Curious about this neon sign? Well, this summer I made a discovery: St. Ives opened a pop-up mixing bar in downtown Manhattan! (Soho to be exact). I’ve always liked St. Ives products, but I kind of forgot about them for a while and this motivated be to give them another try. (Side note: the pop is only open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. until September 30th, so get there while you can!)
When walking into the shop, right away you see the neon sign, the shop is very bright and everything is white, green and apricot-the St. Ives colors! One of the sales associates sent me to an area with sinks to try the products, she also gave me a form to fill out with my preferences. I could choose between a customized body lotion or face scrub- I went with the face scrub (you can also get both). Since I have sensitive skin, I choose the Avocado Honey Scrub, which hydrates and nourishes the skin and is a moderate exfoliant (I would have gone with the mild scrub, but it was sold out).
As I was standing online to hand in the form, I noticed these fun shelves decorated with different fruits that represent the St. Ives ingredients. You can see the watermelon and avocado display below.
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 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.
Here is the description from the Valentia website:
“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. Skin moisture is replenished and protected with Botanical Hyaluronic Acid, Safflower and Shea Butter. Tired and dull looking skin is restored to unveil a healthier, more vibrant glow!”
This is my favorite Valentia skincare product to date! The Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer lives up to its name.
