So, last night I had a beauty relaxation time – something I should be doing more often and getting off my computer!! Anyways, I reviewed all of the products about and can’t wait to let you all know the deets…
Younique, we’ve all heard of it – right? Well this self tanner is from Ashley Wallace. I purchased this item on Facebook with her through PayPal, so I give her 100% for a trustworthy state (if you’re ever concerned with purchasing online).
You can eve host your own online party with her and earn free products, if any of your friends support the cause. Ashley is great and such a sweetheart, definitely talk to her if you are interested in Younique products.
**I would just like to point out that I am a supporter for MLM companies. (I run 3 myself). When a brand comes to me, I usually stick with the first person and support them until the very end. However, I had a second Youniquer come to me to review their 3D mascara and because I have been so busy lately, I felt like I am contradicting the other. So, I do promote to girls from Younique, but I will keep them separate.
On to the review of this self tanner!
I ONLY used a tiny sprays, because I had to rub it in with my hands, but overall I am impressed. It is pretty liquid-y compared to other at-home self tanners. I didn’t think I would get any color at all or it would be cheap-like <–honest opinion!
Thankfully, it turned out to be a natural and subtle gorgeous sun-kissed look! No orange AT ALL. No streaks AT ALL. I did exfoliate my skin prior to the application and I even exfoliated my face. I have a slight problem with anything to do with microdermabrasion on my face, I have thin skin, so after exfoliation, it was a bit red and when I sprayed the tanner on my face (rubbed it all in evenly), I did go red. But, don’t worry if you think this will effect you. I get red after any irritation on my face. The redness did subside and I waited to see the color the following day – and voila! I’m impressed. Beautiful, streak-free, orange-free color! Younique should have more recognition than what they do have.
(I’m also impressed with their 3D mascara – but more on that later!)
Green Tangerine (hand crafted in Hampton, Ontario) is by Angela Spires. This body scrub is AHHMAZING! It was thick, soo thick that is just melted onto my skin. It is a brown sugar scrub and wow did it ever feel amazing on my skin. I even used it to scrub the bottoms of my feet and after letting my feet soak in it for a tiny bit, my dead skin lifted easily for me to scrub off. My skin felt irristably smooth after. Another brand that needs to be heard! 10/10 for the body scrub!!
Maskeraide was a bit of a challenge, it’s good to relax, but with me – I’m impatient! I used it only once and I didn’t really see too much of a difference. They are gel, so yes, my under eyes feel a bit more hydrated, but over – like someone mentioned on my Instagram post, you may need to use this more than once to see dramatic results. It also says to use it for 15-30 minutes. I only used it for abut 10-15 minutes.
Next I used the OGX curling shampoo. I left my hair fully natural without any other product, to get a complete overall view.
There is no other product in my hair and after one use, it’s not bad at alll! My hair is very hydrated, soft and curly! Well, wavy, it’s not magic, but it did a pretty good job. I thought that the conditioner wasn’t enough, it didn’t feel like it would work, but it did the job and my hair is knot-free. It looks like gorgeous beach-y waves. The picture may not be perfect, but take my word for it.
Pixi Glow Mud Cleanser smelt, felt and did the job like a mud mask, although it was softer and smoother (no rocky bits). It was a cleanser not a mask, so I used it twice because it kind of melted away on my skin. I thoroughly massaged the cleanser in my problem areas, just like a mud mask, I wanted it to remove my blackheads – it didn’t fully remove (we all have those stubborn deep ones!), but it truly and deeply cleansed my skin.
(That’s when I used the facial scrub and the self tanner – hence the beautiful sun-kissed glow, on a perfectly cleansed skin!)
….and the pink bath bomb! I actually got this from the FabFitFun box and I can’t remember the brand (I gave the rest to my mother). But, I am sure any bath bomb, especially Lush, is great. They just make your skin so soft and fresh after your bath – even this morning-I am still feeling great skin! The smell still lingers on me, too! This one was called Love Potion Jasmine, Rose and Sandalwood Essential Oil Blend.
…and that’s it! 5 down ladies 45 more reviews to go. LOL
Lots of love and stay pampered!
