Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme

Hey guys! I’m off to a great start so far for this weekend but I wanted to share my thoughts on something I’ve tried a few times recently. Today’s post is on something I got from my ipsy September 2016 Glam Bag. Here’s Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme.

Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme

What I love about this product? I love that the packaging is easy to carry around and stash it in my purse. This is basically an iridescent lip gloss that gives you slight plumping that’s of a more natural look. I love how glossy the finish is on the lips. It’s slightly sticky on the lips — definitely not as sticky as other glosses I’ve used. The first time I used this product, I tested it on the right side of my lips to compare if it really does anything. It immediately started tingling and it’s not just a minty type of tingle. It actually has a pain level to it but nothing I couldn’t endure. What is surprising is that sensation lasted for about 7 minutes on me. It didn’t show much plumping really in my opinion but my right side of the lips are definitely redder (from the stinging I imagine). I guess the effect is really subtle. Everyone’s pain threshold is different so what is stinging to me might be really painful or not at all to others. I think this is what I commonly read on what people have to say about it. Be careful not to get it anywhere else as it does sting too when it comes into contact with your skin (I went over my lip line once and that area reddened immediately). I personally like the smell, which is strawberry-ish with a hit of vanilla or something.

What I don’t like about this product? I wish that it would last longer on the lips. The formula is the kind that wears off easily and fast. The science behind it to me is that the stinging is basically the reason why the lip plumps up with use. I personally don’t care for that. Plus, this one stings more than others I’ve sampled in the past with less visible results. I’ll use this one I have until it’s all gone but I personally won’t be purchasing it.

Freeman Feeling Beautiful Pink Grapefruit Exfoliating Scrub

Hey guys! It’s the start of my weekend already! YAY! Turns out that I can’t roll over more than 7.5 vacation days into next year so that means I get to use the rest up so I took tomorrow and Friday off! Hopefully this will give me a chance to catch up by taking pictures for newer blog entries. Here’s my take on the Freeman Feeling Beautiful Pink Grapefruit Exfoliating Scrub.

What I love about this product? It comes in a nice tube packaging so I can squeeze out how much I want to use very easily. The texture of this is gel like in appearance, lightly pink and it has tiny crystal bits for scrubbiness. The scent is of pink grapefruit (I can smell the tartness too!) and while it leans on the stronger side when in use, it dissipates once it’s off your face. It is very gentle on the skin — perfect for those with sensitive skin. I don’t find this to be drying at all and it leaves my skin refreshingly clean.

What I don’t like about this product? It’s too light, too gentle for me as a facial scrub but that’s a personal preference.

Walmart Fall 2016 Beauty Box

I got my Walmart Fall 2016 Beauty Box in about 2 weeks ago. I was fairly pleased with what I got for $5 (yet again!).

The boxes vary in terms of worth to me each time but what it boils down to is it’s just $5 and looking at everything I got, that’s not a bad price for it at all.

Freeman Feeling Beautiful Avocado & Oatmeal Clay Mask

I dislike Mondays. Who doesn’t? Well okay, some people don’t but a lot of people are in the same boat as me. It’s Tuesday now and I’m still in a mood. I think I’m coming down with something as well, so in an effort to get me out of this blah mood I decided to use a face mask and I picked out a trusted one. Here’s my take on the Freeman Feeling Beautiful Avocado & Oatmeal Clay Mask.

Freeman Feeling Beautiful Avocado & Oatmeal Clay Mask

What I love about this product? It comes in the tube packaging that makes it easy to use. The mint green color is a very nice touch — I dig it. The scent isn’t extremely strong compared to some other ones they make. It doesn’t smell like avocados to me though. It smells more like something that makes me think of baby powder. It doesn’t bother me for the length of time it has to be on my face. I feel like this is one of their less drying clay face masks but I haven’t tried every single one they carry just yet. Directions are easy to follow on the back of the tube. Just apply the product to face and neck. Sometimes when I want to use a clay mask in the winter but am afraid it’d be too drying, I apply it right onto my face without washing it first. Leave it on until it dries and wash off with warm water. It is recommended to be used “two times a week or as often as needed”. I love how this product leaves my face squeaky clean and soft. I do notice that it sucked up all the oils from my face.

What I don’t like about this product? Nothing at all! It’s very reasonably priced and is available at various retailers nationwide.

Curtain Call: The Body Shop Honeymania Soap

Hey guys! Sorry I’ve been slacking off on the posts. Real life just takes over sometimes and one of my philosophies with having this blog is it’s just for fun and I only work on it when I have free time to do so. I have used up something completely recently so it’s another entry under the Curtain Call category. Here’s my take on the The Body Shop Honeymania Soap.

The Body Shop Honeymania Soap

What I love about this product? It smells really, really good! If you’re a fan of their Honeymania body products, you’ll love this too! The floral scent is not overpowering at all. It is described on their website with the following: “This honeycomb-shaped soap has a cute bee at its centre. It has a rich, floral scent and contains Community Trade honey made from the nectar of over 1,000 wildflowers. Lather up for skin that feels silky soft.” It’s a pretty glycerin soap that is pretty enough as a decoration piece in the bathroom. It cleans well, suds up really nice and leaves my skin clean without drying it. The hexagon shape makes it really easy to grip for use in the shower. I pair this with the body cream to make the scent last all day. It lasted as long as most glycerin soaps last.

What I don’t like about this product? I briefly touch on it above, the scent doesn’t last on you. But that’s how most bar soaps are so just pair it with their other products to make the scent last on you all day.
