OFFICIAL SAVANA RAE: April 2018

EXCLUSIVE: THE MARC JACOBS BEAUTY EYE-CONIC FRIVOLUXE EYESHADOW PALETTE

No comments:

If you are someone who checks out my website regularly you'll probably be aware that Marc Jacobs has become a name that I enjoy pronouncing.


I am not going to lie but I am a sucker for a great product design.

When it comes to Marc jacobs Beauty not only do they design great high quality casing for their product line but they also have very avant garde makeup pigments.

I was sent by Marc JacobsBeauty

Marc Jacobs Beauty Frivoluxe Eye-Conic Eyeshadow Palette and all over shadow brush

The Marc Jacobs Beauty Frivoluxe Eye-Conic Eyeshadow Palette


Retails at £39.

The Marc Jacobs All Over Shadow Brush


Retails at £26.

The palette also comes with a sample of their Marc Jacobs Beauty  INVISIBLE UNDER(COVER) primer. I have reviewed this primer as part of my Marc Jacobs Makeover experience.

It wouldn't be fair if I reviewed the product without using the corresponding eye primer.

PALETTE CASING


The palette comes as a sleek black high quality compact which is thin and around 20cm in length. The mirror is great for doing your makeup on the go. The palette is secured by a metallic magnetic that clicks closure in place so that product is not affected.

Theres nothing I hate more than cheap packaging and this is the brand I truly adore for their innovative designs.

COLOUR RANGE OUTLINE


There are 7 pigments in this palette. At first glance, my attention was drawn directly to that violet colour which had me hypnotised.

Many of us are on the look out for efficient purple shade palettes which are so difficult to come by as purples are shades which are hard to produce.

The colours include greys, light peach, mauve, purple, taupe and violet.

I have not come across palettes with this colour range and as intense as what they appear.


SWATCHES


Prior to creating a look swatches come in handy to get an idea how the pigment appears on the skin. However this is not indicative of how they will perfom on the eyelid.

PIGMENT LOW-DOWN


FABULOUS!


This colour is a pearl sheen with a pink undertone. It did on first impression appear as a very light coverage shade of a powdery nature. It is buidable so the colour becomes intense upon layering it. I love it's smooth consistency. It is very long lasting and found it to be a great shade to use not only on the lid but also to highlight the brow bone and the inner corners of the eye.


ALWAYS


This was a incredibly sheer and light peachy pink with a hind of sparkle. It did have a satin finish.
Unfortunately with this shade you do need to build it up quite a bit to get that peachy pink to show up, but at least it did build to a light shade. I used this shade as the first shade to blend all over the eyelid as a base. However, I can see my self using this shade on those days that I go for a very natural but not bare eye.

DRESS


This shade is an intense dark plum and appears to have a shine to it. It is highly pigmented and applied wonderfully. It is creamy and silky smooth pigment which applies very easily. I did find it a little powdery so bear that in mind. I loved how   easy it is to work with. I would used this on the crease or outer edge of the lower lashes. It is a long lasting shade.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Frivoluxe Eye-Conic Eyeshadow Palette and all over shadow brush


OUTRAGEOUSLY


This was my favourite shade in terms of colour choice. It is that INTENSE POP of colour I love. It is a violet purple with a matte finish and cooler undertones. It is a very soft and buttery shade. It did need a little more work to blend out but I found it builded up nicely in the end mainly thats to eyelid primer used. This shade was partially powdery and long lasting too. This is a lovely shade to use on the eyelid to build up a purple smokey eye and beautiful also on the lower lash line.
This particular shade has my heart with it and I am willing to blend it out for a bit longer just to enjoy the colour pay-off.

HOW YOU WANT


This shade is extremely dark purple with a matte finish. It was so smooth and glided onto skin. I couldn't believe how easy it was to work it. This was the only shade which had quite a fair amount of fallout. As per the other shades besides being incredibly pigmented it also appeared to be very long-lasting. I would use this for a smokey eye either on the eye crease or the outer lower lash.


WHO HAS TIME


This shade is so beautiful and has this wonderful mauve colour with a slight metallic finish. Again as per standard was very smooth and easy to work with. I did find it was highly pigmented and long lasting. Such a wonderful shade that can be used in all the ways possible.

FOR LESS


This shade is a grey with a slight purple undertone. This was very smooth and pigmented. It was easily buildable and long-lasting. I have never worked with greys unless in the silver range but this is an interesting shade to own.


THE MARC JACOBS ALL OVER SHADOW BRUSH

Marc Jacobs Beauty Frivoluxe Eye-Conic Eyeshadow Palette and all over shadow brush

As per all the Marc Jacobs product range it is no surprise that this brush look the part with it's classy shiny black with a silver base.

For all those animal lovers you'll be glad to hear this is a synthetic brush.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Frivoluxe Eye-Conic Eyeshadow Palette and all over shadow brush

Being synthetic the question remains if whether or not it is able to apply powders with the outmost efficiency and retain product.

The answer, oh yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It retain and lays down the product effortlessly! I compared it to other brands I own and found it was the most efficient one at applying the shadows, which got my head in a spin.

BEST APPLICATION METHOD


I can't stress enough how important eye primer is. A lot of people tend to skip this part. However, I really recommend you to use it as it will allow those pigments to work well, blend well, look crease-free and last longer.

The primer felt fresh and wasn't sticky. It did have a slight pigment to it and dried fairly quickly which was nice.

MARC JACOBS FRIVOLUXE PALETTE EYE LOOK IDEA


I wanted to go for something that is very Marc Jacobs a bold and striking look. Be aware that I am not a makeup artist but rather a Makeup junkie.

MARC JACOBS FRIVOLUXE PALETTE PURPLE EYE LOOK


The shades I used are :

FABULOUS! → I used on the inner corner of the eye, eye brow bone and half of the lid.

ALWAYS → I used on the base of the eye, built it up as a base and blend it out.

OUT-RAGEOUSLY → I used it to give the eye that purple intense smoke and used it on the bottom half inner lash line.

HOW YOU WANT → I used it to blend it in the crease and give the eye depth. I also used it on the otter half lash line.

CHECK OUT MY YOUTUBE VIDEO TO SEE HOW I CREATED THIS LOOK



FINAL VERDICT


I enjoyed playing around with this palette and as usual can't get over how beautifully designed their entire makeup line is. It looks so elegant and luxurious.

I can't stress enough how important it is for you to use the UNDER(COVER) eyelid primer as it makes it so easy to work with those purple and grey shades. Only then, will you be able to enjoy the benefits of how workable the palette will end up being. I did notice that without the eyelid primer I found it much harder to blend out the product especially with that OUT-RAGEOUSLY violet pigment. I think this primer in conjunction to the palette is a must!!!!!

Marc Jacobs Beauty Frivoluxe Eye-Conic Eyeshadow Palette and all over shadow brush


BLEND PRO'S


DRESS, HOW YOU WANT and WHO HAS TIME were the easiest to work with and blended out effortlessly.

PIGMENT FAVOURITES


I did love the shades FABULOUS! , OUT-RAGEOUSLY and HOW YOU WANT. Those colours are my cup of tea.

The brush is really worth the purchase. I found it incredibly easy to apply the shadow with this specific brush. It is also very easy to clean and the bristles do not shed.


All in all, it is a lovely palette that allows the creation of daring looks which are not for the faint hearted. It is very much on the lines of Marc Jacobs catwalk makeup.

I enjoyed creating this look. What did you think of the look I created? I would love to know your thoughts below in the comment section.

THE AIR SIGN EYESHADOW PALETTE BY MAKEUP REVOLUTION - A KKW X MARIO PALETTE DUPE

No comments:

The Elements collection by Makeup Revolution comprises of 4 different palettes.


Each palette is dedicated to three different Zodiac signs.

The different Element palettes include: Fire, Earth, Air and Water.

In this case I will unveil:


The Revolution My Sign Eyeshadow Palette Air.

The Revolution My Sign Eyeshadow Palette Air.

It retails at £6.00


BUY HERE

The Revolution My Sign Eyeshadow Palette Air.

The Air sign is made up Aquarius, Gemini and Libra.

In the palette there are 15 unbelievable eyeshadows in matte and shimmery consistency.

The Revolution My Sign Eyeshadow Palette Air.

I was immediately drawn to the three eye catching central colours on the palette, these include 2 different emerald greens and an intense blue.


PALETTE CASING


The Revolution My Sign Eyeshadow Palette Air.

The palette comes within a glossy sleeve with a window to see the palette. The back includes some information on the 3 different star signs and I really love the detailed packaging.

The palette comes in a plastic mirrorless compact. The logo and front casing border are gold.

The palette does not included names for each pigment which is protocol for Makeup Revolution.

PALETTE SHADES LOW-DOWN

FIRST ROW


The Revolution My Sign Eyeshadow Palette Air. Swatches

GOLDEN PEARL SHIMMER


Very creamy and easily buildable shade. Perfect for use on the brow bone, inner eye corner or even as a highlighter in general.

COPPER/ORANGE SHIMMER


Highly pigmented and buttery shade. I would use this on the lid or even on the lower lash line to create a bold look.


LIGHT PURPLE SHIMMER


Highly pigmented with a slight fallout. It reminds me of the DESERT DUSK TWILIGHT shade.

ORANGE/PEACH MATTE


Highly pigmented matte shade. Ideal to use as a base colour as step one on the lid.

COPPER SHIMMER.


Highly pigmented and perfect for to use on the whole lid or bottom lash line.


SECOND ROW


The Revolution My Sign Eyeshadow Palette Air. Swatches

WHITE MATTE


Buildable white matte shade, perfect for the brow bone and inner eye corner. I did however find that it looks a bit dusty and is not as easy as the others to blend in.

TEAL SHIMMER


Highly pigmented teal shimmer. Definitely a striking shade which is perfect for the lid.

EMMERALD GREEN SHIMMER


Highly pigmented emerald green. As per all the shades above it was very easy to work with and I would use it on the lid.

COBALT BLUE SHIMMER


Highly pigmented shade which resembles the newly famous Blue in the KKW X MARIO palette. 


DARK GREEN MATTE


I didn't like this shade when I swatched it as it was very dusty, however when I applied it on the crease and blended it, it blended surprisingly well. It didn't even oxidise which I was initially worried about.


THIRD ROW


The Revolution My Sign Eyeshadow Palette Air. Swatches

TAUPE SHIMMER


I love this shade it's so pretty and highly pigmented.

DARK GREY SHIMMER


Highly pigmented grey shimmery shade with s hint of blue which is great for creating smokey eyes. 


DUSTY CHARCOAL MATTE


This shade has quite a bit of fallout however it is useful for creating smokey eyes. It can be used on the eye crease and outer lower lash line.

DARK GREY SHIMMER


Highly pigmented grey shimmer with a hint of purple.

BLACK MATTE


This shade was matte black but on the dusty side with quite a bit of fallout. It did work well if you want to line your eye to a matte black if you wet it.

FINAL VERDICT AND LOOK INSPIRATION

As you can tell the majority of the shades were very pigmented and performed quite well. Most of the shades are very easy to work with except for the first shade on the second row. 3 of the shades were very dusty and had fallout.

This was a fantastic performance for a palette that retails at only £6.

5 of the 15 shades resemble those in the KKW X MARIO palette, which is so exciting because I recreated a similar look to that created by the famous Mario Dedivanovic. 


I couldn't believe how similar and easy it was to recreate it with this palette and at a fraction of the price.

The Revolution My Sign Eyeshadow Palette Air. Makeup look kkw x Mario dupe look

This particular palette includes also 5 similar shades found in the DESERT DUSK HUDA BEAUTY palette.


I recommend this palette not only because of the price point but also because not everyone can afford to spend over £50 pounds on a single palette. This palette is such a great one and you will be able to recreate looks that we have seen all over social media as I did in this post.

I have really enjoyed this palette and all the pigments available in it. I am still surprised how easy it was to work with.

No comments:

Do you have an event coming up? Or a party where you just want to stand out? Don't know what to wear?


Look no further, you have clicked on the perfect link.

I hate the feeling of not knowing what to wear and rummaging through my closet in despair. I have times where I feel uninspired.

MotelRocks never lets me down.


They have pieces that are different from those you will find on the other mainstream websites so you will not be seen out wearing the same piece as someone else.

All their pieces have a great fit and are sawn to perfection. The best part about their dresses is that they are slightly pinched at the waist. This is amazing because they bring out your best assets.


Are you looking for a show stopper, that will drive your clique to envy?


Let me introduce you to:

Back of The Gabby Sequin Plunge Back Dress in Iridescent Green by Motel Rocks

This particular model is a best seller and I love that you truly sparkle with it. You will be giving people a sensory overload. 

ALL EYES WILL BE ON YOU.


It is not one of those cheap and uncomfortable sequin dresses but rather a soft well made one.

It fits as a bodycon dress would, exhibits long sleeves and a slight V back.

The skirt part reaches above the knee and the material stays well put as it doesn't ride up.

I adore this piece. This may be my actual favourite out of the trio of sparkly dresses I own from Motel rocks.


It is really comfortable, light weight and looks striking. I couldn't get eyes of me with this little number. I will let you be the judge of that.

HOW TO STYLE AN OVERSIZED T-SHIRT WITH AN EDGE BY MOTEL ROCKS

No comments:

I am no stranger when it comes to all MotelRocks garments. If you follow my blog you will be aware that I am lucky enough to be one of the Motel Rocks Girl Gang. 


You'll be probably thinking, hey Savana, but this is only a t-shirt. What am I going to even do with it?

Some people underestimate the options you can go for while styling your outfit with just a t-shirt.

I want to show you how many uses a high quality oversized t-shirt like this one can have.

Let me present to you the centre piece of this HOW TO.

Oversize Basic Tee in So Over It by Motel


Retailing at £28.


BUY HERE


Oversize Basic Tee in So Over It by Motel

The size I received is a SMALL and I generally wear between a UK size 8-10. It sits an oversize and not a tight t-shirt bear that in mind.

The material is wonderful and if you are questioning the price already remember that you are paying for 100% cotton and not those other mixtures other brands tend to sell.

This particular model is a black t-shirt with a red rectangular shape in the top middle quadrant of the garment with the SO OVER IT writing in white.


Many of us, have been so over it on some days and if you want a statement piece this is a great one to own. 

I can happily compare it to it being a Louis Vuitton SUPREME dupe.


They also have two ulterior styles in the same model. One is the Oversize Basic Tee in Rebel Girls Black by Motel and the Oversize Basic Tee in Rar Leopard Brown by Motel .

Let's get to the saucy part of this post.

5 WAYS TO STYLE THIS EDGY OVERSIZED T-SHIRT


1. Tuck it in a high waisted skirt.

Oversize Basic Tee in So Over It by Motel

This is one of my favourite ways to style a t-shirt. Not only do you end up looking on trend but you also look taller. High-waisted skirts give the illusion of longer legs.

MotelRocks have multiple models of high waisted skirts to pair them to, like the following models:


2. Pair it with a pair of high waisted trousers. 

Oversize Basic Tee in So Over It by Motel

With a great pair of high waisted trousers it will look great if you took the t-shirt in.

One great model to match to this t-shirt is:


3. Wear it on top of a jumpsuit.


You could tie the bottom part of the t-shirt to the side and make into a crop top.


4. Wear it under a leather Jacket.


You can take your edgy look up a notch and wear it with a leather jacket like this one in the link below.


5. Wear it on it on plain an simple.


Sometimes simplicity can be the most flattering format.


I gave you some ideas as to how you'd be able to have multiple uses for it to become a item of clothing that would be worth the purchase.

Oversize Basic Tee in So Over It by Motel

As with all Motel Rocks garments the fit is beautiful and the stitching is great.

I like this top in particular because it really looks and feels expensive unlike other high street brand t-shirts I have tried. I can't wait to show you in the upcoming weeks how I personally styled this and reveal to you more pieces of the collection.

THE CATH KIDSTON APRIL 2018 EDITION BIRCHBOX

No comments:

After last month's Birchbox brand extravaganza I have to admit that the bar was set very high in terms of expectations.


I have prepared myself to be blow away this month especially when a big brand like Cath Kidston is involved in this collaboration.

Cath Kidston is celebrating their 25th birthday. This theme is the month of sunshines and smiles.

BIRCHBOX BOX DESIGN


THE CATH KIDSTON APRIL 2018 EDITION BIRCHBOX

This by far the most beautiful box design I have come across so far. This beautiful english rose theme is so well suited to the beginning of spring. The roses are subtle and elegant.

BIRCHBOX VIDEO

The Birchbox logo and Cath Kidston logo are present in gold which makes the box even more beautiful.

THE CATH KIDSTON APRIL 2018 EDITION BIRCHBOX


CONTENTS


MODELCO - BAKED HIGHLIGHTER in MOONSHINE


This was the sample size, the full size retails at £24.

MODELCO - BAKED HIGHLIGHTER in MOONSHINE BIRCHBOX APRIL 2018

The casing consists of a circular mirrorless mini contact in a very dark navy and the ModelCo logo in silver.

It is odourless and I provides a lovely glow when swept on the cheekbones. The highlighter shows up as a bronze slash silver hue shine.

MODELCO - BAKED HIGHLIGHTER in MOONSHINE BIRCHBOX APRIL 2018


There's nothing I love more than a visible highlight as it makes your final look pop.

To be honest, I am not sure I would purchase it for as high as £24 as you can get equally good branded highlighters for this price point.

BEAUTANIQ BEAUTY - FILL + TAME BROW GEL in BRUNETTE


This was a sample size and full size retails £8.90.

BEAUTANIQ BEAUTY - FILL + TAME BROW GEL in BRUNETTE APRIL BIRCHBOX 2018

The casing it comes in is of mint green, The logo and writing comes in black with pink type pond leaves on the brush base.

For my vegan friends, this product is VEGAN!!!! It contains aloe leaf extract and glycerin which is great as you will not get flakes and sticky brows.

It smells creamy and exhibits a little brush perfect for eyebrow use. It brushes through the eyebrows great and allows only little pigment to be transferred which is really good as you don't want to end up with very obvious colour on your brows.

BEAUTANIQ BEAUTY - FILL + TAME BROW GEL in BRUNETTE APRIL 2018 BIRCHBOX

Be wary that it takes quite a bit of time to set , be careful it may transfer before it fries but at least it's not a dry formula. It did quite well considering fill and brow gels are not so easy to get right. When this pigment sets it will need a hardcore makeup remover to make it disappear.

It does overall tame and fill brows. It will work on sparse brows but if too much hair is missing you may well have to go in and fill them in with a brush.

CATH KIDSTON - HAND CREAM


This was a sample size and the full size only retails at £2.50.

CATH KIDSTON - HAND CREAM APRIL 2018 BIRCHBOX

As per the box theme, it has the same english rose design and exhibits the typical upside down cream container design. You rotate the cap and squeeze out the product.

They call it the Birthday rose design! I see it more of an english rose one.

The size of the same is great for on the go hand cream.

The scent of the cream is of a floral nature, it is not overwhelming at all but rather addictive. I love the smell it leaves behind. It doesn't fade easily.

CATH KIDSTON - HAND CREAM APRIL 2018 BIRCHBOX

In terms of the cream consistency, it is a thick white cream. It is moisturising and the great thing is that it doesn't leaves hands sticky and dries quickly to a satin finish.

This is definitely a product I would look to purchase, I did feel it was worth buying.

WHISH - SHAVE CAVE in ACAI GRAPEFRUIT


This was a sample size and the full size retails at £14.80.

WHICH - SHAVE CAVE in ACAI GRAPEFRUIT APRIL 2018 BIRCHBOX

The casing design is like that of an upside down squeezable cream. It comes in hot pink which a sleek black cap. The logo is in White.

It smells exactly as advertised, I find grapefruit over-baring so this scent would not be one I would chose.

It did allow a smooth shave and skin felt moisturised which is good as shaving is very harsh on our skin. This is probably due to the cream containing shea butter, jojoba oil and coconut oil.

However, I am not sure I would spend almost £15 on a shaving cream.

MARCELLE - BB CREAM GOLDEN GLOW ILLUMINATOR


This was a sample size and the full size retails at £25.50.

MARCELLE - BB CREAM GOLDEN GLOW ILLUMINATOR APRIL 2018 BIRCHBOX

It comes in the Marcelle brand colours which are white with a gold logo.

It comes in a thin cream type upside down casing with a rotating cap.

The BB cream has a bare scent which I can barely identify. At first look it has a typical foundation colour to it.

I generally hate BB cream, they are usually patchy and tranfer on clothes.

Hello Marcelle!!!!!!!! Wow this is the best BB cream I possibly tried. I suffer from slight redness and it covered it. It felt really light and can't believe what a subtle difference it gives the skin. This BB cream is quite hydrating, you will notice it when you wash your hands you will have that cream after feeling.


The BB cream SET!!!!!!!!!!! I couldn't believe it!!!!!!!!!


It gives you also a subtle natural glow and look. It feels light and looks like you have no makeup on but rather beautiful skin.


£25 for a BB cream is quite steep but you do get 45ml with the full size and also it is amazing!!!!!!!! If you are looking for a BB cream that performs efficiently this is the one to go for.

Best BB cream I have ever tried or come across. The king of BB creams. However, I did notice that later during the day it stuck to dry skin so it is not really suited to dry skin.

FINAL THOUGHTS


At first I felt really underwhelmed especially since last months box really was unbelievable. I did somehow feel this months birchbox was a waste of money but once I smelt that Cath Kidston hand cream and tried that Marcelle BB cream my opinion was slightly overturned.

Overall, I got the chance to find new favourites. It is no surprise with how well they did that I would purchase the Cath Kidston hand cream and really recommend it.

I really wanted Marcelle BB cream to be right for me but unfortunately it does not agree with dry skin.

I am not sure that I would have got this beauty box if I had already read a review and seen the contents. I prefer when they contain more makeup products.

MERMAID VIBES WITH THE AUGUST 2018 BIRCHBOX EDITION

No comments:

From the box design to the beauty box contents all you will get is mermaid vibes. 

The smell coming from it also gives you that sweet summer scent associated with beach vibes.


I absolutely adore this editions outer design.

The contents include 3 full size products and 2 sample size ones.

MERMAID VIBES WITH THE AUGUST 2018 BIRCHBOX EDITION

SPECTRUM COLLECTIONS - A05 BRUSH FROM THEIR MERMAID DREAMS SET


SPECTRUM COLLECTIONS - A05 BRUSH FROM THEIR MERMAID DREAMS SET

This brush is a sample from their full set of brushes from their Bomb Shell collection which retails at £59.99. Their full set comes with 10 different brushes.

If you've never come across this brand, rest assured that they are vegan and cruelty free.

The brush has a tapered end and a precise tip. This will come in handy for bronzer, highlighters or setting powders. It is of a very soft consistency.

I did find it picked up and laid it out the product well, considering it's a synthetic derived brush.

LOC - ONE AND DONE SHADOW STICK in Out of Shell 


LOC - ONE AND DONE SHADOW STICK in Out of Shell 

This full size eye shadow stick retails at £8.

How useful are those pencils which can be used on the lid as eyeshadows. I heard about LOC as a brand, but this is my first experience with it.

I really love the shade they provided, which is in OUT OF SHELL. The colour is of a light beige shine. The formula is very creamy and easy to work with. It does set after a few seconds. You can use it also as a liner and not only for a natural shine on the eyes.

This particular shade is lovely to use on the inner corner of the eye, brow bone and if need be and no highlighter is at hand you may wish to use it as a highlighter.

A truly useful product and a must have to keep in your makeup routine whether you are a makeup junkie or a soap and glory girl.

MERCI HANDY - ANTIBACTERIAL HAND CLEANSING GEL IN ASSORTED SCENTS

MERCI HANDY - ANTIBACTERIAL HAND CLEANSING GEL IN ASSORTED SCENTS

This particular size is their full size which retails at £2.90

One thing which is never missing from my bag is hand sanitizer so this is definitely a great one to purchase.


MERCI HANDY - ANTIBACTERIAL HAND CLEANSING GEL IN ASSORTED SCENTS

This gel has vitamins that ensure hydration and nourishment of your hands.

The best part of all, it honestly smells divine. I can smell hints of coconut, vanilla and musk. I adore this gel as it doesn't have that after smell of alcohol.


ORIBE- APRE'S BEACH WAVE & SHINE SPRAY


ORIBE- APRE'S BEACH WAVE & SHINE SPRAY

This spray comes as a sample size and retails at £20 for the full size.

It was designed you to give you an after beach hair look without having to get salt water in your hair leaving your hair shiny and textures.


ORIBE- APRE'S BEACH WAVE & SHINE SPRAY

It is to be used on wet hair and worked through with you fingertips. It exudes a light sweet scent after use and does allow even wavy hair to have that beautiful after beach look.

I am not sure if I would purchase it but it's nice to keep for the summer holidays at the pool or beach.

PALMER'S - COCONUT OIL FORMULA BODY LOTION


PALMER'S - COCONUT OIL FORMULA BODY LOTION

This lotion came as a sample size and retails at $4.19 for the full size.

Who doesn't love Palmer's products.

The lotion is light and very hydrating. Thanks to it's coconut components and Tahitian monoi oil , it keeps skin moisturized till the next day.

I will be more than happy to purchase the full size and this is a great sample size to carry with you everywhere.

FINAL THOUGHTS


This months edition was truly worth the subscription to Birchbox. I can say that I loved each and every single product. It was well worth the money spent.


If like me you have missed out on past boxes, they occasionally offer deals where you can get 2 boxes for the price of one. Here, you will be able to test out new products you may have previously missed out on.
