Little wooly bear! We almost stepped on him on the path. D=

We took a walk and explored!

Today… *checks time* Yesterday… Fumiko and Sascha and I went to the park down the road and explored the trails! I took lots of pictures of plants. I want to learn what they all are. Help a girl out. If you know what some of these plants are please tell me! I have failed at google. d= We had fun. Though we ended up at a marsh like thing and I got one of my shoes soaked in mud. Oops. We found a poor little wooly bear caterpillar on one of the trails. We almost stepped on the poor little guy. I moved him off the trail so he was safe and wouldn’t get smooshed. I think next weekend we will go out again and explore in the other direction. We had fun.

I received samples of Chirp Cosmetics products to try out. I was going to do lip swatches of the lipsticks but I didn’t have enough time today. The sun finally came out and the kids and I went for a walk and explored. Hopefully I can take some tomorrow! All of the shadows are soft and buttery and easy to blend. None of them were shear and all were pigmented. Most of the lipsticks were on the sheer side except Red Velvet and Singe, but they apply evenly. They aren’t scented and don’t really have a smell. Bitten is a lip tint that is a sheer balm. It doesn’t have a scent either. The finishing powder is translucent and matte. It applies well. The blushes are all soft and shimmery and apply easily. The brow powders are matte and soft. They’re easy to apply and blend. Chirp is a new company to me but the products are really nice. I contacted them a couple of times on Facebook with questions and got a very quick reply both times. All product ingredients and descriptions are available on their website. I didn’t want to put them all here or it’d be a very, very long post. xd Chirp Cosmetics is located in Ontario, Canada.

Overall I was really pleased with their products. I hope they come out with some magenta-y shaded lipsticks! You can find them on Instagram and Facebook.

SKLEER

Review: SKLEER Skin Conditioning Gel

press sample

Official description
Any skin type

Regardless of whether your skin is dry, normal or oily, SKLEER is the ultimate in skin conditioning.

This dermatologically approved gel smoothes the appearance of lines and wrinkles, refines texture, and evens skin tone for a fresher and more youthful appearance.

Because SKLEER is a great environment for your skin, and contains no harmful acids or alkalis (see Natural Ingredients), the more you use it the better.

Helps relieve dry skin

SKLEER is great for smoothing and improving the look and feel of dry skin.

How Does It Work?

SKLEER’s miracle gel, draws its natural herbal ingredients into the lower layers of the skin which are the actively dividing layers of the skin. This provides a wonderfully moisturising environment, while the skin naturally replenishes itself.

The upper dead surface layers of the skin (epidermis) are the protective layers of the skin, which act as a barrier to moisture escaping. In dry climates or in individuals with dry skin, this epidermal layer is often unable to cope and too much moisture is lost from the skin. Excessive showering, bathing or cleaning may worsen this by exfoliating away the epidermal layer due to the harsh effects of soap. SKLEER supplements the skin’s epidermis, by providing an extra invisible layer that locks in SKLEER’s natural herbal ingredients and the skin’s natural moisture and sheen.

Where to buy
From Skleer – You get 30mL for $19.99 USD.

Directions
SKLEER gel is a great environment for your skin, so the more you use it, the better it is.

Clean and dry the skin, then apply often as needed.

We recommend at a minimum, you use SKLEER once a day, to keep your skin looking and feeling fresher, clearer and tighter.

Apply it before using makeup or other creams!

Always clean your skin first, then apply SKLEER, before you apply makeup or other creams.

Packaging
You get a 30mL squeeze tube with a screw on cap. The tube is white and the cap is yellow. It has product and company information on it.

Scent and formula
It’s a slightly off white, clear gel. It smells like caraway and cardamom. Spicy. Like Tei Fu oil. It smells good to me. It absorbs completely into the skin leaving no residue. The scent does linger for awhile.

Ingredients
Water, Alcohol Denat, Eucalyptus Oil, Tea Tree Oil, Cardamom Oil, Caraway Oil, Cinnamon Oil (Bark), Glycerine, Carbomer, Propylene Glycol, 2-Phenoxyethanol, Sorbitan Monooctanoate, Coloring Agent Tumeric Extract.

This stuff is great especially if your skin is super dry or irritated. It’s super soothing. It cools and just feels good. It’s a gel so it fully absorbs and leaves no residue. Your skin feels soft and refreshed. I used this on my leg where I got burned from using medical tape and it seemed to help it heal faster along with cooling the burn. I received a small sample size along with the tube so I put the sample in my purse in case something happens while we’re out. I also put it on a paper cut that was hurting and hot and it relieved the pain and immediately cooled it down. It’s great stuff.
