Skincare Sunday - Divine Essence Organic Labrador Tea Floral Water Mist Review

Happy Skincare Sunday! My skin loves floral water mists; but, I generally use a rose mist, so I was excited to try a labrador tea floral mist for something different!

Five on Friday - July 21, 2017

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you all had a great week - we did! Elliott slept through the night for the first time this week! 10 hours from 9:00 pm to 7:00 am. I was so excited! It's not a regular thing yet, but it was still pretty great. Also, I finished a book this week so I am feeling like a normal person again! 


I have talked about this Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF 50+ PA++++ on the blog - it made my monthly favorites back in July 2016 and it is still a favorite! So I went to buy the 2015 version (because I had read they changed the formula with this year's version and I like the old version).

July 2017 - Boxycharm Unboxing, Review, Swatches and Makeup Try-on!

Boxycharm is a beauty subscription box for $21.00 a month + $5.00 shipping to Canada (shipping is free to the U.S.) Boxycharm sends 4 to 5 full size and luxury size beauty items. 

This subscription focuses heavily on make-up items - so that is something to keep in mind! (I personally love all the makeup though and they have sent full size palettes in the past!) While it is a little pricier than the more inexpensive beauty boxes, the majority of the products are full size, with a deluxe sample every once in a while. 

Every subscriber generally receives the same products, but their is usually 1 or 2 items that have a few variations, so our boxes may not be identical! 

Here is a look at my July Boxycharm:

July 2017 - Boxycharm Unboxing, Review, Swatches and Makeup Try-on!

This month's theme is "Cutie Pie" and Boxycharm always includes a detailed product card explaining the items that were included in each month's subscription.

Mask Wednesday - Garnier Moisture Bomb Sheet Mask Review

Happy Mask Wednesday! Garnier recently released a sheet mask called the Moisture Bomb and I had to get my hands on it! 

There isn't a lot of options for sheet masks in the drugstore so I hope this is good! I have actually seen really mixed reviews on this mask, so I wanted to see for myself how it was! 

Mask Wednesday - Garnier Moisture Bomb Sheet Mask Review

Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb Mask ~ $3.99. The super-hydrating technology, with hydrating serum, hyaluronic acid and naturally-derived ingredients, recharges the skin with moisture for 24 hours. The mask strengthens the skin's natural barrier function to protect it from external aggressions and preserve its youthful appearance.

This mask is supposed to be super hydration - for 24 hours after use! My skin loves hyaluronic acid and pomegranate is well known for anti-aging skin benefits. Garnier also masks 2 other Moisture Bomb masks - Sensitive Skin and Mattifying!
