April Beauty Favorites !

First I wanna say I wish I could be more consistent in blogging for you guys , but time & my schedule haven't been going hand in hand lately .However I thought since I had this cold windy day off I would share my favorites with you, beware I have a lot since I think the last time I shared my favorites was Nov of 2013 , so please grab a snack and drink and let get started !

1.Herbal Essences Bombshell Babe Blowout Smooth Creme($3.99)-Back when I hate Herbal Essences products, they didn't do anything to my hair but way my hair down, until they came out with all these new products. Herbal Essences Bombshell Babe Blowout Smooth Creme is amazing I cant get enough of it , this is the prefect item to banish frizz and give your hair that prefect smooth look you want .This product give to the best blowout , that prefect smoothness & doesn't leave my hair greasy or tacky OH and did I forget to mention the scent is amazing , smell like a burst of locus flowers .

2.Jergens Natural Glow ($7.99)-As most of you know Im one of the most pastiest/palest people out there , I don't tan at all I actually burn like a lobster and who want to look like that .  Most self tanners I don't use and steer faraway from since they either make you look orange & streaky or just are way to pricy to try for a self tanner , so I went and bought this item on a whim for my face ,neck & chest area to give to a little color/glow , however I wasnt hoping for much since I thought when I woke up the next morning my face would be orange and I wouldn't be able to go out in public , however I was wrong . This product did everything I needed it to do Jergens Natural Glow Revitalizing Daily Moisturizer gives your skin a natural-looking summer glow. Effective moisturizers help it keep your skin hydrated all day long. The Jergens daily moisturizer combines antioxidants and Vitamin E to keep your skin looking healthy, while collagen and elastin improve your skin's elasticity. Regular use of this moisturizer leaves your skin smooth and supple. 

3. Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo ($3.99)-Ive always been on the fence about dry shampoo , I always thought they didnt work and I would just rather wash my hair daily. I thought most dry shampoos I have tried made my hair feel greasier , dirty and dry , however that because I couldn't find that right one for my hair. This formula absorbs oil and rejuvenates dirty hair for a clean feeling. invigorate your strands with the scent of white grapefruit and mint and feel naturally beautiful without parabens or dyes. 

4. Renpure Original Brazilian Keratin Straightening Shampoo & Conditioner ($4.99 each)-LOVE LOVE LOVE these 2 items together. This blend of ingredients includes coconut oil that has a tiny molecular structure that absorbs deep into the hair reducing friction and breakage during shampooing. The keratin protein helps repair damage & restore strength while shea oil conditions & smooths the hair cuticle layer.  The coconut oil has a tiny molecular structure that easily absorbs into the hair smoothing the cuticle layer adding softness & shine while shea oil conditions dry damaged areas and protects from heated styling products & UV rays. The result is beautiful, straight, silky-smooth hair.

5. Loreal True Match Super Blendable Foundation ($7.99)- Normally most foundation are to warm for me , or don't work well with my oily skin however I have heard a million and one things about this foundation , well come to find out I only thought this foundation came the normal foundation shades like most drugstore companies, come to find out that this line of foundation come in a naturals, warm & cool shade range . This foundation is my new favorite , it oily free, long-wearing , blend-able and come in a million different shades for every skin type , plus it super affordable.

6. bareMinerals Collector's Edition Deluxe Size Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 ($39.50)-I love setting my makeup with the with this Bare Minerals foundation. A little goes a long way and it really makes such a dramatic difference.It leave your skin looking flawless, it lightweight , matte finish and blend amazing into the skin. I'm love with it and I don't ever think I'll find a similar product that is as good.

7. Makeup Forever Full Cover Concealer ($32.00)- An ultra long-lasting, matte finish, oil-free, waterproof, full coverage concealer.his light and creamy concealer contains a high concentration of pigments that stay put, making it perfect for use on the face. I enjoy this concealer it give me that little extra coverage were I need it without making my skin feel cakey or powdery . This concealer is very buildable and apply evenly if you need a little more coverage then normal .

8.Buxom Full-On  Lip Cream in White Russian ($19.00)-No shimmer or glimmer—just creamy, glass-smooth gloss, decadent color, intoxicating shine, and famous tingle for a gentle plumping effect. OMG I cant get enough of these , I wanna keep reapplying these glosses cause i just love the lay they feel on the lips and I actually like the texture , they do feel a tad tacky but it goes away.I cant wait to buy the others.

9. Queen Helene Olive Oil Masque ($3.99)-If you have followed my blog from the start you probably know I'm facial mask hoarder. I have very oily skin normally however I have been using some product that have salicylic acid in them just to clear up my, on the down side of that my skin has become very dry around my chin , eye area around my nose/ mouth area. I recently got the chance to try this mask think that it really would make a different on my skin since I have oily skin and this mask was made for extremely dry skin , however it worked wonders on my skin . This mask is a very creamy deeply relaxing masks that give your skin alot of moisture and hydration from the olive oil , it leave your skin feeling so soft , smooth and clean plus the cooling affect the mask offers really gives your skin a relaxing mini facial.

10.Loreal Blow Dry It Blow Out Spray($3.99)-LOVE LOVE LOVE this product . I have very thick hair that normally has volume too it already but since my hair is so heavy the volume doesn't last very long after I style it ! This doesn't magic on my hair , I apply it after i blow dry my hair and they I blow my hair for about 1-2 mins and really get that blow out effect and man does it look awesome , this product doesn't leave your hair white since it is a dry shampoo ,doesn't make your hair feel chalky and dry , overall this is a miracle in a aerosol can.
11.Formula 10.0.6 Get Your Glow On Peel Off Mask ( $5.99)-Formula 10.0.6 Get Your Glow On Brightening Peel Off Mask. This radiance boosting peel revitalizes tired skin in minutes. Smooth on, sit tight then peel off to remove dead skin cells, unclog pores and banish breakouts. Powerful Papaya helps to resurface skin while citrus boosts brightness so you can flaunt a mesmerizingly clear, smooth and radiant complexion. I was pumped to try this mask , I love peel off masque I love when you peel it away and see all the junk that was all up in your skin , GROSS I know  but let be honest it true , bottom line is  I love it, easy to apply, comes off in one sheet, skin looks bright and clean and feel so soft after you take the mask off !! 
12.Milani Baked Blush In Luminoso ($6.99)-Were do I start with Milani blushes , I love them all I own the all but for some reason I always gravitate toward this one , for a long time I didnt use it just because I had so many other to use and didnt want to use it for winter , you get the point . However I was digging in my blush drawer and picked it up and ever since have been  using it and loving it . Keeping this simple and short if you like peach pinky blushes run and grab this one because it going to be one of your favorites for life !
 13.Studio Gear Cosmetic Pressed Powder Matte Bronze ($25.00)-Bronze Matte is a powder bronzer in compact form that provides an natural sunny glow to the skin. Kaolin helps to absorb surface oils and shine to keep the glow going day and night. Bronzer are something I only use in the summer when I have a tan ,cause Im pretty pale so bronzer don't match me at all unless they are super light with is rare . Recently I have been contouring and just warming up my skin with this bronzer , it does look dark in the pan and can be very dark and pigmented if you might use a heavy hand  or to much product , however this is a great bronzer for contouring it the prefect shade, not to orange/brown plus it matte and long-wear . I'm glad I rediscovered this product in my collection.
14.Prestige Eyeshadow In Golden Sun ($3.99)- Prestige is a brand I don't use often use since it hard to find in my area ,but I was looking for a face highlighter and thought hmmm I use this for a brow highlight and adore it why not try it on the face ! This gave me the perfect natural glow , just with a super light hand fluffy brush this gave me the best glow. 
These products were bought with my on money for review, However, this is my own!

I received this product in exchange for my honest review, however I have tried a million and one facial mask and for some reason this one wasn't a winner for me , or maybe it just wasn't working for my skin type which is extremely oily . The product itself  has no scent  and is a thick muddy jelly consistence which feels cold when applying to your skin . The  mask did apply nicely to the skin and dries within 10 mins  after apply . Why I didnt like this product , this masks works great if you need to clean out your pores and overall want your skin to feel clean and smooth which it work great at, what I didnt like about it was it made my skin very red and itchy after I used it leaving me with red bumps on my jaw line and chin area , Im not sure why I would break out from this since it is natural , but everyone since react different . I do enjoy other products by this company and will continue to try others .

Insta Natural Retinol Moisturizer with Vitamin C Review

I received the following products in exchange for my honest review via Insta Natural.. I have been using InstaNatural products for a few weeks now and it has quickly grown to be one of my favorites & plan to look for more product by this brand . If you are looking for a brand that is natural and using organic products which are all great and benefit your skin this might be a brand you wanna RAN and try out plus you get a ton of product for your money , this isnt a brand that you get a small vial of oil or cream for 85 dollars you honestly get a ton of product for a pricy point you would pay at the drugstore . Cant complain about that now can we !

 About The Product ...
InstaNatural’s Retinol Moisturizer contains a robust formula of handpicked ingredients designed to transform older, damaged skin into a healthier and youthful appearance. Retinol is a powerful antioxidant derived from Vitamin A, one of the strongest and most trusted ingredients for anti-aging skin care. Once absorbed, Retinol is converted into Retinoic Acid, which starts working to help restore skin and diminish the appearance of sun damage and signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, hyperpigmentation, rough texture, and more. Vitamin C – another powerful antioxidant – works synergistically to aid in this process of battling early signs of aging, as well as repairing existing damage to promote healthier skin. Simultaneously, Hyaluronic Acid, Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter and Green Tea deliver premium nourishment and hydration to keep your skin moisturized.

This intensive moisturizing cream is the perfect addition to your regimen to restore and renew firmness, elasticity and thickness of the skin for a flawless and radiant complexion.

Key Ingredient /  How It Benefits Your Skin
 Retinol ( 2.5%)-Retinoids minimize the appearance of wrinkles, bolster skin's thickness and elasticity, slow the breakdown of collagen (which helps keep skin firm), and lighten brown spots caused by sun exposure.
  Vitamin C-Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is key to the production of collagen, a protein that aids in the growth of cells and blood vessels and gives skin its firmness and strength

  Hyaluronic Acid-
First off, don’t let the word “acid” fool you. Hyaluronic acid isn’t harsh or skin-stripping at all. In fact, it’s the exact opposite—a powerful humectant (aka moisture-binding ingredient) that keeps skin plump and hydrated and, yes, young-looking

 Jojoba Oil-As with most oils, jojoba improves dryness and skin texture, adding a nice, smooth glow.
Shea Butter-Shea butter, which is extracted from the nut of the African shea tree, is a rich, cream-colored substance that has natural soothing and moisturizing properties. 
Green Tea -Green tea contains catechins, which are anti-bacterial agents that suppress acne-causing bacteria and help regulate hormonal imbalances. It also possesses potent anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce the redness

When it come to moisturizer I look for ones that our thick in texture , my personal thought I like a thick moisturizer because I feel like it actually working on my soaks in my skin better and just does the job all day long  anyways on with the product . This moisturizer is a semi thick white cream texture it doesnt really have a scent beside that normal clean fresh scent of the natural product , it does soak into your skin super fast leaving you with kinda a dewy glow finish but no oily residue . 

My skin type is oily so I literally always have a problem with product making me even more oilier then I already am , however this moisturizer didn't even make me oily , i felt like it keep the oil at bay. This is up there on the charts in my book as one of the best , I love that it has retinol , vitamin e and my two favorite in it shea butter & jojoba oil , anyways I have been using this for about a week and half and my skin feels and looks great , my skin look super even , smooth and less red , I cant really say it helps wrinkles since I dont have them really but that doesn't mean it not help against them. This moisturizer work well alone , I use it twice a day ( morning & night) or with makeup , it actually make my makeup apply so much smoother since my skin is being smoothed out by this product and leaving a great canvas. If you need a good hydrating moisturizer with the benefit of super high end product benefits, try this your going to be n cloud 9 once you see you see your skin change .
Price- $24.75 USD

What I Received  ( DEC Boxy Charm)..
Coastal Scents Revealed Palette (Full Size) 
Eyelashi Mink Lashes (Full Size)
Mistura Beauty Solutions Retractable Beauty Brush (Full Size)
Be A Bombshell Lip Product ( Full Size)
Eva NYC Hair Product ( Travel Size)   


Coastal Scents Revealed Palette ( $20.00)-As much as I wanna be in love with this palette I cant be , all I can think of is how many palette can be out there that contain metallic and nude shades. Overall this is a great palette , the colors are very pigmented , long lasting and a few are matte , however I feel that a lot of these colors are dupes too shades in the naked palettes. If you are looking for a palette that has a lot of dupes in it from other palettes and still looking for the quality of higher end products I suggest to get your hand of this items.
Eyelashi Mink Lashes In Trendsetter ( $29.00) -I knew these lashes were love at first site , I couldn't be more excited to try them out, cause this girl is all about full lashes . I am really impressed with these lashes , these lashes are made from real fur which is collected cruelty-free and can be worn up to 40 times plus they are super comfortable to wear ! If you are looking for drama , volume and fun sassy lashes , you need these in your life.
Mistura Beauty Solutions Retractable Beauty Brush ( $19.00)- Ive never been a fan of retractable brushes , honestly I feel most of them are super cheap feeling/looking and the bristle are normally pretty pointing and just don't provide a good application when applying product to your face . On with my thought , I actually like this brush , it a ultra-soft synthetic-hair bristles that get the job done and easy to take with you when traveling or just a good brush to have to throw in your bag and just have it when you need it , only thing I had a issue with , was my brush is super smelling not sure if that how they all are or not , but eve after I few washes it still smelled of chemicals :( ! 

Be A Bombshell Lip Gloss In Saucy ($14.00)-We are just gonna jump right into this one . I love Be A Bombshell product and have many of these lippies and they are high on top of my favorites, they  are such a great lip gloss ,  super pigmented , highly glossy and long lasting  , what more can you ask for ?
Eva NYC Hungry Hair Oil Treatment($12.00)- I really enjoyed this product , normally I'm not a fan of oils since I have very thick , heavy and curly hair  , oil really make my hair look like a greasy mess so I generally avoid them , however I enjoyed  this oil for a heat protector , it work great for flat ironing/ blow drying my hair , it left a shinny look to my hair but no oil residue , which I was super surprised about , over all I will continue to use this for my hair
I really enjoyed Boxy Charm, This subscription has been on top of my list to try , so I was so excited when I was able to try in out from BrandBacker ! Overall Im really pleased with this box ,you get a lot of great items for a faction on the price , so it make it worth it . The only issue I had with this and I cant really blame anyone , but my Boxy Charm was pretty beat up when I received it  , even after contacting Brandbacker about it no one responded back , however I did have a open product of oil in my box & a beat up palette , this would be my own downfall , despite that I would try Boxy Charm again since I did enjoy what I received.
