Ponds Clean Sweep Original Clean Wet Cleansing Towelette 

  Ok ladies, let me start by apologizing for neglecting my blog. 😕 This is my extremely busy season at work and with the holidays and getting ready to travel things have just gotten out of hand. I have so many things to post for you and one of my goals in the New Year is to manage my blog better. On to the review….


Today we are reviewing the Ponds clean sweep original clean, wet cleansing cloth. I received these complimentary from Influenter for testing and review purposes and the opinions are all mine.

One simple question. Do they work? Yes and they do a pretty dang good job. For everyday of my work week I wear a full face of makeup and one wipe removed every bit of makeup that was caked onto my lovely face, lol. I really didn’t notice a smell at all. I have sensitive skin and these didn’t seem to bother it at all. The only thing I didn’t care about is they were too soapy or wet for me. As I cleaned there was a soapy film build up that for many people it is no biggie just not something I care for. 

These towelettes come in the ones I received in Original Clean pictured above and also in Evening Soothe and Luminous Clean. They retail at Target and Walmart for less than $5.00. Influenster also sent a $1.00 off coupon so I did actually repurchase and will be giving them to my daughter.   


Would I recommend?  Yes, for one wipe to remove an entire face of makeup is pretty dang good for me I just wish they weren’t soapy. Until next time 😘

Happy Holidays

L’oreal Pro – Infallible Spray & Set

Hey ladies!

Today we are going to talk about the L’Oreal Paris Pro – Infallible Spray & set makeup extender.

image

First of all let me tell you a secret!  I have only been serious about makeup for almost a year now. I did not know what setting sprays were, this was completely foreign to me. Then one day I received the Target beauty box and it had a full size bottle of this stuff and thought ok I will give it a try, see what all the fuss is about.  It set around on my vanity for quite awhile before I used it and when I decided to try it I quickly wondered where it had been all my life!

This spray kept my makeup flawless all day long and even kept my oiliness under great control.

I ended up going through an entire bottle of this and a trail size. In the days following me running out completely, I noticed that my foundation was melting off and my skin was getting oily and I thought, wow was the spray what kept it from doing that?????? So I promptly took my tail back to target and got another bottle and sure enough the next day my makeup was perfect all day!  Now I don’t have anything to compare this too since this is the first one I have ever used but I do know that at  $13.99 for 3.4 ounces is cheaper than the high end ones you can buy. I say go get you one today.. GO! what are you waiting for?

I will definitely make sure that I do not run out of this again!

I’ll make you look amazing daily Spray by gorge*

Hello Ladies!

Today I will be writing about this amazing leave in conditioning spray that came to me in not only one but two different subscription boxes.

image

First let me fill you in on something. I have horrible hair, I mean the absolute worst hair ever. It comes from many years of coloring or perming and just overall not taking care of it. I am always looking for some miracle spray or cream to help it. So when I got the first bottle I was thrilled to the bone to use it!

This product is amazing! After just using it for the first time I could tell a huge difference, I mean a WOW kind of difference! Ive gone through both bottles already.

Taken directly from their website it claims the following….

1) Protects your hair from heat styling tools
2) De tangles instantly and increases manageability
3) Prevents your ends from splitting
4) Adds amazing shine
5) Repairs damaged hair
6) Seals in the cuticles and protects the color
7) Stops hair breakage
8) Enhances the natural body
9) Seals in moisture
10) Creates smooth, silky hair

Out of those ten things they listed not one of them is untrue!  It even smells amazing, I can’t really describe the smell, it has a slight citrusy blend which is totally ok with me because I am a lover of all things citrusy.

It retails for $24.95 for a 4 ounce spray on their website and I think it is definitely worth every penny. They even have a shampoo and conditioner that I want to try so badly…

If you have badly damaged, dry, frizzy hair like me that is constantly breaking I would definitely give this a try.

e.l.f. And how I use it to clean my face!

image

Good morning loves!
Today’s post is going to be about my face cleaning routine and what I use. I hope you enjoy.

Two months ago I ordered the Skincare daily face cleanser, Skincare exfoliating scrub and the Skincare daily hydration moisturizer from e.l.f.
All three are pictured above so let’s get into it.

image

I use the daily face cleanser each morning and again at bedtime. I love this stuff! I have extremely sensitive skin and this is one of the few cleansers I have found that does not cause me any irritation at all. It does an amazing job at removing all of my makeup and leaves my skin super soft. The best thing about this cleanser is a little goes a long way and even after two months instill have plenty left! This is $7.00 for 3.72 fluid ounces.

image

Next up is the daily hydration moisturizer. Same as above on this one! I use it twice a day and it absorbs into my skin very nicely, not thick or greasy feeling and as above a little goes a long way. Now I did read a lot of reviews on this where people were stating that just after a few uses the pump stopped working. I’ve never had any issues with the pump on this.
This is $8.00 for 2.53 fluid ounces.

image

Last up is the exfoliating scrub. I love exfoliating cleansers and scrubs, however I usually prefer the the scrubbing granules be very fine like sugar or sand. The granules in this scrub are bigger and because I have sensitive skin I opt to only use the scrub once a week. Just like the last two products this stuff is also amazing and a little does what you need!  This is $6.00 for 3.8 fluid ounces.

In my overall opinion e.l.f is very highly underrated a lot! I have several products from this company and they are great and at such affordable prices. For the most part you can find their makeup products at Target, Walmart and CVS. Most anything else can be found on their website and they’ve always had really quick shipping when I’ve ordered.

Wet n Wild megalast liquid lip color.

image

If you follow my instagram then it’s obvious that I love lip products especially liquid to Matte lip products.

Today’s review is on the new Wet n Wild liquid lippies.

I purchased four of these for .99 cents at a local grocery store. The swatches below are Pink Perfection, Pocketful of Roses, Iris I was Rich and Cherry on Top.

image

Now here are my thoughts on these, remember they were only .99 cents. The colors are actually very pretty. It applies very well and for just a minute they are slightly sticky. Once they dry, my lips feel extremely patchy so I’m having the urge to constantly check myself in the mirror. If you lick your lips because the dryness is to much to handle then it flakes of and is over my lips.

However,  I do find that these apply slightly better if you use a lip primer before applying or a gloss top coat after application.

Now please don’t take this the wrong way. I love Wet n Wild products, gosh I’ve been using them for 20 years.  Just these lippies didn’t do it for me.

L’Oréal Infallible Pro-matte Foundation

image

Sorry for the absence lately, I was having some issues posting but I’m hoping it all works from here on out!

In my quest to find a drug store Matte finish foundation I purchased this L’Oréal Infallible Pro-matte Foundation.

I think my search is over! This stuff is great and actually does what it says it does. I have an oily t-zone and usually just a few hours after applying my foundation you can really see the oiliness coming through. Not with this! I usually pair this foundation with the L’Oréal Infallible setting spray and have had zero oiliness and therefore zero complaints from me.

Now in my opinion it is a little pricy for a drugstore foundation but for me it’s completely worth it! I give this foundation 5 out 5 stars! Have you tried it? What were your thoughts?

I love all of you that take the time to read this and I hope to only get better and hopefully post more often!

Until next time,

Juscouture Glam Box

image

Hi friends!
So, about a week ago I received this box from Juscouture as part of an instagram contest/review type of thing. I paid $2.00 to have this shipped to me. Normally on their website it will cost you $20.00 and I’m not sure if that includes shipping or not. If you follow me on Instagram then yiu know I am a fan of subscription/sample boxes and there are so many that I’d love to be able to try. With that being said let me tell you my thoughts on this box.

image

The first item I received was this self laminated goal sheet with their address and a Expo dry erase marker. The goal sheet is actually an awesome concept but mine was in two pieces. The dry erase markers retail at most stores for $6.99 for a 12 pack so not counting the cost of the paper and laminating sheet, I valued this item at 58 cents.

image

The next item was these cute little flower earrings. I will actually use these as I hardly have any earrings. Not sure on the value.

image

This Lipstick is said to be made by Juscouture and retails on their website for $12.00. This one is in a purpley/pink color and will not work for my skin tone at all so it will be passed to a friend.

image

The next item on the list is this eyeshadow brush from the brand pop-arazzi, I have purchased a few of these and after several used the bristles are either falling out or the handle part become disconnected. You can buy this at CVS for $2.99

image

The last item is the one I am most excited about. It is a Pacifica roller ball perfume in the scent Tuscan blood orange. I love this company and actually received a hand lotion in this scent some time back and loved it. This will have a new home in my purse. You cam order this directly from Pacifica for $12.00

Final thoughts:
I valued this box at about $30.00 so only $10.00 more than what they sale it for on their website. Would I purchase this monthly box? I’d have to say no 👎 I receive one monthly box for the same price that is always valued at over $100.00.

With that being said, I do definitely support woman run businesses and the young woman running this company has definitely accomplished a lot but I feel this monthly box needs some work in order for it so be successful.

Thank you for reading! Until next time…
