Did you go out Boxing Day shopping? While I may write for a product review site, the last thing I wanted to do was go out on Boxing Day. I just don’t have it in me to do elbow battles with others all in the name of a good deal. One thing I’ve learned along the way is that true deals don’t necessarily happen on Boxing Day or Boxing Week. Keep my eyes open and I may score a deal when I least expect it (you should ask me about the time I picked up a bunch of $8 jackets. That was awesome!).

In any case, let’s get back to the roots of ThingsThatWeDo.com. If you’ve been following along with us, you’ll know that I recently received a BzzAgent kit containing a variety of Burt’s Bees products that I’ve never tried before. I did an initial post about the Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Cream Cleanser with Clary Sage. At that time, I’d only had the kit for about 2 days and could really only give a basic review of how I thought things were going at that time. Well, today’s post is an update review. After all, just because something works in the beginning doesn’t mean it’ll continue to be fabulous. So, question is, how’s the Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Cream Cleanser with Clary Sage doing now?

Are you surprised that I’m a Bzz Agent? Well, you shouldn’t be. If you regularly follow ThingsThatWeDo.com, you know I’m a big fan of reviewing family related ‘stuff’. Truth be told, I was a Bzz Agent well before I started this product review site because I recognized the power of being an informed consumer.

It’s been a long time since I received anything from Bzz Agent to review. Recently, I received a Burt’s Bees package and inside, there were 2 products for me to test out. Let me introduce you to 1 of those 2 products. Have you seen the Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Cream Cleanser with Clary Sage? Well, I certainly haven’t. All this time, I was convinced Burt’s Bees only made lip balm. What’s up with this Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Cream Cleanser with Clary Sage? Let’s find out together, shall we?

Have you ever tried reading the ingredients listed on your bottle of facial lotion? Now, if you follow ThingsThatWeDo.com, you know I like to read labels. I may not always know what things mean but at least I can do a quick comparison amongst products. I look for ingredients that I can pronounce and the shorter, more natural the list, the better.

Well, I’ve been trying to find a good facial lotion that will protect my combination sensitive skin while having a list of ingredients that won’t petrify me. A while back, I was at my local health food store and was recommended to try the Weleda almond soothing facial lotion. According to the knowledgeable staff there, the Weleda almond soothing facial lotion works well on sensitive skin and has basic ingredients. Let’s see how well this Weleda almond soothing facial lotion holds up!

Long time ago, I did a review on another MAC product. This time around, I happened to go by a MAC counter and inquisitively asked if they might have a more natural product line. As far as I can remember, MAC makes great makeup but I’ve never really understood their ingredients. I’m no chemist so I really have no idea how good or bad something else but I can certainly try to figure some things out on my own.

Well, according to the MAC make-up artist, MAC does indeed have a more natural makeup line. Allow me to introduce you all to the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural. I know it doesn’t sound grammatically correct but that’s what it’s called. The MAC make-up artist said this MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural is the more natural version of their Studio Fix foundation which comes in a compact solid form just like this one does. The only difference is, this one is made with minerals. Now, I’ve used the MAC studio fix once upon a time so this seems like the perfect product to compare and test for today’s review on ThingsThatWeDo.com.

A long time ago, we did a product review on the Kiss My Face olive and honey soap. Recently, we noticed that Kiss My Face changed its product design and decided to pick up a different soap to test out. For today’s product review, we’re going to look at the Kiss My Face Olive and Aloe soap. Would it hold up to our expectations of the Kiss My Face brand?

A few weeks back, I did a makeup review on the Maybelline New York Eye Studio eye shadow in the purple icon colour quad colour palette. Well, I thought I’d follow up with a makeup review on a product from the same line but in a different colour. After all, one positive review might be luck but 2 good product reviews would definitely carry more weight. Thus, for today’s product review, I’m looking into the Maybelline New York Eye Studio eye shadow in the taupe temptress quad palette. If Maybelline has played their cards right, this taupe temptress quad should have the same feel and texture. The only difference, of course, should be in the colour right?

Do you change your makeup colours for the summer sunshine? This summer, purple seems to be the in thing to have. Vibrant and fun, purple just screams sunny warm summer days. I found this Maybelline New York Eye Studio eye shadow recently at my local drug store and decided to do a product test on it for ThingsThatWeDo.com. This Maybelline New York Eye Studio eye shadow seemed to be a no brainer. Maybelline had already chosen the 4 colours that would complement each other and on sale at $5.99, that was just a little over $1 for each shade of eye shadow. That sounds like an awesome deal to me. However, given all the different makeup lines out there, how does this Maybelline New York Eye Studio eye shadow compare? Price is one thing but it’s got to work to be worth the buy. Read on and find out!

If I had a Gotham newspaper, that would have been my first page news today. I had a serious case of shiny forehead courtesy of the warm sunny weather and too much running around trying to do too many errands in too little time. Before you know it, I’ve moved beyond glistening but I truly had no idea until I had gone into the mall and managed to catch a glimpse of myself before I cracked the mirror with my grease stick of a forehead. Wow, I am painting quite the picture aren’t I? 🙂 Now, I wouldn’t consider myself vain in the least but my face felt sticky and icky and I really needed either to wash my face (which I couldn’t since I was nowhere near home) or do some sort of patch up until I managed to get home and wash my face. Lo and behold, I spotted the MAC counter and I knew they had the MAC blot powder and in I went.

I haven’t done a makeup review in a while so it seems like a good time to do a makeup review. I don’t like to buy overly expensive makeup unless it happens to be organic or have super amazing ingredients. Thus, for something like mascara, I’d opt for whatever is on sale and then do a review on it for ThingsThatWeDo.com. On a recent trip to the pharmacy, I came across a sale on the Rimmel Lycra Lash Extender Mascara for $5.99. I’ve never used a lash extending mascara before and certainly never one with lycra in it.  The packaging is attractive and makes bold claims to give  you 60% longer lashes and 50% more curl. Will it actually work?

A while back, I did a review on one of two Revlon ColorStay eye shadow quads that I had purchased. Back then, I had promised a follow up review on the second pack which is something I often like to do because that way I can do a better comparison across 2 similar products. Well, it’s been a while but I finally managed to test drive the Blushed Wines colour scheme so we’ll see how this one works for this mommy blogger at ThingsThatWeDo.com.
