Ipsy Glam Bag August Unboxing & Review

FullSizeRender 15

**Ipsy Glam Bag**

Hi there lovies! I hope you are all having a great start to your day today! I am here with my ipsy unboxing, and review This seems to be an okay month for my ipsy bag, as you may have noticed lately, I am pretty much over ipsy unfortunately. I have continued to be disappointed with not only the product selection, but the way ipsy handles things lately. I will admit it has definitely let me down, especially this last month after dealing with a leaked product that ruined everything in the bag, then emailing to get it replaced to find out, they were out of stock on the one item I was super excited about, of coarse they were out of stock of the tarte bronzer, ugghhhh. So that was a huge fiasco, and frustration that I had to deal with, and customer service didn’t really seem to truly care, again very disappointing, so all in all, I think I have 2 more months of my pre paid year, then I am most definitely canceling after being a subscriber for 2 years. My bags have been so sub par lately, it’s not worth it for me to continue to be a loyal subscriber, I would much rather spend the $10 elsewhere, sorry just being completely honest here, not everything can be peachy, especially when I am continuing to be let down with my bags. 

Let’s get right into the bag for August, it wasn’t a great bag for me, honestly these products don’t even really wow me, or even fit my profile, yes I am continuing to be negative, I’m sorry, I will try and not be so, but it’s hard lol! Okay, I really like the bag that it all came in this month, super cute, I love houndstooth! The only product that I really was excited about was the nail polish from AILA it’s a beautiful color, and the formula is great, and long lasting, yeah! I definitely want to try out the moisturizer from eco beauty as well, I definitely gravitate towwards more eco friendly brands for my skincare, so this will be good, there just isn’t a lot of product in the pouch, packaging is deceiving! The rest of the items in the bag are just kinda blah for me, not the best, and I will likely be swapping, or passing them along to someone who will use them. Like I said with only liking a couple items, I don’t think it’s worth it to me to stick with ipsy, I know a lot of you will disagree with me, but for me, and my makeup likes, and dislikes, this bag just doesn’t fit anymore. Thank you for reading, and sorry if this post seemed to negative, just honesty :)

Love With Food Snack Box Unboxing & Review August 2015

FullSizeRender 12

Screen Shot 2015-08-29 at 10.54.08 AM

Yeah for snacking right? I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far although it’s only Saturday morning. I definitely have a busy weekend planned ahead of me, lots to get accomplished, and it actually rained the past 2 days, crazy it hasn’t rained in what seems like forever, we definitely needed it! The sun is shining now though, but definitely still a storm is a brewing again!

I am so ready to eat these delicious snacks lol, so I really wanted this to get done! Love with food is a great snack subscription box, that offers organic, healthy, gluten free snack options. There is a huge variety, and tons of different, and unique brands that are offered in the box every month. They definitely know how to keep it fresh, and keep their subscribers interested, that’s always a good thing! I bought a 3 month subscription on a discount website, I think it was groupon so I got the box for around $9 each both for the deluxe snack box, which to try out is a great deal compared to the full price subscription. This is my third, and final month because I choose a different snack box (which I will post soon) instead, because I love the variety, and convince better. As you know I was a HUGE fan of nibblr snack box, but they recently went out of business, I was so sad, and have been wanting to try other snack boxes to see what they had to offer. I think this snack box is worth it, especially since they lowered their prices on all the boxes! I just think it’s just not the perfect one for me, but I do really enjoy it, and love the variety, and options, especially that they are more healthy, and taste delicious! I also love that a lot of the brands are new to me, so if I like them I can use a coupon, or try and find them in my grocery store. The pricing for the boxes are down below, along with some pictures, and the video review so you can check them out, and see if this snack box is the right option, or not for you! Thanks for reading! :) Happy snacking!

Bzzagent Review for Crest 3D White Daily Cleansing & Whitening System

2Step_1200x1200_FNL

Hi there everyone! I hope you all are doing great, and your week is going well so far! I was lucky enough to receive two bzzagent campaigns! I have been a member of bzzagent for more than 2 years, and literally this was one of the first things or sites for freebies that I ever signed up for along with smiley360, and influenster. If you have never heard of these types of review websites, let me fill you in a little. They are all completely free to sign up for great right? Well you do product reviews, and fill out surveys for a variety of brands, and products, and if you match what the company is looking for then they will send you an offer to review a product with a company that they are working with for reviews, and opinions. Remember, it is completely free, and sometimes you definitely get lucky, just like with anything though, the more involved, and active you are on the website the more offers you will get. It definitely takes effort, and honestly I am just now starting to get offers again, and I haven’t gotten any in months for some reason. I got this opportunity to review, and jumped on it, as I am already a huge fan of crest 3D products, so this was perfect for me! 

Here is more information on the product:

**Crest 3D white: Daily cleansing & whitening system average retails is $15**

*PRODUCT DETAILS*
In the beauty world, powerful things come in two. That’s why there are two steps in the new Crest 3D White Brilliance Daily Cleansing & Whitening System. Step 1 is a Deep Cleaning Toothpaste and Step 2 is Whitening Finisher. Use them together to keep your smile as white as a Professional Polish*.
– Step 1 Deep Cleans
– Step 2 is a Whitening Finisher
– Keeps your smile up to 99% as white as a Professional Polish*
– Each system contains one 4.0 oz. Step 1 tube and one 2.3 oz. Step 2 tube

image7 3 image10 2 image11 2

My Review: 

What a great product, I am so incredibly lucky to have gotten this to review! I knew that I would love it, because I have used the crest 3D products in the past, and have also used the toothpaste booster as well, so this was perfect as it is very easy, and more convenient because they come as a set. It is priced at around $15 in most stores, and in my opinion I feel that it is worth it. This product has some pretty big claims that definitely set the bar as how to how well it was supposed to perform. It claims that it deep cleans, and keeps your smile up to 99% as white as a professional polish. Like I said that’s a big claim, and didn’t know if it would live up to that. There is a 4 step process with this kit, but it’s not difficult to get in the habit of doing it daily, it was easy for me to adapt to, as with anything it works best when you follow the directions, and use the products correctly. The steps will be listed below. I love this kit, and definitely will be purchasing when this one is done, I really do think it works well at whitening, and brightening my smile. I am lucky because I have abnormally white teeth already, due to not drinking coffee, tea, wine, or smoking, yeah right? But this definitely made my pearly whites a few shades brighter, and I am very happy, and loving the results! I definitely think you should give this a try or any of the crest 3D products, as I have tried, and use many of them, and they are all great, and what is better than a white smile? :)

Directions: **2 steps**

STEP 1****

Brush with step 1 for 1 minute to deep clean

Spit (do not rinse)

STEP 2****

Add step 2 keep brushing for 1 minute to whiten

Spit (rinse) 

No makeup time to brush my teeth, and get ready for bed selfie! :)

Tester Tuesday TARTE eye cream & bb cream review!

keep-calm-and-just-test-it-11-600x242

FullSizeRender 11

Hi there lovies! I hope all of you are having a great start to your week! Oh Monday’s I tell ya, I got a bad case of that tonight as I am writing this, and have a super busy week ahead of me already, that’s how life goes though, so it’s all good :) I decided, well I didn’t even think about it to be honest, I picked these 2 from tarte to sample, not even thinking they were both from the same brand, lol, oops, but I really wanted to give these both a try. I have been lazy with my skincare at night lately, I am so exhausted by the end of the day that I just want to go to bed instead of washing my face, and doing the whole routine, bad Renee, bad I know! My poor skin is paying for it, it’s been so hot here, and have the oiliest skin of life right now, so it definitely needs to be taken care of. Anyways, I still have been slacking on my blogging, so thank you for hanging with me while I am so crazy busy, I have so much to catch up on still, it’s nuts! What do you all think of tarte cosmetics? Tarte has always been one of my favorite brands, I can’t help it, love me some tarte! Let’s get right into the reviews! The butterfly background may or may not be a kitchen towel :) Yep I keep it real with you all! Sorry about the late tester Tuesday post last week, I know a lot of you look forward to it being on time, thank you for your support as always! Happy reading this week’s post!

Tarte: BB tinted treatment 12- hour primer $36

s1486752-main-hero-300

What it is:
An innovative BB treatment with multiple skincare and makeup benefits in one eco-chic tube.

What it is formulated to do:
– This state-of-the-art BB cream offers numerous benefits for smooth, youthful-looking skin
– Features SPF 30 sun protection
– Comes in five shades

Indulge your skin with this powerful multitasker that works as a primer, moisturizer, light foundation, antiaging treatment, and sunscreen to give you a youthful-looking glow. Worn alone or as the perfect base for makeup, this 12-hour, age-defying, oil-free primer offers light-to-medium, buildable coverage that helps even skintone and other skin imperfections while diffusing light to minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and pores. The creamy, silky formula goes on smooth and blends easily, leaving you with a natural-looking, flawless finish with a broad-spectrum, chemical-free SPF 30 that offers ideal protection from the sun’s harmful UVA/UVB rays.

My review: 

There seriously isn’t a tarte product that I have tried, and not liked, no joke, it’s crazy! This primer BB cream is fabulous to use on it’s own as a normal BB cream not a primer, I really enjoy it this way. I didn’t love it as a primer though sadly. I actually just remembered that I have tried this over a year ago, when it first came out, I went to the release party at ulta, and the makeup artist tried it on me. I did like it then but didn’t think it was really necessary because she applied the amazonian clay over it, it kind of felt like it was doubling up on face coverage. I felt like it made my foundation very thick, which I normally use, and like full coverage foundation because of my severe acne scars, but this felt like way to much. I think that it’s a good formula but, most likely wouldn’t purchase the full size.

Tarte: Maracuja c- brighter eye treatment: $38

s1486836-main-hero-300

What it is:
An intense, maracuja fruit- and vitamin C-infused, multitasking eye-treatment that visibly hydrates, firms, and brightens the delicate eye-area.

What it does:
Refresh, renew, and recharge tired eyes. This skintuitive™ eye treatment contains rice bran, mango, and coconut, which are naturally rich in antioxidants and help fight signs of aging and free radical damage. Meanwhile, oat sugars instantly smooth and visibly tighten skin. The opthalmologist-tested nutrient-rich formula also delivers the ultimate in hydration for smooth, youthful-looking eyes.

My review:

This eye cream is a good one, I have been testing a lot of new eye creams lately because I have been recently suffering from insomnia, and my eyes definitely are showing that. I am trying to find certain ones for morning, and night that actually work! I seriously hate when eye creams burn the crap out of my eyes, does anyone else have this problem? There is nothing worse then tired, burning eyes! So I was really excited to give this one a try because I love the maracuja oil daily under my moisturizer. I love that this has some natural ingredients, and is actually good for your skin, and under eye area. It is also formulated to make your eyes look smooth, and young. I don’t have crows feet, or many eye wrinkles yet (knock on wood) but my eyes definitely felt energized, and tighter after applying, and all through out the day. This treatment makes my eye puffiness, and tired eyes go away, which is great, it’s also a great pick me up, and makes my eyes look bright, and less tired. I would definitely purchase the full size of this, a little bit goes a very long way with eye cream so it’s great that you don’t need much product for it to really work.

#Betterskinchallenge Maybelline Influenster Voxbox Review

image5 2

Screen Shot 2015-08-18 at 10.43.23 PM

Hey there!! I hope everyone is having a great week so far! I am so sorry about not getting my tester Tuesday blog up earlier, it has been a crazy week, so thanks for hanging in there, I hate when I am late because I loose some of you, because I know you count on that every week at 9 am PST, so I apologize. I am here today to share with you an awesome makeup product that I got for totally free, how you ask? It is from a company called influenster! (If you would like to join, click the badge on my blog, it will take you directly to the website) Okay, so influenster, you may have or have not heard of before is a product review site, it has lots of new products that are launching, and coming to the market! How it works is, they send you products to test, review, try, and share on social media, just like I am doing here :) I was super excited that I was picked for this product launch. I don’t think I have received a voxbox from influenster in over a year, yikes, that’s a long time! Influenster was my very first shot at freebies, and product reviews, a friend posted on her instagram, and that gave me the idea of product reviewing, and blogging, I started my youtube channel, and the blog soon followed, pretty cool story huh? Thanks Jessica :) I saw this friend about a year ago, and told her the story that she started it all, so great! I filled out a survey, and was lucky enough to receive this voxbox which contained the new foundation from maybelline! This new foundation is called better skin. Here are the claims for this foundation, and what it’s supposed to do for your skin. 

BYE- BYE:

SPOTS 

DULLNESS

UNEVENESS

I think this foundation from maybelline was literally made for me, and my skin. This was the perfect shade for me, which I am so thankful that they sent me the right one. It blended, and matched my skin tone perfectly. This foundation I applied with a damp beauty blender, I only had to use 1-2 pumps each application, a little goes a long way with this! I felt like it was good for my skin, truly making my skin healthy, and glow. I couldn’t believe how well it covered up my large pores, and felt so lightweight  on my skin. I had this foundation on for 14 hours the first time I tried it to really give it a good try, to my surprise it lasted ALL DAY! I do want to mention that I always wear foundation primer under my foundation, and I have very severe acne scars, large pores, and oily skin once again, so I have a lot of skin issues going on to deal with. This foundation from maybelline has medium coverage for me, but is buildable, and never looked cakey on me at all. I also always apply powder to set it and reapply it on my t zone areas throughout the day to keep it looking good, staying put, and matte. I think this is a great foundation, and definitely would recommend, and re purchase. It is priced at around $12.99 but you can get it on sale I am sure, for drugstore foundation it’s a good one, and I am very impressed! Thanks for reading, and I did get this product for free from influenster for review purposes! Definitely sign up for influenster, you never know what you could get for free to review! :)

I think my skin looks pretty flawless! (The lighting must have been good that day, it was sunny, lol)
