Target Beauty Box June 2017 | Fathers Day Edition

*not a monthly box, have to catch it when released, this one way $7.*

Father’s Day is coming up, so Target took the opportunity to also offer a men’s box this month. It contains 7 items. That makes everything $1 an item! 

Nivea Men Creme

This is something my SO has tried before and loves. He hates buying stuff like this though, because my grandmother stock piles with coupons and he gets alternatives through that. 

Specifically designed for men, this multipurpose Creme moisturizes without feeling greasy. 

Olivina Men All-in-1 Body Wash

The scent included is Burbon Ceder. I am personally in love with the scent. My SO likes it as well. It is warm and earthy, but not overly masculine. I would use it, honestly! It’s a great travel size as well. 

Schick Hydro 5 Men’s Razor

Razors are expensive. That’s all I have to say. 

Dove Men + Care Elemnets Deodorant 

I think this travel deotorant is larger than the travel Sizes at the store! It is scented with sage a smells great. It claims to protect from odor and sweat for 48 hours. I’m sure he will get use out of this.

Colgate Optic White Radiant Tooth Paste

This is supposed to be a fantastic tooth paste. Who can’t use tooth paste!? 

Everything aside, I have already stole this from him and started using it 😂 Swiped!!

Yes to Natural Men Cleansing Wipes

We do a lot of hiking and camping during the summers. I am sure these will ended up used during a trip. I have seen a lot of products like this meant for men lately! 

AXE Adrenaline Cool Charge Body Wash

I think my SO will enjoy this, but I really dislike mint. It is mint and ginger scented. It is a nice travel size though.

This post was a tiny bit different! I hope you enjoyed it, thank you for reading!!

So, I got one of those Ipsy offer sets. 

You know how Ipsy has their limited time offers? I finally got one. I can’t recall what it was called and there was literally no packaging slip in the box, for me to refresh my memory. I do remember that it cost me $15 and had something to do with pampering. 

The Sea Weed Bath Co. Hydrating Sea Weed Bath: I have never used a product like this, so I am a little worried about it leaving stuff in my tub. I am really to try anything once. It is cruelty free, gluten, SLS, and Paraben free.

Ahava Deadsea Water Mineral Hand Cream: This stuff smells amazing, almost exactly like baby lotion. I have it on my hands right now and they feel fantastic. Into my purse it goes. 

Everbelle Calm Balm: This product can be used on your hands, face, hair, lips, and body. It is a great texture, and has a beautiful lavander scent to it. 

Not Soap Radio Lemon and Sugar Body Lotion: I have wanted to try a product from this brand for a while, no I finally get to even if t is a baby size. It has a really fresh sweet scent, it is going to be perfect for travel.

Ritual Spa Yogi Flow Foaming Shower Gel: I have never used a Foaming shower gel before. This “Yogi Flow” is Indian rose and sweet almond oil scented. I am actually pretty excited to try this. 

Erbaviva Shaping Oil Phase One: I am not exactly sure how this is supposed to work with the other 3 phases. It is made with organic essential oils of grapefruit, pink pepper, and ginger. If anything I can use it like a toner. 

That’s all that was in the set! I am really thrilled to get to th some new body care products, I just wish that I could remember what the set was called! 

Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed this post! What are your favorite body care products? 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.

What did you think of this unboxing? Have you ever tried fortune cookie soap products? Comment below! Thank you so much for reading and I apologize again for my absence.

Ulta Haul!


I know what you’re thinking, “Manda you just did a nice sized haul, what are you doing? Stop wasting money!”

Well, I have an acceptable reason for the beauty junkie community. I was waiting for midnight to hit the other day so I could order the Nikkie Tutorials and Too Faced colab and I decided, I would reward myself for my promotion at work. There fore, this haul was born.


I am going to start with the Soap and Glory items.

I really enjoy the SHHHH! Flake Away Body Polsih and I am almost our off my current exfoliator, so I picked this tub up. Soap and Glory had a little free gift with a $25 purchase. SO, I decided to get the Soaper Woman set which is on sale on Ulta’s site!  I then qualified for the free gift of a little Righteous Butter, I love this stuff and can never have enough.

HERE, is the brand section link on Ulta’s site for Soap and Glory.


I wanted to pick up some Makeup Revolution items, sense I love my one highlighter so much.

I picked up 2 more highlighters, “Peach Lights” and “Radiant lights”.  They are both very pretty! I am sorry there are no swatches in this haul, but I have specific posts I want to do for each item. After reading other blogs, I have came to notice that reviewing individual products frequently, seems to be a fruitful tactic to bring in more readers.


I had to get the New-Trals vs. Neutrals palette. It is just so pretty and I am really loving peach looks lately.

I wanted to try another palette, but could not decide! So, I picked the one with the best name. Unicorns Unite Salvation palette. I am really thrilled with it, so kudos to me for making a decision in a terrible way.

HERE, is the Makeup Revolution brand page on Ulta’s site.


Y’all, look at it! I know you are just seeing the packaging, but she is PERFECT. You get a palette with shadows, blushes, a highlight and a bronzer. You get a limited edition purple shade of the Better Than Sex Mascara, a FULL-SIZED black liner, a deluxe sample of shadow insurance, and a glitter! All for $56. But, is it worth it? You bet your buns I have a review with swatchs, looks, and all coming your way.

It is sold out online at Ulta currently, but it will be in stores Sept. 4th!

I hope you enjoyed this small haul. Don’t forget to like and follow and tell your friends! What products have you recently picked up? What products are you dying to see reviewed? Let’s talk in the comments!
