Yay or Nay: Birchbox

Sometimes I find myself wanting to review a lot of products but I also don’t want to make my blog an all review blog.  There are also some products that I don’t find good enough to have it’s own post.  Because of this I decided to start a series called “Yay or Nay.”  In this series I will review a bunch of products that I other wise would not have time to review.  I will keep the reviews short so since some of them will feature many products.

Yay or Nay: Birchbox

Todays Yay or Nay is all about Birchbox samples.  There are many times in my Unboxing posts that I say I will review a certain product but I never get to it so in this post you will see my thoughts over some of those Birchbox samples.  There are 10 of them today, so let’s go right in!

Kerastase Curl Ideal Review

Having curly hair has its perks as well as its downfalls.  One of the downfalls is having frizzy hair where it doesn’t even form a beautiful curl that, deep down inside, you know you have.  Because of this, I was super excited to see that I had received the Kerastase Curl Ideal Cleansing Conditioner and Oleo-Curl Cream in my Spirit VoxBox.  I didn’t get to try out the product until a week ago.  I used it once but I think that is all I need for this review, which could also be a first impressions.

Like I mentioned above, I was super excited to test out these two products, I could already picture myself with beautiful curls.  I decided to try it out the night before going to work because, if this product worked, I wanted to sport my beautiful curls in public.   Continue reading

Skin Care

1. How many times do you wash your face daily?

I’m horrible at washing my face everyday, I do however always using a makeup remover wipe if I wear makeup that day.

2. What skin type do you have? (dry, oily, combo)

My skin is pretty normal but I do get slightly oily on my t-zone, so I would say that I have combination skin. Continue reading

Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer

Having moisturized skin is very important, it makes us look good and it is a sign that we are healthy.  While some people are in the habit of putting lotion on everyday, others, like me, not so much!  I always seems to forget to put on lotion, even in the summer, so I can have some pretty dry skin.  When I saw a funny commercial featuring Leslie Mann promoting the Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer, I wanted to try out!! My sister and I decided to buy it and see how good this product really is.

Beauty Tips & Tricks

I have always loved everything beauty related since I was much younger, my favorite presents included pretend makeup.  I remember going to school with a purse full of that fake makeup and lots of lipgloss.  At the age of 13 I started wearing real makeup and I was so excited that my mom had finally let me!! That was about 8 years ago and my passion for all things beauty has only grown.  Throughout the years I have learned many tips and tricks when it comes to beauty.  Some I have read from magazines or blogs, watched on YouTube, and others I discovered on my own.

Today I want to share with you my beauty tips and tricks.  I would also like to add that I am not a professional but these are the tips that I have found that work for me and I hope that work for you too.  Enjoy!!

Beauty Tips & Tricks

1. Watch a show while painting your nails.  If you are anything like me, then you get impatient while waiting on your nails to dry.  I would always get super bored and, of course, my nails would then get ruined because I want to do other things.  I started watching Netflix while I do my nails and it makes the waiting time go by super fast so my nails look better.

I received the Number4 Super Comb Prep & Protect in the January Birchbox and while it wasn’t the most exciting product in the box, I was curious to try the product out.
