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.
This Wednesday I’m going to chat about my favorite pink packaged beauty subscription… Ipsy! It’s near the end of the month and May Glam Bags will be on their way shortly. If you’re unfamiliar with Ipsy you can read more about this beauty subscription in my last review here.
April’s theme was Dreamers, and funny enough I didn’t get a picture of the fun pink bubble wrapping. As always, your beauty goods come with a bonus “glam” bag, which this month was a tie-dye motif. Not my favorite, but still useful to have. This is going to look like a very blue Pink post… but it’s the thought that counts right?!
It’s Wednesday already? How time flies! Since it’s the first Wednesday of the month I’m going to share my tiny pig calendar with you all for the month of April. If you’re new to my Wednesday series here’s a quick recap… I wanted to draw inspiration from the Mean Girls quote “on Wednesdays we wear pink,” and thought it would be fun to do a post specifically centered around one of my favorite colors, pink! Henceforth this series was born, featuring anything from beauty to fashion to any other pink related randomness. If you’d like to join in feel free to let me know and I’ll link your post in mine 🙂
Time to relax!
Yes I’m taking life lessons from a very small pig. We all should pencil in some relaxation time into our calendars. Whether that time is spent reading a book, playing with your makeup, or catching up on your favorite show, you simply must make time for it! That may sound like I’m promoting laziness but really I’m encouraging mental health time. It is important for your mind to just unwind everyday, especially when so much is being thrown at you. So don’t feel guilty or lazy! Take some time for yourself and just relax!
Hope you enjoyed tiny pig of the month! You can read more about the calendar in my last post and how it supports the Susan G. Komen foundation!
What do you do to relax?
Just as a heads-up…I will be away the rest of the week so I probably won’t post until next week. I have a very informative review of Tarte’s new Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation all planned out for you beauties! Stay tuned XOXO
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 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!

Want a quick glance at the products?
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?
