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!

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!

Valentia Eye Cream and Hydration Mask. Indulge your skin.

Disclaimer: all opinions are 100% my own

Hi there! While we are only a couple of weeks away from Spring, it’s still  cold here on the East Coast -well, some days anyway, it’s been a  crazy Winter! With the cold comes dry skin, which means I’m in desperate need for hydrating skincare products. I was one of the lucky  people selected to try a hydrating skincare line by a new company called Valentia. The timing could not have been more perfect!

Valentia was the Roman Goddess of healing and she relied on what nature provided to heel the citizens of Umbria.  She would help farmers heel their damaged skin from the sun with natural ingredients, such as berries and herbs. Similarly to the goddess that inspired it, the Valentia skincare company uses natural ingredients that can help repair sun  and wind damage, and prevent wrinkles and dark spots (paraphrased from http://www.valentia.com/pages/about-us).

I received two products for testing: the Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask and the True Glow Eye Cream. I tested both of them for about 2-3 weeks. I’m going to review the hydrating mask first.
