{Acure Organics} Glamorganic Goddess Beauty Kit

Acure Organics

“Please help us raise funds for our friend Danielle Messina, The Glamorganic Goddess, whose mission is to find clean beauty products, inspire others, and promote education about the importance of prevention through a truly healthy lifestyle. At just 37 years old her doctor’s have discovered a secondary recurrence of Breast Cancer. We are donating 100% of the proceeds of this kit to help Danielle with her Glamorganic Goddess GoFundme Campaign.”

How awesome is that! A company willing to donate 100% of the proceeds to a goddess in need!? That is pretty gosh darn amazing if you ask me. When I saw Acure’s facebook post I knew that I wanted to help so I placed my order and waited for it to arrive. I don’t know Danielle, however I do know what its like to battle the unknown and how scary it is to watch a stack of medical bills grow each day. $19.99 may not seem like much, but a little goes along way and if all of us order a kit, imagine the impact that would make on Danielle’s life.

Just remember: “No matter the battle, or the fight, no woman deserves to go it alone.”

“So what did you get in your Glamorganic Goddess Beauty Kit!?


Glamorganic Goddess Beauty Kit

Facial Toner Balancing Rose + Red Tea (Full-size): ($12.99) This alcohol-free certified organic toner utilizes organic witch hazel to purify, organic vegetable glycerin to moisturize and organic rose and chamomile to soothe, calm and restore the skin’s natural acid mantle—the skin’s own protective layer.

Aromatherapeutic citrus ginger argan oil (full-size): ($12.99) Incredibly rich in vitamin E, essential fatty acids, and proteins, argan oil helps fight lines, repair imperfections, minimize scars + stretch marks; all while restoring texture, elasticity and tone. Lightweight and easily absorbed, the aromas of citrus and ginger will invigorate and warm the senses!

Argan cleansing towelettes (full-size): ($6.99) Gently remove makeup, dirt, sweat, environmental toxins, and that mustard from the corner of your mouth. No splashy rinsing necessary.

Lip lush – birthday suit (full-size): ($7.99) Luscious, lip smacking gloss with sheer color and attitude. Agatha von Birthday Suit doesn’t need a bunch of fancy schmancy colors to show her true beauty. Argan Oil, Echinacea, + Edelweiss Stem Cells help plump and protect.

Acure Night Cream (sample-size): Nature’s nocturnal miracle! Age-fighting Argan Stem Cells, shown to help the skin’s natural repair process, firm and moisturize while 2% Chlorella Growth Factor fortifies collagen and elastin fibers. Hydrating Moroccan Argan Oil seals the deal, truly making this nature’s own skin rejuvenating system.

Acure facial cleanser gel (sample-size): This gentle cleanser works on two levels–it washes away dirt and oil as well as removes makeup to leave your skin radiant and refreshed.

Acure Brightening Facial Scrub (sample-size): “Seas” the day with natural exfoliation from the ocean! Organic Sea Kelp gently exfoliates your skin while French Green Clay and Organic Lemon Peel remove impurities from your pores.

This is one super amazing kit! I got four full-sized products and 3 sample-sized products for $19.99. I almost feel like I am robbing Acure because this is such a great deal. Plus everything is organic and planet friendly. You know how much I love chemical free products and living. I urge you to run on over to http://www.acureorganics.com/category-s/172.htm and pick up a kit of your very own. As of May 15, 2015 the kits are on back order, but don’t fret my friend you can still place your order and remember the products will vary from box to box.

{IPSY} Jet Setter

May 2015

“Buckle Up, Buttercup.”

I think Jet Setter is a great theme for May, for me May is the gateway month to a summer of road trips and travel. I am in love with easy multipurpose products that I can throw into a day bag and hit the open road. In the summer months no girl wants to be weighed down by her beauty routine. Simple, portable and elegant is best.

Ipsy changed there sneak peeks this month, I don’t do snap chat so I pretty much missed them all. I hear rumblings that glamglow was included and that a lucky chosen few would receive it in their bags. I am not lucky, I also heard about a clear lip pencil and deep down I knew it was in my future.

“So what did you get in your glam bag?!” Lets unzip it and find out!

May 15

Jet Setter

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Lip Pencil + BONUS Revolution High-Color Lipgloss: long-lasting, waterproof liner glides on smoothly to prime AND define—for long-lasting lip color and clean lines. Smooch. Pout. Smack. Nibble. Lick. 24/7 stays put through everything (yes, EVERYTHING) you do. When you use this liner to fill in your lips completely, it primes them for lipstick or gloss, grabbing on to color to help it last.

Chella Eyebrow Color Pencil: The fine tip on this sleek European-designed mechanical pencil has a creamy consistency that glides into place and can also be lightly smudged for a more natural look.

Klorane Smoothing and Relaxing Patches: soothing eye patches refresh, moisturize and brighten tired eyes. Formulated with a unique combination of cornflower to naturally soothe and reduce puffiness; arnica to drain the eye contour; and chamomile to refresh and provide anti-inflammatory benefits.

Luxie Beauty Tapered Blending Eye Brush 205: This Luxie Rose Gold Tapered Blending Eye Brush is a 100% Animal Cruelty Free brush with high quality synthetic hair bristles that are soft to the touch.

CoTZ Face Natural SPF 40: A Balanced Mineral Complex that feels silky & soft and blends translucent, with a sheer matte finish. Superior protection aginst sun-accelerated age-marks has never felt this nice.

I am in a hit or miss relationship with Ipsy at the moment, we are on a low right now, but I just know that one of these days they are going to wow me. Or at least I hope they attempt to wow me again.

Do you want an Ipsy Glam Bag of your very own? Well then, for $10 a month (shipping is free) you will receive a Glam Bag filled with deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products. Members can watch and play along with the stylists with the same products that they are using. If you want a bag of your very own or more information please visit http://www.ipsy.com/r/1w1i Trust me you will be glad you did!

{BirchBox} Cupcakes and Cashmere

May 2015
“ELEVATE EVERYDAY LIFE, May’s box is curated by Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere, this month’s picks bring out-of-the-ordinary elegance to your daily routine.”


Elevate everyday life…….sounds like a plan to me. I like how BirchBox partnered with a regular girl like you and me and not a celebrity or brand for this month’s curated box and products. Products are more relate-able when they are picked by someone in your own demographic. Or well maybe close to your demographic, I am not one to wear a bold lip color or crazy shade of eye shadow. However I am always willing to try new things.

“So what did you get in your May BirchBox?!”


Cupcakes and Cashmere

Benefit Cosmetics – The POREfessional: this sheer, oil-free balm minimizes pores, smooths skin, and works with all skin tones
—————————-> I have sampled this in a previous subscription boxes and I love it. It is sheer and light weight, bonus it makes my skin look amazing with or without makeup

Living Proof – Restore Instant Repair: Innovative treatment that smooths and heals hair.
***********BONUS*******WE’VE GOT A BONUS********EVERYONE LOVES BONUS SAMPLES**********
————————–> BONUS: Living proof Restore Shampoo and Living proof Restore Conditioner

Mally – Evercolor Waterproof Automatic Eyeliner: this pencil delivers vivid, smudge proof color
————————-> This one is going in the gift pile, I am not an eyeliner girl. Never have been and I never will be.

Marcelle Hydra-C 24H Energizing Hydrating Gel: Lightweight, vitamin packed hydrator that brightens skin and goes on cucumber cool
————————> I am seeing a lot of gel moisturizers on the market this spring and I think I like them. This one is pretty great it absorbed quickly and left my skin feeling cool and smooth. I like cool and smooth, especially when it comes to pickup lines.

Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel: this acid-free peel gently exfoliates for instantly softer, smoother, and brighter skin.
———————>This is my sample choice product for May. I have seen it in previous sneak peeks and it left me intrigued and I knew that i needed it in my life. I have yet to try it thou, it is giving me the sad eyes from the bathroom sink. I keep telling it when I have time, its you and me peel, its you and me.

This Months box was pretty great, well besides the evil eyeliner and when I complete my product reviews I will earn a total of 70 points that I can use in the BirchBox shop.

Birch Box is a beauty and lifestyle subscription box program that costs $10.00 per month. For every dollar you spend in the shop you can earn 1 point. 100 points will get you a free birch box or $10 towards a purchase in the shop at birchbox.com. I know you’ve got friends so why not refer those friends to Birch box and earn a few points for doing so. If you would like to learn more and get a Birch Box of your very own go to http://www.birchbox.com for more information.

{Target Beauty Box} Spring 2015

Spring 2015
“Must-haves. Can’t-live-withouts. Obsessions. As purveyors of all-things beauty, we at Target Beauty like to keep a lookout for what’s new and now. We’ve put together a few of our faves – all in one convenient box for you to try for yourself. Test’em out and tell us what you think. And if you love them as much as we do, find full-size versions at target.com/beautybox.”

I am a Minneapolis girl so it is in my nature to love all things Target. I mean I work and live in the birthplace of the bulls eye that we have all come to know and love. Target puts the chic into my lifestyle, bonus besides cute chic things, they carry the Muppet like dog’s favorite food too. Plus like hello, they just partnered with the Honest Co, and you all know how much I love the Honest product line. See Target is chic and Eco-friendly, oh wow I think I just described myself, lets face it “I am the demographic Target is aiming for.”

“What did you get in your Target Beauty Box?” Oh! I am so glad you asked, let’s find out!

Target Beauty Box Spring 2015

Target Beauty Box Spring 2015

Maybelline Color Elixir by Color Sensations Lip Color (Full Size): a trio of concentrates delivers the color of a lipstick, the care of a balm, and the shine of a gloss.
—————————>Hello people, we have a full size product on our hands!

L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set: A lightweight spray that locks in your makeup for all-day extended wear.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Cream: non-greasy, skin-quencher instantly absorbs like a gel, but intensely moisturizes like a cream.

TRESemme TRES Two Extra Hold Hairspray: achieve maximum hold without stiffness or stickiness. Sprays on dry.

SheaMoisture Superfruit Complex 10-in-1 Renewal System Shampoo: sulfate free, antioxidant rich shampoo helps to renew vibrancy for dull lackluster hair.
———————————-> Just a thought, I think it would be nice if Target would include a foil (yes I said foil) packet of conditioner with the shampoo sample. That way one could try both and decide if they like the product. Not all conditioners work with all shampoos.

The Target Beauty Box is not a subscription service, they are first come first served, if they are sold out then you my friends are out of luck. I just checked target.com and the spring 2015 box is out of stock. For $5 this box is a great deal, that is if you can get your hands on one, they always sellout like hotcakes. So don’t sit on the beauty fence when you see them, just throw it in your virtual cart and call it a day!
