Girl's Spa Night with Make It Classy DIY Beauty

Hello Passionista!

Have you ever just needed a at home spa night? Well, I’m about to put you on to something that will change your beauty routines and turn up your self care practices.

Make It Classy delivers plant-based ingredients and step-by-step instructions needed to craft
your own chemical-free DIY beauty creations. Think of it like Hello Fresh, except it is a beauty box. The best thing about these kits is that you learn how to make your very own clean beauty products. Most of the kits makes enough product for you to use the product more than once. You also have a recipe card to keep and remake your beauty product over and over again with the purchase of the ingredients needed.

I hosted a spa night for a couples of girlfriends to enjoy. We each picked a Make It Classy kit that we wanted to make. As we sipped on Rose and talked about our week, we made some clean beauty products to care for our skin and hair. We decided to each do a clay mask from the Loyal Leah DIY Kit to deep condition with Rhassoul clay and moisturize our face.

For our spa night we made the following beauty products.

Majestic Maya – DIY Body Scrub. Each kit makes one 8oz body scrub

Loyal Leah – DIY Clay Hair + Face Mask. Each kits makes 1 hair mask or 15+ face masks.

Herbal Ebony – DIY Herbal Hair Rinse. Each kit makes 2 bottles of hair rinse.

I’ve been in love with the Make It Classy brand since I discovered them nearly a year ago. So far, I have made about 4 different kits from the brand. I love their branding and how everything is made to create a simple yet satisfying experience for the user. My favorite kit is the Rose Water toner kit. Rose water is a beauty jewel that I always wanted to try to make myself. But, I was skeptical about using store bought roses to make a beauty product because of all the peptides put on flowers through the manufacturing and distribution process. When I discover Make It Classy and the DIY Lavender Rose Water kit, I knew I would have to try it. Just to my expectation it was simple to make once you have the right ingredients.

How it works

1. Choose your DIY beauty box based on the recipe you’d like to create.

2. Add to cart and checkout

3. You’ll receive your box in the mail along with a recipe card and ingredients to create that DIY beauty product.

Thank you Make It Classy for sponsoring this blog post. Book a party and host your next girl’s night with a at home spa twist.

Make It Classy | DIY Herbal Hair Rinse

Hello Passionista

I have experienced yet another great beauty DIY from Make It Classy DIY beauty box. Each DIY beauty box is plant- based and free of chemicals for your everyday beauty routine.

I had the pleasure of assisting the CEO & Founder of Make it Classy, Victoria (who is also a fellow blogger) during the Ultimate Women’s Expo in Atlanta, GA. During the expo, I worked at the Make It Classy booth with Victoria and a few other ambassadors. The day was filled with me talking and networking with women who are curious and passionate about natural beauty care. There was even a station for customers to make a quick clay mask sample for face and hair to take home and try. I felt truly in my elment being able to share my passion for embacing natural beauty and DIY projects.

A few weeks back I posted a video of my using the Make It Classy DIY Beauty Box for Rose Water on IGTV, click here to watch. Today, I want to share with you the Make It Classy DIY Beauty Box for Herbal Hair Rinse.

After making my herbal hair rinse, I used it to rinse the conditioner from my hair after cleansing. I used the entire bottle provided for one rinse. The DIY beauty box comes with enough ingredients to make 2 batches of the product. If you don’t use the entire bottle in one usage like I did you may store in for up to one month in the refrigerator. My scalp felt refreshed and my curls looked more defined than ever. Picture below is how my curls looked after using the hair rinse.

Tell me, what are your thoughts about herbal hair rinses for your natural curls? Have you ever used a natural herbal hair rinse?

Target Sepetember “Your New Basics” Beauty Box

Happy Saturday Passionistas!

So… I finally got my hands on the Target Beauty Box!

I have been trying to order one for at least 2 months now, but they are only while supplies last. They sell out quick. But I was able to get the September Total Hydration Beauty Box  and the September Your New Basics Beauty Box.

The Target Beauty Box is not a subscription service. It’s a online only, monthly beauty box for only $7. The box is packed with about 5-8 trial size items and $3 off coupon for beauty purchases of $15 or more. Honestly, this is a great deal. They’ll make perfect gifts for your friends and family members during the holidays without breaking the bank.

If you are a RED card member at Target you get the 5% off for using your card and shipping is free. So for only $14.24, let me show you what I got this month….

The September – Your New Basics Beauty Box came with

img_8630Acure Ultra-Hydrating Shampoo & Conditioner with argan extract and argan oil. The shampoo and conditioner formula is mild and good for sensitive skin. It’s also sulfate-free.

I’ve seen this product on shelf in many stores, but never purchased or used it. Now that I have these trial sizes I will definitely try it out, when I go back to wearing my natural curls for winter.

img_8633

Simple Micellar Water with no harsh chemical and artificial perfume or dyes. I am very big on make up wipes to take off my makeup, just because it’s quick and simple. Lately I have been using micellar water or gel to clean my face before applying make-up. You know just to make sure my face is really clean before I spread make-up all over it. I currently have the Garnier Micellar Water, but I’ve tried this product and love them both. This trial size bottle is great for travel, so I don’t have to carry around the big bottle in my suitcase or overnight bag. The box also included 2 dual-sided up & up Premium Cotton Rounds.

I thought that was a clever idea. Typical me, after I opened the box and took my blog pictures- I used the micellar water and cotton rounds right away. I used wanted to see how it felt.

img_8636Covergirl Tease Mascara for full natural lashes. I have seen the commerical for this new Total Tease product but wasn’t inspired to go purchase it. Honestly, I hardly ever buy mascara because I never run out. I have so many beauty subscriptions and mascara is so popular that I also have one. I don’t have a favorite brand or type or anything like that. But since a FULL size bottle of the Total Tease was in the box, I will use it.

 

Side Note: Every month I get so many eye liners, brow pins and mascara that I would never be able to use them all. So maybe I pick a few that I haven’t opened and do a little giveaway. Stay Tuned!  <Okay Back to The Review>

Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb with vitamin C and E to help promote healthy skin.

Honestly, I’ve never come across this product before, but who doesn’t love a good moisturizer. I can’t stand the feeling of a dirty face. So I keep facial wipes in my purse to wipe my face throughout the day if I need to. You know after you cleanse your face it can feel dry so you need to hydrate it. This little jar is the perfect size. I carry it in my purse for a little refresh throughout the day.

img_8631Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion with almond oil.

If you’ve been following Passion Locked for a while, I featured this product in one of my favorites blogs a few posts back. But my thoughts have changed since. I no longer like this product. I don’t know if they change the formula or ingredients, but it doesn’t make my skin feel nice and soft or hydrated after showering – and I still have to put on lotion afterwards. I’ll be adding this product to my giveaway box.

img_8634

Sensodyne ProNamel Strong & Bright Toothpaste for sensitive teeth and cavity prevention.

I use Crest toothpaste, because growing up that’s what my parents bought for the house. So when I moved out on my own and started purchasing toothpaste for myself, I went with what I knew. But I’m open to trying new things.

Stay Tuned for Part 2 of this review for a look at other box I got.

If you think I should do a beauty box giveaway, comment and let me know.

Hello Passionistas!

I recently found out Walmart offered a seasonal beauty box. And it’s only $5.00… so you know I had to sign up. I am a product junkie!!!! I love trying different brands and trendy beauty items.  I shop at Target and Kroger over Walmart, but a beauty box just may win me back over as a customer. Although! I hear Target has a beauty box as well, but its not a subscription service, you have to buy it online each month. So I’m not interested!

 

But back to what we are hear for…. The Spring WalMart Beauty Box!

This month box is filled with …

img_6786

Schwarzkopf Gliss Hair Repair with Liquid Keratin Ultra Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner. I have never used this product before, honestly I’m not sure if its for black girl hair. But I’ll willing to try it since wash day is coming up. I mean if I don’t like it I can just rewash my hair. The packaging says it for dry to stressed hair, my hair is not stressed but can be a little dry at times. So I’m going to give it a shot.

I’ve never tried any of the Biores products before, but this seasons box has the Biore’ Baking Soda Acne Scrub in it. So I think I am going to try it. I love the fact that it has baking soda in it. I don’t have acne issues but I think it will be cool to try whenever I fill a pimple coming on.

I have used the Dove advanced care cool essentials deodorant before. I liked it. I don’t particularly like Dove body wash but I do buy the deodorant from time to time. I’m not loyal to a particular brand or scent deodorant, as long as it gets the job done, I’m cool.

I’ve been wanting to try the Colgate Radiant White, but I can never catch it on sale. So I will be used every bit of the sample.

I’m not big on face oils because I sweat a lot, I have tried one before. I was not in love with it so I never repurchased it. But I am open to trying the Coconut Oil Luminous Hydration Facial Oil. I think it would be best for before putting on my make-up or after taking off my make-up and cleansing my face.

Lastly, I am looking forward to trying the John Frieda Frizz Ease Daily Nourishment Moisturizing Conditioner. Again I’m not sure if this brand is for black girl hair but if it helps with frizz, I’m willing to try. So the next time I straighten my hair, I’m going to try this product.
