Petit Vour Un-Boxing | Feburary 2017


*PV is $15 a month. Curelty free, vegan, and usually green beauty products.*

Sorry it is a little late. Let’s just jump right into this.


Konjac Sponge Co. Facial Sponge $12:

I love these hyped up sponges. Getting tools that I will actually use in boxes makes me ecstatic. This one is actually made of Konjac potato, so it is full of nourishing minerals and antioxidants.

Alia Cosmetics 3-in-1 Nail Color Remover $1:

This is something I have been wanting to try, so I was excited to see it when I opened the box. It is healthier than acetone and has vitamins a,c,e, and pure argon oil.

St.Tropica Organic Coconut Hot Oil Hair Mask $5

I have never used a hot oil mask, so I am interested to see how this works out. You microwave it for 30 seconds, and leave it on your hair for 20 minuets. It says to get stronger thicker more lustrous hair. Sounds nice to me.

pvf2Juice Beauty Phyto Pigments Cream Shadow Stick “Stone” $22

This is a product I already own (same shade) and love. It makes a fantastic base, but also works wonderfully on its own and as an eyeliner as well! The one I already had is starting to run low, glad that I now have a back up!

*watch my video, here. By the way, I have decided to for sure throw “Stone” in a near future giveaway!”

I would say this months box is very worth it! What did you think? Comment below! Thank you so much for reading and I really hope that you enjoyed it.

Emani Eyeshadow Trio “Tango”| Review and look.


The February Vegan Cuts box was amazing. One of the great products that it included is the trio in “tango” from Emani cosmetics.


The shades are stunning, pigmented, and buttery. Best of all, this trio is 100% vegan!

The shades fit the month perfectly, but they are also shades that I love to wear all year round.


* Please ignore my brows, I have been putting getting them done on the back burner, and I went a little crazy with my dipbrow lol.*

  • For my primer I used Too Faced Shadow Insurance and set it with Wet n’ Wild’s “Brulee”.
  • For my transition shade I used MAC “Cork”. I am trying to use it up, but some how it is lasting me ages!
  • I then put the light pink shade from the trio all over my lid.
  • I used the burgundy shade on my outer corner and a tiny  bit in my crease.
  • To really deepen my crease, I used the black. I also used it on my lower lash line.


I love this trio! I would gladly pay the $20 it cost, for more. The shadows are of fantastic quality, and really do pack a huge punch when it comes to lasting power. I keep finding my self reaching for this little compact!

Pick it up: here!

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed this little review and look! What types of looks do you want to see? Have you tried anything from Emani? Comment below!

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box | Feburary 2017


My favorite post of the month, Vegan Cuts Beauty Box UN-Boxing! You get a wide variety of cruelty free and vegan products. Let’s jump into this box. Spoiler alert, it is amazing!


Oral Essentials Whitening Tooth Paste $4 value:

I have been on the hunt for a vegan and cruelty free tooth paste that I actually enjoy. I hate the traditional fake tooth paste minty taste! SO far, I am really enjoying this one! I have not noticed any dramatic whitening effects, but the taste is nice and my teeth are left feeling clean.

Corresponding Video!

Herbal Transdermal Deep Pore Mineral Toner $3 value:

I am forever obsessed with trying out different toners, so I always get excited when I get one.I have yet to try this toner yet, because it has grape fruit in it. I really do not like grape fruit, so I am shying away from it due to that.

Earthly Body Colorphlex $3.99 value

This is a leave in conditioner, meant to protect the color and shine of your hair. It smells really nice, but I think I am going to try to save it for use this summer!


Crazy Rumors “Chocolate Strawberry” Lip Balm $3.99 Value:

I love this brand and the other balms I have from them. I am love lip balm in general, so that probably helps to sway my opinion. I thought this was a cute thing to put in a February box, because of the greeting card holiday of Valentines Day.

Ariel Co. “Cotton Candy Bubble Gum” Lip scrub $9 value:

You all know I love lip scrubs. My favorite was the Lush Bubble Gum Lip scrub. Now, it is this! It is the perfect consistency, taste amazing, has the right amount of graininess, and the company logo is really cute. Every now and then a certain graphic will sway me.

Emani Vegan Cosmetics trio “Tango” $20 value:

I was a little shocked to see this trio, because I have heard they are a more expensive brand. It is also hard to find good, pressed vegan and clean eye shadows, so that added to my shock!

These are shades I know I will use. They are buttery and extremely pigmented! I have a look coming up soon, using them!

Just a Little Ulta Haul.

This haul started all because I needed a new Z Palette. I ended up with more than that!

Ulta beauty automatic eyeliner “deep brown”

I have been loving brown in my water line and tight line. I have green eyes, so it makes them pop…and it is a little softer than black.

Ulta beauty Pollution Defense Pomegranate Peel Off Mask

I saw that Ulta released their own masks, so I obviously had to pick some up! They are only around $3 and cruelty free and vegan!

Ulta beauty Anti Aging Papaya Sheet Mask

I wanted more than one, so I decided to try this. I am starting to love the ease of sheet masks!

Yes To Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Paper Mask

This is already a mask I love and it can never hurt to have a few back ups!

SNP Animal Otter Aqua Sheet 

I really wanted one of the animal masks that look so silly. I decided to pick the otter. I may actually have Josiah do this instead of me, because I am not seeing anything about their cruelty free stance.

Ulta Beauty Makeup Setting 

I already use and love this stuff. I am almost out so I needed another. It works and smells great!

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you enjoyed this little haul. Sorry it isn’t more interesting! What products would you like to see reviewed? What products should I pick up? Comment below!

February 2017 Boxy Charm!


Tonight, I bring you the UN-Boxing for this month’s BoxyCharm! It is $21 a month, and usually has 4-5 full size, but sometimes sample size, beauty products!


Royal & Langnickel Omnia Eye Kit Retail: $29.98

I really thought this brand was cheaper. But no matter,they are soft and seem to be built pretty nicely. I always love getting brushes in these boxes!

Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Retail price: $79

I have tried this before and I love it! It is so expensive though, so I never picked it up. Very thankful that I get to have it again.

Small Z-Palette Retail price: $14

I can always use a Z-Palette. I think this one will be great for travel. I think the BoxyCharm symbol being on it is a really nice touch. It does contain the pans and stuff like when you buy a Z-Palette.

Real Her Lipstick “Boss” $18:

Some how all my pictures got lost of this:(. But, it’s a beautiful berry shade! Paraben and cruelty free. I also did a video of this unboxing, so you can see it, Here!

Makeup Geek “Anarchy” and “Mirage” $12:


I got the 2 shadow pans in Anarchy and Mirage. Believe it or not, these are the first Makeup Geek shadows I have tried, and I am really excited to have them. I will use both shades a ton!

I hope to you enjoyed this post and thank you for reading! Here is the companion video. What sort of posts and videos would you like to see? Comment below!

Fortune Cookie Soap Box Spring 2017! 

First and for most, I owe you an explanation as to where I have been. I have Borderline Personality Disorder, I was diagnosed 6 years ago. I really do not want to go too much into it, because it is a difficult topic for me to talk about. The past few weeks my medications have been being changed, so I was, for lack of a better statement, not my self. If you have any questions about BPD just ask, but that is all the explanation I am willing to give on this post.

Now, for the fun part of this post. The Spring 2017 Fortune Cookie Soap Box unboxing! This box comes four times a year and is in the $20 range. If you are addicted to body care like I am, then you are about to fall in love!

This seasons theme is Beauty and The Beast!

This box had a lot more than I was expecting, so let’s dive in.

Happily ever after toner tablet:

This is supposed to be very gentle and full of great skin care ingredients. This is what you can use during a facial steam. I have never done this, but I am going to try it!

Tame the beast detangling spray:

I thought it was a bit funny that we got a detangler, because the morning before I got the box I was mentally reminding myself to pick one up. I have then hair that falls out, in clumps. So, I often have hard to handle tangles. Let’s hope that this fantastic smelling product can work some magic.

Lumiere tea light candle:

I am not usually one for tea light candles, because they usually only seem decorative. But, this one smells amazing! I am going to pick up a tea light holder so I can use this and not worry about the wax getting everywhere.

Bonjour whipped body cream:

I love body creams and butters. I use the twice a day, so I go through them fairly fast. I really like how citrusy this one smells, I think it will be great for morning use!

Magic mirror hand sanitizer:

From what I have seen in other unboxing, you get a hand sanitizer in every box. I constantly use and have handsanitizer on me, maybe this will keep me away from the bath and body works ones! By the way, magic mirror smells great.

There’s something sweet perfume oil:

I am in love with this scent! I need a full size. It is very floral, but has a very clean under tone. I will be wearing this all spring!

Beauty lip tint:

I really like these kind of lip tints for days that I wear makeup, but don’t want to do too much. This one is a little too light, and the scent isn’t the best. We will have to see how it works out. It is such a small size as well, but I am not too upset about that sense I so many.

Enchanted rose soap:

It is so pretty that I do not want to use it! A huge part of me wants to use it as decoration in my bathroom, but I also want to use it because it smells fantastic. I think I have said it before, but I prefer bar/solid soaps.

Over all opinion? I am in love. I will be buying more from this brand and I will continue to receive this seasonal box.
