I recently got this mask and ear plugs free to review and it came at the perfect timing! I usually use a silk like (zebra print) sleep mask every night. I have severe insomnia and the littlest amount of noise or light wakes me up or keeps me awake. Lately my original sleep mask was just not cutting it and it kept falling off in the middle of the night and it allowed too much light in. So, when I had the chance to review this mask, I jumped on it!
Inside the pack you get a sleep mask, a pair of high quality ear plus, and a convenient carry pouch that has draw strings.
WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT IT:
- Fall asleep faster- light weight and breathable
- Sleep in comfort- your eyes won't touch fabric
- Easy to wear- adjustable head strap
- Convenient- folds small, perfect for travel
- Hygienic- washable time and time again
USE: Perfect for anyone that is having trouble sleeping, great for travelers, hospital patients, night shifters and moms and dads who want to sleep during the day.
WHAT I SAY ABOUT IT:
Right away I had to laugh at the look of the mask. Its obvious that you will look a little funny with this on. However, how you look does NOT matter especially if your an insomniac or light sleeper like I am. Its very soft and very well made. The straps are a Velcro fitting and there are no snags or sharp edges. Its super adjustable as it fit my 8 year old daughter AND my husband (who has a huge head). Its easy to get on and stayed on all night. It does not let in one spec of light. The ear plugs works amazingly and I really like how they sell them as a kit. The pouch makes it super easy to travel with without losing anything. I absolutely love everything about this product and i truly believe they care about their customers and put great effort into making a product that not only works, but is convenient and practical.
Would I recommend this product? 100% Without a doubt
Cons: The strap can get stuck in your hair if your not careful. Just make sure your hair is out of the way before adjusting the straps. (Not really even a con, more like my mistake LOL)
I would definitely recommend you check out this company and try this mask if your in the market for a good sleep mask!

I've been hearing a lot about the Glam Glow Mud Mask around YouTube. I've seen a lot of videos on how great this product is. I was recently sent a sample of the mask and wanted to review it for you all. The one I tested out was the black tube, YouthMud Tingle Exfoliate Treatment. I tried this out this morning so I could remember everything I felt about it correctly and fresh in my mind. So, let's get right into this review!
Price: $69.00 for 1.7 fl oz.
If I look worried in this picture, it's because I am!! Haha! The mud has a nice smell but has the same consistency as actually mud. Its watering at first and then really thick and grainy. It also has chunks of things in it (as you can see in the picture). It does dry pretty quickly which is a refreshing change from some other masks that take a long time to dry. The more it dries, the more you get a warm tingling sensation on your skin. At one point, it can be a little overwhelming, especially for people with sensitive skin or eyes. The tingling sensation (which is more of a burning sensation) does stop rather quickly though. At that point, my mask was completely dry and the tingling stopped, so I went to go remove it.
The directions say to rub it off in circular motions with water when removing the mask. This is because the mask has an exfoliater in it that is activated by water. When I did this, I used a wash cloth and got it super soaked and rub it lightly in circular motions on my face. The exfoliates are pretty harsh. It really hurt towards the end. Around my nose and my forehead still have red marks on them. I ended up splashing water on my face trying to get the rest of the exfoliates off and still ended up with what felt like sand around my face. They brushed off easily after my face was dry though.
My face did feel really soft and smooth after. My only thing is, it feels soft and smooth after using a $5.00 mask as well!
While the mud mask is nice and does work. For me, it held nothing special enough for the price tag it holds. I've used other masks (without chunks of crap in them) that have made my face feel just as good and worked just as well for $60 less. I would use any sample I got from them because it DOES work, but I would NOT buy the full size.
I hope this helped you! Feel free to share your experience with a Glam Glow mask! Leave me a comment!! Xoxo

When I saw this product, I just HAD to review it! I'm all about organic, cruelty free products! Let me tell you some facts about this company.
Pura D'or :
1. For more than 4 years this companies mission has been to produce organic personal care products that work!
2. All of their ingredients are grown on trees, not in a test tube in a lab.
3. They are Cruelty Free
4. They are USDA approved Organic and Dr. Trusted!
5. They have FREE SHIPPING anywhere in the continental U.S.
6. They are #1 on Amazon's Shampoo & Conditioners!
7. They have NO harsh chemicals, no SLS, and NO parabens!
I received these products free to review and could not of been more excited! I received the "Argan Oil Hair Loss Prevention Therapy Shampoo", the " Argan Oil Lavender and Vanilla Conditioner", and the "Argan Oil", to review. My opinions are 100% honest and my own and always will be! So lets get started!
Argan Oil Premium Organic Shampoo (Hair Loss Prevention Therapy) :
This shampoo is free of SLS, parabens, DEA, gluten, artificial colors, artificial fragrances and harsh chemicals. It is for thinning hair, receding hair lines and excessive shedding! It claims that it:
- has 12 Advanced DHT Blockers to stop premature hair loss
- Adds Body, Increases Volume, and Thickens Hair
- Its for all hair types, men, women and color safe!
My Personal Review:
I was SO excited to try this shampoo out. Mostly because I have some SERIOUS shedding. When I get stressed out my hair falls out in chunks! Plus, I just naturally lose a lot of hair between showering and brushing that had led to my hair thinning out A LOT! My husband also had a receding hair line so he was quite interested in trying this shampoo out as well!
I used this shampoo right away and the first thing I noticed about it was the smell. It does have a menthol smell. Almost like T-Gel shampoo for dandruff! The smell however, does NOT stay in your hair after shampooing. The second thing I noticed was it has a light tingling sensation when your washing your hair. My husband noticed that as well. I absolutely LOVED that because it really made me feel like it was cleaning my hair AND my scalp. It didn't leave my hair feeling like straw, which is something I find a lot of shampoos do. Now, my experience with this shampoo.. I used it THREE times and my hair loss from shower to brushing severely reduced! I was completely shocked! It went from being a handful of hair each time, to just a tiny amount that you lose naturally. My Husband also noticed that his hair seemed fuller and brighter, which he loved. The one bottle is a 3-Month supply so, we will continue to use this shampoo because so far, we are LOVING it!
Argan Oil Premium Organic Conditioner (Lavender Vanilla):
This conditioner, like the shampoo, claims that it:
- Enhances shine, manageability, and control
- Its Gentle, Natural, and Nourishing
- Its made with 99% vegetable ingredients
My Personal Review:
After smelling the shampoo I was curious how the conditioner would smell. So, that was the first thing I did! AHHH!! Ladies!! The smell of this conditioner just about SOLD me on this product alone! It smells like heaven. No joke. Its thick and creamy. Almost like a body butter lotion. I have yet to find something that stands up to the conditioner I use now but, I can tell you honestly, I may never stop using this conditioner! It made my hair feel SO soft. The frizz issue I have was diminished from the FIRST use. The smell stayed in my hair for days! My husband used it too and he said " My hair feels like a teddy bear". I could brush through my hair with ease after showering and that is a big selling point for me. The fact that its organic and made mostly of vegetable products and STILL works this amazing, has us completely sold!
Argan Oil (Body,Hair, and Face Treatment):
This argan oil is imported from Morocco. Its USDA Organic and is pure, natural, and cruelty free. It states:
" Pura d'or organ oil is produced using the highest standards in the industry. Argan oil is imported from South Western Morocco. Cold pressed, unrefined with no chemicals added. Safe for all types of skin, hair, and nails." It came in a recyclable cloth pouch with directions on how to use it on recyclable paper.
My Personal Review:
There is no smell to this oil which is nice. Its not greasy and sinks in immediately. I use it on my heel bone where I get dry and cracked skin in the winter. I also used it on my nails and in my hair. It claimed to help strengthen nails, help with dry and brittle hair AND dandruff (huge plus for me), and it soothes damaged skin. All which I need badly right now! Theres a reason they call this " Liquid Gold". So far, it has helped with my dandruff 100%. My scalp is not itchy or flaky. It works better than my dandruff shampoo! My heel is mending and the crack is heeling so its definitely working there and my nails have no chipped or broke since I've used this product. It may be just good luck on my part, but I doubt it. I chip or break a nail daily haha!
Do I think these products are worth it? YES!
Would I recommend these products? YES!
And Cons? Depending on your financial placement, these products may be a bit pricier than your used to, but in my opinion, coming from a broke girl, they are COMPLETELY worth it!

A lot of people have been doing their makeup inventories with the new year! I jumped on that train and did a tag video on my makeup inventory on my YouTube channel. Ill have the link to that down below if you want to check that out! Now, in that video I specified how many eyeshadows I had but not by color. I think its really important to also point out how many of the SAME colored eyeshadows we have! Now, I am not categorizing these by finishes or anything just strictly on the colors. So, lets get started and see how many of the same shadow colors I actually own!
1.Flesh Colored Shadow (Cream Color)- 17
2. Brown- 62
3. White- 30
4. Black- 18
5. Pink- 29
6. Green- 19
7. Blue- 16
9. Silver (Grey)- 26
10. Purple- 25
11. Red- 14
12. Orange- 8
13. Yellow- 5
I think, in the end, I have way too many of the same colors. Haha. Of course, in my opinion, its justified because most have different finishes or are not the EXACT same shade of that specific color. But, 62 shades of brown? REALLY? Also, out of those 18 shades or black, only ONE is a different finish. This include the individual shadows in my palettes as well so getting the same colors is not always a choice but i can definitely say, I dont think I need anymore eye shadows than what I have! Do you have an eyeshadow hoarding issue as well? Whats your most hoarded eyeshadow?

I got sent this serum free to review! I was super excited about reviewing this too because I have been searching for a new and GOOD serum lately! I am not required to give a positive review. All opinions are my own and my husbands own.
The first thing I noticed, and liked, about this product is the first product mentioned in the ingredients, which is Proprietary Organic Skin Tea. Usually, if a product is not that good for you, you can tell from looking at the first or second ingredient on the back of the product. The second ingredient is Organic Aloe Leaf. It also states on the back of the box the specific ingredients of importance and what those ingredients specifically do for your skin. The ingredients are, Organic Rosehip Oil, Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil, Resistem, Hyaluronic Acid (botanical), and Green Tea Extract. I could go on and on with the organic ingredients that this product is made of! So, that was a plus right from the start for me!
Now, this product states that it is an antioxidant treatment that:
- Evens skin tone
- Increases glow & radiance
- Absorbs rapidly
- Boosts collagen Production
- Reduces wrinkles & fine lines
- Reduces Pores
The product is 20% Vitamin C as well and has no alcohol or parabens in it! It is also suitable for ALL skin types!
So, I had my husband test this product out with me because I have normal oily skin and he has sensitive oily skin. I wanted to see how this serum would fair with sensitive skin as well.
Now, if you have a strong dislike of "orange" smells or citrus smells, this product may not be for you. When you smell the product in the bottle it has a very fresh smell of oranges. My husband and I agree though, that once applied and dried, it forms a different scent to it that is light and sweet. I'm guessing this is because of the other organic products within it. So, the citrus smell does not last on your skin. I personally do not mind either of the smells and my husband likes them as well.
The directions say to wash and pat your face dry. Then, apply a SMALL amount to your face and neck daily. It also says to allow it to dry BEFORE applying your daily moisturizer. Which is exactly what my husband and I did. When we first applied it, it feels really cool and soothing on your skin. It spreads easily and sinks in quickly. It can come off slightly sticky at first (from the vitamin C) but that goes away very quickly. The first thing we noticed right away was that our faces felt tight. I love a product that has results like that right away. It also soaked up the oils on our faces which my husband was pretty shocked over. If you have dry skin to begin with, I would suggest ALWAYS applying a moisturizer after this product because it may enhance your dry spots. Another thing we noticed after the SECOND day of applying this serum is that our faces were not oily but, really DID have this "Glow" to it. It looks like we just applied a moisturizer even hours after applying the product to our faces. As for the "evens skin tone" and "reduces fine lines and wrinkles", SO far the results are minimal but we ARE starting to notice a change. My forehead frown wrinkles I have are starting to dissipate in the middle, where they were most faint. Around my nose where I had slight redness is GONE. I still have my deeper wrinkles in my forehead and more redness on my cheeks but we have only been using the product for a week. I think the biggest change for me is that my pores actually look smaller! FINALLY! A product that literally minimizes my pores! It looks like the serum actually fills them in and even without makeup on they are smaller! That was my biggest selling point. My husband of course, has NO wrinkles because he stinks hahaha. He does however, have redness and he is increasingly impressed by not only the redness going down but his acne has been less frequent and that is not even something it states on the bottle that is does! Plus, his pores have minimized as well and hes pretty impressed himself. My husband and I will continue to use this product until the whole bottle is gone and I will report back if anything changes.
So, my final review of this product is that it obviously works and quite quickly in my opinion and my husbands. It is without a doubt, one of the better serums we have used. It does retail for $35.00 but, for a serum that works and works quickly and consistently the price is AMAZING. I've personally seen serums that I have sampled that do not do as much as quickly for double or triple the price. You also get free shipping with your order of this serum on Amazon. The product also lasts for a long time, if used properly so, spread over time the $35.00 price tag is NOTHING. My husband and I would completely say this is a great product and we will be using it ourselves and repurchasing it when needed. You can't go wrong with something that has 98% natural ingredients these days! Plus, it does the one thing I needed the most and that is, minimizing my pores! Thank you Valentia!! Great product!

I recently got sent these items, for free, to review! I contacted them a while ago and was super excited that they got back to me and said they would send me out some things to review! The first company to allow me to do that! The woman I talked to was so friendly and nice and got back to me within an hour of me e-mailing her each time!
The items you are seeing here were all under $10 together! PLUS, the store offers WORLD WIDE FREE SHIPPING! You absolutely can NOT beat that! Most websites from over seas has cheap products but the shipping really gets you! Not this website! They offer items such as jewelry, makeup, nail art, clothing, contact lens, sports wear, phone cases and ON AND ON! They even have a 0.99 section! They have something for EVERYONE!
I specifically reviewed their jewelry section. I got a 4 piece midi ring set, a bracelet, and a necklace. She said it would take 4-5 weeks for me to receive my package and it took less than two weeks! So shipping is amazing as well! Everything was packaged very well!
Now, I have to say, the quality on these pieces are AMAZING for the price. I honestly thought it would have a dollar store quality but it does not! Most of these pieces have the same quality you would find in Claires or Target for a quarter of the price! The ring set cost $2.99, the necklace cost $2.67 and the bracelet cost $2.99! The necklace is so beyond beautiful and so well made. The stones are places correctly and are not coming off! The chain is GREAT quality and looks like something i would pay between $15-30 dollars for! The rings dont turn your fingers green or make them itch. There are different color choice and looks for each piece i got. The necklace comes in three other colors and the bracelet comes in an assortment of different styles and colors! The midi ring set is one of MANY styles they have!
For anyone who knows me, knows I am a very honest person and I can honestly say, I will be purchasing from this site! It may be my new favorite online store! I have no found one bad things about them. I also want that necklace in a couple different colors. hahaha! I have a coupon code for any of you who would like to buy from the site! This coupon code does not give me any money if you use it but, they may send me out more products if you use it with your purchase! Its for 10% off your order! Use code PHYT10!! Let me know if you have purchased from this company and what your thoughts were on them! I can say, for me, I am in love!!!
