Target Fall Beauty Box

Happy Wednesday loves!

Have any of you noticed it’s almost impossible to grab a Target Beauty Box before it sells out?! Well miraculously, I was able to grab one this time for the Fall Beauty Box. I only paid $5 which is pretty good considering that you get samples and one or 2 full size products. I personally wanted this box just because there was more hair products for curly hair!

Skincare:

Pretty Animalz by Look Beauty: Panda Calming Facials Sheet Mask- it provides intensive hydration and calms skin with an aromatic lavender scent. I will definitely use this on my at home spa day. The first full size product!

St. Ives: Invigorating Apricot Scrub – it helps reduce breakouts before they occur while it’s made of natural exfoliants for a gentle and deep cleanse. I personally I don’t use this for my face. From what I’ve learned: Apricot seed is indeed very sharp so I only use this for my at-home pedicures.

 

Haircare:

Curls: Blueberry Leave In Conditioner – it’s a special formula that helps to hydrate, boost healthy hair growth and support strong keratin production.

SheaMoisture: Argan Oil & Argan Milk Shampoo and Blowout Creme – argan oil, shea butter and almond milk gently cleanses to tame frizz and improve shine. I’ve received this before and I’m glad I got another sample of it! The blowout creme works perfectly for blow drying curly hair.

Curls Unleashed: Curl Defining Creme – it’s a lasting moisture that treats even the most dry and damaged hair, leaving it soft, smooth and manageable.

Body Care:

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Moisturizing Body Lotion – cocoa butter enriched with Vitamin E helps to smooth marks, heal, soften and tone skin. I’ve heard about this everywhere, however, it’s my first time trying it out!

Chapstick: Hydration in Blood Orange – an advanced 3-1 formula that helps moisturize, renew and transform for more youthful-looking lips. Another full size product!

There you have it loves! A review of the Target Fall Beauty Box! What do you think? Have any of you tried or received any Target beauty boxes?

Walmart Beauty Box Winter 2016

Happy Thursday loves!

I’m back again to review the quarterly Walmart Beauty Box for Winter 2016. It’s a great way to try out new drugstore products, only costs $5 per box. It’s like basically paying only for shipping!

Pantene Pro-V Hairspray (Level 4 Extra Strong Hold)

I’m really glad I got this product especially if you can easily take it with you while traveling! I’ll probably use this when my hair is curly and need that extra hold.

nSpa Exotically Creamy Coconut Rich Body Butter

This special gem is only available at Walmart. As I opened the container, the first thing I noticed was the scent: Pure Coconut! and indeed it is creamy as it says. You can easily just place it in your purse and use it anywhere and anytime. Travel-friendly indeed.

Goody Slideproof Silicone Elastics

“Say Goodbye to Slipping and Sliding! Goody Slideproof elastics help your hair stay in place to give you a super-secure hold without sacrificing style.” That’s what they claim, I honestly haven’t tried it yet. I plan to use it though when my hair is straight. Can’t wait to use it! 🙂

Pure Silk Rich & Luxurious Shave Cream Raspberry Mist Moisturizing with Aloe

Another travel size product that any girl would love? Right?! I personally am not a fan of raspberries, but the scent isn’t overbearing thankfully.

Dial 7 Day Moisturizing Lotion

This lotion is supposed to keep skin soft up to 7 days. Who doesn’t like that? Especially with this crazy cold weather. It’s a fruity omega moisturizer.

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Boosters Facial Cleanser (White Tea & Vitamin E)

It boosts softness, evenness and radiance while it doesn’t over-dry your skin. I love getting these kinds of samples just because you can try it out for a week or so before choosing if you want to buy it again or not. There’s a very light scent to it, not too strong though.

Centrum Vitamints

Actually this is the very first time that I’ve gotten something healthy in my Walmart box. (But hey I’m not complaining) These are refreshingly minty multivitamins. You can take this anytime without having to take it with water. For people who forget to take their vitamins, this is a perfect alternative. I also liked how they included a coupon in case I wanted to purchase it later.

 

Mini Samples:

*Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream Moisturizer: I’ve gotten so many of these which is perfect considering my go to moisturizer is exactly that. If I have to travel anywhere, instead of taking that container with me, I can just take my samples with me. 😀

*Jennifer Aniston the fragrance sample along with a $3 off any Jennifer Aniston fragrance purchase of $22 or more.

*Ken Paves You Are Beautiful Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner: For Fine hair, adding fullness and body while gently cleanses. It also contains 100% Essential oils and it’s Paraben and Sulfate Free

 

 

 

 

May 2015 Birchbox Review

Happy Saturday loves!

I’m finally back from my long hiatus and hope you’re all doing great! So sorry about my recent disappearance, work was a bit on the hectic side!

birchbox

I was lucky enough to find a promo code for BirchBox from GlamLifeGuru who is a Youtuber that I’ve been following since forever! I only paid $1 to try out BirchBox. ( I always wanted to try it out, but of course my funds had other things to do and be)

This month’s theme is from Cupcakes and Cashmere (a fellow beauty blogger as well). She picked out 5 of her favorite products.

Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator

This is an exfoliating cleanser enriched with papaya, micro-crystals and aloe. It’s Paraben free, sulfate free and 99% natural! I’ve already tried this a few times and I may be in love with this cleanser! I use this before applying my foundation and I’ve found it to be very effective. It really does give you a smooth plate for your foundation. The Texture: it feels like a light cleanser with a little bit of exfoliating crystals that lathers up with water.

N.4 Lumiered-hiver Super Comb Prep & Protect

This is a leave-in conditioner that instantly detangles hair and provides color protection as well as an extra dose of UV protection. I haven’t used this yet to be honest but looking forward to trying this! I like the idea of a hair product that protects against UV rays.

MARCELLE Hydra-C 24H Energizing Hydrating Gel

I use this after washing my face but before I apply my foundation. Some times I’ll just use this as a moisturizer without any makeup! It works both ways. I do feel that my skin does get hydrated while using this which is great, considering that it’s already summer and humid. FYI: there’s no scent to this, perfect for people who are sensitive to smell.

Notting Hill Femme English Laundry

A mini perfume sample by Christopher Wicks. It’s actually a bit hard to explain the scent but something like a musky floral. I definitely love the scent though, I’m going to wear it for special occasions.

Coastal Scents Reveal 3D Palette Sampler “Desert Bloom”

This is the first time getting a BirchBox sample let alone an eyeshadow palette sample. I had no idea what to expect! It’s a cute 4 sample set: matte light brown, a shimmery gold, a rose gold, and a pinky metallic purple.
