I'm an an energetic person who enjoys trying new products! I have subscribed to a few monthly subscription beauty boxes and feel that most "fall short" of what many consumers are seeking. I'd like to be a "voice" for others like myself who are always on the hunt for the latest and most effective products to make the "aging" process a bit more graceful without taking the easy route of unnecessary surgeries. I'm "not" a vain person by any means; however, I feel that everyone should try to do the best with their features and beauty products help greatly! I feel that I've aged "fairly" well, despite being an AZ native with the constant exposure of the harmful sun. I suffer from very dry skin and some "not so friendly" lines and wrinkles. I am also on the hunt to find products that can address some of those very specific needs. And for the record, the hunt is still going strong; although, I am discovering many brands that I otherwise may not have considered. I LOVE beauty products and am not shy about sharing should I "someday" find that fountain of youth, ha! I use all beauty, makeup and body products in hopes of enhancing what God has given me to work with. That's about it! I'm outgoing and determined to do what I can to look my best. Thanks!!!
This purchase was perhaps my best purchase in 2018! In fact, I purchased several, some for gift giving. It’s a perfect way to store your Beauty Blender! Not much more to say than to let you know how wonderful it works and would definitely make for easier travel! The holes help to dry it out more quickly!! Love this little guy;-)!!!!Beauty Blender Blender Defender Protective Carrying Case
This is perhaps one of my favorite Gucci scents. Although, the fragrance has long lasting power, I’m old school and love to layer my scent with it’s corresponding lotion. The lotion is very hard to find; however, I did manage to get a LE combo at Sephora with both, the fragrance and the lotion at a decent price. I think this set is still in stock, but possibly just until it sells out. It’s a light, beautiful scent and I do highly recommend it;-)!! Forgot to mention...this set comes with 1.6 oz of fragrance and 3.3 oz of lotion.
I generally get my fingernails done on a regular basis at the salon, but do frequent pedicures on my toenails. Well, toenails need a bit more aggressive filing, so these Revlon files handle the tough job;-)! Highly recommend!!
I have been using this nail polish remover for as long as I was old enough to paint my nails! I prefer this one over some of the other Cutex removers because it’s more gentle. I think it has less acetone in it, but not too sure? It smells great and feels less flammable than the regular, ha;-)!
This is the solar cuticle oil I’ve been using for years. I purchase it at the salon, not sure if it’s available at a normal retail shop? It’s great, effective, no scent, and works beautifully! Truly, my go to in addition to NCLA!
I’ve been fortunate enough to receive several variations of this cuticle oil in my monthly sub boxes and I really like it. I’m not much of a fan of scented cuticle oil, but it works great, so I enjoy the product regardless!
I’ve been using this product for about 3-4 weeks so I could give the best review possible. With skincare that alleges to improve comfort and resilience, one must diligently use it for a period of time. First impression, it is creamy, not like whipped; in fact, it’s very thick, so a small amount is best to help it absorb. I found that using a lighter amount was better, too much product made it difficult to absorb. It smells lovely, soft and spa like, but not overpowering at all. It performs well as a moisturizer, but so thick, like a paste or mask, and was greasy making it very uncomfortable on my skin. I also use serums at night and found that this cream interfered greatly with my serums. After applying my serums, I had to wait a few minutes before I could top my nighttime routine off with this moisturizer when my face was completely dry. It is so thick that it felt like it sat on my skin throughout the entire night and still there when I got up? It is marketed as a moisturizer, but seriously, performed like a mask? I am truly perplexed as to “why” it’s so thick? I need to be fair, honest, and unbiased with my review, so my sincere apologies! I am done using it; although, still have remaining cream. I don’t like to waste, so will use up what’s remaining for excessive dry patches; such as, elbows, knees and possibly body after too much AZ sun. Again, as far as the claims of comfort and resilience, I did not notice any changes in my skin to support that claim. I did; however, notice a greater, “excessive” level of hydration in my skin, but not in a positive way? For me personally, I think it’s a great moisturizer for someone on a budget, but I still prefer my “other” skincare items that cost more and perform with better long term benefits. I did receive this complimentary from Influenster for review, but feel I still need to be as honest as I can. I gave it 2 stars because it IS a great moisturizer and/or mask, and the price point is very affordable for someone on a budget. For long term skin appearance, I feel it fell very short for me other than great hydration. Thank you for the opportunity to test this line, it’s been a great experience.

It smells lovely, soft and spa like, but not overpowering at all. It performs great under makeup, again, a small amount goes a long way. If you use too much, it can interfere with primer, a small amount is all you need. As far as the firming and increased elasticity, I did not notice any changes in my skin to support that claim. I did; however, notice a greater hydration in my skin throughout the day and overall.

This is an “after” photo using L’Oréal Age Perfect Hydro-Nutrition Honey Eye gel. I’ve been using it for at least a week now and as seen in photo, it does very little to de puff my eyes. I LOVE the applicator, it’s soothing and cooling, but falls flat from there. I struggle with puffy eyes every morning and wanted this to work; sadly, it doesn’t for me:/ I received this courtesy for review from Influenster and L’Oréal in addition to a few other products. The verdict is still out on the other 2 products that I received for review, but, so far, I’m liking the other 2 items a lot!
