Noella Beauty Works

Hello everyone!!! Last week I won an eyeshadow on Etsy from Noella Beauty Works. All of her mineral eyeshadows are 100% natural. No synthetic dyes, fragrances or preservatives. The shadows come in 5 gram jars with a sifter, and are packed and tapped down for a maximum fill. I don’t really have any purple eyeshadows, so I chose the color Lilac. Lilac is part of her silk collection. This collection has eyeshadows that are matte with a hint of shimmer, and goes on silky smooth.


Well...............drum roll............. I like it!! This color looks great on my skin tone and is very pigmented. I’ve tried different brands of natural mineral eyeshadows, and their colors were not pigmented at all! Like she said, this color is matte with a hint of shimmer, and goes on silky smooth. It feels soooooo nice. Her eyeshadows are similar to the texture of the eyeshadows from Alima Pure, which is a plus for me because I love their eyeshadows. Noella Beauty Works has lots of pretty colors (I have my eyes on the Pink Gerbera color),  so stop by her shop and take a look! She's also getting ready to launch a foundation line too!

Mario Badescu Sample Review


1.) Special Cleansing Lotion “C”: The Cleansing Lotion is a toner.  It took off any traces of dirt the cleanser left behind. My face felt moisturized after using it.

2.) Botanical Facial Gel: It didn’t really give me the clean feeling I wanted.

3.) Drying Mask: I gave in and used it. The smell was still terrible. It felt like a regular clay mask.  I'm not sure if it worked or not. 

4.) Kiwi Face Scrub: It didn’t exfoliate. It felt nice on my skin though.

5.) Oil Free Moisturizer: Pretty good. Didn’t leave me oily at the end of the day.

6.) Drying Cream:  It didn’t dry anything.

7.) Hyaluronic Eye Cream: I woke up the next day with tiny red bumps around my eyes. It was so sad.


Conclusion:
The only product I really liked was the Special Cleansing Lotion. I might buy it in the future. Some people say that they love these products, and that it takes time to see the results. It may or may not help you. Everyone is different.  I’m going to stick with my current skin routine. I’m still on the lookout for better products.

 My samples are here woot woot!!! I received the "try samples" email on Sept. 10th and they arrived on the 20th.


1.) Special Cleansing lotion “C”
2.) Botanical Facial Gel
3.) Drying Mask
4.) Kiwi Face Scrub
5.) Oil Free Moisturizer

It also came with a product application guide and a product guide booklet. They add your name to the application guide which is neat. It made me feel special lol! This guide just tells you how to apply the products in the morning and in the evening.The product guide is a catalog of all their products.



I’m going to try them out this week. Everything smelled decent except for the Drying Mask. It smells like something that would come from an auto shop. I don’t know if I’m going to be able to use it. I’ll give a review on the samples next week.

Yummo!!




This was so good I had to blog about it^^ I think the dish is called Bun Bo Xao or Vietnamese vermicelli noodles, beef, vegetables and an egg roll lol! The whole time I was eating it I was thinking, Where have you been all my life!!!


"Yum Yum for tha Tum Tum," as my sister and I would say^^

DIY Acne Mask: Honey, Baking Soda & Cinnamon

This is a great home remedy for people who have acne or occasional breakouts. I use this mask twice a week at night. I have sensitive skin and I did not break out in a rash. After using this mask, I have notice that it has reduced the size of my occasional pimples and it is fading away my scars.



What You Will Need:
1 tablespoon of honey
1 teaspoon of baking soda
½ teaspoon of cinnamon
Bowl
Spoon

Directions:
1.) Mix 1 tablespoon of honey, 1 teaspoon of baking soda and ½ teaspoon of cinnamon together.
2.) Wash face and pat dry
3.) Apply the mask and leave on for 15-20 minutes
4.) Wash mask off with cold water and pat dry
5.) Moisturize

Benefits:


Honey: Kills acne causing bacteria and absorbs impurities from the pores on the skin. It moisturizes and conditions your face without making it oily. It’s also rich in vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.
Cinnamon: A natural astringent and anti fungal treatment.

Baking Soda: Removes dirt, dead skin, and unclogs pores. It also fades acne scars.

**I’m not doctor, but you should not use this mask if you are allergic to any of these ingredients. Try it on a small area first. If you do have a reaction, you should stop using this mask.

African Black Soap


I recently started using organic products on my hair and decided to use organic products for my face as well. I purchased some African Black Soap after hearing great reviews on YouTube and other websites. I usually have a few bumps here and there due to stress. When the bumps go away I’m left with blemishes. I also have VERY SENSITIVE skin that will break out in a rash easily, so I’m pretty cautious when choosing products for my face. African Black soap is a natural soap so I figured it can only do more good to my skin than harm.

I’ve been using the soap and for almost a month now and I am loving the results? I’ve seen a huge improvement in my skin. The Black soap has helped clear up my bumps and blemishes and has helped my skin look more radiant and healthy. Plus I didn't break out in a rash!

Benefits of African Black Soap:


• Helps clear skin of bumps & spots
• Helps reveal radiant, fresh & healthy skin
• Helps relieve acne, oily skin & other skin problems such as eczema
• Great for removing make-up
• Helps against premature facial lines

Try it out for yourself!!!!

An animal in my window

Today I woke up to the sound of a baby possum in my escape window ! Yes a possum. Not a cat...not a dog... a possum. You know like the ones from Ice Age? Yeah that one.




I heard little scratches on my window at 7 A.M. and didn't check to see what it was until 8 A.M. I open up my curtains and there it was scratching on the window like LET ME OUT! It was so cute and tiny. I couldn't help but say AWWWWW!
I had to let it hang on a rake to get it out. I hope it finds its mommy.




So far I've had a cat, a baby bird, and now a possum in my window!
