What’s Inside My BirchBox ! |Review

Who on here is a BirchBox user? This is my second #BirchBox and my very first review on their service. I’m super excited to share my thoughts on this subscription box because I know so many of you are curious about it. I had seen BirchBox’s advertisement on T.V for months and then finally one day, I said to myself, ” I need a subscription box! That way I can try new products out before buying them and see if I like them or not.” I immediately thought of BirchBox and that same night I went online and signed up. Can you believe that for just $10 a month you can score name brand products – small but still – and test them out! As a blogger, this helps eliminate a lot of the guessing game. Will I like this product? Is it worth the investment? As I’m sure you know already, buying makeup, hair and skin products can get expensive very quickly. With BirchBox, I was able to customize my product preferences and based …

The Dynamic Trio

You may or may not know, but I’m obsessed with Honey Girl Organics! In fact, Honey Girl is my go-to brand for all things skincare. A few month ago, they sent me their stick trio, and I instantly fell in love. Their stick trio have been a real game-changer for me, and I just love how it makes my skin feel ❤ The set of three are the perfect travel sized pieces for any girl on the go. It’s one of the reasons why I took it on my trip to Thailand. Whether you’re going on a mini road trip or planning a two-week vacation, the trio sticks will keep your skin looking flawless. What exactly are the trio sticks? The stick trio are meant to nourish and protect your skin from everyday harm while giving you the love and care your skin needs. The trio sticks aim to protect, hydrate and provide a good primer for daily use. When do you use your trio sticks? In the morning, I’ll start by applying the H2GO …

My Skincare Routine | Beauty

Looking to kiss your old skin care products goodbye and say hello to radiant looking skin? Then you’ve come to the right place! I started using Honey Girl about three years ago. Funny story, I came across their products because my mom was using their eye cream and facial toner as her skincare routine. I got a little curious and started using it myself. I fell in love instantly. After that, I kept buying other products and fell even more in love with their skin care line. My skin has never looked or felt better. And although I have to thank my momma for my good skin, I knew I had to take good care of it and protect it. Think about it; we put our skin through a lot; from makeup to pollution in the air, our skin needs all the help it can get. Why not do it with safe products that were MADE to feed and preserve your beautiful skin. While cleaning out my makeup and skincare products, I knew I wanted …

Elyptol

Hello My Beauties, With the flu season around the corner, it’s crucial to keep those hands free & clear of bacteria. I work with people all the time, and germs can be easily transferred through handshakes and dirty surfaces. Let me just say, I get sick often, especially during the fall & winter time; so, it’s critical for me, to keep my hand’s germ-free. I’ve recently started using #Elyptol’s hand sanitizer and it’s one of the best antimicrobial hand gels I’ve tried so far. I’m a strong believer in natural chemicals, that are safe to use, especially for people that have kids. Elyptol just recently won the NEXTY Award for best Natural Living Product! Congrats 😉   I love the packaging it comes with because it already has a built-in key clip. Easily portable and I know I won’t lose it (haha).  Unlike, the other hand gels, this one has a light natural scent to it and the texture is dense. Elyptol also offers a “spray” hand sanitizer, which I love. I take my hand sanitizer spray …

Schwarzkopf Review

People always ask, “Dawn, what type of hair products do you use?” Well, I’m very lucky because I have a sister that’s a hairstylists. 😉 She’s always telling me about all the latest and greatest hair products on the market. Today I wanted to share some of my current favorite products from Schwarzkopf. I teamed up with Schwarzkopf to talk about three of my favorite products. I’ll list all of the products down below with comments telling you why I LOVE these items. Number one has to be Schwarzkopf’s Biotin + Volume. For the longest time, I’ve searched for the perfect product that would give me that extra volume. I’ve tried hairsprays and other texturizing products, but none seem to do the work. After trying the Biotin + Volume, I was in complete shock! This stuff works!! Now I can look like those hair models on Vogue Magazine 😉 How to use it: Lift hair and sprinkle onto the scalp in sections. Just like the dry shampoo, just work in the powder into the roots for instant volume. …
