How to use: Using light, smoothing strokes with the fingertips, apply locally to the T-zone, wrinkles, fine lines, and dark areas, after day cream and before make-up to optimise its hold.

IcanGWP Review: The multitask pore refiner and primer has interesting concept. According to the brand: A siliconated gel emulsion with an ultra-soft touch, which acts instantly to erase skin imperfections and highlight the eyes. The luxe light pink lotion has a nice matte finish. It provides a soft blur and lightly filled all imperfections while providing a little moisturizing but not heavy. The fragrance free corrector is much lighter than regular primers. It works brilliantly under the eyes. It held my makeup well and doesn’t ball up. It reminds me of the Canadian brand Goodskin Labs serum that I like (bought by Estee Lauder and gone now). I went biking for almost two hours and my face hasn’t change a bit, quite awesome!


MDNA Finishing Cream Review  | Full size $250

The Laundress Wah & Stain Bar in Full size $6

IcanGWP Review: I fall for MDNA. The high end brand is just stunning and done really really well. it contains M.T.PARCA Thermal Water extracted from Tuscany, Italy. According to Madonna: “People go to these spas to heal everything from arthritis to skin ailments. The water rises to the surface of the volcanic eruption, and then that’s skimmed off of the top. That’s purified, and those waters have a specific mineral composition that not only conditions, softens and hydrates, but also helps firm and illuminate the skin’s appearance.

It also contains a powerful blend of antioxidant-rich vitamin C ,olive fruit oil, moisture-retaining squalane and crushed pearls to create a luminous glow. The cream is melting into emulsion and leaves a nice glow from within look. My skin absorbs it very quickly and it doesn’t clog my pores. I adore the texture, love all the goodies it contains and love the de-stressing skin results! It should improve firmness, radiance and vitality for long term results.

Lab to beauty CBD lip balm Review in full size $30 Barneys Exclusive

Byredo Bal D’ Afrique Eau de Parfum or Sundazed | Full size $250

barneys lab to skin reviews summer beauty icangwp blog.JPG-resized

IcanGWP Review: This is a huge lip balm, 3 times bigger than ordinary lip balms! For relief from dry and chapped lips, Lab to Beauty’s CBD lip balm, combines the anti-inflammatory CBD with cocoa butter, shea butter, and coconut oil, and other moisturizers. The colorless balm contains 15 MG CBD. It can’t get you high, not the THC cannabinoids compound. The fresh mint scent is so refreshing. It has a cool effect like the famous Jack Black lip balm. The vegan lip balm taste is a little bit bitter. My lips always prefer lanolin based lip balm. I have worn this multiple times. What I can say is that my lip color seems to be a little bit brighter – more radiant in general. I don’t see the visible plumping.


Oribe Supershine Light Moisturizing Cream Review | Full size $52

Baxter of California Skin Concentrate BHA | Full size $36

IcanGWP Review: This is like a dream product for me. I always wished for a simple gloss that you can apply it to your hair and beautify it. This Oribe moisturizing cream just does what I wish for. I have straight hair and it frizzes a little bit after blow drying, kind of… okay but could be better. After I apply this, all imperfections are gone! I hope that the cream will make it really look extremely glossy but it’s very subtle. If you haven’t tried this shine cream from Oribe, now is your chance. It’s brilliant!


Harry Josh Carbon tail comb Review in full size $20

IcanGWP Review: This is a sleek great quality comb. It’s made from a strong, heat-resistant carbon material. It won’t get stuck on our hair like a sharp plastic comb. It’s an extra lightweight, slim, narrow comb and the teeth are fine. It’s very handy for styling and making parts  perfect.  It’s a great pro tool that won’t melt during the heat-related styling.

Diptyque Eau de Minthe EDP Review | Full size $175

barneys gift bag 22 samples review by icangwp beauty blog june 2019 hourglass mascara review

IcanGWP Review: Here comes a brand new Diptuqe Eau de Minthé (launched last month on May 2, 2019)! And…. skeptical! Mint perfume? Hmm barber shop or toothpaste? The mint is not overpowering at all. It’s a very high quality well-thought perfume. The herbal minty fades after a few minute… literally gone. It’s subtle and sophisticated – not too sweet or manly later on. The quiet patchouli, fern and geranium are very beautiful and sensual! If you want to try Fougère perfumes without lavender, this is a good one.

This is one of the best base note fragrances I have ever worn. The silage is so powerful. It left a beautiful faint mellow creamy white floral scent the next day.

Barneys Summer Beauty Bag 2019 is quite extraordinary. Your skin is worth it! Instead of creating a gift bag full of best sellers, repeat samples, Barneys always takes a risk and spoils us with alternative beauty. They somehow know we haven’t had a chance to buy these items but they really know we’ll fall for it! I highly recommend it.
