Soap and Glory

 Hey Everyone!

 So I picked up this Soap and Glory  Small Wonders gift set at Shoppers Drug Mart the other day and I wanted to share it with you guys. It was $20 and you get 4 good try me sized products, a pink scrubby, and a beautiful box. This would make an amazing Christmas gift or just pick one up for yourself.

Let's start with the box! It's made from cardboard but it's pretty durable and it's not flimsy as all. The colours are bright and it really is just a stand out. I would just add a bow and give it to someone.

The Products:

Hand Food Hand Cream

 This is Soap and Glory's biggest seller! With macadamia oil, shea butter and marshmallow this is the most nourishing hand cream I have ever used. It seems so think when you get it out of the tube but as soon as you start rubbing it into your hands it just disappears. It absorbs into your skin leaving your hands feeling completely moisturized. 

The Righteous Body Butter

 This is n award winning product and that doesn't surprise me at all! This product also contains shea but also has aloe vera in it. It leaves your skin feeling silky smooth. Use right after a bath or shower on damp skin.

The Scrub Of Your Life

 I think the thing I love the most abut this scrub is that it foams up so you don't feel like your scratching your skin. It has these pink coloured beads as well as little micro-beads that look like sugar that get the exfoliating job done but doesn't leave your skin feeling overly dry. 

Clean On Me

 This is the only product I haven't tried yet but they describe it as a creamy clarifying shower gel. It has mandarin peel extract and a built in body lotion.

The Pink Scrubby!

I think this set is such a great way to get to know the brand as well as see how you like it. The one thing I like best about Soap and Glory is that they keep the scent the same in all the products in the same lie, that way you don't end up layering on too many different scents. LOVE IT!

Hope you all are having a fantastic holiday!

Want Smooth Lips?

Hey Everyone!

 So as most of you know I have dry to normal skin but once winter hits it becomes very dry and my lips take a beating! They crack and flake like crazy which drives me nuts, but I have found a fix. For months I have had 4 EOS lip balms sitting in a cup on my makeup desk and I was paying no attention to them but the other day I reached for one put it on and instantly fell in love with these AGAIN.

 EOS has so many different flavors and types of these lip blame that it is easy to get confused so here is the break down.

There are 4 regular line normal formula choices (Pomegranate Raspberry is limited and I can't find it any where!) and these are the basics. They are 95% Organic and 100% Natural, they have vitamin E, shea but term and jojoba oil.

Summer Fruit

Strawberry Sorbet

Honeysuckle Honeydew

Sweet Mint

My hands down favorites are Sweet Mint and Strawberry Sorbet!

Then there is Lemon Drop which is the same as the above but also has SPF 15 in it so this is my favorite to use in the summer.

Medicated Tangerine is my favorite at the moment, I don't go to bed at night without applying this to my lips. It's formulated with Zinc which helps heal cracked lips and keeps them moisturized all night or day! I have notice a real difference in my lips from the momment I started using this one.

Now for the next three I have been told these are very hard to get your hands on. Yes I'm talking about the limited edition Disney inspired by Alice and Wonderland trio. You get Blueberry Potion, Sweet Vanilla Nonsense, and Watermelon Wonderland. They even have the cute Mickey imprinted on the side!

I know I know at this point your think I have an addiction to EOS and your probably right. I love these lip balms and they are a great price for the size you get. Their quality is amazing and I love the way they smell and how that smells stays on your lips but doesn't annoyed your nose. EOS knocks it out of the park with their lip blame and I suggest everyone goes and try at least one!

Here's the video and  GIVEAWAY!

GT Boxes October

Hey Everyone!

 When I started opening this Topbox tube I was disappointed because I thought we had only received 3 samples but as I started opening the pieces of paper I found the coolest thing I think I've ever seen!

 Let's start with Stila because we got two products from them the first one was a Stila Lip Glaze in the color Raspberry  The formula of these are very nice and not overly sticky and it smells very sweet. This sample is about half of a full size product.

The next product is probably the coolest thing ever. This is NEW Stila Palette in the color In The Moment and these colors are AMAZING! This is a great way to try a whole palette and decide if you like the colors and will get use out of them. I have to say that I love all the colors in this palette and the purples are to die for!

Have you heard of MaskerAide? I hadn't but now that I have I'm defiantly going to be picking up more of these. It's a hydrating facial sheet and they come in several different types, I got the Detox Diva and used the other night for about 20 mins. The next day my skin felt so amazing and I was like why is my skin so soft? Then I remembered that I had used this product!

And last but not least was Endocare which is a product that can with Ampoules and a Tensage Radiance Contour cream. These products are meant to rejuvenate the skin and the cream is to correct and brighten the  eye contour area.

This is another great Topbox Tube and as far as monthly subscription go Topbox is one of the best!

Now on to Glymm because in all honesty this month Glymm was really good which really surprised me. As far as Glymm goes every month you get some ok stuff but for the most part it's just a bunch of ok stuff , this month I feel like they really kicked it up a notch.

The first product I got was these two sample from Cyberderm which we have received in a Glymm box before but they seem to have changed the packaging. When I got these samples the first time they came in these plastic tubes that were shaped like a liquid medicine dispenser and while I thought they looked cool they were very unpractical to use and store. I like the tubes they came in this time much better. The product itself is ok, I don't like the one with sunscreen in it cause it has that very strong small but the H2O hydrating one is AMAZING!

This is a Femme Couture mascara and I HATE IT! It's a full sized sample and so it got points for Glymm for being in the box but the product itself is awful! It's such a wet formula and the bristles are so small that when you pull the wand out you can't see the bristles because the product is covering them up. AWFUL!

These came to use with the mascara and even though I won't be using that, I will be using these! So how you use the card is you place it over your eye and then put your mascara on. They help with smudging and prevent any mascara from getting onto the eyelid.

So it looks like Glymm is going to be starting a new service called Glymm MaMa and while I love the idea I would have loved it a lot more last year when I was pregnant. Either way they sent us baby oil which is ok.

September Glossy Box

Hey Everyone!

So I was so in LOVE with my September Glossy Box! It had 2 amazing full sized products and then 2 awesome sized samples and 1 smaller sized sample. I love how for the most part Glossy Box always seems to get a makeup product in our boxes, which to me is the reason I get beauty boxes so I appreciate that! 

The first product we got was a full sized Wella Mirror Polish Shine Serum. This product can be used before you style or after to help smooth and also give your hair a nice high-gloss finish. I've used this product a few times and I love the way it gives my hair a shine without making it feel oily and it has an amazing scent!

Next we got two B. Kamins products but neither of them were full sized and that is probably my only complaint about my box this month. It would have been great to get a trail size of the body lotion and a full size of the lip balm. As far as the products go the body lotion takes to long to soak into the skin for me. The lip balm is nice but it leaves my lips feeling oily so I've started using this at night before bed and I like it! I can go to sleep and wake up and my lips still feel like there is balm on them.

Dove Cleartone is my new go to pitstick, this stuff is amazing! It smells really good and I've been using mine for about 3 weeks and I notice a real difference with the color in my underarm areas. It's like an exfoliator for your armpits, it's AMAZING!

The last thing the we got this month was the NYX The Crimson Amulet which was a Limited Edition product. In all honesty they could have just sent me this and that would have been enough.

This collection comes with so much stuff it's mind blowing! It has 24 eye shadows and for the most part they are all very pigmented and easy to blend. In this collection there are a good mix of mattes and shimmers. With this one box you can do so many eye looks I don't think you'll ever get tired of it!

And if the eye shadows weren't enough there are 5 blushes, 1 highlighter and 4 lip colors, WOW. It also has a HD eye primer and an eyeliner. There are 2 matte blushes and 3 shimmery blushes and the highlighter isn't over the top which is nice. It's adds a nice shimmer without being glittery. 

All in all this was once again an AMAZING box! I type that so much I kind of get sick reading it but in all honesty Glossy Box always seems to blow my mind. Month after month they keep things fresh, provide great smaples, and it's always worth the price we pay for it.
