Organic Surge Daily Care Perfecting Face Polish Review

I received the Organic Surge Daily Care Perfecting Face Polish and wow is it fresh and beautiful.

What’s to love?

Organic Surge products are free from parabens, sodium lauryl sulphate, artificial fragrances or colourants and genetically modified ingredients.

The Face Polish has rosemary and lemon oils, chamomile, ginkgo and almond oil. This formula smells so amazing and fresh. To use I rubbed it into my face for about 30 seconds (it has a gentle grit) and rinsed.

My face felt so fresh and hydrated when I was done and it left my skin very smooth and clean. The lemon scent also lingered which was so nice.

I would definitely buy this product again and try more from the Organic Surge line. Their Deep Cleansing Face Mask looks amazing.

This is why I love the beauty boxes too, I get to try brands I have never heard of before.

It Bye Bye Under Eye Waterproof Concealer Review

I won a prize pack from the It Girl Superheroes Program which included the It Bye Bye Under Eye Waterproof Concealer.

bb.jpg

What’s to love?

I’ve never used a waterproof under eye concealer so I was excited to try this one out. I have the Medium shade.

According to the site it is Infused with high-performance pigments and anti-aging peptides, vitamins, hydrolyzed collagen, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants, the game-changing formula improves the appearance of wrinkles and effectively conceals the look of skin imperfections including dark circles, bags, redness, hyperpigmentation, broken capillaries, age spots and discoloration.

The product is pretty thick and a little goes a long way. I just rub a little bit under my eye and blend really well. They key for me is to keep blending. I have found when this product is still wet it looks a little heavy however once it dries it looks amazing on me. It completely covers my dark circles and uneven skin tones.

I did not have any creasing or flaking and this product blends perfectly with my other It products. It is also waterproof which for me means that it does not run or get melty in the heat.

Overall I am impressed and would get another one.

Now through 4/28 It Cosmetics is have a Friends & Family sale where you get 25% off your order and free shipping with a 30+ purchase. I just picked up the new Confidence in Your Glow palette!

Lush Over And Over Bath Bomb Review

I think that the Lush Over And Over Bath Bomb is my new favorite! This citrus wonder is about the most colorful Lush Bath Bomb I have used lately and it smells amazing!

What’s to love?

The new orange, yellow and pink Lush Over And Over has Lime Oil, Cypress Oil and Orris Oil with Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter.

This one was so easy to cut open too. It reminds me a bit of the Golden Egg in the way it cuts. The inside is a gorgeous hot pink.

Over And Over feels a lot more creamy than fizzy when it melts. You can see the really brilliant colors popping off below. They swirl into the water creating a really pretty orange shade when mixed together.

This one made my skin feel amazing and the smell lingers for a bit. I still can’t get  over how much I love the scent on this one. It’s pure orange and lemon. I really want to stock up. I do get two uses because I cut them in half too.

Price: $8.95

In my video I compare theLush Over And Over Bath Bomb to the new Bath & Body Works Fizzes and I do love them both!

*and yes I accidentally call Over And Over the Over And Under in my video! Oops…it does look like Over And Under though : )

The Body Shop NEW Almond Milk & Honey Review

The Body Shop has an all new line called Almond Milk & Honey and I picked up the Calming & Protecting Body Lotion and Soothing & Caring Shower Cream this past week.

They also have Calming & Protecting Hand Cream, Soothing & Restoring Body Butter and Gently Exfoliating Cream Scrub.

What’s to love?

The Almond Milk & Honey line is made from organic almond milk and has no colorants, mineral oil or petroleum.  They are also 100% vegetarian and cruelty free. It is formulated for sensitive skin.

The lotion has a nice sweet scent and it feels very moisturizing without being sticky or heavy and I feel like it absorbs quickly into my skin.

The shower cream is so luxurious with the same sweet scent and it’s got a light lather and really does calm my skin. I feel like this would be great if you got too much sun. My mom has sensitive skin and she’s been loving this product and it is so gentle.

Overall I am super impressed with this new line and I’d like to try the Gently Exfoliating Cream Scrub next.

I share a bit about the Almond Milk & Honey line in my Ulta Haul video too!

It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara Review

Yesterday I reviewed the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Poreless Finish Airbrush Powder as I won a 5 piece set from the It Girl Superheroes Program so today I wanted to review the It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara.

What’s to love?

I am so fickle when it comes to mascara and often times I use what comes in my subscription boxes because I hate keeping mascara more than a few months so I was thrilled to get a full-sized It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara as a prize.

According to It Superhero Mascara has Powerful lash-lifting polymers, volumizing collagen, strengthening biotin, proteins and peptides combined with Super Black pigment and the Lash-Changing Power Brush work together to coat every lash from base to tips.

 

I am very impressed with this mascara. The wand is simple, but effective. I usually judge  mascara by how easily I can apply it on my bottom lashes and this one did well.

I felt like it did lengthen and volumize my lashes and the lasting power is good. I actually took this photo 5 hours after I applied it. The other thing that I really liked was that I could not feel it on my lashes. It’s not heavy or goopy.

I did not get any flaking although I did have to wipe a little excess off of the wand before I applied it. Overall I’m happy with Superhero, it definitely feels like a high-end product and I’m excited to see if it conditions my lashes over time.

It is Made in Italy and the retail price is: $24

The It Superhero Mascara is part of my It Cosmetics video haul too so do check it out!

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Poreless Finish Airbrush Powder Review

Today I received my It Girl Superheroes Program prize, you can join here via my link. I received a prize package of 5 It Cosmetics products including the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Poreless Finish Airbrush Powder which was so exciting! I’ll be reviewing all of the products over the next few weeks.

What’s to love?

I’ve already tried and love the Bye Bye Pores Pressed from the Je Ne Sais Quoi Complexion Perfection palette and I love it. The Bye Bye Pores Poreless Finish Airbrush Powder is just as nice too.

This fine white powder goes on very easily and makes my face so smooth and soft. According to It is uses “real silk to make your pores disappear from view, and hydrolyzed collagen to smooth away the look of wrinkles.”

I had zero shine and the white shade really blends in nicely. It did not appear white on my skin. The product comes with a white puff but I prefer using a stiffer brush to blend it into more pores. I am really amazing at how much my pores do appeared diminished from Bye Bye Pores.

This product has zero scent.

Retail Price: $24

I also created a video showing off all 5 It Cosmetics products that I got!

LORAC Pirates Of The Caribbean Lip Duo

I also swatched the Lipstick from theLipstick/Lip Gloss Duos which are very pretty, creamy and pigmented but I wasn’t sure I wanted to spend $26 for one because I don’t wear a lot of lip gloss. The duel ended tube is really neat though.

I  picked up a few more things from Ulta so I decided to do a small Ulta Haul video!
