3 Surprising Products for this Summer: Garnier Gel-Cream, Korres Body Butter and IT Cosmetics Brow Power

What was surprising about  these 3 products? I was surprised how much I liked them!

Garnier Nutritioniste Refreshing Gel-Cream for Normal to Oily skin
The surprise? The cooling effect: it's like a little splash of water on your face. The product itself is pretty cool too, it's a light green gel. I didn't care for the scent but this is a nice day cream for summer.

Korres Fig Body Butter
Sometimes good things come in small packages (I'm sorry but this does not apply to men!)
The surprise? This butter is silicone free, mineral oil free and I actually love the fig scent from the fruit extract, it's not a very common scent so it might not be everybody's cup of tea. It does moisturize really well, though.

IT Cosmetics Brow Pencil
When I saw this universal eyebrow pencil, I thought I had to try it because I didn't believe it would work...the surprise? It does work. First of all, I'm not a fan of brow pencils - I prefer brow shadow duos - but after using this brow pencil, I got such a natural effect that I've incorporated this pencil in my daily makeup routine.

Now here is the kicker: I asked my blonde friend Nina to test it and again she loved it. Obviously, she didn't need to use as much as me. She was a bit pissed though, because she had just spent a good deal of money on makeup including a Lancome brow pencil and mascara (her Definicils Lancome mascara was fabulous, however)...oh well that's what friends are for!

I have no idea if it would work on a red-head but it worked on my very dark thick eyebrows and on my friend's light eyebrows, so to me it delivered on its "universal" promise. Don't ask me how this is possible, I'm still scratching my head on this one.  You can buy this pencil only on the Shopping Channel in Canada ($24) or on the IT Cosmetics website.
