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.

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.

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.

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.

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 :).

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 :).

Blogmas Day Eleven: December Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Eleven! Today I’m going to be going through and unboxing my December Sephora Play Box. This was delayed because of holidays, but I’m very happy to have it now. The theme for this month is Award Worthy Beauty. These are products that are some of the best of the year. The bag itself is plastic with a snap and lock closure on the top. The front is a pretty see through purple with various beauty and lifestyle objects and ‘Play! By Sephora’ in the middle. The back is white and it says ‘Good things come to those who PLAY! #SephoraPlay’ written in purple.

DCSP1

The first product we have is the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea-Drink of H2O Hydrating Boost Moisturizer. This has hyaluronic acid and squalane to plump and hydrate the skin, the Rainforest of the Sea complex to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and an electrolyte balancing complex to promote balanced skin and moisturize. I really like Tarte and I think their Rainforest of the Sea range is great so I’m excited to try this.

DCSP2

Next we have the Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner in Blacquer 42. I’m wearing this now and I have another one of these and I really like them. They’re long wearing, they glide on really smooth and I definitely recommend them if you’re looking for a new eyeliner.

DCSP3

Moving on we have the Grande Cosmetics GrandeDRAMA Intense Thickening Mascara in Black. I’ve been seeing Grande Cosmetics everywhere and hearing a lot about them but until now I haven’t tried any of their products. This mascara has Caster oil and along with the fact that this gives your lashes lift and volume, the Caster oil helps to give a glossy finish. The brush is a nice size and it looks like it would coat all your lashes well.

DCSP4

DCSP8

The next product we have is the Ouai Body Cleanser. This has Jojoba oil to hydrate and soothe the skin, Rose hip oil to nurture and moisturize and Lactobacillus ferment which is a skin balancing probiotic. This smells really good and I’m interested to try it.

DCSP5

The second to last product we have is the Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream. This is a holy grail cream for so many people. It smells incredible, it’s fast absorbing and it makes your skin feel really soft. I can’t even tell you how much I recommend this.

DCSP6

And the last product we have, this months bonus, is the Drybar Blonde Ale Brightening Shampoo and Conditioner. This is a purple shampoo and conditioner so it counteracts brassiness and prevents color degradation along with boosting vibrancy and adding shine to blonde and highlighted hair. I do have blonde hair but I don’t often use purple shampoo and conditioner, so we’ll see how I like it.

DCSP7

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your December Play Boxes 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 :).

Target Beauty Box Men’s Edition Review

Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! Today I have a different type of post for you. The other day I ordered the Target Beauty Box because I had yet to try it and I wanted to compare it to the Walmart Beauty Box and when it arrived I was really surprised to see that not only had they sent me the wrong box, but they sent the men’s version of the box. I did get it sorted and the actual box that I ordered was delivered today and that post will be going up soon. But I was sitting here with this box having no clue what to do with it, so I figured because I’ve never talked about something like this before I may as well. I also┬ámade a group chat with my dad and brothers asking them if they wanted any of the products and what they didn’t want I’m going to donate. The box itself is a dark green and the lid has various shades of green and it looks like mountains/trees and there’s green tissue paper on the inside. Now I don’t know if Target does a box every month for men, but this one is from June.

TBM1

TBM2

So the first product we have is the Head & Shoulders Old Spice Pure Sport Men’s Anti-Dandruff 2-in-1 Shampoo and Conditioner. Head & Shoulders is super popular and I know it works great for a lot of people but I didn’t know until I saw this that it came in an Old Spice scent. Old Spice is one of those scents that generally people really like or really dislike. But if that’s a smell you like then I definitely recommend this.

TBM3

Next up we have some skincare, the Bulldog Moisturizer, Face Wash and Shave Gel. I’ve actually heard of this brand before, it’s a UK company, they use natural ingredients and at least these three, have aloe, camelina and green tea. Which are all really hydrating and moisturizing.

TBM4

Moving on we have the Crest Gum Detoxifying Deep Clean Toothpaste. I use Crest, the 3D White toothpaste, and I think they’re great brand. This toothpaste in particular is supposed to get to those hard to reach areas and remove plaque bacteria so you’re left with healthier gums.

TBM5

The next product we have is the Old Spice Fresher Collection Deep Sea Invisible Solid Deodorant. I know that Old Spice is branching out now with different collections that have different scents. While this does still smell very much like the original scent, there is elements of freshness and it’s not bad at all.

TBM6

The second to last product we have is the Dove Men + Care Clean Comfort Dry Spray Antiperspirant. Dry sprays are definitely becoming popular or more popular now and this one says it goes on instantly dry and works for up to 48 hours. This formula is also non-irritant and it smells really nice.

TBM7

And the last product we have is the Gillette SkinGuard Men’s Razor. This razor is supposed to minimize tug and it cuts the hair at skin level so there’s no ingrown hairs or irritation. And this one says on the box that it’s safe for sensitive skin.

TBM8

TBM9

That about wraps it up for this post, I think that if you’re a guy who’s wanting to try out some new stuff/ you want some stuff to travel with or you’re someone who’s looking for a gift to give to a guy in your life, then this is great. There’s six items in here, it’s $7.00, and you get free shipping and free returns. I’ll leave a link down below.

Until next time, you can never try too many beauty boxes and I hope you all have a great weekend :).
