Review on Shopping My Beauty Samples-Week 3

Hey guys! Can you believe that Easter is here already?? Gotta play the Easter Bunny later after posting this!! So let's get into these reviews!!

Nelson J Beverly Hills Argan Oil 7 in 1 Non Foaming Shampoo

Box it came from: Beauty Army
Sample Size or Full Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 22.00
Review: This was a pretty interesting shampoo to use. I've never really used a 7 in 1 product for my hair before. I really didn't see what scent this was until I opened it. It smelled like very strong orange mint. It didn't bother me that much but it was just so strong. I actually enjoyed using this product. It really got my hair clean, had great slippage so I could detangle my hair and left my hair feeling pretty soft. I think I would repurchase this if it was in a different scent.

Etre Belle Collagen Aloe Vera Hydro Mask

Box it came from: Glossybox
Sample Size or Full Size: Full Size
Price Point: 39.50 for 10 masks
Review: This was another interesting product to use. I wondered how I was going to apply this mask to my face and what it was going to look like. It felt so different on my face, like there was cool gel just sitting there. Here is a picture of what the mask looked like on my face and me being silly lol!

You would apply the mask to your face and leave it on for 10-15 minutes and work the remaining gel into your face. My skin was so soft and felt so moisturized. I would use this mask again.

Elizabeth Mott Smooth Shadow Creamy Eye Pencil in Pearl

Box it came from: Ipsy
Sample Size or Full Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 14.99
Review: I really loved using this eye pencil. I've never used a eye pencil before and this one was pretty easy to use. I was really hoping this would be a twist up pencil but you have to sharpen it. The color I received was Pearl which is a really pretty golden, champagne color. I love that you can apply it heavy or blend it out for a more sheer, natural look. I would repurchase this again. Here is a closer look at the eye pencil and swatches.

Here is a look I created using the eye pencil,

Prestiche Lemongrass with Olive Oil Soap

Box it came from: Birchbox
Sample Size or Full Size: Full Size
Price Point: 16.99
Review: I didn't know what to expect with this soap. I thought it was going to smell like lemons but I was wrong. I really don't know how to describe what this smelled like but I didn't like it too much. As for using the soap, it was okay. My skin felt pretty nice after using it. This soap also came with a $40 gift card to use on anything on the website. I actually got two more soaps from this company. 

 Apothederm Bright Skin Serum

Box it came from: Birchbox
Sample Size or Full Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 67.50
Review: I've had some bad experiences with serums. I thought they were an unnecessary extra step for skin care. I decided to give them another chance and I'm glad I did. This serum has not broken my skin out and has been really great to use. I don't think I would not repurchase this one because of the price but I'm willing to search for a serum that will would for me.

Ojon Rare Blend Hair Oil

Box it came from: Birchbox
Sample Size or Full Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 35.00
Review: I was always curious about this hair oil. I've seen it in the stores but was just not really sure if I would like it. I was happy to get a sample of this before I purchased it. I used it last night when I washed my hair and I feel it's like other oils I've tried out. It kept my hair moisturized and had a great scent. I'm not too sure if I would repurchase this but I did enjoy using it.

MCMC Phoenix Perfume

Box it came from: Beauty Army
Sample Size or Full Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 95.00
Review: The combination of the peach and other floral notes in this perfume is amazing!! I love the scent of this perfume!! It reminds me of summer nights. I wish the full size wasn't so much, I would so purchase it. Hopefully I can find it in a smaller size.

That's it for Week 3 reviews. Have you used any of these products? What are your thoughts on them? Comment below and let me know!! Hope everyone has a great Easter!!!


  1. That mask sounds great! I got that same pencil in my Ipsy bag. I use it in the inner corners of my eyes.

    1. That mask was pretty interesting to use and it was pretty good. That eye pencil would be great to use in the inner corner of your eyes, thanks for the tip.

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!

I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…
