My Experience with Barneys Holiday Gift Bag 2017
Please see the first part of this Barneys gift bag review in this post. Let’s read more about Barneys Holiday Gift Bag review!
RéVive Intensité Les Yeux Review (0.1 oz/3ml) | Full size $225
Powered by RES and powerful peptides, this intensely rejuvenating and hydrating eye cream helps diminish the appearance of dark circles and puffiness. Improves firmness and elasticity around the delicate eye area, restoring a youthful expression.
IcanGWP Review: We are always on the lookout for a new spectacular eye cream. It’s tricky, expensive and affects the makeup. It’s tricky because the delicacy and we all have different problems we want to correct or improve. It’s expensive because they are now including mica in the eye cream to ‘instantly’ brighten our raccoon eyes but we don’t want that for the nighttime skincare regimen. When we try new eye cream (which I also tested on my eyelid), the eyeshadow and undereye makeup are a complete disaster.
I’m thrilled by the results of ReVive Intensite Les Yeux! This weightless lotion immediately moisturizes and hydrates my delicate eye area. It feels very soothing. It completely absorbed and leaves behind nothing – truly matte – voila for the makeup. My concealer stays on beautifully. If you are looking for a new intensive rejuvenating eye cream, look no further! I totally love MOST ReVive products, the peptide, lightweight or fragrance free. It is more effective than a heavy eye cream that just sits there. If you prefer a really creamy or balm-like eye care, I’d recommend adding this product as an eye serum, and see the difference for yourself!
Atelier Bloem Nieuw Amsterdam or 1614 fragrance (0.05 fl oz/1.5ml) Barneys exclusive | Full size $195
Rahua Body Shower Gel Review (0.4 fl oz/12ml) – 1.3 value | Full size $30
Rahua’s Body Shower Gel invigorates, gently cleanses, and nourishes skin for a supple, luminous glow. This formula features essences of lavender, eucalyptus, vanilla, and palo santo.
IcanGWP Review: The true star here is Palo Santo According to the Sacred wood essence, Palo Santo is a mystical tree that grows on the coast of South America. It is part of the citrus family and has sweet notes of pine, mint and lemon. The Essential Oil of this Holy Wood is great for Aromatherapy and can also be used during massage work to assist in healing. Great for calming the immune and nervous systems for faster recovery of illness.
I like the calming scent, it feels authentic, unique and so Amazonian! If you are not into apothecary style scents, this isn’t sweet nor floral. The gel is runny and does not lather much. The scent doesn’t linger after showering. Rahua doesn’t includes sulphates, and my skin doesn’t feel overly dry. It’s an excellent choice for dry or sensitive skin especially if you are looking for an invigorating shower gel/oil that is ultra nourishing. Interestingly, Rahua products can have so distinctive scents. I love Rahua’s floral scent haircare and the scent of this shower gel are not even close to that one.
An award winning modern cult classic, this is the starting point of the Eve Lom skincare regime. With a blend of four aromatherapy oils this solid cleanser melts on to the skin as it is massaged in to remove every trace of make up and city grime. Easily removed with her famous muslin cloths, these also help exfoliate the skin to leave it exceptionally clean yet comfortably soft.
How to use: Use once per day for normal/dry skin types. Use twice a day—morning and night—for congested skin. Massage a small amount onto the face and neck over dry skin. Fill your basin with warm water and immerse the muslin cloth in it. Squeeze off excess water, then hold the cloth over your face and neck for a few seconds while taking a deep breath. The heat will soften your skin and open your pores, allowing the aromatic oils to cleanse your skin of impurities. For optimum results, repeat this stage three times. Fold the hot, rinsed cloth into a square and work it in small circular movements across your face and neck to remove all traces of cleanser and makeup. The muslin cloth will gently exfoliate your skin and encourage healthy blood circulation. Finally, rinse the cloth in cool water and hold over your face and neck. This helps close your pores and give your skin a more even, toned appearance.

IcanGWP Review: Here’s the iconic cleanser from Eve Lom. People adore this cleanser and it has become a permanent part of their beauty routine. This highly emollient balm is heavy and gritty in texture. It has an earthy herbal scent – clove and eucalyptus. The process and muslin cloth gave a professional facial feel. I have combination skin and I literally won’t like any balm product. Obviously this is personal, so let me sum up what people think and why is it so perfect 😊
- The process opens pores and deep clean so well, including sunscreen and waterproof makeup.
- Smells wonderful.
- You’ll have baby smooth, plump and glowy skin thereafter.
- It helps on acne and blackheads.
- No drying cleansing.
- Joyful spa like regime.
- Vogue have described this product as … the best cleanser in the world.
- It doesn’t clean well, need an extra step.
- Smells bad.
- It’s a lengthy process for a daily cleanse.
- Broke them out.
- There is mineral oil in the ingredients (first one).
- Muslin cloth is too rough on sensitive skin and doesn’t hold up the heat.
If it’s important to you to have the best of the best evening makeup removal ritual and relaxing, give it a try.
Malin+Goetz Advanced Renewal Face Cream Review (0.24 fl oz/7ml) | Full size $120
Powered by marine algae and peptides, Malin + Goetz’s Revitalizing Eye Cream is a potent multitasker that addresses all major eye concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, dark circles, puffiness, diminishing firmness and loss of radiance.
IcanGWP Review: This product contains a lot of Squalane which is a zero-clog oil – appears to be an expensive one, and has a lot of emollients. I like that it doesn’t feel heavy, silicone-y or runny. This mid-weight cream has a nice lemonade scent. It absorbs quickly and my skin feels ultra hydrated. It has a healthy dewy finish that I like for winter months. I like that the content of silicone is quite low compared to other facial creams.
Malin + Goetz products are free of detergents, colorants, and synthetic fragrances. They are made in the US and never tested on animals. If you are looking for a modern and gentle formula, give it a try.
