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.

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.

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,

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.

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.

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.
Have you tried any of L’Oreal’s Infallible Total Cover line? Are you interested in trying it or do you have any questions about the products that I’ve tried? Please feel free to comment below.

L’Oreal AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray Review

IMG_20170309_105222_531

Happy Saturday everyone! I’m really excited to tell you about this new hair product that I’ve been using for the past month; L’Oreal’s AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray!

It has a very pleasant scent; light and sort of fruity.

It’s super easy to use. You just:

  1. Spray throughout towel-dried hair
  2. Scrunch your hair
  3. Then AIR DRY IT

It also says that if you have naturally straight hair to apply the product, then put your hair in a braid to create soft waves. So far I haven’t tried the braiding method because my hair is naturally wavy, but I would love to try that to see how my waves turn out afterwards.

IMG_20170413_170800_948I love that it gives my hair so much volume and it really keeps my waves in place throughout the entire day. Although I have naturally wavy hair, if I don’t apply a product to it in the morning, the waves eventually fall out and my hair ends up pretty straight. I would definitely say that this product does what it says it will do. It helps my hair resist frizz, adds a shine to it and provides a hold for a textured, wavy look. Also, my hair isn’t crunchy or anything.

IMG_20170311_140700_838I don’t always say this about products that I get to test and review but I LOVE this product! It’s definitely going to remain a staple in my hair routine every morning. I used to just let my hair air dry without product in it, but this has definitely given my hair life! I also love the fact that I don’t have to use any heat on my hair due to blow drying. The price point is also very affordable. It’s only $3.97 at my local Target. The only downfall is that the bottle is only 4.2 ounces.

An interesting thing about the beautiful packaging is that it was designed by international artist and fashion collaborator Stina Persson. The design on the bottle is actually water color artwork which I find to be very fitting for this type of product.

Not only does L’Oreal carry this amazing product, but they also have 2 other products in their AIR DRY IT collection.

They have the AIR DRY IT Undone Style Cream which seems to be the cream version of the AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray that I have.

Image result for air dry it ruffled body mousse

There is also the AIR DRY IT Ruffled Body Mousse which seems to be more for people with curly hair, but I would be willing to try this out to see what my hair would look like.

Have you tried any of the products in L’Oreal’s AIR DRY It collection? I would love to hear your thoughts. And as always, if you have any questions about the product that I tried out, please leave them below.

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

Until next time,

Secret Clinical Strength Antiperspirant and Deodorant Review

17439270_1362481633790982_3336772135350697984_n(1)

Happy Thursday everyone! Today I’d like to tell you about the antiperspirant that I’ve been using for the past 2 weeks. It’s the Secret Clinical Strength Antiperspirant and Deodorant. I think it does a great job of keeping me sweat and odor free. If you are someone who deodorant just doesn’t do the job for you, I would recommend trying Secret’s Clinical Strength.

The scent that I have been using is Light & Fresh which I enjoy. I like that the product is a soft solid, not a solid stick. So you can decide how much product you want to dispense out. It’s also a nice compact size so it’s easy to take anywhere like on a trip or whatever.

Have you ladies tried this particular antiperspirant before? Or what about the Secret brand in general? I would love to hear your thoughts and/or questions below.

I received this product free for testing and review purposes and all opinions are my own.

Until next time,
