Bath and Body Works NEW Coconut Water Chill (Review)

If you saw my recent Shopping Haul then you know I visited my local Bath and Body Works and purchased a few items one of which is fairly brand new to BBW which is the Bath and Body Works Coconut Water Chill Shimmering Cooling Mist; it retails for $14.00 but I purchased it for $10.00 because it was on sale at that time.

What drew me to the mist was the scent although it smells nothing like Coconut it does have a floral island smells which is just amazing.  It is very strong so 1-2 sprays is enough, but what's awesome is that the scent stays on your both for several hours before you have to re-apply.
Signature Collection Shimmer Cooling Mist Coconut Water Chill
The one thing I should have paid attention to was the "shimmering" aspect, which is something I totally hate.  This spray gives off a lot of shimmers, and not even a subtle glow, when you spray it a bunch of shimmers spray out, and you literally look like you're ready for Halloween!  Maybe I am being too dramatic but it doesn't look like a sun-glow and it really makes me dislike the product, regardless how great it smells.

I am going to return this product because quite frankly I don't like my skin or clothes being filled with glitter; which I am very disappointed about because I love the scent! If this is something that interests you then I encourage you to first visit your local BBW and test this product out; make sure to visit the BBW site for more product details!

PONDS Luminous Finish BB+ Cream

[Purchased] [PR Sample] [Affiliates] [Sponsored]
Imagine coming home to a massive box waiting for you, you open it up and see 4 packaged Ponds BB creams, a super cute pink mirror box, and 2 more BB creams inside of would you feel? I felt surprised, excited, amazed, confused, I mean really all these emotions were running through my mind!  A few weeks ago I did a survey for Influenster (in case you don't know, is a site where you earn badges and depending on how active you are, then you may be eligible to receive a Voxbox filled with {usually} full sized products to test out and review) the survey I completed was for Ponds BB creams but I didn't know what to expect.

A letter was included in the huge box that stated: "We're you're #1 fan and that's why we hand-picked you, an exclusive group of the first beauty gurus, to try the latest, greatest and most innovative new product from PONDS -- new PONDS Luminous Finish BB+ Cream." So over the next few weeks I will test out this BB+ Cream and do a first impressions review, plus I have a ton of extras so I will be doing a few giveaways for you all very soon!

Forever 21 Glow In The Dark Love & Beauty Nail Polish

I've been obsessing over Forever 21's Love & Beauty Nail polishes, Pink Icing which is such a beautiful (glitter) pink polish, but also BabyFace which is a milky blue (glitter) polish...let's just say I am in love with their polish line! So recently I purchased Forever 21 Glow In The Dark Love & Beauty Nail Polish in Neon Yellow, and yes you read it correctly it claims to be Glow in the Dark!
Forever 21 Nail Polishes
First of all, this polish applied very easily without any effort, very and very smoothly, just like the other Love & Beauty polishes. However the pigmentation is horrible, the neon yellow is very clear and you need at least 2 coats to get somewhat of a color.  As you can see in the picture above, 2 coats offered a very translucent yellow.

Now as far as Glow in the Dark, this polish did not glow for me...I tried putting light on my nails maybe to try to heat it up and brightening it...nothing worked.  I was a little bit disappointed in this polish and don't plan on buying any more of their glow in the dark line. If any of you have tried this polish please let me know if it worked for you (the glow) and how you achieved it!

Reviva Labs Liquid Mascara Review

[Purchased] [PR Sample] [Affiliates] [Sponsored] 
I had a chance to test out a few products from Reviva Labs, the Seaweed Soap, the Oatmeal Soap, and the Vitamin E Stick! Well today I want to share my review of the Reviva Labs Liquid Mascara, which I was very excited to try out! 

The Liquid Mascara is a .25 oz. tube, and retails for $8.00; it comes in the color black and the color brown (I received the black one). Ingredients include Beeswax, Water, and Wheat Oil, which explains its gentleness because this mascara contains a hypoallergenic formula which means that it will not cause any irritation or break you out/cause any rash. I love this because I do have sensitive areas on my face and the slightest ingredient can cause irritation but the Reviva Labs Mascara is so gentle and works wonderfully!
Affordable Liquid Mascara
If I had to use one word to describe this mascara, it would be natural, the reason is because this mascara gives you the most natural looking lashes, and it's exactly what I've been looking for to wear on a daily basis.  This mascara was super easy to apply, it didn't clump at all, and it didn't flake on my lashes either! 

Reviva Labs Cosmetics
The applicator is big enough to apply enough mascara, yet small enough to fit perfectly with any eye-shape in order to contour the lashes with the product! This particular mascara does an excellent job in lengthening and separating the lashes and makes it easy to curl with an eyelash curler. Also, because this contains beeswax, I feel that this allows the curl and lengthening of the lashes to remain the same throughout the day, which is pretty amazing!  

Have you tried the Reviva Labs Liquid Mascara?  To learn more make sure you visit the Reviva Labs site for more product details! Stay tuned for a giveaway where you can win all 4 of the items I reviewed!!
