I have a gift idea for someone with dry hands! I talk about this because my hands have been horribly dry and chapped. Here is a product that is fantastic. It's Barielle's Intensive Hand Treatment Cream.  

This product is a hand repair cream that comes with  white gloves to wear to help keep in moisture and repair hands overnight. It is recommended that you microwave the gloves for 10-15 seconds to make them warm before putting them on over the hand cream.

Plus Save 20 % and get free shipping if you spend over 60 dollars with Barielle. The Intensive hand cream retails for $20. Go to : http://www.barielle.com/barielle/control/main to find out more.

FTC Man- I recieved the Barielle Product to try for possible review. I was not paid and my thoughts are 100 % honest.

PACIFICA Fragrances

Hey Everyone!

Aren't beauty products fun?? I have a fragrance "gift recommendation" for you guys. It is Pacifica fragrances. Pacifica makes fragrance, candles, body lotion, body wash, soap and body butters.

I think it was when I was in 8th or 9th grade , but I used to spend a long time scanning the shelves at Sephora. In the fragrance section I remember the PACIFICA fragrance bottles really drawing my attention. I'm a very visual person, and I always thought these bottles and boxes were so visually enticing! Look BELOW , Aren't they so fun!??

When I first discovered Pacifica, I think my mom got me a fragrance for christmas or something. This was my first one, and I LOVED IT. It's called WAIKIKI PIKAKE. The name means peacock and jasmine, it smells of delicious sandalwood and jasmine. It's probably my favorite scent I have discovered from the line...but I have not smelled all of them! I also first tried this spray perfume, which is what I am most used to. These retail for $22. NOT BAD!

 

The other two scents I have tried are the newest one, California Star Jasmine and the Tuscan Blood Orange. Out of the two of these I'd have to say I like the tuscan blood orange better just because it smells so much of orange. It smells sweet and delicious and if you like oranges , you'd love this! The california star jasmine is a little too jasmine smelling for me. But, the Waikiki Pikaki is better! (In my opinion)

Also, I tried the roll on perfume and the solid perfume. The roll on is easier to apply then the solid but they both seem to stay on just as long. If I had to choose between spray, roll on and solid, I would choose the spray perfume.

Roll on retails for $12.00 and the solid retails for $9.00. I'm telling you they make a really cute little gift for someone who loves scents.

[slideshow]

You can find these at Sephora stores, or Whole Food Grocery Stores. :) Pacifica believes in recycling and making all there products from natural and essential oils. Here is the "pacifica manifesto" that is written on their website. I had to share it with you all!!

"The Pacifica Manifesto.  Love what you do and do what you love.  Great waves
make for great days.  Don't follow trends, follow your heart.  Invent a new world and keep ties to
 the old one. Be an environmentalist.  Fearlessness is our most valuable
natural resource.  Bring your family along.  Romance, travel and adventure
are all in a day's work."
  
Here is the pacifica website for you all to take a look: http://www.pacificaperfume.com/
  
FTC: I did receive 2 of these products for possible review. However, my opinions about
 these products are 100 % honest as always and I was not paid for this review.
 
Thank you all for reading. Stay tuned for my next post : My top 10 MAC eye
shadow picks for dark skin tones.

Dark Kiss~ Bath and Body Works

Hey Everyone! What do you all think of Bath and Body Works? I've watched many beauty reviews on B&B works candles, but I haven't seen too much on the fragrances and body products.

Growing up, I had lots of B&B works products. I remember in 8th grade, I had the Moonlight Path Scent and I loved it. Now, every time I smell it I think of 8th grade and all the memories come flooding back. But, my point is that in my 20's I haven't had too many of their products.

I was recently sent some things from the DARK KISS collection. I received an Eau de Toilette, a body lotion and shower gel to try. When I try products, the real test for me is if I continuously use them day after day, week after week. And, the eau de toilette and shower gel have been products I have been using quite frequently.

 

 

What I love about this fragrance is that it smells very sweet, slightly rich in a berry scent but with a little musk to it. It's not too fruity, and reminds me a bit of  Aquolina Pink Sugar. Here's what's inside:

 

 

  • Top Notes: Bergamot, Incense, Mirabelle Plum, Black Raspberry
  • Mid Notes: Amber, Burgundy Rose, Geranium, Peony
  • Base Notes: Dark Vanilla Bean, Labdanum, Vetiver, Sensual Balsam, Musks
  •  I think it's a very sexy but sweet fragrance and love this scent for fall. I also think the purple colors with silver in the packaging are very pretty. The looks alone would make me want to buy this fragrance. Dark Kiss Eau de Toilette retails for $29.50 and the shower gel retails for $10.50.  You can find out more on the Bath and Body Works Website!

    Disclaimer: These products were sent to me for a possible review. I was not paid for this and my thoughts are 100% honest. As always.

    Have a beautiful fall day everyone!

     XOXO- LOVELO
