Rodial Beauty Products Review

 

I haven’t done a beauty post in a while, but since ‘ve been trying many new products and brands lately I decided to share them with you.
Have you heard of Rodial? It’s a beauty brand based in the UK, but you can find their products all over the US as well (Nordstrom’s Bloomingdales, Ulta, etc). I get bored rather easily using the same beauty products so I’m always open to trying something new. I decided to try Rodial as it has received rave reviews all over the web.

The products I want to share with you today are their toner, eye cream, eye pencil, lip plumper and mascara.

My favorite by far is the Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Tonic. It makes you feel refreshed, smells like roses and you can notice a difference in your skin textures within a week of using it. It hydrates the skin very well, so it’s not only for the summer months, but also for the winter ones as well. By reading some of the reviews, it also seems to help with several skin issues. I highly recommend this product.

The Snake Eye Cream comes in a large bottle that will last for a long time (and no, I’m not exaggerating). If a little sample can last a month or two, this product, because of it’s size, is definitely worth a splurge. I can never tell the difference when it comes to eye creams, if they do magic on my skin or not, but I look for other features like consistency, and ease of application. For those two things alone, I’m giving it a 10.

The Glamolash Mascara XXL is perfect for those who love lots of volume and thick, dark lashes. As the name suggests, this mascara is like magic as it visibly transformed my eyelashes. I also noticed it lasts long, and even after wearing it all day on a hot summer day, it stills holds on perfectly fine, no smears or anything. Great mascara for sure!

I don’t use eye pencils often but sometimes I do.  Instead of buying lower quality products, I prefer to splurge on ones that I know will last a long time, and that are reliable. This Smokey Eye Pen is pretty good I have to say. You can tell right away it’s a great brand when the color lasts all day and it’s really easy to blend in unlike other eye pencils.

And, as for the Dragon’s Blood XXl Lip Plumper, it was a disappointment. It didn’t work for me as it make my lips feel hot and like they were burning. Plus, when it gets in your mouth, it tastes really bad and that feeling goes throughout your whole body (stomach, etc). Not my favorite for sure.

So, there you have it. I highly recommend this brand. Yes, you’re going to spend some more than other brands, but, in my opinion, it’s all worth it.

That’s why I’ve made it easy for you! Here is the list of vegan cruelty-free hair products that you can easily find in Target. All of them are made of natural and certified organic ingredients which is music to your ears, of course, if you’re vegan. I guess, now when you know it all, it’s time for Target shopping spree! Hint, hint!

Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick and Too Faced Totally Obsessed Set

Who doesn’t like free stuff? This Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick was exactly that. I received it at Nordstrom with a coupon that came in the mail. I thought it would be just a sample size, but to my surprise, I received the full size foundation in warm ivory! Hey, $46 in my pocket! Even for the money, this foundation is worth the prize! It’s big and for someone who applies makeup couple times a week, it will last a long time. I’ve had a chance to use it once so far and I have to tell you, it’s so easy to use, it blends in easily and makes you look like you have nothing on. After all it’s a nude foundation that creates a natural look. No mask on your face whatsoever!

I purchased the Two Faced Totally Obsessed Set because I ran out of the majority of things that were included in this set: the face primer, eye primer, mascara and bronzer. The set also includes the gloss, but the four items I mentioned earlier were the things I really needed, so this set was perfect for me. So far, I’ve had a chance to try the bronzer, which smells like chocolate, which I absolutely love! It’s a matte bronzer, so nothing shiny, just something for a flawless finish. You can actually purchase the full size bronzer here. As for the set, it’s currently out of stock, but keep an eye out as I’m sure it will be back in stock soon. In the meantime here is a list of the rest of the full size items included in this set:

Better Than Sex Mascara

Hangover Replenishing Face Primer

Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick

Shadow Insurance Eye Primer

Three Beauty Samples I’ve Recently Tested

Beauty Samples

 

I received a lot of beauty samples, not only through my Sephora Play subscription, but also from just ordering a lot from Sephora. I feel like I could easily live on samples instead of buying a full product, because I have so many face cream samples, mini lipsticks and so on. Samples are great because you can try them out and decide if you like a product or not without buying the actual product. There are many beauty products I discovered this way and then decided to buy a full product because of it. Here are three sample sizes products that are exactly the case. I haven’t bought the full size products of them just yet, but I love them so much, I probably will when they run out.

 

GlamGlow The YOUTHMUD™ Tinglexfoliate Treatment
 

The GlamGlow The YOUTHMUD™ Tinglexfoliate Treatment is a mask that works wonders on you. I have to admit I don’t like the tingly, almost burning sensation that it gives when you apply it, but what your skin will feel after is well worth the temporary annoyance. It’s a black mask so mind you, you will look like you just applied mud on your face. Perfect mask for brighter skin with less visible pores.

 

Tarte Frxxxtion Stick Exfoliating Cleanser

 

The Tarte Frxxxtion Stick Exfoliating Cleanser is my favorite. I haven’t had anything like that before.  You apply it on your wet face like you would apply a mask and then clean your face massaging it. Your skin feels tight, fresh and brighter with just one wash. Also, it can work as a mask, you just need to apply it and clean your face after 10 minutes. A perfect two in one product.

 
Tata Harper Illuminating Eye Creme
 

The Tata Harper Illuminating Eye Creme is probably the most expensive eye cream I’ve used thanks to this amazing and pretty big size sample. This cream is enriched with diamond dust. Yes, you heard right. This makes your eye pop with that luminescence look. My eye area looks so bright after applying it, the effect of which I have not had with other eye cream brands. One of the most luxurious eye creams ever (in my opinion)!
