Bliss 'Pout'-O-Matic Lip Polisher - Must Have Gadget or Gimmick?!?! (NOT Cruelty-Free)

***I'm breaking my own rules with this review because Bliss appears to sell in China so it is not cruelty-free, though I thought they were when I bought and wrote this review. I decided to post the review anyway so that those who are still interested can learn more about the product, but I'm a bit torn about what to do with this product now. ***

I don’t know about any of you, but my lips have been super dry and flaky lately. I’ve been exfoliating them regularly, constantly conditioning with lip balm, and still nothing I seem to try makes much of a difference. I heard a few positive reviews of the Bliss Fabulips ‘Pout’-O-Matic Spa-Powered Lip-Perfecting System and, out of sheer desperation, I decided to give it a try myself. It’s a weird little battery powered gadget that, when used in conjunction with Bliss’ Fabulips Sugar Lip Scrub (included in the set), is supposed to give you smooth, soft, full lips. It actually reminds me of a dentist’s toothbrush, but I’m sure it’s more gentle! J If you want to hear how it’s worked, keep on readin’!

Vegan Cuts March Beauty Box Unboxing

I don't think I ever got around to posting February's Vegan Cuts Beauty Box, but I have March's ready to go. I'll just say right now that I was really pleased with the March box! :) As I always try to do, I'm just gonna jump right into it instead of rambling on and on about nothing. So, I give you… March's Vegan Cuts Beauty Box! :)

March Ipsy Bag - Late as Always! :)

I'm sorry I've been MIA lately. There's just been too much going on and I have barely had time to sit down, let alone keep up with the blog. So, apologies for that. But that's not why you're reading this, so let's unzip this Ipsy bag and get on with the show, right? :) This month Ipsy introduced a new gimmick with their bags - the print is actually artwork! I've lost the tag that gave the details (very out of character for me), but March's bag reminds me of…well, bacteria or body cells. To be completely honest, I think it's rather ugly, but it's a cool concept! So, what did this weird medical experiment of a bag have in store?

March Favorites 2014! Acure, Antipodes, Zoya, Julep, Illamasqua & Too Faced

It’s time for March Favorites already! March has been rather crazy. If I haven’t been sick, someone else has and I’ve been trying to help out as much as I can.  I kind of feel like I’ve been running around like a headless chicken! Given that, I’ve just been completely and totally exhausted and I haven’t bothered much with makeup throughout the month. But fear not, I managed to come up with a few favorites for the month. A lot of them are sort of rediscoveries with one lone makeup item. So, instead of going on and on about my own personal March Madness, I’m just gonna jump into the Favorites! J

BirchBox - March 2014 Unboxed

I feel a need to apologize for the lack of posts lately…and this one being so late! Between having a bad back, a bad cold and unexpected family stuff recently, I've just been too exhausted to put a lot of effort into, well, much of anything. Thinking just plain hurts! :) But I think I'm finally ready to at least post my March BirchBox…and eventually the other March boxes. Hopefully I will have my Monthly Favorites ready to go by the end of the week too. But time will tell. :/ So, let's get on to the point of this post and see what was in March's BirchBox!!!

My Current Hair Care Routine for Lifeless, Dry, Color-Treated Hair w/ Acure, Giovanni, Avalon Organics, Earth Science, Badger, Mineral Fusion & Living Proof

Firstly, let me say that I feel somewhat narcissistic writing a post about my Current Hair Care Routine because I feel like I’m bragging about how wonderful my hair is and that everyone should be envious of it. That’s not at all my intent. I actually don’t think I have great hair, but I feel like this particular routine has made a difference in the softness, shine and overall condition of my hair. So, because of that, I thought I would share what I’ve been using on my hair to improve it!


For starters, I’ll try to describe my hair. I have chest-length, heavily color-treated hair that is often dry, dull and damaged. I have quite a bit of very fine hair strands that love to stick to themselves, creating horrible knots that make brushing while wet an absolute nightmare. My scalp has been dry and flaky, but the roots of my hair are quite prone to oiliness. Whew! Quite the lot, eh? J So, what on earth could possibly remedy all these complaints? I went on a mission to find out and these are my findings!!! J
