Bluma Project – Capri Bracelets – Set of 2 – Retail Value $44

I really like the colors of these bracelets!  Navy is one of my favorite colors, and I especially like it with gold!

Unfortunately, these bracelets are a little more boho than I am.  These will make a great gift.  I just need to figure out who that gift would be for!

Kocostar – Foot Therapy – Retail Value $10

I was very intrigued when I saw this product in the box!

This is what the treatment looks like when you take it out of the package.

When it’s cut down the middle, it becomes two, little booties to put on your feet.

Here are my feet in the little booties! 🙂

The instructions say to leave it on your feet for 1.5 hours, so that’s what I did!  I walked around the house a little while wearing them.  They were rather squishy and funny feeling!

I didn’t pay much attention to how my feet felt before the treatment (whoopsie!), but I do believe they are a little softer now.

One thing I didn’t like about this product was that it stripped my toenail polish of its vibrant blue color.  I wasn’t expecting that!

SPONGELLE – Spongology Body Buffer – Retail Value $20

I’ve received a SPONGELLE product in one of my previous boxes, so I was very excited to see another one in this month’s box!

This buffer smells FANTASTIC and works really well!  When my last Spongology sponge ran out of body wash, I kept the sponge and continued to use it.  I’ll be doing the same when this buffer runs out of soap!

GAIAM – Foldable Yoga Mat – Retail Value $24.98

I haven’t done yoga in a long time, but I do enjoy it.  Maybe I’ll start up again soon!

Unfortunately, I already have two yoga mats.  At least this one is foldable and doesn’t take up much space!

Happy Spritz – Breathe Deeply – Retail Value $25

I absolutely love the way this spray smells!  The peppermint and eucalyptus are fantastic!

I’ve sprayed it on my face several times now, and it’s quite nice.  It dries quickly and doesn’t leave you oily or with any residue.  That’s a major plus!

I think this is going to be great the next time I have a cold or a stuffy nose!

Jimmybar! – Peanut Butter Clutter Jimmybar! Clean Snack Bar – Retail Value $2.49

I was pleasantly surprised by the texture and flavor of this bar.  I was expecting something flavorless and chalky.  It was actually quite moist and had a pretty good flavor!

Hint Kick – Black Raspberry Infused Water – Retail Value $1.69

I’ve never had one of these waters before, so I was quite intrigued by it.

The flavor was okay, but I think it would be much better if they added a little sugar!

Revlon – Volume + Length Magnified Mascara – Retail Value $8.99

This mascara couldn’t have come at a better time!  I’m almost out of my current tube!

I haven’t noticed any difference in the length or volume of my lashes, but I do like that the formula isn’t too wet.  I’ll definitely continue to use it for a while!

The May box also included a $10 gift card for Half Hitch Goods, but I forgot to take a photo of it. I looked on their website and they have some nice things, but I don’t think I’ll be using my $10.

IMG_0227

I’ll end up using almost (or have already used) all of these products, so I’d say the May box was a win!

The total retail value for this box (not including the gift card) is $137.15!  That’s pretty good!

Love Your Bare Face – Detoxifying Cleansing Stick

This cleansing stick smells just like the cleansing oil I received last week.  It’s very citrus-y and refreshing!

I am worried that this soap may be causing my forehead to break out, which upsets me quite a bit!  I’ve only been using it for a few days now, so I can’t definitively say if it’s this cleanser, the sponge, or something completely different!

IMG_9595

 

Konjac Sponge – Kaolin Clay

I absolutely LOVE the way this sponge feels on my face!  I received the body konjac sponge several months ago, and loved it too!

As I mentioned above, this sponge could possibly be causing my breakouts.  If I determine that it is the cause, I will most likely end up just using the sponge on my body, since it’s way less sensitive!

IMG_9603

Kimball – Classic with a Twist – High-Voltage Watermelon Vivid Sheer

This polish looks quite red in the bottle, but it actually is the vivid watermelon color that Julep describes it to be!

I have it painted on my toenails right now and it’s super fun and summery!

Brigitte – Classic with a Twist – Bright White Crème

I know this polish looks peachy in the photo (I think it’s reflecting the color of the tissue paper), but it’s definitely white!

I used Brigitte under Kimball to really make the watermelon pop!

Here are April’s quote and coupon!

As always, the coupon is good for two uses until the end of the month!

Farmer’s Market Fun!

Hi everyone!

My best friend, Kylie, and I went to the local farmer’s market for the first time yesterday! We’ve been talking about going for the longest time and yesterday we finally got the chance!

There we’re lots of booths with fresh produce and baked goods, as well as several with handmade soaps and jewelry.

I’ve recently fallen in love with handmade bath products, so I couldn’t resist looking at a few of the booths that featured them!

I spent a several minutes perusing the bath products made by Herbs & Oils Bath.

ImageHerbs & Oils Bath had so many products to choose from, but I limited myself to only buying two bars of soap.

ImageI bought a Raspberry and White Tea bar and a Blackberry Vanilla bar.  They both smell delicious, and I can’t wait to give them a try!  I’m hoping to finish the bar of soap currently in my shower in the next few days so I can start using one of my fun new ones!

ImageThe Herbs & Oils Bath booth had some HUGE bath bombs that Kylie was really interested in!  She just bought some from Nourish, so she didn’t buy any this time.  I have a feeling that she’ll be buying some from Herbs & Oils Bath soon though!

I can’t wait to go back to the farmer’s market next week to see what else Herbs & Oils Bath has to offer!
