Target Beauty Box June 2017 | Hello Sunshine 

*not a monthly box, have to catch it when it goes up! This one was priced at $7*

Hawaiian Tropic Island Sport Sunscreen 


It’s summer time, so sunseeen is a must have. I like the Hawaiian tropic brand, everything always smells so good and this Island sport is not exception! 

John Frieda Beach Blonde Sea Salt Spray


I have have that is naturally pretty wavy, so I love using Sea Salt spray in my hair! I used to love the Josh Frieda Blonde line, but quite because it is not cruelty free. 

Masque Bar Soothing Sheet Mask


I am with out a doubt addicted t sheet masks. This one is meant to hydrate and smooth skin. Giving you a healthier complexion.

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Treatment 


This is a cult favorite product that I have yet to try. Aussie is not cruelty free, but it is something I have always wanted to try. This is a fantastic travel size for a deep conditioner as well.

Schick Hydro Silk Women’s Razor


With the price of those box, you are essentially paying a dollar for this razor… hell yeah! Razors can be super expensive.

Sinful Colors Nail Polish “Island Coral”


This isn’t exactly my color, but you can’t beat a full sized nail polish. I will probably paaa this onto a friend.

NYX Gotcha Covered Concealer “medium”


A NYX Concealer for essentially $1!! 

This one is supposed to be infused with coconut oil, and be water proof! I really hope it is light enough for me. I doubt it though, I am fairly fair. 

That’s it for this months Box, I can’t wait to see what next months holds!

Thank you so much for reading and I really hope you enjoyed this post!

May 2017 Beauty Empties

This month I am not going to be doing a video this month, so I am going to try to relay all my thoughts on these products through a post, wish me luck! 😂


Marshmallow Fireside Wall Flower: This scent was really nice and warm. I am trying not to purchase from Bath and body works any longer.

Repurchase: Probably not.

Molly Rose Lip Scrub: I love lip scrubs and I got this one in a vegan Cuts box. I really dislike the packaging of this though. I have tried other products from this small company and I really want to try more! 

Repurchase: No, because of the packaging. 

Ralph Lauren Tender Romance Sample: I hated this. The smell did not mix well with my body chemistry. Would not purchase.

Smash box Photo Finish Primer: I have a million samples of this primer, and I love it. But, it is really expensive…

Repurchase: Nope, too expensive.

Pacifica Transcendent Concealer Light: This is the lightest shade, but it is sadly too dark for me. It is also pretty oily.

Repurchase: No, it’s much too dark for me.


Men Degree Dry Protection: This is a Josiah empty! He liked it enough I guess. 😂 he did purchase a different one though. 


Sexx Bomb bath bomb: I got this at Mel’s Candles and I love it!!! It smells great and made my skin feel amazing.

Essence Clear Mascara: I used this to set my brows, it was alright.

Repurchase: Maybe after I go through the tons of  Brow gel I have now. 

Cover girl Clump Crusher Mascara: Another non-cruelty free item down!

Repurchase: Nope, it is not cruelty free. 

Odacite black cumin and cajeput serum sample: This sample came in a Petit Vour box. It was nice, but I don’t think I was able to use it enough to form any type of impression of it.

Purchase: Probably not, it is a little pricey.


I actually didn’t use up any of these three products, they were just expired. Would not purchase any of it again..

Proactive products: I didn’t like either of these products. They really irritated my skin. They are so old I do not even remember how I came about owning them. 

L’Oréal Smooth intense Cream: This product made my hair really oily, and I was not a big fan of the scent it had.


Tuscan Hills Vanila Almond Sugar Scrub: This was part of a set I got for Christmas from my best friend. It smelt amazing! But, this was just a Gel with what felt like beads in it… no Scrub to it at all.

Repurchase: No, it didn’t do anything.

Pai Rose Hip Serum: I have heard a lot of hype about this Serum, I have a review coming up soon, so I am not going to say anymore!

Ulta Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover Pads: I got these as a freebie. They were perfect for travel! 

Purchase: Yes! Awesome product. 

Aloepure Time Repair Serum: I got this in a BoxyCharm and it lasted me quite a while. I loved it for day and night.

Repurchase: I have a ton of moisturizer to go through right now, but maybe I will repurchase this one from aloe pure once I make a dent in my back stock.

Herbal Transdermal Deep Pore Mineral Toner: I got this Toner in a Vegan Cuts box and love it! I am so sad it is all gone.

Repurchase: Yes, best toner I have used.

Pocket Back Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin: the smell of this, omg, it is perfect. But, BBW is on my no shop list 😢. 

Stink Bug Naturals Tangerine Spice Deodorant: The smell of this is really sweet, but still spicy. Unfortunately, it did not help me keep my underarm odor at bay. But, I have heard there is a transition period of detox that your pits go through when changing to natural deodorant. 

Repurchase: Maybe, once I go through the few I have. 


BBW Sensual Body Wash: The smell of this soap is delicious. Unfortunately, my skin didn’t like it and it broke me out.

Repurchase: No.

Batiste dry shampoo “bare”: I want to try other dry shampoos. This one is good, I just want to try something new. What is your favorite dry shampoo?

Repurchase: yes, but later down the road. 

Dove Dry Spray Deodorant: This was my last non natural Deodorant!!! I’m glad it is gone, I did not like it. I only used it at night because it did literally nothing.

Repurchase: Nope.


Luxe by Mr. Bubble bubble bath: I went through a faze and fell back in love with the Mr. Bubble bubble bath. I bought a ton of stuff from their adult line. 

Repurchase: No, I am having too much fun with bath products from small and natural companies.

Studio 34 nail polish remover: Works fine. 

Repurchase: if it is the cheapest one when I need a new bottle.

L’Oréal Ever Pure Moisture Shampoo: I got this line from Influenster. It was nice. I have a really itchy scalp, this actually helped. 

Repurchase: No, L’Oréal is not cruelty free.

Suave Coconut Conditioner: This is what Josiah was using as a conditioner and I used it as a shave cream.

Repurchase: No, my grandma stick piles shampoo and conditioner, I just use what I am gifted. 


Baby wipes: I get these for a dollar and use them to remove swatches. Not much to say about them. 

Repurchase: Maybe when I run out of the wipes I’m using now. 

Konjac Sponge Co. Sponge: This was probably the best konjac sponge I have used. It was infused with charcoal.

Repurchase: already have! 

Briogeo Don’t Dispair Repair Hair Mask: I like this product a lot, and have gone through a ton of samples. I have an old review of it actually! 

Purchase: Probably not, there is a cheaper one I like just as much! 

Treseme Beautiful Volune Shampoo and Conditioner: I went through some of these samples last month as well. I don’t like this system for my hair type. 

Purchase: No.

Living Proof Restore Hair Treatment: I had heard good things about this treatment, but it did nothing for me. Smelled nice though.

Purchase: No.


Epielle Charcoal Sheet Mask: I got a pack of these for $2 at Big Lots. I had some in my Empties last month as well. 

Repurchase: Maybe, if I find out the brands CF status. 

Yes to Cucumbers Calming Mask: this mask had a really strong chemical smell, and it made my nose super red…

Repurchase: No

Yes to Tomatoes Skin Clearing Mask: I am really enjoying this sheet mask. It works great for hormonal break outs.

Repurchase: Already have. 

Ulta Anti Aging Papaya Mask: I enjoyed this mask, it fit really well.

Repurchase: not this specific one.

That’s everything I used up this month!! 

What did you use up this month? What is your favorite dry shampoo? Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed it.

*Ulta Sample Review* Kardashian Beauty Black Seed Dry Oil

kbdryoil

I got this with an Ulta purchase a while back and have been using it. I think samples are a fun thing to review, and it makes me try them which is good because you never know if you’ll find a new holy grail. In the case of this product, I did not.

The full sized product is $16.50, and in my opinion it is really not worth it. It does do a great job at making my hair soft and smooth. But, then again there are many cheaper oils that do the same thing. Besides it being not that special, the smell is TERRIBLE. IN my opinion at least.

“Kardashian Beauty Black Seed Dry Oil is a nutrient rich treatment and styling aid that rejuvenates and nourishes hair so it appears strong, thick, smooth and gloriously shiny. This ultra light formula is easily absorbed, instantly nourishing and smoothing to the hair with no residue left behind. Experience the luxury of pure Black Seed Oil for the ultimate glamorous finish.” From Ulta site.

I am not going to lie, it really does do what it claims, but I can not get over the smell. To me it smells like a vanilla scented product expired and got old. Some people like that type of scent, and more power to you, but I just can’t do it. The smell also lingers for a while, so it isn’t like you get a way from the smell easily.

Would I buy full size?

No, no I would not.

What Kardashian beauty products do you like? Have you tried/smelled this product? If so, what did you think?
