Review on Shopping My Beauty Samples-Week 4

It seems like April just flew by because May will be here soon! I'm glad the Spring Weather is here, I'm loving it!! So here are my reviews on the products I used this week!!

Bvlgari Tea Bag For Bath

Box it came from: Glossybox
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 9.50
Review: Funny thing is, I rarely take baths. I don't really have time to sit and relax in one, I'm always on the go. I was really curious about this product, how it would work and be like. I was trying to figure out when I would have time to even take a bath this week and my wonderful boyfriend made that happen. He just finished giving our son a bath and I heard the water running again so I figured he was cleaning the tub. Well, I kept hearing the water running and I'm like "what kind of cleaner is he using that takes so long??" I go to the bathroom and he's running a bath for me!! According to him, the tea bag didn't make bubbles, it just made the water a milky color. So he put bubble bath in the tub also. Here is what the bag looked like.

Sorry, I had to pull it out the tub lol. The aroma it gave my bathroom was so wonderful!! It felt so relaxing and I really enjoyed it. I would use this again, it was pretty interesting. Oh and I also got candles and wine while Mommy got to relax for about an hour!!

100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Mascara

Box it came from: Birchbox
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 21.00
Review: I've used body products by this company and really loved them!! I always enjoy using products that are good for you and made from pure ingredients that you can pronounce lol!! I was pretty excited when I saw this in my box. It smells so good, I have the one with Black Tea but it smells like blueberries to me. It really defined my lashes and gave them really great volume! I would use this mascara again, I really enjoyed it! Well, I'm still using it until it's empty lol!! Here is picture of the wand.

Missha Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Hydro Gel Mask

Box it came from: Glossybox
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 6.00
Review: Now when I saw this, I was like "Um snail on my face, yuck!!" I put it in my drawer and was scared to use it lol! I didn't know what to expect from this mask. I will say it was very interesting. It was super slippery like a snail is. The mask came it two halves, one for the top and one for the bottom. It was kind of difficult to remove the film from the mask because it was so slippery. It just felt very different on my face, I don't know how to describe it. I left it on for about a half hour and my skin really felt so soft and smooth. I don't know if I would repurchase this one but it wasn't so bad after all. Here is what the mask looked like and I just happened to have washed my hair that day too. 

Joan Vass Perfume

Box it came from: Birchbox
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 75.00
Review: Yes, I have a few perfume samples and I really like receiving them! I really enjoyed using this one. I loved the scent, it was pretty sweet to me even through its described as being clean and citrusy. It's perfect for this time of year. I honestly have not purchased an actually perfume for more than 40.00 and I usually get them from Victoria's Secret. I don't think I would repurchase this one but it was great to use for the week.

Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels

Box it came from: Birchbox
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 8 pairs for 30.00
Review: I've used a moisturizer by this company and I really liked using it. I was kinda excited to see this in my box. I didn't know what to expect from this product but I really enjoyed using it. Here is what the eye gels look like.

You would of course wash your face first, then peel the backing off and place the gel side under your eyes and leave on for 10 minutes. Here is what they look like on. Excuse my crazy looking hair, I did this before going to bed.

I didn't feel a cooling sensation at all but when I took them off, I looked refreshed and not so tired. It brightened under my eye area and it just looked so good. I think I would repurchase this. 

Pida Exfoliating Gel

Box it cam from: Beauty Army
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 54.00
Review: This was also another interesting product that I tried. Just from reading the outside, I thought this was a regular exfoliator. When I opened it, it looked like clear gel that you use in your hair. I didn't see any beads or anything that would make it look like it would exfoliate my skin. So I applied to my face and it just felt like a gel until it started to bead up and that was the dead skin cells. I was really surprised by this. My skin was left feeling super soft, I was really impressed!! Now for this price, I don't know if I would repurchase but I really loved this one!!

Embryolisse Nourishing Moisturizer

Box it came from: Birchbox
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 16.00
Review: I've seen a few makeup artist that I watch on YouTube raving about this moisturizer. I was pretty happy to see it in my box so I could try it out for myself. Now I see what they are talking about. This moisturizer really keeps my skin moisturized, it feels so soft and works well under your makeup. I just really like this moisturizer but I have to watch how much I apply to my face because one day my T-Zone was pretty oily. I would repurchase this one.

So that's it for this weeks reviews. I have just one more left for the end of April and I can't wait for May!!! Have you used any of these products? What were your thoughts on them? Comment below and let me know!!

Morphe Brush Review

Happy Tuesday!! Just can't believe Christmas is next week!! Did you get all your shopping done? I did for the most part, now it's just putting things together lol!! Well this post is going to be a review on Morphe brushes. I'm sure you have heard the name and seen some of your favorite makeup artist using them. I purchased these at IMATS back in April and have been loving them. I already want to purchase more. So let's get into the reviews.


(M411- Pointed Blender and M200-Deluxe Crease)
It is always important to blend, blend blend your makeup!! I do have a few blending brushes but I wanted to have a few backups when I clean them. I love how soft these brushes are and how well they blend out eye shadows. I mainly use the Pointed Blender(black bristles) for the the outer crease and the deluxe crease(brown bristles) for right above my lid. 

(B1-Jumbo Fluffy Brush and M439-Deluxe Buffer)
I normally don't set my foundation with a powder and wanted to start doing s…

September Favorites

I can't get over the fact that October is here and it still feels like Summer. We had a brief Fall weekend but Summer was like Nope, I'm still hanging around lol! Today I am sharing my September Favorites with a special guest. My son has been wanting to film with me for a while so I decided to let him in on the video. Be prepared to laugh! 

You guys may see another appearance from my son, he is so silly and full of energy lol! I think I forgot to mention some favorites but you'll see them next month. What products have you tried? What were your thoughts? See you guys Thursday!

Have you tried the new Starbucks drink? It seems like it is missing something, like it needed to be sweeter or needed some saltiness. 
They recently opened a Zara in the mall near me! It is so nice in there, I only purchased one dress.

Fro Butter Emu Oil Review

Well I guess Summer is still trying to hold on lol. I was about to pack away all the Summer clothes but I should leave them out I guess. I'll go through all my Fall wardrobe in the meantime to see what I'll need when the weather gets cooler. Today I am sharing my review on Fro Butter Emu Oil. 

I don't know if I told you guys but I am one of Fro Butter's ambassadors for the next 6 months! I was so excited when I got the email about being chosen. You will be seeing post about their products more on here and my Instagram. 
A little background on this company before we hop into the review: 
Fro Butter is a Black Owned Business started in 2012 by owners Susana Stewart and Caroline Maina. They were in the market for affordable and organic hair products and it all started from there. 
I was introduced to this product last year when I received it in my Onyx Box. I really loved the product and so did my husband and son lol. Taken directly from the site, the Emu Oil is designed…
