It was very lightweight and was easy to apply. It looked great under my makeup! It is my new go-to anti-aging product! For just $99, this product is well worth it!

Xlear with Xylitol Products

Are you looking for a way to stay healthy in a more natural way? We loved receiving and trying out new Xlear products that have Xylitol!

One of the products we were most surprised about was the nasal spray. We had a lot of summer colds and allergies this summer and wow did this stuff work! We were really impressed. And you can use it every day!

I really like the taste and the experience with the toothpaste. It left my mouth feeling fresh and clean and the added xylitol is something that my dentist recommends!

Last, but not least, was the mint and gum. We try very hard to stay away from sugar-free gum that contains aspartame or suclarose. Have you ever tried to do that? It is next to impossible! We love that Spry features Xylitol instead! Healthy for your teeth without the side effects of other sugar substitutes.

--> Do you want to naturally improve your oral and nasal health? Xlear has an entire line of health-enhancing products that are made with xylitol, a healthy and natural sweetener. Xylitol has a wide variety of uses and benefits, from improving oral health to maintaining upper respiratory and sinus health.

Cate & Chloe September VIP Subscription Box

This post contains referral links. 

So, as many of you have noticed, I have reduced the number of boxes I get. This was more a decision of looking at everything I was getting and realizing that it was just too much than anything else. The lovely Samantha has been covering many boxes for us, so it has worked out marvelously! The one box I DID keep was Cate & Chloe VIP Membership. I just want to share why (before I get to my box). The VIP box is really something unique. You can either take the quiz, or send a list of items you like from their site, and they choose items based on your likes for you each month. You get 2 jewelry items, and then one bonus item for VIPs. Sometimes the bonus item is another piece of jewelry, sometimes it is another item. If you DO NOT like what they send you, you can EXCHANGE the items for something you want. YES, you can just send the items back and get items you want. I did this last month, and it was SUPER easy!!!! So, this is my box this month.
Cate & Chole VIP Box September

I actually did not send in a new list this month because school starting just put me off on my regular scheduling. I completely forgot, and when I got a shipping notification, I was a little nervous, but my stylist really hit it out of the park this month!

First, was the Danielle "Cherished" drop earrings. I LOVE these earrings. I honestly do not remember if they were on a previous list, but I have already worn them twice. (Valued at $125)
Danielle Cherished Drop Earrings

Then, I got these adorable earrings (which I cannot find on the site). I have worn these a few times. They are great for just a casual, every day look.

The bonus item was the make-up brush set which looks like it is really high quality, and comes in a beautiful case! I replace my brushes constantly, so this was a great bonus. I pay $39.99 a month for the box, which is not bad given the items I received. Although I think the prices on their site may be high, $20 for a pair of quality earrings is a great deal (which does not even include the VIP bonus).

StriVectin Instant Revitalizing Mask Review and Giveaway

This post contains affiliate links. 

Are you looking for freshness for your face as Fall approaches? With the colder weather moving in, it is important to keep your face looking fresh, but that can be hard to do. StriVectin recently sent us the Instant Revitalizing Mask for review and we are LOVING it!!!

First, this mask is different from most masks I have tried. It does not leave my face feeling dry and cake-y when I apply it. It goes on smooth and actually had a cooling feeling to it. I found it to be quite soothing.

You leave the mask on for 15 minutes (or until dry), and simply wash it off with water. You use it 2-3 times a week. It always leaves my face feeling revitalized, so I love to use it after a stressful day. My skin looks noticeably brighter and more even toned as well!You can find it on many sites, including Amazon!

Want to try it out for yourself? Just enter below and someone will get a full sized bottle valued at $62.00.

Charm It Review

Are you looking for that perfect small gift for your daughter? We are so excited to review Charm It! My oldest daughter received a charm bracelet for Christmas and fell in love. Since she is only 12, we did not want to pay a lot of money for an every day wear one, which is what makes Charm It so fantastic! I gave her the base bracelet.

We have slowly added more charms for events. We picked one up for back to school shopping and even picked one up for my youngest daughter who has been begging for one. There are so many different charms that the bracelet can be used for small children and big ones!

I love that they sell the charms right at the counter at Gap Kids. I usually pick a couple up when I am there buying clothes for the kids. We can also pick them up at our local Scheel's store. Looking for your own? Just check out the store locator to see where you can purchase them!

Level Foods Review

As many of you know, I am constantly looking for healthier ways to snack. My family recently tried out some Level products they sent us for review, and we were all surprised by how much we loved them.

My husband's favorite was by and far the Level shakes. They were smooth and filling. He drank them as his breakfast, and her reported that they gave him the energy he needed.
My favorite was the peanut butter cups. They really did taste like peanut butter cups and it satisfied my chocolate craving.

The Vampire Diaries: The Complete Sixth Season & The Originals: The Complete Second Season Giveaway

This post contains affiliate links. 

How about another GIVEAWAY!!!!! We are loving this one. It IS random, but if you love both of these shows, it does not matter. We still think it is an awesome prize. You are entering to win EITHER:

Both of these fantastic seasons are available for purchase on September 1st!
About The Vampire Diaries The Complete Sixth Season
The Vampire Diaries continues its sixth season with more delicious drama to sink your teeth into. In season five, after a passionate summer with Damon, Elena headed to Whitmore College with Caroline, not knowing Bonnie sacrificed her life for Jeremy’s. Meanwhile, Stefan and Caroline’s friendship deepened as they stood up to the Travelers, a nomadic witch tribe driven to strip Mystic Falls of magic and cast out its supernatural residents. In the shocking season finale, Damon, fearing he would lose his loved ones on the crumbling Other Side, made a huge sacrifice to bring them all back — with catastrophic and heartbreaking results. Season six follows the characters’ journey back to each other as they explore the duality of good versus evil inside themselves. Matt Davis reprises his role as Alaric Saltzman, recently returned from The Other Side. Plus, the season will make you misty-eyed as the departure of a major character will turn lives upside down and leave us asking what happened to Mystic Falls.
 About The Originals The Complete Second Season

As Original vampire-werewolf hybrid Klaus Mikaelson returned to the vibrant, supernaturally charged city of New Orleans in season one, he was stunned to learn — along with his siblings Elijah and Rebekah — that Hayley, a werewolf, was pregnant with his child, and his vampire protégé, Marcel, whom the Original siblings had thought long dead, was ruling the French Quarter. Soon, a bloody war escalated between vampires and witches — the stakes raised by powerful teenage witch Davina and by Klaus’s bond with Cami, a student with a painful past — and a ruthless pack of wolves seized the opportunity to stage a violent coup. Now, in season two, a new status quo must be adjusted to, as the newly empowered werewolves control the city. Klaus struggles with weaknesses as Elijah desperately tries to save Hayley — now a hybrid — from a vicious spiral of self-destruction. Meanwhile, with the re-emergence of several Mikaelsons, “family is power” takes on new meaning.

Birchbox August 2015 Review & Coupon Code!

Disclosure: This post contains referral links.

I am a brand new subscriber to Birchbox and just received my first box in August! I've gotten a couple of their boxes before, which were gifted to me by a friend, but this is my first time as a subscriber and I am so excited!

About Birchbox:
Every month, Birchbox subscribers will receive a curated box of beauty, grooming, and/or lifestyle samples, picked to match your profile. Customize your shipment by picking a sample or adding subscriber-only product deals! The box includes five products and costs $10/month.

Outer Box:
The shipping box is pretty small and fits inside of my mail kiosk.

Inner Box:
OMG, how cute is this?? I love how it looks like a little swimming pool! I'll be saving this box. I don't know what I'll use it for, but it's just too dang cute to throw away!

Birchbox ships via Newgistics and USPS. My order was processed on the first of the month because I was already a subscriber and I received my tracking number on August 9th. It arrived on August 14th.

First Look:

Second First Look:

I went ahead and peeked ahead of time, so I knew which samples I was going to get.

Front of Information Card:

Back of Information Card:

The inspiration for the August 2015 Birchbox was "Soak it Up!" and celebrating the final days of Summer. Let's check out what I got!

Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle (Full-size: $21.95): This is a leave-in spray that offers a TON of different benefits. It's an instant detangler, thermal protector, UV protector, and it seals the cuticle, smooths hair, locks in color, and adds shine. Whew! I'm excited to try this product. I love hair products. I live in Florida and definitely need the UV protector and the smoothing features because my hair gets frizzy in the humidity. And I like that it has a thermal protector because I blow dry my hair. The size of this sample was 2 oz. The size wasn't listed on the bottle, but I found it in the Birchbox Shop shown in a travel kit and the picture was the same size as I received. Based on the retail price of the full-size 8 oz product being $21.95, it costs $2.74 per oz, making this sample valued at $5.49.

Dr. Jart+ Vital Hydra Solution Deep Hydration Sheet Mask (Full-size: $6): I've seen these masks online and have been wanting to try one! They are like a sheet that goes over your face with cut outs for the eyes, nose and mouth. They are so creepy looking, but I am fascinated by them! I can't wait to try it. No calculation needed to figure out the price of this sample. It's $6 per mask and I received one mask.

R+Co Death Valley Dry Shampoo (Full-size: $17-$29): I LOVE dry shampoos. I can't get enough of them. I don't wash my hair everyday, so a dry shampoo is a MUST HAVE on non-washing days. This one says that it adds volume and body, which I need because my hair is getting thinner and flatter as I get older! Super excited about this product. The size of this sample was 1.6 oz. Based on the retail price of the full-size 6.3 oz oz product being $29, it costs $4.60 per oz, making this sample valued at $7.37.

Sometimes Birchbox puts their smaller samples inside another small box. Isn't it adorable? I reuse these for mailing small items to people! The next two products were inside of this box.

Supergoop! Daily Correct CC Cream SPF 35 (Full-size: $32): I love Supergoop as a brand already, so I'm excited to try out this CC cream. I love that it has SPF in it, which I need daily in Florida. I also like using CC creams instead of foundation during the hottest summer months because it's lighter coverage. When it's over 100 degrees, your face feels like it's melting off the second you walk out the door! The size of this sample was 3 ml. Based on the retail price of the full-size 47 ml product being $32, it costs $0.68 per ml, making this sample valued at $2.04.

TheBalm Cosmetics Balm Desert Bronzer/Blush (Full-size: $21): This is a tiiiiiiny little sample! I hope my makeup brush will be able to pick up enough product to try it out! A friend used it and said that it's beautiful on, so I'm looking forward to using it. I love using bronzer as a contour in the hollows of my cheeks and at my jawline. I haven't figured out all of the other contouring products out there, so bronzer is a perfect beginning step at learning! The size of this sample was not listed. I would estimate it to be about 1/4 the size of the full-size product. Based on the retail price of the full-size product being $21, a quarter sized sample would be valued at $5.25.

I'm really happy with the samples that I received in my first Birchbox! I feel like they were tailored to my profile really well. I'm excited to try out everything! Based on the price per ounce of each item, I estimated this box to be valued at $26.15. Definitely worth the $10 that I spent on it and the $5 worth of points that I got back by reviewing the products!

If you would like to see the unboxing video that I created for this box, visit my YouTube channel by clicking HERE.
