New Year Drug Store Haul!

So New Year, why not start it off right with a little something for myself? They had so many discounts at my CVS that I couldn’t help but buy up!

I definitely had to get some of the star wars collection from Covergirl since I am such a fan, and yes I know I technically purchased two of the same mascara (one is waterproof!!!!) but I really don’t care.

I also want to start doing my nails more so I bought some much needed products from ORLY.

Also this is the only drugstore in my area that carries MUA cosmetics. I can’t usually find MUA anywhere so when I saw that set on sale I snatched it up!

Sample Sunday VI

Keratase

So I’m trying to keep my hair healthy as well as add volume. Today’s Sample Sunday is L’oreal Paris Kerastase Elixir K Ultime.

I’m not sure when or how I got this little sample but I’m glad I did. I applied the product after the shower and brushed my hair with a Boar bristle Brush to work the oil through my hair evenly.

This definitely works!

My Hair felt so soft and manageable that when I ran out (about 3 uses) I almost purchased more right away.

I most likely will purchase more when my other samples run out.

Sample Sunday V

schwarzkopf essence ultime

Today’s Sunday sample is Schwarzkopf Essence Ultime Shampoo and Conditioner. I believe I got the shampoo and conditioner for a Walmart Beauty Box. I recently ran out of my usual product so I decided to try this out before purchasing more. The Sample had a surprising amount of product in them that it lasted a whole week and more to my surprise. After every use it made my hair feel clean and soft, however towards the end of the sample life the ends of my hair felt slightly brittle so I think it may have dried them a bit.

The chemical smell of the shampoo and conditioner did not bother me, but if you have a sensitive nose this is not for you. I am not going to be purchasing the full size and just will be sticking to my usual product.

Sample Sunday IV

Beauty Friends II

The Cold weather tends to dry my face out, so sheet masks tend to help a lot. Plus they make your selfies funny.

Anyway this Sunday I’m sharing with you Beauty Friends Kiwi Sheet mask. This mask is suppose to make skin smooth and soft while cleaning and moisturizing. I received this from my August Mask Maven bag.

I loved using this, my skin felt so soft! The one gripe I had about the Kiwi sheet mask was the smell. To me it smelled like dirt and it bothered me so much!

I have so many masks to use that I am not sure if I will purchase this mask again or not.

Any masks your loving lately?

Let it Grow! Not Your Mother’s shampoo and conditioner

Not your mothers shampoo and conditioner

So Today I want to talk about a new shampoo and conditioner I’m using. Not Your Mother’s Way to grow Long and Strong Shampoo and Condtioner (Wow That’s a lot of words). I picked it up recently because I’m trying to grow out my hair while not sacrificing the quality of my hair.

Not Your Mother’s Way to Grow Long and strong shampoo and conditioner promises to make your hair stronger, healthier and longer.

So my hair does feel strong and healthy however, is my hair longer? Eh, most likely not, at least I don’t see a bog difference in length. I really like the smell of this stuff and even my husband compliments the smell. however, The one thing that bothers me is I feel like this stuff runs out quick. Maybe I’m just using too much?

Anyway,  I do recommend this product for anyone that needs a shampoo to strengthen their hair.

Sample Sunday III

Caudalie instant detox mask

So every Sunday night I like to do what I call ‘Facial Fun Time’. On this day I like to use new face and hair products and just give my face that bit of extra boost for the week to come.

This past sunday I used my sample of Caudalie Instant Detox Mask. I’ve never used any Caudalie products before so I had no high or low expectation going in. The sample was a bit tiny but theres a surprisingly large amount of product, you can easily get a least two uses from it.

The Mask spread easily and you only need a thin layer on your face. It takes about 10 minutes to dry. When I put it on I felt a tingling sensation right away. It was not painful but just felt weird. I took it to mean it was working and my face just really needed it. (may have been a mistake)

I noticed it did not dry evenly, not sure why that is. It was also surprisingly dificult to clean off my face. I used warm water and a clean wash cloth. I had to go over my face several times before I got the mask completely off.

My skin is very sensative and when I was dome getting the mask off,  my face was very red and irritated.

So it’s safe to say this is not recommended for sensitive skin, and because of that I will not be purchasing the fill size.

Stuff I don’t have money for, but still think I need. AKA Wishlist

Hey Kittens!

So I’m broke as everyone knows, but it’s the holiday season and although I’m not buying doesn’t mean I can’ ‘Window shop’. So here’s a list of things I can’t afford but I want anyway. Read more

ELF Prism Eyeshadow Palette

Hey kittens!

Today I have another ELF product to review. Prisim Eye-shadow Palette in Sunset. I have a couple of ELF shadows and I have yet to be disappointed with any of them.The Prism palette is a bit smaller than most palettes I own, with six colors ranging from a soft pink to a lovely purple this palette does encompass the colors one would find in a sunset

Sample Sunday II

Hey Kittens,

Another Sunday, another sample. Today’s sample is Dove Go Fresh Revitalize Body Wash. I got this sample from a Beauty Box 5.

Dove Body Wash

This wash is Mandarin & Tiare flower scent which I love. This wash claims to give softer, smoother skin after one shower, and yes my skin did feel really soft. However, I did not get that squeaky clean feeling I usually get after a shower. I usually like using exfoliating scrubs and this was far from it.

The Soap was a creamy texture and I will admit it would be very good for someone who suffers from dry skin or really good in the winter. I would be buying the fulll size but I wouldn’t discount it out.

Sample Sunday I

Hey Kittens,
So I’ve seen quite a few bloggers do this and I was intrigued by the idea so I thought Why not? I have so many samples I’ve gotten that it seems like a shame that I don’t share my experiences of actually using the samples, especially if I purchase the product afterwards.

Hey Honey Mask

Today’s samples is HEY HONEY take it off exfoliating honey peel off mask. I’m not normally a big fan of honey (It’s sticky and tends to get everywhere) but I am such a big fan of peel off masks. The size sample I got was enough for 2-3 uses.

Hey Honey peel off mask was easy to use, it spread easily across my face and didn’t goop everywhere like some masks I’ve had before. It dried evenly which was great and it also peeled off really well. Be careful not to get any product in your eyebrows or in your hair as it was super tough to get out .

As well as going on well, it made my skin feel so soft and clean. I am totally going to get the full size as soon as I run out of my current peel off mask.
