Thank you Sara! + April empties + P&G brandSAMPLER

I saw my dear friend Sara yesterday and she got me some goodies:

While hanging out in my room, Sara's boyfriend, Yanick, saw my baby wipes and he asked why I had those. When I told him that I use them to wash my face when I'm in a hurry in the morning, Sara offered to give me a tub she didn't need to put the wipes in to keep them wet. Of course I said yes, because here's what I used to keep my wipes wet:

It's the box I got at the Groupe Marcelle Spring 2010 Warehouse Sale with the Hydra-C products.

So of course a tub would be much more handy!

Sara also gave me the Pampers Baby Wipes that came with the tub. She buys everything for her baby at Costco, so she has everything in great quantity, and she said she had too much wipes.

Pampers Natural Aloe Unscented Baby Wipes (72 wipes)

I told Sara that I was thinking about buying Iron supplement as I don't eat a lot of meat (I'm trying to completely cut meat of my diet and only eat fish or poultry), but I couldn't find some anywhere. She was at the drugstore the other day so she asked the pharmacian where she could find iron supplement for me. The pharmacian handed her the lower dose saying that I should get a blood test before going a dose higher. I'm not anemic or anything so I don't need a higher dose (not to mention that blood tests scare the hell out of me).

Jamieson Iron 50 mg 60 Caplets

There's something strange, though, because each caplets contains 50 mg of iron, and the recommanded daily intake of iron for a woman between 19 and 50 years old (I'm 21) is 18 mg. SO I'm wondering... is it really the lower dose? Because I know that an "overdose" of iron can lead to illness...

I know I'm talking a lot about Sara, so here's a picture of her (with me):

I know her since high school, and we immediately became close friends. She is one of those - very few - people I don't want to lose, and I know she will be by my side no matter what.

And here's her little Samuel (he's now around 3 months old, so he is a little bigger than in those pictures):

I think I did pretty good with Project "Pan them all" this month! I finished eight products:

 ☑ Olay Definity Highly Defined Anti-Aging Re-Energizing Serum

Hmm, not sure what a serum is supposed to do when you're in your 20's. Anyway.

Repurchase? no, as I'm not sure serum are designed for women in their 20s.

What I'm currently using to replace it: -

☑ Avon Hydrofirming Bio6 Eye Cream

I'm glad I finally used it up! It did absolutely nothing for my eyes! What a waste -_-

Repurchase? definitely not.

What I'm currently using to replace it: Burt's Bees Radiance Eye Cream with royal jelly

☑ Aveeno Active Naturals Daily Moisturizing Lotion

It has a great texture (thicker than your average body lotion), it moisturizes well, but I hated the smell.

Repurchase? no

What I'm currently using to replace it: SPAresource Amber Sunset Body Lotion with aloe vera

 ☑ Calgon Take me away! Mmmmm! Cotton Candy Body Lotion

OMG, the smell is divine! I was always impatient to get out of the shower so I could slather this lotion on ^^

Repurchase?  yes, but I would go for the full size bottle.

What I'm currently using to replace it: SPAresource Amber Sunset Body Lotion with aloe vera

☑ POND'S Cleansing and exfoliating towelettes (30 pre-moistened towelettes)

I'm not a fan of cleansing towelettes because they don't leave my skin feeling clean and fresh as much as a face cleanser with water would do, but I guess they do the job when you are in a hurry - like when I wake up at 6:00 AM to catch the train at 7:20. I was a little disappointed by those towelettes, however, because they seemed to have dried very quickly, even if I made sure to reseal the package well after each use.

Repurchase? definitely not.

What I'm currently using to replace it: Baby Wipes Thick and Fluffy (75 wipes)

 ☑ Lancôme Génifique Youth Activating Cream Serum

Even thought I don't really see the necessity for women in their 20s to use serums, I must admit that I was excited to get to try the highly talked about Génifique serum. I had enough product for around 6 uses of it.

Repurchase? no, as I'm not sure serum are designed for women in their 20s

What I'm currently using to replace it: -

☑ Avon Solutions Winter Nourishing Night Cream

Great night cream for the harsh winter weather. It's thick and moisturizing. I even used it in the day when my face was really dry. Read my review here.

Repurchase?  yes, absolutely.

What I'm currently using to replace it: Pond's Dry Skin Cream

☑ SPA02 Pebbles & Shells Relaxing Bath & Shower Cream

OK so I'm not even sure this product is really a bubble bath cream, but if it is, it's totally disappointing. The bubbles lasted for around 5 minute, and for me, that is a huge turn-off in terms of bubble bath product. I'm still on an neverending quest for the perfect bubble bath product!

Repurchase? definitely not.

What I'm currently using to replace it: Fruits & Passion Orange Cantaloup Foaming Bath Cream

If you live in Canada or US, you wouldn't want to miss the new samples from P&G brandSAMPLER!
