Spring is upon us, right? Chicago’s weather takes us on an emotional roller coaster every year. 65 and sunny one day and 22and snowy the next. This can cause some serious stress. Relax, regroup, and rejuvenate with this month’s box.
Take some time out of your busy schedule and give your skin some serious pampering. The introductory kit came with a soothing refiner & cleanser, botanical peeling gel, chlorophyll lifting mask, and firming collagen day cream. I cleansed with the refiner and cleanser; applied the peeling gel cautiously, avoiding dry areas and eyes; applied the lifting mask; and finished with the day cream. I generously scrubbed with the cleanser and felt very clean after. After allowing the peeling gel to sit on for about 5 minutes, I worked the gel into my skin using circular motions and rinsed with warm water. I then applied the lifting mask to dry skin in a thin layer. When the mask was dry, I washed it off with warm water and the remainder of the soothing refiner and cleanser. After insuring my face was completely clean, I massaged the day cream on working in upward, circular motions (I do this with all moisturizers. It feels great, and stimulates blood flow. It’s an easy way to wind down at the end of the day or wake yourself in the morning feeling refreshed.) My skin felt great after using the collection. #eslor
Beauty trends come and go rather quickly, but having soft, smooth skin never goes out of style. This body cream left my skin feeling heavenly. It felt luxurious as I was applying it, and my skin felt soft and healthy all day and into the night. I love the smell, and the organic oil and aloe vera in the cream. It didn’t just cover my skin with a greasy coat. It really penetrated and softened my skin. I carry with my in my jacket pocket everywhere I go now. #EliteTheraputics
I love having full lashes, but I hate wearing false lashes. Scandalous mascara went on cleanly, few to no clumps, and lasted the majority of my hectic day. I applied about 5 coats after curling my lashes. They looked great after 2 coats, but I always apply a couple of extra for safe measure. About 12 hours after applying, the mascara started to flake. BB5 sent the mascara in the full-size, so I’m still happily using Scandalous. #nanacoco
Styli-Style Line & Seal Twist Mechanical Eye Liner | Retail: $4.99 0.01 oz
Eye liner can be tricky to apply especially when getting into winged looks. Liquid liners can be messy, and pencils can be too hard to work with. I found this cream liner to be very easy to work with. It glides on smoothly, so any look you’re going for is quickly attainable. It smudged a little later on in the day, but the color stayed vibrant and the line of the wing I created was still visible. #StyliStyle
Spring is full of fun lip colors, and this gloss certainly packs a punch. It’s highly pigmented and not sticky. It looks great on its own or on top of lip stick or liner. I wore a couple of times on it’s own and once over a pink lip liner. The color and shine lasted a couple of hours in both scenarios. The only thing that turned me off was the purfume-y smell. Aside from that, I’m a fan. #nanacoco
