Pure Ice French Kiss

Hey guys! Happy Monday! Today’s post is on Pure Ice French Kiss.

Pure Ice French Kiss

French Kiss is a pretty navy blue crème. It’s very pigmented and quite opaque. It applied nicely and dried pretty fast. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

NIVEA Lip Butter

Today’s review is on an item I got a while back from CVS. CVS had these in a 2 pack (BOGO free basically) and I couldn’t resist such a great deal. Here’s my take on the NIVEA Lip Butter.

NIVEA Lip Butter

What I love about this product? First is the flavor. I picked up Raspberry Rose Kiss and I love it. I was initially wary of the rose in the name thinking that it’d be a strong rose flavor but I don’t detect any rose at all. I have a weird thing with flower flavored stuff. I tend not to like them anywhere near my mouth. It might be more of a psychological thing than anything else but it worked out for me wit this one. I did pick up the plain one called Smooth Kiss as a backup and the Caramel Cream Kiss for me and my hubby in our bathroom counter. I will say that he rarely uses it so it’s mostly just for me. I use it religiously every night before I go to bed and I have the Raspberry Rose Kiss one handy in the living room for when my lips feel dry when I’m puttering around the house. The formula is nice and smooth. There is no stickiness or tackiness really so it’s a win for me. One thing that I know some will not like about it is that it comes in a tin form. They don’t like the thought of dipping a finger back in over and over again as it makes it a breeding ground for bacteria. I actually don’t even dip my finger in it for the same reason. I just bring it to my lips and apply it on that way. I will eventually have to use my fingers when it gets to a point where what I’m doing now won’t reach the product anymore.

What I don’t like about this product? Nothing at all.

More details on this item is available on their website here and it is carried by mass retailers and drugstores nationwide as well as by some online retailers.

Philosophy The Microdelivery Daily Exfoliating Wash

Hey guys! It’s the middle of the week again. The next 2 days will fly by fast for sure. I’m looking forward to catching up on taking pictures for the blog and some international fair at my in-laws’ town. Do you guys have a face scrub or face wash you regularly use? Here’s my take on the Philosophy The Microdelivery Daily Exfoliating Wash.

Philosophy The Microdelivery Daily Exfoliating Wash

What I love about this product? I got this in a swap with my co-worker sis Renu. She got this from Dillard’s I believe but found it to be too abrasive. I told her I may have a milder facial wash that she can try and keep if she liked it that’s also from Philosophy. That worked out much better for her and she brought this to work for me to try and keep if I ended up liking it. I don’t mind scrubby face washes so everything worked out well for both of us. I use this daily before I go to bed. I don’t find this too harsh for everyday use but my co-worker sis did so keep that in mind. She said that she noticed her face getting a few dry patches like it’s dry so I told her to switch (she wasn’t even using it everyday!). It has a light, pleasant scent that I describe as clean and neutral. The formula is creamy translucent white in color.

What I don’t like about this product? Nothing at all really. I wouldn’t mind picking this up again after I run out.

This item is available on their website in different sizes.

Target Summer 2015 Beauty Box #3

The last beauty box from Target that I got was what I call the Target Summer 2015 Beauty Box #2. Here’s the Target Summer 2015 Beauty Box #3.

Target Summer 2015 Beauty Box #3

Everything came in a black reusable sturdy cardboard box. This one was only $5 and most of the items are targeted for curly hair. I am still pleased with it as I will be giving these as stocking stuffers for the holiday season.

Dove Quench Absolute Crème Serum

Jane Carter Revitalizing Leave-In Conditioner

SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil

Curls Créme Brule Whipped Curl Cream

Colgate Optic White Platinum Express White Toothpaste

Aquaphor Healing Ointment

Regardless if the box is $5 or $7, Target has been hitting it out of the park with these. I can’t wait to get the next one now. As usual, it does come with a $3 off $15 coupon on beauty items to use at Target.

Sinful Colors Why Not

Hey guys! How are your weekends coming along? Mine consisted of relaxing a bit while catching up on taking pictures for the blog. I also helped out with some of the gardening today. My husband’s the farmer here but I was eager to help out when it got cloudy. We picked a lot of tomatoes and peppers as well as some okra. A roast has been assembled in the slow cooker that we’ll turn on before we go to bed tonight and it’s just catching up with cleaning and laundry tomorrow. My trip was short but fun and I’m looking forward to going back to Vegas soon. Today’s post is on Sinful Colors Why Not.

Sinful Colors Why Not

Described as “a clear sky blue”, this one of the 27 shades from their A Class Act Collection for back to school. This is much darker than what I pictured a sky blue color to be but I like it. It’s a pretty pigmented blue in that collection and it’s a stunning shade. It’s deep and opaque. Shown is one with no top coat.

Sinful Colors is available at various retailers and drugstores such as Walmart, Target, CVS, and Walgreens. They have a list of retailers up on their website here. They’re usually priced at $1.99 but you can score some for as low as $0.99 each when there is a BOGO promo or some special pricing on these.
