July Hits and Misses

I know I say it every month and I will probably continue to say it but WHEH! This month flew by!! It seems like the older you get the quicker the time flies by. So I do not have near as much as last month. In June I had purchased lots of products and tested them out. This month I have a few but not near as many. Okay so let’s jump in!Screen Shot 2017-08-02 at 9.38.31 AM

  1. Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask- Lately my lips have been getting so chapped between the heat and the excessive testing of lip products. This is the one product that is truly amazing! I put it on at night and my lips are super moisturized and healed in the morning. This is a must have product for me!
  2. Mont Bleu Nail tools- I was able to test these products out recently and they are truly amazing and stunning. Studded in swarovski crystals they are beautiful to look at and have made a big difference in my nail routine!
  3. Colourpop Fem Rosa collection- OMG colourpop has done it again. Super affordable and beautiful color pay off. The lips are fantastic and the eyeshadows are a creamy dream.
  4. Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Pore Purifying 2-in-1 Clay Cleanser/mask- Last month I told you about a facial cleanser that I didn’t like at all, well this month I found one that I actually enjoy. I love that it doubles as a mask and it keeps my skin really clear.
  5. Munchkin weighted straw sippy cup- Okay so I threw one in for my moms out there. I haven’t added a baby one in a while because well I hadn’t had anything new to try out besides food. But these sippy cups are awesome! Because of the straw and the way everything attaches there are no leaks!!

For the misses this month I only have 2.

  1. Take and Toss sippy cups- These bad boys work… but they leak so badly!! Only put water in them if you decide to use them.
  2. E.L.F. toner- This toner was nothing special.. didn’t really do much for my skin so I don’t think it would be a repurchase.

That’s it for this month! Let me know what you loved and didn’t in the comments so I can try some new things out!!!

June Hits and Misses

I am SO sorry that this did not get posted earlier! The family and I made a spontaneous trip to Florida for the 4th of July weekend. We stayed with some friends and I didn’t have much time to edit or write! The weekend was supposed to storm and so I brought my computer and it ended up being beautiful and sunny the whole weekend. Check out my youtube video to see the complete list of hits and misses! Click Here!

So let’s jump right in to these Hits and Misses!

Screen Shot 2017-07-05 at 7.14.13 AMFirst up is the beauty shield collection from ELF Cosmetics! I absolutely love this line. I have been using it everyday since I received it and OMG my skin looks amazing! and I love the way it smells. Screen Shot 2017-06-29 at 3.36.22 PM Next up is the Jaclyn Hill X Morphe palette. I won’t repeat myself from my last post but this palette is amazing so definitely try to get your hands on it!

Screen Shot 2017-07-05 at 7.34.50 AMI really enjoyed this exfoliator! I have been wanting to try a stick exfoliator and so I purchased this one and really liked it. I haven’t decided it I would repurchase it but it is definitely a hit for this month!!Screen Shot 2017-07-05 at 7.35.41 AM Last one for my hits is the Boscia Jelly Ball Cleanser. OMG it is soo cool and weird and I just love it!

On to the Misses…

Screen Shot 2017-07-05 at 7.16.41 AMSo first up on the misses is this makeup drop silicone blender. First off it does not blend at all. Maybe I am not using it correctly but after trying it I was very disappointed. It does save product by not absorbing it I suppose but it is definitely not worth the 20$

Screen Shot 2017-07-05 at 7.17.05 AMThis mascara, Manna Kadar Beauty, was nothing special to me. I received it in my beautycon box and I was not impressed. The brush is way too big and you can not get your bottom lashes with it unless you are prepared to make a mess. And for 29$ I would definitely not purchase this mascara!!

Screen Shot 2017-07-05 at 7.17.19 AMAnother item I was not overly impressed with was this eyeliner by Jonteblu. It is a beautiful color but just didn’t glide on my eyes as easily as I would have loved it too. But it was only 5$ so not a terrible price by any means!!

Alright guys that is it for this time. I have lots of ideas coming up so definitely stay tuned and leave me comments about what you were loving or not loving last month!!!!

May’s Hits and Misses

I didn’t try out a ton of new products in the month of may so this won’t be a long list. Next month tho will be a doozy! I have placed some online orders and there are some more launches coming in June that I have to get my hands on!

So on to the hits and misses: Let’s start with what was a hit!

First off I have been 100% OBSESSED with this moisturizer for Baby K. Eucerin Baby Eczema Relief Body Creme. Get this NOW! If your baby has dry skin at all this will banish it so quickly! And no baby does not have to have eczema in order to use this. I even use it on my self. I have gone through every baby moisturizer on the market and this stuff is the bomb dot com.

Okay so I know I have mentioned this before but the body moisturizer that I have created for the stretch mark remedy is my newest love. It is a solid moisturizer so I am still working on ways to package it but it literally melts into the skin and smells amazing. I love it so much!

Lastly for my hits is a hair tool/accessory. The Beachwaver Co. The Wrap Up has been my go to for doing my hair lately. My husband got promoted and we had an awards banquet to go to and I needed to look nice for these events other than my usual messy bun and yoga pants. If you know me at all you would know I have super long thick hair and I HATE styling it. This little guy allows me to create the perfect bun with no effort.

Misses: I really only have one that I tried out this month and it is from Burts Bees Baby. I know there are those people out there who love burts bees products but I wasn’t a huge fan. I used the baby wash while on vacation and I found it very liquidy which I didn’t like. I like using a thicker wash on Baby K. I also am not in love with the smell.. Oh well win some and lose some.

 

What products were you loving or not loving this past month?! Let me know!!

April Hits and Misses

Y’all know I love to try new products and so this is Aprils hits and misses for momma and baby!

My first one I have to talk about is for baby! I am 100% obsessed and in love with Baby Dove Tip to Toe Wash, Rich Moisture 13 oz. This baby wash is sooooo great! I have noticed baby K is less dry and smells so great all day long like a baby should!! I normally enjoy using aveeno for baby or johnsons but dove has taken over my baby’s bathroom!!

The next product i am loving for baby is a highchair. I bought it from target, it is the evenflo convertible high chair. You can check it out here! I love it because my little one does not like laying down anymore. He always wants to be sitting up and this highchair isn’t just great for feeding but it breaks down to make a chair and table. I love this plus it was inexpensive!!!

Now on to mom:

As you saw in my previous post I am lovinggggg lots of new elf products so I won’t repeat myself on that.

I have been using the Palmers cocoa butter formula skin therapy oil on my legs and butt for skin tone and stretch marks. I can tell a difference when I use consecutively but not if I skip a day or two. It smells amazing tho. The only other negative I can say is that it instructs to reapply many times throughout the day and even being a stay at home mom I don’t have the time to reapply 3 or 4 times a day. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know!!

Cupshe swimsuits! OMG. So I saw these suits on pinterest and as a woman who just had a baby and doesn’t have a personal trainer to whip my butt back in pre-baby shape I have been struggling to find a swim suit that makes me look good and feel good without feeling like a grandma. Cupshe has done just that for me. I was still able to get a bikini that covered my booty but still made me feel great! all at only 23$!!!

Lastly for the hits I recently bought a fitbit to keep myself motivated to stay active. I can do challenges with my friends and being super competitive I am constantly doing laps around the house to beat them!

Misses::::::: So I did purchase the Jeffree Star X Manny collab bundle. I have to say I am not that impressed with the highlighter.It has a strange texture and It seems to me that I have to layer and layer to get a decent glow. Im not trying to blind people but I definitely want it to show up! The lipsticks are great but the colors do oxidize a bit compared to what you see in the bottle. The highlighter is a miss for me tho, sad to say.

I love real techniques but I tried there brush cleaner and I have to admit it didn’t work for me. It was a total miss sadly. Going back to my philosphy to was my brushes!

What did you love and not love this month?? Let me know!
