Multi Pot by Gabriel Cosmetics

Product Description: The three in one product for the classic modern woman on the go! The lightly bronzed pink tone adds a subtle sun kissed flush that is blendable and buildable. Another Gabriel secret to mistake-proof beauty.

Ingredients: Butyrospermum Parkii (Sear Butter), Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Emulsifying Wax, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Extract*, Mica, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract*, Magnolia Acumita Bark Extract, Iron Oxides

EWG's Skin Deep - Cosmetic Safety Database Rating: None (not on it).

My thoughts: Florentina, Florentina. What a beautiful name to give to this beautiful color. 

Multi Pot is a newly released 3 in 1 product by Gabriel Cosmetics a month or so ago. This product can be used as a blusher, bronzer, lipstick, and eye shadow. Ok yes, I added that bronzer up, but it could add a little bit of shine and color for some of the people with lighter skin. 

I personally used this product in all the four different ways. However, I was only successful and satisfied with one (sadly, I'm very picky). 

The first way I hurriedly tried was as a lipstick. As some might know, I've been obsessed with natural/organic lipsticks recently. However, I was a little disappointed with the way it turned out. 



The color is beautiful. It gives my lips that beautiful natural pinkish look. However. It's drying. I don't understand! The product is creamy, oily, moisturizing, but as soon as it touches my lips, it dries it out. I constantly had to provide some saliva to the upper and lower lips to moisturize. Oh, but look at that color. So beautiful...

It didn't really work out as an eye shadow either. This time, it wasn't because the product was drying. No. Contrary to that, it was really moisturizing. The product even lasted for a really long time, and I had absolutely no primer at all. 

Florentine swatch
The texture was amazing, and it felt really smooth when applied. There was no smudging, no fall-outs, and easily blendable, but sadly, the color was a bit off for me. It was so bad that I couldn't even take a picture. It looked as if someone has hit me in both eyes...or that my eyes were having some kind of inflammation. Well, this could have been because of my own complexion. Many of the eye shadow colors don't work well on me, and I guess this one wasn't an exception either.  However, if Multi Pot came in a different color that would work for my eyes, I would definitely get it as an eye shadow. 

And yes, it was really successful as a blusher. I loved it. The color was perfect. It gave me that slight pink undertone that looked really natural, and it lasted for quite a long time. The product is again, easily blendable, creamy, and moisturizing. It barely felt like anything when applied on the face. 

If you want to apply this as a bronzer, make sure you only apply the slightest little bit of product. It's not really a bronzer bronzer. It just adds some shine and color to the face. I personally think it would work best on people with really light skin.

Overall, this is an amazing product even though some parts didn't really work out for me. However, I really love it as a blusher, and I think I'm going to add this to my every day natural look blush.

Summer is here, but weirdly, I'm still having dry patches all over my face. I used to have very oily face during summers, so I'm not really sure what happened during this winter. My face did not show a single sign of oiliness even though it's been 25 degrees and up for the past few days. Good thing I got this little face oil to treat my dryness. I haven't tried it enough times to give an accurate review on this product yet, but up to now, it's been working pretty good. 

I've only applied this at night before bed time. I don't dare wear this in the morning yet as it's quite oily. Well, it's an oil...The smell of it is rose-like with a slight hint of spiciness, which is a lovely smell, and the consistency of it is the exact same as any cooking oil (but better). It's liquid, runny, and oily. 

This product currently falls into my so-so category as I've not seen any amazing effects with it yet. It definitely is moisturizing, but only when combined with another moisturizer. I've tried it alone, and I've woken up finding my dry patches more pronounced than when applied with moisturizers. Furthermore, I'm not sure if my "dry" patches are caused by my allergies, or if it's just because this oil is not moisturizing enough for me. So I'll have to give this product a little more time to test that out. 

Apart from claiming that the product is very moisturizing, it's also claiming that it reduces the appearance of fine lines. I sadly (well, luckily) don't have much fine lines at the moment, so I'm not quite sure how to test this claim, but I'll see how that work out and update you on this. 

Overall, my first impression is still pretty positive. I'm still calculating the amount I need to fully moisturize my face. I'm thinking that my dry patches might be because I'm not applying enough oil on my face...oh well. We'll see. But overall, this product is  really good and I'm enjoying it.

aquarian bath tooth powder
Cinnamon Tooth Powder

Oh dear tooth powder. I tried desperately to love you. However, there's just something about you that just isn't right, and I can't figure out what it is. Your ingredients, which are composed of Food Grade Bentonite Clay, Organic Cinnamon Powder, Activated Charcoal, 5:1 Myrrh Powder, and Organic Stevia are great. I've tried you every night, every two nights, once a week, and once a month, but nothing seem to be working out between us. I think it might be because I have difficulty understanding you.

You came in this very cute little 1 oz. silver tiny can at a price of $6.50. Your travel fee was as expensive as you, so it doubled up your original price which was quite bank breaking for a tooth "paste". You are also very messy. I try desperately to keep every little tiny powder so that I don't waste any, but you just don't seem to want to agree with me. As soon as I open up the can, you fly everywhere on my sink and on my hands. And sadly, this happens every time I open the can.

However, I can't deny it, you make my teeth feel extremely clean and smooth. I would use my little one dollar store 1/8 tea spoon cup, and scoop a tiny little amount from the can in the palms of my left hand. I would then dab and lightly scrub off the powder on my hand using my already damp toothbrush. But as soon as you reached my teeth, I would feel this very uncomfortable feeling going up my spine. And each time I moved my toothbrush, I would have the feeling of a fingernail scratching a blackboard. No I know, you're not doing this, but this is the feeling I'm getting and it's making me feel uncomfortable. 

But I'll wait patiently. I know that in the near future, we'll work well together. And who knows, maybe you'll be able to make my teeth shine like the sun.
