Physicians Formula Argan Wear BB Cream


I recently went to CVS and spotted the Physicians Formula new Argan Wear BB cream.
I watched YouTube video reviews and it lead me to want to buy it. 

I'm not so easily persuaded to buy the new beauty items that come out on the market but when I see something that I truly like and curious to try then I go out and buy it.

What captured my attention to buy the Argan Wear was the fact that it is a BB Cream and sunscreen with Argan oil and it was a drugstore product.

I already use Argan oil as a daytime moisturizer every morning so I figured a tinted moisturizer with Argan can be even more beneficial and act as a foundation without it feeling to heavy on my skin.

So, CVS sells Argan Wear for $16.00 and as soon as I saw the price tag for the tiny 1.2 fl oz tube, I said nope! 

And I put it back but then I had a coupon from the red coupon machine for $3 bucks off and their special was, if you spend $12 bucks or more on any Physicians Formula product, you get $8 bucks back in rewards.

Ding Ding Ding! That was music to my ears making my Argan Wear purchase come out to $4 bucks! Yay!

So let's review this Argan oil infused BB cream shall we? 

The packaging is beautiful, small at 1.2 fl oz but beautiful and it's totally Moroccan themed from the tube all the way to the top.

Argan oil is from Morocco so it's very fitting for the design in the packaging.

What it's supposed to do:
Details from physicians Formula's

Physicians Formula Argan Wear Renew BB Cream is a luxurious, high performance formula that will even out your skin tone, vanishing flaws and imperfections and smoothing skin texture without ever leaving a greasy feel or finish. SPF 30. Infused with 100% Pure Argan Oil.

Isn't she a pretty little thing? LoL

I got the color in Light/Medium but other shades are available.

At first, I applied too much and it was a little caked on but then I took some off and it was better.
It has nice coverage that can be buildable.

I did notice that I needed to moisturize before using this product because without my moisturizer, I applied it on my T-Zone and I had some dry patches.

But if you have oily skin, it's best not to moisturize prior to using this. 
My advice is test it out and see.
This was my first attempt using the Argan Wear.

Now for the second try, it was much better.
I moisturized with my Argan oil, I let it set and used my stipple brush to apply the Argan Wear and it was a better experience that proved better results.

In the picture below, all I used was my moisturizer, the Argan Wear, lipliner and lipstick ,some tinted brow gel and some concealer for my under eye area and chin.
I loved the results and it gave me great coverage.

So my thoughts are:

  • Love the packaging
  • Love the results
  • Love the scent, it's a strong floral exotic scent but then it goes away
  • Love that it feels nice on my skin and gives me a matte finish with a beautiful glow
  • Love that it contains Argan Oil
  • Love that it has an SPF 30
I dislike the Price, $16 Bucks is a little to high for a drug store product in such a small bottle.

Overall this is a nice product.

Will I buy it again ? Yes!
Would I buy it without a coupon? No!
But if I can't get it for $4 bucks again than I would pay $10 dollars for it without hesitation.

So, these are my honest opinions on how the Argan Wear BB cream worked for me. 
Have you tried it? Do you like it? If so comment below:)

Press Sample: Product given by the Company for testing and reviewing purposes.

I was very excited when I was contacted by this cool jewelry sub box called Cate and Chloe.

Cate and Chloe also likes too add extra goodies in their VIP boxes it maybe a beauty product or another jewelry piece plus being a VIP has Perks:

Are you ready to see my Cate and Chloe VIP August box? 

Then keep scrolling for a special offer as well:)

Here she is!

The tissue paper adds a girly and a summer touch to it, it's very pretty so I decided to incorporate it as a background for my pictures.

In the month of August, Cate and Chloe teamed up with Sally Hansen so every VIP member will get a bottle of nail polish in a velvet drawstring pouch.

Also included is a little card with the name and description of your jewlery pieces for that month.

I recieved the Darlen Tender Love stud earrings in rose gold. They are available in silver and gold too.
Retail value: $109.00 without membership

From the site:
This darling earring is composed of two intertwining hearts, one is simply finished the other is frosted with dainty glistening CZ stones. Our Darlene heart earrings would make a pretty present for any loved one from granddaughter to girlfriend. 

Product Specifications:

  • intertwined Heart Earring

I really like the Cate and Chloe gift boxes they arrive in.

These earrings are so delicate and beautiful:)

And my final Cate and Chloe piece is this beautiful Rose Gold Bracelet with a retail value of $125.00
The bracelet runs small but I was relieved that it fit once I clasped it together.

From the site:

A delicate rose gold bracelet with a secure snap clasp that perfectly polishes off your weekend wardrobe. Our Brielle Bracelet will stay with you when you head out for your... Fill in the blanks:)

This bracelet is gorgeous!

The great thing about Cate and Chloe is that each VIP selection is different and unique.

Influenster YSL Touché Éclat Box

Leave a Comment

I was recently chosen by Influenster to receive the VIP Influenster vox box featuring the iconic brand Yves Saint Laurent.
I did an unboxing video on The Color Wheel Gallery's Youtube Channel.

You can check it out here:

Now on with the review:
The Influenster box was small this time around but its contents were high end.

The first item in the box was:

Yves Saint LaurentTouche Eclat Blur Perfector

Retail value: $55
Specs from The Sephora site:

What it is:
A blur perfector compact that perfects the skin while retaining its luminous glow. 

What it does:
This portable perfector is Yves Saint Laurent’s first ever blur perfector encased within a compact. It transforms from a balm to a powder upon application to soften the skin’s imperfections—creating a transparent yet subtle, rosy-glow effect. Use it alone as an allover complexion perfector, to set makeup, or as a mattifying touch up to sweep away shine and hide imperfections. Featuring one universal shade that complements all skin types, it instantly minimizes the look of pores so that skin feels smoother and the complexion appears more even. 

What else you need to know:
This product is noncomedogenic and ideal for all skintones and skin types.

Isn't she a beauty?

The final item was:

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Blur Primer 

Retail value for full size: $52
But the one in the vox box is a smaller size at 10 mil or .33 fl and the full size is 1fl oz  so I'm not sure of the retail value for the 10 mil. Maybe half of the $52 LOL
Specs from The Sephora site:

What it is:
An illuminating primer that blurs imperfections and boosts the radiance of foundation. 

What it does:
Touche Elcat Blur Primer preps skin for foundation application, creating an improved, refined appearance: pores seem to be minimized, skin texture feels smoother, and skintone is more even. It’s enriched with four nourishing oils—corn oil, apricot kernel oil, passiflora oil, and rice bran oil—to leave skin feeling incredibly soft without a greasy residue. Packed with blur technology, this universal primer provides a subtle, golden shimmer for ultimate luminosity. 

What else you need to know:
This product is noncomedogenic, and it’s suitable for all skintones, including sensitive ones.

Ooh, don't you just love Sparkles?

Now let the testing begin...
After I cleansed my face and put on my Argan oil moisturizer, I let the Argan oil set for 10 minutes.

Then I applied the YSL Blur Primer with the wand and used a little because a little is all you need. 
I used it on my cheeks, nose, chin and forehead and even under my eyes.

The Results ...

Here I am!  with the YSL Blur Primer on and some concealer.
I was happy that the gold particles did not appear on my face and it left my skin feeling silky and amazing and gave my skin a glow.
(Mind you this is me under the weather with a cold)

After that step I applied the rest of my makeup.
I used a mineral powder foundation, then some blush, some mascara, lip liner, lipstick, highlighter for nose and cheekbones and tinted brow gel.

The next step, to try the YSL Blur Perfector on to set my makeup.
After my face was done, I took the little sponge poof it comes with and patted some on my forehead, nose, chin and neck.

This is luxury for sure! I thought my powder would slide off but it stood in place because the YSL Blur perfector transformed into a matte finish on my face. So it's true it's a balm that transforms into a powder. 
My face felt so soft and silky not oily at all.

Here are my results!

Both of these high end products can be worn alone. I did just that in the first pic with some concealer and it felt great on.

I'll probably test the blur perfector that way too another day.

I threw the poof away because it can cause bacterial build up so from now on I'll use my beauty sponge or fingers.

My final thoughts:
These products are amazing and leave my skin feeling luxurious.
Are these a must have?
No, but if you can afford it and fall for the beautiful packaging then Yes!

A Symbol of Tenderness Strength And Stamina

Press Sample: Product given by the Company for testing and reviewing purposes.

I received this product for testing and review purposes.
This is such a beautiful pendant. 
I thought it was going to look cheesy because of the picture but it's not. 
The twin horse head pendant is a bit heavy and sturdy which is good. 
The chain is delicate and it's a great length that hangs perfectly in the center of the chest. 
This pendant to me is a symbol of tenderness, strength and stamina combined. 
You can find this beautiful piece by Embolden Jewlery on Amazon for $9.99

Who's That Girl?

Press Sample: Product given by the Company for testing and reviewing purposes.

I recieved the long black Louise Maleys wig and I absolutely wore it with finesse.
It looked very real and it took me back to my days in High School when my hair was long.
My hair length now is shoulder length and i'm trying to let it grow long but of course not that long.
This silky and soft wig is beautiful with straight side bangs and you can play with it adding different hairstyles like braids or twists or adding hair accessories to jazz it up. 

It can be easily combed as well and a must for cos play.
Here are some pictures of me in the long black wig by Louise Maleys. 

Even my little girl had a chance to play dress up with it:)

The Louise Maleys Wig is available on Amazon for $19.99
