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?

Chef’d Spoon Meal Plan Review

Happy Friday loves!

Just by signing up for Chef’d emails, they sent me a Spoon University Meal Plan box. Let me tell you, I didn’t expect the box to be that big!! They sent a variety of snack and beverage products.

It’s such a great idea for college students who are away from home, you can basically just get your meals that you choose, especially for those that spend so much money on fast food. *We’ve all been there!*

Meal types: beef, pork, poultry, vegetarian, shellfish, fish and lamb! Then based on your meal options, they bring you a few different recipes to choose from. After that they also have a few other box options such as the Grab n’ Go, Snacks and/or Fruit.

With every meal kit, you’ll receive: 2 pre-portioned fresh meals, 6 Grab n’ Go Meals, 10 beverages & snacks and 5 assorted fruits.

Spoon box

Here’s what I got in my Snacks box!

Beverages: SmartWater, SmartWater Sparkling, Zico Coconut Water and Coca Cola Life with Cane Sugar and Stevia

beverages

Granola and Oatmeal: Quaker Real Medley Apple Walnut Flavor Oatmeal and Purely Elizabeth Cranberry Pecan Granola and Puffs Cereal

granola cereal

Popcorn and Crunches: Skinny POP Popcorn, Dark Chocolate Harry & David Moose Munch Gourmet Popcorn and Chia Crunch Coconut. 2 doses of popcorn?! I’m definitely not complaining. Chia Crunch Coconut is freeze dried coconut slices with chia seeds.

crunchies

Quest Beyond Cereal Protein Bars in Cinnamon Roll, Waffle and Chocolate flavors. These would work best after a workout!

quest

Chocolate: 2 Nib Mor all natural superfruit cacao bits “Daily Dose of Dark” and Coffee Thins, the Edible Coffee Treat Espresso. So I can actually have chocolate infused with coffee?! That sounds like heaven to me!

Fruits: Sun Maid Sour Strawberry Golden Raisins and That’s It Zesty, 2 apples + cinnamon. I grew up on Sun Maid Raisins so finding another flavor brings back so many memories! As for the fruit bar, I’ve tried it at Starbucks before and its a simple fruit bar.

fruity

Protein Bars: Clif Bar Sierra Trail Mix which has peanuts, chocolate and raisins. RXBar, a 12gram Protein bar with 3 egg whites, 4 almonds, 6 cashews, 2 dates and no B.S.

February’s Daily Goodie Box Preview

Happy Wednesday loves!

What would you say if you could get a box full of goodies for free just for giving your honest opinion!? Well this amazing idea does exist and it’s called the Daily Goodie Box! There’s a variety of products in here ranging from snacks, home and health. I’m excited to try all of them but there’s a few that made my mouth drop. :p

feb-daily-goodie-box

*Coffee Blocks*- “a better butter coffee” A squeezable coffee block that has coffee and butter?! As if you guys didn’t know yet, I’m a coffeeholic so when I saw I was receiving this, I was ecstatic.

coffee-blocks

*Nature’s Bakery Raspberry Fig Bar*- I first heard and tried this out at last year’s Cake Expo in Los Angeles. Ever since then, it’s a snack i’ve been getting. When it first came out, I only found it at Winco, but they’ve started selling it at grocery stores.

natures-bakery-rasperry

*Gorilly Goods Coast Sweet Curry Cashew & Fruits* – I don’t know about this one since I’m not a big fan of curry but still interested in trying it out. It’s organic, raw, vegan, non-GMO, Gluten Free, and nutrient dense. By the looks of it, you could order it online on their site or at your local natural grocery store.

gorilla-goods

-may I mention the brand name and logo is amazing. You’ve got an outline of a gorilla hence the name!

*Vermont Smoke & Cure Cracked Pepper Beef & Pork Stick* – I always like trying new beef sticks, it brings back childhood memories of Slim Jims. You can find them at Whole Foods, Target and Super Target.

vermont-beef-stick

*Just Chill Jamaican Citrus (Calm+Focus)* – I’ve seen this a few times at Vons but never tried it. It appears to be a stress relieving and focusing sparkling calming beverage. It claims to support calm and focused mindset, helps reduce stress with Suntheanine. This drink is available at your grocery store, seems like this is an easy product to get your hand on compared to these other snacks.

just-chill

*Aloha Daily Good Greens Chocolate Blend* – I’ve actually tried the original Aloha Daily Good Greens so I’m excited to see the difference between them. It’s a dietary supplement and whole food powder that energizes, provides nutrients and makes you feel great.

aloha-chocolate

*XyliChew Spearmint Gum* – So it’s a gum sweetened with Birch Xylitol which is extracted from US forests. It helps balance your pH in your mouth reducing acid-producing bacteria that erodes tooth enamel. Now I’m excited to try this one out. You can purchase this at your local Sprouts and/or online stores such as Amazon, Vitacost, Herbvive just to name a few.

xyli-chew-gum

*Dream Water Sleep Powder* – Just the name of it, makes you wonder… lol We’ve all had those somewhat sleepless nights where you try everything and just still can’t fall asleep. It’s best to take this right after brushing your teeth and 30 minutes before going to sleep and if sleep is interrupted, then take another one. I’ll have to try this out when I’ve got to wake up for a really early shift. You can get these at your local grocery stores, some drug stores and even online.

dream-water

*Jack n’ Jill Natural Toothpaste* – Wow this toothpaste is even suitable from 6 month old babies and older. It’s all natural and safe in case the kids swallow it. It’s SLS free, no fluoride, no preservatives, no added color. Xylitol is their main ingredient…Hey that was also the main ingredient for the gum! It’s an Australian company so you can only order online.

jack-n-jill-toothpaste

*Nellie’s All-Natural Wow Stick Stain Remover* – We all hate those random stains on your clothes right? Well wet the stained area of the fabric and rub the stick on the stained area. Agitate the stain under water and laundry away. It’s got lemongrass and sweet orange oil work with the cleansing ingredients to fight those odors caught in the stains.

There you have it loves, a preview of my February Daily Goodie Box. I can’t wait till I get another one! Do you have any favorite subscription boxes?! I’d love to hear about it. 🙂

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.

hair spray

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.
