BATH BABY

 

 

 

 

 

Need some skin beauty inspiration? I know I do sometimes, especially when it comes to having soft and clear skin or shiny hair. So here’s a list of some bath skin essentials. I’ve come across a few products I’d like to share with you all. Hope they do wonders for you as well!
Eucerin– face lotion spf 30
I use this every morning after the shower to prevent my face from burning from the sun and to prevent future skin damage. I’ve read and heard about having a basic sunscreen lotion to use on the face daily to save your face from the sun even if you stay inside most of the day, it still helps.
Clearasil– Refreshing Superfruit Toner
Honestly had a hard time understanding why I’d want to use a toner and not an all in one cleanser. But, this one has almost everything you need. It washes off your makeup along with cleaning your face and preventing acne. A plus is it smells lovely!
Up & Up (Target)– Smoothing Shaving Gel with Soy
I’ve never held onto any shaving creams or gels before because I usually just use soap. But, now that has changed because most days I use this to prevent scrapes and razor burns or bumps. It’s quite nice having a gel that foams and smells quite relaxing and soothing. This is so inexpensive and useful that I’m sure to be buying this again.
Pantene– Smooth & Sleek w/ Argan Oil
I rarely ever used Pantene, but out of the blue I decided to give this a try. I’ve seen a lot of Argan Oil in many beauty products lately because of it’s nice effects on the hair and even skin. I was surprised because this conditioner left my hair soft and smooth and shiny! It’s rare I find a shampoo or conditioner that i want to rave about, but this one is it!
Eco-Beauty– Day Moisturizer
I didn’t think much of this until I gave it a try. I read the back to see what was in the product and it is amazing to see such few ingredients and natural. I totally support brands that try to go all natural with their products and avoid harsh chemicals. I use this moisturizer before bed after I wash my face and need some soothing. It smells like flowers and definitely smells healthy, if that counts for something!
Thanks, xoxo

NYX HAUL

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s my birthday month… which I’ve probably mentioned before since this is one of my favorite months as well. So, I keep receiving deals for celebrating and found a birthday coupon from NYX. I was surprised to see that NYX cosmetics are now in Target stores because I’d always wanted to try their products without having to go somewhere else. But, I ordered these online for the coupon, or else I would’ve bought some at Target. I can guarantee that I’ll be buying more from them soon though, especially the blushes. I have started to use the products already and am happy to say they are amazing for such a low price. I have wanted to try a contour stick for quite awhile and I think I’ll be using this about every day. The blush tends to work amazing with my skin and lasts all day. I’ll do an overall review of all the products soon after using them. Wahoo!
NYX Haul

 

Powder Blush- Mocha
B16- Eye Shadow Brush for Contouring
Setting Spray- Matte Finish long lasting
Wonder Stick- Highlight and Contour in light/medium
9 Color Shadow Palette- Love in Paris- Merci Beaucoup
Review:
I mainly like the Mocha blush, Wonder stick, and shadow pallette since they incorporate well into my regular makeup routine. I like having a powder blush over a cream blush since my skin tends to be on the oily side. Even though the wonder stick is cream I still find that it does a good job of contouring my face. The palette has beautiful natural colors that aren’t too vibrant for me and blend beautifully!
Thanks, xoxo

 

 

 

Summer beauty

 

 

 

 

 

 

I always seem to get excited when a new package from IPSY arrives! You might wonder why especially since it’s just beauty samples. Nope, they aren’t just beauty samples, they are samples from different makeup brands that some I haven’t used or heard from yet and there’s plenty to use. I tend to like to mix up my beauty routine a little with new products every now and again and IPSY helps me do so. So, which products am I most excited to use? Usually, I don’t jump around for face masks just because I don’t spend a lot of time on pampering my skin routine up I guess you’d say. I like using face washes that only take a few minutes, but I will try the scrubs and mask since my skin could use some cleansing. I tend to break out a bit every other week or so. I’m most excited to try the Foundation Primer from Smashbox since I’ve seen them in Sephora about every time I walk in and am curious if they are any good. I will do a review in a few weeks on these products after I’ve sampled them. I also quite like lip stains and eyeshadow crayons since they tend to be easiest to use and last long.
Hydrating Lip Stain- J. Cat Beauty 15 Bead
Cucumber Facial Mask- Befine
Microdermabrasion Scrub- derma e
Mini Shadow Crayon- treStique in color Marimoto Pink Pearl
Photo Finish Foundation Primer- Smashbox

ABSOLUTE LOVE FOR THESE LIP BALMS

 

 

Absolute Love- Strawberry
Absolute Love- Bubble Gum
Absolute You’re The Balm- Green Apple
Can  you tell which lip balm I love the most? The green apple is my all time favorite lip balm I’ve ever had in my whole life! That’s not even exaggerating. When I first received this in one of my ipsy bags for the month, I was like, “oh no, I have to use my fingers to put this on… I don’t want this.” But, sure enough I tried it out and loved it. Why? It’s the softest lip balm I’ve ever used and is a glossy look without much color. I like this because I can pop it over a lipstick color or wear it on its own. I wanted to find more and soon enough found some others, the absolute love ones. I have to admit my favorite is still the green apple, but these are also super smooth on the lips and add more color to them as well. I would definitely recommend these out of the kindness of my heart. Haha! I rate these a 10 out of 10! They are inexpensive and worth the buy to keep your lips looking lovely.
Thanks, xoxo

YES TO EOS!!!

 

EOS
sweet mint, summer fruit, Rachel Roy Wildberry
These chapsticks or lip balms have been very popular lately and I continue to see them everywhere. From one of Miley Cyrus’s music videos to people at the supermarket or friends, these have made a hit. Now, I wanted to try them out myself and the first one I got was a gift from a friend. I wasn’t in love with the smell of the summer fruit, but it was definitely a convenient item to have within my purse. Then, I heard from my sister that the sweet mint was her favorite, after she had given me the wildberry. I went out and bought the mint one and pretty much fell in love. I would say my favorite one so far is the sweet mint one because it smells amazing and if you forgot your gum you can just pop this on your lips and you need not worry. It tastes quite nice too. I wouldn’t say they should be a massive favorite for everyone, but they are a bit better than any other chapstick I’ve ever used because they keep my lips hydrated the longest. They also have fun packaging with the roundness and colors and flavors of all of them. So, I would say go ahead and give them a try! You might like them as well:) I would rate these an 8 out of 10.
Thanks, xoxo

IPSY SUMMER BEAUTY BAG REVIEW

St. Tropez- Instant Glow Body Lotion
 
I would definitely use this product for golden glowing skin. I first like to mix it in with my every day lotion so that it goes on light at first, then I try and be more daring and use it alone. It blends into skin quite easily and doesn’t have a strong smell that overpowers your body. I would buy this if I wanted a tan without the sunshine.
worth it
it Cosmetics- CC+ Color correcting full coverage cream + anti-aging hydrating serum
Unfortunately, I did not use this product since the color was too dark. I planned on using this when my face got more sun, but that’ll be awhile. So, I had my mom try it who has a bit of a tanner face than mine and it completely blended and I couldn’t even tell she was wearing it. Flawless! She liked it because it did not appear too thick and heavy but was a more natural look.
worth it
 
Urban Decay- Revolution high-color lipgloss in colors Failbait and Bittersweet
 
I have yet to try the purplish color because it is quite daring for me, but I liked the pink shade. The only thing is, I’m not a big fan of lipgloss because it tends to be too sticky. I wouldn’t buy the glosses but I do like the Urban Decay as a brand.
Urban Decay- 24/7 Glide-on lip pencil in color Ozone 
 
Yes! A lip liner primer that is clear! Who wouldn’t want this in their makeup bag? It can be worn with any lipstick of your choice. I like this for sure.
worth it
Briogeo- Rosaro Milk- reparative leave-in conditioning spray
 
I’m not an expert at hair products so with this one I tried using it everyday to see if there was a difference. But, the result was so subtle that I haven’t noticed anything. I hope that it is preventing damage to my hair because I spray it on before I blow dry my hair, but I am not quite sure. I would definitely look up reviews on this one to know whether or not it is a good buy. The smell is quite nice as it has some natural ingredients in it.
 
Bellapierre Cosmetics- Gel Eye Liner in Ebony 
 
I admit I havent used this one yet because I prefer using a dark brown liner most of the time. I also like using gel liners because they tend to last longer.
thanks, xoxo
