Screenshot_20170821-163549.jpg

Happy Monday everyone! Hope everyone had a great weekend! I wanted to hop on here real quick and give you a review of the Olay Ultra Moisture with Shea Butter Body Wash.

I received a sample of this body wash a while back and I really enjoyed using it! It has a nice scent that isn’t perfumey or strong. I mostly used it to shave my legs instead of using it as a body wash and it worked great! It also left my skin feeling soft and smelling good.

This blog post was written as an entry into a contest by Influenster.

Have you guys tried any of the Olay body washes? I’d love to hear what you think! Please feel free to comment below.

Until next time,

Simply Summer’s Eve Coconut Water Collection Review

20170716_152213

Happy Thursday everyone! I’m excited to tell you about these products that I’ve been using recently. I received them free from Crowdtap for testing and review purposes and all opinions are my own. It’s the Simply Summer’s Eve Coconut Water collection which includes: a package of 24 Cleansing Cloths, a box of 14 individually wrapped Cleansing Cloths, and Gentle Foaming Wash. Keep reading if you want to hear what I thought of them. 🙂

20170720_190632I really enjoyed using the Simply Summer’s Eve Coconut Water Cleansing Cloths. You can use them at home (like I did) or easily take them with you traveling wherever you go. The coconut scent smells delicious, especially for summertime. I felt that the cloths did a great job of making me feel cleansed and fresh and I had no irritation whatsoever. The packaging is also very sturdy which is great because it keeps the cloths moist.

20170720_190604These Simply Summer’s Eve Coconut Water Cleansing Cloths are basically the same as the ones in the package above, they are just wrapped individually so you can shove a couple in your purse, backpack, luggage, etc. Very convenient to have and the packaging is sturdy.

20170720_190533Last but certainly not least is the Summer’s Eve Coconut Water Gentle Foaming Wash. This stuff is great because you don’t need to lather up any soap because it does all that for you! You just squeeze one pump of foam into your hand and you’re good to go.  I thought that this also did a great job of making me feel clean and helping me stay fresh. I didn’t have any irritation with this cleanser.

Overall I definitely enjoyed using these products and will continue using the ones I have. Have you tried any products from the Simply Summer’s Eve line or are you interested in trying them? Please feel free to comment below.

Summer’s Eve also has a Simply Summer’s Eve Collection in Mandarin Blossom.

Until next time,

Jafra Royal Jelly Line Review

IMG_20170530_211025_508Happy Independence Day! This past month I have had the pleasure of having the Jafra Royal Jelly line as my daily skincare routine. I received these products free for testing and review purposes from Crowdtap. I’ve been using these products day and night and can’t wait to tell you about my experience with them. First things first, I think Jafra’s Royal Jelly line packaging is very classy! White and gold are perfect together.

20170704_113633The Jafra Royal Jelly Gentle Cleansing Milk did a nice job of cleansing my skin. Just like it says it was very gentle on my skin. I didn’t feel any irritation after using it. The squeeze tube made it really easy to use. The only downfall is the scent. It has a hint of  a chlorine scent to it. I usually get over the scent after I’ve used it, so it isn’t too strong.

20170704_113804The Jafra Royal Jelly Vitamin Infusions Spot Serum was quite enjoyable to use. It sank into my skin nicely and felt very light on my skin. Also, the scent is pretty nice.

20170704_113704The Jafra Royal Jelly Global Longevity Creme was my favorite product out of the entire line. The texture is nice and thick and it’s very moisturizing. I really enjoyed applying this to my face and neck. It smells quite similar to the Spot Serum.

20170704_114047When I apply the Jafra Royal Jelly Global Longevity Eye Creme to my eyes, it makes them feel nice and hydrated. It doesn’t have too much of a scent.

20170704_113724Last but not least, I felt that the Jafra Royal Jelly Solar Protection Fluid Broad Spectrum SPF 50 did a great job of protecting my skin from the sun. It has a pleasant scent and somewhat of a sunscreen scent which I didn’t mind. It has a thin texture so it went onto my skin and blended really easily. It didn’t leave any white residue like sunscreens tend to do.

PhotoGrid_1498764322871I really enjoyed using the Royal Jelly Line. This was my first time using products from this brand and they did not disappoint. I’m definitely going to continue using these products and I look forward to seeing how my skin looks as I use the products.

Have any of you guys used the Royal Jelly Line or any other Jafra products? If not, what brands do you use to keep your skin looking young and healthy?

Until next time,

Kleenex Multicare Large Tissue Review

IMG_20170529_144717_853Happy Thursday everyone! Today I want to tell you guys about the Kleenex Multicare large tissues. I was fortunate to receive these for free to test out from Chatterbox.

20170529_144840My boyfriend and I love having BBQ’s at our home and so I thought what better way to test these Kleenex Multicare tissues out. I decided to use them to clean my patio table. I thought they did a pretty good job, but I would say I’d prefer to use these more so for wiping my hands when I’m eating a snack or when cold/flu/allergy season hits because one regular size Kleenex sometimes just doesn’t do the job.

I definitely considering purchasing these in the future along with the regular size Kleenex tissues that I usually buy because sometimes you just need a bigger tissue and you don’t want to have to use multiple tissues to get the job done. I picked these up at my local Target. Man I love Target! Who doesn’t, right?

Have you guys tried the Kleenex Multiuse large tissues before or are you interested in trying them? Please feel free to comment below.

Super Easy Curly Hair Hack

PhotoGrid_1498420140032.jpgHappy Sunday everyone! I hope you all are enjoying your weekend so far. I got some pool time in which was super fun and much needed in this 100°+ weather we’ve been having. I just wanted to pop in quickly today and show you my super easy curly hair hack.

I’m not sure if this will work for everyone. It might depend on your hair type but I have fine hair, just so you guys know.

So here’s all I did to get these voluminous curls. Yesterday afternoon right after getting out of the shower, I put my hair up in a bun using one of these cloth hair ties. I love these things! They don’t pull on your hair and they don’t break like some of the elastic ones do.

20170625_125857.jpgThen I took my hair down 24 hours later and wah lah! It’s super easy to do if you forget your curling iron somewhere or if you just want a heat-free alternative to curling your hair.

Do any of you ladies already use this method? Or do you have any questions about it? Please feel free to comment below.

Until next time,

Rachael

Snapple Straight Up Tea Review

IMG_20170529_153408_506Happy Thursday everyone! It’s been a hot one out here in Northern California, especially with the Excessive Heat Warning that’s been going on. Hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far and staying cool. Speaking of staying cool, today’s review is about Snapple Straight Up Tea that I received for free to test out thanks to Smiley360.

IMG_20170529_151735_879My boyfriend and I decided to have a Memorial Day BBQ and the Snapple Straight Up Teas went perfectly with it! It was nice and hot that day and the teas were very refreshing. I must say that I liked the Sorta Sweet one better just because I can do without as much sugar, but they both tasted delicious. My boyfriend tried both of them as well and he liked both of them also.

IMG_20170522_190454_446I picked up my Snapple Straight Up Teas from my local Target store.

20170618_100844I’m also looking forward to trying their other flavors: Unsweetened, Rooibos and Honey Green.

Have you tried any of the Snapple Straight Up Teas yet? If so, what did you think? Or are you interested in trying them? Please feel free to comment below.

Until next time,

L’Oreal Infallible Total Cover Color Correcting Kit, Foundation & Concealing and Contour Kit Review

20170603_120126.jpgHappy Sunday ladies! I was lucky to have the opportunity to test out these L’Oreal Infallible  Total Cover products for free thanks to BzzAgent. Continue reading if you want to find out what I thought of these products and to see some photos of the results.

20170603_132841The L’Oreal Infallible Total Cover Color Correcting Kit worked really well. It was also really easy to use as I just tapped my fingertip on whichever color I wanted to use and then I could build up the product if I needed to do so. The green color corrector which is meant to neutralize red tones did a great job of doing that for my skin. I practically applied it over my entire face because my face tends to have a lot of redness to it and it completely got rid of the redness. I put the peach color corrector under my eyes and it did a pretty good job of reducing my dark circles. I applied the yellow color corrector on top of the peach color corrector to further neutralize my dark circles because I didn’t really have anywhere else to put the yellow. I applied the purple color corrector to my cheekbones to help brighten them. You could definitely see how the purple color corrector drew attention to my cheekbones. I will undoubtedly continue using this kit and will probably be purchasing this in the future because I like so many things about it.

20170603_132818
The L’Oreal Infallible Total Cover Foundation does an awesome job at evening my skin tone and providing excellent coverage all over my face. It felt really lightweight and I loved the fluffy yet thicker texture of the foundation because that made it easy to go onto my skin and gave me the confidence that it would do its job. I felt that it did a good job of lasting throughout the entire day. I also like that it comes in a tube and the tube has a fine tip on it so that you don’t accidentally squeeze out too much foundation. I’m definitely going to continue using this product and consider purchasing this in the future.
20170603_132732
The Infallible Total Cover Concealing and Contour Kit was pretty fun to use. I like the fact that it was in cream form instead of powder (which is what I usually use) because to me it was easier to blend. I used the lighter shades to highlight down the bridge of my nose and my forehead. I used the darker contouring shade on my cheekbones, forehead, and chin. I will definitely continue using this contour kit and I’m excited to see what other ways I can try to use it.
20170603_132701
Here is a photo of me after my entire makeup routine is complete. As you can see, I’m definitely a fan of these products and I will continue using them.
