INFLUENSTER- SALLY HANSEN COMPLETE MANICURE

INFLUENSTER- SALLY HANSEN COMPLETE MANICURE

Hey Frugalista’s!

I have been M.I.A. for a while, I got caught up with my YouTube channel and life. I am glad to be back! I was sent the Sally Hansen Complete Manicure box from Influenster. Sally Hansen Complete Manicure offers 7 benefits in one bottle. This new line has base coat, strengthener, growth treatment, color, top coat, chip resistant and a gel shine finish in every bottle.

Sally Hansen Complete Manicure Swatches

I love this line, the polish dries faster than the typical nail polish. It dries with a glossy shine and is long lasting. I currently, have on the “pat on the black” and i’m on my 7th day and it’s just starting to chip. I would definitely recommend this line to anyone, the price is average I bought a pink shade months ago for $6.99. I must add the brush provides a smooth and even application. My favorite shade is jaded which is the mint green on the right : )

Shades from left to right:
Red my lips 470, Pat on the black 510, Jaded 540

Great Deal : Wet N Wild Redmond Red Nail Polish

Image

Hey frugalista’s!

I bought the Wet N Wild Redmond Fast Dry nail polish at Walgreens for only $1.49. Plus I had a $1 off coupon from the Sunday newspaper a few weeks back. Therefore I paid $0.49 plus tax.:) This nail polish does dry pretty fast which I love. Also the red is so vibrant, it’s a nice bright red which I love. Red is a sexy color and it stands out. This nail polish lasted a long time without going chipped and had a nice gloss to it. I would highly recommend it, and there is a wide selection of colors. I must say Wet N Wild has stepped up their nail polish game up. This fast dry line is a must try and the price is so right lol.

JUNE 2012 GLOSSY BOX REVIEW

ImageHey Frugalista’s

I received my June 2012 Glossy box a few weeks ago. This month Glossy Box was another winner! There were plenty full size products which is what I always love. The theme of the June box was summer! It had summer essentials in this months box. They gave us a razor to have smooth sexy legs for the summer, Wella Ocean spritz hair spray for sexy beach curls. Also, sunscreen to protect our skin from those harmful rays, face cleanser to freshen up, dual lipstick to have many sexy lip color combinations for the summer.

Image

Image

The first Item is the Gillette Venus Embrace Razor value of $13.43. I LOVE this razor I have been using it prior to receiving it in the Glossy Box. This razor is a bit pricey but its worth the money. It has 5 blades and around the razor its cushioned with a gel foam. Also, there is a moisture strip above the blades which is great. One of the best things about this razor is you can buy the replacement heads at a drugstore or walmart. You get a really nice close and smooth shave. This razor alone almost pays for the box it self.

Image

The second item is the Biore 4 in 1 Revitalizing Cleanser, its value is $9.99 and its 200ml. This is another full size product, Biore has a good line of facial products. I have used some in the past and loved them. However, I had never tried this cleanser until I got my Glossy Box. This cleanser is a 4 in 1 it purifies, cleanses, tones and refreshes your skin. I can tell you it is definitely refreshing it leaves a nice clean minty fresh feeling. After you wash your face it feels like all the impurities and make up is lifted and my face felt lighter. This cleanser is a pump bottle and it foams up with water. I would recommend  this product!

Image

The third product is the Cover Girl Blast Flipstick-Blendable lip duo. This product is also full size and the value is $12.50 it is 3.8gr in size. This is the product I was most excited about in my box. This Cover Girl Flipstick is new and when I received it, it was not even available in Canada at the time. It was super exciting being the first to try an item before it was available to others. Glossy Box gave me the perfect shade I got the 800 Whisper murmure color. At one end its a baby pink/mauve color the other end is a luminous pink with a little gold shimmer in it. The lipstick is very smooth and moisturizing. The great feature of this product is you have 3 lip colors in one lipstick. You can wear each shade alone or you can use both and blend a new color. Cover Girl made a great product and I love it! It’s a double ended lipstick with endless possibilities! This product almost covers the price of the box alone.

Image

Image

I have been wearing this lipstick every day since I got it 😀

Image

My fourth item is the Wella Professionals Ocean Spritz its a 150mL bottle which is full size! The value is $16.99 this product alone pays for the box. I love high end hair products however, I do not use spritz and hairsprays in my hair 😦 Moreover, we all know Wella is a great salon brand with great products. I cannot give my personal opinion because I have not tried the product. The information booklet says that it gives chunky texture for that carefree beachy hair look. An information booklet came with it telling you have to achieve the beach curls. Wella is exclusively available at salons.

Image

This picture shows this month there was 4 full sized products which is an excellent value each of these items either pay for the box it self or close to.

Image

The June Glossy Box had 3 actual sample size samples this month. The above picture shows the 3 sample products. First sample is the Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strip most of us are familiar with this product it has been out for years. You apply it to your nose and it removes blackheads and whiteheads. Its a good product, there was 1 strip in this months box. If your interested in purchashing these strips it is $9.99 for 8strips in a package.That makes the one strip in the box worth $1.25.

The second sample is Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex 7ml. This product I was not excited about I am too young for wrinkle cream I feel it was not suited for me. Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex is an anti-aging formula. It has advanced micro-fillers to smooth fine lines. It contains BioPeptide and B3 complex it hydrates and improves the appearance of deep lines in 14 days.The sample can be used maybe 3-4 times the cost for a 50mL bottle would cost $30.99. The value of this sample would be approximately $4. I tried it and It has no scent and honestly it did not feel amazing on my skin nor was it creamy.

The third and last sample was Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen Lotion SPF55. This sample size was pretty good 14 ml,it is travel size perfect for a vacation. This sunscreen is voted #1 for best feeling sunscreen by Canadian Dermatologists. I actually had a skin damage test done years ago and the Dermatologist recommended this sunscreen so I totally believe that claim. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry- Touch sunscreen is very light and it asborbes fast. It does not feel heavy and greasy like many other suncreens. It contains Helioplex which provides photostable protection from UVA/UBV rays. The cost for this product is $15.99 for an 88ml bottle. Therefore, the value of the sample is $2.66, I would recommend this product for sure.

The June 2012 Glossy Box was another excellent deal for the monthly price of $15. This months total value of all the products is $60.82! That’s a steal! 🙂 I would definetly recommend Glossy box to anyone. The products are great and you get 4-5 full size products as you can see from my previous reviews. Well Frugalista’s If your interested I have a link for you below just copy and paste.

ECOTOOLS BAMBOO 5PC BRUSH SET FIND!

Image

Hey Frugalista’s!

I have a great find that I love! So I have been experimenting trying to find new make up brushes. I came across this brand called Ecotools. They are a earth friendly company, they use natural materials and are 100% cruelty free. I bought the 5 piece Bamboo Brush set, it came with 1 Mineral powder brush, 1 concealer brush, 1 eye shading brush, 1 baby kabuki and comes in a cosmetic bag made out of hemp and cotton. This set is like a travel set but also great for everyday usage. I love how smooth the brushes are they are very plush! The handles of the brushes are made out of bamboo. I use the baby Kabuki to put my blush on and its perfect. I cannot stand rough make up brushes and these are really soft and non irritating. I saw this set in Walmart for $16.98, However, being the frugal diva I am I got mine for $5.61 on Ebay. That’s right! $5.61 lol I made out great! I checked the packaging and everything it is not a knock off. I recommend you try this especially if you want to carry brushes on a trip or in your purse for mid day touch ups. Check out Ebay and get yourself a great deal. Ecotools also has a website I will post below if you want to research it! Enjoy your day Divas! Don’t forget if you have any great finds or freebies please share in the comments 😀

Simple Eye Make-up Remover Review

Image

 

Hey Frugalista’s!

I got a special review request from one of my favorite bloggers The Dolly Blogger to review Simple Eye Make-up Remover. I was originally introduced to Simple products from my Glossy Box beauty subscription. Simple are sensitive skin products, all the products are hypoallergenic and noncomedogenic. Meaning they do not cause skin irritation and are recommended by Dermatologist. My favorite thing about the Simple Eye Make-up Remover is that it is non greasy. It has no scent and leaves no oily residue it is like water. It takes off all of my eye make up without irritation. I have tried other eye make-up removers in the past and they made my eye lids look greasy. This formula is great for any skin, I highly recommend trying it! It is $9.99 for 125 ml bottle
