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!
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!
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!
Hi friends! As you know, some time has gone by since my last review. This Spring has been a whirlwind, I have been so busy that I had to put blogging on hold for a couple of weeks. I also wanted to take some time to test new skincare products, which allows me to see the long term effects. The product I’m reviewing today is the Valentia Clear Lift Revitalizing Serum. Valentia has become one of my favorite natural skincare brands ever since I reviewed the True Glow Eye Cream & Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask (to read the review, click on this link https://wordpress.com/post/chicprettyfun.com/1216).
*(scroll down to the end of my review for information about a special discount for my reader)
Here is the description of the product as posted on www.valentia.com: “This luxuriously revitalizing treatment is formulated to bring out your best self. Infused with a unique blend of botanicals, essential oils, and vitamins, this serum supports circulation and reoxygenation. Your skin is left hydrated, more even, and resilient to future damage. Valentia’s ClearLift Revitalizing Serum is a transformative addition to any skin care routine.”
Applying a serum is an essential part of my daily skincare routine. I prefer to apply a serum at night. After cleansing and removing my makeup, I apply the Clear Lift Revitalizing Serum first, then after a few minutes, I apply a night cream. Some of the results I’ve experienced since using this serum are: brighter and better skin tone, less visible fine lines, better skin elasticity. In addition to that, the Clear Lift Revitalizing Serum is also very moisturizing (always a plus for people with dry skin like myself!). Unlike other serums I’ve tried in the past, this one is not thick or heavy, so you can use it all year round. Finally, it smells delicious! It has a very light natural citrus smell.
Happy Spring everyone! After taking a short break from blogging, I’m back today with my review of Make Beauty. I was one of the lucky bloggers selected to review two of their products. Before I get into my review, I’d like to share some information about the brand.
Make Beauty is a hypoallergenic beauty and skincare brand and all their products are made in NYC. Here is a description of what this beauty company does:
“We develop products to spark your own irresistible desire to create. Professionally formulated but user friendly, every product is designed for personal experimentation –wear wet or dry, alone or layered, subtle or super-pigmented. The collections for lips,eyes, cheeks and skin offer rich formulations and rare palettes for an unconstrained range of colors, finishes and textures. Whether the look is a perfect no-makeup makeup or modern minimal alongside a more pigmented finish is entirely up to you.”
Hi everyone! I hope that all is well with you! As you already know from my previous reviews, I love OZ Naturals Skincare (link to previous review https://chicprettyfun.com/2015/10/19/oz-naturals-broad-spectrum-tinted-sunscreen-spf-30/). For those of you who do not know much about the OZ Naturals company, their mission is to bring you skincare products that are “anti-aging, natural ingredients, and utilizing the latest technology to formulate the highest quality skin care products on the market” as stated in the About Us page on their website (http://www.oznaturals.com/info/About_Us). As a pet owner, I also love that all OZ Natural products are cruelty free. As you may already know, I only review products that I believe in, I can tell you that OZ Naturals skincare products deliver what they promise and are also affordable.
Now onto my review of the Matrix 6 Mega Bright Eye Gel. As someone who has suffered from dark under eye circles since childhood, I’ve used a wide variety of skincare products over the years hoping to minimize their appearance, often with disappointing results. So when I was chosen by OZ Naturals to review the Matrix 6 Mega Bright Eye Gel, I jumped at the opportunity to try it! After testing this product for over a week I can tell you that it works! As with the other OZ Natural skincare products I have tried, I saw immediate results after just a few days. This eye gel contains the following ingredients: a Matrixyl Synthe’6 (a compound that regulates cell activity and collagen tissue remodeling) Haloxyl (reduces dark circles/anti-inflammatory), Caffeine (reduces puffiness), Hyaluronic Acid and Apple Stem Cells (both anti-aging).
Hello all! It’s been a while since my last post, but I’m finally back! I recently went to a Harmon store, and all these beautiful e.l.f. beauty products were on display. You can all guess what happened next…I bought a bunch of them! They’re so affordable, it’s too tempting! I’ve used e.l.f. products before, so I decided to try some new ones this time around. Here is a list of what I purchased:
