Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick in Pink Grapefruit review


I am a big fan of Neutrogena products so I was extremely happy when I received a Moisture Smooth Color Stick in Pink Grapefruit in my latest Walmart Beauty Box.  You can see my unboxing post here. I tried it out over the weekend and I was really impressed. It went on smooth and felt lick a really nice lip balm.  The color was a pretty pink and looked really good.  I look forward to seeing how it looks with different color lip liners. This lipstick will most certainly be in heavy rotation.   Below is a swatch.

Winter & Spring 2016 Walmart Beauty Box Unboxing


The Walmart Beauty Box rarely disappoints; and the winter  2016 box is no exception. Included are a variety of samples that i'm looking forward to. First we have the L'Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Total Repair 5 Restoring Shampoo and the L'Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Total Repair 5 Restoring Conditioner .  I've never tried this brand before but I have a few trips coming up so I will give this a try.  Next is the  Ken Paves You Are Beautiful Smoothing ConditionerKen Paves You Are Beautiful Smoothing Shampoo and the Ken Paves You Are Beautiful Thick Conditioning Mask. Again another brand I haven't tried before but i'm really excited about the mask.  My hair needs some TLC. Probably the product i'm most excited to try is the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Boosters Facial Cleanser with white tea and vitamin E. I love every Neutrogena product that I have tried especially the face cleansers.  I have high hopes for this new face wash.  On first impressions the scent is amazing.  Also included is the Aussie Mega Hairspray.  This is perfect timing for me since I just finished my hairspray on my last trip.  This is definitely going with me on my upcoming travels. The final sample included in the Winter 2016 box is the NIVEA Soft Moisturizing Creme.  I have bought this creme twice already and I love.  The scent is so delicate and nice.  The texture is soft and deeply moisturizing. This sample will be gone real quick.  Overall i'm really excited about this box and will let you know what I think.  


First things first will you look at this box.  It is so pretty and so was the products inside.  I was so happy when I open this box and saw all of the great items inside.  First up is Colgate's Optic White Platinum Express White Fresh Mint Toothpaste. This is my favorite toothpaste and it really whitens your teeth and leaves your breath feeling fresh. Also inside was Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer with Nourishing Monoi Oil. The idea of using lotion in the shower makes me nervous; I envision putting it on and than proceeding to slip and break my neck.  Death by lotion will be written on my tombstone. I'll still give it a try but if you see no more blog posts from me you'll know what happened. Next up is the Banana Boat SunComfort SPF 30 Sunscreen Lotion. With summer coming this will come in handy for all of the trips to the beach.  I'm always searching for great facial cleansers and one of the b est ones I've ever tried is Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. This will definitely be getting used up. I'm really looking forward to trying out the RoC Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Chest, Neck, & Face Cream. I will probably pass the Curel Rough Skin Rescue Lotion since she has really dry skin.  Dove makes really great body was but I have never tried the Dove Dry Oil Moisture Body Wash.  It doesn't really have a scent but sometimes that is good.  I don't like when the scent of my soap interferes with the perfume i'm wearing.   The product I am most excited about in the spring 2016 box is the Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in the color Pink Grapefruit.  I am a lipstick junkie and this color is beautiful.  **Does Happy Dance**

Movie Review: Criminal


I was lucky enough to score some free passes to screen to the new Ryan Reynolds and Kevin Costner movie Criminal. Let me give you a quick plot synopsis.  Kevin Costner plays a crazy convict who has a deceased CIA agents, played by Ryan Reynolds, memories implanted into his brain so that the CIA can get all of the information the agent had regarding a terrorist. I really enjoyed this movie.  I love movies with lots of action and this one definitely delivered.  I also love smart movies.  Basically a movie that makes me think always makes me love it more and criminal definitely made me think about whether or not this could actually happen.  This movie is in theaters April and I highly recommend that you go see it.
