Shopping My Beauty Samples

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July. I spent time with family swimming and watching the fireworks. It has been a while since I've done a post in this series so let's shop my beauty samples.

NYX Ombre' Blush in Insta Flame

Box It Came From: Ipsy (I think lol)
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 10.00
Review: If you have been following me for a while, you know I rarely wear blush. This blush is so pretty and I love the ombre effect. NYX has some amazing products and this another one to add to the list. It is pretty pigmented and such a nice touch of pink on the cheeks. I think it would look great with any skintone. I would purchase another one. 

Olay Ultra Moisture Shea Butter Body Wash

Box It Came From: Walmart Beauty Box
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 5.99
Review: I love Olay body products and was excited to try this. I love anything with Shea Butter because it is so moisturizing and amazing for the skin. This body wash left my skin feeling so soft and moisturized. I would purchase the full size of this body wash.

Dove Dry Spray Invisible Antiperspirant

Box It Came From: Cocotique
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 5.49
Review: I was pretty skeptical when I first got this deodorant. I have always been a solid deodorant person and was afraid the spray one would get all over my clothes and not work as well. Well this one proved me wrong. It goes on clear and does not get on your clothes at all. It kept me fresh and dry all day which I was impressed with. The only thing is that the scent doesn't last all day but I do like this deodorant. Maybe I will try another spray deodorant. 

Creme of Nature Argan Oil Perfect Edges and Edge Brush

Box It Came From: Onyx Box
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 4.79
Review: I have tried a few edge controllers and I really love this one so far. It doesn't get dry or flaky and keeps my edges laid lol. I love that I got this with a edge control brush. I would normally use a toothbrush or my fingers lol. This brush really helps getting your edges to lay down and be smooth. I would purchase this again.

Burge On Pepa-Tree Hair and Scalp Treatment

Box It Came From: Cocotique
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 22.00
Review: After researching this company, I realized that they are very local and a black owned business. I am interested in trying more products. This product is used before you wash your hair. It really helped soothe my itchy scalp and loved the cooling sensation. I would purchase this again.

The Butter Bar Melan-In Skin Nourishing Serum and SPF 30

Box It Came From: Onyx Box
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 49.95
Review: I was pretty blown away when I saw this in my box. This product alone is worth than the box and couldn't wait to try it out. I needed something with an SPF in it to protect my skin from the sun. I love that this product is vegan and you know all the ingredients that you are putting on your face. The scent of this serum is amazing and I just love this skincare product. It works so well with my skin and I'm noticing a different in how healthy my skin looks. This is also a black owned business after doing some research. I would repurchase this.

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. Have a great weekend and see you guys Tuesday!!

Any good Summer shows this season? It seems like all the ones I get into are not renewed. I'm just happy Power is back!

I can't believe my son will be 6 next month! He is growing up too fast lol!


  1. All these products sound great Drea! I'm glad Power is back on for the Summer! Another good Summer show is The Carmichael Show. It's too bad this is the last since season. The main character is leaving and it's not being renewed.

    1. I started watching that show and haven't watched it in a while. I understand his reasoning why he cancelled the show. Thanks for stopping by Pilar!

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…
