Product Review: KN Karen Neubruger Crew Socks

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: KN Karen Neubruger
Name: : Crew Socks
Size: n/a
Price: $8 USD

KN Karen Neuburger's line of classic and comfortable socks has added pampering characteristics. Enriched with Aloe and Vitamin E, these socks will allow you to skip out on your lengthy spa treatments, giving you the chance to enjoy your favorite activities while pampering at the same time!

To Purr About:
- soft, comfortable socks
- stylish little design
- didn't have the silicone, plastic or creamy feeling like other "spa socks" I've tried

Claws Out:
- not sure if there was any noticeable moisturizing effect

Final Comments:
The socks are stylish and comfortable to wear, but I think that the "spa" effect of moisturizing my feet was minimal. Compared to other heavier-duty "spa" socks, I found that these didn't seem to make any noticeable difference in my feet's skin.

Of course, it could be that we're in the full winter season here in Toronto and so my skin is naturally drier than the rest of the year, but if you're looking for really good, skin-changing spa socks, then these are not it.

If you want to keep your feet warm and would like the added benefit of a little extra moisture boost, then why not give these a try?

Product Review: The Soapgirl Sugar Scrub

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: The Soapgirl
Name: : Sugar Scrub
Size: 15 oz / 434 g
Price: $25 CAD

Scent Tried: Cranberry Citrus

The Soap Girl (who I featured earlier in a New Product posting) is a Canadian-based bath and beauty company created in 1999 by then stay-at-home mom, Sarah Crawley. Popular for their whimsical packaging and fresh fragrances, Soapgirl products are a favourite item at numerous gift shows in Eastern Canada. What began as a hobby for a bath-junkie, has grown into a career as Soapgirl products struck a chord with busy women who demand affordable, luxurious and natural products for those few stolen moments.

I love stories like The Soap Girl's. It's great to hear about women entrepreneurs who are creating amazing beauty products. And I must say that I'm now one of the Soap Girl's fans!

The Soap Girl's Sugar Scrubs are:
- vegan
- phthlate free
- paraben free
- synthetic dye free

To Purr About:
- product smells really nice
- scrub is rough, but not too harsh or sharp
- scrub is soft and easy to use (but not too creamy)
- leaves skin very soft and moisturized

Claws Out:
- a bit pricey, but a little goes a long way

Final Comments:
When I first opened the jar of sugar scrub, I actually said "WOW" out loud. The first thing you'll notice is that the Cranberry Citrus smells absolutely amazing. I was already halfway in love with the product.

I wasn't disappointed by the rest of it. It was easy to use, wasn't too harsh, but really did a good job of exfoliating and left my skin feeling really soft and moisturized (the product feels like it has some moisturizing oil in it) and left that lovely scent on my skin (not overpowering though).

I must say that I'm extremely impressed with The Soap Girl's sugar scrub and it's definitely a must-try for the winter season when you need to keep your skin moisturized, but need to slough off all that dead, flaky skin as well!

Fast Facts:
- 1 in 3 women experience frequent and uncomfortable itchy skin, regardless of the season
- Over 5 million Canadians – approximately 17% of the population (including children) – suffer from symptoms of atopic dermatitis – the most common and severe type of eczema – that causes a rash on the face, hands and limbs and is accompanied by an intense itch

Curel Itch Defense Skin Balancing Moisture Lotion:
- treats dry, itchy skin, irritation, redness and helps ease eczema symptoms

Curel Itch Defense Skin Balancing Moisture Lotion is the only moisturizer to display the National Eczema Association Acceptance Seal on its packaging

Personally, I don't suffer from eczema (thank goodness) but I do find that during the harsh Canadian winters, my skin can get very dry and itchy, so I'm definitely going to be trying this product out this winter!

Product Review: Dove Sensitive Skin Nourishing Body Wash

Reviewer: Suziesaurus

Brand: Dove
Name: : Sensitive Skin Nourishing Body Wash
Size: 354 mL / 12 fl oz
Price: approx. $10 CAD

"Nourish your skin with our mildest cleanser ever. Dove Sensitive Skin Nourishing Body Wash has NutriumMoisture, a breakthrough formula of 100% natural moisturizers that can absorb completely to nourish deep down. Hypoallergenic, unscented and dermatologist-recommended."

To Purr About:
- left my skin feeling clean
- classic subtle dove soap bar scent
- hypoallergenic

Claws Out:
- doesn't lather up that well
- did not find this product extremely moisturizing

Final Comments:
I am a fan of the classic Dove soap bar, because it is known to balance pH levels and really is the only thing that consistently keeps my body piercings clean and non-infected. However, in winter I find the body bars not moisturizing enough, so I figured I’d try their body wash.

The body wash was definitely more moisturizing than the classic soap bar, but I didn’t find it as moisturizing as other body washes I’ve tried. That being said it was above average and seemed to be good for my extremely sensitive skin. I would definitely use Dove’s body washes again, but I think next time I will try their Deep Moisture Nourishing Body Wash.

Product Review: Product Review: Olay Complete Ageless Eye Brightening Cream

Reviewer: Suziesaurus

Brand: Olay
Name: : Complete Ageless Eye Brightening Cream
Size: 15 ml
Price: n/a

After the amazing results I saw from Olay’s Complete Ageless cleanser, I was excited to try another product from the same line.

From Olay’s website: "Olay Complete Ageless Eye Brightening Cream combines nourishing all day moisture with vitamins and an anti-oxidant complex enriched with Green Tea and Ginkgo extracts to exfoliate and help promote skin's surface renewal process for skin that is more resilient to the appearance of aging."

The product is advertised to:
- Visibly reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles
- Dermatologist Tested
- Oil-Free, Non-Greasy

To Purr About:
- wasn’t oily or greasy
- very light feeling
- didn’t intrude on make-up application
- absorbed quickly into my skin
- no scent

Claws Out:
- didn’t brighten up my eye area as much as I would have liked
- wasn’t moisturizing enough for my extremely dry skin

Final Comments:
I actually was a bit disappointed with this product. I was expecting wonderful things after all my great experiences with Olay products, but it turned out to be only average.

Although it did absorb well into my skin and was very light and helped moisturize a little, I didn’t find that it targeted those dark circles under my eyes very well, which I expect my eye creams to do. So even though it is more affordable than other eye creams on the market I would rather pay a bit more for more results.

Product Review: Lise Watier Hydra-Temps Total Moisture Night Creme-Gel

Reviewer: Suziesaurus

Brand: Lise Watier
Name: : Hydra-Temps Total Moisture Night Creme-Gel
Size: 50 ml / 1.7 fl oz
Price: $43 CAD

"Designed for all skin types, this silky, vanishing crème features Lise Watier’s exclusive Beta-Hydrumex Complex. Rich in apple extract, this complex is associated with a multi-sensory moisturizer, ceramides-3, and phytosqualane to capture water molecules and effectively rebuild the hydrolipidic barrier as it acts through the night. A veritable source of hydration, it leaves skin supple and radiant. All the benefits of apple for the health of your skin."

To Purr About:
- scrumptious, yet subtle, scent of apples
- comes with a little spatula, so you can avoid contaminating the jar with your finger bacteria
- keeps my skin super hydrated
- absorbs quickly into my skin
- not greasy or heavy feeling
- doesn’t irritate my super sensitive skin

Claws Out:
- none really

Final Comments:
I am a huge fan of Lise Watier’s products (lipstick, mineral foundation, etc.), so I’m always excited to try more of their lines. Lately I`ve been on the lookout for a proper night cream and this heavy duty looking one looked like something that might work for my super sensitive skin.

After using this product for a while I must say that, as usual Lise Watier’s products don’t disappoint. This night cream not only keeps my skin super moisturized at night, but it is super light and quickly absorbs into my skin. It is very reasonably priced and I am pretty confident that it will help my skin withstand the rough winter weather ahead.

Product Review: RoC Complete Lift Overnight Regenerating Cream

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: RoC
Name: : Complete Lift Overnight Regenerating Cream Size: 50 ml
Price: $40 CAD

"A powerful, moisturizing formula that works to recapture skin's youthful, firmer look during sleep by working so that skin appears more lifted, more contoured...clinically shown to improve skin's firmness and elasticity, promoting visibly lifted and refined facial contours." (from the press release)

I recently finished the current night cream I was using, so I decided to try RoC's next. Now that I'm firmly in my early 30s, I definitely think it's time to start taking preventive action!

I had never tried any RoC products before this, although I've heard good things about them, so this was a good first introduction to the brand.

To Purr About:
- cream is nice and thick, but not greasy
- goes on easily and absorbs quickly
- leaves a light, pleasant fragrance
- skin feels instantly moisturized

Claws Out:
- a little more expensive than most night creams that I've been using

Final Comments:
Night creams are generally heavier than day creams, which I don't mind, since I'm not wearing any makeup or anything else after I've applied my night cream. I found the RoC night cream to be just as thick as most other night creams I've tried, however, it felt light going on and didn't take much rubbing to absorb quickly into my skin. It left a really nice, light scent.

The one thing I did notice right away is that many night creams (because they're so thick) often feel sticky or greasy for a while after application, but then once absorbed, I don't notice it anymore. With the RoC one, it absorbed almost immediately, with no greasiness or stickiness, but about an hour afterwards, my face still felt "plump" with moisture, as if I had just applied the cream.

I have noticed that my face isn't as dry in the mornings since I've started using this night cream. I'm not sure about the "youthful looking" aspect, but I definitely see a difference in my face moisture level, and that's good enough to convince me that this night cream is different than the others I've tried.

NEW Product: SmartMouth mouthwash

Brand: SmartMouth
Name: mouth wash
Size: n/a
Price: n/a

SmartMouth mouthwash not only kill germs and eliminates odors, but also prevents those odors from returning within a 12 hour period. This means that SmartMouth lasts at least 12 times longer than any other leading mouthwash available to consumers. These claims have recently been tested and confirmed, validating that SmartMouth mouthwash does in fact provide 12 hours of fresh breath.

SmartMouth uses a patented, dual-solution technology that requires two active ingredients to be kept separate until just prior to rinsing. This insures that SmartMouth is freshly activated with each use to provide unmatched, long-term fresh breath.

NEW Product Line: Meltology

Meltology, is a new, patent-pending, luxury skin and body care system that uses a heat inspired technology system (activated solely by the addition of water – not electricity – the first-ever of their kind available on the market).

Meltology promises to provide spa quality treatments that you can do right in the privacy of your own home.

Each one of their signature items is a sanitary, single-use item that's self-contained, disposable, and uses green and sustainable raw-materials, so there’s nothing to store or clean when the treatment is finished. No mess and no worries of contamination unlike spas that use public paraffin wax, pedicures tubs, etc. The mineral energy technology inside each spa mitt and sock heats instantly when water is added, and it keeps the sock warm for 30+ minutes.

Hot Stone Massage brings all the benefits of heat therapy to every area of the body. Heat also allows a massage to be more effective than with pressure alone, as heat releases knots and tension in the connective tissue around the muscles.

Product Review: M.A.C. Slimshine Lipstick

Reviewer: Suziesaurus

Brand: M.A.C.
Name: Slimshine Lipstick
Size: 2.3 g / 0.08 oz
Price: $17.50 CAD

Shade Tried: Gaily

I suffer from extremely sensitive and dry lips, but I yearn for fabulous looking lips. So when I was at the shopping mall this week I decided it was time I again tried to find that perfect lipstick.

From the website: “A new Lipstick combining creamy emolliency with a unique sheer colour pay-off. Finishes include cream, sparkling pearl and metallic. Provides the shine and moisturizing comfort of a gloss but with a smooth, non-sticky finish. Distinctive on and off. Comes packaged in its own stylish extra-long lipstick case.”

To Purr About:
- 24 fabulous colours to choose from
- glides on effortlessly
- does not irritate my lips

Claws Out:
- a tiny bit drying
- doesn’t stay on super long

Final Comments:
Although I’ve been using MAC products since high school, I haven’t bought a MAC lipstick in years. The last time I did I remember it being very heavy and matte, so I was a little apprehensive since my lips have unfortunately become very sensitive and finicky. However I thought I’d give it another shot in my search for the perfect lips. I was really interested in their non-traditional lipsticks like their slimshine and lip glosses, but I decided on the slimshine as I wanted a less glossy look & a more smooth and silky look.

The outcome - I was really happy with this MAC’s slimshine lipstick. The lipstick looked awesome on and glided on so smoothly. I am definitely going to try more of MAC’s lip products in the near future.

Product Review: Olay Botanical Fusion Body Wash - Hydrate

Reviewer: Suziesaurus

Brand: Olay
Name: : Botanical Fusion Body Wash - Hydrate
Size: 345 ml
Approximate Price: $7.00 CAD

From Olay’s website: "Olay brings advanced skincare into the shower with Olay Botanical Fusion. Olay conditioners, fused with scents inspired by nature, are formulated to delight your senses while hydrating your skin from the comfort of your own shower. The rich, creamy formula wraps your skin with nourishing moisturizers that leave you naturally beautiful and hydrated. It's healthy looking skin inspired by nature. Try hydrate to nourish dry skin and promote more even tone."

To Purr About:
- very moisturizing
- lathered up super well and was super silky
- very subtle, but nice, botanical smell

Claws Out:
- none really

Final Comments:
After the success I had with Olay`s cleanser I was excited to try more of their products. With the cold harsh winter approaching I am gearing up to keep my skin properly moisturized, and so I was especially intrigued by Olay`s 'hydrate' body wash.

After the first use I was sold. It lathers up so well and feels amazingly silky in the shower. And it also left my skin feeling very moisturized afterwards. I am definitely loving Olay's products!

back from vacation with some changes...

Back from vacation and ready to get this blog going again. While I was away, I did spend some time thinking about how to make this blog even more useful for you, my readers.

In the past, I've generally kept my posts to about one per day (at the most) and the only time I did multiple posts were if I had already posted something earlier in the day and a Bonus Gift offer was announced.

I've had many readers comment or email me about including even more product announcements and deal-alerts, so I've been trying to come up with a way to include those as well.

So, basically, it means that there will be many more posts coming out, which may mean several a day. I will generally only post online-deals or deals to places that are available in many locations, because I just wouldn't be able to access or include everything for everyone. I'll also post more new product release news as it becomes available to me.

What does this mean? More (hopefully useful) information for you! But it also means there could be multiple posts on some days, so in other words - be sure to check it all out! I'll try to keep most posts organized in some sort of template (kind of how the product reviews and new product alerts are already done) so that you can easily skim for the info you want/need.

All in all, I hope this means a more informative and useful blog for all my readers.

Also, if there are any online deals that you hear of, email me at so I can include them!

Cinnamon Kitten is on vacation!

I'm taking a much needed vacation (first time going away in 2 years!) and spending a week in Las Vegas! :)

So this blog will be on hiatus for a week. I'll be back next weekend with a pile of new product alerts and even more product reviews!

Thanks for reading everyone - see you in a week!

Product Review: Merlot Natural Grape Seed Moisturizer

Reviewer: Suziesaurus

Brand: Merlot
Name: Natural Grape Seed Moisturizer
Size: 118 ml / 4 fl oz
Price: approx. $15 USD

(from the product)
Creme de Vin is made of natural red grape seeds polyphenols. It offers sensational antioxidant properties thereby helping to inhibit the aging process.
- Natures most powerful antioxidant
- Anti-Aging
- SPF 15
- Fragrance Free
- Non-Oily

To Purr About:
- has SPF 15
- not greasy
- absorbs quickly into the skin
- subtle scent

Claws Out:
- not super moisturizing

Final Comments:
I didn't find anything wrong with this product, but it didn't stand out as anything extraordinary either.

It kept my face moisturized and soft enough throughout the day, but didn't give my skin any extra pizzazz. I was definitely more impressed with Merlot’s purifying peel-off mask.

It's a shame I'm so insanely picky about my moisturizers nowadays.

Product Review: Skindinävia Dance! Makeup Finish

Reviewer: Suziesaurus

Brand: Skindinävia
Name: : Dance! Makeup Finish
Size: 59 mL / 2 fl oz.
Price: $19 USD

From Skindinävia’s website: "Dance! Makeup Finish holds makeup all night without touchups. Created for very active women, clubbers, and professional dancers. As you move around, your body heat immediately starts to melt and smudge makeup. Weightless mist chills the makeup surface by up to 20°F degrees for hours greatly extending wear and quality throughout very active use. Avoid the need for constant reapplying of foundation, eye shadow, blush, and concealer. A must-have for proms, dance competitions, nights out, and those who like to move. Works with all types of makeup."

Their website boasts the key benefits of:
- Surface cooling technology holds temperature to avoid melting or sliding
- Greatly extends makeup wear
- Revives fatigued makeup
- Formulated for very active use
- Saves up to 50% of makeup usage
- Helps control shine

To Purr About:
- light - does not add another layer to makeup
- seemed to extend the time my makeup lasted
- provides decent shine control

Claws Out:
- feels weird to spray something on my face after I've applied full make-up

Final Comments:
I'm not sure if this product meets all the specifications it mentions, but it did seem to extend the amount of time my makeup lasted. I usually find my makeup looking a bit dull after a couple of hours, but while using this makeup finish it seemed to hold up pretty well.

I'm not a super active person (don’t dance much or go clubbing or exercise all that much), but on a normal day-to-day it seemed to prolong my makeup life. Also, it's quick and easy and I can't even tell it's on.

For those reasons alone it has made it's way into my makeup routine.
