Review: crystal essence natural deodorant towelette







I received one of these towelettes in my november gogogirlfriend box. These are perfect to take with you to the gym or to use anytime you need to freshen up. They are made with natural mineral salts plus  natural pomegranate extract and essential oils.


I do think these are great to pop in your purse and take with you to the gym or if your in school and you need to freshen up or even at work and you need to fresh up. Just go to the bathroom and use these cute little towelettes. I also didnt have any problems with these at all  and it lasted all day.

julip maven nails

I tried one of the colors i received in the julip maven  that i showed in an earlier video.







The shade is emilie.


I will say for someone that doesnt really like the color green except for certain things like on money, grass, plants, I love this shade. It very pretty and i love the way the product goes on my nails and the shine that it had before i put my top coat on,. The picture above is with the top coat on. 

I also later was playing around with some colors because this is a perfect color for the holiday seasons that we are in. I took a red color and a silver color  and wanted to do something easy that is christmasy.




So what do you think??

I purchased this at my local walgreens for only $5. It is perfect for a stocking stuffer. It the Profusion eyeshadow palette  It does come in other colors but i love pink.

These colors are very pigmented and have shimmer in it. but i love these colors.


These are the colors swatched on my hand in the  order they appear in the palette.

No bad for only $5, and perfect for the holiday season and perfect for stocking stuffers.

Scrub and tanner

The  other night i wanted to use a self tanner from bare escentuals..So first i started in the shower using a product that is new to me be i love their lip stuff. Its the fresh brown sugar body polish.


 

I love the smell of this and i love the way this leaves my skin. 
And then i used the tanner.
This is my left leg before using the tanner. 



This is my same left leg after the tanner. 

I used kabuki brush to apply this and i really do love this. I love the way it applys and the way it continues to develop over time. Also when it fades, it fades gradually. 

I purchased the fresh body polish from sephora. Sorry i dont remember the price. It came in a set. And as far as the tanner i purchased it online on gvc.

Review : dolce & gabbana








I got this in my november gogogirlfriend box Its the  dolce and gabbana fragrance light blue,
What they say: An astonishing  fragrance that evokes the spirit of Italy, the infinite sky , the deep- sea  and lighthearted joy.  delicate, floral, and fruity.
My thoughts: I love this scent very light. I will be repurchasing this

Book review

 This is a perfect book to pick up from eva scrivo on beauty. It covers everything from hair to skincare to makeup,

Review: blinc mascara


 




I received this in my october birchbox. It comes in a tube as shown in the picture and comes with intructions inside the tube.

What they say: This tubing mascara wont smear smudge or run -plus it gives lashes a sassy, extra glossy look.
The cost:  For .21 oz its $24.



                                                Before without anything on my lashes


                                                      This is with blinc on


My thoughts: I was scared to use this at first because the instructions say  that the only way to remove this is from warm water and a little pressure. I tried this and i really love the way this looks. I also discovered that when i remove it that i used a makeup wipe and it came off pretty easy,  It does leave this bits of mascara because  when this coats your lashes it creates a tube around your lashes. I would  repurchase this.

Review: hydroxatone 90 second wrinkle reducer







I received  this in the new beauty test tube.

What they claim:  fast working firming and filling formulas that smooth lines across the entire face, instantly diminishing the appearance of crow's feet and laugh lines for younger looking skin. For a full size its $79.95
To use this product:You  apply to your face or just around your eyes, Micronized firming ingredients instantly reduce the look of lines, crows feet and under eye bags. Just dab it on and you will feel the tighting in 90 seconds and it lasts for hours.
My thoughts: I hate this product. It does work in 90 seconds but I felt that it made any  lines around my eyes more pronounced. I tried this for a week and i was never more glad to have my regular eye creams back and my eyes  were thankful as well. And on another note way too overpriced.

Review atelier cologne

The claims:  vanille insensee cologne absolue  warm notes of vanilla, oak wood, and amber anchor this autumn ready perfume.  For 30 ml/$60 and for 200 ml/ $170

What i think: i love the smell of this but the price is high.

review: orofluido beauty elixir

What they say:  we dont know what we love more- this hair treatment's trio of nourishing essential oil( argan, linseed, cyperus) or its intoxicating vanilla amber scent. For 3.4 fl oz its $29.99

My thougths: As i have put into an earlier video. I have long hair and i do take care of my hair. So i was excited to try this. I feel a little let down. I think that it is overpriced and  products can be purchased for way less that do pretty much the same thing. As for the scent, I really didnt notice a scent.

review: Befine lip serum

This came in the october birchbox.
What they say:  A lip healing wonder, befines vitamin rich lip serum heals and smoothes cracked or dry lips
For the belips duo. Its $25.



My thoughts:  I dont like this product. I find that it drys out  my lips and is very over priced for $25. There are plenty of cheaper products that work way better and can be picked up at your local walmart.
