Fab Fit Fun!

Hi everyone! After a long break, I’m back to blogging! I’ve been active on Instagram and Twitter, so you can always find me there in between blog posts. Hope you’ve been having a great summer! Summer is my favorite season, I love going to the parks, the beach and traveling (stay tuned for my future post about my  California trip).

Speaking of which, I decided to try out Fab Fit Fun right before summer began, so I received the Spring box full of summer goodies! I had a discount code of $10, so the box cost $39.99. The regular price is $49.99, but it’s a quarterly box rather than monthly and the value of the box is way above $100!

As you can see from the pictures, it’s a pretty large box! Also when you register you have to complete a profile, so you can tailor it to your preferences. I love everything and have been using all the products, so I’d say  my first box was a success! I also like that the bx contains a mix of different products, unlike other boxes which focus on just one specific area (skincare, makeup etc). See below for more pictures and details of the products inside!

This round tie-dye beach blank is one of my favorite finds from the box, together with the green bikini bag. I’ve been using both all summer long!
Since I have a monthly makeup subscription at the moment, I decided to cancel my FabFitFun after I tried this one box. However I would consider subscribing for a year in the near future, given the value and amount of products and how useful and fun they all were. I also discovered that after you cancel you can reactivate your account when you wish to continue with the subscription.

I hope that this post was fun to read as well as informative. Until next time!

Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum

Disclaimer: While I received this product complimentary for testing purposes, all opinions are 100% my own.

Hi everyone! Fall is in full swing and I’m looking forward to the upcoming holiday season! I have unwillingly taken a break from blogging while I getting over a cold-this crazy weather didn’t help!  However, the upside is that I had more time to test the product that I’m reviewing today! Valentia Skin Care has a new product: the Night Revive Retinol Serum!

Here is the product description from valentia.com:

“A potent blend of Retinol, with essential vitamins and botanicals specifically chosen to enhance Retinol’s efficacy work together to create the serum your skin care dreams are made of. Retinol works down to the cellular level to stimulate collagen production and diminish even the deepest of wrinkles. Vitamin C helps Retinol penetrate deeper into the skin, while Vitamin E and Squalane nourish and hydrate, counteracting the drying effects of Retinol and maximizing anti-aging benefits. This transformative retinol serum will turn back the clock, giving you visibly smoother, rejuvenated skin.”

After testing this product for several weeks, I have only good things to say about it!

First of all, as someone with sensitive skin, not only does it not irritate my skin, it actually helps my skin recover from irritation! My evening skincare routine is too cleanse and apply toner, then moisturize- I also exfoliate 3 times a week. I’ve noticed that when my skin seems a little irritated  and red after cleansing, the next morning the irritation vanishes if I apply the Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum. Needless to say, I am now applying this serum every night!

I also like that it’s a nighttime serum, because I prefer to apply retinol at night since it can increase sensitivity to sunlight. According to the directions “Apply nightly to cleanse face and décolleté, before moisturizer. If irritation occurs, use every 2-3 night until skin adjusts. Use an SPF moisturizer during the day time”

Another bonus is the applicator, which I love because it makes it easy to control the amount of serum I want to use on different parts of my face.

Hello lovelies and Happy Fall! Well, at least  it is officially Fall here on the East Coast. September has been such a busy month for me, with work, testing new products and planning new  reviews. However, I’ve been very excited about the new beauty and skincare products I’ve tried so far. I’m  also happy I finally get to share this particular one with you today – the Valentia Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer.

“Packed with brightening power, this moisturizer helps to lighten pigmentation marks and enhance the radiance of your overall complexion. With energizing antioxidants like Ginseng and Kojic Acid to control melanin production, dark spots are faded and collagen production is enhanced, revealing firmer more even skin.

Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick

Disclaimer: I received the products featured in this blog complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes

Hi everyone! This summer I was one of the lucky people chosen by Influenster to review the Hourglasss Vanish Seamless Foundation Sitck & Brush set!

I’ve never used a stick foundation before, so I was very excited – and a little nervous- to try this! The appearance of the product alone is beautiful (see pictures below) and it received rave reviews on Sephora, but of course I had to test it and see for myself if it really lived up to its reputation.

Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask by Valentia Natural

Hello lovelies and Happy Summer! I hope that you all had a wonderful and a relaxing July 4th! This last month was stressful, so I took a little break from blogging to enjoy some much needed R&R at the beach! One way I try to relieve stress when I have a busy day (or week!) is to try to find a few minutes to pamper myself. Even during the course of my busiest week, I can usually find 15 minutes to do a face mask. I encourage and challenge everyone to do the same! You can watch your favorite trashy TV show while the mask is actively nourishing your skin! Or, if you’re really pressed for time, you can work at your computer or do chores (cleaning can also be a stress-relieving activity- well it is for me anyway!) and still reap the benefits of a face mask.  Which brings me to the latest mask I’ve been testing: the Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask by Valentia Skin Care!
