They have a variety of products to choose from such as: men and women’s fragrances, as well as bath, hair, and body products. They also have quite a unique product in their inventory; hair perfume!

Now I’d like to tell you about the perfume featured in this post. It’s called Hello and as soon as I took off the cap and took my first whiff, this became my new favorite scent and let me tell you why.

It has notes of Meyer Lemon, White Grapefruit, Satsuma Mandarin, Summer Forsythia, Pink Plumeria, Wild Verbena, Tahitian Vanilla, and Sensual Musk.  

Harvey Prince describes the style of this perfume as welcoming, loving and refreshing. I couldn’t agree more!

Hello Toothpaste Review

IMG_20171119_121448_654Happy Sunday everyone! I want to share with you guys about my experience with Hello toothpaste! I received these products free to test and review from Hello Friends.

I had the opportunity to try out Hello Toothpaste in Extra Whitening Pure Mint and Flouride Free Natural Sweet Mint. First of all, I love that these toothpastes are free from dyes, artificial sweeteners and flavors, microbeads, triclosan, preservatives, gluten and peroxide. I can feel safe using these knowing that they don’t have harmful chemicals in them. Also, isn’t the packaging the cutest? I love the colors as well as the the fact that they are standup tubes. So easy to use and get product out of the tube! They both have a nice flavor too, not strong like your typical toothpastes. I felt that they both did a good job of cleaning my teeth and making my breath fresh. I would recommend these toothpastes to anyone who wants a natural dental product in their life.

Have you guys tried this brand or are you interested in trying it out? Would love to hear from you!

Until next time,

Luxe VoxBox Review!!!

20171110_134914.pngHappy Friday everyone! I hope everyone has had a great week and that you have something fun or relaxing planned for this weekend. I’m grateful to be enjoying a 4 day weekend this weekend. So, let’s get right into it! I received the Luxe VoxBox from Influenster for free to test and review. This by far has been the best box I have ever received from Influenster! It came with the following products: Aquis Lisse Luxe Hair Drying Towel, Amika Nourishing Mask, Amika Un.Done Texture Spray, Dr. Brandt Needles No More NO MORE BAGGAGE Eye De-Puffing Gel and Grande Lips Hydrating Lip Plumper in Clear Gloss.

Aquis Lisse Luxe Hair Drying Towel

First of all, I could tell that this towel was different than other hair towels that I’ve used before because it has a different texture to it. You could almost describe it as a springy texture. It doesn’t feel like regular old cotton because it isn’t. It’s easy to use! I just wrapped my hair up in it as soon as I got out of the shower, got ready, put my makeup on, then I took my hair down from the towel. I noticed right away that my hair had more volume to it after I took the towel off and it just looked healthier. It also dried my hair significantly faster than it normally would if I was just using a regular towel. I’m definitely a fan of this product and I highly recommend it! This towel is part of my daily routine from here on out now.

Amika Nourishing Mask & Un.Done Texture Spray

I had my own mini spa day at home with Amika! Their Nourishing Masks works amazingly well! First of all, the texture is nice and thick which usually tells me that it’s good quality. I confirmed it’s quality as soon as I applied it to my hair! The mask absorbed into my hair nicely and easily detangled it. It smells awesome too! After I got out of the shower and let my hair air dry, I could feel and see how soft it was. This is definitely a mask that I’m going to purchase in the future!
I then applied my Un.Done Texture Spray to my roots and all over the rest of my hair. It gave my hair more body, bounce and volume. Unlike other styling sprays I’ve used before, this did not make my hair feel hard. You wouldn’t even know I was wearing anything in my hair! This also smells really nice! It doesn’t have a chemical or strong smell to it. It’s very light. It’s meant to absorb dirt and oil as well as style your hair. I love that it’s basically a dry shampoo and a styling spray all in one without the white powder residue.

Overall I’m super pleased with these products and how my hair turned out. I can definitely say that I’m an Amika fan now! ♡♡♡♡

Dr. Brandt Needles No More NO MORE BAGGAGE Eye De-puffing Gel

In my photo collage you will see a photo of me before I applied the product, after one application, and after I applied the second layer. I could definitely feel a difference after applying one layer as well as two layers of this product! My skin feels tighter under my eye area which is how I know it’s working. I think if I were to try this in the morning you guys will see more of a difference in the de-puffing since that tends to be the time of day when we are the most puffiest of course. But even so I can tell a difference after applying this in the afternoon. The packaging is really professional and sleek. The tip of the tube is really small which is helpful because you don’t need very much of this product. PRO TIP: make sure you follow their instructions and wait for the product to dry before applying another layer. After applying it under my eye area, I could feel a slight sting but nothing painful. You could tell it was definitely doing something to my under-eye area. And just as a side note, I was born with these dark circles unfortunately so they aren’t from lack of sleep or anything. But hey, Dr. Brandt has their work cut out for them with my dark circles. Lol! And I know this tube is going to last me for quite some time because you don’t need much product at all for one use. This is a product that I will continue to use and consider purchasing in the future. I also love the texture! It’s got a nice thickness to it, but it’s not too thick. It goes on very easy and smoothly.

GrandeLIPS Hydrating Lip Plumper

Holy moly this product  is amazing! In the above photo collage you’ll see the Before photo, After 5 minutes photo, and After 30 Days photo. Look at the difference that it makes! My lips are super plumped and hydrated and I love the feeling of this product on my lips. It’s really easy to use too! There’s a little clicker on the bottom of the applicator and you click it until enough product comes out that you need. Then you apply it to your lips and wallah! I definitely got compliments on how moisturized and full my lips looked. I will definitely continue using this product and consider purchasing it in the future as well. The only downfall is that it has a scent to it that I’m not a fan of but after I apply it to my lips I don’t smell it anymore.

Thank you again Influenster for the opportunity to try out these Luxe products! They have definitely made a positive impact on my beauty routine and I’m happy that I get the opportunity to share these wonderful reviews with you guys.

Have you guys tried any of these products or do you have any questions about them? I’d love to hear from you. Feel free to comment down below.

Until next time,

Origins GinZing VoxBox Review

20170822_170529Happy Tuesday everyone! I’m really excited to tell you about these skincare products that I received complimentary from Influenster. I was so pumped when I found out that I was getting the Origins GinZing VoxBox! I’ve used Origins products in the past and I’ve also heard a lot of great things about this brand. So lets get on into it and I’ll tell you about my experience with these wonderful products!

20170822_164539The Origins GinZing Refreshing Scrub Cleanser is so awesome! It smells delicious! It has a nice citrus scent which definitely awakened my senses every morning while I would be washing my face. I also love the grains that smooth out and refresh my skin. This cleanser basically gives my skin a fresh, clean slate every day to start over with. I used this in the evening also. It was very gentle on my skin and it did a great job of making my skin feel clean and fresh.

20170822_164630The Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer was also very pleasant to use every morning and night. It has a light citrus scent to it. A little goes a long way which is fantastic because that means this will definitely last me a long time and you definitely get your money’s worth with this moisturizer. It  did a great job of hydrating my skin and the jar made it really easy to just tap my fingertip into the product and apply it to my face and neck.

20170822_164645Last but certainly not least is the Origins GinZing Eye Cream. This doesn’t have a citrus scent to it like the other two products, but the scent is not bad. It has a nice consistency and it’s a pearly pink color. I enjoyed applying this under my eyes at nighttime (personal preference to use it in the nighttime only since my eyeliner tends to run sometimes during the day) and my under-eyes definitely felt hydrated after using this.

IMG_20170810_152129_208
Overall I LOVE this Origins GinZing skincare set! I definitely plan to continue using these products and I’m considering adding more Origins products to my beauty regimen in the future.

I received these products free for testing and review purposes from Influenster and all opinions are my own.
