Let me start with anything cucumber is so soothing for me. Naturally I would want to try “Cool Eyes” from “One bath & body”. I naturally have dark circles (damn those genes). It works like a fiber mask but for your eyes. When you open the packaging, there are two small little masks that go over your lids. It is already saturated in the formulation. One bath & body designed the little mini masks quite well. They resembled little cucumbers that over your eyes. The directions were pretty vague as to what to do once you take them off. I just lightly rubbed it in, in circular motions. Overall it was a pretty good product. My eyes felt refreshed, I’m not all too sure on the combating those under eye halos though.
I was so excited to receive this crate. I had seen sneak peeks and let me tell you, it was getting me anxious. Well it’s finally here. Lets go through each one. Lets begin with the packaging. #Lootcrate as always has wonderful concepts with all their packaging. I am a subscriber for both #Lootanime and their #Sanriocrate. I am a little bit on the addicted side of subscription services. This month’s crate theme was “friendship”. They definitely nailed it with all the products and packing. Every month their boxes turn into something and for this month, it turned into a mailbox, it was super adorable.
The first thing I open of course are the mugs of Hello Kitty and Daniel. The colors were superb for a spring box. The pastel colors really complimented what I opened next. Which were the two small plushies of Hello Kitty and Daniel. They fit just right in the mugs and unlike the pastel colors, they were a bold red and blue combo. They pair are just lovely and sitting pretty on my desk.
Next was the infinite scarf. I loved this too. I have not tried it on yet. I live in Florida and its summer. No way! However, come the 3 seconds of winter we get here, I will be rocking the hell out of that scarf. The scarf is gorgeous. The material is light and something that I can wear down here. Its practical in color as well. Black goes with everything. For being an eye-catching accessories, I am glad that it isn’t too loud with a super-duper amount of character all over. The Twin Stars are the characters for the scarf. The twins are sprinkled through the scarf without overkill. Furthermore, they are just outlined with a holograpic effect that makes it look mesmerizing. Its pretty stunning when worn just right.
Omg! The pin set!! They are just adorable. The pair featured for this was Patty and Jimmy. I am not really familiar with them but the pin set was beautiful. The craftmanship was wonderful. Then there was a Melody charm. The charm was so cute and I added it to my key chain. Last but not a least a cute little stationary set to write letters to your friends. I have that too on my desk. It’s just the cutest stuff. I really loved this months crate and I am looking forward to many more.
I don’t nessecarily have curly hair, however, I don’t have straight either. Honestly my hair is hard to manage and half the time I just want to put my hair up in a top knot and call it a day. On other days I just want too chop it off.
I first learned of the brand Ouidad through Ipsy. I have a subscription addiction,lol. Nevertheless, I tried this little sample oil they sent. Its supposed to help with frizz. I looked up their site and noticed for the most part everything is for people with curly hair. Don’t let that scare you though. You don’t need a ringlet of curls to use them.
Ouidad climate control gel is what caught my interest. My hair is curly/wavy. I am not sure how to describe it. Not to mention the years of damage that my hair has taken. What can I say? I get bored. Then I live in Florida, which is the humidity capitol of the US. I have a lot of things going against me here.
Now here’s the real deal… You HAVE to use as directed if not it won’t work as well as it should. Just simply applying to damp hair, and scrunch while drying with a diffuser is not going to cut it. Here is a quick step by step:
- Divide damp hair into sections.
- Spread a nickel size dallop to each section.
- Begin at the nape of neck and rake fingers through under sections.
- When finished, hold the ends of hair in each section and shake to create the curls.
- Let hair air dry (My option… I’m just lazy) or blow dry with a diffuser.
