Lilian Fache Spa-X Advanced Waterproof Facial and Body Cleansing Kit Review

Lilian Fache Spa-X Advanced Waterproof Facial and Body Cleansing Kit retails for $29.95 on Amazon Prime. Their brush replacement set retails for $14.97 on Amazon Prime.  Lilian Fache Spa-X Advanced Waterproof Facial and Body Cleansing Kit comes with the body and face brushes that take four AA batteries. You also receive a small facial brush attachment, a body brush attachment, facial sponge, and the pumice stone attachment. The also include their facial scrub. 

Now, I wasn’t expecting it to compete to the Clarisonic. The Clarisonic is like a thoroughbred and the Lilian Fache Spa-X Advanced Waterproof Facial and Body Cleansing Kit is like a mule.

I have used it multiple times now. To be completely honest, it has done nothing for my skin. I struggle with flaky, dry skin in the winter, and I was hoping that this would be a more gentle solution for my dry skin. However, my skin was still left flaky and gross. I actually get more results with konjac sponge. The one good thing about this brush is that it’s so gentle that it doesn’t give any negative results to my severely sensitive skin.

Now, if you are using this brush for a simple clean will work wonderfully. However, if you are looking to give your skin a deep clean this isn’t going to do the job. It definitely won’t give you great exfoliation.

Overall, I found the Lilian Fache Spa-X Advanced Waterproof Facial and Body Cleansing Kit great for a simple, clean on your face. I, seriously, don’t think it will give you as great as a result as the Clarisonic or Foreo Luna. However, that is a huge price difference between them. If you are wondering if I would repurchase it, absolutely not. For me, the results it gives is not worth the money at all.

JAS Naturals Beauty Blender

 

20160307_131205JAS Naturals Beauty Blender retails for $10.95 on Amazon Prime. You get one that is the shape of the BeautyBlender that everyone raves about. (Including myself.) You also receive another one that is an hourglass shape. The blenders are latex-free, odor-free, non-allergenic, and eco-friendly. You can use this sponge wet or dry. They say dry gives you more coverage. I normally use it dry just to fix makeup mistakes.

Does it compare to BeautyBlender? Oh, fuck no. Nowhere close! When you get the JAS Naturals Sponge wet, it takes so much work to get the excess water out. Whilst the BeautyBlender is beyond easy to get the excess water out. On cleaning, BeautyBlender wins again! It cleans a million times easier than the JAS Naturals Beauty Blender. I found that it was nearly impossible for me to get all the foundation and other products I used with the JAS Naturals Sponge out. On blending, the BeautyBlender wins again! The BeautyBlender leaves my skin looking smooth and flawless, whilst the JAS Naturals Beauty Blender made my dry patches even more prominent. There is only one thing that I enjoyed more on the JAS Naturals Beauty Sponge than the BeautyBlender. That is how big the sponge is! It takes like half the time to apply foundation to my face with it!

If you are looking for a good dupe, the best I have tried and heard of is the Real Techniques Sponge. It’s the most amazing dupe that I have ever tried! Actually, it’s the only other sponge that I love! It’s not the perfect dupe for the BeautyBlender, but it’s closest you are going to get!

Overall, I, personally, I wouldn’t spend full price on it. I would rather purchase the Real Techniques Sponge if I was looking for a more financially friendly sponge. There is only one thing that I could say that’s positive about this sponge. Therefore, I can clearly not recommend this sponge. However, it is perfect for my toddler. Hopefully, she won’t destroy my BeautyBlenders now!

Dog Shedding Tool Sets by Pet Magasin Review

Oh, last summer. The year that my toddler ran off with our grooming brushes outside, and my husband managed to run them over with the mower. Goodbye, all you brushes. Except the furminator. After being sick of using one of my hair brushes to brush our dogs, I decided we must buy new brushes. Especially with two beautiful borzoi. One of my sweet girls loves to lay in the twigs and leaves. Her hair has to be brushed out daily or it becomes a big, hot, matted mess. (I honestly never let her get matted. Her hair is just amazingly soft and tangles easily.) The other is still a puppy, therefore, her hair is only long on her back legs and tail. Obviously, grooming her is beyond easy and fast.

The Dog Shedding Tool Set by Magasin comes with three tools in a sturdy material bag. The bag is grey with their logo. You receive a dematting rake, dog hair brush, and undercoat rake. All these only retail for $9.97 on Amazon Prime, which is a hell of a deal! The quality of each of them is so amazing and superior to the ones that you get at your local store, unless it’s a specialty pet store. Each brush has an amazing non-slip grip surface that makes it comfortable to hold. The double sided dog brush works wonderfully. Well, on one side, it is amazing! The other sides with the black bristles really does shit for my dogs’ coats. I am also sure the dematting brush would work great. However, my dog only had a couple of small tangles, and it clearly does not work for those small tangles. Lastly, the undercoat rake works wonderful. It removed a fair amount of hair. However, it is nothing like the furminator, if that’s what you are longing for.

Overall, I am beyond impressed with these grooming brushes by Magasin. Each one was high quality and stylish. I only have one slight disappointment with this set. I wish that included nail clippers, as well! That way the whole Grooming Set by Magasin would be absolute perfection!

First Botany Anti-Fungal Tea Tree Body and Foot Scrub

Oh, the winter, you are such a bitch to my skin. My skin go from smooth and fresh to dry and flaky whenever you’re around. My feet become gross looking and dry. I assure you no one likes that, winter.

That’s why I was desperate to find a solution for my dry skin, especially my feet. I recently was given opportunity to review First Botany Cosmeceuticals  Anti-Fungal Tea Tree Oil Body and Foot Scrub. I had to  jump on.
image

First Botany Cosmeceuticals Anti-Fungal Tea Tree Oil Body and Foot Scrub retails for $14.50 on Amazon Prime. First Botany Cosmeceuticals claims that their Anti-Fungal Tea Tree Oil Foot and Body Scrub is great for rashes, corns, calluses, soothing insect bites, warts, and acne.  From reading their ingredients, I can see how their claims are accurate.
image

The ingredients include tea tree essential oil, 100% pure dead sea salt  epsom salt, sodium bicarbonate, methylsulfonylmethane, jojoba oil, Chamomile essential oil, rosemary essential oil, eucalyptus essential oil, spearmint essential oil, and peppermint essential oil.

Another amazing thing about First Botany Cosmeceuticals is that they’re cruelty free! I don’t know about you, but I hate purchasing products that have tested on animals!
image

Directions are simple. You just have to massage it on wet skin, and rinse off with warm water

I’m sure you are wondering if it works. From the first time I used it, I found that it made my feet smoother. I do honestly believe that you have to use it consistently to get full results.

The smell of the scrub reminds me of margaritas.  One of the few alcohol drinks, I somehow cannot enjoy. However, the smell doesn’t bug me. It brings back sweet memories of eating Mexican cuisine with my family and in laws.

Overall, I think it is definitely worth the money. The price is so reasonable with the high quality and the amount of product you get. I love how wonderful it works with consistent use.

Also, if you can tell in my picture, my child took my scrub to the bottom of the the tub whilst it was open.

Freedom Planner Review

Ever since I had my daughter, I have been very disorganised. To the point that I never remember when my appointments are until the day before. You know when they send those reminder texts/calls.

In my attempt to get organised, I knew I needed a planner. For some reason, I am not capable of using digital planners and getting the same results as when I write everything down. There was an opportunity to review the Freedom Planner for a discount rate for my honest review. It fit my needs perfectly, therefore, I had to do it! Right? 🙂

20160306_182011

Now, what I love about this planner is that it provides everything I need and more! Plus, it has a sleek design! With the Freedom Planner, you get a detailed yearly planner. The even provide notes on how to get organised! As well as a dream board, and other things to get you in the direction that you want to go in life.

On design, it’s black with their symbol on the front! It’s also slim and perfect size to fit in your bag! They provide a beautiful blue ribbon that is attached to the planner to mark your place. The only con about this design is that the material on the outside does take show fingerprints easily. Other than that, this planner by Freedom Planner is perfect.

Overall, I can’t find a single thing I hate about this planner. I believe the Freedom Planner is perfection. It not only keeps me organised, but I love the motivation aspects that the Freedom Planner provides. For example, it has areas for goals, inspirational quotes, and other wonderful features that will keep you motivated and organised. Even though, the planner does retail at $35.97 on Amazon Prime, I will definitely be repurchasing it for 2017. To me, I found the planner is worth every penny!

Premium Patented High Quality Car Trash Bag/Storage Bag

Let’s face it with a child, it’s beyond easy for your car to become messy. I love car storage. I have a storage system on the passenger side for all those things that you may or may not need in your car with a child. I also have a tote for all our car toys right by my sweet girl’s carseat. The only thing I lacked was a trash can.
image

I recently got to review the Premium Patented High Quality Car Trash Can/ Storage Bag sold by Home Health Check for a discount for my honest review. I did find this bag great quality. The fabric and stitching are durable and high quality.
image

One of my favourite things about this bag is that it connects to the headrest of your seat. This makes it easy for me to even move it to the far back of the suv to make passengers in the backseat more comfortable. I also love how you can remove the inside pouch to easily wash it!
image

You also have two bottle holders. I personally, don’t like the idea of putting my drinks near my trash. However, if you are using this as a storage bag. I don’t see a problem with it.

Another thing it has is a small zip pouch that is great for putting small things that you may need. Which I also find disgusting if you are using it for a trash bag!

Lastly, it has this thing for putting kleenex in it. However, it seems more like a hassle then it’s worth.

My verdict is: Overall, I like it. However, I think it needs some improvement or maybe I am just grossed out easily. 🙂 I think , though, that nearly $17 dollars on amazon prime is kinda high for this bag. There are cheaper and different alternatives that you could use.

Baltic Wonder’s Baltic Amber Necklace Review

image

I have a teething toddler, like I am sure many mothers and fathers do. Let me tell you something, I am sure all you know those canine teeth are little bitches. Those cute, little teeth coming in put our children in misery. Let’s not to mention the lack of sleep they cause for both the child and the parent.

This is my third amber necklace for my toddler. The first one, my sweet mother in law thought we were asking for one for Christmas for me, but we were asking for our little. The other one, I bought in her size, but it had the pull apart with pressure feature. Both of these were wonderful and high quality. Both were purchased at Itsy Bitsy Bums, which is one of my favourite stores to go to as a mother. When I got the opportunity to review this Amber Necklace by Baltic Wonder for a discount for my honest and unbiased review, I had to jump on it.
image

Now with Baltic Wonder, you get a high quality amber necklace that 32-33 cm. long. It also comes in a stylish brown b It also comes with a certificate of authenticity. It also retails for $16.99 on Amazon Prime.
image

One of my favourite things about this necklace is the fit. My toddler is almost two years old, and this necklace fits her perfectly! I don’t have to worry about her pulling it off and making it a toy. Especially, when she is running around playing with it, and you have no idea where it ends up!

My toddler loves wearing this necklace. In fact, she cries if you try to take it off. I would definitely say it’s absolutely comfortable for her! It also is fabulously stylish with a purpose.

Now, I am sure you are wondering if it actually works. To be honest, I was absolutely doubtful that amber necklaces work! I don’t know if it a pseudocertainty effect or it actually works, but I know this my toddler can actually fall asleep and stay asleep through the night. We even go through less Hyland Teething Tablets and Punkin Butt.(Which by the way are wonderful teething solutions.)
