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

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 

One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.

This is anothe…
