Target Beauty Box June 2017 | Hello SunshineΒ 

*not a monthly box, have to catch it when it goes up! This one was priced at $7*

Hawaiian Tropic Island Sport Sunscreen 


It’s summer time, so sunseeen is a must have. I like the Hawaiian tropic brand, everything always smells so good and this Island sport is not exception! 

John Frieda Beach Blonde Sea Salt Spray


I have have that is naturally pretty wavy, so I love using Sea Salt spray in my hair! I used to love the Josh Frieda Blonde line, but quite because it is not cruelty free. 

Masque Bar Soothing Sheet Mask


I am with out a doubt addicted t sheet masks. This one is meant to hydrate and smooth skin. Giving you a healthier complexion.

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Treatment 


This is a cult favorite product that I have yet to try. Aussie is not cruelty free, but it is something I have always wanted to try. This is a fantastic travel size for a deep conditioner as well.

Schick Hydro Silk Women’s Razor


With the price of those box, you are essentially paying a dollar for this razor… hell yeah! Razors can be super expensive.

Sinful Colors Nail Polish “Island Coral”


This isn’t exactly my color, but you can’t beat a full sized nail polish. I will probably paaa this onto a friend.

NYX Gotcha Covered Concealer “medium”


A NYX Concealer for essentially $1!! 

This one is supposed to be infused with coconut oil, and be water proof! I really hope it is light enough for me. I doubt it though, I am fairly fair. 

That’s it for this months Box, I can’t wait to see what next months holds!

Thank you so much for reading and I really hope you enjoyed this post!

Target Beauty Box June 2017 | Fathers Day Edition

*not a monthly box, have to catch it when released, this one way $7.*

Father’s Day is coming up, so Target took the opportunity to also offer a men’s box this month. It contains 7 items. That makes everything $1 an item! 


Nivea Men Creme

This is something my SO has tried before and loves. He hates buying stuff like this though, because my grandmother stock piles with coupons and he gets alternatives through that. 

Specifically designed for men, this multipurpose Creme moisturizes without feeling greasy. 

Olivina Men All-in-1 Body Wash

The scent included is Burbon Ceder. I am personally in love with the scent. My SO likes it as well. It is warm and earthy, but not overly masculine. I would use it, honestly! It’s a great travel size as well. 

Schick Hydro 5 Men’s Razor

Razors are expensive. That’s all I have to say. 

Dove Men + Care Elemnets Deodorant 

I think this travel deotorant is larger than the travel Sizes at the store! It is scented with sage a smells great. It claims to protect from odor and sweat for 48 hours. I’m sure he will get use out of this.

Colgate Optic White Radiant Tooth Paste

This is supposed to be a fantastic tooth paste. Who can’t use tooth paste!? 

Everything aside, I have already stole this from him and started using it πŸ˜‚ Swiped!!

Yes to Natural Men Cleansing Wipes

We do a lot of hiking and camping during the summers. I am sure these will ended up used during a trip. I have seen a lot of products like this meant for men lately! 

AXE Adrenaline Cool Charge Body Wash

I think my SO will enjoy this, but I really dislike mint. It is mint and ginger scented. It is a nice travel size though.

This post was a tiny bit different! I hope you enjoyed it, thank you for reading!!

Pacifica Island Life | Palette ReviewΒ 

If you read my previous post. My May Ipsy unbagging, then you have seen this little palette already.

The Pacifica Island Life palette contains five shimmer shades, and retails for a price I can not find. However, their similar palettes retail for around $14. If you use the code PACLOVE on Ulta.com you can get Pacifica products for 20% off! 


Shades from left to right:

  • Skinny Dip
  • Coral Sand 
  • Golden 
  • Treasure
  • Sandalwood 

They are all extremely pigmentedand buttery. They are all also shimmery shades, so I would recommend a companion palette for mattes. I used The Balm Meet Matte Trimony palette

The look:


  1. I used the Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer, and set it with the cream shade from the Balm palette
  2. I used the lightest brown from the same palette as my transition shade.
  3. Now into the Pacifica palette! I put Golden all over my lid.
  4. On the outer third of my eye and on my lower lash line I placed Treasure.
  5. To deepen up my outer crease I used Sandalwood.
  6. For my inner corner I decided to go with Coral Sand.
  7. Finally, to high light my Brow bone I used Skinny Dip.


I was very pleased with how my look turned out! I recommend patting all of these shadows onto the eye, instead of sweeping, sense they are all so buttery. You just have to work with them. I personally do prefer some mattes in every look, so this is not an all in one palette for me. But, I do really enjoy having it because it contains stunning neutral shades. 

I really do love the brand Pacifica itself. They are a natural, vegan, cruelty free brand, that is not outrageously priced. They seem to always be on sale at Ulta.

Over all 🌴🌴🌴🌴 not five, because you do have to actually work with them, so it takes a little time. 

I hope you enjoyed this post, thank you so much for reading! Have you tried any Pacifica eyeshadows? Comment your thoughts below!

Target Beauty Box |May 2017

*Not a subscription, $7-$10 a month, keep your eyes out for it each month*

I purchased my first Target Beauty Box last month, there were two so I got both. This month there was only one. It cost $10 and came with 8 product samples!


Nexxus Shampoo and Conditioner 

These are foil packet samples, which I am fine with! 

Caviar protein complex helps replenish moisture to dry, brittle hair for a mans that’s so soft and smooth. 


Acure Pore Minimizing Red Clay Mask

I have tried this before and loved it, so I am glad to have it again! 

Moroccan red clay draws out impurities while argan stem cells hydrate and tone for a bright complexion.


Nubian Heritage Coconut and Papaya Bath Bombs

Guys, these smell drop dead amazing!

Dream about a tropical getaway while coconut oil and papaya help naturally hydrate and revitalize skin.


Wet n’ Wild Mega Last Liquid Lip 

If you have stuck with my blog a bit, then you know I love this formula. 


This shade is stunning.


Vichy Pore Purifying Clay Mask

Another mask, but I love doing masks, so I am not complaining.

White Clay helps remove excess oil, while aloe Vera and mineralizing thermal water hydrates and strengthens skin.


Nexxus Vital 8-in-1 Masque 

I like that all the hair care products are from one brand, it’s like getting to try an entire hair system.

Blend of coconut oil, soybean oil and keratin offers intensive treatment to help nourish and improve hair. 


Guess Dare for women

This scent reminds me of the smell of magazine pages that had perfume pages in it. It smells good, but does not mix well with my body chemistry.


Soap and Glory Flake Away Body Polish

I already love this stuff, and I was out of it. Excited to have more with out having to purchase from a brand that I am not 100% positive of their cruelty free stance..

That’s it for this months Target Beauty Box! Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed it. I think this months Box was well worth $10, what do you think??

*NEW* Wet N’ Wild Photo Focus Face Products |Hot or Not

The new Wet N’ Wild Photo Focus face products have been all over YouTube and Instagram. I had to find out if they were worth they hype, or wastes of time.


Wet N Wild Photo Focus Foundation “Shell Ivory” $5.99

I am actually quite happy with this foundation. It has great coverage and lasts quite awhile. I thought this shade was going to be a little dark for me, but it ended up working out great!

Rate: πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘


Photo Focus Concealer “Light Medium Beige” $4.99

I have seen a lot of people comparing this to the Tarte Shap Tape concealer. If that concealer is any thing like this one, no thank you. I found that it gave little coverage. This shade was also a little dark for me. It is really inexpensive though, so if you are not wanting under eye coverage, this concealer might work out of for you.

Rate: πŸ‘πŸ‘


Photo Focus Powder “Warm Light” $4.99

This powder is pressed,  but when applied it feels really finely milled. It is very light on the face, and doesn’t cause any cake! I think I found my new favorite drugstore powder.

Rate: πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘


Here are the products on my face after 3 hours of wear. All good besides the concealer!!

I hope you enjoyed this review, thank you for reading! Have you tried these products, what were your thoughts? Comment below!

Target Beauty Box Natural Edition | April 2017

When I saw that Target had a natural beauty box, there was no way I was passing it up.

It retails for around $7, but it is not a subscription, you have to jump on it as soon as it hits there site! 

Let’s get into this box, because I am really happy with it!


Burts Bees White Tea Facial Cleansing Towelettes

It has been years since I have used these, but I remember loving them. 

Infused with white tea extract, calming cucumber, and aloe to gently remove dirt, oil, and makeup for all skin types. 


Juice organic Deluxe Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner 

Who doesn’t love travel hair care. I think it is literally my favorite thing. I have been curious about this brand, so this is a great way to test it out.

Volumizes, thickens and promotes healthy hair growth with passion fruit, soy protein and barely protein for fuller hair.


This is a brand I already enjoy for oral care- and Josiah does as well, but we have never tried their whitening formula.

Whitens teeth naturally; free of dyes, artificial sweeteners or flavors, microbeads, preservatives and gluten.


SheaMoisture Kukui Nut Facial Cream Cleanser and Face and Neck Cream

This is a brand I have fallen quickly in love with, anything I get to try from them is exciting for me.

Blend of kukui nut and grape seed oils delivers youth infusing vitamins and antioxidants to help protect against aging.


Yes to Tomatoes Detoxifiying Charcoal Mud Mask

Literally my favorite mask. I can ALWAYS use a back up or 5..

Made with charcoal to naturally draw out impurities, help fight and prevent acne, and removes excess oil.


Acure Pore Clarifiying Red Clay Scrub

This is a new product to me, but a brand I really enjoy.

Moroccan red clay draws out impurities with black jojoba beads gently exfoliate to reveal clearer, smoother skin.


Raw Sugar Lemon Sugar Body Wash

Holy hell this stuff smells amazing!!!!

Processed with cold press technology and packed with vitamin C, antioxidants and essential oils to cleanse and nourish skin.
