Here's a picture for your reference!
To start, there are like a million ways you can use tea tree oil. You can use it from everything to healing cuts, for a cold, to kill head lice, to a household cleaner. This Pure tea tree oil that I received from Apothecary Extracts is POTENT. Seriously, you only need a drop or two to get the job done. The bottle itself is pretty HUGE and will probably last me over a year since you need so little. According to what I've looked up, it's also packaged in the correct way, which is in a darkened bottle, since it has to be in a dark bottle to stay fresh!
I have big plans for this tea tree oil too. I'm planning on mixing it with my conditioner to make one for dandruff, since my favorite conditioner is Paul Mitchell's tea tree conditioner and shampoo. I LOVE the way Tea Tree smells, so this will be great for me.
When I used it on my mosquito bites, it instantly made them stop itching, and it seemed to get rid of them faster. On my acne it dried them up within a day, which is awesome since I've tried a million and a half ways to curb my acne lately. This is probably what I'm going to use for it forever, and I wish I'd known about it before!! As for my scalp, I'm a notorious skin picker, and this cleared up all the imperfections which is what bothers me the most.
Overall I give this tea tree oil a million thumbs up and I will definitely be purchasing it again whenever I run out. I plan on making some household cleaners too, to see what all the fuss is about!

Before I start on Checkout 51 and what it is, let me tell you guys about my epic Rite Aid purchases yesterday and a few weeks ago. I know it isn't much, but I'm pretty dang proud of it! LOL Rite Aid is basically the only place I've ever been successful at getting completely free stuff, and it's usually makeup.
They offer those coupons that you can load directly onto your card and then they come off at the register. PLUS they have an entire section of makeup that I guess is out of season and is only $2, AND an extensive clearance makeup section!!
A few weeks ago, I had printed off some coupons for $2 off any Covergirl Outlast lip product. WELL GUESS WHAT!? My local Rite Aid just so happened to have TONS of their Outlast stuff in the $2 bins, so I used my two coupons and got two Outlast lippies for FREE!
Yesterday, I went back in there just to get some prescriptions. Well, I remembered that I had a coupon on my card for $3 off any two Covergirl lip products, so I searched around and found some really pretty lipsticks and grabbed two of them for $2 a piece. I got SUPER lucky and found one that had an instant $.50 off on it. So I got TWO new lipsticks for only 50 CENTS!
One of the apps I have and use regularly is called Checkout 51. Each week on either Wedesday or Thursday, they issue a new list of items you can buy to get money back. I've redeemed cash back on everything from food, to cosmetics, to household products and they've recently started upping their cash back offers to stuff that pretty much everyone buys, like produce, eggs, milk, bread, etc. It's a SUPER easy way to get free money that you wouldn't normally be getting. All you do is buy the items, then go to the app and scan your receipt and click on the items you bought then BOOM cash back! Once you hit $15 you can request your money back, and trust me, it adds up fast!!
I recently became an affiliate for them, so I figured it could benefit all of us if I shared. Here's a link that shows some of their current offers that you can view to see if it might or might not be for you!

If you decide to get it, just use the links above to download the app on your phone, and then I get credit and you can start earn money back on your everyday purchases!! Easy as that!
Let me know if you have any questions! :)

First, I want to review their Renewing Moisturizing Cream! This is seriously probably the best moisturizer I've ever, EVER used. It goes on incredibly smooth and leaves your face feeling literally like silk. Here's a picture for your reference.

Sorry this took so long . I was waiting for the mystery items to arrive from the last promo .
The special edition Nylon Pink box actually scared me at first since I knew it would have bright colors; and well me and bright colors just don't go well together lol.
I will admit I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that I could wear everything but the lipstick (Ashley already claimed that since she's more brave with makeup lol)
Now the first time I got this box I was stalking the mail since it was 101 here in the south and well we all know how heat and lipstick go so well together lol.
So I'm driving my kids nuts sending them to check the mail every 15 min. But it didn't help. So to be on the safe side I let it sit a bit. Ugh oh Texas ..... no dice I opened the lipstick (starlooks tender gloss in pooh bear) I had barely opened it and it fell out of the tube ( honestly my first thought was omg Ashley is going to kill me, then omg I have neon orange stuff all over my couch and carpet! ) yea it's bright alright! But it's pretty . I certainly can't pull it off though. Even the lio liner in tipsy was melted. Yea we don't have ac here either I dunno maybe that proves im a bit insane. ...
So I was actually on the phone playing with the shadow after I had emailed pictures of my melted box and while the c/s lady was doing her thing I was noticing how buildable the shadow was. It's really not as bright as I thought. And can be worn alone for a subtle look. It came off as a very light gold rather than a yellow. (Im certainly not complaining lol). My point of mentioning me calling c/s about the melted box is just another props to this awesome company. I wasn't on the phone for longer than 10 min. I had assumed with s new box being sent that I would be waiting at least a week. I was actually amazed to come home from work 2 days later and find it waiting for me ( thankfully it was only a cool 96 that day snd yes I am aware how sad that sounds lol) I'm still on the fence about the eyeliner that came in the box. The only way I can describe it is a bright smokey blue if that makes sense. I have blue eyes so I want to try it. But will it be too much blue? The lip pencil is really the perfect color for me . Its a great neutral color which kind of suprised me that it was in a box with such bright colors. All in all I t h ink this box was a great mix of bright and neutral colors .
The retail value of the box was 49$ and I only paid 17 and change. (15$ plus s/h) a great deal IMHO
Here's all that was included &yes they are full sz products!
Blue clill eye pencil- $12
Traffic yellow eyeshadow- $12
Pooh bear tender gloss- $13
Tipsy lip pencil- $12
I didn't think I would like this box but I really do love it! Awesome customer service doesn't hurt either! :)
If you would like to subscribe feel free to email me or click the link ( I'm working on including my link since I blog from my phone, but you can always just tell them you heard about them from melissa spangle )
Yep I am working on the starlooks review from the july box ,but while im waiting I want to hear from you! The sad thing is I may have something you request in my stash. But if not I'll run out and get it. Of course please keep in mind I only have a sallys as our towns "high end makeup store" and I'll have to keep a budget of a max $20.00. So while I m doing spaghetti Tuesday I want to hear what you guys are wondering about. With any luck I'll have something you guy's request in the comments. Yes I may be a little obsessed with makeup but this could work to our advantage! Annnnd GO!
