Screenshot_20180730-132605

Happy Monday everyone! I’ve got a subscription box review coming your way today thanks to Good Being!

@joingoodbeing is a healthy beauty & natural wellness monthly subscription box service. Their boxes are valued between $45 to $65 and you only pay $24.95 per month. You can choose either a Beauty or Lifestyle box.

What’s awesome about their boxes is that you get to choose 1-2 items per month and each box comes with 4-5 expertly curated personalized items.

When you first set up your account, you make your profile to let them know what your preferences are for products. That’s how they are able to personalize your box so well for you.

Included in my July box are:
🌱@laurenbbeauty Nail Couture Beverly Hills Restorative Cuticle Oil
🌱@nkdskn_tan Gradual Glow Daily Tan Moisturizer
🌱@deliaorganics Skin Detox Rehab Mask
🌱@giaminerals Setting Veil in Spice
🌱@BuddhaBowlFoods Himalayan Pink Organic Popcorn

I’m really excited about each of these products! Mainly because I know that their ingredients are good for me and all of these brands are new to me and I love being introduced to new brands and new products!

So far my favorite beauty goody from this box is the @laurenbbeauty Reparative Cuticle Oil. The packaging is beautiful! I love the fact that it has an applicator tip so that you can apply the oil to your cuticle very precisely. And the oil smells very nice! It’s also made with amazing ingredients.

What stood out most to me about @joingoodbeing and made me want to try them out is the fact that they take the time to make sure that you’re getting healthy and quality products in each of your boxes.

If you’d like to try one of these amazing boxes yourself and/or check out @joingoodbeing some more, go to http://www.joingoodbeing.com

Dashing Diva MagicPress Press-On Gel Nail Review

PhotoGrid_1530654775056.jpg

Happy Saturday everyone! I wanted to hop on here and share an amazing product with you.

I’m loving my Dashing Diva MagicPress Press-On Gel Nails! Read on to see what I think of them. 💅

I received two Dashing Diva MagicPress Press-On Gel Nail designs and one Toe design.

First of all, the designs are super cute! And the set comes with a bunch of nails in different sizes which makes the process quite easy.
Also, they were really easy to apply! Here’s all you have to do:

Prep
💅 Clean your nails with polish remover
💅Wash your hands with soap
💅Push back your cuticles with the provided cuticle stick
💅Use the enclosed prep pad to thoroughly clean nails of any oil or residue
💅Make sure your nails are completely dry

Application
💅Select the correct size nail for each finger and set aside in order
💅Peel off clear backing film to expose adhesive
💅Align nail with cuticle, making sure to place the clear tab side at cuticle
💅Press down firmly starting in the middle, then press down on each side, left to right

PRO TIP: 💅Apply both thumbs last for best control during application.

And there you have it!

I thought that these nails were really easy to apply and they lined up well with my nail bed. I’ve tried other brands in the past that didn’t line up with my nail bed and looked weird and felt odd.
I myself enjoy having super short nails just because I feel that it’s easier for me to do things. But I do like having long nails aka press ons, for special occasions or when I want my nails to look super nice. So I do enjoy putting on nails every once in awhile.

Another great thing about these nails is the fact that you don’t have to spend a lot of money and make an appointment at a salon where they use a bunch of chemicals, etc. This takes hardly no time and you have gorgeous nails done right in your own home at your own convenience. I will definitely be checking out more of their nail designs!

Have you guys ever tried @dashingdiva_usa nails before?

Sevendrops Katafray Aqua Soothing Gel Cream Review

IMG_20170713_194558_518

I had the opportunity to test out Sevendrops Katafray Aqua Soothing Gel Cream. On the box that it came in it says it’s formulated from Rawganic by using Fiji Islands water and that it’s for normal to combination skin. I really liked the packaging because it comes with a nice pump to easily get the product out of. I also like the look and feel of the packaging. They used really nice colors that go together well and the bottle is very smooth. It also has a nice cap so that you can keep the container sanitary in between uses. The texture of the product is really nice. I really enjoyed smoothing the product over my face and neck and the cream did a good job of absorbing easily into my face and neck. The only thing that I didn’t like was the scent but you couldn’t smell anything after you applied the product to your face which is a good thing. I felt that it did a good job of hydrating and moisturizing my face and I definitely plan to continue using this. It seems like it’s the perfect product for summertime since they state that it’s water-based and most of us tend to be out in the sun more often in the summertime. This is meant for day and night use. In the photo above you’ll see that I did a swatch of it on my hand so that you could see what the texture looks like. The texture is nice and thick. I applied it to my hand and then 20 minutes later it hadn’t even budged or slid down my hand at all. It stayed in the same spot.

Glam Glow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment Review

IMG_20170720_200426_938

I must say that the Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment from @glamglowis a pretty awesome mask! I love how it turns a light gray shade while you’re wearing it and you can definitely feel the tingle while the mask is on. I was worried that it would be difficult to wash off but it came off of my face really easily. My face felt really smooth after I rinsed off the mask. I would definitely consider using this mask again.

Roloxin Lift Mask Review

IMG_20170727_152244_425

I tested out the Roloxin Lift mask. To use it you just massage the package for 20 seconds to activate it, apply a thin layer to your face and neck, wait 7 to 10 minutes, then rinse it off.  I could feel something happening on my face while I was wearing it. It didn’t hurt but it was like a tingling sensation. It rinsed off really easily and I could feel a difference in my skin after I removed the mask. It just felt like my skin had a clean slate to start all over with. This sample came with two of the exact same mask so I will be using that one also in the future.

Carol’s Daughter Rhassoul Clay Shampoo and Conditioner Review

IMG_20170727_165014_323

I tried out @carolsdaughter Rhassoul Clay Shampoo and Conditioner. They both smelled really nice! The shampoo lathered up well and did a great job of cleaning my hair. The conditioner had a different texture than what I’m used to (not silky like most conditioners), but that’s not a bad thing. It was easy to use and made my hair soft and smell really good. I received these products free for testing and review purposes from @pinchme and all opinions are my own.

Vella Ultra Hydro Sun Essence Aqua Mineral Solution Review

IMG_20170730_181735_974

I had the opportunity to try out the Vella Ultra Hydro Sun Essence Aqua Mineral Solution. The packaging is nice and sleek looking. At first I thought the lid was metal but it just looks metal. The entire packaging is plastic. I don’t necessarily like the way that you have to squeeze the contents out, I’d prefer a pump. The product had more of an oily consistency as opposed to a creamy consistency. That’s not a bad thing in my opinion. It seemed to absorb into my skin really quickly and easily and my skin felt nice and moisturized. It has kind of a men’s cologne sort of scent to it to me and I didn’t like that. The scent did go away after I applied the product to my face though. I may end up giving this product to my boyfriend just because of the scent. I like the fact that it has SPF 50 in it, that’s really convenient. The directions weren’t in English. I tried to find them online but gave up after a short amount of time. I went on the product website but it wouldn’t translate what I needed it to into English. I know that the product is for your face so I just applied it to my face and neck like I would have done with a normal moisturizer. Wasn’t too big of a deal. If it would have been a different kind of product that required more instruction then I think it would have been a bigger deal to be able to find the directions. Overall this is not a bad product.
