TATCHA Triple Recovery Cream Review

Hey everyone!

A little while ago, I was lucky enough to receive a sample of TATCHA's new Triple Recovery Cream to try out, so that I could review it for you!

Here is what TATCHA has to say: 

What it is: Formulated for sensitive skin, this anti-aging moisturizer is rich in Indigo extract, Colloidal Oatmeal and Sophora Japonica extract, which calm, comfort, and restore skin's natural resiliency.

Why it’s different: Our soothing blend of botanicals calms sensitive, easily irritated skin and reverses the signs of premature aging. Formulated with 3% Colloidal Oatmeal (the highest percentage available in a product of this kind on the market), skin is left comforted, supple and replenished.

Who it’s for: For all skin types, especially sensitive skin showing signs of rosacea, eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis or allergies. Non-comedogenic.

How to use: Use after cleansing or exfoliating. Can be used alone or over a serum. Perfect for use in the morning and evening on the face, neck, and décolletage.  

First, let me start off my review by saying that this is the most beautifully packaged item I have ever laid my eyes on. TATCHA always pays such great attention to detail on their products, and this one is no different. The jar feels luxurious and weighty in your hand, letting you know that you're using something incredible.

The cream itself is thick, yet velvety on the skin. It blends in and melts into my skin on contact, and never leaves behind a greasy or oily feel to my face. After I apply this cream, my face feels softer, looks moisturized, and leaves my skin more plump and youthful looking. My finer lines on my face are reduced, and the constant redness on my cheeks has almost disappeared! I don't even have to wear a powder foundation to even out my skin tone anymore, and this is due to the 3% Colloidal Oatmeal that is found in this product. 

Overall, I rate this product 5 out of 5 stars, and a must have to anyone's skincare routine! I know it will be staying in mine!

This product retails for $135.00, and can be purchased at!


Note: I received this product to try and review on my blog. I am not associated with the company, nor are they paying me to review their product. As always, my reviews and opinions are 100% my own!

Sally Hansen Special Effects for Summer!

Hey everyone! 

This summer, it's time to get cultured—with pearls, that is. Sally Hansen introduces Pearl Crush; a collection of eight new Special Effect polishes that give nails an eye-catching, shimmery finish. Inspired by the season's iridescent trend, the Pearl Crush polishes have a unique combination of pigments that interact with layers of large, faceted glitter particles. The resulting effect: a 3D crushed pearl look that plays off light, lending a lustrous, vibrant look to summer manicures. Choose a softer tone or go dark—either way; you'll want to wear these precious "pearls" everywhere you go! 

SHADES: Oy-ster It Up!: Aw, shucks—this true white with faceted glitter catches the light beautifully, She Sells: Whether on the seashore or the city streets, this pale blush hue is pretty, pink perfection, Lady Crab: No need to pinch yourself—this dreamy hot pink really is as steamy as it gets!, Rainbow Fish: Casting off icy tones, this iridescent blue is quite the catch, Shell & Tell: The secret is out: A lovely lilac like this doesn't come around every day, Mer-Mint: This splashy, soothing seafoam green is loaded with sea-inspired shimmer, Silver Scallop: Reflect on this modern take on metallics—a shape shifting silver that appears constantly in motion and Clam Digger: This lava-rock black stands out with flecks of phosphorescent-green glitter. 

Overall, I loved these polishes! They were fun the play with, and I received a ton of compliments on my nails at work! A perfect accessory to these hot summer months!

It's official: Ombré is the look of the decade. From runways to red carpets, from highlights to home decor, a gradated wash of color is perpetually on trend. Now, Sally Hansen makes it easy to create a sparkling ombré manicure with new Insta-Ombre Special Effect. 

Available in eight high-impact glitter shades, this clever and innovative ombre-in-a-bottle makes it easy for women to achieve the look in just three simple steps. First, apply one coat to clean, dry nails. Next, apply a second coat from mid-nail to the tip. Finally, apply a third coat to only the nail tip. Voila: A radiant, wash of ombre color at your fingertips. 

As the first and last word in nail color, Sally Hansen offers eight shades to match every mood: Copper Cap: Beige that grows into a warm, copper glow, Cobalt Coat: Blue, from barely-there to intense, Layer On Lilac: A cool-toned take on purple, Scarlet Spark: A true red that fades into a whisper, Gold Grade: Metallic glitter, from quiet to saturated, Fuchsia-Nista: A bright pink with the slightest hint of violet, Jade Fade: An enviable emerald hue, Grey-diant: A stunningly sparkled fade from light to black.

As you all know I love glitter anything, so of course, I loved these polishes! Perfect for a fun mani this season!

Get the Perfect Summer Lip from CARGO Cosmetics

Hey everyone! 

Achieving that perfect summer lip can be challenging for anyone! You want a fun color that is lightweight and easy to apply. And, it has to last, because who has time to reapply lipstick when they're enjoying these carefree summer days?!

Well, CARGO Cosmetics has us girls covered for summer, with their new Limited Edition Gel Lip Color. These lipsticks are available in four shades: Brooklyn, Tribeca, Soho, and Chelsea. 

I received two of these shades to try out (Brooklyn and Chelsea) and I must say that they have a weightless, gel feel to them, while still providing plenty of color and shine.

These work great in the summer, due to their lightweight texture and staying power, plus they keep your lips moisturized. 

Overall, I highly recommend checking these lipsticks out! So get 'em while they're hot, because they won't last long!
