Whish Body Oil Review

 
Happy Wednesday! Have you heard of Whish Body products? Well if not, I'm here to tell you about an amazing body oil that will leave your skin glowing. The Whish Restoring Body Oil works to soothe, moisturize and restore your skin's natural luminance. I love that it is packaged in a slender and sleek glass bottle that has a pump, it would look lovely sitting on your desk at work, vanity or bathroom counter. 


The Whish Restoring Body Oil is enriched with globuria cordifolia callus extract which increases skin luminance, olive leaf extract and green tea leaf to moisturize and a blend of sesame seed oil to firm skin. It's available in six essential oil based flavors: Almond, Lemongrass, Pomegranate, Lavender, Coconut and Blueberry. I used the Blueberry Whish Body Oil and it did make my skin glow, the blueberry scent is awesome the only thing I noticed it really didn't hydrate my skin like I wanted it to. I normally use lotions and creams on my body to hydrate and moisturize my skin.


You only have to use a little bit of this body oil because pumping too much could get a bit messy. I like this product a lot but I'm thinking I may just use this as a massage oil versus using it as an everyday moisturizer.


All Whish products are Paraben Free, Sulfate Free, TEA & DEA Free, and Petrochemical Free plus its all natural. Oh and their products are not tested on animals. The Whish Restoring Body Oil is available in 3.5 ounce container for $28 at Nordstrom.com.

Spring Trends: Pastels & Lace

Happy Wednesday! Introduce soft pastels and lace to your wardrobe this Spring. Nothing says Spring without a little pastel and lace, cute separates such as skirts, blouses, shorts and cropped pants would be great for everyday wear. I immediately think of Easter and Mother's Day when I see pastel colors, I guess dying eggs for Easter when I was younger kind of reminds me of the colors. The pastels and lace trend is so feminine and would be a great alternative to wearing normal to dark colors in the Spring/Summer months.

Will you introduce pastels and lace to your Spring Wardrobe this year?

First Impression: Mally Beauty

 
Happy Monday! I was sent a couple of Mally Beauty products to try and I'm sharing with you today my First Impression on the Mally Beauty Brand and I am also giving away two Mally Beauty products!! 
I've heard of the Evercolor Poreless Face Defender but was always skeptical to purchase it because I have extremely oily skin and the thought of putting something that looked like wax on my face was out of the question. The Evercolor Poreless Face Defender is sheer and lightweight, it is made to diffuse the look of pores, minimize fine lines and protects your makeup so it will last from morning to night. 


The Evercolor Poreless Face Defender comes in a sturdy compact with mirror and a huge wedge sponge. I was very impressed with that, most compacts are cheaply made but not this one. I would have liked it to have a place for the wedge sponge on the inside but you'll just have to carry that in your makeup bag alone. To apply this product, all you have to do is dab the wedge sponge in the product and just lightly pat it on your face in the areas that has shine or tend to get oily a lot.

The Evercolor Poreless Face Defender takes the place of finishing powder and gives you a matte look depending on your skin combination instead of a dry ashy look from powder. Like I said before, I have extremely oily skin and I was very impressed with the outcome because it took away the oil and gave me a dewy matte finish (if that makes sense) when I wore it with my foundation. I also wore it alone with no foundation because the product goes on clear and it still gave me a matte finish. The Evercolor Poreless Face Defender retails at Ulta for $40 and I would definitely say this product is a winner, I really like it!!
The next two products I tried were Mally High Shine Liquid Lipstick in Party Girl Pink and the Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Eyeliner In Midnight. 


The High Shine Liquid Lipstick is a high performance lipstick pen that's considered a 4-in-1 product that includes lip primer, lipstick, lip gloss and lip liner. It packs a lot of color with a high gloss just like lip gloss. The High Shine Liquid Lipstick goes on thick but really lasts a good amount of the day. It's a pretty thick lipstick pen, I clicked it twice to get the amount of lipstick I wanted for the day. This pen did not let me down, I like the packaging and the color Party Girl Pink is really pretty. It also retails at Ulta for $20 not bad for a quality 4-in-1 lip product.

The Mally Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Eyeliner In Midnight is an eyeliner that goes on easy and literally lasts all day. The color is very dark and it does not smudge. It retails for $15 at Ulta, you can sharpen this eyeliner also.

See my swatches below for the High Shine Liquid Lipstick and The Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Eyeliner.


This is my first time trying Mally Beauty products and I actually like everything that I was sent. I will be making more purchases from the Mally Brand in the near future. Here's a picture of me wearing the Evercolor Poreless Face Defender, High Shine Liquid Lipstick and the Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Eyeliner.

Good Earth Beauty Products

Happy Thursday!! I'm always on the hunt for natural and organic beauty products and I have found a great business that sells just that! Good Earth Beauty is an online business that sells unique beauty, bath & body and hair care products. All of they're products chosen are personally tested by their staff not on animals. Products that I have from Good Earth Beauty is the Pink Lemonade Lip Scrub and the Pink Lemonade Lip Balm.


These two lip products are awesome! The Pink Lemonade Lip Scrub smells just like lemonade the ingredients that make up this product are: sugar, organic sunflower oil, coconut and almond oil, organic shea butter and organic jojoba oil and flavor. 
 
 
To exfoliate my lips, I dabbed a little lip srcub on a damp wash cloth and just went over my lips in a small circular motion, I let it sit on there for a few minutes then I washed it off with warm water. I did this right before bed...hence there's no pictures of this step because I was totally tired and just forgot to snap a few with my camera. However, the next day I decided to swatch it on the back of my hand so you could at least see the consistency of it. It's not greasy, oily or anything like that and it feels pretty good on your skin and lips.


The Pink Lemonade Lip Balm is what I used after the lip scrub.


The ingredients in the Pink Lemonade Lip Balm are: organic sunflower oil, organic shea butter, beeswax, organic cocoa butter and natural flavor oils. This lip balm comes in a convenient sized .25 oz tin and has a wonderful scent. It's not greasy but it has just enough oomph to soothe and moisturize your dry and chapped lips. To use this product, I simply used my ring finger to apply it to my lips. 
 
The Pink Lemonade Lip Balm retails for $4.99 and The Pink Lemonade Lip Scrub retails for $6.99 which are great prices for natural and organic beauty products! Check out other products from Good Earth Beauty at www.goodearthbeauty.com.
