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!


~**Drea Notes**~

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

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.

I normally don't set my foundation with a powder and wanted to start doing s…

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…
