Hempz Moisturizer (My Favorite!)

18 Dec

I wanted to make this post because I felt like this product deserved a shout out! This winter my skin has been cracking from how dry i am and it seems like every lotion I’ve tried has failed me. Until now. While walking through Ulta one day I came across a brand called Hempz. They are cruelty free and 100% vegan. First thing I did was put some on my hands. It smells delightful and doesn’t feel too greasy. after walking through the store for an hour my hands still felt like i just applied it! I have never had a moisturizer be so moisturizing! Since they were sold out of their yummy triple moisture formula I got a mini bottle of their pomegranate scent for $7.00. All their products have 100% natural hemp seed oil in them which i believe has been doing wonders for my skin!

HempzI Strongly recommend you try some of this awesome stuff next time you visit ulta. If you have tried any cruelty free brands I would love to hear about them if you know of any. Just comment your favorite cruelty free brand below 🙂

My Top 3 LUSH products for Fall/Winter!

4 Oct

I wanted to show you guys my favorite cold month products because sometimes its so hard to find things that look good on dry skin! I have been starting to get flaking skin on my forehead so bad that i cant even wear foundation right now! Instead of foundation i have been using the Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer on my trouble spots (Love this stuff!). This post is to show you what I feel is best for when your skin gets dry for if anyone else needs some opinions!

First thing on my list is the Imperialis face moisturizer. I was recommended this by the lady who worked there because she said it cured her dry skin (she had baby skin!). I got a sample and tried it for a week. I was blown away by how well it helped, I’m actually buying the full size tomorrow! my skin is so soft and the dry patch is almost gone! You can purchase is at LUSH for $24.95

Lush2Second on my list Is the Lip Service Lip Balm. This stuff is fantastic!! I also get really dry lips when it gets cold out, go figure! Lip Service is a beeswax based lip repairing balm with all natural ingredients. I bought this at LUSH for $7.25 and use it three times a day. my lips are SO SOFT! I use this alone, or under lipsticks. They also say that you can use this lip balm on other dry parts such as your Elbows or Cuticles. I HIGHLY recommend this product!

LUSH3The last LUSH product on my list is their OATIFIX Face Mask for DRY skin. Their main ingredient is Organic Bananas. Oats are VERY soothing for dry, flaky skin. I got this for $6.95. Its not necessarily my favorite thing for moisturizing, but at the same time it doesnt dry you out. But it is a great, gentle way to calm and exfoliate that dead skin!

Lush4 You can get all these products in store or at http://www.lush.com. I hope I gave you guys some new options to try for dry skin! these products really are great, I have been loving lush for so long! All their products are cruelty free too which is an added Bonus 🙂 I am not sponsored/ being paid to make this post, I just love their products so much! Let me know what your favorite LUSH product is! Have a wonderful day 🙂

Halloween Look #1

19 Sep

Hey Guys! I LOVE Halloween time! I always have to try as many looks as possible before I choose one. So I thought I would share with you some of my Halloween looks through out the next few weeks to show you what I like, and to give you some easy ideas!halloween#1Every year I have to be something scary because we go to a “haunted” garage walk-through and volunteer. This look is VERY basic and anyone can achieve it with a little eyeliner and a little lip liner! For the outline of each black marking on my face I used some liquid eyeliner in BLACK (Jesse’s Girl liquid eyeliner). To fill in the lined areas I used the Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel eyeliner in BLACK, and set it with any matte black shadow. For the teeth, I outlined little jagged marks around my lips and then filled them in with NYX eye pencil in WHITE. For the scars on my chest I simply used a dark lipstick (MAC’s Russian Red) and smudged it until it looked realistic enough. Lastly, add a dark reddish eyeshadow to random parts of your face and neck for a bruised effect.  Have Fun! I would love to hear what your favorite Halloween beauty item is in the comments below!

Smashbox Pop of Pink Review!

5 Aug

So I turned 17 the other day, Yay! And I wanted to review one of the things I got with some birthday money! I haven’t tried much Smashbox other than some lipgloss and mascara, but I saw this little value kit and had to get it! It’s super cute with four pink colored items including a lipstick, lipgloss, mascara, and blush! So here’s what came in it and what I thought.Smashbox1Here’s a picture of the bright pink makeup that came in the box.

Smashbox2On The top is the Reflection High Shine lipgloss in Pop Of Pink and the bottom is their Be Legendary Lipstick in Posy Pink. I love both these products a ton! The lipstick goes on smooth and gives a really nice pigmentation! I just might prefer it over M.A.C.! The lipgloss also has great color, the only problem I have with it is that it may be a little too sticky for me. Other than that it lasts a good while!

Smashbox3This is their blush in Pop Of Pink. I put on a stronger amount on the left to show you how much color it really has! The color on the right is a sheerer coat, something a little more practical for me. It is a VERY pretty blush! It blends well onto the skin, gives a nice glow, and stays put!

Smashbox4This mascara is their Full Exposure Mascara in Jet Black, AKA my new favorite mascara! As you can see in the picture the brush is HUGE and has a good sized bottle too. I always have trouble finding a mascara that will lengthen, de-clump, AND stay all day. I have only worn this mascara today, but it didn’t fail me! If you are thinking about getting a kit by smash box I recommend this! This is their POP Of PINK box, but they also have a bronze one too. At ULTA I got this kit on sale for $29.00 when it was $39.00 and it also says it’s an $87 value! So happy I got it 🙂

Butter London Mani in Slapper

23 Jul

This is one of my favorite polishes! this brand in general has such great polish! Its smooth, pigmented, and has a smaller brush ( I like this better that thicker ones) The color i’m wearing is named Slapper. It is the perfect teal. I got mine at Ulta for $15.00, a little pricey but worth it! I also recommend their nail strengtheners and cuticle treatments! I would love to hear what your favorite butter london colors are!

The fourth item I got is a small organic facial moisturizing sunscreen by the brand COOLA. I have incrediply fair skin, and turn into a lobster after 10 minutes in the sun, I know. I love this for three reasons. 1 because its organic. 2 because its unscented. and 3 because its Cruelty free! Nothing bad about it!

These last two items I got are the same items everyone else got. The lip crayon is the Pouty Pop Crayon by POP. I got the color Coral Crush, which is great for my skintone! It goes on very well and has a great color! The sample is the BHCosmetics California Collection sampler of eyeshadow. Love it! The three colors you get (Gold, Brown, and Purple) ave very universal colors and go on smoothly! They blend well too :)

Tea Tree Wonders

Tea Tree Wonders

This is another one of those things you need to have because it just does good! It is an essential oil usually grown in Australia with great qualities for health and cleaning. I got this one at Trader Joe’s for around $14.00, I know it’s a lot but it goes a long way! I was recommended this stuff from my piercer a few months ago after having a bump on the back of one of my piercings, and it healed it right up! It is best known for its antiseptic qualities and its ability to fix simple problems such as eczema, acne, colds, dandruff and sinus infections just to name a few. It is my favorite thing to have around and is a great natural item to keep in your cabinet! Just remember, if you do purchase it, that you should dilute it with water before using it on sensitive skin and/ or around the house!
