This is the first BB cream that I have ever used. I really wanted to try BB creams, since I think that they provide a good coverage however they feel lighter on the skin compared to foundations. I tired out the Maybelline Dream Pure BB cream which retails for around $8.99 at drugstores. There is actually 2% salicylic acid in this product in order to help treat acne and blemishes as you wear it.
I got the BB cream in the color light/medium. There isn’t that many color choices for this product.
I found that the color light/medium fit my skin pretty well, although I do wish that there were more color choices.
There is a bit of redness on my face without any product, and I have fine spidery veins which are apparent on my cheeks.
I find that the BB cream is light/medium coverage. I still see some redness, however it does make my skin look better than before.
I did see a difference between the before and after. The redness has decreased a lot and my skin looks a lot better than before. However, since I do not have acne or much pimples to begin with, I cannot say how well this product prevents acne/blemishes.
Blends out well
Pretty good coverage
Does not last all day, I see it fading about around 4-5 hours
Very little color options
Overall, I am very happy with this BB cream. I would definitely repurchase this product in the future. For the price, I am very happy with the results it provides me.
So Walmart recently came out with beauty boxes. They are seasonal boxes, with random sample/full size beauty items for only $5 per box. This is the second box that I have ever gotten from them.
I was super excited to open the Winter Box, since for only $5 I find that these boxes are extremely worth it!
Here is what I got in my box. I was watching Eleventhgorgeous‘s video about this beauty box and they actually got different items than me. So I there there is more than one box out there, but this is what I got in my box.
The first item was this Olay travel size makeup remover sheets. I actually have tired these sheets and I absolutely love them and I am always excited for travel size items, since they are so easy to throw into my bag and I can easily carry them around anywhere.
Then I got these two bottles of L’oreal Paris shampoo and conditioner. For sample sizes, these bottles were pretty big, they are about twice as large as the usual sample bottles I get. I am excited to try them since they are sulfate-free.
Next item was a sample size bottle of Jergen’s body lotion. This item was my least favorite item in the whole box, since I am not a fan of lotions, but I guess it would be a good item to put in my bag and bring it everywhere with me.
My final item was a Maybelline Color Senstation’s lipstick from their Buff’s collection in the shade Maple Kiss. It is an neutral looking lipstick and I am excited to try it out.
Overall, I am pretty happy with my box and even though I got mostly sample sized products, the products themselves were great and the box is only $5. I love how they were products that I would actually use. My problem with beauty boxes is that sometimes they are full of items that I do not find myself using, however this box has items that I know I will be reaching for!
Today, I’m going to be doing a different kind of review. Instead of doing a makeup review post, I’ll be doing a review on a subscription box;Skoshbox. Skoshbox is monthly Japanese candy subscription box for $12/month. I recently received this box just in time for finals week!
The box was a lot smaller than I expected it to be. However I was extremely excited to see what was inside because who doesn’t want tasty snacks especially during Finals week.
I love the packaging and the box, the design is extremely simple but yet it is super clean and sleek looking. They also have a flyer on the top which lists all the product that is in the box for this month.
Once I open the package, I found all my goodies. Everything is tightly put together. They are all sample sizes in order to give you a taste of what they are like. You can buy the full size snacks on their website.
These are all the goodies for the month of December. I am extremely looking forward to try the Pretz snack since it is called Caramel Pie Pretz. I tired the potato ring snack and it was delicious and I cannot wait to try more of the snacks.
Extremely neat packaging
The snacks are really tasty and interesting
Most of the snacks are not easily available
Delivered to your doorstep every single month
A bit pricey for sample size products
Overall, I love my box of food goodies, and I think that I would continue to subscribe to this box, I love the different variety of snacks they provide (from sweets to salty) so I can fulfill any craving I have. Also, I love how the snacks are not easily available and this way I can try new snacks and see which ones I like before buying the full size.
