Lush Rave: Snow Fairy Shower Gel

Hello! I know that I sound like every other beauty blogger, but I really do love Lush! I have loved all of their products that I have tried so far. I know that Lush is expensive so I try to save my products for special occasions. Also, I wait for the one time of year that Lush products go on sale. I wait for after Christmas when all of the holiday products and gift set are 50% which is great! I picked up this Snow Fairy Shower Gel in a gift set last year after Christmas. Snow Fairy is a limited edition scent so you can only get it during the holidays, but it is well worth the wait. Keep on reading if you want to know just how much I love this shower gel!

Snow Fairy Shower Gel

  • has a very sweet, candy scent
  • it has glitter! You can see the glitter in the bottle, but I don't notice any glitter once its out of the bottle
  • creates a ton of lather!
  • leaves the skin with a light hint of the candy scent
  • it doesn't dry out my skin!

I really don't know if I have anymore to say about this awesome shower gel without rambling on and on about how great it is! I really do love this scent, but I use it sparingly so that I don't get sick of the scent. I am really surprised that I like the scent because I normally don't like sweet scents, but I do have a soft spot for Snow Fairy! It is expensive at $10 dollars for the 3.3 oz. bottle, so I do recommend smelling it in person at a Lush store and then waiting for it to come on sale. I love Lush products so please let me know what your favorite Lush products are in the comments below!

Fall Bucket List

Hello! I usually get really excited about Summer and Winter, but this is the first year that I am actually excited for Fall! This is the first year that I will actually get to experience Fall because I have always lived in a part of the USA that doesn't really get a Fall. Since I usually don't do anything for Fall I thought that it would be fun to come up with a Fall bucket list filled with things that I can do during Fall. If you want to know what is on my Fall bucket list then keep on reading!

  1. Wear my boots 
    1. I have been waiting for months to wear my boots again!
  2. See the leaves change color
  3. Carve a pumpkin
    • I am terrible at carving a pumpkin, but I hope I will get better
  4. Visit a pumpkin patch
    • Am I the only one who has never been to a pumpkin patch? I have always just bought a pumpkin at a grocery store. 
  5. Go on a Haunted Hay Ride
  6. Make pumpkin pie
  7. Catch up on T.V. shows that have started up again
  8. Light my Leaves candle from Bath & Body Works 
  9. Go Black Friday Shopping!
  10. Cook Thanksgiving dinner
    • I have never cooked a full Thanksgiving dinner on my own so this one will probably be the hardest thing on this list!
I hope that I will be able to get a least a few of these items crossed off my list before Winter, but if I don't I can always add them to the list for next year! I hope that this list will always be changing as I add and cross things off so that this list is always growing. I am trying to come up with more things to add to this list so please feel free to leave your suggestions in the comments below.

Hot or Not? Body Merry Skincare & Body Care

Hello! I love trying out new products so I was very excited to receive a few Body Merry products to test out. Before this I had never tried any Body Merry products, but I had read good things about the products on Amazon so I was excited to test them out and see if they lived up to the hype! Body Merry is a skincare and body care brand that focuses on natural and organic ingredients. This line is available on the Body Merry website link! and on Amazon. Keep reading to see what I think about Body Merry products!

Eye Gel

This eye gel is suppose to reduce dark circles, puffy under-eyes, and wrinkles. I consistently used this every day for the past month and I really don't think it made a difference to my eye area. I liked the gel consistency which made it easy to apply and it didn't irritate my skin. I really do wish that I had liked this eye gel, but it just didn't work out for me. When I finish using it up I will probably end up trying a different eye cream. 

Cellulite Defense 

This is a cream that is suppose to reduce the appearance of cellulite and firm up the skin. I tried using this on the back of my legs, but I just didn't see any change in my skin. It has the same menthol smell that seems to be very common in products that target cellulite. It tingled a bit when I applied it which made it seem like it was working, but in reality it didn't improve the appearance of my skin. 

Stretch Marks & Scars

This cream is meant to prevent and reduce the appearance of stretch marks and scars. I ended up using this as a regular body cream because it didn't do anything for stretch marks and scars. I did like this as a body cream, but I don't think it served its intended purpose. 

Overall, I was really underwhelmed with all 3 of the Body Merry products. I really wanted to like the products, but in my opinion none of them lived up to their claims. I know that these products have worked for some people, but I just didn't think that they were very effective for my skin. Since these products didn't work out for me please feel free to leave me suggestions for other products in the comments below. 

See you soon,

First Impressions: Four Seasons Brightening Sheet Mask

Hello! If you are a regular reader then you will know that I love using sheet masks. I think that they are a great way to give your skin a quick treat! Lately I have been trying to brighten up my skin so I used this brightening mask by Four Seasons. Four Seasons is a brand of Korean sheet masks that are intended to provide whitening and anti-aging benefits while being affordable. All of their masks are free of benzophenone, talc, mineral oil, petrolatum, artificial dyes, and sodium laurel sulfate. Keep on reading if you want to know my first impressions of the Four Seasons Multi Vita Brightening Active Mask! 

Multi Vita Brightening Active Mask link!

  • the sheet was the right shape for my face
  • didn't break me out or irritate my skin
  • I used this at night and my face looked brighter in the morning
  • had a light and fresh scent that wasn't overpowering 
  • came with too much serum!
  • there was so much liquid that I couldn't move around while wearing this mask
  • the serum took a really long time to sink into my skin 
  • the sheet is really thin so it can't hold up to the massive amount of serum it is soaked in 
Overall, this is a nice mask for the price. Right now it is on sale at for 85 cents USD which is a great deal! I would recommend using this mask at night so that in the morning all the remaining serum will be absorbed into your skin. The brightening effect lasted for about a day or so which is probably why it is recommend that you use it 2-3 times a week. I love using sheet masks so please feel free to let me know what your favorite sheet mask is in the comments below so that I can give it a try! 

See you soon,
