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.

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

Glossy Box July 2012 Review

Image

Hey Fruggies,

I know I’m late but I’m playing catch up with my Glossy box reviews I went on vacation and fell behind. So I have to start off by saying I was disappointed with this box. Seeing how good the previous two boxes were and then to get a box full of Walmart products was not impressive.

So this is the entire box of products for July and right when I seen Dove body wash I was like are you kidding me. I would of rather Bath & Body Works or Victoria’s Secret body wash, Dove is so blah and generic and not a luxury item. Its a drugstore/Walmart item, the positive is it was a full size

Image

Dove softening creme body wash was full size 200ml bottle and retails for $5.99. It says you get visibly more beautiful smooth and soft skin in a week. I tried it and my opinion is it’s nothing special its very creamy and does not really lather. Its a typical shower cream.

Image

Zoya nail polish full size product it retails for $8.00. When I seen the Zoya nail polish I was excited I love nail polish. I was familar with Zoya because the spa I go to only uses their polishes. Its a great brand and lasts long, the negative is I did not like the color I got it does not compliment my skin tone :(. However this was the best item in box.

Image

Alessandro International pedix heel rescue balm deluxe sample size 30ml. The full size is 100ml and retails for $19.95. Therefore the sample size is worth about $6. This balm protects and nourishes your skin it has shea butter and tea tree oil.

Beautysoclean sanitizer wipes sample size (5 pads) value approximately $1.30. The full size comes with 48 wipes for $12.50. These wipes can be used to sanitize  lipstick, lip gloss, compacts etc. It removes debris, lint, food particles etc.I did not like this product reminds me of alcohol wipes.

Image

John Frieda Frizz-Ease Strength Serum deluxe sample size 24ml approximate value $7.50. The full size is 50ml and retails for $14.99. This is a well known brand for curly hair products and can be found at any drugstore or Walmart. It transforms coarse,frizzy curly hair for a sleek, shiny and polished look. I have natural hair which is curly and I have not tried this as yet. I will try it soon and see if it smoothes out my frizz.

Image

Eucerin Calming creme sample tube. The full size product retails for $12.00 for 200 grams. This product was actually missing from my box. I contacted Glossy box customer service and they wanted me to take pictures etc for a tiny sample so I said forget it. I did not get to try this sample so I have no opinion on it. However, there was a $2.00 off coupon included in the box and I love coupons 🙂

Image

My overall impression of the July 2012 Glossy Box was unimpressive it consisted of drugstore/Walmart products with the exception of the Zoya polish. I must say the best product was the Zoya nail polish because its a great brand and used in spa’s and salons. Glossy Box has been fantastic the last 2 months I guess this is just one of those rare flops. I hope its better next month, but overall the value of $15 is still worth it. The total product value for this month’s box is $28,79. Which is still good because you could not get all these products for $15 in a store. I still recommend Glossy box to my frugalista’s it gives you a chance to try new beauty items and get a variety of things worth way more than what you pay ($15 a month). If your interested I have a 10% off your first box link your first box will be only $13.50 and you can cancel anytime.The code is  GLOSSY41 to get 10% off. Have a great day Frugalista’s 😀

Wet n Wild Megalast Review

Image

Hey Frugalista’s

I recently fell in love with the Wet N Wild Megalast long wear nail polish line. These polishes are cheap and affordable range from $1.49-$1.99. These polishes go on nice, last average 5 days and has a nice shine. It is a very good quality despite the price I would compare the quality to salon brand polishes. I have on “on a trip” it is a purple/blue color. I absolutely love it and it has not chipped so far, I have been wearing it for 3 days. Frugalista’s this is a major steal for the price and quality your getting. Go on and try it!

My stubby little fingers lol! But look at the Shine and Color 😀

NYC Shiny Clear Polish Review

Image

Hey Frugalista’s

So I went to target this week and I picked up the NYC  Extra Shiny topcoat #271. I really needed a new clear polish and I had a coupon to top it off so I thought I was getting a steal. The NYC Extra Shiny topcoat was $0.94 and I had a $0.50 off coupon on any NYC product. Therefore, I paid $0.44 which was great at the time! This coupon is available on Target.com by the way if  your interested in saving some money. So you know I love a bargain and was happy about the price. I painted my nails and used the NYC top coat, the next day my polish was stripping off 😦 . My mom also used it on her nails for just a clean natural manicure and hers was chipping off the next day as well. Therefore, the NYC  Extra Shiny topcoat is not a great product, I would not recommend it at all! As they say you get what you paid for lol! I will say I used other NYC cosmetic products such as the liquid eyeliner and mascara and it was great! Just thought I would share 😀

xoxo

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
