Moroccan Gold Series Treatment Mask Review

Happy first Monday of summer loves!

Can you believe we’re already in summer?! Time goes by so fast these days right?!

So this might be a first for me but I’m almost hitting pan on one of my favorite hair treatments ever! Hence, this blog post: a review on my Moroccan Gold Series Treatment Hair Mask.

I was lucky enough to get this with my Winter 2018 Fab Fit Fun box and I’ve been using it ever since. Somehow it lasted me till now!

What is it? 

It’s an intense care treatment for dry and damaged hair. It seals split ends, strengthens hair, and makes your hair more manageable with a strong blend of keratin and pure Moroccan argan oil.

How I use it? 

For the most part, I do use it as an overnight hair treatment. Simply use your shampoo and conditioner as usual. After I get out of the shower, I’ll towel dry my hair and start applying the mask in sections until my hair is saturated with the treatment. I’ll then put it in a bun and cover my hair using the satin cap bonnet. Then when I take a shower, I just rinse it out real good. That’s it!

My Outcome: 

I really do love it! When I apply it after the shower its gives you somewhat of a light feeling but then again i saturated my hair with this stuff! When I rinse off the deep conditioner (as I call it), my hair feels amazing and feels hydrated. I’ve recently have started to love my curls so I need all of the moisture I can get especially in this crazy Los Angeles heat.  As for the scent, let me tell you! It’s an light argan scent where you can smell other oils such as rosemary, tea tree, sunflower, shea and avocado oil.

Hello Loves!

I’m finally back after a long absence, it’s been a strange year and a half as of late! But I’m back for good!

I’m back with a well needed new Summer 2020  FabFitFun box and these always excite me since I’ve upgraded to an annual subscription with more goodies in store!

dr. Brandt Do Not Age Triple Peptide Eye Cream $82 – 0.5 oz/15 g

Now that I’m in my 30’s, I have to start paying attention to my eye wrinkles, am I right? This could not come at the perfect time!

What is it? A lightweight hydrating eye cream that helps reduce and get rid of wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness around the eyes.  For all skin types

Phospholipids, Ceramide 3, and shea butter helps strengthen skin, and replenish moisture levels. Caffeine, which helps to reduce puffiness and look of dark circles.

HydroPeptide Moisture Reset Face Oil $120 – 1 fl oz/30 mL

I’ve been getting more interested in using more face oils so again this was a perfect product to choose!

What is it: This is an antioxidant-rich blend of a dozen precious oils to look in moisture and helps the skin from environmental stressors (i.e. pollution) and free radicals.

Ingredients: flower extracts and avocado, pumpkin oils and rice bran extract

I’ve only used it a few times now but so far, I am loving it! It doesn’t give you a greasy oily feeling as it lounging on your skin. As for the scent, it’s a very light floral scent, it’s not very noticeable IMO.

How to Use: Dispense 3-5 drops in your hand. Using gentle sweeping and patting motions to apply to your face, neck. You could even use a few drops with your moisturizer, serums or even body lotions for an extra boost of moisture.

Kate Somerville Goat Milk Moisturizing Cream $65 – 1.7 fl oz/ 50 mL

I’ve been in search of a new moisturizing cream since we all have been wearing masks due to COVID 19.

What is it? A daily moisturizer to deliver hydration and help repair the skin’s natural lipid barrier. This is a gentle formula that instantly absorbs to create a beautiful and healthy glow.

Ingredients: Jojoba and avocado to help hydrate and condition. Aloe to naturally sooth and help calm skin. Grapeseed Oil and Vitamin and natural antioxidants that help neutralize free radicals.

I love this moisturizer as it has a very light consistency. It’s not too greasy at all and it really does remind me of a thicker type of milk.

Silked Satin Pillow Sleeve $29.50

In my opinion, you can never have too many pillow sheets, especially this one! I have heard that silk pillow sheets really do help with us frizzy hair girls.

What is it? It’s an open ended design that fits most standard, queen king pillows. 100% Poly Satin Charmeuse front while the back is 95% Rayon 5% Spandex that is non slip. It is a perfect traveling essential for covering those pesky hotel pillows. It prevents beadhead, hair breakage, dry and frizzy hair, prevents skin creases, fine lines and skin irritations.

WINKY LUX Uni-Brow Universal Eyebrow Pencil $16

A Univeral brow pencil that works with both light eyebrows and darker eyebrows. Who would have thunk it!! I had my doubts until I tried it on my eyebrows (I have dark brows) and I also tried it on my mom (she has light sparse brows) Well I can tell you, I’m a firm believer on this one!

What is it? A cool toned eyebrow pencil that works for most brow shades. The firm texture allows for maximum control, creating a universally flattering eye look everytime!

Pro Tips: *Increase your application pressure for darker toned brows. *Apply softer pressure for light-colored brows. *

Cali Cosmetics Foot Cream with Menthol in Tarocco $24 – 2.5 fl oz / 75 mL

We are slowly entering summer territory, so it’s a no brainer that we got a foot cream in our Fab Fit Fun Summer box.

*Fun Fact: Tarocco is actually a Sicilian Blood Orange*

Simply apply on to feet and massage from your heels to your toes. Use twice daily.

Spongelle Coconut Verbena Hand Cream $18

Another thing that you can never have too many of is of course hand creams. I probably have one hand cream in every purse I have!

This hand cream screams summer vibes to me! It’s infused with Spongelle’s signature scents and patented Salsphere ingredients, this hand cream will help sooth, nourish and hydrate your hands and cuticles. Especially after using hand sanitizer all the time!

Ingredients: Hyaluronic acid (women’s best friend), shea butter, argan and macadamia seed oils.

The Lyfestle Co. Beach Mist $42 – 4oz / 125 mL

Again, another great summer skincare product! As we all know, we need to always refresh and make sure our skin is hydrated especially in these summer months, this is where The Lyfestle Co. Beach Mist comes into play.

What is it? Soothing aloe combines with a cooling combination of mint and lavender which helps moisture and hydrate the sun drenched skin.

Pro Tip: Store it in the refrigerator for extra cooling effect!

The next 2 products were actually from the Add-Ons event. The Add-Ons event is where you can also purchase other products from the Fab Fit Fun store.

type: A Deodorant with Sweat Activated Technology in The Achiever Ocean Mint

I’m in the process of getting rid of all of my other aeresol deodorants since it’s bad for us ultimately. This is aluminum free! I first heard about this brand was a few years ago at an event. So when I saw this I just had to order it. The best part is the scent! It reminds me of the beach with a hint of mint. Okay okay, it’s not a hint of mint, it’s a bit stronger than just a hint! LOL

 Ouai Leave In Conditioner 

The very first time I heard about this and/or even tried it out was from my very first FabFitFun box that I signed up for. I’ve had it for about 2 years now, I still haven’t even hit pan yet. However, I knew I needed to reorder this just just in case I can’t get my hands on it again and for the price as well! At Sephora it’s $26 while I ordered mine for $7!

There’s something I just love about it! The scent, the formula of the leave in conditioner, how it just oomphs my curly hair.

 

 

 

Fall 2018 FabFitFun Box

Happy Monday loves!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend! Here we are, back at work on Monday! :p

I took the plunge in ordering the Fall 2018 FabFitFun Box when I received an email with $10 off your first box! Who can say no to that?

Let me tell you, I was not disappointed! There’s a mix of beauty, self care, fitness, jewelry, and accessories!

This box originally is $49.99 and it’s sent every season. In my opinion, this is a no brainer since the total value is $295!!!! :O I don’t know about you….But I’m sold! Another plus is that you can customize a few products which is also nice! Meaning: you have 3 choices and you get to pick one!

GLAMGLOW BUBBLESHEET OXYGENATING DEEP CLEANSE MASK (2 Pack) – $18

I’ve heard many great things about this brand, especially the mask! This mask will have you glowing! It’s a weekly bubble detox to put skin in it’s happy place. I haven’t used this one yet but they give you a 3D bubble experience!

Spongalle Body Buffer in “Freesia Pear” – $16

So I’ve never used a body wash infused buffer but hey it sounds and smells amazing!! You can use it more than just one time which is always great! It’s dermatologist tested and works for all skin types. It cleanses, exfoliates, hydrates and massages. Apparently the exfoliating massage texture changes to a soft, silky one as you squeeze it.

AHAVA Mineral Hand Cream – $33

This for me is a classic. I love the scent and it’s so moisturizing! Created with Dead Sea minerals, this mineral rich hand cream instantly improves skin’s moisture level. It also smoothes rough, dry skin, and restores suppleness. I’m addicted to the scent FYI!

Free People x Understated Leather Starry Eyed Travel Eye – $40

So this is a vegan leather eye mask that has a removable, non-toxic cooling insert to keep you feeling and looking fresh. This would be great for days or nights where I have those nasty headaches. The adjustable straps offer a comfy fit while the beautiful metallic patchwork keeps you dreaming with the stars!

Summer & Rose Brittany Tote in “Navy” – $54

I’ve never seen anything like this before but it’s adorable and simple! Rope handles, stripes on stripes, and vegan leather, this is a tote where you should reserve a spot in your handbag collection! It also has two pockets, making it easy to carry around your essentials as well as it zips up.  It’s really a cute but especially for the summer season!

CYLO Cobra Bluetooth Wireless Earbuds in “White/Rose Gold”- $40

I’ve actually been looking for a Bluetooth for the past few weeks instead of just using Bluetooth Speaker, so this came at the perfect time! They’re chic and comfy Bluetooth earbuds which came with interchangeable buds. They also include the onboard controls and neck strap which helps you enjoy your music tangle-free.

CUSTOMIZATION 1: ELEMIS Papaya Enzyme Peel – $33

This was one of the customization products that I could choose from two options. I’m a sucker for skincare, so that was a given! This is a rinse-off cream which is made with exfoliating papaya, milk protein, and antioxidant-rich vitamin E that works together to exfoliate and purify tired, lackluster skin.

CUSTOMIZATION 2: Crown Brush 6 Piece Brush Set in “Black + Rose Gold” – $75

This was the second customization that was offered. I have heard of Crown Brushes back when I was in my esthetician program but never had a chance to buy them. They’re made of 100% synthetic bristles, this 6 piece brush set has everything you need to perfect any look! Plus, it’s an easy way to travel with. The brushes include: Powder, blush, concealer, shadow, blending and eyeliner.

Sponsored: ApotheCARE Essentials

This is more of a extra bonus product and hey it’s haircare! I received the Vanilla Argan Oil Sweet Almond Shampoo and COnditioner. It’s refered to as ‘The Replenisher: intense hydration for dry hair”. I also go the Rosehip Oil Geranium Aloe Vera shampoo and conditioner. This one is called “The Booster: dynamic volume for fine + flat hair”.

There you have it folks! Now let me tell you, I don’t think I’d ever cancel this subcription box! As you can see, everything I received in total was more than how much I paid!
