Review on Shopping My Samples-Week 2

Hey guys! I'm back with the reviews of the samples that I used last week. I did push one of the mask to this week because of the Lush Fresh Fresh Mask that I forgot I purchased and wanted to use it before it expired. So let's get into the reviews!!

Tigi Glow Blush in Haute

Box it came from: Glossybox
Sample size or Full Size: Full Size
Price Point: 22.00
Review: I really love this blush!! The color is so gorgeous, it gives your skin a  nice bronzy glow. I don't think I've seen a blush in this color before. It's perfect for summer. It has great pigmentation and just an overall great product. I think 22.00 is a bit much for the size of the product, I'm sure I can find a dupe out there. Here is a swatch of the blush:

Addiction NV Cosmetics Lip Gloss in Have A Mojito

Box it came from: Beauty Army
Sample Size or Full Size: Full Size
Price Point: 16.00
Review: I thought this lip gloss was just okay. I really liked the minty scent it had and that it was not sticky at all. It went on pretty smooth but didn't last for too long. I had to reapply a couple time during the day. I love the color that I got, it was a very pretty shimmery bronze color. It looked very neutral on me. When I was looking for this company, it said that they were no longer available. I thought that the company went out of business but they are under a new brand name, Hey Sailor Cosmetics and have repackaged everything. I'm not sure how much this tube of gloss was under the old brand name, I'm just going by what the price is now. Here is a swatch of the gloss:

Nicka K New York Very Chelsey 350 Solid Perfume

Box it came from: Glossybox
Sample Size or Full Size: Full Size
Price Point: 14.99
Review: This was such an interesting product to try out! I don't think I've ever heard of solid perfume or seen perfume in this form before! I really liked the scent of this, it was a mild musky scent to me. The only thing I didn't like is that I couldn't smell the perfume half way through the day. I'm not sure if I was using it correctly or it was my nose lol! I think I probably would repurchase something like this again.

M.V. Organics Body Oil

Box it came from: Birchbox
Sample Size or Full Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 80.00
Review: I really enjoyed using this body oil. The scent was a bit strong for me at first but faded as the oil absorbed into my skin. I love how soft and supple my skin felt. It really absorbed down into my skin and kept it moisturized all day. I feel this is a good quality product and would repurchase this body oil. I wish the company sold this oil in different sizes.

Serious Skincare Glycolic Gommage Exfoliating Facial

Box it came from: Birchbox
Sample Size or Full Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 38.00
Review: I didn't know what to expect from this product. The title of it just threw me off and I wasn't sure if it was a facial cleanser or exfoliater. It's actually a facial mask and exfoliator in one, gotta love a multi-purpose product! You would apply this as a mask and then gently exfoliate your skin as you're washing it off. This was like other mask/exfoliating products that I've used before. It left my skin feeling soft and it had a nice glow to it. I don't think I would repurchase this particular one but I would love to have a mask/exfoliating product.

Whish Correcting Gel

Box it came from: Birchbox
Sample Size or Full Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 32.00
Review: I haven't had any luck trying out gel based moisturizers. They have not kept my skin moisturized and made my face feel pretty dry. This correcting gel is different from the others I've tried. I love the pleasant coconut scent of this moisturizer. It gel moisturizer really kept my skin hydrated and soft throughout the day. My T-Zone didn't get oily at all and I really enjoyed using this product. I think I would repurchase this moisturizer, it would be great to use during the warmer seasons.

Those are my reviews for the products used for week 2. Have you used any of these products? What were your thoughts on them? Comment below and let me know!!

  1. The only solid perfume I've heard of is an MJ perfume. Rachel Talbott on YT always raves about hers, I think they are such a nifty idea, great for on the go!
    Thanks for sharing!

    1. I'll have to check out that perfume. I think they are a great product, if I try one again hopefully the scent lasts a bit longer. Thanks for stopping by Lily!!

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…
