EX Item of the Week

20170221_120655

Hey you!

Whenever I try a new product that I just love I want to share it.  So, to do that I will be featuring an EX Item of the Week from Endless Xpressions.

I don’t love everything but the things that I do I have to talk about because who doesn’t love a good product?!

Today is all about the Charcoal Cream Masque!  In the past, I have tried tons of hydrating, toning and firming masks but activated charcoal has become increasingly more popular for its natural benefits.  It is used to trap toxins and the all around yucky stuff from your pores, leaving your skin feeling clean and renewed.

There are the thick charcoal masks that rinse off and there are the peel off masks that can sometimes hurt your skin more than help it.

This particular mask is completely light weight.  It goes on like a cream and just sits on your face until dry, roughly 8-10 minutes and then just removed with warm water.  So easy…and a huge reason why I was attracted to it.

I am pretty low maintenance in the grand scheme of all things beauty.  I love taking care of my skin but don’t have all the time in the world to do it!  I want something that works and does it quickly.  I have used this mask for a few weeks now (just once a week is needed) and love its simplicity and the ease of its workings.  It keeps skin care simple while providing the benefits of soft and hydrated skin.

This masque is loaded with:

  • clarifying Activated Charcoal
  • extreme hydrators like Hyaluronic Acid, Organic Olive and Jojoba Oils
  • antioxidant rich Organic Rooibos
  • toning DMAE 

This is definitely a new permanent addition to my skin care regime!

 

Stay tuned for more faves!  Also check out lippies and leggings!

Mini Haul Reveal

Yesterday, I was pleasantly surprised that my latest package from Endless Xpressions came in the mail.  Who doesn’t love receiving a box to open at your front door.  Even if I know what’s in it, it always puts a smile on my face! 🙂

This current haul is a small one, as I wanted so desperately to try some new items.  In January, EX merged with their sister company Hodge Podge and with that merge came so much more fun inventory to share!

I have to try everything so I can share with you guys my perspective and opinion of how things work!

Plus new goodies make me happy!  So, here we go!

Handmade Soaps

64 different kinds (under Bath & Body > Soaps)

 

20170228_080334
$5.95 USD

Eucalyptus, Hemp & Tea Tree Soap.  There has been an abundance of sickies in my house, stuffy noses and congestion, so this was a MUST try.  This can create a slight vapor in the shower or bath to help with a cold or allergies.

$5.95 USD

Chamomile Face Soap.  It’s made with 65% olive oil so I had to try it!  Olive oil is awesome for the skin and I have been known in the past to lather myself with it after having  a shower.  A little goes a long way and because my skin is pretty dry it helped to seal in some moisture.  I prefer using this oil compared to a coconut oil when it comes to my skin in particular.  So, super excited to try this soap!

Cosmetics

20170228_080503.jpg
$15.95 USD

5-Color Eye Shadow Palette in Mild Trance.  I am so excited to try this.  I love shadows and for everyday prefer a natural palette and this is perfect in regard to the tones I like.  The case is basic black and has a nice weight to it along with a mirror on the inside which makes it great for on the go.  Can’t wait to see what looks I can do with this one.

20170228_080710.jpg
$17.95 USD

One of our NEW best sellers, the Ultra Lash Fiber Mascara!  This is a ONE Step Fiber Mascara and I can’t wait to try it.  I have had a particular 2-step mascara (from a company that shall remain nameless) forever! I would put it on and an hour or two into wearing it all the little fibers were all over my cheeks and falling into my eyes, it was so annoying.  So, I never used it…it just sits in my cosmetic case for nothing.  But this should minimize the work it takes to create the look of fiber lashes by incorporating them into the formula! Super excited and I will be sure to share what I think!

Handmade/Hand Cut Bath Bombs

80 different kinds (under Bath & Body > Bath Bombs)
20170228_080039.jpg
 $5.00 USD

Our Bath Bombs!!!  These were from an order I got a week ago but thought I would share.  I have tried these and love them already.  So, had to get more!  They are sooo fragrant and make my skin feel so soft and silky.  The scent always lasts a long time on the skin which is nice too.  Glad to add more to my collection! 🙂

That’s it!  All of what was in my Mini-Haul!  I will be trying my goodies today and create some future posts to share with all of you.

Have a lovely day! ❤ ❤

The Lotion That Got Me

lotion

Hey all!  As you all know I work in direct sales!  My main business being EX because it has a huge range of beautiful quality products and is a super fun company with great gals!  But I am also an affiliate for Skin by Nature, Inc. and not for what you might think…

grapsnbutlotion_large
$6.00 (8oz.)

I became an affiliate with Skin by Nature, Inc. strictly for the discount!  Ha! Yes, I said it!  I truly had no intention to join another company.  I am completely happy with EX but I was in search of some natural products and came across this company.

I purchased quite a few things to try, one of which, I previously talked about in Why I can’t do without my ‘Can’t Dew Without You Anti-aging Night Cream’ Product Review (Skin by Nature, Inc.) but I also tried “Grapes n Butter” Lotion.  I was in desperate need for a body lotion.  I had been using a familiar drug store brand (to remain nameless) and was horrified to find out that it was full of carcinogens and hormone disruptors!  I mean this stuff was rated a 9 (10 being the worst) on EWG’s Skin Deep!

I have worked hard on changing products I use to healthier options.  More natural and even organic.  I immediately fell in love with this “Grapes n Butter” Lotion for its consistency.  Generally, when something says lotion it is a lighter version of what I usually use.  Creams seem to hold better for my skin type.  I have very dry skin but this lotion wasn’t so light.  It smelled lovely ( I got the Bamboo scent) and it felt nice on my skin. Silky even.

I saw almost immediate results when using this lotion for even just a couple of days.  My skin felt smoother and my legs looked clearer, meaning, my skin became more even toned.  My skin actually looked quenched and brighter.  It was amazing because I had never truly found a lotion that has locked in moisture, it was always temporary and then I needed to reapply. Or, in truth it could have just been the chemical laden moisturizer I had been using for years that was killing my skin.  Scary to think about that but it definitely could have been the culprit.

“Grapes n Butter” is rich in vitamins and antioxidants.  It is made for dry skin and helps to soothe.  It helps to slow the process of aging, promote healthy collagen, which helps smooth lines and wrinkles and aids in helping to minimize stretch marks from its anti-inflammatory properties.  This stuff really is a skin savior for me. (Shop for your skin type)

So, yes I joined Skin by Nature, Inc. for the discount on these awesome products. I have no shame! 🙂   I have found new staples in this company and am newly amazed when I try something new!  I can feel better about what I’m putting on my skin and don’t have to break my pockets either…win win! 😉

Liquid to Matte Lipstick by Incognito

matte

16602816_10211818347474083_2515987906942427275_n
This is me!  Love this color!  Creates a pretty natural look! 🙂

Well let me just talk about the AMAZING Liquid to Matte Lipstick with Endless Xpressions. This stuff is on point!  When my husband and I recently spent the day out I put some Liquid to Matte on at about 2 pm and it lasted until Midnight without needing to reapply and that is WITH eating and drinking throughout!  Ten hours and it looked as pretty as it did when I put it on!

I have recently gone back to a matte lipstick as I have been a gloss wearer for some time now.  But with gloss you always have to reapply just to keep some color generally.  Lately, when I am out I just don’t want to be bothered…

Finding a nice matte lipstick is a difficult task for me as I have had trouble finding something that keeps my lips moisturized.  A lot of the time, I have found that the matte lipsticks I have personally tried have caused my lips to dry out and I always have to apply a balm underneath and throughout the wear of the product and that’s not what I want.

Liquid to Matte Lipstick goes on wet and has a silky texture!  It dries to a BEAUTIFUL matte finish!

The application is incredibly easy, it lasts ALL day and contains Kaolin, of which is a naturally occurring clay mineral that gives this lipstick the luxurious feel and texture without drying out the lips!

 

Here are some customer reviews:

Samantha B 02/01/2017

Simply the best!

I love the Liquid to Matte lipsticks! They glide on smoothly, they stay on sip after sip, kiss after kiss, they don’t peel like most L2Ms, and stay on all day! Even after eating! I will never buy another L2M lipstick, again. Totally in love!

Kristina K 01/30/2017

Love it!

I love my liquid to matte! I ordered the color bitten. It doesn’t feel like I have anything on! I definitely want more!

 

Kady C 01/27/2017

Why I can’t do without my ‘Can’t Dew Without You Anti-aging Night Cream’ Product Review (Skin by Nature, Inc.)

 

Hey there!  So today’s morning started off slow.  Since, I couldn’t sleep the night before, I slept pretty hard last night and woke up quite groggy.  I am feeling all sorts of imbalanced, ha!  But nothing more coffee can’t fix!

Today I wanted to share with you a little gem that I started using a couple of months back.  I was in search of a good, solid night cream that can help to add some moisture to my skin while I sleep but also help to fight back signs of aging.  Now, physically, I feel like I’m in my 20s, but let’s face it people…I am only getting older and need to take action to keep my skin glowing and feeling good!  I am in my mid-30s now (single tear falls down my cheek), and we all know, taking care of your skin will keep you looking fresh-faced for years to come!

nightcream_large

So, in my search for a night-time cream, I came across a company called Skin by Nature, Inc.!   I read through their website and was intrigued by the fact that all the products were made up of 100% all natural ingredients.  I started trying new products that were made naturally in early 2016 after learning that some of the products I had been using for years were full of chemicals, such as carcinogens and hormone disrupters!  I was floored that products were allowed to be on the shelves when they can potentially harm people and even in some cases cause major health issues.  In learning this, I found some great products, yes, but all at a hefty price tag.  And for a lot of us, price point can be the end all for trying to make healthier choices.  Luckily, the prices with this company were all among my happy place.  Skincare that is natural and affordable!  Whaaaaa!?

I had to try it!  Can’t Dew Without You Anti-Aging Night Cream ($7.50), I have used for 2 months now and am so incredibly pleased.  My skin is glowing!  I have pretty dry skin and this stuff really has infused so much more moisture into my skin, it feels plumper and appears more even.  Since using I have gone without any sort of make-up on my face other than my standard concealer and mascara.

This night cream is made with natural oils such as grape seed, avocado, almond, sesame, macadamia, hazelnut and jojoba oils in a aloe vera base with glycerine, all loaded in anti-oxidants.  It claims to soften, tighten and aid in anti-aging and since using, I believe it!  There are different fragrance choices such as lavender, cranberry and cucumber.  I am using the lavender-scented cream and it’s not heavy, it’s a perfectly light scent.  I find lavender to be such a relaxing scent near bedtime.  There is also an unscented version for those that prefer that.

I took some time to see how this cream was going to work for me and I have to say it is the best cream I have found in a long while and at a price that I LOVE!  Just recently I decided to become an affiliate for Skin by Nature, Inc. only because of how well my skin loves the product.  I was not in the market to represent another company but thought, why not?  I love to share great products and I know if you’re looking for a great Night Cream with added benefits, you will not be disappointed.
