Shopping My Beauty Samples

Happy Thursday!! I am loving this warm Fall weather so far. I haven't been in my beauty samples enough lately but I have tried a few that I wanted to share today. Let's get into the reviews.

Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer

Sample Size or Full Size: Sample Size
Box It Came From: Sephora
Price Point: Between $18-72
Review: I got this primer when I redeemed 100 points at Sephora (I'm there a lot lol). I have heard so many things about this primer, I had to try it for myself. I really like the silky texture of this primer and how smooth it goes on. You have to be careful with how much you apply because it can give a white cast on your face. It gives my foundation a nice, flawless look and covers pores very well. I do get very oily in my T-Zone but other than that, I really love this primer. I may invest in the full size but this travel size has a lot of product that will last for a while.

Wei Golden Root Purifying Mud Mask

Sample Size or Full Size: Sample Size
Box It Came From: Birchbox
Price Point: 8 mask for 42.00
Review: I always love getting new facial mask to try out. I thought the packaging on this mask was so cute! There was more than one use in this container which I loved. This mask when on so smooth and made my face feel so soft and looks amazing. I would most likely purchase this again. Here are pictures of the mask and me wearing it lol.

Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritzer

Sample Size or Full Size: Sample Size
Box It Came From: Birchbox
Price Point: 24.50
Review: I tried a cleanser by this brand and really loved it. I figured this toner would be just as amazing and it was. I loved the refreshing scent it had and how it felt when I sprayed it on my face. It gave my skin some extra moisture in a way and I just love it. I would purchase the full size bottle.

Klorane Soothing and Relaxing Patches

Sample Size or Full Size: Full Size
Box It Came From: Ipsy
Price Point: Box of 7 for 21.00
Review: I love trying out masks for the under eye area. I thought there was only one patch in each package but there is a set for both eye areas. Here is what the eye patches looked like.

They went on very easy and I loved the cooling sensation. I did feel very relaxed when I had these patches on. My under eye area looked so refresh and bright after I used them. I would most likely repurchase again. Here is a picture of me wearing them lol.

So that is it for Shopping My Beauty Samples. Have you tried any of these products? What were your thoughts? Comment below and let me know. See you guys Sunday!! Enjoy the weekend!

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…
