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!

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…
