Wishtrend Mini Haul

Happy Friday, time is flying way to fast. Too much to do and so little time. Ok, so onto this mini haul which is long overdue. So a few weeks back I received my order from Wishtrend which I introduced to you back in September (click here).

As you know, I have been exploring masks lately and the last one I had been using was Glamglow Youthmud Mask which I reviewed last month (click here for review). I had a discount code from Wishtrend and wanted to use it to buy some new goodies. So, I ended up getting another mask because the description and what it’s intended for caught my attention. The mask is from a Korean brand called SKIN&LAB and the name is Glacial Clay Facial Mask. Its purpose is to clear, contract and care for your skin pores. What this means it’s suppose to clean deep into your pores to remove any dirt, excessive oils and any residue left by your makeup. This mask is also supposed to tighten your pores and make them look less visible. It is also supposed to be good for those with acne prone skin and oily skin. Now you know why it caught my attention, I had to buy it and try it out. I will post a full review on how to use it, how it worked out for me and if I will re-purchase.


I also got, two nail polishes just because they looked so pretty. I was going to get more but I wanted to make sure I liked the formula and the color payoff before I went ahead a bought more. MisQs is also a Korean nail polish brand and all the colors look so beautiful. I picked the colors Burgundy and Shiny Pink. I was honestly surprise at the size of the nail polish bottle as it was so small but it just makes it look so much cuter; you guys know I am a sucker for cute packaging, lol… I haven’t tried these polishes yet but I will and also do a review on them.


In the box, I also got some free samples from other brands they have in their website, which I will be trying out. I also already have my shopping cart ready for my next purchase; some lipsticks. Hey I couldn't help myself!!

Oh, about ordering, on their website is pretty easy and every step was simple. The only downside is that it took three weeks to get to me but it was so worth it and I can’t wait to use all my goodies.

Monat Global Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive Review

PR Sample provided by Ifabbo for review

Good evening everyone, hope your week was a good week. I am sorry I have been MIA for a while, just had a lot of personal things going on and really did not have enough time or motivation to blog. But I am happy I was able to do this review for you guys today, it just made me realize how much I missed blogging and chatting with all you guys.


So, I want to talk a little bit about the Monat Global Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive that I received from Ifabbo for review. I am not getting paid for this review and I am expressing my own thoughts and opinion about this product. Monat Global Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive is a multipurpose oil with rich natural ingredients, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that are good for your skin and hair.


When I first got the package, I was expecting a small bottle but when I opened it I was surprised. It was a good size, classy and looked luxurious to me lol… I love its texture, its super smooth and dries up quickly and it has a lemon scent to it sort of reminds me of lemon heads the candy lol… the smells does fade a few seconds after application on skin or hair.

I used it on my face at first because I was getting some dry patches on my chin and around my nose due to the chilly weather and this really helped those dry areas of my face. I was a bit concerned because I do have oily combination skin so I thought my face would get extra oily but it didn’t. This sort of tricked my skin into thinking it was producing enough oil so I didn’t have an excessive amount of oiliness in my face which I was happy about. I applied it in the morning before makeup and since it absorbs quickly I just applied my makeup over it.


I also used this for my hair since my hair is prone to getting frizzy all the time plus it’s a bit damaged because I bleached it and color it a while back. So my hair tends to get really dry and breaks easily. So I gave this a shot to see if it helped my hair and maybe repair a bit of all the damage. I can say that it has helped although I still need to cut my ends. My hair feels really smooth and a bit stronger than before and it doesn’t get frizzy when I dry it which I love. I use it after washing my hair and before I blow dry and every day to keep my hair smooth and frizz free.


This Oil is awesome not just because of its natural ingredients but because it helps enhance cellular renewal and it helps maintain skin’s elasticity and strengthen your skin and hair which Is a very positive thing. My face does feel smooth I haven’t noticed any major changes but then I haven’t been using this oil for a very long time. So maybe I just need to continue to apply it and wait and see. When it comes to my hair I have seen some positive improvements that I am happy about.

Have you tried Monat Global Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive? If so what were your thoughts?


Thanks!

Halloween Illustration

What I like about Halloween is that you get to dress up and get to be someone other than yourself for a day, could be someone you admire like BeyoncĂ© or a Zombie from your favorite TV show The Walking Dead or anything you desire. Also, the part where you get together with family and have a fun afternoon, trick or treating with the little ones while us adults get to be young again lol… So inspired by Halloween I came up with this Illustration, hope you all have a happy, fun and safe Halloween enjoy!!
