Mini Drugstore Makeup Haul

Some goodies I picked up yesterday at Walgreens. They had a buy 2 get on free on all the cosmetic brand lines.

1.The Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation was only 5.99 and I have heard great things so I am excited to try it.

2.The Loreal ColourRiche Matte is a gorgeous shade I have used before and is my favorite red shade. It was a shade named after Blake Lively knows as Blake’s Red 402 but they changed the name now to Devils Matte 402. I was glad to discover this as I thought they had discontinued this shade and I have been using my old tube rarely and sparingly. It is so hard to find that perfect red for my skin tone! This was 9.99.

3.Next is the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink in shade 15 Lover. I have not tried this line of liquid mattes yet and have not heard much so I am excited to try this as well. This was 9.99.

Bonus thing that happened was the makeup did not ring up with the sale price so the cashier took off one of the 9.99 priced items so essentially I got all three items for 16 dollars! Not too shabby! I am going to be testing the foundation and the Maybelline product today. I will update on my thoughts👍👍

NEOCELL Beauty Chews and Ceramides Skin Hydrator Supplements Review

So we have been told for decades by doctors and skincare experts that drinking lots of water is key for keeping your skin in optimum shape.  I drink TONS of water and yet I still deal with dryness issues.  As a lot of you know it seems like as soon as I  hit 40 I really struggled with major skin changes.  It seemed like it happened over night!  My skin used to be oily, especially during the summer months and all of a sudden I felt like I was a dried out husk of a person.  Now I drink tons of water and use a myriad of fantastic skincare products but sometimes that does just not seem enough to combat the dryness concerns.  So I thought back to what I have always been told, BEAUTY STARTS FROM THE INSIDE OUT.  So knowing this I set out to find out what I could do to fix my problem.

I came across this brand NEOCELL and they seemed to have some very innovative products geared to skin and hair health.  They can be found at Walgreen’s, CVS, Sam’s Club and Bed Bath and Beyond.  The first product I tried was the NEOCELL Ceramides Skin Hydrator.  The claim was you could see results in skin moisture and smoothness in as little as 15 days.  I had never heard of Ceramides so here is what I was able to find out about them:

Ceramides fortify the skins outer most layer and act as a water barrier to prevent the evaporation of moisture through the epidermis, keeping the skin hydrated and supple. Ceramides also prevent the breakdown of the skins collagen matrix by inhibiting collagenase, an enzyme that degrades collagen

This statement made sense to me, I can’t afford to be leaking out more moisture!!  The back of the bottle makes this claim:

Ceramides Skin Hydrator is a nutricosmetic solution scientifically formulated for healthy skin hydration.  This unique blend of beauty-enhancing promotes skin hydration, elasticity, and cellular turnover for glowing, supple skin


I have used this product for a month and I did notice a difference in the hydration of my skin in the first 15 days.  The big things I noticed was I had to use less lotion all over my body (Its winter time so that is a big deal).  My skin was less tight feeling as well.  At the end of the 30 days I noticed that my skin did seem smoother (especially in my face) and more plump looking.  My skin also did not look as tired and dull as before I started.  These differences mark a major feat in my skincare battles and I have to say I am super impressed. 

In addition to the NEOCELL Ceramides Skin Hydrator I also tried the NEOCELL Hair Skin & Nails Beauty Chews.  This tasty chew promised Healthy Lustrous Hair, Radiant Skin and Stronger Nails.  This supplement has 5000 MCG of Biotin, Collagen and Vitamin C. 

I have to say taking these 2 products in conjunction had a major effect and change in hair, skin and nails.  I can never grow my nails, when I try they are usually flimsy and break super easy (Then I just bight them off) this has always been a never ending battle.  In regards to my hair, I have fine curly hair and due to coloring for years it is prone to breakage and as I got older it just did not grow back as quickly as it had when I was younger.


After a month of using both of these products my skin is not only doing fantastic and looking great but my hair is actually growing in thicker and a lot healthier.  And lets not forget my nails!  They are growing much stronger and they are not breaking or splitting anymore.  I can actually paint them and not feel ashamed of my hands for once in my life. 

All in all this brand gets two thumbs up from me and I look forward to continuing to use them for a long time.  If you experience any of these struggles you should run.. not walk to your nearest retailer and purchase these.  I have used similar products like these in the past with limited results.  NEOCELL beats these other brands out of the water (no pun intended).

Thanks for reading y’all and I hope to have some new fun discoveries to share with you soon.

I really thought there would be like a hydrogen bubble type tingle sensation with this mask but there was not and that is not a big deal.

After removing the mask and waiting for a while to let the product really sink in my skin felt so plumped up and hydrated. This mask is definitely a WINNER!

Review of ISOI Bulgarian Rose Waterfull Cream

This ISOI Bulgarian Rose Waterfull Cream was everything I hoped it would be and more. This formula is for dry/sensitive skin and as a lot of my followers know that is something I struggle with lately as I age my skin seems to have all sorts of new demands, one of them being is a need for constant moisture. Can I just have a mister follow me around?

The cream itself is pretty thick but absorbs relatively quickly. I found I was able to put my makeup on about 20 minutes after my morning application. There is no crazy odor, just a very light rose smell. I found it wears well under my makeup and my skin maintains a nice glow throughout the day. Wearing this under my makeup has stopped any mid day dryness concerns I had been having.

I have used this at night and in the morning. I did find that after washing my face, applying toner, serum and the cream my skin did very well. I found personally using at night was too much so I am sticking with using this in my morning routine since it helped maintain a great balance of moisture all day.

I highly recommend this product even though it is a bit on the pricey end. I did find a little goes a long way to it will last you a while. If you are a sufferer of dry skin you will definitely want this in your arsenal.

I did purchase this product at a discount in exchange for my honest review.

Good Earth Tea Company Review

I finally got a chance to try my sample I got from @GoodEarthTeaCo . I got two sachets of the Pineapple Blues no. 64.
This is such a refreshing blend.🌸 It has blackcurrant, pineapple pieces, greentea, hibiscus and a host of other wonderful ingredients. I chose to prepare this as a iced tea as opposed to hot. The closer we get to the warmer months I like to start experimenting with different iced tea options to switch up the boring normal iced tea routines of summer. This has such a great flavor with a touch of sweet and this is without me adding any sweetener.
I highly recommend trying this out. Your taste buds will be very pleased!👍👍

Review of Revlon ColorSilk Butter Cream Shade 93 Light Golden Blonde

I have to say I am in love with this hair color! I have a naturally ashy blonde color but I like to have a light golden blonde closest to my hair color I had when I was younger and this 93 Light Golden Blonde shade fit my needs exactly! The color was very easy to apply and came with a convenient precision brush/comb that make making sure the color was evenly distributed a breeze. The step 3 after coloring conditioner left my hair feeling so soft after coloring. The color itself did not come out brassy at all it was perfect.
It has been almost 2 weeks since my initial coloring and the color itself and condition of my hair has held up very nicely but I went ahead and used the step 4, 2 week nourishing mask last night and I feel like it just gave my hair an extra boost in condition and shine.
All in al this is a great product and I can’t wait to try it again!

Wishtrend Green Tea & Enzyme Powder Wash Review

This product was very nostalgic for me to use. It reminded me of a cleanser I used when I was younger that I loved!

This Green Tea and Enzyme Powder wash has Green Tea Powder, Papain Enzymes and baking soda. It is a very simple product that gently exfoliates while also maintaining a delicate PH balance that was not drying or irritating to my skin.

This wash is gentle enough to use every day in my opinion, however I use it every other day as I tend to not exfoliate every day. My skin felt fresh and clean after using and not tight at all. No harsh smells to report either. Very pleasant experience.

This gets a 2 thumbs up from me and I can see myself purchasing this when I run out.

My skin type: Fair, over 40 maturing skin, tends to get dry and sometimes irritated.

Elizavecca Milky Piggy EGF Elastic Retinol Cream Review

I am absolutely AMAZED by this EGF Retinol cream. The Elizavecca brand has proven to me yet again that just because their packaging is gimmicky and cute does NOT mean that they have a cute or gimmicky product. This cream means business!

I use this powerful cream only at night as Elizavecca recommends. With any product containing Retinol you do not want to use during the day, your skin will be very sensitive and prone to sun burn. I use this every other night after washing my face and applying serum of my choice. The consistency is a little sticky/tacky but it absorbs beautifully and when I wake up my skin feels plump and moisturized. I do suggest wearing sunscreen all the time but especially while using this cream.
I did not have any reactions using this cream, no redness or itchiness which I have experienced in the past trying retinol products.

I have noticed my overall skin texture feeling more firm, radiant and reduction in fine lines. All of this after only one week of use so the sky is the limit with this tub of goodness. I can’t wait to see what results I will continue to see with more long term use.

I definitely give this 2 thumbs up! My skin type: Fair, Over 40 mature skin, sensitive, prone to dryness. #Elizavecca #Retinol #beautifulskin #Elasticcream #RetinolCream #08L
