♥ October Ipsy Bag ♥

heyy girls,

last week I received my October Ipsy bag and I thought why not show you what I got in this month Ipsy bag ;) Here is what I got...

The first thing that I got is this pack of 10 facial wipes from La Fresh. It says that it is oil-free, biodegradable and compostable wet wipes made of a natural formula. I think this is more of a refreshing type of product more than a makeup remover. I haven't tried it yet but I am very excited to see if this is great or not.

Next, I got something that I was very excited about; I got a Zoya nailpolish! I was SO happy because I've never tried this brand before. The color is very pretty too. I think it is called Giovanna but I'm not sure. It is a pretty emerald green which is perfect for this season. I've tried it on two nails as an accent color and so far I like the consistency and the pigmentation.

♥ September favorites ♥

Heyy girls,

this month has gone by very quickly and it is (again) that time of the month where I present to you the products that I've been loving through the entire month of September.

To be honest with you, I don't have new things that I've been loving, only things that you've seen in the past. But I thought I'd showed you anyway since I personally love to know what others have been loving. For me, if a product came up many times through the monthly favorites, it means that it is THAT good of a product. So here are my favorites for this past month...
 The first thing that I've been loving doing this month is quick makeup look. This month I have been crazy busy with school and simple makeup has been my go-to look. For an example I've been concealing my under eye circles from my lack of sleep with my Garnier Roll-On concealer in light to medium. Next I used my Naked Basics (almost everyday) since I had every color that I needed to do a simple eye makeup look and to fill in my brows. So I've basically been wearing W.O.S on my lid, Naked 2 in the crease, Faint on the outer corner when I felt fancy and Naked 2 to fill in my brows. Mascara. Lip balm. Of course. Maybe some powder when I felt like I needed it. That's it. 
My next favorite has been my First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream (I did a review here). As you know the weather is changing, leaves are coming down from the trees, the air is getting colder, everyone is sick already and as a matter of fact, your skin is getting dryer and dryer and dryer. Well, I discovered a nice face moisturizer from the brand First Aid Beauty and if you want to know what I think about it I suggest you to read my review ;)

☆ Review: First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream ☆

Heyy girls,

I've decided that I want to do things a little bit different on my blog from now on. First, I am not going to publish post on Tuesday and Friday anymore because I am too busy with school and stuff, I will be posting at least once a week on a random day each week. Also, I will be doing more reviews and first impressions, I'll also try my best to do more fashion post like OOTD ;)

I also wanted to quickly mention that my first blog anniversary is coming soon. It has been almost a year now since I've started my blog and I want to thank everyone that has been subscribed to me or left me nice comments. This is why I am going to do a giveaway soon and it will be international, so wherever you live you'll be able to participate :)

Now let's move on to the review...

I bought the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream a couple of weeks ago at Sephora and I've been using it since then.

I have sensitive skin and right now it has been more on the dryer side. This is why I was looking for a new moisturizer, plus I ran out of my Clinique dramatically different gel (which was too much of a light moisturizer for this time of year).

First, I'll talk about the packaging. I got the smaller size that they offer. It comes in a regular tube as you can see from the pictures below... It's nothing fancy I like it. The packaging is different though for the bigger sizes.


I like the consistency of the Ultra Repair Cream. It has a thick and rich consistency. It is also very moisturizing without being greasy or too heavy on the skin. It doesn't leave you with a shiny finish since the product get absorbed into your skin somewhat quickly.
