My Thoughts:

My skin is more supple and soft thanks to the collagen + retinol serum which I do use daily. Also Skyn Island products are amazing for stressed skin PERIOD! The hydro cooling gels work wonders on tired eyes! The Tarte chrome paints are seriously pigmented and give any look life! The Miss spa hydrogel lip treatment leaves my lips feeling moisturized and smooth. Last but not least my brand new baby Fenty match stick one word… BOMB. Stay tuned for a whole post dedicated to my love for Fenty Beauty!

Items were purchased at Ulta, Sephora, and Marshalls.

Brand Spotlight: Tatcha

Stop what you are doing and read this post! My skin is loving Tatcha right now!

Let me give you a little back ground: Tatcha skincare is made in Japan and inspired by beauty secrets of Japanese Geishas. The ingredients in each product are carefully selected and minimally manipulated to be safe and gentle for maximum effectiveness.

I have four different products from Tatcha That have worked wonders on my skin.

  1. Pure one step camellia cleansing oil
  2. Polished classic rice enzyme powder
  3. The water cream
  4. The deep cleanse

The one step camellia cleansing oil is a blend of camellia oil, rice brand oil, red algae, and green tea. It removes everything off your face and leaves you feeling clean, soft, and supple.

The classic rice enzyme powder is an exfoliant, cleanser, and toner in one! It is a water active powder that is a blend of rice and papaya extracts that release debris from your skin to leave you feeling super soft. It is also formulated with pearl which is a natural skin conditioner.

The water cream O.M.G I cannot say enough about this product it has transformed my skincare routine! I LOVE it so much! The water cream is anti-aging, refreshing, and pore-perfecting. The cream releases a burst of skin-improving nutrients to hydrate and prep skin.

The deep cleanse is a clarifying cleanser made with Japanese luffa fruit extract. The deep cleanse lifts impurities, unclogs pores, and balance skin’s moisture for a healthy glow.

Tatcha skincare is formulated without parabens, synthetic fragrances, mineral oil, sulfates, phthalates, DEA, or TEA. They are non-comedogenic, non-irritating, non-sensitizing, and dermatologist tested. In other words GOOD FOR YOUR SKIN!

The packaging in cute and the product is amazing. I cannot say enough good things about these products and this brand!

If you want simplicity in your skincare routine and beautiful skin try Tatcha today.

All products were purchased from Sephora.

Review: Play! By Sephora

Hello hello! Sephora, (my heaven) has a beauty subscription box called Play! By Sephora. I’ve been a subscriber for five months now and I thought I would give you all my thoughts.

The box is $10 a month or $10.80 with tax to be exact. Here’s what you get:

  • A cute draw string bag
  • 5 deluxe skincare, makeup, or haircare samples with a fragrance bonus
  • Play! Book. Which gives you info and tips on the products you just received
  • Play! Pass to redeem for 50 beauty insider points
  • Play! Date for you and a friend to learn how to apply the products in the box
  • Free Shipping!

How Cute! Themed!

Each month has a different theme and the product range is pretty impressive. I have received items from Cover FX, IT Cosmetics, Dior, Marc Jacobs, Too Faced, Makeup Forever, and Smashbox just to name a few. The samples are indeed deluxe, some of the samples I have received I will use quite a while before I need to run to Sephora for a full size!

A few products I’ve gotten

The Play Box is in high demand so subscriptions are not available all the time; you can sign up for Sephora to notify you when a subscription is available.

My thoughts: for 10 bucks a month it’s a way to try new brands and also add variety to your beauty routine. I have been introduced to new brands that I now love and I’ve tried new products from brands I’ve loved and used for a while. I have enjoyed my box each month I’ve gotten it and I don’t see me cancelling anytime soon. What sets it apart from other beauty subscription boxes is that it’s from a brand (Sephora) I trust and love!

Live it. Love it. Style it.

Vision Board: 2018 and Beyond

Hello! I figured what better way to kick off 2018 then with a vision board for the brand new year! Now I’ve never put much stock in vision boards but my mindset and my goals have evolved so much over the last year that I thought a vision board would be a good way for me to keep track of what I’m working toward.

 

vision2018

Now my vision board is a little different. These are more affirmations and encouragements to keep me pushing and going after my goals. Life can get a bit heavy sometimes and we all need a reminder of not only what we’re striving for but how great we are! Can I get an Amen!?

My vision board can and probably will transcend past 2018 which is why I wrote 2018 and beyond.

Do you have a vision board? What’s on your board?

Live it. Love it. Visualize it.

 

 

Mini Mascaras

I think mini mascaras are the best thing that ever happened to the world! Ok a little dramatic but they are pretty awesome.

Pros:

  • Try it first! For more expensive mascaras it is really nice to be able to purchase a mini size for less and try it out to see if you want to purchase the full size.
  • Travel– Duh.
  • For those of us who don’t go through a tube of mascara in a month the mini size is perfect so you aren’t tossing half a tube of mascara at the three month mark.
  • If you don’t like it you didn’t waste 20 bucks or more on a full size.
  • Cuteness!!!!

Cons:

  • Really? After those pros how could you have cons?

Makeup chains like Sephora and Ulta are getting really awesome about selling “to go” mini products or offering deluxe samples as a part of a gift with purchase or rewards program.

I Have to Have it: New Series

I Have to Have it, is going to be a new series for the blog. These posts will be up once a week. The purpose of this series is to take a particular brand (mostly makeup brands) and do a review on the brand and the products.

Most people do research before they go out and buy products so this is another avenue for you all to gain exposure to different brands you may have been thinking about trying. These posts will be mostly higher end brands because people definitely want to know if it is worth the money. ENJOY!
