Best of October Roundup - Cellbone Technology, Sunday Riley, Natura Bisse, Lush, Caudalie

Hello, Every year in October, I find myself switching skincare and makeup in time for the new season and in hopes to improve my skin and overall appearance before my birthday.  I admit vanity gets the best of me as my birthday approaches each year.

Let's get started with what I have been loving lately...

Skincare - Cellbone Technology, Sunday Riley, Natura Bisse

Left to right:

Cellbone Technology is a lesser known skincare line from the US.  I buy their products directly from their website.  Cellbone offers pharmaceutical quality products using pure ingredients.  Some of the core ingredients in their products include Hyaluronic Acid, Collagen, Acetyl Hexapeptide 3, Idebenone, L-Ascorbic Acid, and vital nutritive botanicals.

I first learned about Cellbone from a Hong Kong blogger, BeautyQQ aka Queenie Chan, about two years ago (see one of her videos below, it is in English and Chinese with caption in English).  This line is apparently very popular in Hong Kong, a very beauty conscious country.  

I have been using various Cellbone products over the past two years and these are some products that I have been using over the past two months:

Super AOX Antioxidant Firm Moisturizer Cream - (Day and Night) a Must Have antiaging treatment!

Sunday Riley Start Over Active Eye Cream - (Day and Night) also mentioned here

Natura Bisse Diamond Mist - (Day and Night)

Natura Bisse Diamond Extreme - (Day and Night)

Natura Bisse Diamond Drops - (Day) 

Both Sunday Riley and Natura Bisse products are expensive, but these products are worth every penny and they do last for many months.  I have tried both lines in the past and saw changes in my skin, therefore I am not opposed to repurchasing these brands from time to time.

Makeup - Lush Emotional Brilliance in Intuitive and Perspective

I want to finish where I left off last time when I talked about Lush Emotional Brilliance.  Today I will share with you the other two colors that I acquired, Intuitive and Perspective.

Intuitive comes off as an electric neon green color for the eyes, it is surprisingly wearable and fun.  I use it all over the lid alone or sometime with a darker green color on the outer corners for depth.

Perspective is a mauve pink. It is not the most flattering pink for my lips, but it is a good one if you prefer pinks with mauve undertones.  It is a nice color for Fall if you are not into reds or the darker colors and prefer something more subtle.  I love using it as a cream blusher, it is so easy to blend out and it lasts all day.  

As I mentioned before, I like these bottles of cream colors from Lush.  They are fabulous to play with and they are available at Lush and

Body Care - Caudalie Divine Oil

What can I say?  Housed in an elegant amber colored glass bottle, Caudalie Divine Oil is simply Divine!  I use it all over from head to toe.  The main ingredients include the oils from argan, sesame, hibiscus, grape seed, and shea butter.  It is a dry oil, but it is slightly heavier than other dry oils that I have tried.  It is not greasy by any means and it is easily absorbed into the skin.  The scent is a wonderful warm floral, a perfect treat for Fall!

Thanks for reading!  Have a good weekend!  Until next post......


  1. These are great products. I am especially interested in the Lush ones.

    1. You will love Lush Emotional Brilliance, the concept is like face painting. Love!

  2. great review dear! the Lush products seem so fine xx

    Letters To Juliet

    1. I checked out your blog, you are so young and so cute!

  3. That oil sounds DIVINE! I really love the simplistic approach the French have towards skincare. And thank you for sharing that vid from Queenie! I haven't checked out her Youtube channel in a while and this serves as a nice reminder. :) I will be checking out Cellbone Technology's site!

    (London Sole is on my "to buy/try" list ;)

    1. I have re-purchased Cellbone over and over again. Their prices and quality are hard to beat. I am a firm believer in using topical antioxidants and vitamins to give your skin extra protection against environmental stressors....I hope to check out London Sole very soon:)

  4. Cellbone Technology products sound very interesting. I like that they use pure ingredients. I'll have to check out their website. Queenie Chan reminds me abit of the actress Rosamund Kwan.

    Hope you're enjoying the weekend!

    1. @The Beauty Professor, Thanks for stopping by! I would love to hear what you think about Caudalie and Natura Bisse if you ever get to try out the products! I think you will not be disappointed:)

  6. Hmmm...this sounds like great products. I am curious about the divine oil. I am looking for a product that can help keep my skin moisturized for longer hours so I guess I would give this a try.

  7. I think Queenie chan is amazing. Love her videos. The lush colors look so good. Thanks for the review. :)

  8. I LOVE BeautyQQ! :)

    Sometimes, even when her videos have very few english translations, I still sit through them just because I enjoy watching her and admire her love for life and the beautiful things in it :)

  9. that sounds amazing.. French riviera scent in a bottle sounds amazing!! Thanks for sharing this :)

  10. Those lush colors are awesome. Have you tried using the eye stuff as an eyeliner? I use my gold as a double liner with either black or brown and it comes out awesome and makes for a really long lasting eyeliner. I feel like that green would make an amazing eyeliner!
