Oz Naturals Multiproduct Review!

I have one more massive review for you guys today! I was approved to test out a couple of things from Oz Naturals awhile back and here's the review!

Via Tomoson I received Hyaluronic Acid Serum, Vitamin C Serum, and Eye Cream.

I want to start off with their Super Youth Eye Gel, because it's my favorite of all time! I've tried a BUNCH of eye creams lately because of Tomoson and this one really wows me. It's amazing and has a kind of... Cucumber scent to it, like you're sitting at the spa with cucumbers on your eyes. It leaves your eyes feeling refreshed, awake, and not puffy at all. I use it underneath my makeup, and it's helped me out so much that I don't even have to use undereye concealer anymore. This is the most amazing product ever. This is probably one of the two only eye creams I will ever buy ever again in my life. I LOVE it. Props to them.
This comes in a gel form instead of a cream and I think that's the main reason I love it so much. It goes on super smooth and is really lightweight and awesome. It's packed with awesomeness such as Plant Stem Cells, Matrixyl 3000, Peptide Complex, Hyaluronic Acid, and Vitamin E. It's wondeful.
For more information or to purchase you can CLICK HERE!

Up next is their Hyaluronic Acid Serum. I really love this product as well, and left a killer review on Amazon or it. It's a thicker serum, and I really like it alot. I think I mentioned before that I just got back from the beach, and this serum has saved my skin from peeling. I use it mostly at night before bed. It's great for sensitive skin, and is SUPER moisturizing. I don't really smell any scent to it at all. AND as an added bonus, it has Vitamin C in it as well! So it's like a double serum! Awesome! To find out more info or to purchase CLICK HERE! :)

Last, but certainly not least is their Vitamin C Serum. I know I've reviewed like a zillion of these lately but this one is a little bit different. It has an amino blend and hyaluronic acid added to it, and like I said before I'm all about products with added stuff in them. This makes your face feel nice and tight, and is GREAT for reducing fine lines. It's also great for sensitive skin. For more info or to buy CLICK HERE! :)

So that is my review for Oz Naturals. They are seriously a great, high quality skincare line, and I'd love to work with them again anytime.
My next review is going to be aimed towards kids, and I'm SUPER excited about it!! hint HINT NAIL POLISH!

Instanatural Multi-Product Review!!!

Recently I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to review a BUNCH of items from a brand called Instanatural. This is QUICKLY becoming pretty much my FAVORITE brand of skincare products, and I have decided to consolidate all my reviews into one big one so they're easier to find.

First, here's a little bit of a rundown of who Instanatural is and what they do.
Instanatural is a company that started off in Florida as a super small business providing all natural skincare products. They use ALL natural ingredients in everything they make, and everything I've tried thus far is EXCELLENT. Everything is high quality and they have GREAT customer service, as well as a 90 day 100% money back guarantee on everything they make. They're also CRUELTY FREE!
So far, I've gotten to try emu oil, hyaluronic acid serum, moisturizer, argan oil + coconut and jojoba oil, and eye cream, and I love every single one of them!

First up is their Hyaluronic Acid Serum. Until I received this from Instanatural, I hadn't even heard of this product. I guess I must be behind the times on my skincare regime. I'm glad I got the chance to review it though! It's great! Here's a picture for your viewing pleasure.
This product, in my opinion is amazing! It is super moisturizing, and leaves my skin feeling super refreshed. The added green tea that is in it is my favorite part. It makes my dark circles basically disappear, and I love it! I love that it's all natural and I don't have to worry about it having any weird ingredients in it that will break out my face. ALSO, the bottle itself is HUGE and a little bit goes a long way, so this is going to last me basically forever. You can pick it up from Instanatural HERE, it's on sale for only $15.95 and also find out more information. 

The next product I want to tell you about is their moisturizer. I've been using it for about two weeks now, and even after a vacation to the beach and getting sun burnt, I'm not peeling at all. I prefer to use it in the morning versus at night, because I feel like something in it wakes me up. It is scented, but it smells kind of reminiscent of like.... cucumbers or something. It is for all skin types from oily, to normal, to dry and has tons of extra ingredients for anti-aging. Like I've said before, I may be only 25, but I will make SURE that I have as little wrinkles as possible before I turn 30, and this moisturizer is going to be my new go to FOR SURE. It is non oily on the skin, and sinks in super fast, which is great or someone like me who uses it under makeup. 
Here's a picture!
Another great thing about this moisturizer is that the bottle is 3.4oz and HUGE! It duals as a hand cream and eye cream as well, and I love multi-use products! To purchase and find out more, CLICK HERE! It's on sale for $21.95 right now and you can get a percentage off if you purchase multiples of their products!

SPEAKING of eye creams, Instanatural ALSO has given me the opportunity to test out theirs! I love it EVEN more than I love the moisturizer. It gets rid of ALL puffiness and dark circles and works excellent underneath makeup. I let a friend of mine test it as well, and he has seen GREAT results. Within two weeks he has zero puffiness and diminished fine lines. Here's a picture of it!
I've tried tons of eyecreams lately, and this is by far the best one I've used. It makes you feel awake in the morning and super refreshed!! If you would like to purchase or find out more CLICK HERE! It's on sale for only $25.95 and is worth every penny!

Last, but certainly not least is their Argan oil. Not only is it argan oil, however, it also has jojoba oil, AND coconut oil, along with tons of other awesome ingredients. I've been using it regularly on my hair as a deep conditioner, and have already seen results. My hair, by the way is bleached like white, and after four bleachings total, this is exactly what it needed. It's great as a heat protector when I straighten my hair, and I am probably going to be testing this bad boy out as a moisturizer and on my stretch marks to see if it helps my skin! It also makes my hair SUPER shiny without looking oily at all. It's an EXCELLENT elixer, and I probably will never go back to using regular argan oil! Here's a picture of this wonderful product!

Finally, if you'd like to find out more or purchase CLICK HERE. It's on sale for $15.95! 

SO, that is my massive instanatural review. I sincerely love every single product of theirs that I've tried, and have had so much fun working with them! I hope to bring you more of their products very soon!

And for my readers, I have TONS of reviews coming your way this week, and at least one more giveaway, so be on the lookout!!

Starlooks update!

Omg I'm still giggling about how awesome this company is! A few days ago I received my replacement makup remover and when I went to pull out what I thought was an order slip I was quite surprised.  I had let them know in my email about the makeup remover that I had posted a blog about last month's box.  I refuse to put a company on blast for minor issues of a faulty pump or my crystal obsession not being fed that month lol. I just don't roll like that.  So yeah I admit I sounded a bit crazy about the crystals,but it's nothing compared to when I talk about makeup or nail polish.  I have to give it to starlooks for shipping  out the replacement makup remover so fast and putting up with my quirkiness. Kudos starlooks what I thought was an order slip just proves you have some cool people working for you. Keep up the great work!

May starlooks review and rant....

Hey guys! Yes I'm back and no I have NOT stopped blogging,I just had some home stuff to take care of.
Now that being said on to my lil rant (well not really much of one it just kinda bugged me).
Below is May's star looks box I received...
Overall it's a great box.  I knew as soon as I opened it and saw the shreds I wasn't going to be happy (so much so that I actually went to thier Facebook page and asked where is my crystal lol) Hey I really look forward to them! That's normal right? Ok so in response to my plea of crystals they said they will have them in June's box :( but I guess it saved me from looking for a crystal in a stack of shreds. (This concludes said rant) 
So onto what goodies I got!  What I thought was powder is apparently an illuminater it's pretty but a little goes a long way. As you can see it has a slight red tint to it ( I used a brush to apply it and I wiped off a lot and my face still seemed red ) 
The makeup remover works great but the spray pump didn't work (also addressed by many on thier Facebook pg) they are taking care of it but I do like the idea behind it! Would make things so much faster for me. 
The eyeliner is a pretty shade but I'm kinda scared to use it, I'm not much into bold colors on me but I may try it soon . The last thing was the spa towel sample, I say sample because they are sold in packs of 15 on the site.  It's a lotion wipe and smells nice but way out of my price range even if I'm using my loyalty code. Which is a perk I love that they have! If you get a box for 3 months you can get a code worth 35$off anything on the site! I'm still trying to figure out what I want to get with mine.  I know I need more powder ..... but hey you can't beat the price of the monthly sub at a little over 17$  and the lowest value of a box I have seen was 48$ the illuminater powder alone is worth 25$!
You can sign up for a subscription by going to and if you tell them that Melissa Spangle referred you I would be forever grateful :)
Hope you enjoyed this review I should be getting my June box any day now and will let you know how I feel about it !

Belitae Organics Fresh C Vitamin C Serum Review + Giveaway!!!!

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. 
Today I'm bringing you guys another review of an excellent vitamin C serum that I've been testing out for about a month now. I know I've posted a ton of these reviews lately, but honestly I REALLY love these little bottles of face magic, and I love reviewing them even more!!
The one I'm bringing you today is definitely at the top of my favorites list. It's called Fresh-C Vitamin C Serum by Belitae Organics and you can purchase it HERE! ANNND compared to some of the others out there it's super affordable as well at only $16.95 on Amazon.

A fun fact that I learned from Belitae: Vitamin C, when applied topically to the skin is 20 times more effective than taking an oral supplement!!! Who'd have guessed?! This serum works with your skin to produce more collagen, which in turn reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Can we say AWESOME! I personally only have a few wrinkles so far, as I'm only 25, but I don't want anymore anytime soon, and I have faith that this product will help me achieve my goal of not getting any wrinklier (is that a word?) by the time I turn 30! Vitamin C Serums like this also are proven to fade age spots and discolorations with long time use. They make your skin soft, and like I said, are basically little bottles of face magic! Now on to the good stuff:

Here's a picture of the bottle provided by Belitae. I love the packaging it comes in. Definitely not boring at all like some products, it's adorable! 

What I love best about this serum is that it absorbs like lightning fast. Some of the Vitamin C Serums I have tried lately (which is alot of them) take forever to soak in, and since I use it before moisturizing, it's important that it soaks in fast, so I can moisturize, and then apply my makeup. That's another thing, it works GREAT under makeup. Some of the serums I've tried make your skin have like a... film on them after they dry and this one DOES NOT. It fully absorbs almost instantly. 
Since this product has practically no scent to it, I feel super refreshed the morning when I wake up and use it. I have seen a reduction in acne, less dark circles, and a reduction in my pores since I started using this serum! I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend it! I hope that it's continued use reduces this one awful dark spot under my eye! *fingers crossed*

Like I said before, right now you can pick up a bottle of Belitae's Vitamin C Serum on Amazon for just $16.95 right HERE! You won't regret it!

If you're interested in learning more about this product you can visit Belitae Organics in a few different ways:
Well, that's it for tonight! I hope you enjoyed this review, and I hope if you like serums you will check into this product. I'm serious! It's AWESOME!

Now, on to the BETTER stuff. Belitae has allowed me to host a giveaway of this AMAZING product here on the blog, so now is your chance to test your luck, so maybe you can try it out for yourself!! It will be open until Sunday st 11:59 EST. PLEASE, PLEASE contact me back via email within 24 hours with your mailing address in order to claim your prize, or I will have to pick a new winner. :( GOOD LUCK!
a Rafflecopter giveaway

Until next time,

Nature's Best Vitamin C Serum Review!

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. 
Today I am bringing you yet another Vitamin C serum that I've been testing courtesy of This one is called Nature's Best Vitamin C Serum, by Mystelic Beauty, and I absolutely love it! I really love these little serums and am super thrilled that I've had to opportunity to test out so many different one's, since they're all definitely not the same. Here are some photos of the product for your viewing pleasure!

For starters, I think the packaging of this one is nice. The dropper has a nice flat end instead of the point kind and I like the simplicity of the label.

Probably my favorite thing about this serum is that is basically has no scent to it. There are a few that I've tried out that have smelled a little on the heavy side, and some kind of chemically scented. This one basically has no scent whatsoever and I feel very comfortable using it on my face. 
Like all other Vitamin C Serums, you are supposed to apply them daily to you face and neck, let them dry so they completely absorb, then apply your favorite moisturizer on top. I like that Nature's best Vitamin C serum leaves my face feeling tighter even AFTER I've applied my moisturizer, because most of the serums I've tried haven't.  I haven't used it long enough to see any results for my dark spots, but my face definitely feels tighter, and I have high hopes that it will help out with my acne situation!!

This product is made in the USA, is chemically tested to stimulate collagen, and is one of the highest quality vitamin C serums out there right now. You can visit them HERE to learn more, or pick up a bottle of your own for only $17.95!!

If I end up seeing some crazy results, I'll definitely keep you guys updated with my progress!

Rainbow Honey May 2014 Mini Mystery Bag Unboxing & Review + My very first order!

Okay so I know it's technically June now, but I've been waiting to make sure everyone received theirs and all that Jazz before posting up my Rainbow Honey Mystery bag. Thanks to my friends Melissa and Liz, I am officially addicted to all things RH. They polishes they carry are absolutely stunning. Some holo, some packed full of the most random awesome glitter combinations ever, some just awesome. 
Since this is my first time ordering from them, I decided to just do the $10 version, which has mini polishes instead of full size. However, that being said, their minis are pretty big! I also bought a fullsize of the color Midnight Fountain, which I wanted to get in one of my Ipsy bags a few months bag but tragically didn't. 
I used a 25% off code and my paypal hoarded money, and ended up spending only like $3 for the whole order AFTER shipping. WOO! Future Coupon Queen over here.

Here is what I received in my May mystery bag:
This, my lovelies is my May mystery box!
It contained: 
  • Waves - Mini 15 mL
  • Neon Blossoms - Mini 15 mL
  • Petit Four - Mini 15 mL
  • Summer Juice Perfume Rollerball
  • Summer Juice Shea Butter Soap
  • Honey Mint Lip Balm
  • Little bag of adorable nail studs
My favorite of the three polishes here is DEFINITELY Waves. It's the only one I currently have a swatch of so I'm totally sorry for that, but it's super summery and pretty and I basically LOVE IT! :)

Sorry for the wretched cuticles, but isn't this SOO cute?!! It's from their upcoming summer collection, I can't wait to see more.
Here it is sandwiched in between Midnight Fountain, which is the other color I had to order a fullsize of! I love them both! And before I get to the other colors in this months bag, here it is MACRO STYLE:
SOOO Many Gorgeous layers of glitter here!  I love this one! It's so complex and wonderful!

Up next is Neon Blossom, which is a neon topper filled with Neon Pink and Yellow Hearts and flowers. It has smaller metallic glitters as well and is absolutely STUNNING! I will post a swatch as soon as I can!

And Petit four is a yellow cream polish filled with red, turquoise, and pink glitter. Honestly, this is my least favorite of the bunch. The color palette just isn't calling my name. But it is definitely very different from anything I've ever seen before.

The soap in this bag smells AMAZING! I haven't used it just yet, but it smells exactly like the perfume, and they're both super fruity and summery and great!!! 

I also LOVE the lip balm. I figured I'd receive the lime one like everyone else seemed to, but I really love the Honey Mint flavor, its like a mild Burt's Bees and is just minty enough, but not super intense.

Overall, my first mystery bag is a HIT! I'm definitely going to be ordering another one as SOON as possible.

Nail Cones Review!!!

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. 
Today I have a pretty cool review for all the nail polish junkies out there like me! :) I plan on posting a couple of nail related reviews in the upcoming days as well!
Anyway! I, for one, always seem to make either a giant mess, or at least a little one whenever I do my nails. Especially when I'm painting them with my left hand. Nail cones are a brand new product that provide a SUPER easy, affordable way to remedy this problem and I'm super glad that I got to test them out to review for you! Thanks to Nail Cones and Tomoson for the opportunity.

I have some pictures to better explain what they are and how they work!!!
My favorite part of this product is that they are SUPER easy to use! You simply peel them off and place them around your nail, and then they protect the skin around your nail from any excess polish getting on them! I find these GREAT for doing designs and gradients that involve using a sponge! They're also REALLY sticky and stay on VERY well, which makes them even better! Usually I use plain old tape when I do stuff like water marbling, gradients, and nail art, and it always peels off and isn't quite tacky enough. These DEFINITELY are, but they aren't so sticky that you can't get them off either.

PLUS, did I mention they're ADORABLE?! Here's some pictures of me using these awesome little stickers from the other day!
This is how you peel off the stickers for use! They come in different sizes too, so you can pick the right one depending on what nail you need to use it on!
AND here is the top part of the package that has the super easy instructions!
And here is what they look like when you put them on! I don't have them pushed all the way down here, since it was the first time I used them and I'm not used to wearing acrylics anyway... but you can see that there is basically NO nail polish on any of my skin! Yay for no difficult cleanup! :)
And my completed mani and my monster!! :P Not to brag or anything, but how CUTE are my butterfly nails!

If you'd like to find out more about Nail Cones, please visit their website HERE.
A sheet only costs $5.99 and they have LOTS of info on their website and even a video tutorial!! Definitely worth it! They make painting nails a breeze!

Until next time,

Adovia Dead Sea Shampoo & Conditioner DUAL REVIEW!!

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
Today, I am bringing you yet ANOTHER review of two amazing products that I got to test out courtesy of my account on Tomoson. I'm really really excited about these two, because they work AMAZINGLY well!
Meet Adovia's Dead Sea Mineral Mud Shampoo & Dead Sea Mineral Balsam Deep Conditioner:

We will start with the Mineral Mud Shampoo. If you're like me, you're probably like... "Dead Dea Mud Shampoo WHAT?!", but once I used it I totally understand what all the hype is about. If you read my last review I posted, you probably saw me talking about that awesome face mask, well this shampoo and conditioner combo is basically as awesome as that. I'm pretty sure Dead Sea mud products are like my new favorite thing ever, and I am starting to LOVE the Adovia brand. This shampoo is crazy awesome, and smells so super good. I suffer from a pretty dry and itchy scalp, no dandruff really that I know of, but it's itchy and I pick at it because of my anxiety disorder.. Gross I know, sorry for the overshare. This shampoo is super gentle, and lathers like crazzzzy. If my hair weren't so totally fried, I could probably use it without conditioner. Now, I've only actually used it once, but my hair was sooo soft the next day, and I noticed I was significantly less itchy. It smells great too. I feel like my hair was salon quality clean, and I will definitely be repurchasing this product!!! It's a greyish color, which is kind of strange for shampoo, but it lathers up to a nice, white lather. 
Another notable thing, is that it's made with lots of great, natural, ingredients, which if you read my blog I am allll about lately. It has not only Dead sea mud but also chamomile and olive oil to leave your hair and scalp feeling super moisturized, and to get rid of any dandruff or itchies. Like I have stated in other reviews, Dead sea mud is packed with TONS of awesome minerals that are great for your skin and hair. 
You can pick up this awesome shampoo on AMAZON HERE for only $26 + free shipping and it is WORTH every penny! Click that link to learn more about the product too!

Now, on to the conditioner. 
I didn't really think I could love a product any more than I already love the shampoo, but this conditioner really takes the cake of awesome conditioners. This is seriously like the best freaking conditioner I've ever used in my life, and I've tried ALOT of them. Ever since I bleached my hair, I've been searching for the baddest and best deep conditioner to bring some life back into my hair. I leave this bad boy on for like 5 minutes, and it's like my hair was never even bleached. It's bouncy, not frizzy, and smells amazing. This product has a scent like no other hair product I've ever tried. I LOVE it. It's like light and fresh and smells clean. It's not overly scented like most conditioners out there, yet it stays in my hair and it's awesome. Like the shampoo, it's packed with awesome all natural ingredients such as aloe vera, chamomile, vitamin E, and dead sea salt, which has TONS of minerals in it that leave your hair in better condition, and your scalp less dry and without dandruff.
My personal opinion, is that I would HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend this conditioner to basically everyone. It is purely awesome.
You can pick it up on AMAZON HERE for just $19 and it also has free shipping!

So that's my review! Has anyone out there tried any Dead Sea Mud or Salt products?? I'm seriously shocked at how much I'm loving them. All natural is definitely the way to go! Now hop on over to Amazon and check these out!!
