Shopping My Beauty Samples

Hey guys! Its been a while since I have done a post in this series. I was waiting to use enough samples to make a post.

Willa On The Go Towelettes

Box it came from: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 10.00
Review: I loved the scent of these towelettes but did not like them at all. They were easy to use and seemed to get the job done but after I used one, I started to feel this burning sensation on my face. It was not pleasant at all and it broke my face out a little. They immediately went in the trash after that and I would not repurchase these.

Skyn Blue Clay Mask

Box it came from: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: Box of 6 Mask for 39.00
Review: I was so interested in trying out this mask. I have tried previous facial products by this brand and loved them. This was a very easy mask to use, you applied Step 1 on your face first and when it started to foam up you would apply the other step until they were well blended. I was expecting it to be blue but it wasn't at all, just a white color. The mask did not harden at all and my skin looked so amazing after using this mask. I would repurchase but I think there should be more mask in a box for that price. Here is what the mask looked like on my face lol!

Youngblood Anti Shine Mattifier

Box it came from: Beauty Army
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 36.00
Review: This sample was sitting in my drawer for a while because I didn't think I needed to use this at all. Well with the warmer weather here, my T-Zone gets more oily than usual so I decided to give this a try. I was expecting a powder but when I opened it, this is what the product looked like.

I was surprised and thought it would make my skin more oily but it did not. You just apply to the oily areas and the oil was gone!! I was so happy with this product until it started to break me out! I was so sad because this really worked and was going to purchase the full size. Hopefully I will come across something soon like this.

Amlactin Moisturizing Body Lotion

Box it came from: Beauty Army
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 16.99
Review: It is sometimes a love/hate relationship with body lotions. Some of them work great and some leave my skin looking for more moisture. I love this body lotion. It really moisturized my skin and kept it soft all day. It wasn't too thick and really sank into the skin very well. I love the nice, clean scent of this lotion and I just loved using it. I have another sample size bottle of this and will be purchasing the full size soon.

So that is it for this post. Once I use some more samples, I will have another post from this series soon.

Is Monday really here again? I really enjoyed this weekend!!

Been loving this grill this summer, makes cooking dinner so much easier!


  1. i love amlactin! have purchased for years

    1. I love it too now! I will be getting some soon! Thanks for stopping by Elle!!

  2. That stinks you had reactions to two of the products! The Skyn Iceland mask sounds great.

    1. I know Tanya and I really loved that mattifying product! Ugh!! You should try the Skyn mask, I loved it!

  3. The Skyn mask sounds interesting...especially that it foams. My T-zone also gets really shiny this time of year, so this Mattifier sounded really good until I read that one broke you out, I will stick with my blotting papers.

    Nice reviews!

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…
