FabFitFun Summer 2019

Hello, friends! Here again with another FabFitFun review for the summer. It is late but, hey, someone, somewhere might find it useful! So, to be totally honest, I loved this box but decided a couple of weeks ago to cancel this subscription. I looked at the spoilers for the fall box and was so unimpressed and didn’t really want to spend the $49 (plus tax!) so decided to just cancel. The good thing about this subscription service is that is super easy to cancel and easy to reactivate so if I change my mind for the winter box, no problem. Now, on to the products! Oh, and if you were unaware, this box is sent semi-annually for each season and is $49 each box. Glad we cleared that up…onwards!

FabFitFun Summer 2019

So, my favorite items that I use daily and have used are the Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Cream and Shower gel set. I have used both products before and LOVE both of them. So this was very exciting. The Coola Setting Spray was also exciting especially since it is summer and I have been trying to up my sunscreen game but I have not used it yet. The Rose facial spray is just okay. Loved the silicone wine glasses but haven’t found an excuse to use them yet so stay tuned! Lastly, the West Elm bowls have turned out to be one of my favorites ever. I use them everyday because they are the perfect size.

I really enjoyed this summer box but like I said, I have unsubscribed but will probably at least look into restarting it for the winter depending on the spoilers. If you are interested in starting this box, I would definitely try it with the caveat of checking the spoilers first.

Thanks so much for reading!

Sephora PLAY! October 2018

Sephora Play October 2018

Sephora Play!

Hiya!!

I was pretty excited this month because I received my Sephora Play box pretty quickly this month.

This is my favorite subscription box because you get a lot of products sold at Sephora and it’s only $10.

I’m most excited about the Replica perfume sample called “Sailing Day” because I love their Beach Walk fragrance and really wanted to try this fragrance.  It says it is for male and female and is very clean without smelling like laundry detergent so that’s cool.

I also wanted to try the fresh Soy Face cleanser as I am running out of my Sunday Riley face wash.

I have tried Make Up Forever before and didn’t really care for it but that was a while ago.  Foundations are my favorite products to try so I’m up for it.

Caudalie Vinoperfect serum I have tried and it was okay.  The other two products from Tarte and Benefit I have received before but still good for travel.

Overall, I’m okay with this month’s box.  It wasn’t the greatest ever but still worth the $10.

Thanks for reading!

Empties!!

I finally went through my bin of used skincare, beauty, and random products I have used over the last few months and decided to make a post about it. I love to watch YouTube empties videos so I thought I would try it.

  1. Kevin Murphy Shampoo & Conditioner– These were travel size shampoo and conditioner that I have had for over a year that I just used for travel and finally used up.  Really liked these but I have other shampoo products to go through.  I would recommend and repurchase once I am finished with my current products.

2. Pureology Hydrate Shampoo/ Conditioner– More hair products.  Really like this brand and would definitely repurchase.

3. Amika Shampoo/ Conditioner– I really loved the hair conditioner that can be used as a mask or just daily conditioner.  The purple shampoo was fairly drying so I only used about once a week.  All of the Amika products have the best smell so I would buy again just because it smells so nice.

  1. Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream LOVE! Have repurchased many times.

Ahava Dead Sea Mineral Hand Cream– I got this in a FabFitFun box a while ago and finally finished it.  It was nice but I probably wouldn’t go out to buy it.

Pacifica Hawaiian Ruby Guava Body Butter– I have purchased this many times and I will for sure by again.  I love the smell and the formula.

2. Cremo Classic Original Shave Cream– This is marketed for men but works just as well for women for shaving.  It makes my legs super soft and moisturized so I will continue to repurchase.

Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub– I started using this after watching Jennifer Ross (PrettyNeatLiving on YouTube) years ago and have repurchased numerous times. It’s a great exfoliator without being drying or too abrasive.

  1. Drunk Elephant  –

I have used about 90% of Drunk Elephant’s products for at least 2 years but I have since moved on to other products.  I love the aesthetic and clean ingredients in the Drunk Elephant products but they are really pricey and didn’t seem to agree with my skin type.  I gave it a serious try but my skin has actually improved since stopping the DE regime.  So. I am just about the only person in the universe who doesn’t like Drunk Elephant, ha!

Shiseido Facial Cotton– I mean, are these necessary no? But are they awesome? Uh, yeah! That is all.

Lancome Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover– This is the travel size but I have repurchased the full size many times so love it.

I got the Kate Somerville Wrinkle Warrior serum and Lancer Mask as samples from Sephora and didn’t notice much difference with KS but loved the Lancer…I would purchase the Lancer mask but it is a bajillion dollars at Sephora so we’ll see.

Lancer The Method:Polish– Loved it! It is pricey but this bottle lasted about 2 years as I only used it a few times a week and very sparingly.  Will repurchase once I use up my other exfoliators.

Kiehl’s Eye Treatment with Avocado– love it, will definitely repurchase.

Perricone MD Skin Perfecting Serum– This replaced the DE serums and I love it.  My skin is clearer than it has been in a while.  I have already repurchased!

And that is all, whew!
