How to Get Glowing Skin On a Budget

E.L.F Cosmetic’s Hydrating Bubble Mask Review

Hey lovelies!

Last week was my paycheck to splurge so I was in need of a decent, yet affordable mask.  I was walking around Target checking out the Elf Cosmetics Section, and I had found their Hydrating Bubble Mask and decided to give it a try.

I like to do a bubble mask every other night to keep my skin in tip top shape, I also NEVER allow myself to go to sleep with make up on.

Let’s get glowing!

Packaging:

Let me start by saying I am absolutely in love with this packaging!  It comes in a 1.69 oz/ 50 g plastic container.  The container is rather sturdy and comes with a pump release.  I love the color of the packaging as well it is a bluish-green color and it reminds of something you would see at a spa club, or getaway.

Product:

I am obsessed with this mask!  You can use it daily or a few times a week, which ever you would like!  How it works it you press down on the pump twice and apply a thin layer of product.  Wait 5 to 10 minutes for mask to completely dry, while it dries it creates a bubbly, fizzy sensation that you can feel and hear, I think it’s pretty nifty!    I can feel the stress literally fizz away!

Once the product has dried, rinse off all product with warm water, and pat your face dry with a towel.  Finish off by using your daily moisturizer.

Honestly I am blown away by how baby soft, and glowing my skin is after using this mask it is definitely something I will be purchasing a lot of!

Cost: 

I found the hydrating bubble mask by ELF Cosmetics at Target for $14.00.  I usually cringe at stuff like this but a bottle can last 1 to two months for me, and in reality, its cutting me off of eating out so I can’t complain!  I feel the 14 dollar price tag is a very reasonable price!

W7’s HD Foundation Review in Sand Beige

In the world makeup gurus,you tubers,and influencers, finding the perfect foundation can be as hard as finding Mr.Right.  Have no fear!  W7 HD Foundation is here!

The Packaging:

p-4933-w7-hd-sandbeige

I love W7’s packaging it comes in a 30 mL glass bottle, with a red pump.  Therefore, this is a pump foundation and you really only need two to three pumps as this delivers medium coverage it can also give you full coverage if you go another pump!

The Price:

I highly recommend this product especially if you are on a tight budget, in school, or just do not want to go crazy on buying a decently awesome foundation.  I bought mine for five dollars at my local Ocean State Job Lot.

The Product:

On my right side of bare skin with NO foundation.  On my left side is the foundation I believe I picked a shade too dark but its okay, with a little setting or foundation powder it works out perfect!  It feels a little waxy at the start but once the foundation sets to my skin it actually feels really soft and gives me a glowy, warm, and natural look.  I don’t like makeup that looks cakey and this does not do that so I am absolutely in love!

Swatch:

I did a swatch of the foundation to show you the consistency and color, it does dry a little lighter,so I never worry too much about color, as said a little setting spray also really helps deliver.

My Overall Rating and Opinion:

I am in love with W7 Cosmetics I have so far only tried their foundation, and I am very impressed, in case you are a first time audience of my blog, I only write about cruelty free brands and only use them because I do not agree to the idea of a bunny being bleached with chemicals so a human can look pretty.

Any who, overall I rate this foundation a 9 out of 10, for the price you really can’t go wrong, especially being a low end product it lives up to high end expectations,  The only thing I’m not crazy about is that it takes a little work to blend it, but that also could be just because I bought a shade a tad dark for my skin.

You can find W7 Cosmetics at your local Ocean State Job Lots, or on their website:

Ninja Coffee Bar Review 

Christmas time I was asked by my family and friends what my boyfriend and I wanted for Christmas. We have been in our own apartment for two years.  

We are complete caffeine addicts and honestly, we needed a new coffee machine we had a cheapo 10 dollar machine that honestly murdered the magical ways of caffeine bliss!  So this year we got the Ninja Coffee Bar.

Today I share my renewed love and joy for coffee using the Ninja Coffee Bar.

What it Does:

Really what doesn’t this great machine do?  

It has four main settings on the knob of the machine.  These select the size of your coffee you can choose mug, travel mug, half or full carafe.

Next it has three main settings for your brew.

First you have ice which makes your coffee cold.  Then you choose from rich brew which gives you that exquisitely bold,sensual flavor, or classic brew which gives you the nostalgic taste of “mom and pop” coffee shops.  You also have an additional choice called “specialty(concentrated) coffee” this is for espresso that is finely ground or needs to be brewed gently and with more TLC than your average java.

You also have a stay warm option fot when you want to heat up coffee that has cooled down in your carafe.  

Plus there is a button that is “clean” it lights up when you need to clean the coffee machine.

You can make endless coffee varations such as macchiatos,americanos,lattes and much more! It even comes with a milk frother for more added fun and deliciousness. 

How to Use:

  1. Twist off the resevoir and fill with ONLY filtered water.  Water from tap or unfilterred may clog up your machine with gunk! Fill to your desired amount.  DO NOT fill higher than max capacity line!
  2. Turn the knob to your desired size use the insert in your Ninja Coffee Bar to place a mug or travel mug if you are making single serves, or select full or half carafe for more than a few servings.
  3. BEFORE selecting a brew, use your measuring cup that came with the Ninja Coffee Bar, use the smaller part for travel mug or single cup, use the larger scoop for half or full carafe. ONLY add in the suggested amount of coffee and never over fill.  BEFORE adding coffee to the coffee net apply a PAPER coffee filter. ONLY use paper coffee filters!
  4. Select the type of brew/ amd if you want hot just slect the brew type otherwise push the “serve over ice” option.
  5. Wait for coffee to finish brewing and enjoy! 

Overall Thoughts

I honestly give the Ninja Coffee Bar a 5 out of 5 star rating.  It is like having your own barista, or coffee shop at home and you can save so much money!   As mentioned you can also get really creative with it too!

Have you expereinced the Ninja Coffee Bar?

Twinkle VoxBox Review

Hello again!

Today I am reviewing a long due post about the Twinkle VoxBox I was kindly sent from Influenster.

Please note all products were sent for testing purposes only and are not being used for resale!

Let’s get to it!

Aquation Lotion:  Out of all the products I received in this box I loved this product the most.  This lotion is light weight, glides on smoothly, and doesn’t stain clothes, score!  Added brownie points, this is a cruelty free product(very important to me).  I also love that you can use this lotion on your face as well anytime you need a little extra moisture to keep your skin from feeling like sand!

Oreo Thins:

While this wasn’t a bad tasting snack, I honestly didn’t think it tasted any different from the traditional Oreos you find at the store.  I’m not a big cookie eater, at least not ones that aren’t made at home, so for me it wasn’t something out of the ordinary.

Reynolds Cookie Baking Sheets:

Again, this isn’t something I use much of and I honestly use my crock pot for most dishes so I can’t honestly give you a comparison review or anything like that.  They aren’t bad by any means and I do use them when I do bake in the oven such as cookies, and brownies, they are pretty useful.  However, as said, I don’t use these very much so I don’t feel a need to actually buy more.

 

AXE White Label Night Body Wash 16 Ounce

Axe Body Wash in “Night”

I personally love the scent of this, lavender, and cedarwood, and just very husky, sexy, man beast.  I used it myself, my boyfriend wasn’t a big fan.  However I did get a lot of attention from other females(tee hee!).

I also received Covergirl Lash Blast, and Crockpot butter, however I am not a fan of Covergirl and I do not care for butter so I honestly did not like either product enough to want to review it.
