Part 2 Target Beauty Box

Good Day Passionistas!

I am back to share with you my second Target Beauty Box! If you didn’t see the first review I did last week, please click here to read that post.

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 go order this box now is $5 instead of $7… Hurry go order one.

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 – Total Hydration Beauty Box came with

img_8642We all know, I love a gooood sheet mask. This Panda Calming Facials Sheet Mask stood no chance when I opened this box.


I love leave in conditioners. I have been using the Curls brand for a while now. I love the unique smell and feel of all their products. I’ve been using this Blueberry Leave In Conditioner on the ends of my curly hair.


I mean … We all know that Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Moisturizing Body Lotion hits the spot for all you dry skin areas. I have this little trial size bottle at my desk. You’d be surprised how many times I look down at my feet throughout the day and see that they are yet again ashy.


St. Ives Invigorating Apricot Scrub was the first facial care product I used on my face as a teenager. I didn’t have bad skin or acne problems. So I did not need a super intense product. Just something simple to scrub off any dead skin, exfoliate, and clean the surface. Even now I don’t use any harsh facial products and this product is still in my skin care routine.


The next time I wash my hair I will definitely be using this, Curls Unleashed Curl Defining Creme.


It’s getting cold out so my lips most definitely need this Chapstick Hydration in Blood Orange. I HATE chapped and dry lips.


I use Shea Moisture products ALL the time. I actually have the SheaMoisture Argan Oil & Argan Milk Shampoo and Blowout Creme in the full size already so a little extra will always help.


Don’t forget… If you think I should do a beauty box giveaway, comment and let me know. I saw one comment from my last post.I have tons of products and samples I could put together a Passion Box to giveaway. 


Don’t forget to check out Sol Theory , a monthly sunglass subscription. Use promo code PASSIONLOCKED for 20% off your 1st box.

Good Vibes ONLY- Ipsy Bag

img_8398Good Day Passionista!

First off, let me tell you how much I have been enjoying my August Ipsy makeup bag. I almost forget to write a blog and show y’all my goodies for this month.

This month I was graced with this lovely “Good Vibes Only” make up bag. It is sooooo cute. I don’t know what next month bag looks like yet- but it might be hard for me to separate from this little cutie.

Any who… on to the good stuff inside the bag


Y’all should know how much I enjoy sheet mask by now… LOL




I finally got some mask sheets in my bag this month. These mask are from Leaders Insoultion. So far I have used the Pore Gone for Good- Pore Refining sheet mask. I really liked the product. I was easy to unfold and it fit my face just right. I have used some sheet mask recently that have been just too wet and ended up being messy- liquid running down my face and all. I have even come across some that were too small or to big for my face, which was annoying. But this one was just right.


I am in love with this cute mini Make Up Forever excessive Lash mascara. I have honestly used this everyday since I got it. I think I like the size of it best of all. It fits in my makeup bag perfectly. This has been my first time using a mascara by Make Up Forever, and I like it. I haven’t cried lately- so I don’t know how it will hold up during one of my secret cry sessions (LOL) But it has been my best “pocketbook” friend so far.


It seems like every month I get a eye pencil or liquid liner. That’s cool and all… but I have not mastered the eye lining technique. These days I don’t have hours to stand in the mirror and try over and over again. So I honestly have not used this product (and don’t plan on it). I don’t know why I keep getting eye pencils and liners every month. I think I need to go on the website and look at my preferences and change them. No worries tho- I will be sure to pass this along to someone who I know will use it.


This is my second time getting a make-up brush and I’m not mad about it. The last brush I got was a contouring brush, I believe. Again, I don’t have time for all that. So I have been using it for my creamy foundation or concealer, before putting on powder foundation. This Crown Foundation brush feels really good and I will use it for my more detailed make up sessions when I’m highlighting and baking my face.


My last item was this Willkommen eyeshadow. I like natural colors so I will be using this in the winter. I haven’t used it yet because I am still stuff on the City of Color Cosmetic shimmery shadow I got last month.  I used to be into eye palettes alot, but now I need more convenient make up. So these individual shadows are dope.

Miss Spa

Good Day Passionista!

So you know I love a good sheet mask.

I have been using them more often than none now.

Sheet Mask are less expensive, less mess, and effective.


Every few days, I use a sheet mask in the morning while in the shower and getting ready to start my day. Most packages state that you should leave the sheet mask on your face for at least of 20 minutes. But I like to leave it on my face a little longer. I mean I use makeup and lotions that sit on my face all day so I can clean it a little longer.

Check out these 6 Miss Spa Sheet Mask that I picked up at Target for $2.99 each:


Miss Spa Exfoliate sheet mask

Miss Spa Clear blemish patches

Miss Spa Brighten sheet mask

Miss Spa Hydrate sheet mask

Miss Spa Oxygenating sheet mask

Miss Spa 24K Gold radiance mask


These products can be found at Target or https://miss-spa.com

Coffee Obsessed.

Hello Passionista!


Body scrubs are my favorite thing about my skin care routine. I use body scrubs on a weekly basis to make sure my skin stays soft and silky. Because I love products so much, I’m not limited to one specific brand or type.

Lately, I have been interested in this new trend of Coffee Body Scrubs. These are my top three:


Coffee Body Scrub from World Market, priced at $9.99


This product is meant for invigorating, exfoliating and smoothing. The product is a dry scrub, which could be harmful to sensitive skin if rubbed to hard. The scent of the coffee and mint scrub is not the best refreshing scent I would like, but it’s fresh. https://www.worldmarket.com/product/coffee-and-mint-body-scrub.do?sortby=ourPicks&from=Search




Energizing Coffee Body Scrub by ULTABeauty, priced at $18.50


This product is made with vitamin E, Sweet Almond oil and Coconut oil. Unlike the Coffee and Mint Body Scrub this scrub is not dry, it’s formulated with oils. This scrub is caffeined to energize the skin, infused with natural oils to soothe and nourish the skin, and the vitamin E fights off free radicals. The scent smiles more like the fresh coffee beans.



Cup O’Coffee Face and Body Mask from LUSH, priced at $11.95


This product is to kick-start your day with a stimulating blend of fresh ground coffee, kaolin and agave syrup. This product is creamy and calming. I love that these products are freshly hand made by actual people. This product is creamy and thick, unlike the others.



I recommend all three of these items products to you. It’s interesting that they all do the same thing, in three different unique forms. Please see the links above but further details of each item.



Summer Wal-Mart Beauty Box

Hello Passionistas!

First off, summer is here and you are force to be reckoned with.

About a week ago, I received my Summer Beauty box from Wal-Mart. This seasons box is full of all types of stuff I love.





My favorite product in this summer’s box is the Simple Sensitive Skin Cleansing Wipes. I have purchased this item before and used them many times. I love them. I  was excited to see them in my box. With it being summer time, it’s good to have a on the go pack to put in my purse for a little on the go refresh.





This next product, EcoTools Mask Removers Sponges is new to me. I’ve never seen these before, but I’m excited it use them. The packaging says, “designed to quickly wipe away facial masks”. I didn’t even know this was on the market. I use my Bath and Body works and Lush body mask at least once a week. So, I think it will be great to use when doing my in shower body mask.






The Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion is a product that I use everyday. But this travel size bottle is going straight into my purse. It’s going to be great for those on the go moments.








The one product from the box that I liked the least is Wally’s Organic Body Oil. The packaging says it, “reduce appearance of: scars, stretch marks, and dry skin”. It’s such a small sample that I don’t know if it’s effective. I will use the sample but I probably won’t ever purchase this item.  



I was surprised to see the Got2B Glued Styling Spiking Glue travel size in the box. When I recently went to get my hair done, my stylist used this on my edges. And my edges actually held down longer than usual. So when I saw this product I got excited about laying my edges down in this summer heat. I find it interesting that this was even in the beauty box, because the brand is more male targeted. But I’ve seen more females using it for wig placement and as a edge control because of its super holding powers. Great Marketing Strategy!



I have used Pantene Dream Care Shampoo and Conditioner before, not my favorite choice to wash my natural hair with. For the sake of having these travel sizes, I will use them the next time I travel (put them in my carry on).

Detoxifying Mask

Hello Beauty!

Last night I did another facial from my Peel Off Mask Gone Wrong blog a few weeks ago

img_7564This mask was much better than the last one I tried. Instead of a peel off, this mask is a paper mask by Yes to. I have tried a paper mask before and I think they are a great innovation to cut down the mess that can come with mixing and applying a mask. Paper mask are also convenient when it comes to traveling. I wash my daily every night with a daily facial wash and rinse it with cold water and a rag every morning, but I like to do a mask once or twice a week.

img_7636The Yes To Tomatoes detoxifying Charcoal Paper Mask is great for cleaning your pores. It is made with 96% natural ingredients with no parabens or silicones. I am really interested in this charcoal trend of beauty products. Charcoal is a natural detoxifier and impurity remover to deep clean skin.




I decided to use this mask the other day because I fell asleep with my make-up on. I normally wash my face once I get home from work, but it was just one of those days. I woke up the next morning with make-up all over my face. I didn’t do a mask right then, or I would have been late for work. So once I got home I looked through my collection of paper mask and choose this one. The charcoal helps to detox the skin and clean pores from all the product on your face.




I placed the paper on my face and started dinner. After about 20 minutes, I removed the paper mask and trashed it. My face was a little wet from the liquid on the mask so instead of washing it off, I let it air dry on my face and finished my dinner. Before bed, I used my NYX water facial mist to hydrate my face and rest well.




I purchased this at Wal-Mart for $2.50. They have a endcap display of 2 for $5 facial mask. I will be repurchasing this paper mask to use again.
