How is everyones Summer going so far? Currently I am hanging out in my backyard watching my kids play in the sprinklers and drinking sparkling Rosé because sometimes….Mommy needs a cocktail.
Helping me feel good while running around are my samples from PLAY!! This month’s box was themed Beauty Bffs which gave me a little bit of everything. Here are my personal opinions on what I received.
Bite Beauty Lipstick- In Shade Chai
I received another lipstick from them a few months ago and I love the product. This color is more of a mauve/brown nude shade. It goes with everything I really love the sample size. It fits easily in the diaper bag or my pocket if needed. As opposed to my last one this one does not have the same Coca Cola smell to it which makes me like this shade even more. This brand makes fantastic lip colors that last all day. I recommend this to everyone. I give this 10/10
Lancôme Clis Booster XL Super Enhancing Mascara Base
Once upon a time when I first started wearing makeup I was not talented enough to wear/ put on falsies and lets be real they weren’t really that big of a deal back then. That being said I found the mascara primer base to make my baby lashes POP! I don’t know if I was just really not that great at applying or if the formula sucked but what I do know is I had the worst time with it. The base would always break off and fall in my eyes, but I sucked it up because…beauty is pain. This base is actually really nice no break off so no pain. One down side for me is this product dried out really fast. I’m a month in and it’s difficult to even apply anymore. I give this 7/10.
Tarte- Deep Dive Cleansing Gel Rainforest of the Sea
I’m a huge fan of Tarte’s products. This is a vegan face wash that leaves my skin feeling refreshed and looking really clean. The scent is not overwhelming it’s actually quite refreshing. The only negative thing I would say about this is, I wish this sample came with a pump or the bottle was a squeeze bottle. It was such a pain to get out, but not a deal breaker especially for a sample. I give this 10/10.
Moroccan Oil- Protect and Prevent Spray
If you have not jumped on the leave in conditioner train A. You need to get it together and get some or B. I think I may dislike you because of your healthy hair (kidding..kind of). The Moroccan Oil company makes excellent products and this leave in conditioner is no different. The smell reminds me of being on the beach when in reality I’m chilling in my backyard. I give this a 10/10.
Coola- Mineral Sun Silk Cream SPF 30
I am a sunscreen freak I love being outside when it’s warm, but I’d like to make sure I skip the sun damage. This face sunscreen is a very natural brand which is always fantastic. There is no smell so if you are sensitive to smells, this will is an awesome choice. The only thing I did not like about this sunscreen is it leaves a white tint to my face. I’m pale enough I don’t need the extra help. I give this a 5/10
Jo Malone London- Scent Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne
Wonderful scent again making me feel like I’ve spent the day at the beach. When paired with the Brazilian Bum Bum Creme the scent combo is a dream. Not something I want year round, but for the time being it’s a win for me. I give this a 9/10.
My June box is on it’s way and I cannot wait to see what June brings!
