Review: BoxyCharm January 2018

Hi Guys,
I know my SUPER late because I already have my February box but I really wanted to get my review of January's up first. For those of you unfamiliar with BoxyCharm, it is a monthly beauty subscription box. You receive 4-5 FULL SIZED products each month. The subscription is $21.00 a month and usually has a theme.  The theme for January was "Rock 2018".  After seeing the spoilers I knew I was going to like this box I just didn't realize how much. Check out my video below to see my unboxing of my January BoxyCharm!

January Favorites

Hey Guys,
I know we are almost half way though February but I felt the need to share my January Favorites. I already took the time to film the video so I figured I would still put it up. Even though we haven't had a super cold or snowy winter, I am so excited that its almost the Spring. I can't wait for longer days and warmer weather. I didn't have anything too exciting happen in the past couple months. However, I have decided to redo my living room which has been pretty exciting. My house has literally looked the same since I first moved into it 5 years ago. I have wanted to change things for quite a while since it's looked the same since when me and my ex first got married. I needed to get the old out and in with the new. My hesitation was that I knew it wasn't going to be cheap. If I could redecorate my whole entire house all at once I definitely would. However, money wise, that's just not that realistic for me. I've decided to do one room at a time and started with my living room. I will do my kitchen and bathrooms this summer. My bedroom decor has changed a little bit over the years but unfortunately all the furniture will stay as is until I move out of this house. As I'm typing this post from my living room couch I look around and it just feels better. It feels like my own now. Not mine and my ex's stuff. Anyways, I know my blog is mainly beauty and fashion but if you guys wanted to see my living room fully redecorated I could post some pics and let you know where I got each of the items. It's still a work in progress but I think I will have most of the decorating finished in the coming weeks. Back to what this post is about, my January Favorites. Check out my video below to see what I was loving last month!

Review: Pixi Glow Tonic and Peel & Polish


Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on some Pixi Beauty "Skintreats" that I've been using for the past couple of months. I've wanted to try Pixi skincare for quite a while. My friend Molika picked me up the Glow Tonic and Peel & Polish as a gift. I was super excited to try them out. I'm finally ready to share my thoughts. Keep reading to hear how I liked these products.
Review: Pixi Glow Tonic and Peel & Polish

Pixi Skintreats Glow Tonic $15.00-$29.00
Review: Pixi Glow Tonic and Peel & Polish
Here is what is said about this product on the Pixi Beauty site:
• Exfoliates and purifies the skin with Glycolic Acid
• Ginseng improves circulation and energizes
• Aloe vera soothes and hydrates
• Refines the appearance of pores
• Gently accelerates cell renewal to reveal a brighter, glowing complexion
• Balances, heals and soothes for radiant, healthier looking skin
• Alcohol free
• Suitable for all skin types
• Not tested on animals


Ingredients
Water/Aqua/Eau, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Glycolic Acid, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Sodium Hydroxide, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Leaf Extract, Aesculus Hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut) Seed Extract, Hexylene Glycol, Fructose, Glucose, Sucrose, Urea, Dextrin, Alanine, Glutamic Acid, Aspartic Acid, Hexyl Nicotinate, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin, Disodium EDTA, Biotin, Panthenol, PPG-26-Buteth-26, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance (Parfum), Caramel, Red 4 (CI 14700). 250ml/ 8.5 fl. oz.

You are supposed to use this in the morning or at night and apply to a cleansed face. 

On to my thoughts:
I have tried may different toners and this has come to be one of my favorites. It doesn't really have a scent which is good if you are sensitive to stuff like that. It does give you that slight tingling feeling which I love because it makes me feel like the product is actually doing something. This is why I really like products that have Glycolic Acid in the. I haven't paid too much attention to my pores but I will start doing so to see if they look smaller. I do feel like my skin has looked less red and just better since using this product. I recieved a giant bottle of the glow tonic from Pixi around Christmas so I won't run out for quite a while. When I finally do, I will definitely repurchase.

Review: Tarte Face Products*

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to be sharing my thoughts on some Tarte face products. You can see my previous reviews of lip products HERE and the Tartelette palette HERE. Keep reading to hear my thoughts on each of the products below!

Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Bronzer in Park Ave Princess $30.00

Review: Tarte Face Products*
Here is what is said about this product on the Tarte site:
"Tarte's best-selling bronzing powder in the iconic park ave princess  shade.Want to create that perfect seamless, sunkissed radiance? It’s now easier than ever to bronze & glow with Tarte’s best-selling, multi-tasking bronzer formulated to blend and build your perfect level of uniform bronze. Available in Tarte’s signature park ave princess radiant bronze shade, the waterproof formula adds instant warmth and dimension across a variety of skin tones as Amazonian clay helps improve overall skin clarity, texture and tone for an overall lit from within complexion."
Review: Tarte Face Products*
On to my thoughts:
I have always wanted to try this bronzer. While it does have some shimmer in the pan, I don't notice any on my face. I would consider this a medium toned bronzer. It's darker than most of the bronzers I use during the winter however, it really doesn't look too dark on me. I think I will be able to use this all year round which is great. This is pigmented but is more buildable which makes it easy to wear when I am at my lightest (like right now). I definitely agree that this gives dimension and flow to your face. I am really loving this bronzer and have been reaching for it often.

Fashion & Beauty Christmas Haul: Express, VS PINK, ABH, JustFab & more!!!

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share a beauty and fashion haul with you. It's all stuff that I got on and around the holidays. Its a mix of gifts, PR stuff, and items that I've bought myself. This will be my last haul for a while until I am caught up on reviews and tutorials that I need to edit and post. Let me know if you guys like seeing hauls or not. I did pick up a few things at Express recently and I have a bunch of new makeup that I am getting soon. I could do a haul if you are interested in that. Otherwise the next fashion haul probably won't be until the Spring. Would you guys like me to continue to do beauty hauls or would you rather see more reviews and tutorials?

Review: Tarte Tartelette Palette*

Hey Guys,
Today I am going to share my thoughts on the OG Tartelette Palette. I received this from Tarte before the holidays and while this is not brand new, I still wanted to share my thoughts on it. I already owned the Tartelette in Bloom and I just got the Tartelette Toasted for Christmas. I am excited to own the whole collection and think that they each have their own qualities that set them apart from one another. Do you NEED to own all 3? No, especially if you are looking for specific things in a palette. But if you are a makeup lover like me, I think that owning all 3 is perfectly fine. Keep reading to hear my thoughts on this palette and to see a look that I created!

Review: Tarte Tartelette Palette
Here is what is said about this product on the Tarte site:
"An everyday eyeshadow palette with 12 all matte shades that are anything but basic. Warm & cool matte eyeshadows ranging from light to deep are arranged in rows for 3 easy looks – customize your application to switch from natural to dramatic. The superblendable Amazonian clay-infused powder formula glides on like a cream, providing longwearing, intense payoff that’s never chalky or patchy."
Review: Tarte Tartelette Palette

  • free spirit (cream)
