Balmshot SPF 15 Lip Balm Review and Giveaway
I have mentioned how lucky I am to live at the beach and on the coast of San Diego. While the sunny days outnumber the cloudy days, there is a downside – chapped lips.
Since I live close to a convienent store, I often take walks to get a coffee drink or to get laundry quarters. There are days that the wind coming off the ocean and reaching my lips is a bit harsher than I am able to handle. The other problem I suffer from is lack of water in my daily routine. I try as I might, but just do not get the water intake I should have which results in dry chapped lips.
I go through an adequate amount of lip balm, and am always looking once that moisturizes, protects and has a pleasant flavor. When I was recently contacted by a company whose lip balm is in gun shells, it got my attention. Balmshot Lip Balm comes in one of the more unique packages I have seen, as well was being a beeswax SPF 15 lip balm.
Peaches & Petals Subscription Box – February 2016 Review and Giveaway
I will be honest and let you in on a secret – it takes a lot to really impress me and make me giddy with excitement. One of these things that does accomplish this is candy scented products. I love the smell of sugar and sweet and the sweetness it evokes. I have never been a girly-girl, but there is something that is not girl, but nostalgic about candy.
With the right piece of candy, or smell, it can take you back to a time long forgotten. The memories we have can be evoked by smell, and most of us have a sweet memory tied to a sweet smell.
Since February is the month synonymous with sweetness and love, I loved seeing the February Peaches and Petals box. In case you are wondering, Peaches and Petals is taking the concept of a monthly subscription box with value and making a monthly lifestyle box.
This is a monthly box that caters to ‘fun. flirty, fashionable vintage and modern lifestyles’. What this means is that as the subscriber each month you will receive 3-5 items hand selected by the Peaches and Petals team. The items can range from books, household items, nail polish, makeup, scarves or/and something you never imagined. Additional and other items can be included, depending on the box and theme for the month.
Smith’s Lip Balm Review
It has been mentioned in previous posts that I am not a girly girl, and the problems that can sometimes arise from this life curve I was dealt at an early age. Despite this seemingly easy hurdle to overcome I have been struggling with it my whole life with being a girly girl. Despite this I am beginning to overcome. I have discovered the older I get the more I like to have a variety of beauty products to solve the inevitable ailments and beauty issues I encounter daily. The one problem that seems to stay with me is chapped lips and this could be due to being so close to the Pacific Ocean.
I recently discovered Rosebud Perfume’s line of Lip Balms and I reached out to inquire about the ingredients and they were kind enough to send me a couple to review. I was sent Smith’s Rose and Mandarin Lip Balm and Smith’s Minted Rose Lip Balm. The thing that piqued my interest is that the company has been around since 1892 and is family owned with a simple mission of offering multi-usage products that are affordable and effective.
