Limited Edition Halloween Walmart Beauty Box Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Today I have a different unboxing, a Halloween beauty box. I haven’t done a holiday beauty box unboxing before so when I saw this I knew I had to buy it. This box comes from Walmart Beauty and you may or may not know that after the spring Walmart Beauty Box they decided to take off the summer to revamp the box. So I guess this is the intro to that relaunch, although I did get an email a few days ago saying that this week I’m going to charged for the fall box, so the fall boxes are coming. This box in particular cost me $10.00, which is double the price of the normal WBB, and came with a little pamphlet that gave a description of each of the items. I got to choose between two, both had the same base items but one came with an eyeliner and the other with a lipstick. I chose the eyeliner option because I knew I would get more use out of it and I haven’t worn a drugstore eyeliner in years so I wanted to try one out.

The box itself is all white with a white Walmart logo on the top and it’s white on the inside as well. Because this is the Halloween box I was hoping for a pop of orange, black or purple or even some festive tissue paper.

The first item we have in this box is the Splat Hair Chalk in Midnight Blue. This is basically hair dye but not, you take pieces of hair, lightly spray with hair spray, open the color compact, close it around the hair and slide it down your hair. Depending on how dark you want the color to be you can go over the already colored pieces of hair. And to set it just spray more hair spray. I haven’t used anything like this since I was a kid, but it’s a quick and easy way to get color into your hair, the Splat Hair Chalks come in a variety of colors, and once you’re over the color it washes out easily. 

IMG_6481

The next item we have is a Neutrogena Makeup Remover Towelette. This is a single, but you can get this individually wrapped towelettes in a bag of 20. I always keep these on hand, the fact that they’re individually wrapped makes it easy to keep in your handbag, which I do, and I also really like these for taking off swatches because they get all the makeup off. 

IMG_6483

Moving on we have a Revlon ColorStay 16 Hour Eyeshadow quad. This is the product that confused me when I saw it. On the website and in the pamphlet it shows a purple quad, to me it looks like 510, Precocious, but what I actually received was 500, Addictive, a neutral/brown quad. If this is a Halloween box the purple makes perfect sense, but I’m not sure how you would get the same effect with neutrals/browns. I also haven’t worn Revlon eyeshadow since I was in junior high, so I couldn’t tell you now how these shadows are going to perform. Normally I would do some swatches, but I’m going to give this to someone and I want it to be fresh for them. 

IMG_6484

Next up we have the Hard Candy Stroke of Gorgeous Liquid Eyeliner in 1807, Black To Basic. This is a matte eyeliner that says it’s easy to apply, mess free and dries down quickly. I’ve only tried Hard Candy lipsticks and nail polishes, so I’m interested to try this out and see how it performs. This has a nice tip on it and it seems like you could easily do thick or thin liner. I saw that this liner comes in different colors, so if I like it I might look into the other shades. 

IMG_6488

IMG_6489

Moving on we have the Milani Strobelight Liquid Highlighter in 06, 24K Gold. When they say gold, they mean gold. I do like liquid highlighters and when I saw this I was interested because I haven’t tried one from Milani. I think for me this might be a little too gold, but the formula seems nice and when the light hits it it is quite pretty. 

IMG_6491

IMG_6492

IMG_6500

The second to last item we have is the NYX Shout Loud Satin Lipstick in Red Haute. I’ve heard great things about the NYX Satin Lipsticks and based on the swatch I can see why. This is a really pretty shade of red and seems to be nicely pigmented. It claims to deliver up to four hours of hydration in one swipe, which I’ll be looking for when I wear it. All of the Shout Out Loud satins are infused with mango and shea butter and have a heart stamped into them which I think is adorable. 

IMG_6493

IMG_6494

IMG_6495

IMG_6501

And the last item we have is a Sinful Colors nail polish. This is the second thing that I saw that confused me. On the website and in the pamphlet it shows what looks to be a deeper sparkly red polish, maybe Sugar Sugar, and that’s one of the things that drew me in. But the polish I got was 852, Gogo Girl. I do like this polish, in fact I own this polish and it’s on my nails right now. It’s a nice shade of red and like the other Sinful Colors polishes it wears well. 

IMG_6499

IMG_6497

That about wraps it up for this post, overall I think it was alright. I was disappointed by a few things, but I’m really interested to see what the revamped seasonal boxes look like. 

Until next time, enjoy your products and have fun creating Halloween looks :).

Spring 2020 Walmart Beauty Box Review

Hi everyone,

Today I’m back with another unboxing, this time of the Spring 2020 Walmart Beauty Box. I always say that the Walmart Beauty Box is a little off with their timing and this box is no different. I got this on Friday so one day before the official start of summer. The theme for this month is Spring Beauty Sensations. The box itself is white with the Walmart logo in the center and that is made of lipstick swatches in various pinks and reds. Sometimes they will make the inside of the box a different color to more match the season, but this time it’s plain white inside.

IMG_5705

IMG_5706

So the first thing we have is the Suave Curl Defining Cream For Naturally Curly and Coily Hair. This is part of the Suave Professionals for Natural Hair collection. It has natural shea butter and pure coconut oil along with no parabens, dyes and is color safe. This is supposed to add shine, moisture and help bring your curls back to life while enhancing your natural curl pattern.

IMG_5707

The second product we have is the Biore Rose Quartz + Charcoal Daily Purifying Cleanser. This says that the charcoal deep cleans and the rose quartz radiates self love. Biore as far as I know is a well liked drugstore skincare brand and based on the research I did, people seem to really like this cleanser and how it made their skin feel.

IMG_5711

Moving on we have one of two things from the brand Hello. This is a charcoal infused, tapered bristle toothbrush, with bristles made from bamboo, that is natural and bpa free. I know a lot of people like the charcoal toothpastes and such, but personally I’m not the biggest fan. I think this is a cool idea though.

IMG_5709

The second item from Hello is an antiplaque + whitening, fluoride free, natural peppermint with tea tree and coconut oil toothpaste. I’m 50/50 about natural toothpastes and I have a whitening toothpaste that I really like, but I’ll give this one a try and see what I think.

IMG_5712

The second to last product we have is Natural Vitality Calm in Raspberry-Lemon. This is a magnesium supplement that you stir into cold or warm water and drink. It’s supposed to help balance your calcium intake and promote healthy magnesium levels along with helping you feel more relaxed and less stressed. I take my vitamins and things like that but I’m not really into things like this on this level. My mom is though, so I’ll give this to her and see if she likes it.

IMG_5708

And the last product we have is the Salon Perfect Design Nail Set. This is a set of fake nails with a grey marble and gold stripe pattern and an almond shape. In this kit you get 24 nails, a nail file and professional nail glue. I haven’t worn glue on fake nails in many years and I don’t typically pick this shape, but these are pretty cute and something I could have fun with.

IMG_5710

Overall I feel like this is one of the worst Walmart Beauty Boxes I’ve received, it almost feels like they forgot they had to do a box. There’s nothing in here that feels super springy and I feel like there was a few cases where they definitely didn’t look at my profile preferences. Hopefully the summer box will be better. If any of you guys are subscribed to the Walmart Beauty Box, I’m interested to know what you thought of your spring box.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what’s in the summer box :).

May 2020 BoxyCharm Unboxing

Hi everyone,

The other day I received my May BoxyCharm Box and I thought today would be the perfect day to go through it. From what I understand there’s typically supposed to be a little card that says a theme and has prices for all the products, but I didn’t get one in this box so I don’t know what the theme is for this month.

IMG_5545

IMG_5532

So the first product we have is the Daily Concepts Shampoo Bar. This has aloe, which helps to moisturize and balance along with soothing hair and scalp. Nopal Cactus, which helps to protect and nourish hair. And avocado oil to help with natural shine and elasticity. I could smell this through the box and it has that very natural, health food store smell. I’m pretty selective with what I put on my hair, but I’m interested by this.

IMG_5549

IMG_5550

The next product we have is the Ayam BeautyCare Dead Sea Minerals + Vitamin C Serum Makeup Remover Wipes. These are cruelty free with no artificial dyes, no parabens and no phthalates. These say that they remove everything, kiss proof, long lasting, waterproof, etc and leave the skin brightened and moisturized. I don’t use makeup wipes a lot on my face, I typically use them for removing swatches, and that’s the test that I did on these. They did get all the makeup off my arm and they smell really good. This is not an ad or a sponsored post, but Ayam BeautyCare reached out to me on Instagram and gave me a discount code. So if you go to their website and use BOXYFAM you’ll get 30% off your order.

IMG_5552

IMG_5553

Moving on we have the GlamGlow BerryGlow Probiotic Recovery Mask. This mask has a bunch of incredible things in it. Jojoba Oil, hyaluronic acid and shea butter for hydrating and protecting your skin’s moisture barrier. A blend of blueberry, cranberry and goji berry extracts along with vitamins to nurture the skin. And Lactobacillus ferment probiotic to support and help balance your skin’s microbiome. I really like GlamGlow masks and this one smells really good, so I’m excited to try it out.

IMG_5546

IMG_5547

IMG_5548

The second to last product we have is the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow Primer. This primer is infused with mineral rich clay to absorb any excess oil and has a fade proof, crease proof translucent finish that will make your eyeshadow more long wearing and vibrant. I’m always interested in a good eyeshadow primer and I have yet to try out anything from Pretty Vulgar, so I’ll let you guys know what I think.

IMG_5551

And the last product we have is the Studio Makeup Ease-To-Wear Eyeshadow Palette. This is a 9 pan, neutral palette with a mix of mattes and shimmers. This palette is similar to and reminds me of the Urban Decay Naked Reloaded Palette in tone and color story. I wouldn’t call it a dupe, but I think it would be a good alternative. The UD Naked Reloaded is 12 pans and $44.00 and this one is 9 pans and $35.00. I did swatch this on my arm and at first the mattes were a little powdery, but they definitely seem workable and I think the shimmery shades are nicely pigmented. The first fives shadows we have are Sheen, which is a light almost champagney color. Then we have Flaxen, a medium brown shimmer, next to that is Bare, a light almost gray/brown matte. Gilded is next and that is a light shimmery brown and Wicked, a dark chocolatey brown shimmer.

IMG_5556

The next four starts with Lace, a matte really light almost nudey brown. Then we have Dusk which is a very pretty pink that falls between light and medium and has just a bit of shine. Next to that is Blush and that is a light matte mauve and the last shadow is Fate, a very deep matte chocolate brown.

IMG_5557

That about wraps it up for this post, if you got any of the same products in your May BoxyCharm Box let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get in my June BoxyCharm box :).

April 2020 Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be unboxing my April Play Box from Sephora, but this isn’t a regular Play Box, this is actually the last one. Sephora has decided to end Play and they’re going to be rolling out something different coming soon. The theme for this month is Best-For-Last Beauty, which are some favorites products from the Play team. The bag itself is plastic with a snap and lock closure, the front is a see through red with various beauty and lifestyle products and ‘Play! By Sephora’ in the middle. The back is white with ‘Thank you for PLAY!ing’ with two hearts, written in red. I also received a thank you note for being a long time subscriber and it let me know that there is an extra product in the bag and a set of ten beauty and Play themed stickers.

IMG_5430

IMG_5426

So the first product we have is the Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara in Black. This is supposed to have a super creamy formula that gives length and buildable volume for up to 24 hours. I’m wearing this mascara today and so far I really like it. The formula is actually really creamy and it went on without any clumping and there’s no transfer. I quite like the brush, it’s nice and big with the plasticy bristles and it has a spikey bit on the end that makes sure you can get all your lashes.

IMG_5431

IMG_5432

The next product we have is the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. This is a holy grail product for me and my absolute go to for setting sprays. It’s light, dries down quickly and once it has dried then your makeup is locked in. The box says for up to 16 hours and it delivers.

IMG_5433

Moving on we have the Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb. This is one of my favorite eye creams, I pretty much swear by it. It’s super lightweight and sinks in quickly along with helping with the elasticity of the skin. It has tiger grass which soothes and comfrey leaf which detoxifies. This is a product I always recommend.

IMG_5434

Next we have the Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion. This is a lightweight mushroom infused lotion that is supposed to calm your skin and help to reduce any redness you may have. I don’t really have any redness, but I’m going to give this to someone I know who already uses and loves it.

IMG_5435

The second to last regular product we have is the Shiseido Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector Broad Spectrum Face Sunscreen SPF 42. This is a super light sunscreen that can also acts as a primer along with absorbing any oil you may have and giving a matte finish. I don’t always use an SPF under my makeup, I typically do a setting spray that is an SPF as well but that can get a little tacky, so I’m interested to try this out.

IMG_5436

And what would be the last product, this month’s bonus, is the Amika Soulfood Nourishing Mask. This is one of my all time favorite hair masks and I’m actually running low on the one I have so this is perfect timing. You put this all the way through your hair, leave for two to five minutes and rinse. It leaves your hair feeling really soft and healthy and I definitely recommend giving it a try if you haven’t.

IMG_5437

The extra product that I received as a thank you is the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dance Fever. I’m wearing this today and it’s a really nice medium brown shade. It went on smooth and it’s lasting well through the eating and drinking I’m doing. I have a couple of this is a range of different colors and I think they’re great.

IMG_5438

IMG_5439

IMG_5440

That about wraps it up for this post, if you got any of the same products in your April Play Box let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get. I’d also love to know what your favorite product is that you’ve received from Sephora Play in general.

Until next time, enjoy your products and thank you Sephora Play for all the great products :).

March 2020 Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

The other day I received my March Play Box from Sephora and I thought that today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme for this month is Wild Beauty. These are must have products that will be great and work for you no matter what you’re doing. The bag itself is plastic with a snap and lock closure on top. The front is a see through minty green that is perfect for spring, with various beauty and lifestyle products and ‘Play! By Sephora’ in the middle. The back is white with ‘Excitement level 100’ written in the same minty green.

IMG_5306

The first product we have is the Drybar Detox Clear Invisible Dry Shampoo. I’ve tried Drybar dry shampoos before and I do like them. I think they work well and they always smell good. Of course the worst thing about some dry shampoos is they can leave a residue behind so I really like the sound of a clear and invisible dry shampoo.

IMG_5318

Next we have something that I’m very familiar with, the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Hydrating Primer. I use this primer all the time, it hydrates the skin and gives you a great base to work with.

IMG_5319

Moving on we have the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. This is a moisturizer that you can wear on it’s own, under your foundation or you can even use as a highlighter. I have one of these and I really like it. It smells great and it gives a nice subtle glow under foundation. I definitely recommend giving this a try if you haven’t.

IMG_5320

The next product we have is the Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Moisturizer with Ceramides. This is a rich moisturizer with a luxe texture that is supposed to leave you feeling super hydrated. I haven’t tried a Drunk Elephant moisturizer but sounds like it’s right up my alley and I’m excited to try it out.

IMG_5322

The second to last product we have is the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Intense Black. I’ve used this liner, it was forever ago, but I really liked it. It has a precise tip so you have a lot of maneuverability, glides on smooth and once it dries it’s not going anywhere. Definitely an eyeliner I recommend.

IMG_5323

And the last product, this month’s bonus, is the Versace Bright Crystal perfume. I can’t even tell you how good this smells. It’s got the perfect mix of floral and fruity but it’s also got some freshness. If you haven’t smelled this and you get a chance, I recommend it. This is a great scent for spring and summer.

IMG_5324

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your March Play Box let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).

Winter 2020 Walmart Beauty Box Review

Hi everyone,

Today I’m back with another review and this time it’s of the Winter 2020 Walmart Beauty Box. It is a little hard to call this a winter box when I received it on March 12th, but I’m happy that it came nonetheless. The theme for this box is Winter Wonders. The box itself is white with a Walmart logo in the center that is made of lipstick swatches in various reds and pinks and the inside of the box is blue.

IMG_5233

IMG_5232

The first product we have is the Herbal Essences bio:renew Birch Bark Extract shampoo and conditioner. These have 0% sulfates, parabens, gluten and colorants and are supposed to have gentle color protection. I haven’t used Herbal Essences in a very long time, but I’m going to give this to a friend that I know loves it.

IMG_5235

Next we have the Colgate Optic White Renewal toothpaste. This says it’s high impact white, removes 10 years of yellow stains and is 3% hydrogen peroxide. It’s also sugar free, enamel safe, gluten free and vegan. I have a little kit I carry in my handbag that has little things like this in it so that’s exactly where this is going to go.

IMG_5236

IMG_5237

Moving on we have the Curel Dry Skin Therapy Hydra Skin Moisturizer with Ceramide Complex. This says it immediately absorbs and delivers long lasting non greasy moisture. I use the Curel Wet Skin Moisturizer and I really like that. I don’t have particularly dry skin, but extra moisture is always a plus so I’ll let you guys know what I think of this.

IMG_5238

The second to last product we have is the NYX Makeup Crew 2 piece set. You get two lipsticks in this set. One is a soft matte lip cream and the other is a soft matte metallic lip cream and they’re both in the shade California. I have a couple of the NYX soft matte lip creams and I like them. They have a whipped texture, they’re light on the lips and they have a pretty long wear time. I am mildly concerned to wear the metallic just because the swatch, while gorgeous, was really metallic. But we’ll see.

IMG_5239

IMG_5240

IMG_5241

And the last product we have is the Color Club Nail Lacquer in 1198, It’s Complicated. Color Club is a brand I know of, but haven’t tried anything from. This is a really pretty magenta shade. I do have this on my nails now and it’s as pretty on as it is in the bottle. I put this on my nails on Friday, it’s now Monday and it’s holding up well. This went on great and it seems to have a nice formula.

IMG_5242

IMG_5243

IMG_5254

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your Winter Box let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next season :).

February 2020 Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Over the weekend I received my February Sephora Play Box and I thought today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme for this month is Beauty Soul Mates, which means these are products that you will fall for. The bag itself is plastic with a snap and lock closure. The front is a see through tealy blue with various beauty and lifestyle products and Play! By Sephora in the middle. The back is white with ‘How to PLAY! 1. Open 2. Heart eyes emoji 3. Repeat #SephoraPlay’ written in that same tealy blue.

IMG_5146

The first product we have is the Tarte SEA Water Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in 15N Fair-Light-Neutral. This is a weightless, buildable foundation that is supposed to reduce the look of wrinkles and fine lines. I’ve never used a Tarte foundation before but I’m intrigued by this and I’ll let you guys know what I think.

IMG_5152

Next we have the Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Moisturizer. This has Lotus Root extract and Maca Root extract which are supposed to help with uneven texture, dryness and dullness all while leaving your skin with a nice glow. I have used this before and it’s not my absolute favorite moisturizer but it is really good and I would recommend it.

IMG_5153

Moving on we have the Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream. This is an ultra moisturizing cream that is supposed to keep your skin moisturized and feeling like it’s on cloud nine for up to 72 hours. I really like Peter Thomas Roth as a brand, they make some amazing skincare, so I’m excited to try this.

IMG_5154

The next product we have is the KVD Vegan Beauty Lock-It Setting Powder. This is one of my favorite setting powders and has been for a while. It’s weightless, takes away unwanted shine and it’s not bad for baking either.

IMG_5155

IMG_5156

The second to last product we have is the Yves Saint Laurent Tatouage Couture Liquid Matte Lip Stain in 5 Rosewood Gang. I haven’t worn any of the YSL lip products but they’re supposed to be lightweight, long wearing and very pigmented. I really like the color of this one when I swatched it, it’s a really pretty deep pinky mauve and I’ll definitely let you guys know what I think.

IMG_5157

IMG_5148

And the last product, this month’s bonus, is the Drybar Blonde Ale Brightening Shampoo and Conditioner. This is supposed to keep your blonde looking blonde and your hair healthy. I got one of these in a Play Box a few months ago and I haven’t gotten around to trying it yet but they have great reviews.

IMG_5158

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your February Play Box let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).

January Favorites

Hi everyone,

Today, as it’s the end of the month, I thought it would be the perfect time to do my January favorites. This month has been really busy, which I love, but at the same time feels like it’s been 79 years long. But within all of that I’ve collected a good group of favorites, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from this month’s Sephora Play Box. I will link that down below if you haven’t read it. My first Play favorite is the Kat Von D Beauty, who have rebranded themselves as KVD Vegan Beauty, Tattoo Liner in Trooper. I talk about this liner all the time, I love it. It’s really precise, it lasts all day and it doesn’t smudge. It’s just so good.

IMG_4969

My other Play favorite is the Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask. I’ve been using this for a little while and my hair loves it. This helps to prevent future damage, restores moisture and creates vibrancy. I take pretty good care of my hair already, but I love a good hair mask and I can tell the difference when I use this one.

IMG_4965

Moving on, my next beauty favorite is the Maybelline Master Chrome Highlighter in Molten Rose Gold. I am always on the lookout for a great highlighter and this one has been raved about for a while now, so I thought I would try it. I’m so happy I did because it’s fantastic. It’s the perfect rose gold shade, it’s buildable and the shine you get when the light hits it is so nice. They do make this in three other colors that I do want to look at, but if you’re looking for a drugstore highlighter I highly recommend this one.

IMG_5041

My second to last beauty favorite is the makeup I did on my birthday. I wanted to do something really fun and a little extra because if you can’t be extra on your birthday then when can you. So I went with a gold sparkly eye and a bold lip and I love the way it turned out.

And my last beauty favorite is the e.l.f. Cosmetics Haute Chocolate Eyes Sugar palette. I did a post all about this palette, which I’ll link below, and since then I’ve been playing around with it and creating some fun looks. It’s a solid palette.

Moving on, I have a food favorite and it’s cinnamon rolls. Every year on my birthday, for my actual birthday my mom makes me cinnamon rolls and they are some of the best cinnamon rolls I’ve had. I don’t know her recipe, I need to get it from her, but they’re so well balanced and it’s everything you want in a cinnamon roll without it being too sweet.

My second to last favorite is the Rolex 24. The Rolex 24 is the first race of the IMSA season, it’s always exciting and this year was no different. There were a lot of moves with teams, drivers and cars made in the off season so I was really interested to see how it was going to play out. I can honestly say it looks like it’s going to be an exciting season and I of course want to congratulate the Rolex 24 winners.

And my last favorite is a music favorite, the blues. This is a really broad thing to say and I listen to the blues a lot anyway, but this month has been filled with a lot of rain and crap weather that it’s been very fitting. My Joe Bonamassa playlist has gotten extra use this month.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites let me know and if not I’d love to know what your favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great January :).

January 2020 Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be unboxing my January Sephora Play Box. The theme this month is Stress-Free Beauty. That means that these are products that you can count on in your routine to work every time. The bag itself is plastic with a snap and lock closure at the top. The front is a see through tealy/blue with various beauty and lifestyle products and ‘Play! By Sephora’ in the middle. The back is white with ‘How to PLAY! 1. Open 2. Heart eyes emoji 3. Repeat #SephoraPlay’ written in that same tealy/blue.

The first product we have is the Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask. This is supposed to smooth, hydrate and help protect your hair. You put this on after you shampoo and you lather from root to tip and leave in for five to ten minutes. I have this in my shower right now and I love it. It smells great and my hair feels extra soft and smooth after I use it. If your looking for a hair mask I definitely recommend this one.

Next we have the GlamGlow SUPERMUD Activated Charcoal Treatment Mask. You put a thin layer of this on your skin, you can also use this as a spot treatment, leave on until it hardens and wash off with warm water. Because this has activated charcoal it’s supposed to be really purifying and great for the skin. I really like charcoal masks, so I’m excited to try this.

Moving on we have the Shiseido WASO Clear Mega Hydrating Cream. This is a clear gel moisturizer with peony root extract and whole carrot cells that is supposed to give you intense hydration and help to brighten the skin. I tried this a few months ago and there’s something in it that my skin does not like because it made me break out. But I know a lot of people do like this.

The next product we have is the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper. This is one of my absolute favorite eyeliners. It’s really precise, you get a great line and it’s great if you want a hassle free cat eye.

IMG_4969

The second to last product we have is the Lancome Cils Booster XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base. This is a mascara primer, it has a microfiber brush so it gets each lash and vitamin E which helps to nurture and condition your lashes. I personally don’t use mascara primers, I don’t really like them, but this one has great reviews and people seem to really like it.

And the last product we have, this month’s bonus, is the Philosophy Amazing Grace Eau de Toilette. I’m gonna be honest, I have a cold and I’m stuffed up so I have no idea what this smells like. But it says that it’s floral with bergamot and lily of the valley. I don’t always go for a floral scent in perfume because they can be heavy but I’ll let you guys know what I think of this once I can fully smell.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your January Play Box let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).

December Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month I thought this would be the perfect time to do my December favorites. This month has been really busy, but I did manage to try new products and find some things I love. With that being said, let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my December Sephora Play Box and I’ll link that below. The first favorite is the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea-Drink H2O Hydrating Boost Moisturizer. I’ve been using this since I got it and so far I’m really liking it. It has hyaluronic acid and squalane to plump and hydrate, Rainforest of the Sea complex to help reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles and an electrolyte balancing complex to moisturize and promote balanced skin. I think the Rainforest of the Sea collection is fantastic, so I recommend it.

DCSP2

My next beauty favorite is the Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner in Blacquer 42. I have a couple of these and I think they’re so good. They glide on really smooth, they’re long wearing and they don’t smudge.

DCSP3

My second to last beauty favorite is the Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream. This is one of the best creams out there, in my opinion, it’s a holy grail cream for a lot of people. It smells incredible, it’s fast absorbing and it makes my skin super soft. This is a product I will always recommend.

DCSP6

And my last beauty favorite is from the Fab Fit Fun Starter Box, I’ll link that post down below. This is the Moroccan Gold Series Leave-In Mask. You spray this in your hair when it’s damp and comb through. It nourishes and conditions, helps to detangle and locks in moisture. I’ve been using this since I got it and I can see a little difference in my hair. Plus is smells really good.

FFF8

My next favorite is a TV show and it’s Brian Johnson’s A Life On The Road on AXS. The basis of the show is AC/DC’s Brian Johnson sits down with his musician friends and they talk about the person’s career and a little bit about their life. I love shows like this and I’ve been really enjoying it.

And my last favorite is Paul Rodgers The Royal Sessions album. I discovered this album while watching an episode of A Life On The Road and I’m glad I did. Paul Rodgers has always been one of my favorites, other musicians call him The Voice and say that he’s probably never sung a wrong note and honestly they’re not wrong. He’s been doing this for so long and his voice is so solid. The Royal Sessions album has a mix of blues, soul and rhythm and blues songs. I think it’s really fun and it’s produced so well. I definitely recommend giving it a listen if you haven’t.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites this month let me know and if not I’d love to know what your December favorites were.

Until next time, I want to thank each and every one of you for reading, following, liking, commenting, and sharing, it means a lot and here’s to a great 2020 :).
