Recently I applied for the opportunity to test out some popular SK-II skincare items. I was lucky enough to be chosen for the voxbox from Influenster, which included a trial size of the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence and one Facial Treatment mask.
I mentioned a few weeks back how I started incorporating Boscia’s Beauty Oil into my skincare routine. I have been very pleased with the results, however as far as anti-aging benefits go, it’s very hard to tell if something is making a difference or not. To me, if you take care of your skin, a lot of these products are basically the same (in my opinion.) It’s more about finding what works for you rather than going out and buying the most expensive skincare you can find, thinking it will perform miracles.
If you didn’t notice by now, I am completely obsessed with Target Beauty Boxes. They are always affordable and jam packed with a great mix of useable, trendy, and new finds. So I thought, why not start my new YouTube channel off right, with none other than the Target Box?! If you’d like to watch the unboxing, I included the video below my review!

This week I want to give a shout out to a product I can’t believe I’ve lived so long without. The Boscia Beauty Oil has been my dry skins saving grace this winter. Ok so I know that this isn’t exactly pink, but the packaging is pink and the bottle is red which is close enough!
If you happened to notice a couple weeks back in my Wednesday series post, I included a little sneak peak of an item I received in Target’s March box. I am completely hooked on Target Beauty Boxes not only for the great quality of usable products, but also for the great value in those products. The Target Beauty Box comes out *usually* at the end of the month and goes on sale the first day or so of the new month. I say usually because it’s not always the same, plus it’s not a subscription service.
I was almost crying (ok not really… but I could have,) when the end of March was here and there were no previews for a new box. I was like “how can you do this to me Target??!!” Fists in air and all. Then this glorious morning I woke up to see they had updated their products which meant… Beauty Box on the way!! So check out their site (should be a direct link to the beauty box page, if not just type in beauty box in the search field) and see if anything interests you. Also stay tuned… I will announce on my Twitter when they go live! With that said it will probably be very early in the morning and they usually sell out by early afternoon.
Target Beauty Box for March
Although it was smaller than the last Target box, it was by no means shabby. Six out of the eight samples will be, and have been, used. March’s Beauty Box was only $5. Five dollars! You can not beat that. Considering how most beauty subscription boxes are $10 and up. Not to mention they usually include a $3 off coupon for future beauty purchases.
It’s almost time for Spring! So I thought, why not bring up the Walmart Beauty Box? What does one have to do with the other? Well Walmart has their own beauty box subscription that comes out once every season. Meaning, it’s almost time for the Spring box! If you have $5 to spend every three months (four times a year) and love getting beauty samples to try, then keep reading!
About a month ago I got sent this amazing skincare system from Murad to test out. It is their Rapid Lightening Regimen which promotes healthy skin by treating uneven skin tones.
Murad Rapid Lightening Regimen
I was very excited to open the box and find full sized samples of the whole three step regimen plus two additional sample sizes of other products in the line. That really helped me get a feel for their whole beauty process and see results. I must admit though, I was a bit nervous trying this out because my skin is very sensitive and I didn’t think a lightening regimen would apply to me. Needless to say I was wrong and I am pleasantly surprised with the results!
It’s that time of the month again! No not the unwanted kind, but the wonderful time when the Target Beauty Box goes on sale. And it’s always *much wanted* so to speak, that it sells out very quickly. The site is up and ready for purchase (which is only $5!) and I’ve included a handy link that directs you right to Target’s website!

It seems, like the last time, you will get a randomly chosen color of nail polish and just one of the offered face masks. You can always check out my last Target box review here!
What do you think? Will you be picking one up before they sell out?
Target Beauty Box
If you haven’t gotten this Target beauty box yet, oh well too bad! Just kidding… but actually it is too late because they sell out in just a few hours! With that said I had posted right when it became live and ordered it. I will definitely try to keep everyone in the loop on when they are in pre-sale and sale mode. I’m a night owl so expect posts at 4am about it!
Onto February’s box. Insert googly love eyed emoji here. Continue reading
If you are anything like me, this time of year wreaks havoc upon my (somewhat aging) hands. Not only is the weather very drying, but washing your hands multiple times a day zaps the moisture right out. I always have a hard time finding a hand lotion I really like, for many reasons… First off, smell. If it smells horrendous I simply can’t deal. Second, consistency. If its too watery I feel like it does nothing. Lastly, the aftermath. If it leaves my hands sticky or sweaty-ish, it’s a big no go from me. Let me also say that I mostly use lotions on the backs of my hands. Weird, maybe. But if you’re on your phone or computer a lot it certainly bypasses the “greasy” fingerprint issues.
With that said, here are some of my current favorites in the hand cream department.
