PRODUCT TESTING: 

SkinFix Hand Repair Cream ($17.99)

IMG_2732

I received this product (deluxe sample) in my Fall 2015 BeautyCon BFF Box. I really enjoyed this hand cream. It is nothing special, but sometimes it is nice to have a really great basic hand cream. This hand cream is perfect for those with sensitive skin because it has no fragrance. It really moisturized my hands and wasn’t greasy. I really liked this hand cream.

I received this product in my Limited Edition Holiday Glossybox. This palette is simply stuning. I love the shape and all the gorgeous colors. This is a very natural palette and can be worn everyday. The shades are pigmented and blend like a dream. I really enjoyed playing around with them. The shadows also lasted all day on my eyes. I was really impressed with this palette. I can’t wait to create even more looks with it!

Green Smoothie Face Masque and Scrub by Jacq’s Organics ($17.50)

IMG_2822IMG_3320

I received this product in my November 2015 LaRitzy Box. I love face masks, especially ones you get to mix yourself. I always feel like a scientist when I use these. I loved how this mask smelled. It is very herbal, but in a good way. It also felt amazing on my skin. I really felt like it was detoxifying my skin. It is a mask and scrub in one. You mix it with water and then leave on the face for about 20 minutes. After that, it works like a scrub because you scrub it off with water. My skin felt so radiant after. I could also feel a slight tingling which was nice. I am very impressed with this face mask/scrub.

Burt’s Bees Lip Gloss ($9)

IMG_3543

I received this product in my November 2015 Beauty Joy Box. I love the shade it of this gloss. It looks really nice on the lips and it is very moisturizing. It isn’t too sticky and feels really comfortable on the lips. I love the barely there look. However, I can’t stand the scent or taste of this gloss. It smells like plastic and it is just awful. I really wish it smelled better because I love everything else about this gloss. I won’t use it again because I just can’t stand the scent.

Medusa’s Makeup Eye Primer ($8)

IMG_3224

I received this product in my November 2015 Beauty Joy Box. This is a very interesting product. It has absolutely no color and is very thick. However, when applied to eyes it doesn’t feel like anything. It has a slight tackiness, but barely noticeable. It did help my eye shadow last longer which I was impressed with. It is a very hard product to explain. You really need to try it to understand. I don’t know how it works because it feels like nothing, but it does. I was shocked by this product and I actually really like it.

Beauty Joy Mineral Eye Shadow ($10)

IMG_3226IMG_3443

I received this product in my November 2015 Beauty Joy Box. It is a black pigment shadow. I was not a huge fan of this shadow. It is very black, but it is very messy. It also didn’t stay on the eyes very well. You, most definitely, have to use a primer with this eye shadow. It was just so hard to work with and I had the hardest time achieving the look I wanted. Overall, not a fan of this eye shadow.

Kings and Queens Jasmine Shower Gel Deluxe Sample ($12.99)

IMG_3222

I received this product in my November 2015 Beauty Joy Box. I really liked this shower gel. I enjoy bar soaps more, but this was a great shower gel. It smells very nice (strong, but nice). I was really surprised at how moisturizing it was. It doesn’t look like a moisturizing body wash, but it really is. It left my skin feeling soft and clean. Overall, I liked this shower gel.

Palladio Shadow & Liner Herbal Crayon in Silver Bells ($8.89)

IMG_3443

I received this product in my November 2015 TomBox. This is such a stunning silver shade. It really shows up on the eyes and makes them pop. It is very pigmented and lasts all day. This is the perfect holiday silver and looks amazing paired with a smokey eye. I just really love it and will be using it a lot this holiday season. I am just so impressed with it.

Lord & Berry Maxi Matte Crayon Lipstick 

IMG_3427

I received this product in my November 2015 TomBox. I really love this lip color. It is stunning and wears a very long time. This lipstick is extremely drying (because it is extremely matte) so I would definitely recommend wearing a lip balm underneath. I was really impressed with this lipstick and will be wearing this a ton.

Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Nightly Brightening Pads ($45)

IMG_3338

I received this product (samples) in my November 2015 Adore Box. I think these eye pads were old because they were dried up. They didn’t really do much to my skin. I did feel a tingling sensation, but didn’t notice any difference in my skin. I do believe that is because these were really dry. I am pretty sure they are suppose to be moist. However, I would love to try these. I really think I would like them if they weren’t old.

Sparta Soap ($3.99)

IMG_3337

I received this product (sample) in my November 2015 Adore Box. This soap smells really nice…just like melons. I also love how pretty it looks. However, this soap is really drying. It also caused my skin to break out. I think my sensitive skin didn’t agree with the ingredients. It was such a bummer because I really love the scent and look of this soap.

Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain in Forever Peach ($25)

IMG_3383

I received this product (sample) in my December 2015 Featured Birchbox. I had previously received a sample of this and tried it on my lips. I didn’t like it at all. However, I used it on my cheeks in my holiday look and loved it. I now reach for it all the time as my cheek color. I can’t get enough of it. It really warms up the cheeks and adds a gorgeous pinky peach shade. I love it so much and it lasts all day. I would definitely recommend trying this product on the cheeks…not the lips. I also love how easy it is to blend.

Coastal Scents Eye Shadow Duo in GlamourEYES ($12)

IMG_3374

I received this product (sample) in my December 2015 Featured Birchbox. I was so impressed with this eye shadow duo. The shades are stunning and extremely pigmented. You barely need any of this product. The shadows wear all day and look so gorgeous on the eyes. I am definitely going to have to buy the FULL SIZED palette. Coastal Scents has really stepped up their game. I can’t get enough of these shadows.

Derma E Microdermabrasion Scrub ($32.50)

IMG_3363IMG_3423

I received this product (sample) in my December 2015 Featured Birchbox. This scrub is made from Dead Sea Salts. I loved this scrub. It is very abrasive so go easy with it. However, it really did remove my dead skin. My skin felt so soft after using this scrub. It also had a radiance to it. I am definitely going to continue using this scrub because I really love it.

Juara Coconut Illipe Hand and Nail Balm ($20)

IMG_3362

I received this product (sample) in my December 2015 Featured Birchbox. This is also a pretty good hand cream. It wasn’t my favorite hand cream ever, but it works. It is moisturizing and wasn’t greasy. It also didn’t break out my hands which was nice. It kept my hands hydrated; however, the scent is just okay. It wasn’t my favorite scent because I am not a huge fan of coconut scents. Overall, this is a pretty good hand cream.
