Nivea Post Shave Balm

Hey everyone!

I’ve heard all the hype about the Nivea Post Shave Balm being an amazing makeup primer. So I finally decided to try it out for myself. I want to see if it’s worth the hype. I hope it is because it’s very inexpensive.

Stay tuned for my thought on this product.

Essence Soft Touch Mousse Foundation 

Hey everyone!! So I recently picked up some Essence cosmetics at Target. Usually I would wait a little bit longer before I do a review on something I just hauled but this foundation is amazing and I knew that after the first time I used it. Plus it’s only $4.99. Yay!!!

 Here is a before picture  

Here is the after with the foundation  

I have the NYX Photo-Loving Primer on underneath.

This foundation makes my skin look amazing and it lasts all day. I also tried it without the primer and it still held up really well. I didn’t notice it breaking down or oxidizing. Which are two of my biggest turn offs.

One thing that I think makes this really good is that it gives the skin a soft focus look that helps blur out any imperfections. It’s a medium to full coverage and it was more of a full coverage on me. Usually when a foundation is full coverage, it feels heavy on my skin but this felt light weight.

 Here is the final look without any filters.

I will definitely be repurchasing this foundation. I have been looking for a holy grail foundation and I think I found it. 

Just remember, what works on my skin may not work on yours. That’s one thing I always try to remember when reading reviews.

Have you tried this foundation? What are your thoughts?

Face of The Day

Target Beauty Box-April 2016

Hey everyone, I was so excited when I woke up at 5:30am and was able to purchase the Target Beauty Box. Well, I wasn’t that excited to wake up at

I’ve heard this box can sell out really fast. Now I know why, you get some great products for only $7.

  Hello, Sunshine!!!!
 Look at all those goodies.. Yay!!!
 Laneige Waterbank Soothing Gel Mask. I’ve never used a mask like this before, so I’m really excited to try this.
 Maybelline Dream Velvet Gel-Whipped Foundation. I’m so happy the sample is in my shade because I’ve been wanting to try this foundation for a while now. Plus, it comes with a $2 off coupon.
 Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes. I’ve used these before and really like how there’s no harsh chemicals. This sample is great to throw into your purse I case of makeup emergencies.
 Pantene Pro-V Air Spray. This is alcohol free hairspray. I never use hairspray in my hair but since I just cut my hair off, I may want to style it more. So this could come in handy.
 Marlowe Body Butter. I’ve never heard of this brand but it smells really good and made my skin very soft the first time I used this, I may want to buy a full size lotion.
 Hawaiian Tropics Island Sport Uktra Sport. This will come in handy this summer. I never have any sun screen when I need it.
 CeraVe Healing Ointment. I think I’m going to give this to my husband because his hands are always dry and cracking.
 Covergirl Colorlicious Lipstick in Coquette Orchid. I love this lipstick. The packaging is so pretty and so is the color. I can’t wait to wear this out.
So that’s the April 2016 Target Beauty Box. I think it definitely worth $7. I really hope I can get my hands on May’s box.

Dove Dry Oil Moisture Body Wash Review 

Hey everyone, in my recent Walmart Beauty Box I received the Dove Dry Oil Moisture body wash. I was really excited because I’ve been looking for a new body wash.

  From the Walmart website 

I love Dove body wash because it doesn’t dry out your skin. It leaves it feeling soft and smooth. 

This Dove body wash is a little different. The first thing I noticed was the smell. It smelled like a household cleaning product. I was grossed out by the smell, I almost didn’t use it, but decided that I should at least try it. 

When I poured it on my pouf it didn’t get that sudsy but usually body washed with Moisturizers in them don’t suds up as much as regular body washes. As long as it does the job, I don’t care about the suds.

After washing, I did notice my skin was softer but I just couldn’t get past the smell. I even thought that maybe my sample of body wash was bad. 

The formula is great but the smell is to much for me. I won’t be purchasing a full size but I do love Dove brand body washes.

Did anyone else notice the smell was a little off or was it just me?

Face of The Day!! Church Edition!!

Happy Sunday!!

So we are off to church this morning. I decided to try out my Essence makeup that I hauled yesterday. I have to say I’m very impressed. I will have reviews coming up soon.

I also decided to chop my hair off. I know, very 

 So I took a pair of cooking shears and went to work. I cut a lot off and I think it looks really good.

I also used the NYC palette that I bought at the Dollar Tree. I have to say it is so good. I love when I find a great deal.

Also, if anyone has Snapchat, they have a filter that makes you skin look flawless. If anyone wants to follow me on Snapchat my user name is mandyjo1979

Essence Haul!!!!

Hey everyone!!

Since I found out about Target selling Essence Cosmetics, I just had to go back a grab some goodies. 

Let check out the goodies.. My favorite

  They had another foundation but they didn’t have my color in the line, so I thought I would check this out. It’s a natural matte finish. I hope it’s good.
  10 Heat Wave
They only had two shades and I thought both of them was so pretty. I actually loved them both but I have a spending limit. I know, I’m sad

  Look on the bright side
This is a cream to powder highlighter. I’ve heard really good things, so I’m very excited to play around with this..yay!!!

I’ve heard a lot of great things about their mascara. I’m always on the hunt for a good mascara. 

  12 Blush My Lips
Long lasting lipstick and the color is gorgeous. I swatched it on my hand and wiped it off. It stained my hand. I even washed dishes and the stain is still there, so I’m very excited.
I also bought one thing from NYX. 

 Tea & Cookies

I have been wanting to try this forever. I’m so flipping happy the Target got some in stock.

That’s it for my haul. I can’t wait to try all these products out and review them for you guys.
