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

I was lucky to get chosen from Influenster to receive the Spice VoxBox. I love getting these holiday boxes, they always come with a bunch of different goodies in there. Here’s the breakdown of what was in the box!

Botanics Organic Hydrating Day Cream ($12.99)

This hydrating organic day cream softens and moisturizes skin for 24 hours. I love the scent, when i first opened it, all I could smell was the rosehip seed oil. I can’t wait to try this! Target carries this brand.

Foot Petals (Killer Kushionz $12.95)

I actually tried this out last year, it’s so comfortable. You just trace the size of your boots, cut it to the right size and boom, you place it in the boot. And the best part is, you can put it in any type of boots, flats or heels!

Sinful Colors SinfulShine Nail Polish ($2.99)

This is the 2-step manicure with GelTech. Just apply 2 coats of Mirror Mirror (1613) and then seal with our top coat for added shine and wear.

Good Health Veggie Straws (6.75 oz $3.99)

Chips made with flavors like tomatoes, spinach, beets, broccoli and carrots.

SoapBox Shampoo and Conditioner (16 oz $5.99)

This company is a buy one give one opportunity. For every product sold, a bar of soap or month of clean water is given to a person in need. This smell is awesome, it smells heavenly! Like a tropical party, just like coconuts!

soap poo & cond

Yogi Tea ($4.99 16ct.)

Two samples of this tea! Over 40 different flavors, either herbal, green and black teas. I got the Sweet Tangerine Positive Energy and Vanilla Spice Perfect Energy.

Not Your Mother’s Whip It Up Cream Styling Mousse (2.1 oz $3/7 oz $7)

A delicious vanilla cupcake scented mousse that tames frizzies and help thick strands. Won’t leave your fingers or hair sticky!

I’m so excited for this box! Looking forward to trying the new products! Have anyone of you got the Spice VoxBox?!

 

Wet n Wild Here’s to the Wild Ones Review and Swatch!

Happy Monday loves!

Ahh I’ve been so missing and I’m so sorry. Things got a little hectic so I was away for awhile but I’m back again!

I hope you all had a great Halloween! I realized that mostly every season Wet n Wild comes out with a Limited Edition collection and this fall wasn’t an exception. I made it my mission to get all 6 nail polishes, something I’ve never done before! What I love about this, is that they all have a metallic finish!!

Fall 2015 Walmart Beauty Box

Happy Thursday loves!
Hope you’re all having a great week. It’s almost Friday!

Of course we’ve all heard about those subscription boxes and how great they are, but sometimes you just don’t want to pay $10-$15 per month. Walmart, however, has a beauty subscription that comes out every season and only costs $5 and usually includes a few full size products and lots of coupons! You’re basically just paying for shipping! This is my second time getting it, and you know what…I love it! You’ll see why in a minute. 🙂

Oz Naturals SPF 30 Tinted Moisturizer Review


Happy Wednesday loves. Hope you’re all enjoying your week!

I was lucky enough to be chosen to review the Oz Naturals 30 SPF Broad Spectrum Tinted Sunscreen with Zinc Oxide. Luck was on my side, since I’ve been actually looking for something like a body lotion but with sunscreen. 😀

oz naturals

The Claims:

A medium tint, moisturizing sunscreen lotion that absorbs quickly and provides effective broad spectrum protection from both UVA and UBA rays.

Directions: Apply to all skin exposed to the sun. Make sure you apply liberally and evenly 15 minutes before any sun exposure. Reapply every 2 hour.

My Review:

I like using it as a simple SPF cream. Most of the time I’ve been using this, it’s combined with a body butter. It has a light fragrance to it which I love. Another reason why I like this is because I like the light tint to this moisturizer/SPF. I would definitely buy this next time, especially in this crazy California weather

Bon Appetit Thin Crust Pizza Review

Happy Humpday loves!

Hope you’re all having a great week! Can’t believe it’s already Wednesday.

I was lucky enough to get chosen by BzzAgent to review the Bon Appetit Thin Crust Pizza. There’s five different varieties. I haven’t bought many frozen pizza but with this brand, I wouldn’t mind purchasing this.

  1. Mozzarella and Pesto – tangy basil pesto, sliced mozzarella and cherry tomatoes
  2. Spinaci – mouthwatering combination of mozzarella, Asiago and Parmesan cheese, spinach and a flavorful garlic sauce
  3. Pepperoni and Pesto – a bold combination of pepperoni, flavorful basil pesto and a zesty herb blend, along with Mozzarella, Provolone and Parmesan cheese
  4. Roasted Vegetables – fire-roasted tomatoes, red onion and red, green and yellow bell peppers paired with a delicious blend of mozzarella, Romano and Parmesan cheeses
  5. Trio Bacon – a decadent combination of Canadian bacon, traditional bacon and Italian Pancetta, caramelized sweet onions and mozzarella cheese

I’ve tried the Spinaci, Pepperoni Pesto and the Trio Bacon.

SPINACI: 

This one might be my favorite variety out of all five of them. Even when you open the box, you can smell the garlic and the cheeses. I’ve bought this already two times, that’s how much I love it! As it is in the oven, you can smell the flavors even more. No joke, the first time I bought this, I finished the pizza in one setting.

PEPPERONI AND PESTO:

This is my second favorite pizza available in the Bon Appetit Thin Crust Pizza. The flavors are great! Especially when sometimes you don’t want much meat on your pizza, this is perfect. The two dominant flavors in this pizza would be the pepperoni and the pesto and there’s such an equal amount of each.

TRIO BACON:

I wish I would have liked this one, but no not really. 😦 To me, it was just way too much bacon for me. I would have this once in awhile but not on a regular basis.

trio bacon

 

Where To Purchase:

I’ve seen them sold at Ralphs, Winco, Target and some Stater Bros. The cheapest place to buy it would be at Wincos, just because it’s about $3.99 and with a $1 off coupon, you’re basically buying it for only $3!

 

 

Smart Coffee App Review

Happy Saturday loves!

I was lucky enough to become selected to try out an app called Smart Coffee. This app is amazing if you’re a person who loves coffee and loves different types of roasts. You basically just have to answer a few questions and it picks out your coffee based on what you answered. It’s a free  There are 5 features on this app!

IMG_0288

Coffee 1o1

There’a a coffee guide written by Paul Katzeff who is the creator of this app. He’s also the co-founder of Thanksgiving Coffee Company and has over 45 years of experience. With every chapter there is a detailed explanation.

 

the perfect cup

Chapter 4: The Nine Basic Principles

IMG_0167

 

Glossary:

A-Z for coffee phrases and words even coffee aficionados may not know such as Maillard Reaction: at  about 440 degree F the sugars in the roasting coffee bean combine with the remaining fats and proteins in the bean to create exquisite flavors found wherever proteins, fats and sugars combine a high temperatures (BBQ, bacon and Red Ale) Who would have known?!

IMG_0866

The Perfect Cup

Now to the fun stuff! The first question they ask is about the Mouthfeel (the body of the coffee) whether you like the Bright & Lively (edgy) or the Heavy & Mellow (buttery). For this blog post, I’ll show you my custom made coffee according to my questions

IMG_8644

 

After choosing Bright & Lively, it then asks about the Acidity: is a good coffee quality and comes in different flavors and intensities.

IMG_4460

After choosing the Blueberry/Strawberry (sweet & sour notes), it takes you to the Flavors page. You can choose 3 flavors that fit your tastes.

IMG_0815

After I chose Smokey, Molasses and Honey, it takes me to my blend. I got the blend #37. What I like about this app, is that after choosing your flavors, it shows what I had picked earlier. This is what my blend says:

“You want a sweet coffee with some punch, that tastes like coffee ice cream. Like coffee ice cream with espresso notes and a hint of toasted almonds. Such a coffee exists only in the mind, but we can approach your flavor preferences with a blend of roast colors that will come close.”

According to my results, my coffee is 25% light, 50% medium and 25% vienna.

After getting the name of your coffee blend, it gives you the option of “how to use”, the roast colors or you can buy it now.

IMG_7710

I ended up ordering the Thanksgiving Coffee Co. Gorilla Fund Light Roast Fair Trade.

“A light roast coffee from Rwanda with citrus high notes over deep chocolate and maple undertones. Supports the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund’s work protecting mountain gorillas.”

IMG_0157

As for the other 2 app features, there is the picture gallery and then the blend archive. The Blend Archive is basically a list of all the different types of blends that you created.

Rate: 5 out of 5
