Pique Tea review


Like tea, but hate how long  it takes  to makes? Running out the door and  do not have time ? Then this Product and review are  for you!

Pique Tea has crystallized tea and  put it in single serving packs. The Tea can be mixed into Hot or cold water.

I was given a variety pack so I could try  more then one flavor . I prefer cold/sweet tea and my Fiance Prefers hot tea so I had him also try them with me.


WHAT WE THOUGHT:
We both love how much easier it is to pour and go instead of having to have it steep. I drink tea in the morning and bring it in a thermos to work, thought I try and let its  steep before work some times I have to have to put it in and head to work which leaves it way to strong for me( my drive to work is 15 min).  with the packets I no longer have to worry about it. I can pour it in add in my honey and go.

My fiance likes  how fast they are as well  since normally hes to lazy and asks me to make him tea :P  but now he can put our kettle  on and once the water is ready just pour it along with the packet in and be ready to go.

All of the flavors taste great as well :) You really can not go wrong with any of them. They are sold in single flavor packs and variety packs at their store in  SF California or their website

Maybelline Color sensation Vivid Matte Liquid Vox Box Review


I received a VoxBox from Influenster  containing 2 Maybelline Color Sensation Vivid matte Liquid for free in exchange for my Honest review.
#review #ad






I was excited to see that I was selected  for another Vox Box from Influenster.  This time It was for Maybellines new color sensation Vivid Matte Liquid!  I received two colors 
"Nude Flush"



 "Rebel red"


My review:
They claim that if you do one swipe/coat then you will get a matte finish but if you do more then one then it will be more of a creamy/ mouse texture/ finish. With that being said I have not been able to get it to be matte since I can not get 1 swipe/coat to not be patchy. So I have been wearing it with more the creamy texture.  This might be user error but I have tried Repeatedly.

Both are Extremely Pigmented  and beautiful colors!  Though Reds are not really a color I use often, I have been loving "rebel red"! It is very flattering on. I have always LOVED nude lipstick and I Absolutely LOVE  "Nude Flush"  it has become one of my go to nudes.

 There is two Negatives I have found for these.
1. VERY strong perfume scent/taste :( .
2. Maybelline Is NOT a cruelty free brand


I would recommend these to anyone that does is not sensitivity to strong scents/tastes as well as those who  do not mind that they test on animals.  Though I only buy cruelty free I do review products that are sent to me through companies like influenster or ipsy( I pay for my subscription).


I was sent these for free from influenster in exchange for an honest review. #review #ad

St. Ives® Live Radiantly VoxBox

I received  St. Ives® Nourishing and soothe oatmeal and Shea butter lotion , along with the Nourished and smooth body scrub  From Influenster to review.






I have Very sensitive skin and eczema on my hand so I was excited to try both of these from St. Ives®.
First of all the scrub is VERY gentle and does not leave your skin feeling dried out like most scrubs do! It did not flair up my eczema on my hand up at all and my skin was left feeling soft!


The lotion was great as well. It smells great and it very soothing! my only complaint with it is that its not a very thick consistency at all which is what i prefer in a lotion. with that being said it still gets the job done and does not irritate your skin in the process!

My Review:
Now on to the product. Like always I had my fiance try them both with me since he also enjoys skin care products. 

What you need to know about our skin types.

age:25

His:
age 37
Combo skin, and tends to get a lot of black heads ( mainly on nose)

My review
Due to my skin type I did not use this mask as much as my fiance did. I  get dry patches around my eyes and along my jaw line so that is where I placed the  mask while using one of  their other  masks everywhere else on my face. It left my skin feeling soft  and moisturized.  another plus is the mast smells great :)

My fiances  review:
He loved the smell and the feel of  the  Ultra Plumping Hydration mask on his face. It made his skin feel and look smoother. His skin looked more glowing then normal. Over the 2 weeks of using it 2-3x a week his wrinkles ( around his eyes and forehead) have slowly softened

Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask and Eternal Youth Scrub Review








Disclosure: One or more of these products may have been given to me for free for review purposes, All opinions are 100% my own and I would only recommend products that I love and think my readers will love.

Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask description from the company
" A natural kaolin clay and botanical based mask that gently removes excess, dirt and oil while deeply cleansing and exfoliating the skin to reveal softer, smoother skin."

SOME OF ITS INGREDIENTS ARE:

Kaolin Clay,Plant Stem Cells , Spirulina ,CoQ10




Eternal Youth Exfoliating Scrub  description from the company
"A refreshing scrub with green and white teas partnered with a trio of tropical butters."

SOME OF IT'S INGREDIENTS ARE:

Aloe Vera, Jojoba Beads ,Olive, Avocado & Kukui Butter



MY REVIEW:

First of all I have to say that I LOVE how much the company cares about their products, the ingredients, and their customers. I love that they are cruelty free  since as you guys know I LOVE animals and I love all my four legged children. So that is VERY important to me.

Now on to the product. Like always I had my fiance try them both with me since he also enjoys skin care products. 

What you need to know about our skin types.


Mine: 
Combo ( more on the oily side) , acne prone ( cystic acne as well) , sensitive skin, rosacea 

His:
Combo skin, and tends to get a lot of black heads ( mainly on nose)

*** FUNNY SIDE NOTE: While I have been  typing this my fiance asked if we can use the scrub and masks so I took a 10 min brake to use the scrub , This clay mask and their moisturizing mask (using both masks in only targeted spots)


Eternal Youth Exfoliating Scrub review:


First I have to say that I love face scrubs because I get acne flair ups a lot  and they seem to work the best to keep them at bay and also almost stop my cystic acne flair ups.  When I first used this Natural Exfoliating Scrub I fell in love since not only did you see a difference with my black heads being gone but I also felt a difference.My face felt cleaner and moisturized at the same time which is NOT something that happens with MOST scrubs. Most face scrubs I have used leave the skin feeling on the dry side but since this one has  Olive, Avocado & Kukui Butter.

My fiance was excited to see we got to try this due to him being prone to get black heads on his nose a lot. So he wanted to try this right away. Once he used it we saw a MAJOR difference especially  on his nose since he had a lot of black heads there. We have tried different scrubs in the past but this one worked the best for him since not  only could you see the black heads were gone right away but they also stayed gone for longer.  


Pros:
cleans out your pours
skin feels soft and moisturized
Great size/price
Smells great

Cons:
None



Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask review:


I was VERY excited to try this detoxifying facial mask since as I stated I have acne/ cystic acne along with black heads. Clay masks are amazing for pulling everything  out of your pores as well as helping get rid of extra oil on your face. Like the scrub this one did not disappoint.  Only down fall to this one is that it burns/stings a bit. At first I thought it was just my sensitive skin but my fiance had the same problem with it. Its not so bad that  you have to wash  it off but it was noticeable to bring it up in this review. With that being said it left my skin looking soft and nice and clean. I love this mask paired with the scrub. 


My fiance does not have problem skin except for  his nose( he has a lot of black heads) so he only put the mask there and use another of their mask on the rest of his face( review soon to come ).  He loved how well it pulled everything out of his pores on his nose without drying his face out at all like most clay masks.



Pros:
Works great
leaves you skin feeling nice, soft and clean
Does not dry your skin out
Price

Cons:
Burns/stings a bit the first few times

My Review:
For reference  I had my fiance try it out with me. Since we are 12 years apart as well as different skin types  I thought It would help with the review. Im 25 with combo/acne prone/ sensitive skin with bad dark circles. He is 37 with oily skin, puffy under eyes with fine lines and wrinkles.

What I thought:
First of all it smells AMAZING and I love that it comes in a bottle with a pump.
I applied morning and night after washing my face. Since I have had a HORRIBLE cold the last 2 weeks  my dark circles were  even worse then they normally are. when I first applied  the eye cream it made my eye area nice and soft.Within about 2-3 days I could see a noticeable difference  with my dark circles. They were not nearly as noticeable and all the puffiness has gone away.  One last thing that I found great was that it did not irritate my sensitive skin.


What he thought:
He also LOVED the smell of it and liked that it did not have a flowery smell.  he had me apply it to him and after about 3 days you could start to see his fine lines  and wrinkles going away . It left his eye area soft and moisturized as well as took away the little dark circles that he had.




Pros:
Smells amazing
Has a pump for easy use
Works great
leave your under eyes feeling soft
Does not irritate my sensitive skin

Cons:
NON
