Apothecary Extracts 100% Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil Review


IMG_5608

I am such a huge believer in the powers of Tea Tree Oil. My sister is always telling how amazing Tea Tree Oil is for you body and also your hair. I love using Tea Tree Oil in my hair. It’s one of those products that are part of my daily natural hair regimen. Every product I own has a hint of Tea Tree Oil in it because I am literally obsessed. When I was given the opportunity by BrandBacker to try out the Apothecary Extracts 100% Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil I was so elated. I’ve always wanted to work with them but every time I applied for a campaign I was denied but not this time. The first thing that stood out to me with this product was the smell. This Tea Tree Oil is pure (the real thing). The odor is so pungent that to be honest I sometimes don’t even want to use it but I got over it. I love to apply it when my hair is clean, which is right after I shampoo it. Normally I have a very itchy scalp but since I started using this brand my itchy scalp isn’t so itchy anymore. I noticed that a lot of the acne and yes I get acne on my scalp it’s so disgusting but I noticed that it hasn’t been appearing that much. I am in love with this product and now I am mixing it with my Tea Tree Oil Shampoo and conditioner because even though it’s oil it’s not really oily so it can be mixed with anything. My only reservation about the product is the smell of it but soon I’ll get over it. I definitely recommend this product to anyone who has hair problems or simply just wants to try out Tea Tree Oil.

YSL Influenster VoxBox Review

Yves Saint Laurent Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara

I love getting new products to try out and when I found out I was getting the VIP YSL VoxBox I was overjoyed. I’m not really a mascara person and I only wear makeup in the spring and summer so the newly re-launched Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils arrived at the perfect time. I am loving this YSL Mascara. The brush is perfect and it doesn’t hold to much product so that when you’re applying it doesn’t clump at all. I only used one coat of the mascara since my eyelashes are already full and don’t really need mascara to help it appear fuller. However, I noticed that after application and once it dried my eyelashes looked a lot livelier if you understand what I mean. I also think this mascara has a little fragrance to it. It smells really good. I love the packaging. Gold is my one of my favorite colors and you will also see from the pictures below that my nails match the mascara. This was one of my first designer mascaras. When I do buy mascara I normally use Buxom from Sephora and I find the YSL Mascara gives me the same effect also. The YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara retails for $32 and I think for the brand the price isn’t too bad. I definitely plan on wearing this all the time. Hey I got it free so I better use it. Can’t wait to give you guys an updated review once I’ve used it a lot more. Have you guys tried the newly re-launched YSL Mascara or any other YSL products?

Beauty Spotlight: Liz Earle

After watching Dulce Candy’s nighttime routine video I decided to try one of the products she mentioned and swore that it worked amazingly. I normally don’t buy facial cleansers referred or mentioned by Youtube beauty gurus but since I was desperate for a new facial cleansers I decided to throw caution to the wind and I bought the Liz Earle’s Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser from birchbox.com When I got this product I was so excited to try it out because when I did my research I only heard good things about this brand and particular product. The first night I used this product I have to honestly admit that my face felt no different after cleaning it. However, I decided to continue using it because to be honest this product is $24.50 and I am not one to waste my money. Today, I’m happy I decided to continue using the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser because after a couple uses twice a day my face literally feels renewed. Before the Hot Cloth Cleanser my face was dull, dry, my skin looked lifeless and I would have so many little pimples all over my face.  Today, my skin’s smoother, clearer, no gross pimples, has a natural glow and overall I feel happy that I continued to use the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser. This product is a natural miracle worker. Another amazing thing about this product is that there is no need to exfoliate after using this product because of the muslin cloth provided that removes the cleanser with hot water and all the dead skin and dirt on your face.  I give this product 10 stars and I highly recommend all you beauty gurus and lovers to add the Liz Earle’s Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser to your daily skin care regimen. I promise you that you won’t be disappointed. xx ♥

♥ I got this Pedi-Rock in the new GoVoxBox from Influenster. This product is one of my favorite things I got in the new voxbox. I love how after using the Pedi-Rock my feet feel so soft and the dead skin under my feet completely goes away after using it. This product is definitely worth adding to your shower routine.

♥ The Aqua Spa creme is another one of the products that came in the new GoVoxBox from Influenster. This creme smells divine, The first time I used the creme my skin felt so soft and the lingering smell was just so calming. I’m going to be honest and tell you the best time to use this creme is before you go to bed either for a nap or at the ending of your day. I did this an I literally slept like a baby. This lotion is so calming that it knocks you out 🙂

4. VS Pink Margarita Phone Case

♥ My sister who works at Victoria Secret got me this amazingly cool case. It’s so perfect for the Summer and everywhere I go people are obsessed with my phone case. This is my best and my favorite phone case ever.

5. Hillsong NYC

♥ On Sunday the 25th my friend and I decided to take the train to NYC to visit Hillsong NYC Church. The experience was phenomenal. I was in awe of the crazy and intense love for Jesus everyone had. Hillsong NYC is on a roll and they absolutely got it going on. They make you feel at home and you can tell and feel that everyone is genuinely there for the right reason. If you’re ever in the NY area and looking to go to church Hillsong NYC @ The Manhattan Center is the place. (P.S. They serve gummy worms at the church)

May Julep Maven Box Review

This month my May Julep Maven Box was amazing. I decided to change the theme of my box to Modern Beauty so instead of getting tons of Nail Polishes I won’t use from the “It Girl Box” I get 2 full size products. This month I absolutely loved what came in my little purple Julep Maven Box. I got a “Brilliance Glycolic Hand Scrub” and a “Rock Star Hand Crème.” This is probably the first time I actually loved everything that was in the box they sent me. The hand scrub is everything I imagined it would be. The hand scrub is incredible. After I applied the scrub onto my hand and I rubbed it in, my hand felt so clean and soft. I then applied the hand lotion that came with it and hours later my hand is still very moisturized and soft. Overall, the products they sent me were worth the 19$ a month I pay for the box. I was definitely considering canceling my Julep subscription but this Julep Maven box totally changed my mind. If you would like to sign up for a monthly Julep Maven Box  click on my referral link—> http://www.julep.com/rewardsref/index/refer/id/264412/, fill out your Maven Style Profile and you will receive you Julep Maven Box for only $19.99.
