Phthalate Free Perfume That Won’t Crush Your Budget

Caldrea Roller Ball Perfume Coconut Fig Leaf Review

I really really love Vamp a NY. It smells exactly how I want to smell not only when the temperature rises but also when its cold out too. But I just can’t justify spending $100 bucks on it, even if it’s formulated without dreaded phthalates. I just can’t. I really fucking can’t.  Continue reading

StriVectin-SD™ Eye Concentrate for Wrinkles

StriVectin-SD™ Eye Concentrate for Wrinkles ReviewIn the under eye department, normally there is not too much to talk about. I usually reach for eye creams for an added moisture boost–thats it. Normally, my eyes don’t need special attention. But honestly when I’m enjoying life (staying out late) or working hard (staying up late) it takes a toll on my eyes.

Jouer Matte Moisture Tint

Jouer Matte Moisture Tint Review

I’ve been really loyal for the last year to the same foundation, Vapour Organic Atmosphere Luminous Foundation. It totally broke me of my love for Laura Mercier’s Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer. I love that its organic, safe, and in an easy to use and transport stick and the coverage was great, let my skin breathe and did not cause dreaded breakouts. But, I kept hearing chatter about Jouer Matte Moisture Tint and I was curious. While I never got a sample in my BirchBox, when I accumulated some points through Birchbox I knew it was time to pull the trigger.

BirchBox Week at One Product

I love, LOVE Birchbox. Each month I get a lovely little package and am usually blown away. I love not knowing what little beauty surprises will be inside and also I love the little brown boxes, they have so many uses and they can be seen all over my house organizing all sorts of things. Each month I eagerly await its arrival and each month at least one product really stands out. But this past month, almost every product blew me away that I almost immediately purchased them in full size– something I’ve never really done before. This week I’ll be reviewing and sharing all of the products that blew me away in Aprils Box. Get ready, get set and lets go!
