Makeup/Accessories Subscription Box Review

Mint Mongoose

I was sent this cute jewelry subscription box to review. And I was definitely pleased with how fun the jewelry is. For a $16 monthly subscription, you receive 3 matching pieces of jewelry. I love how the jewelry could be worn alone or together. The sealed envelope and little candy were such a nice touch!

Each jewelry set comes with a postcard that tells a story behind the inspiration to create these pieces. You choose if you want silver, gold, or rose gold. And you can opt out of earrings if you don’t want them.

Want a little more? You can get their Mint Mongoose Black subscription for $23 a month. It comes with 4 pieces of jewelry and 2 accessories each month.

So much fun!

My Little Mascara Club

A subscription for mascara? I was skeptical at first, but, being as I was offered a free box to review, I thought I would give it a try. They sent me their starter set. Which is currently $21 (discounted from $31).

The mascara works well for me – I’m a little picky about my mascara, and this one worked great. What I really love though, is the micellar water and the erase pads. These made getting my mascara off actually possible. Erasing one of my pet peeves about wearing mascara!

You can choose 30, 45, 60, or 90 days frequency, depending on how much you use or like to replace your mascara. After your first order, you’ll receive mascara only for $21 at your subscription frequency. Super convenient!

Ipsy

Ipsy is a monthly makeup and beauty supply subscription box. They have 3 sizes, Glam Bag, Glam Bag Plus, and Glam Bag Ultimate. Bags are $12, $25, and $50 a month, respectively. One interesting thing about this subscription is that in order to subscribe to the larger bags, you have to also subscribe to the bags below it.

Glam Bag contains 5 deluxe size samples. Glam Bag Plus contains 5 full size products. Glam Bag ultimate contains 8 full size products and 4 deluxe size samples.

You do get the option to customize your bag each month. I get both the Glam Bag and the Glam Bag Plus and it’s plenty of cosmetics for the month. If I don’t like something, my girls are usually happy to take it. And if I’m feeling like I have too much, I just pause my subscription for a month or two.

This subscription is just a fun way to treat myself every month. Check it out here!

Fab Fit Fun

I love this box! This is a quarterly subscription box. And at $55 a box is an amazing deal! Full price, my fall box would have cost me almost $500. This box has beauty supplies, but it also has home items and clothing.

I got this awesome blue and white poncho in my summer box and have absolutely loved it! That thing itself was probably worth $55 to me! My fall box is on it’s way and I just can’t wait! It has a super cute throw, kitchen canisters, a curling iron, adorable hair clips, and a few other items.

You do get to customize and because I’m getting so many beauty items in my ipsy box, I tend to pick accessories instead of beauty products when I customize.

Lee Stafford Ceramic Curling Wand for Corkscrew Curls – Review and Giveaway

This is a sponsored post. I received this product free for purposes of my review. All opinions are my own.

My 8yr old Daughter has the straightest, silkiest, hair ever. I’ve tried everything to get good curls. We tried hot rollers, curling irons, a variety of gels and mouses, wet hair, dry hair, overnight foam rollers, overnight rag curls, curling with my straightening iron, etc. Seriously, I’m pretty sure I’ve tried everything I can think of short of getting her a perm.

img_20161216_130518604

Her hair is so long and straight. And it’s so hard to curl!

The Lee Stafford CHoPstick STYLER Ceramic Curling Wand  is a single barrel clipless curling iron. The instructions say to hold the iron vertically and wrap strands of hair around the curling iron and hold there for 5 seconds. Then release and move on to the next strand. Having tried so much in the past, I was excited to try something new and at the same time very doubtful that it would work.

We had washed her hair the day before, so it was completely dry before I started curling. I did not put any product in her hair, because I was curious to see how the curling wand worked on just her hair. I brushed it and made sure there were no tangles before starting.

img_20161216_131633680

It honestly took me 10 minutes to curl her hair. The process was so fast and way easier than a curling iron with a clip. There is a glove included so you don’t burn your hand but it was hard to work with her hair with the glove on, so I didn’t use it. The curling wand has a safety tip on the end so it wasn’t hard to curl her hair without burning my fingers on the wand.

If I do her hair more in layers (top and bottom) next time I can curl up a little more into those roots at the top. Since I was just testing a new curling iron that I honestly didn’t expect to be any different than the others we had used I didn’t bother doing a lot of work on her hair before curling.

Of course, not to be left out, my 5yr old had to get her hair done as well.

img_20161216_132355457

And, they had to get a picture together.

img_20161216_132445444

Aren’t they so cute with their curls! The Lee Stafford CHoPstick STYLER Ceramic Curling Wand was honestly so fast and so easy to use.

Usually my 8yr old’s curls fall out within an hour or two. These lasted all day and she still had some left the next day when we brushed her hair. Not only did this curling wand curl her hair. It also stayed in!

You can purchase this Lee Stafford CHoPstick STYLER Ceramic Curling Wand on Amazon. With free shipping if you have Amazon Prime.

Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum – Review

mpuykohotoe4fnvkocsu_51i0eqvzc2l

I received this product free for purposes of my review. All opinions are my own.

It’s just so much fun that the Valentia brand is named after The Roman Goddess of healing, Valentia. She relied on nature’s gifts to heal the citizens of Umbria. And that is what Valentia does as well. Valentia Skin Care products have been formulated with natural and organic cosmetic ingredients that will repair and protect the skin. Their products are free of toxins and paraben-free.

And they work great for me. I have tried several Valentia products and every one of them has been wonderful. Both gentle on my skin and effective. The perfect combination in facial products.

This time I got to try Valentia’s Night Revive Retinol Serum. A transformative retinol serum that fights wrinkles and provides hydration, for visibly smoother, rejuvenated skin.

This Retinol Serum Will:
– Diminishes wrinkles
– Stimulates collagen
– Improves skin tone
– Manages breakouts
– Conditions skin

Specially selected ingredients work together to achieve optimum results.

KEY INGREDIENTS:

– Retinol (Vitamin A): Works at the cellular level to stop winkles, manage breakouts, and evens out skin discoloration.

– Vitamin C: Guards skin against environmental free-radicals to prevent premature aging.

– Vitamin E: Provides intense hydration to diminish the drying effects of retinol.

– Squalane: Derived for pure olive oil to soften and condition delicate skin.

ex18gfznrrmmvufh794b_51tm8vjaol

USAGE:

As with all Retinol Serums, you don’t want to use it every day. I did this without thinking with this serum and used it 3 days in a row, the 3rd day my skin was just a tad irritated. Nothing terrible, but then I remembered reading on the bottle that I probably only wanted to use this a few times a week or every other day at the most. I dropped back to every 3 days and the results are way better – and non-irritating.

I use it in the evening before applying my nighttime moisturizer. It helps my skin absorb my moisturizer better for softer and more moisturized skin. Just don’t use it every day.

This is another great product from Valentia!

Purchase some for yourself at Amazon or from Valentia.com.

I can apply makeup over this moisturizer without a problem and my face stays moisturized throughout the day.

It has practically no scent, which I just love in my facial moisturizer.

Valentia uses natural ingredients and the Valentia Pure Glow Brightning Moisturizer is working great on my skin. My face is moisturized, soft, clear, and bright. I’m loving this moisturizer.

Ark Skincare: Age Targeted Skincare Products – Review

I received these products free for purposes of my review. All opinions are my own.

ARK Skincare is an award winning British skincare brand loved by Beauty Editors at top magazines like ELLE and Glamour ! ARK Skincare products uniquely treat skin at every age providing a daily skin regimen that protects, defends, and defys. Created in England, ARK Skincare products deliver professional, salon grade results using the most innovative natural formulations.

Since I’m in my 30s I got to try the Age Defend Ark Skincare line. This line is formulated for women in their 30s and 40s and is designed to reduce wrinkles and moisturize my skin.

PiAjZ2nHT2urof7MULDp_Ark Skincare Lineup

ARK AgeDefend Replenishing Moisturiser

This is a twice a day (morning and evening) facial moisturizer. Designed for women in their 30s and 40s. It’s designed to reduce wrinkles and moisturize my skin. Because in my 30’s I want to keep my skin healthy and protected so I can maintain good skin as I age.

My first big beauty product concern is scent. It’s really important to me that I like the scent of whatever beauty product I’m using. This AgeDefend Replenishing Moisturizer smells great. I think it’s the combination of the SheaButter, Kiwi, and Blue Lotus. It’s refreshing and relaxing at the same time. The perfect scent for morning and evening. The scent doesn’t linger long, I really only smell it until I have the lotion rubbed in, which is perfect.

Next up is convenience. This bottle is easy to use and non-messy. Both very important. I just push the top down a little bit and I can easily get the amount of lotion that I want.

Last but not least, effectiveness. I’ve been using this for a week and have not had any breakouts or other problems with this product. My face is moisturized throughout the day without being greasy, and since this is non-greasy my makeup goes on fine over this moisturizer.

This is a great facial moisturizer and it is refreshing and works well on my skin.

ARK SkinPerfector Hydration Injection Masque

This Masque is formulated for all ages. The older you are, the longer you leave it on. You can even leave it on overnight if desired.

Since I’m in my 30s I followed the directions and put the masque on for 10 minutes.

The masque feels like a thick lotion when you put it on, it smells great, just like the AgeDefend Replenishing Moisturizer. It’s a relaxing and refreshing scent. But not that strong because I’m pretty sure that only the person wearing the masque can smell it.

It also goes on clear. With it on, my face just looked a little shiny. Which wasn’t enough to alert my husband to the fact that I was wearing a masque.

I put the masque on, said goodnight to the kids, and sat down in the kitchen to wait until I could wash it off. My husband walked over and I was barely halfway through warning him when he gave me a big kiss on the cheek. And then there was no need to tell him that I had a masque on. The masque apparently does not taste very good.

The masque was easy to wash off with warm water and I applied my ARK Age Defend Replenishing Moisturizer afterwards. My skin was soft and well moisturized.

Both of these products work well, are non-irritating, and smell great! For more information and to find the products designed for your skin check out Ark Skincare’s Website. You can shop by age, skin concern, and product type to find something that’s just right for you.

Aquation – Review


I received 3 full size Aquation products free for purposes of my review. All opinions are my own.

About Aquation:

There are endless elements that affect your skin daily – not all of them in your control. There is a solution. Skincare that protects, restores and fortifies, with moisture you can feel. Clinically proven results you can see. Moisture balance technology you can count on. The perfect Aquation for hydrated + healthy skin.

Powered by Hydro Balance™ Aquation’s advanced dual phase technology delivers hydration and creates an invisible barrier to help prevent moisture loss while encapsulated actives penetrate deeply for long-lasting hydration. 100% of women in clinical trials saw more hydrated skin, even up to 24 hours. 93% experienced instant hydration. 93% found non-irritating.

Aquation consists of a family of hydrating cleansers, creams, and moisturizers. You can learn more about Aquation here.

Summer can be so hard on my skin. I’ve been outside with the kids a LOT this summer, and my skin definitely needs some additional moisture. So, I am quite happy that I got to try out these products.

Aquation Gentle Moisturizing Cleanser:

I set this cleanser in my shower and used it instead of my usual body wash. I am very pleased with the results.

It doesn’t lather very well. I tried it in my loofah and that didn’t work very well. This body was was just a bit too lotiony to lather. So, if you’re looking for lots of bubbles, this isn’t the product for you.

I also tried it using a wash cloth (because I like to scrub with something) and that worked quite well. The pump bottle is easy to use in the shower.

The results are what I’m most pleased with. This body wash did a great job of cleansing without drying out my skin. It also moisturized without leaving my skin feeling greasy or oily.

It’s lightly moisturizing, so you’re still going to want to use the Aquation lotion after your shower if your skin really needs moisture, like mine does. But it is nice to get out of the shower with my skin already one step closer to being well moisturized.

0Ig9tFdKQd2F5GtTncT3_AB16-13_Simple Aquation_052616

Aquation Daily Moisturizing Lotion:

I just love, love, love this lotion! It moisturizes so well without leaving my skin greasy. One of my biggest lotion challenges is that after putting lotion on my hands are clammy because of the lotion. I often end up having to wash my hands just to get the greasy feel off – which kinda defeats the purpose of using the lotion. Not so with this lotion. It absorbs quickly and without leaving my skin oily to the touch.

This is a great all over body lotion but honestly, I’m loving it for my hands because I can moisturize my hands without the being greasy afterwards. I need to get a bottle just for my desk so I have it on hand when I want it.

Aquation Moisturizing Cream:

This is a lot like the Daily Moisturizing Lotion, just a little thicker and a little bit more moisturizing. I’ve been using this product after my shower and on any spots that need extra hydration. Like my shoulders after a fun day in the sun.

I’m not using it every day but just when I need a little extra moisture and it’s working great. It’s also non greasy but still does a great job of hydrating my skin.

This combined with the Daily Lotion and the Moisturizing Cleanser has been really good for my skin.

CZ9xifT1ScunNbPVIetK_AB16-13_Products_052616

After more than a week of using these products my skin is more hydrated and refreshed than I usually manage in the summer.

All of these products are gentle and non-irritating to my skin. They also seem to be unscented so they would be safe for me to use on my kids as well.

Want to try these product for yourself? You can purchase them HERE. Or purchase in-store at WalMart and use this Coupon for additional savings. At $9 each these are a great deal!

I received this beautiful perfume in order to review my purchase experience. Bamboo by Frank Oliver smells awesome! It has a great light, feminine scent. It’s not too strong and I can wear it pretty much anywhere. Really, I’m loving it. And the bottle is so pretty. Currently, it’s sitting out in my living room because it goes so well with my decor.

And purchasing it was so easy! The Fragrance Outlet website was easy to use from start to finish. They have so much to choose from. So many items on sale. They carry full size bottles (like Bamboo) and some travel size sets. I had lots of fun just browsing before I finally decided to check out and order my perfume.

Oh, and they carry these little Airport-Approved refillable Fragrance spray bottles. Hubby’s been traveling a lot lately and I’ve been looking for something like this for him. Of course, I had to add it to my order. I was already getting free shipping, so, why not? That said, they seem to have everything I need in the fragrance department. Now he just needs to take another trip so he can try it out.

There’s several payment options at checkout. Their site, Paypal, or Amazon. So you can pay whichever way is best for you. I just used their website to checkout and it’s what you would expect. Payment information, Address information, Confirm order. The total and what I’m actually purchasing is clear and easy to find – very important for online orders. Checkout was a breeze.

IMG_20160713_204217133

My order arrived a couple of days later. Shipping was way faster than I expected! When it arrived, my perfume was nicely packaged in this cute box. So, if I was giving a gift, I would have been ready to go. This was more like giving myself a gift – which is also fun, btw. You should order yourself some perfume from The Fragrance Outlet and try it out.

They also included 4 little perfume samples – and I LOVE perfume samples!

All in all, I had a great experience. The website is easy to browse. They carry a great selection of products for both men and women. Checkout was easy. Shipping was fast – oh, you get free shipping right now, if your order is over $50. And my order arrived well packaged.

As an added bonus, I’m just loving the engraved bamboo on the back of my Bamboo Eau De Parfum. It’s so pretty!

Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask – Review

The Roman Goddess of healing, Valentia, relied on nature’s gifts to heal the citizens of Umbria. Whether matriarchs seeking to maintain their youthful look or farmers seeking help for sun damaged skin, Valentia used berries, herbs, barks and other natural ingredients.

Just like their namesake, Valentia Skin Care products have been formulated with natural and organic cosmetic ingredients that will repair and protect the skin. Valentia products are Made in the USA, Vegan Friendly, Cruelty Free, and contain Natural and Organic Ingredients.

I received Valentia’s new Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask for free to review.

KEY INGREDIENTS

– Kaolin Clay: Clay minerals draw impurities, improve skin tone, and tighten pores for smoother firmer skin.

– Plant Stem Cells: Naturally decreases the level of pro-aging toxins and works to soother the skin, reduce redness, and improve evenness.

– Spirulina: A botanical stimulant full of vitamins that hydrates the skins surface and contributes to tissue regeneration of the skin.

– CoQ10: Lessens the appearance of wrinkles by reducing free radical damage and stimulating health collagen production.

– Hibiscus & Cranberry Fibers: Both lend their anti-aging properties to firm and reinforce the skin, helping to reduce the creation of new wrinkles.

I love this Clay Mask. It’s so refreshing. My skin feels smooth and refreshed after I use it. And it smells so good!

I put it on and left it on for 15 – 20 minutes. Then washed it off as the instructions specified. The results were great. The clay mask left my skin refreshed, smooth, and clear.

The Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask has a bit of texture to it. The instructions say to rub the mask on and then exfoliate when you rinse it off. This didn’t work really well for me. It was difficult to exfoliate and rinse the mask off with a washcloth at the same time. It worked way better to use a circular motion to rub the mask on and basically exfoliate at the same time. And then just rinse off when the mask set time was over.

My most important test for a good mask is whether or not my face breaks out the next day. I did not have any trouble with my skin the next day, my face was still refreshed and clear.

EVERPRO® GRAY AWAY Temporary Root Concealers Review

DU18fCRETnig6WIsSFeQ_Gray away header

I received a free bottle of GRAY AWAY temporary root concealer spray for purposes of my review. All opinions are my own.

GRAY AWAY temporary root concealer spray:
No mixing, no mess – just spray and go! With a unique, pinpoint applicator, GRAY AWAY temporary root concealer spray delivers targeted coverage for quick and precise results, while the revolutionary, self-adjusting color-matching technology blends seamlessly with hair color for a natural-looking finish. The current product line is made up of 3 colors (Black/Dark Brown, Light Brown, and Lightest Brown/Medium Blonde) that cover 9 shade levels and is offered in an aerosol spray can form.

I received a light brown to test and I couldn’t be more pleased with how well it blends with my hair and conceals gray. I have just enough gray that it’s visible at the roots and I find it a bit too noticeable when I part my hair a certain way.

Convenience – this GRAY AWAY temporary root concealer spray is super easy to use. Just spray it in dry, styled hair and let it dry for 2 minutes.

You can also use it in dry, unstyled hair and style later, but I ended up having to spray more on when I did it this way because I parted my hair in a different spot when I styled it than when I sprayed it.

Effectiveness – the GRAY AWAY temporary root concealer spray stayed in my hair until my next shampoo. It did not brush or rub out during the day, and as you can see in my before and after picture, it did a terrific job of concealing my gray hairs without being at all noticeable.

I tried to rub it out during the day. I’ve had other concealers rub off onto my hands every time I touch my hair and it’s very important to me that I not get brown all over my hands when I touch my hair. This product did not rub off at all.

Before and After

Quality – GRAY AWAY temporary root concealer spray works great, it conceals gray so well and it lasts until my next shampoo and does not brush or rub out throughout the day.

And that pinpoint applicator is so easy to use! I didn’t have any trouble spraying just my roots and only my roots and not the entire bathroom with this applicator. I did throw a towel over my shoulders just in case, but it wasn’t needed.

Price – At $10 a bottle the GRAY AWAY temporary root concealer spray is a great deal. You can purchase it at the Gray Away website. And as a special reader discount you can receive 20% off with the code NOGRAY20 if you order before May 31, 2016.

Recommendation – I would definitely recommend this to a friend. It’s easy to use, works great, and it’s just what I need to easily and quickly conceal my gray roots.

Plant Powered “Non-Prescriptions” for Eczema, Psoriasis, and Scalp Issues

KnBnvvVTSDO1qSjCRe4c_psorzema_haircare

Thanks to derma e, I received all of these product for free for purposes of my review.

If you’re living with eczema or psoriasis, you know how painful, frustrating, and even embarrassing it can be. Recurring patches of dry, red, itchy, flaky, irritated skin can make you want to hide.

You may have turned to prescription treatments or over-the-counter products only to be dissatisfied with the results, or the fact that they contain ingredients like steroids, coal tars or pine tars. The good news is that derma e has formulated something incredibly effective, and so safe that the entire family could use it.

derma e Psorzema® Crème is made with a safe and effective blend of herbal extracts and skin vitamins such as Neem, Burdock, Bearberry, Vitamins A and E to help soften and soothe dry, irritated, scaling skin. It’s natural blend of ingredients help reduce redness and encourage healthy looking skin without the use of steroids, coal tar or pine tar.

My kids have sensitive skin. My oldest is sensitive to scents and dyes so we were already using the free and clear laundry products by the time my little guy came along. He’s sensitive too, but since I’ve already cut most scents and dyes out of the kids skincare sensitivity wasn’t my problem with him.

Dry skin was a problem. Not all over, but little patches of dry skin around his knees, elbows, and legs. And dandruff in his hair. At his 1yr checkup my dr suggested that I use cortizone on him for a week to clear up his dry skin. It did a great job of clearing up his skin problem, but I truly hate using something with a steroid in it every month or so on my child’s skin. It just can’t be good for him. I’m supposed to use an anti dandruff shampoo on him as well but I can’t stand the smell of it and it really stings his eyes if the soap gets in his eyes when I’m rinsing his hair – and, there’s no 100% effective method for keeping all soap out of a wiggly toddler’s face when you’re washing his hair. So, I’m constantly on the lookout for safer products for my child.

I was super excited to try out this new Psorzema Creme. Something to help my child’s skin that doesn’t have steroids in it. Plus it’s natural, gentle, dye and scent free, and affordable. At $20 for a 4oz container on their website, it’s worth it to keep my child’s skin moisturized without steroids.

I got to try out the Scalp Relief Shampoo and Conditioner, the Body Wash, and the Psorzema Creme. I’m so pleased with all of these products! The Scalp Relief shampoo and conditioner really did help my child’s dandruff – and without the nasty smell of the anti-dandruff shampoos. The body wash was gentle and non-irritating to his skin. And best of all, the Psorzema Creme is just wonderful. It hydrated and softened his skin and all those little dry spots, that appear every time the seasons change, were gone after just a couple days of using the Creme. I couldn’t be happier.

I was already starting my annual spring hunt for a product that will keep his skin moisturized all summer. Because, once summer arrives and we’re swimming or in the sprinkler most days, it’s next to impossible to catch up if his skin gets too dry. I’ve found what I was looking for! The Psorzema Creme is so perfect for his skin, and it moisturizes so quickly and effectively, I’m going to be able to easily keep his skin moisturized all summer long. And I’ll definitely be purchasing more of this once my free product runs out.

If you suffer with Eczema or Psoriasis, or just have dry or irritate skin, this is an awesome product that is really working well for my family.

Free sample!
