For the past few years, there is always one box under the Christmas tree from me to my little sister that she instantly looks for, finds, and shakes to hear for rattling. If she hears the rattling, then she already knows its my annual gift to her…a box filled with makeup!
She loves makeup! So, I always try and give her a box of various makeup and brushes. I tend to put in about 50 pieces of makeup, brushes/applicators, and maybe a cosmetic bag in the box and all of it comes from E.L.F!
In case you are living under a drab rock, E.L.F is a cosmetic line that got its fame and glory by offering high quality makeup for a $1. Now, they still have $1 makeup, but they have grown over the years to offer other items that are just a couple bucks more, but still great quality. Actually, E.L.F’s affordable makeup and wide selection is what gave me the idea to create this little annual gift and I love that my sister looks for it every year and this year will be no exception.
E.L.F. is currently offering a Buy 1 get the second half off promotion. Needless to say this is just the right time for me to gather up the items I want to add to this year’s beauty box for my sister. Time to go order $75 worth of E.L.F cosmetics, because $75 equals FREE SHIPPING which are my favorite words this time of year!
This is for all my Facebookers! Finish that fight in Sorority Life and leave your restuaraunt in Cafe’ World for a brief minute and become a fan of Clarins. Why? Clarins will be offering a very EXCLUSIVE and fabulous treat for their loyal Facebook fans. They will annouce the winners on November 9th.
In order to win, you need to become a fan by this Sunday, November 8th. I’m already a fan, because I was trying to win a Clarins brush a couple of months ago. (I didn’t win.) However, I’m keeping my fingers crossed and I can’t wait to see what this exclusive treat is, but I’m sure since its Clarins its going to be great!
We all have things items we load up on beit beauty products, home goods, or even things like your favorite chips, because you never know when you might run out or how long it will take to get it again.
So, I have decided to start a new category titled “Load Up”, which I will inform you on things that I load up on.
The first thing I will dish about loading up on is SensiClear acne kit.
I posted my review on this awhile ago, but I have really become addicted to the whole kit to the point that I just ordered 2 60-day kits a couple of weeks ago. The SensiClear kit works for me, because since my first full face of acne in my early teens, I’ve always thought I just had acne ridden skin. However, I have come to realize that I have sensitive skin and when I use all these products that loaded with strong acne fighting chemicals, its just causes my skin to dry up and breakout. Not a good look.
I guess the reason that SensiClear works for me is because it has acne fighting ingredients, but they are gentle enough for sensitive skin that might get a touch of acne here and there.
I swoon this stuff!
Unfortunately, you can only purchase it at Duane Reade or through the SensiClear website. Since there is no Duane Reade in Memphis, I have to get mine through the SensiClear website. Actually, I’m thinking about buying a couple to use as stocking stuffers for my little sisters and my brother’s girlfriend! Just an idea.
As a beauty and fashion blogger, I have accumulated quite the stash of beauty products for review. There are times that I test them out and feel bleh about them and put them up and kind of forget about them until my little sis comes through and wipes me out. However, there are times when I instantly fall in love with a product and use it religiously and forget that it was a review product until I’m reminded or I run out and try to figure out when and where I got it from and and how can I get some more. My jar of Glowology Sugar Mama Honey Scrub falls into the latter.
Glowology Sugar Mama Honey Scrub is one of my fav body scrubs I’ve had the pleasure to use. It gently scrubs away dry skin and leaves a supple and moisturized skin. Also, its not loaded with an overbearing aroma, but instead a soft scent that is comparable with a gentle baby lotion. The texture is perfection, because its not too hard and grimy nor watery like past scrubs I’ve used.
Unfortunately, I only have a small amount left, but I do know where I can buy more. This will definitely be my go-to scrub this season of dry and rough skin.
