cream was the scent. I was sent a variety of samples to try and my favorite by far was Green Apple - yum! They all smell amazing - and I'm not talking about that cheap chemical scent! I wish the scent would last longer on the skin but this body cream is still a pleasure to use regardless.

As for the texture, it's just what I was expecting for a body cream: deliciously rich, non greasy and fast absorbing.

Available scents (all vegan, except Honey Almond, which is vegetarian):

  • Green Apple
  • Honey Almond
  • Blood Orange
  • Cabernet Grape
  • Coconut
  • Eucalyptus
  • French Lavender
  • Mangosteen
  • Meyer Lemon

A multi-tasking gel that smooths and protects your complexion. 
This lightweight formula nourishes sun-damaged skin. It works to clarify, brighten, and firm skin with intense moisture while reducing the appearance of imperfections.

Maybe it's a little too soon to tell (I've been using this product for around two weeks) but I didn't notice any improvment regarding the clarifying, brightening and firming of the skin. Maybe I'm too young for this? But one thing I can tell for sure is that this gel is really moisturizing, and it leaves my skin sooooo soft and smooth! I couldn't stop touching my face after applying it!

As it's a gel, the texture is light, but I still think it's a little heavy for a gel - it takes some times for the product to be absorbed into the skin. It doesn't feel greasy though.

If you look closely at the pictures above, you will notice gold sparkles in the gel but don't worry, you won't end up looking like a disco ball after applying this product! In fact, the particles are barely noticeable, and they will give your face an healthy glow at the most.

Of course, the price is a little steep...

h.wood.beauty Lip Shine in Plum ($22.00 for 0.42oz / 12g)
A gorgeous, ultra-nourishing gloss that leaves lips with an alluring shine and sheer hue. 
This moisturizing formula is infused with jojoba oil and cocoa butter to sooth and protect your pout with a hint of colour. Your lips are kept undeniably supple with mango butter, avocado oil, and shea butter while grapeseed oil delivers powerful antioxidants.

First of all, this product is called a lip shine, but it's actually more on the matte side, and it's far from glossy, as claimed. It doesn't feel moisturizing at all and the product seems to be quickly absorbed into the lips, so I have to keep reapplying it through the day.

As for the color, don't be fooled by the swatch on the website (when Plum is pictured as a deep red, almost brown). In fact, even the darkest color (which is this one) is sheer, except that it settles into the fine lines of the lips. Because of that, it tends to make my lips look even drier, which is a little strange of a product that is claimed to be moisturizing

I would absolutely not recommend this product, as it did absolutely nothing from my lips except maybe make them look even worst! For $22, it is extremely disappointing.

Available shades: 

  • Plum (sheer deep brick red)
  • Poppy (shimmering golden pink)
  • Rose (sheer, dusty pink)
  • Ruby (sheer bright red)
  • Sheer (transparent)

Stila Eye Shadow in Kitten ($27.00 for 0.9oz / 2.6g)
Stila's best-selling eye shadow pans, encased in a sleek aluminum compact. 
There is something for everyone. Ten award-winning shades that include everything from classic neutrals to the hippest, trend-setting shades in both mattes and shimmers.

Kitten is a very pretty shimmery champagne shade, but I was disappointed at how sheer it is once applied. I bet it would make a great highlight shade though.

It glides really well on the lids, just like butter, with no fallout.

Available shades:

  • Poppy
  • Kitten
  • Espresso
  • Mimosa
  • Oasis
  • Prize
  • Starlight
  • Sparkle
  • Sun
  • Wheat
