Hugo Naturals All Over Lotion Comforting Vanilla & Sweet Orange

I was picked last month as a Hugo Naturals Ambassador!    Exciting, right?  They sent me three of their all natural products to try and review.  This the first one I’m going to share with you.  Hugo Naturals All Over Lotion in Comforting Vanilla and Sweet Orange smells like orange butter cream frosting.  Super duper […]

Hugo Naturals Ambassador

I’m pretty darn excited this morning.  I just got picked as a Hugo Naturals Ambassador.    I was lucky enough to have won a contest in December to get to try their bath salts.  They totally rocked.  Great smell and chased away my soreness.  I can definitely say that they make the most pure and […]

Hugo Naturals Effervescent Bath Salts in Mango & Guava

I was so excited that I won one of the 12 days of Christmas giveaway that Hugo Naturals held on facebook.  While I’d never tried their products before, I do love trying new things.  This reminds me of something I’d find at Whole Foods (Where I would shop more if it weren’t so out of […]

NYC New York Color Lip Gloss

So Influenster also sent some NYC Nude York City lip gloss in my holiday voxbox.  I was skeptical that I’d like it because I remember when I used to have NYC (http://www.newyorkcolor.com) products when I was a teenager.  And it was because they were cheap.  All my friends used it too for the same reason.  […]

Montagne Jeunesse Dead Sea Mask

  So as part of my Influenster holiday voxbox I received a Dead Sea mask from Montagne Jeunesse.  I love face masks in general as I’ve got naturally sensitive skin and it always seems to be pink looking.  The pink  comes from being Irish.  It doesn’t show as pink in photos (just shows up as […]

Garden Botanika Lash Enhancer

Another thing Influenster included in my holiday voxbox was Garden Botanika’s lash enhancer.  This wasn’t in all the voxboxes apparently.  I’ve never used a lash enhancer before mainly because I rarely wear any mascara.  I’ve been lucky enough to get naturally long thick black lashes.  But since they were in my box I figured I’d […]

Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-on Manicure in Dancing Queen

I received the Broadway nails imPRESS Press-on Manicure in the Dancing Queen pattern in my Influenster holiday voxbox.  The only problem I had with using them is…that naturally my nails are longer than the press-on ones.  So I had to drag out the file to make them shorter.  Otherwise they were super easy to put […]

Windy City Live Beauty Bag

So sometime last week a Windy City Live show gave away all of Val’s favorite beauty products.  While I wasn’t in the show audience, they stated on facebook that they had a few extra bags to giveaway.  They said they would email the winners….well I never got an email, but this really big box showed […]

Mickey Mouse Limited Edition BAND-AIDs

Smiley sent me a limited edition tin of Mickey Mouse BAND-AIDS.  I think they’re super cute.  But I’ve yet to have an owie I need to use them on.  My sister has gone through quite a few though.  And I can say they are cute.  More old fashioned designs.  So if you’re looking for a […]

Burt’s Bees Natural Skin Solutions for Sensitive Skin

I was lucky enough to get chosen to participate in the Burt’s Bees Sensitive Skin Bzz agent program.  Which is great for me because I’ve always had very sensitive skin (comes from being Irish, Danish and German).  I like the cleanser and moisturizer they sent and it was even better that they were full size […]

smile.ly—Be Heard. Be Happy.

smile.ly—Be Heard. Be Happy. If you’ve yet to join smile.ly, you should think again. It’s a great word-of-mouth marketing program where they send you products to try. They ask that you promise to tell people you talk to that you got the product for free. Also that it came from smile.ly. That’s not at all […]
