Shopping My Beauty Samples

It seems like the warm weather is trying to sneak back in lol. I hope the flip flop of weather doesn't mess with my allergies. I haven't shopped my beauty samples in a while and I have a few that I'm going to review today.

Fro Butter Emu Oil and Jamaican Black Castor Oil

Box It Came From: Onyx Box
Full Size or Sample Size: Travel Size
Price Point: 15.00
Review: I was really curious to give these butters a try. I have only used Shea Butter in my hair all this time. I really love both of these fro butters. They do not weigh my hair down, they both smell amazing and kept my hair soft and moisturized. The Emu oil is geared towards hair growth and the Jamaica black castor oil is to help thicken your hair. I would repurchase these.

Not Soap Radio Joy Inducing and Beach + Sky  Blue Water

Box It Came From:
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 16.00
Review:  I love when I get samples of body washes. The names of these are so cute and creative. I love how you can you use them for shower or bath. I only used these in the shower so far but have enjoying them so far. They lather very well, don't leave your skin feeling dry and smell amazing. I would probably repurchase.

Supergoop Sun Defying Suncreen Oil

Box It Came From: Birchbox
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 8.00-34.00
Review: I have never used a sunscreen oil before and was kind of scared to use it at first. I thought it would be more of a tanner than protect my skin from the sun. This really did help protect my skin from getting burned. I love the smell of this first of all and I was super surprised of how non greasy it was. It did not stain my clothes and was just a nice sunscreen. I may repurchase this.

NSpa Coconut Rich Body Butter

Box It Came From: Walmart
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 5.48
Review: Can I just say the scent of this made me think of being on a tropical island? I love coconut scented body products and I just love the scent of this. It is not too strong and has the right amount of coconut lol. I really loved the formula of this body butter. It kept my skin moisturized and soft all day and didn't feel heavy at all. I would repurchase this body butter.

Dr. Brant PoreDemabrasion Pore Perfecting Exfoliator

Box It Came From: Birchbox
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 58.00
Review: I have loved everything I got from Dr. Brandt and this is something to add to the list. His products are just amazing for your skin and work so well. I love how gentle this scrub was and it got the job done. My skin felt so smooth and soft. I know you can't put a price on skincare, I may invest in the full size.

Global Beauty Care Dead Sea Wash Off Mask

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 9.99
Review: The packaging for this is so convenient and easy to use. I was excited when I saw this mask, I love a good mud mask. I loved the way this one left my skin feeling so soft and looking healthy. I would probably repurchase this mask.

Cailyn Extreme Matte Tint in Surrealist

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 19.00
Review: Liquid lipsticks are still so popular now, it is hard to keep up with them. I have tried lip glosses by this company and liked them. I love the color of this lipstick and how pigmented it is. It does not feel drying at and has an amazing wear time. Here is a swatch of the lipstick. I most likely would repurchase this again.

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 Friday!

My son finally decided on a costume and wants to wear it everyday now lol. 

I am so proud of myself, I started Christmas shopping early this year. I just need to hide everything lol!


  1. These sample sound really nice! Especially the wash off mask and the NSpa Coconut Rich Body Butter. The Cailyn Extreme Matte Tint is so pigmented!

  2. My sample stash accrued so much that it got very overwhelming for me! I'm in the process of 'nesting' right now lol and ended up giving a whole bagful of samples to my MIL to take to her work and share with her friends. I absolutely LOVE Dr Brandt's PoreDermabrasion and encourage you to purchase the full size! The Global Beauty Care Dead Sea Wash Off Mask sounds wonderful, I'll definitely check into that! Thanks so much for sharing Andrea! x

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…
