Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Cleansing Pads

I have been eyeing these cleansing pads for the past 2-3 weeks now and I finally gave in and decided to buy.  So Aveeno claims that the pads gently exfoliates to reveal skin's natural radiance.  One of the key ingredients in the pads is soy which is suppose to help even out the skin tone if there is any discoloration on your face.  The pads have two different textured sides, one smooth and the other with little scrubbies.  So when I first tried the cleansing pads I had make up on my skin, more so on my eyelids.  After wetting my face I used the smooth side of the pad on my face and it began to have a light foamy soapy lather that was very gentle.  The eyeshadow I had on my eyelids wiped right off within a couple of strokes of the pad.  Then I flipped the pad around and began to use the scrubby (exfoliation) side and the little scrubs were not harsh at all, just overall gentle and moisturizing.  Finally, I rinsed my face then applied coconut oil for moisture and voila completo!  Overall I can safely say that I like the cleansing pads a lot because of these keys reasons.
  • The removal of make up from my face was a breeze.
  • Moisture!!
  • Love the double sided pads.
  • Natural soy makes me happy, especially if it's known for bringing radiance to skin.
  • Actually left my face feeling CLEAN!
  • HOWEVER, if you don't follow up with a moisturiser your face may feel a little dry, some facial moisturizer or coconut oil should do the trick!
Overall I like this product and I can't wait to see the longterm results.  Thats it for now..peace!!

E.L.F Cosmetics!!

I just purchased some makeup from also known as E.L.F cosmetics.  E.L.F sales very cheap cosmetics, I mean dirt cheap like $1.00 cheap and your getting really good products.  I ordered four eyeshadows, one blush, one eye primer, two really great brushes, a great auto black eyeliner, and I got a free lip gloss.  Out of everything I recieved I was truly pleased with what I got for what I paid for.  I have a video on youtube discussing the products, swatches, and the names of the products that I recieved, here's the video , hope you like!

Ojon Ultra Hydrating Conditioner

Okay so Ojon Ultra Hydrating Conditioner is simple awesome!! My hair is thick and is prone to dryness, this is like the perfect deep conditioner for thick hair and any types of hair, it's just that good.  I have nothing bad to say about this is so good. Okay so it has a lot of great stuff in it like shea butter, almond oil, olive oil, macademia oil, and other very essential oils that are norishing to the hair. I applied this conditioner on dry hair, because when you apply conditioner on dry hair the conditioner absorbs more into the hair strand resulting into a better conditioning experience.  Next I rinse it out in the shower and my hair felt like BUTTER no lie, I love it and I might make this a keeper.  The only downside about this product is the price which normally reaches to about $22..yes $22, so it can be pricey, but look at all the high quality ingredients your getting.  So yeah Ojon Ultra Hydrating Conditioner is my new fav and I lovvve it!! I can not wait to wash my hair this weekend so I can use it again.  Hope you all get a chance to try it out, there is a sample bottle on the Sephora website for about $9, so if your afraid to take the plunge and by the regular size bottle then I suggest buying the smaller bottle.  Hope you enjoyed!!

L'Oreal True Match and Revlon Colorstay Foundation in Cappuccino

Hellooo! Okay so I have been looking for a good foundation for about a month now, but haven't really been buying anything so this past weekend I went to CVS and brought two foundations that I have been hearing good reviews on so i decided to take a plunge into trying out foundations and hopefully giving you all some insight if you are currently in the search for a good foundation.  So lets start with some pictures!

L'Oreal True Match

Revlon Colorstay

Okay so L'Oreal True Match had pretty good coverage and blended very easy almost like silk, it felt good and had more of a cool tone to it.  However the Revlon Colorstay offered great coverage, blended easy (not like silk), and gave me a toasty warm glow that I really liked.  When I first tried the Revlon Colorstay I was a little skeptical because it looks darker then what it really is, but once you blend it in it's like a perfect patch. So yes both foundation are great and if your looking for a pretty good foundation you can't go wrong.    Below is a url to my youtube video where I am doing a mini review on the two products and it also includes more pictures.  So if you want check it out :) Thanks 4 reading!

Hi-Shine Lip Treatment

First let me start off by telling you that this lip gloss is wonderful and the smell is so good.  Okay so basically this is Hi-Shine Lip Treatment by The Body Shop.  I had tried a sample of this gloss awhile back and fell in love with it, then just recently I found the store in my local mall and I had to have it.  It runs over ten bucks but it's worth every penny because it leaves your lips feeling soft, juicy, and smelling like some type of sweet candy fruit (sry that the best I could come up with lol), but overall its good and it gives just a little hint of color which compliments by skin tone.  I have this lip gloss in the color "Red Gleam" just like the one in the picture and they also provide many different colors and scents.  Overall this is a very good moisturizing lip gloss and I will purchase this again.  If you get the opportunity to try it please do so because it's worth it. I'm about to put some on right now..peace!!

Covergirl Lash Blast Mascara Review

So I wanted to review this mascara for what it really is and what it is not.  First off the main point of this mascara is for big bold lashes with great definition.  In my review, I really like it because it gives a bold look and it extends the lashes slightly, but not too over dramatic.  However this mascara is not the mascara for long lengthy lashes, just boldness.  Applying the mascara using the brush can be a little tricky at times especially if you are trying to get an all around full bold length on each lash because the brush is very big, probably the biggest mascara brush I have ever used.  Also sometimes the macara can clump a bit on the lashes if you use too much, being that the brush is pretty big a little goes a long way.  I have this mascara in black which is the color I normally buy for my brown eyes because it tends to make them pop.  Overall scale to 1-10 I would give Lash Blast an 8.  So if your looking for a good mascara to get the job done this is it right here.
