FCS July 2018 |The Park Is Open

I LOVE Jurassic Park. I even have Velociraptor foot prints tattooed on my left foot.

As much as I dig Chris Pratt, I prefer the originals. And good old Jeff.

*The FCS OTM club is I believe $28 plus shipping. It contains limited editing products and first looks at their new releases.

Clever Girl Perfume Oil $12.99

Strawberry jam, apple, rose petals, vanilla.

The FCS Perfume oils are fantastic. Lately they have been all I wear as far as fragrance goes. The smell great and a little goes a long way for a long time.

This one has a heavy rose scent- which I enjoy.

Spare No Expense Body Milk $13.99

Lemon, bergamot, orange blossom, sea mist

I have never tried one of their body milks, or any body milk for that matter.

The scent reminds me of breakfast. I do like how light the product is, perfect for this stupid hot and sticky weather.

Preserved in Amber Exfoliating Body Wash $7.99

Amber, Pink Jasmine, mandarin, cassis berries

The FCS Exfoliating soaps are really nice. It isn’t to harsh, but it’s harsh enough to make a difference.

This scent though…not my jam. I think I will just pass it along to a friend who enjoys the movies as well.

Water Ripples Toilet Bombs $8.49

Sea minerals and dark cedar wood

I tried the toilet bombs in the past, and they actually work great! We live in the woods, so we have well water. I let these sit over night then scrub the next day. They do an awesome job of getting hard water rings off.

Cryo Can Shaving Cream $12.99

Summer squash, garden earth, dewy leaves

I usually just use lotion to shave, so it will be nice to use an actual shaving cream for a change!

I think the shaving cream smells really sweet, not at all what I was expecting.

Must Go Faster Car Freshner $7.99

Orange, thyme, lemongrass, and avocado

Right now I am using the Star Wars fabric spray from FCS and I love it, I think it’s called hidden rebel base?

But, that one is running low so this came at the perfect time.

The lemongrass scent is really strong, which is fine by me, I love lemongrass.

Life Finds Away Hair Detangler $10.99

Apricot, nectarine, white oak, sandalwood

My hair knots so easily and is very frizzy and dry. I have natural waves/ curls in my hair, so it’s kind of hard to deal with.

This detangler smells freaking amazing, I am really looking forward to using it.

100% love this box. I am so excited about it and excited to try everything, but the Exfoliating soap.

Would you like to see any of these products reviewed?

Ipsy July 2018

This post will be quick and to the point. I am having one of my bad days, but did want to get a post up.

I need to start doing more than unboxing posts, but my inspiration is little to none.

*Ipsy is $10 a month. It contains 4-5 deluxe to full sized beauty items.

Callyssee Caffeine Sheet Masks x2

I do love Sheet Masks. I have a coffee bean eye cream that I think works well, so I have high hopes for theses.

The brand is cruelty free.

Elizabeth Mott Tapered Blending Brush

The handle is purple, the brush is very soft, and the brand is cruelty free. What is not to love?

I really enjoy getting brushes in my subscriptions.

Ella Eden Eye Shadow “Harmony”

I am probably going to depot this and put it in an empty palette. I do love single shadows though, they can be kind of fun. Just grab one and base a look around it.

The shade is really pretty and I don’t believe I have anything quit like it.

The brand is cruelty free.

Pacifica Coconut Blush

I love Pacifica. It is a fantastic cruelty free and vegan brand with some beautiful products.

Their coconut blushes are great. They are soft and pigmented.

I do like the shades that were in my duo. I could even use one as a bronzer. The shades are Beaming and Tenderheart. There is even a mirror on the back of the duo.

Smashbox Be Legendary Liquid Lip “Stepping Out”

I have never tried one of the Be Legendary Liquid lips, but I have wanted to.

I think the shade I got is the perfect starter shade for me,

I gravitate towards darker pinky or brown nudes.

Smashbox is Cruelty Free.

I am very pleased with my Ipsy bag this month. I look forward to see what next month brings.

What was in your Ipsy bag?

Thank you for reading.

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box July β€˜18 |Shine your light

I just ate the BEST Spicy Black Bean Veggie Burger!

What are your favorite Vegan Meals or snacks!?

*Vegan Cuts Beauty Box is $22.95 a month. It is cruelty free, vegan, and usually pretty clean beauty items. 5-6 full or deluxe sample size. *

This months Box contains….

Crazy Rumors Ruby Red Grapefruit Lip Balm $3.50

I think Crazy Rumors is my favorite lip balm brand.

But, I am not big on Grapefruit, so I may let someone else have this so they can discover the brand as well.

Use code VCUTS15 for 15% off your order until 9/1/18

Sade Baron Rhein Body Lotion $8

This Lotion is really light weight- great for summer. It has a light scent of peppermint and ylang ylang. Rhein just became my new desk Lotion!

Sappo Hill Bamboo Charcoal Soap $3

I love using soap bars as much as possible. Much less waste.

This one doesn’t really have a scent, so it will be perfect for the face or more sensitive areas.

My Magic Mud Toothpaste $4

I have seen Magic Mud products at TJ Maxx. I actually see a lot of natural brands there. It is where I get my deodorant. In case you cared.

I am really interested to see if this activated Charcoal tooth paste works. I drink A LOT of teas and coffees. So, if it works I’ll probably buy the lines products in full size.

Yes To Triple Masking Kit $4

We al know I already love the Yes To products. I think it is really cool that they have come out with these kits and I am excited to give it a try. I have never done multimasking before!

Zatik Naturals Gratitude Face Serum $32

The Gratitude Serum is meant to hydrate skin and soften fine lines. It isn’t as liquidy as other serums I have tried, and I really like that. The Serum has a fresh earthy scent.

*use code ZATIK20 for 20% off your order on their site until 10/31/18

Balanced Guru Love Aromatherapy $15

This tiny thing is $15?!

Anyway, I love aromatherapy so I was glad to see this in the box.

I can’t find what oils are in this on the box, but whatever it is it smells beautiful!

$69.50 worth of awesome cruelty free and vegan products for just $22!!! Vegan Cuts literally never lets me down.

What are your favorite masks to multimask with?

BoxyCharm July 2018 | Road Trippin’

I love to travel. My most favorite place in the entire world is up in the mountains near Bozeman Montana. Camping in the mountains is where I feel the most at home.

Where is your favorite place to visit?

BoxyCharm is $21 a month and contains 5-6 full/deluxe sample sized beauty items

This months theme is travel themed. Let’s see what BC packed. (Lame.)

Dr.Brandt No More Baggage $42

I don’t have anything to say about this eye cream besides that it is NOT cruelty free. Passed it on to my mom.

Crown Brush Fuego Eyeshadow Palette $29.99

First and foremost, I want to say that I am very confused about Crown’s CF status. Logical Harmony has made posts about some of their brush sets in the past, but I think it is still gray listed as a brand. But, other sources say it is CF?

HELP!

Anyway, this Palette is really pretty.

Here is a terrible swatch of a few of the shades. If there was a matte cream shade this would be the perfect palette for me. I love warm tones, I think they make my eyes look pretty.

I will do a look post with this palette!

Wander Beauty Unlashed Volume and Curl Mascara $24

Wander beauty is CF!!

This is my first product from the brand wanted. I think the packaging is really cute. I have heard good things and I love trying new mascaras.

Note Cosmetics Luminous Silk Blusher “Desert Rose” $11.99

From what I can find, Note is 100% CF and Vegan!!! I may be mistaken, but I really hope I am not because $12 is not bad!

The formula is very soft and packs a punch as far as pigment goes.

The shade is really pretty and is a great shade for summer. I am love how sturdy the compact is and that it has a mirror. It also has a useless brush.

Chella Beauty Eyebrow Cream $26

Chella is CF!

Some how this is the 1st Chella product I have gotten. Everyone else has gotten their products in subscription boxes before.

I have heard mixed reviews so we will see how this goes.

That is is for my box! I do have to say 4 out of 5 isn’t bad!! That’s still a value of $91.98!! I do love BoxyCharm.

Which of these products would you like to see a review on?

Should I pick up more from Note Cosmetics?

Goddess Provisions July 2018 | Water is Sacred

I love being on and in the water. It makes me feel so at peace. But, I have to force myself to drink water. For some reason I just hate it! I wish I could be one of those super healthy people who only drink water.

This months Goddess Provisions Box is centered around water. Goddess Provisions is around $30-35 a month.

This months mantra:

“I allow transformation to flow through me with grace.”

I love it! Now, for the contents of the box.

Mazi Turkish Towel $20

We all know what a towel is for. The size of this towel is a bit bigger than a hand towel. I think it will be perfect to dry my hair. My hair is pretty wavy with some curls, it gets really frizzy and regular towels don’t help it.

I got the one The is black and gray tie dye. There were two other options, but I got the one I wanted!

House Of Intuition Bath Salts $8

Sadly, I do not have a bath tub. Just a standing shower. I will be sending this to my little sister in a care package. I do think this is a nice little extra to throw in a gift to someone.

I am currently looking for an apartment, a bath tub is one of my requirements.

Love By Luna Nail Polish “Scorpio” $18

This shade is a dark blue/green with glitter. I can not wait to get it on my nails! It is infused with obsidian and is meant to be worn during times of introspection and healing.

Shanti Bar Spirulina Bar $3

I love getting snacks in this box. Check out my snap chat or Instagram soon to see what Myself or Coty thought of this bar!

Coal Miners Daughter Sea Salt Spray $12.50

I used sea salt spray for the first time while I was in Mexico and I love how it made my hair look. I am going to have to give this one a go! Oh, it smells really good by the way.

Art Naturals Konjac Sponges $10

I already have this set and am currently using the white one. I am really liking it, so I am happy to have gotten more.

Sodalite $5

Sodalite promotes peace and tranquility during murky waters. Carry it to remind your self to trust your instincts and feel a deeper connection to your intuition.

I think I am going to start carrying this stone with me on nights out. We are in the St.Louis area. For the most part it is not as bad as people make it seem, but you can never be too safe!

I love this box!! Every month it inspires me. If you enjoy crystals and believe in their power and the true inspiration and power of Mother Nature, like I do, than you NEED this subscription. Honestly, it has been a great tool in helping me grow my beliefs and knowledge.

What is one product you want to see me review? I am really needing ideas.

BeRad Cosmetics | Cruelty Free/ Vegan Faux Mink Lash & Natural Adhesive Remover.

First, let me start off by saying how thankful I am for this package. I rarely buy lashes, because I never use them. Now, I am stocked up for a while!

About the brand:

Be Rad Cosmetics is all about living your life as fully and consciously as possible.”

Be Rad is a cruelty free, vegan, and mindful beauty brand. Who, if I do say so myself, makes so stunning lashes.

Each pair is $20 and there are 4 different styles. My favorite is “Boss Babe All Day.”

Here they are on my eyes here!

And here!

You can purchase them, and the three other last styles, Here.

The lashes are easy to apply, keep in mind I rarely wear lashes. (Thank god there was some duo lash glue in the package!!)

The band isn’t too wide, but it isn’t too thin either.

Is $20 steep? I think so ( if it wasn’t for their other products) But, compared to similar products it is on par as far as price goes.

With the next Be Rad product we will be discussing, these lashes will last ages.

The Lash Adhesive Remover

Be Rad came out with a NATURAL lash adhesive remover!

It cost $25 and comes with 2-10mL bottles. One of the wash the second the rinse.

This may seem like a small amount of product, however, you only need one-two sprays of each!

The remover is made with essential oils that are plant based. Completely free of harsh toxins and chemicals.

Before

As you can see, there is a ton of build up on my lashes.

So first I sprayed them with the wash. The let it sit for 4 minuets.

Then I peeled the Adhesive off with tweezers. It came off the first lash super easy. Not so much the second.

Once I got the adhesive off, I sprayed it with the rinse, the them sit for a bit, then stored them away!

After

All that build up is gone.

I will be honest it took a bit on the second lash. But, it did come off.

If I wore lashes more often this is 100% a system I would repurchase.

Final thoughts?

I love the lashes, when I wear them these will definitely be my go to lashes!

The adhesive remover is a fantastic idea, and I will definitely use it. If I get more in to lashes I will purchase it once I run out. You can get it Here, for your self!

I am very much so looking forward to see what Be Rad has in store for the future. They are a cruelty free, vegan, and mindful brand. What isn’t to fall in love with?

Fortune Cookie Soap OTM June β€˜18| 80’s

Today has just been, well, the worst. So I decided to finally open up my Fortune Cookie Soap of the month Box for June.

I absolutely love Soap. I always have. Apparently when I was younger I would ask to go smell soap instead of look at toys.

FCS is a cruelty free brand and all their items are made in Oklahoma, USA. I believe I pay around $35 a month for this box including shipping. I live in Missouri for reference.

This months theme is the 80’s. Let’s dig in!

Billie Jean Perfume Oil $7.99

“Mandarin zest, birch wood, and vanilla.”

The scent of Billie Jean is warm with citrusy under notes. I actually really enjoy it. I have a few other FCS perfume oils and they all last a very long time.

“Danger Zone” It’s a Doodie! Toilet spray $9.99

“Peach Melba, sugar musk, Black Cherry.”

More of FCS’s version of poo-poury!!! We love the other one I received. This one has a nice scent to it as well.

Permed and Teased Argon Hair Shine Serum $8.99

Sweet Pea and a base note of nectarine “

I can always use a good hair oil. I have frizzy, wavy, and damaged hair. I am always happy to try a new one. Especially one that smells so good!

Life is Delicious Lip Scrub $9.99

“Strawberries “

I will be honest, I am not big on the taste of strawberries. But I did test this product out so I think I am going to see if my mom wants it.

For reference it is not as harsh as the Lush lip scrubs, and also more moisturizing. It would be perfect if it wasn’t strawberry flavored.

Mixtape Glowtion $14.99

“Watermelon, light white floras, coconut”

I have tried this Glowtion a few times already. I love it! It smells fantastic and makes my arms and legs look so good. It has a slight tan tint to it as well as some shimmer. It is the perfect product for summer.

FCS Vice Cooling Aloe Mist $9.99

“Mojitos, sugared papaya, casaba melon”

This aloe mist is meant to cook you down after a day in the sun. Or just feeling super hot in general. This is another product I have already tried. I love it, another great edition to your summer product arsenal.

Totally Rad Facial Cleansing Oil $16.99

Bartlett pears, pink grapefruit, pink sugar”

Always up for a facial cleanser. This is one is packed with vitamin E,A,C and D. Sounds like a great way to fight bacteria to me.

There is only one product this month I won’t be using. Everything else I am already loving or very excited to try. Another Of The Month well worth the money. I am excited to see what next month brings!

Which products are you curious to see reviewed?
