May 2016 Birchbox and Review

IMG_20160517_124438 (1).jpg

Hello Beauties,

It’s that Awesome! time of the month.  My Birchbox has arrived, this month I was pretty excited about my products.  I did not choose the curated box this month and let Birchbox just pick my products.  So here they are:

COOLA Daydream SPF 30 Mineral Makeup Primer- Full size, $42.oo

I do like COOLA products and have tried them before, so when I get it in my box I’m very pleased since they are very pricey.  The only down thing about this product was that there was not lots of product in the little deluxe sample.  When I hold it up to the light I was able to see a tiny bit in there.  The primer works great and it’s super silky and soft.  Plus it has SPF.

Matrix Oil Wonders Volume Rose Plumping Mousse- Full size, $20.00

This product smells like roses but not too over powering and it’s suppose to help fine hair with volume.  I have used it a few times and I really like it.  I would purchase this hair product since it is a higher end hair product.

BONUS! Shampoo and Conditioner

These are foil packets but I don’t mind because you  get to review them for 10 points each.  I was able to get two uses out of these. They smell like roses and left a light scent on my hair. Full sizes, $18.00

MDSolarSciences Mineral Moisture Defense SPF 50 for Body- Full size, $39.00

This sample has no scent to it and very lightweight.  It has a very high SPF but it’s very expensive. I will use this product but it’s something I will not purchase.

MODELCO Lip Lacquer-Morocco-Full size Trio, $16.00

This is a nude lip gloss and it’s very nice but I really don’t need another lip gloss so I will pass this one to my sister.

RealChemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel for Body-Full size, $34.00

Now this product I LOVED!!! I didn’t expect this would work since I already use a sugar scrub every other week and I like it.  Then I tried this and it was AMAZING I was able to use it on my arms and shoulders.  It comes in a gel form with very fine grains.  I used it in the shower and it left my skin super soft.  I’m debating if this will be my next purchase with my points.


April Birchbox

Hello Beauties,

 It’s that time again, My Birchbox has arrived!  This month Birchbox did a collaboration with Rifle Paper Co.  I also choose the curated box this month since the samples choices to me were not very interesting.

Marcelle 3-in-1 Micellar Solution- Full size, $21

This water solution does 3 things removes makeup, cleanses skin, and soothes irritation.  I’m really excited to try this product since I have nothing like this. Marcelle is also a very good brand and it’s not the first time Birchbox has features this brand.

Dr. Jart+ Liftra Contour Cream- Full size, $60

  Dr. Jart is also another brand  I like very much.  This cream firms, lifts, and                               plumps skin.  Also this is a very pricey brand so I get excited when this brands                         is in a box.

 Laura Geller New York Baked Blush-n-Brighten- Full size $28

  This blush-highlighter duo is  very beautiful and gives you a natural-looking                             flush.   I like to combine this product with another blush just lightly.

  Parlor by Jeff Chastain Volumizing gave Lifting Spray- Full size,$24 

  I received this product last month so I’m not upset to get another one since I gave                  mine away to a friend who wanted to try it.  I will say this smells nice and it gives                    you volume and lift.

 Tocca Crema da Mano- Giuliettta-Full size, $20

  I like how soft and silky this lotion is and the scent is very light.  It is loaded with                   natural botanical, this green apple and pink tulip lotion absorbs in a flush.

Let me know what you got in you Birchbox. Also here is a code for 20% off your next order at Rifle paper Co S4Y-75U.

💛SkinFood Everyday Facial Yogurt Mask Review💛


Hello Beauties 👋
I received this face mask in my October Mask Maven. It was the first mask I tried out of the 9 I received and I totally loves this one.  I had seen on Youtube that it should be used at night because it was super moisturizing. 


This mask was a little bit thicker than a sheet mask so I believe it was more like a cotton mask.  This mask was very hydration, moisturizing and left my skin feeling soft for days.  If you have dry skin this mask is perfect to give you that boost of moisture. 
I will definitely purchase this mask.
I did find it on Ebay for $3.99 each

theBalm Cosmetics Meet Matt(e) Hughes Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick
Love theBalm brand but for some reason I was not a big fan of this color just didn’t look good on me.  Now this is my first time trying liquid lipstick and I like the staying power.

It has a fresh cucumber scent and feels cool on the skin. It left my skin fresh and glowing.
